As she works on the torch, she notices two more oddities on the bottom of the pool. "Everyone, there's not just the torch down here, there are two smaller items sitting next to it - but they're too small for me to loop with a rope noose! One looks like a key, and one looks like a...I think it's a scroll case, made out of bone. How can we get those up?"
Finding snags the everburning torch quickly and pulls it up out of the pool of acid. The rope is even holding up pretty well despite being soaked in acid. The torch is a simple steel rod, on the bottom of which is a strange series of notches that suggest it was once part of another object.
On cue, two of the statues spray the acid mist!
Tech: #2 and #6 attack this time... acid spray vs fortitude:
Galad: 11, miss
Ambrose: 21, hit, 6 points damage
Spirit Companion: natural 1, miss
Vondal: 8, miss
Finding: 12, miss
You've defeated the skeletons, their bones now litter the floor just like they litter the bottom of the pool. Yet, the danger is not over; the statues continue to spray acid at you! Combat rounds are still going because of this.
