    Anthony almost laughs at the struggling templar, after barking orders that basically reiterate what he said the young pup looks silly struggling against a door. Moving beside the young one, Anthony throws his weight into the door.

    Tulkar sputters a series of defiant words under his breath when told to stop arguing, but complies. He sulks for a bit, and it is clear to see on his face.
    His only response to Darius is a not, but he takes the helmet nevertheless, and dons it on his head.

    When asked to, Tulkar steps forward silently, and looks at his companions. He meant it as a look of "get out of the way," or "anyone want to give me a hand so I can get a plus two on this check" look, but it could well be interpreted as channeled rage and hatred towards the group. With the deformed half-orc jawline, it can be so hard to tell sometimes.

    With the group throwing their weight into it, the door groans and resists, before popping open with a sharp crack. Light spills in from outside, revealing the room inside. You all pause for a moment, listening, but nothing seems to have heard the door. Stepping forward, you're able to take a look around.

    The room is quite large - nearly forty feet on a side, if you're any judge. There are brick cooking ovens, tables for the preparation of food, and cooking pits, many still hung with rusting kettles, everywhere. If that wasn't enough clues, the film of grease that still covers everything would convince you this was the kitchen.

    There's two other doors in the room, both closed; one lies in the west wall, the other opposite it in the east wall.

    Seeing that there is no threat in the room, Alexis checks that there are no unpleasant surprises in the room, before heading over to the west door, and investigating it.

    Before she starts checking, "There may be traps here. Kobolds love trapping things. I will check for them."

    Alexis' diligent search of the room reveals no traps.

    The door set in the west wall is in much better condition then the door leading outside, and appears to be unlocked.

    Still playfully amused by the show of strength, or lack thereof, while trying to pry the door open, Uriell maintained a straight, emotionless face. Upon heading into the room, Uriell holds up the light to try and illuminate the room the best he can.

    Seeing Alexis finish her search without indicating any traps, Uriell lowers the lamp, and places it on a nearby table.

    "So two doors, East and West it would seem, any suggestions on direction?"

    Putting your ear to the door, you can hear nothing on the other side. A quick inspection confirms that there are no traps apparent, and that it's unlocked. All that remains is to pass through it.

    Crap. Sorry guys, I meant to drop Alexis a note, forgot. For speeds sake, when you search a room for traps, I'm assuming you also check the doors leading out of said room (the visible ones at least). So as far as I was concerned, the door had already been checked.

    For future reference, if you search a room for traps, I assume you search the doors as well. I do NOT assume that you search each item in the room (like say, a chest). Same goes when searching for loot - if you search the room, you check everything in it, and will be alerted to containers, but you don't search the containers themselves. Dead bodies are considered containers in this sense.

    Tulkar follows through with the rest of the group. He bears his arms as well, and is mentally preparing to invoke his hexblade curse again. He idly tosses his throwing axe just high enough to spit it a full rotation and catches it, a habit he has become fond of in the past few hours.

    Keeping his wits about him, Tamni'el also followed through, pulling his bow out as he awaited for any possible moment when the goblins would attack. "That may be, but they may potentially have some surprises in store for us, some we may not notice until we walk right into them." He then began to pay attention to the surroundings, to see if he could hear or see anything in the room.

    Darius was last through the door, making sure nothing entered the room behind them while they were in there. His movements were regrettably loud on the floor beneath them. They'd have to rely upon ferocity in combat rather than trying to sneak around any fights.

    "Nothing's followed us in from behind."

    He closes the door they just walked through. With luck, if anything had been watching them outside, they'd only have a 50/50 chance of following them through the correct door. Turning around to face the room, the bell on his weapon jingling softly as he did so, he took in the scene before him. Scanning for potential threats.

    Moving through the door, you find yourself in the dining hall Alexis had seen earlier through the windows. Most of the furniture in this large room has been reduced to splinters or is missing, but there's a bit left. Judging by the soot in the large fireplace that fills the east wall, some of the missing tables probably ended up as wood for more recent inhabitants.

    The room has many doors leading out from it, in addition to the one you entered in, which appears to be the smallest - probably a servants entrance. There's two doors each in the south and north walls, opposite each other, and large double doors set in the center of the west wall.

    Upon entering the room, Alexis searches it. Assuming that there were no traps detected, she heads to one of the doors in the north, checks it for traps, and opens it. If the doors there lead to different rooms, she will repeat the procedure on the other door. Assuming no kobolds in these rooms, she will check them for interesting things as well.

    Through the north door, the room is mostly empty, save for a few mostly rotted heads mounted on the wall. You're fairly certain that this used to be a smoking room for the men of the house; even after all these years, the faint smell of tobacco clings to the walls.

    The only doors into this room are the ones on the south wall, leading back into the Dining Hall. A search for traps reveals none, but while checking the room, you do find something of slight interest. Hidden behind the wood paneling on one wall is a small sideboard, filled with bottles that once held alcohols. They're now all empty, except one in the back that remained sealed. Unfortunately, you can't be sure of the contents, since it bears to label. Perhaps a mystery for later, or a celebratory drink when the day is done.

    Well, this room was not interesting, but the contents were. I think I will take this drink for later use.
    Alexis then returns to the Dining Hall, and asks the others
    "I think that the south doors lead to a similar, small room, whereas the west door probably leads to kobolds, as it is the main entrance room. I will check the south doors, then we should go through the west doors prepared for combat."
    Alexis checks out the southern doors, and the room beyond.

At the very least we could act as a human shield while Alexis set about her work." Anthony then lets outs a massive bout of flatulence and quickly moves out of the impending stench cloud.

    Keeping a keen eye for anything suspicious, Uriell remains quiet as they search the house. Listening to everyone's suggestions, he has no qualms as of yet with their ideas.

    Wondering to himself, Perhaps this is a good time to check the map, and verify our bearings.

    He is about to say something when Anthony let's out a low rumble followed by a horrid stench.

    As if being cattle prodded, Uriell quickly moves from behind Anthony, and even Hu whimpers as he rubs his nose trying to get the smell out.

    "Well if your sounds don't alert the kobolds, that smell sure as heck will," Uriell says as he holds his nose.
