    Feagon, silent through the exchange, just nods silently as he considers the impact of what is said. An orc-dwarf war will spill out to the surrounding areas, incorporating in other races into the combat, as each draws its allies in." he says as the humans leave. "The area around will be gutted as each seeks to keep its enemy from using its resources. This is good for no one. I agree, we need to move forward and stealth is the best option.
    Any other ideas?"
    he says as he tests his string on prepares his bow, letting Tarak take a long lead on him.

    Grack leads you past the offshoot tunnel, into a large cavern filled with boxes and crates.

    "These weren't here when I snuck through. They must have put them here to block off the stairs to the east. We'll need to move them," Grack says, and goes to lift a wooden crate from the pile against the east wall. "What's in this?" he mutters under his breath, but drops it to the north without attempting to find out the answer.

    As Grack drops the box, Feagon eyes him wearily. "Try to keep the noise down. No reason to gather attention when we don't want it, mate." he says with a friendly nod. Walking over to the box, he opens it up as he asks "So, they weren't here before? Seems an odd way to block off this way."

    As the two orcs begin moving boxes, the hobgoblin nods at Feagon's decision to check the boxes, "I'll check around a bit...make sure the area is clear."

    Suga smells flour, wool, ale, and wood.

    "Careful," Grack grunts toward Tarak. "There are lots of dwarves in the Mountain Door still."

    The cave extends to the northeast, northwest, and curves around to the west, as well as the southwest way you came from. About five minutes of clearing later, you can reach a metal gate in the east wall.

    "There are aggressive creatures near the stairs. Some kind of bloodsucking bats. We'll need to fight," Grack says.

    Tarak

    Emerging from the shadows, Tarak reaches up his baggy sleeves and pulls out Whisper. He pats the tiny bat on its head with his index finger, "Shhh....I'm sure he didn't mean anything by it." As the hobgoblin feeds his familiar a grape, it almost appears as if the bat glares at Feagon angrily before grabbing the grape and crawling back up Tarak's sleeve.

    He shoots Feagon a toothy grin and pats him on the shoulder, then motions to the two orcs, "Well...let's get on with it then. Open the gate...."

    "Bigger than that bat. And pointier." Grack holds his hands apart about the width of an adult Pomeranian.

    Suga opens the gate, revealing a large, impressive chamber with a 30-foot-high ceiling. The walls are carved in images of dwarves at their forges. Two large stone doors exit to the north and south. Several old skeletons lie scattered near the northern door.
    In the center of the floor, a natural rift descends sharply. Dozens of stone steps lead down into darkness. From far below you can hear the distant sound of running water, and a curious buzzing sound.

    The answer to the WoB question is "sort of." Wall of Blades changes your AC. If you roll a 30, your AC becomes 30. A natural 20 against you will still automatically hit, but it'll be a lot harder to confirm a crit.

    S3 attack on Suga: (1d20+7)[17]
    S4 attack on Tarak: (1d20+7)[9]

    This is a nonstandard grapple; if either hits it's clinging to you. You can try to pry it off on your action, but you don't get an automatic resistance roll.

    He covers the distance to the fallen creatures quickly, bends and examines them briefly, "Stirges...nasty little beasts."
