    “It is a haunt and undead in nature. I was not sure of the trigger but destroying the cage ended the effect.”
    BJ will try to recall any useful information about haunts that might pertain to this situation.

    Dorn doesn't waste time wondering what. He rushes right in past the others and right up to the cage, smashing the cage and the birds within as best he can.

    With a mighty swing, Dorn totally destroys the little cage, the birds, and display.

    There is a stunned pause, but nothing happens. After a few minutes of small talk to be sure, either there was no haunt in this "version," or the simple destruction of - whatever - is all that was needed to cleans this area.

    What do you do in here now?

    Brother Jaume will need help - the awkward nature needs more strength than he is able to easily bring to bear.

    The corpse is exactly the same as he and Brother Jaume remember. The same dead body, including the other dead body in the room. Of course, that also means you get the following from each one....
    Spoiler: Double-Dipping the Treasure
    Show
    Masterwork Silver Dagger
    amulet of natural armor +1
    (2) potions of cure light wounds

    So, besides just Brother Jaume (who seems to jump at everything; but yes, BJ, cast a vote if interested in something) ... who is interested in what? The two NPCs (Heck, Nadya) are interested in what is here as well. Heck is particularly interested in the amulet to keep his little self alive. Nadya thinks the dagger is pretty, but isn't sure she'd use it, so is willing to take a potion to hold. ("To hold" because she feels that if she had it, it would be her responsibility to not hoard it as "her own" but use it if someone drops and no healers are around.)

    "I am always one for a library," says Lord Hanley.

    Nadya, on the other hand, looks less than impressed at the prospect, until Lord Hanley lets her know that you have to go through the library to, (and here he sighs), "find anything 'interesting.'"

    Not getting the condescension in his voice, she brightens up at that. The party gets into formation and heads into the halls beyond.

    C8, Central Hallway: This L-shaped hall runs from a collapsed space in the west to a small waiting area outside the asylum administrator's office. Nadya, Jean, and Javert notice mucuslike smears on the tile floor. Dorn easily points out what was noticed before in his previous "reality," that these antiseptic-smelling smears form a trail that runs between the doors of areas C9, C10, and C13. Next to the door to area C14 is a nameplate that reads: "Administrator Eliege Losandro."

    What now?

    "And just be aware," adds Gaye, "that little bastard ratling sorcerer kept sniping from on top of a desk on the far east side of the room."

    The door is checked and Jean opens the door. On the other side of the door is a Rodent of Unusual Size(R), and another 10' behind that one! But with Former-G2's intel the party was ready enough not to be surprised.

    Begin Round One ...

    R1T23:
    One of the ROUS' (DR2) runs up into the corner by the door and tries to nip at Jean but because of cover can't quite get him.

    R1T20: A piece of rock from inside the room zooms at DR1 and misses. ???

    R1T19: Dorn, as before, two dire rats. You know they usually carry disease with their bites, but are otherwise weak. You don't see the (likely invisible) ratling sorcerer). What do you do?

    You didn't expressly state it, but your fluff leads me to believe that you are now in leaping spirit stance, so that is what I have you doing.
