Cracked Cup, Back Room:
"They just left? They just left. That's almost hilarious." Truman cautiously swung the door open. "We should probably warn the poor bastard. Still got your writing hand ready, Grok?"

Truman, with Oku, Room 10:Agrimony squeaks. "I...might have something...but I haven't had to use it for some time. Please, get off the bridge, just in case..."
When you are clear, she stands fifteen feet from the suspicious wall, and her eyes begin to glow so bright a blue it shines through her bird mask. "The Glyph Witch said each of us have a gift...and this is mine!" From her hands, she unleashes a trio of brilliant blue missiles of magic energy. They crash into the wall and cast up a cloud of smoke (Aaron and Sovereign will hear this from the other side). When the smoke clears, there is a large crack in the wall, large enough to see into the next room and perhaps pass items through, but not large enough to move a person through.
You see a frenzy of action, and Sovereign fleeing the scene. Two molerat-cat chimera-looking things are running around causing trouble. After leaving Sovereign in poor shape, they seem to turn their attention to the next room as Sovereign escapes.
@Mister Kent: 3d4+3 Agrimony'sTrick = (2+2+4)+3 = 11
Aaron, Room 5:"Shit, I was gonna study those monsters," Aaron curses under his breath. Oh well, better safe than sorry.
Dropping the fire, Aaron steps cautiously into Room 6, peering into the crack in the wall. "Hello?" he calls hesitantly, "Who's on the other side of this partition?" I really just want to get back to this puzzle, to be honest, but I can't just ignore this stupid crack, Aaron thinks impatiently.
Truman, with Oku, Room 10:Agrimony isn't certain. "Hmm, that way isn't known to us-oku. I think it might open...from the other side-oku..." You can see that the bridge ends up at a stone ledge but no discernable door.
Truman, with Oku, Room 10:
You move South across the rope bridge until you reach the large hall with a colorful mural (Room 7). When you approach the entrance, a hissing voice calls out:
"The first to cross these coils must dance,
The second, sing to safety reach,
The third must bleed or risk mischance,
The fourth one dies between my teeth!
But three have passed my coils today
Upon the fourth I'll slake my thirst
If any more come through this way
The fifth one I shall count as first
Those who fail this test are fools
The wise will always heed my rules!"
Truman, with Oku, Room 10:Agrimony throws up her hands while Yarrow shakes Tutsan. "It only started when he grabbed that chess piece!" Agrimony sighs. "We need to get a move on..."
"Sounds like some demon stuff," Yarrow guesses. "Uh, I don't know Infernal...or Abyssal, or what-have-you! The Glyph Witch back at the hideout, she does!"
