Entering the Guard Bunkroom, where many of their party were last seen, Ptolmek notes that none have remained. The others must have been spooked by the dark corridors, passing Grimlock, or onslaught of giant rats. Either way, there was still a mission to complete, and having the University send reinforcements is never a show of confidence by the institution.
Blackbird follows Ptolmek's lead and heads north quickly. After being presented with such an odd note from the University, appearing in such an abrupt and startling way, Blackbird is eager to meet the others.
Morcant Gunnar sensed the hope building in his party. It is often the case that one must take a few steps backwards in order to find the right path forward again. With a bout of optimism he moves north with the group. Glancing back over his shoulder briefly to wonder at the hidden secrets that lie before them once they return to this chamber.
Wisened Gurin Firebeard looked around at the hallway and breathed deep. The smells at the beginning of a dark and dank labyrinth are unlike anything else. Adventuring is his favorite way of gathering stories for the young beards back home. With all the enthusiasm of his sixties he struts forward into the dark.
In his haste, Gurin missed the motion of a hand being raised warning of noises ahead. The leader of the party, until Gurin darted ahead, grimaced with a face twisted by frustration. Since the courtyard he'd been causing issues. Perhaps this Vault would prove the final solution to the problem.
