((Yep. Kroshav will tell Sword that he has to hold a torch right now, and they don't know if there's anything dangerous down here, but to be ready.))

Perception: 1D20+8 = [2]+8 = 10

So is this where we plead the ruling of "active perception can't miss something passive perception would find?" XD

((Passive is the floor so Lurn always does a good job, just checking if anything else is noticed.))

Sword sends a feeling of understanding to Kroshav.

As the party reached the bottom of the stairs they all spot the doorways. They can see two to doorways to the left and right spaced 30' feet apart and ahead on either side of the hallway there are also doors spaced 30' across from each other.

Lurn spots sconses on the walls which don't look like normal torch sconses but either way are dark. Lurn also faintly hears something from down the other set of stairs.

((So two doors to the left, two to the right and four straight ahead that you can see.))

((Big, it is like the room above. From where you are you don't see the far walls in any direction. I have only described the areas visible. Jaq and Joe see additional doors beyond the light in all three directions but don't see the far walls either.))

((Ah, ok... starting to wonder if I misunderstood the room above as well! So hallways and doorways, but we can't see any of the walls? Are these passages through shelves?))

"Not down these steps yet, lets go....this way." and Jaq starts heading towards the door that is to the left and closest to him. He has his bow in hand, and his hood of his cloak still up.

As he walks he is also watching to see if any area of the floor stops being cleaned up, and gets really dusty again, like it was upstairs.

((No shelves at all on this floor. I think Lost wrote something about shelves? You can't see the far wall of the overall big room but there are inner walls and doors. I'll make up a Roll20 map tomorrow, probably should have before. It's pretty simple once you see it.))

The floor is immediately dusty once he moves away from the stairs but on this floor there are far more tracks in the dust than above. Some coming out of his targeted door.

Lurn gives a soft "Shhh," tilting his head for a moment before speaking quietly, "I can hear something further below, but I'm not sure what."

Joe nods her head and readies a firebolt, aiming down the stairs down.

Kroshav props Torch against a wall, and draws free Sword.

The tracks in the dust are a muddled mess but they are certainly not hundreds of years old. Just guessing by the size there have been a few people down here, and he can say people because it looks like they were wearing shoes or boots.

The rest of the party turn their attention to the stairs down, which like the two, descend a distance before turning sharply and presumably continuing further down. As Lurn listens to the sound the more he gets the sense that it is too regular to be a person or creature. More like water dripping or the ticking of a clock.

(Map a bit later)

The set of stairs to the left go up and the ones to the right go down. You can't actually see around the stairs turn as shown but it gives you the idea of how the stairs turn.))

Lurn eases slightly, "It's a regular sound, consistent. Not like a creature, but I can't rule out a golem of some sort."

(Nice map, thanks!)
Jaq will move 10 feet west and then poke his head into the open door and take a look.
