    Striegboirk looked puzzled...

    "Hmmmmm..."

    Striegboirk dug for another booger, booger-digging was a time honored tradition that focused the brain and helped with thinkin'.

    "Mayhaps, that make the trap not work... we back up some and make bloody skellie walk thru it again, mayhaps? Wut you think? You have big brain."

    Striegboirk flicked his booger at the skellie and backed up about ten feet, bumping into invisible, smart gobbie.

    Bubissa listened to Gobs as he voiced his ideas, and she had to admit they weren't bad. Still, something felt off. She squinted her eyes scrutinizing the tracks they saw. "Perhaps tracks are a trick, leading us into more traps... this thing tricky like that. Maybe other hall where enemy is, waiting for us to kill us so they not have to worry about us." Bubissa went to each hallway and peered down both of them hoping to spot something peculiar to help them make a decision. "If you want follow tracks me follow tracks too." She said still wondering which was the right hall to go down.

    Bubissa listened to Gobs as he voiced his ideas, then spoke her own mind. "Perhaps tracks are a trick, leading us into more traps... this thing tricky like that. Maybe other hall where enemy is, waiting for us to kill us so they not have to worry about us." Bubissa went to each hallway and peered down both of them hoping to spot something peculiar to help them make a decision.

    Bubbisa peered down the north hallway a bit, staring into the gloom and listening. She was rewarded. Ahead, perhaps 30 feet, the corridor widened again into another room. A torch burned there. Along that route were three tiles that looked like trap triggers. Looking up, she also noticed nozzles in the ceiling, pointing down on the corridor. Stepping over to the dusty right-hand hallway, she wasn't surprised to see the corridor split at a "t" intersection a mere 40 feet down. The dusty footprints appeared to go left at the intersection, but at that distance, it was getting hard to see them anymore, so she could be wrong.
    "If you want follow tracks me follow tracks too."

    Gobs nodded as Bubbisa spoke. She made sense. This creature, or creatures, were very tricksy. While Bubbisa checked the hallways, Gobs pondered the decision. As chief, he would be faced with these types of decisions regularly. He needed to learn. "Bubbisa, you make sense. Enemy VERY tricksy. We IGNORE tracks. Me think you right. Tracks is trap. How look way ahead?"

    Bubbisa Perception 29 up north hallway: sees that it ends in another room (see new, top, map, which should join to hallway, but my map-making skills are shoddy at best), sees the three trapped tiles along its length, with nozzles in ceiling pointing down.
    Bubbisa Perception 26 sees a dusty corridor with tracks that ends down the way at an intersection. No traps obvious along the dusty route. Nor do tracks deviate to avoid anything (no sudden step left out of line from previous footprints, as if the track-leaver was avoiding a specific step, etc). Maybe the tracks are a trap. Maybe not. Heheheheheh!

    Sparkskar waited with wild eyes for something to happen when Strieg pressed the button. It seemed like a lifetime had passed before the slight click reached his ears, and he sucked in a breath with anticipation. Then...nothing? No door opened. No explosion of glorious fire. No sword or axe cleaved the shaman asunder and no spiked pit opened beneath their knobby knees. Nothing...

    The wizard clucked his tongue in wordless confusion. His brows threatened to overtake his bloodshot eyes before one arched upward, and those eyes darted about. Was it a trick? Would an army of undead gobs, bugbears, hobs, and ogres come crashing out of the walls, ceiling, and floor to drag them to the abyss? Or was there a more mundane purpose for the button. Perhaps the saw blades had been shut off? It would make sense. What reasonable engineer would create an impassable trap down every corridor? That had to be it!

    Striegboirk looked puzzled...

    "Hmmmmm..."

    Striegboirk dug for another booger, booger-digging was a time honored tradition that focused the brain and helped with thinkin'.

    "Mayhaps, that make the trap not work... we back up some and make bloody skellie walk thru it again, mayhaps? Wut you think? You have big brain."

    Striegboirk flicked his booger at the skellie and backed up about ten feet, bumping into invisible, smart gobbie.


    "Agreed..." Sparky answered as he slowly backed away from the visible gob. He didn't want to be too close, and Strieg was simply too close.

    Sparkskar gestured to the bloody skeleton and ordered it back towards the goblin pair. Let it be sawn in half before the elementalist risked his own hide on such experiments. But if the blades did not reveal themselves, let the skeleton lead the way further down the path.

    Sparkskar gestured to the bloody skeleton and ordered it back towards the goblin pair. "Skelly. Come!"

    The bloody skeleton lurched to life, meandering past Striegboirk and Slurry and stopping just in front of the still unseen Sparky, giving Strieg his first real clear idea of where Sparky really was. Saw blades remained sheathed and no damage was carved into the bony minion. The switch disabled the trap! What reasonable engineer would create an impassable trap down every corridors? None! This was a safety switch! So those who knew of the trap could pass it unmolested! Sparky felt as if he was on to something here. What was past this now-inactive trap, around the corner and out of sight?

    Skeleton passes through trapped area unmolested. Drop into full-round actions only, Strieg and Sparky. This may affect the others on a round-by-round basis.

    Gorvgo also the fan of the time honored traditionof booger mining. Sat with a finger up his nose and stared down the hallway with the footprints. He looked from Bubbisa to Gobs amd back again waiting for their cue.
    "Have you heard the good news?!" he said to break the silence.

    Ooc. Gorvgo will hold his action to see what the other two are going ti do.

    "Strieg found a way to disarm traps. We're moving on. Be safe."

    Sparkskar's words tickled the ears of Bubissa and Gobs through the spell-link. Then he addressed the blue-skinned gob directly. "Good job, Shaman. Now we go forward."

    The wizard looked up and the blundering skeleton the stood before him. It's features were strange, he noted as he stared at the bone structure of the dead human. It's head was pitifully small. Smaller than even Sparky's unusually small skull. Sparky wondered how it could have possibly contained a brain in there.
    Its appendages were too long, and it looked like it would tip over at any moment simply because of the unnecessary height. It was beautiful, but necromancy was an art that he did not relish as much as pyromancy. The creature had its uses, but little more. Such a monstrosity could only be improved if it were aflame. Sparky made a mental note to figure out how to create beings of fire somewhere down the line. Elementals!

    "Go. Lead." He commanded the skeleton with a gestured and a couple words, and soon the bony corpse was moving forward, bypassing the spinning sawblades and into the beyond. "Kill any enemies with your claws."

    Satisfied that his protective spells remained intact, the wizard was ready to move on. He hesitated for Strieg to take the lead and fell in behind.

      Spoiler: OOC 

    Order the skeleton forward as described as a free action.
    Move to follow Strieg down the hallway the customary 10' behind.
    Standard action to move defensively.

    Striegboirk hoped that the nasty nasty blades wouldnt slice Striegboirk's pretty face as Strigboirk advanced down the hall. Striegboirk winced as Striegboirk walked past the slicey blade place.

    Slurry followed and peed as Slurry walked, cuz that's what nasty dire rats do.

    Striegboirk, and an invisible Sparky, trundled around the corner past the slicing saw blades, unmolested in the wake of the bloody bone minion. Beyond a small room opened up, ending the corridor abruptly. Strieg and Slurry immediately set to exploring, looking around for any triggers or traps waiting to harm the spellcasters. Sparky himself aided their efforts. Even unseen he was able to help, investigating with a critical (and magically enhanced) eye anything that stood out. THeir efforts were rewarded.

    On a wall to the east was another hidden panel, easily revealed by the discolored wall section. On the western wall were a series of tiny holes covering the whole wall from shoulder height to ankle height. To Sparky's vision, magical auras emanated from deep within those holes, faint, but from all of them. The northern face, curiously, also held a secret panel, door-sized like the one to the east, but better made, and far better hidden. In addition, just beside Sparky was another small panel in the wall, set at goblin height, likely another button to de-activate the saw blade trap. Even as the pair were taking in all of their new discoveries, both goblins detected a faint click from within the walls, not dis-similar to the one they heard when they pressed the button to deactivate the saw blades.

As the three of you finish looking around the room, Sparky and Strieg both hear a slight click from somewhere within the walls, just as they did when the panel before the saw blade trap was pressed.

    Spark's ears twitched when the click sounded through the walls. It occurred to him then that the blades had likely just been reset. They were stuck. Perhaps, but there were worse things.

    There were holes in the walls that revealed a very interesting secret to the pair of gobs. Magic emanated from deep within the recesses of those holes and his bloodshot eyes nearly ached with longing. What could be beyond the wall? What was the source of power hidden within? Then another thing occurred to him. What if these holes were filled with arrows or pikes that would gouge and impale them if they moved?!?

    "Don't move Strieg. Keep your rat still!" He imparted the words through their magical link and froze in place. They would be butchered by the sheer number of holes, should there truly be another trap, and all before he had a chance to clutch one of the storied lichstaffs. No. Now was not the time to die.

    "Gobs, come back to the main hallway. We found a way through, and a way to stop traps. Come back the way you came and make a..." he had to think a moment to direct them properly, because the path to the left was actually their right, and he didn't want to stear them wrong. " ...right." There was, of course, the very likely scenario that none of the other gobs knew their left from right, and if so, his imparted thoughts would be meaningless. But wait, Bubbisa had held her axe in her right hand, had she not? "Come back and go the way of the lady gob's axe hand." That should work. "We found something magical!"

    Now there was the matter of delaying their deaths. There was another button within reach. Perhaps, if he pushed it, they would stop the possible traps from poking them full of bloody holes? He had to try. Sparkskar reached out to push the button and winced as his finger touched down.
