43 GUARD ROOM. Two bugbears, and a dwarf are sitting around a round wooden table in the center of the room, playing cards. They use small wooden tokens in place of stakes. They are serving themselves from a huge jug of sour red wine.
Brok the Bugbear (AC 5; MV 9”; HD 3+1; hp 12; #AT 1; D Hand axe or footman's mace +1 due to strength; SA Surprise on a 1-3; XP 183) 6 gold crescents, 8 silver spanners, 12 copper pieces

As is usual in this place, the bugbears are wearing purple and green striped outfits. Each has a hand axe, which they will throw if they can before closing for melee, should it come to fighting.
Thov Thovisskald, Chaotic Evil male twilight dwarf Fighter (AC 4; MV 6”; F3; hp 13; #AT 1; D Rainbow magic short sword or dagger; S 14, I 10, W 10, D 11, C 14, CH 9; XP 112)
Thov likes to visit Brok and Belcher occasionally. They were prisoners once together in the Lower Dungeons and escaped at the same time, thus establishing an unusual friendship. He wears chain mail armor and uses a shield decorated with a displacer beast rampant on a green background. Thov wields the rainbow magic short sword and a dagger. His belt pouch contains 15 gold crescents, 2 electrum lugdushes, 3 silver khurams, 32 silver spanners, and 5 copper pieces.
The room is dimly lit by a single candelabra with tall green candles. There are four mismatched couches and a coffee table in the western portion of the room. A small crate of forty six green candles and four barrels of salt pork are against the west wall. One of the barrels has been opened and the meat has spoiled. Against the south wall rests Thov's heavy crossbow, a case with seventeen bolts, and a backpack with three changes of clothes and a full water skin.
