8 Giant Rats (AC 7; MV 12"//6"; HD 1-4 hit points; hp 4, 4, 3, 3, 2, 2, 2, 1; #AT 1 bite; D 1-3; SA Disease; XP 11, 11, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9, 8)
2 Brown Ratkin (AC 6; MV 12”//6”; HD 2; hp 13, 8, ; #AT 1 bite; D 1-4; SA Disease; XP 54, 44)
Excavation work (by humans or humanoids, not rats) appears to have been going on in the northeast corner, where the rats are. A large hole is present in the west wall. Fourteen large clay jars are in the southeast corner. This large room has a ceiling height of thirteen feet. Dozens of metal hooks hang from the ceiling. The archway to the east is decorated with the stone bust of a horned devil while the archway to the west is decorated with the stone bust of a medusa.
The stones have been pried loose from the floor in the northeast, revealing dirt beneath. Several picks and spades are placed casually about. Buried in the dirt in the northeast corner are seven human corpses, ranging from fresh to skeletal. These have attracted the rats. One of the corpses wears a gold armband worth 125 gold crescents.
The hole in the west wall is located about three feet above the floor. It leads to the series of tunnels known as the Rat Warrens, Area F.
The clay jars in the southeast corner contain olives in oil. They are sealed in red wax marked with the Triskelion symbol and are still edible.
The hooks on the ceiling were once used to hold hams and sausages, and if examined, the smell of the spiced meat can still be detected.
