Oloc smiles. "Nice work, Gaven!" The Mage then begins to search the room, spending some time looking for any secret doors.
Duran also searches the room for anything of note or value. Despite their initial ragged appearance, the ghouls are not without possessions of worth. Each wears a thin necklace, bearing a tiny diamond pendant. Once Duran wipes the ghoulish filth from the necklaces, he estimates each one to be worth about 250 gp.
The abbess' skull also wears a gold circlet with the symbol of the light on the front, unsullied as yet by the hands of the ghouls. It would no doubt be worth some 400 gp, but it clearly belongs back in the tomb with the abbess.*
Gaven replaces the bones in the sepulcher in their proper place, and Duran assists him in properly dealing with the abbess' remains. After this, Gaven and Duran replace the lid.
Gaven then kneels and prays for the abbess.
Oloc, after a thorough search, finds no secret door.
So Gaven, ready to head up the northern corridor, suggests that the party move on in that direction, and everyone moves out.
Blue arrow indicates party's approximate location (exploring that length of corridor).
After several dozen feet, the way north branches to the east, and some forty feet beyond that the main way itself also turns east.
The air in the lower, branching eastern passage is again cool, like the air you felt earlier. The air farther north where the passage turns east is downright cold, and there is a very strong, foul stench of decaying flesh from that direction.
*I have added the ghouls' necklaces on the monster and treasure page. I assumed Gaven would object to taking the abbess' circlet and did not add that to your plunder; but let me know if that is not the case, and I will amend.
