Continues on from here:
Annie froze when she heard about the potential to meet a minotaur. Her mind tried make sense of it. The rats weren't too much of a surprise, because they could be just results from a science experiment, if anythign. But then a minotaur?! How could humans possibly defeat that? Then again, if the walls and weird layout was possible then anything else could. This was some sort of ghost house anyway. Annie dreaded what else there could be. Hydra? Creepy eyeball monsters? Ceberus? She cringed at those thoughts. But just as long as she followed the rules she would be safe right? Uh, what were the rules? There was so much going through Annie's mind that she didn't know what to think. She seemed okay so far, so maybe that was safe.Annie
You inspect the carpet, but it is one long roll and does not give. There is no way to remove it. As you speak up, the other four turn back to look at you. The woman you closed the door responds.
"I like the way you think, but we're safe right here. See the carpet? Every written report we've seen says that this hallway is like a checkpoint. This hall is safe, and so is whatever room we're about to enter. But after this, anyone can die at any time."
She looks back to the door ahead of the group. The man who was identified as Patrick answers your second question. "Most everyone here has only dealt with the rats. But on a different raid, we encountered a minotaur. Out of our group of four, only two of us survived." He shakes his head slowly. "The more we break the rules, the deadlier the house gets. If we stay holed up in the parlour for too many more days, the house might just kill all of us outright. Now, let's keep moving."
With that, he opens the door. The room inside is brightly lit with silver candles. The flames from these candles emit no smoke. There is a single, expertly carved wooden door on the other side of what looks to be a very formal greeting room.
When they entered the room, Annie studied the door for a moment. "Why do I have this feeling that something judgemental is beind that?" Annie tried to peep under the door to see if anything was there. Next she walked to the silver candles. They were pretty (or maybe it was just the want of having inventory for any situation that came up). Annie looked towards the others. "Hey guys, do you think it would be okay if I took the candles? I'm thinking about it from a game perspective - is it against the rules to take a candle? Maybe like the auras we have, these candles can let us see special things" said Annie as she tried to think back to the candles she saw earlier in the room with three doors. What colour were they?
Whether Annie was allowed to take the candles or not, she would then slowly tiptoe up to the large door and press her ear to it to see if she could hear anything. Her hands were shaking a bit... she didn't want to hear those creepy noises again. Did they live in the walls only? She hoped they weren't in the doors.
If Annie didn't hear anything, she would politely knock on the door... Though if she did hear something, then her plan would change.
(The OOC me doesn't quite remember if there were specific rules, but I mostly think about this with a survival mindset)
