Diesel fetched a stray dog from town and tossed it into the window. The effect was immediate. The cats went ballistic and the witch let out a shriek as the animals flew into a panic. The party dropped into the slime by the roots of the hut and began to hack at the bamboo pile that held it up. The moldy pile gave way exposing a low cellar set out with rotten logs for growing mushrooms. The floor was stone blocks, ancient but finely hewn, and a spiral stair in the corner led down to some deeper sub-cellar. They immediately set for the stairs, but were quickly stopped by a rockfall a few turns down. It took them some time to clear the rocks, but the witch was still too distracted to hear their excavation. Past that obstacle the stairs descended deeper into the earth. Lighting a torch, Arrowroot led the group down into the depths.
