ii) Fassn let out a little shriek

Fassn let out a little shriek and jumped back as the floor collapsed. “Old Ajralan, save us,” he murmured.

“This place appears to be full of traps for the unsuspecting,” Cang said.

“Luckily, that excludes us,” Shyan replied. She got to her knees to peer over the lip. The spikes were expertly carved from thick tree trunks, and a few were stained a rusty brown. They appeared old but entirely functional, as the ribcage attested.

Abianarin looked to Cang. “You not climb down, rummage corpse?”

He grimaced. “No plans to do so, thank you, Abia. Why, do you suspect there might be something valuable down there?”

“No, but you often do.”

“Forget all that,” Shyan said. She cocked her head to better read the distance across the chasm. “How are we going to pass?”
