Star Trail: One Way Door

[Part of the Darklands of Arkania Story.]

With an Eastern heading since that's the direction the heard the "Dwarven Pit" was in, the team runs into more orc patrols and harpies who are easily slain. More problematic is their low food supply. Fortunately its only a few days before the team finds the not so hidden dwarf city of Finsterkoppen in the mountains where they stock up on rations. This is also doubles as the site of the Dwarven Pit but the racist dwarves guarding the entrance prevent Pike from entering. He simply circumvents this by using his magic to temporarily transform into a dog.

Nice doggy!

In the deeper city Paeroka convinces the local temple priest in handing over the key to the sacred pit before actually finding the huge doors that lead down to it. It's made pretty clear that the key mechanism is a one way deal, and those that go in would probably not be able to go out. Dauntless, the party proceeds in anyway, finding a decomposing skeleton right on the other side of the door.

They grimly all vowed not to end up starving to death like that poor sod.
