Justin nods. "That might help." he replies.

"Sorry," Justin says, "meant the other thing..."

OOC: Going to kind of make this up and compile it together.

While Ted prowls around the boiling waters of this chamber, Justin and
Alex assemble a series of lines to give everyone something to grab on

In short order everyone can safely get into the pool. Sir Prrcyvel and
his men are making a circuit of the chamber looking for any sign of
the creature, or of Louissa. The trick now is to figure out where the
creature went.

Alex can still spy a trace of the yellowish ooze on the largest
outgoing passage.
