Carnige scowled as she examined the underside of the control panel.  No Screws.  It had been welded shut and ground smooth it appeared - she could find no seams, much less screwheads. The metal was tough too - her screwdriver's couldn't scratch it.

That said, the control panel was quite dirty, though two of the numbered keys were smudged more than the others.  1 and 7.  Could it be that easy?...

"Thank you, val. This makes it clear. Also, my Lady is strictly opposed to suicides - messes up the scheduling of postmortem punishments and rewards. So, let's not suicide our humble band against this terrible beast, and instead take this charming lady and her wee babe, in whom I sense a..." Liantirie reached out, and touched the kid's forehead, "... a bright future, to a warm and secure place, preferably a fort. There, we could rest, and inquire about the lay of the land, and tasks more suited to our skill set."

This said, Echo considered further discussion superfluous, and signified this by focusing his attention elsewhere, specifically the stone circle. What was its purpose, was there magic, and any possible benefit or threat?

The Johannes Cabal books, by Jonathan Howard - Four wonderful books starring a necromancer on a quest to bring his dead love back to life while having outlandish adventures on the way.  Also includes larger than life antagonists (Satan, Nyarlethotep, the Pope), airships, better companions than the Doctor (a vampire, spies, Nyarlethotep, inquisitors, scholars, and aviatrixes), and last, but certainly not least, more humor than you can shake a frozen trout at!

"I agree with Echo - you need near as much strong acid as troll. That's not going to work. We have to burn him to have a chance.  I think we won't be able to kill it without losing a lot of us. Each attack can kill one of us. And they get 3 attacks per round. And 6Hd.  And 19 Strength.  And a Thaco better than us.  Our best bet and hers is to get the hell out of here."

Silveressa looked thoughtful for a moment at Tusserks question, "Not handy, but the deers brain should be plenty acidic enough, earths Native Americans used the deers brain for the acid when tanning deer hides, but we'd need some kind of container it wouldn't eat through while we render it down, anyone have any empty potion bottles?"

She gave Lucky a cautious look, "Careful in a fight not to swallow any of the troll, I've read once an account of  a wolf pack that took down a troll and feasted, only to have new trolls rip out of their bellies hours later; granted it was in the Icewind Dale trilogy if memory serves, but no since taking  any risks." She shrugged and sat back down next to the fire. "If I recall right Trolls are naturally flammable as well, we could rig up some fire arrows using whatever residue is left in my oil flask and some of the fat from the deer, the pit sounds like a good idea but unless someone packed a shovel it's going be pretty hard to dig one in any practical amount of time."

"Any parts of the troll that are not destroyed will re-grow. A few vials will not do - it's not like acid eats away at the troll endlessly. Basic chemistry. Our best bet is setting the house it is in on fire, or lure it into a hole with sufficient kindling. Very easy in this damp wood."

Perking up at the mention of a troll, Tusserk looks around the group. "Anyone happen to have a few vials of acid? What about our wizard?" Casting his eyes around, Tusserk desperately wished the deer had not been cleaned so they could have used the stomach acid.

Echo briefly observed Sil in her assessment, but could not find a flaw in her judgment. Medieval people were hardier than their civilized descendants, it seemed - the woman was well.
"Come on in" came Laintirie's nod, "and tell us of what came to pass. A troll, you say? And what of Coldmoat? Is that the local lord's hold?"
"Gentlemen, we just have Coldmist on our map, by the way."
"What else can you tell us of the lay of the land?"
