#2 ~ Briar & Rose ~ Fighting Fantasy Illustration ~ RandOCtober 2023

As you descend into the basement your clattering footsteps echo between chattering voices. Gossiping between abundant vats and casks, leant upon a wine-stained oak table two tieflings turn to see to whom the footsteps belong with equally playful grins. You recognise them as those of whom the curious gnome wizard forewarned you, Briar and Rose. To invite yourself to join them turn to 273. To steal a bottle of wine and run turn to 172. To stand awkwardly awaiting a social cue turn to 330.
