Heist #1: Treasure Room C

Heist #1: Treasure Room C
The treasure room is built in the side of a hill in a secluded area.  It is several miles to the nearest town; a well-known dungeon entrance is nearby, though out of sight.

The entrance is a low hole hidden behind great clumps of carnivorous brambles; these plants will animate and wrap thorny vines around any animals that come near, obtaining nutrients from blood that soaks into the soil.

Beyond the entrance is a mostly natural tunnel, widened and smoothed in some places.  The tunnel makes two corners, the second containing a trapdoor above a 5m drop (16 ft.).  There are no light sources; by the time the pit is reached, the tunnel is quite dark.

The treasure room is barred with a portcullis weighing 75 kilograms (165 lbs.).  The portcullis may be raised by a chain connected to a crank within the room; the gearing system allows even people of average strength to raise the portcullis.

Within the room is a gargoyle animated by Mr. Chandler.  His most recent instruction was for the gargoyle to “Kill any man who steps beyond the portcullis into this room”.  Only Mr. Chandler has the keys to the various chests in the room.

What’s the plan?

First, we're going to off Mr. Chandler. Sorry, old boy, but at best we need your body. Those thorny bushes call for a torch. Poking and careful walking will hopefully point out the trap door, which can then be avoided. This leads us to the gargoyle.

Remember the movie, "Weekend at Bernie's"? Dearly departed Mr. Chandler will be playing the part of Bernie in this touching remake, instructing the gargoyle (seemingly *cough*) to raise the portcullis, and to be a dear and bring out the chests for his friends so they may take the goods and sell them for donations to the Sisters of the Poor.

First, be a woman. That way you miss the gargoyle completely.

As you approach, use an incendiary grenade to burn the brambles away while you pause to file your nails. As you enter the cave, equip a head mounted LED light. using a long metal stick, tap the ground and find the trap. Then use a rocket propelled greande to blast open the damn gate. It should open the top of the trap hole as well. Reaching into your purse, bring out a plank of sufficient length to lay over the trap and cross. Enter the treasure chamber, and move to the various chest. setting you purse on the floor, bring out a power drill and use it to dismantle the locks on the chests. raid the contents . Take a moment to lick a bit of icing off your finger and then return the way you came with the cake. Get home, and enjoy.
