The House of Bricks
Just north of the Penprie Forest is a small stone home surrounded by a rusted iron gate. Though this structure is quite old, it is nonetheless in good shape: the walls and roof are completely intact. The front door, however, has been rusted ajar, and the windows are all broken. The House of Bricks has, of late, supported a rather nasty tenant – The Creature at the House of Bricks.
Beneath the House is a small, roughly square chamber. The walls here appear to have been worked some, and the ceiling is supported with arched, wooden beams. From the chamber extends a passage that runs in a more-or-less straight line northwest for miles, interspersed along the way with a few caves. The tunnel (and all the chambers through which it runs) appears to have been worked, though not finished. The ceiling of the tunnel is supported with rough wooden beams and the floor is flat and fairly smooth. Travel through the tunnel is at the standard overland movement rate with sufficient light, half without. About a mile through the passage opens into a small cave. There is a pool of water in the eastern half of this cave, beside which is a bucket and ladle. The bucket is a quarter filled with black dirt and mud, the ladle rusted. A small wooden bench sits against the western wall.
