The Citadel of Chaos

After several minutes of shouting, you hear voices in a strange tongue coming closer.
To your relief you see four heads peering into the pit, silhouetted against the sky.
You yell at them to get some rope.
They chatter and disappear.
Eventually you hear their scurrying footsteps returning.
They stand once more at the top of the pit and throw down to you,
not a rescue rope, but the contents of a cauldron of boiling oil!
You will have to watch your footing on your next adventure, for this one is over.
And remember — strangers are not welcome at the Citadel of Chaos...

Start again from the beginning.
