blink. blink, shake head. flare eyes, run with, get crown, help little gnome.
Dex check? a 10. How big is this room? Is there anything in here a cavalier might be interested in...? A pony! What else is on that shelf....? Wis check? well you can't do everything right....I guess.
Straight razors are good for cutting out tongues I would imagine. I cut out the bad guys tongues before I forget. Sure you might think that is a really evil thing to do. Ok I don't do it, but you sense an internal struggle of monumental proportion taking place inside our brave chevalier, like an insanely loud waterfall you can't hear. "If I cut out the tongues then nobody could cast speak with dead and that makes figuring out what happened here all the more difficult, if we can pull this off. Hrm they are just corpses now. I did help kill them. How bad is it to cut out the tongue of a dead person. I mean they are dead, and doing that part of it doesn't really bother me. It's not like doing it to a living being. Why do they call it mutilation when you do something fairly practical to an object? Corpse mutilation, we just mutilated those guys. I guess you could mutilate a painting, but mutliate a fishing pole? Oh fuck, what is that gnome doing....."
