The creature coughs blood, moans unintelligibly, topples and falls to the floor like a rag doll. You pant heavily after the battle, pausing only to regain your breath before getting out of here. As you lean forward, resting your hands on your knees, you notice something gleaming on the floor. Some kind of amulet has fallen out of the book you were reading. It is a thin metal disc engraved with concentric circles, attached to a string of twined hair. If you like you can stuff this silver disc into your pocket. A low noise from the corner makes you freeze. Did the fight disturb something over there? Should you like you can Test your Resource, and if you are successful you pick up enough courage to investigate (turn to 68). Otherwise, you leave in a hurry and try the other door in the hallway (turn to 58).
