Since Coast takes on the rear watch, Willoughby will enter the room and look around. He's going to examine a random tool, to determine the craftsmanship. His thought is that kobold's don't make as good of stuff as Dwarfs do! Once he determines this, he will move to the south door and look it over; Hinges, the floor where it opens, the wall it's set into.
"I don't know why, but for some reason I'm a bit surprised we haven't encountered any traps in here. Well, besides the entrance caving in on us, that is!"
Given the time, He'll make a check for traps or other weirdness at the doorway. "Should we listen at the door, to be safe? According to our map, it looks like this might open into that passage that had our too-early fallen compatriot, Isidril's prison room."
Fredrick wants to make sure the south door is safe. Once he's (hopefully) sure of that, then he will help examine the tools and artifacts. He would have some familiarity with Dwarfish craftsmanship from his time with Skirvir.
This is all dwarven craftsmanship. These are all standard mining tools - picks, shovels, etc. One out of the ordinary thing you find is a pair of goggles to protect the eyes, with lenses made of what looks like glass, but rings as solid and strong as steel

"Oh-ho! What have we here?" exclaims Willoughby, as the goggles are found. "These look very interesting! I wonder if they have some dweomer about them? Might be careful, though... The last thing that did took a friend! Shall we just use a tool to brush the goggles carefully into a sack and be off out the doorway south?"
Then the young cleric looks about the room. "Did we think to have a need for a shovel last time? Or how about a pick? If we can stand the weight, should we bring some along? They might prove useful, and you just can't beat dwarfish craftsmanship! If we find Dwarfs here, and they are cross we took their things, we can just give them back."

"Those unusual spectacles do warrant further study, later," Derosh said, as he watched Willoughby sweep them into a sack. "Hopefully they will not break too easily. Shall we continue to the next room now?"
"Those goggles are neat!" whizzles Frederick. "Definitely not the crude work of kobolds. Now if you all will hush up a moment, I am going to listen at this southern door just a moment before I open it and we move through..." (unless he hears any threatening/ominous sounds)
"Hmm, do mine eyes decieve me," states Willoughby, in a loud-ish whisper, "or is that a pit of sorts at the end of the south tunnel? Hard to tell in the firelight of the torches... But if it's a mine-shaft... Perhaps that is the entrance of our goal to find the gem-mines?"
"Still," the young cleric adds, "I'd feel a bit more safe if we first explore the side-passage fully, at least up to it's junction of the north-south tunnel, so we don't have any foul thing biting at our backsides! What do my stalwart friends say?"

"Actually, the baron believes the entrance to the gem mine is on that ledge we bypassed earlier, so the mine shaft would lead in the opposite direction. Plus it does not seem like it could be a very good secret mine, since it's right here in the middle of the tunnel. Still, if the ledge does not pan out, we could always come back and look into this.
"I propose we now backtrack to the cavern where the kobold king fell -- and the ledge is -- and proceed up the north tunnel to see what lies that way, before trying the ledge."
"Hmm," Willoughby considers. "I believe you are right now that I think about it. Besides, good Derosh... It was you who had audience with the baron! I must confess your advice is the action I'd vote on taking."

"I would say it would still be useful to see what lies behind these doors," Derosh Mol said. "Then we can make an informed decision as to whether we need to look further in that direction for potentially lingering threats, or if it is safe to move on to the ledge."
