Wanting to investigate the turn, P. Ecstasy enters first, followed by Tas, Nodu, and The Seeker. Delectable and The Emerald Blade of All Challenges are the last to squeeze them into the tiny space. The tunnel being only four feet high and and four feet wide, it is cramped an crowded with 7 bodies squeezed inside.
P. Ecstasy looks to the right, although there is little light at the back of the tunnel, he can make out that the three conveyor belts converge and drop their payloads a single, massive belt heading away from the machine shop.
[1d6=5] Four of the treaded machines with the torsos and heads of men enter from the hallway from which you have just come. The machines head over to the sight of the explosion. In the tongue of the ancient space aliens, the following conversation takes place.
"R-1428, they must have come this way," says the first to another.
The machine known as R-1428 responds, "Search room while I request assistance. The Metallic Duke will want to here about this. I will report and return. Copy?"
"What are our orders should be come across the contamination? Exterminate or add them to the stock pile?"
"Capture and add to the stocks"
The machine known as R-1428 begins to roll towards doorway.
They don't appear to have seen you. Do you pull our trigger, Emerald Blade, and release your arrow, Delectable or do you continue along the tunnel.

Emerald Blade raises the launcher to prevent the second speaker from warning The Metallic Duke, but holds at Tas's whisper. If Delectable's arrow is released, so too will an acid grenade be launched at the 'bot mentioned above.

After squeezing their away to the end of the group--which is no meager feat--P. Ecstasy and Iszak try to follow the conveyor belt they are standing to where is meets their others. The sound in the tunnel is nearly deafening as they approach. In the distance, maybe 50 or more feet off, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Meanwhile, Delectable lets her obsidian tipped arrow fly [1d20+4=6], and fly it does--right into the back wall.
Seeing detectable's arrow fly, The Emerald Blade releases the trigger and with a bang a metal sphere flies across the room towards R-1428. [1d20+4=18] The grenade explodes and sends corrosive, sticky acid in all directions. [1d10=8;3d10=17 Both The Emerald Blade and R-1428 fall to the ground--The Emerald Blade from the recoil and R-1428 from being rendered inert.
The other four machines haven't even turn to see their superior fall.
Your intentions for the following round?

"Zis is worse zan I thought," mutters Iszak to himself.
If there is no moving machinery visible along the conveyor, Isak continues on toward the light. Otherwise he will not risk traversing the tight tunnel, and will advise the others to head back so that he too can get out of the tunnel.
