Once again Krusten is presented with a task that makes her regret her lack of focus on certain skills. While she knows some of what is needed she is not an expert.
Stacia looks at the statue and its surroundings but do not see anything unique. She offers a suggestion, "I can attempt to return to the portal and go learn the skills necessary and then come back. The village is already clear of any who would seek to harm us so you guys can wait here. What do you think?"
Each of you analyze the statue. You know from the layout that the way it is position is hiding more than can be seen. Krusten is able to find a mechanism that opens a small window to a lever and then from there she is further above to reveal an entrance to what seems to be a tomb below.
Thorin says, "I believe we may need some things or even some skills. I will part here for awhile and return. Hopefully everything should be as it was but even so its safer to be prepared before we go down."
