Hide behind the barrel on the left!

You hide behind the barrels and assess your surroundings.

Where are all the dwarves?

You start to hear a wooshing sound coming from the ramp.

The ground strikes the Axedwarf and the injured part explodes into gore!

Take Axe, lick the fluid coming out of the barrel, look for who threw the axeman off the staircase, THEN duck behind a barrel. Then proceed to eat one of your snacks, if you have any left.

It tastes like dwarven rum.

You acquire the axe and eat the last of your mantis jerky.

...Go to the door on the left over past the ramp.

You make a mad dash for that particular tunnel.

It leads to a staircase.

The air down here feels a little colder.
