Maren - "I'd like to try one more test if you will humor me. I'd like to see if the pads lose their danger if they remain depressed."
He pressed the third pad from left in the front row and kept it pressed to see if he could safely step on it after the steam was released. He waited long enough to be sure it wouldn't release a second burst if it wasn't reset.
Maren looked about for any device that might be attached to the trap system.
Maren - "Well it looks like a combination of hydraulics and I think it's likely that the spring traps are clockworks based. If we can find the attached system that powers it we might be able to disable the trap system. It would have to be fairly large though... It might be underground. We may simply have to walk across setting them off as we go and hope that they don't reset fast enough to burn us."
