Morgenstern
You head forward. There's a large crate in the middle of the room with a small bag on top of it; you pry the crate open easily enough. Inside is just a huge pile of wood and vines, presumably meant for further construction but left unused.

Inside the pouch is 20g, bringing your total up to 165g.

You also check the closed door next to the crate. The door is locked.

While messing around with the crate and the door, you notice there's still another goblin in here--one hiding behind the second wooden beam, waiting to sneak attack someone. You inform Valley of the sneaky goblin, and she approaches it, club out.

Realizing that he's been caught, the goblin stumbles backward, but there's nowhere to go.

"Can you like, talk?," she asks the goblin. He continues to screech out in his native goblin tongue. Valley rolls her eyes and, with an overhead swing of her fist, knocks the goblin out cold.

You ask Valley what she was going to say earlier--now that you're out of jail, you and her should...?

"You know," she giggles, biting lightly at her lower lip. "Fuck." She steps closer to you, her height placing her massive breasts almost right in your face. She stares down at you with a wide, playful grin. "Now that there's not bars and junk between us..."

You hear more fighting, still, from the open door at the end of the room. Valley sighs. "When we're not like, drowning in goblins, obviously."

You offer her one of your Recovereats. She smiles, but shakes her head. "Nah, I'm good. Thank you, though~" She wipes a small trickle of blood from her arm. "It's totally minor, I'll save it for later. Those Recovereats are gross. They taste like... I dunno, water, in food form. If somebody could like, invent a cake that heals they'd be a millionaire."

You ask the slime which way it thinks you should be headed. It... jiggles. Distinctly. You have a long way to go toward mastering the language of the slimes.

Use the vines from the crate to tie the goblin up.
Look if there really is nothing else in the crate.
Careful go into the next room, maybe we can surprise the goblins there, the next gob juice at the ready just in case.
Tell Valley you take her up on her offer once everything in these caves is dealt with.

seems reasonable

if you use the vines to tie up the goblin, don't forget to cast reinforce on them! Or if you do something else to the goblin (like knocking it out), cast reinforce on the vines and take them. You now have a durable rope!
It could also be useful to take/reinforce one of the sticks, but considering how you already have a sword it might not worth it.

Loot the goblin.

Can we spy through the hole in the door to see what is inside?

Inhale the goblin and then take a look through the lock into the closed room.

Inhale???

Seconding this.
Huff the goblin.

Do not huff the goblin! We don't know where it's been, and I'm pretty sure we don't want to! It's probably been jizzed on repeatedly by whichever chief it serves! (This is a well-known dominance ritual among goblins.)

Bash the gob over the head and move on. We can check the crates later. For now, ready one of those exploding bottles (can we de-Reinforce them now?) and charge into the battle-noise room.

And yes, we're absolutely finishing what we started with Valley once we're clear of all this mess, and we need to make that very clear to her.

A bit of a meme from a CA livestream of TW:Warhammer 2, where they played as High Elves, but the chat kept telling them to eat the captives (Like orks do.), and it gradualy degenerated into Inhale Them!
