Greed, Cowardice and Pride

While rummaging for treasure below deck of Lejon’s captured ship, Mendez hears a noise from above.
Fearing the worst, Mendez looks for a defensible position; his arrows won’t be much use in these cramped confines. Ignoring the thunder of feet above, Mendez finds a storeroom with a single narrow doorway. Even creatures the size of Kobolds could only pass through one at a time.
One at a time, Mendez fancies his swordsmanship the equal of any single opponent.
Minutes tick by…
Breathing heavily, he waits…
He waits some more…
Wait; is that Durin’s voice?
