Grubbe's Grub, Kobold Kuisine

[Grubbe's Grub, Kobold Kuisine]
Chain-strung lanterns provide dim lighting inside this earthen-walled dwelling.  A lopsided wooden table stands across the cramped room from a filthy glass-covered counter.  Floating in through a small round window, the salty air mingles with the scents of recently prepared dishes.  Set into the hardened dirt walls, a gold-edged metal door etched with a happily feasting kobold and a silver-painted wooden door etched with a cluster of turnips appear closely guarded by a heavily armored kobold.
Obvious exits: out
On the wooden table:
Food/Drink [3]: a bowl of egg custard, some leeches and cream, a gravy-soaked grub sandwich

Leeches and Cream  ---   Spirit Barrier
Egg Custard  ---  Prayer of Protection
Clad in armor made from left over bits of metal, the kobold squints through a dented visored helm.  In his right hand, he holds a broken-hafted halberd.

>ask kobold about name
The kobold grumbles, "Names Dredge.  Don't care what yous is."

The kobold glances at a gold-edged metal door etched with a happily feasting kobold and grins toothily before answering,  "Yous gots partishipate in Grubbe's special hunt to earn rights to enter dis door."

>ask kobold about wooden door
The kobold nudges a silver-painted wooden door etched with a cluster of turnips with his elbow and drones, "Da stuff behin' dis door is fer folks jess startin' dere 'venturin' careers.  If you gots family dat is well known, ya cain' get in.  No expections less da boss say so."

>ask kobold about door
A heavily armored kobold gives you a strange look and grunts, "Which one, dummy?"

>ask kobold about Grubbe
A heavily armored kobold straightens visibly and glances around before answering.  "Da Boss?  Good Kobold.  Smart Kobold.  Gave Dredge dis job.  Boss Grubbe make name for himself.  Yous see."

The kobold smacks his lips noisily and grins, "Boss holds a scavenger hunt 'bout once a month.  Da ingredients goes inta new dishes.  Yous hunts, yous earn points ya kin spend in'ere."  He then taps a gold-edged metal door etched with a happily feasting kobold with his elbow.
