Dungeon Dressing: Rope Bridge
The humble rope bridge has many adventages for dungeon-dwelling folk. First, it can be assembled entirely from lengths of rope, iron spikes, and pieces of firewood; in short, items that can be readily scavenged in a dungeon environment. Second, it can be quickly assembled and deployed or disassembled to prevent passage: using an axe if neccessary. Finally, even left intact, it poses some barrier to the threat of adventurers. An average adventuring party encountered a rope bridge, even assuming a desire to pass over it, can be held up for many crucial minutes and even hours of debate and discussion. Tromrick's Theives Guild has been known to offer training courses on rope bridge use and navigation, among other things.
