    Who wants to go first? Lucia? Mishkala? Titian and I are hardly well-equipped to deal with psychotic, shambling corpses.

    "Shuffling corpses are hardly a threat" Lucia went on ahead, pushing past spidergirl.
    Abigail was apparently pretty shit at picking people for jobs, they can't even gather documents from a mansion.

    The group descended a dark stairway about 20 feet before coming to a cold, damp, stoney hallway. Presumably it was once a wine cellar or dungeon, but most likely it had last served its master as a laboratory.

    There was one doorway at the end of the hall, and another off along the right wall. Ominously, both were sturdy, metal, and large enough to accommodate most Flesh Golems, at least if Abigail's own creations were any indication.

    Titian took a vial out of his pack, and nervously approached the door on the right. He tried opening the door while holding the vial in the other hand, like he was ready to throw it or something.

    The door opened into another narrow corridor. This one had one door on the end, and one on the left. The right wall, as far as Titian could see in the torchlight, was covered with shelves containing various limbs, organs, and appendages stored in preservative jars. Some of them had clearly gone 'rotten' and were heavily decayed and rotted, while others seem to have retained their preservative fluids and were still 'fresh.'

    Oh - And there was a Flesh Golem. The heavy, vaguely humanoid thing had an upper body covered in eyes and an otherwise featureless face. Its eyes were looking at Titian but it didn't seem to be attacking or anything. Maybe it wasn't 'on'?

    Upon seeing the Flesh Golem, Titian tossed his vial of acid at the thing, then pulled out of the room and slammed the door shut. "Oh shiiiiit..." Titian backed away from the door, realizing the mistake he just made. "Guys.. Theres a golem in here, and I might have pissed it off..."

    Titian's words were a bit unnecessary - the group could hear the great lumbering thing stomping towards the door. It probably would have roared if it had a mouth.

    The metal door may or may not be strong enough to keep the Flesh Golem in there - and assuming it is strong enough, the Flesh Golem may or may not be smart enough to open the door. If you intend to try and fight it, roll for initiative and include it in your post. If you don't intend to fight it and think the think is both unable to break through the iron door and unable to figure out how to work a doorknob, post as much so I know.
    Either way, you can also attempt a Knowledge (Arcana) check to see if you know if Flesh Golems can open doors. Mishka gets a +5 on the check due to her relationship with Abigail and the fact she's probably had Abigail showing off lots of her creations for her.

    Titian knew that most flesh golems dont use doorknobs. "Maybe it can't break through..."

    Lucy's glowing eyes widened as the abomination charged the door. Come on, Lucy, come on. You've read about this somewhere, you've read about everything.

    Lucy knew that only a tiny minority of Flesh Golems have the mental and physical dexterity needed to work doors, and most simply make their own entrances and exits.
    As for whether or not this Flesh Golem was strong enough to break down the door... who knew? The door was iron, and it was pretty thick.
