Try and grab the crown
You get closer to the slime pool and can see a green tentacle wrapped around the crown, holding it up just above the surface. Looking into the pool you can see something very big and nasty looking moving around down there.
You try to decide what to do. You could try to snatch the crown, hoping you could grab it quickly enough that the thing in the slime pool can’t react. Or you could drop a big stone into the pit to try and scare the thing away.
