The Green Lined Passage
The passage way is almost pitch black, but distinctly cooler, with a feel
of water in the air, and only a faint taint of sulphur. The rumbling
noise is also markedly less. A respite from your previous location.
You can see the tunnel gently curving from the north, and sloping
quite steeply upward toward the south-west. Thanks to small glowing dots
of a green phosphorescent moss which line the edges of the tunnel floor,
the tunnel is clearly defined allowing it to be traveled without fear
of bumping into the tunnel walls.
More green moss, glowing on the north-western wall of the tunnel, forms
clearly readable letters. Perhaps some dwarf somewhere has a hobby in
phosphorescent moss growing...
A red flicking light can be seen from both ends of the tunnel where the
occasional hot sulphurous draft, from one direction then the other, makes
you think of the terrible heat that light represents. At least here you
have some respite from that heat.
- You can go..
North toward the locked gateway.
South-West toward what must be the Viewing Balcony.
Search the walls of the moss lined passage.
