Another new area is on the horizon! May 12, 2015 will be the opening of the newest Duke-level hunting area, the Fungal Caverns! As I venture into this location later today and start figuring out what’s going on, I’ll add my findings to the new Fungal Caverns page here on the site. Keep it here for all my information that I discover!
Here are Larry’s updates about what’s happening!
Larry’s Cavern Report #1: The entrance of the cavern is the site of an underground aquifer. The arid desert air soaks up the water, causing the walls to sweat with humidity. Within this damp environment, fungus and other plant life seem to flourish, although they’re quickly snatched up by the somewhat amphibious mice here.
I’ve collected some plant samples and am continuing to venture further into the cavern. Small, dark passages lie ahead…
Larry’s Cavern Report #2: Moving further into the cavern, the lack of light has prevented the growth of much plant life. However, these narrow passages are rich with minerals!
Some traces of water are present, however, the cooler, drier air has made the mice much less dependent on water.
Larry’s Cavern Report #3: I’ve moved past the narrow, mineral-rich passageways and the cavern has opened up once again. Despite the dim lighting, I’ve spotted sparkling gemstones! The great riches here would make for quite the welcoming environment, if it were not for the fact that the mice here have become increasingly aggressive!
Larry’s Cavern Report #4: It’s clear that these long forgotten and ancient mice are not welcoming my presence! After pressing further into the cavern I’ve found even greater treasures! Diamonds sparkle in the walls, illuminated by light let in by tiny cracks in the ceiling.
Larry’s Cavern Report #5: This will be my final report. The usual dull sounds that echo throughout the cavern have now come to a dead silence. I can’t shake the feeling I’m being watched by something… I must return to Gnawnia to share my findings with the King before the ancient mice here are my undoing.
