The Benders are able to put distance between them and the pink slime. Ice takes them back to the T intersection and goes down the other branch. The passage goes about 100 feet and looks to open into a room. However, Ice stops before entering the room. Just ahead of him is a 5 × 5 × 10 pit, which looks to have been roughly dug to block part of the passageway. At the bottom of the pit are pieces of what may have been a thin flagstone to cover the pit. Pieces of the flagstone are resting on and around the unmoving body of some kind of lizard which looks to have six legs.
Kitty corner from the Benders, there is an exit from the cavern which continues to the south.
“Hmmm, heya, Bex, JohnE?” Ice turned to his friends. “Any idea what that thing is? Perhaps you guys came across some book on local fauna sometime back?” The knight then peered more closely at the lizard-thing, being careful not to fall into the pit.
“I may be able to make it across, given a running start. What do you guys think? Some rope would be handy as well.”
;;; Correction: 5 × 5 × 10 feet deep. That leaves room around the edges to walk around.
“Ummm, maybe we should leave those holes alone. I wouldn’t want to think of what other nasties this place is hiding…” Ice said.
