You stand and brush yourself off, assessing the situation and making sure nothing seems broken. You're a little bruised, but nothing to bad.

You quiz yourself to make sure you still know who you are, as you've heard many stories of people who happen to wake up in strange places not knowing who they are, but you forget what that's called.

You are Demesi of Angoldas, but your friends always just called your "Deme" (apparently two more letters was to much for your lazy friends). You are a Nedynvor, which is odd, because Nedynvor usually stick to the sky, and you are clearly in a hole in the ground.

It is dark. There doesn't seem to be much down here with you, just a few small rocks, and what appears to be a small hole in the base of the wall.
No. 782 ID: c80cec

Can Deme climb/fly out of the pit? Failing that, examine the small hole.

You've been ROBBED! It's getting to the point that a person can't black out in a hole in the ground without being taken ADVANTAGE OF anymore!

All you're left with is your LUCKY SCARF (for all the good it's done so far) and a can of MUNDU WORMS FOOD RATIONS, though one seems to be missing, it appears your burglar didn't take a liking to Nedynvor cuisine

Considering the avian frame, Deme should be light enough to float. If not, I hope he can swim.

as high as the water has gotten, you would have to dunk your head in to reach the hole again, and with the thick texture and unpleasant smell of this water, that's something you'd like to avoid...

Luckily, your light avian frame makes you fairly capable of floating, even though you've never actually learned how to swim, good thing all you have to do is stay at the surface.

As the water gets within arms length of the mouth of the hole the pouring slows to a trickle and you clamber up onto the ledge.

Wonderful, now you're soaking wet, cold, and smell AWFUL... but at least you're out of that hole. Your body can deal with the cold for a little while, but with the damp clothing adding to your problems, you'll need to find a way to dry off sooner, rather than later.

It is dark so your vision is limited. There appears to be an EXIT to what you believe is EAST and WEST

Well, no point waiting around. Time's a wasting. We need to find a way to warm up or dry off, and there's probably at least one person on the board who wants to see your weird dinosaur body naked, so taking off your clothes probably isn't an option.

I think this is a good a place as anywhere to strain our brain meats and remember what the hell were we doing before we ended up in this cave. Had we a destination? Some sort of chore? Were we carrying anything important?

You wrack your BRAIN MEATS trying to remember what you were doing before blacking out. All you can recall is that you had stopped to eat near a hill, then you woke up in the hole. Unfortunately, Nedynvor aren't known for their long term memory.

You attempt to haggle with the merchant in an attempt to convince him to give you the axe, but Kren are notoriously shrewd business-bugs, and he refuses to yeild. You let out a disappointed sigh and reluctantly accept the PLANKTON LANTERN.

"PLANKTON LANTERNS are a favorite among us Kren. Just place some form of food into the lantern, and the plankton inside will glow as they devour it, usually providing ample light for hours at a time. A good source of food for the lantern is LIEGE FECAL MATTER. It lasts a long time as it ferments in the water. You can generally find it in pools of FOUL SMELLING WATER."

You wring out what FOUL SMELLING WATER you can from your pants into the PLANKTON LANTERN and it begins to glow, you'll probably need some more if you want that "hours of light" thing the Kren promised.

You drag the boat back up through the hole and carry it back to the Kren merchant. You offer to trade the boat and accompanying lantern.

"Oh! This One is most impressed! It gladly accepts your trade for the SHOCKER CRAB for the BOAT. Since you brought It an additional LANTERN as well, It shall give you a MAP as well! It provides a layout of the Lohrke city beyond the COG. Though, It wonders... where did you find such items?"

You pass through the check point easily, as no one is there. It strikes you as a bit odd, but certainly makes your progress less of a hassle. There is another gear on the other side which appears to have been forced open at some point.

You pass through the portal and find a cliff over looking a city. It appears a little worse for ware.

This chamber is very well lit. There are many clusters of glowing mushrooms growing across the ceiling of this cave, as well as smaller bunches that appear to be set periodically along the streets bellow.

become aware of what?

You set down with a *fwump* in the middle of town square. There is a VERY large statuesque fountain in the center, probably depicting some great leader or god of some sort. As well as what you assume is a town hall, or possibly a library, judging from the decorated doorways. There is a large hole in the wall and the street is covered in rubble.

That's a good question... now that you think about it, you realize that you didn't actually see a single person on the streets at all while you were passing over the Market and Residential districts...

The doors to the buildings are small, roughly comparable in size to those you found in the mushroom lake shack, so it may be safe to assume what ever lives, or lived here are short, and possibly the same as that corpse you found.
