Initial Text

Far to the west, back under the shore itself, you find a chasm that calls out to you. Between the currents and its siren's call, it would be all too easy to let yourself fall in.
Far in the distance, you can hear something like the ringing of tiny bells. Perhaps that's the call, reaching out for you.

Choice Text and Results

Stare into it

You stare deeply into the intricacies of the chasm, watching bubbles of air wander out into the lake and observing eddies form around its mouth.

You've earned 6 XP in Perception

Dive in

All you have to do is approach too close and the current grabs you, yanking you back through the tunnels. It batters you viciously against the walls before depositing you back in the mushroom-filled cavern.

You take 4-9 damage. (depends on Melee Defense, diving ability, reflexes or something like that??)

(Leads to the Mushroom Cavern)

Pull away

Low diving ability:

You struggle against the eddies and currents, eventually making your way away from the scene. Pushing through all this water is just tiring.

You've earned 3 XP in Strength
