Entry 19

Suddenly you realize what’s been bothering you and freeze in mid-step. Right where you were about to place your boot, a patch of yellow fungus clings to the stone floor. You’ve heard stories about such things before: yellow-colored molds that grow in dark caverns and seem harmless until they’re disturbed, at which point they release millions of poisonous spores that choke and sicken hapless wanderers. You draw back your foot and circle around, careful to give the mold a wide berth. Disaster averted, you make your way to the crack in the back of the room and find that it is indeed a passageway. From further along it comes flickering light and the rattle of dry bones. If you are wounded, this might be a good time to drink your potion of healing.

To make your way down the passageway, go to Entry #5.
