Greed, Loyalty, and Adventure awoke suddenly to the site of a small glowing mouse sitting atop Ilex's head. Shaking the creature off, we all stared at it in curiosity. It was covered in tiny bioluminescent baubles and, as we looked up, we could see several more similar creatures running around in the distance, their lights bobbing up and down in the passages of the cave.

After a few minutes of watching in confusion, we ate, packed our things, and followed the little glowing mice - wherever they might lead us.

As we progressed, we noticed a bright light coming from the cavern ahead. Following it, slightly worried about what it might be, we eventually came to a breathtaking sight. The passage opened up into a massive underground ecosystem where everything was bioluminescent. Little animals scurried around, glowing. Plants grew along the walls and up towards the ceiling, glowing. Glowing insects buzzed around glowing flowers and glowing bats slept atop the glowing ceiling. We wondered what the cause of this might be, and noticed a thin, clear dust drifting throughout the air of the room. Yet, we had no trouble breathing and did not seem to be experiencing any harmful effects.

As we continued through the bioluminescent caverns, picking up a number of samples along the way, we wondered how there could be so much life in what we had expected to be such a barren and lifeless cave.

It was then that Magdalena stopped and told the group to stay quiet. As we listened, we could hear the sounds of what seemed to be a very large creature moving through the vines.

Whatever this thing was, we wanted nothing to do with it. Looking for a place to which we could flee, we noticed a round, cylindrical pit beside us, descending deep into the ground below. It was just barely wide enough for us to squeeze into, but it was the only easy place for us to quickly escape.

Yaden took a grappling hook out of his pack and fastened it to the top of the pit. he then led the way in our descent. Using his rope, we were able to make our way to the very bottom unharmed.

The bottom of the pit opened up into another series of caverns, these looking a bit more... manually made, than the others. We spent another few hours walking in the areas below, noticing pick marks in the walls and the occasional line etched into the floor. When we became tired, we made our camp, ate our meal, logged our activities, and slept.

Good Job Team. Say some pretty wildlife, then GOT OUT OF THERE before anything bad happened.

It was then that Lieyel stopped and told the group to stay quiet. As we listened, we could hear the sounds of what seemed to be a very large creature moving through the vines. But we were no cowards. We moved towards the sounds, hoping to get a glimpse of whatever they might be. It was then that we realized we need to look up. And as we did so, we found ourselves face to face with a massive, glowing spider. As the spider dropped from the ceiling towards us, our team readied for the inevitable combat. Anastasia, pushing the rest of us out of the way, scurried around the legs of the beast, distracting and disorienting it. Just moments later, she flew up and around the spider, digging her teeth and claws into the creature's neck. Clawing at its back in desperation, the spider tried to scrape the attacker off onto the nearby wall, without success. It was then that Anastasia took her opportunity to deliver the final blow, eliminating her opponent. Our enemy defeated, we continued on into a smaller side passageway. After a few hours of following the small and winding tunnels, we eventually came to a massive, peculiarly straight tunnel with rough, ice-coated sides. It measured perhaps 100 meters in width and an equal number in height. We followed this tunnel for another few hours, collecting various samples from the walls, before setting our camp, eating our meal, logging our activities, and going to sleep. [/quote]

And everyone should now have their Day 3 Logs!

13 are headed to Log 4A
72 are headed to Log 4B
92 are headed to Log 4C
2 are headed to Log 4D

The two of you headed to 4D are in for a real treat. You probably don't know who you are, and you probably think your dragons are in a very bad spot, but you've found a bit of a "secret path" to the story :O There are a number of you who had a near-miss with entering 4D as well. We haven't heard from anyone on this sort of path in the thread yet, so if you encountered a very slippery passage, do feel welcome to share your experiences.

Snowspire Aspirers awoke within the cold and barren tunnel. After a quick meal, we packed up our gear and continued to follow the tunnel, wherever it might lead - hoping that this time we might actually be able to catch it if we moved quickly enough.

Trying to keep as fast a pace as possible, we soon came to a turn in the tunnel, and then another turn, and then an intersection in which two equally round and equally straight tunnels crossed each other. If we wanted to find the creature, we would need to figure out which direction it was in presently.

Rajani began a careful inspection of the passages, trying to determine which one had been most recently traversed. It was difficult with little around but scattered rocks and ice, but we eventually were able to discern that the creature had taken a left turn most recently - and so we did the same.

As we continued in pursuit of the creature, we began to have second thoughts. What would we do when we found it? Clearly it was gigantic, and presumably dangerous. There was little way we could take it on in combat alone - and what if we found it and were unable to escape? We came to regret our decision to follow this thing and went to turn around.

We soon realized that the tunnels had led us round and round like a maze, and finding our way back would not be easy.

At least, it would not have been easy if not for Amihan, whose incredible map of the caverns would allow us to easily navigate the tunnels we had covered throughout the day. We picked out an interesting side passage that we had seen along the way and made our way back to it.

As we walked, the tunnels grew less and less stone and more and more ice - very slippery ice. If any member of the team had claimed to not have fallen on their nose at least once, they would be lying. We all fell, many times, sliding across the floors and bumping into icy pillars and the occasional rock. It would have been hilarious, if not for what would happen next.

There we were, slipping and sliding our way through the tunnel, when the tunnel began to incline steeply. It was too small for us to fly, and too late for us to try anyway. With one fateful step, we found ourselves plummeting faster and faster through the tunnel, when we began speeding full speed towards a narrow crack in the floor of the passage.

In a moment of quick thinking, Amihan called out a spell, bending the ice in a way that covered the crack. Having been saved from falling into the unknown depths of a glacier, we carefully and slowly climbed our way up the incline and away from the crack. Having realized that the icy passage was far too dangerous, we made our way back to the stone caverns.

We spent the rest of the day wandering amongst a series of small but interesting caverns. Somewhere along the line, we began to notice pick marks in the walls and the occasional line etched into the floor, but nothing particularly interesting came of it. When we had grown tired, we made our camp, ate our meal, logged our activities, and slept.

Lave is the real MVP of this journey so far, with that handy dandy map that he seems to have. Coeus is just chilling in this log (pun probably intended), but he used his magic on the previous days so I guess I should give him some slack. But Techne hasn't done...anything... yet...

We crashed into a smooth stone floor. The force of the crash left us all feeling dazed and confused, such that we ended up taking a nap right then and there.

I was also in the bioluminescent caverns, but did not find a snake? Instead, I found a hole with glitter dust coming from it... I bet Stream was happy.
Did this happen to anyone else?
Quote:
Two Crazy Teenagers and Their Chaperone awoke suddenly to the site of a small glowing mouse sitting atop Stream's head. Shaking the creature off, we all stared at it in curiosity. It was covered in tiny bioluminescent baubles and, as we looked up, we could see several more similar creatures running around in the distance, their lights bobbing up and down in the passages of the cave.

After a few minutes of watching in confusion, we ate, packed our things, and followed the little glowing mice - wherever they might lead us.

As we progressed, we noticed a bright light coming from the cavern ahead. Following it, slightly worried about what it might be, we eventually came to a breathtaking sight. The passage opened up into a massive underground ecosystem where everything was bioluminescent. Little animals scurried around, glowing. Plants grew along the walls and up towards the ceiling, glowing. Glowing insects buzzed around glowing flowers and glowing bats slept atop the glowing ceiling. We wondered what the cause of this might be, and noticed a thin, clear dust drifting throughout the air of the room. Yet, we had no trouble breathing and did not seem to be experiencing any harmful effects.

Stream, pulling an assortment of complex equipment out of her pack, began to take samples of this dust for testing. Since this was such a lengthy process, the rest of us explored the glowing caverns, looking for interesting samples to take home. When she had finished, she called the group back together to say that, unfortunately, she had absolutely no idea what this was (although it was somehow very familiar), but, she had managed to figure out where it was coming from.

Stream, led us to a far corner of the bioluminescent caves and pulled aside the branches of a strange underground tree, revealing a relatively round hole in the ground, carved perfectly straight and cylindrical, descending deeper into the ground.

Staring down into the strangely circular pit as it spit out a strange dust, we wondered how far it descended. We kicked a rock inside and listened to it as it bounced against the walls before finally hitting the bottom. It was just large enough for us to squeeze through and, well, if we wanted to figure out what all this stuff was and where it was coming from, we might as well try going down.

Amethyst took a grappling hook out of her pack and fastened it to the top of the pit. she then led the way in our descent. Using her rope, we were able to make our way to the very bottom unharmed.

The bottom of the pit opened up into another series of caverns, these looking a bit more... manually made, than the others. We spent another few hours walking in the areas below, noticing pick marks in the walls and the occasional line etched into the floor. When we became tired, we made our camp, ate our meal, logged our activities, and slept.
Edit: Ah, looks like some people got to the same area by avoiding the spider. Hmm.

When she had finished, she called the group back together to say that, unfortunately, she had absolutely no idea what this was (although it was somehow very familiar), but, she had managed to figure out where it was coming from.

Stream, led us to a far corner of the bioluminescent caves and pulled aside the branches of a strange underground tree, revealing a relatively round hole in the ground, carved perfectly straight and cylindrical, descending deeper into the ground.

Staring down into the strangely circular pit as it spit out a strange dust, we wondered how far it descended. We kicked a rock inside and listened to it as it bounced against the walls before finally hitting the bottom. It was just large enough for us to squeeze through and, well, if we wanted to figure out what all this stuff was and where it was coming from, we might as well try going down.

Amethyst took a grappling hook out of her pack and fastened it to the top of the pit. she then led the way in our descent. Using her rope, we were able to make our way to the very bottom unharmed.

The bottom of the pit opened up into another series of caverns, these looking a bit more... manually made, than the others. We spent another few hours walking in the areas below, noticing pick marks in the walls and the occasional line etched into the floor. When we became tired, we made our camp, ate our meal, logged our activities, and slept.
Edit: Ah, looks like some people got to the same area by avoiding the spider. Hmm.

Yay, I got noticed by the Dungeon Master!

@Kalideoscope, my log was very similar to yours - with the exception that Sathonyx fell while climbing down the hole.

(I got the bioluminescent passage today with a giant spider. Is that 3A or 3B?)

North, the Skydancer:

Blessed be the Icewarden that we had Emmie, otherwise we'd be dead. We started our day with going through what could be said to be a chunk of the Tangled Wood. Everything glowed with its own color, but it felt oddly dark as well. Glowing mice and fungi were at our feet, and moss grew all over the frozen walls while fireflies and sparkbugs flew around glowing flowers. I walked a little closer to Ariana today, as I had to admit that it was a bit spooky, but I had collected a lot of new samples before IT came. A giant spider, whose only traces were footprints that Ariana had sniffed out, came down from the walls. Ariana pushed me back and knocked me down, getting in a defensive stance to try and protect me as Emmie jumped over us and started to confuse the giant bug before savagely attacking the creature. When the beast was slain, Emmie strutted over to us as Ariana gushed about how impressive that was. I gave him thanks, and it was probably the first time I actually was alright with the Tundra. Now, we sit here next to the fire, as I had tended to the large Tundra's wounds from the spider, and Ariana lays asleep.

Ariana, the Knight:

I have to wonder if this cave belongs to no one territory, as it feels like there is parts of every place here in this cave. First it was bears, then deadly plants, now giant spiders. The room the beast resided in was illuminated by all the glowing lights coming from this purplish moss and red-glowing mice that resided there. When I noticed the footprints of the arachnid, I immediately braced for an attack. When the bug showed itself, I pushed the Skydancer back to keep him away and acted as a shield as Emmie charged over to attack it. The spider put up a fight, but even with a few bites, Emmie brought down the monster. He decided to keep a fang from the creature, and he had came over to make sure we were okay. North even uttered a thanks, and it was the nicest the boys had been to each other the whole trip. When we finally set up camp in a icy sub-path, North bandaged up Emmie and I tended the fire.

Emmie, the Adventurer:

I'm glad I'm not an arachnaphobe, otherwise today might not of went so well. We had ended up in some glowing chamber because we follow some mouse, and it was as if we walked through the starry sky. But the spider decided to ruin our fun time. Ariana knocked over the scrawny Skydancer to guard him while I went to fight the bug. I ran around its tree-sized limbs to make it dizzy, then clawed up its body until I was able to rip the bug apart. My prize was one of the creatures fangs, and the knight acted like she was the damsel in distress even though it really was the guy that got us in this mess. North did swallow his pride long enough to thank me though, and to be honest, the guy isn't all that bad once some common sense has been knocked into him. I'm still really sore though, so I'm gonna end the log here.

Well, another crispy spider!

Troubleshooting so far:
Mirna: 2
Hechizo Carmesi: 1
Esme: 0 (:c let's give you a story...)

Right after defeating the spider:

Esme settled down for mid-day rest time, the animal life not as active now as when they first found the cave but she couldn't tell if it was a normal cycle or a reaction to the fight and fire display. She wasn't tired though, walking barely registered as an activity no matter how far they managed to travel and throwing up a shielding spell while Mirna cooked dinner the simple way had turned into something as easy as breathing with training.

Her sister was gorging on spider carcass with the appetite of a swarming Mirror; breaking off a piece, slurping the cooked insides, and throwing away the empty charred husk for the other critters to fight over. Given the all glowy condition of the place it turned into quite the show - little lights detaching from the ceiling, walls, and plants dancing down and around the remains, bigger lights approaching in start-stop motions, taking anything they could carry then streaking away in a literal flash or just staying crunching away.

Morbid, yeah, but pretty. It was a shame that the glow vanished almost instantly from their living samples.

"Here you go," Mirna said, carrying over a bunch of fluffy purple flowers still glowing softly. She set the bundle down in front of them, sitting close to share warmth. "These should be safe and tasty!"

"Thank you, Mentor." They tasted amazing and their Mentor had brought back enough to last for some days, the rations weren't bad but they were really dry. Also, Esme could use the task of dividing and securing the plants to pass the time while the other two slept.

As Mirna rose to leave, likely to go hunt down her own meal, she patted Esme's head, it felt warmer than usual - the residual effect of using Fire magic, but just as comforting. "Good job on the shield, little star."

Esme huffed, but leaned into the touch. "Just for the record, bugs don't count as sentient no matter how big they get."

Mirna laughed.
