"The air was thick with dust and heavy with the reek of owlbear dung. The few beams of pervading light cast shadows upon the earthen walls that seemingly danced along the rock and mud as 'Red' took each slow and carefully placed step. The passageway widened, and as 'Red' moved further into the open the shadow pirouetted away from the side and lunged toward him. Spinning round, he raised his shield high to block the creature's hands that frantically grabbed at his helm and then threw back his hammer. His hammer reached it's apex, he slowly released the breath that fouled his lungs then let loose a mighty swing at the apparition. The hammer struck! The shadow was flesh and bone! The knot that had gathered in the pit of his stomach began to subside, and using the anger that replaced his fear, he forced the Skulk away from him with his shield and readied his hammer for another strike. The second blow felled the Skulk so 'Red' stepped above the prone figure and lined up a final, crushing blow to it's head. The skull split asunder and the shadow no longer danced in the flickering light. Lifting his helm slightly he spat a gobbit of dust filled spittle on the corpse and said weezingly "You'll no be wearin' ma skin tha' day". Securing his helm back in place 'Red' moves on at an even slower pace, scrutinising each knook and hollow on the walls."
This was the first-time I have visited the cave and it was full of atmosphere and anticipation. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience which had me on the edge of my seat. I take my 'helm off' to the designers of FRC.
