Nasty, Brutish, and Short
The Fungus Caves
For days, they tunneled into the earth before coming to a cave. The cave branches in several directions and most surfaces are covered with a fluffy, dolm fungus. Nyu-an, the alchemist, suggests this stuff is edible and could support the village if the caves are cleared.
So far, explorers have only found stunted, degenerate snake-men within the caverns, although some travelers described a labyrinth of worked metal and stone in which they found a smooth green hexapod with two eyes and a sharp beak.
Some scattered gold and silver has also been recovered from the labyrinth.
