Default [CT Only] atpollard's PbP Traveller (1416.58 - Tihomir) Day 27

[Tihomir] - [Biter 1416.58.0030 IST (9:30 PM local)] Natural Cavern [H] - Hidden cave near, Nowhere

Crawling backwards up cave [G] was uncomfortable and exhausting, but the tight spaces left little choice. Tihomir rested his arms a few minutes when he reached [F3]. Once again the choice was between the larger cavern [F4] and the small side passage [H]. While [G] hadn't been the most pleasant experience, it was not a wasted effort. So the same curiosity that drew him into [G], drew Tihomir into [H].

Cave [H] descended 1 meter for every 3 meters of forward progress and the entrance was both low and narrow with a difficult pinch point that required Tihomir to wiggle sideways through it. Fortunately, the cave seemed to alternate between chambers almost tall enough to stand in and either vertical or horizontally challenging connections between them. Standing about 2 meters into cave [H] in the first of the tall pockets, Tihomir saw the tunnel bent sharply ahead and led to another difficult pinch point. It was not the narrow tunnel that caught his attention, but something radically different. Switching off the light, Tisho just stared at the strange rosy pink glow that came from the chamber beyond the narrow space.

Shoving your arm through the opening to scan ahead with the camera before committing to squeezing your body through, the image revealed a long vertical chamber that forked about 3 meters further on. Growing from pockets of compost collected in depressions in the floor and crevices in the walls were the source of the light. A tiny bio-luminescent fungus that Sapphire was pretty sure was Netted Rose dash twelve forty-two.

"The notes say that it has antibiotic properties." whispered Sapphire.
