Bernulfo’s stinging pride pressed him to continue onward. As he and the man he had given the flashlight to advance, the tunnel seems to get smaller. If they hadn’t been feeling claustrophobic…they might now.

I hope to God the civilians don’t panic…we could easily be killed here.

Once that thought had entered his head, it was hard to get it out. He started to sweat with the idea of these old tunnels collapsing.

They continued in relative silence until Bernulfo noticed his light hit a larger opening towards the end of the tunnel. They had been heading at a slight downward angle for some time, so he really had no idea where they were, but regardless, ahead there was an opening.

He motioned for Dante to stop.

“There is an opening ahead,” he said calling back to the civilians, there was not enough room to turn around and address them, “I will go ahead and check it out, please wait here until we know it is safe.” As an aside he motions to Dante “You feel free to come along if you like, just make sure to watch out for yourself.”

With the scarce light from the flashlights a large dark room can only be discerned in small portions. Bernulfo aims his light along the floor, eventually showing a narrow ledge which leads to a drop.

“Be very careful.” He steps forward and you can see his light start to show that there is a narrow pathway which seems to go along a larger hole. There is a smell of dampness and rotting coming from it that hits you all in a wave.

Dante recoils slightly from the foul stench that is coming from below them. Still he follows behind the solder, trying to pick his way carefully along the ledge. He shines his light around and down, trying to determine what is making that god awful smell.

As Bernulfo and Dante make their way into the room Bernulfo calls back to the others.

“You can enter now, try to be careful the ledge is slim.” There was enough room for one person to walk along fairly safely, so long as everyone stayed in single file.

As Dante looks around the room, following the light of his flashlight he shines the beam into the large pit below. The light shows a drop of about 15feet and at the bottom he can see loads of what looks to be garbage. There are old radios, clothes, and from the smell of it food as well tossed into the hole, it all seems to be rotting and has probably been there for a while.

OOC Okay both of you can make a composure + alertness roll if you want to take a closer look. If you don’t have alertness just roll composure.


Dante You got two successes and as you peer down into the trash you can notice that alot of the technology looks older, like people have probably been throwing garbage into this pit for a while, then something catches your eye. As your flashlight swings over the mess below something glitters brilliantly, you try to find it and get a better look, there's something very shiny down there that is reflecting the light of your flashlight...it's very small and it seems like it's wrapped around something that's kind of grayed and gnarled looking. You're not sure, but a sickening feeling settles on your stomach...you think it might be a diamond on a ring...so then would it still be attached? You really can't tell from this far away in the light of the flash light.

Dante taps the solder that he is following on the shoulder. When he gets his attention he points down to the shiny object down in the rancid mess of garbage.

Maybe we should try and figure out how all this garbage and such is finding its way down here. It could lead to and escape route.

“Hmmm,” Bernulfo tries to ponder Dante’s suggestion for a moment. He starts to shine his flashlight all along the outlines of the giant garbage heap. “Wait,” he says as he pauses his flashlight. Down amongst the garbage his flashlight has caught a smallish opening. Some of the garbage seems to have spilled out into it, it’s easily big enough for a couple people to fit through.

“Well, that seems like it goes somewhere.” He motioned for Dante to look where his beam was pointing. “I’m not sure how we would get down there without injury, these walls are very flat.” He kneels down and runs his hand along the edge of the pit. “We need a rope or something if we’re going to try to go down there.” It’s strange but at this point the shaken soldier seems to be asking Dante for his opinion before forming a plan of action.
