You are in a wide cavern filled with stalagmites and stalactites of brightly colored
limestone. Mazy little passages twist and turn all around until finally winding out of
sight. Water drips from the ceiling overhead into a round flowstone basin, forming a
tiny magical whirlpool, then disappears down a hole into parts unknown. An unusual
stalagmite stele stands beside the basin. There
are markings in an ancient tongue inscribed upon it. To the south is an
archway outlined by the soft glow of electric candlelight.
