Yrag hesitated only a moment and then fired another arrow into the burning mass of fungus at the bottom of the pit. The fungal branches no longer writhed or wriggled, and appeared as black as charcoal now instead of bright violet.
A minute later, the fire was dying down, with nothing left to burn.
"I should go back down," Tenser said. He looked around at the incredulous stares of his teammates, who had just rescued him from down there. "You remember that pit trap on the fourth level with the secret door at the bottom? What if this is like that? I have a hunch that fungal monster was 'cultivated' down there to guard something."
"I remember teaching you things like that," Yrag said thoughtfully. "All right...maybe we should take a look -- but I do think it should be me or Terik going down there."
Tenser, however, only grew even more resolute on the matter. When the fire was all the way gone and the pit below must be cooling, Tenser spoke with conviction.
