8. SLOPING PASSAGE
This 10ft wide passage slopes up ever so slightly, and is covered in thick webs.
Hanging in the webs are several (dead) stirges.
At the end of the passage is an old well – the remnants of its winding mechanism rotten and broken, and tossed to one side.
ENCOUNTER(S): The well is currently the home of a giant spider that has been feasting on the stirges in area 11. As well as spinning sticky webs, it also acts like a trapdoor spider – launching itself out of the well, and pulling its victims back inside.
Note to self: the well might lead to a lower level.
