Yes, I finally here.
This is the third, and last, part of the Daorm caves. You can check out the previous parts here and here. Today we’re visiting the second path that leads to another series of caverns below the Daorm caves.
This place is closer to the surface than where the other path leads. Most of it is natural. Most of it. If you explore the caverns a bit, you will find the entrance to a series of rooms that are definitely not natural.
The walls of the first room you will come across are full of cracks. One of the pillars is completely destroyed and another one is ready to collapse.
The left room doesn’t appear to have anything of interest. There is debris in the form of parts of the walls that have cracked. Scraps of materials, such as wood and fabric, can be found but they are so decomposed that you can barely recognize them.
In the room on the right there’s a magic circle. The runes still appear to be working, and are glowing on a pale blue light, creating an eerie atmosphere in here. Also, the runs are written in a language that appears to be very old and hasn’t been spoken for quite a long time. This makes it hard to figure out the purpose of this magic circle.
Finally, there are a couple of the caverns that aren’t easily accessible. They aren’t hidden, exactly, but the entrances are very narrow and can’t be discerned easily. These are connected by a long path. This path is the only place in the caverns, apart from the room with the magic circle, that has light. In this case it comes from an insane amount of mushrooms glowing in various colors.

I hope you will find this map useful. If you end up using this map please let me know how you used it. Also, any feedback would be really helpful. Is this the last time we visit the Daorm caves? Probably. Well, it depends on what the magic circle is. But, as I said last week, I will try experimenting with buildings.
And until next time, have fun!
