The dungeon-crawl continues.  Will Powers, Squirmy, Bonsai, and Professor Mora press on as they search answers to the mystery of these caverns far beneath the city of Rumi.  Oh, and Squirmy finds some new clothes.

SV Session 3.2

Again, my favorite line comes from Mike (aka Squirmy): “It’s like a really long fiber-optic camera . . . with a bad lense.”
