*** Tragically, later added lore revealed that this was also responsible for putting the Old Gods into contact with the Emerald Dream, allowing them to corrupt it into the Emerald Nightmare.

* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sidoarjo_mud_flow Sidoarjo Mud Flow.]] An Indonesian oil and gas company, PT Lapindo Brantas, in its search for natural gas in East Java, created a "Borehole" (a narrow shaft) into the Earth, [[WhatAnIdiot digging more then 10,000 meters into the ground (a depth no natural gas has ever been found at before)]]. [[WhatAnIdiot Having ignored sensibility]], [[CorruptCorporateExecutive they decided to ignore the law as well]], [[TemptingFate not using the required protective equipment on the drill]]. The result? Running a giant drill next to fault lines has consequences, as the poor people of the surrounding villages learned when the drilling erupted a massive mud volcano, making 1.5 million people homeless. The eruption is still going on today, years after the 2006 incident, spewing 88,000 cubic feet of mud every day -- and is not expected to stop completely for ''at least'' another 25 years. PT Lapindo Brantas was ordered to pay up to $300,000,000 in damages. The higher ups tried to sell the company for $2 to off shore groups in an attempt to avoid responsibility. They were denied.

*** There's a DLC quest where you help fund a mining expedition. Since it's under this trope, they awaken the local equivalent of graveyard zombies and get slaughtered, and you need to clear it out so another team of miners can be sent in. Then it happens again. The third time around, your partner hires mercenaries, but this means that only some of the miners are alive when you get there. The fourth time, you finally kill the [[{{Lich}} Dragon Priest]] causing all these problems. [[spoiler:Your partner's journal implies that unleashing the Priest was his goal all along. The miners were deliberately set up to be sacrifices in the Priest's name.]]
