A Spelunker's Adventure Through Caves with Significantly Less Ghosts

1 - Time to Start
Day Nineteen

Well, this is it. Finally, after 18 days of training involving going to the jungle once and dying within 5 seconds and somehow destroying the Almighty Ghost's Clock, I feel good enough to go and actually try to find the MacGuffin or something. And I will. Well, here goes.

I start in a small room in a bit larger area, ahead of me a bland tunnel. I head forwards and break a pot. Strange, why would there be pots in this deserted cave? I don't SEE any civilization. Anyways, in the pot was a gold nugget, worth $1,000. I quickly pick it up. Further ahead is the edge of the short tunnel; a skeleton under... is that an arrow trap? I feel like Indiana Jones with this proof of civilization everywhere! Not wanting to be shot, I throw the skull into the range of the arrow trap. As I thought, the arrow goes off. But two things here, I don't think I should be disturbing these skeletons, and did the ancient cave dwellers have motion sensing technology? Grabbing a stack of three gold bars ahead ($2,600) and a gold speck with them ($500), I notice a little space above. I didn't want to waste a rope getting up those three spaces, there was probably just a gold bar and a snake in there anyways. Hopping over a bump, I encounter a much more spaceous area... How about I draw it?

After dropping down to the ledges on the right to grab the gold, I accidentally land on the snake and crush it's skull, killing it. Luckily it's head was bouncy enough to get me up to the gold. I head to the alcove on the left below the entrance, but while I do, I accidentally drop one of my 4 bombs down the chasm, exploding somewhere I can't see. Entering it, I hear a womanly scream. Is there a damsel in distress somewhere in this cave? I find a ladder hooked up to the cave wall (Why is this there? It looks so modern, how could these ancient people build it? and descend it, finding a gold speck.

At the bottom of the ladder, I see the damsel. She's blonde, dressed in a red gown. Was she at a party when an earthquake happened and she fell down while the ground sealed back up above her? She seems to have received amnesia for her great fall. So, I decided to name her. Or rather, I can't, because I'm incredibly uncreative. So, I'll call my friends for a suggestion forher name. And I guess that ends the day.

You receive a call on your cellphone.

Hey, it's me, Spelunker. (How do they get reception down here? Dang cave dwellers. They're like nazis.) I just encountered a girl with amnesia, what should I name her?

Ah, Spelunker, old chap! How are you doing? Your companions up here, the Certified United Labyrinth Investigators (C.U.L.I. for short, as you already know) are glad to hear of this exciting new venture of yours. Despite this horrible strain of the flu preventing any of us from accompanying you in this definitely dangerous quest, let it be known that we are completely supporting you...oh, and we promise to message your next of kin should we not hear from you again within another 19-day period.

Oh, you mentioned finding a dame, my good lad? Fancy that! I'm tempted to make a crass pun, but it would be disrespectful with a lady in the room. And you say you need a good name for her? Well, odds are this dame's going to be poppin' up like a rack of scones in the oven, so best to choose something a tad dignified. Now, if she appears to be of American stock, I would personally suggest 'Trixie'. But really, if I were in your shoes, I'd just tell her ev'ry name in the book 'till she found one she likes.

Again, it's wonderful to hear from you, Spelunker, and we wish you the best of luck on this excursion.

"Yes, sir, I really do want to listen to sports. Actually no I'm busy risking my life and you're trolling me on the phone. How classy."

You know what's weird? Iron Man Noir, which I just got finished with, also begins on day 19 of an archaeological trek. Funny, that.
