You chose a
well lit tunnel and move eagerly down the rocky path. You feel as if the
temperature may be rising slightly but whether or not this is because you're
walking at quite a quick pace or for some other reason you cannot tell. The
tunnel is actually rather short and you suddenly find yourself in a roomy cavern
with a ceiling that opens up to reveal a night sky.
The dragon tilts its head at you, eyes glinting, and you have the feeling that if dragons can laugh, this one is doing its very best not to. Mirth dances across its face and its purple and green mottled hide seems to vibrate slightly as if containing spasms of laughter. You regain your composure as best you can and head for a new tunnel at the back of the cavern. The dragon trails after you for a while and then halts and watches silently as you move on.
