We have been upgraded!
The layout is new to me,
so bear with me as I explore.
In the meantime ...
We have a shout box!
Since we haven't gotten very far,
we're still limited to non-magical humans only.
The spot where their magic is hidden hasn't been found yet,
but a new race HAS been spotted in the forest!
A town has been flooded with large/giant spiders
And a chest has appeared at the bottom of the Forbidden Cavern

Sam finished his meal in silence, and leaned back against the wall, letting out a sigh of exhaustion and momentarily closed his eyes before turning his head and looking at the chest. "I don't suppose you're gonna dig yourself outta there, eh?" he waited for an answer and assuming there was none he would chuckle and get up and get back to digging out the chest.

Sam didn't notice the chill as he worked, due in part to his exertions as well as his tolerance of it. He swung at the rock and dirt at the bottom of the chest, hoping to weaken it and let the weight of the container free itself for him.

Sam continues hacking away, a slight jump to his step as he sees his efforts are not completely. "I'll bet....there's gold......and rubies....and goblets....and...crowns..." he huffs ad puffs in between strikes of the pick, sweat glistening on his brow and arms.

A cold wind suddenly blasts through the cavern, and the chest falls completely free from the wall, angled for right near Sam's feet.
Above him, the crowd is starting to disperse completely and the natural light seems to be waning. His first torch also seems to be dying as well. Behind him and to his right, come the faintest sounds of movement from what might be some distance away.

Sam shivered and raised his left arm over his face at the unexpected blast and jumped back, startled, as the chest landed right next to his feet. "Gah!" he rubbed his arms. He noticed it getting dark and set his pick down and fumbled around in satchel for his lantern and would light it and use it's light to inspect the chest. "Hmm, I probably shouldn't stay down here too much longer..." he said to himself as, though he hadn't heard any noise over his exclamation , he was beginning to feel a little uneasy. That being said... "...but let's see what's in here first"

(is alright thanks for correcting yourself)
It's a good thing he lit his lantern, because his torch would completely go out due to another cold wind. More sounds of something moving from a distance behind him would become apparent, and they are getting closer. If he were to look through the stone mine tunnel, he'd see a large shadow and something small popping up and reflecting some of the light from his lantern.

A large, segmented and hairy limb like thing sets out into the edge of the light. Soon more little orb like things start reflecting light. Another legs sets down close to the first one and the large shadowed figure starts coming closer to where it can be seen.

Sam would switch the lantern over to his left hand as he picked up his trusty pick with his right and hold the lantern out further as he stood up. "By all that is holy please let this just be my imagination" his legs beginning to shake.

( I'm sorry if you happen to have a fear of spiders o.o; )
The legs brought forth the large shadow further into the light, so that it was obvious that what Sam was facing was a five foot tall spider. It paused as it stood there, it's fangs moving a bit as it watched him.
After the moment passed, it lazily inched one of it's legs closer towards him.

"Suddenly I understand why no ones come back from here..." Sam would breathe as he began to back up slowly, his eyes looking around for anything: an exit, a giant fly, a mine ballista. Anything that would distract the monster or get him out of the mine.
