Light in the Ruins
After we'd spent a few hours spelunking through the upper tunnels and cave system of these umbral-saturated islands, the team stopped briefly at a fork in the path to rest up fora moment. Restless, I set out to explore one of the side passages we'd passed on the way. I could have sworn I'd seen a glimmer of reflected light worth investigating within the oily shadows.
I only made it perhaps twenty metres down the tunnel when it rounded a sharp bend and opened into a cavern illuminated from a single source: a magnificent and clearly ancient golden blade. There’s power in the Umbral Deeps. Power we barely understand. Could it save our city?
