Spelunking we shall go, and, A giveaway!

Well, visiting a tourist cavern, not hardcore spelunking into a cave.

This weekend we’re taking a little getaway and one of our stops will almost certainly be Seneca Caverns, a  little tourist stop near Lake Erie that I never even knew existed, despite my interest in caverns. It may not be huge or especially colorful, but I really dig the map of the caverns on their web site which makes it look like an eight-level dungeon.

My wife says that I will never make it to level 7, but thinks my daughter can get there (I assume level 8 is off limits). If you’d like to make your prediction about how deep I’ll get before becoming lodged, freaking out, or fleeing in panic, leave a comment. The correct answer (or a randomly selected correct answer if I get more than one) will win their choice* of fabulous prizes from my collection of stuff I’m trying to get rid of.

*Some restrictions apply: One prediction per comment. Excludes boxed games. Winner must live in North America or be willing to cover postage costs over $5 US.  Giveaway cancelled if I drown in Ole Mist’ry River, fall to my death, disappear in the Wild Cave Area, or am eaten by cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers.

  1. Oh, man, I love these park maps of caves! You’re right, they’re great as dungeon maps. I used to have a really great isometric map I got at Carlsbad Caverns.

    Every dungeon needs a “Wild Cave Area”

  2. For some reason, this links to a blank page on your blog when I try to comment. In any case, I have you figured for “Foyer” initially. However, in your panic to flee, you unintentionally make it down to “Chert Alley,” before you are subdued, cuffed, and dragged–screaming–to the surface.

    • Thanks for the vote of confidence!

  3. I say Level 4 right near the Needle’s Eye

  4. I wo6ld go with level six.

  5. I am going to say you will be by rule of time and interest be on level 4 mostly but your inner adventurer will force you into a brief glimpse of the level below but only briefly. Gosh I hope I can get a handful of those wonderful minis you have for my D&D games! What a neat adventure hope you have some fun!- Alan

  6. ~rolls d8~ the polyhedral gods say level 5!

  7. And the contest is closed!
    The high water table this week left the level 7 flooded, but I did make it to level 6.

  8. I have to give you props for getting in there at all. I get palpitations watching The Descent and As Above, So Below…heck even reading
    Alan Gardner’s Wierdstone of Brasingamen did that to me.
