Revenge in the Dark Jungle: “What’s in there?” “Only what you take with you.”
April 6, 2011
You enter the Swamp of Illusions. The explorers of yore called it the Piastre Swamp because it often shimmered and sparkled as if a great many shiny coins were floating in the waters.
You make your way through the swamp, wading in murky water ranging from knee-deep to chest-deep.
Glinting coins in the water dazzle and tempt you, but you resist due to your knowledge of the swamp’s treachery.

But..lo!…what is this? You catch glimpses of an exquisitely wrought silver helmet resting on the muddy swamp bottom. Unthinking, you reach into the shallow water, pluck the helmet from the muck, rinse it off and admire its beauty. Quite light for its size.
Then you place it on your head.
Instantly, the helmet becomes exceedingly heavy and pushes you down into the water and mud. Then, hands…or something…begin to grab at your legs, pulling you down.
Do you try to remove the helmet?
Do you try to hack with your machete at the things trying to pull you down?
