96-97 If you climb out safely, you may leave through the door. If you kill yourself, go to 14. 96 Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggg hhhhhhhhhhhhhthud! That was the sound you just made falling down a pit, Pip. The whole 40' x 20' chamber is one big pit. Deep too, to judge from the time it took you to hit bottom. Deduct half your LIFE POINTS right away and pick yourself up so you can consider the situation calmly. That's long enough for calm. Now you can panic. The situation is that unless you are carrying climbing spikes, rope and hammer, you will not get out of this pit.
You stare at it for a moment in disbelief before you start to spin. Faster and faster, so that the Gorillas and the island and the lake and just about everything else becomes a total blur and you feel you must be on the point of losing consciousness completely. Spin your way to 25. 37 There is something decidedly familiar with this set-up. A touch of the old deja vu as Monsieur Sir Lancelot du Lac was wont to say in his native France. The Crypt of the Fiend, eh? Surely this can only be the ubiquitous Poetic Fiend, famed throughout the length and breadth of Avalon as the author of the worst verse that ever fell like a pound of suet on a human ear!
It's a giant spider, of course. What else could it possibly be in a place like this. Only 13 LIFE POINTS, but the bite is poisonous so that if the Spider manages to hit you three times in a row without you hitting back, then you're lethally poisoned and the Spider's next meal. The Spider hits on 6 or better and has surprise automatically since this is its home territory. Curiously enough, it is susceptible to Bribery, as you may have noticed by the asterisks, but it will demand an awful lot of gold.
