"Come," Ren says. "This way! We must hurry."
"Woah. Come? As in with you? Are you saying you want an escort through your own nonsense tunnels?"
Game developers: HAVE THE NPC FOLLOW THE PLAYER, INSTEAD OF THE OTHER WAY AROUND!
Ren leads me down into a tunnel, then suddenly stops to remark that one of the torches has gone out.
"So? Are we moving in? You've got a torch already. Let's get going."
Down, down he leads us on the twisting staircase, stopping to light a torch every ten paces.
We get near the bottom and I can't contain my curiosity any longer, "Just so I'm clear on this... have we gotten to the shortcut part yet?"
At the bottom of the staircase is a pool of stagnant water. And some spiders.
"Is this the shortcut part?" I ask as I hammer away at the slippery spider carapace.
"Quickly, follow me! Through the water! Don't worry. It's only knee deep!"
I hate human beings so very much.
