Micro Map Monday - 2-17-2014


In Holsfrin's Digs - several hundred feet from a barrier, past several short side tunnels,  the miner-made tunnel intersects with a natural hollow in the volcanic rock. The far wall of the chamber is the white and red stone of a tower swallowed by the mud, rock and lava of a  great eruption. A narrow window marks the center of the wall. The miners widened the opening with picks so that they could climb into the building and explore.

Tower "Ground" Level - The first level encountered of the building is roughly circular and about fifty feet in diameter. Stairs in the center ascend and descend. Possibly a lounge or library, the chamber has four pillars and two partitions. Eight windows mark the walls, some filled with flows of solid stone pouring onto the floor, while others look out onto more solidified lava.
