2566               Far below you is an active volcano, from which great gouts of molten lava come surging  out,
2567               cascading back down into the depths.
2568               The glowing rock fills the farthest reaches of the cavern with a blood-red glare,
2569               giving everything an eerie, macabre appearance.
2570               The air is filled with flickering sparks of ash and a heavy smell of brimstone.
2571               The walls are hot to the touch,
2572               and the thundering of the volcano drowns out all other sounds.
2573               Embedded in the jagged roof far overhead
2574               are myriad twisted formations composed of pure white alabaster,
2575               which scatter the murky light into sinister apparitions upon the walls.
2576               To one side is a deep gorge, filled with a bizarre chaos of tortured rock
2577               which seems to have been crafted by the devil himself.
2578               An immense river of fire crashes out from the depths of the volcano,
2579               burns its way through the gorge, and plummets into a bottomless pit far off to your left.
2580               To the right, an immense geyser of blistering steam erupts continuously
2581               from a barren island in the center of a sulfurous lake, which bubbles ominously.
2582               The far right wall is aflame with an incandescence of its own,
2583               which lends an additional infernal splendor to the already hellish scene.
2584               A dark, forboding passage exits to the south.",
