OriginEdit

Floyd Collins’ family owned Crystal Cave in central Kentucky, a tourist attraction. He went digging for three weeks in search of a better cave system. He was leaving a chamber he found when the passageway trapped him, knocking over his lamp and pinning his left leg underneath a heavy rock. The next day, rescuers sent him food and lights but were unable to reach him. A week later, the cave collapsed further and halted the rescuers progress. They had to dig a longer path, delaying their arrival for days. When they reached the passage, they discovered Collins had died several days prior from exposure.

EffectsEdit

When lit, it will turn the surrounding area into a vast cave system. Although many of the spaces are quite large, most passageways themselves are very small and narrow. When turned off, it will make the caverns unstable and cause some of them to cave in. The user will become easily trapped and will require another to rescue them. If the light is turned on and off again, they will feel a sudden pain and immobility in their left leg.
