Carousing pt8 Underland Exploration

Why would you explore the underland instead of spending downtime in a nice safe rat infested gang owned pub?

You come from there
Your race like underground rambles
You feel like a different break
Thought you'd take a quick peak
Following clues
Went too deep in the sewers

Went too deep in the dungeon
A tentacle pulled you down
Have a look in hole under tree stump
Check out that well with the funny blind fish

Thought you'd go see the funny paintings explorers talked about
