In the year 2034...
Mining can be dangerous, being crushed, suffocated, or trapped and starved to death are only the usual risks. You could also be redirected into the sewer and drowned, shot by other rogue miners, or eaten alive by monsters from the depths. But they pay is good, the right merchants will pay handsomely for minerals or metals, and the wrong merchants will pay the gear you steal from other miners.

"No effin' way, man! I spent a lot of money on this, and you come barging in out of nowhere demanding arms." I laugh at the entity, "You're a weird alien."

I meant "the hell", yes. What's the value of these rocks? If it's under 10$ a kilo, I'm going deeper.

The match flares a bright blue color and is very good for illuminating the area ambiently, it dimly. From the beautiful patter cast of the ceiling by the match you can see that someone has scratched the words to Tom Waits'es Underground into the concrete.

I will try and pick up maybe 3 kilos of the rock, dump it in the locker and go to the next level down.

"Again, I'd have to say no. It's nothing personal I am just unsure of your intentions. Listen, we've got to get going, and it's up to Alazzander and Penny here if you can tag along." I turn to the rebels, "What d'ya say guys? Can we keep him?"

You find a copper-mine in the rough part of town and manage to smash the padlock with your pick. Inside is a large rusty barn with a trap-door leading into the mine.

(This forum is set a couple of billion years into the future after the apocalypse, and after the world was re-colonized completely, most technology is at if not higher than the modern level by now, but cultural changes have occurred.)

As you journey deeper Samantharina starts humming Underground and there is a noticeable increase on the frequency of gem patches on the walls.

You do so without a hitch, but on entering the next level of the mine you have a fit of coughing because there is so much agitated sand in the air, here people are digging deeply into the gritty sand with shovels.

"Gas-mask?" It asks hopefully.
Alazzander says it can come along is it can find her own food, Penny seems skeptical.

**** IT GODMUND, THAT REBREATHER COST 100 DOLLARS!
Or was I not wearing it? I equip the rebreather and ask someone what they're digging for.

Name: Ilden A. Rendegraverâ¨
Description: Ilden was born in New Greenland, He has finally acquired a Pick-axe capable of actually breaking rock & the musculature required. Ilden has followed the Mineral-Rush, he intends to acquire enough money to buy the cure for his older brothers illness. Brass colored hair, dark brown eyes and coffee brown skin.â¨
Currency: $133
Arms: None
Armour: Gas Maskâ¨
State: Bruised.
â¨Items: ,Medical Kit, Yellow lump nick-named 'Ãrevoks' Journalâ¨, Pick Axe.,
k17 micro assault-rifle 10/20

Ilden splashed into the rising water, he was swimming along in the darkness, He would drown If he didn't find land soon. He heard raspy chanting in the distance. "Ãrevoks! Ãrevoks! Ãrevoks!" To the steady beat of a drum.
Ilden swam towards the source of the noise. He saw a large raft made of mutant hamster fur, and approached it anyway, daringly. On the boat he saw Alice walking back and forth with a whip, Godmund beating the drum and 8 slave clones of his brother rowing ores, rasping the "Ãrevoks!" as they did so.
It was some kind of disease boat, Ildens brother after all had lung flake. Ilden realised he couldn't get on the boat. "Godmund! Help me! Throw your drum!"
The gun salesman got up, lifting his drum with him. "It costs $180!" He yelled, then took out a concord-forger and began shooting at Ilden, missing mostly, the shells that came out of the gun seemed unnatural, especially as they began to fill up the dark lake, soon he was swimming in waves of the metallic cylinders. Ilden grabbed his shoulder jerking in pain as a bullet hit him, then he went under, the shells somehow becoming transparent like water as he did so, he saw yellow cylinder shapes reflected off the roof of the cave.

Bang!!!

Ilden woke up in a cold sweat, he had fired his assault rifle and put a hole in the floor.

"No. I need that to waste pigs, you see. Pigs are very fond of tear gas." I explain to the creature before we leave, "What should we be calling you?"
