"Blind Descent" a couple of stories about Supercaves


I was driving today and I was listening to NPR.  I was only able to hear a short portion of the first story, but I wanted to put it out there for others to hear.  This exploration of "Supercaves" is totally OD&D.

In the first story here on Here & Now, James Tabor talks about exploration in recognizable D&D terms.  Awesome.

EDIT: At one point Mr. Tabor talks about cavers seeing "floating skulls" and "demon faces" in the dark!  Sounds like a mythic underworld to me!

He's interviewed again on All Things Considered.

I read a great book about cave diving last year - The Deep Below or Dark Below or something like that. Engrossing read. In the real world a D&D party would need a lot more equipment and time to do the things they do!
