Please bump for deep sea thread ...its been a while
I see this posted here a lot, so what is the leading cause of death in these caves? Getting lost and running out of oxygen? Being sucked in or trapped in tight places? Becoming a snack for the evil eel monster in this thread?
Essentially, you get really really disoriented because it's dark and very difficult to navigate, end up panicking and hyperventilating, expending your oxygen or hurting yourself trying to get out
That would suck so bad. There are a million horrible ways to die, but being trapped and having just enough time left to realize how badly you fucked up is a scenario that makes me shudder every time.
