Caverns of Socrates

Our job is to escape the cave, look around, then
come back and tell the others what we have

Her form changed then, becoming a huge, shambling amorphous dark thinkg of yowling blackness.

"Demon!" cried Rith, while behind her sounded a monstrous roar, and struggling out from the stone at the demon's command came the muzzle and head of a colossal beast . . .
