Hello? Can anybody hear me?

"Damn and blast. Cough...Ahem. Use the other trapdoor, folks. This one is full of...well..."

*lights a match

"Oh!...weapons...and barrels...and there is a little boat over there, and a big brass thing...and HEY! This is rather nice!"

*grabs Evelyn Adler by the hand, shoves her after Cubinoid*

*pulls Angus Fitziron through trap door and slams it shut*

Looks like we will be safe in here.  Does anyone have a torch?  I'm not so good with dark places.

Would you care to give us your definition of safe?

I have a spare Edison light bulb, all we need is a source of electricity. Assuming we are in the cellar shouldn't there be an Igor about somewhere? We'll have to sneak up on him though - they don't seem to mind having bits sewn on them but distinctly draw the line at having things plugged into them...

*wakes up groggily, clothing askew, and under the shattered remains of the sideboard, lookin up at the open sky through the shattered roof*

*staggers to his knees and surveys the devastation*

Damn, that must have been an interesting soiree, I wonder what I did this time...

Hello.? Is there anyone else under here?

"Safe? We'll be safe as long as no-one closes the trapdoor...the only handle is on the outside."

"Oops. Pardon me. Didn't see you there. In fact...who is this? And could you stop that please?"

Oh my head... and this floor seems most unstable... oh, now it's settling...

*there is a dull click as the unseen trapdoor closes firmly under his weight*

Well, whatever I did,it must have sent them all packing... dash it, I'm still groggy... better have a bit of a kip here, maybe they'll turn up later...

Oh I do beg your pardon Miss! I'm afraid I have no idea where I am or how I got here. Are we still alive?

"Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you."

"Yes, yes! We are alive...hold on, I have a box of matches..."

*Strike...strike - flame!

By the light of the match, the soot covered room is illuminated. It opens into what appears to be a vast underground cavern, and the floor is partially submerged in water. It smells musty and dank, like old, wet books. Crates of strange bottles containing bits of organic matter in a strange yellowy liquid reflect the solitary orange glow of the flame. Cables and ropes swing from the ceiling, some sparking slightly with a dangerous electricity. A box of assorted dusty, weapons lies open and abandoned; the lid strewn on the floor.

Sackcloth covers up large unknown contraptions. A large brass winged vehicle of some kind sits at a strange angle; the grime of the years has mostly dulled it a sickening brown. There is a boat which is tied to an underground mooring on a little wooden pier. A rickety bridge leads to a little island on which appears to be a small underground building. Cobwebs and the muck of the years sways from the wooden ceiling like a mirage of stalactites. There is a constant tinkling of glass, dripping water, and the sound of gentle ripples from the underground lake that seemingly stretches out into the murky gloom.

*The match goes out.

Oh my!
We're doomed!
How are we going to fit all that onto our badges? They're going to be HUGE!

Hm.
Public footpath?
I say, it's a trap! It always is!
Let's follow the path, shall we?

...are you sure it's a rope? Rope doesn't usually feel like this nor does it writhe and pulse - does it?

 From far across the chamber a faint rhythmic squeak can be heard,   then a small hiss and an electrical click and a small flame appeared    "  Igor are you over there?     oh  you came from upstairs I presume, "   lights a carbide lamp whilst navigating round covered large "things" " You know it's safer to come down via the lift as some of Igors pets are loose in here, and they do nibble quite hard, especially on the wiring that's why the lights don't work in here"    comes closer    "if you have picked up anything furry it would be best to put it down very gently "     reaches group    "I heard a thud from in here and thought I'd better check I hadn't left any pipes uncapped in here on the plumbing what with Igors pets and all"
