You enter the leftmost cavern as quietly and cautiously as you can. Unfortunately for you, your caution is not rewarded.

As soon as your body is entirely inside the cave, a mass of stone slams to the ground behind you, trapping you inside and blocking out all light. Panicking, you turn and try to find some crack or flaw in the obstruction, but it’s almost as if the cavern itself has closed up behind you. You shout and pound on the wall, but nopony answers your cries.

As you are trying to figure out what to do next, several small lights flicker into being behind you. Turning, you see a half-dozen boggies in front of you, all armed with spears and nets. One of them addresses you, saying, “So, you’re the stupid pony who’s trying to bungle our raid, eh? Well listen up! We can do this the easy way, or we can do this the hard way.” Then he pauses and looks behind him before whispering, “No promises, but if we do this the easy way, you might still get a chance to see that foal we caught go free.” In a louder voice, he continues, “Now lie down and surrender, or else we’re going to take you down like the ugly mule you are!”

You have only a moment to decide. Will you try to fight off the creatures? There’s only six of them, and they are quite small. Or will you surrender, and hope that what the boggie said about freeing Applebloom wasn’t just a ploy to convince you to give up without a fight?
