You poke your head into the cave. The entrance, at least, seems empty. You carefully enter.

Finding nothing immediately threatening, you walk a little farther down. The cave appears to lead straight forward, sloping gently down as it goes. You look around for any side-passages, but you’re finding it very hard to concentrate.

You look back at the entrance, only a few feet behind you. You can see the sky at your back, tinged with... yellow? That doesn’t seem right. Maybe there’s something in the air...

Then the entrance is blocked by a large blue shape. “Hold on tight, Carrot Top!” a voice cries, and you feel yourself buffeted by high-speed winds. Grabbing a nearby protrusion, you grit your teeth and try to weather the gale.

After a few moments, the cyclone winds stop, and you find you can breath easier. Much easier, in fact.

“Are you okay, Carrot Top?” asks Rainbow Dash as you step back out of the cavern. “We saw some funny-looking smoke coming out of the walls, and you didn’t seem like you were doing all that hot. So, I went ahead and blew a little fresh air in there for you.”

“I’m fine, thanks,” you tell the concerned ponies. “I just... let’s see if one of the other caves is a safer bet, okay?”

The other ponies all readily give their consent to that. None of you need to be told that strange gasses plus mysterious caves are not a recipe for anything good.
