If you're playing catch-up, this page is on a different computer after a complete data loss. Hopefully it won't be too jarring!

Wait...the bottom of the well is sandy? oh that ain't good. I've worked with well drilling, that's not good at all!

Heheh, I don't think most readers will instantly understand that.

Oh, I dunno. I don't think you need to be a geologist to understand that well + sand is not a good thing.

As a matter of fact, I'd say it's well out of order.

[edit] Looks like the devil got into the keyboard for a while there. I've now fixed the typo and sprinkled holy water over the screen.

I'm tooo curious about what's the problem about sand in a well, aside from the obvious one that once you find just sand and no water, the well, doesn't do it's job, well, well.

Thinking about it... I'm not a geologist or anything in that direction, but it was mentioned that the city is surrounded by swamps... Swamps tend to be muddy, not sandy. So... a muddy well would be less surprising while not working any better. Dunno if that has something to do with anything or not.

Might as well clue us in. Otherwise all we have is assumptions.

You need enough deep open water to get a bucket into it, but the sand is what the bucket would hit. Sand will fill up any spaces between the well stones that allow the water to seep into the well space besides being bad for pumping equipment.

As mentioned above, a sandpoint well can be used but only within 25' of the surface with a high water table.

Did they drop a small burning cloth or something in first to make sure it wasn't filled with a dangerous gas and there was oxygen?

I remember the industrial safety lectures for what looked like a safe open pit that methane had settled in and displaced the oxygen. "Another guy saw him collapsed at the bottom of the ladder and rushed down to help, then both were dead. Then another saw both, ran over. The fourth guy realized something serious was going on and called 911 instead. You'd be surprised how many are lost that way."

She dropped some magic stuff in.

Historically it could be a small rodent or bird in a cage on a string, like the canary in a coal mine. But sure, I guess a pixie would work too. 😃

It's not a retcon. What do you think she's doing in panel 1?

dangling a plumb line to check the depth... Seriously, that's what I though!

Weighted cage with pixie to check both air and depth. More efficient!

Down in a narrow tube hunting giant worms or insects like termites, which then belch or fart displacing the oxygen with methane. Imagine RPGs where the entire team can instantly asphyxiate from a random worm fart. That'll make things more interesting.

Yeah, Venne's top and pants switched colors, but that's just a side-effect of some magic she used. And those pants still look oh so good. ;)

Welcome back!

It is a little jarring. All the ladies are clothed.
