When this contest was first released we had no intention on entering. After a few weeks and seeing a couple of entrys a few of us decided we would give it a go and try come up with something, this only gave us about 2 weeks to finish everything so there was a real push time wise for what we had in mind. This project was designed and built by NB1_ASSASSIN and grumpyguy528, I would also like to thank the following players who each made a contribution in some way to this project.
- Orkz
- RezolutinyDarek

Millions of years ago there lived a civilisation that nested above our world as we know it, the many people of this great empire lived in harmony with each other crafting advances into their world and so was the golden age.
After many years of the golden age disaster struck the empire and an illness befell its people, as the Gods left them and retreated into the heavens. They called the illness the Grief. When infected you lost control of your mind and began to hurl yourself at anything around you. The number of infected rose and rose and gradually the empire began to fall.
The last hope for its people was a small council of elders that traveled undergroung to escape the disease. They lost many of their numbers but still fought valiantly on towards the core.
By hand they began to carve their home. Through sheer determination it seemed that they would not only survive but thrive.
They began to expand as their population grew and soon all knowledge of the above disappeared as they now sustained themselves. They built great monuments to their God Neptune and built a new cavern in which they created a palace for their elders to conference.
However they did not escape death. They became old and slow. They bred less and less. Even the monsters that had previously kept them active were dying out. Soon their skin was like rock and their eyes stared unblinking into the air, and they eventually all crumbled to dust, the only mark of their existence being the city they left behind.
Many years later and a man named Steve remembers overhearing two men talking in a casino about an underground city that could potentially possess riches to last him a life time. With no hope left this was his last chance to regain his wealth and so he set off. He mined through many rocks, worked through any weather and climbed mountainous terrains, but even after several months he had still struck no luck. With little hope left Steve was on the verge of giving up, however that day he decided to stay longer in the mine. Steve was hacking away at rocks like normal when he brought his pick down on some coal when the entire mine shaft started to shake and collapse,
The warm and choking air engulfed him as he fell; down, down into the abyss of what he thought would be his death. It was not his death but his making. He fell into one of the many pools, and coughing, with his eyes watering he staggered out into the city.
He had found it.......

There should be a hole in the top somewhere which will drop you down into the cave itself.
