We had spent three days mapping out the tunnels inside the island and the search was exhausting. We got attacked twice, scared to the bone at least ten times and someone probably fell down the well again.


“Hey Joon over here! I found something!”

“be quiet can’t you see I’m busy!”

‘This is really important it’s probably the most important find during this entire dig!”

“Fine I’m coming”


A Hofferson always has to have their way, it seems to run in the family. This particular one seems to get into too much trouble, she’s never where she’s supposed to be. The tunnels are dark, damp, freezing cold, impossibly circular and very random it’s almost as if someone sent a driller on the loose to destroy the place. One wrong move and the entire thing would come crashing down on you bringing the island with it.

“Hello! Ming!”

“Down here below…”


“… you”





What I saw was amazing there were seven huge hexagonal crystal columns as clear as optical glass arranged in the form of a hexagon in the cavern with each column stretching almost 10 metres into the air and then joining the roof. Smaller crystals, about a metre high dotted the ground and other crystals made a spiral staircase up to a balcony area on the side of the cave. This balcony was created with crystals just over 2 metres tall. At the base of each towering crystal column on the outside was a large pool with two pedestals made from the glass like crystal. that appeared to be beckoning the viewer to step into the freezing water beyond them the central pool was filled with lava.


But the most impressive part of the crystal cave wasn’t the crystals, It was the objects inside them, eggs, hundreds of different kinds of eggs! There was one for each column, each egg in suspended animation as if it were trapped by the crystalline column just waiting to be hatched.


“This is amazing” I stared in wonder

“This isn’t all of it” teased  Ming


Ming lead me up one of the staircases to a balcony where the crystals actually formed small chairs and tables. After i was done marvelling over the crystals she pointed at the crystal walls. inside the walls were books, each written in runes. there were scrolls stacked neatly on shelves carved into the wall with candle holders and torches on stored on another shelf. Then it hit me this entire cave was a library!


“so now that we’re here should we call for help?” asked Ming

“so now you tell me we’re stuck here!”

“I was going to tell you once you go the the top of the tunnel but you fell down!”

“ if you told me when you were shouting for me to come get you I would have brought the robot!”

she shoved me into the bookshelves and one of the books fell out onto my lap the old runic text read, “Book of Dragons: A Comprehensive Guide to Identifying Dragons”. Naturally curious I opened the book and went to a random page

“Scauldron: this dragon shoots boiling water at it’s victims after heating it in it’s cauldron like belly, Extremely dangerous, If you want to train a Scauldron, the best way to start is simply to cover yourself in water. Scauldrons are sentimental creatures who love anything that reminds them of home. They also like anything that smells like fish.”


“Train a dragon? Who were these people? Were they crazy?”

The questions just started to float in my head, the drawing was quite detailed and meticulously sketched out, as I went to put the book back I saw a loose page at the back of the book, I pulled it out.



“So are we going to call for help or not?” Ming interrupted

“I don’t think we should, not yet at least, they’ll probably bring the drillers and tear this place apart. While we’re here lets read some of this stuff and scan it onto our suits.”

While Ming went to the wall and started scanning books into her suit’s memory I put the Book of Dragons back after I scanned all the pages, there were hundreds of different entries in that book alone. I grabbed another book titled, “Dragonmaster: The Legend of Garth of Izar”.

On the Subject of Hackers

please read this link, it helps to identify the different types of hackers. I have hacked computers, and servers in the past (despite not being the best at code) but I never do it for personal gain. Unfortunately the hackers most people refer to on the internet are crackers so they bring a bad light on the hacking community in general. I only learned to hack code because I needed to in order to hack my microwave and other software in my house.


Don't be a Cracker you ruin it for everyone!
