Great Worms Of The Tunnels Of Cavitation

A giant worm that lives in the caverns of Hell and can eat people.

In Heaven it is often the best of mountain climbers who die, ascending to heights 'where wings themselves must fail, and Hope in her plumage plummet,' as one of our less-remembered poets puts it. (And, no, we are not going to name the fellow, for it is no part of the duty of this history to immortalize inferior poetasters). Similarly, in Hell it is often the most experienced pot holers who perish, dying amidst the brimstone stews of the sulphur pits, boiled alive in the lava cauldrons or eaten in darkness by the Great Worms of the Tunnels of Cavitation. [WoH Ch5]
