If you did choose to enter, some kind of vision in the dark is needed to see what's inside. 3 or 4 events will appear (or 5 with the Spelunking feat.) In cases in which you have no vision, the options will not be shown and there will be a chance of death or Incapacitation. A Torch with 1-2 charges is sometimes found when Entering The Cave.
Archaeology Dig[edit | edit source]

Outside the Cave, there is an Archaeology Dig. After choosing to pay 2 Rupees to the archaeologist, you will enter the Dig and will face up to 4 levels involving 13 potential challenges. Failure will result in Incapacitation or death, but finishing the 4th level will give you a legendary Artifact.
