HAUNTED DUNGEONS, U.S.A.
Over the past few weeks, several professional treasure hunters have dissappeared while exploring a dungeon reputed to house the most priceless treasures in the world. The only known survivor has returned with stories of monsters who eliminate anyone who dares enter the dungeon's halls and complex labyrinth of chambers. But authorities are not taking such reports seriously.
"We have no rational explanation for these dissappearances," one investigator reported. "All we know is that the brave soul who wants to claim those treasures had better be sharp. At this point, the only one I know who's clever enough for the job is Winky(TM)," he told a crowd of would-be hunters. "Our hero should be ready with bow and arrows. Whoever or whatever is guarding those treasures is determined that no one come[s] out of there alive."
