Deep beneath the surface of the earth, Bert Masters was finishing up his morning shift. He sent the rest of the crew down the shaft and up to the top for lunch break, while he finished up the last bit of mining. When he had completed the task, he turned off his jackhammer, and propped it against an crate. Then, out of the corner of his eye, he spied a small triangular sign posted several feet down the tunnel shaft. And then more alarmingly he noticed a small pile of dynamite rigged to blow. With a miner's instinct he started running towards the end of the cavern they had been mining in, and just in time. A ring of fire engulfed the shaft. He was thrown forwards onto his stomach, landing on a large boulder. The shaft tunnel collapsed bring down several large rocks from the roof of the cavern and blocking the tunnel off completely. This was no mining accident, this was sabotage. And if Bert ever got back up to the top, he would find out who had done this to him, and make him pay...but the chances of getting back to the top were very slim.
This was my last minute entry to Round 1 of the MO. For this one it was about the lighting and incorporating the ring of fire. This was my first time working with my recent order of LifeLites, I am very pleased with how this turned out, and the LL worked splendidly.
