Moonlight and fresh air filtered down through the large crevice, a break in the earth and rock that otherwise served as a barrier between the world of light and the tainted underground. The ancient creature perched on the crumbling remains of what used to be a grand dwarven building, the space around him long since devoid of the civilization that had made its home here for centuries. Until the darkspawn had driven them back into certain cities, the dwarves' last holdouts against the all-consuming Blight.
Not the usual place to find a creature meant for the open sky, but here Durnehviir was.
The Deep Roads were a curious place to him. There was history, but what could be considered conventional signs of history were mostly left to be forgotten in the ancient ruins of thaigs. The creatures who survived here had to be resourceful or lucky to avoid the taint, and yet many were suffering from the taint regardless. The tunnels ran deep; the deeper one got, the worse the taint affected even the very rock it anchored to.
While Durnehviir would like to get a closer look, his huge form and awkwardness on the ground prevented him from prowling most of the Deep Roads. The most he could do was find places such as this, open to the sky above, that he could swoop into.
The dragon had nothing to fear from the taint. His kind was extremely resilient and he was even more so, due to the fact that he was technically a rotting corpse. There was nothing left for anything to infect. Durnehviir would be the one doing the infecting, not the other way around.

Talho had gone down into the Deep Roads.
She’d heard many things about the Deep Roads, but she had, for the most part, stayed out of them. They had a taint to them, and were dangerously filled with all kinds of creatures. Still, Talho went down there for this one time, just to check the place out. She didn’t like not having a good personal knowledge of the place, regardless of the dangers. She couldn’t depend on hearsay just because she’d heard a few things.
Leaving Adroc back at the Axolotl with a babysitter, she geared up and prepared herself. Then, she wandered off to a crevice she’d heard of that allowed a bit of a visual of what the Deep Roads had. She gazed around, seeing the abandoned buildings and…
… Okay. Was that a dragon that she was seeing perched on a building? There wasn’t a sight that one saw every day.
