  You are in the center of a maze of twisty symlinks, all alike.  Exits
  exist in every direction and you cannot see where any of them actually
  go.  Embedded in a wall to your left is an unlit torch.  You can hear
  the drip of water, but the echoes in the cavern prevent you from
  isolating the source.
