    what was that?

  2. Richard says:

    Missing eyes maybe?

  3. Lanthir says:

    Yeah, if I recall correctly her eyes have been sewn shut.

  4. nony mouse says:

    not that that should matter, right? No light in the tunnels anyway right?

  5. Path says:

    Blind people can conduct themselves reasonably fine within known spaces, so, unless she has some kind of blindsight, taking one into a cave is infinitely more dangerous than carring an unstable kid.

  6. Jeanette says:

    Ganesh needs someone with eyes, I assume, to be able to see what is in the tunnel.

  7. Xyon says:

    Yes, seeing it through someone’s eyes is difficult if they don’t have any.

    re-posting old comments…

    “I can think of a very good reason why someone would keep their face covered that would render them unsuitable for a quick spelunk even if guided by some one as capable underground as Digger; leprosy.

    Ok, so the bottom half of the acolyte’s face looks normal enough, but leprosy tends to do most facial damage to the nose, destroying the cartilage and caving it in (giving lepers their distinctive husky voice). You find leper bones very easy to identify archaeologically due to the swelling, los of density and arthritis where the cartilage has vanished. Temples the world over have cared for lepers when others shun them and Ganesh the all compassionate would most certainly help them.

    Presuming digger recognises the symptoms, she would A, probably be a little shocked (as we can see) and B, probably realise taking some down an unstable mine when you may have to say “Ummm, you have a two foot wooden spike sticking through your arm you know.” because they wouldn’t feel, it is less than ideal.
