Deep within the convoluted pathways of the Underground, the pulsating beats of music and the frenetic rhythm of nightlife mask the burrow’s most intricate secret – a clandestine laboratory. Stories of its origin bounce off the graffiti-laden walls, hinting at an ancient sublevel discovered during persistent tunneling, a remnant of forgotten infrastructure, now repurposed for a peculiar brand of alchemy.
Venture deeper into the tunnels, and the pulsating bass yields to the resonating hum of machinery. Networks of makeshift cabling run through the dimly lit corridors, pirating power from unsuspected sources. They all lead into the burrow’s enigmatic core, a hub of frenzied activity where the Underground’s diverse denizens — punks, goths, glams, and hipsters of all species — transform into clandestine chemists.
Their prized creations are as eclectic as they are potent – an extraordinary assortment of mind and body-altering “carrots”. Some amplify perception, others induce euphoria, while certain variants unlock a mental journey like no other. Intriguingly, some “carrots” even appear to tamper with physical attributes, bestowing temporary boons of enhanced strength or acuity that keeps customers returning for more. The secret to these “carrots” lies in the skillful craft and a unique set of components, enigmatic ‘found elements’ buried deep within the burrows.
