"You're being stingy."

"I warned you," said Lady Anthe. "These caverns are not as friendly as the rest of the Underdark. You won't find luminous mushrooms or special glowing crystals here, and most of the fungus among us is either deadly poison or just plain carnivorous. I used to survive in places like this."
"You mean you used to live--"
Anthe cut Marvin's well-meaning correction off. "I wouldn't call it living. After three more days, neither will you. Five if we don't have to eat Otyugh or worse before we're out the other side." During her speech, she worked quickly, moving from one stand of fungus to another. Picking samples to add to her Bag of Preserving. "So forgive me for withholding your double-blessed candy."
