Well, it was a challenge crunching all of it. Here it is with a couple of words over 100:
The arcane inscription – it took months to crack. Well, almost.
No man or animal had ever stepped into the cave in the living memories.
The lure of the riches, the daring…made a heady cocktail.
At the far end, a small hall – at its entry, backing on him, it stood blocking his way. He would’ve sworn the man was real. A minor god standing as a guard?
Pushing the wooden figurine aside, he entered.
There it was – mounds of gold nuggets, rock-sized diamonds…
In a daze he stepped up to feel it in his hands.
He couldn’t – his legs were turning into wood.
