On the other hand no plants means the atmosphere gets worse never better and so is probably fouled or worse. Their are a couple of ways to mine on void worlds. I allow active helms to maintain their ships air until deactivated. This limits the time a normal helm can retain air but a Citadel can change a few dwarfs at a time and keep 100 (the minimum to power the forge) dwarfs working around the clock. If the mineshaft is air tight and the opening is in the Citadels envelope, clerics can cast air producing spells to fill the mine with air. Also a Crown of the Void provides an air bubble, as do some mage and cleric spells at medium levels. ***Possibly Required Disclaimer*** The above uses of ant TSR trademarks were made without any intent to infringe on TSR's rights/copyrights. ********************************** Thank You For Your Time, Thomas O Magann Jr tomjr@???.com Or...(TMagann@???.com)
