> try to cross the river of quicksand
Such perseverance! But seriously, you really wanna try to cross it?
You set one foot gingerly into the edge of the vast river of quicksand. You proceed similarly with the other foot. Slowly, you wade into the shallow area of the river. Bracing yourself, you charge into the middle part of the river. You vainly attempt to swim across, only to be swallowed up by the sand entirely and eaten by a Quicksand Grue.
