Hello all,
I came across this on the internet and thought that this was the best place for it. I totally understand why things like this don't turn up in pencil and paper games, but WHY haven't CRPG's given us an experience surpassing that which mother nature can provide? >2Km deep. The deepest cave on earth. the map is humbling.

There are older and fouler things in the deep places of the world.

Turns out that there is a 3d model of the cave, but I get my Chrome browser to display it. Man! Question - why don't game designers use data like this?

Likely because we're clueless until someone brings it up. Then we freak, and can't figure out a good way to use it.
