Mining Encounters

Mining encounters are special encounters that only show up when you have a scuffed mining helmet equipped and are underground. They will show up more often with increased chance of Mining Encounters. If you have put on the helmet for the first time since you last reset, you will begin outside the mine.

You're also relatively sure roots don't writhe like that.
