The sheriff pulls a little lever on his desk and the floor disappears beneath you. You plummet down and suddenly bounce to a stop on a giant net. The net is sticky and closes around you. Maybe it is a giant spider web. You hear the scuttling of giant hairy claws coming across the ceiling. The web is so tight around you that you can only move one hand and get it loose. You have a magic ring that you were
told not to use unless you were in really bad trouble. 

You...
    trigger the ring 
    wait and fight the spider with your dagger in your one free hand
    cut loose and fall into the inky blackness
    wish that everything was OK

Or you can can try escaping by teleporting into the Maze:
    outside-in,   roundabout,   backward,   or downward.
