Hey /x/, /out/sider here; first time on this board, I've finally experienced something I genuinely can't fucking explain, I'm freaking the hell out, and I need some advice here.
So, I'm studying abroad in Segovia, Spain. It's this really awesome city in Castilla y Leon, surrounded by a wall, and it has a huge castle and cathedral.
So, the other kid studying here and I just discovered a really deep cave earlier, behind some brush on the hillside on which the Alcazar is built. Naturally, we went in with just the lights on our fuckin' phones. So, we're walking/crouching/crawling for a solid TEN minutes through this thing; not a ton of spiders, a few fruit bats though. We came to this fork in the cavern, one of which let out on the other side of the hill, looking out over the Iglesia de la Vera Cruz. The other side, and I shit you not, has some kind of fucking mutant in it.
We barely had any light, but this was NOT a person. I'm not trying to sound like a fuckin' nut job, but it reminded me of what people think aliens look like. It had a bulbous head, and sandy-colored skin, pretty long and gangly limbs. It was scrabbling around and opening and closing its eyes and mouth, but didn't make a single damn sound. We freaked out, ran down the other pathway, found out it led to a steep drop looking over the church, and ran back the way we came without bumping into that fucking thing again.
So now we're back at his host family's house, it's the crack of dawn, and we're fucking panicking; should we call the police or paramedics or something? Is there any fucking possible explanation as to what it was?
Here's a picture of the cave entrance, it's the only place bright enough to have taken any shots.
Also, there are tons of caves in the stone here in Segovia; the type of rock forms caverns really easily. We're really freaked out; it wasn't a person, I'm not exaggerating, it's a tall, gangly fuckin' THING with a toothless mouth that kinda looks like a muppet mouth.
The reason I can't post more pics with better juice is that we just weren't prepared; this is what the pics look like; this is one of the few where you can get a vague idea of what the caves looked like
I am NOT fuckin' going back in there, you out of your mind?
and here's a shot of us looking up at the Alcazar from next to the cave entrance
Go back but be prepared this time, bring torches, cameras, rope and whatever else you need. If you find it again take pics.
If it's living in there then chances are it's got some kind of den/nest. If you can find something of interest post it here.
This one kind of gives you an idea too. What I'm trying to ask is, do you guys know of any other kinds of reports of shit like that in Spanish/granite sandstone caves?
It was dark and I only had my iphone, gimme a break
I think we're gonna tell our program director, I'm afraid that we just fucked up and it's some kind of deformed person who's been stuck in the cave. I'm seriously freaking out
You're joking right, take some time to relax. Find out what it is before you start babbling about monsters living in a cave. Now that you know there's something in there you can be ready for it. Bring whatever equipment you need and lay a trap for it
It's really pissing me off that i can't show you guys pics of it or anything, but I'm not going back. I'm sorry, I don't know what the hell I thought I was gonna do by making this thread; I'm not thinking straight
you know damn well this is rare.
people need to see this!
we all need to know. grow some cojones and get your ass in there again.
YOU WILL REGRET NOT HAVING BEEN BACK. the thoughts "what if" and "what could of been..." will linger in your mind till the day you die.
GET BACK IN THERE!
we need proof!
come on man. do something great!
do you know how many people wish they were in your shoes?
id fucking go back there if I was. hell fund me a ticket /x/ and ill go investigate that right now
I'm not an /x/phile, I have no urge at ALL to go back in there; best I can do for you is tell you to keep up with Segovian news; we're telling the police, and whatever happens after that is up to them. Just wanted to see if anyone had any idea first
Okay... so lets toss out a few simple ideas. See if these can be eliminated:
>mutant dog/rat etc.
Is it possible that the thing you saw got lost down there and adapted? Like a Smeagol effect due to lack of sunlight or disease?
Same effect from the lack of sun? Any local stories or legends?
Any rad testing or power stations within practical distance?
We just finished with the cops, we told them we found someone trapped in the cave for lack of the right words in Spanish; they're headed down there right now. Will keep you posted on what they say.
Sort of, the aqueduct is the centerpiece for the whole city. It was built by the Romans, and it's been standing for millenia without any sort of mortar or cement.
So now, it apparently wasn't a CRIME that we were hiking there. It's just prohibited to go in the caves in general for safety's sake. Still, they're making us go in to answer some questions after they're done with looking at the caves.
Legend has it that Lucifer himself built the bridge in one single night, in order to win a young woman’s soul. He failed, however, lacking the final stone when dawn came. Tradition also has it that the holes visible on the stones are the marks of the devil’s fingers.
Normal people, people who don't frequent /x/, don't assume that what they just found is some game-changing wonder of the world. Besides, the last thing we want is to be known as the crackpot American kids who supposedly found yet another paranormal thing
The troll picked my interest until it called the "all i have was my phone" card. Even my phone has flash in it and im from a 3rd world country... 8/10 for making me read it all.
You're a basement-dweller, so I'll give you the BotD for not knowing this, but when you use flash in a cave, the light flashes off of bits of mica and quartz in the rock, and you get nothing but a big white splotch in your pic.
I don't even frequent /x/ at all. I got here from some /x/ related thread on another board where everyone told OP to >>/x/
If I was to see some fucking mutant goddamn sandman with mutliple mouths out of Lovecraft I would want see a picture of myself posing with a rifle in one hand, my boot on its neck on the front page of every newspaper.
I fucking risk falling to my death every day at work for a few dollars. To be the famous discoverer of some fucked up cave mutant? Yeah, that's worth going back to the cave for. I'd fucking kill myself letting that go by.
bro, phone flashes are just normal led ligths, not the camera kind of flash, its weaker so it wont reflect the ligth in the rocks as you think, it may get the photo brigther than it should but it wont be just a white splotch...
alot of ufologists belive aliens are here right now and that most of them live underground in cave systems this guy philip shnider says he ran into them and they really fucked him up listen to his story>>>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xedmfAgx8eg not saying this is what i belive but it is a theory.......sorry about bad spelling suck at it lol
first of all no. Also yeah i would be terrified and i probably would never want to go back but then i would never be able to stop thinking about it. Then id regret never goong back. I would have to see what was in their. But i couldn't go alone i would need people. Cause fuck that
A) they crossed paths with it twice, and it did nothing
B) it was a fruit bat on the ground.
These, don't be a fucking pussy OP. If it opens it's maw and some form of evil tendril comes out and destroys you, you'll just find yourself in another journey. Don't let fear guide you bro, but don't let this thing get the upper hand either, have your knife ready and available at any time you need.
Hurry the hell up OP. I'm not waiting all night. Also, why does everyone have to comment on how it's fake? Of course it is, we all know this. It's still fun. Why not just try to enjoy the ride?
Any normal person would go back there to kill a mutant dog thing demon, you literally have no balls to not want to go back there. How the fuck would you want us to believe you if you have no proof of it? I tell you hwat, I think you're making fun is us /x/phillies. We'll guess what? Fuck you, my jimmies may be rustled but you will never fool us into your make believe fabrication of something that may well be in your imagination. You could have took picture of this cave and though, "hey, let's fuck with those schizos that roam /x/, that would be so funny!"
Fuck you OP someone banish his sorry ass from this board. He is not welcome here, making fun of us. You think we're that gullible? Lol
This might just actually be the most interesting thing to happen to /x/ in a while. Get some buddies, lights night vision cameras, torches, ropes (to find your way back out with) AND GO BACK IN!!!
All you need is to take a decent picture or two or maybe record a bit.
Hell, just use snapchat or some thing and have a friend go in there and live stream video chat it with you if you're too scared to go back in yourself.
Don't come to /x/ expecting to get help if we don't know what it is you're actually dealing with.
OP, you will kick yourself forever.
Call the police even, with a group of you all saying you saw something crazy they will at least investigate with you.
Get torches and A GOOD CAMERA WITH FLASH.
Hurry before this thing leaves. What if its an important discovery for science?
>a few fruit bats
Umm, I think all fruit bats live in jungles, not Spain.
I'm guessing OP isn't real up on bats as opposed to trying to mislead as to bat particulars.
You don't find that odd? Random thread about a traveller through Europe, goes in a gave has an incredible experience. Then 20-30 mins later. A student in Europe goes into a gave and has an incredible experience. I call b.s.
You can easily change the experience, but to have the same scenery ten twenty minutes after? I just htink it is odd. I rarely see cave threads, and to see one after the other i find it odd.
this is fake guys i wanted it to be true but that is not the case i have been watching this since it was posted kid said he went to the police station and never posted again it is a troll thread sadly
Fucking shit, OP. I wish you never posted this fucking thread, even more, gone TO THE FUCKING POLICE about this.
Chances are you're probably dead now for admitting to what you have witnessed or currently going through hell, figuratively.
Fuck. You're in Europe, western, not as bad, but still.
Maybe i'm being paranoid or we but OP.. I think you dun goofd....
Yeah I wouldn't have gone to the government about spooky shit. Should have probably tried to look up a local group about spooky stuff and have them go check it out.
For all we know it could be a catholic priest in their native habitat ;).
