A Pair of Craters
In a clearing at the end of the scorched path, you find a pair of craters. The first is smoking, and looks like it was the result of some sort of explosion.
The other is... well... moist. It looks like it was the result of a particularly productive and violent sneeze.
To which crater will you cater?
|Investigate the smoking crater|
At the bottom of the smoking crater, you find what appears to be the charred corpse of a Pastamancer. Looks like his last spell didn't go off quite as planned. Unless, y'know, the plan was to completely char-broil himself and the immediate vicinity, in which case it went off exactly as planned.
You root around in the ashes until you find the remains of his equipment.

|Investigate the moist crater|
At the bottom of the slimy crater, you find a glob of goo with what looks like the corpse of a Sauceror inside it. Looks like he summoned more jelly than he was ready for.
You fish out (and wipe off) his possessions.

- "Looks like he summoned more jelly than he was ready for" refers to the song "Bootylicious", specifically the phrase "I don't think you're ready for this jelly."
- The adventure title and item drop selection of the first choice appear to be a reference to the song Cats in the Cradle by Harry Chapin which contains the lyrics "cats in the cradle and a silver spoon" being change to Corpse in the Crater and a Pasta Spoon.
