The crew uses plenty of caution during the investigation as the mine itself can be dangerous—and who knows what entities might be lurking around the corner.

Big Jim

Big Jim, a tour guide, tells Zak there are definitely Tommyknocker trolls in the mine. Also, he says he’s smelled bacon cooking in the mountains. (So, Tommyknocker trolls like bacon? A delicious possibility—although we can’t confirm.)
