Mining lore

They still use a very old technique to track the miners. You hang your "brass" on a special rack at the entrance. Then, if you don't move it to the other rack as you leave, they know you are still inside and go in search of you.

That looks like a clever system, but they would be looking for me every night if I had to actually remember to hang up my little brass marker when I left. That would be even worse than filling in one's time sheet.
