While the enclosed space of the ambush limits their mobility, it also limits the size of the force that can attack them. Once victorious they press deeper and are greeted by the holographic projection of the apparent overseer of the complex, an archivist. After a social exchange gives neither side an advantage, the group is attacked again, this time by corrupted couatl. Quick thinking by Lord Ember cuts the attacking force in half though, making it an easy battle, with First consuming one of the insane immortal souls. Further exploration of the local group reveals an angel of secrets held prisoner. The angel explains that Ephiseshen has been trying to find a way to infect the gods with an arcane blight, but so far has not succeeded. The Haunted Blade of Sylvaneft consumes this immortal being as well.
