Having sent Iskander back to Jomoral with Myra, Aratal tells the group that he should be able to open the glowing door they had encountered earlier. As they are about to make their way back to it, the roar of the Minotaur Skeleton is once more heard. With the Skeletons coming into view, Rasend pushes the others out of the room and draws his sword, sacrificing himself to buy his comrades time to escape.
At the door, Aratal is unable to identify the magic surrounding it, but Immeral recognises it as the writing of his people, The Shadow Monks. He is able to open it with a drop of blood, and the Heroes squeeze through it before the Skeletons catch up to them.
Inside the room is a magical projection which addresses Immeral as ‘Guardian’. She explains that Mason Silentdawn has broken the seals holding a powerful artefact called the Shard of Omalgus in the chamber beyond, and that it is now unstable and likely to cause mass destruction. Unable to physically assist the Heroes in stopping it, she instead uses the last of her magic to imbue their weapons with power.
The Heroes make their way into the last chamber, which is ornately decorated with jewels and a statue of a dragon. At the back of the room floats a red crystal, glowing with energy. Mason Silentdawn is standing by it, and voices his surprise that the group was able to find him. The episode ends just before combat begins.
