Glowy blue stuff trying to look like a person
Statues all switch to white

“Good! It has been so long since I’ve seen anyone from the circle.”
To Kyra “Who’s this?”

“Is he back?”
“If he’s gone then why are all of you here?”
“Where is the first circle?”
“Why are all the swords tied to Tyranna?”

Balthier “What circle do you mean?”
Glowy blue confused by confusion

Tyranna
Council is 1st circle
All of the sword bearers are the 2nd circle

Gemma “I’m on a mission from Wes Jas trying to right a terrible wrong.”
(It’s a zone of truth)

Glowy blue
“If you’re not working with the circle, I can assume you don’t have the
passwords to continue. Let’s hope that you have satisfactory answers for
the keepers.”

Each of the people with swords melt into the floor.

Kyra stays
“You are of no consequence. Tell me of what the others are really after.”
Kyra says very little.

Caretaker drops 2 blue orb of energy that moves slowly towards
Balthier and Tathel

Jeska does something and then a dark purple cloud appears
over 14 of 15 deathclaws. (It’s a subtle.)

“Only members of the 2nd circle may enter the inner sanctum”

Kyra “…so what does that altar do?”

Caretaker: “The circle that brought it here knew it held terrible power,
but they were unable to know what it did or how to destroy it.
None of either circle has ever come back since it was brough here. (Year 7)”

Kyra -Asks about deathclaws for the possibility of a tour in the colesium

Caretaker: “They are bound beings that only exist on this plane”

Kyra “Asks for the passwords”

Caretaker: “If the inner circle doesn’t deem to give passwords and they are lost
many things here will be lost.”
Almost every section of wall lights up with the hint of artifacts.

Everyone puts their blades in and all the blades lock into place.
The back wall opens up and we see the altar
3×3×6 feet made of solid obsidian
