You learn a thick mist covers the floor, and that light can’t get through it. However, you can temporarily blow the mist away with your hands, this reveals that the floor is made of the same “metallic” material as the bridge you crossed moments ago. Slit-like apertures in the ground are the source of the mist; it seems some sort of liquid flows beneath, it gives a faint red glow.

Tracking the sound is easy, it takes you to the center of the room, where you find a sinkhole. Its perimeter is adorned with skulls that have markings resembling an ancient language (the equivalent of Sumerian markings, to give you an idea). The skulls pertain to different (sentient) species: Humanoids, Kaleesh, Devaronian, etc. Roots seem to come out from several skulls; everything is made of the same material. The sinkhole hosts spiral stairs that go deep down. Walking down the stairs, you get a closer look at the walls, they look like those of a catacomb ("adorned" with skulls). The mist gets thinner as you go down, while the red glow increases to the point you can see. The walls and the skulls are partially covered with “roots” (this is reminiscent of certain buildings in the Khmer temple, IRL).

At the bottom of the sinkhole, in the middle of the chamber, you find a girl working in a blacksmith’s forge. Her face is familiar, it’s the girl you met in the club, but her hair is silvery/white. She's in good form. She’s striking a red-hot sword, each blow lighting the room up with sparkles of "iron" that fly away.

By the time you reach the bottom, she's finished sharpening the sword. The stairs end right before her, she's facing you, she speaks:

"SO THAT THEY CAN JUDGE THEIR OWN ACTS OBJECTIVELY.
OF WAKING UP THE SLEEPING CONSCIENCES, IT'S TIME.
"

OOC: Behold! For you are in the presence of Master Closure.
I tear my spirit free, prejudice against the innocent.

Vanta salutes with his closed fist over his heart, or where his heart is supposed to be.

Closure replies to Bibingui’s question about her hair:
“A DISGUISE THAT WAS.”

And returns the greeting to Vanta:
“AND SO, OF ALL PERPLEXITY YOUR MIND, FREE SHALL BE.”

Closure is leisurely working on her sword, she’s checking the blade and its balance, while doing so, she speaks to you:

“THE LAST ONES STANDING YOU WERE.
CHAMPIONS YOU ARE, BUT AS SUCH DO YOU FEEL?”

She pauses and waits for your answer, then she continues:

“FOR EACH OF YOU, A GIFT I HAVE.
A GIFT FROM FUTURE PAST, NOT FROM ME.
A REVELATION, A MEMENTO AND A MESSAGE.
AND FOR THIS A BOX I PRESENT…”

She walks towards the wall behind her, and from one of the skulls she pulls out a box.

“PAY THE PRICE YOU MUST, IF YOU OPEN THE BOX.
LEARN IT YOU WILL ONCE IT’S DONE.
TAKE IT WILL YOU?”

UNCOMFORTABLE CONDITION, DOUBT IS.
DOUBT AND LOSE THE GOOD YOU MIGHT WIN,
OF YOUR OWN LIGHT FINDING.
YET A RIDICULOUS STATE, CERTAINTY IS.

IN HOUSE OF CLOSURE YOU ARE.
LONG BEFORE OUR MEETING, CHAMPIONS YOU WERE CHOSEN.
AHEAD OF THIS HOUSE, SLAVANEPO-GODA AWAITS.

IN THIS MIASMA, FOUR THE THINGS BE WISER TO KNOW:
FRIEND, FOE, TRUTH AND LIE.

THREE THE THINGS BE IN THIS ROOM TO GRASP.
TWO FROM THE BOX TO YOUR HANDS, TAKEN AND GIVEN.
AND THEN, TRUTHS SPOKEN WILL BE.

Closure clears the tooling table she was working at... In a second glance, the table actually looks like a large (squared) pedestal made of stone, of a different material than the structures you’ve previously seen... Then she states the following words, in stark contrast with her previous way of speaking:

“I SUMMON THE FORCE OF THE UNIVERSE,
TO CLEAR THE TELLURIC FIELDS THAT HOLD THE CONSCIENCE,
IN DARKNESS.”

A pillar of light ascends from Closure’s spot, clearing the mist in the middle of the chamber. OOC: This moment being reminiscent of the waking of Minas Morgul. At first, you can’t tell whether this is good or bad, but then Togosho feels his connection to the force is restored, you all notice your electronics start working normally. The mysterious box starts working, reacting as you approach it, three red lights blink while making a beeping sound as you get close.

“LAY YOUR HANDS ON THE BOX”.

You agree to pay the price, and the three of you lay your hands on the box; then it opens, showing another box with three indents.

“YOU OPENED THE BOX, NOW YOU MUST PAY THE PRICE”.

She asks Togosho to hand over a light-saber (either works), she asks Bibingui to hand over her Galaxy and she asks Vanta to take one of his eyes out (and hand it over).

@Vanta, to avoid injury you need a surgery roll with the usual penalties.

The smaller box looks like a miniature NECRON greater summoning core.

@TMW Togosho might tell what the box actually is, with the appropriate roll.

Togosho leaves his lightsaber on the pedestal, then placing her hands at each end of it (without touching it), she lifts the lightsaber using the force and disassembles it. Closure makes a quick check and speaks:

“GOOD”.

She re-assembles the lightsaber, keeping the KYBER out, which she fits into one of the box's indents... as soon as the KYBER is inside, a lid closes and power stars flowing throughout the box. Bibingui also leaves the galaxy on the pedestal, Closure brings it closer to her eyes and takes a good look at it.

“THIS, IT IS”.

She stripes the Galaxy off its ornaments, and fits it in another indent in the box, another lid closes and the sound intensifies. Finally, she takes a look at Vanta. If he can’t take his eye off himself, Closure will pluck it out using the force (it won’t hurt much).

“A LOOK INTO THE PAST, A GAZE INTO THE FUTURE”.

She places Vanta’s eye into the remaining indent, a lid closes and the box finally opens (making this sound). This reveals a delicate piece of stone that looks like a long thorn or a small stake.

“THE INDEX, INTO THE PEDESTAL, FIT IT TOGETHER”.

You find there's indent on the pedestal, right in the middle (top of it).

@BIBINGUI roll klutz to see if you can make it. You could break the index, you know. OOC: If you make it, I'll tell each one about what's inside. Post who's first! Storytime.
