A sense of calm curiosity settled on him and he took a half step toward the chamber's glass wall, but knew he wouldn't be able to get much closer to the creature. Norman noticed his friend's unnerving stare and called to him to snap out of it, at which point the monstrous creature swam away - quickly disappearing into the dark water.
- Kathleen and Reis regarded the appoaching pair somewhat suspiciously but answered their greeting and with as much neutrality as possible. The man took the large book from his companion and presented it to them. The book turned out to be the descriptive book for the Age of Er'cana - the age they were currently standing in. They said they'd be willing to trade it for the Malves age which Kenta had stolen from them a few days earlier. After some discussion, they decided to take the offer and made the trade - not least because Kat realized that, with the descriptive book here, all incoming links were disabled, and that, if these other people controlled the descriptive book, they could cut the guilds and themselves off from access to the age - or worse, they could damage or destroy the book, rendering it inaccessible permanently. While the other age was also of interest, they'd been sent to study *this* one, and so it seemed the higher priority.

The other stair led them to a sealed bulkhead and airlock with some buttons that didn't seem to be operating correctly. After some evaluation, they decided that maybe the airlock was having some sort of power issue - they had noted in the control room that the gauges they guessed to be related to power supply read only 5-10%. They decided to return to the control room and experiment with the panel to try to increase power to the station. As Norman slowly pushed a large lever upward, the hum and vibration that had been present in the facility intensified...
