The large, gray-furred rat-lord grabs you by the shoulder and leads you down a corridor. You come to a cavern with many tunnels branching off from it. "From here you can visit other realms where you can learn more-more." As you start down one of the corridors, Gnashik motions towards the shadows beside him. A black-clad rat-man slips from the gloom and skitters over to the rat-lord. Gnashik bends and whispers to the Assassin, "If the prisoner does not wish to return, then you will be forced to kill-kill." The Assassin grins and nods to Gnashik, he slips into the darkness and follows you down your chosen corridor.
