While Vinny and Tobold have eliminated themselves, Storm has shape-changed into a spider to move to the face at the end of the upper corridor. The face looks to be androgynous and has a hole in the mouth that goes back in a smooth shaft like a pipe. The face is surrounded by 6 colored gems Red Orange Yellow, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. There looks to be a missing Green gem, and storm remembers that they found a similar gem in a old backpack in some debris, Kvothe has it.Storm scurries inside the statues mouth, but finds only a metal closure which may be a flap at the back, he cannot get through. He returns to the outside to see if the gems are a key of some kind.
Tiberious and Turok are opening the sarcophagus, unaware that Tobold and Vinny are trapped in the shafts. Vinny is in great pain in his contorted shape, Tobold is not hurt, but worried that he will not be able to get himself out.
Tiberious has removed the pins in the coffin lid as he and Turok use their strength to move it. BAM! ANOTHER TRAP! Fire explodes from under the lid as they have set off a glyph of some sort. Several are burned by the explosion but not too severely.
As the lid falls to the side a figure rises from the coffin. 7 feet tall it looks to be the humanoid from the lid, androgynous, bald with black eyes and flowing grey robe. It cocks its head back and hisses lunging at Tiberious with clawed hands and a mouth full of sharp grey teeth. The scene painted by every color of the rainbow except red, in sparkly fashion.
Turok is on the creature, activating his sword to flame and smashing the creature. Fire erupts around the creature, it screams an unearthly wail as Turoks crushing blows tear it apart, it catches fire. Helm draws forth his holy symbol and with an invigorated shout channels the strength of his deity HELM which surges through him, blinding streams of light strike the vampire which is writhing in its coffin, the light pierces the vampire which falls to ash, and all is quiet.
Storm having no clue of the battle nearby has returned to elf form and is prying the gems out of the wall with a knife. He eventually leaves and spots a pressure plate in the floor, easier to see coming the other way. There is a trap here, but he does not know what the plate activates.
The creature looks to have been a vampire, it is dead. There is nothing in the coffin.
Storm is trying to activate the trap without hurting himself as he thinks that there is a way through the face.
Tobold and Vinny are entrapped
