The scene does in fact “restart” as Tiberious watches it. It replays with the 7 figures relaxing by the stream then being attacked by the spider-wolves as the orbs above their heads shatter.
Tobold moves inside the room crossbow covering Tiberious, “should I shoot it?” he asks quietly. Kvothe has slipped past them both in his Elven cloak, he is looking over the sarcophagus.
Vinny has gotten tired of looking for secret doors and is now in the doorway answering Tobold " Don’t shoot it’s an afterimage of events that played out long ago."
Tiberious cautiously advances to the pile of bones, the ghoul is looking down on them and says “My name is Alister Cohanon, I left my family in search of adventure but found only this….”
Tiberious sees 4 distinct remains
There are 2 blasted scraps of suits of armor, the armor is decorated with swirls etched into its blue steel. Probably once full plate, there is not enough left to make a suit, but the metal still looks salvageable. There are 2 long swords, magnificent looking masterwork weapons, blue steel and etched with swirling patterns like the armor and scraps of red and white fabric. The black blast mark that mars the stone walls looks to have felled them “That’s some sort of flying warrior made of air,” says the Alister, " They fly, they blast you with sound, and are immune to everything."
There are scraps of bone under an obscenely overladen backpack. The backpack is dry rotted and its contents look to be fused into a ball of rotten, one rotted leather boot stands upright. There is a rotted belt-pouch and several other containers about the remains. “That’s me,” says Alister , I leapt into the wind column, to flee from the warriors, it will carry you upward, but one of those things threw me out….I guess I died"
And there is a rotted robe, once deep red in color it is faded by time, several blue tassels and golden threads remain atop a few scattered bones. There is some shattered blue glass near his body. " That is Malstar Cenovox, He was near my farmstead adventuring when he convinced me that I could be a great warrior, He lied. He did things to me, to us….he collected young men and, and…..well it doesn’t matter now."
5 of us entered this tomb. Malstar manipulated us into diffusing the traps for him, we paid with our lives. Although I think Bepo got away, said he was gonna steal one of the lanterns and run, trap us inside……
“Lanterns huh? What color was it?” Tobold still keeps his distance from the ghost, but checks the bone pile under the red robe. “And what happened to these air warriors that caused the scorch mark?” The ghost does not answer Tobold’s query.
Tiberious then removes the vestment to Pholtus he wears over his armor and lays it on the ground. Before he begins, he stares up and prays from the Libram Sanctus Vox.
Lord Pholtus, you are the White Pearl of creation. All grace, mercy, happiness, and richness come from you.
From eternity, thou art eternal.
Thou art the seat of justice, order and law. Your sun lights the day. Your moon keeps the darkness at bay. You protect us in our journey. You are the enlightenment of all knowledge.
No being, no beast, no ruler, no principle can know how thou art. You are beyond beauty. You have no height and no width. You have no number.
Be gracious unto your servant, for you are merciful to your faithful. Without you, we are nothing.
Lead us out of the darkness, O morning star!
Then he looks down and begins to pick up the bones, places them on the vestment, and armor solemnly, and continues to pray.
_Listen to me my kinsman, for at this moment I am your guide.
Since you went forth into the darkness, Pholtus gave you water to drink. You bore a burden that is not your own, and for this your are blessed. Although you are in the midst of his enemies and the beasts of darkness surround you, He will avenge you and they will be burned by His wrath.
Remember in these your last moments that He divided the light and the dark. He made the sun and the moon to light your way. He is life to all, but the darkness turned their backs to the truth.
He is everything. He bears the skies. He is the foundation. He supports the earth. He is the light that shines forth, that gives joy to the soul.
Lo, the darkness you have subdued. Lo, the fire of the fountains of evil you have extinguished.
Close your eyes at last only to open them to His radiance. Your Father is calling you.
Now go aboard the Ship of Light and receive your garland of glory and return to His kingdom and rejoice with all the saints.
Peace, in Order, by Order of Pholtus._
After picking up all the remains, Tiberius folds the vestment and ties it into a sack and places it in his backpack. With that, he begins to look at the center of the spokes,
He sees Kvothe has already moved around him and is near the sarcophagus
Tobold is embarrassed and mutters something religious like “Garl Glittergold, Garl Glittergold…uh please be bold and uh help this uh poor ghost?…uh love Tobold”
