Turok is still groggy from whatever had taken hold of him, he moves into the corridor. The Gnome seeing his tormentor moving toward him stops and creates an illusion so the Barbarian wont see him. Conveniently there are two alcoves set in the hallway, looking like closets that the gnome is able to back into and hide.
Turok finds the submerged staircase that the Gnome was investigation earlier. The water is cold but Turok is curious to what lies beneath, and has a ring of cold protection on. Drawing in his breath he goes for a swim.
Meanwhile Storm is experimenting with a spell Meld into Stone, Something in the spell malfunctions and storm is transmuted into the statue, he finds he has rough control of the statue (as if piloting a giant robot) as the statue was articulated as a trap. But he can not see, only hear and only muffled sounds. Having a rough idea of the layout of the area he topples himself from the pedestal and begins smashing about.
Terrified the Gnome holds his illusion not knowing the statue which has now crawled into the corridor is Storm. Turok is beneath the water surface and swimming about.
Turok’s constitution allows him a long time underwater and he moves to the left of the corridor. Storm is bashing the statues form and also slips beneath the water. Something grabs Turok and he bashes at it to get it to let him go. The huge statue complicates things as the water is churned up with the 3 actors struggles.
Turok knows he has to take a breath soon as he sees something shiny and red, he grabs for it and beats a hasty retreat to the entrance. As eh breaks the surface and gulps air, he realizes he’s found the missing red lantern. With the water churning behind him he moves to the elevator to go show the others.
