Arden and Lena chuckle while Rod simply shrugs and follows behind,
muttering something about how the others outside shouldn't be

The stairs lead down and down, and it becomes clear after a minute
or two that they must be going underground.  The air becomes warm,
and then much warmer and finally quite hot, so that those not in
environmental armor find it very uncomfortable.

The stairs finally end at a long, winding tunnel which seems to go
even farther down.  As they round a corner, they can see reflected
in the stone of the walls a purplish light which seems to be changing
constantly in intensity.  Whatever is giving off that light also seems
to be emitting a low hum, though until someone goes further around
the corner, they won't know what it is.
