One of the strange submarine crew members points to them.  "They're members
of our crew.  The woman is named Raven and she was picked up a day or two
ago.  The others are Sir Lyle Tamblin and Sir Owen Zandeeli, both
trusted crewmen."

OOC: I'd like to introduce our two new players, White Mist and Rich.
Of course, your
characters don't know who they are yet, but to keep things clear, the
female you all
saw is played by White Mist while the Cyberknight (whose name is Sir
Lyle Tamblin)
is played by Rich.  The third character, the African in the somewhat
medieval looking
armor, is an NPC named Sir Owen Zandeeli.  Anyways, onwards we goooooo!!!!

> "What flying beast?" Raven asked loudly while she took a step to stand behind Lyle and
> Zandeeli. "The one that flew into the light?" She pointed to the celing. "A rift opened up

> Raven scrunched up her face in a grimace. She shouldn't have said that.

Zandeeli, seeing among the gathering on the stairs, two members of the
sub's crew, says
to Raven and Lyle, "Clearly our shipmates have made new acquaintances
in our absense."
The African knight gives Raven a quick glance.

"I'm afraid we have no idea what you're talking about." Zandeeli says.
 "There's no demon
down here that we can tell."

It's at that moment that the ground begins to shake again, and the
sick-sweet feeling of
a nexus bursting to life overcomes the magic users and psychics.
Above the temple,
amongst the ruins, the blue dwarfs are joined by more of their number,
and they begin
marching on the temple.
