Talas nods in agreement.

With some care the two make their way back to the scaffolding.  As they
get closer to the scaffolding they can see somewhat beyond the shattered
doors beneath the scaffolding.  The other end isn't visible due to the amount
of sediment and flotsam in the rushing water, but they can see that there
must be some well-lit room some distance down that corridor.

Getting up the scaffolding takes a bit more work but finally they reach the
hatch that they had first used to get in this flooded chamber.  The ladder
led back up and finally they were at the top, back in the utility passage
beneath the main floor.  Water is spurting out of the hatch due to the
pressure of the rushing water below, but there is at least breathable
air up here.

There are klaxons going off all over the place.  Above can be heard rushing
squishy fishmen footsteps.  Above their heads they see the door where the
Sunaj Assassin had previously come from open to reveal two ape-like
humanoid D-Bees, both dressed in full body armor, but one holding an
energy rifle, and another strapped to his back, and the other holding what
looks like a heavily armored suitcase.

OOC1: A picture of what the D-Bees look like is attached.

OOC2: For clarification, Talas and Carlos are standing in the utility passage
that stretches from the hatch where the rest of the company went down
and the hatch where the two now stand.  Above them is the end of the
main passage, and there is a door there where the Sunaj had came from.
