Vesper senses that the tree is fighting, but something of considerable
power flowing from the nexus is somehow suppressing the tree's powers.
He cannot guess what it would be, but Splynn's powers are also
legendary, and he is a member of a vast interdimensional network, so
perhaps he has imported something.

Wherever the rift leads, it isn't Atlantis or any place on Earth. The
opening itself reveals only blackness, but there is power flowing from
it to some focal point.

One of the soldiers snaps Vesper out of his reverie. "Aye sir, lookey
there, below the nexus." The soldier hands Vesper his binoculars.
"What do you make of it?" he asks.

The binoculars show what looks like a small golden pyramid, perhaps
twenty feet high. At the very top there is some sort of small black
object floating, and only a faintly visible line of black energy
leading to the rift.

The pyramid itself is heavily guarded, surrounded by at least thirty
well-armed Kydian Powerlords.
