>> "Yes, yes, of course." he says, clearly frightened out of his mind.
>> "Lads, open the trap door, and be quick."
>> As his sons work, Keldon tries to explain, "This building was built on
>> top of the ruins of some old store, and there were storage rooms
>> underneath. There was a tunnel linking it to where the brothel is, but
>> I cannot say if it's still intact."
>> Moments later the two sons announce "It's open father!", pointing to
>> where a bookshelf had been just a moment before. There, in the floor,
>> is a trapdoor.
>> At that moment, there is a loud bang, followed by another one. The
>> front door shivers, but does not yield. "Quick now! That door will
>> withstand some Kydian boots, but not Kydian energy weapons."
>> As everyone moves forward, there's the sound of a energy weapon (or
>> rather several energy weapons) opening fire. The door shivers, starts
>> to glow, and then explodes, molten bits of metal and other substances
>> scattering over the front of the store. Some land on scrolls and begin
>> to smolder. Through the smoke and wreckage of the door, plasma and
>> laser beams shoot into the store.
>> The Archbishop runs towards the trapdoor, pushing one of Keldon's
>> sons, who is shoved into an energy beam that cuts deep into his body.
>> "Nooooo!" Keldon cries.
