Alex and Bongo both confirm reception.

Within moments of Lady Frost's departure, the ground shudders with
another explosion.  A large stone dislodges from the ceiling and everyone
runs for cover, but it is too late for Osiris, whose legs are pinned underneath
the enormous rock.

Osiris cries out in pain.  Even his armor was insufficient to block all the
force of the rock's fall.

"I think my legs are crushed," he gasps.

Yet another explosion comes, and now several large stones lie between the
portal and the rest of the room.
