The group moves to the far end of the maintenance warehouse, exiting through a pair of doors leading into a staff break room.

As she reaches the manual control panel of the machine, Onru inputs the information provided to her by members of Dr. Lights around the room illuminate, exposing an enormous, vastly complicated machine that encompases the entire back wall of the room.
() You’re about fifteen meters below where we expected the stairwell to end. Site Command: Team Lead, hold position for a moment. Nanku takes one more shot, striking the entity in its eye and causing it to collapse onto the ground. The floor beneath the collapsed humanoid entity crumbles and falls away, revealing a large hole beneath the floor. some kind of machine near the back of the room, under those lights.

T-5 Irantu: We will not have enough time, and the probability of our success drops dramatically if we split up our team. Leeches are beginning to work their way under the door frame and through cracks in the walls.
