team finds only one artifact: a small vessel that immediately

in the floor, Nico becomes transfixed by the object, and before he
can be stopped, he has the urn in his hands. Then, it is broken open
on the ground. And with that, the impossibly withheld groundwater
begins to fill the chamberâ€¦
the clamor to escape the rapidly flooding room and save the found
texts, the team is sent in all directions. And Nicoâ€™s mind, always
attuned to Geenaâ€™s, seems to go quiet. His actions in the days
after the incident feel unlike him, and his consciousness seems to
dissolve beneath the weight of his experience with the artifact. What
