The fight is harried, created more problematic by the actions of Avery, who puts herself in danger, and it knocked unconscious. But in the end, they manage to defeat the six attackers.
In the morning, when they has rested and recouped, they check out where the attackers came from, and discover a hidden trap door in the room where Ahmed was scared; Ahmed also discovers he is able to go down that hallway to the room, no longer frightened. In the hidden basement, they fight a number of skeletons in what appears to be a barracks. On this side of the wall, they also find a door that leads to the cellar. There was an empty room, which the skeletons likely came form and another door. There they found what seems the leader of the men who attacked. It was filled with a number of treasures. IN the skeleton closet, another secret door is found, and beyond, they find the alchemists lab.
In the alchemist lab, they find the skeleton of the alchemist clutching a yellow stone, several gold objects of exquisite quality, and a book on the Philosopher’s Stone. Even for those with a knowledge of the arcane seem to find deciphering the words in the book hard.
In a last sweep of the basement, Avery finds another secret door in the far southwestern corner of the room.
