The Juniors burst through the door of the self-storage locker ready to liberate their trapped comrades, Ryo and Matt. CP and Mariana leveled their pistols and fired, taking the ritual leader down; with her dispatched, the remaining ritualists ran for the back door. Marco managed to chase one down and tackle him, and proceeded to interrogate him about the ritual, but his information was limited. Eventually, the team let the ritualist go with the promise that he would never set foot in the US again, a deal he was more than happy to accept for fear of repercussions from the Birkhun, the neo-Nazi Black Guard.

Exploration of the Lake proved challenging, including a brief encounter between an alligator and Ryo that proved fatal… for the gator. Soon after, the group located the lantern, and, more terrifyingly, its protector – a mummified revenant who attacked with vicious claws…
