The group awoke in a square, stone room. There were only two of them now, Francis the Crazy and Uma the Juicer. Their other companions had disappeared: Balf the Ley Line Walker, the Cyberknight Galahad, and Icepick the Dragon were nowhere in sight.
As they slowly regained consciousness, the two companions took in more of their surroundings. There was another present: a True Atlantean named Bruttalis Curth’maal. He appeared to have been caught in the same teleportation spell that was cast at the adventurers. Just who cast this spell, and why, remained a mystery. The new trio’s first priority was to discover where they were, and how they could escape.
The walls of the room were made of large, hewn, stone blocks. They were cool to the touch, cool and damp.

The walls, the blocks, the glyphs, even the air in the room itself, felt ancient, felt older than anything else on Earth.
In a corner of the room lay a skeleton, its clothes, and equipment. A closer examination of this skeleton revealed that it was an treasure hunter from the Twentieth Century. The notes and maps she carried indicated that the group was now somewhere inside the Great Pyramid of Mu.

Using a mini-sub, and a deep-sea diving suit, she was able to find and enter the pyramid. This pyramid, however, was to become her own tomb as well.
The rest of her notes included a key to deciphering some of the glyphs on the wall. Bruttalis, Francis, and Uma spoke the word spelled out by the glyphs and the wall noisily slid upwards…
