"The Infernal Machine?" Nimble scrunched his face. "What's that?"
Feris looked around. "I think we're in it. I think this whole complex is some sort of..."
"Infernal Machine?" Rathgar offered.
"Yes, but what does it do?" Nimble asked.
Feris frowned. "If I'm reading this diagram correctly, this section is designed to draw energy from... somewhere. It doesn't say where exactly."
"Where generally?" Allianora asked.
"It doesn't say. Just that it draws the energy, traps it in those crystals, and then focuses the energy onto that crystal in the ceiling."
Rathgar looked at the ceiling. "And then what?"
"I doubt anything good." Nimble said, eyeing the big gem. "Think removing that will cause the machine to fail?"
Feris grinned. "Probably."
