The children experienced a series of loud noises and flashes of light while at their camp, similar to those near the Fractal rift creature that they had captured. Worried that perhaps it was escaping the went to check it was still contained.
The cobbled together trap seemed to be straining a little, but was holding the creature, for now.
To everyones surprise it started communicating with them, with halting, slightly confusing speech it gave them some clues to find the missing Professsor. It also seemed to thank them for capturing it, although it was difficult to tell why that was.
The children took the references to tombs, statues and books and worked out where the professor may well be found.
A dark cave at the top of a steep set of stairs is the entrance to a dark passageway leading to a tomb.
Sure enough the professor was found among some very strange carvings on the walks. The professor tells how he had not been kidnaped but instead ran away and hid in this tomb, when he was attacked at the camp.
He reveals that this tomb is what he had intended to show the children. The inscritions on walls talk of peices of a horn scattered across the rift, that when assembled, opened a portal for the previous inhabitants of the Rift Valley to escape a great evil. The portal was destroyed after they departed to prevent them being followed.
