Opponent Encounter Text Notes
Eclipse.jpg Twisted Hound As you walk the halls, you hear a click, click, click of footsteps behind you. You turn around to see a hideous mockery of a hound, with bone quills piercing through every inch of its flesh.
coffee.jpg Third Eye Ganger "Intruder!"

You turn around to see the shout's source and find a lone guard. Luckily it doesn't seem like anyone else has noticed.
Third Eye Sorcerer As you move through the hallway, the world seems to twist and turn. For a moment, you wonder why you're on the ceiling.

Then you wonder why there's someone else on the ceiling with you.
