PlotEdit

Raziel activates the Rahabim Warp Gate and goes down the hallway with a metal door on its end. He opens it with his projectile ability and found himself on the edge of the Drowned Abbey area. There is a Chapel in the middle, half flooded and a bell tower in the distance. The Elder explains that the Abbey was flooded centuries ago ever since the vampire menace started and that his brother Rahab retreated to these treacherous waters. As Raziel is still weak to water, he carefully glides from pillar to pillar, avoiding the touch of water. He finds an entrance to the Abbey is guarded by now mutated Rahabim, who became predators of the deep. Raziel ventures through the Abbey, using pillars and overhead beams as a means of getting past the deadly water. Once outside again, he glides across gargoyles and finally gets on top of the Chapel. From there, he can reach the bell tower. Raziel pulls the chain and the bell rings eleven times and the gate to the chapel opens up. Raziel descends down on the staircase and enters the chapel in the spectral realm.

The pillars in the room are at different heights and enable Raziel to jump to the highest one. When Raziel shifts back, he senses a presence in the water below, and moments later, Rahab reveals himself from the depths. Surprise at Rahab´s ability to actually adapt, Raziel witnesses that Rahab has transformed into a fish like creature. Rahab tells Raziel that he spoke with Kain and that Raziel will kill him in the end. Raziel asks if Rahab knew that they were Sarafan, but Rahab doesn´t care as he thinks that Kain has in fact saved them from themselves.

As the battle starts, Rahab fires projectiles at Raziel, which he dodges. Surrounded by water, Raziel does not have a lot of space to manoeuver but by jumping from pillar to pillar avoids Rahab´s biting attacks. Raziel notices eight stained glass windows on the wall and breaks them one by one with his projectile ability. This triggers the sun dial mechanism and unleashes deadly beams of sunlight upon Rahab. Unable to resist the harmful rays of sun, Rahab falls dead to the bottom and Raziel consumes his soul. The Elder congratulates him on his newly acquired swimming ability and Raziel can finally reach areas which were previously inaccessible. The Elder points him towards Nosgoth´s northern wastes, where the city of his brother Dumah lies.

TranscriptEdit

The Drowned Abbey (chapter)Edit

The Drowned AbbeyEdit

When Raziel discovers the courtyard of the Drowned Abbey, the Elder God offers the following information:

ELDER GOD
Once a sanctuary against the vampire menace, this abbey has been drowned by the deluge spilling from this wounded land. Your brother Rahab and his brood, devastated even by the feeble rays of Nosgoth's sun, overcame their vulnerability to water and retreated from the surface. Now they haunt these ruins, and glide in the darkness of its stagnant depths.

The Drowned Abbey: Rahab's lairEdit

Raziel finds Rahab at the center of the drowned abbey, nestled in the chapter house in the center of the courtyard.

RAHAB
Raziel.

RAZIEL
Rahab. You have adapted well to your environment, for one so maladjusted...

RAHAB
Do not mock me, Raziel. You, of all of us, should respect the power bestowed by a limitation overcome.

RAHAB
Kain said you would come.

RAZIEL
You speak with the murderer?

RAHAB
You would do well to mind your blasphemous tongue.

RAZIEL
What more did he tell you?

RAHAB
That you would destroy me.

RAZIEL
I will, indeed. But tell me, before I tear your soul from its moorings, do you know what we were before Kain spawned us?

RAHAB
Human.

RAZIEL
Sarafan, Rahab. The antithesis of all we ever believed.

RAHAB
Does it matter? We were lost. He saved us.

RAZIEL
Saved us? From what?

RAHAB
From ourselves.

If Raziel is defeated in the battle, then upon his return:

RAHAB
Raziel returns – do you still think you can best me?

When Rahab is destroyed:

RAHAB
I am undone!

ELDER GOD
Infused with Rahab's soul, you have overcome your former vulnerability to water’s touch. Immersion in water will no longer dissolve your physical body, enabling you to swim to areas heretofore beyond your reach.

The Drowned AbbeyEdit

As Raziel exits Rahab's chapter house, the Elder God offers the following information:

ELDER GOD
Centuries past, your brother Dumah retreated with his clan into Nosgoth's northern wilderness. Empowered by the gift of Rahab's soul, seek out his mountain stronghold. But tread carefully – these frozen wastes have mysteries yet to disclose.
