Plot[edit | edit source]

Raziel enters the caves by opening the previously closed doors of the Oracle´s cave by using the constrict ability. He finds a locked metal door with a symbol on it and shifts to the spectral realm to get to the next area with block puzzles and another gate. By inserting the correct blocks into the holes with matching symbols, the thich metal gate opens and he gets further into the caves. When he reaches the top, he finds a room with four dials he has to constrict. Upon doing so, the metal gate he has seen before opens and lets him access Moebius´ room with a cauldron set on fire in the middle. When Raziel enters, he reminisces about Kain´s stories, how Moebius tricked him and that underneath his façade he was Time Streamer, a member of Circle of Nine. Sensing that Kain was in this room recently, Raziel is determined to track Kain even if it would take him to hell.

Constricting the cauldron rotates the chamber and reveals a hidden tunnel, leading into area with a large clock mechanism and a statue of Moebius. Even centuries after his death, Raziel acknowledges that there is certain power emanating from Moebius´ appearance. Setting the clock to the correct amount grants Raziel further passage into the caves. He stumbles upon several rooms with clock and symbol puzzles which require the constrict ability.

When he finds a large underground area with three switches, it opens a large door leading to a long-winding hallway leading down into the Chronoplast.

The Oracle's Cave[edit | edit source]

Raziel discovers the long-hidden entrance to the Oracle's chamber:

The Oracle's Cave, where Kain's first fateful meeting with Moebius occurred.
Moebius played the role of a doddering soothsayer, stirring his pot of visions while dispensing enigmatic predictions to gullible visitors. Underneath the facade was Moebius the Time Streamer, sorcerer of the Circle of Nine – a ruthless manipulator with the power to bend time. Since his murder at Kain's hands centuries ago, these caves have stood vacant... though, like Moebius himself, they are rumored to be only a facade for a much larger, more elaborate complex...

I sensed that Kain was here... and at that moment, I would have plumbed the depths of hell to find him.

Once inside, Raziel comes upon a statue of Moebius, the Time Streamer – as he regards it, he reflects:

This, I deduced, must be the man himself – the Time Streamer, Moebius. He seemed not at all the impressive figure I had imagined from Kain's boasted exploits. And yet, even this cold image radiated a certain undeniable power...
