  1. After sinking once, grab the red key and then several areas will have opened up. Two halls in the south central part of the map have opened up, with Egyptian glyphs on them. Enter the one on the left side, facing south, and press on the middle part of the glyph (the one with the ankh at the top), to lower the wall with armor bonuses and a soul sphere. Doing this lowers the wall in the adjacent chamber as well, containing pain elementals, armor bonuses, and shotgun shells. (sector 463)
