Vent smirked. "I wasn't giving you any. First you should know, the city belongs to Destry once more. Now follow me." Vent led Caedus into the main chamber of the cave before stopping next to a wall. "This trial is something the Great One had me take to prove my loyalty and devotion to our cause. You must now do the same." Vent unshethed one of his swords and stabbed the wall behind him. A secret door opened up next to Caedus revealing a long black tunnel. "It is called the Path of Phantasms. The trial itself is simple but succeeding is hard. Once you enter that tunnel, the door will close behind you. You won't be able to see or hear anything. To pass, simply exit the other side." Vent walked up to Caedus. "While it seems simple, it's not. There is some ancient magic in that tunnel. It will disorient you so straight may in reality be circles. Inside your thoughts will constantly wander towards any regrets or doubts. In truth, this is not a trial of body but one of the mind. Many have taken it and gone insane, wandering until death. There is nobody in the tunnel, and no monsters but the ones in your mind. My only advice is to stay focused. Pick a reason to justify why you take the trial and focus exclusively on that reason. It helps to keep you on the path." Vent gave Caedus a push into the tunnel. "I completed the trial in two hours. I will wait at the other end for one. Hurry up, young Caedus." The door slammed shut locking Caedus inside.
