It's clear that this pit was designed for lesser opponents, as a means of entertainment for those above. Rand can easily spot through his thermal lenses, the signatures of what are no doubt cameras focused on the pit. There is a loud metallic click as gears start to move the massive door. Rand's assessment of lesser opponents is largely due to how easily the grate blocking the chute succumbs to his blades.
Then again, so many factors have to align for that particular egress to work - the walls of the chute are friction-less, or at least slick that normal climbing skill would be useless.
It's all information that is interesting but not particularly useful at the moment. Their is a deafening roar - not unlike the T-Rex on Venus - as the door continues opening. The grate gives way, but it takes precious time and the roar is getting louder. The creature is all but able to pass through the door as Rand is able to ascend the chute.
Lionmane continues to ponder the request, gazing at the weapons laid out on the table and his new associate. Realization seems to set in.
"Do you mean a Ribbon Device? I can acquire that for you, yes."
Kano looks around as you exchange, and then bursts out laughing. He makes a comment on going soft towards "Kobra" and belches before taking a bite of something else. Tsung however, looks at you skeptically.
She turns, interested by the goings on in the pit. "That one is a worthy Kombatant. Should he survive the pit, I shall have use of him."
She seems to speak to Kano in regards to that, but he does not reply. "It is no secret that I do not enjoy sullying my hands with the likes of you Dragons, but you get results."
She gestures in the air, there is a sparkling of energy around her hand and the weapon, case and all, float towards her.
"The source of this device's energy. We want it."
The case, and then the weapon itself seem to fall apart and to the ground, until she is left holding aloft a small purple crystal.
