 The story quickly turns into a puzzle as to what is guarding the treasure in the House of Angarngi. The note by Urgaan of Angarngi states that there is a guardian of the treasure, but that there are no deadly creatures in or out of the house, nor are there any traps of any sort. There are no devils or demons guarding, and that the house is completely bare. The story quickly turns into a puzzle as to what is guarding the treasure in the House of Angarngi.
