    4. Entering the crypt - coming from Midras - through the ruins, Samael wasn't seen.
    As I started talking to Eris, Samael translated.
    His name was written ?SAMAEL?

    If I remember right, last time I entered the Crypt, Samael waited there for me.

    I know I have the "Summon Samael" item to call him, but a new player wouldn't recognize it ...

    While I didn't have a problem with Samael being invisible, I also saw the ?SAMAEL? in conversation with Eris:

    [5/1/2018 12:59:05 PM] [12:59 PM] Entering Crypt of the Avatar from Midras Ruins
    [5/1/2018 12:59:23 PM] [12:59 PM] Location of Exit to Midras Ruins marked on compass and map.
    [5/1/2018 12:59:34 PM] [12:59 PM] I wrote of what I observed in my journal.
    [5/1/2018 12:59:43 PM] [12:59 PM] Location of Crypt of the Avatar marked on compass and map.
    [5/1/2018 12:59:43 PM] [12:59 PM] Samael: You have arrived safely, I see. Tell me when you are ready and I will follow you down further into these ruins. There is much you will find of interest.
    [5/1/2018 12:59:43 PM]
    [5/1/2018 12:59:48 PM] [12:59 PM] Luna Moon: ready
    [5/1/2018 12:59:48 PM] [12:59 PM] Samael: Stay close.
    [5/1/2018 12:59:48 PM]
    [5/1/2018 12:59:48 PM] [12:59 PM] You received an item (Summon Samael) from Samael
    [5/1/2018 12:59:56 PM] [12:59 PM] Samael: This is a very ancient place. We are the first living beings here in some time.
    [5/1/2018 1:00:07 PM] [1:00 PM] Eris: You! Have you brought any more fighters, or am I to assume you are our only relief? Does Anapa of Drachvald come to our aid?
    [5/1/2018 1:00:07 PM] [1:00 PM] ?SAMAEL?: It appears my talent for spirit communication is not necessary. Eris has not been a spirit long, in their reckoning. Her speech still is intelligible. Still, I will add whatever I can. She knows more of the past than the present.
    [5/1/2018 1:00:12 PM] [1:00 PM] Eris: I know you, Samael the healer. It has been... has it been? Where are the years, where is my beautiful city, why have the flames died out...
    [5/1/2018 1:00:12 PM] [1:00 PM] ?SAMAEL?: (talking to herself) Your fight is over for now, lady warmaiden. But you summoned me here... tell me of the ring, the child!
    [5/1/2018 1:00:22 PM] [1:00 PM] Eris: (to you) I remember the child... it was... a young boy, and yet a spirit passed on. Sad of countenance, weary, so weary. It had passed on, through the Styx, then returned...
    [5/1/2018 1:00:22 PM] [1:00 PM] ?SAMAEL?: (talking to herself) Returned? He came this way again? Tell me, you MUST tell me! Which way did he pass? I must find him!

    EDIT: also notice that Samael is "talking to herself"

    [5/1/2018 1:55:01 PM] [1:55 PM] Luna Moon: help
    [5/1/2018 1:55:01 PM] [1:55 PM] Eris: Our city remains pressed hard, but we will make our stand here and make those Obsidian bastards pay for every step they take on our sacred ground! Help is coming! And until they do, we will make Aren Bennis and his accursed constructs pay, we shall make them BLEED.
    [5/1/2018 1:55:01 PM] [1:55 PM] ?SAMAEL?: No one ever came. Aren Bennis may have been the last living person to walk these halls.
