You come to a great spiral staircase. Leaning against the banister is a young man with wavy blond hair. He greets you as you approach, and introduces himself as Randolph Carter.
While speaking with him, you learn that it was he who led you to this place. Removing a tarot card from his coat pocket, he hands it to you. This fifth card strikes you as the most peculiar. He then disappears, leaving you to descend the Steps of Slumber to the Dreamlands alone.
