First you hear the clacking, as if metal spears are being jabbed into stone and the sound reverberates down the hallway. Then you see it. A metal monstrosity, looking to be half spider, and half furnace turns its empty glowing eyes your way. Tubes and claws swing towards you, and its metal legs clank into the floor as it approaches.
