Description summary:
The description depends on the level of Ambition: Nemesis quality.

2200"A very tasteful internment. It speaks to excellent character," […] one last thing to do. The bath must be warmed – it would be disastrous to wake the dead cold. […] Cups turns its attention to a set of fat ale-barrels […] stamped with the print of an apple.
2300[…] the candles […] must all be lit at once […] an impossible task for two – the Capering and the Shivering Relickers […] assist. Seven hundred and seventy seven candle flames soon flicker […]

[…] Mr Cups steps forward, bearing a knife. "Now," […] "We may begin."

2400Cups gathers its things, hurriedly wishing both of you the very best. […] Then Cups hurtles from the amphitheater […] as though Hell and all its wretched ministers were at its back. The Relickers follow […] leaving you entirely alone, but for the bath.
2500[…] You are alone in the quiet with the one you lost, and walked through blood to regain. They do not remember you. They turn to you, smiling, and then look up at the cavern roof, speckled with false-stars. They gasp. They do not remember you.
