Location: Manaj's School For The Superpowerdly Gifted
Purpose: Protect the Shanti Virus

The 'Ability chambers' were a series of rooms underneath Manaj's School For The Superpowerdly Gifted that served as the defences surrounding the Shanti Virus. There were seven chambers in total that contained an obstacle or task that guarded the virus from being stolen.

Obstacles

First Obstacle

The only known access way was from a trapdoor in the Third Floor Corridor, which was guarded by the three-headed creature. This obstacle was given by Donna Caff. To get past this, one must "play a bit of music" and put the creature to sleep. The creature guards a trap door that leads to the next task. Jenny uses sedation to get past it and there was another instrument on the ground, used by Glad Yaga.

Second Obstacle

After going through the trapdoor, a long drop led to a chamber filled with plants, planted by Mrs Marbloss. The plant was designed to ensnare and tangle up any intruders. If unfamiliar with the plant, one will be strangled to death. To pass the plant, Michael creates a black hole which destroys the plant life.

Third Obstacle

A downward sloping passage led to another chamber filled with flying keys, created by Mr King. A large wooden door led to another chamber. The door would not open, one needed the correct key to get through. To pass, one must fly to catch the correct key. However, once airborne, the other keys will try and attack the pursuer.

Fourth Obstacle

The next chamber is dark and resembled a graveyard, it contained invisible flooring, made by Miss Yaga. People could walk acroos, however, only Miss Yaga and a few others knew that the floor was invisible.

Fifth Obstacle

The following chamber contained a Mountain Bear that needed to be defeated in order to pass. This chamber had a terrible smell to it and it was of great relief to James and Jenny that they didn't have to be in there too long. This was provided by Miss Grace. When James and Jenny got there, the bear was already knocked out thanks to Glad Yaga.

Sixth Obstacle

The next obstacle guarding the Virus was a logical riddle that one had to solve in order to progress, set by Miss Sky. Upon entering the chamber, the doorway through which one entered is blocked by a purple flame. The other entry way leading to the Shanti Virus, was blocked with black flame. A table with seven bottle of differing shapes sat in the middle of the room.

Each bottle contained a liquid, but the bottles were not labelled with their contents. Three were poison, two contained nettle wine, one contained a potion to safely traverse the black flame, and the last contained a potion that allowed passage back through the purple flames. The riddle, when properly worked out, revealed the contents of each bottle, and which one was safe to drink to allow onward progress:

"Danger lies before you, while safety lies behind, Two of us will help you, whichever you would find, One among us seven will let you move ahead, Another will transport the drinker back instead, Two among our number hold only nettle wine, Three of us are killers, waiting hidden in line. Choose, unless you wish to stay here for evermore, To help you in your choice, we give you these clues four: First, however slyly the poison tries to hide You will always find some on nettle wine's left side; Second, different are those who stand at either end, But if you would move onwards neither is your friend; Third, as you see clearly, all are different size, Neither dwarf nor giant holds death in their insides; Fourth, the second left and the second on the right Are twins once you taste them, though different at first sight."

Seventh Obstacle

The final obstacle was James' necklace, the challenge was designed by Elena Magpie, and probably the most difficult. The only way to obtain the virus was to look into the projection, see yourself having it, but not using it.
