a) Fight your way to the sceptre piece and hope that Hessa has your back.
b) Scream and run through the tunnels, drawing the pirate mummies away from the chamber so Hessa can grab the sceptre piece and get out.
c) Scream and run out of the cave altogether. Fighting the undead? Screw that! You can always come back for the sceptre piece later.
