A Smallish Temple

You cut your way through the vines and branches and discover a stone building that appears to be another, smaller temple. The door is an intricately-carved stone slab -- you don't see any obvious way to open it, but closer inspection of the carvings reveals four triangular depressions in the center, as though some parts were missing.
If you attempt to adventure at the temple after defeating the Protector Spectre, the following message is yielded:
Mansion House of the Black Friars, Redux
You wander into the empty temple and look around. Remember when you were in here before, and tried to gank some old amulet off of that mummy? And then its ghost came out and tried to kill you? But you destroyed it, and won the ancient doohickey?
Good times, man. Good times.
|Place the stone triangles into the carving|
You carefully socket the four triangular stones into their places in the carving, and step back as the door slowly slides to one side with a loud grinding noise. Cautiously, you peer inside...
The interior is a single large chamber, the walls decorated with elaborate carvings and frescoes showing the four gods of the city raining punishment down upon the wicked (and whatever innocent bystanders happened to be nearby). A large, ornate stone dais stands in the center of the chamber, with a mummy lying in repose atop it. The figure's elaborate headdress and golden jewelery indicates that he must have been a high priest or something of the sort. A large circular amulet on the mummy's chest particularly draws your attention.
You creep up to the mummy and poke it with your weapon. Nothing happens, so you poke it again, a little more bravely.
Nothing happens. Satisfied, you reach for the amulet.
With a shriek of rage, a ghostly, luminescent spectre leaps from the mummy and reaches for your throat with spectral claws.
