Ancient Temple
Ancient Temple

Krakrox passed an eye over the large building that stood alone, encircled by the great stone wall. It was, undoubtedly, a temple -- the barbarian had seen enough of them in his time to know, even without the obvious step-pyramid architecture and carvings all over it.

The door proves to be an immovable stone slab, of course. You pull away some straggling green vines to reveal a large circular depression in it, perhaps a hand and a half in width.


Go South

Enter the temple

Krakrox gave the stone slab a thump with his fist, knowing it to be futile. The people that built these were very serious about their jobs, and if they didn't want you getting in without some sort of key, you simply weren't going to. Well, barring a nearby cultist to quietly kill and steal a robe from, and then follow at the back of the line when the rest went inside... but as this cult had surely been extinct for eons, that wasn't going to be an option.


Unlock the temple door

You fit the two halves of the stone circle together, and slot them into the depression on the door. After a moment's pause, a low rumbling becomes audible, and then the stone slab lowers into the ground. The temple is now open to you, if you are ready to face whatever lies inside.

Sensing that the temple was his ultimate destination in this quest, Krakrox returned to the jungle to scout around for a bit and make sure he had not missed anything of importance. Or any more goblins that might need thrashing.


Leave the City

Poking around in an abandoned ruin was starting to grate on Krakrox's nerves. He was a man of action, ill-suited to scavenger hunts and puzzley nonsense.

You decide to return to the jungle and find something to kill instead.

Krakrox passed an eye over the large building that stood alone, encircled by the great stone wall. It was, undoubtedly, a temple -- the barbarian had seen enough of them in his time to know, even without the obvious step-pyramid architecture and carvings all over it. He had not, however, encountered one quite this... unsettling. It was difficult to put a finger on -- perhaps a certain leering quality to the carvings, or the way the levels of the steps didn't seem quite square. Krakrox got the distinct impression that the stone wall surrounding it wasn't meant to keep people out.

The door proves to be an immovable stone slab, of course. You pull away some straggling green vines to reveal a large circular depression in it, perhaps a hand and a half in width, below an engraving of an eye with wiggly tentacles coming out of it. It's not a particularly frightening engraving, but for some reason you shudder at the sight of it anyway.

Krakrox gave the stone slab a thump with his fist, knowing it to be futile. The people that built these were very serious about their jobs, and if they didn't want you getting in without some sort of key, you simply weren't going to. Krakrox's usual alternate solution was to sneak in at the back of the line when the cultists all entered the temple for their nightly ritual, but there didn't appear to be any cultists in the vicinity, and the barbarian was not in the mood to wait.
