You step into the temple, holding up the glowing crystal you found in the wumpus's lair. It emits a bright blue light that illuminates the darkened corridors, revealing elaborate bas-relief engravings on the walls. You consider putting the crystal away, so you don't have to look at them. It wouldn't be so bad, really, if they didn't writhe like that.
Krakrox pulled up short, and ducked into a nearby alcove. He had heard voices -- several of them -- coming in his direction. Fortunately, they sounded human...
As the group of cultists rounded the corner, they were rather surprised to be suddenly attacked by a giant muscular man in a loincloth. (Well, all of them except the two who had just had their heads slammed together, who weren't in much condition to have an opinion any more.) What's the collective term for a group of cultists, anyway? A pack? A squad? There aren't enough of them for a mob. Maybe a clique of cultists? Or something referring to their occupation, like a ritual, or a chant. A chant of cultists? Hmmm.
Well, anyway, enough musing, it's time to beat some heads in.
Beset from all sides, Krakrox suffered a torrent of blows from the evil cultists. Argh! Ooh! Ugh!
One of the cultists kneels behind you as another pushes you backwards. When you stumble to the ground, a third one kicks you in the head. Man, these guys are dicks. Ow! Oof! Oof!
Two of the cultists hold your arms while another one kicks you several times in a sensitive location. Ugh! Ow! Ugh!
The cultists dogpile on you, kicking and punching mercilessly. Jerks! Ouch! Ow! Ugh!
As one of the cultists attacked, Krakrox grabbed his fist and threw him aside like a rag-doll.
Two of the cultists accidentally clock each other as you duck out of the way. Nyuk nyuk nyuk.
You grab one of the cultists and use him to shield yourself from the other cultists' blows.
The cultists don't seem to be able to agree on which one of them should attack you next. (FUMBLE!)
