    For every one hundred men you send us, Ten should not even be here. Eighty are nothing but targets. Nine of them are real fighters; We are lucky to have them, they the battle make. Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior. And he will bring the others back. - Heraclitus of Ephesus, 500 BC

    Lenuran's face takes on a horrified look as he contemplates the dwarves' words.

    "I certainly hope that does NOT come to pass."

    Miltiades presses in with the others. Not that familiar with hobgoblins or trained attack apes he focuses on investigating the complex while they have time before the beast is released from Ithiken's magical prison.

    You leave the ape to be, and venture deep into the ruined temple. Above the arches, crows are croaking and eyeing you suspiciously. The pillars in the center are white marble, veined with ugly red. The altar block of pinkish white marble is roughly oval, a bit over 7 feet long by 5 feet wide. Its top has a hollowed-out portion resembling a humanoid form, with legs apart and arms away from the body. This depression is stained a darker color than the rest. Just north of the altar is a circular marble lined pit a well of sorts 20 feet in diameter. Shards of broken crystal vessels and piles of feces and trash lie scattered about its bottom.
    To the left and right "hands" of the temple equipment can be seen, looks like sleeping place of some sort.

    OOC: XP updated in the RG, Lenuran is level 5!
    please level him up and throw a notification post in the OOC thread when you are done.

    Miltiades considers the altar, leans his spear down and pulls a text from his backpack, seeing if he can identify the specifics of the worship here.

    If there were any marks on the altar, they are gone and forgotten. The altar is bare of any inscriptions. Could be sacrificing you guess or maybe just a ceremony one

    Lenuran

    The gnome looks over the state of the temple. He was slightly revulsed by the trash and refuse covering every inch of the floor.

    "The power of this temple is truly at an end -- in its hay-day, this temple threatened the entire Flanaess, but now, it was the lair of a simple tribe of hobgoblins.... If any of the ancient power still stirred, it definitely would have prevented these hobgoblins from making it their living quarters."

    "I had read of, and seen drawings of the spectacular visages of evil that dominated this place, but I do not see any of them now."


    He walks around, closeby the others, inspecting the debris and lair for any tidbits of interest.

    OOC: Bardic knowledge check (+9 now) for any info regarding anything he sees near the altar and/or walls/reliefs/carvings/etc

    Ithiken walks around the temple proper, looking at anything and everything he can see. "Wow. Just wow."

    He starts walking forward towards the back of the temple to take a look over the staircase heading down.

    Miltiades snaps his book shut and shakes his head. "The inscriptions are too far gone to be identified." He joins Ithiken in heading over to the stairs.

    You wonder around the empty ruined temple.

    Lenuran takes the right wing of the temple. Over here the supporting pillars are sandstone, resting on a red slate floor. A stump of a granite monolith is all that remains of whatever sort of altar might have stood here. Dozens of beds composed of cloth scraps, hay, and leaves fill this area. Many are covered with tattered blankets. Scattered among the beds are cooking pots, small barrels, bags, tools, weapons, and other gear, most of them are useless to you. In the middle of the front wall you see a door.

    Thandis and Ithikan takes the opposite wing, over there they see thick stone columns of deep green, with blood-red striations. The paving blocks are mossy green, and in the center of the wing is a circular dais about 20'' in diameter. On and around the dais are piled barrels, crates and bags, as well as sundry other items: large coils of rope, bolts of cloth, pots, large slabs of meat, tools, and more.
    The dais is tow-tiered; each rises about 19 inches, the inner being 14 feet in diameter, forming a 3 foot wide step along the rim of the lower tier. The lower disc is greenish black, the upper slightly greener. The center of the altar is a depression about 8 feet across, filled with scum covered liquid. In the middle of the front wall you see a door.

    Miltiades goes to the grand staircase, those are flight of steps 20 feet wide, each step beoad and tall, delves down to the north. The stone is a dull gray, but flecks of color black, blue, green, red and white dot its surface.
    To the north of the staircase is a stone railing, with supports of alternating brown, green, and white stone. The upper portion is cinnabar. The floor beyond the railing is paved with 3-foot squares of highly polished red granite. Square columns of some type of yellow stone are carved with painted reliefs showing scenes of fire and suffering with demonic creatures looking on. The stairs lead to the darkness.
