    The floor of this chamber is covered with centuries of untouched dust. Along the walls, cobwebs cover gruesome fresco work depicting unworthy souls dismembered by demonic sphinxes. In the west wall, a pair of niches hold painted statues of gynosphinxes (see picture below), glaring with wooden menace from beneath layers of ancient filth. A third niche stands empty to the south, while a fourth filled with rubble lies to the north.


    Rest of the Party
    Map is attached; you entered this room from the south, the only egress other than back the way you came is to the north.

    He holds his magically lighted bow up trying to see into the next room. "Shall we keep moving?" He says to those in front of him.

    OOC - Where on the south wall was the niche? Was it to the right of the opening we came in through?

    Tsadok will inspect the statues and just below. Specifically looking for possible traps before he proceeds to handle of them.

    The niche on the south wall is actually the entrance to the room. Tsadok perceives no traps in his search of the room. The statues prove to be as they appear - wooden carvings, once finely crafted and painted to seem very lifelike but now subject to the ravages of time as most other things in this temple.

    Tsadok will pick up one statue to inspect it and the underneath side as well.

    They're actually life size - so the size of a lion with a woman's torso and eagle wings. Tsadok manages to shift one and finds nothing underneath. They truly seem to be exactly what they look like (for once )

    OOC: You've poked into every nook and cranny you've come across, and made the loop back to the first room downstairs. That's likely the whole of it.
