Deep in the trail of Auf Maglal, the two Humans, and the Dead who followed them unseen, reached an outcropping under which flowed a beautiful river.
Stalefish darted under the water feasting on the spawning Shash’lee slugs.
The tropical treeline was marred by a wide two story stone tower of obvious human manufacture.
It was marked with the symbols of both the Church of One, and the Inquisition. The two humans reached the side of the rocky outcropping and realized if the tower was drilled through the stone it was actually at least five stories tall and its entrance was a small white marble chapel with a simple carving of an open book. There was no doorway, only the open book which took up the far wall of the chapel. It was sized as if for a giant. On its surface were smooth indentations. One for a cross, one for the bottom of the censer, and three more whose object was not clear. Underneath each was a name.
Under the cross it said Grimaldus, under the censer it said Siedermann, under the next three symbols it said Dragonsbane, Goblinsbane, and Leonin.
All three would notice the censer’s place did not say Nightshade as Khalid had said earlier, here its impression said Siedermann.
Resugent would see written in Latin on one of the walls the following, “Here is the greatest secret hidden by the Church of One. Only the most faithful of the faithful can experience the truth present within this tower. This chapel is to commemorate the day that Kasanth Dannor, Bishop of the Goblin Lands was awarded the title of Bishop of the new Church of One Nation to be built North of the Colonies.”
“North of the colonies?” said Resugent, “There is no Church of One Nation built North of the Colonies.”
“I think the person who carved it is referring to the Colony the Earthers now call the City of the Gods,” replied Khalid using the Leyas to translate without Resugent knowing, “The Church of One was very…instrumental in the formation of that colony. More importantly we must have beat the one who stole the Cross here.”
–[Now take it away players, do you open it? Do you enter using the items? If so…how do you address the matter of the cross?. This conversation counts as taking place in the past, week 4, so please do not reference events from Week 5 and onward here.]–
