> Reaching the temple in one peace, Ted immediately takes up
> a defensive position with his rifle. He keeps his back to
> the group, but listens attentively for the call to move on.
> Koba's makeshift periscope gives a reasonable view of the
> room, which is a round chamber about forty feet in diameter,
> and ten feet high. The walls and ceiling are made of a
> beaten bronze-like metal that reflects Zandeeli's flashlight
> along its dimpled surface. Along the wall, at even
> intervals, are nine boxes that look a lot like sarcophagi,
> about seven feet tall. Eight of the sarcophagi are closed,
> but one is open.
> In the center of the chamber is a round stone platform.
> There may have
> been writing on it at one time, but it is so cracked and
> worn that only
> the faintest remnant of runic script and perhaps pictures
> can be seen. Above it is a small hole in the ceiling, no
> more than an inch wide. A
> faint beam of bluish energy exits it and hits the table.
> The energy
> is clearly that of the ley line.
> Standing in the room are three figures; a young brunette
> haired woman,
> a young man who looks to be a Cyberknight, and another man,
> by appearance, in what looks like some sort of medieval
> armor with a
> lion crest emblazoned on it. This man points straight at
> the periscope
> and says in an unfamiliar accident "We have company."
> It is at that moment that the rest of the company arrives
> at the top of the stairs.
Upon reaching the interior of the temple, Talas holsters his pistol, and draws his second sward. As Talas begins running down the stairs, he begins to feel a familiar sense of excitement and apprehension towards the upcoming battle.
