The pool room leads to a hallway.

Hall to the Temple

This hall is 100 feet long. It is made of normal stone but is covered with algae. The hallway descends down towards the temple. As the PCs descend, the hallway begins to to move and buckle. The walls begin to ooze hideous slime and all PCs must make a DX roll or fall into the slimy walls. Any PC touching the wall will will take 2d damage on exposed flesh and the ooze will reach flesh in DR seconds on armored flesh unless removed. The hallway will buck all non-followers of the ancient god during the entire time the PCs are in the hallway.

Temple of the Ancient God

The double doors to this temple are of orichalcum and they have many demonic and serpent etchings upon them. The doors are unlocked and when they are opened a large temple area is revealed. Within the temple it is quite dark (-5 to vision), there is no way to use light spells or torches to make it brighter than this.It would be completely dark without any light however. The floors are made of green marble with strong veins of gold and silver that shine in the torchlight. On each side of the temple walls are a set of six pillars made of green serpentine run through with strange reds and violets. The pillars are carved in such a way that they resemble intertwined and twisting serpents. The ceiling is over 50 feet high and the walls are made of marble patterned in reptillian scales. The room exudes a strong evil and it can be felt by all, particularly holy PCs. At the end of the temple is a sacrificial altar carved out of beautifully patterned malachite which is upon a diaz with three steps of adventurine. Behind the altar is a wall of obsidion. On each side of the obsidion wall are copper braziers with green patinas which burn a golden flame causing unnerving shadows to dance across the temple. The entire temple seems to defy normal geometry and the pillars and walls seem to subtley move.

After a time a figure in an deep green robe will walk towards the PCs carrying a small torch. This is Saepha, the poison elf temple mistriss. She is quite beautiful with delicate features and a youthful and innocent face. Her skin is a light green color and her curly hair is a deep green which is pulled back from her face. Her eyes are predatory and serpentine, gleaming with a golden sparkle in the torchlight. She says to the PCs in a gentle voice "Your bravery is commendable, surrender now and the great Nyaga will reward you with a swift death."

If the PCs surrender then the avatar of Nyaga will come forth and devour them. If the PCs refuse or attack Saepha, she will grin playfully, revealing her fang-like canines and say "So be it, Nyaga will show no mercy."

Saepha is just a projecting an image of herself and this image will quickly disappear. Afterwards, the black obsidion wall behind the altar will grow infinately black and a cool otherworldly breeze will come forth causing the brazier flames to writhe like dancing serpents. Any torch or lantern flames will do likewise. Two large red serpent eyes will leer out of the infinate blackness (what used to be the obsidion wall). (Fright Check -2) The eyes follow the PCs and eventually what appears to be a huge black serpent-like thing coming forth from the wall. The serpent thing will then coil around the altar and ready itself to strike the PCs. The evil emanating from this thing is incomprehensible to mortal minds and holy PCs are absolutely revolted by this monstrosity.

Avatar of Nyaga

Bite(20): 3d impaling + poison HT roll or paralysis until cured.

When the avatar is finally slain it will begin to decompose and form a hideous chaotic mass of serpent like things before dissipating.
