The sky burns a bloody bright red color that casts an eerie glow upon the
temple. Four tall ornate black obsidian pillars stand in dominance over
the temple. The floor is checkered white marble and black obsidian which
is meticulously polished. Flames form walls between the pillars making
the temple very hot. Set in the center of the temple is a very simple yet
eloquent black obsidian altar. Resting upon the altar there is a polished
sacrificial dagger, waiting for someone to make the blood oath to appease
the lord of the Crimson Sun. Evil radiates everywhere.

The crimson sky burns the color of blood, inspiring those in the Crimson Sun to spill the blood of their enemies.

The black and white checkered floor below you is symbolic of the balance
between good and evil. Though good is our enemy, it gives us measure to
our wickedness. Without good, there is no evil. However, that does not
mean they are to be spared. We will make their existence miserable and

The wall of flame burns a bright blue and green hue and emits great heat.
A statue carved in finely polished black obsidian stands before the fire.
It depicts a human woman, a plaque below it can be read...

"Lady DarkClaw, Keeper of the Elements."

It goes into further detail below...
"The Goddess took in Lycron in his final years as a mortal and helped him
reach immortality. Lady DarkClaw and the Keepers of the Elements should
be respected. DarkClaw taught Lycron the path of Chaos."

The wall of flame in the west burns brightly and emits a dark crimson hue
which emits very bright light. There is a statue standing before the wall
that depicts two men in combat. The man standing victoriously over his
defeated opponent flashes an evil grin ready to deliver the coup de grace
The defeated man appears to be begging for mercy, a plaque bears the only
two words, "No mercy."

The flames part so that you may freely enter and depart from the temple.

The wall of flame burns bright red and looks like big jagged teeth trying
to envelope the sky. The amount of heat the wall produces is incredible!
Standing before the wall is a statue carved out of obsidian that rests on
a base of highly polished marble. The statue appears to be the figure of
Lord Lycron, the Lord of the Crimson Sun. An inscription caved into the
marble base can be seen, it reads...

"A simple gnome from Thistlerock, to Fire God in the sky."

The wall of flame burns bright orange and flickers wildly. A statue can
be seen standing proudly in front of the wall. It is carved into obsidian
and is highly polished, standing upon a white marble base. It depicts a
an elf standing proudly before what appears to be a great sequoia. Below
on the base an inscription can be read...

"Lord Kerriariadne, God of Darkness."

It goes into further detail below...

"The God of the Crimson Sun spent the majority of his mortal life serving
the Lord of Darkness, Kerriariadne is to be exalted by all members of the
order. Kerriaradne taught Lycron the path of Evil."
