THE TEMPLE OF THE IDOL
The Temple of the Idol is place of worship of several Lizardfolk who serve the fallen Archon known as Baalzabul and his viceroy Moloch. Thieves have sought the Temple simply due to the rumors of intense treasure thought to he houses within its stone walls. However, it is often religious men (monks, paladins, knights, and clerics) that seek to find the Temple in order to destroy the Evil that lies within. Known for their ruthlessness, the Lizardfolk kidnap travelers to sacrifice to their vile god.
The Idol itself is an immense statue rises nearly 50 feet from a marble altar. Carved from some unknown reddish rock, the statue features two immense red gems for eyes, a flaming bowl held in two immense clawed hands, and a mouth widened in a rictus that promises pain and suffering to all who gaze on its fearful visage.
The Temple of the Idol is detailed more fully in “Deep Dwarven Delve” the third part of the L series written by Len Lakofka.
