The team entered the temple to find a huge chasm in the center of the floor, pitch black.  Bright blue flames burned all around the opening, and a cage hung suspended over the hole.  Jackal-headed statues were all around the room, and a massive statue towered over the altar.  Looking around, they discovered the golden bowl needed for the ceremony was missing!  They decided to spread out and search the temple.  The knocked down a door and found a trio of special ghouls within!

The ghouls spilled out among the party and tore into them.  Stephan was paralyzed and killed, and so was the magically summoned bear.  They rediscovered they were unharmed by magical weapons.  Koehan cast magic missile from a scroll and hurt all three of the undead.  He then ran and retrieved a magical dagger from Katarina.  Arminious tossed his magical mace to Valor and went to search the room from which the ghouls emerged.  He found a magical sword and came and exchanged weapons with Valor.  With a greatsword in hand once again, the mighty warrior tore into the undead with aplomb.  Garadal used the last of his magical arrows before finding a quiver of more in the cache as well.  Koehan was injured and discovered his elven nature protected him from the paralysis.  Valor succumbed to the paralysis while the Hutaakan priestesses enacted a ritual to hurl some of the temple fire at the undead.    With magic weapons in hand, the group was able to cut down all three of the ghouls and search the cleared room.  They found some magical sling stones and gave them to Katarina.
