The Shrine of the Ancient Ones

Description and History[edit]

The Zealan Gods
The Shrine of the Ancient Ones is a Zealan Temple deep under the surface, long forgotten by many. Only one entrance exists, from the Catacombs. Inside the Shrine, behind a number of trap systems, puzzles, and a maze, exists a temple with three statues, representation of the three Gods of Emotion: Amoras the God of Love, Apathas the God of Balance, and Odion the God of Anger. Behind them lies the tomb of Khumash-Gor, the greatest warrior in all of Pagan.

It was here, where the Avatar met the Gods. After defeating Khumash-Gor and retrieving the Obelisk Tip, the Avatar was told, how to leave Pagan.

The Zealan Ceremony Shield and the Skull of Quakes can be found within the Shrine.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Ancient Ones are in the Lovecraftian Mythos a separate race of Outer Gods who acts as the Ultimate Gate. They eternally dream atop their hexagonal pedestals, stirring only when disturbed in some way, or visited by a worthy traveler who has found his or her way through the First Gate. These timeless entities dwell in a vast and mighty temple beyond space and time, somewhere between the planes.
