    I can't make them out either, Ben. But we'd better keep on going as the map says. Let's move, Wraiths and tag-alongs!

    (Anne: when are we opening this chamber?)

    *Looks at coconut cup that is filled with sushipinacolada* Hmmm... I wonder if we could open up a juice stand out here? I'm sure the native would go wild for them.

    *Looks around* Umm on second thought, I hope there are no natives here. People in places like this always seem to want to eat you.

    *Gets back into X-wing*

    Hey MJ, I don't think there's any booby traps down here!




    I hope...

    You are now allowed to enter into the temple, but just the two first rooms, it is dark. More details coming tomorrow. And Mara I guess the highest number in the rogue squadron takes lead.

    Darkness... right, ok. The jungle is pretty dense here, but if I'm not mistaken, the temple should be right...
    *bumps into stone wall*
    HERE!

    There are probably many booby-traps inside. well, team, what do youm propose we do?

    So I guess since YY hasn't shown up I'm lead :D

    *Flies over dense jungle and spies a stone monotlith.*

    Do you suppose that's the temple?


    *sees wraiths walking into wall*

    Yup, that's it!

    On the walls you can see ancient letters, you have to read them and interpret them to go on.

    In the next section of the temple there is 5 chambers, named a,b,c,d,e (I'm tired). In four of these chambers there is a coffin. 3 coffins has a treasure inside them, it could be sushibeer, gold, or a secret artefact.

    Your mission is to find the right room, with the right treasure.

    which one's the right room, anne? or is that what we need to find out?

    *pulls out glowstick and examines lettering*
    What do you think, JGoC? I think they might be directions about how to get to the treasure. Now if only we could read them.
    *looks for dictionary type of thing*
    Do you happen to have one, wingmate?

    btw, we seem to be the only Rogues here. I hope YY doesn't show up, imagine if he was in charge. :eek:

    *Rumagges around in napsack looking for dictionary,*

    Hmmm.. 'How to speak Astromech', '501 Old Corellian Verbs',
    hehe, here's 'Reading Ancient Runes for Dummies'.

    *Hands it to MJ,*

    Do you suppose this will work?

    *pulls Loki back out of the chamber*
    I don't know if that was the right one, but this writing here *points at writing* will tell us where to go. You have any clue how to decipher it? it looks like pictographs.

    Yes actually I do know some about ancient languages, they were courses that I majored in at college. Let me see the top ones say Eat at Joes and point to the east the bottoms one says hidden temple 10 Klicks and point to the west. *Starts to go east*

    Thanks JGoC, I think this will do it. RO, why don't you join us? Ok, write this down, wingmate:
    Go straight down this corridor for 50 feet. Turn left at the statue of Anne. ( ;) )

    *follows directions; ends up in a chamber containing a pillar with an inscription and a door on every wall and on the ceiling and floor*

    The inscription reads:
    Six doors this chamber contains,
    One will lead you back from where you came,
    Two doors opposite will lead you the same.
    Beware both of descent and ascent,
    for they spell doom for those who are treasure-bent.
    One among our number remains,
    This will carry you on to great gain.

    What do you all think? It took me nearly 15 minutes to write that. :p

    What should we do now, JGoC?

    Hmmm... *looks crypticly at doors*

    Well I think we should go to the door straight in front of us.

    Because we can't take the ones in the floor or ceiling. The one we just came out of will take us back from where we came (so that eliminates three choices), then the other two doors are facing eachother, and the riddle says those aren't it, so I gues it forward!

    (hehe, how'd I do? That kinda remided me of the potion riddle in Harry Potter, very confusing)

    *Looks at door in question* Hey isn't that the symbol for Anne? Maybe this is a Temple for her!!!

    Does the temple look anything like the one where Indiana Jones runs from the giant boulder?

    It is a pyramid, but with a lot of chambers beneath it.

    No No, JGOC you translated it wrong. Let me see your book *Reads cover out loud* Ancient Egyptian Pictographs. Oh that explains it, this isn't ancient Egyptian, This is ancient Hindu, well at least the pictographs your reading are, it says:

    those who wish to die,
    fool then enter this temple and go inside,
    Kali rules all that enters here,
    experience the endless nightmare,
    For those who follow the silver swallow
    while become one of Kali's follow,
    Those who follow the cup of java
    have heart ripped out and casted into lava.
    Those who wish to live never follow the pig
    but follow the exit sign
    and on bacon you will dine.
    But those of stout heart and wish this
    treasure not to win enter if you dare.

    That's what it says, I think we better work together if we want to survive *Hands out bambo sticks* place these wear you about to step to make sure you don't step on a traap door or something like that and make sure you press hard, any weapon would be a good idea for who knows what's inside. *Hands out a projection pole to the person in front.* This will warn us of any traps cast by shadows.

    Loki, the Rogue's aren't even with us now... they're likely on the other side of the pyramid. You're translation of this inscription is quite interesting. what do you guys suggest?

    Wraith Lead, here's a suggestion: Get a new translator. ;)

    JGoC, I was thinking of the Harry Potter potions riddle when I wrote that. :D
    *walks down corridor that's on the other side of the door*
    So, I'm guessing that this is an ancient temple for Anne, and that the treasure contained within it is sushibeer. But how do we get to it? Maybe there are some hidden passages along the walls...

    EDIT: I just realized that Loki made a semi-coherent post! :eek: That's a first for him! *faints from shock but recovers quickly*
