    The congregation apparently do have the skull marks of Bane on their person. The fires begin to die down. Alakdriirn nods, "It is Nicos, mistress. Apparently he and I can speak through whatever means he is using.. They apparently are in another temple."

    You near the end of the long hall which you sent your scrying orb down and you see a large portal. As you near it, you come to a complete stop. There is a wall blocking your way, much like an invisible wall of force. You remember your scrying orb passing through this way easily but it's keeping you from going through.

    "Well, your the one who can go astral." Ia says to Nicos. For now, "Heresy elementals in front, smash the wall."

    As your heresy elementals move to the front to destroy the barrier, their own attacks seem to pass through it. It seems that this barrier only prevents living beings from passing through and as the elementals are technically not living , they seem to be able to pass through.

    With all due respect, I can't translate onto the astral plane, only the shadow plane.
    Nobody remembers the shadows. Ergo, nobody wards against them. Somehow I doubt this is 'anybody', however.

    Tired of waiting for Ia and Nicos, Theda gestures for Tonn to follow her and joins Iivraena in the hallway. Unfortunately, she BUMPS her head on the way into the passage.

    Iivraena nodded, intrigued by the fact that Nicos was somehow speaking with Alakdriirn. She'd have to speak with him more on that later. For now, Theda had the right idea as she walked past her and began to actually seek out Ia and Nicos. She merely smirked as she followed behind her, tugging on Alakdriirn's leash, signing to him, Ask them what the room they are in looks like. We may as well see if we can rendezvous with them somehow....

    Theda

    Theda nods appreciatively at the spectacle of the walls shifting and gateway forming. Cyric might be a right prat, but he had style. She gazes speculatively at the worms for a moment.

    "Either of you have any idea what those worm things are? Besides, needless to say, hungry?"

    Theda gestures to Tonn, who steps forward and unleashes a cone of piercing noise at the worms, then flies back into the room with the dead worshippers and turns into a dark, menacing shadowy shape, about 10' tall. Theda transforms into an almost translucent crystalline dragon, breathes out a blast of intense light on the worms, and also darts back into the room.

    Iivraena looks down at the worms, as if studying them for a bit. After a couple of minutes, she nodded, figuring it'd be more beneficial to try to command them as opposed to scaring them. "I'll see what I can do." She finally replies to Theda, closing her eyes and beginning to focus on trying to rebuke the undead.

    Iivraena nodded, a proud smirk on her face as she replied to Theda. "Of course. Otherwise they would have merely run away." Her eyes remained upon the small group of undead she had managed to manipulate as she began commanding them, both mentally and verbally, keeping her tone in Common as Undead was one of the few tongues she didn't know. "I'm assuming you all know this place more than we do... thus, begin leading us out and remain in front." This way, should she, Alakdriirn, Tonn or Theda run into anything immediately, the undead would be in front of them as shields of sorts. She waited for them to begin obeying before following behind.

    Damn. Nicos exhaled, and ran toward what he presumed was the exit, following the sound of Ia's wings. He jumped as he was about to hit the portal, hoping it would go through to somewhere helpful. It really would be a pity if it didn't...

    The shadowy worms start moving past you back out into the main foyer, as you follow them you see the room you came from occupied by multiple elemental beings.

    The room is the same as before (save the elementals and if you look up you will see bodies in the statues mouth, it seems like a tight fit up in there as Nicos and Ia passed through the portal as well and now which exits out of a 1 ft x 1.5 ft mouth

    As you pass through the portal you feel a certain tightness suddenly around your body. You pop out of the portal and now are squished up inside of the mouth of a statue, much like the one from the previous temple you were in a this seems to be where the exit to the portal is The dimensions on the mouth are 1 ft x 1.5 ft as it seems to hold your less malleable bodies where as the elementals simply glided through the tight spot.

    While I am grateful for the contributions of your private army of heresy, Ia, it would be nice if you could remove yourself from this rather cramped area. Your wing is in my mouth. Nicos says, somewhat muffled by the cramped conditions. The wing tasted like a combination of onion and cardamon, a combination of tastes that Nicos had hated since childhood.

    Iivraena sighed, figuring she probably should have been more specific on her command. "When I said out.... I meant out of the room and into the next." She thought a bit, realizing the last time anything that would have revealed the correct path had occurred whilst the others were on the other side. "So then... if nothing's been happening....." Her eyes widened as she finally understood. "Damnit! I understand now...."

    As she looks up, she sees Nicos and Ia trying to get out of the mouth. She clears her throat, ensuring the two can hear her before speaking,,"Stop! Go back to where you were! This temple works when on the opposite sides which are, ultimately, in the form of a mirror of sorts. Think on it... paths weren't revealed unless either of us did anything while we were on the other side! So.... I know this is an annoying request... but somehow try to get back to your side of the temple!"

    That could have made a bit more sense. Altough she does have a viable theory with the mirrored temples. if we stay in contact, we should be able to avoid killing each other by accident.

    Iivraena sighed again, relieved she hadn't been too late. She nodded before speaking again, "Yeah... I can." She was relatively sure Theda and Tonn had all heard everything... but in case, she turned to them and then began to relay what was going to occur, "I know you didn't like it last time as neither you nor Nicos accepted it... but in order for us to solve this, we'll need to remain separated. Therefore, do you think you can accept Ia's Hivemind spell this time? If not, I suppose I can relay to you what I'm seeing but it might be helpful especially with me already having one bad eye." She said, pointing to her eye patch covering her left eye.

    Theda tilts her head, considering.

    "Very well. Of course I blocked it the first time. A weird-looking elf pops through a gate and tries to join brains? But if, as you say, these two temples are in some way connected - and I don't begin to understand why you think that - then I suppose that link will be useful. In the meantime, shall we send those worms back down the tunnel and get this job done?"

    Iivraena nodded at Nicos's words. "I know that... but if nothing else... perhaps you and Alakdriirn can maintain that form of communication you two had been doing earlier? I'm not sure how far Ia can do his Hivemind from so I'm trying to wait for him... but all the same, Theda has a point that's called we need to try to move on.."

    She nodded, annoyed at the knowledge she had just... well.... figured out as she turned towards the small group of undead, "Back to the skull wall. There's gotta be something we missed...." She murmured, finally replying to Theda's question her theory as she walked, "Simple.... when Nicos and Alakdriirn were speaking,, Nicos had mentioned some weird things happening around the same time we did stuff and vice versa. Thus they were on the opposite side when it all occurred and it seems to be the only logical way any of this could have gone on, lest this was some weird type of mirror."

    Theda shrugs, and nods.

    "As you say. I'm sure that as we proceed, we'll learn about the temple's magics. In the meantime, there was the passage that the worms came through. Perhaps we could follow them back the way that they came?"
