C3. (The Temple of the Elk) It will take three days to fully map this area. Composed of vast fir trees riddled with disease and twisted to form strange faces, the forest near the temple has taken on a wild aspect that is both hostile and alien in its bearing. In addition to the strange fungus and lichen which grows in every crevice, faces leer out from diseased trees and pools of stagnant water fill the air with a fetid reak. Although the place is abundant with life, it still seems cold and mysterious, as if the grass does little more then hide threats rather then nourish deer and other herbivores which frequent the area. Game is becoming more sparse which is suprising considering how deep you are getting into the forest. At last you find the temple at the end of a heavily wooded box valley at the end of a long deer trail.. even from a fair distance, there is an aura of menace which exudes from the place.
