You are standing in the Temple of Light. The temple is made of huge
slabs of marble, covered with carved dragons, seemingly to radiate the
essence of goodness. This temple is where the various gods of goodness can
be worshipped. You see the entrance to the Paladin Guild to the east, the
Temple Square to the south, and a set of marble steps leading upwards to the
Altar of Light.

Flitting about before you is a red-skinned winged demon. A set of
blackened horns protrude out from his forehead, curling back and down and
curving to stay in line with his jaw and end slightly past his pointed chin.
Eyes in the shape of tiny black orbs glare hatefully outwards from beneath a
set of wispy brows which curl upwards at either end. His wings flutter
noisily to keep him aloft and they have the color to match the darkest
nights and the texture to match boiled leather. His arms are noticeably
longer than his legs and they hang limply from their sockets while his legs
dangle uselessly behind him. A whip-like tail which ends in a spade carves
patterns in the air to help in adjusting his speed and direction as need be.
He is a master explorer.
Szkrech is in excellent condition.

  1. This was a really fun interaction. I thought my Heraldic curiosity was going to get me killed several times. Demons can be quite unpredictable but sometimes knowledge is worth the risk.
