4.1[edit | edit source]

You stand before the Tower of Temptation.
Soaring over the surrounding wastelands,
it seems to pierce the sky.
"The Maker is said to dwell deep underground, right?"
"So say many tales and ancient texts."
"I heard that the Lizard God and Beast God are underground there, too."
"Are we to find a clue to the Maker here?"
"If we knew for sure, we'd already be on our way."
"There must be a reason why it's not so simple."


It seems to pierce the sky.

4.2[edit | edit source]

"All who return from this tower have one thing in common."
"And what's that?"
"They lose their memory."
"Sounds like an old wives' tale to me!"
"So that's why no one knows where to find the Maker."
"Hold on. If they lose their memory, then how is it we know about this tower and its relation to our creator?"
Though clouded by doubt, your party can only press on. To stop now would only mean acceptance of impending doom.
And so, you open the door to the tower...


Your party can only press on.

Beware floor traps

4.3[edit | edit source]

Inside, you see that the tower walls are painted with elaborate murals.
A word catches your eye:
"Gallus"
Why you can read the strange script is a mystery, but you are certain of what it says.


Gallus.

The primordial civilization of Gallus wielded control over life itself.
Longevity, cloning, the creation of new species, and...
... the gathering of all living things.

4.7[edit | edit source]

"Are those people?"
"Sure doesn't look like it to me."
Something is painted there on the wall--something that is not human.
Still, it has a sense of purpose about it.
"They're swarming to the big thing in the middle."
"They look like a bunch of bees."


Still, it has a sense of purpose behind it.

4.8[edit | edit source]

As you climb the tower's spiral staircase, the story of advancing ages seems to unfold in the murals along the walls.
"How fascinating."
"Indeed. How could such a great work have remained concealed for so long?"
"I already told you. All who enter the tower--"
"Lose their memory?"
Your pace gradually quickens as you ascend, seeking whatever awaits at the top.


Seeking whatever awaits at the top.

"Is that... the heavens?"
There, painted on the wall, stretches a vast sea of stars.

4.10[edit | edit source]

On the final landing before the stairway winds to the top, you come across an especially large mural.
An unsettling air emanates from it.
It depicts a colossal ship, a fiery downpour, and lamenting souls.
It is horror itself, brought to life in paint.
The entire party falls silent.
At long last, you reach the top.
There you find a chamber.
"Huh?There's nothing here."
A faint whirring sound reaches your ears, like a machine coming to life.
"What's that sound?"
"Seems to be coming from that thing over there."
In the center of the chamber sits a strange object that looks like a hard lump of metal.
"Urrragh..."
A lizardman crouches beside it.
With a crazed look in his eyes, he calls himself king.


He calls himself king.

"Wh-what happened? Last I recall, I'd come here seeking my god."
The madness seems to have left him.
"I bet he was under someone's control."
"Like whose?"
"... The Maker's?"
"No point in dwelling on that now."
"True. Well, let's try to find something that will lead to the Maker here."
