17. OBELISK ROOM
A 20ft tall obelisk stands from floor to (vaulted) ceiling of this octagonal chamber.
Upon each of its sides strange runes and sigils have been carved.
Open archways lead east, west and south, and to the north is a set of sturdy wooden doors (bound with iron).
ENCOUNTER: If the PCs have not been in area XXX yet, there will be a sound of commotion from that direction (banging and panicked goblin voices).
REVELATION: The inscriptions on the obelisk are written in a forgotten tongue – but if translated each side will be seen to be dedicated (almost religiously) to one of the elemental spheres (i.e. air, earth, fire, and water). Each side also features a number of sigils that corresponds to the element in question
- THE SIGILS -
Notes to self: Passage ‘XXX’ is to the west. Furthermore, the above sigils will also be used in some kind of puzzle (for example, a character might need a key with a flame decoration to open a lock inscribed with the bottom left 'fire' triangle).
