where they arrive just into time to prevent 3 Cultists from blowing themselves, the temple and Dr. Starni up by a 1kt Tac Nuke.
The leader of the 9 cultists; TAHOMEN was high enough level to cast a powerful enough "Control Undead Spell" to sway PANELLIAR, then take complete control once he was in the temple by destroying his Fuci in the Temple. The team fixed his fuci and he returns to normal.
They free Dr. Starni and converse with the Temple Lore Guardians
The Elves worshiped the Goddess Ibra and studied a strange constellation of "Twelve" stars that formed a perfect circle in the sky. The Temple has enough stellar information to place where the constellation should be, but on cross referencing the current star charts of Andromeda, this stellar group is not currently there. It was in "DEAD SPACE" on the edge of the Kett Empire. It may have been destroyed during the Galactic collision which started over 2 million years ago. The Elves called the Cluster of stars , a gate, a prison, and a weapon. They themselves didn't even agree on what it was. What they did do was leave, with their entire city, to visit and the "12" to find out. They left the Temple and its guardians for the curious seeking knowledge, and to protect the information within from the "Dangerous".
TAHOMEN found that a critical book in the temple was missing, stolen
300 years earlier from the temple. He did take some other ancient items of great power however that the guardians describe as including the:
"Gem of Flight"
"Gem of Removing ANY Affliction"
"Gem of ALL Seeing"
" Staff of ALL Healing"
