The interior of the castle was quite dark, although the numerous windows were unshuttered. The wooden floors creaked and echoed ...

By the time you arrive at the temple, you will feel the worries of the world have lifted as your body and spirit become attuned to your surroundings.

As you leave Maniden and continue on, you will come to a clearing surrounded by three temples: ...
