Marudshar is an ancient, sand-worn and supposedly cursed ruined temple that is located in a steep canyon in the Brazen Peaks. The ruins of the temple consists of dozens of toppled pillars and many strange looking statues that have had most of there recognizable features, scoured off by the wind. The site also includes the Path of the Traveler which is a huge, crumbling gateway that is carved with images of sphinx-like creatures and the Sacrament of the Faithless, a sixty-three foot tall pillar carved to look like it is made of writhing humans that have been turned to stone. What god was worshiped here is unknown, the area is not spoken of by locals and curious visitors are deterred from their visit by a pack of lions that roam the valley. While a normal lion would prove little discouragement to seasoned adventurers these lions are different, they are an all male pride, larger in number than a lion pride should be, they have completely black, soulless eyes and can speak to each other in some horrible, guttural language.[1]
