Against the Heroes - The Rod of Dancing Elves
The imps were the cherub statues.
The next room contained a reliquary of bones and a censure in which the tears of Illmatter were poured by Ambrose (who got them from the statue of Illmatter that he failed to tell anyone about). The next room had a fire pit and guardians of flame which were defeated by the party and led into a room with three tables that had three locks resting on the table. Ambrose took the locks.
"Come inside foul demon spawn so that we might smite you in the name of the Holy gods!" An angelic voice boomed from inside the next hall as brilliant illumination revealed the hall to be filled with paladins, living statues of the gods and an archon. After a brief stalemate the battle was on! The Angel who was called Maueli kept back as the paladins charged forward attempting to smite evil. Shadow and Shar along with Ambrose and Match stepped up and were backed by the power of Thad and his Elidron and the cleric Ruby who used her healing blasts to great effect during the combat. In the end Maueli fell but not before he used his Holy Lighting Sword of Chaotic and Evil Bane almost took Shadow through two very strong hits from the living statues and a few well placed crossbow and sword swings into the gnomes Match and Ambrose. "You defeat me but Light will overcome Darkness."
A small unit of demons was seen attacking the temple as the party left the battle and snuck back into the darkness of the night...
