They were in the middle of a very old and very dense forest. The place had been left alone for hundreds of years and no one understood why. Ancient texts from tribes that used to thrive in this old forest spoke of a power deep in the heart of the place. A power that protected all the people who came in peace. Rumors had begun to form that this was haunted, and for no unjust cause. The place let off a strange feeling that made him want to either turn tail and run, or just sink into the nature around him and never come out, he couldnt figure out which urge was stronger. Nearly half a dozen people had gone missing from this forest, and one would think the government would get involved after the third disappearance, but they never came. The laws of time had seemed to abandon this forest. He had already seen and documented creatures he thought had gone extinct a long time ago living and thriving here. One thing was for sure, he thought, this forest was not normal and he was going to find out why. He glanced back at the other dozen men and women who had decided to brave the journey with him. They had all read the stories, and felt the strange sensation of the forest and they were intrigued as well. Kyros returned his gaze forward, hiked his pack up higher on his shoulder and resumed moving forward. The map told him that the center wasnt very far, but then again, he had had the same thought nearly an hour before. It was nearly another hour before he hesitated once more. The sounds of animals and insects and life in general had become silent. He glanced around warily, pulling a flashlight out of his pocket and creeping forward. Seconds later, he found himself staring at a stone doorway. He blinked and took a step back. A temple, nearly covered in vines and plants, stood in front of them. He grinned and looked back at his group. "I think we found it!" They all exchanged looks and grinned as well, following Kyros inside. The beams of a dozen flashlights highlighted everything around them. The walls were simple and unadorned, and held no side chambers. The hallway continued for nearly a quarter of a mile before opening up into a large chamber. Stone benches sat scattered about, and in the middle of the room, surrounded by a low stone wall were two statues. They were of two men standing as if facing an oncoming storm. Energy and power seemed to radiate from them. Transfixed, Kyros walked over to the statues, pocketed his flashlight in a daze, and touched both of the statues on the arm. He didnt know what compelled him to touch them, but when he did, the stone began cracking and shattering loudly. He yelped and scrambled back, his mind clear again. It took only seconds before the stone was scattered everywhere and where previously two stone statues stood, the men, very much made of flesh, stood. One of the men, a tall muscular man, looked around the chamber, his fiery gaze sharp and not unlike a predator. He was nearly 6' 3" and had shoulder length hair that seemed to suck up any light around it, much like a black hole. He dusted off the dark cloak he wore and looked over at the man beside him. "Are you okay?" He asked, his voice rich. Kyros and his party stood in shock, too terrified to move.
