Kage picks up two of the rocks, and says, " Well, let's see if I'm right." He walks over to one of the statues and attempts to put the rock in the heart-shaved crevice.

While the rocks themselves were easy enough to find, it took a little searching to locate a statue that was not so badly damaged that it barely resembled the figures in the pictographs.

However, after a time, Kage did finally locate one. It almost looked pitiful standing there, guardian to a long lost city and apparently weary of its post.

As the swordsman slid the rock into the crevice, it seemed a bit loose at first, but after some maneuvering, the deep grooves in the rock seemed to lock in place with something inside the statue, and a metallic thud was heard.



Suddenly, as if it had merely been taking a nap, the statue began to move with a grace that suggested its rocky outer layer was just armor over something more flexible. It appeared to stretch for a moment, and then lowered into a kneeling position, where it remained still.

Kage thinks, 'Well, that was odd, but this might be helpful....maybe.' Kage asks the awakened statue, "Where are we?"

"The Great City of Akakopolis, Master," the statue rumbled without moving.

Kage thinks, 'Akakopolis.....I've never heard of it, but if it knows, it might know about it.' Kage says, "What is the history of Akakopolis?" Making sure not to be too damanding, hoping that the golem doesn't suspect somthing.

"Akakopolis is the Empire of the Sun, Master," the golem explained matter-of-factly, showing no aggression whatsoever as it did so, "It is said that a Djinni Sultan rose the mountains to protect his followers from the wrath of his dark brother Iblis and his ghul spawn many eons ago. Here, they were to live in peace for all time, so long as they should always respect his teachings."

Kage then thinks about how helpful this golem is, and says, "What are these encyptions on the wall describing?"

"They tell the story of my people," the golem answered, "Soon after the creation of Akakopolis, the ghul invaded the valley that the Djinni Sultan had created for his followers, and so he granted to their highest priest an army of golems with which to defend against the attackers. The invasion reached only half-way across the valley before we attacked in force. The ghul were scattered back to the desert sands, and since this time, we have been the defenders of the Empire."

Kage shakes his head in understanding, as he himself has thrown himself headlong into battle many times before...., Kage suddenly snaps out of his daydream, and asks the golem, "If you golems did stop the Ghul invasion, where did eyeryone go?"

"I am unaware, Master," the golem admitted, what appeared to be sadness or even guilt lacing its tone, "When last I was summoned, the Empire was in the heyday of its former glory."

Kage says to the golem, " If that is the case, where would the Sultan be, and would you take me there?" Wondering how helpful this golem truly is.

"That is beyond my power, Master," the golem replied, "The Djinni Sultan lives high above in the Djinni Kingdom. In order to reach him, you must proceed to the Cavern of the Wyrmwraith in the east, wherein you must find the Magic Carpet of Nida'la. It will take you to him."

"You speak of an ifrit, Master," the golem corrected, "Beware the Ifriti, for the ghul are their lower brothers, and they are known to be far more powerful and cunning."

"If such an evil were unbound," the golem warned, "It would be as a plague on the desert sands, blighting all life in its path and beginning a dark dynasty that would last for three-thousand years or until it was destroyed."

Kage says blatantly, "Well, how would I go stopping an Ifrit, for I unknownly released one from its 'contract', and stole some important items from me, and I want to correct my mistake." Not sure what reaction the golem would have to this information, Kage loosens up.

"The path of your quest is unaltered, Master," the golem informed him, still no sign of aggression evident in its manner, "When you reach the Golden Palace of the Djinni Sultan, you must prove yourself worthy to wield the Shining Sword of Horus. With this weapon, you will be able to slay the ifrit."

"You are the Master," the golem replied as if it were obvious, "You are to be guarded until the last golem of Akakopolis falls."

Kage, thinks to himself, ' A army of golems, wow, that could be useful.' Kage starts looking for more intact heart stones, Kage says to the golem, "Help me activate your brethren."

Before the golem could move to obey, an abrupt scratching brought Kage's attention to two gaunt, misshapen creatures with sickly green glowing eyes and putrid fangs near the edge of the ruins. As soon as they entered, the horrible looking things began smashing every statue they could find while making their way over to the swordsman and his golem with a hauntingly high titter.



"Battle has been initiated," the golem started forward, an electric aura appearing around it as it approached the monsters, "The Master will be protected."

Kage, seeing the creatures destroying the statues, thinks to himself, 'Those must be the Guhl the golem spoke of.' As the creatures approached, Kage grip his sword for a fight, and says, "You will die by my blade!"
