The Deadly Sinners


After your narrow escape from the Gorgon, you now have two Stars of Palestine! But which is the real one?



You enter a room with three lost souls. One is chained to a rack, stretched painfully by two heavy sacks of gold. One sits disconsolately before a mirror, horribly disfigured. One wanders about, trying to remove a multitude of knives stuck in his back. Your guide explains that these souls were laid low by their greed, vanity, and deceit. The deceiful soul offers a riddle explaining which of the gems is the true Star of Palestine, but the guide decries his advice. Deceit claims repentance, but becomes angered at the servant. Grabbing a knife from his back, he attacks you, driving you from the room.
