Eyes and hearts

The smoke inside the temple stings your eyes. [...] The carved eyes on the walls seem to follow you, [...]. This place isn't like the rest of Polythreme's buildings. The temple has a presence, a unity, that marks it as part of something larger. [...]


Watched and weighed

The temple is dim, lit by a copper brazier [...]. Carved eyes cover the interior walls and the plain marble altar. The eyes don't move, but you are overwhelmed by the air of patient, timeless scrutiny. You dash out into the street.
