Re: Temple Hill
Urrun pushes the branch through, but does not get too close and will let go if the branch is pulled, he has no intention of going through that gate.

Hograth comes back through the gate.

Re: Temple Hill
Goran wiggles a bit to try and regain some warmth back after coming back through the door.

"Nothing through there except snow and cold.  Didn't see anything dangerous there.  Since we are here, and I'm guessing you did something to open that...  Can we close it?  And are there other doors?  We should check out all of them to make sure we are not in danger."

"Hmmm, lets see. What is wrong, Urrun? They can get you far from Northport?"

He tries to rotate the statue to point to another door.

Re: Temple Hill
Goran pauses, and thinks for a minute.  His face shows a bit of confusion, and he looks up towards the ceiling, even though Hograth is manipulating the statue.  Then, he turns to face Urrun and asks him a question, in a bit of a quizzical voice.

"Do we count as your pack right now, or are you thinking of other bouda?  Or do I just not understand how you're thinking about this?  Since we are working together, I'd like to understand what you mean."

Then, he focuses his attention on what Hograth is doing, so he can open and close the doors here by himself.

Re: Temple Hill
Now you are all a pack I have, all time we Bouda travel in strong group and stay close. But pack must agree to do danger things. One Bouda do stupid, they do it alone.

Each of thr four orders features a fluted column; the simple doric columns flanked the winter gate, next clockwise is ionic, which has curling scrolls, the next, the corinthisn, has leaves, and the fourth, the composite, has both leaves and scrolls.

By turning the statue of Janus to point at it, the space between the ionic pillars starts to shimmer.

"Come on Urrun. We need to see what is through these gates."

He looks at the gate and pauses, before passing through.

Re: Temple Hill
Goran responds simply.

"Because whatever is on the other side of the gate has access to Northport."

Then, after a moment of thought, he adds "We don't know that the door can only be opened from this side.  It might be that they can come through on their own."

"Exactly right. We need to do at least basic reconnaissance before we can send teams through to be sure. That is what we are doing now."

"We don't know.  Not for sure.  But given the way the columns are decorated, it looks like we may have all 4 seasons.  As in winter, spring, summer, and fall.  By setting the portals to open, we can check them one at a time, and make sure there is no danger there."

Re: Temple Hill
AS Urrun seems at least open to the thought now, Goran pokes his head through the currently shimmering door to see what might be on the other side.
