I walked into the preserved Altar Room where people would make sacrifices to the gods. I stepped towards the altar, curious as to what secrets it held. I noticed Greek text on the side of the altar. I looked at what it said: 'Within the altar a secret holds. When these words are read, it unfolds'.
I realised what I had done; light filled the room as a strange sceptre rose from the ashes. Everything started to crumble, beasts formed in the shadows. Hellhounds, Drakons, the Nemean Lion, the Hydra!
I had doomed the entire world!
