Ashen Temple of Terror 8 stories
  • Ashen Temple of Terror 8 stories In the ashen wastelands there lies a temple. It is not spoken of. It is not revered. It has but one purpose - to inflict fear upon its masochistic devotees. Without fear, there is not only no courage, but no life, for fear is the deepest and strongest of all emotions.
