You were sent to rescue them and seek out whatever information you could on the temple. You found a temple of Rovagug, one being manipulated by some outside forces. The bodies were carted off using some magical means, as there was no way a cart could get up the slope the led out of the temple. In this temple you also discovered, through stubborn curiousity, a being called Azazel, who tethered himself to Donnie Brooks.

You have heard rumors of a hermit druid that lives there named Iah Dabo.
The Painful Steps – At the base of the Broken Giants, leading southward to The First Falls, this large body of land is a collaboration of rough, rocky, landscape covered with beautiful fauna, and large dry, dead areas, that create spooky effects over the land. This was the site of battles with Arc’El upon his original plans for taking over, and the druids claim parts of the land cursed beyond their power to cure.
