Terriniget Dead, now question...
My group infiltrated the main entrance last night and successfully killed everyone. Terriniget tried to flee, but the hasted members caught up with him in area 13, where the other 2 troglodite guards were. Most of the party began wrenching their guts out but not before the cler4ic casted silence on Terriniget. The two not puking were able to kill the remaining trogs. Now they are holing up in the main complex to loot and camp.

Here's my question: I don't have the book with me, but weren't those two guards working for the Earth Temple? What will be the reaction of the temple now that their guards are dead? I'm sure they will be on alert and prepared for battle. Do you think they will organize a group to attack the party? Or do you think they will set up an impenetrable defense instead?

Nope, those are Terrenygit's guards. They tolerate the Earth Temple, because they're all Trogs, but they're loyal to Terrenygit, who is under strict instructions from the Outer Fane not to get too cozy with the Earth Temple.

Having said that, the Earth Temple might be none too happy to find the trogs murdered. I'd say they'd go to the heightened alert level described in the module, and if they get the chance to speak with dead to find out who killed them, they'd attack the party on sight, but no change beyond that.

The trogs obey commands from Terrenygit, but I'd say they were Earth Temple guards. The module also specifically mentions that if under attack they go warn their brethren. In any case, msherman's got a good idea in putting the Earth Temple on heightened alert. They might bolster the area with two warrior trogs, and chances are the Swordmaster, Miikolak, and the earth elemental would patrol. In fact, if you allow the EE to have a burrowing ability similar to xorns, it would be ideal for it to scout the intruders.

If they do and see the party resting after an obvious battle and destruction of the main gate, it's possible that Uskathoth would send in, say, Snearak to parley with the intruders to find out their motivations, maybe getting them to work with the Earth Temple. If the parley fails, then he would take appropriate actions such as remaining on heightened alert until the group leaves, or even outright setting up defenses, such as stoneshapes to block the passages, etc.

I will definitely put them on alert. The patrols are a good idea. I assume by EE, you were talking about an earth elemental. It's been awhile since I looked at the Earth Temples forces, so I don't remember what's there. Good ideas though. I don't think they will be close enough to the temple for a patrol to detect them, and I don't think a patrol would go as far out as the main entrance. Snearek is a great idea. I could get some good roleplaying out of him. Now I have to think about what the Earth Temple would want from the group. The group would be obviously powerful in the eyes of the temple because they took out the force at the entrance. However, they would still see themselves as far superior to the party. Isn't the Earth Temple still reeling from a whoopin' by the Fire Temple? Perhaps they would try to recruit them to attack one of the other temples.
