Perhaps the original reason for the temple in the area has been lost,
it now does as it pleases. If the temple does not find it's way, then it
may get
a visitation from the goddess.

As for your idea of an alliance in the area, I feel it would be doomed
to failure.
If the Khinasi regents combined they should be able to destroy the
serpent (eventually)
, however there are a lot of Awnsheilin (-sp) in the area and I do not
they would let themselves be picked off one by one. The bad guys in the
area are much
more powerful, and it is only the in-fighting that stops them from
taking over. I
believe that an alliance would be a catalyst for the bad guys to
partition up the
south east corner of Khinasi.

This doesn't seems to relate to the Star Goddess any more. Time for a
thread change?
