581. “Why was I not made of stone like thee?”

581 (a). Why was I not made of stone like thee

The pass to Molavar in eastern Craglorn is guarded by sentinels of stone. Crouching lifelike yet lifeless, these unnatural figures with their great claws, goatish horns, and batlike wings are seemingly carved out of the very rocks that furnish the surrounding foothills. So pacific they sit that even the leeriest are liable to tread closer then their jitters would usually bear. And that is exactly when the gargoyle will spring into savage life and attack like a rabid werebear.

These gargoyles are but golems, atronachs if you like, typically animated by masters of the mystic arts to serve as guardians. The only question is whether these monsters were crafted to keep us out of the ruins of Molavir, or to keep something in?
