We started on the northwest rooms first. (the three that were behind the left-hand door on the left side of the courtyard) I started with the omega raptors, I assigned the three lowest ranked ones to these three rooms. We as a pack started cleaning them out. We had found some more torches, and had these lit to light up the rooms while we cleared them out.

These rooms took up most of our morning to clean. We stopped for lunch, which we ate in the courtyard. After lunch we continued for the next several hours just cleaning. The refuse and junk that we cleaned out of the three rooms, I decided would be an appropriate offering to the gods. I ordered my pack to offer the refuse as an offering on the courtyard altar, which was still mysteriously burning.

The raptors thought that it was strange to make an offering to unknown gods as of yet. I felt that sooner or later we would discover the center of this complex, and be glad that we had made offerings to this strange god. After all, this used to be a temple that both carnivores and herbivores had shared at one point. This must have been an important god to bring all these creatures together peacefully.

That afternoon, we finished cleaning out the other three rooms on the left side of the courtyard through the right-hand door. I instructed the next lowest three ranked raptors to take these rooms. I then informed them that I was going to make them a sub-pack. They were to clean out the room that had the table within it, and meet there afterwards.

I then took my next six raptors across the courtyard to the doors there and instructed them to clean out their individual rooms tomorrow. I had the whole pack meet me back in the courtyard, where we had another really good dinner before retiring for the night. No one was to sleep in a room before all the rooms were cleaned and ready for occupation.

After the six lowest raptors had cleaned out the room with the table in it, I went to go speak with them privately in that room. I told them as a sub-pack, they would have to elect a leader, keep their rooms clean, and report back to me with any further news.

I then left them to their elections and returned to the courtyard. They returned about an hour later, led by one of the larger raptors, who reported straight back to Sunshine and I. He told me his name was Bloodfang and that he was the leader of the sub-pack. I had him sit at the head of the sub-pack with all the others of this new sub-pack sitting behind him. I then elected a couple more sentinels for the night, before we all turned in.

The next morning it was decided that we would split up the next 12 raptors to continue cleaning out the rest of the rooms, while the lowest six raptors did whatever they could to help. I could tell that it wouldn't be too long before we had the courtyard areas cleaned and ready for use. Then it would be on to clean out the inner sanctum!

As we all met up in the morning, we noticed that the fire was still burning. We ate our breakfast, then headed towards the main complex. With the rooms now cleaned out and ready for use, we could spend most of the next couple of days exploring the rest of the complex.
