Nice setting and ideas, but unpolished. Seems rushed to publication, as it has more bugs than average for the series: the talisman appears every time we examine the altar (even if it has before, duplicating the object), the parser cannot tell apart both keys if they are on the same location, and it is impossible to use ATTACH as a synonym for FASTEN, despite it being on the syntax table, as the sequence ATTA* matches ATTACK first.
