A location found only in SH:C Director's Cut.
It is a limited one-time only dungeon.
The player takes control of Nicolai, Lenny and Veronica as they make their way through the temple.
The player must descend through the temple, opening door switches,couple of doors and navigate through through a maze of gates which open only one way.
It is here that Nicolai makes his pact with the Demon Astaroth.
Note: What is found in the dungeon does not transfer over to the main party. Nicolai, Lenny and Veronica also begin the dungeon with a small cache of restorative items.
The temple is named for the the serpent (Heb. נחש, "nakhásh") that tempts Eve to eat the Forbidden fruit in the Bible, a name shared also by an extinct genus of snakes.
