"Looks like we got something interesting to check out right nearby, some kind of shrine or something maybe? Let's get a closer look!" Lex blurts out, after several silent minutes taking in the beautiful vista they've stumbled across."And we've got a couple signs of life (or former life) in sight as well! You know a good fancy house like that always has some hidden baubles and trinkets and even a few secrets...", his voice trailing off as his eyes stay locked on the distance lake house.

It's been a bit that way for me too, turns out buying/moving takes up a fair bit of my time and I know updates aren't coming as often as I'd expected.
By neccesity the steepness of the slope forces a longer and more shallow path to the base of the far side of the hill. The circular structure is raised slightly, it's while surface occasionally spotted with moss that marrs the smooth whiteness. You get the impression that that more than anything else, this is enduring. It wears the weight of years upon it.
The irregular outer circle of stone has a similar sense of aged-ness to it, yet the makeup is of what appears to be rock rather than marble.
As Ellandryn casts out his senses, they confirm that this is not just a ritualistic set of stones or defensive barrier. Magic flows through the shapes with a low thrum of arcane life.

Why are we fighting them? I don't see any reason to unless you think they're guarding something important. I think we should just check out the ring and if the golems activate, beat a quick retreat. Golems are generally slow and if they're guarding something here they seem unlikely to pursue. Knowledge is power but I don't see any reason to pick a fight if we don't need to.

"Let sleeping, uh, golems lie, I say"There were more hills that we thought might contain the tools, right? The ones further SE? I'd like to wrap that loose end up before getting too deep into these others.

I am going to assume that Ellandryn has shared his findings with the group and move us to the planning stage. "So we've got some giant golems most likely ready to fight us if we get too close. Hmmmm.... Wizard, can you tell if these stones are one stone per golem, or they are made up of multiple stones each? Specifically I'm wondering about their legs...Maybe we can use some rope to trip them up and give us an advantage. You know what they say, the bigger they are, etc, etc."
