Professor History of Teaser Town, was in the middle of a school day, and teaching his students about Egyptian times. Not a few hours later did he think up an idea.

He decided to take a field trip to find the lost temple of Tutankhamen.

The next day, the arrangements were made, and the group was out on a desert and searching for something, anything that would lead them there. One of the kids soon found a stone that they thought was the answer to where the lost temple is.

The stone had a bunch of clues written on it, a Word Temple decipher Professor History soon found out.

A Word Temple decipher, is a listing of clues that correspond to words. These words will make a temple, or triangle (starting with a 1 letter word) by adding one letter to the next word, and rearranging the letters to make a new word. The clues do not have to be in the same order as the temple is shaped.
