In SLASH'EM, the Temple of Moloch is accessed by a stairway down located between levels 32 and 35.

As the name implies, the entire level (except for the stair room and treasure room) is a temple dedicated to Moloch; the altar is marked and attended by four priests of Moloch.

There are two spiked pits in the stair room. The X mark indicates a burned message reading "Those Not of Moloch, Begone!".

The niches on the sides of the temple each contain a statue gargoyle, and the main area contains a bone devil, a babau, a barbed devil, a vrock, a horned devil, a hezrou, and 21 random Z. Be cautious when attacking the priests of Moloch, as Moloch responds with divine lightning bolts, potentially blinding you even if you have reflection/lightning resistance.

The room on the far right contains nine piles of treasure, each composed of a chest, a wax candle, a random amount of gold, and three random objects.
