(Henry and Jasuri) Walking through the streets, you once again are greeted with the fantastic colors of the city. Flowers, green plants, and vines grow everywhere, seeming to spring out of the building's stones themselves. These buildings are richly decorated with paint, ivy, and vivid flowers. Some houses are painted in symmetrical, geometric patterns of straight lines and sharp angles, while others portray animals, monsters, landscapes, and heroes in a stylized manner unique to Chult. When you eventually catch a glimpse of the Temple, it is as beautiful as the city surrounding it. The tiled roof of its great dome resembles an unblinking eye, staring skyward, and it's walls are crafted from magnificently carved wooden planks and beams. As you arrive, Zitembe points you towards the wide oak doors and opens them for you. "Welcome to the great Temple of Savras."
Scamper follows along as well, following the only people she knows and hasn't had an unpleasant interaction with... yet (Jasuri and Zitembe). She marvels at everything and when they arrive at the Temple of Savras she let's out an audible,
It might be the most beautiful thing she's ever seen (she hasn't seen a lot so it's not competing with much).
"I have brought you here because I will be performing an ancient ritual. During this ritual, my mind will be open to Savras, and I will receive powerful visions. I will describe what I see to you as best as I can. I am an old man, and I cannot do this more than once a day, so please do not interrupt my ceremony." He leads you up the stairs to a small carpeted room. After ushering you inside, he takes hold of a spherical holy symbol and sits down. He then chants something in a language you do not recognize, and his eyes go blank. A faint light begins to glow in the center of the orb he is holding
After a short moment of silence, Zitembe speaks "I see.....a jungle city, far, far to the south. It is enclosed by tall cliffs and infested with snakes. Inside, I see a black obelisk, draped in vines, and a dark, dark force." After this, Zitembe puts down the orb and rises to his feet. "I do not dare to peer any deeper than that, as my mind is highly open to suggestion during the ritual. This Soulmonger, it is a very evil force indeed. It needs to be stopped. Although the jungles may be perilous, I could not urge you more to seek out this city and whatever it contains.
"I could do this from any place, yes, but only if it were a very calm place. If I am interrupted, my visions are lost. I cannot, however, be your guide. I am much too old for that. If you need a good guide, the Market Ward is a good place to look. You said you were going to the Thundering Lizard? If you go there, ask Stream what she knows about guides. Now, unless you need anything else, I'll be off." He begins to walk away.
Gimdir is mightily confused. "Let me be getting this straight. We be telling you we be seeking a guide to help us find this soul thing so we be destroying it. You tell us 'no no' be coming with me and you be bringing us here. Now you be telling us to go where we be going already to be finding a guide? Why?"
Henry stands in the background as the ceremony goes on, arms crossed and a bored look on his face, looking like he isnt really paying any attention. But if anyone pays close attention to him, (I assume everyone is focused on the priest), they will notice his eyes narrow as the priest mentions a jungle city of snakes.
History check, to see if this jungle city of snakes rings any bells: 13
Scamper makes a motion as if she is trying to hold Jasuri's hand, but then thinks better of it and tries to play it off as if she were wiping her hands on her tabard. She's excited at the prospect of having made a new friend.
