Jungle of Lost Souls: Curses!
February 22, 2011
The water imparts The Curse of Weakness, cutting your Strength in half. The fountain water then drains away until empty. You leave the temple and return to exploring the city.
You approach a temple door of corroded bronze, part of which lies on the floor, almost buried by mud, rank grass, and vines. Your party picks its way over the threshold and looks around the interior. It is lichen-stained; the ancient columns sag with the weight of centuries and are garlanded with dry, brown creepers. A humid, sickly-sweet jungle breeze breathes in through the gaping windows, whose shutters have been long-lost through the storms of time. A jaguar-headed idol sits menacingly at the far end of the chamber, camouflaged by shadows and leafy vines.
Worship the jaguar god? Or simply search here for loot?
