Ahead in the woods NAME saw a light glowing between the leaves. It seemed to beckon him/her forward. When he/she reached the light he/she found him/herself in a clearing with an ancient ruin -- a worn and overgrown pyramid.
At the end of a sloped hallway was a poorly lit chamber. A few small windows let light in through partially occluded glass. Half the floor was a pool of water, the light playing across the rippling surface. A young woman/man bathing in the pool noticed NAME as he/she entered the room.
When NAME exited the temple and looked around he/she was shocked to see that there was nothing there. The entire place seemed to have vanished into thin air! He/She was sure to feed the rumor of the mysterious Hidden Shrine of Nahautl with his/her story.
Story Encounter Text
NAME found an open courtyard in the center of the temple. After the dark corridors, the courtyard's bright light nearly blinded NAME. It took a few moments before she/he realized an axe-wielding barbarian was towering above her/him. The barbarian swung his axe in an arc, aiming directly for NAME's face.
NAME couldn't entirely avoid the bone-crushing blow, and while his femur was not shattered, his leg was badly injured. NAME limped out of the courtyard down a new passageway, too small for the very tall man to follow. The skeleton on the floor in that passage, lying among scattered coins, was not a good omen.

Final Encounter Text
The man/woman beckoned NAME into the pool and, as he/she did so, it became quite apparent what might take place there between them. It was equally apparent that this man/woman was using his/her charms to get the better of NAME but she/he was going to turn the tables on this suave seducer/seductress.
A battle of charms ensued, with winks, flirting, careful placement of hands, and whispered words. NAME easily bested the charmer in this contest and came out of the situation with more treasure and better memories than she/he had gone in with.
A battle of charms ensued, with winks, flirting, careful placement of hands, and whispered words. It seemed to be going well until NAME felt a dagger slide between his/her ribs. The seducer laughed and fled the room. Looking around NAME spotted the skeletons of a few other adventures under an oak table. At least there was some loot to take back along with a small scar.
