Description:


    Moonlight illuminates stone temple ruins deep in the jungle. Three sculpted jaguars, carved from stone, come to life and dance in the moonlight, creating an entrance to the Mayan underworld. In a subterranean vault beneath the ruins, a micro-opera is performed by two peculiarLards of the Night and a serpentine Dragon in counterpart to an aria by a lovely Dragan Lady. In the final sequence, a skeletal Death God performs a comical but chilling dance of death, and our players subside into stone once again.
