A labyrinth:

In the midst of your long journey, travelling through a serene forest,
you come across the entrance of a labyrinth.
The sun is warm on your back as you consider stepping down into the subterranean maze,
and the unknown encounters it holds.

A shrine stands at one side of the entrance,
straddling the shadows and sunlight. Give thanks to the god who watches over your travels.

Walk past the shrine, and forward into the dark.
