Chutes Without Ladders

Some small children are heard giggling with glee, when to everyone's astonishment, a handful of toddlers shoot out of the bushes and splash into the hot springs! Still giggling, one of the children shouts: "Wanna do the slide again!" The Villagers realize that it may take a very long time to find a way back to the children's village, because there are many treacherous features on Isola that isolate villages from one another. All they can do for now is take care of these children.

News From Another Tribe (Respected Master)

A respected master from another tribe has decided to join the expedition to this part of the island. He brings news that the fabled golden child from the south shore has gone missing. The newcomer is welcomed to the tribe.
