Nabium-malik laughs when you tell him that you want to visit a temple to get protection from ghosts. However, his daughter thinks it is a good idea. She has seen many strange things in the desert and doesn't go anywhere without protective amulets.

You say you will try and catch up with them and set off for the local village where you know there is a shrine to the goddess Ishtar. Her priestess should be able to help you.

Do you go into the shrine or wait outside?
