There are mainly women outside the shrine. You ask them where the priestess of Ishtar can be found and they tell you she is inside the shrine. A few days ago enemy soldiers had stolen some of the villagers' sheep and they are praying to the warrior goddess to help them get the sheep back.

Some of the villagers discuss your problem. They think the only way to protect yourself from ghosts is to carry a clay model of an ugallu demon. There is a seller of amulets in the village. Perhaps he will have ugallu figures.

Do you go to the amulet-seller or go on talking to the villagers?
