And now the payoff:

You dig.
You find a magic apple!
You place it on the ground and wait.
After a while a Lion wonders into view. It ignores you totally and eats some of the apple. A noise
startles you and you look behind you. When you look back both apple and creature have gone.
Thinking back, you remember your mother telling you that you were born under the sign of the Lion!
You lose a Magic Compass.

Totems

At the Lion Totem:

You read the inscription.
It tells of 24 mighty magical totems built by some great race or something...
blah blah blah. The important bit seems to be that each totem is connected to another
and those who follow and enforce the connections can gain great power

Lion-> Roc (Daemonic Knife) -> Air Dragon (Power Crystal) -> Sparrow (Lemon) -> Bull (7 Iron) -> GNU (Tee) -> Toad (Giant Snowball) -> Worm (Lime) -> Triffid (Daemonic Sword) -> Sylph (Issue) -> Crocodile (Daemonic Dagger) -> Fire Dragon (Coconut) -> Water Dragon (Rodden Berry) -> Eagle (5 Iron) -> Gnome (Pomegranate) -> Thunderbird (Putter) -> Undine (Can of Wyrms) -> Phoenix (Daemonic Letter Opener) -> Angel (4 Iron) -> Earth Dragon (Tribble) -> Salamander (Copy of Battlefield Earth) -> Glow Worm (Rattle) -> Penguin (Vowel) -> Firefox (Consonant) -> Lion (3 Iron)

Your make the connection!
You lose a 3 Iron.
Ancient forces increase your strength. (+5 max AP)
You have connected all 24 totems! You've earned 30 seconds apdelay. Go you!
