“Praise the Sun!” the lizardman priest said, raising his arms to welcome the dawn.
The adventurers looked down from their cage, wondering if the monstrous humanoids would eat them raw or cook them first.
Adulations complete, the priest turned and addressed the guards. “Bring the humans down.”

When they reached the bottom, the priest turned to the assembled congregation of lizardmen. They stood as one and stalked towards the adventurers.
