The Jackals have been finding ancient stone tablets etched in runes, as well as a large chocobo statue carved from jade, for well over a cycle now. Hidden deep in ruins, each tablet, once translated, gave them clues as to where the next one could be found and how to defeat the traps therein. Tonight, they ventured forth with a recently translated tablet to Coerthas Central Highlands.
Verdant hills and leaves of green,
Turn to cold and barren misery.
Frozen roads will lead you keen,
But ware the light of memory.
Ice steadfast in burning heat,
Gives way at your sacrifice.
Awaken fields of golden wheat,
With all death comes new life.
Glowing orbs of light emitted shocking pulses and filled their minds with haunting memories not their own, whilst an enormous ice wall needed to be gifted a bloody sacrifice before it allowed them to pass. In the end, a seed from the nearby blooming flowers brought forth treasure, but vegetation grew at an alarming rate until the Jackals were forced to retreat.
Who knows what the next entry in the Legend of the Jade Chocobo will reveal?
