A mysterious shrine with a partial view of the outside world. My all-girl party is well-prepared with beneficial status effects

No, there is no graphical error here. It's just that I've cast an invisibility spell on the party! The Egyptian-style statues seem confused by this
My all-boy party battles the recurrent Final Fantasy boss - Gilgamesh and his sidekick Enkidu, both from the ancient Sumerian epic. Looks like I don't fare too well...

It's raining over the temple of Bur-Omisace. Spectacular view!
