There has been a severe drought since the totems of the Kumeyaay tribe were stolen. The sheriff caught the thief, but kept the totems for himself. The Shaman sent messengers to reclaim their rightful possession. Covering up his own motives, the sheriff accused them of collusion and locked them up in his office. Now, he is out for lunch in the saloon and will return in an hour. This is a great opportunity. The messengers have to get out of the cell, retrieve the totems and escape.
