Scarlet-robed God of Smallpox
Not nice. He prowls around in the heat seeking victims, so stay in the shade and try to spot him before he spots you. This should hopefully be quite easy as he looks just like a God of Smallpox. Note the evil red cloak and bubbling pustules of hideousness. He will probably also be smiling.SOPONA also checks on the correct observance of rituals and worship. You can probably guess what he does to you if your rituals aren't up to scratch.
