In the capital, the Currency Board's main compound has a small temple dedicated to a local god. The temple is protected by the wooden statues of four guardsmen. The coppersmiths working at the Currency Board would regularly worship at the temple, since they all lived in the compound.
One night it happened that the younger men among the team had an identical nightmare. They dreamed that they were sodomized but despite the nausea and pain were unable to shout or move. It was as if their feet and hands had been bound. When they woke the next morning and rubbed their sore anuses, each discovered his own to be caked with a black mud.
This pattern continued for over a month and the coppersmiths were at a loss to know who or what was taking advantage of them.
Eventually, one of the victims, while making an offering at the temple, recognized the face of one of the wooden guards as that of the rapist. He promptly informed the others and they reported it to the magistrate. The feet of this wooden statue were then nailed down as a punishment and precaution. After this, the strange nightly visits ceased.
