Teo Ramunga is a small Huana shrine in the plains to the north-west of the Neketake Island. It contains a weathered statue of Ngati, the Huana portrayal of Ondra. Locals, including those from Neketaka, often make a pilgrimage to the shrine.
Off the path you'll notice a small shrine containing a weathered statue. You can use Survival 7 to look around, though this just confirms that no one is around.
With Religion 8, you can approach and identify the statue as that of Ngati, the Huana rendition of Ondra. It is the shape of a nude woman with the head of a monstrous fish. Along the base of the shrine is an inscription: "The surf smooths stones, but also crushes them into sand." If the check fails, you admire the craftsmanship - but cannot determine who the shrine is dedicated to.
At this point, you can either choose to kneel and pray at the shrine (given you passed the above check), or desecrate the shrine. Depending on the time of day, you may be able to do either without issues.
Kneeling before the shrine to pray, a group of Huana's approach and begin to yell at you. You can tell that they often have to drive away bandits and looters from the shrine, so they're naturally very apprehensive towards foreigners lurking about. With at least Good reputation with the Huana, one of them recognizes you as someone who is trustworthy - though the others don't all agree.
You can use Diplomacy 8, telling them that you've only come to pay respects to goddess for the safe travels of your ship.
Ask a companion to speak to them, requiring a unique check for each individual companion. Choosing yourself will give the same options. See below for a list of responses for each companion, and their checks required.
If your companion fails to convince the crowd, you will get a second chance between these options. However, you'll only be able to use the companion you selected.
Sing an Ondrite Dirge. Always succeeds (not sure what this relies on).
Threaten them to introduce them to their gods (self-check Intimidate 8). The group backs off, allowing you to use the shrine. If this fails, they will attack you.
Desecrating the shrine will give you nothing, and you'll be unable to return to it. If you have Xoti, you'll lose 3 reputation with her (Anti-Religion). During the day, the crowd will approach and will immediately attack you. This puts you in the staging area Plains.
Successfully making peace with the Huana will allow you to pray, as they join you. This will give you the buff Ngati's Blessing (+2 Constitution).
As a cipher, you can also elect to meditate rather than pray at the shrine after identifying it. This does not appear to accomplish anything, however.
This is one of the few scripted interaction locations you can return to. Returning here after successfully passing the interaction will allow you to pray as many times as you wish.
"Look, my good lads and lasses. We of the sea be having more respect for Ngati than just about anyone, aye? We don't be wanting her nursing an anger on us any more than you do. So what do you say?" Serafen steps towards the Huana, arms open wide and summons up his most gracious grin.
"We seek only to pay the gods their rightful homage. If you are the true believers you comport yourselves as, then you would not wish to prevent Ngati from receiving her prayers." Ydwin raises a pale eyebrow at you.
