Step 4: The Second Thicket
This southern thicket isn't quite as muddy as the other one, and while the trees of the other thicket were mostly gnarled creating a wooden prison, this one actually has a strong canopy of leaves above it. Again, beams of sunlight stream into the grove.
As the group enters the thicket and starts exploring, they encounter one major difference from the other thicket right away: in a small clearing in the center of the thicket, surrounded by a bed of fallen leaves, is a wooden chest, sitting partially buried in the ground!
This would probably be seen by the first two rows of the formation more or less simultaneously. But everyone else would probably be able to see it shortly after, Hanzo and Rowan just happen to be the ones who would see it first. The chest is probably 1/4 buried in the ground, one of the back corners is sunk.
