Yay, the Arabic text is all connected together this time :)

I think it says:
أليس هذا الذهب، هناك حق؟
which Google translates as "Is not this gold, right there?" (perhaps "Isn't that gold, right there?")

and:
قلت لك ذلك
which Google translates as "I told you so"

So are we going to get some kind of bizarre Rambo parody in this one?

What good was he expecting a years-old map to be in a place that changes its layout with every visit?

Then again, we've already established that he isn't exactly genre savvy.

Turns out the temple interior is procedurally generated.

Tough luck, Thomas, you walked into a bad instance.

Thomas has only mentioned looking for gold, which is currently quoted at $1,277.60/oz. Gold is heavy, and there is only so much that He and Sophia can carry, it would make more sense for him to grab whatever other piles of coins he's already passed rather than going deeper into the temple. So unless he's looking for gems or something with a better value to weight ratio, what does he think could be in the marked room on the map?

Also, what is that room, Pete's old chamber?

Walking through the temple bold;
leaving behind a pile of… gold -
Thomas has learned the Camel’s rap
but, not yet, how to read the map.
He’s led the way from the room.
Down the passageway. Zoom.
Now he’s faced with a blank
and an architect of chaos to ‘thank’
There has to be a trick here;
step on a square, it will appear.
Who will get their wildest desire
and who will rot in purgatorys’ final.

And here i thought the map just lead to the temple.

I would love the twist here being you have to have a hat or be a pet to see what's in the room, but Thomas usually is late to the punch.

Wait, isn't this the map that the Ferrets had to where Milton's missing billions were? Why would it be a map of the temple?

Thomas has a hat and the camel is an animal.

He needs a wig to pass for Geraldo.

I have a feeling there is a reality distortion field specific to the humans. As a result, all the wonders the pets are experiencing are off-limits to naughty humans like Thomas.

Too bad Geraldo didn't have Sophie around to advise him. Ah, well, greed is almost a force of nature.
Dumb Question #248 - is Sophie a "pet" or, like the horses and cows at the Linburg farm, a work animal? Would that give her an aura in the temple than our Cat-Dog warriors?

Touche, but I'm not sure if a desert cap counts, honestly. As for Sofia, i'm wondering if she's going to pull the old "uninteresting interesting site" routine.

It's a kefiyyeh, technically, but it works as well as a hat except what power it confers eludes me. It does obscure Thomas's identity (although Fox previously spotted him and Sophie earlier), and maybe helps Sophie feel a bit more secure.

The princess, she's HERE!? (I've been watching Star Wars.)

It lets him play Darude's Sandstorm?
..........
My guess is that this is where he WOULD meet Pete, if Pete wasn't banned from the area. Perhaps this is where the Mana is? (Actually, I think the Mana was released into the Temple when Zach pushed the button. Since Zach wasn't eligible to receive the Mana, the Mana had to go somewhere, so it was absorbed by the Temple itself. That would explain how the Temple can do the magic stuff.)

A prop communicator clipped to an ear counts, bro.

I was also thinking Sheik from Zelda but "he" doesn't wear a keffiyeh.

Now that you're healthy, you can't give up about searching the gold. I can relate that. ;) Good that Thomas really knows Arab. :) Yeah, that map is awaiting since long time. So, that's the correct room, but there's no gold in it? If you say so, means that you were expecting that, Sofia. :P Doesn't seem that someone else already took all the gold, let's see where it is now...

Poor Sophie, your loyalty is inspiring ... Or maybe you've been out of the sun and torrid heat too long.
