There are several save shrines in the Forbidden Lands. Each of these small structures contains a stone tablet (shaped roughly like a PS2 memory card) which Wander may pray to in order to save his progress. One white-tailed lizard can always be found on or near each shrine. The shrine can also be climbed to provide a nice view of the lands, and to point Wander in the right direction.Even though the game can be saved after defeating colossi, these shrines serve as a good stopping place for players who simply wish to explore the world for lizards and fruit trees without fighting.
There are 25 save shrines in all. Each shrine is marked on the world map (as a green symbol) when Wander prays there. Saving the game at a shrine reveals the name of the region on the save screen. The shrines and their names are listed here from top to bottom and left to right on the game's world map.
Not all save shrines face south, there are a few that face other directions.
