In the Eye of Sebek room, I understand how the trap works and how the players are supposed to use the hieroglyphics to figure out the correct path through the tiles, but ... how do they know where to start? The gems describe the relative direction of the next step, but it's not clear to me where the players learn that the first step should be on middle owl.

Any help would be welcome.

I let my players find some notes from the Imperial archaeologists when they infiltrated the camp that identified the starting point for them (along with a request for some more shock troopers as they had run out of the ones assigned to assist...)

Deciding on a start piece is part of the puzzle. If they’ve figured out the relationship of the symbols on the wall to the floor symbols, they should be able to plan a route before stepping on any tiles. There are only two spots where the front row of tiles leads deeper into the room; the rest point back to the entrance or cut sideways.
