The journey on to Sippar will be dangerous. The Babylonian king Hammurabi is marching south and capturing many of the cities close to Uruk. You are advised to take the desert route.

Carrying skins of water, you join a caravan of a few donkeys which will attempt to avoid the main routes. You set off into the desert. You see ostriches and herds of gazelle in the distance and occasionally hear the roar of a lion.

After a few hours you meet a band of hunters. You share some food and water and they invite you to join their expedition for gazelle.

Do you stay with the hunters or go on to Sippar with the caravan?
