Kanesh

The shepherd is taking some of his sheep to Ashur. With a festival taking place they will be able to sell many sheep for sacrifice. The wife and grandmother are in the tent preparing a meal. They invite you to share a meal.

After the meal and several hours of walking you arrive at one of the city gates and help shepherd the flocks through. Further along a lane you come out into an open area. There are lots of people selling different things: amulets, water, soap, pottery and animals for sacrifice.

Do you stay to help sell the sheep or take part in the festival?
