You find Nabium-malik's donkeys waiting. The bags tied to the donkeys are packed full.

A young girl stands with the donkeys. Nabium-malik introduces her as his daughter.

All three of you lead the donkeys along the track beside the river heading north.

Nabium-malik begins to tell you his favourite ghost story. Soldiers who died in battle and were not buried came back as ghosts. They caused illness. He says that the ghosts lived in the desert ready to attack merchants.

You are scared. Do you go on, or visit a temple to get protection from ghosts?
