With storm clouds still overhead, there are waves on the river and the ferry is rocking in the swell. Some of the donkeys do not want to get on board. After much shouting and pulling on their nose ropes, the three of you manage to get all the donkeys onto the raft. After half an hour, the ferry reaches the other side of the river though you are feeling a little unwell.

It is now possible to see the walls of Mari. Nabium-malik leads the way through the fields towards the city gates. Unfortunately it is now late in the day and the city gates have been locked for the night. You have to camp outside the walls until morning.

The enemy army is close by. Do you want to stay outside the walls or return to the friendly soldiers?
