At last you pass through the huge gates of the city. You help lead the slow-walking oxen through the busy streets. At the end of the road you can see the walls of the palace. The grain is to be unloaded at one of the side storehouses. The cart driver shouts warnings to the people walking in the street. One woman, with a jar of water on her head, has to jump aside as the solid wheels of the cart come close to her.

At the side door to the palace an official is waiting. He inspects the grain. He chooses ten of the sacks and you help carry them inside the building. You find yourself in a large courtyard. It has been swept clean and is very unlike the dusty, dirty streets of the city.

Do you stay with the official or go home?
