Standing to one side of the track you watch the carts trundle past. It is getting hot now and you begin to feel thirsty. You decide to make your way to the river to take a drink. As you get closer you see several rafts being loaded with sacks of grain. You reach the river and, filling your cupped hands with water, take a long drink. A wealthy merchant called Damqi-ilishu shouts to you. He asks if you will help. You agree and help drag the heavy sacks. One man tells you they are taking the goods to the lagoons. You have the chance to go with them.

Do you go with the raft or run back to the carts?
