I arrived this morning back at the mountain base camp.
The Sheik sent some supplies with me for Carp's Cave. They had been running low on scorpions and needed some more. He also sent some nice lizards. Maybe they can create a dish with them. I will be looking forward to whatever dish they can make from them.
The Sheik requested that I get him some casks of that fine beverage that Carp's is famous for. I place an order for some and asked that they send the casks that they distill very strong since the Sheik likes his drink that way.
I also asked that they include some of that fine cheese they make, along with anything else they think the Sheik and his men might like.
After concluding my business there, I came on up the mountain to pay my respects to the caretakers of the Cave of Rememberance. I delivered the things that they had requested for their duties there.
I then went to the Cave of Slumber, where The Old Goat and those that went before her rest. I honored each of them and thanked them for the many years of leadership and service each had given.
I will rest for a few hours then return to Carp's Cave for a nice bowl of Viper Stew and a few Scorpion Skewers. They did say that they were working on a new dish that they would have a sample of for me when I came in to eat. I am wondering what dish they have created. I am sure it will be as good as all the rest.
I was informed that a message had arrived for me from the desert. One of the Oasis has been ransacked and the supplies destroyed. I dispatched a rider to request the Sheik meet me there with some riders. I will load some more supplies to replace what was destroyed and pack them along with what I am taking for the Sheik.
I will try to track down whoever destroyed the rest stop at the Oasis.
I will leave at daybreak with the supply caravan.
Trave strong and safely my fellow travelers. Watch for the traps that Ol' Nic and his crew might have laid for you.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
