The Sheik told me that he and some of his men would watch to be sure none Nic's men would dig out of the buried chamber. He said that they would deal with them if they were able to do so.
I don't expect that they will be able to survive long enough to dig out from under twelve feet of sand as it shifts as they dig.
I went back and picked up the trail of the camel train and headed out to catch up to it.
I expect that some of the other oasis will need some repairs as well as needing restocked.
I am pretty sure that I will find them at the next oasis.
Keep traveling my friends and keep a sharp lookout.
Nic and his goons could be anywhere along the trail and very well could have set traps for you.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
