We have reached the last village on this plateau. Ahead a vast wilderness awaits. I figure it must be part of the other one we crossed a few days ago further to the west.
The locals tell us that we must plan for at least three days to pass through to the other side. They also inform us to be prepared to ward off wild animals.
As we have dealt with that type of problem before, we are unconcerned. I am concerned, however, if Stan is in pursuit. It wouldn’t do to be overtaken in such a place.
For now Elijah thinks he is probably too busy trying to pull things together after his failed meeting in the riverfront town.
