So far our troubles have been shifting land and animal and human predators. It really hasn’t been easy. I know we are getting closer to safety. The tag of that magnetic pole in my blood is too strong to ignore. It presses upon me like a beacon of safety flashing just behind my eyes. But we’re not clear of danger just yet.
As we travel further ahead we begin to smell something burning. Shortly, we see smoke and come across a large burnt area. The fires have largely died down but I can still see glowing embers here and there. I know that the only way forward is through here. We will just have to be careful where we step.
Quest: Cross the plain.
Optional subquest: I suggest we build a rope bridge across one of the widest ravines. The fissures here feel more permanent. The energy that went into creating them spent. If we create a rope bridge it will make the crossing for everyone coming here that much easier. We need to collect sufficient vines and wood and then cord and tie everything together. It’s going to be hard, upper body work so I put it to the group to decide what they want to do. We might end up saving someone’s life.
