A bit of an anticlimax:
For three days, you and your crew lie under the blazing sun of the Scythera Desert, waiting for sight of the lumbering pack-animals common among caravans in this part of the world. Add 3 days to your LOG. You begin to run low on provisions and fresh water. Will you wait for just a few more days among these dunes (turn to 194), or give up on the desert and return to the Banshee (turn to 35)?
Log: 8 days.
Already the key failing of the gamebook format reveals itself - there is no "fuck it, let's attack the village instead" option. But this is the life we have chosen. 194 or 35?
