of Hel Churl By Air) The river flows from the south through narrow ravines between
high peaks. Ahead you can see a small village beside the river. The village consists of
five buildings and a dock. At the dock is a small group of people. Some of them appear to
be boarding the barge. Further upstream is a fortified wall crossing the entire valley.
The fields beyond the wall are full of people. Beyond that is a strange city. The barge
casts off from the dock and begins to travel down stream. Flying to the south west is a
six winged blip.
(Approaching Port of Hel Churl By Land) The narrow
road along the river bank passes by a dock. Tied to the dock are three barges. Each barge
is equipped with oars. Two of the barges are open and empty. The third is being loaded
with slaves. 11= are ten more slaves to be loaded and the barge looks as if it is ready to
sail. There are four buildings and a warehouse near the dock. Standing near the boat a
small group of men, some dressed in officials clothes, stand watching the proceedings. As
you approach, the last of the slaves is loaded and the crew stand ready to cast off. A man
hands over some papers to the official and walks over to the barge. He shouts some orders
and they push off into the river's stream. The official then goes to one building while
the guards go to another. Flying to the south west is a six winged blip.
