Sands of Destiny
Story So Far
Our adventure begins in the tablelands, an expanse of wastelands from the Stormclaw Mountains in the east to the Ringing Mountains in the west. In the slave markets of Tyr, the massive city-state, a large group of slaves are purchased for hard labor out in the desert of the Alluvial Sand Wastes. It is here where you first meet Kalgaren the slave master purchasing you for the work. He is tall for a Mul, and characteristically stern and quiet, he pays the merchant for you and brings you and the others to a group being chained to a couple of wagons. He tells you that you are being purchased for hard labor, and that you may not return from the wastes. He hands you a piece of dry bread and returns to the markets for more workers.
Its been two days since then, pulling the wagons through the wastes for most of the day, stopping only for as much rest as absolutely necessary. You headed west, following the road out of Tyr and into the Alluvial Wastes. Then the caravan turned north along a shabby, roughly marked road, large portions of it obscured and obstructed by the constantly changing desert. As the burning red sun rises into the sky on the third day your chains are re-attached to the yoke of the wagon, and the caravan sets in motion.
