steeltower Klima

Strong sandstorms destroy the paths to the Oasis of Klima very often. Even the Guards of the Dunes had trouble finding their way. For several months, no salt caravan has arrived from the oasis, There are rumors that entire caravans have even disappeared. The STA leaders had decided to equip an expedition to reach the oasis of Klima. Armed men lead the caravan and scout the terrain.

The caravan to the Oasis of Klima prepares for for the march at the gates of Cartassa. The leaders give final orders.

After a long march, the steel tower that some caravan leaders had reported about suddenly appears. A spooky being runs towards the caravan and lets out an incomprehensible roar.

From the office of the Gimli Ambassadress.

I am pleased to announce that a Treaty has been agreed between Gimli and Tharna for mutual defence, the fostering of cultural exchanges and the fostering of trade. As mentioned, it is defensive in nature only, and is concerned with mutual security from would be bullying aggressors. No city should be alarmed as both Tatrices assure everyone that there is no aggressive intent. The Alliance, however, reserves the right, by any means, to remove such aggressors from the face of Gor, if necessary.

Should any other city be interested in discussing such an arrangement with this Alliance, please contact the embassies of either city. We welcome all those who come in peace but will resist to the utmost tyrants and aggressors.

Lady Viktoria, Ambassadress of Gimli.

The most remote place on Gor – We marched there!

Survival in the Tahari can be very difficult, if not impossible, unless one is cognizant of the ways of the desert, unless one properly understands the intricacies of desert survival. As an initial issue, this region can be extremely hot. When the sun beats down upon the sand, the surface can attain a temperature of 175 degrees Fahrenheit. Though shaded areas can offer some respite, the temperature can still sometimes reach as high as 140 degrees. But, what many may not realize is that only a foot below the surface the temperature can drop by as much as 50 degrees.

[Leader of the caravan] …raises his hand in a Gorean salute: welcome to Cartassa, wanderers and merchants and friends of the Southern Trade Alliance: this caravan will leave for the exchange point of the Oasis of Klima very soon.

[Leader of the caravan] …recognizes a few palm trees on the horizon, it looks like there is water there, he mumbles to himself in astonishment: That has never been here or am I hallucinating? He waves to the group that someone should see if it really is water there…

[Leader of the caravan] …behind a dune he recognizes a strange thing, he raises his hand to get everyone’s attention: Stop! Armed men twith me! We need to examine that… thing… he shakes his head in disbelief: Have you seen, or heard aught, of a tower of steel?

Leader of the caravan] …stops and points with his had to the steel tower: Move! Move! We should move away. This is a very dangerious area, ignore that steel tower! I have been told that men disappeared here in the past!

Leader of the caravan] …holds his palm over his eyes again and scans the horizon, then he points straight ahead, a smile on his face: We are not far from Exchange Point from the oasis, I recognize the rocks, it’s only a day from there until you are all safe and can rest and have enough water, as they say, you don’t need to know the name of the oasis..

Leader of the caravan] …”Kaiila and other animals you may use to ride are not allowed in the oasis from many reasons,” He points to the crest of the dune that everyone is just climbing over to have.

Leader of the caravan] …We need to go to Vask, barbarians call it “South”, I recognize that area now…

taharitahari

Leader of the caravan] …you have enterered the caves and salt mines of the Oasis of Klima, caution! dont fall down…

taharitahari

The locations of the pits, such as those at Klima, are little known, and, to protect the resource, are kept secret by mine agents and merchants.
