Dangerous Salt Trade

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2022

Oasis of Klima

Announcement: Salt sale for everyone for just one day! (29th of October) Location: Exchange Point of the Oasis of Klima (NOT Klima itself). Start: Gates of the Silver Stone Desert Oasis

Not all of you will be able to find the path to Klima or to reach the exchange point! It will be extremely dangerous! All men should be armed! Female merchants should ask for the protectoon of men.

All merchants of Gor welcome! You will be able to buy a reasonable amount of authentic red and yellow salt from Klima and a certificate. To get to the exchange point you will have to find persons who have been in Klima before. Ask the people you will meet near the gates!

Very few Goreans know the way to the Oasis of Klima. Anyone who draws maps of the desert will be killed. The Salt Ubar and his warriors (Guards of the Dunes) control the trade in salt from Klima. Their names are not known, they are always veiled or wear a mask.

Oasis of Klima

Many Goreans from all regions gathered at the gates of the Oasis of Silver Stones. The caravan marched at night because the temperature in the desert is almost unbearable during the day. Some masked warriors seemed to know the way, the others joined them. The Tahari is dangerous, often you can see bleached bones of animals or people.

Oasis of Klima

A few experienced STA merchants had marched to the Exchange Point days beforehand and were preparing to sell salt.

According to the rumors spread by the caravan leaders, the caravan encountered three Kurii who attacked immediately. The men defended themselves, some of them taking a detour to lead the women and the kaiila to a safer route. The Kurii were repelled. There were a few injured, but the men finally arrived at the Exchange Point of the Oasis of 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.

Kargash

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] …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!
