“There’s an Isthmus further on, we can cross there and make our way into Aleran.” Commander Urch announced.
“Well, great… How long will that take us?” Fen the rouge asked.
“Three days, if we leave now.”
“That’s too long, we won’t be able to get to the palace in time for the carnival. A ship is the only way.”
“Now Fen, calm down, we’ll make it. But the isthmus is our only chance, after all you just got us thrown off the only ship to the capital of Aleran.”
With that the party turned away from the docks and started making way for the isthmus. Fen watched them leave for a moment, before quickly chasing after them.
