The group wakes up in the morning, each having experienced an odd dream. The break camp and head out on the road again. They are unopposed for the entire day, and cover much ground. During the long, uninterupted trek, they get to talking. Liza: So does anyone have a plan how we're going to even get in to Thebes? I would imagine its pretty heavilly guarded... CG: Well, me and Mara can go in in disguise. GM: Very well. I'll go in my usual way. Liza, Anthony, however you two want to do this is fine. Go in my way, go in disguised with CivGeneral and Mara, or find your own method. What matters is that we get into the city. Mara: And what is your way, Grandmaster? GM: The same way I got into your palace. Walk right in, and give the guards a good reason not to get in your way. Mara: Define "good reason." GM: Oh, staying alive for instance. Like I've always said, you can get farther with a sword and a smile than you can with just a smile. CG: But what if there are too many of them? Like in Mara's dream? Or if you don't scare them. GM: Don't worry. If it comes to it, I'll force my way in with steel alone. So what are you two going to do? Anthony: I think I'll go in disguise with CivGeneral. Liza? Liza: I'm just a young girl wandering through the countryside. The guards will let me in. GM: Very well. The plan is set. By this time tomorrow, we will be at the gates of Thebes. Twenty-four hours after that, the war will be over. Anthony: I'm not so sure. You saw in that ambush before, the Egyptian soldiers are fanatics. They'll fight even if we make peace. What if this whole thing doesn't work? GM: That is a strong possibility. If this fails, the war will continue, and we will all certainly die. But what if it doesn't fail? What if tomorrow the war could be over? Isn't that worth trying for? Isn't that worth dying for? Liza: Yes, you're right. We have to end this war. We have to get to Thebes and we have to do all we can. Come on, let's hurry up. And so they continue on at a faster pace towards the Capital of Egypt, and a possible end to the Egypto-Fanatican War.
