Travel in the Eastern Satrap
To travel in the Eastern Satrap is different altogether than in the Broken Kingdom. The heat means that horses die within weeks from exhaustion and dehydration, and so they look to the local creatures as mounts. Crodlu’s; bird like creatures with a tenacious spirit and incredible endurance are a common method of travel for the common folk and Dune Traders, though the richer citizens and slavers travel on Driks. Driks are huge turtle-like creatures with a huge carapace to which a howdah can be attached, and are huge mobile palaces for the richest elite. When attacked, a Drik is nigh on indestructible, its hard shell and tough skin being very hard to pierce, and the sheer size of the animal is usually a deterrent for all would-be attackers.
