[ Dacia. Winter, 219 B.C. ]

The wooden wheels splattered up mud as the small convoy made its way on the narrow road through the forest.

Cotiso, a sixty-four-year-old traveling merchant couldn’t usually afford to hire this many guards to protect his cargo. Because of the disturbing news he had heard about the wolves and bandit attacks in these parts, Cotiso had almost abandoned his plan to continue on his way to Panonni this year.

He’d been on the verge of turning back home for the winter but, luckily, he had found a couple of merchants heading in the same direction. They decided to combine their convoys together, hire more guards and share the costs.
