Storyboard Text

  • Come on! Get those supplies loaded up!
  • Once Upon A Time.... In a land found in West Africa, the villagers began to run low on food. They took what supplies they had, and prepared an expedition to the Kingdom of Ghana to find more resources
  • The villagers trekked many days and many nights. The vast Sahara Desert seemed endless in front of them. Already 3 people died from the sheer heat. With hope dwindling, the remaining villagers forged ahead.
  • At long last, the villagers reached the Kingdom of Ghana. Hoping to finally trade, they entered the castle, and met with the king.
  • We have finally arrived!
  • Inside the throne room, the leader of the village presented their goods in hopes of getting some natural resources in return. Instead, half of their gold was taken and they were told to leave. Confused, the leader asked for clarification. The king said they didn't have enough to be worth anything. He told them of a place to the south called Wangara, where he could trade for gold, then return and buy what they needed.
  • In the Forest of Wangara, the village leader left some salt, and then left. He learned about ths form of silent bartering from an Arab merchant in Ghana. He came back an hour later, and found there was gold next to the salt. Satisfied with the deal, the leader took the gold and left the forest.
  • That'll be 15 gold please.
  • When the leader of the village returned to the Kingdom of Ghana, he bought the supplies his village needed with his newly acquired gold. Meanwhile, the king of Ghana was thinking about the way he ran the trade route, and figured that he could support his land for years this way. And thus, Ghana began to flourish and develop more than anyone thought possible.
