Hello, my name is Biming Fan. I am a ambitious twenty year old that is going to Rome to trade the last of my goods to get my wife and I money. Since I am a caravan guide, I have to convince our caravan leader ,Yul (a Sogdian man that refuses to admit he is wrong) that we are going the right way. Yul is a rough and ready guy, who will go up against anyone, no matter their weapon. Hopefully, I can get to Rome, alive.
Bandit Territory (Silk Road)
14 Weeks Later (Syrian Desert) Near Antioch (After Departure from Chang'an)
Yul, I believe you got us lost, on the map it says-
Nonsense, we are not lost, just going the long route.
Give us your goods, or else!
Lead the Caravan around the bandits, Biming! To Rome, Skip Antioch.
2 Months Later, Rome
Finally, after 6 months traveling the Silk Road, to trade my goods to become rich, I finally reached Rome!
Biming Fan finally got the money for the goods he traded, he didn't get rich, but got wealthier then he had previously been doing. During the journey to the Silk Road, 2 camels died causing the Caravan to slow down in their journey, after Yul (Caravan Leader) held off the bandits. Unfortunately, Yul did not make the rest of the trip, he was mortally wounded against the bandits, and was buried in the sands of the Syrian desert. Biming Fan safely came home to China, and lived the rest of his life happily with his wife and children (born after the journey).
