A Chittiki's First Caravan
The Sandrunner Folk of the Chittiki like to celebrate. They have feasts to mark the embarkations of their caravans across the desert from the Warrens to the enclave of the Elves. They have feasts that mark the successful returns of these caravans - regardless of the profits or losses achieved. Families have feasts to celebrate the arrivals of new litters, and feasts to send off children who decide find their fortune somewhere other than the desert routes of the Sandrunners. But of all these, feasts, the one every Sandrunner remembers is the feast that marks the completion of their First Caravan - their passage from childhood to adulthood within the Sandrunner society.
