The party stands in a roped-off queue behind another adventuring party who are being interrogated by two guards. Beyond them is a gate with three turnstiles. Above the gate reads a sign, "Gate 6 ROAD TO ADVENTURE". Beyond the gate are three more signs, the first reads "Gate 5 ROAD TO MOROCCO", the second "GATE 7 ROAD TO PERDITION" and the final sign on a post reads "PLEASE GET HAND STAMPED FOR RE-ENTRY".
Roy: *sigh*
Guard: Did anyone other than you pack your Handy Haversack?
