The ruins of the grand capitol are cold nowadays, the remnants of an empire once mighty and proud, now reduced to rubble and darkness.

and yet, there is hope for this empire of man, as a small group of humans have risen from the rubble, to build their empire anew.

a group of them go out searching and manage to find a small stockpile of rusty weaponry that is just better than rocks. They also find some roots and berries they think to be edible, and return to the ruined marketplace that they are camping in.

Okay, so the fishing boat is sent out, with two men, who at first have difficulty controlling it, but soon learn how to effectively use the sails.
they begin fishing with some nets found aboard, and manage to catch enough fish to last a turn.

The scouts leave the ruins, and check the lands outside. The city is situated in a large plains filled with cows, to the north is the ocean, however you can see some hilly forest about a days sail away, to the east is more hilly forest. to the south there are mountains with forested valleys, and to the west there is a large amount of grassy shrub land, leading to the ocean.

The men are just preparing to return to the city when in the distance they spot moving shapes, similar to humans but massively tall.

The rich houses around the palace are all prepared for the giants to inhabit, there are enough for about 10 giants, which is all you assume will join you.

The cows are driven into an old stable near the palace, and the sick are killed, leaving you with 5 cows marked with suns, one of whom is a bull that took a while to get inside.
