Overland: Chapter 4
*Reaching a New World*
They were riding on a large sandstone tile. It was commanded by Kane, who let them ride on the large tile he summoned. They all sat as the ground drifted under them, they only hovered about five feet off the ground. He could only support them all at such a height before he'd need to rest. It was difficult to travel long distances this way. Elizabeth asked him, "How much do you know about the world?" Kane didn't need to concentrate too much.
