Head south-west to the purple-yellow tent and talk to Rashid the Operator inside. Ask him about the feud and he will tell you that those thieving Bandits are the problem. Say to him the Menaphites are also involved in unsavory behavior, which he will eventually admit. However, he will tell you that the Bandits started the feud by robbing one of their camels.

  6. Head a bit south to the camel shop and ask Sami the Camel Man for the price of the 2 camels outside. He will however tell you that those are not for sale but that he is expecting the arrival of 2 more camels. Ask him how much he wants for them and offer to take them for free, an offer which he will deny. Talk to him again and offer him 1000 Coins.
