You walk down the path through the woods.
As you walk further the path starts to change to roughly set worn slabs of stone, possibly placed here over time by the people who often walk this path, or by some nearby villagers. Birds continue to sound overhead and you hear the occasional bird flying from tree to tree.
To the east you can hear the sound of rushing water and the stone slab path continues that way. To the south you can see another clear muddy path heading off into the woods and westwards leads deeper into the woods. Which way do you want to go?
You can go west, east or south.
