Walking closer you see that the light is coming from a feeble hut sat atop a dry spot. It’s architecture obviously designed practically with the rising and falling water in mind. There are two windows on the side facing you. You can see from the dancing shadows that the light is coming from a roaring fire. There is a single plank wood door on this side of the dwelling.
Walking Closer you see now that you are on the outskirts of a small village. 20 or so huts of varying size and disrepair are dotted across the immediate landscape, each a good distance from its neighbors; The muck of the swamp swirling and curving between the dwellings.
