Every day, Gilgamesh sends out men to find Enkidu.
Enkidu is a master at hiding from prey. The men march in circles for days and never find him. But every day they find more traps broken, and more fields with their irrigation dams destroyed. The people are growing hungry! They demand that Gilgamesh do something!
Should Gilgamesh come out and fight? Or just wait it out, rationing the food in Uruk and see who gives up first? Or find some way to make Enkidu enter the city, Gilgamesh's home turf? Or do something else?
