It is a good idea to have the creature close to the scroll before starting this challenge, so there will be plenty of time to save all the villagers.
The Good WayEdit
The good way to solve this challenge is to send in the creature to pick up the villagers and carry them safely to the shore (the player can't can't do this by him/herself). The creature should be ordered to pick up and carry each and every villager manually. This will prevent it from eating one of them. You must make sure you don't drop the villagers right at the shore, as sometimes a bug causes the people to "swim on land" as if they were still on water; the bug is also present in the similar challenge The Sea, on Land 2, where there are children to save.
The Evil WayEdit
Like many Black & White challenges, this one can be completed in an evil way. Simply killing even one of the villagers or ignoring them altogether will cause the woman to say that her husband was killed by the player (no matter which villager died).
- Although the creature is needed to pick up and carry the villagers to safety, there's a single villager which can be picked up by the player. This is assumed to be a bug.
