Someone give me a reason why the party should have a caravan which is trailing behind them.
The real prize is Saventh-Yhi (think archeological site). You need more than a few untrained murder-hobos to find the goodies there and hual them back to civilization. The party's job is to help get their expedition to the city first. You have who is helping who backwards. The party is supporting the caravan/faction expedition. Not the other way around.
As for treasure, etc. that is why your party needs to join a faction. They are going to the middle of nowhere. The faction expedition will provide a link back to civilization and a steady stream of supplies (allowing for buying and selling items).
If your party is thinking "who needs these factions", they should consider what will happen when the factions have hundreds of people in the city with security, etc. The Sargavans will be bringing an army, for example. The party can't "go it alone" on this one.
