We go up north to Exiles Gate ready to head out looking for the traveller's child. We are looking for the city of S'Xvillia, where we can find the Lord of the Great Horde.
Beyond the gate to the pass is a market town which foreign traders meet with our culture. Find a priest of the Enlightened One. It's a religion which has an eight pointed cross as a symbol. Speaking to him, he says there are a number of options for travelling the desert beyond the mountains.
There are the sand people who have a fanatical hatred of magic. They guard alll the water holes in the desert.
There are merchant caravans who travel the safe trade routes.
There are the borderers, who are sort of like rangers. They are known as Walkersin the Dark.
