TO THE SOUTH
The once impossibly beautiful Road to the South runs between the Northern River Lighthouse
and the village of West Shanbar
. In the 1630s and 40s when Morphius and the evil magic
grew to monstrous proportions, the entire valley grew wickedly barren.
The infrastructure of the valley
was overturned and corrupted turning the surrounding region into what
the locals called 'The Dead Zone.' No longer was anyone able to tread
this now impassable route. For the patch between the
lighthouse and Shanbar was cursed by Morphius
so that all who ventured
along it were instantly killed. Following the defeat of Morphius,
the curse was broken and the Valley revitalized, thus the Road to the
South was once again traversable.
, indigenous to the area surrounding the Road to the South, share
the natural features of all that hail from that region of the world.
