*-* | Here stands the great golden gates of the city of Valour. They
| | bear the sigil of Valour upon them - an enlarged depiction of
o-o * | the Holy Cross. Strong and heavy, these gates are at least fifteen
| | | feet tall. They have been attached to the white stone fortress
o-o-@-+-+| wall that encloses the inside city. At the top of the gates and
| | | looking out over them, two flags fly proudly - the first, Valour's
o * | national flag, and the second, the flag of Seringale.

A Secluded Field
*-*| This small field appears to be completely empty. All that you
|| see in all directions is nothing but a short mat of fresh green
o-o *| grass. Far to the north you think you see a white picket fence
| || but you cannot be sure from this great distance. Growing inside
o-@-+-+| the grass are small white daisies, their yellow faces staring
| || up at the sky. This part of Drakath has been untouched by the
*-o *| busy hands of progress and remains even to this day in its
| | natural beauty. It seems the perfect place to have a picnic.

Flattened Grass
| The constant marching of soldiers through this field have
| left the young grass completely flattened, although it still
o-o| grows with the vigour it had before it was ever stepped on.
| | Amongst the grass you see small daisies and buttercups, their
@-o-+| happy faces staring straight up into the sky. A few huge
| | footprints have been left in a long line directly across
o-*-o | the field, giving the impression that a heavily armored giant
| | | passed through here not too long ago. It seems very peaceful
o + | and quiet.

A Grassy Plateau
o-o| The ground here appears to have been levelled off carefully
| | by the folk of Drakath. It is almost completely flat, not
o-o-+| a single bump rising upon it. All that covers it is a lush
| | green grass barely a few inches long. This plateau of grass
o-*-@ | continues off northwards almost as far as you can see. Small
| | | drops of morning dew have collected upon it, glistening and
o + | gleaming in the light. A light breeze blows in from the west,
| | bringing with it the fresh salty scent of the ocean. High
+-+-+ | above you seagulls circle around scouting the plateau for
---------+ scraps.

A Peaceful Outpost
o| This looks like a relatively new clearing. All the stones
|| have been brushed away to make room for a camp of a sort.
o-o| Occupying one part of the clearing is a hut built out of
| | freshly hewn wood. Upon closer inspection you realize that
o-@-o | this hut is big enough to fit a legendary Oliphaunt. A
| | | well worn path runs through the middle of the clearing.
o-o + | On one side of the path is fresh mud, in which there are
| | gigantic footprints. Strangely, there is a well-tended
o-+-+-+ | vegetable garden laid in a sunny corner of the clearing.
---------+ Rutabaga's, potatoes and many other herbs and vegetables
you are unable to recognize have been perfectly organized in rows, with loving
care.

Along the Trail
| A pathway covered in dried and broken tree branches leads
| its way through a minor forest here. It seems to have
o| been travelled infrequently judging from the amount of
|| growth that has been allowed to occur regarding the bushes
* @-*-o| here. The north and west fronts are rendered completely
| | || impossible to pass by the presence of huge vines and
o-o-o +| dense thickets in their general directions. The scent
|| of mildew is prevalent here and the thickets are covered
+-+-+| in a thin layer of liquid rain that has condensed upon
---------+ them. It seems to have been left completely untouched
by the town's people, as if they had left it to grow over quite deliberately.

Around a Meandering Trail
o| The trail winds its way around a bend in the path here,
|| heading directly through dense bushes. The main streak
* o-*-o| of the trail has been brushed clear of dirt and gravel
| | || by the many passersby leaving it fairly visible, but the
o-o-@ +| heavy woodland surrounding it unfortunately makes it hard
|| to see what is round the next corner. Light clear patches
+-+| of mountain dew rest on the long green leaves of the glade,
| reflecting the sunlight in a spectrum of colour. Though
| difficult to squeeze through, this part of Drakath is
---------+ an outstanding area of natural beauty and you may wonder
if it has been left in this unkept state quite intentionally.

A Narrow Trail
* | Small rocks have been brushed aside of the path here creating
| | a narrow trail leading away from the collosal Storm hill.
*-* o-*| At the sides of the path wild bracken grows, overpopulating
| | | it and making it a struggle just to get past. Tall hedgerows
z-o-@-o | block both your vision and passage to the east and south
| | as you wade onward. The greenery here is covered in a strange
z | clear dew that appears to be without source, for the air
| | is very dry and chilly. The only trace of wind that blows
+-+-+ | through here is that which waves the upper arms of the plantlife
---------+ slightly, not enough to feel on your face. It seems that
this part of Drakath has been left to its own devices.

Entrance to a Cave
* | A huge hole has been excavated from the side of the hill,
| | leaving some sort of cave-in just ahead of you. As you
*-*-* o| look into the cave all you see is utter darkness, not a
| | || trace of light coming from within. It seems to have been
z z-@-o-o| left unvisited for many years. Strange voices and even
| | roars echo from the inside of the cave as you approach
z o | it. Its entrance is over fifteen feet high and there is
| | | easily enough room for three men to walk in abreast, although
+-+-+-+ | not particularly inviting. To the west a pathway leads
---------+ around the collosal hill and east of here is a vague looking
trail.

Into Darkness
| You find yourself deep inside the heart of Storm hill, so dark
| that it is impossible to even see your hand in front of your
* | face. The air is musty and stale, smelling like the rotten
| | breath of some foul creature. It is completely still and silent.
*-*-@ o| The walls almost seem to close in on you in an attempt to prevent
| | || your escape from this magical cave. The atmosphere here is
z z-o-o-o| very claustrophobic, even though the size of this cave is enormous.
| | A trickle of light escapes into the cave from the south. To
z | the west of here the cave gets even darker and more foreboding.
---------+ Strange echoes resonate.
