The Mark of Tyranny
“The world is giant, but nothing makes it feel larger than travelling the tablelands. Without a compass or a map, you could wander it for months without seeing another soul or sign of civillization. Well, aside from the creatures trying to kill you.” Rhotan Vor cautioning his caravan to stay together.
