For this expedition, I’m starting from the Ruins of Surmia. I thought about leaving from the Frontier Gate, but I really wanted to get the grawl out of the way first.
To make things easier, one of my sidekicks knew a curse known as Spinal Shivers and I used arrows enchanted with cold magic.

A fellow adventurer by the name of Erolin peaked my interest in this place. We both share the same desire to see the world and learn what we can to save it. I met her just outside the gates of Ascalon City.
