It is time for me to move on and leave Istan. Unfortunately when I arrive in Kourna, I doubt anyone will greet me with open arms. After the recent events here, Kormir is set on starting a war with Kourna. The Elonian adventurers who did all the hard work before I arrived, found out that the corsairs were paid by the Kournans to start trouble here. Even more important is the revelation that Varesh Ossa is behind the evil forces found in Jokanur Diggings. Then our ally Tahlkora found out that Varesh and her general were conspiring to bring about “Nightfall”.
All I can do is lend my support to Kormir and the sunspears. So I made my way to the Istani Consulate before heading off to Gandara in Kourna to bring Varesh down.

Kodlonu Hamlet is a lovely outpost, filled with merchants and spots to relax. Most of the time when I reach an outpost after spending a long time fighting my way to it, there is no where to lounge. Not only does this place have a fireplace to gather around, but shaded seating. That is exactly where Cver found me waiting, and possibly wondering to himself if I was ever going to get up.

I brought him over to a corner of the hamlet and pointed out the strange Canthan. It was Jatoro Musagi! I spent a good amount of time on Shing Jea “helping” his mother straighten him out. Originally he became a member of the Crimson Skull pirate gang, then wandered the Jade Sea looking for money. He eventually wound up here through some business contract delivering a jadeite block to Vabbi. His ship was attacked by corsairs, but he found shelter in the hamlet. I offered to help Jatoro but he informed me that some young Elonian adventurers already did so.

I know that Cver is a gentleman, so without wasting any more of his time, we set out on our exploration of Mehtani Keys. Just as I stepped out and walked towards a boat parked on the shore, a group of mandragor erupted from the ground and attacked us.

I met up with Rajas, an Elonian adventurer, in the fishing outpost Beknur Harbor. The buzzing sound of cicadas is very prevalent here. My new friend Rajas was accustomed to it, but I thought the noises that the bugs made were annoying. Eager to start exploring with a native of Istan, I left the harbor with my friend for the Issnur Isles.

On my way to the Blacktide Den outpost, I bumped into an Elonian adventurer who was just leaving the area. We chatted briefly and I learned (among other things), that I should watch out for sneak attacks by corsairs. They operate a black market here, and do not hesitate to eliminate any threat to their business. I thanked the adventurer and met up with Cver in the outpost. We brought along the essentials needed to explore Lahtenda Bog, recruited some henchmen to accompany us, and departed from the outpost and into the dark wilderness.
