Even though Pongmei Valley is still considered to be within Kaineng City (although that is a bit of a stretch), you can see into the Luxon and Kurizck lands. From here the Luxon area seems nice, because we get a good view of the Qinkaishi Mountains but in reality most of the Luxon area is water frozen in time as jade. The mark Shiro left on Echovald Forest is much more apparent here.

Solorian, N. Squirrel, and Loreal decided to help me today with my exploration of Pongmei Valley.

As you go deeper into the Echovald Forest, not even the light seen here usually can break through the canopy of tree tops.

There are a lot of hills, which make for a great place to take in the scenery. First, I looked back on the city and Maatu Keep.

Then I looked at where the city continues, including a small area where Xuekao, the Deceptive and his Am Fah followers hang out. In the far distance, you can see the land start to slope into the sewer.

This is the last sewer I’ll be exploring for a long time. The smell is bad enough, but then I have to deal with Am Fah and the Afflicited.

This looks like a good spot for a picnic. There is such a nice view of the sky, snow capped mountains, and waterfalls. Although if you are not careful where you sit, a Rot Wallow may jump at you and bite!

We explored the base of the mountain and found a rapid river leading deeper into a crack in the wall.

I cheered with my friends U. Loreal, N. Squirrel, and Solorian D. for finally being done with Kaineng City. I do not expect to have an easier time exploring the Kurzick or Luxon lands, but I am pretty sure they smell a lot better.
