Remnants of the Mana War
You’ve left town at least once now, probably more times than that, but haven’t traveled far. It just wasn’t clear where to start…
One hint that’s been pretty obvious, but just seems a little too time consuming is that there is a road still standing in town. It travels to the south-southwest out of town, goes a ways, but eventually fades out and ends.
It PROBABLY doesn’t end, you assume, so where does it go? Or more correct, where DID it go? It might be worth trying to follow it, but it might also be too difficult to follow to anywhere useful.
