- "There are many stories of a time, hundreds of years ago, when the Barta Crags were lush, green, and full of life. But then, a dragon rained its fire down on the crags, reducing them to treacherous swampland. It is best to avoid this area altogether, but if you must venture through it, do so at night, for during the day the air is thick with miasma, a poisonous gas guaranteed to cut your adventure, and your life, short." - Ser Daerio
