The Terror of Riltar
"Swamps and dark waters in every direction. Keep that torch handy gents, only going to get harder. They don't call it path finding because it's all laid out easy. Hahahahaha! Especially in this place, when we're walking in witch territory." – Torchbearer Gammel
The Mire, sometimes referred to as the Nebulous Mire, is a massive swamp located outside the great castle city of Arlure. A single hard cut trail that has existed for centuries leads through the mire to Arlure itself, lit by perpetually glowing lights and guarded by small companies of mages called Road Warders. Within recent years as the stigma against magic has grown, the Warders have grown thin, and are often escorted by various sellswords usually from Arlure. The mire is filled with all sorts of unnatural creatures, many believe to be failed experiments from the witches that call this nearly impossible place to navigate home. Creatures from the sea tend to swim up from channels in this area as well, much like the confluence, though they seem to thrive much more within this area. The Explorer Corps. is constantly sending new parties of their guild into this area, determined to map out all of the mire.
