Hail, adventurer. Wait, do not tell me─Nedrick sent you.
Tell me this, adventurer─do you know how the Aurum Vale earned its most enticing name? Well, allow me to enlighten you.
The cave is rich with sulphur and mythril ore which, through reactions with the groundwater, combine to exude golden-hued fumes. A beautiful sight─that is, until you realize the damned death clouds are burning your chest from within.
If you still wish to take your life in your hands, I'll not be the one that stops you. But do try not to get killed─I've dragged enough corpses out of the vale to last me a lifetime.
