Encampment (Prologue) Map - Pillars of Eternity

Five wagons grope blindly for the path on a starless night, their master glancing ever upward to the skies for assurance that he is on the right course, a dim lantern his only protection against the encroaching darkness.

The caravan carries travelers bound for the frontier hamlet of Gilded Vale, you among them, where a local lord has offered land and wealth to settlers from abroad looking for a fresh start.

You have taken suddenly ill, sweating and shivering, and one of the other travelers signals for the caravan master to stop on your behalf. He pulls up just in time to avoid plowing into the trunk of a fallen tree that bars the way ahead. You will go no further tonight.

QUEST: The Gilded Vale The Gilded Vale

Gilded Vale is said to be one of the most prosperous villages in the Dyrwood, full of opportunities for work and wealth. I was told they're offering land to new settlers.

"Alternatively you can kill everyone in the caravan to go on to the cave, this is very difficult and all it gets you is a point in cruelty as you can't even stop to loot the bodies before the storm hits. The quest to get berries autocompletes. Not really a good idea from a RP or a strategic point of view but its a nice Easter egg that is built in, dont like tutorials? Kill everyone and bypass it :P"
