As a result of the notable lack of interest for this area, we have after years
of careful consideration and planning, decided to take action.

Multiple changes have been made to the area to alleviate the reasons for the
mentioned disinterest.

The treasures to be found have undergone improvements, the area has been made
somewhat more accessible, and several changes have been made to make the
puzzles found within easier to grasp.

We encourage adventurers to explore carefully.
