So many little nooks and viewpoints to explore . The kind of place you visit during a day out and wish you could stay for a month or more ,to take photographs of every thing from every possible angle and even some impossible angles! Captivating!

The next quest is on that mountain. The villagers eill tell me not to go because it's too dangerous. But I'll go because I'm the hero of the story and I need it to complete the game anyway. There's a powerful boss up there and a dungeon filled with treasure.
