    Unfortunately, my printing press has not yet been delivered. I have to resort to tearing out the last page of the SoTA Travel Guide to use as a brochure! Luckily that guy just leaves heaps of them with the Town Criers who are happy to give the whole stack to me! Pay no attention to the overflowing garbage cans out back...

    doesnt matter where you go, peeps are going to complain - its a failure to read the fine print is what it is! it probably said something like, 'travel at own risk' and 'be prepared for weather extremes' in there somewhere behind the glossy pics.... lol

    Very much looking forward to taking the tour!!
    Wagons ho! :D

    Fantastic idea!

    I'm a bit biased - a partner and I had a similar concept in Age of Conan. We didn't quite get it going as much as we hoped, but we did have a few adventures that were an enormous amount of fun.

    Notice!

    Due to major earthquakes ongoing in the Metropolis of Beran's Reach which have been leveling our offices almost monthly (with another predicted towards the end of this month), deCani Tour and Expedition is currently unable to accept new reservations. We are endeavoring to build a more permanent facility. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

    In the meantime, your friends at deCani Tour and Expedition are happy to present this complimentary map of Dragon Cave for self-guided tours. Kobolds have been observed in the caves (packing or unpacking Wrasse eggs?) making this exploration well suited for the mid-to-high level adventurer. Please proceed carefully and at your own risk.*

    The coordinates of an Avatar in New Britannia are temporarily available without advanced equipment by requesting your location from the Oracle (by typing /loc in the chat window). The resulting values are returned in the form of: East/West, Elevation, North/South.

    Be advised this map provides a detailed overview of the interior of Dragons Cave and, once seen, cannot be unseen. If you wish to enjoy the discovery of the contents and layout of the caverns for yourself (and we applaud you!) please do not use this reference.

    * deCani Tour can not be held responsible for any loss of persons, pets, sanity, well being, or belongings in the caves.
    ** Earthquakes, Kobold, or other activity, can potentially modify the structures in this cave or destroy it entirely. This map is accurate to the best of our abilities at the time of this notice. deCani Tour and Expedition cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in complimentary materials. Information is best used while it is fresh.

    That is absolutely beautiful, brings back so many good memories of mapping dungeons in U4, Thank you. That must be inserted into the game as an ingame map

    My dear sir Balec Fares deCani, it seems that some of the Lux Spelunkers followed this map tour of yours but instead of finding big letters at those coordinates it seems they got lost through some hatches and ended up going through the sewers in Owl's Head. After some snacks from Myra they tried retraceing their steps but instead they found themselves in Ravensmoor.
    Well a long story short, now a few are guarding the tombs with other femurian colleagues, while some made it back with or without their sanity.

    So is there any truth to these rumors that all the dungeons in the Vale are interconnected? And if so wouldn't it be advicable to include this warning at least as a sidenote to this tour map?

    Happy Hunting and looking forward to your excellent tours' next visit through Lux Sanctuary.

    My dear sir Balec Fares deCani,

    I have a small conundrum if you don't mind. Recently a scribe claiming to be from your dear company arrived in Lux. He wasn't really coherent and raged about some extra copies of a portrait? Well he clearly needed rest and recuperation in the Thermae. But of late it worries me that he speaks so badly of your esteemed person.
    So I wonder if it truly is like this scribe claims that you sent him here to try out the amenities for an upcoming tour guide book of Lux and that all expenses will be paid when next you arrive. Or might I be prudent in assuming that I should maybe lock him in with the kittens and get some truth from him?

    Happy Hunting and looking forward to your excellent tours' next visit through Lux Sanctuary.

    Spoon mayor of Lux Sanctuary.​

    ...figure emerges clean and rested from the delightful Thermae baths...appears to resemble Balec Fares deCani
    "WHAT!!!!? 500 gold for a dip in a naturally occurring hole in the ground?"
    slams down the fee, a generous tip and a stack of updated maps
    "I really need to hire some help."
    ..returns to picking up the rubble of his offices in Beran's Reach and wondering if everyone talks to themselves when stressed...

    Balec, you knew perfectly well that those health-giving properties of that "special water" don't come cheap o_O Besides, you did have that very lovely woman attend to you while you were there :rolleyes:

    Gee...looks like this struggling playwright will need to find a wealthy patron in order to afford a few visits there :p Either that or get a job working as a tour guide for Balec once he gets his offices rebuilt ;) Not sure how good I would be at that, though. (Hey folks, don't mind those kobolds! Just wave and smile! They won't hurt you :D)

    Ok, let me see if I get this right ms Flowers. When sir deCani asked for a special bath you asked him to change over there and then prepared the chocolate surprise private bath, but deCani didn't show up? Then you found him outside the public bath in the fishpond relaxing and having a good time. Right so why didn't you tell him about the misunderstanding? Oh he wasn't wearing any hosen. Why would that stop you? Ms Flowers could you please stop giggling and answer the question.
    Oh I give up.
    Better make a note to self to give sir deCani the full tour next time of both the public Thermae and the private baths. One never knows what these guides will say otherwise. Bye and thanks for the fish?
    *Shakes head*

    Ok, next item on the agenda...
    Hmmm, a request for discounts for struggling artists? Seems like a good idea actually. They could work for their keep and struggling artists are usually great for any party with too many rich folks. Where is my approved stamp?
    *knock knock*
    Yes ms Flowers, why are you interrupting? You are leaving for Beran's Reach? But why?
    And stop giggling.
