|1||[Minegarde Geographer -3-]
I am the top geographer in Minegarde. What you hold in your hands is the record of my life's research into the wonderful lands of this world. The third part in my series will cover the Desert zone.
|2||The Desert Zone actually encompasses the rocky zone surrounding a steep mountain as well as the wide arid expanse of sandy desert. One must take precautions against extremes in temperature that occur day and night in the Desert zone. The scorching sand baked by the daytime sun can quickly chill after the sun sets.|
|3||Setting foot into this zone requires preparations depending on the time of day. If you enter the Desert zone during the daytime, a Cool Drink is in order, while the nighttime requires a Hot Drink to warm up. It is also worth mentioning that the lake located underneath the rocky mountains in the desert is always cold, regardless of the time.|
|4||The Desert zone is home to a wide variety of items. You can gather Cactus Flower, known for its use in making Antidote, as well as Power Seed, which awakens a strange power within, and Fire Herb, used in explosives. Another interesting item is the Tropical Berry. While of very little use when eaten fresh, when frozen, it both cools and nourishes the body.|
|5||You should also be aware of the Piscine Wyvern known as a Cephalos. It utilizes the fine sand as a means to travel, as well as hide. When traveling through the sand, only its fin can be seen, so the utmost of caution is required.|
|6||A wyvern called Diablos has also been spotted in the Desert zone. A wyvern sporting giant horns, it is incredibly powerful. Rumor has it that you can also fish for Plesioth in the massive underground lake, although I have yet to confirm this as fact.|
|7||Other Notes -Goldenfish-
Valuble. Often found living in a desert oasis or in the depths of the lake.
Other Notes -Killer Beetle-
Found in watery areas and extremely valuable.
Other Notes -Piscine Liver-
Delicacy taken from hard to slay Piscine wyverns, but their value is worth the effort.
