|1||[Minegarde Geographer -4-]
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 fourth part in my series will cover the Swamp zone.
|2||The Swamp zone is a narrow strip of damp and humid marshlands enveloped in mist, characterized by the presence of caves. These caves, are very cold, so without adequate protection from these extreme temperatures Stamina will be quickly depleted. However, the caves are also a great source of ore, so they are often visited by hunters.|
|3||One of the best ways to protect against the cold is by consuming a Hot Drink. By warming the interior of the body, it is able to curb sudden decreases in Stamina. You can also counter-act the cold by wearing armor with high heat retention.|
|4||Due to the high humidity in the region, there are a large variety of mushrooms that can be gathered. For instance, Toadstools and Nitroshrooms are said to be quite abundant in the region. Due to their ability to be combined with many things, these mushrooms are considered a necessity for every hunter.|
|5||When night arrives in the Swamp zone, poisonous gases rise from the ground, meaning all who set foot in the zone are subject to poisoning. It has also been confirmed that vast numbers of poisonous monsters such as Iopreys and Gypceros have been sighted. Those entering the Swamp zone should prepare counter-measures against poison.|
|6||From small wyverns such as the Yian Kut-Ku or Gypceros to their larger, more powerful cousins Gravios and Khezu, many monsters call the Swamp zone home. You must also be prepared to face off against Carapaceons such as the Shogun Ceanataur and Primatius such as the Congalala.|
