Your journey into the Exiled Lands starts with you crucified in a desert for randomly generated crimes (including bad use of grammar, decapitation of a priest, and freeing slaves). You suddenly find yourself freed and follow a path into lush riverlands, where you’ll find wood, fibre and stone in ample supply, along with other players of similarly low level. Once you’re able to craft better items, you’ll need to start travelling outwards and into more barren lands for coal and iron. On the way you’ll encounter colossal stone statues and deserted castles, as well as caves to explore. They’re eye-catching monuments, and vital to navigating a land that would otherwise be less than memorable.
