Deciphering the Map

Deciphering the Map

Quest Log

With the map now in your possession, you retreat to a quiet corner of the Goblin Tavern. The map is ancient, covered in cryptic symbols and riddles. The only way to decipher it is to channel your inner strength and resolve, embodying the spirit of your paladin friend from long ago. The map's secrets are guarded by mystical forces that test both your physical power and mental fortitude. As you delve deeper, you feel the weight of an unseen presence, a guardian spirit that will not easily yield the map’s secrets. You must prove yourself worthy by enduring this challenging trial of strength and willpower. The guardian spirit has 6 HP. If you manage to reduce its HP to 0, it reveals the secrets of the map.
