The Western Approach

The Western Approach


The Western Approach is desolate and crawling with monsters. The dunes and sand in this area make it possible to see for quite a distance into the open. The Grey Warden fortress of Adamant is found in this area, a defensive structure from the Second Blight. There’s a lot of work to be done in this area and nothing wants you around, it’s time change that.
