The woods in this area opens up into a wide circular glade.
You stand in a clearing with trees surrounding the open glade that you are in. The area stretches around you in a rough circle with a prominent large old tree in the south of the glade, you can see something glinting off the bark of this tree. Above, the sky is blue with a faint hint of clouds drifting across the skies while the light sound of birds in the air brings a slight music to your ears.
At the eastern edge of the glade you can see a path leading through the woods into the distance, it looks to be a heavily travelled path. While to the west there appears a thinner path that leads deeper into the woods. There is also someone standing by the edge of the glade who seems to be offering to sell you something.
You can go east, west, or you search the area. You also notice someone standing by some nearby bushes who seems to be offering a map. Make sure to save a copy of your map.
