The journey seemed to begin with expectations and unease, and the youths felt like they were unprepared, but they could not run away any more.
The Tower Clan from Kirrlutz had an adage: ‘The difficulty of a long journey can extinguish one’s strong willpower’. These nomadic merchants who loved to travel with their vast products had a deep understanding towards adventure.
On the very first day, Kodan recommended that Brendel camp outside the forest and set off after a night’s rest.
However, Brendel thought that he needed to finish his goal quickly, and since he was more experienced than the old swordsman, there was no need to waste.
In the blink of an eye, Brendel and his crew had already entered the Dark Forest for a week.
As they traveled deeper into the Dark Forest, they found it was like peering into of unlit layers of emerald gems, covered under branches that appeared to be black in color. The density of the verdant leaves was thick, and they leaked out sunlight which in turn made the environment appear shadowy-green.

It allowed a better performance in incantations.
