12.2.9.2 THE BLASTED LAND

When the Taint escaped from Magnagora, it sunk into the peaceful farms and 
small villages that surrounded the city and destroyed them utterly. Now 
the Blasted Land consists of dirt and stones, with only a few tattered 
remnants to show that plants once thrived here. Travellers should beware, 
for the dreaded beasts known as 'gravediggers' make their tunnels beneath 
the soil, and any wrong footing will plunge the unwary victim deep into a 
pit of savage mutants.
