The mine valley of Khorinis. The glorious days of the once productive mines in this small seaside region were long over. Surrounded by the impenetrable magical barrier, the slaves eked out their miserable existence in this apparently natural prison. One brave man managed to burst the bonds of imprisonment.

Spurred by the hatred of men long-suppressed, the prisoners streamed trough the only pass to freedom.
