Guide to Eastern Marshes

Updated Wed, Apr 02, 2008 by Taea

The Valverde Marshes region of Richard Garriott’s Tabula Rasa is a terrible place to be fighting a war. Mud grabs at your boots, mist coats your visor and toxic swamp gasses weaken your immune system. Southeast of Paludos, brave AFS soldiers man a tiny post that sits smack dab between two hotly contested Control Points. Swarming with Bane and never safe for a minute, this post offers several missions for the brave who can make it through the mud in one piece. It’s a dirty war, but someone needs to fight it.

The Bane are massing in far larger numbers that was previously thought. The large base to the east needs to be infiltrated, and the crew in the downed dropship may have found a way in.

Read the guide to mud and tears here, and comment in the Tabula Rasa Community Forums.
