Saeferd: the capital of Carthag, and the busiest port on all of Vesseroth. What can be said here that has not been said better and more eloquently elsewhere? The stink of the streets, the hungry masses of beggars, the soaring spires, the deep harbor, and countless sailing ships; all of these things are conjured with the name Saeferd. Saeferd is less a place and more a gateway. And for you, it is the gateway to Dallamar.
Each of you has been called upon, or chosen by your own free will to venture to the distant shores of Dallamar. Each of you has your own reasons for making this voyage. Here, in Saeferd, may be your last chance to provision and equip yourselves. Your destination, Ossinerak, is by all reports a primitive town, and its resources are unknown.
