  • In Area 1, after the first room is cleared, only the left barrier disappears.
  • There are no ores to be found on this map.
  • In Area 2, the Blood Lord will appear if a character moves far enough from the starting wall, but travel along the wall is safe.
    • It is possible to make a campfire near the entrance, using the gourds as fuel.
