Fortunes Vale

About the map

In April 2013 a mysterious map named Fortunes Vale showed up in the DAT file. It was located east of the borderlands and featured several distinct biomes. Fast forward a few patches later and the entire map and all assets disappeared without a trace from the DAT file, never to be seen again.

On this page you'll find most of the data that could be recovered from this older client. Or you can find a full playlist for the audio here.
