Nimian Legends: BrightRidge Cartographers and Exploration Guild

Welcome, fellow explorers, wanderers and cartographers!
Sit down, take a drink and grab a snack, and share your tales with us.

Spoilers:
Hypocrypha kindly pointed this out, thanks!
No need to hide/mark "spoilers", as this is what the whole thread is about: sharing where to journey, and what you can find where.

To get the ball rolling, I'll start with a great vantage point: Libertesse.

From the starting location, turn left and make your way up to Libertesse, the white statue holding up a sword.
There, turn to have the sun on your left. Below, you will see the chasm spanned by two bridges.
Now, when you look at the far off mountain range, you can just make out the Spiral Tower there, half-hidden behind clouds.
If you wait a while, the clouds drift around, obscuring and revealing it again. And you can watch a flock of birds cross your sight.
Oh, and when you change into the Eagle, you can actually fly with the birds.

Always welcome! And I still didn't find that one under the sea, I think; would be great if someone can drop directions in the other thread.

Gosset Falls / Soderpoint

Gosset Falls

History
Soderpoint is a rock that overlooks Gosset Falls. It's my favorite spot in the game, and will be the home spot for the Spirit Hunter, a new character coming in an update. This spot overlooks Esherwood, a green leafy rose-filled valley just below BrightRidge inn, and the home of the Stag.

Location
A beautiful shortfalling misty river located a few steps east of BrightRidge Inn.

The Corpse of Nikemus Noos

History
Nikemus Noos was a famed Igri explorer who traveled the world, making maps and archiving the local lore from dozens of nations. Nikemus slipped and fell while exploring the chasm south of BrightRidge. At least he perished doing what he loved, and has his final resting place amid the wilderness he so loved to explore.

Location
His frozen body can be found by traveling through a slim crack near the eastern mouth of the chasm.

The Old City

History
destroyed generations ago when powerful forces ripped through the shoreline city, upheaving the coast and sliding VilPort under the sea. The Behemoos were the creatures who destroyed VilPort - creatures so massive and ancient the very few things can defy them. And now it's rumored one is returning to the depths of the open coast.

Location
Go out past bear country to the eastern shore and swim out towards the sea and eventually you'll come across the old city.

Gossidan

History
Gossidan's companion swam away a century ago, into the open coast in search of a Behemoos, massive ancient beings who today number less than 40 planet wide. She still sings for him as she patrols the coast, waiting for him to return. And when he does, she may not like what he brings back.

Location
Go to the windmill in fox country and youll see a spiral tower rising out of the water. Swim out to the tower and look around. Sooner or later Gossidan will swim by. You can even run on her back if she lets you, or fly along side her while she swims.
