I got lost the first time I entered this map. Also I regretted not having any food with heat resistance. So I reloaded. xD
The thing with this map is that if you don't feed all party members with heat resistance food, every step would bring their HP down a tiny bit. It's not going to kill them quickly but it is a little annoying.
Some areas on this map are locked until events happen. I should do a map for the ruin but I haven't had my Dwarf Fortress fix today. I will leave that to some other time. /sorry
If I remember correctly, Lidia knows her way here. When the game progresses to a certain point, she'll say she can help you out. Nothing will happen at the entrance of this map when you bring her along however. It requires Lidia to be close enough to, say, the ruin entrance, to be able to trigger the event.
Also, one of the materials Elias needs for the item he wants to make can be found here. Again, I didn't write it down when I was playing but I think it's something about Desert Lizard.
The boss here is Almer Baron. It has strong resistance to Fire, Wind, and Earth elements, weak against Ice element.
Good luck and have fun. :)
