I was just going to explore one of the few remaining black spots on my map, just for something to do. I ended up cleaning out and looting a nest of Berne vampires, a 6th House base, an egg mine and a bandit cave. All this was packed into a small, unexplored area of swamps between Hlormaren and Gnaar Mok. All this raiding and exploring also leveled my character twice. This is how Explorers roll.
