Campaign of the Month: November 2011
Avatar: Conquest of the Imperial Order
The Serpent’s Pass is a narrow strip of land between the East and West Lakes that link the western and eastern halves of The Land of Earth, and is one of the very few direct paths to Ba Sing Se. It is named after the serpent which guards it. Most refugees refuse to use the pass and instead cross the lake by boat.
The Serpent’s Pass is one of the few direct paths to Ba Sing Se. It is very rocky and is covered in dangerous cliffs. Although called the Serpent’s Pass, it is not as twisted as a serpent like most people assume. It is in fact, named after the gigantic serpent that guards it. The serpent attacks everything and everyone that trespasses into its territory, and few have ever survived an encounter with it. This makes the Serpent’s Pass one of the most feared locations in the land. Although many refugees from the War pass this area, few have the courage to cross it, instead choosing the well-protected harbor at Full Moon Bay, as it provides undisturbed passage to Ba Sing Se via boat. To further warn refugees of the dangers at the Serpent’s Pass, a large sign at the Pass entrance reads “Abandon hope”, adding to the strong fear aimed at the location.
