When you arrive in Velen you’ll realize just how big this game really is (click on map above for a larger version of northern Velen). You begin near the Inn at the Crossroads in the north and spend most of the early game around Crow’s Perch and Midcopse.

When you visit a Notice Board more places of interest will be shown on your map. It’s worth investigating them because you’ll find additional quests and Places of Power which give you additional ability points to spend.

Velen is known as No Man’s Land and is a province of northern Temeria. You’ll find armed men from one army or another all over the place, as well as lots of bandits and mercenaries. A military camp has been set up in the south-east corner of Velen although you won’t be allowed inside.
