Most news from Jantai is news from The Mouth, although the region has more to offer than just this cavernous smuggler's den. The ruins of the Jantai Kingdom attract adventurers to this day, and some of the ancient monasteries and temples are still used. While the Labareans have formally occupied The Mouth, their control of the region is limited and the wilderness of Jantai hosts many who are on the run from the gnomes.
