The Serzhin Jungle just outside the city walls is considered extremely dangerous. It is filled with many deadly creatures and extremely hard to navigate. There is a path to the mining complex located in the jungle and it is advised that one never wanders off the path nor travels it at night. This advise is frequently not heeded by daredevils looking for adventure and it is not uncommon for someone to go missing.
The creatures of the jungle are a constant threat, and there are watchmen posted at the city gates to prevent any attacks. The mining complex itself is also walled and heavily guarded. If a hostile force attacks the complex, there is a warning horn blown to alert the city of a likely threat.
