The directions to Farside Village were easy enough. That was not the problem. The problem was the physical act of getting there. Some models of digiport could have provided instant transport, but travelers without that probably wouldn’t have such an easy time. Farside was located deep within the desert, far from the oasis, far from the train tracks, far from Rustport, far from... well, just about everything. From within the village itself there was nothing to obstruct the view in any direction but sand dunes and the curvature of the planet, and from far away the little settlement always appeared much closer than it really was without a frame of reference.
Without one of the mysterious messenger’s oddly convenient digiports or one of their own, responders to this call had to get where they were going under their own power. Almost every route was mostly safe, discounting the odd unfriendly wanderer, but going this deep into the desert under one’s own power could take a toll on the hardiest digimon. Hazards from heat, dehydration, and the sand itself were not off the table. However, a digimon could make the journey under their own power with wit, supplies, and a healthy constitution.
Arrivals to Farside were always received with a warm welcome and a refreshingly chilled bottle of water by whoever was at the station that day, which in this case was a Cyclonemon and a Golemon. It was about midafternoon when the group met up here. As Cyclonemon and Golemon offered everyone hydration, the Golemon asked, “It’s not every day we get visitors on the far side of the desert. What brings you here?” By first impressions alone, it made sense that this spot wasn’t exactly a tourist hotspot. Besides the journey to get there, the village itself was remarkably forgettable. The homes and business were mostly tents and mud, and the population of the place couldn’t have been more than three hundred digimon given the limited space the village took up. Nonetheless it was a busy place with a diverse assortment of digimon milling about their business.
