A large natural cave complex just northeast of Goznor, in the mountains. Sparkly gems are abundant in these caves, which are dug up by miners because they feel like it or it's their job or something.

Encyclopaedia description

The Gem Mine is in northern Goznor, being the first dungeon in MARDEK Chapter 2: A New Hero and the third dungeon overall in the series (first and second are Dragon's Lair and Soothwood, respectively).

In MARDEK Chapter 3: Keystones, only the left and central paths can be explored. The lake could also be explored (with Oxyale), containing the Dreamstone #14.

Involvement

During MARDEK Chapter 2: A New Hero, the mine was briefly occupied by a group of bandits, led by Muriance, who attempted to find the Water Crystal of Belfan. The miners expressed that the Crystal wasn't in the mine, leaving a disbelieving Muriance to search until he was stopped by the Royal Guards of Goznor, as their final test to become guards. After that, it is possible to return later and explore more of the mine. In MARDEK Chapter 2: A New Hero, the left and right paths are able to be explored, both containing items, and a lake can be found to the north, also with treasure. MARDEK Chapter 2: A New Hero is the only chapter (currently) that allows access to the right path, as it is blocked in MARDEK Chapter 3: Keystones.
