Maroon Valley is a location in CrossWorlds. It is a large, dry, hot desert area that has multiple chasms and an oasis.

Maroon Valley

Maroon Valley is a dry and hot area located on the western side of the continent. The terrain is mostly eroded and some parts are under the constant grinding pressure of a sandstorm. The storm itself, however, is not a product of natural air movement. The scientists of Shadoon assume that some Ancients Technology causes it, as no other explanation could be found. Despite the harsh nature of the area there are some parts that fight back, such as the Maroon Oasis, which is filled with lush plantlife. To the west of the area one can find the home of the Shad tribe: Ba'kii Kum.

-Encyclopedia entry
Maroon Oasis

The Maroon Oasis is a lush area found on the east side of Maroon Valley. It's filled with all sorts of plant and wild life and is crowned by a majestic tree which strongly resembles a maroon or cherry tree.

But it bears no fruits and blossoms all year, leaving petals on the ground for animals to eat or people to gather.

It is assumed that the tree itself is the reason the oasis still exists. Scientists who studied the tree found that it produces nutrients and channels them into the ground using the sunlight, something Maroon Valley has plenty of.

Layout[]

Maroon Valley is located in between Ba'kii Kum and Bergen Village. You can get there by leaving Bergen Village to the west. The area itself is complex and full of puzzles, with many areas being difficult to access. On the map below, the main path through the area is 1-2-3-4-(8/10)-9-11-14-15-17-18. All three other loops can only be unlocked in one direction (forward for the Maroon Oasis, and backward for the other two), and require completing numerous puzzles to proceed. River Cliff/Endless Pit in particular requires you to start in Barren Land and follow an upper, puzzle-filled path through Overpass to reach the areas.

Connecting Regions[]

The regions adjoining Maroon Valley are Bergen Village via Rising Railway, Ba'kii Kum via West Entrance, and Faj'ro Temple via Temple Entrance and Faj'ro Roof.

Rooms[]

Many of the side caves are only unlocked during specific quests. The Maroon Cave is unlocked during Maroon Tree Defender. The Toisecave is unlocked during Blasting Shells. The Windless Caverns and Barren Temple are unlocked during Hot Trail and Waves of Sand. The Brigand Cave is unlocked during Just Deserts. The Testing Area is unlocked during An unfortunate Series of Features. The Deadly Oasis and Cursed Temple require the Valuable-key.pngCursed Coin to reach. The secret lab is PC-exclusive, and is unlocked during Best in the West. The Temple Entrance is only accessible once the Faj'ro Temple is unlocked, and the Faj'ro Roof is reached after the temple is completed.

Role in the Plot[]

In CrossWorlds[]

Seekers initially pass through Maroon Valley on their way to Ba'kii Kum, in order to request access to the Faj'ro Temple. The Ba'kii Kum Eldress first requests their assistance in the mandatory quest Maroon Tree Defender. During this quest, Seekers return to Maroon Valley and enter the cave under the Maroon Oasis, where they must defeat several Tims and the Ti'im boss in order to protect the Maroon Tree. After doing so, they can arrange access to the Temple.

In CrossCode[]

After arriving in Maroon Valley, Lea is immediately joined by Emilie. The two travel through the area to Ba'kii Kum, with Emilie complaining about a school project and how she got in trouble for missing a meeting.

The next day, Lea meets up with C'tron for the first time in Maroon Valley. The two travel to the Maroon Oasis and complete the Maroon Tree Defender quest together. Afterwards, Emilie comes online and rushes to complete the quest herself, while the other two return to Ba'kii Kum to wait for her. After another encounter with Apollo in Ba'kii Kum, Lea is challenged to another duel, which then takes place in front of the Faj'ro Temple. After the duel, Lea, Emilie and C'tron enter the temple together.

The three friends meet up briefly on the balcony halfway through the temple, then again at the top, where Emilie finally learns about Lea's speech synchronization issues. The three log off afterwards, and Lea has a long lucid dream about a location in Sapphire Ridge. When Lea logs back on, Sergey reveals that due to complications on his side, she has been offline for 3 days.

During the A New Home DLC, Lea and C'tron briefly return to Maroon Valley to visit where they first met, in the hopes of restoring C'tron's memories.

By collecting the Valuable-key.pngCursed Coin in Ba'kii Kum, you can access the Cursed Temple and fight the Cursed Sharkster. This boss fight is required for the A Promise Is a Promise 3 quest, but can be completed without the quest.

In the A New Home DLC, after defeating DON'T USE THIS in the Arena, a secret trader unlocks in the southwest corner of Testing Area. It can only be reached by using a Long Jump or by hopping on some mostly-invisible platforms.
