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