Most explorers of the area would have been traveling for days before the mornings light highlighted the rocky shores before them., marking that they had finally arrived at the Warriors pit. It's name hinting to its history as an ancient battle ground that encompassed a whole region of mountainous and rocky out jutting earthen spires and ravines, its flat land marred by horrendous environmental damage no doubt caused by Shinobi of the past. Most in the world had been taught that the Scorched lands were the most desolate place in the world, but this region utterly destroyed any and all notion of that once seen. It was bleak and a testament to the destructive nature behind human motivation. Nothing could ever compare to the feeling of dread and unease that settled over travelers as they crossed over and into the rocky hill line and deeper into the region, the first glimpses of the Bloodstained mire forever registering into their minds.
The marshland section of the region held uniquely colored flora and beasts meandered about it aimlessly, their forms occasionally visible through the dense foliage and plant life that was growing out of the bog before them. The clouds high above were numerous and caused limited light to filter down, giving the swamp an almost permanent sundown like atmosphere. In the center of the bog laid a great tree with crimson glowing baubles, that was clearly visible from the hill that had crossed over to enter into the area. As travelers encroached further into the area they would notice that the ground became sanguine in nature and the streams even ran the color of blood. A clear sign of the high iron content in the soil poisoning the water table, causing it to run red.
It was here that Genkumaru and Kannagi had reached after a somewhat stable journey on the Kataki road. The day of travel having been more or less comfortable for the two of them, or at least Gen thought so. As they entered into the region it was hard for him to describe just how awful it began to make him feel. The very air felt... heavy and as if some for of crushing weight was being placed on his shoulders just from being here. Stepping down into the ravine and making his way downwards into the bog land, he looked up to Kannagi with words of encouragement, "This place can't be nearly as scary as it looks can it?... I am sure this will just be a routine cut and dry harvest operation... That tree though.", Looking off into the distance below the winding paths of the mire could be seen to all culminate in a single spot. A grand tree that looked to be both lifeless and not at the same time, strange luminescent crimson orbs hanging from its branches that cast a sanguine glow upon the surrounding bog land. Stranger creatures flitted about periodically as Gen watched, during his descent.
The cliff face was steep and bending as it dropped into a flat spot on the ravines floor, the bog splayed out in front of them now like a twisted enchanting forest of terrifying sounds and images. A nightmare more then a dreamland, biting his lower lip he spoke again, "Okay maybe it is just as scary as it looks...", as he finished speaking, the ground quaked with a pulsing and building crescendo almost as if to say yes, and the source of the quake became audible as a guttural and terrifying roar came from something deep inside the bog that pierced through the valley like ravines walls and echoed back around, surrounding the area in its dread filled wail.
