Unlocked by purchasing the Compass. To utilize the compass, hover your mouse over the compass on the right side where it shows up. The Dusty Path is where the player can embark out into The World and decide what supplies to bring on the expedition. Once the player embarks, they are taken to an overhead map, where the player can control their avatar (represented by the "@" symbol), navigating the map with either the WASD or Arrow keys.
The player must take at least one Cured Meat to embark, as one Cured Meat is automatically consumed by the avatar every two spaces as the avatar traverses The World.
