Unlocked by purchasing the Compass. The Dusty Path is where the player can allocate any supplies that they have, and can embark out into The World. 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.
At least one cured meat required to enter world
The player must allocate at least one Cured Meat to embark, as one Cured Meat is automatically consumed by the avatar every two characters as the avatar traverses The World.
