Head in a 2-o'clock direction from spawn. You'll be in for a bit of a hike, but at the end of it is a triple desert village, making it worth your while. You'll know you're heading in the right direction when you spot a small sand hill and a pool of lava.
The sprawling village is bisected by a river. It features two blacksmiths and an abundance of farms. You'll be able to live like a king in this huge desert oasis.
