The Desert Explorer perk reduces sanity cost when traveling through Desert terrain from 10 to 6.

Benefits Edit

This allows for much easier exploration of desert maps. With a water flask, traveling through Desert will further reduce sanity cost from 6 to 1.

Tips Edit

The explorer Freya Stark begins the game with this perk. Extremely useful if you plan on visiting the desert, e.g. in order to find the treasures that are only obtainable there. Pair with Bedouin character for maximum effect.
