Vallynn feels like it's unfair of him to be disappointed in Izlude, especially given how he hadn't really been expecting, ah, anything in particular. But he can't shake the feeling, as he takes a second to start to regain his land legs, that had he been expecting something, it would've been, well... more than this, kind of. It really isn't fair of him! It's just a satellite city off Prontera, it's not meant to be grand, it's not the capital of the kingdom like Prontera is, no one advertised it as anything but this. But still.
In retrospect maybe he should've predicted this. People talk such big game about the mainland, it's where everything's happening, and really there isn't actually much of anything happening at all back in Brasilis, so despite his trying to not get hyped up of course he would've subconsciously absorbed some of that messaging and projected it onto this place.
