Sandy Plains is a desolate desert locale characterized by sandy dunes and rocky outcroppings, with various monsters that inhabit the region, which was first introduced by Monster Hunter 3 and remade for Monster Hunter Rise. While hunting monsters and gathering resources, you’ll come across special collectible items known as MHRise Relic Records, which contain Old Messages that allow you to uncover new insights about the game’s lore.
Also, if you collect these Relic Records, you will be rewarded with a fair amount of Kamura Points and Zenny Coins, as well as some room decoration pieces from Kagero the Merchant.
