The Drystone Courtyard is one of the 12 Forbidden Burial Grounds. It is considered to be one of the top three most dangerous among them. People without a strong cultivation will be petrified in the moment they set a foot inside of the Drystone Courtyard. Many Virtuous Paragons died there and even several Immortal Emperors barely escaped with their lives. The petrification increases its strength when one goes further inside. However if one rides a special Wooden Horse is posible to prevent the petrification.
