First go as north as possible (Past the bow and slingshot selling girl) , then over the bride (right side) then north, then across another bridge that goes north, then go behind the mountain that is in the right side of the mountain and then go east until a new location apears. The camp is there.

Okay so i've tested the game (0.18) on OSX but i face a "huge" problem. I've finished the first mining quest and the two second quest (clear the gobelin camp + spot the tower). But now, the npc who gave me these quests only tell me that a man came in town few days ago and went to the tower. And that's it, i have no other quest. I spoke to all npc but nothing. Also, i tried to go In that tower but nothing happen. (I also tried to elsewhere but the only message i can read is : unknown location. So.. any clue ? I'm a little lost here.

I was having same problem. In my case this game was installed 2 times: 1st via package manager(Ubuntu) and 2nd via Desura. When I removed 1st installation game starts as expected.
