Areas on Laenor

Area Difficulty Description Size Coordinates
Abandoned Valley Can usually be explored safely by newbies who are not curious. 19
Arelium Varies a lot. Not very many aggressive mobs though, and even they are usually very small, so mostly safe for newbies to explore. The main city/"capital" of Laenor. There are many important places in Arelium, for example Mage, Civilized mage, Civilized fighters and Folklorist guilds are located there. Also the home for several notable NPCs, such as Saint Damogran and Origo, and several quests like Robbery in moonlight and Sewer ring.
Arelium dungeons
Asylum midbie 13
Batcity A cakewalk unless the explorer choses to attack the wandering monsters, nearly all of which can be handled one at a time by a low level character, but things can go wrong, horribly wrong. Monsters pop in groups but begin to wander after being visited by a player, trying to kill one monster in a group may entice another to join in. Some monsters in this area vary from easy to highly skilled; use consider. ~110 rooms plus 64 in the walls
Beastlands Newbie/lowbie area A cute area aimed at newbie/lowbie level players. A rather safe area, if you avoid annoying any "named" monsters/NPCs. Due to abundance of tiny, easily killable monsters, it has become popular among players of certain guilds, who are interested in readily available organs, souls, or other such things.
Bigeaul 12+++
Bunny valley Low 9 explore rooms and the valley with virtual map
Butterfly farm Small area, with activities available for newbies to midbies. 16+
Cathedral of Dr. Kilrathi The compound of Dr. Kilrathi, a fairly old area with some funny descs, eg. Jimmy Hoffa's.
Caverns of Undying Mostly highbie parties. Caverns of Undying was originally coded by Zoso and later expanded twice by Merri. It is almost solely filled with aggressive undeads and evil mobs, most of them being big enough to be a real danger for newbies, thus not recommended for beginners unless you have invisibility (for some parts) and quick fingers. It is home for a couple of ~1m-class mobs, including Moreod, the master vampire.
Chessboard
Circus Mostly a newbie-friendly area. Circus is Nalle's 2nd area. It is a quite newbie-friendly place that includes the area quest a day at the circus. It was recoded by Ggr in January 2013.
Conifer forest
Dark castle Newbie solo, new newbies might want to party for the Commander. Nalle's first area, home of the area quest Intrigue at dark castle.
Digga's Domain From solo to 9man A quite big area with few subareas, if you want to call them that. Digga's includes the city of Raven, a troll cave and a newbie pond area. Level quests 17 Platter, 51 Magic tower and 70 Silver battlesuit are in Digga's. The joining room for Barbarian guild is hidden in Digga's.

GUILD Runemage (west) May be explored by anyone Location of the The Faculte of Runemagi, the Runemage guild. quite a few rooms
Gnomish Airship The Gnomish Airship was created by Merri. It is the first of several related areas that he is planning and there will be a quest that runs through multiple areas. If you are over level 50 then you will take 400ish psi damage every once in a while. Kind of a soft level limit. Psi prot should soften this. This is a good newbie area for both cash and experience. The level you enter on is the 3rd floor of 5 total. The 3rd floor is suitable for newbie solo but soloing everything on the 3rd floor gets tough. There are tracks and secret doors. Don't expect to find anything other than the entry level without looking and don't expect exploration to be safe.

Areas on Lucentium

Area Difficulty Description Size Coordinates}
A Tale of Two Towers Midbie solo. Midbie to Highbie party for Questing. Adventurers of BatMUD,

In the forests of Lucentium, there is an old realm. This realm is the home to the Brackenbog Gnomes and the K'ar D'athu Dwarves and has forever been under the shadow of the Black and White towers. While these factions are seemingly always in disagreement, there is a greater enemy at their doorstep.

The Black Wizard Vebahn and the Black Tower's Servants have drawn the attention of Morrigaine the White in a most unfavorable way. The Black tower has been rumored dabbling in summonings from Dark Planes unknown to the realm of BatMUD. Morrigaine the White Wizard, protector of the realm has a sworn duty to ensure safety and peace.. but the White Tower is in need of assistance. Adventurers, will you respond to the White Tower's call for help? Prove yourself by first gaining entrance to the White Tower. Only then will you gain the trust of Morrigaine.

Beanstalk "You are standing at the top of the beanstalk and feel dizzy as you look down to the ground. Everything down there is so tiny you can't distinguish the differences between things." <20
Brotherhood of Sorcery (area) Something for almost all levels, although it can get dangerous pretty fast for very small players if you stick your nose into places where it doesn't belong... not that there's much to kill for newcomers in the first place though, just a couple of really small mobs here. Mid- to high-level players can often be seen doing exp here, and highbies shouldn't have much problems on any monster on this area, given that they have some sort of party and hands. Brotherhood of Sorcery is an area located in Lucentium. On the old map before The Ages of Exiles it was among other things a part of a cash run together with Temple of the Twisted Prophecies. It's the home of the infamous Demilich Ogaitnas Iuqnarf, lords Law and Chaos among other mid-level monsters that occupy the elemental plane of the area, and a bunch of smaller mobs.

Commonly also known by the name "adachain", as one has to climb an adamantium chain to reach the island where the Brotherhood of Sorcery lies.

Dozens, probably under 100 though
Catfolk tree most rooms can be explored by a newbie with moderate skills, most monsters can be handled by a newbie party. The racist catfolk may attack on sight if the character is not a catfolk, but it can be evaded by most players or killed by a small newbie party. The catfolk tree is actually a village that consists of six trees and bridges connecting them. As well as other Shinarae's areas it includes nice amount of little details and secrets.

Oystria Medium, some mobs midbie-soloable, some require or at least benefit from having a party. Underwater city inhabited by crab-people. Only accessible via a ship.
Public gardens Newbie solo. An area full of small monsters with juicy organs. Each room has also herbs growing in them. 45 rooms
Pyramid Definitely not for newbies. Bigger midbie parties (6-9 man), or highbies (3-9). Nerves of steel recommended for some of the opponents, and carefulness due to the nasty traps. A generally nasty place, filled mostly with undeads of varied sizes and difficulty. There are also traps, and many of the nasties block and track. There are two major eq monsters, Medusa and Z'ragore, though the latter currently (as of August 2011) has no eq. Several smaller mobs also have stat items, though much less interesting ones.
Ruins of Astacia Aimed for high level parties, very hard area if you don't know what you're doing; newcomers without knowledge will die. Virtually nothing to kill for any newbies, not solo nor in party. Powerful highbies who are familiar with the area might have something to solo though. Mardus' first and only own area (as of December 2012). Perhaps best known as the home of Plague monk, which can randomly wear a very popular mage/psi legging. Area quest Rise of the verminkin is also located here. At least several dozens. Only two are accessible if you don't know how to proceed.
Satyr forest Small area full of satyrs and pirates around 50
Shipwreck
Silver lake Silver Lake has a hodgepodge of shops which offer a wide variety of special ship related upgrades. Located in the realm of Lucentium, Silver Lake is unreachable except by ships. Swimmers are barred entrance due to the forcefield which surrounds it. Be careful to sail fully into the dock, otherwise you might jump into the forcefield when disembarking and be painfully banished, rendering you unable to reach your ship.

The shops in Silver Lake vary both in how often they are open and in their prices. All of them have a base price for their goods, but what they are willing to sell for on a particular day depends on a number of factors. The shop you should probably watch out for is the forge shop, since prices there can vary from the base of 50k to over 100k. You must dock your ship for the shopkeepers to be able to add in most of the features they sell.

The city of Stagira Small area (80 rooms) that has two subareas, having lots of aggro birds, about half of them undead. If you use hostile spells or skills against any of the guards or quest monsters, they will all become aggressive towards you. Stagira is also home of the level quest 46: return the chest. 80
