PostPosted: Mon Dec 05, 2005 11:13 pm    Post subject: Area Changes (Eastern Thera)

These area changes mostly affect the EASTERN lands of Thera, with only a few minor changes in the west. Here is a full description of changes to the west.

Western Thera changes
* Unsiliel Wood is no longer in the West (i.e. by defilers)
* Tainted Valley is no longer in the West (i.e. in the orc area)
* Gwidry no longer exists.. period
* Haterl Road no longer exists
* Exile is now in the West, where Haterl Road began
* The Demea ship and bay is by the Rocky Shore

Now the eastern changes, these are a bit more extensive, and will require the use of the diagram (map).

+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+


As you can hopefully see, we've severed the link from unlit city to escismir e'gal, leaving that as a dead-end branch much like the way Shadar Logoth is a dead end. Also, there has been considerable restructing north of Darkhaven, most of which comes at the expense of the Forest Fareway. You will notice that Solace is now a pretty well connected area - several ways to sneak up on people ranking in this spot, and sooner than they're used to.

Summary of changes for the East:
* Forest Fareway no longer exists
* Outerlimits has been chopped up (i.e. made smaller)
* Graveyard link to unlit city provides more, and shorter, routes to Darkhaven
* Solace is now a hub (since its a city) with several ways out
* There is a brand new "Dragon Sea" area

We're not quite finished with the changes here, still a little bit more for you, in the form of several NEW areas.. we've decided to take a break to put some finishing touches on them for you. The maps of Western and Eastern Thera will be updated when those have been opened.

Credits (probably some more to mention here, but these are the major ones):

Burzuk - came up with the idea of completely replacing Forest Fareway with our better areas
Marsd - came up with the idea of linking graveyard to unlit city
Matrix - came up with the idea ofputting exile back in the west
Ronus - came up with the idea of putting Gasteride in Darkhaven
Ronus/Sethronu/Resatimm - pooled ideas to come up with new map
Me - the actual moving around of things and making it happen

Ditch the Void. The Void is dumb. Old Thalos doesn't have much use now either. Gordon the Brave could just roam Valour the way Tir or Dagnir do in Solace.

Anybody read any of Stephen King's Dark Tower series? All the area changes makes me think of that... I don't know why I had to say that.

When can we expect for this to be in-game? I noticed the map still hasn't changed.
