Florin is based on The Princess Bride, an oft quoted favourite of fantasy lovers everyhere. I'd thoroughly recommend watching it at least once for the sword fight alone!
There are two mazes in Florin, the Fire Swamp and the Sea near Florin. In each case I've marked the exits from each room with the room you'll go to if you take that exit. E.g.
7 tn | | T6-8 T7-4Going north from room T6 will take you to room T7. Going north from T7 takes you to the Tiny Island. East from T7 takes you to T4, etc.
The first part of Florin you come across is a little Village. There is very little to worry about here apart from the cows. The cows are very, very tough. Even Adept Half-Giant warriors with sanc and good armor have trouble agsinst them!
Once you've left the village you can head two ways either towards the Fire Swamp and the Sea or the castle. On the way to the castle you must pass through the Thieves' Forest. There are Hidden, aggressive mobs there (shadowy thieves) that will attack. You should also beware of the Death Trap (marked DT on the map) from from the aptly named Zoon of Death (Zd). You'll also find a strange Albino with a wheelbarrow. The wheelbarrow is actually a key and I think it opens a hidden door to the south of the Grove of Trees (Gv). I can't work out how to open the door and I'd be very grateful if anyone can work it out and will let me know.
The last point of not is a death trap in the Fire Swamp. The Snow Sand (Ss) is a timed trap. If you wait there you can become trapped for good, my advice is to skip through it as fast as you can. Enjoy!
If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 9sws3ws2w2s2w3sws5w2sws2w3s6wswsw5s3w2sw4s2w2s2w2nw n3wswsw2s2ws2e6se9sesw3s3e2n.
