Moonsea and the Wastelands of Thar didn't trouble me in the least when I was mapping it. I was hoping to join up a few areas by finishing this map off and I certainly have, but this area connects to a whole bunch more, including Myth Drannor (which used to be by the Quickling Forest).

None of the Mobs seem to be aggressive in these rooms and I'd say that it was pretty safe for most, low- and mid- level players. There are a few creatures to be warey of, such as a big Sea Monster on the sea, but these are few and far between.

Finally A quick warning about a Death Trap. There's a closed door in Deep in Cormanthor (Dc), you can open with with 'push door' to open a passage to the west. You'll find yourself in a small keep. IN the Keep of the Holy Cloth and Rose (Kh) you can 'pull trapdoor' to open a way down to a Death Trap, the Bottomless Pit.

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 15enenenes2enese5se3ses.
