The Northern Woods

This area has had to be the most annoying part of Shadowdale I've mapped to date. Rooms and roads cross over and over lap. Other maps are linked in in, what seems to be, an arbitary fashion. All in all I'd like to be left in a room with whoever designed this area and ask them how they designed it. Did they plan it at all? before they sat down at the keyboard? I guess if I get a look under the hood of SD one day I may have a better idea.

The area itself is pretty safe for Newbies and above as it seem to link Shadowdale to lots of more interesting areas like Rhyiana, Khmer and the Sacred Grove. I wouldn't risk the Grove unless you have fireshield, sanctuary and a host of Adepts willing to risk their necks either.

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 15enenene2n3en3en2e.
