The Thunderpeaks and The Gap

This area is very 'up and down' and I've represented that using diagonal lines. eg. from Base of a Mountain (Bm) you can go up to On a Steep Mountain Trail (Os), adn then back down again if you so wish.

There is very little to worry about in this area. There are a number of mobs that wander from place to place, and some are aggressive. They can't see invisible though and are quite low level. The same, however, cannot be said of the Roc. If you have flying you may enter the Ravine. From the Eastern Edge of the Ravine you can get to the Roc by E,N,D,W. Be warned however. The roc is very large and will swallow players whole that don't keep him bashed... and only half giants can. I can't count the number of times a missed bash meant two days getting all my equipment back over the years, but it's good xp for a small group.

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 9sws3ws2w2s2w3swsw4se2sw2s5w3s9w4s9e.
