Don't Panic!

Ever wonder where you're going, or how to get there? Taken so many wrong turns that you're probably back where you started? After a while, do all those damn trees start to look the same? It's a good thing we have GPS Units, eh? The reassuring sight of those incomprehensible numbers is sure to steady the heart of any misplaced adventurer. Now you know exactly where you are!

So where the hell is everywhere else?

Navigational Tips and Tricks

Less confused yet?

The GPS displays X and Y co-ordinates, like a graph. Step west, and the first number goes down; east and it goes up. Similarly, going north increments the second number, and heading south decreases it. To get to a given set of co-ordinates, the best method is often to move diagonally until one co-ordinate is correct, then move in a straight line along that axis until you reach your target. Just be aware that occasionally this technique may result in you walking into a mountain.

Roads

A fairly extensive, if rather variable, road network connects the settlements of Shartak. If you can find a signposted road, this will often get you to your location quickly. Just make sure the road isn't a randomly cut red herring, and don't sleep on the road - banditry is rife in many regions. A map of the theoretical road network can be found here, but some of these roads may not actually exist at any given time; the current Ubermap will show which ones are currently navigable, or if you don't want to rifle through for a good one, the best are listed here

Addons

Those of you with Firefox should definitely consider getting a couple of the GreaseMonkey scripts from the Community Portal page.

  • The Shartak Map Overlay gives you the option of placing a complete copy of the island map over your own in-game map screen, which is a huge help for those of you without GPS units. Use it to find your position relative to one of the southern towns, then go there and get a GPS already.
  • We seriously can't hype the Shartak UBER MAP enough. As well as automatically collecting data about your surroundings and using this to create a constantly updated map of the island, It gives you access to a satellite map showing your exact location, a zoomable, scrollable map of your local area, and an in-game 15x11 map below your normal 5x5 map. We couldn't play Shartak without it.
  • Whenever you have a GPS signal, the Shartak Camp Directions script will give you directions to each of the six towns and the shipwreck, as the crow flies. It's a great tool when you don't want to have to keep checking the satellite or plan a proper route.

The Quick Way Home

You can easily get back to your home camp from any point on the island in less than 50AP! If you're by the shore, jump into the sea and swim out to deeper waters, then splash around in small circles laughing manically until the sharks finally drag you beneath the waves. Respawn at your home shaman for 25AP and you're done! If you're inland, find a large, aggressive animal, sock it one, and wait for it to get you back. There are of course many variations on this trick, involving poisonous berries, angry farmers, swarms of killer bees, etc.

Locations, Locations, Locations...

This is a list of interesting, useful, or important locations in Shartak. Each is given a brief description, a set of GPS coordinates, and a link to the appropriate Ubermap satellite and map roamer pages. Obviously this won't be a definitive list, so everyone is of course encouraged to add new locations as they are found or created.

Settlements

Dalpok

This native village is close to the Shipwreck and thus a frequent target for pirate raids. It is a grim place. The area between Dalpok and the Shipwreck, known as Corsair Boulevard, is a constant warzone, and much fighting also occurs to the south, against outsiders coming up from York and Durham. Certain pirates refer to Dalpok as "New Amsterdam" and regard it as their own, although a land scam in '06 saw some pirates relinquish their claim to the town to a mad outsider called Maevar Raenick who unsuccessfully proclaimed himself mayor. Gridflay, Isolation, Vercingetorix,Stargod Tinxiweewee, ClickClick, Ropata are the elders of Dalpok, and the Dalpok Crownlands, with its gruesome Citadel, is the main clan, though its long halls are currently empty. Dalpok was once the home of Jungle Drums, the sole native newspaper.

Derby

Arguably the most isolated outsider town, Derby is generally quiet and safe these days (despite being the first target of the WickSick Headhunters) and makes a good base for hunting expeditions. Derby is home to The Hanged Misfit, run by THE MISFITS, who often informally police Derby's streets. At one time, Derby possessed a hospital, a hotel (the Hotel de Derby), a local newspaper called the Derby Evening Press, and a duelling academy, but only the duelling academy is still in operation, currently run by instructor Uther. A number of other useful institutions are scattered througout the town. Two successive governments ruled in Derby, the Eastern Federation and later, the Peninsula Federation. The nearby delta swamp is rumoured to be a lucky place to find heavy swords. Derby infrequently assists its sister towns York and Durham with various threats, and has cordial relations with Raktam and friendly pirates.

Durham

The Durham peninsula is dominated by Durham and by its northern neighbor New Haven, (once the Independent Republic of Fort Creedy). It was for many years largely controlled by the Durham Pistoleers, a police force that was disbanded in December '07 during the Durham Crisis. It is a frequent port of call for pirate traders collecting medical supplies for the shipwreck. Durham is the only town on Shartak with the first democratically elected leader, Governor Jacobi. The current village headman or mukhtar is Dani al-Ghazali who appointed himself in January '11 after an inconclusive election the month previous. Durham is home to several substantial institutions, notable Club Palermo, a tavern hang-out for mercenaries owned by Giovanni Machetti. Coordinates: [-70.648,+26.343]

Raktam

This native kingdom was in '06 the scene of a bloody civil insurgency between the Scavengers and the Raktamites and their allies, resulting in murders, burning of buildings, and extortion. This internecine conflict ended with the reform of the Scavengers clan in February '07. The village is relatively friendly to outsiders, helped by a pro-outsider tavern, La Belle Dame Saloon, owned by Jeanette Prosper. In March '07, Raktam was the starting point of the inaugural Raktam Race. The Queen of Greater Raktam, Blue Hummingbird, was the sovereign ruler of Raktam and its surrounding territories, through the Royal Court of Greater Raktam and its Commonwealth with the Independent Republic of Fort Creedy. After the Queen's assassination in '08, Raktam and its territories were ruled by a dynasty: SofaKing, the Queen's heir; Dappled Shadow, the Tyrant; Blahmicho, the Worm; culminating in the long and productive reign of Queen monaliza and her consort, Baraka, who were slain by anarchists in January '11. SofaKing has since returned to serve as Regent until a worthy heir can be found. Raktam is the centre of native politics and intrigue.

Shipwreck

The base of all pirates on Shartak, the shipwreck is dangerous and anarchic but conveniently compact. Visiting is a unique, if sometimes short, experience. The Shipwreck and the surrounding precinct was irregularly - some would say negligently - patrolled by senior members of the Pirate Defence Force of the Jolly Roger Gang, the Scurvy Crew of the Hellborn Strumpet, the 1st Imperial Privateers Regiment, and the Brotherhood of the Coastwho each meted out gleeful vengeance on recidivist pirate murderers until the demise of each of these clans. The main clan at the shipwreck is now The Bloody Legion of Black-Hearted Brigands, captained by the infamous Captain Vesuvius Low. There is a tavern in the galley part of the ship run by Captain Wolf, The Gallowed Pirate. A one-masted sloop or cutter, the shipwreck itself is known as either the Hellborn Strumpet or the Missionary Position, and its compartments and cabins are frequently haunted by dangerous ghosts. The view from the crow's nest is obscured by fog. Utility Bank once had a branch in the main cabin.

Wiksik

Wiksik is the most populous of the native settlements. It is not to be confused with Wicksick. Wiksik is the home of spiritual matters on the island, usually of a sinister bent, ably demonstrated by the Necromancer's Guild. Wiksik and the surrounding lands form the Kingdom Of Skulls, a native homeland whose people do not tolerate aggressive outsiders. Wiksik is a point of easy access to nearby Crystal Lake and the far North Eastern swamp. A regulalrly used road called the Armachu Trail runs between Wiksik and Raktam. In general Wiksik is intolerant of even peaceful outsiders.

York

The largest of the outsider settlements, York is a bustling and exciting town, except for pirates, who have a fairly short life expectancy within its limits. Peaceful native shamans are welcome within certain areas, primarily for their ability to exorcise ghosts. Nonetheless its relative tolerance is somewhat subdued by a proliferation of extremist groups such as the 1st Colonial Militia and the Order of Patriots who engage in assassinations of individuals within the city borders. This extremism is fueled by the fact that York is frequently the target of raids by various groups. York has a very long history of pirate invasions, attackes by mercenaries, and conflict with natives, which are detailed in the wiki. The town is now largely administered by 5punk.co.uk with the assistance of the long-established Colonial Police, and repels hostile forces with well-honed efficiency. York is by far the best defended town on Shartak. Once the host of two rather excellent newspapers, The Yorkman, and its competitor, the Shartak Financial Times, it no longer has any press. A small farming district once sat on the River Hazen, north-east of York, run by York non-combatants. A large heavy sword mining operation is in the River Hazen delta, controlled by York authorities.

The Grand Vizier's Markets, was established by the Queen of Greater Raktam, Blue Hummingbird, in December '07, in honour of her Grand Vizier, Neil Tathers and was in the southern quarter of Raktam. It consisted of a cluster of huts in the south of Raktam which may be used by any peaceful trader of any nation. Trade in the markets was tariff free.

Each branch, its bronze door framed by marble arches, is ostensibly neutral territory, in order to facilitate mercantile transactions, although this was understandably difficult to enforce. Both outsiders and natives were welcome within any branch of the bank - a cause of contention with the Colonial Police. The branch was operated by Archbishop Blackburne until his relocation of the branch to Derby in late '07 following a series of attacks by York extremists who accused the bank of funding terrorists.

Historical Sites

Derby

Port Breton

Three ruined huts near the Derby Swamp, not far from the road to York. As at November 07 it was a French enclave known as Nouveau Aix-en-Bains, and then was abandoned until a resolution in April '08 of a dispute between the Kingdom of Skulls and the Eastern Federation over the control and occupation of Midway Island. This resolution included the relocation of the French colony to what is now called Port Breton. It was the site of Casino Royale, a cathedral, and an administraton office. Port Breton was controlled by Baron Surcouf as governor under the mandate of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, and the casino was operated by Hercule Le Tof. Port Breton is rumoured to have been the home of an offshoot tribe of Raktamites who were converted by the French missionaries, but as the tribe was said to be exterminated by anarchists in December '10 and the French have seemingly vacated the ruins, it remains a mere tale. A French tricolour flag flies over the settlement, awaiting the return of its masters.

New Haven (The Independent Republic of Fort Creedy)

This ancient complex consists of three ruined buildings (a jail, armoury, and hall), two of which have multi-space interiors and multiple entrances. The Creedy Republic declared independence in early '07, electing President Oktavian as its ruler, and has a small but permanent population of both outsiders and natives. Since forming a commonwealth with Raktam in November '07, a Raktam garrison has operated from the armoury. The Creedy Republic often had border disputes with Durham to the south, and in early '08 this was the subject of a bitter guerilla war known as the Durham Crisis involving the Commonwealth, the Durham government headed by its governor, Ron Burgundy, the Durham Pistoleers and the 1st Colonial Militia from York, which resulting in the disbandment of the Pistoleers. In mid '08, the Creedy Republic hosted Shivering Timbers, Shartak's only functioning brothel, until its closure in the summer of '09. Following Shartak 2.0, Fort Creedy was claimed by Solemn and renamed New Haven, which for a time boasted the largest clan membership in Shartak.

Skull Island and surrounding archipelego

A large island sitting in deep water to the north-east of the main iasland of Shartak. Inhabited by cannibals, strange geological activity has resulted in a land mass which has an eery visual similarity to a human skull. Two lakes occupy the centre of the island, which contain fresh water. The most southern island of the archipelego is called Mandible Island, and several small islands strech between Mandible Island and Skull Island.

The northern river flowing from the beach west of the shipwreck, ending in Archer's Pool. The clan River Born Fury had their headquarters at the delta. The river was named after Shartak's most notorious pirate killer, Long Fin Killie.

Nihilo's Hollow

The catacomb complex found under the Sacred Space. The subterranean cave forms an unbroken ring, and so does not leave out from the Sacred Space. The only entrance and exit is the tunnel to Sacred Space. Although the hollow is technically in Sacred Space, the spirits of the Ancestors do not prevent aggression in it, and therefore players can attack and kill other players or NPCs. There is a fungi vein within the cave, as well as spiders that pose a danger to fungi farmers.

Named after Nihilo, one of its earliest discoverers, and the first person to ruthlessly kill another player in it once it was revealed that the tranquil spirits did not inhabit the premises. Originally called the Pit of Ouroboros, a symbolic attribution of its geometry.

Royal Expedition Field Hospital

Enemies of the Royal Expedition or their allies were more likely to be slain, though, as the expedition claimed this area as their territory. No longer in service.
