If Only I Had The Right Tools...

"A large sandy expanse of beach with so much driftwood scattered around that you could probably build a boat from it if you had the right tools." Is this a normal description for a square of beach? I've only seen it in this one place. [-70.591,+26.507]. I gave it some searching, and came away with 4 pieces of driftwood. It appears to have a much higher rate for driftwood than any other beach I've seen, as the description would suggest.--Wifey 02:31, 29 May 2006 (BST)

Amazing find! Log it as a separate location, and we'll try to work out the search odds. --Tycho44 03:36, 29 May 2006 (BST)

Dunes

I'm pretty sure that I saw a screenshot that featured a terrain called "Dunes" somewhere in the forum, but I haven't been able to locate it again. Has anyone else come accross it? --Lint 03:51, 30 May 2006 (BST)

The Dunes can be found on that huge beach west of Durham. As far as I can tell, they're the same as beach but with a different name. --Less Than Lethal 18:30, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Cave

It's not clear if the original editor was describing the "Dark Cave" by stating that there was a cave near Dalpok or if there is a third cave. --Lint 00:24, 1 June 2006 (BST)

My pirate, Patch, found a cave in Dalpok about 5 squares NE of Shubar. It leads into a short tunnel complex (which I have a complete map of). As possible discoverer, and possibly the first person to map the tunnel complex, can I name it Patch's Cave? I mean, I'm going to anyways, but it would be kinda cool if other people called it that too... :) --Less Than Lethal 18:30, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
Looks like I ran into this cave as well. The location appears to be [-70.429,+26.449]. --Lint 23:40, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
I too have found Patch's Cave and after exploring it to its end it would seem that there is no exit at the other side. "A tunnel under the mountain. It looks like there has been a cave-in. A large pile of rubble blocks the way." Perhaps the jungle at the other end must be cleared fully for the exit to emerge. JD 20:30, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Flavor text

Waterfall

Water pours down off the top of a cliff creating a huge waterfall which creates the start of a river running through the jungle.
Water pours down off the clifftop above into a pool below.
At the top of the waterfall, water pours off the edge into a pool far below.

Movement costs with and without Trekking

As we know, the game now allows all players, not just those with Trekking, to travel over d0 jungle for 0.5 AP. Trekking previously sped movement over grassland and beach terrain, too. (It now benefits jungle travel on d1-d6 jungle alone.) Can all players move over beaches and grassland for 0.5 AP, or are trekkers the only ones with those specific benefits? — Elembis (talk) 07:42, 6 June 2006 (BST)

Sandcastles

A lot of sand, with the odd bit of driftwood, some shells and stones.

Drawn in the sand is some writing. It reads “Bold as Love". A giant sand castle with three spires towers over you. A small sign reads "tears fall and burn the garden green”.

Stuck in the ground is a makeshift sign. It reads “here rests the sand castle princess”.

I've never seen this before. Any explanations? (ugh, wikiformatting is annoying) --Remalle 20:05, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

This was at [-70.150,+26.368], btw, if anyone wants to check it out. --Remalle 20:09, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
