The Gloomy Forest is a dark and dangerous forest, located inbetween the Sto Plains and the Ramtops.


Nearby to the east is Ohulan Cutash, while a longer way to the west is Skund Forest.


As the name implies, Gloomy Forest is very poorly lit, thus some form of light source is vital when exploring. Paths within gloomy forest tend to be short, frequently crossing, and winding. There are a couple of hidden exits relating to the bandit camp area.


There are three main areas in Gloomy Forest:


There are various dangers to be aware of in Gloomy Forest:

  • Autoattacking NPCs:
    • Very powerful giant spiders (see below) attack anyone who ventures from the 'safe path' through the central forest.
    • The bandits in bandit camp will attack on sight anyone who they believe not to be a bandit.
  • There are various traps around the bandit camp, which can lead to damage or death.
  • Attacking the druids in the druid circle will result in them inviting you as a guest of honour to one of their bonfire ceremonies. You will find that you burn well. The druids in the circle do not, however, care about you attacking their brethren in the central forest area.

There is a 'safe path' through Gloomy Forest. Players who remain on this path will not come to any harm. The MUD will warn you if you stray from the path.


The following shops can be found in Gloomy Forest:

  • A shop between the main forest and the bandit camp sells various miscellaneous items useful to adventurers. Notably, it sells lockpicks.
  • A shop inside the druid circle sells various druidic items.


The following NPCs live in Gloomy Forest:

  • Giant spiders lurk just off the safe path in the central forest, and are infamous for their powerful poison.
  • Trees of various types can be found in the central forest.
  • Druids are in the central forest and druid circle area.
  • Bandits can be found inside and guarding the bandit camp.
