Revision as of 21:17, 21 October 2010

A map is an item that can tell you approximately where you are in relation to the places marked on it.

If you use a map more than once in a row without moving significantly, you'll get the same result--you'll only reassess your position on the map once you've moved a bit. Tming may require reassessing your position on the map.

Commands

All of these commands use the adventuring.direction skill. For study, consult, and locate, your skill determines the quality of the information you get from using it. For adding locations, your skill determines how accurately you place them.

Study

study map

This takes 20 adventuring gp, and tells you where you are in relation to some of the locations marked on the map. It tells you approximate direction and distance.

Consult

consult map

This takes 10 adventuring gp, and tells you where you are in relation to some of the locations marked on the map. It tells you about the same locations as studying does, but only indicates direction, not distance.

Locate

locate <location> on map

This takes 20 adventuring gp, and tells you the approximate direction and distance to one location of your choice that's marked on the map.

Add

add <description> to map

This takes 40 adventuring gp, and adds your current location to the places marked on the map, with the description you specify. You need a writing utensil for this, and your degree of skill will determine how accurately

Existing maps

Each map is useful only in the area it covers--trying to use it outside of that area will result in:

You conclude that you are not anywhere on the old Circle Sea map.
