The Newbie Area Museum is a location where you can visit what used to be the newbie area where new characters appeared and started their journey upon joining the mud.

Pumpkin Town has replaced this functionality, so the old newbie area has been turned into a museum.

Accessing

It is possible to enter the Newbie Area Museum from a spot on the Ramtops road east of Gloomy Forest and west of the Forest bridge which is west of Ohulan Cutash, very close to the southeast of the end of the old Ohulan-Cutash trail.

[road]
            The land is lit up by the eerie light of the last quarter moon.
            A curious collection of rocks is scattered all over the road, except where a narrow path has been made free
    # e     to allow carts to pass through.  Something shiny is just barely visible between the rocks.  Stands of tall
   eeeee    trees cover the ground to the south, southwest and southeast and stands of tall evergreen trees cover the
 ####@####  ground to the north, northeast and northwest.  Five miles to the south is the upper river Ankh.
   effff    A spidery ladder is hanging in mid-air, leading up.

Leaving

Taking the only exit available leads two rooms north of the Ramtops road west of Gloomy Forest.
