The restless wanderer will never lack for new realms to explore. Mystic has 243 different areas at the last count, many of them written exclusively for this mud. New players start in one of eight temple cities depending on their race, but can move on at their leisure, roaming safely along the extensive road/river system joining the continents and towns of the land.

Many players enjoy mapping and exploring as much if not more than fighting and leveling. Some of them have provided maps for all to enjoy and benefit from.

If you have maps that you'd like to see included here, just drop the admins a note or e-mail. Include your URL, name on Mystic, and whether you'd like to remain anonymous.

Overview of the Realm

After the Mystic landscape underwent a major upheaval a while back, during which areas and transportation routes shifted into a more geographically coherent form, Fife prepared a rough overview map of the new lands, as well as agraphic of the new Mydgaard.

Johanna also drew an Overview Map of Mystic Adventure, based o the area layout as it was in October 1999.

New players start off at the entrance to the Mystic Academy.

The Temple Cities (Areas with "Recall" sites)

The temple cities of Mystic are denoted by astericks in the temple room title. Temple cities are places of rest and rejuvination for the battle-weary adventurer, and home ports for the inveterate explorers. Each temple city provides shelter, food, armor, a bank, hospital, and have all the latest technologies such sewers. They, like all realms of the mud, are interconnected via the road and river system. Players are encouraged to move out of their starting cities and explore - smoe of the temple cities are peaceful,others wild and unruly. The cities of Akaikiku and Stratz in particular, provide attractions more suited for players who have wetted their blade a bit.

They have guilds, banks, hospitals, shops for armor, food, potions, and dry goods, as well as handy, if expensive, blacksmiths.

In all cases the map shop is within easy walking distance of the temple. Go explore and find them youself! :)

Full Area list

Oyg drew a large number of ASCII maps with hypertext links for navigating from area to area. Oyg's maps of Underdark and Mega Maze First Floor are must-sees! The maps were then expanded and updated by Gorph and others, including newer areas such as the recently discovered continent upon where Anasazi is found.

Xeron mapped the Keep, Lost Valley, Wookies, Mega Maze, MegaMaze Basement & the Airy Citadel. He gives a brief description of each area, replete with warnings of aggressive mobs and the statistics on any notable items. Originally he also gave the choice of previewing one of his maps or downloading it in postscript form. He's done a beautiful job.

So far i have only been able to find these maps by xeron:

I have Xeron's info/advice on the following areas but unfortunately not the map images:

Below, you'll find information on each area - index number, range of suitable player levels, area name and author. There are other areas which do not appear in the area list when you type "AREAS"... what are they?? who knows! secret!

Some areas also have brief descriptions, to give the curious a better feel for what they might find, if they choose to strike out into the unknown and seek their fortunes along the roads. To see the description of the area you are currently in, type "AREAINFO" from within the game.

 Credits for Huistocical Explorers and Mappers

Legendary documents that are pending archiological experditions to rcover them!

Lameer

Lameer has created ASCII maps of all the low level areas and travel routes between them. Dwarven Daycare, Elemental Canyon, Kraig's Keep, Mydgaard, Mystic Academy, Shire, Thrull, the Sewers, and part of the river system are already posted, just to name a few. He also has a nifty search engine set up which allows players to look for areas by either name or level.

Protector's Clan

The Protectors Clan members have drawn up more than a dozen ASCII maps of various areas.

Larathia

Larathia drew some maps, but we don't seem to have links to them any more. She did however create extensives list of potions, pills, wands, and staves that she found on her travels across Mystic. The list includes item name, description, affect, and location, and should be considered indespensible to anyone who gravitates to the magical on Mystic. This information can now be found via our Magical Items page.
