The Old North Wood used to be an "old-style" explorable area similar to "Explore the realms at random", "Have a random encounter here", and Tarkhald Crypt. On 12 June 2010 it was updated and now uses the new exploration mechanics.

Old Mechanics Edit

You can explore as many times as you like. The deeper you go, the more probable is to find an enemy or an interesting encounter. You can exit safely from wherever you are, after a 1-100 random check + Mind*0,5 + Spirit*0,5 + Luck*0,25 (34 is a win). If you fail the roll, you will need to continue to explore (or visit a previously discovered location) 6 times before you can try to exit again.

The levels of deepness and how many explorations you need to pass from one to the next are:

  • Just a little way (initial)
  • Quite a ways (10 explorations)
  • Deep (15 explorations)
  • Very Deep (20 explorations)
  • Dangerously deep (25 explorations). There is no deeper than this.

Encounters Edit
