Map Directions

Hawklor is a small village nestled on the eastern edge of the Hart Hills in western Tysa. Its citizens are primarily farmers and woodcutters who enjoy fruitful commerce with the cities to the north, like Trithik and Talinus.

This is where your adventure begins. It should be noted, however, that although many of the easiest adventures of the game are located here to benefit new players, this is NOT the "newbie zone". There is no such concept as the "newbie zone" in Sryth: easy and hard adventures are scattered throughout the Kingdom of Tysa. Be careful. If you want to know difficulties of each quest, visit Quest List and/or the appropriate quest page, although be warned of the spoiler potential there.

Locations Edit

Along with Hawklor's unique locations, you can access the small windowless building with a blue door, the Proving Grounds and Explore the realms at random here.

Hurk's Mercantile Edit

You can sell any item here. He offers 25-33% of the item real value, up to 40 gold

You can buy several common Misc items, including a unique Sea Trossk Fang. The use of this item, if any, is unknown.

The Plume Merchant (AG) Edit

After the Plume Raffle, a strange merchant arrived in Hawklor. He appears as "a ragged peddler lurking about the village square."

  • He sells the enchanted plumes I-V, for 16/32/64/128/256 AT respectively. They are the same items (same Item ID) awarded at the raffle.
  • Enchanted Plume (I) provides +1MR/+1SP/+1NV to whatever helm/headwear you are wearing...up to +5/+5/+5 respectively.
  • You can only purchase one, it's a non-refundable purchase, and then he leaves.
  • However, if you are willing to trade him your 12 best Aldvarian Artifacts, he cuts the price in half for your purchase, which is definitely worth it since Artifacts are a renewable resource and ATs are not. To make sure you get the best price, store 12 common Aldvarian Artifacts in one of your Dwellings, and make sure you only have those ones on you when you speak with the Plume Merchant.

Currently there is no deadline for the plume merchant. The GM has stated he will stay for the time being. He may be temporarily unavailable, though. We can assume this will be similar to the availability of the Grand Ashen Bow.
