Horsehead Mountain (AKA Snootlings)

Area Info

Dirs: A short distance north of the chessboard. From west-Kutanakor, head about 20 north to the cleft in the mountains.

Coder: Malitrius, 1997-8

General Descrip: Fun quest area with lots of nasty surprises. Bring some tough friends along for the fun.

Malitrius has this to say:
Horsehead mountain is my first area and the first version of the area was coded during the summer 1997. The additional parts were done 1998 I guess. Can't really recall what was in the first version and not. But I bet you can figure that out yourself by just looking for parts with a lot of typoes and that would be parts from the first version. The first version was approved by Shadowjack and it must have been a nightmare to approve. The area was coded by a newbie wizard (me) without any clue and not much help from anyone, so it had bugs and typoes all over it. The area is a patchwork of influences and I've stolen ideas from a lot of places. Guess the biggest influence is a RPG adventure we played when I was young that was called 'Svavelvinter' (Sulphurwinter). You should be able to find a sulphur mine with a dragon and tower in the middle of a crater there at least. The area seem to be extremely popular among certain group of people that know the area really well. But for people that don't know it well it is usually refereed as just being really dangerous (I bet that the ogre that you can't run from is the biggest reason for that). The area has a lot of storytelling in it, if you care to read the books and notes that are placed here and there in it. This area is level quest 69.

Difficulty: lowbie/midbie solo/parties

Area Size: over 60 rooms
