    • Currently scheduled for Sundays at 2pm CST
    • Each Strangelands event lasts 2 hours
    • Strangelands is a Lawless Zone, meaning all players may freely attack each other or commit criminal actions against each other without penalty
  • When entering Strangelands, a player's current Stats, Skills, and Items are "stored." Players then adopt the Stats, Skills, and Starting Items listed in their selected Strangelands Template chosen on the previous page
  • When leaving Strangelands, a player's original "stored" Stats, Skills, and Items are returned to them
  • All players, even in the same guild or alliance, will display to each other with the name "a stranger" and will appear as Grey to each other
  • The goal of Strangelands is to end the event with as many points as possible. Players earn points through Survival and by Depositing Trophies

Skills

Detect Hidden - does NOT reveal nearby hidden players, BUT instead creates an arrow pointing to the nearest Tunnel up to (Detect Hidden skill) tiles away


Tunnels

  • Players should keep an eye out for Tunnels appearing in random locations
  • By moving over or double-clicking a Tunnel the player will be teleported to another random Tunnel location where they will be hidden for 30 seconds
  • Using a Tunnel removes both the entrance and the exit from the map
  • Every 5 minutes, all existing Tunnels are removed and new Tunnels are placed throughout the map
  • All players begin with a Tunnel Shovel, which may be used once during the event to teleport to a random Tunnel location where the player will remain hidden for 5 minutes

Storage Caches

  • Players can drop and deposit up to 5 Items in each Storage Cache. When a player dies, all items they have deposited across all Storage Caches on the map are placed into their backpack
  • Players can also use Storage Caches to deposit and score Trophies Unlike Tunnels, Storage Caches do not change their location once spawned

  • Harvest a Small or Large Mushroom
  • Harvest Rainwater
  • Broken open a Supply Container
  • Use a Tunnel

Trophies
