Zone map

From elanthipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Zone Map is a tool that can be used to calculate direction and distance between two different rooms. It is of primary use to Moon Mages, but has application for other systems that work over a distance like familiars, gwething, the BEFRIEND verb, and viewing the physical scale of the world. See the Travel map for a not-to-scale overview of the major travel routes between locations.

Basics

Basic Concepts

  • Each room in the game is designated as part of a "zone." These zones have been said to represent about 100 miles of distance.
  • This zone designation is what is used to calculate distance and direction between any two rooms in the game.
  • Everything on this page is based on player observation about how the system works. As such it is only an approximation, albeit a good one, of how distance and direction between two rooms is determined. Most of the information was gleaned from the Coordinate Chart program.
  • The zones were determined primarily by triangulation using two characters and the BEFRIEND list. Confirmation of distance in many cases was done by using Locate based shifts and Moon Gating.
Note: Ocean squares are not included in the above map since the normal methods of finding direction and distance do not work while on ships.

  • Primarily used by the BEFRIEND, treasure map, and severe weather systems.
  • Any zones in the same row or column as a given zone are said to be due north, east, south, or west of that zone.
  • Any zones not in the same row or column as a given zone are said to be either northwest, northeast, southwest, or southeast of that zone.

Distance

  • Distance between any two given zones is calculated by using the Pythagorean theorem.
  • Since the game deals in integers, the result is rounded down.
d = floor [ sqrt ( x ^ 2 + y ^ 2 ) ] , where x is the horizontal displacement and y is the vertical displacement between the zones.
  • For those who don't wish to do the math, the table on the right shows the distances in a visual format.

Specific Uses

Telepathic Range

  • Telepathic items and abilities all have a maximum range given in numbers of zones:
Ability Max Range
Jadeite Gweth 1
Kyanite Gweth Adjustable up to 10
Albredine Crystal Ring Unlimited
Colorless Albredine Ring Unlimited
Thoughtcast Unlimited based on Skill and Mana

Shift Moonbeam

See the Shift Moonbeam spell for the minimum mana costs required for specific distances.

Moongate

See the Moongate spell for the minimum mana costs required for specific distances.

Astral Plane

  • Grazhir shards are marked on the Zone Map by dark backgrounds.
  • The name of each Grazhir shard is surrounded by parenthesis and is located directly after the area it is in for easy identification.

Familiars

  • The distance a familiar will be able to travel is based on both its type and the Warrior Mage's circle.
Circle Small Large Dark Fir
1 1 --- --- ---
10 1 1 --- ---
20 2? 2? 2 ---
50 3? 3? 3? 5
60 4? 4? 4? 5
75 5 5 5 5
90 6 6 6 6
105 7 7 7 7
120 8 8 8 8
135 9 9 9 9
150 10 10 10 10

Note: The numbers pre-75 for non-fir familiars need to be verified and are missing a few circles where they step up.
