So someone caught up with MeanOne, in the Underworld, and got him to tell the new differences between and among the living, dead, overworld, and underworld……….he said:
“The Underworld of The Realm is a serious place. We have HTLAEH instead of HEALTH… it’s red… and it is much in the many times more of your own HEALTH… we have 25 times or more of what you upper-dwellers have. ANAM down here, purple, it regenerates more and more… it is a slowly, ever increasing number for us all… we figured there’d be enough room in 64 bits for a slow expansion constant to speed everyone along – however, the ANAM is not convertible to gold, as MANA CRYSTALS are.
The way to the Underworld was usually the same – a tunnel built into a bar – or behind a tavern – how you speak of these things – but this is in Fafnirville. It is a floating, castle-city above Fafnir’s Swamp. It is the gateway to all of The Realm. The Cloud Hopper was exiled from there, and all the world bosses come from there, over and over again, to teach us lessons. Everything here is backwards. The item names are all backwards; and the spells are all backwards. The only spells that remain entact are the Sorcery spells. All other spell circles are reversed… and yrecros is forbidden.
There is a slide down to Starrie’s dungeon. You must have Starrie’s key to open the trap door – to the heroic, subscriber-only dungeon. It is very difficult to ever leave, because it is an endless series of connected treasure chest rooms. Endless rooms of treasure chests, and in each chest, a Starrie key. There are also many doors, with different names on them. I am starting to learn their names, but you will have to learn them on your own. The labels make little difference, but they do decry at times, and under certain circumstances – a very real influence.
Finally, any object dropped from the monsters below taken above – turns into Mabonite. One to three pieces of Mabonite we have found. All the monsters are different colors, and DAY has turned into NIGHT. This is actually, the two biggest things we have learned. In the Under-Realm, it is always eternal night… and the monsters, forests, woods, dungeons, are all slightly different. . . . .
There is also a false ladder, and a third ladder, that appear to move around in the Fafnir’s swamp. The false ladder leads on and on, one Realmer just climbs, and climbs, on and on, forever and forever, into infinity and beyond, eternally, until they back down just once, and they `scape that ladd-er!! The third ladder leads to somewhere else, but we do not know where! Yet! More soon…..”
