From the desk of Bahamut@Chiaroscuro (jointhesaga.com 2003):

There's really nothing else to call it but an EXPANSION PACK because this is EPIC. It rocks so hard it killed a man. This is the culmination of a MONTH of work! I'm not talking about an hour or two every week, either. I'm talking about SOLID BACK TO BACK HOURS every day. I'm going to try and keep this to the point, so...

Here's what the CHIAROSCURO EXPANSION: THE WILDLANDS brings to the MUSH:

* 96 New Items (see following BB post)
* 2 New Playable Races: The Wildlanders and the Syladris
* A New 126+ Room Realm: The Wildlands
* 126+ New Room Descriptions.
* New Halaghi Area: Southlookery Outpost (in the northeast)
* New Wildlander Area: Crown's Refuge (in the northwest)
* The Jadesnake River: Fastheld to Crown's Refuge and beyond!
* New RarGen area: Wildlands
* 4 New Racial Quirks
* 11 New Gifts/Quirks/Faults (in total)
* Knights

It doesn't sound like much in a brief bullet-list, but it is! I can assure you, it really, really, really, really, really, really, really is. Now some of the rooms in the Wildlands *ARE* lacking a description, but this is mostly relegated to the Jadesnake River rooms and Stillwater Lake. Everything else is @described and polished to a shine.

MAJOR KUDOS is extended to Rowena, Kael, and Taran for helping me out with descriptions. Some more KUDOS is extended to Temple, who has written up some new skills (that haven't been added yet) and a few descriptions here and there.

I think I can leave it at that without going into vast amounts of detail and elaboration. You can +sinfo Gifts and such to track down the new quirks. I'll be adding the racial (Scale perks to people later.

What I will say is that the Wildlands is - true to something that Norran once mentioned a few months ago - Horse Country. Each room has a +travel direction of North, South, East, and West (it's a 14x9 grid) with a travel time of 20 minutes via +walk.

To put that in context, it'd take you about four and half hours to +walk from the Aegis to the Dragonspine Mountains in the north. There *are* variations, however, in that it takes 25 minutes to +walk uphill, and 15 minutes to +walk downhill.

Of course, if you find someone to sail you between Fastheld and Crown's Refuge (when the river is finally linked up, which it currently is not)] you can get between those two points pretty fast. It should also be noted that while the Imperials of Fastheld will (eventually! be able to leave and enter Fastheld when they like, the Wildlanders and the Syladris *will not* be able to enter Fastheld.

There are also things in the Wildlands that don't exist in Fastheld (like Argentite), and vice-versa. This should, *hopefully*, lead to interesting trade RP in the future between Fastheld and Crown's Refuge.
