The very name evokes thoughts of peace, freedom, safety and security. Undoubtedly, the former Illsigi slaves who founded the city surrounding a tiny fishing village dreamed of such when they named their new refuge. Today, their dream is as dead as the Illsigi Empire from which those slaves fled. Sanctuary was discovered by the Illsigs, absorbed into their empire, and became the largest trading city in the south. Decades later, the Great Pass was opened through the northern mountains, and the caravans stopped coming. The once great city fell swiftly into decay. Sanctuary became the home of the outcast, the dispossesed, those who simply had nowhere else to go. Now the Rankans have come, determined to stamp out all vestiges of the old Illsig Empire. Sanctuary? Oh the irony. A den of thieves, both highborn and low. A cesspool of intrigue, from government bureaucrats to priests, from Mages to the lowliest Downwind beggar, where one is more likely to find a dagger in his back, or poison in his drink, than prosperity. If you must go to Sanctuary, book passage in New Thalos on a ship crossing the Dragon Sea, or follow the road across the Floodland from Skara Brae.

Osmium has provided a very accurate representation of the Thief City Sanctuary from the Thieve's World series.  A must visit for any serious JediMUD adventurer.

General Zone Strategies:Edit

This is a large zone that is fun to explore in mid-level groups or as a solo adventurer.  While the equipment that loads here is mostly low to mid-level and has become obsolete by newer zone loads,  The Mace of St. Cuthbert used to be the best weapon for good clerics but has been replaced by McGriff's Bat.  The engraved brass bracers are great low/mid level +2 dam armwear.  Pieces of the Ephod and other constructible parts load here.   The krrf (or drug) water container loads here.  The talisman of the void loads in the Abandoned Cathedral sub-zone.  Mystical silk leggings load here on Mizraith.
