Touristing in Quarterstone
After becoming a citizen through high house Rune in Chronicles of Spellborn my travels took me to the shard of Quarterstone. So far I have just done some initial quests and some time running around in the area.
Quarterstone is pretty much a city shard, with a couple of districts placed around the center area, the Oracle district and the big temple there in the middle.
When initially arriving to Quaterstone one lands (at least I did) in the Palace District, which as the name implies is a big palace area with gardens and greenery. The names of the other districts also are tied to some distinct feature, except for one of them. The other districts are:
- Fountain district
- Green district
- Arena district
- Pit district
- Statue district
So in total seven districts. The district which do not match its name is the Green district, which is something completely different and which seems to be the hostile district here – I was attacked very soon after stepping into the area there. My quests were in the Fountain district, I did not see any other quest givers when running around in the other districts, so that may perhaps be something that comes with higher levels. For now I just leave here with a few screenshots in the end here.
After running around in the area for a while I decided to head back to Parliament shard and jumped on a shard ship at Pit district – could not get a ship back from Palace district. The cost to ride in a cabin was 25 silver, which would have been a large portion of my income, so I decided to go with the crew instead – that was free. While the trip to Quaterstone was quite uneventful, the trip back had a bit more action. Pretty much almost directly after taking off with the shard ship it was attacked by a couple of pirates who suddendly materialized on deck and took me by surprise. Luckily they were only level 5 and the rest of the crew jumped in also, sp they were quickly dealt with. The rest of the trip was calm, but it certainly kept me on edge a bit.
I guess and hope that the pirates will scale in levels and with the number of players on the ship, or perhaps there will be different levels depending on which path one travels.
