The Abattoir world is quite large, and new lands are being discovered all the time by intrepid adventurers. Learning to explore is perhaps the first skill a new player should attempt to acquire, as a firm knowledge of the surrounding lands is a vital requirement in the quest for glory and riches.
Here are a few maps, compiled by the land's top cartographers. Hopefully they will be of some use on your many travels. Type HELP MAPS in the game for an up-to-date list of maps available to you.

Sadly, most cartographers are not as bold or mighty as adventurers, and few maps are made of anywhere beyond the safety of a city wall. However, word of mouth travels fast, and directions to most areas, especially the safer or nearer ones, are well-known. Unless otherwise noted, directions are given relative to Center Square in Saerdoun.
To get to Center Square from the Monastery, travel west to The Old Road, then generally southward to Saerdoun and south on High Road to the Square.
