12.2.2 The Valley of Lodi


Like the land of Minia, the Valley of Lodi is a special place that exists only
for those level 20 and under(*).

What's There
Much of the valley of Lodi is occupied by the gnomish village of Gorshire.
There is a mining operation in the hills nearby, a network of caves occupied
by dangerous sentient wildcats, as well as a community of trolls who make their 
living farming in the valley.
Though all the quests found in the valley are fairly easy and accessible to 
those new to Achaea, two of the quests do require that you leave Lodi to 
complete them. It is further rumoured that there is a secret passage in the back 
of the caves, and you would do well to discover it.

While in Lodi, a new adventurer is protected from attacks by older adventurers,
and older adventurers will, in fact, quickly be ejected by virtue of one rather
large bronze dragon.

Getting There
If you don't know your way to Lodi by foot, and if you have use of the PORTALS
ability (only for people under level 21. Type STAT to see if you have any
portal trips left), you may go EAST, then NORTH from the location that PORTALS
takes you to.

Sibling dragons in Minia, Lodi, and Gheladan will transport newbies (only)
between the three areas.

IN MINIA: Find the dragon Auma (NE from the archway to Minia) and say, "Take me
to Lodi please." or "Take me to Gheladan please."

IN LODI: Find the dragon Poraeus at the entrance to Lodi and say, "Take me to
Minia please." or "Take me to Gheladan please."

IN GHELADAN: Find the dragon Lasuna at the entrance to Gheladan and say, "Take
me to Minia please." or "Take me to Lodi please."

(*) Not all those who are level 20 or under may enter Lodi, Minia, Gheladan, or
any other area restricted to newbies. Those who are sufficiently infamous may
not enter (see HELP INFAMY). Neither may those who have ever been offered the
chance to embrace class (see HELP EMBRACING). Nor those who have exceeded three
hundred days within the realms.
