If you want a map of a portion of MUME, you have to draw it yourself. We want to encourage people to explore the game. A few pre-drawn maps of trivial areas (such as Bree, the Shire) exist in ASCII and can be bought at a local grocery or travellers shop.
The MAP command is used to view your nearby surrounding areas. Several options exist in order to view specific things:
MAP ROOMS: Displays your surroundings, only works with good visibility. MAP WEATHER: Displays the nearby weather, see HELP WEATHER for details. MAP FOG: Shows fog in the nearby zones.
These maps have the following key:
A Ingrove T Tharbad B Bree W Troll Warrens C Caras Galadhon X Your current location D Dwarven Homes Z Zaugurz Outpost E Edoras F Fornost % Swamps G The Grey Havens * Forest H Helm's Deep : Plains, Fields I Isengard = Bridge M Moria ? Zone under construction N Dol Guldur ^ Mountains O Orc Caves ~ Hills R Rivendell
MAP DARKNESS: Shows the influence of Sauron in nearby zones.
This map has the following key:
+ Good zone. Sauron's influence is actively repelled . Neutral zone - Evil zone. Sauron's minions are most often encountered here = Zone under the influence of Sauron's Darkness (treated as an evil zone, until the darkness dissolves)
* All map commands may be abbreviated.
* The GLOBAL option can be used in all commands except MAP ROOMS to view the entire map of Arda for the specified command.
> map r Map rooms. > map g d Shows a global map of Sauron's influence. > map g w Shows a global map of the weather on Arda.
There are also external client applications (called 'mapper') that can help you in creating maps. HELP MAPPERS and RULES MAPPERS for further details.
