Starting area on first-login. Spawn point is around centre-screen where the desert encroaches on the grassland.
To the noth of spawn we located a long deep ravine. This forms a good natural northern border, a head start on mineworkings and a easy place to dig-ion to survive the night.
dawn of day 2 .. a few dozen units west of spawn point, a lava pool provides a great local landmark and meeting point.
