Marnack's Mountain Cabin

This rustic log cabin is perched high up the side of a remote mountain top. Outside is a spacious deck built along two sides of the cabin that is very well suited for watching the sun set or gazing over the lands below. Inside, several comfortable chairs face a stone fireplace where a robust fire warms the cozy interior. The kitchen area is only a few steps away where both hot coffee and wine are at hand. Above is a loft area reachable by ladder where several beds await those who are ready to retire for the night.

The cabin's coordinates are ๐ŸŒ -2996,116,5283 (map). A teleport pad has been set up temporarily in the manager's office of Marnack's Mill for those wishing to visit the cabin. A teleport pad to return to the mill from the cabin is located outside at the south end of side deck.


Erstazi's Mountain Cabin

A cabin on top of a peak. Far away from people. Location: ๐ŸŒ 1684,32,1360 (map).


Och_Noe's Mountain Cabin

The cabin is on a plateu on the 'Dual Peak Ice Mountain' near Trap City. It's not far above the snow line and offers climbers an ideal place to rest on the asdent or descent of the mountain. The cabin is designed to offer up to four climbers a comfortable night's lodging and seven climber place for a short rest, but it's prepared to offer up to 24 places for a safe stay inside over night or at bad weather (10 beds and 14 chairs). As it's designed to offer a safe place for a short or long rest, there is only the really needed furnishing and no additional comfort like in a hotel.

There is at OCP a teleport pad to the cabin. The cabin is at ๐ŸŒ -2696,107,1200 (map) and has a safe route down from the mountain and several opportunities to climb to the tops. There are some teleport pads in the area, which allow - when used - a complete view down of the mountain. One of the teleport pads is near trap's cabin and the pads form a complete ring, you will come back to your starting pad when using all.

There is also a hiking path to trap's cabin, which allows an easy travel between both cabins.
