Places of Note

Dock Club

The Developers occasionally host fights and events here. Combat is not only allowed, but encouraged, in the Dock Club, as such Scent icon.png Scents for Assault and Battery don't drop within the boundaries of the Dock Club. Larceny is still possible so here and will leave Scents, however Murder is not allowed in the Dock Club.

Hall of Fame

The Swan Point Cemetery contains several statues dedicated to those who had the highest stats at the end of the old Plymouth, Roanoke, and Jamestown servers before the founding of Providence:

  • Statue one is dedicated to Binks of Roanoke - The first Salem player to reach 1,000 Humours. A man who could strike fear into an entire faction.
  • Statue two is dedicated to Khaz of Plymouth - The Great Wizard of the original and longest running Beta Server. He saw many battles. But did he cast many spells?
  • Statue three is dedicated to Darwoth of Jamestown - It was a trying colony, a testing colony. Yet one man destroyed city after city with ease. Even those he founded.

Providence Church

Un-Diseased pilgrims having at least 10 from Affluence Bonus Artifacts are permitted to enter the Providence Church. Here you will find a Mannequin icon.png Mannequin for quickly exchanging Clothing and Bench icon.png Benches. When praying (sitting) on a Bench you will slowly lose Black Bile and gain Faith & Wisdom icon.png Faith and Wisdom at about 1 point per second. Rumor has it that praying on Benches in the Providence Church may reduce the length of a Blood Moon icon.png Blood Moon.

Standing in the front of the Providence Church in is the local priest. Right-clicking on him and selecting "Cure Curse" and then "Cleanse Body" will theoretically remove any curses which afflict you for a nominal fee of 200x Silver Pieces icon.png Silver Pieces.
