Skill and improvement


A more robust version of the standard tent but without the item protection restrictions.


An explorer tent can be used by players as a spawn point, as temporary storage, and as a hitching post for one animal. To place the tent, right-click it in your inventory and select "drop". You will need at least a 2 x 2 area that is free of items for a successful placement.

You can:

  • lockpick and pick up other players' tents on PVP servers
  • Pick up other players' tents on PvE servers when they are unlocked
  • They come pre-locked upon completion, however, can be locked with a small or large padlock
  • Use it as a container that holds 100 items.
  • Place them in mines.
  • Place them on a deed you are a citizen of.

You cannot:

  • Dye tents.
  • Load them onto vehicles using the load ability.
  • Mend or repair tents.
  • Drop them on someone else's deed or perimeter. Doing so will result in one of the following messages:
    • You are currently inside the settlement of <Settlement name>. You may not drop your tent in someone else's village or perimeter.
    • You are currently within the perimeter of <Settlement name>. You may not drop your tent in someone else's village or perimeter.
  • Drop them on a tile below sea level.
    • The ground is too wet to drop your tent there. You'll need to drop it on higher ground.
  • Drop them within a Rift.
    • The influence of the Rift prevents you from pitching your tent there.

How to Give a Tent to Another Player

  • Take your tent lock off (with right-click).
  • Trade the tent to another player/character.
  • That player adds their own lock.
  • The tent now belongs to the new player.
  • Newbie tents cannot be traded.


  • The explorer tent comes pre-locked upon completion, however, the lock can be replaced with a small or large padlock.
  • To use it as a respawn point on PvP servers, it must be placed in your kingdom's area of influence. On PvE servers, however, the tent will work as a respawn point from anywhere that it is placed on the ground.
  • When finishing building it, the tent will drop on the ground, even on deed or deed perimeter.
