The Outlands are what make up the landmass north of The Royal Continent. The Outlands are made up entirely of Black Zones, and is the only place where Black Zones can be found. This area is sometimes referred to as "The Black Zone".
There are five continents in the Outlands:
The Outlands can be accessed through Realmgates. The Outlands contain Portals at the Realmgate, players have a number of destination options depending on which City the Realmgate is located at. There is a total of 19 portals: 8 in Anglia, 8 in Glouvia, 4 in Cumbria, 4 in Siluria and 4 in Mercia.
Portal Lock mechanics
Upon returning to Caerleon or the Royal Continent (through a portal or death), unless the player took a portal in the last 30 seconds, the player will be portal locked for 10 minutes: The player cannot go through another portal if he has got this lock.
