The world is broken up into different locations that your Folk can visit to trap Monsters, collect resources, or complete quests. Each time you travel to a new location, it will cost you energy - the further away the location is, the more energy it will cost to travel there.
Update March 6, 2014 - Free Travel
The free travel only works for chained quests, so for example if you have a quest that contains a padlock and is triggered by an NPC i.e. If Bashak gives you a quest, you will be able to travel to the spot for free. However, in the case of Eleusis you need to travel to an NPC to activate the next quest, so this will not count as free travel. Therefore the active quest must be activated via an NPC (With the first box ticked) it must also contain a padlock icon in that list. This is known as a chained quest. If you have a quest that does not have an NPC as the first requirement it is not classed as a chained quest and will therefore not allow free travel. - HBM Forum Admin
Below is a list of locations, broken up by continent and country. Each location page will list resources available at that location.
Searching for Locations
To search for a specific location, click on the map view, then on the magnifying glass to activate search. Type in part of a location name, and it will show all locations (including player homesteads) that contain those letters. Click on one of them, and the map will move to that location, with an arrow flashing over the correct spot.
