Locations are placed more or less in random fashion within their respective biomes. Gateway locations bridge gaps between biomes and event locations. Event locations, on the other hand, are isolated and devoid of any random generation.
The following locations are common in every biome, found fairly often and in numbers. They usually simply contain resources such as Wood Logs and Odd Mushrooms, but are not unique and have little to no relation to the story.
Removed locations are areas that used to be found in previous versions of the game, but are no longer present in the current edition. They may have been replaced by something else, or may be reintroduced in a future iteration.
