Sherwood Castle is the island on which a player starts when he or she logs in the game. The main feature of the island is the castle. In this castle is the Castle Guard, Lady Marian, Olaf Vermund and there used to be a Merchant.
The castle's keep, which is the only area where players are protected from being damaged by other players, has two portals, one to Haunted Palm, and the other to Frost Bite. The roof of the keep can be accessed by a ramp behind the keep.
In between is the entrance to the dungeon. Lady Marian is stationed to the right of the dungeon entrance, and Commander Brom stands on the balcony above. The castle has one very, very high tower that has a portal to Stone Circle Island , the Battle Arena , and the Isle of Heroes at its top. The Castle Guard stands outside the bridge leading from the forest into the courtyard. In the courtyard is a statue of a dragon, where players can attack each other, and it holds the ramp to climb up to the tower and walkway.
The tower was completely modified when more islands were introduced to the game. It now holds three portals at the top and is a lot more detailed than the original version. A popular PVP activity that sometimes involves every player in the room has each player choosing a color and battling for control of the tower. Another popular type of gameplay is to announce yourself the ruler of the tower, thus inviting experienced players in the room to fight you 1 on 1 for control of the tower.
Players enter the game here, or return here if they die in this teleport. A path leads from near the entrance point to the castle, this was intended to show new players where to go first. If you follow the path in the opposite direction from the Castle, you will end up on a dock. A pirate ship will come by every few minutes for you to ride on. The large forest beyond the castle's moat is riddled with many creatures, and, besides the dragon statue, is the only place on the isle where you can attack other players. The forest is a good place for beginners to train because the monsters are fairly easy to kill and there is lots to explore.
