Rookgaard (Newbie Isle) is an island located in the bay of Thais and before Update 10.55, the first place players visit after creating a new character. It was supposed to teach the basics of the game and give the first taste of Tibia to new players, but now this is what Dawnport's for. Keep in mind that this isle is still accessible though, namely via Dawnport. Just say Rookgaard to Inigo, and you should be on your way here. After reaching level 8, you should talk to The Oracle to get to the Island of Destiny, though some players choose to stay on Rookgaard and never leave. Only players who are level 8 or 9 can leave Rookgaard. If you reach level 10 on the island, you will have to stay as a Rooker.
Rookgaard characters can open the Advertising-Rookgaard Channel to advertise all kinds of things. Among others, you can trade Tibia items, advertise ingame events, seek characters for a quest or a hunting group, find members for your guild or look for somebody to help you with something.
Currently there are 14 achievements available on Rookgaard, with a total sum of 25 points. However, some of them require very rare items (i.e Die) or a lot of money to obtain them. Note that when a character is rooked, they will keep their achievements so players on Rookgaard can have any achievements obtained after Rookgaard as well.
Scythe swung over your shoulder, sun burning down on your back - you are a farmer at heart and love working in the fields. Or then again maybe you just create fancy crop circles to scare your fellow men.
Adventure is your middle name. You spent much time in dangerous lands and have seen things others only dream of. You know your way around in Tibia - you are a seasoned adventurer now. And your journey has only just begun!
Achieve level 50. If you have already surpassed this level, just level up once and you should get it.
You and your shovel - a match made in heaven. Or hell, for that matter. Somewhere down below in any case. You're magically attracted by stone piles and love to open them up and see where those holes lead you. Good biceps as well.
Every city should be proud to call someone like you its inhabitant. You're keeping the streets clean and help settling the usual disputes in front of the depot. Also, you probably own a cat and like hiking.
Your local magic trader considers you one of his best customers - you usually buy large stocks of potions so you won't wake up in the middle of the night craving for more. Yet, you always seem to run out of them too fast. Cheers!
On a tiny island to the north-west of the Rookgaard town (here), there lies a Spike Sword called the Sword of Fury. Players are able to make it disappear by walking on switches hidden in the ground, but nobody has ever managed to capture it. The sign standing next to the island says 'Only the humble one may touch the Sword Of Fury'. It is rumoured that after making the sword disappear, it spawns somewhere else on the island. Some believe it has connection with a hidden lever in the Tom's shop.
Maze of Fury
A sign saying 'Maze of Fury' and a hole can be seen (here) in a cave in the premium area of Rookgaard, but it is not possible to get there as there are stalagmites blocking the way and the entrance hole is covered with unmoveable stones. Some say it has relation with the Sword of Fury.
