Rookgaard (Newbie Isle) is an island located in the bay of Thais and the first place players visit after creating a new character. It's supposed to teach the basics of the game and give the first taste of Tibia to new players. After reaching level 8 they 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 rookgard, if you reach level 10 on the island, you will have to stay as a Rooker.
Rookgard 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.
Santiago teaches players basics of NPC interaction
The tutorial gives basic information on client controls,
NPC interaction and fighting creatures. It's logged as in the The Beginning Quest Log and consists of killing cockroaches for Santiago, bringing branches from a dead tree to Zirella and changing outfit and trading food at Carlos.
It can be skipped by saying '
skip tutorial' to Santiago.
Rooked characters will also be able to repeat the tutorial, as they spawn on the tutorial island with level 1 again, and all quest flags are cleared.

Currently there are 13 achievements available on Rookgaard, with a total sum of 24 points. However, some of them require very rare items (i.e

Sword of Fury
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.
The Minotaur Mountain
A book in the
Minotaur Hell ( here) says the Minotaur Mage locked himself up. NPC Avar Tar claims this minotaur mage is frightened of him and that's why he has locked himself up in a room. The Minotaur Mage is also rumoured to have a connection with the lonely minotaur standing on a mountain ( here) near the Sword of Fury.
Minotaur Mage should not be confused with Apprentice Sheng, a Minotaur Mage boss that also appears in the Minotaur Hell.
There are rumours that it is possible to get to the
Ghoul in the Kendram Benson's grave (grave here and ghoul trapped here).
Some say the
Blind Orc ( here) can forge iron into valuable items.
