How to get here

A picture of the Isle of Fright Ferry, with a Speedboat nearby

Bentnob is the most exciting city on the Isle of Fright. There is a ferry service from Brighthelm to the Isle of Fright, so you do not need your own boat to visit for a relaxing weekend. You can find the pier near Brighthelm at 41E 48S, with access from the main southern road at 41E 43S. The ferry service costs 2000 gold and 100AP to get there, and 1000 gold and 100 AP to return to the mainland.

If you DO have your own boat, you may depart from the mainland on the beach square on the right of the ferry terminal. Pull your boat into the river just to the east of the island-side terminal. (You need to disembark before you can walk out of the river). The trip between the mainland and the island should be only 3 squares. (Use you a Map if you have one; you should be able to see the island from the mainland). However, watch out for the gulls that hang around the island-side ferry terminal. Do note that if the bridge network is intact, there will be a pedestrian bridge on these 3 squares, which may interfere with the launching of boats.

Pedestrian access to the Isle of Fright via the bridge network may be initiated from the Ferry landing (to the north), or from Holiday Island (to the east), or from Bombadier Island (to the south), depending on which parts of the network are currently intact.

A teleporter in Valhalla also allows for convenient visits to Bentnob.

Once you've arrived at the Isle of Fright, head directly south from the Ferry landing (following the river until it ends), then go east three squares and you'll find yourself in Bentnob.
