Surrounding the mountains in the middle of the four original cities can be found a circle of 24 standing stones (exact positions listed below):

Once registered for the quest (after completing the prerequisite Creature Survey) you may attune to these stones. Each stone to which you attune increases your MaxAP by +5, and you can then teleport between any two attuned stones for 20AP.

Does this mean that the stones are built in the ratio 1:4:9?
My God, it's full of Snarks!
There's no need to be snarkastic.

Times of worship and required items for Standing Stones are different for each character, based on horoscope. The list of items is always in order, but each horoscope has a different starting point, and there are more possible items than stones.

Another map of the Standing Stone locations can be found here.

(Why start at the 3 position? Probably because that's the conventional zero of measurement of angles in trigonometry, and the positions are determined by formula... also the circle has a diameter of 50.)

I Frodo Cocktail the hungry Earth

II Biblo Cocktail an unholy gout of flame

XXIV mesure of serenity violet light

It so happens that I kept track of what mine were. It cycled through "by the hungry earth", "by an unholy gout of flame", "in a puff of smoke", and "in violet light", from the top of the list to the bottom. Random4518 18:08, 11 July 2006 (BST)
