Acacia Roads is a group of natural villages and desert temples, linked together by a scenic acacia-lined gravel road through a desert, separated by winding rivers. The area is home to an unusually high concentration of NPC buildings. The roads are noted for their scenic routes and gently curving bridges.
The road was added to link up the adjoining and largely unexplored natural constructions at the time, and encourage visitors and additional builders.
Central desert NPC village
The hub of the region, this busy desert village was re-paved by Riot upon discovery. There is a steep desert cliff to the north that the road winds up.
Desert NPC village across the river to the north
The road climbs over the mountain and overlooks a river valley until crossing it via a delicate cobble bridge, leading to a small desert village in the north.

Desert temple on the plains, south-west
The road continues west across a small bridge, leading to a desert temple out in the open, with a broad courtyard in front and surrounded by acacias. This temple was initially discovered by nosefish.
Half-buried desert temple further to the south-west
Discovered and excavated by Riot, this temple was initially buried entirely below sand and sandstone, showing only the corner of one tower. Subsequently claimed by fthtjyjy. Due to the difficulty of separating a sandstone temple from a sandstone hill, it was decided to expand this into the hill to create a dramatic hillside fortress in the desert temple style.
NPC village far to the west
The first part of the region to be discovered, this NPC village was first explored by Simmuel, and later re-paved by Riot but otherwise left intact. A road links this to the half-buried desert temple.
Desert temple far to the south-east
Newly discovered during the process of colonisation, this outlier was the last part of the region to be linked by road, with Riot and Palindrome7 sponsoring building effort by Ellen124 and Mystila to connect the roads.
Other connected areas
- Fortress al Drake linked to the east
- Acacia Glade link under construction also connecting two NPC villages and a temple to the East & South east.
- Sunrise Hotel connected to the southwest.
- Mushiana Boat Route goes through many of the rivers around Acacia Roads.
A Freedonia Railway System branch from Mini Avalon to Acacia Roads International Station was completed in October of 2016. This branch is as long as the entire original length of the Great Northern line from Spawn to ForbiddenOutpost. The Freedonia Witch Farm can also be accessed from Acacia Roads via this branch. A local line, directly between Acacia Roads International and the Nexus connection has been added in 2017-2018 (/st AcaciaNexus).
