The Vaults of Zin is a museum located in The Wizard's Manse, located in NECROPOLIS. It is a multi-floored gallery of written books, unique and glitched items, Rep Cookies, and player heads. While Scampi_ and Aziroeth spend a great deal of time scouring the land for new artefacts and attractions, any help in expanding the collection is appreciated. If you have any items you would like to donate or sell, please get in touch with them. Donating or trading anything that makes its way into the display or collection will reserve you a spot in The Crypt of Decay should you end up banned!

Forbidden Knowledge

  • The Vaults of Zin is named after the Quake 1 level E3M2, which in turn is named after a location from Lovecraft lore.
  • Scampi_ decided to build a museum when he got hooked on collecting books and unique items. This started as soon as he joined the server when Bjerkeby gave him a copy of his book for free, and continued later when he noticed he happened to have a number of items that wouldn't stack properly.
  • The Vaults of Zin was the first completed attraction in NECROPOLIS. The method of displaying items is heavily inspired by the Freerdonia Museum.
  • The Vaults of Zin boasts a number of security features designed to increase the amount of grief necessary to steal display items.
  • If you accidentally lose an item of value to the chest collector theft-deterrent, contact Scampi_ for retrieval.
  • Those who sell large amounts or donate artefacts to the museum become Honorary Cultists. Cast yer eyes on that page to see the current members and benefits of membership.
  • The idea for this museum was conceived well before the building or town that houses it was. It was planned to be built in a fenced off section of spawn and function as a dungeon/deathtrap/amusement park in addition to displaying items. This idea was shelved due to concerns with griefing and terrain rollbacks.
  • If you have items worthy of inclusion and want to trade, visit the VOZ Trade List to see what is on offer. Artefacts are only sold in exchange for other artefacts, but not vice-versa and Scampi_ is willing to pay through other means if desired. Make sure to check the current inventory first to see that it isn't already being displayed!
