Trinity is built around DFW, the three cities of Dallas, Arlington and Fort Worth. See 'news directory navigation' to learn how to navigate them. These cities are broken up into neighborhoods, which can cover an entire town and be many square miles in size. The neighborhoods contain rooms, which can cover entire areas or just a single building. Most rooms will have Places which can be an entire room or even a whole business.

These newsfiles are accordingly broken up by city and neighborhood. See 'news directory <city>' to view all the neighborhoods in that city. 'news directory <city> #' will list all the buildings in a neighborhood and their contents, where relevant.

For example, to view a list of neighborhoods present in Dallas, see 'news directory Dallas'.

To view all available rooms in 14: Oak Cliff - Dallas see 'news directory Dallas 14'

For directions on how to get around, see 'news directory navigation'.


The IC grid is split into three main cities - Dallas (D), Arlington (A) and Fort Worth (F or FW). To get to Arlington, from Dallas, Fort Worth or Player Nexus, go in direction 'A' as you would go 'N' for North or 'O' for Out. This will take you through the entrance that leads toward Arlington. Repeat until you reach Arlington. To get to Dallas, from Arlington, Fort Worth or Player Nexus, go in direction 'D'. Fort Worth is in direction 'F, or 'FW'

Each grid is further split into a number of squares. So, D1 is square 1 in Dallas grid, A3 is square three in Arlington grid, and so on. These grids are all square. To see which number corresponds to which area, see 'news directory <city name>'.

To get to D14 from D3, go in direction '14' until you reach 14. You will move in the direction of the quickest route to D14, passing through other rooms on the way.

So, if you are in A8: South Cooper - Arlington and you want to get to D14: Oak Cliff - Dallas, go in direction 'D' until you reach Dallas, then go in direction '14' until you are in D14: Oak Cliff - Dallas.

'O' or 'Out' from anywhere on the grid will lead toward OOC areas in the same way.

Directions are not case sensitive.
