Terrains indicate what the environment in the room is like, whether it's a flat plain or rugged mountains, heavy forest or deep underwater. There are a number of possible terrain types, and there can be many in a particular room (an underground pool, for instance, or a road in the middle of a jungle).

Most races have combat modifiers based on the local terrain. This represents the race's comfort level in a particular terrain, and its ability to use the terrain to its benefit. A positive modifier enhances the effectiveness of all your skills, while a negative modifier will hamper your abilities.

You can check the local terrains with the 'terrain' or 'realm' commands.
