As far as truly deadly areas go, the entrance to Darkforge is one (section 2.18). It is found in the central part of the map near the southern border. Darkforge itself is the second level of this particular dungeon. The danger level of the top level is not that high, but the down staircase is guarded by a steel golem. These are very tough monsters for a low level PC to defeat. A low level wizard who has trained the Lightning Bolt spell may have a chance but is asking for trouble. Another wilderness location that will kill low level PCs very quickly is the Tower of Eternal Flames. Without good fire resistance and other special equipment, both the PC and his inventory will be incinerated. See section 2.19 for more on the Tower of Eternal Flames. Shyssiryxius' cave is difficult for low level PCs due to the need for water breathing or high hitpoints and on-demand teleportation, as well as the presence of nasty aquatic beasts such as dragon turtles (section 2.13). Some locations, such as the Rift (2.22) and the Minotaur Maze (2.20), do not allow low level PCs to enter.
