Yeah.. it's not only a little artificial (depending how the sign is
worded), but also not very friendly.

Tessalating your areas so that they join onto reasonably close ranged
areas is just common sense - but you need to make it fit in with the rest
of the land too. For instance, if you have a tundra area, with small
animals on it (newbie levels), you can't really affix a level with frost
giants in it, if they're high level monsters, but nor should they be low
level monsters. Heh. :P
