Description and Map
Not shown on above map
Ludibrium is a subcontinent of Ossyria, located over Ludus Lake in the MapleStory world. It can be accessed by riding the flying train, located in Orbis. It is entirely made of Lego Blocks, thus many players give it the nickname "Legoland" or "Toyland". Ludibrium also hosts a large amount of monsters, which are mostly based on toy-like figures. In the MapleGlobal and MapleSEA version of MapleStory, Ludibrium has been one of the old additions. Ludibrium was added in MapleGlobal in March 2006.

Ludibrium is home to many new quests, NPCs, and items. The design of the monsters is different than those on Victoria Island, and most of Ossyria for that matter, as they match the block and factory backgrounds of Ludibrium. Therefore, most of the monsters are block-like, toylike, robotic, and/or have something to do with mechanics (think legos and maple mixed together). Some examples include the Block Golem, King Bloctopus, Klock and Panda Teddy.
To get to Ludibrium
Ludibrium can be accessed in three ways. You can take the flying train from Orbis Ticketing Booth, ascend Eos Tower or Helios Tower from Omega Sector or Korean Folk Town, respectively. The train leaves every 10 minutes on the hour. In earlier versions of the game, there used to be a fee for the train. However, it is currently free.

There are many attractions and quests in Ludibrium. Here is a list of some of the important areas within the sub-continent.
Ludibrium Party Quest
One of the main quests in Ludibrium is the Ludibrium PQ. You can find it in the Eos Tower, 101th floor. This Party Quest provides a change of pace in training, and can be very challenging. The boss of the PQ is Alishar, which can be very difficult to defeat in the early levels. It can summon Chronos, Master Chronos and Platoon Chronos. The Ludibrium PQ is only available to those levels 35-50.
Ludibrium Maze Party Quest (Not available in MapleSEA)
A lvl 51-70 party quest found in the middle of the main Ludibrium map, Ludibrium Maze PQ, also known as LMPQ, is a short party quest (especially compared to Ludibrium Party Quest) where players kill a variety of monsters summoned by breaking boxes found within the 16 rooms. This PQ gives very good rewards, including scrolls, and is a popular choice for players short of money.
Ludibrium is also home to Eos Tower, similar to Orbis Tower of Ossyria. However, Eos Tower contains 101 floors of various sizes compared to Orbis Tower's 20 floors. You enter the tower from Ludibrium, beginning in the 100th floor. On the first floor, there is a portal leading to the Omega Sector: Safety Zone (newly released in MapleSEA on version 0.33; released to MapleGlobal on version 0.24). It is an area full of aliens.
New to MapleStory's version of Ludibrium is Helios Tower, located on the right side of the town. Much like Eos Tower, it contains 100 floors, but only the 1st, 2nd, 99th, and 100th floors are truly accessible. An elevator that runs from the 2nd to 99th floor carts users much like the ship system does between the top and bottom areas of the tower. A library is located at the bottom of Helios Tower, containing a book that takes people to Korean Folk Town. A portal is located via climbing UP Helios Tower, which will eventually lead to Elin Forest.
Also recently implemented in MapleGlobal, Papulatus Clock is a monster commonly referred to by most Global players as "Clock Boss," and is Ludibrium's boss monster. This is not to be confused with Alishar, Ludibrium's PQ boss. Much like Zakum (but on a lower scale), a user must complete a series of quests within the high-level areas of Ludibrium. These quests must be done in sequence, and once they are completed and the player is level 80, they will be able to fight Papulatus by going to "Deep Inside of Watch tower," which is located between the maps of Gatekeepers and Thanatos. In comparison to other boss monsters, Papulatus is the fourth strongest boss monster in the game: stronger than Crimson Balrog and Pianus, but weaker than Zakum , Pink Bean and Horn Tail
