Exploration Badges

These badges are gained by going to a specific location within a zone... nothing more & nothing less.  To view your coordinates type in /loc  -- I have some plotted maps up for the zones but, not ALL.  Some of the maps right now are cut down in size to where the badges are within the zones and don't contain zone exits, hospital, tram and other markers yet.  To say the least I am not totally happy with these but, they are better than nothing for the time being. ;)  I will be redoing them sometime.
