I'm not sure it is fair that I get a vote, but I have to say Andunor.

It really feels like something straight out of a series of novels. It has so much depth and is really just infinitely playable. It's complex, and feels really complete.

(for standing outside and just enjoying the view and birdsong I'd say the Earthkin Village)

Cordor. I'm very fond of large human settlements in fantasy settings and the non-traditional roles that it opens up for other races.

I love Andunor and Myon as well, but my all time favourite place will always be the Arcane Tower (though it's not a settlement).

Andunor is my favorite.
The compact nature of The Hub makes it a place you know Every underdarker will be at.
Every area is compact and easy to access.

Surface Experience
my first day on the surface i was killed with no pvp warning before-hand, by Boredome.
I never reported this unlawful pvp though.

Bendir, by far.

When I was a new player, I migrated to Cordor with about six or seven Earthkin friends I had met. Drago, Pippin, Ren, Suli, Azgarin, and a few others. While we had fun getting drunk at the Nomad, we eventually made our way up the street to Bendir.

I was shown the utmost respect and given plenty of tools I needed to succeed as a level 10 player with a 10 RPR and barely any idea how to emote. Gear was given, knowledge was given, and most of all, friendships developed that I still have two years later.

Bendir was the nicest place I could have asked for as a new player.

It's difficult to present any interesting moral connundrums for pcs when there's basicaly no morality, which is why I rarely run events down there.
Dilemmas come in many forms, and evil characters face plenty. IMO, an evil character in Andunor will have to navigate more of them than a typical good surfacer. "Moral" dilemmas also present themselves in the form of conflicts that arise in the course of adhering to one's faith, creed, or ideology, which most evil characters subscribe to some form of.

This is why my vote goes to Andunor.

Udos was cool with my rose tinted glasses on, but I think Andunor is the best thematically and the best designed too. There's just so much going on in Andunor it could be its own module.

Bendir has a lot of character too, but to me a lot of it comes from remembering how it used to be and how it's changed over the years. I get a little tingle in my heart whenever I look around there.

Myon is cozy.

I voted for Andunor because huge kudos to whoever the person/persons were that put that all together like that. It's just magical. I don't even play there much, but it's fantastic when I do!

I'm not sure about thematically, the underdark is not meant to be a place of unity where anyone can go and do as they like...but I understand why it happened. I still miss my Udos days though, where Drow got to be Drow and everyone else didnt matter.

Brogendenstein.

Very atmospheric and feels very dwarven.

It is unfortunate the often there aren't a lot of players about.
