Zanaris is the Fairy Kingdom, and obeys a very different set of rules from the rest of RuneScape. The grass seems to glow, the animals can speak, and humans are very much in the minority - probably because most of the humans believe Zanaris to be a myth, nothing more than a story to tell their children at night. The city also looks nothing like most cities or towns: the fairies live in tiny houses built in the trees high above the surface, but unlike the gnomes - who also live in trees - there are no ladders; after all, who needs ladders when they can fly?
The city is ruled by the Fairy Queen, who does an excellent job running the city as well as making sure that plant life in the normal world grows properly. At times, though, the Fairy Queen is 'indisposed', at which point the Fairy Godfather steps in.
The main entrance to Zanaris is somewhere in Lumbridge Swamp, but the precise location - and how to enter it - is known only to a few. After you have found the Lost City, you can also get there through the Abyss by entering the cosmic portal, or by using the fairy rings if you have completed the fairy quest series.
The only shops in RuneScape that stock dragon longswords are in Zanaris, which makes the shopping unique among all the cities and settlements of the world. They are not cheap to get access to, though, as you must pay a diamond as entry to the market.
There is much to see in Zanaris aside from the shopping, such as the Evil Chicken Altar at the entrance to the city. More disturbed adventurers may even enjoy paying to homage to that ancient and foul fowl.
The Cosmic Altar is in the south of the city, and this is where visitors from the Abyss will begin their escapades through the Fairy Kingdom.
West of the wheat field in the centre of the city is a cow wheel, which is like a windmill but, as there are no winds underground, it is driven by a cow.
Upon completion of the Sir Amik Varze portion of Recipe for Disaster, a player can use a raw chicken on the shrine near the city entrance to get to the Evil Chicken's lair, which contains several Black Dragons. This is a common destination for player that have Black Dragons as their current slayer task.
