    logs (effects)

    {1} {The guards are brisk at best and generally unhelpful: it is not unthinkable some may even attack you in future if you continue to be rude to them. You will need to win their respect, or the gratitude of their superiors, to change this.}
    {2} {You are admired throughout the Keep, though the Guild still look down on you and some of the more experienced adventurers and shadier characters now see you as a potential rival.}
    {3} {Your deed has won the gratitude of merchants and the notice of the Guild, but some of the Cavalry Guards are put out that you succeeded where they were unable.}
    {4} {You can now commit your larcenous acts without fear of reprisals from the Thieves' Guild, and have the backing of this shady organisation. Membership in this group is outlawed by the Castellan, though, and must be kept secret.}
    {5} {As a Guildsman you have the use of the Guild House and can trade as a merchant in the Yeomanry, as well as having the backing of a powerful mercantile organisation.}
    {7} {If you are spotted in the vicinity of the scene of your crime, you will certainly be regarded as a suspect.}
    {8} {You were spotted suspiciously close to a crime scene. Expect to be questioned by the Watch. Keep inhabitants are wary of you.}
    {9} {Despite perpetrating larcenies yourself, you have refused the advances of the Thieves' Guild. They will brook no rivals and continued thieving on your part will undoubtedly provoke a response.}
    {10} {You have been declared an enemy of the Keep by the Castellan: the Bailiff has issued orders to kill you on sight, and ordinary folk will react with fear and/or violence.}
    {11} {You are widely believed to have done the nasty with the Corporal, one of the most unappealing men in the entire Yeomanry. Your reputation has been badly effected. Many of the Guards guffaw as you walk past, others eye you for future easy conquest.}
    {12} {You have used violence within the Guildhouse: this makes you some powerful enemies. Other members of the Guild may even attack you, if you do not have sufficient reputation to deter this.}
    {13} {You have been formally accused or convicted of a crime: the Watch are actively trying to arrest you. Ordinary folk will offer you no comfort.}
    {14} {Your attacks on members of the Thieves' Guild has angered this shady organisation and they now see you as an enemy.}
    {15} {You have successfully brought down the Thieves' Guild in the Keep! The Castellan regards himself in your debt for this, and merchants are especially grateful, though the Watch are slightly miffed you did their job for them.}
    {16} {Slaying a dragon is a noble accomplishment, whoever does it. Expect everyone to treat you with that little bit more respect that you now deserve.}
    {17} {Merchants see you as something of an ally, though not one of them.}
    {18} {The Castellan has barred you from the Inner Keep. Not every Guardsman may recognise you to enforce this, but don't expect leeway from the Officers. Plus you are removed from (and therefore 'botch') any official quests you are working on.}
    {19} {Your services for the Temple of Hextor in Lord Axer's Thorp, and for the Lord himself, have gained you the reputation in the Thorp of a devoted disciple of Hextor. Followers of Heironeous will not be pleased, and may even attack you on sight.}
    {20} {The stench of a slave-trader cannot be hidden fully. Members of the Thieves' Guild and inhabitants of the Thorp are impressed - members of the Merchant's Guild view you with a vague suspicion, even if they are not sure why.}
    {22} {The rigid nature of Hextor's cult will not tolerate wanton violence that they have not instigated. By bringing lawlessness into one of his strongholds, you have guaranteed that the others will turn on you if only to save their own skins.}
    {23} {The Castellan himself awarded you this honour. It is recognised throughout the Yeomanry, and coming from the commander of the Keep, means the military will treat you with respect and assistance.}
    {24} {You have done an outstanding service on the Keep's behalf. The ordinary soldiers recognise you and do not think twice on seeing you in military areas.}

    You can buy an Ink, Quill and Parchment from Geoffrey (Scribe) at the marketplace within the Outer Bailey. If you use the IQ&P, then it can give you useful information about quests that you haven't completed.

    The noticeboard is inside the Provisioner's shop. You will obtain most of the quests in the game by examining the noticeboard at various stages of the game. You complete these quests by returning to Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) who is either inside the Pub or in his tower.

    Flay (Undertaker) provides the following healing services:
    Cure Serious Wounds (90 gold)
    Neutralize Poison (240 gold)
    Raise Dead
    Remove Disease (240 gold)

    How disguise works:

    Question: "Do all party members have to wear disguises or is just one party member wearing a disguise enough? Does it have to be the party leader wearing the disguise or can it be anyone?"

    Porteous (Provisioner) will reward you with a masterwork scythe if you complete the Suffragette City quest for him.

    As part of the The Leaky Cauldron quest, if you give Ricario (Apothecary) a Cauldron, then you have to wait 3 days for Ricario to make poison for you. You buy the Cauldron from Porteous (Provisioner).

    Ricario (Apothecary) sells vials of poison at night in his home for 50 gold each.

    Nobby will poison your weapon if you give him the weapon (either some common blades or flails) and a vial of poison and 50 gold.

    [When getting Nobby to convert rusty weapons to normal weapons]:

    Originally posted by Shiningted:
    If you use the vial on the druidic shrine, when talking with Lady Maeri, you need to select the dialogue option about a reward in order for her to give you Treacher's Glee as a reward for completing the Riddle of the Shrine quest.

    Hal Hommleter: "Only the Corporal has the keys to the warehouse, and you had better be a member of the Merchant's Guild or he won't bother to open it, though he does have a soft spot for those who can handle themselves physically" (hint: get the Corporal drunk so that you can temporarily steal his keys in order to get into the warehouse).

    One time when your party returns to the Keep, a Tracker (named Billy) will appear up on the lower left battlement of the Outer Bailey, fighting 4 watchmen down in the courtyard. This is the start of The Grassy Gnoll quest. As soon as you notice this commotion, move your party over near the 4 watchmen and wait until you see one of the watchmen display something along the lines of "Quick, get the bailiff". Then report what is going on to the bailiff, and agree to handle the situation yourself. The bailiff will give you a ring which allows your party safe passage through the Bailiff's Tower. Either knock unconscious or kill the Tracker, then return to the bailiff. You will receive 200 gold for completing this quest. The bailiff will tell you that the scribe will give you some scrolls for your service to the Keep. Talk to Hal (Scribe) who will give you a scroll of Ray of Clumsiness, a scroll of Summon Monster II, and a scroll of True Strike. Hal only appears just inside the Keep's main entrance during the day.

    Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) will give you his magic arrows and a jar of Keoghtom's Ointment if you knock Billy unconscious.

    Billy (Tracker) (32 HP)
    Bailiff's Longbow (masterwork composite longbow (Str 14))
    10 Arrows +1
    Cloak of Elvenkind
    Boots of Elvenkind
    Blue elven chain (may have been since removed from the game)

    If you give the small leather pouch and Garlic and Black Pearl and Spider Silk to Ricario (Apothecary) at the market, then Ricario will give you a Sleeping Draught (I suspect that you might be able to put the Corporal to sleep with this item), a potion of Protection from Acid (use this just before you fight the young black dragon), and a vial of Knockout Gas as a reward.

    Upon completing the One Big Harpy Family quest, Kepler will reward you by giving you a scroll of Warp Wood (this can be EXTREMELY useful at the Deep Swamp), a scroll of Calm Animals, a scroll of Hold Animal, a scroll of Delay Poison, a scroll of Barkskin, and a scroll of Magic Fang. Then Kepler will run off. You can meet Kepler again at the druidic shrine at the Northern Oak Woods, where he will be with Master Bratac (Archdruid) and Lorin (Apprentice Druid).

    Upon completing the Eight-legged Freaks quest, if you select the dialogue option "Spider poison?", then Flay (Undertaker) will give you a vial of Poison.

    Flay (Undertaker) will reward you with a Dagger +2, a scroll of Raise Dead, and a scroll of Heal if you complete the Au Revoir Grimoire (Flay's quest #3) quest for him. To complete the quest, you need to steal the Keep Wizard's Book from the right side of the circular room up in the northern-most (top) tower of the Inner Bailey and then give the Book to Flay.

    If you become a member of the Merchant's Guild, then the Guildmaster will offer you the Who's Raiding the Trading? quest. The merchant Guildmaster will tell you which NPC to talk to first, then each NPC that you are directed to will tell you who you need to talk to next in order to progress this quest. In order to complete this quest, if I recall correctly, you need to talk to Hal Hommleter (Scribe) (he's just inside the Keep's main gatehouse during the day only), talk to Bonaventure (Curate) (he's in the Church), talk to the Cavalry Commander in the Stables of the Inner Bailey, and talk to Father Leamus (Priest) (he's in the pub). I suspect that your PC talking will need sufficiently high enough social skills in order to be able to complete this quest and eventually determine that Father Leamus (Priest) is the traitor who is informing the enemy when and where caravans are leaving the Keep. Confront Father Leamus (Priest) and arrange to meet him at night in his home. This is a trap. When you talk to Father Leamus (Priest) in his home, he will eventually attack your party in an attempt to prevent you from revealing his treachery to the Keep's authorities. Kill him and his followers, and then report back to the merchant Guildmaster and then to Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) in order to complete the quest.

    In one of my playthroughs, the Caravan of Courage quest became available from the noticeboard after rescuing Angryn (Merchant) from the Insect Mound at the Southern Pine Forest.

    In one of my playthroughs, upon completing the Arachnophobia quest, the Raiders of the Southern Forest became available from the noticeboard and Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) allowed me to get a masterwork weapon from the Quartermaster as a reward.

    In one of my playthroughs, the Raiders of the Southern Forest quest and The Root of All Chaos quest became available from the noticeboard after rescuing Reynard (Elf) from the Southern Pine Forest and returning him to Geoffrey (Scribe) at the market place in the Outer Bailey of the Keep).

    In one of my playthroughs, after completing the Walking in Their Footsteps quest, talking to Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) a second time allowed me to select a masterwork weapon of my choice when talking to the Quartermaster in the Inner Bailey.

    In one of my playthroughs, completing the Walking in Their Footsteps quest for Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) made the Caravan of Courage quest become available from the noticeboard.

    There is a one-way secret passage that goes from one of the water vats in the Fortress Basement of the Inner Bailey down into the Sewer.

    The Thieves' Guild is adjacent to and at the top (northern) edge of the Sewer.

    There are 2 exits from the Sewer that lead up to the Outer Bailey (one exits near the pub and one exits near the market well).

    Milson (Shady Character) will give you Shadow Armour (AC +3, Max Dex Bonus +5, weight 20, Armour Check Penalty -1, Spell Failure 15%) as a reward for completing the ? quest.

    2.6 Swamp

    The Swamp becomes accessible by accepting the Walking in Their Footsteps quest (i.e. the quest to find the missing adventurers) from the Keep's noticeboard, which is available at the start of the game.

    Clicking on the door portal at the bottom of the Swamp map opens up The Thorp of Lord Axer location on your world map (which you can then travel to at any time).

    Hollow Stump (upper left corner of map):
    Jeweller's Scalpel (masterwork keen silver dagger, 1d3 damage, 17-20 crit threat range)
    tourmaline
    turquoise
    star ruby
    iolite
    chalcedony

    Chest (inside the lizard man lair) (only if you kill the lizardmen):
    6X Spider Egg
    Poison vial
    potion of Cure Moderate Wounds

    Upon completing the Lizardmen vs Predator quest, the Lizardman Chief will reward you by giving you either 1 or 7 Spider Eggs (if you have accepted the Back in the Sack quest from the Spider Queen, then you will receive 7 Spider Eggs from the Lizardman Chief, otherwise you will receive 1 Spider Egg). You complete the Eight-legged Freaks quest (Flay's quest #2) by giving Flay (Undertaker) a Spider Egg - Flay will give you 100 platinum as a reward. If you have 6 or 7 spider eggs, then you can return them to the Spider Queen at the Southern Pine Forest in order to complete the Back in the Sack quest for the Spider Queen.

    Upon completing the Eight-legged Freaks quest, if you select the dialogue option "Spider poison?", then Flay (Undertaker) will give you a vial of Poison.

    The Lizardmen's Lair becomes a safe area to rest in once you have dealt with the lizardmen.

    When you click on the painting on the wall inside the lizardmen's lair, the Deep Swamp location opens up on your world map (which you can then travel to at any time).

    2.7 Southern Pine Forest

    The Southern Pine Forest becomes accessible by accepting the Arachnophobia quest (i.e. the quest to deal with the spider problem) from the Keep's noticeboard, which is available at the start of the game.

    The Southern Pine Forest is infested with large spiders.

    In the upper left corner of the map is the secret entrance to the Insect Mound. You will need to climb down in order to enter the Insect Mound. Inside the Insect Mound, you will meet Angryn (Merchant) who will beg you to take him out of the Insect Mound to safety. If you allow Angryn to join your party, then as soon as your party leaves the Insect Mound, Angryn will give you a Spider Silk as a reward and permanently leave your party. If you rescue Angryn, then this will allow you to join the Merchant's Guild later on.

    There is a Spider Silk item on the ground near the lower left area of the map.

    Anybody will suffer a -2 penalty to Dexterity so long as a Spider Silk item remains in his/her inventory.

    You can give the Spider Silk to Flay (Undertaker) to complete The Silk Road quest (Flay's quest #1) for Flay (Undertaker) - Flay will give you 200 gold as a reward.

    You can give the other Spider Silk to Ricario (Apothecary) at the Keep's market because it is one of the spell components that he seeks (you will need to find the small leather pouch first though).

    In order to deal with the spider problem, you can either:
    1. attack and kill the Spider Queen and ALL of the other spiders on the map (excluding the Ornery Spider (I think));
    2. talk to the Spider Queen and agree to return her stolen spider eggs from the lizardmen in the Lizardman Lair at the Swamp, then return 6 or 7 Spider Eggs to the Spider Queen in order to complete the Back in the Sack quest.
    After you have done either of the above, report back to Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) in order to complete the Arachnophobia quest.

    The Spider Queen is located near the upper right corner of the map.

    If you talk to the Spider Queen but don't attack her, and then return to and talk to the bailiff about "What to do next" in dealing with the spider problem, the bailiff will tell you to go see Hal Hommleter (Scribe) for some scrolls to help you deal with the spider problem. If you talk to Hal Hommleter (Scribe), then Hal will give you a scroll of Repel Vermin, a scroll of Lightning Bolt, and a scroll of Delay Poison to help you deal with the spider problem. Hal Hommleter (Scribe) only appears just inside the Keep's main entrance during the day.

    Behind the Spider Queen is a secret portal that leads up to a tree house where Reynard (Elf) lays unconsious. If you heal Reynard and then return him to Geoffrey (Scribe), then you will complete The Health of the Cousins Elf quest and Geoffrey will offer you a reward of either a Helm of Reading Magic (I recommend that you take this helm), an elixir of Vision, a wand of Identify, Goggles of Minute Seeing, 2 scrolls of Acid Arrow, 2 scrolls of Fog Cloud, or 2 scrolls of Cause Fear.

    DEVELOPER'S NOTE: All of this is based on a section of the module which has 2 black widow spiders here, and the skeleton of a dead elf with a rusty shield that, if polished, is revealed to be a +1 magic shield. The need to add a 'polisher' for this shield is what led to the creation of the character Nobby and his polishing rusty weapons, while the dead Elf now has a live brother than can be rescued. I still haven't done the shield though! ;) The 'maze' map was done by a fellow named Allanon, a Co8 lurker who appeared out of nowhere, made that map with ToEE:WB, then disappeared again, so I of course populated it with slightly more than 2 spiders (2 is not much of a challenge, and a bit too 'Deklo Grove'). The bailiff in chatter will actually refer to 'wanting to deal with the spiders when there was only 2', a nod to the module. Contrary to what people think I tried very hard to place the spiders in areas where they will NOT get obscured by trees - that annoys me as much as any other player - but did not always succeed.









    2.8 Northern Oak Woods

    The Northern Oak Woods become accessible by accepting the One Big Harpy Family quest (i.e. the quest to deal with some harpies) from Kepler (Druid) who only walks the southeastern area of the Outer Bailey at night.

    2.10 Lizardman Refuge (Lizardman Hunting Grounds)

    The Lizardman Refuge becomes accessible by either:
    1. accepting the Lizardmen vs Predator quest from the Lizardman Chief at the Swamp;
    2. accepting the A Dream Come True quest from Lord Axer.

    You will be ambushed by a Young Black Dragon (on the upper right side of the map) and 3 Giant Lizards (on the lower left side of the map) when one of your PCs has moved far enough to the upper right area of the map.

    There are magical items on the ground. If you manage to loot the magical items before the ambush, then you can equip and use those items during the combat.

    The following items are on the ground:

    (Black) Breastplate +1
    Ring of Featherfall
    Wand of Eagle's Splendour
    tiger toy (gold tiger figurine)

    If you are able to cast the spell Protection from Acid and/or you have Cerulean's Alkaline Balm, then use that item and/or cast the spell just before you fight the dragon. The dragon will breath acid as its first action during the combat, but it can only make one breath attack during the combat.

    The easiest way to win this combat is to have your character (who has the highest AC and best reflex save) keep the Young Black Dragon preoccupied (by slowly luring it towards the rest of your party) (i.e. keep moving out of the dragon's threat area by either withdrawing or taking 5-foot steps) while the rest of your party deals with the 3 Large Lizards. Once you have dealt with the 3 lizards, then your whole party can attack the dragon at the same time.

    Young Black Dragon (146 HP)
    Attack: +13/+8/+8 (bite/claw/claw)
    lootable items:
    Dragon Head
    Dragon Scales (If you successfully skin the Dragon Scales, then talk to Heggrim, then talk to Kenneally (Trader), then talk to Reece (Cobbler) and pay him 30 gold and he will give you a Tanned Dragon Hide after 1 week, then talk to Heggrim and pay him 150 gold and he will give you a Black Dragon Hide Armour (Weight 20, AC +3, Max Dex Bonus +4, Armor Check Penalty -2, Spell Failure 15%, masterwork, acid resistance 5))
    Dragon's Gall Bladder
    Ornated Helm

    After you defeat the Young Black Dragon, 2 random masterwork weapons will spawn on the ground. The 2 masterwork weapons can include (note: this is not a complete list):

    masterwork butterfly sword
    masterwork dao
    masterwork glaive
    masterwork handaxe
    masterwork katar
    masterwork morningstar
    masterwork quarterstaff
    masterwork scythe
    masterwork shovel
    masterwork war fan









    2.11 Deep Swamp

    The Deep Swamp becomes accessible by clicking on the painting on the wall inside the Lizardman Lair at the Swamp.

    On ground:
    Belladonna
    2X Wolfsbane
    Broken Piece of Sundial

    There is a hostile Dire Boar hidden around behind the tower.

    Dire Boar (77 HP)

    Inside the tower, you encounter Egor (Goblinish thing). Don't attack or kill him. You NEED to keep him alive for now (otherwise you will never be able to gain entry to the mad wizard's laboratory). Ask Egor about the missing adventurers and Egor will inform you that the missing adventurers were killed by the mad wizard (i.e Egor's master). When you return to Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) and report this information, you will complete the Walking in Their Footsteps quest. Egor offers you a riddle. Accept the riddle.

    To solve the first riddle given to you by Egor (Goblinish thing), you need to:
    1. have a PC answer who has a high enough Intelligence (otherwise the correct dialogue response won't be displayed for you to select);
    2. select the dialogue response 8 gold 75 silver

    Egor will give you a Vellum Parchment (that contains the clues to solve his second riddle) and then he will run off. You will encounter Egor again in the mad wizard's laboratory.

    Solution to Egor's (Goblinish thing's) second riddle:

    Solution to Vellum Parchment riddle / treasure hunt:

    1. Golden stein (located in a shelf that is 1 floor above the ground floor of the tower)
    2. Vellum Parchment
    3. scroll of Curse Water or scroll of Animate Dead (both are located 1 floor above the ground floor of the tower)
    4. Tiger toy (located at the Lizardman Refuge (Lizardman Hunting Grounds))
    5. White Pearl or Black Pearl (can be looted from 2 special random encounters (Necromancer or Summoner) or bought from Geoffrey (Scribe) at the market in the Keep)
    6. Belladonna or Wolfsbane (located on the ground outside the tower)
    7. Tun of Wheat Beer (located 1 floor below the ground floor of the tower)
    8. Ornate Quill (located in Desk Drawer (Open Lock DC: 28) that is 1 floor above the ground floor of the tower)
    9. Broken Piece of Sundial (located on the ground outside the tower)
    10. Gelatinous Heart (located on the floor after killing the Gelatinous Cube at the top floor of the tower; if you have lots of characters in your party, then you may find it extremely difficult to pick this item up from the floor)

    If you put the above 10 items into the Hope Chest (located 1 floor above the ground floor of the tower), then the Mad Wizard's Laboratory door unlocks.

    If you return to Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) and tell him that the mad wizard killed the missing adventurers, and that you haven't dealt with the mad wizard yet, and that you'll need help to do so, then Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) will tell you to go talk to the Corporal who will add 3X Watchman (11 HP) level 1 archers equipped with banded armor and longbows to your party as followers to help you deal with the mad wizard.

    The Laboratory is at the bottom of the tower.

    When you finally manage to enter the Laboratory, you must fight the following:

    3X Fiendish Dire Chicken (27 HP)

    random elemental, either:
    Air Elemental (48 HP) or

    2.12 Raider Camp

    Originally posted by Shiningted:
    When you start exploring the raider camp, you will encounter a Wemic named Mia. She can tell you that you need to climb the cliff that is a little bit back the way that you came when you first arrived at the raider camp map. Mia is evil. You can choose to either recruit her or kill her (or just leave her there?).

    When you scale the cliff face, you will encounter Grove Creeper (Mystic fey) who tries to lure you into a trap. The spell Magic Missile and fire damage spells and slashing weapons are effective against her. Concentrate all of your attacks on Grove Creeper (Mystic fey) because all of her Tendrils disappear when she dies. Be very careful if you engage her in melee because her melee attacks can paralyse her target.

    Grove Creeper (Mystic fey) (46 HP) Damage Reduction (10/Slashing), Cold Resistance (20/-), Electricity Resistance (20/-), immune to sneak attacks (monster, plant, untripable, subdual immunity, poison immunity, monster melee paralysis)
    AC: 20 (+8 natural armor, +2 Dexterity modifier)
    spawns Tendrils (11 HP) Damage Reduction (5/Slashing), Damage Resistance (10/-), AC: 19

    You will need to climb down the cliff face once you reach the eastern edge of the ledge. Down below, you will have to fight Forestal (who casts Call Lightning? or Lightning Bolts?) and his 2? animal companion Bear(s).

    Forestal (45 HP)
    Luckstone
    Small leather pouch (give this to Ricario (Apothecary) at market in Outer Bailey)
    masterwork scimitar
    Book ("I.F. & G.") (allows you to craft a magical crossbow)
    potion of Cure Moderate Wounds
    potion of Barkskin
    moss-green robes

I had to leave the Cells map and then reappear on the Cells map again in order for Billy to show up in his cell in my game.

    When travelling on the world map, just before you arrive at the Raider Camp, you will have a random encounter with the raiders. If you had talked to Billy in his cell, then you will appear on the upper right corner of the random encounter map, where you can prepare for combat and ambush the raiders who are on the lower left corner of the map. If you didn't talk to Billy in his cell, then you will be ambushed by the raiders. Kill the raiders and then return to Dren Tolvek (Bailiff) to complete the Raiders of the Southern Forest quest.

    2.13 The Caves of Chaos

    [​IMG]

    Originally posted by Shiningted:

    1. asking Korrac to join your party. He will then immediately take you to the Caves of Chaos;
    2. completing 2 or more of the Bailiff's other quests (including Billy), which causes The Root of All Chaos quest to become available from the noticeboard - accepting this quest opens up the Caves of Chaos location on your world map.

    In order to be able to enter the Shrine of Evil Chaos, you need 7 marks (1 mark from each of the 7 humanoid tribes that inhabit the Caves of Chaos. The 2 orc tribes are not implemented in the game yet, but you start the game with the 2 marks from the 2 orc tribes). You can obtain the 7 marks by either:
    1. killing all 7 humanoid chiefs and then looting their respective branding irons ("good" parties will do this);
    2. parlaying with all 7 humanoid chiefs and then completing all of their respective quests, then each humanoid chief will reward you by marking you with their respective branding iron ("evil" parties will do this).

    If you use the Ink, Quill and Parchment, then it will inform you of any marks that you don't have yet.

    Whenever you either loot a branding iron or whenever a humanoid chief marks you with his branding iron, the computer game changes a particular global flag's value from 0 to 1.

    For example, if you want to check whether you have the mark from the Kobold Chief's branding iron, enter the following console command (note: you open/close the console by pressing the ~ key (Shift `)):

    game.global_flags[539]

    If any of those particular global flags return a 0 in the console, then it means that you don't have the mark for that humanoid tribe. A return of 1 in the console means that you do have the mark for that humanoid tribe.

    If, for some reason, you are unable to obtain the mark for a humanoid tribe, you can use the following cheat code to give yourself the relevant mark:

    game.global_flags[###] = 1

    where ### is the relevant global flag number in the list above.







    Outside the Caves of Chaos, you can only climb the ladder up to the ledge above if your party ?

    2.14 The Shrine of Evil Chaos

    [​IMG]

    The Shrine of Evil Chaos becomes accessible by either:
    1. finding and using the secret passage (Search DC: 30) between the Gnoll Chief's room (in the Gnoll Cave at the Caves of Chaos) and the Shrine of Evil Chaos (not verified by me);
    2. obtaining the 7 marks from the 7 humanoid tribes at the Caves of Chaos, then using rope to climb up to the cave entrance of the Shrine of Evil Chaos at the Caves of Chaos.

    Looting the Chair (which contains 4X violet garnet) in the lower left room causes the skeletons to attack your party.

    Looting the Bronze Vessels causes all of the shrine's priests to become hostile and attack your party on sight. It also causes Hegumen to walk from his chambers to his throne room (where the skeletons in the adjacent room will join the fight when you fight Hegumen).

    There is a Medusa disguising herself as a woman in the gaol cell (door Open Lock DC: 29) which is located just to the lower right of where you enter the map. If you insist on fighting her, then only have 1 of your PCs approach her so that only 1 character in your party has to make a saving throw versus petrification. After she has made her gaze attack, have the rest of your party move in for the kill.

    If any of your characters die by being petrified by the Medusa's gaze, then you can use her potion of Stone to Flesh to revive any petrified characters after the combat.

    Medusa (Woman) (60 HP)
    potion of Stone to Flesh (can return several persons back to flesh)

    There is a Wight and a Torturer in the room (door Open Lock DC: 31) at the bottom right of the map.
