The City Gate District
The Crooked Crane Inn  

THE CROOKED CRANE

This unassuming inn bids travelers welcome to Athkatla. Accommodations are humble and the selection of drinks is limited. But everything is not as quiet as it seems. Here is love and intrigue. And something dangerous lurks here...

  1. Here is the exit back to the City Gate District. The first time you enter, a nobleman insists on telling you about the two star-crossed lovers on the second floor, and how their families want them to break up their relationship.

  2. Here are the steps up to the second floor.

  3. Here is a hidden and locked door. Behind the door lurks a Lich, so before you enter, I recommend preparing for a tough battle. Low-level parties should come back when they have gathered experience and heavily enchanted weapons.

  1. Here are the stairs back down to the first floor.

  2. Here are Tiiro and Aulava, the aforementioned young lovers. You can either advice them to follow their families' wishes and break up, or to follow their own hearts. After all, love is all that matters in the end! This is a pure role-playing decision and has no consequences later on, as far as I know.

  3. If you are playing a Mage or a Sorcerer, this is where you will find Lord Argrim and his party in connection with the Mage Stronghold quests.

  1. Here is the exit back to the first floor of the Crooked Crane Inn.

  2. Here is a Lich. The moment you enter he will go hostile and put up strong magical defenses before attacking you with such nasties as Meteor Storm Bombardment. If he gets off his Timestop spell, he will proceed to Gate in a Pit Fiend. If this happens and you haven't got any +3 or better weapons, you may as well reload.

    Killing the Lich is worth 22,000 XP. Once he goes down, he drops a Wand of Fire, a Wand of Cloudkill, a Wand of Lightning, a Rod of Terror, and a Ring of Invisibility.

    The chest next to him at (x=350, y=290) contains a random item and the Long Sword Daystar +1 which allows the wielder to cast Sunray once per day – an extremely useful spell against all undead. It also has other useful abilities vs. undead.
