Proceed carefully, brave adventurer! You have made it inside the De'Arnise Keep, but you also want to make it out again! Danger lurks around every corner in this Troll-infested keep!

  1. Here is where you enter from the secret entrance at 5 on the Outside Area.

  2. In this room you will find a couple of crates with supplies:

    The crate at (x=340, y=1530) contains a Potion of Defense, 20 Arrows +2, 20 Bolts +2, a Heavy Crossbow, 20 Bolts of Lightning, and a Light Crossbow +1.

    The barrel at (x=540, y=1560) contains a bit of gold, 5 Potions of Extra Healing, a Scroll of Agannazar's Scorcher, and some non-magical Bullets and Darts.

  3. In this room will be a Troll killing a servant, then turning on you.

  4. Here you can find Daleson who can fill you in a bit more on what is happening. If Nalia is in the party, she will scold him for calling the cellars "dungeons" and for his way of speaking of certain nobles. Seems the young lady is a bit more class-conscious than she herself wants to think. ;-)

    Daleson offers an important piece of advice: He has been feeding some creatures in the cellar with Dog Stew. Maybe if you could find some dogs and a stove, you could make life a bit easier for yourself down there...

    Besides mundane weapons, the rack at (x=700, y=1120) holds a Long Bow +1, 12 Acid Arrows, 10 Arrows of Fire, and 20 Bolts +1.

    The rack at (x=500, y=990) holds more mundane weapons and a Quarterstaff +1, a Spear +1, 40 Bolts of Biting, 40 Bullets +2, and 40 Darts of Wounding.

  5. Here is a forge where you can assemble the Flail of Ages +3. To do so, you'll need the Flail Head (Cold) which you can find at 6, the Flail Head (Acid) which you get from Glaicas at 6 on Level 2, and the Flail Head (Fire) from the Golem Room at 11 on Level 2.

    The chest at (x=560, y=400) contains some minor treasure and a Scroll of Find Familiar.

    (A note from Lasivern: You don't need all three flail heads to construct the Flail of Ages +3. You can start construction with only one head to get a Flail of Ages +1, then return with another head to create a Flail of Ages +2, and finally complete the flail with the last head. You get much less experience this way but you get a magical flail almost at the start of your investigation of the keep.)

  6. Search the container in this room for a Ring of Earth Control, the Flail Head (Cold) and minor treasure.

  7. The central room has an assortment of Trolls for you to fight. Depending on your level when you do the quest, there may be ordinary Trolls and Ice Trolls, or Trolls and Spirit Trolls.

    If you take over the keep as your stronghold, this is where you will meet with the Major Domo to handle the Keep's affairs in connection with the Fighter Stronghold quests. If you don't accept Nalia into your party, she will also be here.

  8. Here will be an Ice Troll. The chests hold a variety of mundane weapons and minor treasure.

  9. Search the toilet at (x=1770, y=500) for a Star Sapphire.

  10. Here is the kitchen. You can use the stove to cook Dog Stew, if you have four Dog Meats in your inventory. By sheer coincidence you can find four Dogs in the courtyard outside. Kill them and loot each for Dog Meat. Click the stove five times to empty the Dog Meat into the cauldron, and you'll gain one Dog Stew and 11,500 XP.

  11. Here are the stairs up to Level 2 of the keep. You will also find another Troll about to kill a servant.

  12. This door leads out to the courtyard at 6 on the Outside map.

  13. This door also leads out to the courtyard. There's a trapped chest here with minor treasure and a Dagger +2.
