The circus is visiting Athkatla and can be found in Waukeen's Promenade. Except ... something went wrong during the show, and nobody has come out!

Speak to the boy Giran outside the circus tent at 2 to learn that his mother was visiting the circus. Then speak to the guard and tell him you can probably handle this.

  1. The guard suggests that you should speak to the animal trainer who managed to escape. The trainer, aptly called Fearghus, can be found on top of the platform at 3 in Waukeen's Promenade.

  2. Not that Fearghus can tell you a lot, except that some sort of Illusion trick went badly wrong.

  3. Return to the circus tent and enter. You find yourself on the first level of The Circus.

  4. Walk across the bridge and a Genie appears and asks you a riddle. Answer "The prince is 30 and the princess is 40" for 19,500 XP.

  5. Take the entrance at 3 to level 2 of the circus.

  6. An ogre with a curiously human voice speaks to you. The ogre is really an Elf named Aerie with an illusion cast on her. She begs you to get her sword which will break the illusion.

    Incidentally, Aerie is a joinable NPC.

  7. Don't kill the spider at 6; it is really Giran's mother Hannah with an illusion cast on her.

  8. Do kill the two peasants at 7, who are really Orcs. Loot one of them for the Ogre's Sword.

  9. Bring the sword back to Aerie and give it to her for 18,500 XP. Aerie offers to join your party. Whether you accept is up to you.

  10. Give the Pleasure Slave at 8 any answer you wish and enter the door to go to level 3 of the circus.

  11. Here you will be attacked by Shadows (which are real) and werewolves (which are illusions). Loot the two vases at the bottom of the stairs for some low-level scrolls.

  12. Ascend the stairs and the Genie will appear again to ask if you are ready. Tell it you are. Enter the door to the fourth level of the circus.

  13. Here, Kalah awaits you along with some Shadows (real) and werewolves (illusions). Concentrate all your fire on Kalah – once he goes down the circus returns to normal! The party receives 2,000 XP.

  14. You get a short conversation with Kalah before he dies. The party receives another 25,000 XP.

  15. If Aerie didn't already join up, she offers again to join your party.

  16. Speak to Hannah at 16 in the left side of the circus tent for 500 XP. She leaves to find her son.

  17. Go outside and speak to Giran again for 2,500 XP.

  18. Also speak to the Amnish Soldier for a Reputation increase of 1.
