    Well presumably there will be a key somewhere which opens it. Are you sure that you don't mean Mae'Var's guild hall?

    Which area is that actually? (press X on keyboard to get it's code, AR####).

    I remember that there is such chest in Mae'Var's guild - for that chest you'll need a special key that comes with the quests from Edwin. Is that the one?

    [EDIT]
    Wildfire!!!

    SPOILER

    Edwin has the key and will give it to you once you complete his 2 quests (kill the wiz, steal the docs) and Mae'var's last quest (kill Embarl).

    You sided with Bodhi, right?
    It looks as a bug to me. The chest is set to unopenable state (lock difficulty 100% - you can't perform lockpicking on such locks nor bash 'em). But the key to open it is not determined.
    I need some opinions if that is a bug, and if it is, I'll make a fix on it.
    Just to note something - the chest is not empty!


    Gonzago, Mae'Var's chest is not the problematic chest in his case.


    [EDIT]
    I've mailed you the file that will make that chest lockpickable with instructions what to do with the file. If I get a blessing on it from the board members, it'll also be included in SPfixpack. Thanks for pointing this one out!

    Thanks again, Extremist.

    I'll have to wait awhile to tell you if it worked, because stupid me gave it as a lost cause, and moved on w/ the game (am currently @ Spellhold):(. i will tell you how it turned out when i get back.

    P.S. You have all of our blessing:)

    [Good, then it will be added in the fixpack and your job now is to point me if any other such unopenable container exists - Ex ;)]
