Zone 1: Cracked Wood CaveEdit

Cracked Wood Cave

The first room to explore lies straight ahead of you. It is a small room with a treasure chest. Beware of the Swinging Mace trap (E) when you try to reach the chest then proceed to the rest of the cave. The next room is the dining room of the goblins, and a Goblin Chef is preparing a meal here. The chef will flee when he sees you.

The next room is where the fun begins. This room is pretty large, and it is guarded by two goblins. The room to your right is even larger and it contains the bulk of the goblin tribe (4-6 goblins), the Bloody Hand Goblin Shaman and possibly a Bloody Hand Goblin War Chief. At the back of this room is a locked cage with a Dead Captive at G.

The former room has a second entrance to a hallway system at its western side. This hallway system leads to the rat farm at A and a collection of 12 Arrows of Burning at D .




Doors and Gates:

  • There is one door (at Out) in/out of this zone, leading outside


  • 1 Dead Captive (carries light armor greaves and gauntlets, 10% chance jewelry, all possibly enchanted) at location G on map
