Tips and Misc

You return to Castle Ravenloft. This time, your objectives are much more straightforward than in the Invitation to Dinner.

Read journal
  • Start by heading up the stairs to find the Small secret box in the Servants Quarters.
  • Read the journal left therein. Pay attention carefully to what you read. The options later are not easily distinguishable.
Get the journal and read thru the 5 entries.
Reading the journal, the first entry.
Reading the journal, the second entry.
Reading the journal, the third entry.
Reading the journal, the fourth entry.
Reading the journal, the fifth (and the last) entry.
Meet the hags
  • Go to South Tower and climb to the top. (Multiple ways exist to reach South Tower)
    • From the Tower take top exit to the Spires of Ravenloft (Level 4) and keep going up.
    • A door which was blocked (by a door) in the previous quest can now be opened, because you read the code word in the journal.
  • Speak with Drolga, kill them both, read/loot the adventure pack nearby.
  • Take Silver Key if you're interested in doing the Free Yesper optional.
Loot the treasury
  • Note: This concludes the quest. If you are working for break/trap/secret door bonuses, do this last.
  • Return to South Tower. Spires of Ravenloft was level 4, you need to go down one floor to level 3.
  • Head for the study, secret door in the fire place, and the treasury tower.
  • Interact with the door to use potion of gaseous form from hag's pack to enter the treasury.
  • Kill defenders and loot.
Free Yesper optional (second chest with named loot)
  • Get silver key from hags.
  • Go to the Dungeons (for example at the bottom of South Stairs).
  • Watch out for teleport traps. Hug left wall to avoid them.
  • Find Yesper in south prison in the SE corner (left from South Stairs), kill hag.
  • NOTE - opening the north prison with the key makes this optional not completable.
Tips
  • There are many secret doors in this quest. Some short cuts and others necessary. The one in the Servant's Quarters has a high DC but, it is a short cut.
