Overview

Gunnar Bauerson told you of a Sahuagin plan to awaken an ancient Devourer beast, a creature of terror and myth. You must enter the Underground Complex where the beast is imprisoned and then activate the giantish device that will keep it trapped in a frozen slumber.

The Underground Complex is located at the bottom of a cliff on Korthos Island, just outside Korthos Village.

Spoiler Warning: Information below this point can be considered spoiler material!

Objectives

  • Find the Giantish device
  • Slay all the sahuagin in the ice floor room
  • Find a way to progress
  • Redirect the mist spray towards the beast

What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed, some don't require rogue skills to be disarmed)
  • Collapsible floor
  • Puzzle (mandatory: tile puzzle)
  • Spawning/respawning monsters

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Poison trap on the left-hand branch of the tunnels
  • Poison trap in the ice floor room is controlled by valve and cannot be disabled
  • Ice traps where Kraak lurks, just before the end.

Tips and Misc

  • This adventure is easier than most of this level.
  • This quest is the rework of the Survive the Low Road quest from the original harbor area.
  • Before the path splits, the 2 levers behind secret doors can easily be ignored if you don't care about the ransack and perception/vigilant bonuses. Each lever opens the grate directly across the hall from it for +4 more breakables each.
  • In the Ice Floor room, you need to use the alarm gong twice to break the ice.
  • The valve just inside the valve-locked door in the Ice Floor room will actually START the poison trap outside when it's turned; you need to close the big wooden door to turn off the ice spray.
  • The secret door to the shrine room (after the swim) has a search DC of -5, so it is all but impossible to fail. Inside this room is a ladder to the top near the alarm gong, if anyone in your party wants to avoid the swim.
    • If this door is not opened, then the two Sahuagin inside will open it and move to attack when someone reaches the top of the ramp.

Bonus XP

  • Discreet bonus: 4 or fewer monsters killed +5% Bonus.( ♣16 ♦27 ♥29 ♠31 )
  • Aggression bonus: 19 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣32 ♦54 ♥58 ♠63 )

  • Conquest bonus: 28 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣81 ♦135 ♥146 ♠157 )
  • Observance bonus: 2 or more secret doors discovered +8% Bonus.( ♣26 ♦43 ♥47 ♠50 )
  • Perception bonus: 3 or more secret doors discovered +10% Bonus.( ♣32 ♦54 ♥58 ♠63 )
  • Vigilant Sight bonus: 4 or more secret doors discovered +15% Bonus.( ♣49 ♦81 ♥88 ♠94 )
  • Mischief bonus: 24 or more breakables smashed +8% Bonus.( ♣26 ♦43 ♥47 ♠50 )
  • Vandal bonus: 33 or more breakables smashed +10% Bonus.( ♣32 ♦54 ♥58 ♠63 )
  • Ransack bonus: 37 or more breakables smashed +15% Bonus.( ♣49 ♦81 ♥88 ♠94 )
Notes: A sahuagin just before the split and (a sahuagin in an alcove to the right of the beast, respawn every 3 minutes or so, allowing the conquest bonus, only 17 monsters, so you will have to wait for 11 respawns.
