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.
- 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.
