Tips and Misc

Outside the walls
  • The Adventurer's Pack as you enter (on the right) is guarded Tooth and Claw...
  • The Redcaps at the entrance are just spoiling for a fight.
    • If you wish to avoid one, I suggest a nice swim in the river to the east, or you can jump across the wall on the right side. A successful Bluff, Perform, or Intimidate check will also scare them into compliance.
Inside the walls
  • Talk to the apple tree and acquire an apple, either using a skill check (Bluff, Perform, or Jump) or whacking the tree inhabitant. Note that Jumping, even if successful, irks the tree.
  • Agree to do a favor for the lady Whitelilly. Give her the apple. This gets you a token.
  • Smithy has redcap infestation. Solve the problem (using Bluff, Intimidate, or a good old-fashioned beatdown) to free the smith. This gets you a token.
  • Storehouse has Riddlelock. Riddlelock will give you a riddle; you can use /say near him to answer. You can also use Diplomacy, Bluff or Intimidate to increase your chances to three; failure to Intimidate or getting the wrong answer leads to a fight. Riddlelock has multiple riddles:
    • "What word of five letters that sinks has one left when two are removed?" Answer: Stone
    • "What five-letter word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it?" Answer: Short
    • "A word I know, six letters it contains, remove one letter and twelve remains. What is it?" Answer: Dozens
    • Answering correctly or defeating Riddlelock releases a guard. Talk to guard. This gets you a token.
  • Shop has some angry pixies. Clearing them gives you XP.
  • Waterfall has elementals. Clearing them gives you XP and a chest.
In the castle
  • Once you have 3 tokens, talk to the magic mouth to enter the sealed castle.
  • If you fight to subdue the Eladrin, they will surrender and disappear rather than dying; if you're going for the kills bonus, fight to kill. The animals fighting with them will fight to the death either way. You can also use Diplomacy to avoid fighting altogether, at least until you get to the top level. The diplomacy check is higher than 117 on epic reaper.
  • Climb to the top, talk to the viscount to uncover the hag (the real Agnes is the only one who doesn't change to a blueish green color ever so often). Kill hag. Grab lute to complete.

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: ~56 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣128 ♦228 ♥244 ♠260 )
  • Mischief bonus: 17-18 or more breakables smashed +8% Bonus.( ♣102 ♦183 ♥195 ♠208 )
  • Vandal bonus: 21 or more breakables smashed +10% Bonus.( ♣128 ♦228 ♥244 ♠260 )

Loot

  • Chests: Three
    • One for defeating the Water Elementals
    • One for subduing or diplo'ing the tower guards instead of killing them
    • One end chest; may contain named lute... er, loot
  • Collectables: Five
    • Fungus under the stream on the exterior of the castle walls to your Left (east) as you enter
    • Adventurer's Pack up the hill to your right (west) as you enter
    • Cabinet in the Barracks
    • Alchemy Table in the Alchemist's Workshop
    • Adventurer's Pack in the Storehouse; requires some finicky (...or finnicky...) jumping, or possibly just a high skill/Leap ability
      • You can get there with moderate jump (26 worked) by getting onto the second level on the east wall, jumping diagonally to grab some crates stacked on the floor by the door; getting onto crates on the second level on the west wall; jumping onto the door; and then over to the the Pack.
  • NPC rewards: Standard; choose from 8
