Tips and Misc
- Chef Nargyl may appear in the second room to the west; if he doesn't, several black puddings will spawn instead.
- Quartermaster Drant may appear in the locked room; he counts towards "kill the ogres" bonus.
- Blizzard may appear at the end, with Hammersmith; no bonus XP for slaying him, however he drops that chest.
- The rooms just south of the bridge don't open until after crossing the bridge.
- Hurpostaw may appear in the room southeast of the bridge; he counts towards killing trolls.
- The "Blocked Access" (see map, right), a locked gate beyond Hammersmith, is not passable; that area is saved for the next quest in the chain, Extermination.
- After this quest, to return to Bruku and advance to the next quest, it is faster to recall back to the ship and then re-enter Sorrowdusk from there, rather than run the distance.

- Tamper bonus: 1 or more trap disarmed +10% Bonus.
