Overview

Sneak into House Avithoul and start a slave revolt. Climb inside a slave-cart in Sschindylryn in the Underdark. The War Wizard's illusion spell will disguise you as a slave once you are inside. The Underdark can be accessed through Eveningstar Cavern. Sschindylryn can be entered far south of the entry portal and high above the cavern floor.

Known Traps

Trap DCs

Two of the three relic rooms are significantly trapped. The last one is guarded by an orange-named draegloth that, on slaying him, also yields a chest. One of the corridors leading to a slave pen has a single spell ward.

Tips and Misc

  • The slave pen doors can be picked to avoid spawning guards that appear if the doors are destroyed. One of these north doors has a very high DC, especially on Epic Elite. On Epic Normal and Epic Hard, the Open Lock DC is 90. That same DC slave pen door was picked on Epic Elite with a 91.
  • Unlocking collars is a straight strength check, or skill + d20 (Data here).
  • There are several rooms where one or two (sometimes named) slavemasters keep control over their charges. A stealthy approach to find these slavers and quickly assassinate them in some cases will prevent accidentally killing the controlled slaves, who will fight you until all slavers in the area are killed.
  • In one of the slaver rooms, there are powerful mobs of spiders that directly prohibit a stealth assassination. Carefully destroy both spiders and slavers here if you haven't met your freed slave optional. A party member in stealth (with invisibility to lower any Spot checks of the nearby slaves) can pull most or all spiders to the outside hallway without attracting the slaves' attentions.
  • A switch in a recess of the spider lair of this room opens the door to more spiders for Conquest seekers. A key found in this area can be used to reach one of the relic optional rooms with a chest. Careful: The number of spiders can be overwhelming.
    • The first optional relic room can be accessed from a ladder in the slave pen room where you enter the quest.
    • The second can be accessed through a Secret door in the north-central slaver room.
    • The third relic room can be accessed through a hidden corridor just off the hall to the end fight. You'll probably need a good Rogue to handle this corridor; pay attention to the Dungeon Master dialogue.
    • If two relics are destroyed, the Matron Mother will appear in front of the third.
  • Once all slavers are killed, the sealed door (adjacent to the western shrine) opens, with NPC slaves greeting and encouraging you for the final fight.
  • The end-fight (in the northwest room) consists of a red-named slaver that compels mobs of slaves to attack you. A cunning party will figure out how to kite, charm or immobilize the slaves and a handful of their Drow guards while others in the party isolate the slaver to kill him without killing any of the slaves to achieve the final optional challenge. If careful, you can also pull the Assassins and Solul without pulling any of the slaves by using ranged weapons. However, the optional won't be assigned until you enter the final room; if you pull Solul without entering, the optional will be incompletable.
