Wheloon Prison is a Level 15 Heroic/Level 25 Epic Wilderness adventure area accessible from Wheloon Docks.

To access Wheloon Prison, go to the center of town, up the big ramp behind the NPCs and the crates. Enter through the portal at the top of the ramp. This area may require the purchase the Wheloon Content Pack.

Abandoned Tunnel[edit]

Here you can find Snake, who can send you back to Wheloon Docks through some hidden tunnels.

Criminal Hideout[edit]

A small hideout that have a few burglars inside. You can also find Journal #20 inside (both heroic and epic)

Shar Manor[edit]

A vast mansion inside the prison. Some doors are locked. You can find one of the keys laying around in a random location in the prison, and the other two doors can be open by completing the Random Encounters Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained (key given by Nil), and A Ray of Hope (door unlocked by Adara Semple). You can find Journals #17 inside the manor. Journal #8 is always locked: On Heroic, behind the random key west door. On Epic, behind the east locked door unlocked by Adara.


An old bookstore that still have some secrets. You will complete the random encounter The Magistrate's Menace there. Journal #16 is also laying around.

Netherese Tavern[edit]

This tavern is usually filled with netherese army or telekinetic spell wards. You can also find Hunkajunk or Triste Blackwold here.

Decrepit Barn[edit]

Inside the Oldstone Halls, you will find this barn. Inside, you might find a Shadow Puppeteer and his puppets, Nichts Volpe, Okage, Hush, The Black Eye, or The Dark Maw. Locked behind some bars is also the Journal #15


Unlike most explorer zones, Wheloon Prison has some Poison traps around their zone. They are randomly placed by trapsmiths throughout the area and can be disabled as any normal traps. Sometimes you might also find some Spell Wards.

He sells a unique Glamered Clothing (Ragged Rags) for 20 Astral Shards, and you can buy Elixir of Angels Tears (2d6+14 universal healing), Potion of Alertness +20 (+20 competence bonus to Spot, Listen and Search for 20 minutes), Potion of Jumping +30, or Potion of Negative Level Removal (one single negative level) for 5 Astral Shards each.

Key to the Shar Manor[edit]

A key appears in random locations lying on the ground (not limited to spawn points shown on the map, there are many more spawning points all over the area). This key unlocks the first floor west side door in Shar Manor. The only thing of value in the two rooms inside is Oraphaun's Missive #8 on Heroic.

Rares that only spawn on Heroic[edit]

  • Slay Okage, the Shadow Puppeteer - Decrepit Barn
  • Slay Hush, the Shadow Stalker - Decrepit Barn
  • Slay Lord Monte, Right Cross of Darkness - Rooftop locations East of Oldstone Hall

Rares that only spawn on Epic[edit]

Oriphaun's Journal in Wheloon Prison ♦Heroic[edit]

Each journal is worth  ♦495 XPNormal, with a  ♦2,970 XPNormal bonus for finding everything.

  • Oriphaun's 1st Wheloon Journal: Time for me to begin. If I'm right, this is what I've always dreamed of. Of course there's still the small matter of making my way through a prison full of hostile inmates. Still, if I had wanted the quiet life, I would have stayed at court.
  • Oriphaun's 2nd Wheloon Journal: Netheril has always been a threat to Cormyr. Yet they were always far away, off beyond our western borders. Now the Netherese are here, deep in Cormyr's interior. What I cannot fathom in this - how did a horde of hostile Netherese get inside the prison?
  • Oriphaun's 3rd Wheloon Journal: I came here looking for another prize to add to my collection, yet here I am trying to defend my homeland from Netherese invaders. Not exactly what I had planned. Though someone who goes out looking for adventure can hardly complain when he finds it.
  • Oriphaun's 4th Wheloon Journal: Spent the day at Harvest Hall. Its inhabitants claim that they have nothing to do with either the Shar worshippers or the criminals. Alas, they know nothing about the relic I'm after. So I bade them farewell and continued my search.
  • Oriphaun's 5th Wheloon Journal: Wheloon was a prosperous trading town before it became a prison. Now it's a cesspool. I'll need to use great deal of caution while I'm here. The inhabitants are anything but friendly.
  • Oriphaun's 6th Wheloon Journal: The Netherese are here. I've seen their wizards boldly walking the streets without a care in the world. Yet what brings them all the way to Wheloon? It must have something to do with the Shar worshippers. After all, they follow the same dark goddess.
  • Oriphaun's 7th Wheloon Journal: They walled up this town to imprison the Shar worshippers. Yet there must have been others - people who had nothing to do with the shadow goddess and her cult. May Amaunator bring light to any innocents trapped inside this darkness!
  • Oriphaun's 8th Wheloon Journal: This is hardly the place you'd expect to find an artifact of such power - or an artifact collector like myself. I admit that it's a bit mad to break into a prison. Yet who could resist the temptation of such a prize?
  • Oriphaun's 9th Wheloon Journal: I found myself lost in the Shadowfell, trying to find my way back. Imagine my surprise when the shadows themselves sprang up from the ground and attacked me! They can be troublesome foes, as insubstantial as, well, shadows. Though they flee the light, just as you would expect.
  • Oriphaun's 10th Wheloon Journal: I paid the lizardfolk a considerable sum to smuggle me through their tunnels and into the prison. That amused the scaly brutes quite a bit. Apparently the magistrates pay them handsomely to keep the prisoners from using the tunnels to escape. Ah well. I've always swum against the current!
  • Oriphaun's 11th Wheloon Journal: It can only be a Nether scroll - that is the only artifact I know of that could do what I've seen here. And now all the power is in the hands of Cormyr's enemies. Upon my honor, I will not let Netheril succeed.
  • Oriphaun's 12th Wheloon Journal: The Netherese are recruiting prisoners to their side. Mostly Shar worshippers, of course. Could it be that the Netherese came here hoping to build up an army? Yet what good is an army trapped inside prison walls?
  • Oriphaun's 13th Wheloon Journal: I've been watching the Netherese and it seems they're using Oldstone Hall as their base. And that means that they're the ones in control of the artifact. This makes my task much more difficult. If I go into Oldstone Hall, will I come back alive?
  • Oriphaun's 14th Wheloon Journal: Finding my way through these twisting streets can be a bit of a challenge. Perhaps I'll try climbing up to the rooftops. If nothing else I'll get a better view of the area.
  • Oriphaun's 15th Wheloon Journal: Now I understand what they're doing. Netheril is using the Shadowfell to travel here and build an army out of the Shar worshippers. When they're doing, they'll travel through the shadowfell again and use the army to strike in the very heart of Cormyr.
  • Oriphaun's 16th Wheloon Journal: I just slipped into the Shadowfell again. Now I'm sure that my theory is correct. Only a very powerful artifact could make the barriers between our world and the shadow plane so weak. Yet who is using this artifact, and why? I shall do my best to find out.
  • Oriphaun's 17th Wheloon Journal: A Huntsilver in prison - now what would my family make of it? No doubt some of them would say it's exactly where I belong. To them there's no worse crime than soiling the family name with my "treasure-hunting", as they call it.
  • Oriphaun's 18th Wheloon Journal: I've seen strange people with ashen skin patrolling this part of the prison. If I know my planar lore then they must be Shadar-kai from the Shadowfell. The ones here seem to serve the Netherese as bodyguards ... or assassins.
  • Oriphaun's 19th Wheloon Journal: Wheloon Prison is filled with the kingdom's worst murderers, thieves and bandits ... and to reach my goal I'll need to make it past them all. Time to put my training to the test. My uncle would be pleased to know that his lessons did not go to waste.
  • Oriphaun's 20th Wheloon Journal: The prisoners control everything inside the walls, and the magistrates no longer dare walk the streets. I'll use that to my advantage. No one will notice one more man in the midst of all this chaos.
  • Oriphaun's 21st Wheloon Journal: I've made it to Oldstone Hall. Next I'll try for the Nether scroll. It's a mad plan, of course. It means going straight into the heart of the enemy's stronghold. Still, a Huntsilver must do his duty, as my uncle would say. I only pray that I'm successful.
  • Oriphaun's 22nd Wheloon Journal: The source seems to be oldstone Hall, right in the center of the town. You can feel the dark energies flowing from its tower like waves of cold nights. Whatever is bringing the Shadowfell here is inside the tower, so that is where I must go.
  • Oriphaun's 23rd Wheloon Journal: This area is rife with Shar worshippers. That's why they made Wheloon a prison to begin with - the town was full of treasonous followers of the shadow goddess. Yet the Shar worshippers I've seen here don't behave much like prisoners. Indeed, they act like they own the place.
  • Oriphaun's 24th Wheloon Journal: I just had the most extraordinary experience. It was as if I slipped out of this world and into its bleak and desolate reflection. It's the Shadowfell, I'm sure of it. Very intriguing - and very dangerous. The things from the Shadowfell are no friend to those who live in the light.

Tyvrus's Missives in Wheloon Prison ●Epic[edit]

Each missive is worth  ●2,100 XPEpic, with a  ●12,600 XPEpic bonus for finding everything.

  • Find Tyrus's 1st Missive: My Lords, Wheloon Prison is ripe for the picking. There are many here who follow Shar - and vastly more who hate the nation that imprisoned them. Soon the prisoners will all be faithful servants of Netheril.
  • Find Tyrus's 2nd MissiveIcon tooltip.png Inside the Netherese Tavern.: My Lords, The Shadowfell Nexus is now in place. I have informed General Mathir (sic) that our troops can now enter and exit the Prison through the Shadowfell where it is required. Maintaining the Nexus consumes most of my time, so you will forgive me if keep my correspondence brief.
  • Find Tyrus's 3rd Missive: My Lords, All of Shar's followers inside Wheloon have sworn fealty to Netheril. We now have a force inside the Prison dedicated to the glory of the Mistress of the Night, the triumph of our Empire, and the complete and utter destruction of Cormyr.
  • Find Tyrus's 4th Missive: General Marthir, I realize the criminals are much more unruly than Shar's faithful. Offer them anything it takes to secure their loyalty - money, power, freedom. If we are to succeed in Wheloon, we must control all of its prisoners.
  • Find Tyrus's 5th Missive: My Lords, Despite all the elaborate magical wards they placed on the walls, the War Wizards failed to even consider that we might enter the Prison through the Shadowfell. I do not believe these fools will pose much of a threat when war comes.
  • Find Tyrus's 6th Missive: General Marthir, I know dealing with the Shadar-kai presents certain challenges. Yet they control the Shadowfell in this area, and this alone makes them an essential part of the plan. Besides, they are touched with shadows as we are; we who have been blessed by Shar must stand together against the light.
  • Find Tyrus's 7th Missive: Commander Karleth, While I understand that the Shadar-kai are prone to certain excesses, I must also be absolutely clear - if those urges interfere with your ability to serve the empire, you will inevitably face Netheril's wrath. I trust that you will put your house in order immediately.
  • Find Tyrus's 8th MissiveIcon tooltip.png Inside Shar Manor, behind a locked door: Only the Morninglord Adara Semple in Harvest Hall can unlock this door and is a rare spawn. Escort her to Shar Manor, enter and she will unlock the door. : Commander Karleth, I see no need to eliminate the lizardfolk that infest the tunnels beneath the Prison. At worst they are minor distraction. At best, we might be able to turn them to our advantage. Offer them a hefty bribe once we control the rest of the prison. They are easily persuaded with coin.
  • Find Tyrus's 9th Missive: New Recruits, Welcome to the service of Netheril. You now serve a mighty empire and a glorious cause. The Twelve Princes and the City of Shade may seem very far away at the moment. Yet soon Netheril will come to Cormyr, and Wheloon will become the newest province of our empire!
  • Find Tyrus's 10th Missive: New Recruits, Netheril is the greatest empire Toril has ever seen - a land of flying cities and boundless magic. Then for long centuries Netheril slept and its bounteous fields faded into desert. Yet soon we will eclipse even our former glory. The future belongs to Netheril! The future belongs to you!
  • Find Tyrus's 11th Missive: General Marthir, Oldstone Hall requires more troops to guard the Shadowfell Nexus. Send over some of your new recruits immediately. If you require additional reinforcements, enlist some of the faithful from Shar Manor.
  • Find Tyrus's 12th Missive: New Recruits, By joining our cause you have not just sworn to serve Netheril. You have sworn to serve Shar as well. Everything our empire does, it does for the glory of the Mistress of the Night. Soon the dark goddess will hold sway over all of Faerun!
  • Find Tyrus's 13th Missive: New Recruits, Once you have been trained you will be sent outside the Prison to strike against Cormyr. To do that, you must travel through the Shadowfell. Fear not - we control the Shadowfell here. The dark creatures that dwell there will not harm you.
  • Find Tyrus's 14th Missive: My Lords, Shadows are useful tools, and the prisoners make for eager, but unskilled, army recruits. Nevertheless, I feel that additional regular recruits are required to make the most of our position here in Wheloon. A handful of Wizards are no substitute for a horde of well-drilled Shadar-kai.
  • Find Tyrus's 15th MissiveIcon tooltip.png Inside the Decrepit Barn. : My Lords, My Congratulations on recovering the Mythallar. It will surely be a great asset to our operations in the Storm Horns. And one day I hope to see Karsuss Folly undone.
  • Find Tyrus's 16th MissiveIcon tooltip.png Inside the Bookstore, through a secret door at the east end of the final room. : My Lords, I know that in the end our operations here may be a feint, and the real, final blow to Cormyr will come from Sembra. Yet Wheloon Prison is now a deadly dagger pointed at the heart of Cormyr. I would not be doing my duty if I did not suggest that we drive it home as soon as possible.
  • Find Tyrus's 17th MissiveIcon tooltip.png Inside Shar Manor, towards the north. : My Lords, Our people are unsurpassed in matters of magic. Why then do we have so few truly accomplished wizards assigned to Wheloon? My own talents are entirely devoted to maintaining the Shadowfell Nexus, and General Marthir is busy with recruits. Just a few more Shades would make all the difference here.
  • Find Tyrus's 18th Missive: General Marthir, I wouldn't worry too much about Shadowfell creatures slipping into the Prison. A Nightcrawler attack or two will give the prisoners a healthy respect for the shadow! Yet keep your eyes on the Night Hags. They are unreliable and not to be trusted.
  • Find Tyrus's 19th MissiveIcon tooltip.png On a roof near 5. : General Marthir, Allow me to commend you on your recent recruitment efforts. It's vital that we train these new recruits as quickly as possible. Prince Telamont wishes to move forward on several fronts, and they will need every man we can put into the field.
  • Find Tyrus's 20th MissiveIcon tooltip.png Inside the Criminal Hideout. : General Marhir, I'm told that several adventurers have repeatedly disrupted our operations inside the Prison. It is irrelevant whether these troublemakers are agents of Cormyr or mere looters. No one interferes with Netheril's plans. Hunt them down immediately!
  • Find Tyrus's 21st Missive: I must not be distracted in my work. Maintaining the Shadowfell Nexus is quite taxing, even for one of my abilities. For this reason no one is to approach Oldstone Hall.
  • Find Tyrus's 22nd Missive: General Marthir, If you lack troops for guard duty, have the wizards prepare some simple spare traps. An animated object is far less expensive than an ordinary soldier, and almost as intelligent.
  • Find Tyrus's 23rd Missive: To the Netherese Forces, For centuries the kingdom of Cormyr has gone unchallenged. Its people have grown fat and careless, its rules have become blind to the world around them. Yet all that changes, starting now. Starting now, the old kingdom falls and Netheril rises. Starting now, the shadow falls over Cormyr!
  • Find Tyrus's 24th Missive: My Lords, Once our operations here in Wheloon are complete I will return the Nether Scroll to the city of Shade. My research into it is far from complete. This scroll is part of the Planus Mechanus, and I'm sure we could use it to reach other planes. Imagine what we could do if Netheril's reach extended from Celestia to the Nine Hells!
