  • After you clear the demons in Lost Chapel, it is time to retake the Drezen. If Queen Galfrey joined the crusader, she will lead the charge.
    • The Hell Knights, eagle watch, and Nurah all propose a plan to the commander. However, Nurah’s plan turns out to be a trap. If you follow her advice, you will found yourself in the Drezen prison with lots of cultists and Minotaurs.
    • If you agreed Hell Knight’s plan, you will appear at the west corner of the map. You also lose 10 morale. Regil needs to be in your party if you choose this route.

  • There are three hidden key holes (on top right of inner wall) to unlock the last gate before the balor and avoid having to fight the waves that come when you batter it down. The keys can be found on enemies in Prison, in tarven, and in temple.
  • While inside the fort, you are also affected by Demonic Murmurs. (Every ten minutes you need to succeed a 14 Will check or suffer Charisma damage.) In order to remove the debuff, you need to find the torture chamber on the right side of the fort, then activate murals on the wall. (Need to pass Knowledge World 20, Knowledge Arcane 25, Lore Religion 30. Fail the checks will summon a group of enemies.)
  • To the south of murals room, there are several undead enemies. Once you defeat them you can pass a Athletic check to reveal a hidden room, there’s a vampire sleep in a coffin, kill it to get a +2 rapier.
  • If you have radiance (the long sword you found in Shield Maze.), the dwarf blacksmith Vhane at the furnace will upgrade it to a +2 cold iron long sword.
  • There are two Sword of Valor banners in the Drezen fort, the real one and a fake one. The one in the west hall is the fake one, touch it will only trigger the trap, and summons fireballs and a large group of demons. 
  • The real banner is hidden in a room in the south. To reach there you need to fight your way through a large pool of corpses, and use the secret passage revealed by “Yaniel”.

The Music of the Abyss Walkthrough

Travel slightly northeast of Nameless Ruins to Leper’s Smile to trigger this quest. After choosing who to sacrifice to the vescavors (you can go with various party members if you “look into the faces of your companions”), decide whether to fight or scatter. The former option will see whoever you chose to sacrifice die (well, most of them)

The Music of the Abyss Walkthrough

Buff your party (particularly anything that helps Fortitude) and equip non-piercing/slashing weapons if possible, then press forward as you fight your way through the swarms.

Take your first left and loot the camp to acquire Silky Veilds (robe). In the southwest corner with the two swarms you’ll find Ring of Stitches. Slightly north of that you’ll encounter Vescavor Royal Guard and find Keen Shortspear +2.

The Music of the Abyss Walkthrough

In the center of the map you’ll find a narrow crevice, from which a strange noise emanates. Passing the Perception check will reveal a person of small stature at the bottom; failing the Athletics check will see the vescavors eat him alive.

The Music of the Abyss Walkthrough

Further north you’ll find the Vescavor Queen at last. Buff up then target her with Fortitude spells like Ray of Sickening (after using Vulnerability Curse for her high spell resistance). Keep a close eye on your tank too, as they’ll take big damage here.

After the fight, you’ll discover a handkerchief was planted on you to attract the vescavors. Gather up the queen’s goop if you want to use her swarms in the fight to come.

Nurah will show up next and ascertain someone recently summoned the Vescavor Queen. Loot the body in the corner afterward to acquire Hunter’s Assurance (shortbow).

Wight cave

Take the exit into the cave, where you’ll fight Wights. Northwest, along the water you’ll find a skeleton holding Belt of Incredible Dexterity +4.

Further along you’ll encounter Garkel and his Wight minions. All of them will continue to rise after being “killed” unless you use the Wand of Zacharius in the box along the shoreline. If you go with the evil option, the corpses will be sent into oblivion and you will earn 54XP; the good option will force you to fight and kill them. Loot the area afterward to acquire Curse Pilaff (recipe).

The Music of the Abyss Walkthrough

Back at the entrance, take the northeast path now to find Longsword +2 along the left wall with the larvae. Continue on north to fight two Vrocks, which should drop easily. Loot the humans afterward to find Radiant Kukri +1.

The Music of the Abyss Walkthrough

Backtrack a bit, going south then east to battle a couple Derakni. Post-fight, look for the Athletics check on the northwest side. Pass it to fight Hunter Retriever, the boss. Haste + Ray of Exhaustion will work wonders here. After the battle, loot Retriever’s Claw (dagger) from the body as well as Amulet of Apothecary from the human body to the right.

Loot Voice of Hollow (1H mace) in the rear corner (east side of the map) near where you fought the Derakni, then exit the cave, making sure to take Vermin Bane Elven Curved Blade +2 with you.

Take the ladder above the ritual symbol out to the world map.

The Secrets of Creation Walkthrough

This quest is unlocked after you solved the puzzle at Conundrum Unsolved. The solution is pictured below.

In a random encounter, you will meet an ancient spirit, answer his question (Lore: Nature checks) and he will reward you the key to Legacy of the Ancients. Later, you can meet that spirit again in various different random encounters, each time you answered his question correctly, you will get some high-level scrolls, and he will reveal one of the locations (Forgotten Secrets, Final Veil, Core of Riddle) related to the quest.

You can find slabs in Ravaged Long House, Shrine of Sacrilege, Bone Hills, and Place of Execution.

Solutions to puzzles can be deduced from the tiles places around the outside. They indicated which symbols must be used in the corresponding row, but not how many. One symbol means only that symbol in that row. You can work out the pattern from there, using the outer tiles to help you build the final picture. (Solutions can be found on the location pages).

Once you finished puzzles at Forgotten Secrets (slabs at Shrine of Sacrilege), Final Veil (slabs at Bone Hills), Core of Riddle (slabs at Ravaged Long House) and Legacy of the Ancients (slabs at Place of Execution), return to Heart of Mystery (slabs at Laughing Caverns) and enter the Enigma.
