    Guillotines

    This nasty looking area is not that nasty actually. Just be careful when walking around, as only a couple of characters can walk side by side on these walkways. When you first approach this area you hear Dedral cry out to disable the guillotines so that he can come through. Well, this is quite fortunate for you but don't get too excited just yet.
    There is a trap here that doesn't appear at all when you try to detect it, I've noted it's location on the map above. There are a couple of thieves on inaccessible balconies and they pepper you with arrows. Return the favour, although I must say that you will not be able to loot their corpses.

    Kill the Shadow Thieves here.

SHADOW THIEF: 2 x 1400 exp, Unknown Loot;
PRIEST OF MASK: 2000 exp, Black Opal.

    Ambuscade

    It seemed easy so far didn't it? Rightly so, it turns out that you were lured here by Dedral to be slaughtered like sheep. The minute you step into the center of this room, the ambushers will reveal themselves and assault you from different sides. Beware of the two big traps on the floor, have your thief disarm them. Concentrate your attacks on Dedral first - he hits hard with his katana, summon some monsters to distract the archers. With careful planning this battle can be easy, otherwise things can get out of hand really fast.

    Kill Dedral and his thieves.
DEDRAL: 10000 exp, Ring of Lock Picks, Angel Skin Ring, Full Plate Mail, Katana, Helmet, Medium Shield;

DISARM THE TRAP: 2 x 1750 exp;
LOOT: 9 Gold.
 

    Button

    After you have managed to deal with Dedral's ambuscade, walk up the trapped north corridor to reach the button. When you click the button, you'll hear a door open in the distance - this is the first magical door leading to Aran's Sanctum. For this you will also get some nice experience. After you have done that, it is time to make your way back to the ambush place and take an eastern and then northern corridor in order to reach the wizard named Haz, he may have the key to the second door of Aran Linvail's Sanctum.

    Disarm the traps in the corridor and near the spinning spiky cylinder.
DISARM THE TRAP: 3 x 1750 exp.
CLICK THE BUTTON: 17500 exp.

    Haz

    There are two more traps on the way to Haz's room. Kill Haz and his associates in order to gain possession of the key to Shadow Master's Sanctum.

    Disarm the traps in two corridors.

    Check out the two boxes for some treasure.
LOOT: 12 Gold.

    Aran Linvail's Sanctum

    This is the holy of holies of the Shadow Thief Guild, the personal bedroom of its Shadow Master - Aran Linvail. Prepare yourself for a tough fight once you open that door. The good thing is that you can cast all the preparatory spells, use scrolls and potions just outside the sanctum and only then you can open the door.
    When you open the door, Aran Linvail will be really surprised to find out that Bodhi had the guts to assault the Shadow Thief Guild. No matter, just wipe everyone out here. The biggest challenge here is posed by Aran Linvail himself plus a Shadow Thief Mage and a Priest of Mask. These spell casters can turn your most skilful pre-battle preparations into a useless chore. So in this battle apply anti-spellcaster techniques. Do not forget to cast True Sight or Detect Invisibility because the Shadow Thieves will backstab you. Aran Linvail will also gate in a Nabassu, so protecting your party members from evil would not be a bad idea as Nabassu's gaze will make your (N)PC run around in fear.
    One technique that can be successfully applied is the following: take your fighters and make them drink Potions of Protection from Fire and Scrolls of Protection from Fire until their fire resistance hits 100 %. Now open the door, walk your fighters in and, while they are distracting everyone, start hurling Fireballs inside the room, you can also use Potions of Explosions etc. This way your fighters will be unaffected by all the fireballs, but the barrage of them will most definitely kill all the pesky thieves hiding in the shadows and disrupt the spells being cast by the spellcasters in the room. When your Fireballs dry up, start summoning monsters as additional distractions. In the meantime your fighters can kill one spellcaster at a time.

    After you have killed Aran Linvail and his guards you can return to Bodhi to report of your success. But before you do that, check out the contents of the room, there are some good items to be found.

    Kill Aran Linvail and his Shadow Thieves.
