Bridge District (AR0500)

Lieutenant Aegisfield

    When you first enter Bridge District, near the northern gate, you will be hailed by Lieutenant Aegisfield, he warns you to be careful on the streets at night because there has been a string of strange killings. Apparently there is "Jack the Ripper" out there, some maniac who flays people alive. Lieutenant Aegisfield tells you that Faraji has found the latest victim. Lieutenant Aegisfield asks you to report to him with information regarding these killings. He also mentions old Rampah and a woman Rose as would be victims. Perhaps you should go and talk to them.

    Once you talked to Faraji and Mrs. Cragmoon, you can tell Aegisfield about Mrs. Cragmoon, he'll take the appropriate measures. If you didn't collect enough evidence, i.e., you only talked to Rose Bouquet, Aegisfield will say that he needs more evidence to accuse Rejiek, however, at this point you are free to go and confront Rejiek about the murders.
    After you are done with the tanner, you can come back to Aegisfield to collect your reward.

    Confronted tanner but did not present enough evidence to Aegisfield.
NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE: 45000 exp, 500 Gold.
    Confronted tanner and later presented enough evidence to Aegisfield.
ENOUGH EVIDENCE: 45000 exp, Party Reputation Increased by 1, 500 Gold.

    However, if you've presented Aegisfield with enough evidence right away, he'll go to check out the tanner's shop for himself and you will find him dead there. At this point you'll be able to return his body to the Chief Inspector Brega in the Council of Six Building and get your reward that way.

Fallen Paladins

    Near the eastern exit from the district, behind the building you will find the Fallen Paladins (only after you have accepted the mission from Sir Ryan Trawl from the Order of the Radiant Heart). Once you come up here, you will essentially walk in on a scuffle between the Fallen Paladins and the Shadow Thieves. The Fallen Paladin, Reynald de Chatillon, and the Shadow Thief, Rindus, are trying to divide the territory for their not so honest business. Shortly, a fight will ensue and, at this point, you could help the Fallen Paladins by attacking the Shadow Thieves.

    If you've helped defeating the Shadow Thieves,  Reynald de Chatillon will ask you if you are interested in employment. He tells you to retrieve Anarg's Cup. This cup in inside the building of the Order of the Radiant Heart. At this point you can go to he building of the Radiant Heart in the Temple District and try to procure the cup.
    Once you bring the cup, Reynald de Chatillon will introduce you to Anarg. At this point you shall have two options: to join Anarg's gang or not. If you decide to join, Anarg shall see through your lie when you tell him that you'd like to join him because he still has spies within the Order. At this point a fight ensues. Shall you refuse Anarg's offer, you will still be forced to fight his gang, although at this point Reyanld de Chatillon will refuse to participate in this fight and leave. So you'll end up fighting Anarg's goons no matter what.
    After you slay Anarg you should return to the Order of the Radiant Heart for your reward.

Muggers (near Balthis Estate)

    While you are on your way south, you will be approached by one Mugger who demands all your gold or else... Well, you can either give all your gold to him or say that he will be the one regretting the fact of mugging the wrong person.

You can join into the fight, but the spoils of war are meager. During the fight, one of the poor bastards will die (always Shank ?), but the winner will not get the love of Bubbles, she'll just leave.

    If you kill the fighters you'll get some measly loot.
SHANK: 20 exp, 1 Gold, Short Sword;
CARBOS: 20 exp, 1 Gold, Short Sword.

Kidnapper's House

    If you come here (at night???) after rescuing Tridir from his grave, you will see Am-Si, a man in red shirt. If you confront him with the information about his crimes he'll run inside the nearby house. Follow him there.

    Ground Floor (AR0507)

... to the Second Floor Kidnapper's house - Ground Floor (AR0507)

    Second Floor (AR0508)

... to the Ground Floor Kidnapper's house - Second Floor (AR0508)

    Once you come up here you shall see another hostage, Lady Elgea, at which point there are three things you can do. You can set her free right away, for this you'll gain the most experience. You can think on the matter some time and then free her, she'll get upset that you didn't free her right away and you will receive a smaller experience reward. The third choice is to actually collect a ransom for her, as is suggested by Edwin.
    If you open the closet, you will find a ransom note there which explains where and when to collect the ransom. Should you choose to go this route, then you'd need to meet Welther in front of the Copper Coronet after nightfall. He'll ask to show him the Ransom Note so as to confirm that you are real kidnappers and then he will give you the agreed ransom, no not gold, but a pair of Silver Pantaloons.
    Should you be foolish enough to return here after collecting the ransom, you will be met by Cowled Enforcers and Amnish Guards. They'll want to persecute you for your crime.

    Scour the room for treasure (two locked chests, table and a closet).

Unmarked House

    This house has two doors, both of them are trapped. One of the locked doors, with the Disintegration trap, leads to the secret location of the Twisted Rune and the other one leads to a crypt with the Elemental Lich.

    Disarm the traps on the unmarked house.
DISARM THE TRAP: 2 x 2750 exp;
PICK THE LOCK: 950 exp.

The Twisted Rune (AR1008)

The Twisted Rune (AR1008)

    This derelict house, that isn't even marked on the overhead map has two trapped doors and one of them leads to the Twisted Rune. But to enter inside you will need a Rogue Stone, you can find it, for instance, in Mae'Var's Guildhall - a merchant named Gorch has it for sale. Once you have the Rogue Stone in your inventory and you enter through the door, the Rogue Stone will disappear and you will be teleported to a secret hideout of the infamous Twisted Rune.
    You should really come here being prepared for the battle of your life. Defeating the Twisted Rune is a difficult task, but the spoils are worth it. Once you defeat them, you will be a proud owner of the Staff of the Magi.

    When you first teleport here, you shall appear in the small circular room. Do not advance forward, make all your battle preparations here, cast spells, drink potions, lay traps. As soon as you walk into the big circular room, you will trigger the appearance of the lich Shangalar, he will be surprised to see you here and since you've found out about the location of the Twisted Rune, Shangalar decides to kill you.
    At this point, run back to the small circular room and fight all the monsters there - this way you will be able to deal with them one at a time. Shangalar is a powerful lich so, in order to defeat him, prepare a little surprise for him - set all the snares possible. After the little chit-chat, Shangalar will teleport to the small circular room and this is why you should've set the snares because, if you've set enough of them, they might even kill him outright. If not, apply the Lich Fighting Techniques to defeat him and try to stay out of sight of the other enemies. Shangalar will cast Project Image and the usual array of defensive and offensive Lich spells, so do not forget to cast True Sight and the anti-mage spells. Spell Immunity: Necromancy would really come in handy here. If you weakened him with traps, he will be much easier to deal with.
    Revanek - this guy is a fighter and falls easily to melee attacks.
    Shyressa is a vampire, regenerates and level drains when hits, so Negative Plane Protection is a must against her. Either use the spell, Amulet of Power or Mace of Disruption +2 to stand up toe to toe with this nasty vampire. She should be your target number two due to the nasty level drain. Just remember to lure them one at a time. Apply the old "Divide and Conquer" principle.
    Vaxall is a big nasty beholder, it's eye attacks are fast and furious, however he can be easily defeated if one of your characters has a shield of Balduran or simply good saving throws. When killed, Vaxall drops his eye that you can use to get out of this level.
    Layene is the mage with the Staff of the Magi, watch out - she has a nasty spell repertoire. She usually gates in a Pit Fiend, casts Meteor Swarm, Time Stop etc., however falls easily once everyone else has been eradicated. Stay away from the Pit Fiend that she summons.
    Congratulations, you've eradicated the Twisted Rune !!!

    After you have defeated the lot of them and grabbed yourself a Staff of the Magi, bring the Beholder's Eye to the Cauldron and drop it there, this will power on the machine along the northern wall. Activating the machine will teleport you back to the Bridge District.

    Eradicate the Twisted Rune.
SHANGALAR: 50000 exp, 3890 Gold;
REVANEK: 6000 exp;
SHYRESSA: 10500 exp;
VAXALL: 14000 exp, Beholder Eye;
LAYENE: 4000 exp, Staff of the Magi, 25 Gold.

Elemental Lich

    Through the other trapped door you shall enter a house eerily similar to the Kangaxx's house in the Docks District.

    Ground Floor (AR0525)

... to the Crypt Elemental Lich's House - Ground Floor (AR0525)

    Although the ground floor looks innocent enough, nonetheless this house hides great evil. Beneath it lies hidden another sarcophagus with a nasty lich. Check out this floor for treasure and descend the stairs into the crypt.

    Scour the room for treasure (two tables and a sack).
LOOT: 19 Gold, Potion of Regeneration, Andar Gem, Shandon Gem.

    Crypt (AR0526)

... to the Ground Floor Elemental Lich's House - Cryptr (AR0526)

    When you lift the lid of the sarcophagus you will be able to see the gilded torso of a skeleton, in the meantime an Elemental Lich appears and says that you are foolish to follow Kangaxx. Elemental Lich is a powerful adversary, but can be defeated if you apply some tips and tricks of the trade (refer to our Lich Fighting Techniques). It casts the usual repertoire of defensive (Improved Mantle, Mirror Image, Protection from Fire, Fire Shield, Globe of Invulnerability etc.) and offensive spells (Time Stop, Gate, Meteor Swarm).
    If you have a Cloak of the Sewers or a Polymorph spell, transform one character into a Mustard Jelly - they have 100% magic resistance and other high resistances as well. Since Lich is a magical creature and will attack you mostly with magic or summons, have one character play the role of a jelly-shield, i.e. transform into a Mustard Jelly, walk up to the Lich and start hitting it. You may miss a lot, but that doesn't matter - you will distract the Lich from the rest of your party, it will concentrate all of its magical attacks on the highly resistant creature while the rest of your party can pummel it with ranged weapons and spells. This is a simple technique to defeat any Lich. Just watch out for those summons - take them out as soon as they appear or your jelly-shield may be in trouble.
    After you dispatch the Elemental Lich, take the Golden Torso from the sarcophagus.

    Kill the Elemental Lich and loot the sarcophagus.
ELEMENTAL LICH: 22000 exp;
LOOT: Golden Torso.

At this point you can kill the spirits but you will get more experience if you kill Neb first at which point the children's spirits will be set free.

    You can make Rampah talk if you give him a few gold pieces. At first he'll be very stingy with the information but seeing the glow of the gold pieces that you gave him will make him talk. He'll say that he found a piece of hide near the flayed body, he'll sell it to you for 100 gold pieces. (what if you tell him that you do not have that much gold?)

    You can talk to Bel Dalemark after you've talked to Rose at which point he'll say that there are two more things that smell like guril berries. One of them is the oak bark and the other is solik berries. Guril berries are used to make "intimate" potions, oak bark - used to make tannin and you can inquire about it at the local tanner's shop. Finally,  solik berries are used to make mumbleberry pie, however, right now it is the berry off-season. Bel will give you the samples so that Rose can smell them again.

Mrs. Cragmoon

    Near Neb's house you can find Mrs. Cragmoon, she sells potions and if you have a thief you can drink some potions of Master Thievery and steal the potions from her.

Apparently, in order to finish the "project" you are supposed to meet a man in the Umar Hills, you should signal your identity by purchasing the book The History of Zhentarim. You are then supposed to say the true name of this contact and to do that you are given detailed instructions on how to come up with this name, for this you would need the name of tanner's master. Here are the instructions:
        Our names are the same in their scale and their cut.

She asks you to return both Haer' Dalis and his gem back to the troupe. She doesn't trust the city guard to do this mission, therefore she's on the lookout for the adventurers of just your type. As a reward Raelis Shai will offer 300 Gold and all the treasure that you can find in the wizard's dungeon, however, if you bring back the gem as well - she'll give even more. You can get to Mekrath's lair through the city's sewer.

    Upon your return from the Mekrath's Lair, you should go talk to Raelis Shai. She'll mention that Haer'Dalis has already made it here and inquire whether you've brought the Portal Gem. You'll receive your small gold reward of 300 Gold pieces. If you (Korgan or Edwin, should you have them in your party) demand money for the gem, Raelis Shai will get upset, however, will give you the money for it. It turns out though that this is not a mere worthless gem and it seems that you have been fooled by these petty actors. This gem opens some kind of a conduit between the Astral and the Prime Material planes. If you decide to give the gem, Raelis Shai will give you less money for it.
    If you confront Haer'Dalis about him having lied to you - he'll explain that his misfortunes began with a single play "A Comedy of Terrors" that he didn't even write. He and his troupe come from the city of Sigil - a planar hub of sorts. Hours after this satirical play the theater was ruined and they were forced to flee. Apparently the satire was about Duke Rowan Darkwood who didn't much like this satire to such an extent that he sent bounty hunters to hunt the troupe down.
    Once you give the gem, Raelis Shai will begin opening the conduit, although she'll warn that whatever is on the other side of the conduit - will come through it. Expecting trouble, she'll ask you for help in holding off whatever comes out of that portal. At this point you'll have three options: refuse to help her, agree to help her or agree o help and then betray. You can get an extra 1000 out of Raelis Shai  if you help he deal with the extra-planar creatures. If you refuse to help, Raelis will begin the summoning when you leave.
    These rewards do not depend on the fact whether you help Mekrath or kill him.

    Once the portal is opened the bounty hunters will appear and try to snatch the troupe members. Raelis's attempts to convince the bounty hunter that they were set up will fall on deaf ears, the fight will ensue. You can help Raelis Shai by defeating the bounty hunters or betray her. The choice is yours. However, bear in mind that if you betray Raelis - the portal will close and you will fully miss one area - the Astral Prison.
    The bounty hunter has captured the actors and if you want to release them you'd have to follow them into the portal to the Astral Prison.

    If you've betrayed Raelis Shai, after their capture Samuel Thunderburp will come to investigate all the commotion downstairs. He'll ask about the actors' whereabouts and the fate of the Playhouse. If you say that Raelis has left the deed to the playhouse to you and you intend to run it Samuel will introduce you to a person who can help you run the day-to-day matters of the playhouse. This man is Higgold, recently from Calimport. He'll tell you that he needs a week to find actors and a play and six weeks after that for rehearsing it. All that he needs from you is to make a financial investment and make certain decision from time to time. If you agree to his proposal, he'll depart to look for actors.
    What if you do not intend to run it ?
