The Lower Tombs (AR0801)*

Antenos - Bodhi's servant.

    Check out the locked chest and a table near the entrance for some loot.
PICK THE LOCK: 400 exp;
LOOT: Wooden Stake (2), Potion of Insight, 3 Gold.

Pool of Blood

    You can enter the pool of blood to gain a nice mace, although you will take some damage, but it is well worth it.

    Enter the Pool of blood.
LOOT: Mace of Disruption +1, Damage Taken (10).


Fetch - a slave in the employ of Bodhi. He does what he is named after.

Chore - in the corridor leading to Bodhi.

Main Room

Cohn Ta'glaen - wants to be addressed Master Cohn.

    Bodhi - you can find her here after you've agreed to work for her guild.
    After you have dealt with the shadow thieves in the Docks, report o Bodhi here and each one of your party members will get tons of experience.
    Upon completion of this mission Bodhi gives you a choice of two other missions - you have to choose one. One of them is a heroic like "Saving Private Ryan" kind of mission - you have to rescue a Shadow Thief traitor named Palern Flynn. Bodhi tells you that he is inside the Shadow Thieves Guild on the second floor. If the traitor dies - you fail, simple as that.
    This task is easy enough, just walk in to the Shadow Thief Guild, go to the second floor (AR0306) and kill all the thieves. They aren't really attacking Palern Flynn, so just do not toss fireballs into the room where he's in and you'll be OK. Upon the completion of the mission return to Bodhi for an experience reward.
    The second, bloodier choice, is to go and kill a merchant named Senior Armagaran Vulova in his house in the Government District and plant the evidence against the Shadow Thieves, by putting it in the fountain. She will give you the Shadow Thief Cloak and Shadow Thief Dagger.
    If you've spared Vulova's life, Bodhi will berate you for that and you will get no experience reward. However, if you've killed him, you'll be generously rewarded with experience.

    After finishing the second mission, Bodhi will give you one final task - to kill the Shadow Master himself, Aran Linvail. Aran Linvail is in the basement of the Shadow Thief Guild, so you'll need to procure a key, Bodhi suggests "asking" Gaelan Bayle for it. You are to return to Bodhi when Aran Linvail is dead. Bodhi also says that one of her employees, Tizzak, who is missing as the Shadow Thieves may have him, may tell you how to access Aran Linvail's sanctum.

    When you report to Bodhi about the death of Aran Linvail, you'll receive a large experience reward and she will tell you that she can help you find Imoen and Irenicus, although she says not to slay Irenicus until she is satisfied with him too. Bodhi knows that you are a Child of Bhaal, and proceeds to tell you that Irenicus was trying to help you by releasing your true potential and you, apparently, misinterpreted the effects of this for torture. Perhaps more striking is when she tells you that Jon Irenicus is her brother. Regardless, she is set to help you and knows where to find Irenicus and Imoen - they are locked up in the "Residence for the Magically Deviant" or Spellhold, which is located on an island. Apparently Bodhi used the 15000 gold you gave her to secure your, and her, passage to the island.

He gets really angry at them. However, simply getting to this area while helping Korgan find the book will net you some experience. Beware, right near the entrance to this tomb there is a trap, so disarm it before walking in.
    Once you are inside you will be "greeted" by a Mummy, apparently Nevaziah's student, who confirms that Kaza's tome is stolen and you are about to die. Prove it wrong.
    Once you slay the Mummy, Korgan goes on a tirade about his former associates and swears to dance on their graves in the end. Korgan suggests to head over to Pimlico's Estate in order to catch them and take the Book of Kaza.

Apparently the Cowled Wizards have found out that Nevaziah and his pupils were practicing magic without permission and so, Nevaziah was forced to flee together with his students and books to this dungeon. After the initial chitchat with the lich, Korgan will step in and ask about the Book of Kaza at which point Nevaziah will answer that one of his pupils has it nearby.
    Edwin will demand the Nether Scroll from Nevaziah, but the "senile lich" will not want to give it away and instead wants to destroy it. This will really anger Edwin as he wants the scroll for himself. You'll have to kill the lich to get the scroll. After you kill the lich and Edwin picks up the scroll, you will get a nice experience reward and Edwin will say that he needs some time to study this precious scroll.
