Quests & NPC's


There is a monolith in the Brigand Camp just northeast from the Shadowy Catacombs, which is the quickest and easiest way to get there.

If the monolith can't be used, the next closest location is Sloeford. The Shadowy Catacombs are southwest from Sloeford, and can be reached either by following the west or south roads. The easiest way though, is walking west to the Brigand Camp, and from then walk northeast to Shadowy Catacombs


Only one enemy may be found inside the catacombs: Tybor. He is the apprentice of Necromancer Syliar, and must be killed in order to start the main campaign (SW and SP only).

Outside the catacombs there is a cemetery, where some brigands can be found. If you click on the graves there is a chance you may have to fight a zombie or two. There is a chance that you will pick up some health potions and other treasure as well.
