The Ruined City of Orofin

Orofin, as it is now know, was once the great city of Orolin (in fact, in the game, it used to be Old Thalos). The city itself is infested with many Lamia, who'll attack you if they see you and can backstab for a surprising amount. At the centre of the city, in the Temple of Orolin (To) is the reason for the city's downfall: A Beholder. Be careful when you attack it.

On the edge of the Anauroch Desert, the city is surrounded by dangerous places, notably the Lion's Eye (Le) and Lardeth (La).

Above each of the three, accessible corners of the city is a watchtower, staffed by a Golem. Each isn't too hard - a medium level warrior should have no trouble with them.

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 4s2wn4w4n2w3s8wswnwn4w. You must be flying to use this route.
