The Red Fog Graveyard

I checked out now hard this zone was supposed to be and the estimate of 15 to 25 seems right to me. The earliest monsters you wander into give you anything from 3K up to around 12K, easy for even the least of adventurers.

Once you delve a little deeper into the cemetary itself (without dropping into any graves) the hardest thing you'll find is the 130K vines at the Vine encrusted East Wall (Ve).

The aim of the zone is as follows, you need to get into the graveyard itself then secure a number of keys to the three, iron crypt doors before defeating each of the treasure guardians and finally the Shadow Demon.

To get into the graveyard you'll need the key to the Gate Inot the Cemetary () from the hidden, bloated red spider in the Upper Loft (Ul). You have to unlock the gate and then 'push gate' to open it. Once inside you should seek out the Rotting Corpses and kill as many as you need to to gain a Tiny Sword, Staff and Shield - each being a key. The Tiny Staff opens I1, the Shield I2 and the Sword I3.

Once in the first area (beneath I1) you'll find a lot of crystal skeletons. One of these will carry a red skull - another key, but this time to the skull door in the Crypt Tunnel (Cy). Unlock the door with 'unlock skull east' and open it with 'push skull east'. There's a giant crystal skeleton snake worth 50K guarding a coffin, the key to the coffin is a rusty iron shaped ankh sceptre on the corpse of the snake. Be warned, the snake can poison and paralyze you and at lower levels that can be fatal.

The Tiny Shield key unlocks I2 and you can work your way to the Evil Wraith guarding another coffin full of gold.

Finally the Tiny Sword opens I3, and leads down to the Demon's Lair. You must lift the lid of the coffin to open a doorway down further. There are a number of interesting pieces of equipment but, most of all, this area should make good money for a medium level Chump.

If you'd like to make a quick run to this zone, we recommend the following directions, starting at The Common in Shadowdale: 15enenene2n3en3en2en2ene5n.
