|Erika, Bandit and Spire Chasm|
Bandits are operating between Fort Saffron and Fort Spire. You can find out that they are getting through a secret passage in Fort Saffron and also who is leading them. Although you rid Avernum of some annoying rogues, nobody seems willing to reward you adaquately.
You can get to Erika by the boat from the Northern Waters as recomended in the Hints Book. I find it easier to go west from Spire and use the Orb of Thralni.
You need the Orb of Thralni to fly across the chasm to reach a hidden passage which leads to a cave where you can find the Alien Blade.
Not a lot here, as the cave has already been ransacked.
After helping some Avernum sodiers out, you can explore this cave an find the perpetrator of the bandit problem.
There are lots of Poison Fungi and Cave Slimes wandering around. At the end of a Path through some lava fields are three emeralds. If you take them two Drakes and six Imps appear.
If you free this imprisoned Haakai it turns on you, backed up by 6 Vengeful Shades. They do not drop any treasure but after killing them you find a Strength Bracelet.
The demon lord is imprisoned in a bottle in this isolated building.
Here is an Invulnerability Potion.
If you free this Haakai, it decides not to kill you but tells you to kill Grah-Hoth who is imprisoned south of here. Unfortunately for the haakai the enchantment put on it causes it to explode.
This fort which is manned by the souls of people killed by Grah-Hoth was erected to stop anyone getting to his prison.
If you decide to attack this ogre village, it will be defended by 11 Ogres and 5 Ogre Mages. They drop some useful equipment. When you search the village after the fight you find a Crystal Shield.
An old crone (P on the Worldmap) will ask you to find some mould for her. There are six charges located at various places in the area:
If you bring all the mould to her, she reveals herself as Erika and lets you get through the second door of her tower.
This is the Empire fort Khoth destroyed in his search for his stolen Scroll.
On the Worldmap this cave is refered to simply as "Cavern". When you get in the status line says "Strange Cave". But there is another "Strange Cave" in the Hints Book. I refere to this one as the "Strange Cave (Cavern)" and the other one as the "Weird Cave".
There are no patches of potion ingredients in this area.
