|Lands of the Arachnids, Formello and Everything in Between|
The whole of this area is worth exploring fairly early on. There are no wandering monsters in the Formello area, near Motrax or in the mining area. In the Spider Lands to the west of Fort Draco you must expect to bump into Araneae.
The spider prisoner is locked up here.
Beside the remote lake there is a Hut where you can learn the recipe for Greymould Salve (B on the Worldmap).
You can only find the Stone Key after Motrax has told you where it is (C on the Worldmap).
If you decide to leave your boat at this point you will find a Blessed Dagger and two groups of Giant Lizards.
There are some treasure, a level 3 spell and a quartz crystal here.
When you break through the hidden entance you will be greeted by a pack of about 10 giant lizards. After dispatching them you can explore the three caves. Each one yields an emerald .
There is a fishing vilage populated by giants. They do not seem willing to talk to you and I have noticed no ill effects on killing them.
Here are some friendly clerics who will teach you Return Life (F on the Worldmap).
The miners will sell gemstones and crystals at a pretty average price.
A secluded village in a cave with a lot of morose Sliths moping around and complaining about the loss of their Answering Stone. You need a relatively high level party and lots of energy potions to get it back for them.
Mind Crystal: Spirit Call
Visiting Motrax is a must.
The mines in the north have the best ore in Avernum. If you decide to look around this area you will find that you are not very welcome. There is not anything to pick up anyway.
Here is the natural hot spring that Gary the Innkeeper in Silvar asked you to find.
The Nephilim Fortress where Evelyn's necklace is hidden.
A pool hidden in a swampy area to the south of the SE arm of the river. Drinking from it poisons you.
To the north of the SE arm of the river is another poisoned pool.
Here you come across a group of soldiers who are fighting Araneae and Spiders. If you help them out you get 1 point reputation.
The GIFTS will give you a quest to free a spider who has been taken prisoner by the Araneae in a nearby cave.
You need a password to reach Solberg.
There is a corpse here with a wand (Rod of Minor Call). If you take it you get attacked by 5 Spiders and 2 Araneae.
Two adventures have been trying for ages to get into this cave, without success. Will you have more luck?
There is only one patch of potion ingredients (Healing Herbs) in the NW of this area.
