Candlekeep Catacombs Level 1 (AR2615)

Did we miss anything in this location? Is there something we didn't discover? Let us know!


This part of the catacombs is where the dead sages and priests of Candlekeep are buried. There aren't a lot of monsters around but there are many traps, some which are difficult to detect. The traps are also non-trivial, meaning that they can do a lot of damage to your party if activated. If you are up to the challenge, however, you can find a lot of loot around. Otherwise you should just go to the next level as quickly as possible.

Note: Red circles indicate floor traps.

You'll only be able to exit this room into the catacombs (via Exit A).
