After rescuing Tveter during the quest Start the Generator, he'll appear here. Tveter will allow you to do a variety of things: forge new equipment (by combining three items into a new item), place traps (after completing the quest Enemy in Tunnels), and research upgrades. Tveter's research projects will give you improvements to the lair's generator, forge, and laboratory, and traps, but for some of the projects you'll need to find special quest items, which are listed below:
  • Electric Transformer Prototype (for a forge upgrade) - Found in an old crate in the Abandoned Research Station
  • Generator Plan (for a generator upgrade) - From Todor Schimko (#7)
  • Ink Essence (for a laboratory upgrade) - Received at the end of the quest The Beggar King
