Act 1: Stolen Land

G. Technic League Encampment

From Thorn Ford: 1) W, 2) NW, 3) W, 4) SW.

Hunting in this area during rest: Lore (Nature) DC 16.

You can either go North or West from the starting point of the map. I recommend heading North for a closer approach to the prisoners when combat begins.

  1. Archer (Warrior 3) and Swordsman (Fighter 3).
    • If you sneak up on the Archer when he’s at the right-most part of his patrol, just after he’s turned around, you can fight him without triggering the sleeping Swordsman. If one of your companions was captured, you can free her/him at this time.
  2. Regongar and Octavia. They are two additional prisoners of the Technic League. Freeing them will trigger the enemies at Location C, so it’s better to free them after you start combat.
  3. Kalannah (Wizard 3), Technic League Mage x2 (Wizard 3), Technic League Archer (Warrior 3), Technic League Swordsman (Fighter 3). A number of these enemies may be sleeping if it’s nighttime. If you attack during the day, a portion of these enemies may wander off to the Southwest after a short discussion, if you wait, causing them to miss the 1st round of combat.
    • The Mages will cast Cause Fear (1) on melee characters. Kalennah will cast Summon Monster II (Wolf) and Summon Monster I (Dog). These summoned monsters appear to be bugged and will attack the other Technic League enemies. Don’t focus on them since they aren’t worth exp and will only last 3 rounds before disappearing. Control spells like Grease (1) can slow down the larger group of enemies and allow you to handle them a few at a time. I would recommend starting combat by casting a control spell such as Grease (1) on the enemies before freeing Regongar and Octavia, who will join you against the Technic League enemies. This is an easier battle than the Technic League ambush because you’ll have the opportunity to prepare and get the first strike.
    • The Mages each have a Masterwork Estoc and a level 1 Scroll. The Archers have Masterwork Longbows and one carries Chocolate. If you kill Kalannah, you can loot her body for: a Headband of Vast Intelligence +2, a Wand of Expeditious Retreat (15 charges), a Light Crossbow, and a level 1 Scroll. This is good gear for this stage of the game, but nothing to really write home about.
    • After the battle, Kalennah will ask for mercy. For the "best" ending for Regongar and Octavia, you should spare her (NG moral choice). Octavia and Regongar will offer to join your party, and you should accept! They will start off at full health.
      • Since you can only have 6 characters with you at a time, you will have to send some of the NPCs back to Oleg’s. Regongar is a melee fighter who can become a decent tank/off-tank as he levels. Octavia does ranged DPS and can sneak attack flanked enemies with her cantrips: Acid Splash, Jolt, and Ray of Frost. Octavia can learn spells from scrolls, so you may want to teach her spells from any arcane scrolls in your inventory now.
      • I would recommend keeping Valerie around if she is your main tank and Linzi to unlock chests. Although Octavia has a higher bonus to her Trickery skill, Octavia is a significantly weaker character than Linzi until you can give her the Precise Shot feat at level 3. Linzi also likely lacks that feat, but Linzi contributes a lot to the party at level 2 with her bard songs, heal spells, and the Daze (0) cantrip, even if she can’t hit crap.
      • I would recommend picking the remaining party members from Amiri, Regongar, Jaethal, and/or Harrim. Amiri will likely have the highest Lore: Nature, which is useful for hunting. Regongar has the highest strength and is good for carrying gear and is also a useful off-tank when he uses the Shield (1) spell. Jaethal can heal and is immune to poison and fatigue. Harrim will be the best healer of the party, but he's a significantly weaker melee attacker than the others.
  1. Locked Chest (Trickery DC 10): Scroll of Bane, 13 gold, Potion of Mage Armor, Potion of Reduce Person.
  2. Silver Inkwell, Artificial Flower, Shining Shell, 11 gold, Rice x5, Potatoes.
  3. Flour x4, Milk x3, Butter x2, Eggs x2, Onions.
  4. Chainshirt +1, Book: “Shadows of Absalom”.
Leaving the Area

This is a good time to return to Oleg’s if you haven’t already. I recommend stopping by the Boggard Hunting Grounds on the way.
