Kuldahar, you have to find
he's located near the bridge with the rocks in front
of the building. Arundel will tell you that
many people have gone missing from the town, and that
the Towns (Tree's) energy is becoming weak, along with
very odd weather changes taking place, becoming
cold in the place that has always been of warmth
(Because of the Tree).
Most of the missing Villagers are in the area
Eye. (See Chapter 2)
One Villager, Milek, will tell you that he and his
brother had gone out in search of the villagers, but
were attacked by one of the largest Yeti they had ever
seen, he ran, but his brother was killed. He asks you to get

Yeti. You will find this mean sucker Chieftang dude in
the Vale of Shadows, along with many other Yeti, near
the statue, kill him and retrieve Milek's Gem.
Return to Kuldahar and talk to Milek (at Potters place) for a reward
of 500GP and Exp.
The Innkeeper in the Village has a Secret, go talk to
the Barmaid at the Tavern first, she will tell you
about the Halfling, and how oddly he came to inherit
the Inn so quickly.. Go to the Inn and go directly
upstairs, inside a
locked box (Need a good thief here) you will find a ring, take the ring to the
Halfling Innkeeper and question him about it, don't
kill him, follow the correct questioning and you'll receive

The Dead Capitol of the Realms) <g>
The Vale has 6 caves, or "Crypts' to explore, and
find keys. View the Map Provided to understand how to
hit the caves in the correct manner. Its like - Go to
cave/crypt 1, get key, to unlock cave/crypt 2, and so
on. You will need the keys later on as well.
Crypts 1-4 are mainly key finding locations, and some
great experience givers <g>. Now that Crypts 1-4
are cleaned out, head to the 'final' Crypt, number 5!
This is a very tough area, at least more than
the other battles you've encounters so far, so be
ready, and save often.
The second you enter Crypt 5, you're greeted by evil
bastards left and right, slay them all... (And enjoy
Hit the next door, but he healed, and ready, because
this is a tough fight,

battle is won.
If the lever doesn't budge, you'll need to check out
the rest of the area.. Once Pulled, enter the Door it
opened (Shown on the map in the link above as well).
Another Battle, just as fierce.. save before this one

will talk to you... he wants you to 'help' him with
something.... (And agree to help him)

area, he has been cursed to live in this room forever,
and the Auril priestess wants to destroy the area AND

weather and stuff..
will find the the priestess in Crypt 6, along with a
few Yeti, and Shadow dudes, Kill her, take here stuff
(She has a Morning Star +1) and you'll get 700Exp for
it. (also return to Kuldahar later, and talk to the Tavern
Bartender or Barkeep and ask for her other Equipment
that she left behind, this will give you some nice
items, and clues). Once you leave Crypt 6, a shadow
will thank you for releasing them from her hold on
them. Return to Crypt 5, tell Kresslach the deed is
done, and he'll give you some great information
here, and his Nice sword and whatever else in his
Treasure chest (Gems, etc..)

will send you to the Temple of the forgotten God , in search
