In the Entrance Room (A) you must place the writ in the
drawer to load the dungeon (no wall lever this time). Pastolio will
give you the writ back as an "unidentified scroll." The far
door opens and leads to the Main Elevator (B).
The elevator deposits you on the first mine level. Head south and take
the Second Elevator (C) down.
At the "T" go left (west) then left (south) again. Enter the
Throne Room (D) and talk to King Freyedies. He’ll
offer to make you Dragon Armor if you’ll find some ore. Agree and
he’ll activate the trolley system for you. From the throne room head
Go through the Deep Room (E) and take the north passage
to the Trolley Room (F). Click on the left (west)
trolley to board it then click on the lever. At the end of the line
click on the trolley to get off, follow the tunnel north and take the Third
Elevator (G) down.
at the Third Elevator – Lower Level (H). Go south,
turn right (west) and take the Fourth Elevator (I) down.
Go right (south), then right (south) again and take the Fifth
Elevator (J) down to the next mine level.
You’re at Fifth Elevator – Lower Level (K). Go north
and at the 3-way intersection go left (northwest). Enter the Lever
Room (L) to the left (west) and get the lever
(needed for the second trolley). If you already have a pickaxe (from
an insane miner) you can now return to the trolley room (F) (go
to #9). Otherwise, continue with #7.
From the lever room go left (north), bypass the first elevator, head
left (north), then immediately right (southeast). At the next
intersection go right (south) then left (west) to the Sixth
Elevator (M). Take it down to the next level.
This is the lowest level; you are at the Sixth Elevator – Lower
Level (N). Go right (north) and swing west; take the Seventh
Elevator (O) down. Go south, then right (west) at the
"T" and take the Eighth Elevator (P) up. Go
south, then right at the "T" (south) again to the Pickaxe
Room (Q). Get the pickaxe and head all of the way
back up to the Trolley Room (F).
At the Trolley Room (F) use the lever on the broken eastern
trolley. Hop on board and click the lever. Get off and follow the
tunnel to the lava area. The easiest way to proceed is stop on the Broken
Track Bridge (R), turn around, and walk up the right
support truss to the higher level (you can also climb all of the way
around the lava lakes). Follow the tunnel to the stepping stones,
fight the lava pups, cross the lava, fight the hound, and continue to
the Lava Ore Lake (S). Use the pickaxe on the ore body
on the wall to get the dragon ore. Head back to the
throne room (D).
Give the ore to Freyedies and leave the throne room. Go out to the
"T" and loiter for a couple of minutes, then return to
Freyedies – he’ll have your Dragon armor
done. This completes the Stout Mine requirements – you can now
leave. Optionally, you can plunder the king’s vaults in two ways –
(1) kill Freyedies (and fight all of his guards), get his key and
access the vaults, or (2) track down Raskalion for entry into one of
the king’s vaults (#11).
The route to Raskalion is a long one. From the throne room go back to
the Trolley Room (F), take the west trolley and go down the
elevator. You are at the Third Elevator – Lower Level (H). Go
south and at the "T" go left (east), left (north) at the
next "T", right (east) at the next "T" and finally
left (west) into the Round Room (T). Follow the north
exit to the First Switch Lift (U). Take it up and click
the lever (to change the first eastern trolley track from east side to
west side). Go back to the trolley room.
Take the east trolley to the new area. Get off, take the tunnel south
and east; at the "T" go north and take the Ninth Elevator
(V) up. Follow the passage to the Tenth Elevator (W)
and go down. Go to the Healing Lake (X) and
"re-vitalize." Go back to the Tenth Elevator, go up ,and
then take the southern passage to the Eleventh Elevator (Y).
Take it down and follow the tunnel to the Second Switch Lift (Z).
Throw the switch (to change the second eastern trolley track from east
side to west side) and head back to the Trolley Room (F). Go
back to the First Switch Lift (U) and throw the switch again.
Go back to the trolley room.
Take the east trolley. Get off and go to Raskalion’s Room (AA).
Use his lift to plunder the northwest vault. That’s it for the Stout
Mines – head to the Entrance Room (A) and use the writ to
exit the Mines.
