Tsoran's map

This category lists all creatures found in the Darkstone Castle hunting area. The Darkstone Castle hunting area is nearest to the town of Wehnimer's Landing. It is found on the Tsoran map WL-darkstone.

Darkstone Castle was built by a sorcerer named Estrion near the town of Wehnimer's Landing. The results of the dark experiments conducted there still reside in the castle in the form of huge mein golems, stone gargoyles, stone sentinels, and the like. Estrion was killed while attempting to destroy the world, but it is believed that his ghost still inhabits the castle. Estrion's partner, Siarl, is believed to still be alive.

Dark Caverns

Sometimes called the dungeons, these caverns are located underneath Darkstone Castle; however, entering them is a puzzle. The more powerful creatures, like the massive troll kings and the Sheruvian harbingers reside in the caverns. The machine that Estrion was building in order to destroy the world is located on the third level. It now sits broken along with the bodies of numerous sacrifices.

Random Dispel Events

When inside the castle walls, adventurers may experience an occasional random dispel. Note the 'energy surrounding <you/him/her> is weakening' clause which immediately precedes the dispel event (see messaging below). Arcane Decoy (1701), contained in dull gold coins, does not afford protection from this event.

For an instant, the whole world seems blanketed in darkness as the clouds thicken and swirl outward, like some malignant tumor eating away at the light.

Faint tracings of static electricity begin to crawl up and down Luicindas's body, as if the energy surrounding her is weakening.

The brilliant luminescence fades from around Luicindas.
Suddenly there is a faint tingling sensation that seems to course through your body, you feel as if the energy surrounding you is weakening slightly.

Your sense of faith and conviction wanes.  You are less sure of yourself.


In some areas, there are various types of circles, which are environmental hazards.

[Darkstone, Dungeon]
A reinforced, iron door appears to have been ripped from its hinges by a remarkable force. It hangs by fragile, twisted bits of metal from its frame, revealing the utter darkness within the cell beyond. You also see a banshee and an intense shimmering circle.
Obvious exits: north, south

An intense shimmering circle explodes in a shower of shimmering sparks.
You are hit by the explosion.
   ... 30 points of damage!
   Electric blast goes right to the heart! You'll miss that steady beat.
(All spells fall)
A barely perceptible pulse radiates from your imflass plate, harnessing your connection to the Paladin to alert your brothers and sisters of the Order of your need.
It seems you have died, my friend. Although you cannot do anything, you are keenly aware of what is going on around you...
You mentally give a sigh of relief as you remember that the Goddess Lorminstra owes you a favor.
...departing in 16 mins...
