Go in the main door, and up the stairs, through the archway, and turn north and then keep heading east. Clear out the pen of minotaurs to the north and procede. The large circular chambers to the east of here is where you appear after drinking from the fountain in Kriegspire village.
When all four chambers have been cleared out, go to the passage between the two easternmost rooms and head further east, through the door, and then turn south, going through the first door on the left. The room will quickly fill with minotaurs. Finish them off and collect (and use) all of the magic horseshoes.
Return to the hallway and continue around south then west. You’ll arrive on a ledge that goes along the edge of the four rooms. In the very center of the the rooms, there is a small alcove and a button on the column. Push that button. This opens the barred door back in the hallway.
Drop back down to the hallway, head west back past the first minotaur pen, and head up the stairs. Ignore the door that you can’t open on the west wall, and charge the east wall. It opens when you run into it; quickly and run to and through it — there are minotaur mages that can see and attack you while you are standing by the door. The corridor loops back to those pens immediately after the door, so you can kill the minotaurs at your leisure. Then, follow the passage eastwards.
In the chest to the south is the Jewelled Egg. This is the item that you need to find to compelete quest 40. The north alcove leads to an alcove high above the “arena” rooms where you can observe everything that goes on.
Return to the hallway leading to the arena rooms. The door to the south blocked with bars will now open if you approach it. Go through there, turning right, and then right again and head up the stairs. Search the empty cages to find Roland’s Journal.
Head down the stairs and open the door. Inside you’ll find a Minotaur King. But not just any King; its “Lurch” himself. Past the door, at the corner, you will see two openings into a room below. [The corridor you’re in merely continues back to the corridor near the entrance.] Jump through one of the openings and head to the corner of the room. In an alcove is hovering Memory Crystal Epsilon. This is the crystal you need to complete quest 44. [Note: the quest does say that you’re supposed to find Crystal Epsilon inCastle Alamos and that you’re supposed to find Crystal Beta here, but you go with the flow! This may be fixed in a patch of the game to be released later.] If you step on the black square, you’ll be returned to the corridor.
From the southwest arena room, head through the door to the west and go down that corridor. Take the stairs on the right. They wind around to an observation room for the southwest arena room. If you fall into the center of the column area, there are teleportation squares there that teleport you to the entrance of the Castle.
Return to the hallway and take the door to the east now. It leads back to an opening between the two eastern arena rooms. Return back to the hallway and take the stairs to the south. When you have killed all of the Drakes in this room, cross the room and loot the chest. The stairs merely wind around to another observation alcove.
Head towards the arena area again and turn north. When you get to the double-door gate, open it. On the wall ahead of you is the “Curator of Kriegspire”. He offers the chance to heal your entire party for 10000gp. If you take his offer, be warned that it will seriously hurt your reputation.
Continuing, you will find yourself in a large room filled with many Drakes. After you cross the chasm in this room; or when you fall into it, the chasm will fill with various abominations created by Agar. After you have defeated all of them, collect the large amount of treasure on the far side of the room. At the far side of the room is the “Guardian of Kriegspire” who says he will reveal the answer for 50,000gp. All this does is teleport you to the hidden button that unlocks the gratings. I wouldn’t waste your money.
When you are done, you can jump into the pit and take the corridor up, which leads back to the door that you couldn’t open from the outside.
