Abandoned Temple of Baa
Received from: Andover Potbello (NS Inn), Buford (NS house), Hejaz (NS house), Violet (NS house)
Location: W of New Sorpigal (close by)
Special Problems: You will spend most of your time poisoned and diseased; chests have heavy warding spells; huge
Difficulty: easy to medium
Description: 1) Your goal (if you talked to all four people) is to find the candelabra, kill the spider queen (and take her heart), collect the cobra eggs and save the girl. This dungeon is nasty for beginners because all critters fight with disease or poison attacks and the cobras strike particularly hard. Watch out in particular for the red queen cobra. 2) You can choose to do just one quest at a time, but there really is no point in doing so. 3) In the spider heart quest, as in many others, you will not see a final fantasy style Boss that you must fight to get the heart. The queen is just a big spider surrounded by other big spiders, so be sure you have her heart when you leave the dungeon. 4) Finally, if you bring the candelabra back to Potbello, you will lose reputation points; part of the money you made on the quest, however, if donated to the temple, will bring your rep back up with considerable gold left over. It is worth it.
