The quest begins in the Dice Room.

Treguard: "It's one of the fundamental laws of the quest that most dungeon cells have six sides. So, by coincidence, does the common gaming dice."

They arrive in the Scorpion Room. Douglas gets caught by the sting and loses a level from his life force status.

Motley is sat in an empty pool, complaining that all the water has been drained.
