How does one access Sublevel 6B????

Post by Cogitator » Wed Dec 11, 2013 11:09 pm

I just bought Castle Whiterock a week ago and am already finding a few problems with navigation.

I can't find any actual place on the maps where you can access Sublevel 6B the Halls of Forgotten Lore. And there is no reference in the writing as to where to access it. The closest I can find is in Area 1-15 Hidden Chamber. However, this cannot be where the door is to 6B because it says on page 146 of the Blue Book at area 6B-1

"The winding passage ends in a small natural
chamber, perhaps 10 feet in diameter. Situated
in the eastern wall is a massive stone door
about 12 feet high and almost 10 feet wide."

There is no "winding passage" in the tiny Hidden Chamber of Area 1-15. So where is the access point from the rest of the dungeon to the 6B-1 Door Guardian??? I need help!

This thread is the one for you:

Castle Whiterock had a lot of moving parts, and this one slipped through. This link should fix that for you.
Hope you are enjoying the rest of the adventure!

You would think that the monk who initiated the building of an intricate library would have at least put a more direct route than through a passageway of ants. A secret tunnel perhaps but not one where he would have to travel through 5 other levels to get to. :roll:

Great minds...

The library was built waaaay before the ants moved in. Once upon a time, there probably was a more direct route, but centuries of orcs, giants, crashing flying castles, troglodytes, duergar, earthquakes, dragons, and the odd adventurer have changed things around.

It's like in the Clockwork Academy level...there used to be another way to access the laundry than through the dumbwaiter, but, well, things got smashed.

If you come across any other questions, let us know!

One does not simply walk into Sublevel 6B.
