Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the room with the circular nukage pit, raise the steps in the southwest corner using the switch behind the northern cage if you have not done so already, then go between the cages with bodies in them and open the wall to the south to retrieve a soul sphere. (sector 178)
  2. Just before the exit door, a wall opens up behind you with a few monsters behind a demon wall. Go through this demon wall to find a teleporter to a secret room. Inside is a backpack and some medikits guarded by an imp or two. (sector 328)
