Catacomb Grid

The layout of the catacombs appears to be thus:

Once you enter, a single passageway surrounded by lava leads east, then south to a section with a store room. (NB = you can go up from the store-room, BUT NOT DOWN AGAIN. The stairs lead you out into the Dungeon Club in Fire City.)

Each section is a 3x3 space, most having paths leaving in all four directions leading to another 3x3 section of catacomb (C). All is surrounded by lava. On the northern edge, only the store room section has a north exit (back the way you came in), and on the southern edge, one section connects south to a path leading down to The Pool of the Mountain King (P). It looks like this:

The east/west edges wrap around, so if you keep going east (or west), you end up back where you started. I died before I found the altar!

Pool of the Mountain King

This is a diamond-shaped area of water, with an entrance at the top and an exit along the southwest edge. To the southeast can be found a Great Serpent with four heads which constantly regrow. Killing all four heads will allow you to pick up a map of the area, but doing so also teleports you out to the Shrine of Fire.

Please note that you can board boats in the Pool of the Mountain King (if not move about in them). This means that if you were to board a caravel... -- X-Himy 17:51, 7 December 2006 (GMT)

Moving into and out of the "Great Serpent" square costs 11AP even with Winged Boots.

Can be reduced to 10 if you use a walking stick Pri3st 02:06, 29 August 2008 (BST)
