Training areas[edit | edit source]

Two small locked training areas are near the start of the cloister. The Infiltration Training area is filled with disguises and chest to practice lockpicking. Interrogation Training contains a torture chamber.

Main chamber[edit | edit source]

Past the training rooms, a long corridor leads to the main chamber of the temple, where Mother Superior Viconia DeVir and the rest of the Sharrans are waiting for the party. Approaching Viconia will progress Investigate the House of Grief and Daughter of Darkness.

Dormitories[edit | edit source]

The dormitories are located to the north of the main chamber. Nocturne can be found there and will offer to trade with the party. Speaking with her will also complete A Familiar Face. Viconia's quarters are at the back of the dormitories. Some notes left by Viconia provide background information on her history with Shadowheart.

Armoury[edit | edit source]

To the south-east of the main chamber is an armoury, containing several magical weapons. Behind a wooden barricade, a short path leads to the Night Orchid Cave, containing a small lake surrounded by Night Orchids.

Threshold of Loss[edit | edit source]

Behind the main chamber, a large locked door called the Threshold of Loss blocks entry to the rest of the temple. It can either be lockpicked (DC 30), opened with a key, or opened by placing 1000 gold worth of items on the scale in front of the statue of Shar (this will consume the items!). If Shadowheart is a Dark Justiciar, the door opens on its own. Behind the door Shadowheart's parents are trapped; see the quest Daughter of Darkness for more information.

A Mirror of Loss can be found behind Shadowheart's parents; see its page for more information on interactions.
