Locations[edit | edit source]

Related areas[edit | edit source]

Nursery[edit | edit source]

This area is a mind flayer nursery, and the initial area the player will wake in. In the centre of the room is a pool filled with larvae that can be Investigated, and will explode and damage the player after touching it.

Surgery room[edit | edit source]

Adjacent to the nursery, this room contains a small elevator which can be taken to find a dying elf whose brain can be removed to free Us.

Moving out of the brain room will trigger a scene with Lae'zel (or Losiir when playing as Lae'zel), who will join the player while on the Nautiloid.

Ceremorphosis chambers[edit | edit source]

On the northern side of the Nautiloid are two adjoining rooms. In the first is a pod with Shadowheart, which can be opened with a slate found on a dead body in the eastern end of the next room.

Helm[edit | edit source]

After leaving the ceremorphosis chambers, The party will enter the helm of the ship, where a mind flayer and Cambion, Zhalk, are fighting. Once the party enters this room a countdown of 15 turns begins to reach the transponder on the other side of the room.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • The nursery in the first room can be Investigated to discover it is about to break.
  • In the room adjoining the nursery, the player can meet Us.
  • In the room with Shadowhearts pod is a control panel with labels that can be read with an Arcana check.
    • The left label reads "Unleash," the middle one "Aggression," and the right one "Annihilate".
  • In the room adjoining Shadowheart's is a pod containing an unresponsive woman. Using the button on the console behind her will cause her to undergo ceremorphosis.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When playing as a custom character, if Lae'zel is killed before reaching the helm, instead of being captured in a trap and found by two tieflings, she will be dead on the beach after the crash, and can be revived. At time of writing it is uncertain if this applies to Shadowheart. This can be a great way to get a head start for honour mode.
