Borghild is an ancient burial site. Twenty years ago, the Duke of Serbule led an adventuring team into it, but never returned.
— Loading Screen
Borghild, once known as the Deathrap Dungeon is accessed through the giant gate in the northeast past of Serbule. Look for a crack on the left side of the door to get in.
Fifteen centuries ago, Borghild was a Dwarven city-fortress. After the Dwarves abandoned it, Humans, Orcs, Hags, more Dwarves, and beasts took up residence inside for periods of time. Now... it's filled with ghosts. Around 500 years ago, the Dwarves controlled Borghild again. Twenty years ago, the Duke of Serbule adventured into the massive tomb, and died there.
Borghild offers adventurers a challenge, as the years of different cultures inhabiting the dungeon has led to a variety of inhabitants. Ancient dwarven golems guard some areas, while the crypts have become filled with myriad undead. The slow-moving Face of Death is a common sight, capable of instantly killing any enemy on contact. Unprepared explorers will find Greedy Ghosts impossible to defeat without a stun, and a nest of highly poisonous Injector Bugs are also nested within.
While looting the chests inside the dungeon, be forewarned that six of the seven chests are booby-trapped. When opened, multiple creatures will spawn, and a freezing root is cast on whoever opened the chest. Be ready to take out the enemies, possibly with ranged attacks if a Face of Death appears.
Points of Interest
The central hall of Borghild is a recessed courtyard, walls lined with lootable old caskets. Undead wander the halls, and can easily group up on unsuspecting adventurers in this area.
In the central court are old caskets which can be looted for Bone Meal, and various Skulls.
Across the main hall from the entrance is a locked door, which states:
Try as you might, you cannot open the door, because the lower ﬂoor hasn't been Implemented yet.
Exploring the rooms to the right of the main hall reveals a staircase leading to an older, possibly dwarven crypt. A nest of Injector Bugs and their queen Venenae may be found here. Hidden on a bookshelf of her room's southern wall, recipes for Blacksmithing can be found.
Down a side hallway of this part of the crypt, a mysterious symbol can be found on the floor.
Adventurers who travel up a set of stairs left of the entrance hall will find themselves in a maze of mostly locked jail cells, home now to yet more ghosts and other undead.
Past the jail, the strongest evidence of prior dwarven occupation can be found, a cavernous storage room with multiple active golem within. The Duke of Serbule met an untimely end in this room, plunging the region into disarray.
There are no friendly NPCs in Borghild.
