High Keep

From Project 1999 Wiki
(Redirected from Highpass Keep)
Jump to: navigation, search

High Keep is the seat of a former empire that used to spread its power over central Antonica in years past. Now, their reign has diminished under constant attacks by the orcs and gnolls, and is restricted to High Pass Hold now. However, the inhabitants of High Keep thrive on trade, both legal and illegal, passing through the center of the continent, as High Pass Hold is one of the few "safe" regions to pass through.

Dangers

There are three specific dangers in High Keep. The first are the pickclaw goblins, who exist in the basement of the Keep, apparently unbeknownst to the guards walking above their heads. These spawn in a series of rooms, and become more dangerous the lower down in the basement one goes. They are uniformly very heavily camped.

The other two are in the basement as well. There are prisoners that appear to be safely tucked away inside of their prison cells. These prisoners are highly aggressive and will come out of their cell in order to attack you, regardless of how beneath you they are in level. If you get more than one or two on you, they can be more than a nuisance, and the guards will not attack them. Also, nearby is a Princess Lenia, not to be confused with the Princess Lenya that is part of a quest. This particular princess is a necromancer and around 20th level, so be careful around her (although she is not aggressive).

Benefits

This is a small, tight zone to hunt in. You can make your wealth downstairs with the goblins and walk a very short distance and sell or put it into the bank, you can be bound right here, etc. It's a one-stop hunting place. Probably for this reason, the poor Pickclaw Goblins have an estimated lifespan far less than a mayfly, and the area has actually developed lists for getting to attack specific pickclaws. Hmm, now I'm not so sure this is a benefit...

The area also provides a good place for adventurers in the center of the continent in general. You can be bound either in High Keep or in Highpass Hold, and with the nearby merchants and bank, this area acts as much as a town as either Qeynos or Freeport do, although I believe it is underutilized.

Traveling To and From

High Keep's entrance is located in the middle of Highpass Hold, on it's eastern edge. From there the Keep can be reached through either Eastern Plains of Karana (through a long gorge) or from Kithicor Forest.
