Detailed Walkthrough

Captain Whitewater is in a tight spot. One of his scouts went to the Lannegar Mine a while back, and has yet to return. The men of his garrison can't afford to leave the town undefended, but Teram can't be left to die. Since you have experience handling Goblins, maybe you can help, for a reward of course.

Follow the old path to the mine, with special care when approaching the entrance as it is guarded by two goblins. Clear out the first area of goblins, grabbing the loot from two containers in different corners. Head into the hall to the west, and turn south when you can. You will see Teram locked in a cage. When you speak with him, he will tell you there is no key and must be a mechanism to release the door.

Back to the north, head into the small passage and at the end, go to the right. Fight your way through the goblins, being cautious of a bear trap where the path bends. The lever you are looking for in all the way to the north. Once its been activated, head back to Teram and free him.

The return to Lannegar and the Captain is uneventful, although it is convenient to have cleared up all the goblins in the way, to avoid the risk of Teram dying on the way. Captain Whitewater will reward you with a Potion of Light Healing, some gold, and experience. Your reputation in Lannegar and Varsilia will increase as well.
