Catacomb Level 2
Back to Eye of the Beholder 2
Catacomb Level 2
The second level of the Catcomb is filled with Skeletal Warriors. Often they’ll be accompanied by 8th level Temple Clerics. The Skeletal Warriors are fairly resistant to spells. Use Turn Undead on them to cause them to run away and try to pick them off one at a time.
The second Horn can be found on this level, as well as Calandra, a decent fighter who will join your party when you rescue her, and Shorn Diergar, a dwarf cleric, who has a chance to offer to join your party.
