Danger Level: 15

A wee dungeon on the outskirts of Canalbrine, the Lair of the Usurper is intended for low-level parties to cut their teeth on optional content. It's not long, the enemies aren't that diffiuclt, and it's relatively easy to find. Come here during your party's formative days and you'll find some good stuff inside to get you started.

The Lair of the Usurper is located along the Canalbrine Bridge. Travel along the bridge to its west side, then make your way down to the base of the bridge. You'll find a dock where you can debark in a canoe. Ride your canoe east until you find a gap in the bridge's supports. Row north through the gap, then look for a half-completed tower on a little island by itself on the other side of the bridge. There's a ladder inside the tower that will take you down into the dungeon.

A short walk south of the entrance ladder you'll find a save point. There's a treasure chest on a ledge above this save point that you can't reach from here. Head east of the save point and you'll find a path on your right that will lead you up to the chest, which contains a Bottle of Sleeping Dust.

Follow the torches south. Down the second set of stairs from the save point you'll be standing just north of a torch. If you look on your left you can find a hidden path leading west. At the end of the path you'll find a chest containing a Thunder Mace. Snag it and head back to the main path, headed southeast.

The path splits at the next torch, though it's easy not to notice the westbound path. The stairs in the west will bring you down to a chest containing an Olive of Life (M). Return to the crossroads and head east. You'll hit a clearing, and you'll see a dock by some water to the northeast. Ignore it a moment and go down the path to the southeast. You'll find a kingly three chests here, containing a Grail of Life, 6,500 leaves, and a Weathered Treasure Shield.

Almost done. Head to the dock and sail northwest. You'll find one final chest past the second dock. It contains an Empowering Lychee (L). That's that! You've plundered the place. Head back outside and continue your journey.
