Walkthrough forMight and Magic: Book one - Secret of the Inner Sanctum

This walkthru is designed to assist you in finding the Inner Sanctum in Varn. There is much to explore and find in Varn and many puzzles to figure out. It should be noted that you will need at least 54 sheets of graph paper to map all the game. I used a composition book that had quadrille (graph) sheets, and it was very helpful. Copies of the mapping sheet they give you in the book are also very good.


In general, follow the guidelines in the documentation. Make sure, though, that all your characters have good END and that your wizard has SPEED of at least 15. If you can be patient enough, all characters should have also have ACCURACY over 11. Having a Cleric with low SPEED can be helpful, since he/she will go last in melee and be able to cure folks who have been injured during the round. There is an advantage in having all female characters, but if you don't care for that, it's not mandatory. There also can be an advantage in having characters all the same alignment. You should have a character in each character class. Keep in mind that all of your characters can be in melee, so you don't want to have many (like wizards) that are vulnerable.


You begin the game in the Inn of Sorpigal. A map of Sorpigal is provided in the documentation, but this is by no means complete. Explore there thoroughly and keep good notes. Do not go outside of Sorpigal until you are at least 3rd level; there's lots to explore, and the monsters will be at least a match for you. Try to move through all walls, since there are hidden doors that can only be discovered this way. Make sure you find the Leprechaun, he's your easy ticket to the other four cities of Varn. He's behind a hidden door, close to the exit to the outside at x11,y3. Be aware that there is no Leprechaun in any other city, so you'll have to walk back. Don't go to City #4 (Dusk) until you've gotten the FLY Spell. Also behind a hidden door is the statue of a frog (x14,y14). He will tell you in areas like him (black and white checked) you will find what you need to help Og. The Og quest is not vital to the completion of the game, but like many other quests, it adds depth (and points to your final score).

The monsters will give about 40-80 experience points per battle, and since you need approximately 2000 to go up a level, it will be slow going. Make sure you cast your Leather Skin Spell after resting and before adventuring. In fact, throughout the game, always cast any Protection spell available to you. Avoid Sprites -- they cast curses which make it very difficult to hit them or any other monster with them. When trying to open chests, don't bother with the Detect Magic spell, it's not necessary. Opening chests can severely damage or kill members in your party. If you have anyone in the party who is unconscious, REST before opening a chest.

When buying food, make sure everyone has at least 5 gold. Food prices vary from city to city, but Sorpigal is the least expensive place to buy food in Varn. If you make donations to the temple, you will eventually be awarded with all of the Protection spells cast at their highest possible level. They will go away when you rest, but they can still be very helpful. Temple donation prices also vary from town to town. The bars are a good source of information, make sure you have a drink from time to time.

There are caverns below Sorpigal and if your characters are 2nd/3rd level, they should be able to explore them safely. Be sure to get the vellum scroll from the wizard; he will tell you to deliver it to a wizard in Erliquin.


I have designed this as a reference work, since you can be doing many things at any given time. A "walkthru" just isn't possible with this game. First will be a list of the areas and what can be found in them, and then will be a list of significant places and items and where they can be found. Assume that any location listed is accessible by the ETHERIALIZE or TELEPORT spells unless noted. There are many places (not mentioned in this walkthru) where magic doesn't work. Generally speaking, it won't be over a wide area, but be very careful of using a transportation spell to get to a place where magic doesn't work, and then resting, since you will not be able to cast the spell to get back.


Sorpigal is Town #1.

Portsmith (Town #2; B3 x3,y3): This city is tough on male characters, and if you didn't follow my advice, and have some in your party, you might consider exploring the cave below Portsmith for the fountain that reverses the sex of your characters. Zam is in Portsmith, and so is the Succubus. Zam is hidden behind a door at x11,y0. The succubus is hidden behind a door at x10,y4. Do not enter that door unless your characters are at least 15th level, since there is no way out, and the Succubus and her accompanying devils are very tough. There are stairs down to a cave at x0,y8.

Algary (Town #3; D4 x7,y7): Behind the Inn in Algary is the Swaze Pit. The Swaze Pit is nothing but unending encounters, so it is a good place to take your characters for experience points. There are also a couple of Portals that take you to various dungeons. Go through them if you'd like, but they aren't the only way to get to the dungeons.

Dusk (Town #4; E1 x9,y11): Telengar (the person the wizard in Erliquin told you to deliver the scroll to) is at x8,y0. The Forbidden Crypt contains a bunch of pretty nasty monsters, but at the end of it, you'll find an undead amulet, useful for casting Turn Undead. Food is very expensive here (200gp for 40 food), so make sure you have a lot of food before you come. Donations to the temple, on the other hand, are quite cheap (25gp) so this is a good place to get all those helpful spells. There are stairs leading down to a dungeon at x14,y0.

Erliquin (Town #5; B1 x13,y1): The wizard Agar is hidden behind the Inn at x2,y5. The Town Treasure is at x15,y6. If you steal it, you will be accosted by guards. The guards are very very tough; so unless you are level 20+, don't try to fight them. If you give in, you will get a jail sentence that will age your characters that many years. Really, the treasure isn't worth it.


A1: The passage to Castle Doom is at x7,y15. You'll need the gold key to finish up Castle Doom. There is a Pool of Health at x12,y1 which grants +2 to END. In the forests around x5,y2, you can fight the Dark Rider. He is the one who can help you improve the payoff on the Wheel of Luck.

A2: The Pirate's Secret Cove is at x2,y4 and at x2,y5 (there are two of them). The Dragon's Tooth is at x11,y3. The King's Pass is at x0,y15 (can't FLY to that area).

A3: x3,y6 the Wheel of Luck. There are 4 monsters shown on the map: the Sea Serpent, the Scorpion, the Dark Rider, and the Dragon. The more monsters you kill, the better you will do when spinning the wheel. They are in the areas shown on the map, but precise locations aren't possible, since they can move.

A4: bridge at x4,y6. At that bridge, Gypsies' (found in C2) colors will be asked for. If you answer correctly (at least 3 members of party), walk across to x4,y2 and get the coral key. An incorrect answer will eradicate a character, so be careful. You cannot teleport and get the key.

B1: Silver Key at x4,y7. You must enter the passage to the key from x0,y6. Erliquin is at x13,y1. Blackridge Castle South is at x11,y2. Blackridge Castle North is at x14,y10. The Ancient Ruins are at x12,y5. To get to the Ancient Ruins you must use the Slide from inside Blackridge South Castle or find the teleport that goes from one side of Erliquin's dungeon to the other. There is a backdoor to Erliquin at x14,y1, accessible from one of the Algary portals.

B2: There is the riddle of the Ice Princess at x4,y4. The answer to the riddle is LOVE. Search after giving the answer, and you will get a key. Answer the riddle twice, and you will get a second key. The first should be bronze and the second diamond. The Warrior's Stronghold (Raven's Lair) is at x9,y9. A cave is at x8,y4. 

B3: Portsmith is at x3,y3. Enchanted Forest Stronghold (also called the Minotaur's Stronghold) is at x14,y2. It is difficult to get there, so keep experimenting. Wolf Castle is at x9,y13. Wizard Ranalou's cave is at x0,y7. Blyth's Peak is at B3 x9,y6.

B4: Trivia Island is at the southern part of the map. Normally you must pay 500 gold, but there is a place at x15,y15 where you can pull the lever and then no payment is required. The questions and answers: Who is the voluptuous one? Laura Who's lost sight? Og Where's the very latest? Erliquin Who be ye? I be me You'll get 50 gems for answering each question correctly.

C1: If you have gotten the clues from Zom and Zam, at x15,y15 search, and you'll find a ruby whistle, necessary to enter the Enchanted Forest Stronghold. You must stay alive between talking to Zom and Zam and searching for the key; otherwise you, the player, will have the clues, but your characters won't. There are six fountains from x10,y14 through x5,y14. The first, fourth, fifth, and sixth fountains are poison -- don't drink from them. The second fountain will give your spell casters all the appropriate spells (including level 7) for their class. The third fountain will add to the MIGHT of all the characters that drink. If your party is less than level 12 or so, these fountains will be necessary to battle the ambushes at the Merchant's Wagons. The effects of the fountains wear off after resting. One of the Merchant's Wagon's will contain a merchant's pass, necessary to completely explore the castles. The Merchant's Wagons are in the forested area between x6,y5, x9,y5, x9,y9 and x6,y9. You may have to conquer several ambushes before finally finding the pass; however, the actual pass is located at x3,y8.

C2: Sorpigal is at x10,y10. There is a toothless Gypsy seer at x9,y11. Make sure each character talks to her, and write down what she tells you. It'll be necessary to finish the game. There is a cave at x15,y11. The only entrance to Raven's Lair (in B2) is at x0,y2 guarded by statues that will come to life. At x15,y8 there will be an avalanche that will block your return.

C3: Wyvern's Eye at x7,y7. The wyverns are tough for young characters, but they provide great experience when you are strong enough to take them on. Approach x8,y0 from the west. The clue given pertains to the Og problem. There is an old hermit at x2,y10. He will trade with you, but make sure your character in the first slot doesn't have anything valuable in his/her pack because the hermit will take it. You'll get a couple of items for pirates from him. The exiled Lord Kilburn is at x6,y14. He's past a few hidden doors. He will give you a map of the desert.

C4: Jolly Raven Shipwreck x8,y13. Portal at x13,y13 sends you to the bottom of City of Gold Dungeon (E4 4th level). Volcanic island: You need the coral key to enter cave at x7,y2.

D1: This is mostly desert. Make sure you have plenty of food or the food spell available before trying to walk across. Also, make sure you have the map of the desert (found in C3), since without it, you'll be lost. The tradesmen of the desert are found at x10,y13. The goods they give you not only are a quest, but will replenish your food supply. Scorpions may be found in the desert here.

D2: Pool of Personality (+2 or +4) at x10,y12. Three clerics heal curses, and conditions. Message at x9,y10.

D3: Man at x0,y2. See him before climbing all trees. There are 19 trees. If you climb all without leaving the area, you get a choice of gold, gems, or a magic item, The magic items can be wonderful. Cave at x7,y13.

D4: Og at x7,y1. You must have the two idols (the ruby idol is not one of them), otherwise he won't talk to you. The answer to his question is Queen to King's level 1. Algary is at x7,y7

E1: Dusk at x9,y11. Castle Dragadune ruins at x12,y12. Sands of Time (makes your characters younger) at x3,y3 and guarded by some prehistoric uglies. Statue of Judgement at x9,y12. You must have encountered the prisoners in the castles before the Statue of Judgement will give you experience points (more about this in the Castles section).

E2: Oasis at x3,y11. There is an alien at x3,y11. Different things will happen depending on what you choose; so be nice. At x3,y13 get intellect raised.

E3: x12,y6 a password is requested. To get the password, go to x7,y2 and listen to the harper. After getting the password, you can enter King Alamar's castle at x14,y7. A diamond door is located at x1,y4. Beyond it is the Astral Plane.

E4: caves at x10,y5, This is the Building of Gold. Dragon City Town Meeting at x8,y5. DO NOT interrupt the meeting unless you are level 25+. This is a VERY tough fight. There are a couple of interesting items at x2,y6 and x3,y6.


In every castle you will find a silver message. The interleaf to explain these messages can be found in Castle Doom. Also in every castle, you'll find a prisoner. The amount of experience points that you get at the Statue of Judgement will depend on your treatment of those prisoners and each character's alignment. Keep in mind that the type of prisoner and what you do to it will affect the experience points. For example, if a good character lets a demon go, that will be counted against him/her, even though letting a chained prisoner go might be considered a good deed. Also, the only one who gains from just leaving is a neutral character.


All castles except Dragadune contain Lords that will send you on quests. There are only a few quests that you must complete in order to finish the game, but all quests give experience points and are a good way to explore the world of Varn. If a quest is inconvenient or too difficult, cast Remove Quest and come back to it at a better time. In order to see the Lords, you must have a merchant's pass (in order to see Lord Alamar you must have a merchant's pass and a King's pass) found in C1. Make sure that any items that the Lords request are in the first character's back pack, otherwise the Lord won't acknowledge that you've finished the quest.

Blackridge North (B1 x14,y10): Prisoner at x12,y2. Gold message at x9,y5. Lord Inspectron is the Lord of this castle and the following are the quests he'll send you on and how to complete the quests: 

  1. Find Ancient Ruins in Quivering Forest: B1 x12,y5. Use the slide found in Blackridge South Castle or enter through the caverns of Erliquin.
  2. Visit Blythe's Peak and report: B3 x9,y6 and return.
  3. The people of the desert have much to trade. Bring me a sample of their goods: D1 x10,y13. Make sure when you trade, the first character has nothing of value in the first slot of his/her pack.
  4. Find the Shrine of Oskar in the caves below Dusk: In Dusk take the stairs at x14,y0. The Shrine is at x0,y15.
  5. Find the fabled fountain in Dragadune: Dragadune is at E1 x12,y12. The fountain exchanges gold for experience points and is located at x13,y15.
  6. Solve the Riddle of the Ruby: Warrior's Stronghold at B2 x9,y9. Difficult to get to. The riddle is at x7,y11 in the middle of the room. The answer is crystal, and giving the correct answer will get you a crystal key. 
  7. Defeat the Stronghold in the Enchanted Forest: The Stronghold is at B3 x14,y2. You will not be able to do this quest unless you have delivered the scroll to the wizards, talked to Zom and Zam, and gotten the Ruby whistle. Assuming you have the whistle, blow it the appropriate number of times and then head for the stairs located at x1,y12 or x14,y12. Go down, and you'll have to find the Minotaur, located at x8,y14. Trying to map your way to the Minotaur is a nightmare; so if you have the Etherealize spell, use it instead. Kill the Minotaur (as with the Succubus, below, a retreat will be enough to fulfill the quest) and then go to x3,y4. DO NOT desecrate the doggie; if you search after answering the question, you will get a gold key. If after having done all this, you don't get a gold key, you have a buggy copy and will have to repeat the visit to Zom and Zam, kill the Minotaur again and then visit the dog a second time. If that doesn't work, try using the original D disk that came with the game instead of a copy; otherwise, you'll have to write Activision for a new disk. You must get the gold key to finish the game.

Castle Blackridge South: Prisoner at x13,y2. Slide at x11,y11 (enter dark area at x3,y11). Silver message at x15,y7. Lord Hacker is the Lord of this castle and the following are the quests he'll send you on and how to complete the quests: 

  1. Bring garlic: found in Sorpigal Blacksmith store. 
  2. Bring wolfsbane: found in Algary. 
  3. Bring belladonna: found in Blacksmith's store in Dusk. 
  4. Bring head of Medusa: Caves in B2 located at x8,y4. The head is located at x15,y3. 
  5. Bring eye of Wyvern: C3 x7,y7. Defeat the Wyverns for the eye. 
  6. Dragon's Tooth: A2 x11,y3. Defeat the Dragons for the tooth. 
  7. Bring ring of Okrim: B1 x13y5 level 1 x12y12. Defeat Okrim to get the ring. 

If you ask Lord Hacker for an 8th quest, you will lose all in your backpacks and wind up on the Astral Plane. 

Wolf Castle: Prisoner at x12,y4. Silver message at x0,y1.

Lord Ironfist is the Lord of this castle and the following are the quests he'll send you on and how to complete the quests:

  2. Find Lord Kilburn: C3 x6,y14. 
  3. Find the secret of Portsmith: The succubus, Portsmith, x10,y4. You don't have to actually defeat her; you will still succeed in the quest if you successfully retreat. It is truly best to have no male members in the party in this quest. 
  4. Find the Pirate's secret cove: A2 x2,y4. 
  5. Find the Shipwreck of the Jolly Roger: C4 x8,y13. 
  6. Defeat the Pirate's Ghost Ship, Anarchist. B4 moves around the Western part of ocean. 
  7. Defeat stronghold in Raven's Wood: B2 x9,y9 second level x14,y1. Lord Archer. If you succumb to his demands,you've defeated him. Don't go with any gold.

Ruins of Castle Dragadune: Prisoner at x14,y1. Silver message at x10,y3. There is no Lord of this castle. You can have all your gold turned into experience points at x13,y15. At x1,y1, all those who are worthy are granted +2 luck. At x5,y5 you find the answer to one of the "Trivia" questions. Dragadune is a bit unusual in that it is the only castle with multiple levels. The stairs down to level 2 (20' under) are located at x4,y10 (you will need Etherialize to use these stairs) and at x7,y15. You can also get into and out of this level at x0,y0. This takes you to the dungeon below Dusk (x15,y12). There is not much on this level but a message about the Clerics of the South being below. Stairs down are at x8,y15. The third level contains some VERY tough monsters and some of the most confusing mapping problems in the game. Fighting through is worth it, however, since at x0,y12 you find the Clerics of the South. They will ask you to find the three tones. If you find them and come back the Clerics will bless you. Their blessing allows you to return to the 7 places in the game that increase your stats and they will be increased again! There are 6 places where the tones appear (they move around, and so will you) they are; x0,y6; x0,y8; x6,y0; x8,x0; x15,y6; x15,y8.

Mount Doom: Prisoner at x1,y14. Silver message at x1,y1. If you don't have the gold key, don't enter the spiral. The interleaf for the silver messages is at x15,y0. The interleaf for the gold messages is at x15,y15. To solve the clues, line up the 6 silver messages in order of the interleaf. Read from top to bottom one letter at a time. When you reach the bottom go to the next column. This will tell you all the places in the game to raise stats. Gold interleaf: line up all 9 gold messages in order of the interleaf. Read each word from top to bottom. This tells you how to finish the game. If you do have the gold key, enter the spiral at x4,y3 (hidden door). You will have to map carefully since there are three spaces to which you must jump to get to the center. At the center will be King Alamar, who will give you an Eye of Goros and instruct you to confront the false King Alamar with the Eye.

Castle Alamar: Prisoner at x2,y2. Silver message at x7,y13. To properly explore this castle, you will need the King's pass (found in A2) and the Eye of Goros (found in Mount Doom). If you don't have the right items, King Alamar will send you on a quest that cannot be solved. Assuming you have the right items, confront the King with the Eye of Goros. He will turn into a demon, and throw you into the Soul Maze. To get out, you must find out the demon's name. His name is Sheltem and is spelled out by the white walls in the dungeon. After doing that, you will be cleared to enter the Inner Sanctum.


Gold messages are found in dungeons. I will first describe the dungeons found under cities and then the ones outdoors. Algary has no dungeon underneath it.

Sorpigal caverns: Steps up/down at x14,y0. Pick up vellum scroll at x1,y2. Nothing else of note.

Portsmith dungeon: Steps up/down at x8,y0. Bronze door at x8,y2 (you'll need the bronze key to enter). Do not disturb the Demons in Conference (x8,y7) unless you can take the Succubus upstairs, these guys will eat your lunch. The bronze key can be found in B2. Fountain at x11,y15 reverses the sex of each character. As you have found out upstairs, males are drained in Portsmith. The best way to solve this problem is to leave your ladies at the inn and have the gents come down to this pool. If you have only 1 or 2 men, you may want to reverse the ladies first, then go back to the inn and reverse the whole party. The fountain at x4,y13 is poison, and the one at x0,y11 causes disease. There is a treasure pool at x5,y11, and for those who are worthy, they can get +2 might at x0,y12. There is a portal at x0,y0 that will send you to the dungeon under Erliquin (20' under, x2,y7)

Dusk Caves: Steps up/down at x14,y0. There are a lot of traps in this cave, also make sure you have the Psychic Protection spell going before entering, Levitation won't hurt either. At x14,y5, there is a flame of agility that will grant those who are worthy +2 speed. To get there, enter the secret door at x12,y5. Gold message at x2,y5. Prism will grant those who are worthy +2 Accuracy at x15,y15. At x15,y12 you will find a passage that will take you to 20' below Dragadoon. At x0,y15 is the Shrine of Ozark. At x2,y5 is a gold message that will allow you to turn off the flame barriers under Erliquin. There are 3 portals in this dungeon. The first, at x9,y1, will take you to the Wizard Ranalou's cave in B3. The one at x11,y1 will take you to the Cave of the Magic Square in D3. The last at x13,y1 will send you to the cave at B2 x8,y4.

Erliquin Caves: Steps up/down at x0,y7. There are two teleports to look for -- one at x0,y5, and one at x15,y5. These will teleport you back and forth between the two sides of the dungeon (and you can go out the back door at x15,y7). There is a request for an access code at x4,y9 that will allow you to turn off the fire barriers. The code is YICU2ME3 and is found under Dusk. There are quite a few minor treasures found around the rest of the dungeon that will be useful to newer characters.

Below Castle Dragadune (10 ft): stairs up to Dragadune at x4,y10. Gold message at x13,y12. 20 ft below: stairs up to 10 ft level at x4,y14.

B1 Caves: Ancient Ruins at x12,y15. Chess piece at x0,y15, but you must go down to the second level and then come back up again to find it. Stairs down to next level at x0,y6. Second level: *Tough* to map. Gold message at x12,y13. Stairs at x15,y6.

B2 Caves (2 sets): First entrance at x8,y4. Medusa's head at x15,y3. There are basilisks here, so be careful!

Warrior's Stronghold entrance at x9,y9. This is also known as Raven's Lair. To get to the cave, go North at x10,y5 then go two east, one north, west, north, west, north and finally west again. Riddle at x6,y11 (in the middle of the room). The answer is crystal, and will give you a crystal key. At x1,y5 you will find a silver door for which you will need a silver key. If you get to that point, you will need Etherialize to get out. The stairs down are at x8,y1. There are some very tough monsters on level 2. Along the west wall (at y6,9 and 12) you will be bombarded by boulders (you can jump over these squares). Up at x6,y14 you will start a series of 4 tests (trial by combat); however, mastering these bad guys will still leave you short of the goal as there are really 5 tests. You get to the 5th test through a secret door at x3,y4. You have to jump across the conveyor belt (x14,y4-14) to the button at x15,y4. Push the button. Go to x14,y1. Hope you survive. You have just met Lord Raven. If you surrender, he will let you live but will take all your gold. Try Power Shield on him if you have it.

B3 Caves (2 sets): Entrance at x0,y6. You will need to jump a couple of spaces. The first time you get to a block, jump 2 times without pause. To get to the Wizard Ranalou, do not search for secret doors, just follow the passageway. The Wizard, along with passages to each of the castles, is at x5,y15. If you do search for secret doors, you will be transported to another part of the same dungeon.

Minotaur's Stronghold: Entrance at x14,y2. Exit at x8,y8. Must have the Ruby Whistle to enter. Gold message at x10,y15. Stairs down to the next level at x14,y12 and x1,y12.

Second level Minotaur's Stronghold: Entrances to the Minotaur's Maze at x9,y3, x8,y3, x7,y3 and x6,y3. If you don't have the Etherealize spell yet (or want to conserve spell points), go north at x7,y4 for 3 spaces (not counting your starting place), then 1 space east, 2 spaces north, 1 space west, 1 space north, 2 spaces west, 2 spaces north, 2 spaces east, and north through the door. The minotaur is at x9,y14. There is a doggie at x3,y4. There is a gold message at x10,y4.

C2 Caves: Entrance at x15,y11. A button to turn off the slides is at x11,y7.

C4 Caves: Need Coral key to enter. There is a dial to set the teleports at x6,y3 and x8,y3. The setting is BJ. The girl at x5,y0 will give you a clue to the setting as will the doggie in the Minotaur's Den. Once you've set the dial, all teleport squares will teleport you to the Volcano god. The god is at x7,y11. He will give you a key card. You will need this card to finish the game.

D3 Caves: These are the magic square caves. First, do not change the number of any of the polyhedrons that aren't spinning already. Here are the numbers to which the polyhedrons must be set:

 x2 ,y14: 16
 x6 ,y14: 3
 x10,y14: 2
 x14,y14: 13
 x2 ,y10: 5
 x6 ,y10: 10
 x10,y10: 11
 x14,y10: 8
 x2 ,y6:  9
 x6 ,y6:  6
 x10,y6:  7
 x14,y6:  15
 x2 ,y2:  4
 x6 ,y2:  15
 x10,y2:  14
 x14,y2:  1

fter setting the polyhedrons properly, pull the lever at x0,y15. You will then get +2 Int, +20 gems, +200 gold, and +2000 Experience points. (Note that the numbers equal 34 if you add them up vertically, horizontally and/or diagonally).

E3 Caves: Entrance at x1,y4 is beyond the Diamond Door. You will need the Diamond key to get here. This is the Astral Plane. All of the walls of this plane are invisible. You must carefully map your way around them to the 5 portals. Entering the portals will send you back to Sorpigal, but if your wizard has level 7 spells, cast 7-1 and you will be right back. After you have found all 5 portals (they are numbered), your key card will work on the Inner Sanctum. Enter and gain your reward!

E4 Caves: Entrance at x10,y5. Stairs down to next level at x1,y3 and at x13,y4. There is another stairway at x13,y5 that goes directly to level 3. The Gold message #7 is at x8,y13. There is a Crystal Grate at x13,y2 for which you will need the crystal key. Second level: stairs down to third level at x0,y3. There is not much else on the Second level except along the bottom are some increasingly difficult monsters that you could try. The third level is a bit of a challenge to map and to fight through, but you will find nothing of great import here. There are no stairs down from the 3rd to the 4th levels. The fourth level can only be entered directly from the surface (C4 x13,y13). Fourth level (40 ft under the surface), there is a chess piece at x0,y15 guarded by dragons. The stairs up are at x13,y4.
