Fort Irony

Fort Irony is a small fort southeast of Bravil containing goblins (quest-related). It contains only one zone, Fort Irony.

The interior is littered with the skeletal remains of the goblins' victims. This fort contains two samples of the Shadowbanish Wine needed for the quest A Venerable Vintage.

Zone 1: Fort Irony[edit]

Fort Irony
Natural caverns section

After a long corridor from the entrance, in the first room you will find two leveled enemies (likely goblins) and a minor loot chest surrounded by a large quantity of bones. In the southeastern corner of the next corridor is a minor loot chest: step around the pressure plate at D to avoid the Swinging Mace trap at C. At the next junction you can head either northwest or southeast. The choice is immaterial as the remainder of the zone is a loop.

Heading to the southeast leads to a room where a leveled enemy guards a Shadowbanish Wine chest (W) and a minor loot chest. A skewered rat containing three portions of rat meat is crackling over the fire and another scattering of bones around it suggests the goblins have a healthy appetite. Head through the hole in the wall in the west corner into a cave section - the next room contains two enemies and a minor loot chest.

A winding series of corridors leads you back into the fort. On the way, you will encounter an enemy next to another pressure plate and Swinging Mace combination (C and D). Eventually, you will come to a room with up to two enemies and a minor loot chest. Complete the loop by heading northeast and dispatching the final enemy, before heading outside.
