Antediluvian map fragments are artifact scrolls that are scattered across the Drakalor chain. There are 6 of them in total. They appear as ancient map fragments when unidentified.

Reading a map fragment while the PC is in possession of all 6 will prompt you to combine them, leaving the antediluvian dwarven map in their place.

Desirability[]

All 6 of them are needed to complete the Rolf quest, which has many desirable rewards. Alternatively, as artifacts they can be used to easily satisfy the demented ratling.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

ID fragment

The location of this fragment can be revealed by talking to the drunken dwarf in Lawenilothehl and solving his riddle.

Ancient shop fragment

A map fragment can be found in a scroll shop in the Antediluvian Dungeon. This fragment will often be sold for an exorbitant price.

Griff fragment

A map fragment can be found by digging up Griff's remains.

Gladiator fragment

The dwarven gladiator NPC in the arena will give the PC a map fragment if they chat with him while wielding Rolf's Saviour and Rolf's Companion. Alternatively, he can be killed, and he will drop the map fragment when he dies. Rolf's Savior can be guaranteed by talking with Thrundarr about "Rolf" before receiving his 4th quest reward while lawful.

Sinister fragment

First, talk with Thrundarr about "Rolf". Then, talk with the grizzled dwarven veteran NPC in the HMV. This will allow the PC to find an eerily silent glade to the north of the mad minstrel's hut. An ancient dwarven key can be found by digging up the white grave there. This key can then be used to unlock the portal at the bottom of the Sinister dungeon. The portal leads to a four level dungeon, which features antediluvian enemies. The second and third levels are shifting dungeons, and the map fragment can be found lying on a trap on the fourth level.

Random fragment

One map fragment can be dropped by a random monster. While it's common to find the 6th fragment shortly after acquiring the other 5, it can drop at any point in the game. As an artifact, it cannot be lost in the Infinite Dungeon.
