The Dwarven Graveyard features two levels.
The upper level consists of a large field packed with undead, including zombies, ghuls, shadows, and wights, and many tombstones. In the centre of the map there is a mausoleum with a downward stairwell within it. Reading the tombstones will train literacy, and if the PC wishes to engage in grave robbing, there are many treasures that are potentially available from the graves as well. The undead outside are generally worth killing, since the danger level in the area is quite high compared to what the PC might see elsewhere at this point in the game, so there is a chance of finding exceptionally good items in this area.
|#||Secret passage||Searching will reveal the hidden passage.|
|Y||Bone golem||Guards the elemental gauntlets|
|Z||Griff Bloodax||Undead chaos dwarven berserker|
|+||Grave||Griff Bloodax's grave, whereupon digging will yield the Sword of Nonnak|
The lower level is a level of fixed design peppered with traps and undead. In the eastern chamber of the room lives Nonnak, the master necromancer, Griff Bloodax, the undead chaos dwarven berserker, and numerous undead. Killing Nonnak and Griff Bloodax will complete the Portal Quest and allow access to the lower CoC. Griff Bloodax can be killed either in melee or by pouring holy water on his grave. The rewards for completing the quest seem to somehow depend on the manner in which Griff is killed, but the details of this have not been worked out.
Digging up the grave of Griff Bloodax will reveal the Sword of Nonnak, wrapped up in an antediluvian dwarven map fragment. In the back of the chamber, the PC will also find a hidden room containing a bone golem and the extremely useful elemental gauntlets.
