Lawenilothehl is an outlaw settlement in the eastern half of the Wilderness. It is home to many dangerous types, most of whom are hostile.

Just east of the entrance to Lawenilothehl is Barnabas's Black Market, which buys and sells a lot of assorted goods at vastly inflated prices — about four times the usual amounts, with the penalty halved if the PC has joined the thieves' guild.


To the north of the Black Market is the home of Yergius the master thief, leader of the Thieves Guild. Yergius will train neutral and chaotic PCs the Pick pockets skill for free. Killing Yergius will make the PC the head of the Thieves' Guild, which will greatly reduce the prices at Barnabas's store while bringing a penalty to shop prices at other shops.

Hotzenplotz the crime lord and his two half-orc bouncers Grunge and Munge live near the center of Lawenilothehl.

Skriek the cloaked ratling has a variety of keys for sale, for the right price. Note that all his prices are halved for females. As of v. 2.3.0 a drunken dwarf can also be found stumbling around the settlement.

In the north-west corner of the town lives Kranf Niest, the mad doctor.

Lawenilothehl also features many beggars, outlaws, outlaw leaders, bandits, muggers, cutpurses and assassins. Many of these types of monsters are rarely found elsewhere — with beggars and muggers not appearing in dungeons or wilderness encounters at all — making them notable candidates for the first kill.


Hotzenplotz will assign the quest to kill Tywat Pare, the sheriff of Terinyo, in return for an amulet of chaos.

If the "Save Yriggs" quest has been taken from Rynt in Terinyo and Jharod is still alive, Hotzenplotz will assign the quest to kill Jharod in the Village Dungeon. Chaos Knights can also get the quest (and access to the village dungeon) without the Yriggs quest if Rynt refuses to give it. As a reward, PCs without Healing can receive the skill from the mad doctor.

Once the PC has the Pick pockets skill, Yergius will provide the Thieves' Guild Membership Quest, where you must prove your valor as a thief. Once completed, the PC will be a member of the guild, and can receive either theoretical (improves skill dice) or practical (trains skill directly) training in Climbing, Detect traps, Disarm traps, Listening, Pick locks, and Stealth.

Answering the drunken dwarf's riddle allows the PC to find a map fragment on the appropriate level of the infinite dungeon. Part of the Rolf quest.


Lawenilothehl is an anagram for "Hole in the wall", an Americanism for a shady place.
