Yggaz the fool lives in Terinyo. He has many pieces of good advice, which are unfortunately both extremely cryptic and mixed in with random useless sayings.

In addition to his role as an advisor (albeit a cryptic one), he also is willing to trade any potions of booze the player has for random potions. This can be quite useful, as Beggars in the nearby outlaw town of Lawenilothehl will give you a potion of booze in return for ~40 gp.

Yggaz will trade potions of booze for random potions even if he's hostile (though he might pick them up after dropping them). Giving him a bottle of antediluvian dwarven mead or a bottle of antediluvian elven wine will make him a companion, part of his role in the volcano quest.

Monster memory[]

Random clothing and what appears to be a random gait to his walk make this individual appear, well, foolish. Stopping to talk to anyone who will listen, a few words are said before skipping or hopping away and taking a few swallows from a bottle.


Yggaz is an anagram of Zagyg, the mad wizard of Gary Gygax's World of Greyhawk, the original Dungeons & Dragons setting.
