|The Ruins of Aernst Castle|
A bandit base located near the coast.
- "I did not ask to become leader of this band of thieves. Nevertheless, it is my birthright and one I've embraced with open arms. As a bandit and a man, I make my own path. I've been on the run for longer than you've been alive, with no intention of getting caught. Every month or so the duke sends some weak-boned adolescent to try and oust us from the ruins, and every month we return him to his superiors relieved of his wallet and his dignity. We wonder if they'll ever learn."
- Salomet's Grimoire in a chest at the highest point of the castle.
- Wakestone Shard atop the remnants of the western lookout tower facing the sea.
- Chainmail Bracers in a chest atop the right lookout tower when viewed from the northern bridgeway main entrance (guarded by Sling, a male Barbarian).
- Ferrystone located on the tip of a boat at the anchorage behind the castle. Normally a male bandit is there fishing.
- Wyrmward Perfume in a chest next to some boxes after the first flight of stairs going to the tower.
