This chapter presents the map of the first mission of the Courtyard - Burn the Hives. Unlike the three next maps (mission 2, 3 and 4), the map of this mission is relatively small, without additional corridors and intersections. Regardless of your decisions, you will explore the entire dungeon in order to complete the main objective (burning the hives) - you can't skip any rooms or avoid encounters with the enemies.
Your main objective during this mission is to find three hives (points 2, 3 and 5 on the map) and burn them down with the provided torch-like items. The third one is blocked by a room with a boss fight (point 4 on the map). Once you enter it, you will encounter Crocodilian. He serves the role of the boss in this dungeon, but you will also encounter him several times during the latter missions. A complete walkthrough of this battle can be found in the Bosses section of this guide.
