Other information related to Fort Deadlight

Check out the walkthrough for Blow the Man Down quest in our guide. One of the things that you can learn from that page is the way to get inside the fort. Hanging Principi flag and docking in the port "peacefully" is the best choice - this variant allows you to walk around a huge portion of the fort without a risk of being attacked by the pirates. It also allows you to get rid of Captain Benweth by using a ruse.

Dealing with Benweth allows you to visit the rest of the fort (before that you were forbidden to enter them) - mainly the fort's upper ramparts, the forge and the highest floor where the command room is.
