Other information related to the Crookspur Island
Traveling around the island is difficult, because unauthorized people do not have access to selected parts of the fort. After arriving to the island, try first of all, correctly conduct a conversation with the ogre at the drawbridge (M37,4), i.e. confirm your participation in the slave auction. This will unlock your access to the auction site and in addition, thanks to the meeting with the auctioneer Marcca (unlock the quest A Shrewd Proposition earlier in Dunnage), you will be able to enter the fort and reach the office of Master Kuy (M37,13).
The dungeons, unfortunately, remain forbidden all the time, even if you "made friends" with slavers. The easiest way is to sneak to them from the side of the Sea Cave (M37,8). They offer the possibility of sneaking and reaching slaves, without fights. However, if you are caught and forced to deal with slavers, murdering them will lead to the deterioration of the hero's relationship with this "faction".
