The Journey Begins

As you arrive in Bowerstone, you will receive a message from Theresa who informs you that she will be running a little late. You have five minutes before she appears. At this time you can explore Bowerstone Market, buy some new items or make some gold by picking up a job (find the glowing exclamation mark nearby!).

Note: At this point I would recommend doing a bit of blacksmithing to earn around 1500 gold and use the money to purchase the market stalls on the bridge. Investing in property will give you a daily income which will increase as you purchase more and more. Money is even accrued when your console is turned off, giving you a nice gold bonus when you load your game up again. Handy!

Head down the road to the right of the blacksmith until you reach Bowerstone Old Town. As you enter the area, the guard or the crooked man from your childhood (whomever you gave the warrants to) will approach you and give you a discount for all stores in Old Town. Buy something if you wish, and continue to follow the gold dust trail through the district and out the big, stone gate to Rookridge Road.

On entry to Rookridge ypu’ll be informed of bandits ahead. Not being one to heed their warnings, we will continue down the path. You will come across a looter going through the wreckage of a cart on the side of the road. Kill him if you like and keep following the path. Soon afterwards you will be ambushed by a small group of bandits. Once they are all dead, climb up the hill at the back of the area (where the bandits were shooting from) and at the end of the path you’ll find a chest. Return to the main road and continue.

As you move through the area along the set path, keep an eye out for chests to loot! There is a chest beneath the arches (left) and another behind the large rock (right).

As you reach the next set of ruins, fight off another small group of bandits and look beneath the arches here for a chest to loot. Keep going along the dirt path. There is a small bandit camp at the base of the next hill, kill the occupants within and look around for a chest behind the large rock in the centre of the area.

Eventually Theresa will alerts you to some additional bandits loitering around on the road ahead, so as before make your way through them and head left to find a broken bridge. Walk to the end of the bridge and dive into the water below.

When you reach the broken bridge, dive into the water below (left). Swim to the nearby beach (right).

Swim to your left and climb out onto the beach. Talk to the NPC Herman here, whose son has gone missing in the nearby cave. He will tag along as you explore the next area. Enter the Hobbe Cave and follow the path until you see a brief cinematic introducing the Hobbes. Defeat the group that attacks you and continue up the ramp, make your way through the tunnels at the top of the room until you come across a locked door. Herman asks you to find a way past it.

At this point, the dog will walk off and if you follow it, it will helpfully lead you to another entrance. Make your way through the tunnel here and jump down to the next room and destroy the wooden barricade blocking the door in the water.

Ascend the ramp and take the tunnel away from the previously locked door into a large room filled with Hobbes. Fight your way through them. Climb the large, circular ramp around the outside of the room and defeat the groups of hobbes that come to attack you as you go. At the top of the room, you should see a tunnel leading to a ladder. Before going in here, drop down to a lower ledge on the left for a chest.

Climb back up to the top use the ladder to exit the cave and return to Rookridge. As you exit, find the path leading around to the back of this building to the left to find another silver key . Afterwards, return to the exit and continue up dirt path on the hill to the left to exit the area into Oakfield.

Climb the ladder to exit the hobbe cave (left) and then look behind the building you emerge from for a silver key (right).
