Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura Wiki



The Ancient Temple (also known as the Temple of the Derian-Ka) is located at 776W 919S, and is marked on the player's map after hearing the final rumor from any citizen of Ashbury about its general location and nature.

The Temple is notable for being the location of the Alter of Moorindal, and for being the home of the decaying form of Torian Kel. If Geoffrey_Tarellond-Ashe is with you then he can provide additional exposition regarding the Ancient Temple's connection to Kerghan and the Derian-Ka.
