Derth has several stores:
- Armoury (heavy armor)
- Tanner (light armor)
- Swordsmith (swords)
- Knives and daggers (daggers)
- Death from Afar (ranged weapons)
- Herbalist (infusions)
- Jewelry (gems)
- Stire the Alchemist
This sleepy hamlet sports two quests: a shady Cornac in the northeast will invite characters to fight in the Arena. He will leave town when you reach level 13.
When your character reaches level 14, Derth will undergo a magical siege by lightning elementals. The open layout of the town makes this quest extremely dangerous for the unprepared. In the absence of high lightning resistance, fabulous mobility, or a simply powerful charcter, you may wish to postpone this until a later level. (The quest becomes unavailable after level 20(?), however.)
If the elementals are defeated, the cloud of darkness and lightning will remain. In order to dispel this, the character must complete the second half of this quest, by defeating Urkis on Tempest Peak. Tempest Peak is inaccessible without help -- either from Linaniil in Angolwen, or from the leader of Zigur.
