Access to this area is restricted by Pharod, and Barr will not let the party through until they have spoken to his boss. Once the party is in the catacombs, they will not be able to return to the Buried Village without paying Barr a bribe, unless
- the Nameless One has the Bronze Sphere
- the Nameless One has 10+ Strength or Dexterity, in which case he can grab Barr's arm and force him to let them through.

- Glyve (stone face at X=1110 Y=1590, near the entrance to the Mosaic Crypt), who has a quest to free him from the stone he is encased in. 5000 XP reward.
There are many hostile creatures in the area:
And a few corpses that can be spoken to after learning the Stories-Bones-Tell ability:
- Burt (X=1450 Y=710)
- Chad (X=1620 Y=2480)
- Gris (Crypt of the Embraced, X=620 Y=1400)
- Lowden (Crypt of Dismemberment, X=930 Y=950)
Crypt of the Embraced Edit
In the Crypt of the Embraced (entrance at X=2400 Y=360), is a large tomb and several smaller ones, all in pristine condition despite the age of the crypt. Opening the big tomb prompts three Ghouls to appear. They are tough, but reward 420 XP each (and high quality loot) when killed.
Inside the big tomb is Gris, who visibly dies a grisly death. He can be conversed with once the Nameless One learns the Stories-Bones-Tell ability.
Shattered Crypt Edit
Near the entrance to the Crypt of the Embraced lies the Shattered Crypt (entrance at X=3200 Y=650). Piles of bones are scattered in the back of the crypt. Crossing the center of the crypt causes a number of Lesser Vargouilles appear and attack. They are worth 200 XP each. The number of vargouilles can vary from 2 to at least 20, possibly dependent on the level of the party. Area effects such as insect swarms can help here. Punch daggers and 510 Copper Commons can be found here.
The back wall has holes covered in "aromatic slime".
Mosaic Crypt Edit
The Mosaic Crypt (entrance at X=230 Y=1550) contains only a few traps (the one in the center is particularly potent) and a tomb, in which several coppers and an enchanted hammer can be found.
Crypt of Dismemberment Edit
The Crypt of Dismemberment (entrance at X=330 Y=870) contains many traps, so it might be wise to send only one companion down the hall, Morte, for instance. The tomb doesn't have much of value, but on the left side of the tomb is a trap door that leads to a lower level, where a few Cranium Rats crawl in an enormous pool of blood, guts and severed limbs, and scatter when the Nameless One arrives.
In the pool of blood lies another body (X=930 Y=950), nearly indistinguishable from the rest. It is Lowden, who can be spoken to after the Nameless One learns the Stories-Bones-Tell ability. (Note: In the vanilla game, it can be very difficult to initiate dialogue with Lowden, since the trigger is overlapped by the blood puddle's info. This issue is fixed with Qwinn's Fixpack)
There are quite a few items to be looted in this area.
