Con Cave

The Con Cave (formerly Cave of Betrayal) is a cave dungeon far to the east of Casabranca and the Last Chance Saloon.


In order to progress through the cave, it is necessary to have at least two people as there are barriers and gates that can't be traversed alone.

The cave's magic separates travelers soon after they enter, tormenting them with monsters disguised as their fellow travelers, then, without warning, brings them together. Most groups then kill each other out of paranoia.


The hero, Meena and Maya enter this cave in hopes of finding out what happened to Hank Hoffman, Jr. as much as to find the treasure in the cave.

Soon after they enter, Meena and Maya fall into pits, leaving the hero to fend for him/herself. Going down some stairs, he/she finds and follows what appear to be his/her companions, but they are actually a pair of frolickers that attack. After the enemies are defeated, the hero falls into a pit and sees what appear to be his/her companions being chased by demons. Speaking to them or trying to leave results in a boss battle with 2 tricksies and 2 vampire bats.

After this battle, the hero follows the path further and finds what appear to be his/her companions but... no, this really is Meena and Maya, but Maya reveals that the sisters have been tormented by demonic replicas of the hero, and thinks that they are dealing with another one. Meena disagrees, however, so Maya proposes a test, deciding to ask a question only the hero would know, the question being which sister was found gambling at Endor. When the hero answers it correctly, she apologises for doubting and the twins rejoin the hero.

Deeper in the dungeon, the group finds a symbol of faith, the cavern's only treasure.

  • If the hero does not answer Maya's question correctly, she will start to oust him/her for it, only for Meena to further insist that the hero is not an impostor. Maya will then ask the hero the same question again, and the pattern will repeat until the hero answers correctly.
