Appendix L - Locations - complete list


Abbr is the dungeon level displayed in the lower right corner of the screen, DL is the danger level, tttn is the top trap type number. For any Caverns of Chaos levels the danger level equals the dungeon level and the top trap type is equal to (level x 5) - 1. So, for example, on D:1 the trap that you would find in the top left hand corner of the screen, if you could get there and make one, is an arrow trap (trap number 4). Within these lists the ttt just increases by 5 each time.

[1] The DL of the Shortcut level/Ogre Cave may or may not vary with CoC level it corresponds to.

[2] The DL of the SMC is roughly equal to the PC's level.

[3] The DL of the ID is equal to the level of the ID divided by 3 up to a maximum of 45.

[4] ChAoS' and Emperor Moloch's Lair corruption rate is special. See section 0.10.2.1 for details.

[5] The false Minotaur levels have a danger level equal to the equivalent real Minotaur level. ie between 27 and 31. Their ttt varies. The progression of the table above does hold, but since you can't tell one false level from another other than by ttt I didn't think it was worth writing them down. There is space for 14 false Minotaur levels, but I've only seen 12 so far. If 12 is the maximum there are only 172 locations. (The remaining two maze levels are optional, so there are between 172 and 174 locations). See section 2.14.1 for details.

[6] Dak, Li-Hon-Kay, Ripclaw, Spardakius, Bonk (Arena), Waldenbrook, Ruun, Thrundarr, Garth, Glod, Bart, Torgall (Dwarftown), Khelavaster (level 16), Bugs (level 33 or 34), Yulgash (Air Temple), Fistanarius (level 50).

[7] Locations which are actually part of Caverns of Chaos, and thus are not included in this table, are: Arena (3-5), Big Room (6-7), Si level (8), Dwarftown (9-11), Animated Forest (15), CoC Graveyard (17-18), Water Temple (19-20), Banshee level (22-24), Casino (30-31), Battle Bunnies level (33-34), Cat Lord level (35-36), Air Temple (38-42), Earth Temple (42-46), Elemental Anomalies (48), Frictionless Ice (49), Metaplane (50).
