Hi there. Just bought the game recently, its amazing and I am absolutely blown away by what you pulled off here.

Unfortunately I ran into a rather nasty bug just now. I was exploring the Scowling Dens, and I was on the second floor just about halfway through clearing it when I get an announcement saying some woman (Elizabell?) needed to be escorted to the wastelands. Ok, so I find her and I try to make my way back out because she is pretty low on health. I get to the first floor and make my way back to the exit out of the dungeon and I find that the exit point is infact an "exit to scowling dungeons level 2". Huh? So, I press M to look at my big map just to see if I missed the exit to the wastelands. The big map portrays the same exit to be leading to the wastelands - where as ingame when I click on the actual exit it brings me back to level 2 of the scowling dungeon. I am effectively trapped. So I had to quit out to get back to my covent. Nasty bug...

You can use your teleport stone to make a gate to your covenant house, but unless you find some other way out of the dungeon your escort quest is essentially doomed to failure. :(

Sometimes saving and quiting, then restarting can fix stuff. But first make a portal near the exit. I don't know if she'll still be there though.

This sounds a lot like the bug that I encountered and posted about in this thread (http://www.soldak.com/forums/showthread.php?t=428). As Delilah pointed out, saving and restarting DoP will most probably fix this issue as it did for me.

Yeah, usually using your teleport stone to get out and save/exit will fix most of these issues. I will look into the problem and see why the portals are acting up though.

Thanks guys. Haven't noticed another instance of this occurring since then. Having a blast!
