The "B" marks the location of Dardin's Pit

Dardin's Pit is located at the top of a forest valley straight North of Lord British's castle. It conceals just the Mark of Kings, that can also be found in many other dungeons, therefore the game can be cleared without entering this dungeon.

Dardin's Pit was renamed "Cave of Death" in the NES version. Also, in that version it conceals the Silver Pick, an item unique to the NES that is necessary to obtain the Mystic Swords (i.e. the Exotic Weapons).



  • G = Gremlin (steals food)
  • T = Trap
  • W = Strange wind (blows out torches)
X = False wall
