Morkardar is the first level in The Deeper Dungeons expansion to Dungeon Keeper.

Description Edit

Morkardar is the first level in Deeper Dungeons, and a worthy one, at that.

Morkardar is a lengthy map, where you'll have to face an enemy hero outpost, along with many many tunnels filled with baddies, neutral creatures, rooms, Dungeon Specials, breaches, and an enemy Keeper.

Dungeon Specials Edit

Neutral Assets Edit

Spell Books Edit

Trap Crates Edit

Wandering Heroes Edit

  • 4 level 3 Thief-icon Thieves and 3 level 2 Archer-icon Archers - In the cavern to the east of Red's dungeon.
  • 4 level 3 and 2 level 5 Samurai-icon Samurai - In the cavern to the west of Red's dungeon.
  • 3 level 5 Barbarian-icon Barbarians and 2 level 4 Wizard-icon Wizards - In the eastern room with the water.
  • 5 level 5 Fairy-icon Fairies - In the east dyke between the rooms.
  • 3 level 5 Fairy-icon Fairies - In the north-east room at the end of the dyke.
  • 4 level 6 Priestess-icon Priestesses - In the hero base to the west of the central river.
  • 5 level 5 Monk-icon Monks - In the room below them.
  • 4 level 7 Wizard-icon Wizards - In the cross-shaped area guarding the Trap Lightning Small Lightning Strike spell book.

Walkthrough Edit

If played passively enough, the enemy Keeper will take care of the hero outpost as well as the top neutral hero room, although doing so will give the Trap Lightning Small Lightning Strike spell to the enemy Keeper, as well as lots of land.

To the right is a neutral Torture Room Icon Small Torture Chamber, with a Horned-reaper-icon Horned Reaper inside. It is possible to dig into this instantly, dig a tunnel to the enemy Keeper, possess the Reaper, and cheese the enemy Keeper in a matter of minutes.

Once you capture your portal, a tunnel leads straight to a locked door, with plenty of Archer-icon Archers behind it, as well as the closest Gold Seams. On top of the gold, there's a locked white tunnel leading to a neutral Prison Icon Small Prison, filled with a party of neutral heroes awaiting to be rescued, a Wizard-icon Wizard, a Monk-icon Monk, and a Fairy-icon Fairy.

To the left is a dangerous cavern filled with a party of heroes, with 2 level 7 Neutral Warlock-icon Warlocks as a reward.

On the left-most side of the map, there's a tunnel almost completely surrounded by Impenetrable Rock, filled with many invasions, traps, as well as many deadly hero bands roaming about, with only a Reveal Map special as a reward. This is mostly useless considering the danger of the heroes inside, you'll most likely be better off taking out the blue Keeper.

Other versions Edit

17 May 1997 (as level 18 Blaise End) The Deeper Dungeons (18 September 1997) KeeperFX (2 May 2006)
BlaiseEndProtoMap MorkardarDD MorkardarFX

An early version of this level appeared in at least two Dungeon Keeper prototypes as level 18 Blaise End. In addition to the differences seen above:

  • The Portal generation speed is 900 turns
  • Red and Blue have a creature limit of 45 and 50 respectively
  • Blue has to research SpeedMonster Icon Small Speed Monster rather than it being available for him at the start
  • The Temple Icon Small Temple (rather than the Torture Room Icon Small Torture Chamber) immediately becomes available once one is claimed
  • The Treasure Room Icon Small Treasure Room above the neutral Torture Room Icon Small Torture Chamber is neutral rather than hero-aligned. This is actually visible above (different shades of white), but easy to miss.
  • The heroes surrounding the platform in the east room with the water are neutral rather than hero-aligned, and one level lower.
  • There is an Increase Level instead of a Resurrect Creature in that room.
  • There are no Fairy-icon Fairies in the west dyke or the north-west room.
  • There is a Locate Hidden World instead of a Reveal Map in that room. This is likely the infamous missing Locate Hidden World intended to be used to access Secret 5.
  • The starting objective is 'It appears you have a rival. Another Keeper believes he is more ruthless and evil than you. We shall soon see.'
  • In the hero Workshop Icon Small Workshop to the south-east is a Trap Boulder Small Boulder Trap crate and an actual Boulder trap. There is no Trap Lightning Small Lightning Trap crate.
  • This version uses the snowy textures.
  • Where the Prison Icon Small Prison is in the final version is a large pool of water with a few Prison tiles. There's also no second Door Iron Small Iron Door.
Final Prototype

In KeeperFX, the hero-owned Treasure Room Icon Small Treasure Room above the neutral Torture Room Icon Small Torture Chamber is changed back to neutral.
