After escaping The Prison of Dragoth Theron wanders on to get Lord Chaos. He has lost too many time in this adventure, and now it was about time to defeat the Dark Lord. He has sent the adventurers souls back to their Mirrors, but he had a strange feeling of not having seen them for the last time. In thoughts, he crosses a wood not looking around. He knew noone will dare to attack him, since he is glowing in an aura of might, which distracts the shadows of the night...

"Here you seen him", says the Dark Lord, pointing to his crystal ball. "He will soon reach me, but I am still not ready for him. Maybe I will never be. In any case, you have to stop him. I will help you as much as I can."
"My Lord", Dragoth replies "I have lost many minions the last time I tried to stop Theron. I even died by myself."
"And now you live again. I have resurrected you to serve me again. And that is not all." He pointed to the door, and four hooded beings, each of them more than 7 feet tall, entered the room. "You already met", the Dark Lord says and smirks...


Escape the Prison.


A new, better, harder, more complicated, longer version of "The Prison Of Dragoth" featuring Dragoth's council and the same riddles I use in all my dungeons. Have fun!

I suggest playing the CSB for Windows version which is slightly improved (requires CSBwin version 9.6v5 or newer). You can also play the older Dungeon Master for PC version.

Created with DMute by George Gilbert, Textmute by Zyx and CSBuild by Paul Stevens. Thanks to Beowuuf for the Hexguide and thanks to all, who played the versions before and contributed to the enhancements I could do.


Replace the Dungeon.dat file of DM PC or CSBWin with the one provided in the archive.

The archive contains the following versions: v1.1 DMPC, v1.2 DMPC, v1.3 CSBwin, v1.3 DMPC, v1.4 DMPC, v1.5 CSBwin, v1.5a CSBwin.

Version 1.5a (2004-05-17)
Added a hint scroll.
Changed the timing of a speed-riddle.
The game should be playable without this update, but if you constantly get fried in the "run and run" part, use this version.
Version 1.5 (2004-04-04)
Removed all orphans.
Added and changed some texts.
Changed some minor stuff.
Version 1.4 (2004-04-04)
All changes of v1.3 were undone.
Fixed all know bugs (2 pits, 1 pressure pad, 1 teleporter).
Added some decent hint where needed.
Added a story.
Controlled some monster-flooding.
Did some other balancing stuff.
Version 1.3 (2003-04-17)
Subsituted a whole Level, the others remain unchanged.
Added a requested hint.
Added a story
Version 1.2 (2002-04-13)
Changed a pit which led to nowhere.
Added some details for atmosphere reasons.
Adjusted some areas in difficulty (like the "Battlefield"). I think the fighter way is now as difficult as the others.
Removed a bug which could lead to a dead end for the party at the neta way.
Added some hints for playing into this file, so you can avoid using DMute totally if stuck. I think having to use this destroys much of the fun you could have with this dungeon.
Version 1.1 (2002-03-28)
Fixed some minor bugs and removed the teleporter and some items dedicated for playtesting.
Version 1.0 (2002-03-12)
