The Frontier Caverns are tunnels accessed from within The Shadow Fort via a Goblin-dug tunnel in the far northwest corner of the fort. See the hand pointer on the map below for the location of the entrance.

  • Trying to operate the large iron gate opposite the entrance gate to the Proving Grounds during the Notice Board quest, Put the Eye Out, may grant Pawn Status Travels Knowledge for the Frontier Caverns.
  • It is possible for Pawns to acquire two stars of Pawn Status Travels Knowledge for the Frontier Caverns after engaging the Goblins in the first chamber, in which case trying to activate the gate in the Proving Grounds may not grant Knowledge.


The Caverns contain an abundance of Devilwort and Gold, as well as Skulls, Throwblasts and Dragon's Spit; the Goblins have left items in a number of gather spots.

See also Proving Grounds, which has three treasure chests.
