The main gate is opened by a lever situated above the gate, just outside of the northwest tower.
The Westron Labrys bandits within the fort are not, by default hostile. If the party includes any un-disguised male members the bandits will become hostile only if Ophis spots a male party member.
It is usually possible for undisguised males to safely pass the fort provided Ophis is avoided.
If carried, Ophis' Badge of Amity also guarantees safe passage through the castle.

- "Seems there's more than one way to deal with bandits."
- "This fort was built by a duke of old. I reckon it's worth investigating."
ERROR!!! In the English language version much of the female bandit voice acting does not directly match the subtitles, thought the overall message is usually the same.
- It is occasionally possible to encounter Ophis, and kill her quickly without her followers becoming hostile - in this situation the other female bandits will remain passive.
