Oola, a reclusive Asura whose magical skills and achievements have made her a nearly legendary figure, once resided at the bottom of a labyrinthine system of caverns. Disdaining polite society, she sequestered herself in a hidden laboratory to continue her work in peace and quiet. When her fellow Asura needed her expertise in the battle against the Destroyers, Oola rejoined them. With no one left to maintain the golems that once guarded the lab, her creations went berserk. The only way to restore order was by tracking down the TPS regulator, the ultimate source of these major malfunctions.

Master Dungeon Guide

Oola's Lab, also referred to as Oola's Workshop, is the large underground laboratory complex belonging to Oola. The main lab itself resides behind a series of caverns full of various defensive mechanisms and traps. Within the largest room of the lab, several replications of the Iron Forgeman, all smaller than the original, can be found in various stages of development. The lab's defense systems are ran by the total protection security regulator golem.

Notes[edit]

  • The Area Map incorrectly shows the location of the Dungeon Key on the first level. The Dungeon Key is actually dropped by Xien, and you can only kill him at the end of the first level.
  • Xien will not spawn without the required quest (Little Workshop of Horrors — obtained from Blimm in Rata Sum), thus preventing access to level 2.
Bug Bug.Two bugs can force the party to restart the dungeon: (a) On the first level, the gate leading to the middle area sometimes fails to open. (b) The first floor Dungeon Key sometimes fails to appear after killing Xien. There are no work-arounds for either problem.
Bug Bug.On the second level, the AI-controlled creatures will attack and kill fire traps. Once they start attacking, you can also cause AoE damage to them.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Total Protection Systems Regulator Golem, or TPS Regulator Golem, may be a reference to the film Office Space's TPS reports.
  • The actual message written on the Lost Note also appears to be a reference to a running joke in the Office Space.
