The Ornate Mirror, a unique magical artifact found in the Apothecary's Cellar in the Blighted Village, holds secrets and dangers waiting to be unraveled. Guarding the entrance to a hidden lab belonging to the Thayian necromancer, Ilyn Toth, this mirror possesses a magic that can unleash devastating powers upon intruders. But fear not; there are ways to bypass its defenses and gain access to the hidden lab.

The Art of Bypassing

Multiple Paths to Success

Overcoming the Ornate Mirror's enchantments involves skill checks and clever strategies. Here are a few ways to bypass its defenses:

  • An Intimidation check with a DC of 15. A forceful approach might just do the trick.
  • If you're a Bard, try an Intimidation check during the first question. Choosing the right dialogue option can help you outwit the mirror.
  • For the Barbarian, a display of brute strength with a DC 15 Strength check can shatter the mirror.
  • If you've read the Dark Journal, attempt to deceive the mirror into thinking you're Ilyn Toth with a Persuasion check, DC 15.

Alternatively, you can simply destroy the mirror. However, be warned that it requires a hit dealing at least 22 damage to truly damage it.

The Mirror's Puzzle

If you wish to proceed without force, you'll face a series of questions. Find the answers hidden within the shop and cellar to successfully navigate this dangerous game. Here are a few sample questions:

What do you think of the zulkir known as Szass Tam?

  • "Szass Tam is a foul, wretched creature."
  • A passive DC 15 History check reveals him as a foul lich.
  • An Intimidation check with a DC of 15, threatening to have the mirror sent to Szass Tam as an antique.

Why might one use balsam ointment?

  • "I read a doctor's journal - he used balsam to clean a wound."
  • To clean a wound.
  • "Balsam disinfects wounds. Surely everyone knows that?"
  • "I use it to clean wounds out in the wilds."

If you could see anything in me, what would it be?

  • "I'd look for whatever spell will rid me of this worm in my head."
  • "I'd see how to safely keep the powers this mind flayer's worm has given me."
  • "[BARD] Nothing good tends to come of ambition in stories like this. I would see you freed."
  • "[SORCERER] Nothing - you're a thing of magic. I can shatter this prison for you if you wish."
  • "[Astarion] I'd see how to safely keep the powers this mind flayer's worm has given me."
  • "[Gale] I'd see myself in my next incarnation: a living manifestation of Netherese magic. A mythal in my own right."
  • "[Karlach] I'd see myself whole again. My heart beating away in my chest. And Zariel's head on a pike for good measure."
  • "[Lae'zel] I'd see myself as a kith'rak: ghaik head in one hand, silver sword in the other."
  • "[Shadowheart] I'd see myself as Shar's Chosen, with all her power at my disposal."
  • "[Wyll] I'd see Mizora, cowering before me and begging for my mercy."

Intimidating the mirror or answering its questions correctly will not only grant you entry into the lab but also earn the Mirror Master Inspiration for the Charlatan.
