The right-hand portion of the level contains a random maze. The magic portal opens somewhere in this maze.

The marked Deli contains a tinning kit for sale, as well as a lot more food than is typical. The marked Bookstore contains more books and scrolls than is typical, including a Spellbook for the non-standard spell Lightning Bolt.

The storage rooms contain a lot of useful future tech, including additional blasters (1), guns (2), lightsabers (3), digging tools (4), hyposprays and ampules (5), oilskin sacks and a bag of holding (6), and bullet fabbers (7).

The fall of the Last Bastion

Welcome to the end of the world! Enemies on the Anachrononaut home level will home in on the quest leader, Sara the Last Oracle, and attempt to kill her. New enemies spawn around the downstair, and so will have to march across the length of the level to reach Sara. Should she die before granting quest access to the player, you will be unable to retrieve the Annulus and consequently unable to achieve a full-scoring ascension.

A random maze is overlaid onto this level, resulting in an enclosed maze at the south end of the level, contrasting with the wide-open north end.

  • Some plasteel armor pieces
  • 2 stacks of power packs
  • 1 sensor pack
  • 15 stacks of random hypospray ampules
  • 1 tinning kit
  • 3 R'lyehian faceplate
  • 1 (4x recharged) arm blaster
  • 2 hand blasters
  • 2 cutting lasers
  • 1 raygun
  • Other guns, including a heavy machine gun, a rocket launcher and ammo, and two sniper rifles
  • 26 random items

The Annulus is placed randomly on the level, though never in the same square as one of the elder brains. Since it is placed last, it will be visible on top of any pile it lands on, and can therefore be found using object detection.

Note that the Elder Brains are simply regular (if tough) enemies, there is no quest nemesis in the Anachrononaut quest.
