Taking the upstairs from the Dungeon of Ill-Regard in dNetHack's Lawful Quest leads to the forested Arcadia, where you find the Arcadian Fortress. The second Key of Law is carried by the unique golem Arsenal on the second floor of the fortress, while the third Key can be found at the top of the tower.

Mercenaries, soldier ants, and miscellaneous insects abound.

Arcadian Road

The levels of the Arcadian Road are connected by magic portals that are not initially visible, but are always located in the same (predictable) places.

The large tree-filled area is maze-walked, and the staircase down to the Dungeon is randomly placed somewhere on the level. The magic portal to the next level is located at the position marked. There are also eight soldier ants, sixteen random a, and eight random objects placed randomly on this level.

The forested areas, once again, are maze walked. There are twelve soldier ants, four random a, six soldiers and two sergeants placed randomly, as well as two platoons of soldiers (one sergeant and six soldiers) in each of the circles. In addition, there are two soldiers in the marked locations. The portals to the previous and next levels are marked as well.

Note that the entrance to the fortress is an open drawbridge. As usual, use caution when standing on or near it.

The portal to the previous level is marked. This level marks a fork in the quest, with two ways to reach the next level: a staircase at the right end, between the two barracks, and a ladder in the circular room at the bottom. The staircase leads to the second floor of the fortress, where you encounter Arsenal, while the ladder leads to the Arcadian Tower and ultimately to Oona.

Each of the six circular enclosures inside the entrance has a sergeant and three soldiers. There are also sixteen soldier ants placed randomly, and sixteen random items placed randomly.

The larger part of this level, accessed from the first floor by the stairway up, is a dead end, albeit the location of Arsenal and the Second Key of Law. To continue to the higher levels of the Arcadian Tower you will need to take the ladder up from the first floor, which will put you in the enclosure in the lower left.

In addition to the (filled) rooms, there are four soldiers and four soldier ants around the level. The antholes are full of soldier ants.
