The Nighon Route

To save on travel time, our heroes

Sir Lancelot, human Knight
Archimedes, human Thief
Guinevere, dwarven Cleric
Morgan le Fay, elven Sorcerer,

once arrived in Harmondale, start by taking a peek in their castle. But instead of cleaning it out forthwith they first take a short trip by coach to Erathia, making the land available to Town Portals. There they hire a pathfinder and buy a Town Portal scroll to take them back inside Castle Harmondale.
After speaking with the Dwarf King, they pass through the Nighon Tunnels and Mount Thunderfist to Nighon, the land of the Warlocks, adding it to their Town Portal destinations. There they hire a gatemaster, who portals them back to Erathia, where they take the coach to Bracada.
Once the seven dwarves are rescued, the gatemaster returns them to the central fountain of Nighon, and the dangerous journey is made a second time.
Thus, they save a long walk back from Bracada to the Barrow Downs, gaining almost an entire day.

The same manner was chosen for the Light Walkthru, but since they are trying to set a new record, our heroes will cut a few corners, such as buying a seashell instead of fighting the dragonflies for it, and ignoring treasure.
