Wine Merchant's Basement

You and your friends gather at the end of the day in the local inn. The evening is uneventfull, untill you run out of wine and go get some from the wine merchant's basement...


This dungeon features an engaging storyline with unexpected twists and turns. It contains 8(+) levels to explore filled with puzzles and monsters that try to stop you.

Be sure to look for hidden switches and secret doors, because you will need all the help you can get in the epic fight at the end of the storyline.

It is possible to complete this dungeon within 2 hours, but take your time, explore and enjoy the story.

Give this dungeon a try and don't forget to rate it when you're done.

Warning: Don't bother making or importing a party, since the characters are pre-set because of the story.


This is my first ever mod-project. If you come across a bug, suggest an improvement or want more info about this dungeon, please leave a message at the steam or grimrock forums.

A big thanks to the great Grimrock community, especially: 'Adrageron', 'Komag', 'Bazzietuk' and 'Hey, boots!'!

Also thanks to 'Solitary Drake' for using my mod in his youtube channel, despite some bugs (which almost all have been resolved). Be sure to check out his channel!

An finally thanks to 'Almost Human' for the great game and editor, 'John Wordsworth' for the Grimrock Model Toolkit, and 'Imageline' for FL Studio to make the music.

Thanks, glad you liked it! If you liked this mod, be sure to try "The Awakening of Taarnab".
It has a nice story, lots of new puzzles too!

Really enjoyed the dungeon. The puzzles were well designed. My favorite being the "Gaze avoiding" puzzle. The story was pretty good and the difficulty was appropriate.

Shocked that the wine was actually included in the mod as an easter egg!

Just finished it, congratulation to the author it was a great experience and a nice story. Not too easy and not to hard, the puzzles are just fine for me, maybe a little more of creatures would have been appreciate. Anyway I highly recommand this mod and i'll try your others mods with pleasure

Hope you don't mind, if I just put the link here. :)
And I'll be sure to check the awakening of taarnab probably this weekend. :) Thanks for the tip.

Sure, no problem at all. Don't hesitate to post it and send me a link.

If you finished this mod and liked it, be sure to give "the awakening of taarnab" a go, another mod I made. :)

Yeah, I definitely enjoyed the story. Actually, i enjoyed it so much I turned it into fanfiction. :D Hope that's okay with you? I made sure to put your name in the disclaimer.

I didn't know it was possible, thanks for the heads up.

But I don't think you'll break anything, maybe the fights will be a bit easier. This mod is a lot about the story, and you can enjoy it at any level. Have fun!

I actually think it's a glitch of sorts, because I accidentally imported a party before I remembered that this had predetermined characters and I already started the game. And well, the party I imported had unasigned skill points and I think that those carried over to the mod...
Is that even possible?

I've had other complain that malbona was too hard, needing lots of attempts. Guess you're good at analysing what happens around you (or just very lucky :) )

It took me less than a minute to defeat Malbona in the boss fight. Is that just me or did it happen to anyone else?
