But was beside himself with rage after he acquired a magical amulet of immense power, which was stolen from him by his the evil arch mage Werdna. Werdna, not really sure about the way he can use the amulet, by mistake causes an earthquake, which makes dungeon go ten-level down Trebor's castle. Not to look like a fool, Werdna declares that dungeon is the new lair for him and his monster hordes.
