Korax and Basilisk combat
Talk to Korax. He will offer to be your friend. You can employ Korax the Ghoul in your party for a short while to act as a buffer while you take out the Basilisks with ranged weapons as he is immune to their gaze. However one decent fighter with either Protection from Petrification cast on them or a Potion of Mirrored Eyes can run across most of the map acting as a buffer while the rest of the party attacks from afar. You should carry some Stone to Flesh scrolls (purchased from a temple) in case someone fails their saving throws. Korax will eventually turn against you if he isn't killed by the Basilisks. Kill him.
KORAX: 175 exp
Talk to this Chaotic Evil Human Fighter and she will challenge your best male fighter to a duel. You need a male fighter type to accept the challenge. If your representative wins she will offer to join your party. If a female tries to attack her she will turn hostile and attack. You can recruit her or dismiss her. There is a good chance that she will battle Eldoth if they are both in the party.
RECRUITED: 300 exp, Two Handed Sword, Light Crossbow, Bolts (20), Helmet, Plate Mail Armor
Cast Stone to Flesh from a scroll on the statue. Talk to Tamah. Accept no reward. If you demand a reward she will invite you to raid her deserted house on South Beregost Road. The house is submerged and inaccessible.
