Find the location marked as Corpse of Magister Atusa. When you come here for the first time, you will witness the meeting of Magister Atusa with Dallis, the Hammer and Bishop Alexandar, which will end with the death of the first of them.

We witnessed the death of a Magister named Atusa at the hands of Dallis, the right hand of the Divine Order's leader, Bishop Alexandar. It seems that there is dissent in the ranks of the Order. Perhaps this is something we can exploit in order to escape.

You need an elf in your party, ie. Sebille. You should eat Atusa's Leg, you can loot it from Atusa's corpse.

After part of Magister Atusa was eaten, we discovered that she wanted to help someone named Verdas to escape from Fort Joy. Perhaps Atusa had accomplices. Perhaps we will be able to escape with their help.

Enter the Fort Joy Ghetto.

We have arrived in Fort Joy's Sourcerer ghetto. Perhaps some people around here will know of a way to escape. We should look around.

4. Yarrow Reward

After we helped to find her father, Magister Yarrow gave us a key that lets us enter the main structure of the Fort. This will no doubt come in use during our efforts to escape.

He told us of a secret switch hidden on shrine to the Divine in the main courtyard of Fort Joy. The switch will reveal a hatch that leads to the dungeons. From there, we should seek out the Phylactery Room on the main castle floor. Withermoore's Soul Jar ought to be in this room - likely hidden in some way.
