i cannot get past the big yellow archway upstairs behind the artifice welcomer. he says go right in if you have the key to your desire. i mentioned bonesteel to the elf in xenos and he said i must go quickly to artifice. the only anomaly i have is i said i would go peacefully to etceter crag mines to lady ransom and she gave me her note and her package. i still have both. everyone in the mine attacked me anyways and i had to kill them all. i could not talk to the bandit chief in there. i looted the black iron ore from his corpse. i did everything else and the elf in xenos said onward to artifice. i assume he is notus. at artifice, the welcomer said go right on in. now i am staring at a big archway thats blocked in bright yellow. it has 2 waterways, one on each side. no access. dont know what else to do. have done it all over and over.
