Hi Jean and Alice and Syd,
You have to beat Kiya to be able to get rank #1.
After that you are allowed in the temple, just go to the rank keeper and you'll be told. You can then proceed whenever you are ready.
You go in and talk to the Black Bishop to get the quest to help him kill the goddess and be allowed in the prison to talk to the prisoner about the Staff of Power, he's the only one that can allow you to open the cave-secret mummers and all.
The staff has to be picked up and placed in inventory, it is a stick with a circular end to it.
How were you able to get into the cave without talking to the prisoner?
Go ahead and meet Kiya at the O.K. corral..er, cyrpt I mean, and fight for your DK..it's a little on the funny side.
The only thing to be concerned with is this:
Once you open the stairwell in the temple and descend down the stairs, you cannot go back up.
So finish everything else you want to finish first. This means all the areas above ground, check your maps.
Yes, the wastelands is where you shall be sent.
You can go to the BF's anytime-that is not the story line, so when you pick up BF key #6 (inside the temple, down the stairwell), go on to BF's and finish them up.
I don't know if there is a key for BF 5, I suppose there is, I just never tried to find it I guess.
Those teleporter quests: you bounce around and cover a little more ground each time, finally the whole area is covered and the quest solved for that one. Then you have to replace the stone in the teleporter-I think an imp or something gives you the stone or gem.
