The Shelley Crypt, located in Bowerstone Cemetery, is one of many caverns or caves in Albion. The area is only accessible once the Hero has completed the Love Hurts quest and chooses to purchase the Cemetery Mansion.

After purchasing the manor, the Hero is given a note and a set of keys from the Gravekeeper. The note explains that the keys are used to unlock the gate leading to Shelley Crypt, and that the Hero may explore the area thus unlocking the Cemetery Mansion quest.

Inside the tomb, the Hero can find one of the Divinity Gems, the Stone of Myr'Bregothil.

After looting the Stone of Myr'Bregothil, you walk back to the previous room with all the coffins. You can now walk up to the second floor where you find two breakable walls. Behind the right one is a Silver Key

Prior to reaching the prize though, the Hero must battle through numerous Hollow Men, and activate various Flit Switches to reveal invisible bridges to reach the end.

Near the end, the Hollow Man who narrates and attempts to ward you off asks for the player to give him the Stone of Myr'Bregothil. The player can then kill the Hollow Man or give him the stone, if you kill him several waves of hollow men attack the player.

The Hero can also hear the sound of a taunting Gargoyle somewhere within the depths of the crypt. The gargoyle is located at the end of the invisible bridges, if you look to the right. Near a torch is the gargoyle.


  • Shelley Crypt is also a reference to Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein, as during the Love Hurts quest Victor (ref. to Victor Frankenstein) tries to resurrect the dead with a machine.
