A key is an item found in the Gnome Village Dungeon, which is very difficult to distinguish from A key (Waterfall Dungeon) . It can be found in a crate in the storeroom to the north east of the dungeon entrance. It opens the door to the cell in which Golrie is contained, found north west of the dungeon entrance. This makes it easy to pick up the key when needed and so there is little advantage in keeping it in the bank. Upon finding it, a player will receive the message "You found a large key". It cannot be stored on a Steel key ring.
After Roving Elves, Golrie has traded places with the hobgoblins. He is no longer located behind a locked door. As such, a player should no longer need the key if they wish to retrieve Glarial's pebble.
