Keening..something has gone terribly wrong!  [SOLVED]

When I equip Keening, and I am wearing Wraithgard, I die immediately.  I am using DNGDR.  Suggestions Please.

IIRC there are more then one Keening in GDR. The real Keening is much harder to find, and if you do not do it correctly you will not get out of the location where it rests. I do not remember what happens if you equip the wrong Keening as it was many many years ago during my first play through with GDR, but I must have figured something out after that because I never have done it again.
If you've found the correct Keening, and THAT is the one that is killing you I do not know what is happening. Otherwise I suggest back tracking, and trying to find the correct Keening.
There is a reason Darknut goes by that name, and an excursion through GDR gives great insight as to what that reason is.

Thanx.  I have a save before Odrosal so I guess i'll do a more thorough search.  Grrrrr.

Yeah, I just finish DNGDR a second time, and if you easily find Keening near the area where it is in vanilla, you have the wrong one, a little dialogue box should appear when you pick up the wrong one saying that it looks odd or something like that, btw Odrassal is not what it seems...

I recommend saving before picking up the real Keening when you do finally find it. Booby traps and all that good stuff.

I would amend that to say, I recommend saving whenever you go into a new area in DNGDR, you never know when your innocent searching will kill you.  :samurais:

Yes, I am coming to realize what a diabolical guy Darknut is.  My next foray into the Red Mountain will be much more cautious and methodical.  I hope I can finish before they let him out of Arkham and he releases V2.

I figured out what went terribly wrong  :chinscratch:    I thought I was smart  :floorlaugh:  Back when this problem first arose, I read in a forum about a 2nd Keening, and used the CC to get it :bones:   Am off to start a new game  :scarper:   READMES are important!!!
