Squatters' Refuge

Location

This location is accessed if you make The Squatter King angry, and then need his tools to make a protein analyser (directed by the Eurasian Arms Dealer). You can also find your way in through the Squatter King's Secret Entrance encounter in the Dockside Sewers.

This area is aboveground, indoors

There are two mostly distinct versions of this zone. If you kill the Squatter King, have the Problems on the Docks quest active, and wait a day, you can get the Refuge Transformed encounter and unlock a ghoul-infested version of this zone. Click here to jump to encounters for that version of the zone.

ghoul.jpg You hear a soft click far above you. In the next instant, you roll to the side and avoid the twisted shape falling down towards you from the rafters.

It lands on all fours, bobbing slightly to soak the impact, then rushes you with teeth bared.
Only if the Problems on the Docks quest hasn't been completed
ratking.jpg As you prowl through the warehouse, you're set upon by a swarm of rats. They charge towards you, gnashing their teeth.

It's incredibly unnatural behavior for rats, but you're a little busy at the moment for deeper investigation.
Eclipse.jpg Tentacle100.jpg x2 You hear a strange, echoing howl coming from far in the distance. The crates all around you seem to shake and crumble.

Great, twining masses of tentacles lash out towards you from the crumbling crates. The howling grows stronger, almost questioning, but you can't make out any words as the tentacles attack.
Only before getting the Refuge Transformed encounter?
Eclipse.jpg trashgolem.jpg As you make your way through the warehouse, a pile of crates collapses. The shards of faux wood twinkle like flipped coins, before coalescing into a humanoid shape.

It roars something that sounds kind of like "home" and rushes towards you.
Only before getting the Refuge Transformed encounter?
SquatterKing.jpg Your ears perk up as soft footsteps move behind you. Risking a glance, you can see the Squatter King moving into position behind you with a shining glassy knife. Only if you didn't kill him, high Reflexes
SquatterKing.jpg You hear a soft scraping behind you, followed by "alright, time to die."

You turn around to see the Squatter King, a strange glassy knife in his hand, waiting for you to make the first move.
After getting Back Stabbing King a couple times?

Only if the Problems on the Docks quest hasn't been completed
ghoul.jpg x2 You hear a fast-paced click, click, click close behind you, like something running. When you turn to look, it's actually two bent forms prowling behind you, almost jogging.

Each bears an identical empty, animal grin caked with blood.
Only after getting the Refuge Transformed encounter
GiantLarvae.jpg x2 As you wander through the strangely changed warehouse, a slab of meat near you quivers as though something is crawling inside of it. Two white maggots, each as large as an arm, tear out through the slab, showering the area with flecks of gore. Only after getting the Refuge Transformed encounter
Eclipse.jpg Tentacle100.jpg x2 GiantLarvae.jpg x2 You hear a strange, echoing howl coming from far in the distance. The building shakes, jerking the chains and slabs of meat around messily.

An inhuman face with three eyes pushes out from within one of the slabs. It explodes moments later into torrents of gore, maggots, and tentacles. Gah!
Only after getting the Refuge Transformed encounter?
