Chapter 2: This is related to finding one of the discs that chapter 2 revolves around. First you need to open the Eastern Temple. Playing for the Don that meant freeing the three treasure hunters from Harbour Town, finding the secret exit, and then have Fincher - the Don's right hand man - task you with finding the Eastern Temple, and subsequently, directing Olf and his treasure hunter brothers there. If you didn't, these quests would be cancelled when going into Chapter 2. I assume the temple is open no matter what you do when in Chapter 2. Traversing the first part of the Eastern Temple requires you to find 3 old busts to open a series of gates leading into the real temple:

Bust #1 - Dirk will give you this after you find a way out of the lower portions of Eastern Temple. Just drop into the trapdoor in the first room and follow from there.

Bust #2 - Where you find Danila, there is a sarcophagus in a burial chamber with a grate. The bust is inside.

Bust #3 - Bottom of the caves in a second burial chamber. Olf will give it to you reluctantly after saving him.

Once you have opened the passageway, make your way down into the underground city. When you exit out of the house you enter from, a Lizard Priest will attack you from across the road. Kill him to grab the disc, a teleport stone, and this achievement.
