Go west, then north, and avoid the fight. Enter the village,
and play with the pump handle. Recruit Kudseac, pick up his
possessions, then kill him.
Visit the two inns to recruit four characters (preferable :
Eliandr, Zeloran, Fandhir and any warrior). Buy a sword, a
bow and some arrows from the armourer and some food from the
shopkeeper so you can recover your physical strength after
Go to the harbour (S-SW), and force a passage: take prisoner
and hand over to the village chief who then tells you what
your mission is. Return to the starting point. Kill the three
thieves, find the woman, and pick up the pendant. If your
strength is a bit low, eat some food, then return to the
village to recruit and to buy helmets and shields.
Go as far east into the forest as you can, then go north to
pick up the black and white mushrooms. Go to the extreme
north, pick up the dandelions, then fight the wasps. Enter
the forest clearing on the south side, and kill the orcs. For
the chief orc, you need to use as many arrows as possible.
Pick up the necklace.
Return to the village, hand the necklace to the chief, then
recover the boat. Eat, sleep, buy arrows, arms and food. Go
to the harbour, select the town landing-stage.
Tip: When you travel trough the town, write down every shop
you encounter and all the prices for every armour, helmets,
weapons, shields... Don't buy anything. When you've got the
whole city on paper, and enough money, then buy the most
expensive helm, shield, weapon, armour... for everybody of
your team. So you avoid wasting your money when you discover
a better item than the previous shop got for you.
Tip: After fighting, always share the money that you pickup,
between your team members. Each member will be happy!
Go right through the town to the library at the extreme
northeast. Pick up the fortress parchment, and kill as many
enemies as possible (to gain money and experience). Buy food

Follow the wall on the right, trying to keep moving east all
the time. Fight with skeletons, then go through the south

end, and the skull in the cul-de-sac to the east. Leave the
passage, continue east, then go south. In the large room, go
to the extreme south-east, then south, east, and then into
the corridor to the north. Activate the two handles on the
right and left walls. Continue north into the passage, and
follow the corridor into the large room. Activate the handle
on the wall to the north. Leave the passage again, go to the

because big scraps are coming. Buy two monk's habits and five
fur coats from the clothes shop (not far from the harbour, in
the road leading to a small square to the north).
Go to the library, examine the parchment on potions, then go
west to the bank. Enter the street, and kill all of the
guards in one go(!) using the arrows and spells. Take the
door opposite, pick up(steal!!) 100,000 po. and deposit
10,000 of them in the bank on the opposite.
Go shopping: buy a magpie, a monkey, an eagle and a parrot
from the pet shop on the extreme south-east of the town.
Opposite is a super-armourer if you got the money... Go to
the south, then buy five ropes from the shopkeeper. Move
west, buy potions for the "troublesome priest" HUMBOLG spell
and "ent reviver" JABLOU spell. Continue to the west, and at
the next three crossroads go north, then west, then first
east. Kill the giant guard, which is a difficult task, then
regain strength because there are more fights to come.
Enter the "Blue Velvet" nightclub (only open at night), and
you are thrown in prison. Release the magpie through the
bars, pick up the key and open the cell. Put on five monk's
habits. In the fortress enter the passage between midnight
and 4am., pass the monk, and enter the sacrifice.
Recover the prison key from the monk's belt, then leave the
passage again. Find the invisible wall (where one of the
characters should notice a draught) and cross it. Leave the
prison, fight with the guards. For the next step you need at
least 10.000po. and an iron shield, if you have them, take

the mountain parchment. Return to the extreme west along the
coast, and when you find the standing stones continue to the
west end. Pick up the relic at the foot of the standing
stone. When Golem wakes up, kill him - remember though, most
spells won't work on him - then turn round and fight Golem a
second time. Return to the harbour. Select the mountains,
take the landing stage to the south.
In the mountains you must put on the fur coats. Take off the
armour, and attach the ropes to avoid falling. Move east,
pick up the cauldron from the snow, then set off in the

precipice. Go into the mountains, find a Rhinoceros, kill it

if you pass other invisible passages at the end of the maze.
Follow the corridor. In the east kill the lion-guard. At the
eastern end, click the prison key in the lock and all the
cells open. Turn around and in the first cell to the right
you can find treasures behind an invisible wall. In one of
the cells is a blind girl who you must recruit, so you must
dismiss either the archer or warrior (dont forget to take his
possession). In the second cell to the south, starting from
the west, is a secret passage through an invisible wall.
