@May Issaries ensure the Value of this FAQ and
 Lhankor Mhy vouch for its Truth.

Best viewed in 800x600 desktop-resolution, using Notepad without needing 
word-wrap.
Updated formatting.. all manually spaced, done with barbaric brutal 
efficiency.
Less than 79 characters per line guideline, oh please don't messed it 
up again.

Interactive story-telling saga and resource-management sim at its best. 
Basically, a modern-incarnation of "Choose your own adventure"!

"King of Dragon Pass (KoDP) is a computer game set in Glorantha 
(the world of
the games Hero Wars and RuneQuest). It combines interactive stories and 
resource
management to create an epic saga of conflict, magic, and community."

That description fits rightly about the game, direct from the mouth of 
the
publisher "A Sharp" (www.a-sharp.com/kodp/). They also keep a list of 
Frequently
Asked Questions on their website, along with a one-year tour demo, 
screen-shots,
art gallery and free music clips from the game.

King of Dragon Pass is available for both PC Windows (95 or later) and 
Macintosh
OS (PowerPC). The game was designed by David Dunham, Greg Stafford, and 
Robin D.
Laws; with additional design by Rob Heinsoo and Elise Bowditch.

Updates for the game can be obtained from A Sharp. As of this writing, 
the
current known-stable version of the game is 1.7(492). Check your game's 
version
number on the Game Controls [Save/Restore] screen. Download the current 
patch
from the update page (www.a-sharp.com/kodp/update/).

King of Dragon Pass combines elements of turn-based strategy games and 
adventure
games to create the feel of a Viking saga. It has strong story elements, 
but
economic management is important, and there's high replay value. It takes
advantage of a well-developed background. The result is a strategy game 
with a
personal feel.

Glorantha is a fictional world created by Greg Stafford more than two 
decades
ago. A vivid web of myth, tragedy and redemption, this is a world where 
mighty
gods and brave heroes fight in ancient conflict. Glorantha has been the 
setting
for several board and role-playing games. See the Glorantha website
(www.glorantha.com) for further details.

Section 10: Miscellaneous Contributions

-------------
Section 1: Following the Wyter

1.1: Help! I don't know how to form a tribe! What ever 
will I do?
  You must prove your worth. Seek the mandate of the gods. 
Read your manual.
  KC: Think like an Orlanthi. Aspire for greatness. When 
reputation hits top,
   the seer will come.

1.2: [Short Game] How long do I have to hold the king/queenship 
to win?
  Ten years. Consecutive years. Ten golden years. There are 
other conditions
  too. Read your manual.

1.3: [Long Game] I've done seven heroquests after forming a tribe, 
but nothing
  new is happening! What's wrong?
  It does take several years for the plot to work out. Maybe you 
just need to
  wait a few seasons. Also, have you done seven different heroquests? 
Your
  magician will tell you. You also must complete the heroquest for 
your chief
  god/ess (Orlanth and Aroka, Ernalda Feeds the Tribe or Elmal Guards 
the Stead).
  You will know your feet are on the path when a blind seer prophesies 
your
  destiny. The story may take decades to play out.
  KC: Destiny starts when the False Queen/Trade War/Telmori War events 
appears.

1.4: [Long Game] I've been told that my king must meet someone. How 
do I do
  this?
  Don't worry. Everything will happen in the fullness of Time. Keep 
reputation on top.

1.5: [Long Game] I've been told I must complete three tasks. 
What do I do?
  Save your game. Other than that, just wait for events to unfold.
  KC: Taming a dragon, favour of the Brass Man and mating with 
a mountain.


Section 2: Clan and Family

2.1: Who is..
     ..my clan chief:
       The person in the left-most slot with the torc glyph. Duh.

     ..my warleader:
       The ring-member with the highest combat score. 
Nobles who worship gods
       of war may usurp this position from a more qualified ring-member.

     ..my lawspeaker:
       Similarly, for custom. Lhankor Mhy worshippers may take this 
role in
       preference to those with better custom scores.

     ..my magician:
       The ring member with the highest magic score.

     ..my best poet:
       The ring member with the highest average of leadership and custom.

     ..my tribal king/queen:
       The noble with the mastery glyph (W) on their picture. 
You know, the clown
       you spent all those cows on at the last moot. They don't have 
to be on your
       ring, but it is a good idea. Your tribal leader can also be you chief.

2.2: How do I get new nobles?
  Wait for your old ones to die; youngsters will be along in a season or two.
  This usually only happens for deaths due to old age, but rare events can 
also
  have this effect. There is a treasure that can help. An event can bring 
you a
  babe with Heroic potential, another, several new ring members (and a lot of
  refugees). KC: Feed useless nobles to Cragspider or BeastValley/HorseSpawn.

2.3: How do I get a noble of a particular deity?
  You cannot. There will tend to be more worshipers devoted to your main
  god/ess, but nothing else affects the god's connection to their chosen. 
People
  are called to the gods, not the reverse. Divine choice is ineffible.
  KC: Building Temple to specific gods might help. Kill off the unwanted.

2.4: The farmers/weponthanes hate me! Help!
  Solve the immediate problem by gifting or feasting. In the longer term, 
you
  must change your behaviour. Farmers like peace and cows, weaponthanes 
like to
  prove their valour. No one likes losing battles. Some ancient treasures 
might
  help. Never give up Hope. Long lasting rifts can be healed by appealing 
to the
  gods, but have awful consequences if you fail.
  KC: If everything's done right, the clan might have grown too large.
   Splitting the clan is perfectly acceptable, in fact.. normally expected.

2.5: Kids, don't have enough! The clan is dying!
  Your casualty rate is higher than your growth rate. Stop fighting if 
possible,
  or fight more defensively. Recruit more farmers, take in strays, as 
they come
  your way. Seek the blessings of Orlanth's mother, his wife and of the 
gentle
  white lady. Sacrifice magic for children at sacred time. Add more 
mothers and
  healers to your ring.

2.6: Kids, got too many! The tula is bursting at the seams!
  You've just had a series of disasters that wiped out a lot of adults, 
right?
  Try to reduce any further casualties. Fight defensively for a few years. 
Make
  sure you can feed everyone. Barntar, Yinkin, Orlanth and Elmal can help, 
but
  Ernalda and Uralda are the most important. Wait for the kids to grow up.
  KC: Don't put magic to children on Sacred Time. Fyrdwomen and Orlanth's 
Rattle.

Section 3: Herds and Agriculture

3.1: I'm running out of food! Where shall I go? Whatever shall I do?
  Speak with a Silver Tongue and ask for food. Trade for Spare Grain. Take it
  with a red sword.
  Pray for the blessings of Ernalda and her helpmeets: Orlanth, Elmal, Odayla
  and, of course, her son Barntar. Make sure that you have enough cropland to
  feed everyone. In bad years, grow more barley, in good, more wheat, in
  desperation, more rye, but remember that the Earth wants to see all of her
  children grow. Trinkets and gee-gaws can help, but to prosper, you 
must travel
  the Hidden Ways under the Earth and meet all of her faces. Follow 
this advice
  and you'll never go hungry again!

3.2: I'm running out of cows! Without cattle we will scatter to the 
seven winds!
  What must we do?
  Orlanth bellows that violence is always an option. Your neighbours 
cows can be
  yours, if you are brave. If you are valourous and they are weak, 
they may
  offer you part of their herds for peace.
  Ernalda whispers that there is always another way. Buy cows, sacrifice for
  herd magic at sacred time, worship Uralda, beg favours, keep close the 
treasures.
  Elmal holds that a strong stead is always wise. Keep land clear, defences
  strong, the weponthanes on the boundaries and the fyrd large.
  If all else fails, walk the forbidding god-path of Uralda.

3.3: I'm running out of sheep! What to do?
  First, make sure that you are playing version 1.4 of the game or later.
  Earlier versions had slower sheep herd growth. If you are still having
  problems....
  You've got more temples than your clan can support. Reduce their number. 
Send
  your best traders out with large missions; they may trade for sheep on the
  side. Cattle raids often get sheep, particularly if you're low. Spend 
magic on
  herds. Put a good Uraldan on the ring. Never, ever slaughter sheep for food.

3.4: On the picture of the tula (shown at sacred time), when moving the mouse
  over the cows/sheep, the message that they are overcrowded and malnourished
  appeared. The herder on the ring said they have enough land. What's going 
on?
  It appears that your herder recommends only the bare minimum on which the
  herds can survive. For them to thrive, you need to have more pasturage. Many
  have found that at least half again what your herder tells you or even double
  the minimum pasture is necessary.


Section 4: Trade and Diplomacy

4.1: What are the exchange rates of commodities?
     The basic relationship appears to be:
      1 horse= 4 cows
      1 good= 1 cow*
      2 food= 1 cow
      *(however cows seem to be more desirable)

  Barganing skill greatly affects trading, as do several blessings. 
Heroquests
  can also make your cows more valuble or generally improve trade 
negotiations.
  Also, some clans are just better at barganing than others. You won't 
always be
  the better Trader.

4.2: What is a small/average/enormous gift to another clan?
  As a rule of thumb, 10 cows is miserly, 20 is customary, 30 cows is 
generous.
  Again, this is highly dependent on relative strengths of your clan and the
  other, your leader's skill, active blessings, treasures and heroquests.
  Treasures, even "worthless" ones, are highly thought of.

4.3: How big are gifts of magic and luck?
  For favours between clans, 3 points is traditional, 2 points is a minor 
gift,
  and 4 points is a big favour. For cults, this may be different. Also, cults
  may ask for repayment of many favours all at once, which can be quite
  expensive.

4.4: What is the base value for a treasure?
  Your traders will tell you 50 cows, but in reality, whatever the market 
will
  bear. You might have to pay hundreds of cows for some and get thirty when
  trying to sell.

4.5: I'm running out of silver!
  The most dependable source of goods are your crafters and market. Emphasize
  Issaries, increase the number of your trade routes. Increase the number of
  crafters to the maximum and make sure they are using all the resources 
you've
  found on your tula. Trade missions can help, but later in the game you 
do need
  to send a lot of them to make a difference. Horse trading seems to be
  particularly lucrative, but pick your trading partners carefully before you
  make the deal. Exploring can help a lot at the beginning of the game.
  Of course, goods can be had immediately from other tulas. Following the 
way of
  Orlanth, you might take from those with plenty in your times of want. 
Surely
  it is the duty of a Just and Generous king to make sure everyone shares 
equally!

4.6: How do I get more trade routes?
  Have an Issaries Trader on your ring. Build temples for Issaries, the bigger
  the better. Be on good relations with the potential partners. Leaving
  unexploited resources on your tula also can result in trade, but this 
may not
  be the most profitable course.

4.7: A clan hates my guts! What can I do?
  Well, that's what you get for raiding them last Storm. Many gifts may be
  necessary. Several blessings, particularly those of Issaries and Lhankor Mhy
  can help. The course of events often brings opportunities for reconcilliation.
  Be generous in victory. If you are desparate, remember that everyone listens
  to the Gods, especially Issaries and Chalana Arroy.
  A truly wicked clan would seize their land and force them to move.

4.8: Everyone hates my guts! Help!
  You can dig in and trust in the terrible and grim gods of death and hate or
  you can travel the path of the trader and the sage. In dire straits, 
remember
  the secret scar and the wisdom of the cows.

4.9: A Cult/Elder Race really hates my guts! What now?
  Listen to them when they come to warn you of your bad behaviour. Conduct
  yourself accordingly. Also, the talking god may be able to broker a truce.


Section 5: War

5.1: Neighbours keep sneaking off with my cows. What can I do?
  Build a watchtower. Clear more land. Make sure that your weaponthanes aren't
  slacking off. After missions, they will reduce their patrols, the lazy bums.
  Check the raid screen after every raid or mission to reset the patrol levels.

5.2: Raids always catch me unaware. How can I prepare?
  Form alliances with clans between yourself and the raiders. Often your allies
  will give you enough warning to summon your thanes and the full fyrd. Tribe
  members will also warn each other.

5.3: Can I seize land from a clan that is not a neighbour?
  No, but if you seize a neighbour's lands, you get new neighbours...


Section 6: Exploration

6.1: I keep losing parties! Help!
  From: "The Lonely Lozenge's tips for Dragon Pass":
        Send a Vingan or a Trader. They just stir up trouble during planting
        anyway. If you don't have any to spare, use an Odaylan.
        Travel during a nice time of year: Sea or Fire.
        Send a strong escort with your noble.
        Use Vinga's Pathfinder blessing.
        Travel slowly.
        Explore the map gradually. Do not venture far into fields unknown.
        Some areas of the map are more dangerous than others. Most of these are
        towards the edges of the map.
        A treasure can help.
        Listen to your godi: don't explore when the omens for travel are bad.

  Sometimes, even the biggest, most prepared parties go astray. I've lost a 
huge
  party exploring my own tula! Exploring is the second most dangerous thing a
  noble can do.

6.2: What should I explore?
  Your Tula. Bit by bit, push back the boundaries of what you know. Your tula,
  again. The gods will sometimes demand that you travel to specific
  destinations. Piety demands that show them honour. Also, your tula.
  Re-exploring areas, particularly named ones is often very fruitful. Finally,
  remember to explore your tula.


Section 7: Magic

7.1: What's a good size for a sacrifice?
  Listen to your ring! Your magician may have a suggestion or two.

7.2: I'm spending a lot on sacrifies but not getting any result. What's wrong?
  It helps if you have a devotee of the god on your ring. Also, sacrifice for
  mysteries during sacred time, if that's what you're after. As always, a
  treasure or two can help.
  All gods are not the same. Read their myths to know them. Bloodthirsty ones
  like, well, blood, but peaceful ones prefer shiny things. I'm personally
  convinced that the gray sage is a greedy old bugger too.

7.3: How do blessings work?
  Blessings take effect immediately. If you sacrifice for the blessing, it 
lasts
  five seasons, a full year. Also, a little brazier icon appears next to the
  blessing on the sacrifice screen as a reminder of the sacrifice.
  A temple blessing is permanent, as long as the structure is maintained.
  An active blessing glows blue on the clan rock on the appropriate screen.
  Also, the button to select an active blessing is grayed-out on the sacrifice
  screen.

7.4: How do I change the blessings given by my shrines and temples?
  Select the appropriate god/ess on the magic screen. Click on the box beside
  the blessing you wish to remove. The x in the box should vanish. Now, 
click on
  the blessing you want to have running. An x should appear in the box beside
  the new blessing. This does not count as an action. Note that you can 
only do
  this for blessings provided by shrines and temples. You cannot switch
  blessings for which you have sacrificed directly.

7.5: How does Maran Gor's blessing work?
  The terrible hag of the dark earth cares only about blood, not from 
whom it
  comes. The greater the numbers of your tribe or your enemies that die on 
your
  fields, the better your crops will be the next Earth season as long as
  Earthblood is active at the time of the battle. The blessing need not be
  active during the next Earth season.

7.6: I can't build a shrine to my favorite God! What's going on?
  First, make sure that you have sacrificed for mysteries. You cannot build
  unless your god-talkers know a blessing for each level of temple, i.e., 
for
  shrines, one blessing is needed, for temples, two, and for great temples,
  three.
  Next, check that you have enough trade goods. Shrines cost 10 goods, 
Temples
  50, Great Temples, 100. If you don't have the dosh, you don't get the 
build
  button.
  Finally, some Gods are better than other Gods. That is, many Gods only can
  have a shrine, some a temple and some a great temple.
  The list is:
      Shrine:Ancestors, Barntar, Maran Gor, Vinga
      Temple:Chalana Arroy, Odayla, Uralda, Urox
      Great Temple:Elmal, Ernalda, Humakt, Issaries, Lhankor Mhy, Orlanth

  Note that there are also some gods and spirits which can be found during 
play.
  These entities can only have a shrine built for them.

7.7: I can't build any more temples! I don't have enough worshippers. How 
do I
  solve this?
  Focus your worship. Choose the blessings you want and destroy or reduce 
the
  temples you don't need. Take in more clansfolk. Make allies, friends, and
  trading partners. Form a tribe.

7.8: I'm having trouble doing heroquests. What should I do?
  From "Learn HeroQuesting in just 21 Days!", Lhaura Lhemay, Whitewall Press,
  1215 A.S.:
        Follow the footsteps of your God. The old paths are the best.
        Myths have secrets and deeper secrets. Learn them both. Heroquesting
        with partial knowledge is for the desperate or foolhardy.
        A careful quester can minimize risk, particulary in combat. Be warned
        that this may reduce the effectiveness of the quest.
        Wait a couple of years. Questing too soon after your last attempt
        greatly reduces your chances. Your ring will tell you when it's safe.
        Choose your leader wisely. Match skills with activities in the quest.
        Magic is an important skill, but others are often critical for sucess.
        The default noble is not always best.
        Direct worshipers have the best chances. Remember that Vingans count 
as
        Orlanthi.
        Have lots of supporters. Questing with tribal support is much easier.
        Some treasures can help.

  However, even the best prepared will often go astray. Heroquesting is the 
most
  dangerous thing a person can do. Even if the quest is sucessful, your hero 
may
  be scarred beyond all healing (i.e. lose abilities).

7.9: One of my ring says that I've performed so many heroquests, but I know 
I've
  done many more. What gives?
  Your magician is counting the number of different heroquests you have done.
  Doing the same one over and over does not count for the victory conditions.
  Also, the count of heroquests resets to zero when you form a tribe and 
elect a
  king/queen.


Section 8: The Path of Imminent Mastery

Read past this point at your own peril! Spoilers Abound!
Some secrets mortals are not meant to know, and Arachne Solara intends to 
keep
it that way. Beware those who bring Gifts of bad knowledge.

8.1: What effects do the various traditional enemies have?
  You will always win luck and magic for defeating your traditional enemies.
  Making peace with them will be difficult and annoy your ancestors.

      Trolls:
         There are several families of Dark Men in Dragon Pass, which the 
game
      tracks just as it does the other clans. They are all your enemies. 
Also,
      there is one area of the map you should definitely avoid. Several
      treasures can greatly help you.
	KC: Advantage - Dark season raids for feeding Earthblood. Iron Spike.
    	 Disadvantage - One word.. Cragspider.

      Elves:
         The Aldryami are phantoms, never coming to grips with your forces. 
They
      are guerillas in the mists that wreath the Quivin. Thay can call on 
their
      father Flamal, parent of all green things, to devastate your harvests.
	KC: Advantage - Necklace of Axes for magic boon.       	
 	 Disadvantage - Ernalda HQ problems. Forest enroaching farm event.

      The Winter Tribe of Valind:
         Winter storms are fierce, but you can win luck fighting them. You 
also
      can get tribal magic by raiding during Dark Season, but 'ware lest ye
      fail. This is possibly the easiest choice for a beginner.
	KC: Advantage -  Raiding at Dark season and add to magic.      	
 	 Disadvantage -  Lose magic if failed on raiding at Dark season.

      Basmoli Beastmen:
         You will shortly find some unfriendly neighbours with some very
      powerful friends. They may look comical, but beware, beware the 
Deadly
      Ducks of Death! There is an area of the map you should stay away from.
	KC: Advantage - Won magic if successfully beaten beastfolks raid.      	
 	 Disadvantage - Ducks of Death. Ironhoof.

      Tada the Green:
         The nomads of eastern Prax will harry your steads, much like the
      horsepeople of the west. You can take the fight to them, but they have
      strong magic which can scour your tula and kill ring members. Towards 
the
      end of the long game, great help can come from humble beginnings.
	KC: Advantage - Raids by Praxian, add magic if won.      	
 	 Disadvantage - Can't hire Prax raiders.

      The Salty Sea:
         Floods, wiping out crops and drowning your people and herds will 
be a
      constant problem.
	KC: Advantage - Salmon Man. Chance to improve relations post floods.      	
 	 Disadvantage - Flooding of tula a bit costly.

8.2: What are the effects of our relationship with the Dragons?
  In play, this affects your dealings with draconic species: the dragonewts,
  thunderbeasts, wyrms, magisaurs and dream dragons. You win tribal magic by
  following the ways of your forebearers and may suffer for choosing 
different
  paths.

8.3: How big should our tula be?
  Choosing the smallest tula makes life difficult as the clan expands, but 
it is
  easiest to defend. The reverse is true of the larger tulas. The choice is 
not
  irrevocable; you can lose and gain land during play.

8.4: Which shrines should I build?
  This varies so widely with play style that it impossible to give one answer.
  However, most agree that building a Barntar shrine (with either of Vigour or
  Plowsong) is important. A shrine to Chalana Arroy is critical too, for 
either
  healing or curing, as the need arises. Finally, having at least a shrine to
  Uralda with Calf Blessing is also very important to long term survival.
  Later in the game, the fell gods of war and death and the talking gods will
  become very important.

8.5: OK, spoil me. Where should we explore first?
  It is probably best to vist the Quivin mountains first to the south-east of
  your tula (marked on the map as Mt. Quivin), and next the Dragonewt wilds a
  short distance into the unexplored area to the north-west. Your first 
visit to
  the utter west can also be very profitable but is extremely dangerous. 
Don't
  forget your own tula too.

8.6: What does that crazy reptile want with its questions about what we 
think is
  important?
  What happens after it leaves? The gift will eventually lead to an important
  choice. Think well on your answer to its question and you may be be 
mightily
  rewarded. The reptile is a magisaur by the way, not a 'newt.
  KC: From experience.. Defense works best.

8.7: What do all the treasures do? How do I find them all?
  The link (www.cyberus.ca/~hollebon/Treasure.html) seems to be gone. But 
I will
  post the list that I have, once I converted the html into a text file.
  One is treasures' description, the other is where and how to get the 
treasures.

Section 9: Extras

9.1: How can I see my tula's bounaries?
  On the exploration (map) screen, press 'm'.

9.2: Easter Eggs?
  On the first screen of the game, press 'o' (for Opal, the game's code name
  during development). This will appear to start the tutorial, but, in 
fact, is
  a different game.
  According to David Dunham, the producer, The pictures of the starting 
advisors
  are those of the development team, others are among the available 
leaders, and
  another makes an appearance within a few seasons.
  The Opal ring is (left to right):
        David Dunham
        Elise Bowditch
        Stefano Gaudiano
        Shawn Steele
        Brian Fogel
        Greg Stafford
        Stan LePard
  Robin D. Laws shows up in a season or two as a trader.

9.3: How do I make a screen shot? I'd like to frame a picture of my new 
King's
  Stead.
  Yes, you can satisfy your royal decorating urges.
  On a PC, press the 'Print Screen' key. A bitmap of the current screen 
will be
  copied to your clipboard, which you can paste into the windows Paint
  accessory.
  On a Mac, Command+Shift+Control+3 does the same thing, however,
  Command+Shift+3 (whole screen) or Command+Shift+4 (selected area) 
saves to a
  PICT file, which may be more useful.

9.4: What are the addresses of other KoDP web sites?
  The website of A Sharp is:
  http://www.a-sharp.com/kodp/
  
  Oliver Bernuetz's fan site:
  http://www.geocities.com/bernuetz/kodp/kodp.html
  and his great compilation of Glorantha stories:
  http://www.geocities.com/bernuetz/mything/contest.html
  Bryan Maloney's fan site:
  http://www.people.cornell.edu/pages/bjm10/KoDP/tula.html
  There are two forum for discussion of the game;
  Aaron Bubnick's Web-based forum:
  http://network54.com/Hide/Forum/48065
  
  and, of course, Jeff Kyer's mailing list at Yahoogroups:
  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/KingOfDragonPass/
  
  The world of Glorantha has hundreds of websites devoted to it. The main
  Issaries site for Glorantha is:
  http://www.glorantha.com/
  A good index of the fan sites is at:
  http://www.glorantha.com/kim/
  There is also an active (some would say hyper-active) Gloranthan mailing 
list.
  You can subscribe to it in digest form (highly recomended) by sending
  "subscribe glorantha-digest" in the body of a message
  to:majordomo@chaosium.com
  
  KentCave's KoDP's fans misc files repository:
  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/kayodeepeeans
  
  Worth mentioning links:
  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HeroWars/
  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Glorantha3D/

9.5: The CD is slow. How can I speed up the game?
  For Windows 95/98 systems: (Disk space needed: approx. 480MB)
        Do a full install of the game.
        Install any updates.
        Move the Opal and mt directories to the root of the drive you 
installed
        the game on.
        Move KODP4922.mxx and KODP4923.mxx from the root directory of the 
CD to
        the root of the hard drive.
        Rename the hard drive to KoDP (using that capilization). Under 
Win95/98,
        open the Drive Properties and change the Volume Label.
        Start the game either from the Start menu or the desktop icon (i.e. 
not
        from the CD autostart screen).
        You need the KoDP CD in the drive to start the game, but all the 
scenes
        will load from the hard drive rather than the CD.

  To uninstall the game, you will need to reverse this recipe, deleting 
the two
  .mxx files by hand and moving the Opal and mt directories back under 
the game
  directory.

Below are various tips and spoilers. "You" have been warned. Enjoy.

Relevant information will be added once I received it from the rest of you
folks, so keep it coming. By the way, feel free to start another FAQ, dealing
with same questions or specific section of the game, if you don't want to 
join
this one. I myself have a separate FAQ dealing with Treasure-seeking Quest, 
it
can be easily combined to this FAQ, but I just want to promote more folks to
KoDP, no matter how insignificant it might seems.

-----------
*Regarding exploration - from A Sharp
Depending on random setup, your clan's tula may be concave: shaped like a 
'C' or 'U'.
When the exploration '+' is placed at the center of your tula, it may not 
intersect
your land. You may need to reposition the '+' slightly to explore your tula.

*Regarding patches - from A Sharp
VERSION 1.7
Since the original 1.0 release, we found a few small bugs and typos. Version 
1.7
fixes these. We also improved some of the advice, and adjusted the difficulty 
of 
the Average and Hard games. We recommend updating to 1.7 for a more enjoyable 
game.

DO I NEED THE UPDATE?
If you're running an earlier version of King of Dragon Pass, you should 
install 
the 1.7 update. You can tell which version you're running by running the game 
and 
checking the version number in the Game Controls dialog. If it says "v1.6" or 
earlier then you should install the update.

If you don't have the disk space to install, you can continue to run from the 
CD, 
but you may experience small glitches in a few circumstances.

INSTALLATION
In order to install the update, you must first install the game to your hard 
disk.
This requires about 42 megabytes of free space. (You will still need to have 
the 
CD in the drive, but the game will run faster.)

To install the update, replace the files "scenes.dat" and "Opal.r32" with the 
copies in the update. "scenes.dat" goes into the "Opal" folder, and "Opal.r32" 
goes into the "mPlugins" folder inside the "mt" folder.

When you next run King of Dragon Pass, it should show "v1.7" in the Game 
Controls
dialog.

If you have any difficulties updating, e-mail us at .

WHAT'S FIXED?
Fixed in 1.2 update
Shortened description of Great Temples in Tula screen
Fixed repeat text in tribute scene, and fixed typo
