    1.1 - Weapons and Armour
    One of the main things people are unclear about in LORD is 
    how weapons and armour work. When you buy a weapon in
    King Arthur's Weapons, the weapon has a certain strength
    based on how much you paid for the weapon. The more 
    you payed, the harder the weapon hits. Here is the weapon 
    list, with costs-
    1. Stick                               200
    2. Dagger                            1,000
    3. Short Sword                       3,000
    4. Long Sword                       10,000
    5. Huge Axe                         30,000
    6. Bone Cruncher                   100,000
    7. Twin Swords                     150,000
    8. Power Axe                       200,000
    9. Able's Sword                    400,000
    10. Wan's Weapon                 1,000,000
    11. Spear of Gold                4,000,000
    12. Crystal Shard               10,000,000
    13. Nira's Teeth                40,000,000
    14. Blood Sword                  100,000,000
    15. Death Sword                  400,000,000
    If you decide to sell your weapon, you will get about half
    of the money you bought the weapon for.
    Armour works the same way, sort of. The more you spend, 
    the less hit points you get taken away from you. 
    1.2 Skill Classes
    In the game, you are always interested in a certain skills.
    The skills have certain advantages and disadvantages. Here 
    they are-
    Death Knight Skills- You are a member of the Death Knights,
    which can inflict twice as much damage as a regular warrior
    when you use your skills. To get the skills faster, pick 1 in
    the death knight dungeon on odd numbered days, and 2 on even
    numbered days
    Advantages - VERY POWERFUL
    Disadvantages - Takes a while to master, don't go to dungeon
    Mystical Skills - You were always interested in dabbling in the
    Mystical forces.
    Some skills are- Pinch real hard, Disappear, Heat Wave, Light
    Sheild, Shatter, and Mind Heal. To gain skills faster, this is the
    way to guess numbers. Guess 50, and then guess 25 either
    higher or lower (depending on what he says), then guess 12 
    more or less, then 6, then 3. That leaves you with 2 numbers.
    Now, instead of having a 1 percent chance to guess the number,
    you have a 50 percent chance of doing it.
    Advantages- More powerful than Death Knight at higher levels
    Disadvantages- Hard to kill people early in the game with the
    Theiving Skills- A member of the theives guild, you are 
    sometimes hated because of your job. But remember,  "Even 
    theives have honor"
    Advantages- Quick to master, powerful, able to rob bank.
    Disadvantages- Not very powerful.
    1.3 The Forest and the Inn
    The forest and inn are two of the most useful places in LORD. 
    Here are the benefits of each-
    1.31 The Forest
    Fairies- Bring you back to life, give you horses, and help you rob the
    Hammer Stone- Increases attack strength
    Old Man- Increases charm, as well as money.
    Old Witch- Free hit point for a gem
    Gems- Purchase things at the Inn, get more Theiving skills
    Dark Cloak Tavern- Gamble, Learn about Colors, Learn about your enemies
    (hehehehe) and change your skills.
    1.32 The Inn
    The Bartender- Buy elixers, attack enemies, change your name
    Seth Able- (one of the following)
         -One extra forest fight
         -Two extra forest fights
         -Three extra forest fights
         -Hit Points maxed out
         -One extra hit point
         -Extra charm point
         -Double Money in bank
    Flirting with Violet of Seth Able (depending on gender)
    You can gain exp. and possibly a spouse if you have over 
    100 charm when you ask them to marry you. It might
    not always be a smart idea to marry them, because 
    when (YES, WHEN) they divorce you you'll only have 50
    charm left. 
    Engaging in conversation always makes you more popular, and that may
    help you build alliances. 
    1.4 Advancing in Levels
    Advancing in levels is perhaps the single most important thing in LORD.
    Advancing to level 12 enables you to (S)earch and fight The Red Dragon
    in the forest. Always question your master in Turgon's Training center.
    If he says you don't need _____ more exp. than you can challenge him and
    hopefully defeat him to advance a level.
    2.0 Expert Tips
    2.1 The "JENNIE" Code     
    When you begin the game, check and see if you are in "high
    spirits" If you are, you can do the "JENNIE" trick. Here is how
    to do this. Go straight into the forest, and, before you touch 
    anything, type "JENNIE" and it will ask you to describe her.

                                  BY: Twinkie "The God Of Money"

    around with out having to kill people(which I enjoy very much). Here I
    have some basic cheats and tips to help better your L.O.R.D. Playing. I

    challenge. So sit back and enjoy the secrets of L.O.R.D. my young
    disciples. And may the power of Twinkie be with you. By the way I don't
    promise any of these codes will work although to my knowledge they all
    LONG LIVE SETH ABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    1. Jennie Codes (The good, the bad, and the really messed up)
    Do these following codes when your spirit is high. First type in Jennie
    as soon as you get into the Forest. Then type in one of the following
    BABE ------- You get 1 more Forest fight
    SEXY ------- You get 1 more User fight
    FOXY ------ You get 1 gem
    LADY ------ You get some Gold
    FAIR ------- You get excited 
    HOTT ------ You get energized
    NICE ------- Nothing happens of any worth
    STAR ------ Nothing happens of any worth
    UGLY ------ You get smacked down to 1 H.P.
    DUMB ----- Nothing really happens to you besides your character getting
    The Really Messed Up;
    DUNG ------ You get turned into a frog!
    2. The Usefulness of  the Fairy (And you thought that they were just for
    horses) Before using any of these next codes you have to catch  the
    fairy first.
    Fairy Heal;
    When you have a fairy and you are about to die in a fight, the fairy
    will come out and give some of your H.P. back to you.
    Fairies N' Robbing the bank (What did you think they did in there spare
    When you have a Fairy in your grasp bring it to the bank. Press number 2
    to let it go. It will pick the lock for you. Tadda instant money. But
    one catch you must be a Thief.
    Fairies to fight;
    In order to fight in the L.O.R.D. Arena (which is in other places) you
    must bring a fairy to trade.
    3. Misalliance (Stuff that just goes by its self because it don't belong
    any were else);
    Halloween story;
    Press the letter "S" at the first screen to get a story directly from
    the man, Seth Able.
    Old Lady Wants your gems (No this isn't a want add);
    In the forest when the Old Lady asks for a gem give it to her because
    she gives you an extra hit point for the gem.
    Save your money after you beat the dragon;
    All you have to do is go into the Dragon Palace (in Other Places) and
    put all your money in the Kings Treasury. Go beat the Dragon when you
    come back to the treasury all your money will still be there.
    Transvestites are sweeping L.O.R.D.;
    There are two ways to become the a different sex. Both happen at the
    temple in Dragon Palace. The first is if you light the orange candle you
    have a chance of  switching. The second is praying for tranquillity. 
    4. General Tips to win at L.O.R.D.;
    1. Always trade gems to the bartender for vitality, which in English
    means defense.
    2. Always have your armor 1 level above your weapons. Remeber the best
    offense is a great defense.
    3. Before you go up to the next level at Turgon's Warrior training see
    if there is any one you can kill who is one level lower then you because
    after you rise a level you will not be able to fight him.
    4. You can only use your skills on a player that is higher then you and
    in the forest.
    5. Thanks to:
    Seth Able for making LORD ,the coolest door game on the planet.
