     1. Introduction
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Hi, and welcome to my FAQ for 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone', known
    as the Sorcerer's Stone in the USA. Unlike most other Harry Potter titles, this
    one isn't just an adventure game. Instead, it plays like an RPG, and utilised
    turn based combat, levelling up, and equipping items. It's a pretty fun game
    to play, and isn't that hard, This is my walkthrough, and I hope you enjoy it.
    
    As usual, if you've got any comments, anything to add, or if you think I've
    missed anything out, you can email me using my email address, found in the
    conclusion of this FAQ...

      --- DIAGON ALLEY ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  After watching the introduction, you
    '-----------------------------------'  will arrive at Diagon Alley with Hagrid.
     |  None                           |   Speak to him, and he will disappear
     '---------------------------------'   through the door leading to Ollivander's
                                           Wand Makers. Get used to the controls
    for a moment, then follow him through the door.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      --- OLLIVANDER'S WAND MAKERS ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  You will by introducted to Mr Ollivander
    '-----------------------------------'  by Hagrid, who will tell you to meet
     |  Harry's Wand ............ ___  |   him in Gringott's Lobby and leaves. Go
     '---------------------------------'   up to Mr Ollivander to start a cutscene.
                                           Eventually, Harry will get his new
    wand. There's nothing new to do here, so go back out of the door you just went
    through, to Diagon Alley.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      --- DIAGON ALLEY ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  A boy will walk up to you and offer to
    '-----------------------------------'  give you some Famous Witches and Wizards
     |  Wizard Card Deck ........ ___  |   cards. Select the deck you'd like to
     |  Folio Magi .............. ___  |   take and the boy will then give you a
     |  Folio Triplicus ......... ___  |   Folio Magi and a Folio Triplicus.
     |  Card Combination ........ ___  |   Finally, he will give you two card
     |  Card Combination ........ ___  |   combinations and four wizard cards
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   before wandering off. Head right, and
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   go up into the passageway to the right
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   of Ollivander's. Walk into one of the
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   sparkling blue things to enter a
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   magical encounter, or battle.
     '---------------------------------'
                                           Press A to access your list of spells
    and select the one you'd like to use. The brown rats that are found in this
    alley are weak against your Vermillios Uno spell. Winning battles will give
    you money, experience, and occasionally items. If you get low on health or 
    action points, go down to the row of shops below Ollivander's and enter the
    first one. This is the healing shop, and the woman behind the counter will
    replenish your HP and AP at no cost. Eventually you will gain a new level.
    You will now have higher stats and more HP and AP. Right up at the top of the
    alley, examine the two crates on the left to recieve another wizard card.
    
    Keep on battling the rats until you are at least level three or four then enter
    the large white building to the right of Diagon Alley. This is Gringott's
    Wizarding bank. Make sure you have full health before continuing beyond this
    point.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      --- GRINGOTT'S WIZARDING BANK ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  Go straight up to the end of the hall  
    '-----------------------------------'  and examine the empty chair on the right
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   hand side before talking to Hagrid. He
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   will lead you through a door, and Harry
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   will fall over. When you wake up, go
     |  850 Sickles ............. ___  |   as far left as you can, then straight
     |  School Supply List ...... ___  |   up. Examine a hole in the wall for a
     |  Card Combination ........ ___  |   card then take the next path up. Follow
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   the path up as far as you go, then take
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   the thin path up again. Keep going up,
     '---------------------------------'   and very soon, Harry will enter a new
                                           area. Head right, then up. Examine the
    hole in the wall for yet another Wizard card. Take the right, and follow it to
    another hole in the wall. When you reach this point, go straight up and you
    will come across an extra large magical encounter. This is the first boss of
    the game. If your stamina isn't full, eat a pumpkin pastie (from the items
    menu) to replenish 15HP and enter the battle.
    
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
     |  BOSS BATTLE  -  GIANT RAT                              Difficulty - 1/5  |
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
     | For your first boss battle, it's pretty hard unless you levelled up lots  |
     | earlier. As you should know by now, rats are weak against Vermillious     |
     | spells. Use Vermillious Uno (or Duo, if you've unlocked it) on the giant  |
     | rat. Four hits with Vermillious will send it screaming and you can easily |
     | defeat the two small brown rats. If you've got no AP left, then two hits  |
     | with Flipendo Uno will finish them.                                       |
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
    Finish your journey up the passage and turn left. Speak to Hagrid to open your
    vault. You will recieve 850 Sickles, and the school supply list. Walk over to
    the right wall and press A to grab a new card combination. Go down to the door
    once you've finished looking around to exit the vault.
    
    Head left and follow the passage down to it's end. Go right and up the next
    one. Keep going right then take the last downward passage before you reach the
    end. There's another hole in the wall containing a Wizard Card. Go down and
    then head left. It's a good idea to get some levelling up done here, so battle
    as many bats and rats as you can. Once you've reached the end, go down then
    take the first right. Follow the passage for a Wizard card. Go down, right,
    right, and down, then go left and down once more. Go through the door to get
    back into the Gringott's Entrance Hall. Go straight through the hall and out
    into the open air of Diagon Alley.

      --- DIAGON ALLEY ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  Now you must buy all of your school
    '-----------------------------------'  equipment. Head past Ollivander's and
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   the shop with the broomstick on it and
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   the boy that spoke to you earlier will
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   mention that there could be a card in
     |  Potion Kit Bag .......... ___  |   the nearby barrel *hint,hint*. Go into
     |  5 Sickles ............... ___  |   the owl shop, examine the owl, and get
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   another card. In the next shop, a card
     |  Cauldron ................ ___  |   is concealed behind some of the vials.
     |  Plain Work Rober ........ ___  |   speak to the man and buy the potion kit
     |  Winter Cloak ............ ___  |   bag.
     |  Dragonskin Gloves ....... ___  |
     |  Pointed Hat ............. ___  |   Exit the shop and examine all the
     |  Plain Boots ............. ___  |   cauldrons for 5 sickles. Enter the shop,
     |  Pack of Name Tags ....... ___  |   examine the cauldrons, and buy a
     |  Wigenweld Potion ........ ___  |   cauldron. Which one you get is up to
     |  School Books ............ ___  |   you, but I'd take the collapsable one,
     |  Hedwig the Owl .......... ___  |   seeing as it's cheaper. Go back all the
     '---------------------------------'   way past Ollivander's and go down past
                                           the healing shop. The second shop along
    is Gambol and Japes and if you'd like you can spend some coins on Chocolate
    Frogs, as each one contains a Wizard Card. If you need any more money, take
    part in more battles. Enter the next shop along to buy your school robes.
    
    A boy will speak to you then leave. Buy three plain work robes, one winter
    cloak, Dragonskin gloves, a hat, boots, and a pack of name tags. There is
    nothing else to do in here, so leave the shop. Equip all of the clothes you've
    bought using the Equip screen in the pause menu, then along to Flourish and
    Bott's Bookshop. Before you go in, examine the wooden crate for a Wiggenweld
    potion. Speak to the man to get your first year books, then trace your steps
    back to Hagrid outside Gringott's. Hagrid will give you Hedwig the Owl as a
    present.

      --- PLATFORM 9 3/4 ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  Go all the way over to the wooden 
    '-----------------------------------'  plank and use it to cross the first
     |  None                           |   track. Go all the way along to the right
     '---------------------------------'   and speak to the second person from the
                                           left in the large group of people.
    A guard will shout out that the train will be leaving in a couple of minutes.
    Direct Harry behind the group of people and onto the Hogwart's Express.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      --- THE HOGWART'S EXPRESS ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  You start out in the foremost carriage.
    '-----------------------------------'  Walk along the entire corridor until you
     |  Chocolate Frogs ......... ___  |   reach the final compartment. Harry will
     |  Card Combination ........ ___  |   sit down and you will be introduced to
     '---------------------------------'   Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
                                           You will learn a new spell, Verdmillious
    Uno. A woman will arrive with a tray of sweets. Buy a couple of chocolate
    frogs and sit back down opposite Ron. You will now enter a boss battle with the
    boy you saw in the shop where you bought your robes in Diagon Alley.
    
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
     |  BOSS BATTLE  -  DRACO MALFOY                           Difficulty - 1/5  |
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
     | The spell Hermione just taught you will come in handy here. Just keep     |
     | casting Verdmillious Uno on Malfoy. Should your AP points reach zero, use |
     | the Wiggenweld potion you found earlier. He will cast Vermillious Uno on  |
     | you, so watch out as it does a lot of damage. Eat pumpkin pasties to      |
     | replenish your health. Once he's defeated, he'll give you a new card      |
     | combination and leave.                                                    |
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
    There's not much to do now except wait a couple of minutes for the train to
    reach Hogwarts. You can sit tight and wait, or you can talk to some of the
    other students on the train. Eventually, you will reach Hogwarts.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      --- THE GREAT LAKE ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  Go back to the boarding ramp of the
    '-----------------------------------'  train and examine the wooden log for a
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   wizard card. Go back and speak to
     |  Wiggenweld Potion ....... ___  |   Hagrid to be healed then examine the
     '---------------------------------'   mound of sand next to him for a
                                           free Wiggenweld potion. Finally, walk
    down the jetty to board one of the small rowing boats.
    
    Now you must navigate your boat to the docks at the castle. All you have to
    worry about is avoiding the large monsters and steering the boat away from
    land. Try to avoid the big purple tentacles that stick out of the water. They
    are difficult to kill and they'll use up a lot of your AP. Navigate your boat
    under a bridge then keep going up. Vermillious Uno is the most effective spell
    to use against dragonflies, so keep that in mind. Navigate through the two
    rocks and under a second bridge. In this area, try to keep quite far left.
    There will be a large purple tentacle blocking the way to the jetty so take it
    out in a magical encounter. Sail right up to the beach and you will be led by
    Hagrid into the castle dungeons.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      --- HOGWARTS CASTLE DUNGEONS ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  Just like in Gringott's Bank, Harry is
    '-----------------------------------'  left behind on his own in a dungeon.
     |  Card Combination ........ ___  |   First off, go up, then right, and take
     |  Card Combination ........ ___  |   the second passage up. At the top of the
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   passage, examine the hole in the wall
     |  Pepper-up Potion ........ ___  |   for a card combination. Go down the
     '---------------------------------'   right hand side of the passage and 
                                           follow it. Go up the stairs to reach
    the next dungeon floor up.
    
    Go all the way along to the left of the tunnel then go all the way to the
    bottom. Look at the wall to get another new card combination. Now take the
    first right and follow it all the way along to the next set of stairs. You are
    now at the final dungeon level and the large blue mist is the next boss.
    Make sure you are at least level six before attempting to beat this boss.
    
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
     |  BOSS BATTLE  -  KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR               Difficulty - 3/5  |
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
     | The best spell to use here is Flipendo Uno or Duo. Simply hit it          |
     | repeatedly and it will flee. I've listed this boss as quite difficult to  |
     | defeat as his attacks are incredibly powerful. He's not got that much     |
     | health, but you've got to watch that your own doesn't get too low. If it  |
     | does, then take a Wiggenweld potion. Sometimes if you defeat him, you     |
     | get a Wizard Card but that isn't always the case.                         |
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
    Go up the small steps then take a left for a Wizard card and a right for a free
    Pepper-up potion. When you're done, walk up the final set of steps to enter
    Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      --- HOGWARTS ENTRANCE HALL ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  Nothing to do here yet. Walk through the
    '-----------------------------------'  door that Professor McGonagall just led
     |  None                           |   Ron and the rest of the first year
     '---------------------------------'   students.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      --- HOGWARTS GREAT HALL ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  After being sorted, walk down to the
    '-----------------------------------'  bottom right corner of the hall, and
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   speak with the Gryffindor ghost, Nearly
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   Headless Nick. Harry will sit next to
     '---------------------------------'   Hermione and soon Ron will join the
                                           table. Now Professor Dumbledore makes a
    speech and you wil have to find the Gryffindor Common Room. Go up and examine
    the Sorting Hat stool for a card, then go behind the staff table and through
    the door. Examine the middle portrait in the middle of the room for another
    card. Go back to the Great Hall and out the door into the entrance hall. Climb
    the Grand Staircase to the first floor corridor. Before proceeding, you will be
    warned about the resident poltergeist, Peeves.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      --- FIRST FLOOR CORRIDOR ---
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  There are 157 sickles in a box down the
    '-----------------------------------'  left hand side of the corridor, and a
     |  157 Sickles ............. ___  |   wizard card in the left arm of the
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   Jester statue near the bottom of the
     '---------------------------------'   corridor. Go up any one of the two
                                           stairs to continue.

    .-----------------------------------.
    | Item Checklist                    |  Behind the bottom statue of a Griffin
    '-----------------------------------'  is a cauldron cake. The other Griffin
     |  Cauldron Cake ........... ___  |   statue conceals a secret passage up to

    climb to the fifth floor. Make sure you are at least level 13 or so and that
    your health is as high as possible (drink a Wiggenweld Potion) and approach the
    television in the top right hand corner of the room. Press the A button when
    you're near the T.V. and lo and behold, a secret passageway, you shall enter.
    Check your stats, save your game, and walk into the giant magical encounter.

     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
     | The most effective spell you can use here is Vermillious Duo (8AP). It'll |
     | cause around 36-37 damage each turn. Make sure your Stamina and AP don't  |
     | get too low (if they do, take a Wiggenweld Potion or a Pepper-up Potion). |
     | Other than that, this boss is one of the easiest in the game.             |
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
    Go to your item menu and use the curse book to remove Peeves's curse. Another
    thing you should do is equip the belt you got from defeating the boss. It
    increases most of your stats by quite a large amount, so you might as well
    make use of it. You will learn a new spell: Mucus Ad Nauseum. Leave the secret
    passageway by the door to the north, leave the classroom, go down to the exit
    you took from the library last time, and go back over to speak with Madam
    Pince. Before leaving the library, there's a new spell you'll need later that's
    hidden in the shelves. Go back up to where Filch guards the restricted section
    of the library, then go right. Just before the wall, enter a small dead end and
    examine the bookcase. You'll learn Locomotor Wibbly. Now leave the library by
    going all the way to the left, climbing the stairs and going through the door.
    After speaking with Professor Quirrel again, leave his class and go all the way
    out to the castle grounds.

                                           through the trees, avoiding the little
    spikey green leaves that are randomly spread out in front of you. Use up and
    down on the directional pad to dodge them, use left to slow down, and use
    right to speed up. Eventually, if you go fast enough, you'll catch up with
    Malfoy. Reaching him will complete the minigame. Touching a leaf will slow you
    down slightly. Back on ground level, speak to Madam Hooch again and you'll be
    allowed to chase the owl one more time. Doing this will unlock a new card
    combination from the Deulling club on the fifth floor.
    
    Go back up to the castle, and do some levelling up on your way there. Just
    before the door to the castle, in the really tall grasss, there are dried
    nettles to be found.

    | Item Checklist                    |  Up at the other end of the hall, once 
    '-----------------------------------'  again, speak to the hooded stranger.
     |  Wizard Card ............. ___  |   You'll automatically follow the Goblin
     '---------------------------------'   to a vault near the entrance. Remember
                                           it's location in case you die and have
    to find the way back to this vault all by yourself. Inside the vault, walk into
    the boss fight.

     |  BOSS BATTLE  -  GIANT LIGHT BROWN RAT                  Difficulty - 4/5  |
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
     | First off, cast Locomotor Wibbly on the giant rat so you can focus on the |
     | two smaller ones. Verdmillious Duo is the more powerful spell to use      |
     | against these vermin. One or two hits each should immobilise. Heal        |
     | yourself and replenish your AP before attacking the big rat. Five or Six  |
     | hits with Incendio Uno will be enough to defeat it. If you run low on     |
     | Stamina, use a Wiggenweld Grand Potion.                                   |
     +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
    After defeating it, you'll get the famous Wizard Card, "Circe". Leave the
    Gringotts Bank and return outside to the stranger.
