    I. Introduction
    
      I.A. Walkthrough/FAQ Introduction
           As I was replaying Swords and Serpents one day, I came to a point in the
         game that I had forgotten how to get past. So I did what many gamers do today
         and looked online for a walkthrough. Much to my annoyance I found only one,
         and that one was only 25% complete! So I did what any hardcore gamer would
         do and set about righting this wrong.
           This walkthrough in its current form will take you through the game step-
         by-step. This guide is not complete (although close), however, as there is
         much information which I would like to have added but lack the vigor. Such
         additions entail a more detailed beastiary, specific spell damage, hit
         percentage determination, etc. etc.
           If you have any information not found here and would like to add to this
         guide, I do accept contributions. All you have to do is go to section 
         XI.A. to see how!
    
      I.B. The Quest
           Your objective is clear, your friends are gathered, and a dungeon lies
         before you. You must travel far underground to slay the dragon! Whether your
         party can survive and triumph or fail and perish will take luck, skill, and
         knowledge. Collect the Ruby treasures of the fallen Ruby warrior and complete
         your destiny!

    II. Characters
    
      II.A. Magician
    
         Starting Equipment: Staff, Leather
         Primary Attribute: Intelligence
         Summary: Although physically weak, this class is one of the most useful as
                  they possess the ability to cast spells. The game is argueably
                  impossible to complete without at least one magician in the party.
         Level Up Bonuses: +1 to either Str, Int, or Agl; +1-2 HP; +1-3 MP
    
      II.B. Warrior
    
         Starting Equipment: Sword, Leather
         Primary Attribute: Strength
         Summary: This brute force class combines the ability to inflict a large
                  amount of damage with having a high HP maximum.
         Level Up Bonuses: +1 to either Str, Int, or Agl; +2-4 HP
    
      II.C. Thief
    
         Starting Equipment: Dagger, Leather
         Primary Attribute: Agility
         Summary: A nimble class which has a medium HP range. The thief has an
                  unusual propensity to inflict a death blow on an enemy.
         Level Up Bonuses: +1 to either Str, Int, or Agl; +1-3 HP
    
      II.D. Pre-made Party
    
           This is the party created if you select "Use Existing Party" when starting
         a new game. It is a well-rounded, medium-strength party. A custom party can
         have much better stats though.

         q. Stairs down to Lv2
    
        §1. Your party will mysteriously be plopped down in A11. Your first objective
            is very simple - reach the temple without dying. If the party dies, 
            either your party stinks, you have bad luck, or you over-extended 
            yourself.
        §2. Stick around the temple to heal after a few battles. When you are strong
            enough (confidence or level) visit the armory.
        §3. Save up and buy better weapons first so that battles are finished more
            quickly - remember that the best defense is a good offense.
        §4. Pick up Sting at O15.
        §5. Once you are equipped, head for the stairs.  You will have to defeat 
            several guards before you can go down to level 2.  Be sure to save the
            game especially if you are below level 3.  
        §6. The enemies on level 2 are harder but the experience is much better. If
            you only need gold, you can stay on level 1 as they give the same amount.

         n. Stairs down to Lv3
         p. Enemy - 1
         q. Ruby Glasses
    
        §1. As always, stay close to the stairs to get a feel for the monster 
            difficulty. There are no refilling places in the level so keep an eye 
            on your magic points.
        §2. Head to L3 to get a Plus 1 Sword. While it may not be as good as the 
            best sword
            you can buy at the armory, you won't have to save up 750 gold.
        §3. Get up to A1 to get Shield. If you can spare the MP, always cast it to 
            avoid being damaged. It only costs 1 MP and most likely will save you MP
            in not having to cast as many Heals.
        §4. If you do need to get back to level 1 quickly, take either the zoom tube
            (C16) or teleporter (F8).
        §5. Head to the stairs. You will have to fight 5 Goblins, so again be prepared
            and save it. By this time you're party should probably be level 5.

        §1. As you travel beware the Mages.  There is a Magic Fountain but only after
            traveling through the entire level. Use the zoom tube to get back to the
            temple quickly. Don't worry, any switches activated will remain activated
            when you leave the level.
        §2. Follow the hall to the H8-H9 door. This is the only unlocked door in the
            room. The rest shall be opened by switches.
        §3. Head to the northwest room, pick up the spell, and unlock door I8-I9.
        §4. Now go to the southeast room. It is a long spiral hall so be prepared
            before trying to get to the switch.
        §5. When you come to the deadend, pass through the secret wall to the north
            for the switch. Now head back through the halls and go to the northeast
            room.
        §6. Travel north along the wall for a safe, short path to the stairs. Heal
            your party to max HP because you will have to walk past the fountain to
            reach the stairs.
        §7. Before going down, pass into the secret room just north of the fountain.
            When you later find yourself back in the area of level 2, use the Gold
            Key on the locked door (Lv2:N15-O15) to obtain the Ruby Glasses. You can
            then discard the Gold Key.

        §1. In this level 90% of the walls are invisible. This makes it difficult to
            get around unless you count your steps. Once the level is mapped out, it
            is very simple to get through.
        §2. If you have the Horseshoe, go to H4 and use it to gain 5000 exp. This
            will usually give you a level up. Be sure to check your experience points
            to make sure you don't waste it. Remember that experience points don't
            roll over after a level up!
        §3. On the last level you got Major Heal so you won't have to hunt it down
            this time.
        §4. Use the Brass Key to unlock both doors. Afterwards, feel free to get rid
            of the key.
        §5. Fight a few monsters and head on down the stairs.

        §1. Depending upon which stair you take, you will end up on either the east
            or west side of the level.
        §2. If you're feeling adventurous, you can clear the rooms of monsters, 
            however, there is no real prize for it.
        §3. Either way you come down, make your way to the center of the level casting
            Flight before going through the secret door to avoid the traps.
        §4. Head north into the small room and Passwall north.
        §5. Passwall into the room guarded by warnings. The man will give you 1000 
            experience and then teleport you back out to Lv9:L12 when you visit him
            a second time. Each time you go back now, he will subtract a 1000 
            experience.
        §6. You can get the 200 gold by Passwall I6-I7.
        §7. If you need a fountain, you must use one after you use the teleporter so
            you might as well save the two in the teleporter section. Simply Passwall
            to teleporter l (D7).
        §8. This is the zoom tube section of the level. There are four zoom tubes but
            one of them can be entered backward to go onward. You'll want to go down
            only one level as that is where another Temple and Armory are located.
        §9. Go backward into zoom tube v (O3) to reach level 10 starting in the south.
        §10. For the more difficult but shorter path to the level 10 Temple you can 
             take zoom tube w (O5) to level 13 followed by taking any zoom tube in 
             Lv13 to Lv10.

        §1. This is the most difficult level thus far. You must get the Ruby Necklace
            by fighting at least 6 groups of 7 enemies. Make sure you conserve MP.
        §2. First, go to N9 and Passwall east.
        §3. Fight the enemies and then Passwall south. Repeat this several times until
            you get to the amulet.
        §4. If you get winded, the only easy way out of this section is by Passwall 
            G8-F8. It is a one-way Passwall, so only do this if you're spent.
        §5. Always keep an eye on your MP so you don't have to Last Resort.
        §6. Once you get the amulet, a few of the enemies will have come back to 
            block your way out.
        §7. There are actually two ways out of this section but the second is very
            difficult to reach, but on your way you'll pick up a Mage Staff. 
        §8. Passwall north from J16 to J10, east to N10, and then south for a total
            of 10 battles with 7 enemies each.
        §9. Now you have to make your way to Lv10 assuming you have all the Ruby 
            treasures by taking a zoom tube.
        §10. Talk with the man at Lv10:L3 and he will transport you to Lv14:A1.

        §1. The enemies on levels 14-16 are all very powerful and should not be taken
            lightly. Try to avoid fights at this point in the game.
        §2. Level 14 and level 15 are somewhat combined as there are many stairs
            connecting the two. It is easiest to ignore most of the stairs and Passwall
            where you need to go.
        §3. Note there is only one relief on 14 and that is the Magic Foutain at H7.
        §4. To get the Phalanx spell, go to A4, don't take the stairs, and Passwall
            south. Now just Passwall B6-B7 to get into the spell room.
        §5. If you need to get back to Lv10, take stairs A4 down and Passwall Lv15:
            A5-B5 or get to Lv15:O15 for a zoom tube.
        §6. If you want to keep going, go down the stairs at M3.

        §1. If you have collected all the green Victory clues and place them in the 
            order in which level they are, you should have a map to get to the dragon.
        §2. Otherwise, there is nothing to do in the level except get killed.
        §3. The following is the summary of these directions.
        §4. It is best at this point in the game to just run away from the wandering
            monsters to save magic for the dragon.
        §5. Go to B14 where you will be told that Victory lies here. To avoid two 
            traps cast Flight before continuing.
        §6. Passwall north and turn west.
        §7. Take two steps west and backup one space to activate the teleporter at A13.
            You will end up at E12.
        §8. Going west, Passwall twice and turn north.
        §9. Go north and east to K5. Turn south.
        §10. Passwall, go south one step, and turn west.
        §11. Passwall again and take the corridor to the center of the level.
        §12. Defeat the dragon. This is actually quite easy as it is only one enemy.
             I have defeated the dragon as low as level 12 so a better equipped party
             should have no problem.
        §13. If you do need help, simply cast Deadeye, Strength, and Major Heal with
             magicians while whacking away with the rest of the crew.
        §14. The screen will shake and you get the credits upon the dragon's defeat.
             Congratulations!

    IX. Secrets/Hints/Tactics
    
    *From the instruction book:
    
    *Your first goal should be to get better arms and armor, while 
     increasing your experience levels.
    
    *It gets harder to go up an experience level as your characters get 
     stronger, so you will have to go deeper into the dungeon, as the 
     monsters on lower levels give you more experience points if you vanquish 
     them.
    
    *If faced by too strong a foe, don't be afraid to run. Discretion is a 
     better part of valor.
    
    *If you find yourself low on health or spell points, don't hesitate to 
     head for a temple, before its too late.
     
    *Magician: Heal Thyself.
    
    *Once you make it to level five, you can use the shop and temple there 
     as a base for deeper exploration.
    
    *Try to explore a level completely. By looking at the map display, you 
     can get an idea of where secret doors and rooms may be.
    
    *If you're totally stuck and 100% sure that there's absolutely no way 
     out, select LAST RESORT from the ATTRIBUTES/INVENTORIES menu.
    
    *The most balanced team is a warrior, thief, and two magicians.
    
    §Tapping the attack button will often let you attack between monster attacks. If
     you simply wait for your turn, they get more attacks!
    
    §Experiment with attacking different parts of enemies. For example, Zombies
     are very weak to head attacks.
    
    §Keep at least one space open in each character's inventory in case an enemy
     would have an item. You won't get anything if you have no room!

    X. FAQ
    
     Q1.  How do I find ... or get to ...?
     A1.  This is a walkthrough. Either read up until the point where you're stuck 
         or do a word find.
    
     Q2.  Why does my party keep dying?
     A2.  You should try leveling up. Even though the bonuses are small, they do make
         a difference. Also, the more monsters you fight, the better the chance to
         get better weapons/armor. And simply know your limits in your distance from
         base.
    
     Q3.  I have a high AC so why are the enemies still taking a ton off me?
     A3.  Your AC is best described by your ability to avoid an attack. It really
         doesn't reflect how much damage is dealt. Damage is simply a "roll" after
         it is determined that you were hit. You might notice that even with an AC
         of 16, Lv1 monsters can still hit you for the same 4 HP as when you had
         an AC of 2. They just won't hit as often.
    
     Q4.  Can I e-mail you with questions/help/ideas?
     A4.  I will not lie and say that every e-mail will be replied to. This may be
         that you asked a stupid question that has been answered or I have deemed
         the current version the last and therefore history. Of course, any great
         and unique contribution will be added and credited whether be it an FAQ 
         or game data.

           Got information not included here? Want to add it and get listed in the 
          credits? You only need to do three simple things! 
    
         1. Make sure that you have the latest version of the walkthrough by checking 
            http://www.gamefaqs.com!
         2. Make sure that I don't already have or cover the info you're thinking of 
            submitting!
         3. Send an e-mail to averiezen@hotmail.com with either a TXT attachment or 
            the info in the message along with how you want to be credited!
    
           Now there are some things I should tell you... Just because you send me info
         doesn't mean that its going to get included. One such example includes Game 
         Genie codes! Its not that I have anything against Game Genie, its just that
         there are already a hundred places out there that already have those (but no
         walkthrough)! Also, I simply cannot reply to all e-mails, however, if you are
         included I WILL tell you and in which version.
