                          Version 1.0
0.0 ===== WELCOME =============================================================

Hello, and welcome to my DM2 Walkthrough/FAQ! It's my first FAQ/Walkthrough
that I'm actually hoping to finish. The reason I'm writing this is because I
felt that there's not a lot of detailed guides on the net for this game, so I
figured that someone should make one.

I'm writing this as I'm playing through the game, so hopefully I won't miss out
on any important details. The guide is pretty much spoilerfree (not that 
there's a lot to spoil...).

As a quick note, if you want to use this guide on your site, please send me an
email or an IM or whatever (see the contact section).

As another quick note, I will usually refer to the characters as "he". This is
not because I'm sexist, but because it's easier and faster then writing s/he 
everywhere.

2.0 ===== GENERAL INFORMATION =================================================

Dungeon Master 2 is an RPG, and as such, there are skills and stats to be
accustomed with. While you don't hand out skill points per se, nor do you 
actually need to read any of this to get through the game, it might be fun to
know.

     2.1 - The Stats
When you open the character window, you're greeted with the inventory, your
character's name (you can change both the first and the last name), and some
basic stats. When you click the eye, the window indicating your food/water 
levels is changed and shows you more stats and skills. If you are injured (any
of the equipment spots are red), your stats may drop below the "max" level.
These injures are best cured with a simple healing potion, any strength will
do.

Before you ask, yes, the max level increases.

Health (Current/Max): Your character's health. When this reaches zero by any
means, your character drops dead. This means that they drop all they are 
carrying and become a nice pile of bones. You can bring this skeleton to the
ressurection altar by the start of the game, but you'll have to go get the
items (or let someone else carry them). This can be increased by potions or
simply resting.

Stamina (Current/Max): Your character's stamina. This shows how well he can
perform - a character with full stamina hits more oftenly, hits harder, and
(I think) takes less damage. This can be increased by simply standing still,
resting or drinking a potion.

Mana (Current/Max): Your character's mana, or magic points. This shows how
many spells you can cast, in simple words. Different spells require 
different amounts of mana. Generally, the more complex spells require more
mana then the simple ones. Power also greatly affects how much mana a spell
costs.

Food (Brown bar): Shows how well fed your character is. This, I believe,
affects stamina when it drops lower, and when it drops really low, your
character starts taking damage and may well die. This is easily remedied
by eating.

Water (Blue bar): Shows how thirsty your character is. If it drops low,
it has the same effect as Food, but it tends to drop quicker (I also
think it is affected significantly by load). This is easily remedied by
either drinking from a fountain or by drinking from a bota/tankard, filled 
with water from a fountain.

Load (Current/Max): How much your character is carrying. When the
number is in gray, all is well and you are not affected by the weight
you are carrying. When it becomes yellow, a bit under your max weight, it
starts to slow you down and I think it also affects stamina and thirst. If
it crosses the max weight, your character becomes encumbered significantly
and is greatly slowed down. The higher your strength, the more you can
carry. If you find yourself carrying to much, consider stuffing some away or
spreading the weight out over the other party members. Or, if you really can't
drop any items, use the Aura of Speed spell.

Strength (Current/Max): Your character's raw strength. This shows how hard 
he hits and how much he can carry, plus how far he can throw things and how
hard thrown items hit.

Dexterity (Current/Max): How agile your character is. This shows how hard he
hits with ranged weapons and how hard he is to hit, and also affects how big a
chance there is for your character to hit the target.

Wisdom (Current/Max): How intelligent your character is. The higher this is, 
the more mana you have, and the better spells you can use.

Vitality (Current/Max): This shows how endurant your character is. It affects
health and Stamina, and also your armour rating.

Anti-Magic (Current/Max): How well your character is protected against magic.

Anti-Fire (Current/Max): How well your character is protected by fire.


     2.2 - Skills

The only way to increase your stats in Dungeon Master 2 is to increase your
skills, which is basically the game's level system. How do you increase your 
skills then? You use them. Much like the Elder Scrolls games, you become better
at things the more you do them. The Dungeon Master 2 system is a simpler
version of it, but yet very effective.

All the skill levels in the game are "ranked". Neophyte is the lowest 
(actually, unlisted is), and then it increases up to Grandmaster, which is the 
highest. The ranks are as follows:

Unlisted
Neophyte
Apprentice
Novice
Journeyman
Craftsman
Adept
Expert
LO Master
UM MasterON Master
EE Master
PAL Master
MON Master
Grand Master


Fighter skill - This skill describes how good a fighter you are. It increases
your strength and vitality. It also gives you the ability to use more powerful
abilities with your weapons. Increased by smashing things in melee with 
weapons.

Ninja skill - This skill describes how awesome a ninja you would be. It
increases your dexterity, strength and vitality. Increased by throwing things, 
using ranged weapons and by fighting unarmed.

Priest skill - This skill describes how good you would be at making miracles
happen by praying... and some use of magic, to. It increases your wisdom, and
allows you to cast more complex Priest (defensive) spells. Increased by casting
protective spells and making potions, the more complex and powerful the faster.

Wizard skill - This skill describes how well you rip things apart with your
mind. It increases your wisdom and allows you to cast more complex Wizard
(offensive) spells. Increased by casting offensive spells, the more
powerful and complex the faster.


It should be noted that some of these skills can increase other stats, but I'm
not sure just how it works. All seem capable of increasing your Vitality.

     2.3 - Money and shopping

You'll be thankful for money in this game. While there isn't a stunning amount
of shops in the game, there's a lot of neat things you might want from them.
Money in the game is displayed by different coins and gems - from Copper coins
to Diamonds, constantly increasing in value. The shops don't have a shortage
of funds, either, and will gladly exchange with you. The individual coins and
gems values are:

Copper - 1
Silver Coins - 4 (4 copper coins for a silver coin)
Gold Coins - 16 (4 silver coins for a gold coin)
Emerald/Green Gem - 64 (4 gold coins for a green gem)
Ruby/Red Gem - 256 (4 green gems for a red gem)
Diamond/Blue Gem - 1024 (4 red gems for a diamond)

As you can see from this, each coin is worth 4 times as much as the coin below
it. To store your money, it's very advisable to have a money box. You don't
have enough inventory slots to carry around all that money.

Shopping is fairly easy. You walk into a shop (noticable by the sign outside,
which also shows what kind of a shop it is), and you'll find two tables and a
big blue thing with two arrows in the middle. You browse the goods with the
arrows, and walk to the (when facing the tables) right table, put down the
amount of money he requests (you can usually barter... try for yourself) and
he'll turn the table, giving you your item. If you want to sell something, walk
over to the other table and put them on the table. The clerk won't buy anything
that's not in his category, so you should make sure that all the items you want
to sell are in his category (weapon shops don't buy armour). This generally 
isn't to big a problem, but some armour can be confusing due to some of it 
being sold in cloth shops.

You can exchange money by putting the money box (you really need one) on the
selling table. If you put an item you want to sell alongside with the money
box, he'll put the new money in the box (and do the proper exchanging).

A tip, if you don't like that he doesn't give you time to put up all your wares
before spinning the table, a trick is to choose a random item, walk over to
the table where you buy things, and in the direction to the table you sell
things on. When you've done so, start throwing the things you want to sell in
that direction. Nothing will break, so don't worry. Keep throwing all the items
you want to sell, until all are lying on the floor. Then walk up to the pile
and start putting them up on the table. If the clerk approaches, just run back
to the other table and wait. Last, put the moneybox on the table and the clerk
will nicely put all the money in the box and also exchange it.

***BE CAREFUL WHEN PUTTING THE ITEMS DOWN ON THE TABLE*** If you accidentally
throw anything over the table, it's gone. Not only that, but if you hit the
clerk, he'll hide and you'll get his bodyguard on you. While defeatable, he's
not a very fun fight and takes a lot of time. I think the clerk and the
bodyguard both calm down after a bit, but still, be careful.


     2.4 - Magic

Magic is a great asset. While it might be a bit confusing to use at first,
one gets used to it. The system reminds a bit of Ultima 5's system of casting
magic, where you use magic words to create spells.

Magic comes in two schools and in a few more forms. The two schools are
Wizard spells, which focus on offensive spells, and Priest spells, which focus
on protective and supportive skills.

Spells can either be cast raw (which requires an appropriate skill and enough
mana), be used from items (which will either deplete the items energies or
destroy the item), got from potions or bombs (supportive respectively 
offensive) and finally used from weapons and armour (which both deplete the
item's energy). You will, later on, be able to recharge items that have lost
some of their energy.

Spells are represented by between 2 and 4 symbols (potions don't show the 
first). The first symbol is the magnitude of the spell, and the rest are
the actual spell. You take one symbol from each of the following tiers:

Magnitude
   Tier One 
       Tier Two
           Tier Three

As said, the more complex and powerful the spell, the more mana cost, the
more skill required (and gained), and usually the more effective. When you fail
to cast a spell, it'll symbolize this.

? = Nonexistant spell.
Cross = Priest Spell, and you don't have enough skill.
Broken X = Wizard Spell, and you don't have enough skill.

Items that don't have enough energy to use a spell simply doesn't list the 
spell. Some items, like potions and minions, are one time use (though potions 
leave the bottle behind). Some items give spells that are otherwise 
not available, such as the magic box' freeze ability (which pauses time, woot).

Some items, like the sword Fury, have passive magic on them (in the case of
Fury, it works as a torch).

     2.5 - Creating your Party

When you start out, you're all by yourself (Torham Zed). This, however, is
easily remedied, as you start in a room filled with caskets with frozen 
warriors, all eager to assist you (check the character list for details on all
characters).

You get to choose up to 3 companions, and there is no reason (other then for
a challenge game) to choose less. Experience isn't gained in a usual manner,
and as thus isn't shared. It also gives you more ability to carry stuff, and
enemies also can decide to hit any one out of your four members rather then all
standing and hitting on one. Needless to say, it also increases your battle
powers.

So what team do I reccomend? Well, I'd advice getting one Fighter, one Ninja,
one Priest and one Wizard, but I personally use two Fighters (one being 
Torham), one Ninja (who I sometimes use as a Fighter) and one Wizard who 
doubles as a priest.

You can easily look at all the individual characters stats by walking up to
them, clicking on the box they're sleeping in, and clicking on the eye. My
team, for this run through the game, is Torham, Cletus, Equus and lastly Saros.



===== 3.0 - Walkthrough =======================================================

The meat of this guide. First things first, when you start a new game, get used
to the interface. Then, pick a team, see above for a few tips. When you have
got your team, sort out your equipment, put up the right formation, and get
ready to leave.

      3.1 - The first Clan Piece

Once you have assembled your team, climb up the ladder you'll find just where
you started. Once you have ascended, look around. In the chest, there's two
healing potions, get them. There's a door in the room aswell, through it is
the ressurection altar. Remember it, you might need it. Then, walk over to the
table in the corner. Get the Gold Coin and the empty Bota, then pull the table
to the side or smash it. Walk up to the painting and pick it up to reveal a 
hidden slot. Inside is a bag with some food, a magic map, a Solid Key and a
money box with coins worth 38C. Put all your money in the Money Box (or another
if any of your characters had one), except for one copper coin. Save this for
now, by putting it in the slot or somewhere where you won't forget it. Now,
walk to the other door in the room. It's locked, but next to it is a key hole.
Put the Solid Key in it and you can now open the door. Walk out and kill the
Slime, and pick up the Dagger and the Gold Coin it drops.

(Notes: This area is a great place for storage. You can teleport back here
easily once you get the Tech Shield (more on that later) and drop off things
you don't need right away. You can also light the fireplace by using one of
the torches. Not very useful... but cozy :P)

Once you're out of the starting area, you'll be in the first town. There's a
few slimes crawling around, but they are easily disposed of. If you head 
straight out of the entrance and all the way to the corner, you'll find a
scythe (unless a slime took it). Close to it is an orb, a Magic Marker, which
you can see on the map with the better maps, when you've activated the 
magic/projectile function.

On the right (if you look from the exit to this area) there's a locked door.
On the other side is the town. Head towards it. You'll find a Teleport Star
(this is where you teleport if you stand on any other and use the Tech Shield),
a staff and a fountain. In the fountain you can find some money. Continuing on,
you'll find the inn. Inside it, on your right, there's a table with a potion
and a key. The key is what you need to leave this area, so grab it, and the
potion aswell, if you want to.

You can fill up on water in here, to. Just outside the inn you can find a dead
bat, which is edible. Head back out and to the locked door. Put the key in the
keyhole and you can now go out.

(Notes: You really want to buy some better weapons. There's some War Clubs,
that are cheap and powerful, in the weapon shop.  I'd advice buying them. The
sticks and rocks are pretty pointless but can be thrown, and you can practice
by hitting the trees until they break.)

Once you're out of this area, follow the road. You'll start encountering Worms
here. You'll see Skullkeep in front of you. If you want to, you can enter and
get yourself a Morning Star, but you don't have to.

If you do want to, head into Skullkeep. Once you get in, there's three 
braziers. Grab the third one (the one that'll be on your right side), pull it 
away, and behind it you'll find a loose stone. Remove it and you'll find a 
button. Press it, and you'll find that the right alcove ahead of you has a 
Morning Star in it.

If you don't want to or you're done getting it, take to the left (or right,
if you're coming from Skullkeep). Head onwards. You'll find a ladder downwards.
You can either climb down this ladder or head onwards to the new area. There is
some nice stuff if you choose to climb down, and you'll end up next to another
ladder that also leads down and gets you at least one green gem and some bats
you can kill for food. Do note that the bats are poisonous if they manage to
attack you.

Anyhow, if you choose to head in the normal way, you'll just want avoid the 
Thorn Demons. While they do give you nice food, they are very dangerous. 

If you scout around the area, you can find a bow and some arrows that are quite
useful if you're using a bow. You can also find a Slayer Arrow here.

(Notes: Once you get a bit more powerful, this is a great place to get food.)

Anyway, from the normal entrance, head a bit left and then right to enter a
misty area. Inside here you can find a few mana blossoms that, on top of 
giving you mana, also sell pretty darn well. Avoid the lighting Vortices, you
can't hurt them. Soon you'll reach an area that have stone archways, and in the
centre of this area a stone table. On the table is a Lightning Key, a Bag with
an explosive bomb in it, a better magic map (that allows you to, at the cost of
mana, see items, secrets, enemies and also lock it in place) and the first of
the clan keys. Congratulations!


     3.2 - The Second Clan Piece

I'd advice you to head back to town now, and put away the map and your newly
acquired clan piece in a safe place (or fit it into Stonekeep). Sell any items
you don't want, maybe buy some armour, then head back to just before the area
with the Thorn Demons. If you look right just a bit before the archway, you'll
find a locked door with a Lightning Key slot. Put your key in and open the 
door. Head straight onwards through the Arch-Way. This marks the entrance of 
what might possibly become your greatest enemy ever - the Thief. If it does 
manage to steal anything from you, disengage and let him start running away. 
He'll lead you straight to his lair where he keeps all his stuff, and there 
might be something of actual use there.

Regardless, you'll soon find a turn to the left. You can head there right away,
if you want to, but I'd advice getting the Tech Shield up ahead first. If you
do want it, head straight forward, and you'll soon reach a star just like the
one in town, and on it you'll find a shield. This isn't just any shield, 
though. If you equip it and stand on the star, you can use it's "Teleport"
ability to be warped back right to the first town. Very useful, and it's your 
only way out of the depths of Skullkeep later on. Regardless, the thieves' den
can be found if you take the small path next to the locked door close to the
teleporter star. Now, head back to the passage earlier. Pick up the mushrooms,
they sell for a good amount of money, and head in.

(Notes: When you enter here, thieves can start spawning back in town. Remember
to lock the door by taking the key out, if you use the starting place as a
storage area.)

Right when you enter the new area, look to your left for a nice staff, a 
Bainbloom. The spell it unleashes creates a toxic cloud. Don't stand to close
to it or you'll take a huge amount of damage. Head straight onwards and turn
left and you'll be offered two directions. Choose the rightmost one. Around now
you'll start seeing Wolves - nasty buggers. On the way you'll also find sticky
ground - stand on it and you might find yourself stuck and surrounded by wolves
who are after adventurer flesh. The wolves aren't affected by this, of course, 
so you need to be very careful. If you have to pass over some (which you do), 
try and be quick about it. Continue straight onwards and you'll reach a large
area with the sticky ground. In it you can find a corpse with a money box and
a horned helmet, but it's generally not worth it unless you can fight the 
wolves.

Walk out as far as you can before reaching the sticky ground, turn right, and
run. Follow the path and you'll soon reach a stone table. On it is a Moon Key,
a Scout Map (which is a further upgraded Magic Map) and lastly the Second Clan
piece. Congratulations!

(Notes: There's a bone on the way to the Stone table, that can be used to 
distract a Wolf.)


    3.3 The Third Clan Piece

Before you leave the Wolf area, you might want to take a look below ground. As
you probably noticed, there's a lot of holes, and the only way to get past them
is to push boulders that are on the level below to fill up the holes. While not
terribly rewarding, there are a few nice things (strength potions, as an 
example). There's a ladder down on the way back, so be my guest. Once done, 
head back out. Grab the Tech Shield, if you haven't already, on your way to the
next area. Head back to town, if you want to sell things or clear up inventory
space.

Go to the locked door, right by the Teleporter Star, and use your new key to
open it. Go through the archway. If you want to, you can now turn left and take
the small path down to find a Ra-Sar shield. This is also the thieves' den, and
there's sometimes two of them at once here.

Now, head straight forward, dealing with any monsters you run into on the way.
Soon, you'll reach a Teleporter star. This might just become your best friend,
if you intend to buy the best equipment, but we'll get to that as a sidenote.
Anyhow, to your left is an archway. Go through it. Walk up to the tree, turn
left. Head pretty much straight forward, swaying for one tree and taking two
steps to the right, and you'll reach the stonetable. Once you grab the things
on it, giants will start jumping down. They are not only giants with huge axes,
but they're thieves aswell, and contrary to the normal thieves, these are a
PAIN to find the hiding places off. Kill them for the axes that sell for a LOT
of money. If you continue down on, you'll reach the second town. It's got the
same stores, but with lowered buying and selling prices. If you're a bit slow 
with the mouse, buy yourself at least three Large Gears, and also, I would a
avice you to buy a vacuum fuse from this guy, if you're not in the mood for
hunting a flying chest.

Well, now you've got the Third Clan piece and the next key. Congratulations!

(Notes: You should buy a Vorax in this town, if you have the money. This is
also possibly the best place to get money in the game, so if you want some
really good armour and weapons, keep killing the giants and selling their axes
back in the first town.)


     3.4 The Fourth Clan Piece

If you left a copper coin in the storage area, as I told you was a good idea
early on, go back and get it now.

When you're done with the giants, head back out. Head straight forwards and use 
your new key on the door and open it. When you enter the next area, you'll
start seeing new enemies, the Minions. They shoot lightning like the Lightning
Vortices, but these can be killed with normal blades. Continue straight on and
you'll soon find another misty archway. Before you got here though, look just
to the side of the path leading there and you'll find a Vorpal Blade in the 
bushes. You'll really want this weapon - it's the only material weapon that can
hurt non-material beings (like specteres). Keep moving onwards through the
archway and you'll reach a Graveyard.

(Notes: From here on in, minions will spawn at random places.)

Grab the serpent staff on the ground but don't walk up to the grave with the
shopkeeper guy. It'll summon a wraith that's not really very fun to fight. Turn
to the left and head out the only opening available to you.

When you've just headed out it, look on your right side for a Spirit Cap. They,
just like the Fairy Cushions, sell for a ton of money. There's also a pineapple
just outside the small path, if you need one. There's evil treants here, so you
want to be careful. When you come out of the path, turn left and cross the 
sticky ground and you'll reach a small fort of sorts.

When you enter, you'll see several wood tiles on the floor. Don't step on just
any of these, they open like trapdoors. Turn right and follow the wall, and 
you'll see a boulder on the ground. Look on the wall and there'll be a button.
Press it and a secret door will open right next to you. This wooden tile is 
safe, so just head over it and into the sideroom. Inside is a Magikal Box and
a key you'll need.

If you turn around, you'll see a staircase leading down. That's the way back up
if you fall down here or in the next area. Anyway, go out of the small room and
turn right and walk over the tile and you'll stand just by another room.

(Notes: On the floor below is a full set of Plate Armour, so if you want that,
you should go down. Just be weary of the ghosts.)

If you look on your map, you'll see this room has moving holes in it. Yeah, 
it's just as bad as it seems. You can either use your Magikal Boxes' freeze
ability when the holes are in a position so they won't bother you for now, or
save it (you'll need to cross through the room twice more). I usually save mine
and instead run out into the middle of the room when the holes are as far from
the centre as possible, and use the eye ability with the Scout Map. That way,
you'll always know exactly where they are. Anyway, when the holes won't be a
concern, quickly run to the right side of the room, put the key in and open the
door. Step inside.

(Notes: Yes, the holes will chase you. Yay -_-. You can also use the Aura of 
Speed spell, if you want to, to make it easier. They also will NOT move to 
the spot where you have a magical eye on, which also makes it easier.)

Next up, you're faced with a path. Follow it, and you'll soon reach pressure
plates. There's not a whole lot you can do about avoiding them, so just step
over them and turn around to fight a mummy. They're not very dangerous, so it's
not a big deal. Repeat this until you reach the end of the room. There's a 
total of four mummies to deal with. Anyway, you'll reach a room with a tepestry
on one of the walls. Take it down to reveal a secret slot, and in it you'll 
find a Guard Minion you can use, a Fury sword (which works as a torch), two 
gold coins and lastly a new Key. Head back the passage and to the room with the
holes. Head back to where you first stood, it's easier that way, or use the
Magikal Boxes' freezing ability. Anyway, from there, head over to the other 
side where you'll find another locked door and a keyslot. Use the new key on
it and head in.

(Notes: Remember how I told you to take that copper coin with you? Yeah, hope
you have some coin of low value.)

You'll see a table with the clan piece on. Walk up to it and it'll turn, like
a shopkeeper's table. Wherever you stand, the key is on the other side. To get
the key, put any (yes, any) coin or gem, preferebly the one with the lowest 
value that you own, down on the table, and a ghostly shopkeeper will spin the
and give you the Fourth Clan Piece. Congratulations!


     3.5 Inside Skullkeep

Once you've got the key, head out to the room with the moving holes and head
to the only side you haven't been on yet (right from the room you should be in
now). You'll come out.

In here, you'll face off against a bunch of Skeletons with Machettes. Be
careful, they can hit pretty hard! There's two red fountains here, one has a
Red Gem in it and the other a fire bomb. If you head in between the two 
fountains, you'll reach a Magic Shop that has a bunch of exotic weapons and
stuff. I'd advice taking a look inside.

Continue straight onwards and you'll be by the area before the graveyard. 
Head onwards and you'll soon see that archway again, but instead turn right 
and head onwards and you'll reach another archway, head through it and continue
onwards until you reach a door. It'll open, and you'll find yourself by 
Skullkeep.

Head back to town, get all the Clan Pieces, and head into Skullkeep.

(Notes: And also, make sure you get yourself good equipment! You'll need it!)

***AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THAT TECH SHIELD***

When you feel you're ready, head into Skullkeep. To open the door, you'll need
to insert all four clan pieces into the slot to the left of the door. When all
are put in, there's a drawn out mechanical noise, and after that you can open
the door. Head in, and the door will shut and lock behind you. Ahead of you is
some bones and a pressure plate. Add one and one together, and you'll 
understand that it's dangerous. Step onto the plate, and quickly back off. A 
powerful fireball will fly by. After that, it's safe. Step back on and turn to 
your left and you'll see the grates are shut. Turn to the other side and you'll
see three buttons. There's only one way to tackle this problem - that being to 
click each button manually and quickly run backwards before the grates shut 
(left, right, centre, in that order, for best chances).

(Notes: You might also want to use the Aura of Speed spell, it helps a lot. If
you don't want to use that spell, make sure you're not burdened.)

Once you've crossed, you'll see a staircase upwards and a small alcove, plus
a path into another room with a bunch of holes. In the Alcove you'll find a
key, the one that leads out of Skullkeep (be careful so you don't step on the
tile with the three buttons - it'll close all the grates), and a new map. 
This map is the coolest gadgets in the game. It summons a minion that carries
things from or to location you specify.

If you want to, head to the room with the holes. There's a ladder (don't go 
down it) and in the centre, a Tempest sword. When you pick it up, your way out
is blocked by a hole, but it disappears when you put the sword down. You have
two options here. One is without the minion map, and what you do is that you 
stand by the ladder and throw the sword towards the newly opened hole, on the 
right side of it (closest to the way out of this room). When it's landed, the
hole will shut. Walk over so you're standing in the path leading out of the 
room, and you can pick up the sword without falling down. Should you fall down,
you'll be fighting of a bunch of worms that hurt a LOT because of their poison.

If you want to use the Minion Map (which I didn't think of until later), either
walk up to the Tempest Sword, put a cross down on the ground with the map, and
then walk out of the room back to the staircase. Then, use the "fetch" command,
that is, the eye pointing horizontally. The other way is to put a marker on the
ground by the staircase (or any place, really) and then stand on the Tempest
and use the "drop" command, which is the one with the eye and the arrow 
pointing at the cross. Either way, enjoy the sword, it's a good one.

Anyway, head up the staircase when you feel you have time to do so. You'll be
in a room with a grating and a rope next to it. Pull the rope, and soon enough,
a monk will open it. These monks are quite nasty fellows, but don't fight 
unless provoked (which you will have to do). As you'll soon notice, one of them
is carrying a double-sided trident. This is a Numenstaff, and you'll need it.
You can either attempt to kill the carrier or pick it up when he puts it in the
cauldron. In either case, the monks will attack you, and they can take the 
staff back. Kill them or just wield the staff and the other door in the room
will open.

*** DO NOT PLAY AROUND WITH THE MONKS *** They are quite capable of 
transforming a strong party to ashes, especially the monk with the staff. Don't
mess around with them and just kill them as quickly as you can.

(Notes: In this room, there's two alcoves with some items. There's also scrolls
telling you what to put in the cauldron to create things. There's also a secret
wall that you can stand in that holds a Combat Staff that you might want. Plus,
there's an apple and a Potion on a table.)

When you get into the next room, you'll see a pressure plate, and a locked 
door. A quick peek on the map will show you a room with no appearent entrances,
however, using the "Secrets" function on any decent map (the second one) will
show you that there's a secret wall there. Head through it, and look on your
right side. Take the plate out and the eye out, and drop them on the floor. If
you don't do that, you'll get blasted by a very powerful set of fireballs that
will most likely kill your party. Step back into the hidden wall and look on
the side - there's a button there. Push it, and it'll open the way to another
of the eyes. Do the same to that one.Head back out to the pressure plate. When 
you put enough pressure on it, the door opens quickly and then closes. What you
should do is that you should stand so you can strafe (use '3' on the numpad) to
the door quickly, and then throw something so that it lands on the plate. It
doesn't really matter what since you'll get it back, as you can permanently 
open the door from the other side. Do so.

Be careful in heading down the path. You'll see a wall like the one you saw by
the entrance to Skullkeep. If you haven't pulled the eye out, it'll activate
kill you, so do that. Head down the path, and you'll soon see another eye. One
step away from it, it'll trigger. A quick look on the map with the secrets
function will show you that there's a hidden passage to the right, so quickly
head in. Turn left and follow the path and you'll reach another plate and eye,
pull them out. Step through the wall ahead of you (it's another illusion), and
on your right there's a Ra-Sar helmet you might want. Continue on and you'll 
see another plate and eye - remove them. If you head straight on in from the
first hidden entrance, you'll get into a small room with a large gear in, pick
it up. Once done you can continue back down the path.

Once you're through the archway, you'll reach a new area. There's some water
here, plus a guard minion. Heading into the room, you'll run into an alcove. In
it is another Large Gear - pick it up. Also pick the ring up, you'll want it.
It has the same ability as the magikal box, freezing time. To the right is a
door with some mechanics as a keyhole - put the gear in and open the door, then
pull the gear out and head further in. Repeat the process, but be quick. If
you're to slow, you'll fall down and you'll have to redo it (this is what the
ladder is for in the earlier room, if you ran into it).

When you get through the gear locks, you'll get to a room with a lot of Minions
and a few strange openings in the walls. You can use a spell to close these,
any power and the sixth rune from the left. The minions in here seem to
transform into stronger versions sometimes, and that might be linked to the
portals, but I'm not sure.

Anyway, there's a teleporter star here. If you need to use this then 
accidentaly use another, remember to put the Numen Staff in your backpack, or
you'll have to deal with the Numen Monks stealing it on the way back. There's
also a few machines here, but you can't do anything with them yet. Plus, a 
large gear in one of the corners. By one of the machines yuo'll find two spots
for ladders. On the side of one is a lever - you NEED to pull this, it'll make 
a ladder appear leading down (but you don't need to use it to climb down). In 
one wall (close to the Large gear), you can insert the key you found earlier. 
Do so, then press the button that's next to it. The key will be released and 
drop down a newly opened hole - jump after it (if you have a rope, use that).

You'll find yourself next to another hole in a large room with a hulking green
monster (looking somewhat troll like) walking around. You need to kill him. You
can kill him through the good old way (hack and slash), or you can use a trap
in this room that will damage him significantly (or you, if you don't do it
right). If you choose to fight him normally, be aware of his spells. They hurt
a whole lot. Before you move though, grab the key on the ground.

If you choose to use the trap, then quickly turn around and walk past the hole
and turn right. You'll probably encounter him - don't think to much about him
and just keep moving. You'll pass by a locked door - he carries the key to it.
Anyway, eventually you'll run into a door that has a switch next to it (and
use your map to see that there's another door close by, with a small passage
between them). Flip the switch! It's very important. After you've done so, open
the door and head in. Make sure the troll follows you, then run to the other 
end of the path. You'll see a black spot in the lower right part of the wall.
Click on it, then run through the door next to you as it opens. Then, quickly
turn around and close it. The Troll will be stuck and he'll take a lot of 
damage, usually enough to kill him. If not, you can usually finish him off
quickly.

Anyway, once you've killed him, pick up his key and look around. There's an
Emerald staff on the way to the trap in an alcove, and at least four green gem
veins. If you want to, there's also a small side area of the cave you can visit
with a bunch of skeletons (easier now then before) and some worms. Past these
worms there's two more Green Gem veins and a staircase leading downwards. In
this area, you'll see small lava holes, and fire elementals that blow 
themselves up will spawn. It's a very dangerous place, but there's blue gem
veins, so it's worth a shot. Just save before you go down. Be wary of the 
collapsing roofs - while they're easy to destroy (and net you not only Pyro,
which you'll need soon [but can find plenty elsewhere], but green gems to), not
being prepared for them hurts a lot.

You should now look for the locked door (there's rock monsters on the other 
side). Put the key in the keyhole and open the door. The rock monsters won't
attack you... for now. When inside, take two steps to the right and look on the
wall right by you. There's a loose boulder... press it and it'll open a 
teleporter (that looks like blue rain). Walk into it. From here on in, some of
the rock monsters might throw rocks at you, but they're not very dangerous.

Follow the path by the hole and you'll soon reach what looks like some sort of
boiling aparatus, fastened in a wall. You'll need to throw Pyros into these -
some rock monsters might do so and you can find a lot of Pyros lying aorund on
the ground. When you've ignited it and threw a bunch of Pyros into it, proceed
past it. Looking on the map you might find a place that looks like where you'd
have a ladder, climb it up to get back. Turn to the right from that point 
if you wishand head through the archway. In here, there's a ton of boulders and
bats flying around. You can find a way out of the cavern here, should you want
to have some fresh air... ;).

When you get back up, you'll find that a door that you couldn't open before can
now be opened. Do so, and go through it. You'll find a spot for the key you
you used to open the hole, so put it in so you can open the next door. Open it
and you'll find yourself in a new room with some more of those portals. Close
them as per usual, if you wish. Turn to the right and you'll find a ladder, a
hole in the ground, a pressure plate and a Scout Map in a slot. Stepping on the
pressure plate will cause a spell to be cast continuatly that opens and closes
the hole. There's no way to make the hole remain closed this way. We'll return 
Open up your scout map (either of them), click the eye, and then on the map, 
click on the spot on the other side of the hole. Wait for the eye to finish
moving there, and then cast the spell "zo" spell (any power then the sixth 
rune from the left, the same to close the portals). The hole will shut. Walk 
across, and turn to the right. Flip the lever in the small opening, then if you
want to, open the door. Then head up the stairs.

(Notes: Go back and then the other way to find another ladder. Make sure you 
have something to freeze time and SAVE YOUR GAME. There's a lot of blue rain 
here, however, it doesn't teleport you. Most of the buttons on the walls here 
will cause fireballs to be shot at you - these turn at all the blue rain spots,
so be careful. On this level is also the devious imp, that will gladly push 
these buttons. My advice is to find him, then freeze time (you might need to do
so twice) and bash him to pieces. He drops one Magikal Box and a fire bomb, but 
more then anything, you don't have to worry about getting a fireball in your 
face.

With the imp out of the way, walk around with a map turned on and detect 
secrets activated. In one hallway (that's two spaces thick rather then the
usual one, in this area), you'll find a secret wall. Walk through it, and turn
to your left. Make two steps forward and look at the wall. Remove the loose
boulder and press the button. If you want to, drink some water, then go through
another secret wall right by it to get a bag with some gems and past that to
reach a small alcove with another Eye of Time ring. Head back out, and look for
a door that's open (it opens when you kill the imp). Walk in and you'll find a
small alcove with a healing potion (wiee -_-) and a button. Press it to make
the ladder go down where you climbed down, so you can get back up.)

When you've climbed upstairs, follow the path onwards and turn left. You'll
start meeting lizardmen with bows here. They shoot and drop a TON of slayer
arrows, so you might want to get accustomed to your Minion Map ;). Turning
to the left, you'll find a locked door with a strange key hole. Keep moving and
you'll find a machine that seems to be lacking a component. But a Large Gear
into it (there's one in a slot further down, if you don't have any) and it'll
work. If you turn around and walk forward you'll reach a room with three 
pressure plates, but there's not much else of use in there. You can use this
to trap the chest you might see fly by, though. The pressure plates shoot
fireballs, so be careful. Following the wall here you'll reach another machine
that lacks a component, in this case a Vacuum Fuse. You'll find this in the
chest that's flying around, or you could be lazy and go buy one. Regardless,
the chest does hold a Stormring and another Magikal Box, which makes it worth
the time it takes.

Anyway, with both the gear and Vacuum Fuse fitted, turn to the left and walk to
a grating door. Open it (you couldn't before putting both the gear and fuse in)
and walk in. In the alcove is a key, the Master Key, which you should use on 
the door with the odd lock. Remember this room for later. Once you've opened it 
grab the key and head through the archway. You'll need the key again so don't 
forget it.

In the next area, there's a locked door on your right with no way button to
press. Instead, turn to the right and flip all the switches that are DOWN. 
Don't touch any that are already up - it won't do you any good. Follow the path
of newly opened doors. At the first turn, turn right, and ignore the opening to
your right that's coming up next. After that, take the first turn to the left
and flip the switch to activate the ladder leading down to the hallway with the
fireball eyes. Smash the huge barrel in this room to find a few bombs and yet
another Vacuum Fuse. You can smash the other barrels in the area for more 
bombs, should you want any. 

Continue on and you'll reach a door where you need the Master Key. Use it, and
you can open the door. An evil guard minion is on the other side - either put
up one of your own minions before opening the door or just use some magic or
whatever to beat it. Walk into the room and you can flip the switch that leads
down to the room with the Teleporter star. There's another spot for a Vacuum 
Fuse here, so put the one you found in here. In one of the alcoves is a Cross
Key, get it. Now head back to the room where you found the Master Key and use
your new key there. The ladder will come down so you can climb it. There's also
two levers that activate some kind of pump, that you'll need to turn on.

(Notes: In this room you can find a pair of hidden Ra-Sar Greaves and also 
another Ra-Sar Shield, should you need them.)

In the next area, SAVE at every safe spot you get.

From here on in, you'll be facing MUCH stronger Minions. Go upstairs and you'll 
come to a room, filled with tables. Smash them, making a path to the other end 
of the room, but watch out for minions when doing so. You'll find yourself in a 
room with a pit and two wooden goat heads moving back and forth. If you stand 
by one of these heads you'll be pushed into the hole. The best way to deal with
this is to cast Aura of Speed at the highest power you can and get past the 
most lonely one of the heads. Walk up to the one furthest from the entrance and
leap past when you can. When you're past, catch your breath and make sure the 
Aura is still active. If not, cast it again and then quickly run in the only 
direction you can and quickly turn left and pass that goat head. When you've
passed that, pass the leftmost goat head. Then pass the goat head straight 
ahead of you. 

On the other side you'll see a table with an Attack Minion, and following the 
path just by it you'll find a Guard Minion. Pick them up if you want to. If you
want some more, pass the other goat head that you can pass on this side for two
more Guard Minions. Otherwise, head down the path with the Archway.

You'll enter a room with two blue, moving rains. Turn left and avoid them for
now. You'll reach a room just before another room - use the Master Key on the
door and open it. Turn the Water Valves in this room and activate the flaming
things, whatever they're called. Then use the lever on the wall in the centre
to lower the ladder, which you can climb down to get to the teleporter room
(and the room between these levels ;)).

If you want to, you can head the other way now, and you'll reach a room with
four holes, a locked door, and a pressure plate. Throw a heavy enough item with
a poor enough thrower so that it lands on the pressure plate, and the holes 
will disappear, and the door will open. In it you'll find a Fire Plate, Fire
Greaves and another Fury sword.

Regardless, head to the room past the door that required the Master Key. The
Large Reflectors you see can be moved and need to be moved. If you click their
side, you can turn them to make them either "/" or "\". You'll want to put them
as this awful ASCII art shows:

/...\
..0..
..+..
##O##
.....
\././

Stepping on the pressure plate (0) will cause a fireball to erupt from the
target mark (O, it's a bullseye on the ingame map), that bounces when it hits
the Reflectors. By flipping the switches on the wall marked (one on each side),
you can move and turn these reflectors. Flip the right most switch (when looking
over the hole), so it looks like this on the map (you might need to pull the
middle one, to, because it only turns on every other pull):


/...\
..0..
..+..
##o##
\....
..\./


Now, step on the Pressure plate. The fireball will bounce from the middle one
to the right one then up to yours. Now, when it has bounced off the first one,
flip the middle switch so it looks like this (fireball = X):

/...\
..O..
..+..
##o##
\./..
...X/

It doesn't matter if you flip it now or a bit later, as long as you do flip it,
before it hits the fourth time. Then, it'll bounce back in where it shot from
and the holes will disappear and you're free to cross.

(Notes: There's also a door, which you can blow up by making it look as 
follows on the other side of the holes:

##o##
/...\
..\..|

Where | is the door. You only need to care about the middle one. It's the only
way to open the door. In it you'll find a full Fire Armour set and also, with
the press of a certain button, another Fury sword.)

Follow down the newly opened path and climb the stairs up. Up here, you'll find
a locked door with a new key, displays that display all the machines that are
currently active. The water valves should be up and running, the fire might
have gone out (to solve that, just climb down and put more pyro in), the pumps
should be running and to activate the boiler just go to that level and flip the
switch by it. You'll also find a Teleporter Star in one of the side rooms. The
main attraction here now though is a large field of electricity. To run past
it, you'll need to use the Aura of Speed spell and run as soon as you can. Even
one strike from these is enough to do you in, so be careful and SAVE. Well, on
the other side, take a look around the corner and flip the switch to turn the
electricity off. Then walk up to the alcove, and save again. Then pick up the
Onyx Key. This might be a bit tricky. If you get the Skull Key, put it back in
and then try again. Picking up both freezes you in the strange circle and I 
have yet to figure out a way to break a free from that.

Now that you have the Onyx Key, head back.

(Notes: You might need to get some food, so use the teleporter and drop off
any items you don't want or sell them and pick up some food either by killing
the Thorn Demons or by buying it)

Use the Onyx Key on the lock and the door will open by itself. Head through the
passage and through the archway. Turn right when you've reached the end of the 
path and flip the switch to lower the ladder, leading to the moving 
teleporters. Turn around and you'll see a plate on your right side. Open it and
press the button beneath it. Then turn left and walk up to the slot, where 
you'll find an Excysmyr sword. Back to the lever by the ladder, and then head
out the passage you just came in from. Remove the key, and put it back in the
slot and now picking up the Skull Key.

(Notes: If you quit the game and reloaded or died and reloaded, the electricity
will have reactivated, at least in version 1.00.)

Now head downstairs and into the room with the moving Blue Rain teleporters. On
one of the walls there's a ladder leading up now, quickly head there and go up.
From there, turn right and head into the room you haven't been in yet. Head 
straight across the room, and into a small hallway. Turn left and by the locked
door you'll see a skull with a small opening for a key. Put the Skull Key in,
and a teleporter will open right by you.

You'll find yourself in a small room with two refloctors, two tables and a
brazier. You're blocked in all directions. What you should do is turn to the
reflector next to you and shoot a Fireball spell (preferebly from the 
Numenstaff). This will, after a few shots, break the table ahead of you and let
you move the Brazier. Move it forward two steps, then smash the other table.
Move the reflector out of the way of the door and open it, then pull it out to
the big room with the strange rock in the middle, and repeat with the other
one, so it looks like this:

o|^.#o|
.......
.......
.......
.\.X./.

(o = where fireballs come out, | = switch, ^ ladder up)

Now pull the switches. Make sure the fireballs hit the crystal at the same time
or else it won't work. When done, go to the other side of the room and flip the
electricity switch. If it doesn't do anything, make sure all machines are 
working (the furnace tends to go out... bloody minions). With that, the door
ahead of you will open, if the timing is correct. The timing can be hard to get
in, so be patient. Once it has opened, you can shut down the fireballs and
electricity - the door will stay open.

(Notes: If you REALLY want to you can head upstairs... there's a TON of
monsters there. Be careful.)

Before heading into the Void, drop the items you don't need, or sell them,
whatever. And make sure you only have the best of the best equipped, no 
uncharged weaponry. Stock up on potions. You can manage on one Steak and one
filled bota per person, plus their armour and weapons.

Go through the door. Welcome to the void, I guess! Have fun.

Be careful - You can fall of easily. There's also a myriad of Minions around.
Follow the path (bring a map) ahead, and continue forward. You'll soon reach a
moving bridge. Put on the Aura of Speed spell and run over - careful not to 
move to fast or slow, else you'll land in the middle of nowhere (once I landed
in the graveyard before the Fourth Clan piece O_o). The next bridge is the same
in essence, except a bit longer. When you've headed over it, you'll reach the
big bad guy - Dragoth or whatever his name is. He's a challenge alright - only
the rooftop is harder (that's because you can hardly move and there's enemies
everywhere). He keeps summoning minions, pushes you around, seems to teleport
(might be just pushing you though), uses some devastating spells, and has a lot
of health, roughly 1500. Keep moving, use all your best potions and keep
hitting him and he'll fall, though. After a while, he'll disappear into thin 
air and the outro will start. Congratulations! You just beat Dungeon Master II!



4.0 ===== CREATURES AND ENEMIES ===============================================

Below follows a list of all the enemies and creatures you will encounter in the
game. Summonable minions are not included here, instead, they are by their 
spells. This is the rough order in which you encounter the enemies. You might
encounter them in a different order in some cases (e.g. you don't have to meet
the Shopkeepers or Bodyguards at all).


-=Shopkeeper=-

Description: They're kinda big and have elf ears. They come in a few flavours,
but they all work the same.

Health - Unknown
Power - Unknown
Threat - Unknown
Abilities - Selling and buying
Other Notes - You can't, as far as I know, actually fight these things. The 
tables they hide behind are unbreakable. You can at best get one or two
spells in, but that's about it. Attacking these alerts the much more 
dangerous bodyguard.
Drops - Unknown


-=Bodyguard=-

Description: They look sorta horse-esque. They've got claws, spikes on their
shoulders, a blue garb and red eyes. You usually don't have to fight these.

Health - Very High
Power - High
Threat - High
Abilities - Their attacks can knock you backwards a step
Other Notes - If you insist on fighting these things, be my guest. Just try
and keep moving back and forth, hitting and retreating then going back in after
he tries to hit you and hit him again. Repeat for a long while - and you don't
really get anything to compensate for it. Normally you won't have to fight 
these.
Drops - None


-=Slime=-

Description: It looks like a huge slime, crawling around on the floor. It's
the first enemy you see during the game.

Health - Low
Power - Low
Threat - Low
Abilities - None of notice
Other notes -  No real tactics needed, just smash them.
Drops - None

-=Claw Worms=-

Description: They borrow underground, and can't be hit when doing so. When they
rise, they look sort of like two big hands with claws, that sweep at you.

Health - Low
Power - Low
Threat - Low
Abilities - Immortal when underground
Other notes - You can't hit them when underground, but otherwise they're as 
easy as slimes.
Drops - 3-5 Worm Rounds

-=Bat=-

Description: A bat. They can usually be found flying around in caves. Sometimes
you find them sleeping.

Health - Low
Power - Medium
Threat - Low-Medium
Abilities - Poison
Other notes - While their bite in itself isn't particularly powerful, it does
poison. You might find yourself running low on health if you got bit to much,
so don't play around with them and just kill them.
Drops - Dead Bat

-=Thorn demon=-

Description: Hulking, rhino-like creatures. Usually not very aggressive, unless
provoked.

Health - Medium
Power - Medium
Threat - Medium-High
Abilities - Might knock you back if you're hit.
Other notes - The reason they might be a threat is because you encounter them
early on in the game. At that point, they're usually strong enough to kill you
in but a few blows. When you're just about to enter Skullkeep or have done so,
these are usually very easy to kill.
Drops - 2-4 Steaks

-=Lightning Vortex=-

Description: A whirlwind with lightning in it.

Health - Medium
Power - High
Threat - High
Abilities - Spectral, shoots lightning, can be walked through
Other notes - You can't kill these things when you first encounter them, apart
from with a certain spell, so the best thing to do is try to avoid them. When 
you first encounter them, one strike is enough to kill one of your party 
members instantly, and they still remain a force to be reckoned with later on.
Luckily you can walk right through them. If you really want to you can kill 
them with the vorpal Blade, but it's not worth the time.
Drops - None

-=Thieves=-

Description: A hobbit like fellow, who wanders around an area and picks up
anything he finds... from you, aswell.

Health - Medium
Power - Low
Threat - Low
Annoyance level - Ridiculously high
Abilities - Massive annoyance AKA Stealing your things
Other notes - All thieves in an area have the same hideout, so if you've found
it once and you lost a thief in his tracks, you'll know where to find him. He
can only steal things that you've got in your hands, so there's no risk of you
losing your moneybox unless you accidently forgot to unequip it. You'll see
when he's trying to steal from you when he's grabbing towards you, and he'll
also say "mine!".
Drops - 3-4 Gold Coins, 1-2 Daggers

-=Wolves=-

Description: A wolf, relative to the dog. Mean and annoying, but luckily rare.

Health - Medium
Power - Medium
Threat - Medium
Abilities - Jumping over Holes
Other notes - One on one, there's no reason to fear them. They bite a bit on
the hard side, but it's not to significant if it's not the wizard/priest being
hit. What makes them a threat is that they can surround you on the sticky 
ground, where you have no chance of escaping and you're being mercilesly ripped
to shreds. Avoid, if you can.
Drops - None

-=Giants=-

Description: Huge axe-wielding monstrosities. I'm not sure what they're called
by the game, but Giant works well enough for me.Health - Medium-High
Power - High
Threat - High
Abilities - Stealing, axe-throwing
Annoyance - Twice as annoying as the thieves because they are actually 
dangerous :(.
Other notes - This is a very annoying foe, yet one that's very good to fight.
They steal your items, just like the regular thieves. The main difference is
that their hiding place is hard to find, and tend to change for each giant. So,
you really don't want your items stolen. That aside, they also hit pretty hard.
If you haven't trained your characters to much they could easily be killed by
these buggers. Third, they throw axes that also hit pretty hard. This isn't to
bad though, since you get an extra axe and that's worth a lot of money. These
are great for getting tons of money. Axes sell for a ton of money, and while 
heavy, you have a teleporter star very close (don't sell them in the cheaper
shop). Keep repeating this and you'll have the best armour and weapons money 
can buy.
Drops - 1-2 Axes, bones


-=Minions=-

Description: They look like a flying mine that shoots lightning, oww.
Health - Medium
Power - High
Threat - Medium
Abilities - Shoots Lightning, can be walked through
Other notes - They work pretty much the same as the lightning vortices, but you
can actually kill these things with any weapon, which makes it a lot easier 
then bashing them with the Vorpal Blade.
Drops - None


-=Wraith=-

Description: A ghost in green robes. They fly around and can be walked through.
Health - Medium
Power - Low
Threat - Low-Medium
Abilities - Continuing attack, spectral, can be walked through
Other notes - They aren't particularly powerful, nor do they have a lot of
health. You, do however, need the Vorpal Blade to kill them (it? I only 
actually saw one in the game) or a certain spell. Really not worth your time.
Drops - None


-=Evil Treant=-

Description: Evil, haunted, moving trees. Considering their horrid life 
standards, it's not strange they're mad.
Health - Medium
Power - Medium
Threat - Medium
Abilities - None
Other notes - Just like the Wolves, pretty much, except these hit harder. Yes,
there's sticky ground where you encounter these to, so you need to make sure
you don't get surrounded or you're in for a world of pain.
Drops - Sticks (no way :o)


-=Ghosts=-
Description: A hovering skeleton, that jumps between reality and the spectral
realm.
Health - Low
Power - Medium
Threat - Medium
Abilities - Spectral, disappears after attacking, can be walked through
Other notes - These things pop up, hit, and then disappear. You need to react
quickly if you intend to kill one... not that it's worth a lot.
Drops - None


-=Skeletons=-

Description: Walking skeletons with Machettes. Ouch.
Health - Medium
Power - Medium
Threat - Medium
Abilities - None
Other notes - These things can hit you pretty hard and fast, but they quickly
fall if you hit them hard enough.
Drops - Bones, 2 Machettes.


-=Worms=-

Description: Small worm like things with some claws and a very nasty bite.
Health - Medium
Power - High
Threat - High
Abilities - Strong Poisoning
Other notes - These things bite hard - and the poison is incredibly strong. You
better know the recipe for Cure Poison potions, if you want to survive AFTER
fighting these - the poison hits for a lot over a long time before deluting.
Drops - 3-5 Worm Rounds


-=Numen Monks=-

Description: Monks walking around in a Black robe with yellow and red marks.
Don't play with these things - they are first class mages.
Health - Low
Power - High
Threat - High
Abilities - Various spells, including Poison Cloud
Other notes - These fellows are NOT to be toyed with. As I've said over and 
over, but it can't be stressed enough. They are capable of devastating spells,
and even though they don't have a lot of health (especially if you've trained
your characters a bit), they make up for this by hitting like a speeding train.
Drops - None


-=Numen Monk with Staff=-

Description: A Numen Monk with the Numenstaff - a double edged trident.
Health - Medium
Power - Very high
Threat - Very high
Abilities - Massively powerful fireball
Other notes - You need to get that staff, and there's two ways to get it. One
is to grab it when this guy puts it in the cauldron, the other is to pry it
from his dead, cold hands. They'll try to do the latter, should you take it
from them. You need to kill him quickly so that he doesn't have time to land
those fireballs on you, else you're dead.
Drops - Numen Staff


-=Guardian Minion=-

Description: Much like the normal minion, this looks like a flying mine. The
main differences is in color and power.
Health - Medium
Power - Very high
Threat - Medium
Abilities - Lighting strike (very fast!)
Other notes - These things fire fast, but don't move. Usually, a few hits is
enough to put them down for good.
Drops - None


-=Troll=-

Description: It looks like a hulking troll with a loincloth and a ton of hair.
The first "boss" like creature you encounter.
Health - Very high
Power - Very high
Threat - Very high
Abilities - Poison cloud, can push you backwards
Other notes - This is a nightmare to fight. He hits hard, and has a powerful
spell at his disposal. You can either fight him normally (which, while it takes
a long time, is quite possible and doesn't take nearly as long as fighting the
body guards for the shopkeeprs and also gives you nice training) or use a trap
to kill him off.
Drops - Blood Key


-=Rock Monster=-

Description - A cyclop made out of rock. They appear friendly at first...
Health - Low
Power - Low
Threat - Low
Abilities - Throwing Pyro
Other notes - When you first encounter them, they appear friendly. Some later
turn hostile, but not all. They seem to throw Pyro at you even though they are
not hostile later... very odd. Attacking any of the non hostile ones will make
ALL of them hostile.
Drops - None (any Pyro they drop, they picked up)


-=Flame Elemental=-

Description - It's a bouncing fireball with eyes and arms.
Health - Unknown
Power - Very High
Threat - Very High
Abilities - Suicide Explosion
Other notes - You'll find these by the Blue Gem veins. They spawn when you come
close to one of the small lava holes, and they explode once they stand on the 
same spot as you. If you're quick you can dodge the explosion, by watching when
it's about to explode and taking one step to the side. The explosion hurts a
whole lot, though.
Drops - None


-=Imp=-

Description - A small, green thing. It's only got one eye.
Health - Medium
Power - Very high
Threat - Very high
Abilities - Presses fireball buttons AND is to low to be hit by them
Other notes - A pain to fight, because he presses the buttons that causes 
fireballs to erupt towards you. They turn at all the blue rain squares, so
there are safe areas, but the best way to deal with this one is to freeze time
and smash him to pieces before he can do anything.
Drops - Magikal box, Fire bomb


-=Lizard Men=-

Description - A semi-crawling lizard that has a bow.
Health - High
Power - High
Threat - High
Abilities - Shoots Slaying Arrows
Other notes - These things are among the last new enemies you'll face. They can
pack quite a bunch and are never alone, so you'll have to get used to fighting
a whole bunch of them. Does net you some Slaying Arrows if they haven't wasted
them all.
Drops - Slaying Arrows (Most of the time)


-=Upgraded Minion=-

Description - Looks just like the regular minion, but looks can be deceiving...
Health - High
Power - Very High
Threat - High
Abilities - Shoots Lighting
Annoyance - The most annoying enemy in the game
Other notes - They shoot faster, move faster, hit significantly harder then 
their lesser bretheren. They keep spawning, to. You better get used to fighting
them.
Drops - None


-=Dragoth=-

Description - Huge, blue with a red tabard and big teeth.
Health - Ultra High
Power - Very High
Threat - Very High
Abilities - Summons Minions, Poison Cloud, Fire Ball, more random spells...
Other Notes - The last boss of the game. There's a few things you need to pay
attention to when fighting him.

1. Make sure you are not burdened by anything. If you move slowly, he'll have a
bigger chance of hitting you and you do not want that to happen.
2. Dodge the minions, and only kill them if there's to many of them for you to
be able to dodge them.
3. Avoid his spells and fields he creates, because they hurt a lot.
4. Be quick about drinking potions and drink all the stat boosting ones you 
have before you cross the bridge to him.
5. Stay away from the edges - he can push you down without touching you 
physically.

Once you beat him, you beat the game. W00t ^_^.
Drops - None



===== 5.0 ITEMS, ARMOUR, WEAPONS AND SUCH ======================================

There's a fair bit of items to pick up in Dungeon Master II. There's also a 
good and healthy amount of spells. Most of the numbers and such are gathered by
using a tool called DM2AE which I got from the Dungeon Master Encyclopedia. 
All values are listed as Buy/Sell. 1 means the first town, 2 means the town by 
the Giants, 3 means the Magician by the graveyard.

C means copper, S means Silver, G means Gold, Gr means Green Gem, R means Red
Gem and B means Blue Gem.

All of these items are sold at the pub. Some can be picked up at various
places, listed by each item. All of these prices, unless noted, are only in the
first town.

50% of the max. One for each member should be enough. Can be filled at any
wall mounted fountain.
Weight (Empty) - 0,9

Dead Bat - A dead bat, quite literary. Replenishes 250 Food points, but is easy
to acquire and cheap.
Value - 4/3 (1S/3C)
Drops from bats.


     5.2 Armour

Ah, armour. No one can survive without armour. The game, when you look at an 
item, only lists it's defense power, but there seems to be something called
sharp resistance involved aswell (probably against arrows or something). Some
armour also gives you other nice bonuses. Type means where you can buy it -
