    First off, I would like to thank you for reading this guide. This guide will 
    cover how to get every Stone Dragon, Jade Dragon, and Gold Dragon in Tomb 
    Raider II. There are three secrets in the first 16 level, which means there are 
    forty-eight secrets in the entire game. The Dragon's Lair and Home Sweet Home 
    have no secrets.

    |2. Story|
    ^~^~^~^~^~
    Legend has it that when you drive the Dagger of Xian into your heart, you 
    acquire the power of the dragon. Literally.
    
    In Ancient China, the Emperor was the holder of this power and with his army 
    alongside him, he was a force to be reckoned with. Thus empowered, he staked 
    claim to the vast lands that are now China.
    
    His final battle however ended in defeat. While people fell into submission all 
    around him, the warrior monks of Tibet would not relent and courageously fought 
    against the evil. Knowing the power of the dagger, they succeeded in removing 
    it from the Dragon Emperor's heart, reducing him and his army to carnage. The 
    dagger was returned to its resting place within The Great Wall and safely 
    locked up for all time...
    
    Now three parties hold the dagger close to their heart, and all for entirely 
    different reasons.
    
    Lara Croft, forever the adventurer, is one of these. During her adventure, she 
    will encounter the other two...

    Level 1: The Great Wall
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    Right at the beginning of the level, run forward and into the water. Follow the 
    wall around a corner to the left. Climb up the ledge then run forward. Now you 
    will have to jump to a platform to the left. Walk to the edge then press Square 
    and jump forward. Turn slightly to the right and jump to the next ledge. Follow 
    the wall along until you come to a ledge that you have to climb up. Turn around 
    and hold down L1. Look straight forward and you should see the ledge that you 
    have to jump to. But if you look closer you should spot another ledge farther 
    back. That is where the first secret is. Now run and jump to the ledge. Climb 
    up then walk over to the wall then turn right and walk to the edge. Do a 
    running jump to get over the gap. On the ledge will be the Stone Dragon.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    After you reach the gatehouse, you will pass through several rooms 
    until you fall through a hole. At the bottom of the hole will be a long 
    hall with a wall of spikes at each end. Quickly run to the other side 
    of the room and climb through the hole in the wall. I suggest you save 
    right now. After you decide whether to save or not, look down the hall. 
    On the left side of the wall are three blades that will swing back then 
    close. Also the floor will collapse. Run down the hall and dodge the 
    blades. At the end of the hall is a corner. Right around the corner is 
    the Dragon. Quickly grab the dragon before the two walls of spikes turn 
    Lara into a shish kebab.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    This Dragon is right at the end of the level, and is very easy to pass up. 
    Right at the end of the level, you will come to a huge open cavernous area with 
    a zip line. Walk over to the edge, under the zip line, and then turn around. 
    Press down and hold X. Lara will grab the ledge, and you should spot a huge 
    opening in the wall. Shimmy all the way to the left and drop down the ledge. 
    Now vault up (up + X). Hold down X then shimmy all the way to the right. Climb 
    up into the opening. Take a few steps forward then turn left and run down the 
    hall. At the end of the hall, grab the climbable wall. Now climb to the right 
    then climb down the very, very long wall. After climbing down, run forward and 
    around a corner. Run forward until you come to a green room. Now turn right and 
    run forward. While running forward, a T-Rex will charge towards you. Just keep 
    on running. Do not stop to fight the T-Rex. At the other side of the room, is 
    an opening, which contains the Gold Dragon. Now this dragon is guarded by two 
    T-Rexes. The best way to fight them is to run forward to lure them towards you 
    then down to jump back into the opening. The T-Rexes can not reach you in the 
    opening. Their heads can fit right into the opening of the small room, but if 
    you are back enough then they will not be able to touch you.
    
    Reward: small medi pack, two clips of Grenade Launcher ammo, and a Grenade 
    Launcher.
    
    
    Level 2: Venice
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    After opening the door to the boat house, get in the boat and leave the 
    boathouse. Turn right and go forward through the opening. Right after going 
    through the opening get close to the right wall and stay by the right wall. In 
    the right wall, there will be an opening. Get out of the boat and climb into 
    this opening to find the Stone Dragon.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    Right after getting the Stone Dragon, go and get in the boat again. Now go 
    through the opening and follow the path until you go over a waterfall. Now stop 
    the boat then get out. Dive all the way down to the bottom and search the 
    ground for the Gold Dragon.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    At the end of the level, there is a room that contains a switch that opens up 
    the exit gate. Right across from the switch is two ramps: a small ramp and a 
    long wall. Climb up the long wall. At the top of the ramp, is a small room. 
    Turn slightly to the right and go forward then climb up onto the table and grab 
    the Jade Dragon.
    
    Reward: 4 clips of automatic pistol ammo.
    
    
    Level 3: Bartoli's Hideout
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    After flipping the first switch in Bartoli's Hideout (this switch is guarded by 
    three statues that swing their swords up and down), go back to the first room. 
    To the left of the entrance, is a climbable wall. Walk over to the climbable 
    wall. Now jump up and hold X until you grab the climbable wall. Now climb up 
    and to the right. Go through the opening then run and jump to the red awning. 
    Hold down X to grab the edge of the red awning. Shimmy all the way to the left 
    then climb up and do a back flip. Turn left and do a running jump to the 
    platform. Hold X to grab the edge of the platform then climb up. Run forward 
    and jump to the red awning then quickly jump to the brown roof. Press and hold 
    X to grab the ledge then release X to fall on a ledge below. Lara should take a 
    little damage in the fall.  Turn around and run forward then turn right. Run 
    and jump to the opening. Go up the stairs and take care of the dogs that 
    attack. At the top of the stairs, go through the opening into the next room. 
    Take care of the man that attacks. Stop right after going through the opening. 
    Turn to the left and run into the wall. Now look closely at the wall to the 
    left. There is a hidden switch. Pull the switch then run through the opening 
    that you used to enter the room. Take care of the man that attacks then go 
    through the opening he came from. At the end of the opening, turn left and pick 
    up the dragon.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    When you reach the big room with three chandeliers, quickly kill the dogs and 
    man. Run to the ledge to the left right after you enter the room. Climb up the 
    ledge then shoot out the windows. Run forward and jump and into the water.  
    Swim forward and look for an opening in the right wall. Swim through the 
    windows. Shortly after swimming through the windows, watch for an opening in 
    the floor to the left. Swim down and through the opening. Right after going 
    through the opening, turn to the right and swim forward. Keep swimming forward 
    until you spot an opening to the left in the wall. Swim through this opening. 
    Keep swimming forward until you hit a wall. In the corner to Lara's left is 
    some grenade launcher ammo and in the corner to Lara's right is the Gold 
    Dragon.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    At the end of the level, after passing through the library, you will come to 
    the final area of the level. There is a huge building and on the ledge directly 
    opposite of the building is a detonator. DO NOT USE THE DETONATOR. If you do, 
    you will miss the last secret. Instead, climb the ledge to the left of the 
    detonator and turn left then run forward and climb up the ledge at the end. 
    Climb up to the roof and shoot out the windows. Run through the window and grab 
    the Jade Dragon that is sitting on the bed.
    
    Reward: 4 boxes of shotgun ammo.
    
    
    Level 4: Opera House
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    After you open the hole in the stage floor, drop down through the opening in 
    the stage floor. (The switch that opens the opening in the stage floor is 
    located in the room to the right of the stage. Just climb up the ledges and 
    follow the very straight forward path to the switch.) After you drop through 
    the hole on the stage floor, you will land in water. Swim forward and go 
    through the first opening to the left. Follow the short hall to the next room. 
    Go left and around the corner. Go forward then swim through the door. Swim 
    forward until you hit a wall. To the right will be an opening. Swim through the 
    opening and follow the path until you hit the Stone Dragon and a dead end.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    After fixing the relay box, you can use the elevator. Go around the corner to 
    the left of the relay box to find the elevator. Pull the switch then wait for 
    the elevator to go down. Wait for the elevator to go down some then hit the 
    switch again. Now run forward and fall on to the top of the elevator. Once the 
    elevator comes to a stop, climb up the ledge then walk forward to find the Gold 
    Dragon. The Gold Dragon is surrounded by broken glass. The shards will hurt 
    Lara if you do not walk through them.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    In one part of the level, you will have to go through an air duct. Once you 
    climb up the last ledge in the air duct, you will spot a room with a brown box. 
    Turn around and look up. Jump to the ledge and climb up. At the end of the 
    duct, are the Jade Dragon and a fan. If you get to close to the fan, it will 
    kill Lara. So walk cautiously to the Jade Dragon then pick it up.
    
    
    
    Level 5: Offshore Rig
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    This dragon is very easy to spot. Right at the beginning of the level, there is 
    a giant fan under the water. Behind the fan is the Jade Dragon. To get the Jade 
    Dragon, pull the switch right by the fan to the left. Then go through the 
    opening to the right of the fan. The only safe way to get by the fan is to turn 
    around and swim past the two oil barrels on the ground. Then swim over to the 
    wall and follow the wall to the opening. Follow this passage to a room. To the 
    left is a lever. Pull the lever. Now follow the path until you until you come 
    to a switch that opens up a hatch on the bottom of the plane. Jump into the 
    water and go through the hatch. Climb up into the plane then run forward and 
    hit the switch. Now leave the same way you entered. Swim all the way to the 
    opening by the fan. Swim down through the opening and stop at the corner. Now 
    swim through the opening in the floor. Follow the path to the Jade Dragon.
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    After you pass through the room with beds, you will come to a room with two 
    gray blocks in the wall and a climbable wall. The only problem is that the 
    climbable wall is blocked by fire. Pull both blocks out. Now go to the right 
    side of the block on the right. Grab the block then pull it back. Now go into 
    the opening behind the left block. Push the block forward once. Climb up onto 
    the block then jump to the ladder and climb all the way up. At the top, follow 
    the hall around a corner. Take care of the man. Then run forward and stop at 
    the stairs at the end of the hall. On the left wall will be another climbable 
    wall. Climb up the wall. At the top, turn around and jump to the dragon.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    The Gold Dragon is located by the green pass card. After getting the green pass 
    card, turn around and run forward. Stop at the edge then turn around. Now drop 
    down (by pressing Down) to land right by the Gold Dragon.
    
    
    
    Level 6: Diving Area
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    Near the beginning of the level, you will come to a room with a huge slanted 
    wall. Walk to the edge and look down. The dragon is in the opening below. Line 
    Lara up with the hole then turn around and press Down to slide down and land 
    right by the dragon in the hole.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    After using the machine chip, you will come to a room with a pool of water in 
    the middle of the room. In this same room, a man with a flamethrower and a few 
    other enemies will attack. From the entrance of this room, run forward and 
    follow the ledge to the left. While following this path, you should hear a 
    clicking noise. Turn around and run forward and stop at corner. There will be a 
    door to the left. Run through this door and hit the switch at the end. Turn 
    around and run forward. Jump into the water and dive all the way down to the 
    dragon.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    This dragon is right at the end of the level. When you enter the last room, 
    walk over to the edge and kill the two men.   Now turn around and press Down. 
    Press and hold X to grab the ledge. Shimmy all the way to the left. Drop down 
    to the floor and go through the opening to the left to find the Gold Dragon.
    
    
    Level 7: 40 Fathoms
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    After you pull the switch (that drains the water), turn around and run forward. 
    Run around the corner then run forward and around another corner. Now run over 
    to the hole and drop down.  Run over to the opening and climb up the ledge to 
    reach the opening. Take a few steps forward then climb up the smaller ledge to 
    the right. Turn to the left then look up. Now jump up to the ledge. Turn around 
    and do a running jump to the platform. Once you land on the platform, vault up 
    to the ledge. Run forward and drop into the room. Take care of the man then run 
    over to the other side of the room by following the walls, but do not run 
    through the middle of the room. The floor opens up once you run across it.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    Shortly after the Stone Dragon, you will come to a hallway with several pipes 
    on the floor. Take a few steps forward then turn to the left and run into the 
    wall. Now look to the left for a switch. Pull this switch then turn around. Run 
    down the hall and jump over the pipes along the way. At the end of the hall, go 
    left and go through the opening. Run forward and fall through the hole. Swim 
    down and follow the path until you leave the ship. Quickly swim to the left 
    until you spot the dragon.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    Later in the level, you will come to a vertical room that you have to swim to 
    the top of. At the top of the room is a switch. Pull the switch then swim all 
    the way back down to the bottom and go through the new opening. Right after you 
    go through the opening to the right will be the Gold Dragon.
    
    
    
    Level 8: Wreck of the Maria Doria
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    Shortly into the level, you will land in a room where several men will start 
    attacking you. After taking care of them, run through the opening. Stop at the 
    entrance of the next room. Turn to the left to spot a chair. Jump behind the 
    chair then look up to spot an opening. Jump up to the ledge then climb up. Run 
    down the hall. Near the end of the hall a guy with a shotgun will attack you. 
    Take care of him then drop down into the hole. Run forward to get the Stone 
    Dragon.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    Not too far after the Stone Dragon, you will come to a room with a collapsible 
    floor. Take a step forward then jump back. The whole room should start shaking. 
    A few barrels will roll past the opening on the other side of the collapsible 
    floor. Now cross the collapsible floor then turn right and run up the ramp. At 
    the top of the ramp, vault up to the ledge. Two barrels will start rolling 
    towards you. Quickly press Down and hold X to grab the ledge. Wait for the 
    barrels to pass by then climb up and run down the hall to the dragon.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    Near the end of the level, you will come to the steering room. Right after the 
    steering room, you will have to get in the water and swim outside. Once you get 
    in the water, swim straight forward. Follow the path straight forward for a 
    while until you hit a wall. Once you hit the wall, swim up and into an opening. 
    Climb out of the water and grab the dragon.
    
    
    
    Level 9: Living Quarters
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    From the start of the level, swim forward through the opening then turn to the 
    left and swim forward. Pull the switch then turn around and swim forward. Swim 
    forward until you hit a wall. Swim up and climb out of the water. Run forward 
    and take care of the man that charges you. Now run around the corner to reach 
    the engine room. Run forward and climb up the ledge. Now vault up to the next 
    ledge then run forward. Now run forward and fall down to ground level. Turn 
    left and run forward until you reach a wall. Turn right and run through the 
    opening. Fall down into the hole then take a step forward. Take care of the two 
    men that attack. Run forward to the opening then stop. When you reach the 
    opening, take a single step forward then press Down. A few barrels will come 
    rolling by. Take care of the guy that appears after the barrels pass. Go 
    through the opening then run down the hall to the left. Run to the ramp and 
    stop about mid-ramp. Turn to the right. Now line Lara up for a running jump to 
    the wall. You want to run and jump forward. Press and hold X so Lara will grab 
    the ledge. Once you grab the ledge, shimmy all the way to the right. Once you 
    shimmy all the way right, drop down and flip the switch. The switch will be to 
    Lara's right, right after you drop down. After flipping the switch, vault up to 
    the ledge then run forward. Turn to the right and run forward. Now climb up the 
    wall. Turn right and run down the hall. At the end of the hall, will be a hole 
    and a switch. Flip the switch then fall down the hole, and you will end up back 
    in the engine room. Run forward and climb up the ledge then vault up the next 
    ledge. Now turn to the left and jump to the platform. Now you want to jump to 
    the next platform then jump to the third platform. Then jump to the last 
    platform. Once you reach the fourth platform, walk to the edge and turn 
    slightly to the right until you see a ledge with the dragon. Now line up Lara 
    for a running jump. Once you all ready, do a running jump to the platform.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    Near the middle of the level, you will come to an area where the floor is made 
    of wood. In the first room with the wooden floor, there will be an opening in 
    the right wall. A man with a wrench will come out of this opening and attack 
    you. Run through the opening to the right, and you should spot a hole in the 
    floor. Walk to the edge of the hole. Make sure that you have a wall to your 
    left. If you line up on the other edge, you will miss the jump. Once you are at 
    the edge, jump forward and hold X to grab the ledge. Climb up then run down the 
    hall. At the end of the hall, will be a collapsible floor. Get on top of the 
    collapsible floor and fall down. When you hit the ground, run forward to find 
    the Gold Dragon.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    Right after getting the Gold Dragon, walk down the hall. If you run you will 
    take damage from the shards. At the end of the hall, climb up the ledge. Run 
    down the hall then at the end of the hall turn right and run forward. Then turn 
    right and run around another corner and run down the path until you hit another 
    corner. This time turn left and run down the path. Lara will slide down a ramp. 
    At the bottom, turn left and run to the edge of the small pool. Take care of 
    the catfish in the water before you get in the water. Once in the water, stand 
    on top of the collapsible floor and wait for it to collapse. After the floor 
    collapses, swim down and swim through the small hall until you reach an open 
    area. Once you reach the open area, swim straight down to spot the dragon.
    
    
    Level 10: The Deck
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    Shortly after the beginning of the level, you will come to an open area with a 
    small raft sitting in the middle of the water. Jump into the water and dive 
    down to the bottom of the floor then swim forward until you hit the dragon. 
    Also do note that the water is full of sharks and scuba divers with harpoon 
    guns.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    Not to far after the Stone Dragon, you will get to the highest level on the 
    deck. Run all the way to the front of the deck. Stop at the edge and look down. 
    You should spot a pool. Turn around and press Down. Quickly press and hold X to 
    grab the ledge. Now climb up and aim at the guy with the flamethrower. Once you 
    take care of him, jump into the pool. You should notice that one of the walls 
    in the pool is a lighter color. Swim towards the lighter colored wall and it 
    should start to open. Quickly surface and climb out of the pool. Take care of 
    the fish. A scuba diver will swim out from behind the lighter colored wall. 
    Take care of the scuba diver then jump back into the pool. Swim through opening 
    to find the dragon.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    After you get the Gold Dragon, turn around and swim through the opening. Once 
    out of the opening, swim straight up. When you surface, turn around and climb 
    out of the pool. Now run forward and fall off the edge to land on the floor 
    below.  Now turn left and follow the path to an edge. Do not stop at the edge 
    between the two rails. Instead go to the edge to the left of the railing. You 
    should see a platform. Line Lara up with the platform then do a running jump to 
    the platform.  Now walk to the edge of the platform and line up for another 
    running jump. Do a running jump to the next platform. Hold X so Lara will grab 
    the ledge then climb up. Once you climb up, you should see an orangish roof in 
    front of you. Do not jump to it. Instead turn to the right and walk to the 
    edge. You should spot an opening with the dragon. Stop at the edge then line up 
    with Lara opening then do a running jump. Press and hold X so Lara will grab 
    the ledge. Shimmy to the right then climb up into the opening. Once you climb 
    up hold R1 so Lara will walk and take no damage from the shards.
    
    
    
    Level 11: Tibetan Foothills
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    When you reach the shed, near the beginning of the level, take care of the 
    enemies. Walk over to the snow mobile then turn to the south east and you 
    should spot a gate. Run over to the gate. The dragon will be sitting in front 
    of the gate.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    After you have been riding the snow mobile for a while you will come to a huge 
    open area with a ramp straight in front of you. There are two open areas. The 
    secret is at the second huge open area. Get off the snow mobile then run over 
    to the ramp. Walk over to the right edge of the ramp and you should spot a 
    ledge. Do a running jump to the ledge. Run forward to find the dragon.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    This one is located right near the end of the level. After you flip the switch 
    in the shed, exit the shed and head left. Run through the opening. Follow the 
    path around a corner and fall down into the next room. A guy driving a snow 
    mobile will attack you. Once you have taken care of him, get on his snow 
    mobile. Drive forward until you come to an opening. To the right is a pit, 
    which contains the dragon. But first you have to cross the pit. To do this, 
    drive the snow mobile along the left wall. Examine the left wall first, and you 
    should spot a flat spot where you can drive the snow mobile onto. Once you do 
    this, drive straight across the small ledge. Now once you have passed the pit, 
    get off the snow mobile and turn around. Walk to the edge of the pit. Turn 
    around and press Down. Hold X so Lara will grab the ledge. Now climb down the 
    wall. At the very bottom of the pit is the dragon. DO NOT GRAB IT! Once you hit 
    the ground hit jump and left to do a side jump. Wait for all the boulders to 
    pass by before you attempt to get the dragon.
    
    
    Level 12: Barkhang Monastery
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    This dragon is very easy to pass by without even noticing. You will eventually 
    come to a long trap filled hallway. The first trap will be fire. Walk over to 
    the fire and it will go out. There are two spiked logs swinging back and forth. 
    Quickly drop into the hole before you get hit. Now run forward until you hit a 
    wall. DO NOT CLIMB UP. Instead do a back flip and you should land on the ledge 
    behind you. Wait for the rolling blade to pass by then quickly jump forward. 
    Now run forward then drop into the hole while dodging two more swinging spiked 
    logs. Run to the end of the path. Do a back flip to land on the ledge behind 
    you. Now wait for the rolling blade to pass then jump forward. Do not run into 
    the next room. Here comes the hard part. First thing, save. Now pull out a 
    flare. Turn around and wait for the rolling blade to roll past Lara then run 
    through the opening to the right. Run down the hall and through the last 
    opening on the left. Now save, again. Now you have to pass through a door that 
    opens and close. If you hit the door, you will either take major damage or Lara 
    will die. Time your run through the door so you will get through unharmed. Now 
    turn left and you will spot another opening and closing door. You should also 
    spot the dragon. Time your run through the door then grab the dragon.
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    Right after getting the Jade Dragon, run through the doors. Now the best way to 
    get past the rolling blade is to wait for it to pass. Run down the hall and 
    duck into the opening to the right. Wait for the blade to pass then quickly run 
    towards the opening to the left. After you pass the blade, run into the next 
    room. Turn left and run up the ramp. Follow the ramp until you come to a room 
    filled with water. When you hit the water, turn to the north east and swim 
    straight forward until you hit the wall. Look carefully and you should spot the 
    opening in the wall. The opening is located directly in the north east corner 
    of the room. Swim through the opening and follow the passage to the Stone 
    Dragon. 
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    This dragon is also another easy one to past up. Near the end of the level, you 
    will have to climb on top of the giant statue. To get on top of the statue, go 
    to the room with the statue. Run to the right wall and follow the wall. Pass by 
    the first opening, but go into the second opening. In this opening, is a very, 
    very tall wall. Climb up all the way. Now follow the path until you reach a 
    ledge. Walk to the edge then do a running jump straight forward. Hold down X so 
    Lara will grab the hand. Climb up onto the hand. Walk forward and to the edge 
    of the hand. Turn slightly to the right and jump to the shoulder. Turn around 
    and walk forward and climb up ledge. Now turn around and walk to the edge. Do a 
    running jump towards the head. Hold down X so Lara will grab the edge then 
    climb up onto the head. Walk forward until you reach the edge. Turn around and 
    press Down. Hold X to grab the ledge then let go of X to drop down safely. Now 
    turn to left and walk to the edge. For this next part, make sure you have a lot 
    of health. Turn around and press Down. Press and hold X to grab the ledge. Now 
    let go of the ledge. Lara will fall down to the ground and take quite a bit of 
    damage. Now turn to the left and walk to the edge of the ramp. Jump towards the 
    ramp. When you land on top of the ramp, turn right and climb up the ledge to 
    find the dragon.
    
    
    Level 13: Catacomb of the Talian
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    At the beginning of the level, jump to the left of the stairs and run down the 
    path to dodge the icicles. Now run through the door and stop. Turn to the left 
    and run forward. Jump up and grab the ledge. Now shimmy all the way to the 
    right and climb up. Run forward and drop down to find the dragon.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    Near the end of the level, you will go into a building that is really dark and 
    has about four or five yetis in it. After you flip the switch in the building, 
    leave and you will be ambushed by three men. Take care of the men then run past 
    the ramp that leads up to the closed door. Climb up to the ledge (that is to 
    the left of the ramp) then jump to the opening in the wall. Climb up into the 
    opening then run straight forward. After you pass through the opening, quickly 
    side jump to the left and wait for the boulders to pass by. Once they have 
    passed by, run across the bridge and walk over to the edge. Now do a running 
    jump to the ladder then climb all the way up. Once at the top, run forward then 
    jump up the slanted rock. Run forward and fall through the hole. Lara will drop 
    down and land in water. Once you land in the water, turn to the left and swim 
    through the opening in the wall. Wade through the swallow water then swim 
    forward and go around the corner. Now surface then climb up onto the ledge to 
    the right. Look up and look for the ladder. Now line Lara up under the ladder 
    then jump up and hold X to grab the ladder. Climb up to the top then run 
    forward to find the dragon.
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    At the end of the level, you will come to a room with two closed doors. You 
    should notice that there are two tiles on the floor that look different. Run 
    across the tile closest to the door on the left. The door will open. Quickly 
    jump into the opening then walk forward. Turn to the right and walk through the 
    spikes. Walk over to the wall and climb up the wall. At the top of the wall, 
    turn to the right to find the Gold Dragon.
    
    
    Level 14: Ice Palace
    
    Gold Dragon
    
    This one is located in the first room of the level. In the first room, use the 
    bounce pads to jump higher. Jump all the way to the highest level. Once you 
    reach the highest level, pull the switch then jump down. This will have 
    released several yetis. Take care of the yetis. Once you have taken care of 
    them, turn to the right and look for an opening in the wall. Jump to the 
    opening. A yeti will run towards you. Take care of him. Now run over to the 
    wall and go to the spot directly across from the opening you just jumped 
    through. Press X to grab the wall. If Lara does not grab the wall, you are most 
    likely in the wrong spot. The part of the wall that she can grab is located 
    directly across from the opening. Once you grab the wall, press Down to pull 
    the block out of the wall. Let go of the block then run to the right side of 
    the block and push the block forward to uncover a passage. Run through the 
    opening and run forward. Do not worry about falling because the platform is 
    invisible. So run straight forward and climb up the ledge to get the dragon.
    
    Stone Dragon
    
    Shortly after the first room, you will come to a room with a block to the left 
    (which has flares on top) and several holes on the right side of the room. Run 
    into the room then stop. A yeti will attack you from the opening on the other 
    side of the room. After taking care of the yeti, climb up the ledge and run 
    forward. Now turn to the left and climb up the ledge. Turn around and do a 
    running jump forward. Now turn to the right and go through the opening. Follow 
    the short path to the dragon.
    
    Jade Dragon
    
    The Jade Dragon is located in the last room of the level. When you drop into 
    the room, Lara will land in front of a gong. Hit the gong then turn around. Now 
    run towards the north west corner of the room. You should see a ladder going 
    down the wall. Jump and grab the ladder then climb down. When you reach the 
    bottom, turn to the right and press down to drop down over the ledge. Now press 
    down twice to drop down over another ledge. Lara should land in front of a 
    switch. Pull the switch then climb up the ledge then climb up the next ledge. 
    Now climb up the ladder. Once you reach near the top of the ladder, do a back 
    flip. Now turn around and take a few steps forward. Turn to the right and run 
    straight forward until you see a small building to your right. Go through the 
    door then jump to the Jade Dragon.

    the dagger, the floor will give out. This will send Lara down and she will 
    slide down a ramp. When Lara reaches the end of the ramp, she will fall and 
    slide down another ramp. At the end of this ramp, will be another ramp. At the
