As a result of this fact, I have endeavoured to make version 1.0 the biggest and best and most comprehensive walkthrough that I can make it. I have tried to address all the questions that I get on a regular basis via email as well as a lot of other things. I know that (particularly) the Magic School and the Skills bit are not all that they could be, but I just haven't had the time to go through and physically cover everything that there is to cover. My requests for information to Buka Entertainment as regards several aspects of the game have gone unanswered WHERE'S THE CUSTOMER SERVICE PEOPLE? This is what it is. If you need to contact me, I won't refuse to answer your questions, however, I have changed my email address listed. The sum of what I know about this game has been poured into this walkthrough, and if something isn't here, it's because I don't know the answer to it. Apart from that, I have simply stopped playing Spells of Gold, through a lack of time and changing interests, and my new xbox. Going back and writing this even now has been a bit of a challenge. I have put a large number of hours into making this walkthrough, especially the World Encyclopaedia, and I hope it is useful to people. I wish you all the very best with this game, and with this Walkthrough. +---------------------------+ +---GENERAL HINTS SECTION---+ +---------------------------+ *** READ THE MANUAL *** This may seem like an obvious tip, but as a person who tends to barge into games without reading the manual, I found myself having to revisit this document. While there isn't a great deal of background information contained in it, there is a lot of detailed information about how to survive in the world. *** HOW TO BECOME A MAGE *** This isn't covered in the manual, regretably, and I blame the developers for this oversight. I'm not bitter, but it has been the subject of 99.9% of the emails I have recieved about the game. In order to buy spells, and thus become a mage, go to a magic school, such as Osgard in Vayon, and click on the STUDY button. Then push the TAB button to access the available spells. Click on them to buy them. When you get outside a town, push the S button, select the spell you want and click on it. To cast a spell, aim at an enemy, and right click on them. It's as simple as that. *** SAVE EARLY SAVE OFTEN *** I know this is another fairly obvious tip, but I found it easy to forget. Because there is no auto-save feature, unlike many other games in this genre, when you step outside a town, you never know what you might run into. Also because of the at-times odd combat system, you may find yourself losing large amounts of health points. Saving often is especially important early in the game, because you have relatively weak armour, and it is easy to die. *** TAKE NOTE OF IMPORTED/EXPORTED GOODS *** Learn what goods are inexpensive in certain towns, and can be sold for higher prices in others. Speaking to the merchants in towns will often provide useful information, about what is cheap, and what will sell well. Take care that you buy goods that will not deteriorate while you travel. The best advice is the principle of trading on the stock market: Buy low, sell high. Although it may only make you a small profit when dealing in small quantities as you make more money, you will be able to increase your profits. *** FILL EM UP *** When you are buying goods to trade, attempt to buy them in multiples of your bag space. So if a slot holds 8, then you should buy 8, 16, 24, 32 and so on. You may not be able to empty a shop of their goods, or fill up all your slots, but it is more efficient this way. If you buy goods in different lots and cities, they will start in a separate slot. You should attempt to fill as many of your bag slots as you can before travelling to another world. *** TAKE NOTE OF WEAPON/ARMOUR STATS *** Although various types of weapons share the same name, they are made of different materials, and thus, they have different damage, and durability statistics. Eventually I hope to write a better description of what are the best materials here. As a kind of a corrolary to this, the better the quality of the goods, the higher price they will bring when you sell them. As you progress through the game, some things will simply not be worth the trouble of picking them up. If you run over your weight limit, it will force you to walk extremely slow, which is a really big pain in the butt. This is to be avoided at all costs. *** DON'T BOTHER WITH TOWN ENTRANCE PATENTS *** You will quickly learn that despite the small distances on the maps, travelling takes a very long time to get anywhere useful. As a result of this, buying often expensive patents to trade or enter towns is relatively pointless. You may well only get one or two uses out of them before they expire. This especially applies when you have to travel between worlds in order to trade. The most you will ever pay for entry is 1000 gold, and this town (Drahale on Orafort) is an extremely profitable trading town, so you make it back and much more every time you go there to trade. Tax-Free patents are an absolute must if you are going to sell your goods in a town which has a Mayoralty. If a town doesn't have a Mayor, they won't charge you tax, or demand an entrance fee. You will find yourself in serious debts if you don't get a tax-free patent especially when doing the Faguery->Orafort->Faguery run. (Explained in the Trading section) +---------------+ +--Side Quests--+ +---------------+ At the beginning of the game, your highest priority is making money. This goal will occupy your time for the first few hours of gaming, and the easiest way to accomplish this is doing tasks. These minor quests are important to making money, but do not contribute directly to the main quest. The exception to this rule is that The quests fall under several categories: * Give Letter/Package to Person X in City Y: This sort is the simplest, and pays the worst as a result. Very little danger involved, unless you die of a bad cold. * 'Slightly illegal mission': These pay better than the first kind, and do not involve very much more work. Usually involving talking to another shopkeeper, but later they may involve finding a wandering merchant in a town. NOTE: This will increase your Dark Karma. * I've been Robbed: Often involving a long travel to where a certain person has been robbed, these pay extremely well, and involve killing 3-5 base-level creatures. To complete these missions, you will have to find a chest that contains a purse. The danger with these quests is that in the quest log, it does not say who the purse must be returned to. NOTE: Doing this quest will increase your White Karma. +++ * Bandits are threatening the good people of X: Similar to the previous kind, and paying roughly the same amount, these involve just wiping out a few monsters. A dialogue box will appear to say that there are no more monsters, and you return to collect your reward. NOTE: Doing this quest will likely increase your White Karma. +++ * Person X from Y is producing some documents: These are given out exclusively by Mayors of towns, and also the priests. These are a little more involved fetch and carry quests. You have to go and visit the mentioned person, and then return to the person who gave you the quest to begin with. THESE PAY EXTREMELY WELL! The quid pro quo is that they aren't given out too often. A variation on this is you must go and pick up a business report from another town. * Person X is waiting for me to tell them the prices in this town. This is a one way trip, and they tend to pay pretty well. You are limited to a maximum of 5 quests at a time, and it is advisable to try and keep your quests on the go at the maximum. Often times people will offer you quests to cities where you have other quests. +++ => These are denoted on the map by a skull and crossbones symbol. +--------------------+ +--Vital Statistics--+ +--------------------+ Despite the name of this section, it is more like useless statistics that some folks might be interested in. In the course of my completing the latter 2/3rds of the Light Way quests, I decided to write down the statistics of what I got when I killed bandits, opened chests, and so on. Some of the percentages won't add up, but this is due to my rounding them for the sake of convenience, and the large number of results I had to sit down and figure out. I grouped the enemies under a range of categories: Gnomorons, which includes archers, halberdiers, and normal gnomorons. Dwarves, which includes forest dwarves. Raffels and Goegres, which I grouped together because they were of a similar ilk. Undead, which includes Skeletuns, Zombies, those green guys with sticks, and vampires, and chests. I did not include the Saracens, because I ran out of room, and also I didn't see enough of them that I actually got something from to justify their own category. Further to this, Digons and Grendals don't have anything on them, so I left them out. I'm not entirely certain why I included this section, other than it might help people to have an idea whether it is worthwhile to tackle a fight with a group of bandits, or make a run for it. If I leave a category off, it is because no instances of this occurred. * Gnomorons: Gold: 41% of the time Rings: 3% Amulets: 3% Potions: 8.5% Weapons: 4.7% Armour: 8.5% Nothing: 31% * Dwarves: Gold: 28.4% of the time Rings: 1% Amulets: 1% Potions: 12.3% Weapons: 6.2% Armour: 11% Nothing: 40% * Raffels/Goegres: Gold: 31.75% of the time Amulets: 1.6% Potions: 1.6% Weapons: 8% Armour: 13% Nothing: 44% * Undead: Gold: 45% of the time Potions: 1.7% Weapons: 1% Armour: 1.7% Nothing: 52% * Chests: Rings: 8.75% of the time Amulets: 9.3% Potions: 28% Weapons: 27.5% Armour: 26.25% I hope this provides some completely useless, yet slightly interesting information. +-----------------+ +--Magic Schools--+ +-----------------+ This is an incomplete guide, owing to the fact that lately I just have not had the time to commit to levelling up my mage level in order to access the higher level spells and not withstanding the fact that I had already bought some of the spells, so they do not appear on the following lists. I hope that this gives you a starting point as to what you can get where. I am uncertain of how much longer I can continue to write and support this walkthrough.

As I said in the general hints it is important to take note of the materials which the items are made of, because even though they might have the same name, they can have vastly different stats. As a general rule, Gridal, Celenyth, Astrill, Ellesium and Mithril are the best kind of materials. Although results seem to vary widely. This applies mainly to early game, but it is important to keep an item in every slot you have. Try to have a balance between items that restrict various attributes so you don't lose too much. With magic rings and amulets, when you get a mage-oriented item, you tend to lose statistics like attack, or damage, so watch out for that. It is my considered opinion that two handed weapons are pretty much next to useless.(until you get to the stupidly large damage items, which are only available extremely late) You don't get a whole lot more damage, and you lose a lot of speed in attacking, and you lose the advantage of having a shield. Many of the best weapons and items have stupidly (in my opinion) high requirements which means that you won't be able to use them until late in the game, if at all. To even recieve many of these items I spent many hours levelling up, even though I was effectively finished the game. (Instead of going to the last guy, I left and went levelling) It was my experience, although I never played for more than a few minutes with them, is that using long range weapons such as bows or crossbows is a wasteful method. Sure you can hit enemies from far away, but they just don't have the hitting power to make a real difference. A little segue here, if people are firing arrows at you, try and get another enemy in between yourself and the arrow-chucker. Their arrows will damage anybody they hit, even if they're an enemy.

Weight +50 +----------------------+ +--Character Comments--+ +----------------------+ I don't think that it is possible for anybody to play the game the same way over and over again, and anything I tell you may not be applicable in your game. Instead, I thought I'd write tidbits here that might help you along the way. The beauty of this game that I found, when compared to other games is that you can play all three classes at the same time with relative ease, and they can assist the other aspects of your play. Even if you are playing as a mage, it is useful to give people a few hits with a melee weapon before you try and kill them with magic. To gain mage points, all you need to do is kill the enemy with a spell. It's not expedient to waste manna on trying to take all of an enemy's health down with spells. Despite the wide variety of spells available, I found that very few of them were actually terribly useful. I used a combination of melee attacks, and Magic Flame for quite a while before I changed to another spell. It doesn't really cost you anything (apart from a few thousand gold and some student points, both of which were easy to come by) so I recommend you spend some time trying them out. Spells that do ongoing damage are also good. You don't encounter any enemies who cast spells at you, which is a little bit of a disappointment in the game. There are a few Mage-specific items that start to appear as you level up, although there are ridiculously high requirements to use these, which make them next to useless anyway. They have excellent stats, but are hard to access. A note here about spells: As you level up the spells, you will find some of them become a 'broadside' i.e. they shoot out 3 fireballs, or water balls, or whatever. You will find these are most effective if they are cast at about 2 inches (screen-wise) away from the enemy you want to hit. This decreases the failure of spells, and increases the damage that the enemy will recieve. The situation may dictate that you need to fire them off at point blank range, but try to avoid it where ever possible. You will notice that when you level up, or complete certain quests, you are given a number of Point, which you can assign to different statistics. One annoying aspect of this is that depending on which Class you earn the points in, the different statistics cost different amounts. It is good, in that it indicates which of them are important to which classes. However, if you are trying to meet an item's requirements, it can be incredibly frustrating, especially later in the game. Important Statistics: Warrior: Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, Intelligence (to get student points) Mage: Intelligence, Wisdom, Constitution. Merchant: Charisma. Those are probably the most important for each class, although you can use points for virtually anything. To buy the higher level spells and magic skills you will need enormous amounts of student points, and most of your points from Mage and Merchant levels will be poured into Intelligence. This is why it is important to balance your levels over the course of the game. As regards Rings/Amulets as a Mage/Merchant you need to balance your manna gains (which is probably the most important thing on an item) with health gains and other stats. As a Fighter/Merchant you also need to focus on damage adding items as well as health, and maximum carrying weight (I had one of my rings as a +50 max weight). The goods you carry aren't counted in the weight, but by the time you fill up all the slots on your body, it all starts to add up. *** Skills *** There a range of skills that you can learn at the Fighting Schools, and Magic Schools that are littered around the Worlds. As with the spells, other than the cost of Gold, there is little danger in buying up as many of the skills as you want to. There are some skills which are passive, and do not need to be activated, while others need to be activated, and cost Manna points for every second they are active. Personally, I never used any of these manna-costing skills, and I never had any trouble getting through the game. The most useful skills that I found are: * Trade - You get more space, and more slots in your trade bag. An absolute must-have. * Geography - Faster travel in between towns. * Portal - Faster Travel between worlds. * Martial Arts - Better fighting skills. * Literacy - More student points. * Speech - Not exactly sure what this does, it says it increases "Artful Speech" but... ya never know. * Stamina - Greater carrying weight. * Athletics * Sword/Axe/Mace/Bow/Crossbow - Throw some points this way, across a variety of weapons, because it isn't always possible to use the one class of weapon. Sword & Mace are probably the most useful ones, then Axe. You need to be up to that level in order to upgrade, so there is a certain order you need to go through the various fighting schools. It mostly goes along with the order that you gain access to the worlds, and it's not hard to work out. MONSTROLOGY is an interesting skill, and it shows you how much HP monsters have what they are resistant to, and lots of other bits and pieces. The practicality is that this information is pretty much completely useless. It does tell you that enemies go up in level as your level increases, which is (in my mind) and excuse to only have a small number of enemies in the game, which is kind of sad. +--------------+ +--The Guilds--+ +--------------+ I have sent requests to the assorted publishers/distributors/developers who are listed in the manual requesting more information about the guilds, and whether you can get information about your position in the guild. These have been met with "Please ask Buka" and silence respectively. So here goes. Depending on which side of the game you are playing (Light or Dark) you have the option to join 3 different guilds (of the five). Dark Mages, Mercenaries, and Trade if you are Dark. White Mages, White Warriors, and the Trade guild if you are white. They each have their level requirements (in the various classes) but as long as you meet those, feel free to join as many, or as few as you want to. They don't appear to make a difference as far as the main quest goes, and the rewards are pretty pathetic, but hey. I have only gotten to level three in the guilds, and it takes a heck of a lot of doing quests for the guildmasters in order to get there. The manual points out the different levels, which I have repeated below for the sake of clarity. I think you may need to be a certain Class level as well, but I could be wrong with that, I'm just speculating. I can't really see why you would bother trying to gain all the levels, I think the whole game just isn't long enough to bother with it. A completist might want to go to the trouble of completing all nine levels, but *shrug*. The early level quests are made up of fetch and carry missions, where you have to visit another shopkeeper, give them a message, or pick something up and then return back to base. 1: 0 2: 1000 3: 3000 4: 5000 5: 10000 6: 25000 7: 50000 8: 80000 9: 120000 The Benefits of each of the guilds are roughly the same whether it is Dark or Light. The Warrior/Merc guild provide a repair service. This is very useful, and will probably cost you less (from paying fees) than it would for you to repair all of your armor at an armorer. The Mage Guilds train you in the magic arts. I have no idea what effect this actually has, it doesn't seem to affect your experience. I'm not overly sure with this. The Trade Guild increases the quality of your goods, which is next to useless if you follow the advice in the next section and avoid goods that deteriorate over time. +-----------------+ +--Trading Guide--+ +-----------------+ The more expensive the item (when the city is selling, not when it's buying) the more money you are likely to make off a sale. The following items are the best: Mithril and rubies. There are a couple of trade routes that allow you to take advantage of these. As I said in the general hints, try and fill as many of your slots with the maximum amount of goods you can. If you run out of goods for sale in a store, just travel around the world a bit, and when you come back it should have refilled. :P Check other cities on worlds to see if they also sell the goods you want. It seems like an obvious thing, but always try to sell for more than you bought the goods for. Some places will offer you less, so unless you absolutely need the money, go find another place to sell. *** Early Game *** I found that one of the best routes on Vayon was to carry as much Cheese, and then Mushrooms from Torena to Osgart, (Buy a tax patent here and Zyre) and then carry Beer from Toskeryth to Zyre. Remember: You only pay tax when you SELL goods. Just buy a general trade patent which covers all the cities on that world, and you should be right. If you can't afford a general patent, just pay the tax, or get two patents in Osgard and Zyre. *** Mid-Game *** I recommend that you carry Mithril from Hagebryn and Hidon on the world of Faguery to the city of Uegrah on the world of Howayre. Sell your Mithril, and buy all the Rubies you can, and then take them back to Hagebryn. Rinse and repeat this process and you will make yourself a pretty large amount of money. While this isn't as profitable as the Late-game trade route, it is the best at this point in time. You need to be over a certain level to see both of these worlds, but you shouldn't have to worry about having enough money before this point. *** Late-Game *** The best trade route that I have found and heard about is a variation on the Mid-Game route. Basically you fill up your bags with as much Mithril, and then gold, and then joiners tools as you can fit (in Hagebryn) and cart them to Drahale on the world of Orafort. Sell everything, and then buy as many rubies as you can get, and take them back to Hagebryn. These are by no means the only options, but these are probably the most profitable ones that you can do in a kind of circuit. You can make an incredible amount of gold using these ones, I ended up with around 20 million gold pieces at the end of it, without a lot of trouble, and as your Trade Skill goes up, so you can carry more goods, which lets you make even more money. +-----------------------+ +--World Encyclopaedia--+ +-----------------------+ The world of Lokatrienn is made up of a large number of lands, the basics of which I will cover here. You will find as you gain levels, more lands will become available for you to visit. Others will be displayed as you get certain quests.

Whichever path you choose, you would do well to make regular visits to the temples of these deities. I'm not entirely sure what praying to these Gods actually do, apart from win their favour, and irritate the other deities. I suppose it is important, and can't hurt to try. Praying to a god that is successful, and if they're happy with you they'll give you some healing. You can study various prayers, which will give you various kinds of assistance in battle, such as healing, extra manna, upgrades and so on. To do this you require Grace points, which are gained by donating money (relatively small amounts) and you need to pray regularly at the temple. The different gods grant different powers which are useful for their respective classes. Don't let me stop you using these, but it seems like more of a pain in the butt than anything else. When you pray to one god, you piss off other ones. I never really worried about it. +----------------+ +--The Dark Way--+ +----------------+ +-------------+ +--Chapter 1--+ +-------------+ NOTE: Because all the encounters (apart from certain fixed events) are entirely random, it is not possible for me to specifically say who to talk to. *** The Mystery of Vayon *** Your goal here is two fold, to gain 50 Karma Points (whether in Dark or White), and to solve the mystery of why you can no longer travel to other realms (other than Vayon). To do this, you will need to complete quests, kill people, and raise 10500 gold pieces. When you start off in Zyre, you need to make a decision, firstly whether you will play the role of a Mage, or that of a fighter, and whether you wish to be Good or Evil. For the purposes of this section of the walkthrough, I will use the example of a Evil Fighter. I found it easier to fall into the Dark Path almost by accident. Once you have attained 50 Karma points, you will be approached by a merchant (I gather from the two times I've done this part that it is in the next town you enter) who initiates a cut-scene that tells you of the mystery of Vayon. You are charged with finding out more information about this mystery, but are given no direction as to where to look. To proceed, simply ask the nearest shopkeeper (under Talk, Quests) about The Mystery of Vayon. For a small fee of 500gp, they will tell you that a random shopkeeper will be able to tell you the answer to the mystery. I have tried this several times and it has come up with a different person each time, which leads me to this conclusion. I found that one of the best routes on Vayon was to carry as much Cheese, and then Mushrooms from Torena to Osgart, (Buy a tax patent here and Zyre) and then carry Beer from Toskeryth to Zyre. You can repeat this process as many times as is required. Remember: You only pay tax when you SELL goods so it is only necessary to buy two patents. I recommend that you study in Speech, at least at a basic level. This can be done at the Mage School. By having this skill you can get your 10000gp back from the person who gives you the information about The Teacher. The person complains about it, but their attitude towards you doesn't change. The gist of what he tells you is that long ago some great evil deed was done that caused the Gods to close off the portal in Vayon. He also begins the next part of the quest, called The Teacher. *** The Teacher *** In a random city, when you enter, you will be approached by a merchant with a question mark floating above his head. He tells you that, for a price, he will tell you more information about The Teacher. His price is either: 50000gp, or killing a former business partner of his. I opted to kill his business partner, because I didn't have 50000gp, and I thought it was going to be easier. He marks the place on your map. When you get to the place where you have to kill the man, he will tell you that the man who hired you is a bad man, and begs you not to kill him. I tried this option, but when I returned to Torena, the other man was nowhere in sight. Since I was playing as a Evil person, this didn't worry me particularly, but if you are playing the Light Way, then do the alternative below. The man is a pushover, even at low level. When the deed is done return to Torena and talk to the man. I do confess a sense of irony about how the evil deed that closed the portal in the first place, can be solved by further evil deeds. The man who hired you informs, gleefully, that you killed a man who tried to become richer than he was. He thanks you, and tells you to go and visit a random shop keeper who was a former student of The Teacher. Go and visit the shopkeeper, and he tells you of Haurid the Great Dark Teacher. He says that Haurid may not take you as his student, but that isn't his problem. NOTE: You must be level 4 or above in either Fighter, or Mage to be accepted by Haurid. *** The Dark Way *** When you are above level 4 travel to the place marked Haurid on your map, and talk to the guy walking around the area. He will tell you that he needs to cast a spell to right the wrong, and for this you will need to collect the energies from three types of being. Basically it involves killing a Human, an animal (or beast) and a non-human. He gives you them as separate miniquests, sending you across the land to places marked with a skull & crossbones. The battles are 1 on 1 and aren't terribly difficult by this point (Since you have to be level 4 to get to this stage). When you have completed the three quests, he says he needs a few days to cast the spell. Go visit your nearest town and then come back, and he will be done. When you look at your map next, you will see a new icon called Portal, which is the doorway to the rest of the world. Also mysteriously there are a slew of new towns that didn't appear on your map before. (How odd - ed) Endnote: There is no clear chapters in this game, so I have divided them up into the parts for the sake of clarity. What you do from here is really up to you. I wandered around a few of the different worlds, looking around, trading a lot, getting some better weapons and armour. Although you travel around the world, the creatures are much the same, and the weapons really don't get much better until you wander far away. Allegedly there are over 25 lands on Lokatrienn, but at this point there are only 12 that are available to visit. Each of the different lands has its own style of towns and climate, but this really doesn't affect you. The better trading lands are ones with lots of cities, and the better quest/money making ones are ones with few cities, like Harashie for instance. It wasn't immediately clear what the next step in the game is, and to be honest, I stumbled across the answer more by accident than by design. I had been trading/questing on and off around the place when I decided that I should try asking about my main quest. It so happened that the shop I chose was the one I needed to visit. I have not had time to verify the following steps with my second character, but if it differs for you, please let me know. +-------------+ +--Chapter 2--+ +-------------+ When you are ready to proceed, visit the land of Zar-Di-Rinn, on the far eastern edge of the world map. Travel to the city of Lasguerd, and ask Master Kaleb the Armorer about the Dark Way. He will inform you (for 2000gp) that you should ask in the land of Harashie. Finish up whatever you need to do here, and then travel to Harashie, and visit Shanton and talk to Dan Shanda the Armorer (there seems to be a theme going here) and he will tell you that Minty Khoe in Riugert can help you. Visit Minty, and he will ask that in return for his help along the way, you must retrieve a precious item called the Book of Gones. He tells you that if he knew where it was, then he'd fetch it himself (he must be one of the more motivated of the shopkeepers in Lokatrienn). In short, he wants you to wander all over the world looking for it. By chance the next land that I went looking on was Gore, which happened to be the right land that I was looking for. In the city of Fastaach, the innkeeper (Cheerful Gratt) will tell you about a man to ask about the book in the land of Labordock. On Labordock, in the city of Sunnung, the innkeeper (Towder Okhriman) tells you that Shopkeeper Moe in Doriurs has the book of Gones. Go see him, he will sell it to you, for a small fee. 100000gp (ouch!) By this stage if you have been wheeling and dealing enough, this should be pittance for you. Return to Harashie and give the book to Minty Khoe (in Riugert) will initiate a new cutscreen that explains the origins of the Seven Dark Mages, and the difference between the White (weak) mages, and the Dark (powerful) mages. For the sake of brevity I won't try to summarize it here. (this is the quick and nasty version after all) But he informs you that you need to go and ask about Ialetzet in the land of Cor-Da-Darg. The goose chase continues. Ask in Urg about Ialetzet, and one of the shopkeepers tells you that Ialetzet is in the other city. When you get there, there is a man in a white robe walking around with a question mark over his head. Talk to him, and you will discover that he is an amnesiac and you need to find a way to restore his memory. Ask at a nearby shopkeeper and they will tell you to ask at a black mages guild. Personally, I asked at the guild in Zederlas on Zar-Di-Rinn, and the chancellor said he would tell me for 40,000gp. I bartered him down to 10,000gp (phew). He then informed me of the crazy alchemist on `, who might have a solution. I travelled to Howayre, and in the town of Houmy, the Mayor Itobe Ziemod told me that the Crazy Alchemist was in Zarth. Some people will know what you are looking for, others won't. The person/town here appears to be random. In Zarth you will be met by a man with a ? above his head, the crazy alchemist. He says that he wants you to fetch a book for him, the exact details of this quest I can't remember, but it wasn't terribly difficult. Once you get it, he will make the memory potion, for you to restore Ialetzet with. Return to Cor-Da-Darg. SIDE NOTE: The Crazy Alchemist will likely tell you about The Way of The Chosen, which is basically the Neutral option to play the game. Unfortunately, you need to be at least level 16, and your black and white karma cannot be more than 40 points apart. To continue with this path, you need to travel to Dorselhas. Talk to a shopkeeper in Imgulda, and he says to talk to Master Pushtash in Demanare, who informs you of the above information. +-------------+ +--Chapter 3--+ +-------------+ When you give the memory potion to Ialetzet, he will initiate another cut screen, and he tells you of the battle between Order and Chaos, and Balance, and about the black portal. I didn't really catch all of this, and I don't want to spoil it for you. He says that six of the seven black mages left the world, except him. He was supposed to co-ordinate things, but instead, he lost his memory. The other mages were Ziggurat, Maohrey, Tittelam, Iashty, Hathetar, and Uruhtas. He tells you that you need to fetch the six items which bind the mages to this world. (funny how saving the world involves fetch and carry missions) The first item is ZIGGURAT'S STAFF, and it is located somewhere on Zar-Di-Rinn. Go there, and ask around, I found a shopkeeper in Asardy who told me that Master Fierly in Sagart has an odd staff in his collection. Fierly wants the True Amulet of Oterion, and you are to search the Alchemists of the world to find it. It took me a long time to find this, mainly because I got distracted, and I came across it by accident on the world of Krios. Several of the alchmists on this world have them, and they'll set you back a cool 150,000gp. (OUCH) Return the amulet to Fierly, and he gives you the ZIGGURAT'S STAFF. Return it to Ialetzet for 20,000gp reward. He informs you that you need to find MAOHREY'S SHOES, on Kaastis. After asking around, I found that the Mayor in Arlis told me that Sutul Girow in Nicksaart has his shoes. For a measly sum of 500,000gp, he sold them to me. Return to Ialetzet, who is suitable ungreat ful, and gives you a 50,000gp reward. Next you will need to find TITTELAM'S RING somewhere on Torsen. I asked Reverend Hustas in Foherst about it, and he told me that a random person in Walleram has the ring. This person tells you that he will give it to you provided you clean out three lots of undead monsters. (6-8 monsters per location) Once you have polished off these enemies, he gives you the ring. Return it to Ialetzet when you are ready to continue, and he will reward you with 75,000gp. Next he sends you to find HATHETAR'S CUP, on Khohishiss. A shopkeeper in a city (it doesn't matter which one you go to, they will always direct you to another city) tells you to visit Isf Rihke who tells you that he needs you to pay off a debt. The person owed money informs you that the debt is for 300,000gp, but oddly, when I said I would pay it, my gold did not decrease at all. How odd. Return to Isf and he gives you the cup, and Ialetzet will reward you with 100,000gp. Next you must find IASHTU'S NECKLACE on the world of Ito. Hee Chon Ze in Orason wants you to avenge his brother's murder, and in return he will give you the Necklace. Go to the spot on the map that he indicates, and kill all of the enemies there, and return to Hee Chon Ze to claim your reward. Take the necklace back to Ialetzet for 150,000gp reward. Finally, the last item you must retrieve is URUHTAS' PIPE on Orafort. Khigatormy Ustefy in Drahale will tell you that Iteiny Fuggey has a strange pipe in his possession. Visit Fudatoh, and go see the mayor. Iteiny tells you that he doesn't smoke, and so the pipe is no good to him, and hands it over for free. Return to Ialetzet, and he rewards you. He tells you that he needs to concentrate in order for the spell to work. He tells you to come back in a while. Go visit another city, or do some trading, and return to him. +-------------+ +--Chapter 4--+ +-------------+ NOTE: I suggest you save at this point, as once you do the last series of quests, there is no going back. If you are high enough level with the karma levels to do the Way of the Chosen, and want to do so, I suggest you make a separate save, as going down this path requires you to abandon all other paths. Make and Keep separate saves, and go back to the Way of the Chosen later. He tells you that the spell did not work for some reason, and that he needs to unite the six mages, by attaching something to them. He tells you that you need to visit the newly-opened world of Eterniel, which is in the middle of the world map. First he tells you to find Ziggurat. When you get to Eterniel, there is nothing there except an icon called Ziggurat, so click on it. You will find yourself in the middle of a forest, filled with sign posts, all of them labelled Town Gate. There is no particular method to this madness, so just click on every one you see until you get transported to the next area. It is important to take note of which signpost brought you there, because sometimes it is randomized (to go back to the portal) sometimes it isn't. In the next area you will meet Ziggurat, who is a little truculent, but when he hears about Ialetzet, he agrees. Return to Ialetzet. Next he tells you to visit Maohrey, which is basically the same process as for Ziggurat, except for Maohrey. The same applies to Tittelam, Hathetar, Uruhtas, and Iashtu. I think there is a bug which mixes the last two up, but don't quote me on it. When you return to Ialetzet after rescuing Iashtu, he initiates the final cutscene (if that's what you call a window of scrolling text). After the last cutscene, it shows the credits, and sends you to the main menu. +-----------------+ +--The Light Way--+ +-----------------+ Your initial goal is similar in nature to the Dark Path, that is, to find out about the Mystery of Vayon, but from there things take a slight twist. You will need to earn at best 35,500gp and at worst 45,500. (depending on what choices you make) Unlike the Dark Path, you only need to earn around 40 White Karma Points. Your ultimate goal in this quest is to reunite the world of Lokatrienn, which had been split apart in an event called the Cleavage, which split the world long ago. The basic principle with keeping good Karma is: If you help someone, you get good Karma points, if you do something illegal, or kill a person (merchant etc) you get Black Karma points. Killing Monsters makes no difference whatsoever. As I discovered in an unfortunate crash, every time you initiate a conversation with someone, it generates a random person for you to go and visit. As a result of this, I can direct you who to ask, but from there it's impossible. +-------------+ +--Chapter 1--+ +-------------+ You will be approached by a merchant in one of the cities once you have your 40 Karma points, and he will tell you about the Mystery of Vayon. Keep asking the shopkeepers and someone will tell you about the next person to talk to. If you keep asking people, they still ask for 500gp, but you only need to ask once. Talk to the person you get directed to, and he asks for 10,000gp in return for his telling you about the Mystery of Vayon. He tells you that you need to find out about the Teacher. If you really want the gold, and don't mind a slight Karma hit, you can demand your 10,000gp back from this guy, but I thought it was a bit mean since he said he wanted to buy a healing potion for his wife. Poor feller. In a random city, you will be met by a merchant (with a ? floating above his head) who says he knows the teacher, and will tell you if you deal with a former friend of his. I asked if there was another way, other than killing him, and he said that if I paid him 50,000gp, which I did not have. The place is marked on the map where you need to go, so when you're ready, go off to find him. The merchant begs you to save his life, and tells you that the first man is an evil, greedy man. Spare his life, and he rewards you with 5 Merchant Points. The man who told you to kill this guy is now gone, but all is not lost. To find out about the teacher, ask around in the shopkeepers, and someone will tell you that a certain person was a former student of The Teacher. Visit the mentioned shopkeeper, and he will tell you of Eligur, the White Teacher, and places a marker on the map labelled Eligur. Eligur does not appear to have a level requirement to take you as his student, but I was level 2 Fighter/Level 4 Merchant. When you visit Eligur, he says that there is a good man that is having trouble, and needs some help. He directs you to visit a random person. When you visit that person, they say they need 35,000gp to help research this item. Trade and quest away in order to raise the cash. If you kept the 10,000gp from the earlier quest, this is a good start. I found that one of the best routes on Vayon was to carry as much Cheese, and then Mushrooms from Torena to Osgart, (Buy a tax patent here and Zyre) and then carry Beer from Toskeryth to Zyre. You can repeat this process as many times as is required. Remember: You only pay tax when you SELL goods so it is only necessary to buy two patents. Using this process (even beginning from a low amount) it should not take too long to raise the 35k. When you have 35,000 to spare, return to the guy in need, and give him the money. He will tell you to return to Eligur, who gives you a potion that increases Strength and Intelligence. (this is Automatic) He tells you that you need to put to rest some evil spirits in a nearby graveyard. It isn't too difficult, and involves bumping off 8-10 various undead. He gives you 5 warrior points as a reward. Then he explains about Sandar the Wise, a light wizard, and his evil student Dakatar who wanted to use Chaos magic. Sandar survived Dakatar's vicious attack when Dakatar tried to kill him. Sandar confronted Dakatar, and the resulting explosion sealed off the Vayon gate to Lokatrienn. To open the gate again, you need to find the "Amulet of Sandar" (the Wise) somewhere in the world. Dorien Trey in Toskeryth tells you that Tario in Torena has it. (These could be randomised though) Tario (or whoever) requires you to prove yourself worthy by killing some beasts. The beasts are about 8-10 Digons, which may be a little tough, depending on your level, so make sure you have plenty of potions. Return to the guy to get the Amulet, and then return to Eligur. Next you need to retrieve the "Bloodstained Wizard's Book". Eligur marks the location on the map. It is guarded by about 15 undead nasties. Try to keep moving in this fight, and avoid getting trapped in a group of enemies. Common sense really, but especially true here. Get the book from the chest when they're all dead, and return to Eligur. He gives you Warrior and Mage points as a reward, and opens the portal to Lokatrienn, and also reveals more cities in Vayon. +-------------+ +--Chapter 2--+ +-------------+ Spend time exploring the world that you can see, and when you want to proceed, go to Santeka, to the city of Olandiron, and talk to Velendir the Tavern Keeper. He tells you to go visit Saladan Umaet in Aryeteke at the Golden Lion. This man tells you that the Light Way is the way that every good man should follow. You need to prove that you are a good man, by finding Saladan's brother, he tells you that you need to look for him on the world of Faguery. If you can't see Faguery yet, you need to get to level 6 in one of the professions. Once you can access Faguery, ask Dagry the Tradesman in Hagebryn about the Merchant of Santeka. He tells you to ask around on the world of Noracan. Abbot Matafew in Ocashet directs you to Jahert Udakan in Dahour (could be random) who tells you that he hasn't seen the Merchant in a long time, and he says that the Merchant was going to the world of Arax. Furthermore he asks you if you can help him, say yes, this is important. He says that the Dark Way followers are causing evil spirits to appear, and they need to be destroyed. He marks the place on your map. There's about 6-8 assorted undead there, not too tough. Return to the guy when you're done, and he rewards you with a potion called Flyagaric Extract. It will come in handy later. In Rokasax on Arax, ask Chancellor Hordue about the Merchant, and he tells you to ask Fanry Datesco in Arakort. He asks you to take care of some bandits that are threatening the township. There's 8-10 of them there, a pushover. He tells you that the merchant is in Karagra at the moment. In Karagra you will be approached by a merchant with a yellow ? above his head. He is the merchant that you are looking for. Tell him about his brother and he says that he will return to see him. Go back there yourself, and talk to Saladan. He rewards you with 200,000gp and explains about the Dark Alliance, then about the Hero Legeran, who killed the Dark Wizard. Unfortunately, little is known about his fate, but he tells you to ask about Legeran on the world of Gore. He also offers to tell you about the Way of the Chosen if your Karma/level is right. (see the way of the chosen section) On Gore, talk to Saor the Iron in Khartigue, who tells you to go visit another person (probably random). This guy doesn't know where Legeran has gone, but he says that there are some kind of rare ways and means. He says that there is a caste of blind seers, who may know something about Legeran. *** The Blind Seers *** In typical vague fashion, he doesn't bother to tell you where to go and look for these seers. Koen Dalagrem in Niumladan on the world of Selendien has the answer for you. He tells you about the world of Allagrem where there might be a seer. You may need to level up a few times before you can actually see Allagrem. Ondier Fanlucky in Allanar tells you that there is a blind seer in Andalam, go there and you will be approached by a guy who looks like he's wearing a blue wizard's robe. He tells you that he is the Blind Foreseer, but he can no longer foresee things, to restore his foresight, he needs some Flyagaric Extract, which you should have gotten before. Give it to him, and he sees the heavens opening, and he sees Legeran. (cutscene) Legeran had to find a way to repair the cleaving of the world, but Balance stood in the way. The writings about the mystery of Lokatrienn were split into four parts. To find out where you need to go next, check your journal. *** The Mystery of Lokatrienn *** Go and talk to Wein Hagerdy in Tursuh on the world of Gore. He talks about the writings being called the Eternity Writings, which are the history of Lokatrienn, as well as containing the way to change the existing order of things. We must find the writings!!! He tells you where to find the four pieces. The pieces are on the worlds Roegrill, Khorasum, Daelloe and Loresta. These will all now appear on your map if they weren't available already. (How Convenient) NOTE: The names in this segment are probably randomized, but it's a starting point. ** Roegrill ** In Garagar, Sangrem Alaprag will tell you to Vasgerdy and see Valius Copribur, who may have a strange parchment. He tells you he will give you the parchment if you retrieve his lost amulet. He marks the location on your map. There is an absolute stack of Digons there, but if you want to avoid a fight, just open the chest nearby and get the "ANCIENT AMULET" and get out of there. Return to Vasgerdy to get the parchment, and 20,000gp. ** Khorasum ** In Nissufarat, Holy Hagalid tells you that Saat Fasruh in Karataf has a piece of parchment. He'll give it to you for a small consideration. The small consideration he reveals, is 500,000gp. Pay him if you have it or go and earn yourself the 500k. ** Loresta ** Holy Landagnon in Ostarlen tells you that Thacken Harbinger in Zakatar is a good person to ask. Thacken says you must be a good and kind-hearted man, if you match up to his standards, he gives you the piece for free. ** Daelloe Manigan Tiagly in Laedry tells you that Wizard Postua in Andalabag has the final piece of the parchment. He says that it is of no use to him, so he gives it to you for free. Head back to Andalam, and talk to the Blind Foreseer again. He puts the four pieces together, and tells you about the world of Eterniel, and the Eternity Temple. He tells you that you should go and talk to the abbot there. *** Eterniel *** The Abbot tells you that you are about to undergo trials. He gives you the Microworld, with which you will unite the world. You need to get the three Stones of Eternity - Order, Balance, and Chaos. You will need to get them from the Guardians. He shows you where the Balance Guardian is on the map. The Guardian says you must raise your warrior level by 2. When you are done with the levelling up, return and he will give you the stone. He tells you to visit the Order Guardian who will fuse the Microworld with the stone. The Order Guardian fuses the stone, and the Microworld now looks rather pretty. *smile* To get the Order Stone, you need to increase your white Karma by 50 points. Go and complete a stack of quests for good people, and then return to the Guardian when you are done. He gives you the Stone, and then tells you to go visit the Guardian of Chaos. The Guardian of Chaos asks if you want to follow the way of Chaos. No? Damn! He reluctantly infuses the Order Stone into the Microworld, and tells you that to get the Chaos Stone, you need to raise 500,000gp. When you are done, he gives you the Stone of Chaos, but doesn't tell you how to get it infused. Fortunately the Guardian of Balance can do it for you. Go back to the Abbot at the temple. He tells you that you are the Greatest Hero of all time. WOOHOO and all that. The world is now unified once more, and the portal system and Eterniel are gone. Mortals have now become the masters of this new world. !ROLL THE CREDITS! +-------------------------+ +--The Way of the Chosen--+ +-------------------------+ This is the way of the neutral path, neither Good nor Evil, but a balance between the two. To maintain this path, in the game. (at least to start this portion of the game, I don't know if it needs to be maintained throughout) You cannot begin this path at the start of the game, and can only be taken up midway through. It comes with several requirements in order to be eligible for this Path. Requirement 1: You must be at greater than level 16 in ANY profession (Mage, Fighter or Merchant) Requirement 2: Your Black and White Karma must be no more than 40 points apart. (this is the tricky bit) If you are travelling the Dark Path, when you encounter the Crazy Alchemist, he will lament that you have not chosen to take the Way of the Chosen. He will direct you to the world of Dorshalas. You need to visit Master Demanare in Pustash (probably by way of another shopkeeper, ask around, it could be random). To start this section from the Light Way, Saladan will tell you what to do after you find his brother for him. +-------------+ +--Chapter 1--+ +-------------+ When you have balanced your Karma, and attained level 16, visit Master Pustash in Demanare. He initiates a cutscene, and he will explain about the middle path that is neither Good or Evil. (etc etc) He says that in order to continue your investigation you need to go to the world of Nymshast and look for a guide there. Under the Jornal section of the quests window you are able to look at the different paths you may be on. In Wooka you will be approached by a merchant who reveals himself as the guide. He says that he can tell you what to do, but there are Trials along the way. Furthermore, in order to continue you must abandon all other ways. I don't know whether if you are playing through another path (e.g. the dark path) and you finish that, whether you can go back to this point and continue on with the neutral path. It seems unlikely, but the fact it is set up like this is a bit of a pain in the butt. If you didn't create a separate save game for this section, I suggest you do it now. When you want to continue, talk to The Guide, and agree to give up all other ways. He tells you that to pass the next bit of the trial, you need to open the way to Eterniel. To do this, you need to find a map of Eterniel. The problem is that it has been separated into 4 pieces. He posesses one of the pieces, but the other three are spread around the world in Vayon, Selendrien, and Ragh. These aren't too tough to find. Just for a lark, ask him how he became The Guide. It's completely trivial and meaningless, but what the heck. *** Selendrien *** Ask around in the towns about a map, and someone will tell you that Roedell the Wiseman in Adarvital has at strange map. (this could be randomized, but you never know) He says that he has it, but fears for his life. He says if you kill the bandits, at the marked place on the map, he will give you the map piece, and even pay you for doing so. There are about 8-10 bandits, easily dealt with. Return to Roedell to claim the map and 50,000gp. Head off to the next port of call, Vayon. *** Vayon *** A guy in Taklack tells you to ask Humbard Sensy in Osgart. He agrees to sell it to you for a measly sum of 150,000. Next we're off to Ragh. *** Ragh *** Ask some guys in Shatah to discover that Zikh Corashta in Husherg has the final piece. He says that a wizard placed a curse on him, and he wants you to get the wizard to lift the curse. The wizard resides in Hygg, and is wearing a blue robe with a ? over his head. He says that he wants the Ancient Ring of Mages, in return for which he will lift the curse. He says that the best alchemists in the world may have one of the rings. From previous experience, I knew the best alchemists were on Krios, and I found one there for 50,000gp. Returning to Ragh, I gave the wizard his damn ring. Return to Zikh to get the last piece of the map. +-------------+ +--Chapter 2--+ +-------------+ Head back to Nymshast and the guide in Wookas. He sticks the map back together, and then tells you to travel to Eterniel and enter the Eternity Temple, and talk to the Abbot. Eterniel is the smallish island in the middle of the map. The Eternity Temple is marked on the map, and when you arrive, the Abbot approaches you. He tells you that you need to gather the three stones of Eternal Powers to complete the journey. The stones are Chaos, Order, and Balance. You meet the three Guardians, who are supposed to welcome and help you. To become a true chosen one, you must get the stones from the guardians. He shows you the location of the Order Altar. Travel to the Altar of Order to meet said Guardian. In order to get the stone, he says you need to fight with his warriors. (and they call this helping?) Anyway, go to the marked location on the map, and kill the 6-8 knight-like warriors. They look impressive, but they're pretty weak. Return to the Guardian and he gives you the stone. BACK TO THE TEMPLE! Next is the Guardian of Chaos, this time he has to kill some undead guys. There's 12 or so of them, no biggie but watch your health. Head back to the Guardian when you're done, and get the stone. Head back to the Abbot. Now its time for the Stone of Balance, but first the Abbot accidentally alludes to the fact that when you get the third stone, something will happen, and the world will meet the new... something. But he doesn't elaborate any further, beyond the fact that the power of the stones will be fused with your Aura. Anyway, visit the Guardian of Balance. You will now need to defeat his pet Digons. There's a mix of about 8-10 Digons and Grendals. Very weird. You might want to save your game after this bit. (After you get the stone but before you see the Abbot). Get the stone from the Guardian, and head back to the Abbot when you're ready. He tells you that your heroic deeds are the last elements of your being Mortal. The power of the three stones turn you into a god. WOOT! This is the completion of the path of the Chosen, only 6 people now have completed this path and gone on to be Gods. Rolls a Cutscene. HIT THE CREDITS!
