You  should  know how to play by now, if you don't, play NWN: Prelude.
Everything  you  need  to know should be in the manual(s). Just to let
you know this is my first attempt at making a FAQ, ever. This FAQ will
hopefully help you finish the HotU campaign. There most likely be some
important stuff I'll be missing, so if you want to contribute you can,
by  emailing  me  at helmut87@msn.com. Of course, I'll give you credit

                       http://www.gwdsoft.com/
                 Got idea from Dsimpson's FAQ in BG2


I  will  update  this  FAQ  little  by  little  now,  since  the whole
walkthrough  is  complete.  I  will  just  be adding more info for the
appendix and info from emails. I just recently got really addicted too
Gunbound, I barely do anything now! Now my GPA has dropped by 1 point,
haha, I must stop and procrastinate on my homework.

Adding  section  called  "The  Rarer  Fare",  basically  i'll  add the
"unique"  items you can find throughout the walkthrough, i.e. Enserric
the  Long/Great/Shortsword.  Mostly  its stuff with unique names, like
Adamantite  Breastplate,  not stuff like Kukri +8 or anything. I won't
add  miscellaneous items either, like those bard items, like Lyrics of
the  Lich  and  such.  Just  Armor,  Helms,  Shields,  Amulets, Rings,
Bracers/Gloves, Boot, and Cloaks

IN-GAME TIPS
------------

I'll post some in-game tips that show when you are loading, saving and
etc.  Too  bad it doesn't show in the chat box like in BG2. But if you
remember any in-game tips please share some.

HENCHMAN
--------

"Ok,  don't  forget  you  can have 3 henchman, but the more people you
have  following  you,  the  less  experience  you'll  recieve." - Mark
Willman

         *************************************************

MERCHANTS
---------

"before  you  leave the temple of the Sleeping Man for the first time,
make  sure  you've sold EVERYTHING you don't need to the Quarry Boss -
he gives a max of 50 000 for an item, and the Djinie in the bottle you
carry  from the Undermountain only gives a max of 15 000. Why sell the
stuff? Well, you'll need about 2 000 000 GP (maybe a little less) when
you  reach  the  Knower  of  Names, for you need to purchase some True
Names  from  her  (aside  from  knowing  the Reaper's name, which is a
must),  and  their  cost varies from 100 000 to 500 000... I recommend
you  buy  the  names  of your party members, for me it was Aribeth and
Valen,  because  if your Persuasion skill isn't sky high, they'll turn
against  you  very soon... And, if you have the money, you can buy the
Mephisto's  true name for 500 000, in that case you won't even have to
fight him. Poor archdevil..." - Xenobius

         *************************************************

PUZZLE RING
-----------

"the Puzzle Ring... The item is very useful, because when equipped, it
allows  you  to see hidden treasure chests which are invisible without
the ring. Sometimes it also confuses you, because some chests can only
be  seen  when  the  ring  is  NOT  equipped. This concerns mostly the
Mimic's cave, but there are other chests. First, when you just get the
ring,  DO  NOT  go  into  the astral door right away! Visit the quarry
boss.  In  the  corner of the room where the quarry boss is, there's a
chest(Ring  is ON), with a Skeleton Armor (You don't want to miss it.)
Then,  go  to the tavern. Near the weaponsmith ghost (the one from the
Underdark)  there  are  three  barrels.  The  middle  one (Ring is ON)
contains a VERY powerful (and valuable) bow." - Xenobius

         *************************************************

SCRIVENER QUEST
---------------

"when you try to do the scrivener quest, I didn't know this but if you
have  the  two  NPCs  from  the  last chapter in your party...the drow
female and the tiefling...then the scrivener for some reason would not
join  my  party.  If  he  doesn't  join your party he won't follow you
around  and  you  can't  complete  the quest for Lady Aribeth. I had a
really  difficult  time  trying to figure this out and I wound up just
restarting  the entire 3rd chapter eventually because I thought it was
a bug. When I restarted chapter 3 the reaper didn't give me the option
of  letting me bring my previous allies to my party this time so I had
to  go  solo, and this is how I found out he can join my party now and
finish the quest. I also had my golem in my party as well when I first
tried  so it's possible that with the 2 NPCs and the golem in my group
the  scrivener  just could not fit into my party. I had no idea he was
supposed  to  join  my party in the first place though to complete the
quest  because  the game doesn't tell you anything about him having to
join  you to do the quest. Anyway it was really irritating for me so I
thought other people might be having the same problem." Gi Jay

         *************************************************

SPELLCASTER TIPS
----------------

"A couple of useful hints for spellcasters:

I have found a number of the battles in this game to be very difficult
for  a  spellcaster including the mithril golems, the demi-lich, a few
of the path guardians, the grimgnaw encounter, and of course the final
battle  with  Mephistopheles was very hard. Time and time again I have
found one spell extremely useful for helping me get past nearly all of
my  tough  battles  and  that  was  Black Blade of Disaster. The sword
created  by  this  spell  is  truely  powerful. It takes zero physical
damage  and  is immune to almost all spells. It makes a fantastic tank
for  a  tough  battle and actually deals a decent amount of damage. It
also  has some type of instant death attack (vorpal I believe). When I
fought  Meph, he was actually killed by my Black Blade's instant death
attack...Meph  failed his save against it and died instantly. Honestly
there  is  no  other way I would have beaten him I don't think. He was
immune  to  almost all of my spells and when I had Aribeth tanking him
he was cleaving through her 700 hp in a few rounds.

Also some of those big battles like the drow seige are a piece of cake
if  you have access to wail of the banshee and chain lightning. I made
short work of that army in just a few minutes without much help at all
from  the NPCs. I just ran out with my character, wail of banshee like
4  times  and  half  that drow army was already dead. The rest of them
were finished off quite quickly with chain lightning flying around the
screen.

I  think the Grimgnaw fight was one of the toughest in the game for me
as well. I had to buff myself up with ALL of my top defense spells and
have my Black Blade of Disaster tank Blapheron immediately. Then I had
would  use  Bigby's  imposing  hand  on all of the melee characters to
lower  their  attack by 10. I left Aribeth to run around and basically
annoy  whomever she could but I would periodically have to run over to
her and use a heal potion on her to keep her alive. Grimgnaw of course
follows  you  around  wherever  you  go  and I had a fire shield up to
damage  him  as he hit me while I concentrated on nuking Maugrim. Once
my  Black  Blade  was  able  to  drop  Blapheron it would go after the
closest  target  which  is hopefully Maugrim because he is really damn
annoying  with  his nukes and heal spells. My Blade made short work of
him  and  then  came  after  Grimgnaw  who  was still kicking my butt.
Another  really irritating character is that archer. Her arrows have a
dispel  effect  and  when they him me, dispelled most of my buffs. She
was  giving  me a fit of problems and I had to go after her as soon as
the  spellcasters  went  down. It took me about 15 tries but I finally
got past that battle." - Gi Jay

"I  have  a tip for wizards and sorcerors facing this battle. Use wail
of the banshee and you will probably take out the Minotaur, Belpheron,
and  Maugrim  all  at  once.  Thats  what  happened for me anyway. " -
Richard Gaddy

"As  a  sorceror  most  of  the  battles  i faced were easy, even ones
supposed  to  be difficult. When i am facing a tough enemy such as the
demi-lich  or  the mythral golems or such i use isaac's greater missle
storm  a  few  times and they go down fast. It is even easy to take on
the  dracolich  all  four  times  just  using that lovely spell in its
original,  empowered,  and  maximized  form.  If spell resistance is a
problem  use  Morkendainens  Disjunction to lower spell resistance and
there  shouldnt  be much trouble. The only thing i had lots of trouble
with  was  the rakshasas and Big M. As for henchmen you can make valen
and  aribeth (once you get them) into walking slaughterhouses with one
piece  of  armor. Chainmail of Speed. I got the first one from SoU and
kept  it  for  HotU  and  got a second one in the room with the stolen
goods  on  one  of  the  drow's  bodies. Valen just by himself can cut
through  most  monsters  in  chapter  2  like a hot knife through warm
butter.  With aribeth added to your party the only thing that can give
you  trouble  is  maybe  grimnaw  and  crew  and definitely Big M. " -

THE BRIDGE TO THE BEHOLDER CAVES
--------------------------------

I  found  some  weird  stuff  on  Hordes  Of The Underdark that wasn't
mentioned  in  any  of  your faqs it's about the bridge control at the
entrace  of  the  beholder  caves.If  you  character  has the pearl of
tongues  or  the  pearl  of  bashing you'll get other choices and some
weird  easter  bunnies I think. I'm sending images of the stuff but go
ahead and check for yourselves.

here's what the items do:

when you insert the pearl of bashing a strange message will appear

root@faerun.prime.com:/games/nwn#  its like an email or something tell
me if you find out anything about it

when  you  insert  the  pearl  of  tongues  (can be purchased with the
djinny)

you will be able to choose the language of the panel (in case you dont
have a high lore).

thanks

Ok, about this.. neverwinter has said something about this easter egg,
it          can          be          found         right         here:
          http://nwn.bioware.com/underdark/game_secrets.html

If  you  are  too  lazy  to  go  to  that  site,  here is a definative
explanation by John Longino:

"Somebody  at Bioware has an odd sense of humor. root@faerun.prime.com
refers  to,  in  order  - The dungeon master (in UNIX systems, root is
superuser,  or  'God'  if you will), the world, and the Prime Material
plane.  Here's  the  joke  -  it's  in BASH shell format, which is the
text-based interface that a lot of UNIX and Linux systems use. I don't
know  if it's a double joke, but if it is, then maybe the 'pearl' part
is  a  reference  to  PERL  scripts, which are very common for running
simple  command-line  interface  programs  (AKA daemons, so why didn't
they go for a triple entendre?)" - John Longino

make a new character, unless you load your old
one.

            Note: If you are not level 12-15 you have an
                    option of going to level 15

You  have  a dream about Valsharres, and one of her male mages summons
an  image of you, the one whose going to defeat her. So she kills him,
because she gets angry, and tells the other drow to kill you.

Journal:  Relic of the reaper -- It's an item much like the rings that
Drogan  gave you. Except it uses Rogue Stones. It teleports you to the
realm  of  the  reaper, you can ask the reaper to open a door to where
you  last  died. You can also bind points, so you can teleport to each
bind  point, using the relic. Making a bind point costs 1 Rogue Stone,
while teleporting to one is free.

So  then  you  wake up and find a theif in your room, and you kill her
right away, of course. Tamsil comes in, because she heard something.

         Journal: Rude awakening -- Just go downstairs and
                           talk to Durnan

So  you  talk  to Tamsil a bit, you tell her about the theif, and your
lost EQ. She tells you to go to the armory.

       Journal: Armory -- Just go to the east room, grab some
                     EQ. It shows on your map.

So  after you're done talking to Tamsil, head to the armory, then head
downstairs.  Talk  with  the Henchman from NWN: OC. After you are done
talking  with  them,  go to the next room, where you will meet Durnan.
After  talking  with  Durnan  abit, the Drow come. The sorceress casts
some paralyzing spell and kills a couple of people. So after the spell
wears  off,  kill  the  Drow, then follow Durnan and the others to the
well.  Another  Drow  fight in the well room. Then you guys talk a bit
after  the  fight, all of a sudden a beholder attacks from behind, and
everybody  is  knocked to the ground. The 4 Henchman fight him off and
chase him down the well. While you get up and talk to Durnan.


                Journal: Descent into Undermountain


So  now  you  gotta,rescue them Henchmen. Find your old buddy, Deekin,
and ask him to join you if you want. Then talk to White, she gives you
a  rod  of  resurrection to revive the 4 Henchman. You should also buy
some potions of cure critical wounds from her. You can go upstairs and
talk  to  Grayban, and tell him that Durnan let you go outside, so you
can  visit  the  armory and magic shop to buy some wares. In the armor
talk to the smith and you can ask about crafting, the smith also sells
coloring  dye for your armor, so does the magic shop, but its only for
cloth.  The  armory  clerk  sells  some  nice weapons, if you have the
money,  unfortunately  i  didn't  because  i  started a character from
scratch.

So  now  when you are done, go back to the Yawning Portal and pull the
lever to go open the dome, and enter the well.

         =================================================


     Note: Get at least an AC of 30, or you'll die easily, even
                 the loading screens tell you that.

When you finally get down, a goblin named Grovel will come and talk to
you. You can ask him about what happened down in undermountain. You'll
find  out  that Halastar has disappeared. When you are done talking to
him,  you  have the option of letting him live and bringing him up the
well,  or  killing  him ( i think killing him makes you more evil). If
you  let  him  up,  you  can  go up the well, and tell Durnan if he is
harmless  or  not. If you say he is harmless your points toward lawful
will  increase,  if not, im guessing your points will go towards evil.
Go back to the well, and finally head to the exit to Undermountain.

You  will  come  across  Shawryn,  one  of  the  dead henchman, if you
resurrect her you will gain 500 xp. You can also ask her what happens.
She  tells  you that the other 3 have rushed off to kill the beholder.
I'm  pretty  sure  she  died from a trap of somesort or by some drows.
After  resurrecting  her,  you can ask her to join up with you, but im
sticking with good ol' Deekin.

              Journal: Sharwyn -- Resurrected Shawryn

As  you go further, you will find 4 levers, and a bridge blocked by 12
blocks. You will have to find color rods to solve this puzzle. So that
means  you'll have to explore the first level of undermountain. Around
level one of undermountain, there are these portals, that teleport you
all  around  of  the first floor. Make sure to check some corpses they
usually  contain  some  rods. So, for now, you can go south and you'll
find  a  room with some drows, kill them and loot the treasure chests.
(the  mage  can  be  kind  of  annoying since all effortless creatures
around  level 10) Then you enter a room called Grim Statue. There is a
statue  of  a blue dragon, his challenge rating should be challenging.
Anyways, there is alot of traps there, and the traps wakes him up. You
can  sneak  around  the  traps  to get the treasure if you want, but i
fought  him.  There seems to be a bug, the first time i fought him, he
attacked  me.  The second time, he just stood there taking hits. Well,
he  gives aroud 2000 XP, good stuff. Then go to the other room, in the
north  to  grab some more goodies. Then leave and head south to the SE
exit.  There  will  be  some harpies. Then go south more fighting more
baddies.  You  will find 3 Guardian statues. You have to click on them
to  aim  at the door, then press the lever to make them stay. When the
bomb  skeleton blows up, the guardians will rotate unless you have the
lever  pulled  down.  Once  all 3 guardians are aiming at the door, it
will  open  for  some more goodies. There is a Bombermakers Sanctum to
the  NE,  if  anyone  knows  how  to  get  there,  any  help  would be
appreciated. So after you are done with the 3 guardian puzzle, go back
north  to  the  exit  then enter the SW exit. There will be 3 faeries,
called  something  grig,  or  some-  thing.  Well  they  will  go to a
sarcophagus,  and raise a zombie lord. Then they will cast major buffs
on the zombie lord. Killing the faerie look-alikes will get you around
1000  xp  each. There is nothing to loot in the sarcophaguses. So keep
heading  south,  and  you'll  find some more harpies, but now they are
fighting  Ogres,  kill  them  all.  As you keep navigating through the
southern chamber, you'll find some cocoons, spiders will drop from the
sky,  then  after killing the weak spiders, the queen spider will drop
down, nice exp also.

So  now,  you will soon find the Queen faery. You fight her, and there
seems to be a cockatrice with her. When she gets to near death, you'll
get  2000xp. Question her if you want, then do what you want with her.
Letting  her live gets you 500xp, killing her, i dunno. I'm to much of
a  good  guy.  Go  from her room, and you'll find some goodies, and an
alchemist's  keg  (the  keg is damn heavy also). Don't forget to check
one  of  the  vines,  you'll get a magical vine, useable by druids and
rangers only. So exit the southern chambers.

"There  are  two ways to get to the bombmaker's sanctum. First you can
use  the  teleporters in the central area until you land on one with a
circle  of  writing or symbols or whatever around it. Use that one and
it  should take you there. (worked for me anyway). Or you can look for
the  secret  doors that lead to it. I dont know exactly where they are
but  i  have  gone  through  them  before so i know they are there." -
Richard Gaddy

"I  wanted  to  let  you know there are 2 secret doors to get into the
area next to it, and at least one secret door from there. I found that
staying  in  detect  mode  and  moving slowly, pausing near most areas
seems  to  locate  them. True seeing and / or familiar that can detect
well,  will  definately  help.  If you enter the area from the eastern
exit,  there  is a trap door direct to the east, on the east wall near
the  norhern  wall.  After entering that secret door, there is another
door  to  the  east  in  the  new  area just south of the one you came
through. This will get you to where u want" - Blackstone

By now you should have at least 4 different rods, we can do the puzzle
later,  but  for now lets explore. Exploring west, will get you to the
hall of mirrors. Where you will find Daelen. Resurrect him and ask him
question  about  what  happened.  He mentions his reflection coming to
life  and killing him. 500 xp for resurrecting him. You can ask him to
join up with you if you want. But of course I kept good ol' Deekin.

               Journal: Daelen -- resurrected Daelen

I  also looked in the mirrors and i found some goodies, i didn't check
all of them though. So heading NW exit will end you up in a trap maze.
Triggering  the  traps will have the pillars shooting magic missles at
you.  The traps don't go away also, unless you cross the maze and pull
the  levers.  On top of that there are Drow marksman sniping at you. I
was  encumbered,  and just walked straight through the maze and pulled
the  levers  and  killed  off the snipers. Wasn't much of a problem. I
don't  suggest  you  doing  that if you have any sort of protection or
very  low  life.  I  had  around  180  life. Going east, you'll find a
corpse,  and  a  harpy fighting an ogre. There should be a rod in that
corpse,  get  it if you don't have any. So continuing, you should find
some  more  dead  bodies,  they are trapped, around here you'll find a
secret  door,  in  there you'll fight some spiders that drop down from
the ceiling, and a queen spider. Then you'll come across a statue, its
trapped  also,  it will cast chain lightning on you. Heading NE you'll
find  a  small encampment, and a Sarcophagus. Open the Sarcophagus and
find  an  amulet  of death, and a Mummy! Exit, and head W and take the
first door you see north. There's a little encampment there, after you
kill  all  the  monsters  off, continue moving to the next door, where
you'll find an ogre mage. Fight him to near death and you'll gain 2000
xp,  same goes with the queen faerie, ask questions and stuff. Let him
live  or  die,  i  let  him  live  but  i  didnt get 500 xp. There's a
barricaded door there, and i dont know how to get passed it.

Ok,  two  tipsters  told  me  how to get passed it: G Admiral Thrawn &
Corwin  Revis.  You  can use the Powder keg to blow up the barricades.
This  will  get  you  2000xp, and you cant do the puzzle for more exp.

"the  first  level of the Undermountain-Central contains a room with a
bunch  of  undead kings sitting on the thrones, and in particular, one
holding  a  living  longsword  which  will  speak  to you (!) when you
approach.  Plus  the whole first level (North, South, and Central) are
stuffed  with secret passages, leading to very nice treasures, so it's
worth going through the whole level with search mode on.

The  longsword,  although,  is  very intersting. First, DON'T sell it!
You'll  get  ripped  like  hell,  for it costs 170000+ to buy it back.
Plus,  it can (later in game) at will use up some of your Constitution
to  boost  it's  power  up to +7 or maybe more, (temporarily), already
considerable  when you first get him. (+4 enchancement, life stealing,
etc,  plus  it's upgradeable.) And lastly, for the Island of the Maker
place." - Xenobius

Leave  and  continue  west,here  you'll  find some drows. Now exit the
north  part  of undermountain,and head back to the puzzle bridge. This
puzzle  is easy, on the first lever to the south, insert any color rod
that  matches  the pillar on the first row of the bridge. Second lever
is  for second row, third lever is for the third row, and fourth lever
is  for  the  fourth  row. You should get 2000 exp for completing this
puzzle. Head back to the yawning portal and restock if you want.


         =================================================
                [vb iii] . Level 2 of Undermountain
         =================================================


There's  a  small  cinematic  of a flesh golem running into a room and
locking the doors. Continue and open the door, and you'll see a goblin
running and getting shot. Loot his corpse and get the yellow chain for
the  upcoming  puzzle.  Kill the drow in there also. First head to the
south  room, there are Duergars and drows here. It's a pretty straight
foward   path.  Once  you  get  to  the  final  room,  you'll  find  a
sub-commander, kill him and get the chain. Open the drow chest to find
a  djinni  bottle.  Rub  it and a Djinn will pop out. He'll give you a
power stone, and let you buy some items from him, they are pretty nice
items also. Go and find Tomi in the same room and resurrect him. He'll
talk  about  Linu,  that she's with some peasants trying to help them.
You also get 500xp for resurrecting Tomi

                 Journal: Tomi -- Resurrected Tomi

Now  leave the sout portion of level 2 and enter the west, there are a
bunch  of  rakasha  here,  pretty  weak,  but  the  first-born  can be
annoying.  This  is another straight foward path, loot the corpses and
find a key and enter to the next room. There are peasants here, or are
they?  Talk  to  Shareesh,  and  he'll ask for your help for the power
stone,  just  say  you  are  in  the  mood  for  killing and stuff. He
transforms  into  a  Rakasha,  and so do the other Rakashen. Kill them
all,  loot  Shareesh's  corpse  for the chain. Go to the next room and
open up the sarcophagus, and resurrect Linu. She'll talk about how she
was tricked by the peasants. 500 xp for resurrecting her ass.

                 Journal: Linu -- Resurrected Linu

Now  leave  and  head  up  north  to  the last room, there are alot of
goblins  here.  The  archers have greendye so they can hit you easier.
There  is  an  appearence bug that the dye will stay permanent on you,
until you reload. Take the first left door, and fight a hill giant for
some  goodies.  Then  leave  that  place  and  head right, its another
straight  foward  path.  Kill  goblins  and stuff. There's this bridge
partm  where  you'll get sniped by a goblin cannon, arrow cannon. Bash
open  the  locked  doors on the bridge or pick them, then kill all the
goblins.  Continuing the passage, you'll come across some levers and a
stronger  goblin.  The  levers  do  nothing as far as i know. Kill the
goblin, and loot his corpse for the last chain.

"Hello.  I've noted that your faq and the other two don't seem to know
what  the  3  levers in the Undermountain, Level 2 - North goblin area
do.  I've opened the toolset and looked at the script for these. Going
from  left  to right assuming the entrance to the lever room is at the
top of the screen:

When flipped, Floor Lever 1 should
apply a Slow effect to any PCs that have been
hit by the goblin 'marker' arrow

When flipped, Floor Lever 4 should apply
a Lightning bolt effect to any pc hit by a goblin
'marker' arrow

When flipped, Floor Lever 2 should apply
a Bane effect to any pc hit by a goblin
'marker' arrow" - Claude Kenni

Now for the puzzle, leave the goblin area and head back to the center,
where you saw the flesh golem run. Put the colored chains on the corr-
esponding  pillars.  Now talk to the center pool, and a light sequence
will  show  up.  Now heres the tricky part, WAIT, WAIT, till the light
sequence  is  finished, then talk to the pillars in the order the pool
gave  you. When you talk to the pillar it will do nothing, it wont say
anything.  If it says something like "nothing happened" you'll have to
talk  to  the  pool  again.  If  you  get the seqeunce wrong, a dragon
wyrmling  will  come.  After  you get the sequence done, the door will
open.  Talk  to  the  flesh  golem, Berger, and he tells you about his
master, Halastar. Now exit to level 3


         =================================================
                 [vb iv] . Level 3 of Undermountain
         =================================================


There  are  some Drow here, kill them all, and head south where you'll
get  interrupted  by a rebel Drow named, Nathyrra. She tells you about
the  Formians,  and  that you should help them. So open the door and a
small  cinematic opens. You'll have a smallbig fight with the Drow and
there's 1 Minotaur Brute. Go SE and find the Formian queen being held,
kill the drow gaurding her, then pull the lever. She says she'll repay
you  when  the  time  comes, so let her leave and head to the NE door.
Once  you  get  there  the Formian queen comes and tells you about the
Drow  encampent, she says her people can help you avoid it by taking a
tunnel they made. So agree if you want. If you do, head NE of the room
and  you'll  find  another Formian. He'll take you across to the other
side, where you can exit.

So  now  you  are  in  the  northern  part  of level 3. Walk north and
Nathyrra  comes  to  you  again. She tells you about the Drow camp and
their  ballista,  that its suicide charging in there head on. She says
you  can sneak up around and take the Ballista for yourself and use it
on the Drows. So just stick on the East side walls and run north, till
you  find  the  secret  passage.  Just click on the pile of rocks, and
you'll  be  teleported  on  the  hill  with the ballista. Kill the guy
guarding  the  ballista,  then talk to the ballista to activate it. It
needs  to  recharge  so you cant use it constantly. After all the drow
are dead, continue to the exit.

"Actually the room where you find your stolen goods is in the big room
with  the  ballistae  and  the beholder and all of those nasty drow in
that  big  encampent.  Look  for a dark chest amongst the tents. After
that room is where Halaster is imprisoned" - Richard Gaddy

Now  you  are  in  the  western part, i believe. Nathyrra talks to you
again,  that  Halaster  is  being held in the next room. She offers to
help, so you, her and your henchman can go and save him. When you open
the   door,  theres  another  cinematic,  of  a  handmaiden  questiong
Halaster.  Someone  tells her about your appearence, and she tells him
to deal with you, easy. Now here's the tough part: after you kill that
commando,  you'll have to fight all the other drows. There's two hills
with 3 archers on each one. So it would be hard to rush in. All i did,
was run in the run back, so the archers can't snipe me, and every drow
on  the  ground  will  follow you. After you kill all the drows on the
ground,  loot the handmaidens corpse, then destroy the 3 stones around
Halaster,  ignoring the archers if you can. Once broken, Halaster will
cast  one  of  those  mass  magic  missle spells, and kill every drow.
Saving  him  gets you 7500 xp. Once you talk to him, he starts talking
in  rhyme, and says how you ruined his plan. Then his clone comes, and
they  talk  alot. After they are done talking, they put you on a Geas,
so  now you are his property. If you want the geas off, you'll have to
kill  Valsharess.  Then  he  teleports you to underdark with Nathyrra,
ending  chapter  1.  (You can recieve your stolen goods by looting the
chests after saving Halastar. Mark Willman)

After  beating  Chapter  1, it shows a dialoug scene, with those still
pictures and stuff. You know, it happens everytime you beat a chapter.
Anyways,  you  get  teleported to the seer of the rebel drow base. You
guys  exchange  dialouge some, then after you are done talking to her,
talk  to  Nathyrra  and  Valen  (they  both  can be offered to be your
henchmen).  Talking  to  Nathyrra  will let you know about Valsharess'
allies:  beholder,  illithid and undead. Talking to Valen will let you
know  about  possible  allies:  some  golems,  and people on a strange
island.  Talk  to them for more information on what to do, like how to
defeat  the  undead  army. Valen asks you to talk to Cavallas for more
information on the islands, he is by the docks.

                     [vc i] . A strange island
         =================================================


Head  to the docks, its located on your map, and talk to Cavallar, the
hooded figure. Ask him to take you to the strange island.

Once  you get there, enter the cave, and follow the path. It will lead
you  to  a Drow encampment, the battle is not that hard. There is this
Drow  named  Sabal, after damaging her enough, she will cast time stop
and flee. Keep following the path and you will come across some winged
elves.  They  tell  you about their city and such. Head up and talk to
the  merchant,  ask  him  to  give  you  the  mirror  shard,  i had to
intimidate  him.  He'll give you a compass to find the mirror shard he
has hidden.

 Journal: The merchant -- Find the mirror shard using the compass.

Head  to  the  library, and go behind it. Use the compass there and it
should reveal some garbage. Loot the garbage to find the mirror shard.
1500xp for the quest and 1000xp for the shard.

"For  the  Winged  Elf  merchant, you said you have to Intimidate him,
that's  not  exactly  true. If you have enough Persuade skill, you can
convince  him  to  give  it up. If you can't, if you have Nathyrra (or
you're  a Rogue, Ranger, or other class with Spot -or Search, not sure
which)  look  near  the Library. You might be able to find it, without
the  compass.  If all else fails, you can get the Burned Book from the
Library, and give it to him.That's worth less than nothing." G Admiral
Thrawn

             Journal: The merchant -- found the shard.

Now  enter the library, talk to the guy guarding the door, Ulither. He
tells  you  about his wifed, who's been turned into a medusa. Open the
door he guards, and head south, don't kill the medusa. Grab the potion
in the chest, and drink it, then you'll be able to talk to the medusa.
She'll ask you a riddle for the mirror shard. The first answer is Mud,
if  you  get it wrong the second answer, is lava. Don't ask me why, it
just is. Same exp as the merchant.

"Remember  this  town  is OPPISITE of normal, so rather than being the
right answer, it's the exact oppisite" – G Admiral Thrawn

              Journal: The library -- found the shard.

Leave  the library and head south to the queens cave, there you'll see
a  bunch of drow coming out, ambush them. You'll find Sabal again, and
again damaging her enough will make her use time stop and leave. Enter
the cave to find out that the queen gave the shard away.


          Journal: Shoria's Cave -- couldn't get the shard

Now exit, and head to the temple. You'll get ambushed by drow near the
castle  on  the two hills. And again you'll fight Sabal, and of course
she'll  flee  when  she's  hurt  badly. So continue to the temple, and
you'll  find  another  winged elf. Talk to him and he poisons/diseases
you.  He  tells  you,  that  you have to go through 5 challenges to be
worthy for his god. So pull one of the chains for the first challenge,
its  easy  don't  worry.  After the first challenge, your disease gets
worse. And it will get even more worse before every new challenge. And
there  are  5  challenges.  Which  are  one  on  one battles with weak
monsters.  You  can pull the same chain over and over if you want. You
can  also use restoration spells and items to cure the diseases if you
want.  Then  after  5  battles,  you  get the shard, and you don't get
cured. Get the same exp as the merchant.

"With  the  Temple,  I've  found  it  EASIER  to  just  kill him. Your
alignment  doesn't  take a hit, and he's pretty simple. Or if you want
max XP, do the challenges, THEN kill him. You also say that if you win
all  5  battles,  you  don't get cured. You do get cured." - G Admiral
Thrawn

"If  you are a sorceror or a wizard it is better to take the challenge
for  more  experience. Even though spell failure is increase it has NO
effect  (at  least  i  never  experienced  one) on things such as epic
spells  and  summon  familiar.  So even though your familiar gets left
behind  when  you  enter the battle if you have rested previously just
summon  him  again and he will appear inside with you. After the first
challenge  rest  and do the same thing until you are done. I recommend
just doing the zombie challenge because it is easier on your familiar"
- Richard Gaddy

               Journal: The temple -- found the shard

Now  head  to the wizard's tower, and you'll find the former archmage.
He says he gave his mirror shard to his apprentice. So enter the tower
to  find  his  apprentice.  On  the  first  floor,  you'll find demons
fighting drows. Kill them all. Don't bother exploring the first level,
nothing  really good. Head to the second floor, and head south to find
more  Vrocks  and  a  Balor  lord. Kill the lord to find a talisman of
evil.  Nothing  else  on this floor, so head to the third floor. There
are  a  bunch of slaads here. Kill them all, and head north. Northwest
has  Jansil  in  it, the former archmage's apprentice. Get him to near
death,  then  he'll surrender and give the shard away. Explore all the
other rooms for the nice loot. Then leave. Same exp as the merchant.

           Journal: The wizards tower -- found the shard

Now  head  to  the  castle.  In  the  main room you'll get ambushed by
driders.  Kill them all and the chieftan for his nice bow. Explore the
first area if you want. The east side has some nice items, but nothing
too  great.  A drow assassin on the east side has some nice daggers in
his  corpse. Head to the throne room to find Elicid, the fool. (if you
went  here  before  doing  all  the other quests, he'll tell you about
them).  You'll  meet  up with Sabal there, for the last time. Tell him
that  you  want  to  fight  her  now.  He'll explain about the magical
pillars  that  you  can  use with the mirror stones. So once the fight
starts,  you  can  use the unique power of the shard on the pillar. To
use the shard on the pillar is just like using an ordinary item. Right
click  and  click  on  use  unique power, then click on the pillar you
want.  Each  pillar has a unique power, one of them i find nice is the
pillar  on  the  east. I think it was called the pillar of entrapment.
What  it  does  is sets up a cage around the middle and swords come up
and  down from the ground damaging people inside. Use this pillar when
Sabals  drows  are  in the middle. After killing Sabal, you'll get the
full  mirror back. The winged elves won't help you fight, but they say
that the mirror would be useful. You get 5000 xp for doing this.

"The  entire tower is a "Wild Magic Zone", meaning any spells you cast
could  be something DRASTICALLY different. I've been polymorphed in to
a  squirl,  cast  cone of cold (when I casted a different spell), even
Time Stop once." - G Admiral Thrawn

Head back to the seer, don't give her the mirror, you'll need it later
on. You should get 1000xp for doing this journal.

Journal: a strange island -- recovered a powerful artifcat, mirror.
                        should prove useful
                         against the drow.


         =================================================
                     [vc ii] . The golem maker
         =================================================


Go  back  to  cavaller  and  ask  him to take you to the island of the
golems. When you get there you'll see some Duergars. You can ask there
leader  any questions you might have about the island. Go continue and
find  the  dungeon, and enter. You'll fight quite alot of golems here.
There's  a  thing about this place, there is this Scavenger golem that
brings  the  golems  you killed back to life. So what you should do is
lure the golems that you fight into a room or something then kill them
there,  make  sure  they  aren't  close to the door. When you are done
looting that room close the door. The scavenger golem just follows one
path  and  wont  enter the door. Loot the library in the middle of the
dungeon  or  the  library in the SW, and get some books that will help
you.  One of the books has ingredients on making tools for controlling
golem.  You can find the ingredients all around the first floor of the
dungeon.  Beware  though, while going around the dungeon there are two
things  you  should  really  know about. There is this one room with a
golden  armor  statue,  its  trapped,  but  how to get it is explained
below.  And  another  room, this one even has a warning sign. When you
enter  your  weapon will be stolen, and you'll be fighting your weapon
or some invisible guy weilding it. This room should be around NE area.
The  other  book has some translation for numbers, i have no idea what
to  do  with  it,  but  it  has something to do with the control room.
Anyways,  go  north and you'll find a guardian golem, the items you've
created  probably  will  help.  I think this is a bug but the guardian
golem,  did  not  attack my henchmen at all. Anyways after killing the
guardian golem head towards to the next level.


"Notice it keeps saying "Sinth Thesti"? Translate this by the book you
found, it's 54 or something like that. Go to control room, press first
button  5  times and the second 4 times, then press the center button.
Scavvie  will  blow  up  and  you  get 1500 exp. You can also kill the
Guardian,  which says "Laz Zandi" this way. Just change the numbers to
79 (I think) and you'll get past that powerful foe with no trouble." -
Cinos

find the word translation buy checking the book in the library

When  you  enter you'll see two different golems having conflicts with
each other. Kill them all, and head either south or north. Either way,
as you progress there will be an unhostile golem that will take you to
their   leader,   Aghaaz  (flehsgolems)  or  Ferron  (bronze  golems).
Negotiate  with  the  leader  and  tell  them  about your problem with
Valsharess. The leader should ask for you to do something. Aghaaz will
ask  for  Ferron's  head,  and Ferron will ask for the power source. I
sided with Ferron, but either way will work. But siding with Ferron, i
think  you'll  have to do a lil extra work. You'll have to kill Aghaaz
who is way more powerful than Ferron, (in terms of challenge rating, i
never actually fought Ferron). And to get the power source, youll have
to  kill 4 greater minogon who are pretty decent of a foe. Either way,
once  you  are  done doing their tasks, you'll have their gaurantee of
their alliance.

Going east, will get you to this locked door, i don't know how to open
it,  and  in  Ferrons  camp  there is a door also leading to the third
level,  i do not know how to get passed the puzzle inside. Anyways, so
leave  the  dungeon and youll find the duergars waiting outside, their
leader  has  a complaint about you going into 'their' dungeon. You can
either pay them, intimidate them, or bluff them to stop from attacking
you.  I  just  attacked them head on, nothing too hard. The leader has
some nice gear you can use or sell.

"  there  is a door you can't open. If you're a druid or a ranger, you
can  talk  to  the  rat and It'll open the door for you. Also, you can
pick the lock on the door if you happen to be a thief." - Cinos

on the third floor:

"There's  a  pile  of  remains  on  the  floor inside the trap puzzle,
containing  a sling and some bullets. What you need to do, is bash the
four  mirrors  with  a  sling  bullet(arrows,  bolts or spells will do
nicely  too)  BEFORE they release the charge, and you're done. It gets
worse,  though.  Just  beyound  is  a  guardian  spirit, which needs a
password,  and  if  you  don't  know  it you're in BIG trouble - those
golems  nearby will most likely shred you to bits. The password can be
obtained from a ghost behind that locked door on the second floor, but
I  could only get there by utilising a game bug: if you stand right in
front  of  a door, and detonate the Power Source, it will be placed so
close  to you, that you will be pushed through a closed door, and will
be  able  to  open  it  from the inside with a lever. Anyway, when you
either  tell  the  password,  or  kill the golems (clerical Harm spell
works nicely, if you can bypass the spell resistance) you finally meet
the master, who's actually a Demi-lich, a little, but powerfull flying
skull.  It's not that hard to beat, well, not as hard as it's Baldur's
Gate  cousins,  anyway  so  go  right  ahead...  You'll  get  a lot of
treasures, including 9th level spell scrolls.

"Actually  the  armor  in  the  center  is  real.  And the trap CAN be
removed. Either use the merchants compass (if you kept it) and use the
disable traps spell in it OR look for the lever near the northern wall
that disarms the trap" - Richard Gaddy

"And  here  goes the most interesting part: Wizards (and only them, it
seems) could have found some spare golem parts on previous levels, and
now,  they can create an over- powered golem for themselves! This tank
is  VERY hard to kill, plus, it will follow you anywhere - even across
the planes. But what keeps bugging me, that living longsword you found
earlier,  if spoken to, tells you that he could be tranferred to a new
body,   "preferrably  a  well-made  golem"...  I  don't  know  how  to
accomplish  that, though, but this sounds interesting - both the sword
and  the  golem are very powerful as is, and if combined somehow, they
would possibly make a truly ustoppable killing machine... " - Xenobius

"If  you  are  good with ranged weapons OR have ranged spells that are
good  go  and get those mythral golems to come at you (if you dont knw
the  password) and run all the way back to the stairs leading up. Dont
go  up the stairs of course. Anyway, the funny part is when they reach
the  bridge  before  the stairs and try to get past the end of it they
will  be  teleported  ALL  the way back to where they started. So stay
where  you  are  and keep attacking them with ranged weapons or spells
until  they  die.  Issac's  Greater  Missile  Storm  anyone? Oh btw, a
sorceror can create a golem too not just wizards" -Richard Gaddy

Go back to the seers camp and tell her about the golems.

Journal: The golem maker -- Got the golems to help you fight against
                             Valsharess


         =================================================
               [vc iii] . Beholder Army of Valsharess
         =================================================


Leave  the  seer  camp,  by  going SW, and you'll find yourself at the
gates  of the camp. Exit there also, and head to the other exit on the
other  side, going NW. Head more west, and you'll find a bridge with a
barrier.  There should be a control panel, you are suppose to match up
the  exclamation  marks  in 1 row. If you don't have a high lore skill
and  can't translate it, it will show some weird langauge. Here is the
translation here:

Oring = Right
Vikik = left
Galoon = First row
Snirk = Second Row
Puckin = third row
Zapp = Fourth row

or you could use the pearl of tounges to read it.

After  you  have all the exclamation marks lined up, press the glowing
button  and  cross  the  bridge. Enter the dungeon, you'll find a drow
named  Eldath  i  think.  He can be a pain in the ass, but not really,
well  not  for my dwarven fighter, but he was a pain in the ass for my
shifter.  He  just  attacks  real fast, and does alot of called shots,
thats all. After killing him enter to the real beholder dungeon.

In  the  beholders  dungeon  find your way to the center (shouldn't be
hard, and god have mercy on your soul if you cant find your way to the
center). The beholder fights are gayishly annoying, they keep fleeing,
by flying upwards then landing down somewhere far away. Before you get
to  the tyrants main chamber, you'll see a big hole. Climb down there.
In  this  lower  level, MAGIC WILL NOT WORK, THAT MEANS NO POTIONS, NO
NOTHING, NO SCROLLS, NO RODS OF RESURRECTION, NOTHING!!! NOT EVEN YOUR
CLOTHES WILL WORK CORRECTLY.

Anyways going through this dunegeon, you'll find a magic device, i had
no  spellcraft  or  lore to identify what the buttons are on the magic
device,  and  i  just  pressed  random buttons. It probably opens that
locked  door, leading to the obelisk. Anyways, once you reach this big
area in the north, you'll find a big spider. über hard man! Mages have
no  hell  of  a chance against this spiderwith no magic. Fighters will
have  a  terrible  time also. The spider strips away your armor as you
fight  also,  and  uses knockdown often. Using my dwarven power, i ran
passed  the  spider  into  the obelisk room. There are four pannels on
each  side. There is 4 pannels that you cant press. the 3 pannels next
to  theone  that  cant  be touched, you'll have to match them. So lets
say,  there  is  the  pannel  that  you cant touch and it looks like a
number  one  (it actually does) press the next 3 pannels next to it to
all  looklike a number 1. Then there will be lightning confirming that
you  didnt  it  correctly. Do this for all 12pannels. After that magic
will  be  available!  Grab this orb from inside the obelisk before you
leave. Now you can kill the giant spider because magic is avaiable. Oh
boy, i so kicked that spiders ass.

"You  dont  really have to face the spider first or even run by it. If
you  go  to that locked door and have a high enough lore or spellcraft
skill  you can use the device nearby to cast the knock spell. Dont use
anything  other  than  that  and  healing  circle  though. If you cant
decipher  the  symbols the other way to get by the door is to look for
the  secret door above the device and a little to the left." - Richard
Gaddy

Now head back up to the beholders main dungeon and continue to the Eye
tyrant.  There  should  be a beholder ambush when you crawl out of the
hole.  Kill  them  all and enter the next room to find the eye tyrant.
This  is  where  you  should  use  the  orb  you found in the obelisk,
unfortunately,  i  got the orb after i killed the eye tyrant. Focus on
killing  the  eye  tyrant  first,  because  when  you  kill  the other
beholders, more will pop out of the hole.

After  killing  the eye tyrant, there is a room behind and theres some
treasures  there.  After you are done leave and go back to the seer to
tell her the good news.

      Journal: Beholder Army of Valsharess -- owned them good


         =================================================
               [vc iv] . Illithid Army of Valsharess
         =================================================


(if  you  gave your mirror to the seer, get it back you'll need it for
this  quest)  Leave  the  seer camp and head out the gates again, this
time  enter this cave on the north, it will send you to a bridge thats
right  infront  of the entrance to the illithid place. When you enter,
you'll find some Duergars, they say something about having a helmet to
protect  you from illithid mind reading. Kill them for the helmet, and
wear  it.  You  only need it for yourself, your henchmen wont need it.
Wearing  this  helmet  allows  the illithid to not attack you on sight
also,  because  they  think  you  are  a  slave  trader, and that your
henchmen are your slaves. Pass through the waterfall, its illusionary,
and  head to the inner ring. There will be this illithid that asks you
to  take  off  your  helm, say no, he'll still let you pass. Go to the
sleeping chamber (theres a nav point on your map, go find it yourself)
and  loot  the chest in there, some illithids will come out and attack
you,  kill  them  all  for  exp and some loot from the illithid with a
name.  Get  out and head SE, request to see the elder brain, this time
youll  have  to  take your helm off. Step onto the circle and youll be
sent  to the elder brain. Don't attack him, you'll mess up your quest.
Talk  to  him and give him the mirror you got from the strange island.
He  tells  you  to  tell  the seer that he will withdraw his army from
Valsharess.

Leave  and  go  back to the seer camp, this is where Valsharess starts
her  invasion.  So  i  coudlnt  do  the  undead  part. it probably has
something  to  do  with  this  small  city  of slaves to the south. If
anybody  can  be kindess enough to send me a small walkthrough of that
part.

“you  get  way  more  XP if you DON'T give the Shattered Mirror to the

Journal: Illithid Army of Valsharess-- successfully got the illithid
                    army to not help Valsharess.


         =================================================
                 [vc v] . Undead Army of Valsharess
         =================================================

give  thanks to [Iced]vampyre for doing this walkthrough of the undead
part.   G   Admiral   Thrawn  did  another  one  also,  his  is  after
                          [iced]vampire’s

First,  the are five things to do in chapter to : the golem maker, the
strange island, the illithid, the beholders and the undeads. I believe
that  once you complete four of these, if you return to the main camp,
the  Valsharess  will start her invasion, so you must not return there
if  you want to complete all five quests. The undead army is indead in
the  small city of slaves to the south. Once there, touch the gong and
someone will come out of the temple. You can do whatever you want with
them.  Enter  the temple and go up (after getting all the treasures of
course).  You'll  see  an  altar with two stone dragons. If you find a
black  pearl  (there  is  one  near),  you can use the altar to add an
ability to your weapon. Continue un, you will have to fight someone to
get  a  key.  Go back down to the first floor and continue down (using
the  key  you just got to open the door). Fight the golems, there is a
rope  in  a  chest,  use  it to continu further down. You will have to
fight  vampires.  Once  you kill them, they return to their coffin and
come  out to fight you again after a while. To avoid that, you have to
get a wooden stake (you can bash wooden chest, crates, tables, etc. to
get  some),  go  examine the coffin and use the wooden stake. Once you
kill the first vampire, you get an energy orb. In the next room, there
are  three doors and you have to use your energy orb to open them. One
of  the  door  has only one pillar where you can place your orb. Do so
and  the door will open. Kill the vampires, get another orb and return
to the central room. Get back the first orb you used to open the first
door,  go to the door with two pillars in front of it and place an orb
on  each  pillar. the door opens, kill the golems and the vampire. You
will  also  meet  a  girl  prisonner of the vampires. If you free her,
using  a  rod  you find nearby, you can convince her to help you fight
the  Valsharess.  When  you  get  the third orb, return to the central
room,  take back the first two orbs, go to the door with three pillars
in  front  of  it  and  place an orb on each of them. Prepare yourself
before  going down. In the room down, you will have to fight an undead
dragon.  Before  killing  it, you should go all the way to the back of
the  room  and  destroy  the dragon statue, otherwise, the dragon will
come back after you kill him, and you probably won't want to fight him
again! There are a lot of traps on the way to the back, but there is a
secret  door nearby to avoid them. Once the dragon statue is destroyed
and the dragon is dead, get the treasures and get out.

Here is the one from G Admiral Thrawn:

For  the  Undead Quest, first you enter the village of Drearing's Deep
(south  entrance  on  the  "  area west of Lith My'athar). You will be
stopped  by  the  "Unofficial  Leader of Drearing's Deep". He has some
good info aboiut the town, so ask him about everything you can. One of
the  Human  Slaves on the southeast side also offers information, this
time  about the cult runniong the place. Thing to note is the Ceremony
is  always  iniatied by the ringing of the gong in the center of town.
Well,  ring  the  gong.  Soladalis  will  come  out,  and ask who will
volenteer to be a sacrifice. Volenteer. If you don't, an innocent will
be  chosen,  your alignment takes a hit (5 points toward evil), AND to
complete  the  quest,  you  have to kill the Cult Knights guarding the
door  to  the Temple, AND disarm a very difficult trap. If you set the
trap off (it's a sonic trap, with a long stun time), you will face all
the  enemies AT  ONCE on this floor. A bunch of Skeletal Devours and a
Cult  Knight,  all the while your stunned, making yourself just a huge
target.  After  winning  the  fight,  take the right door. On the next
level,  kill  the  Cult Knights and the Shadow Fiends that show up. In
the South room, one of the chests has 2 Black Pearls. They are used on
the  Altar  in  the  main  room  to  add  Strength Drain (DC 24). Very
helpful.  After  that,  head  up  to the third floor. After facing off
against  an  "Elite" Cult Knight, you face off against Soldaris. Watch
out,  he's  a  high  level  mage,  who  likes to use Time Stops, Bigby
Spells,  and summons. after killing him, loot his corpse, and the rest
of  the floor, being wary of traps. On his body is a key, amoung other
things.  Now that you have that, head to the first floor, and take the
west door. in the next room (a floor down, you face off against 3 Bone
Golems.  ill  them, but watch out, they ise a Lighting bolt attack, in
addition  to  a  physical  attack. Take the Rope from the chest in the
center,  then tie the rope on to the bar next to the chest. Climb down
the  rope. You face off against Vampire Monks. When you kill one, find
it's coffin, and drive a wooden stake through it's heart. You get them
by bashing the Chests/Crates/Chairs/Desks/ect littered around here. On
the  first  monk's  body,  take  the energy orb, and stake his corspe.
Next,  head  through  the door, and left. Put the orb on the Pedestal,
watch  the  lightining  destroy  the door, then take it back. kill the
monks   (remember  to  stake  them) in the next room, then head to the
north. Kill the Elder monk, and stake her. Get a second energy orb off
her  corspe.  Now  head  accross  the center room, probably getting by
lighting  a  couple of times, and put one orb in each pedestal. Follow
the  Corridor aroung, till you get to a place with 3 bone Golems and a
Shadow  Master.  Kill  the  Golems,  and  the  Shadow Master. You will
probably  have  to  chase him down for a while. Also beware his bolts-
They  inflict  Negeative  Energy  on  you.  kill  him,  stake him, and
loot his  corpse.  After  you stake him, search the chests in the room
for  a  cool  mace,  ands the "Nullifier Rod", which will allow you to
free  the  Celestial  trapped  in  the  room where you first "met" the
Shadow  Master.  Free  her,  then ask  her  to  help  you  against the
Valsheress.  Now,  head  back  to the Center room, (wiht the lightning
bolts),  and head through the North door. Kill Soldaris once more, and
stake  him.  Since  you  already looted him on the third floor, he has
nothing  here.  Now  prepare for a challenge. Vix'tra is not a dragon,
not  a  lich,  but  a  Dracolich.  He combines the physical power of a
dragon,  with  the  magical talent of a Lich, although I never saw him
cast  spells. There are three ways you can kill him. The first is just
hard.  Kill  him 4 times. The second is painful, if you survive. Cross
the  traps  in  the  north  corridor. The third way is find the secret
passage  past  the  traps.  Ways  2  and  3  lead  you  to  Vix'thra's
Phylactary. Destroy it, and kill him just once more, and he's gone.

"One  thing  to  be  aware  of  is that you can be level drained while
fighting  in  that  temple. If you dont have access to any restoration
scrolls  or  spells you're screwed if you did this place last. But you
can  use  the  relic  of  the  reaper  to  get  to the seeress without
triggering  the  siege  and  you can have her heal you. If you want to
return  to the temple though (unless you finished your business there)
be sure to place a binding before teleporting" - Richard Gaddy


         =================================================
   [vc vi] . Seige on the Rebel camp (i forgot the journal name)
         =================================================

The  seer  will  tell  you  that  Valsharess  has  already started her
invasion,  or  just  begun  it.  So  she  asks you to lead the army in
defense  of the invasion. So you rest up before the big battle. During
your  rest  you have a chat with Valsharess' projection. Talk whatever
you  want  with  her,  then after the small chat you'll wake up by the
camp's  gates.  You are suppose to organize the camps defense. I'm not
sure  if it really matters, but i got overran by Valsharess' army. But
set it up anyway you like by talking to each squadron's leader.

”The  Easiest way to defend the city is to station the Marksmen in the
inner  towers,  one  squad  of  swordsmen  in  the  Courtyard, and the
other squad  of  swordsmen  near  the outer gater. Send the Golems and
Lavora  (or you could keep her in the Courtyard to help against any of
the  "Summoned  monsters) to  defend  the  Seer (she needs them- she's
physically   weak,  so  she  needs  defense).  Meanwhile,  if  your  a
spellcaster,  take one of the outer towers- after you tell Imloth that
your  ready  for  the  onslout (the door is on the far end). If your a
tank,  defend  the  Outer  Gates. this  allows  you to keep the Duegar
bottled  up  in  the  outer  doors,  and  the  squads  of Marksmen and
Swordsmen can deal with any summoned monsters.” – G Admiral Thrawn

"There  is  a  way  to  avoid  being betrayed by the house that Myrune
controls.  (The  house  that  the  seeress  is  allied  with)Go to the
southern  public  drinking house and look for a noble standing around.
She will identify herself as Myrune's daughter and ask you to kill her
mother  so  that  she  can take over. In return you will get 5000 exp,
20000  gold,  and  the  daughter's promise not to betray you. She will
make good on her promise." - Richard Gaddy




Anyways,  when  i got overran, i was forced back to the seer camp, and
it  shows  the seer getting betrayed by one of the houses. You have to
save  her  quickly before she gets killed. After you successfully save
her,  you  guys  go  outside and prepare for the final assault. You'll
have  to  protect  the  seer during this, so she can do something. The
first  assault  will  come  from  the exit to the city gates. Then the
second  comes  from the docks. Protecting the seer from these assaults
shouldnt  be  to  hard.  After  you  are done you'll end up infront of
Valsharess'  fortress.  You  are  suppose  to charge in with the other
drows, but you end up getting teleported by the devil guy.


More  talking,  then  out  of  nowhere  the  devil  guy  kills all the
redsisters and releases you to kill Valsharess. She isn't hard at all.
So  after  killing her, the devil guy is released. He said he had this
planned  all along. It has something to do with the relic. Anyways, he
takes it and kills you. Now you are dead. This should begin Chapter 3.


         =================================================
                          [vd] . Chapter 3
         =================================================


Ok so you wake up in the realm of the reaper, ask him to take you back
and  he  says he cannot. You can ask him why and stuff, and it ends up
that  Mephistopheles has killed you, and took your relic, and he knows
the  reapers true name, and tells him what to do. Something like that,
anyways  you have to find the reapers true name so you can command him
to  send  you back to Toril. You should be able to get him to get your
henchman back, if not try later. So now exit through the misty door.

Journal: Escape frome hell -- find the reapers true name to get back
                           to Toril.


         =================================================
                      [vd i] . Realm of Cania
         =================================================

In  this place its very cold, its so cold that you take 1 damage every
round!  Later  on  it  gets worse, you can get near a fire to keep you
warm for awhile. When you enter you'll see someone disappear, well its
a spirit.

                     Journal: a spirit devoured

So  talk  to a spirit, any spirit, and ask them some questions, you'll
find  out  what  you  need to know. You'll learn of a woman whose in a
cave and a scrivener. After you talk to the spirit for awhile they get
devoured.

                       Journal: A lost leader
                           The scrivener


Now  head  to the cave in the middle and you'll find what looks like a
intellect  devourer,  but its the scrivener. talk to it and you'll see
that  it wants you to take it to some pillars. It gives you images for
hints for what kind of pillars it wants you to take to it. Pillars are
the big stone slabs on the ground. Each pillar has their own nav point
also,  so  it  can  be  easier to find. The first pillar the scrivener
wants  you to take it is to Treason. Upon reaching the pillar treason,
the  scrivener  will  teleport  to  it, then talk to it to confirm its
right. The next pillars are Dimension and Infinity. After you are done
the  Scrivener  will  show you a picture of the lady in the cave, Lady
Aribeth.

         Journal: The Scrivener -- the scrivener wanted you
                    to take it to three pillars
                      and you have succeeded.

Before  going  into the cave, collect 3 velox nettles, they are plants
which  you  can  find on the cracks on the ground, or you can buy them
from  the  tavernkeeper, for 500 a piece. These velox nettles are used
to  light up campfires, which is useful for later on, letting you rest
without  getting hurt by the cold. After getting 3 velox nettles go to
the  cave  an  put 3 velox nettles in the campfire infront of Aribeth.
She  will  thaw  out  and  attack you. Get her to neardeath and she'll
surrender.  Talk  to  her  till  you get her to join you, i fergot the
dialogue. It shouldn't be hard to convince her though.

                Journal: A lost leader -- completed

Now  head to the quarry office, should be in the SE, and there is this
demon  named  Gru'ul. He won't let you buy from him unless his grinder
#5 is fixed.

         Journal: A devil's Quarry -- Grinder #5 is broken
                        and Gru'ul wants it
                               fixed.

So  head down to the quarry, and find this red imp by a grinder, he'll
be sleeping. You'll see that his hand is stuck, you can attempt to use
your  dexterity  to  free  his  hand, or feed him to the grinder (your
alignment  should shift towards evil). If you do free him, you'll have
to  fix  the  generator  yourself  using  your  intelligence, or repay
Gru'ul.  Anyways  he  sells some nice items, and he sells a torch that
ignites Velox nettles, you can carry the torch around and you wont get
hurt  by  the cold. You can kill Gru'ul if you want, you'll get around
4k  gold  and a hammer that adds +15 to craft armor and weapon and +10
to lore. but it can only be used by harper scouts.

      Journal: A devil's quarry -- grinder #5 has been fixed.

Now  head  to  the  tavern,  and  you'll find a guy named Arden Swift,
apparently  he  has  a  way to wake up the sleeping man in the temple.
Using  his  horn,  he'll blow it and the sound will be real loud, loud
enough to wake up the sleeping man.

"The   card  game  in  the  tavern  requires  a  lot  of  wisdom,  18+
preferrably,  to  guess whether the tiefling is lying or not. (He lies
most of the time). The game is simple enough, but may take a couple of
save/load procedures to begin the way you want it. And you want him to
begin  with  a face card, because the line of questions is VERY simple
in  that  case.  So,  let's  say  the  tiefling  has  a face card (1st
question).  The,  you  ask  if  it's black (2nd) then - guess the suit
(pick according to previous answer) (3rd). Then, you simply ask him if
it  is  a Jack, (4th). If it's not - ask if it is a Quenn. (5th). Now,
if  it's  not  a  Jack and not a Queen, you can be sure it's a King of
/whatever suit it was/. Game beaten." - Xenobius

       Journal: Arden Swift -- Get the horn from him to wake
                        up the sleeping man.

Kill Arden Swift for the horn, your alignment wont shift towards evil,
and  alot of people want him dead. Plus you won't like how he swindles
you  out  of your money. I'm pretty sure you can avoid that by playing
his game, but i haven't tried.

     Journal: Arden Swift -- got the horn from him, now use it
                     to wake the sleeping man.

Also,  in the tavern there is your old buddy, the weaponsmith from the
rebel  camp,  he  still can imbue your item with magical properties if
you want.

Now  leave  and head to the temple, there is this sensei and she wants
you to find out the 5 secrets or answers of the sleeping man, in order
for  you  to  see  him.  Kill her instead, and get the amulet from her
corpse,  then go see the sleeping man (she'll attack you when you wake
up the sleeping man also, so it would just be easier to finish her off
now,  plus  your  alignment doesn't shift toward evil) If you want you
can  find  out the 5-fold mystery of the sleeping man if you wish, but
you'll  have  to  talk to some people around the town. I'll add who to
talk  to  later.  Anyways, go to the sleeping man and you can use your
wisdom  to channel your energy onto the amulet and find out some maybe
interesting  stuff.  After that attempt to wake up the sleeping man by
using  the horn. He'll talk about his true love and stuff, you can ask
him some question also. He'll tell you to find the knower of places so
you can find the knower of names to find the reapers true name.

For the five-fold mystery, these are the 5 people i talked to for it:
                            1st: Sensei
                          2nd: Slaad slave
                        3rd: Sullen Pilgrim
                      4th: Tome in the temple
                          5th: The Reaper

"It's  me,  again.  Just  wanted to add a couple of things. First, the
people  who  have an answer to the each of the question of the mystery
are:  1)  the  Sensei  of  Gru'ul.  2) the Scriviner or a Weary Quarry
worker.  3)  Gith  Berry Picker, the Sullen Gith Pilgrim, or a Worried
Spirit.  4)  Arden  Swift  or the Sensei's book (whic also reveals the
Guardians  left  by  Mephostopheles  to  stop  you from getting to the
Knower  of Names). 5) The Reaper of Aribeth (if you already freed her,
you have to accecpt her into your party to find out about it.

Second,  if  you  have a high Wisdom score (around 16+, maybe 18), you
can  sucessfully  focus on the amulet, there by not having to kill the
Sensei. Oh, if you kill her, there might be ramifications, but not for
a  while.  The  Gith Sensei could be the Sleeping Man's One True Love,
and  if  that's  the  case,  and you killed her, you will have to kill
him." - G Admiral Thrawn

Enter the Astral door, and you'll fight 5 skeletons at a time and then
a giant skeleton. You'll have to do this 5 times, after that go to the
pedestals  and  get  the  ring pieces. Use the rings power to put them
together.  The  order  to put the ring is 'HFL'. After that leave that
place  and you'll end up back at the temple. Equip the ring and you'll
see arrows, follow those arrows to the next Astral Door.

When  you  enter  the next Astral door you'll start polymorphing alot,
and you'll find the Path guardian, kill him. After that, there will be
a  bunch  of  ice  blocking  your  path,  so  transform  into an earth
elemental  using  your  amulet.  After turning into an earth elemental
just click on the ice to break it.

You  know  should  be  in  the deep or deeper wastes of cania, anyways
follow  the  arrow  again  to  another astral door. to the west of the
astral  door  there is a worg den. Transform into a wolf to get passed
the small door.


         =================================================
                        [vd ii] . The Mimic
         =================================================


Anyways,  enter  the  Astral  door,  and you'll see a mimic steal your
armor. You can flirt with Aribeth here, but i heard there's a bug that
won't  make  her  your  true  love  if you do, or something like that.
Anyways,  as you progress you'll see some blue bars blocking your way,
you'll  have  to  equip  your ring on and off to get rid of those blue
bars.  You'll  find  two levers, and two missing, pull the two levers,
then  put  your  ring on (or take it off if you already have it on) to
see  the  other two levers. After you pull all 4 levers, the door will
open, and you'll see the mimic run away again. Follow the mimic to the
next area.

In this area there are 4 gem generators, go around and collect the gem
they drop. After you have collected at least 4 or 5, go to the center,
and  drop  them  down the isle leading to the center. There is a lever
there,  that  when you pull it, it shoots out fire down on the middle.
So  wait  till  the  mimic finds them gems and walks toward the middle
eating  the  gems.  Once  the mimic is in the middle pull the lever to
kill  him.  Some  rats  may  wander  buy and try to steal the gems you
dropped.  When you kill the mimic a grappling hand will shoot out into
your  backpack  and  Gargamesh  a  demon will come out and attack you,
because you have his hand. Kill him and he'll have a katana for weapon
masters.  After  he  is  dead  another  door will appear. Enter it and
you'll  end  up  back  outside.  Use your new found grappling hand, to
grapple onto the torch on the other side.

Follow  the  arrows  yet  once again to another astral door. Quicksave
before  entering,  because  you'll fight a pretty tough battle. In the
astral  door  you'll  find Grimgnaw, and that badguy from the NWN: OC,
Maugrim  i  think, and some other people. Whatever you say to Grimgnaw
he'll  still  think  you  are a threat and needs to be handled with. I
started  by  walking  all  the  way to Blapheron, the lich, during the
dialogue  because  he  was annoying for me. But handle it whatever way
you  want  to.  After  you  kill them, loot their bodies for some nice
goodies.  Use  the djinni bottle so you can identify yourstuff (if you
have low lore and dont have Deekin on your team, but who wouldn't have
Deekin  on  their  team?!) and sell. Get the key from Grimgnaws corpse
and  enter  through  the locked door. Transform into a pixie and enter
the  small  door, then transform back to normal form to pull the lever
and back to pixie form to get back through the small hole.


         =================================================
                   [vd iii] . Puzzler's Sepulcher
         =================================================

Now  exit out, and you'll end up in the Puzzler's Sepulcher. There are
these  arrows  and  levers  here.  Pull  the  lever  and  whatever the
direction  the arrow is pointing it will send you that way. The arrows
on  the  platforms  shift around, so itll be harder to navigate to the
otherside. Before going to the other side, go all around the platforms
looking  for  places  with  two  levers. Make all the other levers the
blue,  by  pulling  them.  Then  head on to the other side and aim all
three  gargoyles at the lightning door. And pull the lever to open the
door.  There  is another arrow, that rotates around, and there are two
locked chests and a locked door. Wherever the arrow is pointing at, it
will  unlock  the  object its poitning at. So you'll have to wait till
the arrow is pointing at the chest to open it and find whats inside.

After  that  you'll  across some dead ends, use your grappling hand to
grab the chains, so you can cross. Eventually you'll find the guardian
of  the  path. Kill him and enter the portal, to the knower of places.
Ask  her  some  questions  and whatnot, then she should make your ring
point you in the direction to the knower of names. So enter the Astral
door behind her and follow the arrows again.


         =================================================
                      [vd iv] . The Blood War
         =================================================


There's  a  cave  to the west with some trolls in it and some treasure
chests.  Follow  the  arrows  to  the giant fortress, and you'll see a
demon and a devil bust in and the demon killing the devil. Go kill the
demon  and  enter  the hole he made. You'll enter the windswept battle
field,  kill  all  the demons and devil and follow the arrows. Use the
grappling  hand  to  get  across  to the ice prisons. You will have to
fight  a devil army. They keep coming after you kill a certain amount.
After  you  have destroyed the devil army the path guardian will come.
So  kill  him  also. After he is dead, follow the arrows again and use
the  grappling  hand to get across. You'll find a catapul that you can
use  to break the knower of names prison. Turn into an earth elemental
form  and  throw  the  catapult  across  the lava. Get back to the ice
prison,  and  aim  the  catapult at the north prison, and fire it. The
knower of names will appear.

"In  the cave with the trolls, there's another chest which can only be
seen  with  a  Puzzle  ring equipped, and it contains perhaps the most
powerful item the game! (I didn't find anything better, anyway). It is
a belt, which can only be worn by chaotic people, and among it's truly
numerous  powers  is an epic spell, HellBall, once per day! Aside from
that, it can cast a bunch of other, very damaging spells, plus it sets
your  cold  immunity  to 90%, while increasing fire damage you receive
(or vice versa). " - Xenobius

         =================================================
             [vd v] . The Knower of Names and Big Meph
         =================================================


After  you  have released the knower of names you can ask for the true
names of your henchman (so they wont turn on you when you fight Meph),
the  sleeping  man  and  his  true love, your true love, the knower of
names,  Gru'ul,  the  reaper,  Arden  swift and Mephs. In order to get
Meph's  true name you need 600000 gold, 100000 gold to find the knower
of  names  true  name  so  you can command her to get Meph's true name
which  is  500000  gold.  After  getting the reapers true name you can
return to the city of lost souls.

"You dont have to end up with the sensei being the sleeping man's true
love.  When you get to the Knower of Names SAVE first THEN talk to her
and ask what the name of the sleeping man's true love is. If it is the
sensei  then  escape  the conversation and reload. Eventually (it only
took  me two tries) you will get a different person as his true love."
- Richard Gaddy

You  can  talk  to the sleeping man and tell him to stop his quest for
his  true  love,  and  he'll  die.  Tell him his true love (it was the
sensei  in  my case, and i killed her) he may attack, if his true love
is  dead.  You can talk to Gru'ul and have him give you his bracer, be
nice, and give the workers a holiday. Then he disappears.

"when  you  free the Knower of Names, return to City of Lost Souls, go
to  the  temple,  then through the astral door where you first went to
get  a ring. On the map, you can see a tiny island far off in lava. If
you  target  well  enough, the grapple will get you there, and you can
grab  the  treasure  chest,  containing a powerful cloak - +5 AC, 100%
cold  immunity,  -2  to  Charisma  and +2 on every other attribute."
- Xenobius

Go  back  to  the reaper, you know his true name now so you can return
home.  You  can  also  do  some other stuff, like let the Giths return
home, let the dead haunt the living and stuff (this affects the ending
i  think)  . So now the reaper has opened the door back to your world.
Enter  it  and  you'll return to Waterdeep, and you'll see some ghosts
and  people  fighting.  Tell  Durnan that you'll handle Meph and he'll
come and kill everybody. Durnan escapes and so do you.

So  now you fight Meph, you can use his true name to not fight him, or
you  can  just  kill him. He'll try to persuade your henchman to fight
you,  if you can't persuade them use their true names. But tell Deekin
that  he  can go but you'll miss him. You'll need a high + enhancement
on  your  weapon  to  hurt  him, i don't know the minimun you'll need.
After  you  do enough damage to him, he'll retreat and some ice beasts
will  come. The next time you do enough damage to him, lava will be on
the  ground  doing  damage  to  you and you'll have to fight some lava
beasts.  After  you get him to low hp, he'll surrender, there are alot
of options to choose from, but i killed him. And that is the end.

Some tips on fighting Meph:

here are some tips on how to make final battle with Big M. really easy
if  you're sorcerer/wizard. He's vulnerable to acid, so cast "Mestil's
Acid  Sheath"  and  let  him  hit you. He will take lot of damage back
(depending on caster level). When you're low on HP, use Potion of Heal
(make  sure  you  have  lots  of these) and just stand there getting a
beating until he surrenders. Painful, but it works.

For melee characters, it's useful to enchant your weapon with acid (at
drow  weaponsmith  in Chapters 2 & 3), so even if you do zero physical
damage, he will take damage from acid.

There  is  an interesting bug if you use knockdown on him in first two
"rounds"  of  battle.  When  he  takes  enough damage he's supposed to
summon  some  ice monsters and disappear, but when knocked down, he'll
stay  there  and  when you kill Ice Beasts another Mephistopheles will
drop  down  on  you so now you'll have to fight two! Not good! I guess
you  can  have  three  of  them after you deal with Lava Beasts, but I
haven't tried that. - Darko Perovic

"In 'The Knower of Names and Big Meph' part,when you ask the Knower of
Names  the  Sleeping Man's true love,the answer you got is 'You',which
means  my  female  character  is his true love .-_- And,after you went
back  and  talked to the Sleeping Man,he decides to fight Meph at your
side.  I  didn't  really  fight  Meph since I used his true name,but I
think  if  the  battle  starts,the Sleeping Man may appear to help." -

Elves  are  known  for  their  poetry, song and magical arts, but when
danger  threatens  they  show  great  skill with weapons and strategy.
Elves  can  live  to be over 700 yars old and, by human standards, are
slow  to  make  friends  and  enemies, and even slower to forget them.
Elves  are  slim  and  stand 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 feet tall. They tend to be
pale-skinned and dark-haired with deep green eyes. They have no facial
or body hair, prefer comfortable clothes, and possess unearthly grace,
Many other races find them hauntingly beatiful.

things.  Gnomes stand 3 to 3 1/2 feet tall, with skin that ranges from

HALF-ELF:
--------

Half-elves have the curiosity and ambition of their human parent, with
the re fined senses and love of nature of their elven parent, although
they are outsiders among both cluters. To humans, half-elves look like
elves.  To  elves, they look like humans. Half-elves are paler, fairer

wild dancing. They are an asset at the right sort of party, but not at
the  duchess's  grand  ball. Half-orcs are as tall as humans but their
brutish  features  betray  their  lineage.  They  also regard scars as

                        ---------------------

Barbarians  are  brave,  even  reckless, and their warrior skills make
them  well  suited  to adventure. Barbarians have a powerful rage that
makes them strong and better able to withstand attacks. They only have
the  energy  for  a  few  such  displays  per  day,  but it is usually
sufficient.  Constant exposure to danger has also given the barbarians
a sort of "sixth sense," the preternatural ability to sense danger and
dodge attacks, and their running stamina is legendary.

			   [vi ii.2] . BARD
                           ----------------

  Bards often serve as negotiators, messengers, scouts and spies. They
love  to  accompany  heroes  (and  villains_  to  witness  heroic  (or
villainous) deeds firsthand (i.e. Deekin), since a bard who can tell a
story  from personal experience earns renown among his fellows. A bard
casts  arcane  spells  without  any  advanced preparation, much like a
sorceror.  Bards  also  share  some specialized skills with rogues and
their  knowledge  of  item  lore  is nearly unmatched. A high Charisma

                          [vi ii.3] . CLERIC
                          ------------------

  Clerics act as intermediaries between the earthly and the divine (or
infernal)  wrolds.  A  good  cleric helps those in need, while an evil
cleric  seeks  to spread his patron's vision of evil across the world.
All  clerics  can  heal wounds and bring people back from the brink of
death  and  powerful  clerics  can  even raise the dead. Likewise, all
clerics  have authority over undead cratures and they can turn away or
destroy  these creatures. Clerics can use simple weapons and all forms
of  armor  and shields without penalty, since armor does not interfere
with  the  casting  of divine spells. In addition to his complement of
spells,  every  cleric chooses to focus on two of his deity's domains.
These  domains grants the cleric special powers and give him access to
spells  that  he  might otherwise never learn. A cleric's Wisdom score
should  be high, since this determines the maximum spell level that he
can cast.

                          -----------------

  Druids  gain power not by ruling nature but by being at one with it.
Druids  hate  the  unnatural,  including  aberrations  or  undead, and
destroy them where possible. Druids receive divine spells from nature,
not the gods, and can gain an array of powers as they gain experience,
including  the ability to take the shapes of animals. A druid is often
accompanied  by  an animal companion. The weapons and armor of a druid
are  restricted  by  thei  traditional  oaths,  not simply training. A
druid's  Wisdom  score  should be high, as this determines the maximum
spell level that they can cast.

                         -------------------

Fighters can be many things, from soldiers to criminal enforcers. Some
see  adventure  as a way to get rich, while others use their skills to
protect  the  innocent.  Fighters  have  the  best all-around fighting
capabilities  of  the  PC  classes  and  they  are  trained to use all
standard  weapons  and  armor.  A  fighter's rigorous martial training
grants him many bonus feats as he progresses. High-level fighters have

                            --------------

Monks  are  versatile  warriors skilled at fighting without weapons or
armor.  Good-aligned  moniks serve as protectors of people, while evil
monks make ideal spies and assassins. Although they don't cast spells,
monks  channel a subtle energy called ki. This energy allows a monk to
perform  amazing  feats,  such  as healing himself, catching arrows in
flight  and  doging  blows  with lightning speed. A monk's mundane and
ki-based  abilities grow with experience, granting him more power over
himself  and  his  environment.  Monks suffer unique penalites if they
wear  armor,  as  doing  so  violates their rigid oath. A monk wearing
armor  loses his Wisdom and levelbased AC bonuses, movement speed, and
additional unarmed attacks per round.

                         [vi ii.7] . PALADIN
                         -------------------

Paladins  take  their adventures seriously, and even a mundane mission
is,  in the heart of the paladin, a personal test -- an opportunity to
demonstrate  bravery,  to  learn  tactics and to find ways to do good.
Divine  power  protects  these  warriors  of virtue, warding off harm,
protecting  from  disease,  healing  and  guarding  against  fear. The
paladin  can  also direct this power to help others, healing wounds or
curing  diseases and also use it to destroy evil. Experienced paladins
can  smite  evil  foes  and turn away undead. A paladin's Wisdom score
should  be  high,  as this determines the maximum spell level that she
can  cast. Many of the paladin's special abilities also benefit from a
high Charisma score.

                          ------------------

Rangers  are  skilled  stalkers and hunters who make their home in the
woods. A ranger's martial skill is nearly the equal the fighter's, but
rangers  lack  the  latter's  dedication  to  the  craft  of fighting.
Instead,  the  ranger  focuses  his  skills and training on a specific
enemy  --  a  type  of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and
hunts  above  all  others.  Rangers often accept the role of protector
aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow
him  to  move  quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural
settings,  and  he  also  has  special  knowledge  of certain types of
creatures.  Finally,  an  experienced  ranger has such a tie to nature
that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much
as a druid does. Like a druid, a ranger is often accompanied by animal
companions. A ranger's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines
the maximum spell level that he can cast.

  NOTE:  Dual  Wield  does  not  count as Ambidexterity and Two-Weapon

                          -----------------

Rogues have little in common with each other. While some -- maybe even
the  majority  --are  stealthy  theives,  many serve as scouts, spies,
investigators,  diplomats  or  simple  thugs.  Rogues  are  versatile,
adaptable  and  skilled at getting what others don't want them to get.
While not equal to a fighter in combat, a rogue knows how to hit where
it  hurts, and a sneak attack can dish out alot of damage. Rogues also
seem  to  have  a  sixth  sense  when  it  comes  to  avoiding danger.
Experienced  Rogues  develop  nearly magical powers and skills as they
master  the  arts  of stealth, evasion and sneak attacks. In addition,
while  not  capable of casting spells, a rogue can sometimes "fake it"
well  enough  to cast spells from scrolls, activate wands and use just
about any other magic item.

------------------------

*SNEAK ATTACK:

capitalizing on this knowledge with their deadly sneak attacks.

  GAINED: 1st level

  USE: Automatic

  BONUSES:  Whenever  the  rogue  makes  a successful melle or ranged
  attack against an opponent that is flat-footed OR cannot see the 
  character (i.e., character is in Stealth mode or invisible) OR has 
  its back facing the charater AND the target is in combat against 
  another opponent, the rogue's blow deals extra damage (+1d6 at 1st 
  level, and an additional +1d6 every two levels therafter). This 
  extra damage is not multiplied in the case of a critical hit.

  SPECIAL  The  construct and undead monster types are immune to sneak
  attacks,  as  are  any  creatures  that are immune to critical hits.

Rogues are able to escape potential deadly situations.

*ROGUE SPECIAL FEATS:

On  achieving  10th level and every three levels thereafter, the rogue
can choose a speical feat from the following list:

  CRIPPLING STRIKE:  Any  successful  sneak attack automatically deals
  two points of Strength ability damage to the target.

  OPPUORTUNIST: The rogue automatically gains a +4 Competence bonus to
  attack rolls when making an attack of oppurtunity.

  SKILL MASTERY:  The  rogue  can  take 20 whenever using the Disable
  Trap, Open Lock, or Set Traps skills, even if in combat.

  IMPROVED EVASION:  In  situations  where  a successful Reflex saving
  throw  would  allow  others  to  take  only  half  damage, the rogue
  escapes  unscathed  on  a successful roll and takes only half damage
  even if the saving throw fails.

  DEFENSIVE ROLL:   Once  per  day,  if  the  rogue  is  struck  by  a
  potentially lethal blow (damage that would normally drop him below 1 
  hit point), he can make a Reflex savin throw (DC = damage dealt). If
  successful, he takes only half damage from the blow (which may still
  be  enough  to  kill  him). If caught flat-footed, the rogue may not
  make a Defensive Roll.

                               EPICNESS

                        [vi ii.10] . SORCEROR
                        ---------------------

Sorcerers  are  arcane  spellcasters  who manipulate magic energy with
imagination  and  talent rather than studious discipline. They have no
books,  no  mentors, no theories -- just raw power that they direct at
will.  Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards, and acquire them more
slowly,  but  they  can  cast individual spells more often and have no
need  to prepare their incantaions ahead of time. Also unlike wizards,
sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain
their  powers  without  undergoing  the  years  of rigorous study that
wizards  go  through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and
are  proficient with simple weapons. A sorcerer can call a familiar: a
small,  magical,  animal  companion that servers her. Charisma is very
important  for  sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the
higher the spell level she can cast.

                         -------------------

Wizards  are  arcane  spell  casters  who depend on intensive study to
create  their magic. To wizards, magic isnot a talent but a difficult,
rewarding  art.  When  they  are  prepared for battle, wizards can use
their  spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are
vulnerable.  The  wizard's  strength is her spells; everything else is
secondary.  She  learns  new  spells  as  she experiments and grows in
experience  and  she  can  also  learn  them  from  other  wizards. In
addition,  over  time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they
go  farther,  work  better or are improved in some other way. A wizard
can  call  a familiar: a small, magical, animal companion that servers
her.  With  a  high  Intelligence. wizards are capable of casting very
high-level spells.

to  carry  out  missions of death with shocking, terrifying precision.
Rogues,   monks  and  bards  are  ideal  candidates  for  training  as
assassins.

Unlike  the blackguard, the assassin is not evil due to devotion to an
evil  power,  but  rather  due to a complete lack of morals or ethics.
These  ruthless  and avaricious killers have but one requirement other
than  a predisposition for an evil and penchant for stealth. They must
kill another intelligent being for no other reason than pey.

                      [vi iii.6] . HARPER SCOUT
                      -------------------------

Harpers  are  members  of  a  secret society dedicated to holding back
evil,   preserving   knowledge,  and  maintaing  the  balance  between
civilization and the wild. Harpers learn arcane spells and many skills
to  help  them  in  their  duties  of espionage, stealth and reporting
information.

Many  Harpers  are bards, but by no means all. Ranger, rogue, sorcerer
and  wizard are common vocations for Harpers, as these classes tend to
have  versatility  and  mobility. All have some skills at minupulating
others,  a resistance to outside mental influences, acute abilities of
perception, and a talent for solving problems.

Not  all  harpers  are members of the Harper scout prestige class, and
rank  within the organization does not depend on the character's level
in this or any other class. However, most of the higher-ranked Harpers
have at least one level in the Harper scout prestige class.

The  highest-ranked  Harpers are called the High Harpers, and they are
responsible  for  most of the long-term planning for the organization.
The  High  Harpers  are  voted into their position by a asecret ballot
among  the  other  High  Harpers,  with the criteria being experience,
exceptional  service,  and  discretion  in  implementing  the Harpers'
plans.

allow a harper scout to better support her agents and allies.

become  "epic"  in  the  Harper scout class. They can, of course, gain
epic levels in their other classes.

                       ------------------------

somehow  connected  to  the  presence  of dragon blood in their family
tree. Red Dragon Disciples are sorcerers, and sometimes bards, who use
their  magical  power  as a catalyst to ignite their red dragon blood,
realizing  its fullest potential. They prefer a life of exploration to
a cloistered existence. Already adept at magic, many pursue adventure,
especially  if it thurthers their goal of finding out more about their
draconic  heritage.  They  often  feel  drawn to areas known to harbor
dragons.

                      --------------------------

Operating  int he border between light and darkness, shadowdancers are
nimble  artists  of  deception. They are mysterious and unknown, never
completely trusted but always inducing wonder when met.

Rogues,  bards  and  monks make excellent shadowdancers, but fighters,
barbarians,  rangers  and paladins also find that showdancer abilities
allow  them  to  strike  at  their  opponents with surprise and skill.
Wizard, sorcerer, cleric, and druid shadowdancers employ the defensive
capabilities  inherent  in  the  prestige  class to allow them to cast
their  spells  from  safety  and move away quickly. Despite their link
with  shadows  and  trickery, shadowdancers are as often good as evil.
They may use their incredible abilities as they wish.

Shadowdancers  often  work  in troupes, never staying in one place too
long.  Some  use  their  abilities  to  entertain.  Others  operate as
thieves,  using  their  abilities to infiltrate past defenses and dupe
others.  All shadowdancer troupes maintain an aura of myster among the
populace, who never know whether to think well or ill of them.
