Dawn...but do it the right way...return the brass helmet.
If you kill the chief no one will have anything to do with you.

Page 7:

Catwalks:  are behind Bruno's Tavern.  You will need to complete
several things before you can get back there.  The last being....
the battle with the Orcs and the horn of retreat.


                         Catwalk Caverns:

Find the leader and defeat him.  Place statue on the stand.
Put glove on the hand print on the wall to pass.
There are 2 ways to go near the entrance inside the caverns.
Use lightning spell on those bugs...before they get you!
Mist of Doom spell is here.

Activate and replicate:

You must trap a lightning creature in each of the three spaces. 
Once you have done that you can go in and use the activate and
replicate machine.  Choose your favorite because after all that
work you only get to duplicate ONCE.  You can chase them around
with the glove...it will cast the hand of fate spell.  It is
easier said than done....you have been warned!!

Time of choice:   You will be asked to choose between the two:

1. Knowles of Gortesh (the Heads) promise riches.....they         
   increase magic skills when you are finished.
2. Xeobs Tribe promise Lord.....they increase fighting skills
   when you are finished.


                           The Dungeon:

This is the basement to Cimmeria Castle.

The key is to the teleport room to take you back to the leader.
The Xeobs is in s.e. corner.  Knowles is west side mid-to south.

You must kill all or you will be sent back to complete.
You are given cube and other items when completed and sent back.

Nathanial's key is here.
KEEP THE DIAMOND!!!

Page 8:           
                       Dungeon (continued):
                                 
Chests:
If you do not have high rogue skills you will not be able to get
inside of some of the chests!  My first thought was that not all
were chests since they did not show up on the map.  But I was
able to open them if I had high rogue skills.  In other cases
when I had low rogue skills I was even teleported somewhere else.
May depend on the version...whether you have upgraded to v1.11.



                     Hints and General Notes:

Ruby and Shard are the ONLY way of opposing the Nether mask.
Scotia has the Nether mask.

You will need FOUR special trophies:

1. Humanoid:  level 3...the sum must be correct.

2. Unicorn:   level 2....middle east wall behind locked door.

3. Cobra:     level 1....n.e. corner

4. Dragon:    level 1...in room with no map in s.e. corner.

If you have version 1.05 of the game you are able to equip the
vaelan cube as a weapon and it will make another one every time
you use it as a weapon.  

Also it seems you can go to defeat Scotia before you have saved
Richard......
YOU MUST FREE RICHARD BEFORE YOU GO TO DEFEAT SCOTIA.  
YOU NEED HIS RING TO DEFEAT HER!!!!

There is a Bezel cup that acts strange on a character...it turns
him into a zombie.  If you have the problem you are best to just
leave the cup and forget it.  I am not sure where I found it.  I
did not find this problem with the upgraded version...but there
again I might not have used it when I upgraded to that version.
You can always feed it to the head in the swamp for 60 crowns!!

You need to work on rogue and mage skills....you will need those 
later in the game.  It is one of the things you find out when it
is too late.  The Grand axe "master" will increase rogue skills
by +1 and the Jade necklace will increase rogue skills by +1. I
think I found the "master" axe in the dungeon.  Also shooting
bows will increase your rogue skills.  If used throughout the
game, your rogue skills will be high by the time you get to the
dungeon and the Cimmeria castle.  Use the fireball sticks in the
Urbish mines to increase your mage skills early in the game....it
will help you out at the end!!

Page 9:
                         Cimmeria Castle:

Level 1:

Cobra statue is in n.e. corner.
Use the diamond to free Dawn. 
Use the vaelan cube or emerald swords on ghosts.
The teleport will send you to the other side of the first floor.
Throw something at the buttons behind the gates to get inside.
There is a nice sword in one of them.

The room that takes your map:
Pull the first 3 levers on your way inside.
You will be teleported to the center of the room.
Your compass does work...after it stops spinning around.
You need to cover 4 plates that are in the 4 corners of the room.
It is best to leave the s.e. corner for last.
The dragon statue and the stairs are in the s.e. corner...and you
will get you map when you get to the stairs.
Be ready for the ghosts.


Level 2:

Noir key: is to the teleport room.  It take you to a passage that
will take you to level 3.

Adder key: is to the room in the n.e. corner.  There is a chest
in there and a monster.  You will need high rogue skills to open
the chest inside.

Unicorn statue: is behind locked door on east side of level
about middle.  You will need high rogue skills to get inside.

Richard's key: it is by his door.  You can shoot (or throw
something) the lever over the pit and go through the teleporter
to get the key.  You will need to leave something inside the
niche or you will fall through the pit.

Richard's Room:

Place statues and watch the way the beams of light are going and
follow that line.  Then place keys on corners.  Now the elixir.

1. Cobra            1. Dawn             2. Geron
2. Humanoid
3. Dragon           3. Nathanial        4. Paulson
4. Unicorn

Remember that Scotia can change her appearance....she will try to
get Dawn's key in the forest!!!!  Remember the introduction. 
There is another key in the castle if you gave it to her.


Page 10:
                         Castle Cimmeria:

Level 3:

The sum must be correct:  1 + 1 = 2
You will need to push some buttons to the west before you are
allowed inside.  Once inside you push a button to expose the
Humanoid statue in the niche.  Place something in the niche and
push the other button to get out.

If you gave Dawn's key to Scotia in the forest you will need to
close the door behind you to get it off of the floor.

Leave items here:  leave a couple of each item under the sign and
you can get the key.  You can also pick up the items on the way
out.  You will have the dull key.

Dull key: opens chest with silver key inside.

Death key: opens chest.

Oily key: opens chest.

Gold and Silver keys: the keys you need to get to Scotia.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE FREED RICHARD BEFORE YOU GO INSIDE TO DEFEAT
SCOTIA!!!!

Scotia: The battle.  You must click the ring and the necklace
together to have the whole truth.  When Scotia is changing you
can keep her from changing by clicking the truth on her.  You can
then defeat her in her natural state....you might want to save
some Aces to use on her....mist of doom...or death stick from
basement of White Tower.


                            The List:

This is not a complete list of things to do or items used but it
will get you through the game.  I have tried to answer most of
the questions that I know people have about the game or items.  I
look forward to any more information to update this list as
needed....feel free to contact me.
