    You must talk to the people on your own.  This is to provide an
    outline for the story, but you won't have the complete picture
    unless you talk to people yourself.  Despite that most people
    are generic, the innkeepers tend to be more knowledgable.
    
    Remember, that even though you can probably skip through some
    parts of the game, things are event driven.  Meaning certain
    things and people won't be in certain locations unless something
    gets accomplished first. For example, Abdula won't be in Morgan
    until you chase him off Barchetta.
    
    STARTING OFF
    
    You start the game off at the "Pigge and Ballbearing" inn in the
    besieged city of Tormis.  Look around you and talk to the
    several characters in the inn.  You should pick up two
    companions here, Anvil and Jeremiah. Both of them are excellent
    fighters.  It is also suggested that you rest here, and bring
    your primary weapons skills to the max.  Also, at the first
    opportunity teach (and bring up to the master level) Gustavus
    the skill of lock picking.  You will be doing a lot of that in
    the game, and it will free up your party from dragging an
    otherwise useless thief along. You should also locate the
    Mercenary Guild in Tormis.  Go there, and pick up Dark Sky
    (awesome fighter), and Cyless.  You can also pick up Grom and
    Grim, the two thieves, but they generally suck. Its a good idea
    to ask someone about inns, to get names and relative locations
    of all the city's inns.
    
    PART I: TORMIS
    
    Your mission is to get the hell out of Tormis.  Not an easy task
    considering the city is surrounded by Daemonic Hordes (TM), and
    you cannot just walk out the front gates.  You should walk
    around and ask about Thieves or Thieve's Guild (a good idea is
    to ask a guard or a jailor or any other "government" figure)
    until you get the message that you should go find Moll in the
    "Harvester of Sorrow" inn.  Go there and find Moll.  Ask her
    about the Thieve's Guild.  She will tell you to wait till
    midnight the next day. Just buy lodgings and rest till the
    appropriate time (anywhere past the midnight of the next day is
    fine, Moll will wait for you), talk to Moll again. Follow her a
    few blocks north, and she will take you to the current leader of
    the Thieve's Guild.  The leader will tell you that one Travis
    Sewer breath, is being held in a city jail, and you gotta spring
    him.  Go to the sewers beneath the Thieve's Guild and take them
    to the city jail.  You will have to fight a few guards, but they
    are quite easy (don't forget to take the guard's weapons for
    some $$$), free Travis.  Travis will tell you to meet him at the
    "Harvester of Sorrow".
    
    Meet him there, and he will tell you that he wants you to get
    Heinze's ring off the current Thieve's Guild leader.  Go to the
    Thieve's Guild and the leader will attack you.  Kill him, collect
    the ring, go to Travis, give him the ring.  Travis will give you
    a key to a passage outside.  You can also take Travis along if
    you want.  He has some useful abilities, but he isn't much good
    in the long run. Go back to the Thieve's Guild, go downstairs,
    and head through the locked door in the west part of the sewers.
    Unlock the door and continue down the passage You will make it
    outside.  You can revisit Tormis as often as you want. Now you
    have to start heading for Attiea, which is to the far north west
    of Tormis.  Also, you might as well buy some Black Blower Ale
    from the "Dark horse Brewery" as you shall need it later on.
    
    PART II: ATTIEA
    
    Now, that you arrived in Attiea, ask around about Elsopeans.
    You will be told that there is one in the "Quaffing Pig" inn.
    This inn is right north of where you first enter the town.  When
    you go to the inn, ask the owner or a barmaid about Elsopeans.
    They will tell you that he is gone but his servant Theodore
    Mcalstre is still around.  Find Theodore in the same inn, and
    ask him about Elsopeans. He will tell you that his master,
    Alathon has been abducted by Hellast (the ruler of Attiea) and
    that only the Warriors of Light can help you.  Ask him about
    Warriors of Light, and he will tell you a key phrase
    Incontinence.  Go to the "Laughing Heretic" inn, which is on the
    east side of the main road leading through the walled part of
    Attiea.  Talk to the barkeep about Incontinence.  He will tell
    you to go to the leader of the Warriors of Light, through the
    fake wall by a cuckoo clock.  Talk to the leader, Francisco
    Antonio, about Alathon, and Hellast.  Leave his secret room, and
    you will be captured by the Attiean secret police.  They will
    put you in a jail cell.  In the jail cell pick up the lock picks
    on the bed, use them to get out of your cell.  Since you have
    been stripped of your possessions, find them; they should be all
    on a table in the north west corner of the jail compound. Now,
    get out of the compound.  Head towards the north eastern part of
    the city, where Hellast's palace is.  Enter the palace (note:
    just about everyone in the palace will attack you) and find
    Hellast (he is in the south western part of the palace), kill
    him, and Alathon will teleport himself away, saying he will meet
    you at Jornuli Point.  Now get out of the city, and head for
    Dryleaf; a port city on the west coast, far to the north of
    Attiea.
    
    PART III: JORNULI POINT
    
    When you enter Dryleaf, find the tavern, which is located just
    east of the marketplace, and talk to the ship's captain there.
    Pay them for a passage to Jornuli Point. Remember to click on
    the price while conversing, to buy the passage.  Leave Dryleaf,
    and board the ship.  Note: you may be attacked by several
    assassins on the way to Jornuli Point. When you arrive, in
    Jornuli, go to the scholar's hostel to the east of the main
    entrance, there you will find Alathon.  Talk to him. He will
    tell you to obtain his master's notes from Tan-Eldorith in the
    far Elsopea.  You can also see the dean of the scholars of
    Jornuli, he is in the most south eastern building in the city.
    He will give you some items, and he can provide information on
    almost any subject. Prepare well for the journey ahead, for its
    a long one.
    
    PART IV: TAN-ELDORITH
    
    You must venture far south.  Preferably hugging the east coast,
    move south until you find the city of Tan-Eldorith.  In the
    centre of the city, on top of a tower is the Daemonsgate.  You
    cannot do anything about it  just yet.  The notes you seek are
    difficult to locate, they are in the Elsopean Academy of Magic
    building.  It has a lot of pentagrams drawn on the ground.
    There is a large daemon sitting on top of the notes so you can't
    see them until you kill him.  Get the notes and get out.  Return
    to Jornuli Point.  Go to where Alathon was staying, and talk to
    the maid about him. She will tell give you a note that will say
    he left for Trade Town. In Trade Town you can also pick up
    Two edge, an awesome magic user. Return to Dryleaf and head north
    along the western coast until you come to Trade Town.  Alathon
    is in the inn in the very north eastern part of town.  Give
    Alathon the notes, and he will tell you that you need to find
    out about a device called "Matrix Configuration".  A set of 5
    magical towers created by the Kzzir, which when activated form a
    barrier, that would prevent daemons from reinforcing their
    armies at Tormis.  If you activate the barrier, Alathon may be
    able to help you shut the Daemonsgate.  Alathon also hints that
    you need to find a mystical capital of the creators of "Matrix
    Configuration" -The Yelda.  Yelda promises to hold the answers
    to how the "Matrix
    
    Configuration" is operated.  A proper way to search for Yelda is
    to return to Jornuli Point and inquire about Kzzir.  That would
    yield information about one Roberto Zildar in Vorsai, who is an
    expert on the subject. You can skip that part, and move straight
    to Vorsai-a city north of Tormis just west of the Sisters
    (mountain range north of Tormis).
    
    PART V: THE SEARCH FOR YELDA
    
    Upon arriving in Vorsai, search out Roberto Zildar (if you want,
    he is in the central library) and inquire about Yelda.  He will
    tell you that a book called Examination of Elder Races is in
    possession of Ludovic Gruber.  He lives in the eastern part of
    the town.  You can also pick up some rumours saying that Gruber
    is an experimenting daemonologist.  When you go to Gruber's
    house you will find his diary, and a book called Codex
    Deamonicus which when read can bestow Spirit Lore on the reader.
    
    NOTE:  If you examine this book, you will get information about
    Holtsweig's
    
    Staff.  This is a subplot and can be skipped.
    
    THE STAFF SUBPLOT
    
    Ask around about the owner of the staff (Moebius Holtsweig)
    and you shall be told that he was last seen at Sayville Town in
    the middle of the stumps (small hills that fill the centre of
    the continent) go there, and inquire about him.
    
    You will be directed to his house, and therein you can pickup a
    rusty amulet and his diary.  Read the diary and it will tell you
    that he ventured to a barrow, and never returned. Ask around for
    the location of the barrow, and you will be  told its south east
    of town.  Go there (on the map it looks like a clump of trees)
    and open one of the tombs (only one opens) with the rusty
    amulet.  Go in, and you will have to fight a ghost prince and
    his ghost cronies, including the ghost of Moebius.  After the
    fight you can retrieve his staff, which can be used to banish
    daemons.
    
    Now, you have to go to Gruber's basement, and as you go towards
    east, you will encounter a Daemon Lord - Lab.  He is very
    powerful, and unless you have a powerful weapon, such as an
    Elemental Sword, you have to successfully run away on him.  In
    the chambers beyond, you will find the book.  Upon its
    examination you will find that it hints Cooltag's Rest to be the
    location of Yelda. Go there (Cooltag's Rest is in the middle of
    the stumps, slightly west). Once in Cooltag's you will find out
    from people that the mines are closed due to mysterious
    hauntings.  Gather gossip about an alleged affair between
    Francisca Whiplash and the mayor of the town.  Confront the
    mayor with the information (you may have to talk to him a few
    times, and/or talk to his wife).  He will give you the key to
    the mine.
    
    Go to one of the warehouses near the mines, and retrieve one
    lubricant and one lead weight.  You can get the weights in the
    mayor's office, too.  Enter the mines, go down to the third level
    (use the lift) of the mines, and in the eastern part, you will
    find Yelda through an illusionary wall (it is kind of obvious,
    though).  You way will be blocked by a rusty door.  In the
    inventory screen, use the lead weight and the lubricant on it.
    Go through and explore till you find a book called Translation
    Notes.  Therein, you will be told that the first temple of the
    "Matrix Configuration" is on the island of Scaeth.  Go to
    Pestur's Wake. (Pestur's Wake is on the eastern coast, in the
    north)
    
    PART VI: THE FIRST TEMPLE
    
    Once you go into Pestur's Wake, you should be met by a messenger
    from Councillor Pestur.  He will want you to meet him in a
    "Broone's Bane" inn. Go there, and follow the messenger to
    Pestur.  Ask the councillor about Scaeth.  He will tell you that
    he wants you to do a mission for him, and rescue a lost diplomat
    - Hans Middle thorn.  He will tell you about the situation in
    Essam (on Scaeth) and how he intends to restore order by
    completing the Wheel of Essam (which is in fact the Matrix
    Tablet-a device needed to activate the temple) a piece of which
    is held by each of the three main gangs on Essam.  He will now
    provide you with a piece of the Wheel of Essam (which is
    actually fake) and transportation to Scaeth. You will also be
    told that the diplomat was last in Hotel Essam. Take the ship,
    go to Essam.  Find Hotel Essam (North of the central market),
    inquire about Hans Middle thorn, you will be told that he went
    for a meeting in "Spiting Camel" inn (which is by the southern
    docks).  Go there ask about him, and you will be told he met
    with Gray Stalkers, but was captured by someone else.  Now, go
    to the Gray Stalkers headquarters, and ask about him.  They will
    tell you he was captured by the Assassins Guild.  Go to the
    Silver Garrote, and ask the proprietor about Hans.  Pay for his
    release.  Go upstairs, talk to Hans.  He will meet you at Gray
    Stalkers HQ.  Go there, and you will be given 3 letters to be
    taken to leaders of the other 3 gangs.  Use the underground
    tunnels beneath the Gray Stalkers HQ to visit the other gangs
    HQ.  Give the letters to the messengers (the people that talk to
    you) and make sure you stick around till they tell you that the
    message will be received.  Once all 3 are delivered go back to
    Hans, and he will to meet the leaders at the city graveyard.  Go
    there, find the leaders (in the north part of the graveyard)
    they will attack you.  Kill them, and collect their 3 pieces of
    the tablet.  ( Hans will offer to join you now, let him in if
    you want).  Now walk around and ask around about the Wheel of
    Essam until someone mentions that the leader of Silver Talons
    lost a piece.  Ask about Silver Talons, and make sure that you
    get the name Joolz the Blade before you leave Essam.
    
    Leave Essam, find the temple on the south end of the island (its
    a small skull on the map) and tell the Jolly Beardy Man that he
    is "Joolz the Blade".  He will give you the real 4th piece of the
    tablet (the Bannar).  Go to the top level of the temple and drop
    all 4 pieces on the top of the column (right in the centre of
    top level).  Now the temple is active, and you will receive the
    location of the next one, on the island of Garl east of Anchor.
    
    PART VII: THE SECOND TEMPLE
    
    Go to Anchor (which is on the east coast, south of Pestur's
    Wake) and you will be met by a messenger that will ask you to
    come along to Lord Hooley. Follow him, and ask Hooley about
    Garl.  He will ask you to retrieve 3 items from Eloran.  A
    document, a coin mould, and a notebook belonging to Karlos
    Slumm.  Go to Eloran (which is south east of Anchor) and find
    the Foreign Offices building (its in the centre of the town) and
    get the document from one of the desks there.  Now go to "The
    Prince" inn, and inquire about coin moulds (you can retrieve one
    yourself, from the royal mint of Eloran but you may be forced to
    a fight) and someone will offer to get them for you for a price.
    
    Pay them, and meet that person in the south east corner of the
    town, outside the gate to the slave pens.  You will get your
    mould.  Now comes the hard part.  Go to the Eloran jail, and ask
    about Karlos Slumm, they will tell you he was transferred to the
    slave pens.  Go to the slave pens, and (during the day) you can
    find a guy named Theodore.  Ask him about Slumm, and he will
    tell you that he can check his ledger (for a price) do that and
    you will find out that one Peter Helbar bought him.  Go to the
    "Forgotten Heroes" inn and ask the rumour monger Erwin about
    Peter.  He will tell you that he hangs around that inn often.
    Find him, and ask him about Slumm.  He will tell you that he
    gave him to Joseph Traal-a slave trader.  An alternate way to
    get the topic of Joseph Traal in your vocabulary is to go to
    "The Prince" and ask a girl named Ferrit about Peter Helbar.
    Either way, you must ask Ferrit about Joseph Traal.  She will
    tell you that he went to Halfway with his slave caravan.  Go
    there (its located between Tormis and Eloran) and inquire about
    him in the local inn.  You will be directed to Graybrook.  Its a
    city on the west coast, barely north of Tormis.  Go there, and
    once again, inquire about Traal.  Now you will be told to go to
    Attiea.  Go there and ask about Traal, and you shall be told
    that he went on to Dryleaf.  Go there, and ask about him again,
    you will be told to ask Arienne Toogal.  Ask her about him, also
    ask Ivan Helmhand (captain of the Northern Rangers-located just
    east of the Dryleaf's only inn) about Traal. You won't be told
    anything conclusive, so go to Trade Town and ask people there
    about him, then you shall be directed to his villa, just east of
    Trade Town.
    
    Go there, and you will find Traal's journal in a
    house in the south west of the compound.  Upon examining it, you
    will find that he is immortal now, and only a spider can kill
    him.  Get the spider dagger from the bed nearby, and proceed to
    the north of the building.  There you shall find Traal.  Kill
    him, and retrieve Slumms notes.
    
    If you want you can turn in the Traal's Journal to Ivan Helmhand
    in Dryleaf for a lousy reward.  Return to Anchor.  Return the
    items to Hooley in Anchor.  Board the ship he gives you.  Go to
    Garl.  Go to the tower there, and you will encounter a mad
    scientist who will want a brain in exchange for a Matrix Tablet
    he is holding.  Make sure you get the topic of bodies before
    your return to Anchor.  Go back to Anchor, and visit the Medical
    College.  Ask the dean of the college (he is in the eastern
    building of the college) about bodies.  He will tell you that he
    obtains them from one Axel Forkbeard.  Ask around, and you will
    find out that he is hanging around the "Daemon Bell" inn. The
    "Daemon Bell" and "Black Spot" are both in the south east of
    town near the docks there, with "Black Spot" being just slightly
    north east of the "Daemon Bell".  Go there, and talk to Axel
    Forkbeard about bodies.  He will get pissed off, and tell you
    off.  Then he will send some  heavies to rough you up.  After
    dealing with them, go to the "Black Spot" tavern, and take the
    stairs down to the passage to the lighthouse. Take the passage,
    and in the lighthouse you will find Axel, and his cronies. Beat
    them, get the brain from the floor, and Axel's notes (which you
    can bring to the medical college for a lame reward).  Return to
    Garl, give the brain to the mad doctor.  He will give you the
    tablet.  Go to the temple (just south of the tower) and drop
    your tablet in the centre of the top level again.  The location
    of the next temple (in the Border Peaks) will be shown.
    
    PART VIII: THE THIRD TEMPLE
    
    This is probably the easiest temple.  Go to the Border Peaks (a
    massive range covering the most of the south and Elsopea) and in
    them find a large lake, which has a village beside it (if you
    find Hope-the stronghold of the Hillcats -where you can pick up
    Shadwell for a valuable addition to your fighting force -then
    you are quite close).  It is almost in the centre of the border
    peaks. Enter the village.  You will find its quite burned down,
    but in the east part, there is a large, black building.  Enter
    it.  Find your way to its centre, and talk to the Kzzir leader
    there.  He will tell you that he needs an energy crystal from
    the middle level of the temple.  Go there, and after a few
    fights you should be able to reach the crystal.  Return it to
    the Kzzir.  He will give you the Matrix Tablet.  Go to the third
    level, and use it in its centre (just like the previous two
    temples).  The temple will become active, and the location of
    the next one (on the island of Barchetta) will be revealed. Go
    to Dryleaf.
    Ask about Barchetta, and take the ship to Mashan,
    the city on the island.
    
    PART IX: THE FOURTH TEMPLE
    
    The city of Mashan is ruled by pirates.  Gather enough rumours
    to get the topic of Rebel Pirates in your vocabulary.  Now find
    the leader of the city, Friday the Sword (he should be in the
    middle of the town, in the town keep) and ask him about Rebel
    Pirates (make sure you have Abdula in your vocabulary before you
    leave him) and about Skull Mountain (you should have this topic
    from the Translation Notes).  He will tell you about the
    Catacombs.  Ask him about those, and in turn, he will tell you
    that the key to the catacombs is with the jailor, Bruno of
    Mashan.  Go to Bruno, and ask him about the Catacomb Key.  He
    will give it to you, and since the entrance to the catacombs is
    in the keep, return there and enter them.  Make your way roughly
    towards the south eastern corner of the catacombs.  You should
    find the exit to the main part of Barchetta there.  Explore
    Barchetta down the eastern coast until you find a small port.
    Enter it, for its the hideout of the Rebel Pirates. Fight the
    guy right in front of the exit (Gus the Helmsman), and you will
    be told that Abdula sailed away, with the Matrix Tablet needed
    to activate the Skull Temple/Mountain west of the port.  Now,
    you must return to Dryleaf. Ask around Dryleaf about Abdula.
    You will be told to ask a scholar.  Ask any scholar in any town,
    and you will be told that this sort of information can be
    obtained through a Daemon Oracle.  You can buy those at any
    major store for a hefty price.  Use it. BUG WARNING:  THE DAEMON
    ORACLE CAUSED MY SYSTEM TO CRASH Thus, I had to search blindly
    for Abdula. Go to Morgan, a small fishing village, just south of
    Dryleaf.  Go to the inn in that village.  In the backroom of the
    inn, you will notice a person that looks like your party.  Talk
    to that person (named Ulweyrn) about Abdula. It will turn out
    that this person is in fact Abdula, and you will be attacked.
    After the fight collect the Matrix Tablet, and return to Mashan,
    go through the catacombs again, and install the tablet in the
    temple like you did before (third level, middle-top of energy
    column).  The location of the last temple will be revealed to be
    on the island of Soramuth.  Return to  Dryleaf.
    
    PART X: THE FIFTH TEMPLE
    
    Once you returned to Dryleaf, go to the local inn, and find the
    man called Harald Half Troll.  Talk to him about Soramuth.  Give
    him the Blower Ale you obtained from the "Dark Horse" brewery in
    Tormis.  Board his ship, and you will be attacked by a Leviathan
    on your way to Soramuth.  After you wash up on shore, follow the
    western coast, until you come across a tower.  Enter it and talk
    to the man inside it.  Ask him about Skull Mountain.  He will
    tell you that he will give you the tablet needed to activate it,
    if you accomplish a series of tasks for him.
    
    He will tell you that the first task is to deactivate the
    Leviathan (which of course is basically a submarine).  The way to
    do this is to shut off the valves inside it, in a specific order.
    
    To do that enter the underground complex beneath the tower.
    First of all, you will have to retrieve a set of keys to access
    the Leviathan. They are in a room, in the north part, marked
    "Gorak Halan".   Next, proceed to the south eastern part of the
    complex and use the keys on the door, to get to the Leviathan.
    Once inside, go to the central console, and the screen should
    turn to display of symbols with gauges beside them.  Clicking on
    a symbol will disarm that particular part of the Leviathan.
    You're expected to disarm the valves in the following order:
    Armory Systems, Energy, Navigation, Propulsion, Air Ballast,
    Brain.  I will try to draw in ASCII what those symbols looked
    like, however, yo can deduce it for yourself, for the same
    symbols are used by doors to rooms that store certain items
    (example: the Armory symbol is used by the door to a room full
    of weapons).
    
    `Armory Systems:
    `     O                <-its just a circle
    `Energy
    `    ||  |             <-two bars, one thick, one thin
    `Navigation
    `    X                 <-almost like "x" with a flag on one end.
    `Propulsion
    `___  | | __|_|
    
    `Ballast
    `    |
    `    O                 <-a circle with a line above it
    `
    `Brain
    `    F                 <-looks almost like letter F
    
    Once you disarm the Leviathan, return to the man in the tower.
    He will ask you to close off some air vents.  This is done by
    finding the keys marked I, II, III, IIII and using them to LOCK
    the doors with the matching markings. Once all four doors are
    locked, return to the man for your final task, which is to blow
    up a dyke.  To do this, you must find several items in the
    compound below tower: a wire fuse, a gunpowder, a cork, and a
    clay jar.  All the items are there, although they are a bit
    strewn about.  Use the gunpowder, fuse and cork to create a
    bomb, and use the bomb by the dyke (which is next to the
    Leviathan).  You will have a few minutes to make it back up to
    the tower, before the bomb explodes! Hurry back to the man, to
    receive the Matrix Tablet and a Jet Statue. Go to the temple
    (slightly north of the tower) and use the tablet in the manner
    you used the previous ones.  Now use the Jet Statue to return to
    Dryleaf.  You have activated the Matrix Configuration!
    
    PART XI: THE SEARCH FOR ALATHON
    
    Go to Trade Town, to the inn where Alathon was staying.  Ask the
    barkeep about him.  You will be told that he went to an inn in
    the Campps, called "Master of Puppets" and that you're supposed
    to ask the proprietor about a keyword Rabbits.  Go to the city
    of Slime (which is the easternmost city right below the great
    Wall) and find the said inn.  Ask the barkeep of Master of
    Puppets about Rabbits and he will tell you that Alathon left
    with a group of Njord Wolfraven's people to go to Rowche.  Go to
    Rowche (first city west of Slime) and find the inn there, go in
    and Njord Wolfraven will hand you a message from Alathon.  Read
    the message, and go to Hajak (Hajak is west of Rowche), and find
    the house of Svein McDoogal (its more less in the centre of the
    town).  Talk to Svein about Njord Wolfraven.  When you leave you
    will be attacked by him.  Slay him, and you will be attacked by
    Njord Wolfraven (turns out he tricked you to slay McDoogal for
    him-there is no way to avoid it).  This is a tough fight, so
    prepare well before you do it.  Slay him, and pick up his notes
    and his magical axe, Groinsplitter (not a bad weapon).  Read his
    notes.  Now you know you have to search out Edric in Eloran to
    find Alathon.  Go to Eloran.  In Eloran, you will have to find
    the house of the family Torano, that's where Edric is.  As you
    as you find him, he will teleport away, after telling you that
    Alathon is dead.  Go around the house, and find a bottle on a
    desk in the north-westernmost room, pick it up (it may be
    slightly hidden, so just use the pick up option by that desk).
    Alathon will float out of the bottle, and tell you he has been
    killed, and his spirit is trapped in the bottle.  Now you will
    be told how to shut off the Daemonsgate: you will need a Lore
    Master that is willing to sacrifice himself (that would be
    Alathon in the bottle) and a Daemonologist capable of summoning
    a Daemon Prince.  You will also be told to search out the sword
    of Karadith from the Elsopean city of Helladi.  Your first order
    of business should be to get a Daemonologist to join your party.
    
    You will told that a Daemonologist lives in Dryleaf.  Go there,
    and in the first row of houses (northernmost) in the westernmost
    house lives one Nikolause Krippe.  He will tell you that he
    shall join your party if you bring him a book called Summoners
    Almanac.  This book is in possession of a Daemonologist living
    in a tower just north of Tormis.  Go there, and the book is
    lying on the floor there.  Pick it up and the Daemonologist will
    attack you.  Slay him.  Return to Dryleaf, give the book to
    Nikolause, and get him to join you.  Now you must venture to
    Elsopea for the final time.
    
    PART XII: THE SWORD
    
    If you follow the western coast south towards Elsopea, you will
    come to the city of Helladi.  Go in, and in the tower in the
    centre of the city is the city's mayor. Talk to him about
    Karadith and his sword.  He will say that you will be allowed to
    recover it, under the condition that you first get him two power
    crystals, from the cities of Ast and Doorkannen.  Leave the city
    and follow the west coast south (Ast is on the west coast of the
    eastern peninsula).  Eventually, you will come to Ast. The
    crystal is in the city tower, in the centre of the town.  Keep
    following the eastern coast, and you will come to Doorkannen.
    The crystal is again, in the centre of the town.  Return to
    Helladi with the crystals, and give them to the mayor.  He will
    inform you that the tomb of Kadarith is now open.
    
    The tomb is slightly east of the central city tower.  Go in, and
    pick up all the energy crystals you find there.  Now drop the
    two jet crystals on top of the statue of the black hero, the
    amethyst crystals on top of the statue of the purple hero,
    rubies on top of red hero, emeralds on top of green and
    sapphires on top of blue (order is not important).  Karadith
    will awaken, and challenge one of your party to single hand to
    hand combat.  Slay him, and you will be rewarded with two potent
    weapons: Spirit Sword and Karadith's Sword (the only weapon
    capable of slaying Alkat).  Now you're ready to close the
    Daemonsgate.  Go to Tan-Eldorith, and step through the
    Daemonsgate (which is on top of the central city tower).
    
    PART XIII: THE FINALE
    
    Once through the Daemonsgate, you will be in the Daemon
    dimension.
    
    Immediately use the Ornate Bottle (the bottle with Alathon in
    it).  This will trigger an explosion of the Daemonsgate.  You
    will also receive a Golden Master Key.  Now, you must head north
    east till you hit the giant citadel of Alkat.  Enter it and use
    the Golden Master Key to unlock the door. The general idea of
    the citadel is to go around, and find bosses which carry Master
    Keys of different colours to open successive doors of the palace.
    However, this last level is VERY BADLY DESIGNED!!!
