    0. INTROD.
    
      If you loved Pool then you'll love Curse even more.  Its a big improvement
    
    over Pool and it even has a FIX command.  Some encounters are not listed as its
    
    too much piss farten around to see if an encounter is random or set.
    
    
    
    
    
    PARTY CONSTRUCTION.
    
      For this game I used the following brave adventurers; Dwarven Male
    
    Fighter\Thief, Human Female Paladin, Human Male Cleric, Human Male Cleric,
    
    Human Female Mage, Human Male Mage.  Avoid using multi-class characters, while
    
    they are good to start with it takes too long to build up good magicians and
    
    clerics which you need.  I chose to use human classes over other classes as
    
    they are supposed to have unlimited advancement, but of course this is not so
    
    in this game.  Make sure you have a female in your party as she will be very
    
    handy later on in the game.
    
    
    
      When constructing a party you should seriously consider including a Paladin
    
    as they have Protection From Evil spells around them, can turn undead, heal,
    
    cure and cast clerical spells at higher levels.
    
    
    
    Fighters: Only good when they are of Dwarven make.  They get Hit Point bonuses
    
      if they have a constitution of 17+.  They can use any armour and weild most
    
      weapons.
    
    
    
    Paladins: Only humands can be Paladins.  Great character type.  Can Heal, Cure,
    
      Turn undead and cast clerical spells once they reach a high level.  They have
    
      Protection from Evil spells permenantly cast opon them.  They can wear any
    
      armour and weild most weapons.
    
    
    
    Rangers: Kind of like a hybrid cleric\magician for plants.  Most spells have
    
      something to do with nature.  I think they are a shit class to be used in
    
      Curse, but that is my opinion (of which there is a lot through out this
    
      file.) They get HP bonuses with a constitution of 17+ and they can use most
    
      weapons and armour.
    
    
    
    Clerics: No party should be without one.  Can do the churchy type spells.
    
      Oopps, prayers I should say.  They are excellent healers and not much else.
    
      They do not have to find or buy prayers in order to know them.  All spells in
    
      there grimoire are there opon level advancement.  They can use most armour
    
      and some weapons.
    
    
    
    Magicians: Pretty much like Gods on two legs, especially the very high level
    
      ones.  These guys do the destructive stuff and leave the healing crap to the
    
      clerics.  Major drawback is that they can wear no armour and weak weapons
    
      like daggers, darts and saffs.  (You have to stock them up on Bracers, rings
    
      of protection and cloaks of displacement and stuff like that.)
    
    
    
    Thievs: The extraperceptionary characters, they can detect traps and pick
    
      locks, hide in the shadows, etc...  They can only use one handed weapons and
    
      leather armour.  You never know when one might come in handy (As some folk
    
      found out in Pool when tackling Cadornas Textile House ];-)
    
    
    
      Beware also of falling into the Human Class Change trap.  While it sounds
    
    great there are some drawbacks that you should have noted assuming you read the
    
    manual carefully.
    
    
    
    1.  You can't use the skills of the previous class until the current class
    
       level surpasses the previous class level by one.  EG: Fighter\Cleric must
    
       have a cleric level of one higher than the fighter, so it must be like 9/10
    
       or 10/11.
    
    
    
    2.  Dual class magicians can't cast spells while wearing armour.  So its not
    
       much point in having a Fighter\Magician.  But you can have a Fighter\Cleric.
    
    
    
    3.  Its not worth changing class as it takes a long time to build up your
    
       characters again to a higher level than the previous class.
    
    
    
    4.  Until your second class level surpasses your first class level you do not
    
       gain hit points, even though you can still advance levels.
    
    
    
    
    
    SAVING
    
      Make use of your saved game spots, Its good to make the first save in the
    
    list your start save, that is every time you set foot in a new maze save
    
    immediatly and then use your other save spots as intermediate spots.
    
    
    
    
    
    ** P.S.  This game took me a while to map, and I'm bloody glad the mazes are
    
            not as complex as the Bards Tale or Wizardry series.....
    
    
    
    
    
    MAPS
    
      This solution only covers the main maps to complete the game, as such the
    
    Tower of Oxam is not included.  But if you want to find it go to DaggerFalls
    
    and search the area.  You will find a Magic Shop which sells goods cheaper than
    
    anywhere else.  The shopkeeper will tell you where the tower is.  Its tough,
    
    home of the High Imperceptor (Zhents) as well as the Mulmaster beholder corps.
    
    There is a mega big battle with rackshasa, hell hounds and beholders so
    
    beware.....
    
    
    
    
    
    1. TILVERTON : 1 Level Town, 1 Level Thieves Guild
    
      Ahhh, waking up in Tilverton, the sleepy Cormyrian town just south of
    
    Shadowdale you realise sombody put a bit of body art in blue decorative tatts
    
    on your arms, and in Alias' tracks (If you have read the book you basically
    
    know what to do.) you must find out about the tatts and how to get rid of them.
    
    Maybe a priest can cast a remove curse spell?  Maybe you should just booze up
    
    at the pub and sleep like a bear in winter.  Our story begins......
    
    
    
      Tool up at the shop, then go visit the priest.  Have a booze up at the pub
    
    then go visit Filani the Sage and tell the truth.  Go back to the inn, rest,
    
    heal, memorise and save.  Now try and leave and you should run into Giogioni
    
    Wyvernspur doing another good impersonation of King Azoun.  Shit on the guards,
    
    and then shit on another wave.  Now head for the nearest alley and follow the
    
    thief.
    
    
    
      Go through the Tilverton thieves guild and go to the treasure room, Here you
    
    will get some dust (Its Dust of Dissappearance), you should save this for the
    
    end fight (Unless of course you are a masochist).  Now make your way to one of
    
    the exits.

    2. TILVERTON SEWERS : 1 Level sewer
    
      Starting at 0,4 Make your way up through the sewers stopping off at all the
    
    points on the map.  The trolls and Neo-Otyugh are tough battles.  If you need
    
    to advance, then stop off at the secret Thievs Guild Training Hall.  When you
    
    meet the Knight of Myth Drannor tell him that you are either a friend of the
    
    princess or that you have allegience to no one.  (I think that was an option),
    
    either way he should let you pass.

    3. FIRE KNIVES GUILD : 1 Level Thieves Guild
    
      This place has a few secret doors, somtimes the door appears on one side of
    
    the wall, but not on the other side.  There is also one one-way door that I
    
    know of.  This place is pretty easy as there are few battles, and then they
    
    only consist of 6 or 8 Fire Knives.  Make your way to point 1 and wait for the
    
    blades to stop, now continue on to point 2 and interrogate the nice
    
    co-operative folks for some information.  At point 3 attack to gain the
    
    surprise and rescue the cleric, friend to the Knight of Myth Drannor.  Go to
    
    point 4 for some information, then on to point 5, 6, 7 and 8. Save your game,
    
    get healed and spelled up.  Now enter the door to point 9 and face the leader
    
    of the Fire Knives, Princess Naccacia (I think she is a thief by trade) and the
    
    Wyvenspur fop, Giogi.  Slaughter the thieves and the Zhentish fiend and watch
    
    the ending.  See the bond dissappear?  Now you have to kill the other masters
    
    of your bonds.....

    4. OVERLAND MAP.
    
      This is the first time you will be going overland, and because you can go in
    
    many directions I'll give you some general advice.  Go to all the places on the
    
    map.  At this stage DO NOT ENTER Yulash, Zhentil Keep or Hap just yet.  Go to
    
    all the towns pubs and listen to gossip.  Travel by the wilderness and the
    
    roads to discover some locations, items, and fights.  Travel around the
    
    overland gaining experience until your characters are around level 7 or 8.
    
    
    
      Go to the Standing stone where a mysterious mentor will direct you to go
    
    towards Hap.  Make sure you are fully healed up.
    
    
    
    
    
    5. VILLAGE OF HAP : 1 Level small village
    
      This is where you will run into lots of Dark Elf patrols.  Don't take any
    
    Dark Elf equipment as it disintergrates in sunlight, so don't be caught
    
    weaponless or armourless.  Go to location 3 and meet Akbar Bel Akash the
    
    greengrocer (he he he) and allow him to join the party.  Walk around town and
    
    fight about 7 or 8 Dark Elf patrols using location 3 as a base.  After you have
    
    killed of the patrols head for the barn, which is location number 4. Here you
    
    will meet the Efreet and about 3 Dark Elves.  Kill them and you will get a map
    
    that will lead you to the cave of Hap.

    6. DARK ELF CAVERN : 1 Level Volcanic Cave
    
      Before you can even take a step inside you'll be attacked by a group of
    
    Salamanders.  First off, go around the corner in a southerly direction and meet
    
    up with the Swanmays.  If you have a woman in your party she will recieve the
    
    mark of the Swanmays as well as a special quest.  When you find the room full
    
    of Salamanders, parlay slyly and you can open all six chests for some items and
    
    mucho exps.  Now run along and earn some experience points by killing off the
    
    Drow Fighters, the Drow Clerics and then the Drow Mages.  Standing outside the
    
    door to point number 7, heal up and get enspelled for a battle with some
    
    Efreets.  Follow the corridor around the corner to the point 8, jump in feet
    
    first and kill off the guards and salamanders.  Heal, spell up, save and get
    
    ready to face Crimdrac the Dracholich, hes no Thiszult, Rauglothgor or
    
    Aghaztamn but hes still tough.  Get close and surround him from all sides and
    
    hack away.  Becareful which spells you cast as he's immune to some, plus the
    
    confined area.

      At the top of the tower you can either attack Dracandros or Parly nicely with
    
    dragons as both will achieve the same result.  Take out the Efreets and Drow.
    
    Here you should rest up and save before going down the stairs.

    TOWER OF DRACANDROS : LEVEL 4
    
      As soon as you come down the stairs you will be attacked by a Drow Fighter.
    
    He is very tough.  Get close to him and hack away as well as cast spells like
    
    Lightning and Magic Missles, etc as other spells are ranged and will help him
    
    finish you off.  Make sure you take his Plate Mail +4 and Shield +2.  Go to
    
    point 4 which is the Trial of the Sphere.  Let Akabar do this for you.  Don't
    
    panic when it starts getting close as will move away and wipe out the other
    
    guy.  Now collect some nice treasure.  Go back to point 3 if you want to play
    
    with some Wyverns, nasty stuff them so get your group into position and guard
    
    until they come at you.  Spell them and hack away.  Exit down the stairs to
    
    level 3.

      Not much on this level.  The Dark Elf warrior is an illusion.  Before the
    
    exit is some Owlbears and a few Drow fighters.  Chew-em-up and spit-em-out so
    
    you can get to level 2.

      Ahhh, this is what I like, another small level with nothing happening.  Don't
    
    pickup the paper, its a bomb.  Go to point 2 and find the pool, delve into the
    
    bottom to retrieve Silks pod and then go to Dracandros' chambers and search for
    
    some booty, then hit the stairs down.

      Hey, another level with nothing happening.  Walk around to the first door
    
    then go straight ahead, confrot the Wyverns and heal up cause behind door
    
    number 1 is the infamous Dracandros.  Wipe out everybody with the usual
    
    tactics, but DON'T try and hit Dracandros with melee weapons.  Hit him only
    
    with missile weapons and spells because he will cast a fireshield opon himself.
    
    What?  Don't know what a Fireshield is?  Well, whatever damage you do to him
    
    will be done to you in return but double.  So if you hit him for 25hps you will
    
    automatically lose 50hps, but this only works on melee weapons....  Snatch his
    
    loot, wands especially as there is a wand of Icestorm and one of Fireballs.
    
    Exit to the caves and give the pod to Silk, collect the treasure and head for
    
    the standing stone.

    8. YULASH : 1 Level City
    
      Travel from Hap to the Standing stone and talk with your mysterious mentor
    
    who will direct you to "Seek Green to the NW".  Head for Yulash where you can
    
    have a mass orgy with the curvy cultists of Moander.
    
    
    
      Ahh, what a lovely place, we got the Plumes, the Zhents, Mounds, Looters and
    
    Cultists...  The best thing to do is to ask permission to enter, talk sly and
    
    go with the guards.  You will find yourselves outside the captains room, walk
    
    to the door and you will run into some Zhentish pigs.  Kill the Zhents and talk
    
    nice to the Commander (Who should notice that you have one of the Swanmays in
    
    your party.....) he will give you free run of the ruins as well as the mess
    
    hall and the sleeping quarters.
    
    
    
      First off, heal and spell up then head out the front door and straight down
    
    the corridor, round the corner and down to point 6 on the map, obviously you
    
    will have to fight of Zhents and Shambling mounds which are pretty tough.  Pop
    
    into the room round the corner and heal up.  Now proceed to point 7 and kill
    
    the Shambling Mounds, this will let you get your hands on a wand of defoilation
    
    and a wand of lightning bolts.  The wand of defoilation is VERY effective on
    
    mounds but save this for later when your inside the Pit of Moander.  Now go to
    
    point 7 near the north wall and enter the Pit of Moander......

    Get in and out as fast as you can (But I have to map the fucken thing.....)
    
    
    
    PIT OF MOANDER : LEVEL 1
    
      Trundle down the corridor to the first door where you will smell baked bread.
    
    Go through the door to point 1 and meet Alias and Dragonbait.  Tell her the
    
    truth and invite them into your party.  Go back out to the main corridor and
    
    head down to point 2 and exit down the stairs.

    PIT OF MOANDER : LEVEL 2
    
      At point 2 examine the Zhent to find some information.  Proceed down to point
    
    3 where you will find some cultists and slugs.  Attack for surprise and make a
    
    meal out of them.  Proceed straight down the end of the corridor to point 4,
    
    but before you enter the door heal, spell and save.  This next attack comes in
    
    2 waves.  First you will be attacked by Mogion, Cultists, Shambling Mounds and
    
    maybe even vegipygmies.  Save your Wand of Defoilation.  Before you end this
    
    battle use heal spells and potions as the next battle starts straight away.
    
    This time you will face 3 Bit'O'Moanders.  This is where you use your wand of
    
    defoilation.  Go and search behind the altar to find Mogions stash.  Now
    
    somehow, heal and spell up.  Run for the stairs at point 1 like a madman
    
    possessed.

      Go to point 4 and evade the slugs then head on to point 3. This is where the
    
    cultists will make a last ditch attempt to stop the "Chosen Ones".  Now exit
    
    out into the wilderness.  Camp and heal up.

    10. ZHENTIL KEEP : 1 Level pigsty of goatbangers from hell.
    
      Travel from Yulash to the Stone, just to be told to seek "Black to the north"
    
    which means you got to go to the Zhentillar stronghold.  (Mulmaster comes in
    
    later)
    
      Beware of HighPriests they cast Fireshield spells on themselves.  Pretty
    
    straight forward solution open to you (unlike me who had to map the thing).
    
      From the enterence head up around the alleyways to point 11 where you will
    
    meet Olive Ruskettle.  Read the journal entries and follow her into the temple.
    
    She will lead you to the cell of Dimswart the sage.  Read his journal entry and
    
    take him with you.  Go into the room next door to point 15 and look in the
    
    mirrors a few times, then exit the room and into the room in front of your
    
    face, put search on and go to the west wall.  Now your in the main chapel.
    
    Again put search on and find the trapdoor.  It is trapped so use a detect
    
    spell.  Inside is a Wand of Paralysation.  Now go to the west wall and go down
    
    the side until you meet a Medusa.  Follow her, its your only way out.  She will
    
    deposit you at the feet of Dexam......  (Have not figured out how to get into
    
    the room behind the magic shop, even though there are three doors into
    
    it?????????)

      What?  Whaddaya mean Journal entry 59.  I don't have a Journal Enrty 59.
    
    Damn you Electronic Arts Australia.  So much for quality control.....  You
    
    didn't even give me a complete Adventurers Journal...  Argggghhhhhhhh......
    
      Whoa, I have just finished mapping it, and by God it one hard place.  Save
    
    very often.  I garuntee you will loose at least one character to Death if you
    
    are not careful when you fight HighPriests...
    
      First off you will meet Dexam the Beholder, then Fzoul and then you will lose
    
    another Bond.  Now for the hard part, escape.  Travel out the door to the north
    
    and make your way down to point 3 where you will find te remains of an Elven
    
    fighter, this will give you a map (Journal Entry) as well as being able to use
    
    the Area Option, also you should find some treasure.  Now go from the bootom,
    
    up around the side and along the tope to point 5 where you will find Dexam, a
    
    Medusa and some Minotaurs.  Get into close range to Dexam and hack away as he
    
    alone can wipe out your party.  Now travel down to point 6 and to the Exit at
    
    7. Outside you will meet Olive Ruskettle as well as see Nacacia in the
    
    background.  At this point in time I have no idea what she is doing in it,
    
    maybe she is a Harper????

    12. MYTH DRANNOR : 1 Level Cemetary (Thank Mystra is not as hard as Valhingen)
    
      Go to the Standing Stone where you will find that your helpfull friend is
    
    actually Tyranthraxus in disguise.  He will tell you to seek him in Myth
    
    Drannor.  Go to Myth Drannor and enter the city.
    
      If you wish not to fight Thri-Kreen patrols, parlay and give the word
    
    Tyranthraxus and they will let you go.
    
      First thing to do is go to point 1 and greet the elven spirit, and in turn
    
    she will tell you of a Thri-Kreen secret.  Go around the corner to point 2
    
    where you will meet some more Knights of Myth Drannor.  Go to point 3 and talk
    
    to the elven spirit of Princess Dameir\Demeaur(SP) and she will give you her
    
    blessing.  Advanve down to point 13 and 14.  Replace the skeletons back in the
    
    graves.  Not go to point 4 where you will meet a Red Plume.  Now, how could a
    
    Red Plume have ancestors burried in an Elven Graveyard???  Accept and follow
    
    him to a grave where he will show you his tru nature.  Put the skeleton back in
    
    the grave.  Do not loot any bodies or else you won't get some valuable treausre
    
    later on.  Go to point 6 and bury the skeleton.  At point 7 and 8 are nests of
    
    spiders.  Go to point 9 where you will be invited to speak with the Queen.  Go
    
    through the doors and talk with the Queen who will notice you have a Swanmay in
    
    your party.  She will give you some weapons to help defeat Tyranthraxus.  At
    
    point 12 you will meet the Nameless Bard.  Point 15 houses some Thri-Kreen
    
    guards and a cache of weapons and money.  Go back to where you recieved the
    
    Princesses blessing and walk through the trees next to the wall and you will
    
    find yourself in the Ruins of Myth Drannor.

    13. MYTH DRANNOR : 1 Level Ruins.
    
      Right about now I started to get very bored with mapping, which wasn't helped
    
    by the fact that three quarters of the walls in this maze are ruins and can be
    
    walked through, so where most walls appear on the map, they can be walked
    
    through.  I also left out 1 or 2 encounters because I was eager to finish the
    
    game.  Parlay Haughtily with patrols and they will let you pass, else Parlay
    
    slyly and pay a tithe.
    
      First off you should meet a Rackshasa who will tell you about a gambling
    
    habbit and a treasure trove.  Follow him around the corner where you will
    
    confronted by another Rackshasa.  Ally yourself against Birsheya then go
    
    through the dooe with Search on to find the treasure.  Head down the path to
    
    point three where you will meet a frightened man.  Rescue him and he will tell
    
    you where the treasure is.  Walk through the wall to find a gambling den.  At
    
    point 6 Nameless will pop up again.  The treasure is at point 5, you must have
    
    search on to find it.  At point 7 a deal will be struck by a Rackshasa if you
    
    are confident enough.  At point 8, its a trap, you will be attacked by a
    
    Rackshasa and some margoyles.

    14. MYTH DRANNOR : 1 Level Temple.
    
      This is another "I just want to finish the game" level.  Few encounters are
    
    marked on the map.  You start out being called in and have to sit through a
    
    length "Hit Enter" key story sequence.  Sooner or later you gain control and
    
    find yourselves inside a church style layout.  Run out the door to points 3 and
    
    4, this will wipe out most of the margoyle and hellhound attacks.  Go to point
    
    1 which are the stairs.  This appears to be a two level structure but the maze
    
    is all on one map so I left it at one level.  The stairs will leave you point
    
    2. Run round to point 5, but before you go in the door camp and use the Dust of
    
    Dissapearance on the party.  Go in and confront Tyranthraxus.  He is a Storm
    
    Giant with an AC of -5 and 100 HPs.  Tough.  Hack, Spell and shit on the
    
    Margoyles and HighPriests.  Don't forget to take out Tyranthraxus.  Fingers
    
    crossed that you have all three talismans otherwise you can't win.......
