fChampions of Krynn(PC) FAQ/Walkthrough version 1.0.0 by Andrew Schultz firstname.lastname@example.org This FAQ will refer to and be augmented considerably by the maps I sent to GameFAQs. The maps are complete for every area. However, I currently have combat and paragraph details to fill in. ================================ OUTLINE 1. INTRODUCTION 2. CONTROLS 2-1. MOVING 2-2.

CREDITS ================================ 1. INTRODUCTION Champions of Krynn(CoK) is a relatively short and straightforward entry in the early AD&D series. It contains some new character classes and races and weird enemies, and in general levelling up is not so important here after original struggles. Magic items are not either. Money's also not terribly important, either. You have about 15 16x16 grids to work through and an overworld with, in general, clearly marked towns and such. Your mission is primarily to recover the Dragonlance but also to find who is attacking whom, and what sort of dodges the enemy has. The story is well executed although I found the last bit a bit silly. the-underdogs.info has CoK and Project 64 has the rule book and adventurer's journal needed to break the copy protection. Wikipedia has a good overview of the game here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Champions_of_Krynn 2. CONTROLS 2-1. MOVING 2-2. COMBAT WITH STRATEGIES 3. STARTING OUT 4. WALKTHROUGH Knight Ranger or Knight(the game doesn't last long enough for a ranger to get spells) Cleric/Fighter/White Mage < any Elf Fighter/Red Mage < any Elf Fighter/Cleric < any Elf Kender Thief I didn't worry about deity for the part-clerics. Because you can win with L8 guys you might as well use multi-classers. Buy scale for everyone you can, and shields and maces. Except your Kender, who gets leather and a hoopak. There's a fight right away outside where you can get some gold to complete the collection. 4-1. OVERVIEW 4-2. DETAILS You start out in the commandant's outpost at the NW of the world. Paragraph 51 at the start. Then 40, 23, 17, 34. 4-2-1. THROTL Throtl is the first place to go. Your mission is to find Caramon, and once you do that, you have catacombs to work through. Along the way you will see baaz terrifying people. Rescue these people to start. Baaz are functionally just like goblins or orcs in other games. Throtl is 2N E of the original garrison and you can even use the Numkey pad to move diagonally. The nonhuman enemies are easy for the most part. Go 2N W or 2N E to get a taste of it. Yu can go W* N*-1 E for a nice treasure fight. You're probably not ready for the big treasure yet behind the secret door(6N 3E S then fight clerics, who can paralyze, then 2W 2S,) but you can probably use a bunch of bless spells to get to the soldier NPC in the north. He will ask to join, but don't let him. He attacks, but you can get plate mail from him. Go 2W 3S to get a Kender to join your party, then 3S for another guy. They'll be useful. Note treasure spots on the map, too. Rest as need be here. You need to get to Caramon who is S W S W S 3E S 3E S from the second NPC. Even magic missiles are a big help here--just hit the clerics. Use hold person a lot, too, on the magic users This is one of the first fights where novice mode is nice. Return to the outpost for experience. Once you get to Caramon a fight is unlocked in the SW study(formerly empty) and you can get to the NE area. From the 4 way intersection, E* N and ENENENWNWNW and S to fight some minor draconians. S* gets you to the big fight which can net experience or return to the outpost again. There are a few fights off in the corners of this NE part. Blast through to 9,0 to advance. 4-2-2. CATACOMBS This is a 16x16 maze chopped into strips. Save frequently as fights pop up a lot and if you face humans it can drain you. After 2 fights in a row you will find treasure in a small room, then plod on for more treasure. It may be long but it is one way. One of the treasures is +1 chain which is nice for mobility. There are a lot of descriptive squares but no forced fights til 3,15. Win that, then 2W 2N E 3N E N 2W and chase the fleeing enemies. The eggs get you more experience at the outpost. 4-2-3. GARGATH Check who has high charisma to sneak in. You will have to fight your way out but you'll have a bit better weapons then. 3N to one fight then S E 2N 2E 4N W S for another. The gauntlets are handy. Some races don't get 18(00) strength and these gauntlets do the trick and improve AC by 2. Resting in the inn may get you attacked after 10 hours but the fights aren't bat. Hit the draconians at 7,7 and break through to the secret door maze. E, then ENW is a nice aside for treasure(but snakes an be lethal) then go N and W through two more fights. 4-2-4. GARGATH KEEP This is a series of floors that can actually be packed into a 16x16 map. See mine on GameFAQs for how, if you are interested. You can bypass most of these levels. 1: 2N W 2N 2W U 2: 5E S gets info that will toggle another square later. N 3W N E N 2W N for p#42, then S E* U. 3: 3S 3W. Nothing on this level. 4: You can just go up but there's a lucrative fight N* E* S* and a dangerous one that gets scrolls N W* S*. It is worth it though. 5. Go right up. Nothing here. 6. W 2N through the wall. Get the treasure and rest. Big fight S E N so bring the spells. E S. Keep going up from here and if you're too tired, go back down to level 6 and rest. Eventually you almost get to Myranti, who runs away. 4-2-5. SIR DARGAARD'S TOMB Very easy really. Three trials in one-way maps for the most part. For the battle part you can be dishonorable and momentarily switch to novice mode if you choose. Well, you're not doing that in the HONOR test, so it's okay. Honor: N* 2E S E and give everything. E* N* 2W and take the right sword as instructed. S E S W* N W and give the sword. Fear: make sure your knight has 30+ HP for each time he steps in the first two pools. 25+ should do but the pools give 30 damage and you risk getting near -5/-10 HP and death. 3E S W 3S, yes. E N 4E yes E 2N 3W 3N 2E yes--he is healed! Battle: W*-1 S 3E 2S, turn the skeletons. 2S E 3S 2W, another easy fight. N 2W N, save and heal, N and defeat the skeletal dragons, who thankfully do not breathe. Now go to the south of center, S* E* S (knight answers) W* (knight answers) 2S 4E and get the treasure. You will fight a batch of Draconians on the way out. I don't know if you can take the other treasure after you're done?? 4-2-6. OGRE BASE This one is pretty easy. Flee from all patrols. W S* 6W N. Be friendly. Go to 12,11 and win that fight. That's all I did here as a bug in the program thought I had the ogre alliance, but apparently the 12,11 fight ticks off something to happen later. 4-2-7. JELEK Jelek has some nice items. If you've saved enough, get a wand of magic missile, or cash in your gems/jewelry. Come back later if you want to, too. There's a guy called Shyla who bugs you. When he's gone, enemies attack. That's suspicious. To get rid of him, go to his pal's house for a tough fight. You may need to fireball your own guys due to the tight quarters, but it is worth it. I killed the ally who joined me, but she still gave the password RUMOR. That only gets you to a rest area in the NE. The graveyard, which Shyla says is sacred, has an interesting message(#71) to the east and a big fight in the NW that nets more eggs. You can grind out experience turning monsters here too but the big fight gets experience at the outpost. 4-2-8. NERAKA You can't enter Neraka the right way until you get Maya, and when you do it needs to be a one-shot deal. From 15,8 go 2E S*(secret base) E* s(N is a tough fight) W* 2S W* S to get to Sir Karl, who is dying from his prison escape. (There are other fixed fights, but nothing critical.) West Neraka is where you go without Maya, and it has a good fight with a green dragon and other squares where you run into Draconians every time you step on them, which is not fun. 4-2-9. NERAKA PRISON Straightforward enough. 4S E* leads to a fight and prison cells. Clue #56 in the first on the right. W and S and E and another figh and an ally beyond the next door. E* S to a fight, then release the prisoners from each of six cells below. The N and NE have prison guards. The NW is a good place to bump up experience. The fights to rescue prisoners are easy. And you get additional experience for doing so. Eggs are S*-1 W*-2 N* W from the center. There is a fight with guards and a green dragon at 3,15 you will want to rest up for. It's a good test. Where to rest, NE?? 4-2-10. SOUTHERN OUTPOST Straightforward instructions but once you disrupt the guards you may have to save every 4 steps. Enter and talk to the commandant. On leaving, hook S W N and enter the secret door east at 0,9. Rescue some prisoners. W* N* and then E to the third house on the left. Win the fight then S W* S to the door and 3E N. Win, then there is a fight with the green dragon 2N. Everyone is friendly now. Yay. 4-2-11. SANCTION You need to win one fight to trigger anther. S* 3E S* E 3N and fight the guy. Retreat, then (4,7) has a woman screaming. Gn 2N E* S to beat minotaurs(pray first and it's easy) then N W* S*-1 3W 2N to visit the woman. Now Huerzyd is no longer dead as it was before if you entered from 15,7. As an aside, taking the bridge just destroys it after a fight, so don't bother. Sanction also has training and a tavern, which can be useful. 4-2-12. HUERZYD AND CATACOOMBS 9E N E is one fight. W S E 4S W 3S 2W N E 2N 2W S for treasure. N W 2S E S 3E 3N E S 5E 3N W and a fight which allows E N to see a secret door. 2N 2W. The catacombs are pretty one-way but there are mobat fights, so play save- and-advance if you want. The 2x2 room to the side lets you rest. 4-2-13. TEMPLE OF DUERGHAST S8 W S and E leads to a fight but is not critical. 5S and W spirals to the Dragonlance, which is powerful. Retreat, then S* 4W 3N W* S*. The arch leads to the main part. Be healed to fight Skyla as you need to knock out the mages n the first room you see(I just go S 3W 2S E.) In the middle of the 4x8, take the lower door on the right and S 2E N. This gets you some valuable papers that explain what is happening and is an easier fight for the same than the DL. Exit left and go down the bottom. L* for dragon eggs. You can exit here?? or go N* at the gate. Beat the undeads in the arena, which triggers a fight with Sir Lebaum(2S E S.) It's a tough one. Kill him with whatever you have. Retreat and kill the messengers. 4-2-14. FLYING FORTRESS A few text sequences later you are at the fortress! Go E N through the gate(another fight) and 2N 2E. More Draconians. Follow the stairs to the east--a bunch of 2x2 rooms. You'll get to the top where you will crash land in some ruins. N* 3E 3N 5E 3S 2W to (1) on the map. A few steps west and you make it to level 2. S W S E* and surprise the enemies and get their disguises. Follow the arch to the next bit. S* W* S* E* 2S W*, again surprising enemies when you can. If disguised, order them around. The dragons will fly you to the Kernen base. 4-2-15. This is not hard. Just peek in and make friends with everyone, including Draconians. Set a fire if they offer drinks. If you're not disguised, you may have fights. A crown at 14,7 should be surrendered to the guards to the west. Then visit the dragon at 3,11 and he will make the combat at the gate easier. Visit the training N 3E S* from there as you probably got another level from all this. You can dirty-mack the humans you greeted elsewhere to make the fight to get to the inner compound even easier yet, but you don't really need to. Ogres guard you so you can rest up after each fight. Use a fireball per fight--two if you're playing honestly. Once inside, E 3N win, N 2E N S 2E N to make a salve so you can go west. Be healed and charged. W* S, win, 2S, win. Save and rest up. You can't enter the door N* so you have to use the passage. You fight an aurak and some enemies, then three dragons in the next room, then you win. 4-3. OUTLINE 5. CHEATING 5-1. HEX EDITING 5-2. JOURNAL ENTRIES 5-3. RULE BOOK HEADINGS End of FAQ Proper ================================ 6. VERSIONS 1.0.0 sent to GameFAQs 10/14/2007, complete but rather undetailed 7. CREDITS project64.c64.org for the rule book and adventurer's journal Shay Addams's Quest for Clues for the original walkthrough. I did not quote from it, but it helped me. I hope I have been able to fill in details about some triggering events that it did not have space for.
