Flames and insults will be deleted upon arrival. Also, please note that if you email me with other general questions about the game, I can't answer them. Check one of the other FAQs on the game. This FAQ started out as an attempt to make myself a quick reference sheet for the basic schematics in the game, especially since the reference book is wrong too often for my liking or just didn't mention the parts I needed. The basic schematics listed here are based on what the game says and NOT the manual. In the event the manual is actually correct (gasp), I will update this mini-FAQ. Also, you cannot use the new schematics unless you have a degree in the college in which the schematic is for. For example, I have a schematic for fuel, which is in the explosives school. Despite the fact that it seems it should be a fairly easy schematic to use, no such luck. I don't have any points in explosives, so I can't use this. Once I figure out what level of degree is needed for the schematics, I'll update the FAQ. 1.1 Revision History Rev 1.0 November 4, 2001 Started FAQ. Posted to GameFAQs. Rev 1.1 November 15, 2001 Added 20 new schematics. Gave permission for some sites to host the FAQ. (see the very end) ~~~~~~ 2.0 Schematics The list of schematic disciplines is in the order listed in the game. The schematics within the disciplines are divided into two categories: the schematics obtained from degrees are listed first in the order they were obtained and then the schematics found throughout the world are listed in alphabetical order. The following key can be used to determine how to make (or obtain) the "ingredients" to make certain items. * Can be made with schematics obtained from purchasing degrees. ^ Can be made with schematics found or purchased. 2.1.a Herbology Healing Salve <- Ginka Root + Kadura Stem Fatigue Restorer <- Cocoa Leaves + Tobacco Leaves Poison Cure <- Kadura Stem + Venom Fatigue Limiter <- Fatigue Restorer* + Witchbane Accelerate Healing <- Healing Salve* + Cocoa Leaves Wonder Drug <- Accelerate Healing* + Poppy Flowers Cure All <- Wonder Drug* + Big Chief Snake Oil 2.1.b Found Herbology Schematics Miracle Cure <- Wonder Drug* + Fortifier^ Just when you thought you'd seen all there was to see! Here comes the Miracle Cure! By mixing the Wonder Drug and the Fortifier, this unbelievable elixir not only completely heals you, but it also temporarily increases the rate at which your body heals itself! Do miracles never cease? Reanimator <- Cure All* + Large Capacitor [This schematic is printed on a strange sort of paper, and looks to be very old. The writing is faded almost beyond recognition.] Experiments upon the life force.....regenerative chemical compounds.....unbelievable results.....completely revived and functioning normally.....advances.... Vendigrothian science..... Wheel Clan Spectacles <- Eye Glasses + Kathorn Crystal The Wheel cannot be found, With the eyes of your birth. But only with those of crystal, With sight born of the earth. 2.2.a Chemistry Strong Poison <- Varham's Aqua Vitae + Monroe's Cleaner Charges <- Electrolyte Solution + Metal Plates Animal Scent <- Bromide + Morning Star Perfume Corrosive Acid <- Pete's Carbolic Acid + Sulphur Pills Hallucinite <- Mushrooms + Varham's Aqua Vitae Paralyzer <- Potassium Chloride + Strong Poison* Anaesthisizer <- Hallucinite* + Bromide 2.2.b Found Chemistry Schematics Fortifier <- Wine + Varham's Aqua Vitae Feeling down just before that all-important to-the-death duel? Dozing just before the decisive battle? Then look no further than the Fortifier! By combining a common bottle of Wine and Varham's Aqua Vitae, you can create an elixir to bring back your energy, and make you a more formidable opponent! Fascinating! Mental Inhibitor <- Acid + Mind Marvel* Looking for an extra advantage against that inimical magick user? Look no further than the amazing Mental inhibitor. Through combining Acid and the Mind Marvel, you can create an insidious weapon to dull the wizard's willpower! You'll have him run through while he's still trying to remember even the most basic of spells! Note: I don't know yet whether this needs Pete's Carbolic Acid or Corrosive Acid. Necromizer <- Fortifier^ + Large Capacitor Are you always the last man standing? Surrounded by the corpses of friends who just didn't make the grade? Well, with the astonishing Necromizer, you can put those comrades to good use! By combining the Fortifier and a large capacitor, you can raise even the most mutilated of corpses to fight mindlessly by your side! Potion of Paralysis <- Strong Poison + Wine Oftentimes, death need not be the only solution, and the Potion of Paralysis was made with this in mind! A combination of the Mushrooms and the Varham's Aqua Vitae, this lethal liquid will leave their bodies completely disabled while you choose their fate. Be merciful, or save them for torture! Either way, you've won the day! Note: The text on the schematic calls for Mushrooms and Varham's Aqua Vitae while the pictures on the schematic call for Strong Poison and Wine. I believe Strong Poison and Wine should be used since the Mushrooms and Vitae should make Hallucinite. 2.3.a Electrical Electrical Light <- Lantern + Filament Charged Ring <- Copper Ring + Capacitor Flow Specktrometer <- Small Electrical Parts + Compass Shocking Staff <- Large Capacitor + Staff Chapeau of Magnetic Inversion <- Electrical Coil + Top Hat Healing Jacket <- Electrical Harness + Leather Armour Tesla Rod <- Tesla Coil + Shocking Staff* 2.3.b Found Electrical Schematics Flow Disruptor <- Electrical Harness + Quality Iron Shield Only now have we discovered the magick-disrupting properties of electricity, and those properties are taken full advantage of in the Flow Disruptor!

Stupendous! 2.4.a Explosives Molotov Cocktail <- Fuel^ + Rag Flash Grenade <- Magnesium + Wine Smoke Grenade <- Tom's Fertilizer + CK Sugar Stun Grenade <- Stearic Acid + Saltpeter Explosive Grenade <- Black Powder + Metal Can Fire Obstruction <- Kerosene + Liquid Soap Dynamite <- Nitroglycerin + Saltpeter 2.4.b Found Explosives Schematics Bullets <- Saltpeter + Charcoal With the recent advances in the field of Gunsmithing, it only follows that similar steps forward are necessary in ammunition and explosives. Using the reactive properties of Charcoal and Saltpeter, a new and better bullet can be manufactured quickly and inexpensively. Effectively used in both pistols and rifles. Concussion Grenade <- Explosive Grenade* + Sheet Metal Looking to do some real damage to those pesky ogres? Then the Concussion Grenade is just what you're looking for! The combination of the Explosive Grenade and Sheet Metal, the Frag Grenade was created for the technologist who just needs that extra bit of assurance. They won't be getting up after this one rips them to tatters! Outstanding! Note: The use of the words 'Frag Grenade' concern me slightly here since this is supposed to be a Concussion Grenade. Please note that you might not get what you think you will here. When I find out what it makes, I'll update this note. Electrocution Grenade <- Flash Grenade* + Large Capacitor Unfortunately, some creatures are well fortified against the raw forces of a standard explosive grenade. For those special occasions, there is the Electrocution Grenade! By combining a Flash Grenade and a Large Capacitor, you can surprise them with an electrical explosion that should leave them wilted and whimpering! Fuel <- Wine + Brewer's Yeast Today's technologist is often in need of a quick and accessible source of fuel, and knowledge in chemistry makes this a reality. By using easily found objects as a bottle of Moone's Fine Wine and common brewer's yeast, an efficient fuel is created. [Warning: Personal consumption of fuel not recommended.] Mustard Gas Grenade <- Corrosive Acid + Explosive Grenade* Newly developed by the brilliant scientific minds of our age, the Mustard Gas Grenade demoralizes one's opponents by burning the very membranes from their lungs!

I'd also like to thank Alexei for confirming that you do need a certain level of degrees to use some of the schematics. ~~~~~~ 4.0 Legal Stuff This mini-FAQ is copyright 2001 Amanda Torline (aka Kala Reshana).
