<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<()>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

First, let me welcome you to G2:NotR. NotR has been described by officials as 
being more of an "add-in" than an "add-on", in the aspect that it "adds in" an
extra world with new quests, monsters, features, and characters, all in the
original game lineology, without having much effect on the main/original story
line of the game. Unlike an add-on, which would take place after the events of
the original (where you could use your saved character and continue), NotR
requires that you start fresh, but it's well worth it.

NotR is *hard*. I reccomend it only for seasoned Gothic players who really know
their ins and outs of the series. Not only is the monster difficulty and monst-
er quantity increased, but character development is now also much more difficu-
lt. On the plus side, however, NotR gives increased opportunities for experien-
ce and free skills, so it all balances out.

Because of Gothic's free-roam nature, it is nearly impossible to write a step
by step walkthrough and cover everything that needs to be covered. Instead, I
will outline areas by characters, quests, trainers, points, etc, and you can
look up what specific part you need assistance on. There will also be "Quick
Guides" which will be brief in detail for more broad tasks, particularly the
main plot-line to explain in more direct 'step-by-step' terms how to do certain
key things. 

In this guide, I will not cover the entirety of Gothic 2 - that is handled
quite extraordinarily well by Ellusion. This guide will cover all the statisti-
cs and features that are new to NotR, and will feature a walkthrough for the
new "add-in" plot line added in the expansion. In this guide, I'm assuming 
you've played the original, so I won't get into basics for explanations, expos-
ition, the main quest, etc. 

This Guide is open-ended, similar to how the game itself plays. Thus, it won't
get into how to build your character or tell you how to play. It is merely a
guideline for completing the game. I'm also not going into detail on loot and
other such things, because I feel the biggest thrill of the game is your perso-
nal exploration of the game, always finding new things. It's better for you to
find things yourself. Not to mention there's a crap-load of stuff to find, and
I'm too lazy to write it all out.


 - Version History:
	1.0 - The first version. There are still some things that I need to
	      double-check on another playthrough, but I believe this contains
	      close to everything, relatively accurate. If you notice anything
              that's incorrect or know any extra information, feel free to
	      e-mail me the information, N3Burgener@gmail.com.

 [G.1]   Changes to G2 in NotR
===============================================================================

- New dialogue with Xardas at the begining and a new FMV explaining the new
  content of NotR.
- Stat-upgrading costs more per point as they increase (1:1, 2:1, 3:1, 4:1,
  5:1).
- 1H and 2H weapon efficiency are no longer learned simultaneously. However, it
  still costs double to train past "Fighter" and triple to train past "Master".
- STR/DEX/MANA elixers are not as effective -- they add 3 to your stats, mana
  elixirs adding 5 to your mana. 
- STR/DEX amulets now give +10 instead of +15.
- Belt accessories have been added that can add +5 or +10 to STR/DEX or add
  extra defense to certain things (double defense if belts are matched with
  the appropriate armor, ie militia belt with militia armor).
- Jewelry sets have been added which give added bonuses for wearing both rings
  and the amulet in the set.
- Shrines of Innos give +1 to attributes. 
- Shrines of Beliar have been added, which give gold for permanent donations
  of stat points (HP and MP).
- New weapons have been added, including some with malus to your weapon skills.
- Pyrokar mentions the threats in the NE when undergoing the Test of Fire.
- Countless new NPC's added to Khorinis for involvement with the Water Mages
  and the Missing People / Bandits' Weapons Dealer quests.
- A new sub-region added to the 'pyramid' area in the NE indicated by the red
  X on the 'Very Old Map' (the Water Mages' digging site).
- New teleporter stones can teleport you one-way from place to place at your
  will; three total in Khorinis. 
- Stone Tablets can be found, which when read (if you've learned the language
  of the builders) increase your stats permanently.
- Dragons regenerate HP.
- New ways into Khorinis City.
- New monsters were added.
- Monsters are stronger and tougher.
- New Armors including Bandit and Pirate varieties.
- Access to wearable 'Citizens Clothing'.
- New ways to join the three guilds.
- Weapons now do more damage, but also require more STR/DEX. 
- Armor is stronger -- Heavy Dragon Hunter's and Heavy Paladin's armor are
  even in defense.
- The return of 'Acrobatics' from G1.
- New Spells added: Ice Lance, Dust Devil, Geyser, Storm, Waterfist, Root 
  Snare, Steal Energy, Beliar's Wrath, Create Guardian, Insect Swarm, Create
  Zombie, Cry of the Dead.
- Black Ore added, which slows down time to make more precise combat actions.
- New Potions: Pure Mana and Pure Life Energy.
- Probably some other stuff.

===============================================================================
 [G.2]   Tips/FAQs
===============================================================================
Here are some general strategies that should make your gaming experience
easier and more enjoyable, as well as make certain things clear right at the
begining. With the changes made to G2 in NotR, things are a lot harder, and
it is quite easy to make things much more difficult. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 [G.2.1] - General Tips
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Specialize in one type of combat and stat-point for the first few chapters.
  If you spread yourself out too thin, you'll find that you're inefficient
  with most combat-related situations and will easily get destroyed. Play with
  some weapons and decide whether you want to go 1H or 2H, and then stick to
  that. You can wait until a bit later on to learn ranged combat and such,
  once you're adequate at fighting with your sword.

- For easy money early on, get into the Thieves' Guild building and pray at
  the Shrine of Beliar in the rat-infested room, donating HP for 500g a day.
  You come by tons of Stone Tablets and such that will make your HP way higher
  than it normally would be, so investing some of that early on in hard cash
  isn't a bad idea.

- Start out with 1H sword skills and DEX, join the Thieves' Guild, learn how
  to pick locks and pick-pockets, and get to work. Increase your DEX so that
  you can be more efficient at the above, which will get you tons of free EXP
  and money early on, even just in Khorinis. Then, once you have 2400 gold, you
  can buy the Master Sword from Martin, which does 120 damage (with a 60 DEX
  requirement) and +10% skill to your 1H. This can all be done fairly early
  so that you've got one of the strongest weapons in the game almost at the
  start.

- Wait to use auxiliary means for increasing your stats (ie Stone Tablets, 
  potions, praying at Shrines of Innos, eating apples, mushrooms, etc) until
  after you've used your LP's to the point where it costs 5 LP for 1 stat. In
  this manner you get more bang for your buck -- use the LP while they're
  cheap, and you'll see better results in the end.

- Fighting stronger mobs earlier on isn't necesarily beneficial. In the amount
  of time it takes you to kill the mob you could have earned more exp killing
  easier mobs and exploring more. Not to mention, you'd be wasting a lot of
  money on arrows (as I know 80% of the tricks to killing mobs before you 
  would normally be able to involves using a bow/crossbow). Stick to the stuff
  that you can handle, and only dedicate the amount of time and effort for the
  harder mobs if they're in the way of something you want or need, otherwise
  leave them be until you're stronger -- when they become the equivilant of
  a bloodfly (early in the game) for exp and abundancy proportions. 


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 [G.2.2] - Fighting Monsters
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dragon Snapper:
	It's best to pull them away from the group so that you only fight one
	at a time. Simply walk close enough so that one will detect you and
	begin walking towards you. Back away. Once you've gotten it far enough
	away from the group, stand still and wait until it charges at you. Once
	it begins running at you, take a step back -- it will bite at you, but
	will come up short. Proceed to attack, getting in as many combos as
	possible before it backs away, being sure to keep your distance. It
	will make another lunge; take another step back, repeat.

Orc Warrior:
	When possible, try to limit fights with orcs to one-on-one. The best
	way to drop Orcs safely is to strafe around and hit them from the back.
	In doing this, you can in theory kill an orc at LVL1, if you have the
	patience to spend 15 minutes attacking it.

	The orc will begin running toward you, and so long as it's running, it
	will do an overhand slash at you. When it gets close enough to do the
	slash, strafe to the side and it'll miss you completely. From here, 
	start whacking at its back until it turns around. Begin moving back
	to get some distance (you defend as you move backward by default, so
	don't worry about getting hit). Keep moving back until you get enough
	distance for the orc to do another running attack, and repeat.

Fire Lizard:
	Fighting the fire lizard is similar to dealing with Dragon Snappers,
	in that you need to pull it away from any other lizards, and in the
	technique used to kill it. Make sure it's running to you -- once it's
	close, take a step back and its fire attack will miss. Get a hit or
	two in so that the lizard jumps back once or twice (don't get too close
	to it, though). If possible, take a step back to increase the distance
	between you, so that it begins to run at you again. Step back at the
	last second so that it misses, and repeat.

Skeletons:
	Quite frankly one of the toughest mobs in the game. Like any strong
	monster it's best to try to isolate them so that you only fight one
	at a time. Simply walk up until one of them unsheaths their sword, then
	turn and run the other direction until there's plenty of space. Then,
	the best strategy is to block until their sword hits yours, then follow
	up with a quick side-swipe, then immediately block again. They may
	occasionally get a hit in, but this is the best method that I've come
	by.

Shadowbeasts:
	Quite often when you come by a shadowbeast it's in a cave, and when
	it is in a cave, it's a piece of cake to take down. Without ever
	walking or running, jump from outside the cave over to the front of
	the shadowbeast so that you're facing its head. NPC's don't notice you
	if you jump around (with a few exceptional ones), thus the beast won't
	react until you hit it.

	Ready your sword, and begin attacking, pressing forward constantly.
	Once it's against a wall and has no room to move, begin swiping left
	to right repeatedly. If you time it right, the shadowbeast should get
	hit mid-swipe each time it tries, and you'll eventually take it down.

Trolls:
	Trolls, while big and ferocious, can be easily taken down. The secret
	is to constantly hit it from the back. When you first run up to it, the
	troll will howl. While it's doing this, run around behind it and begin
	hitting. It'll start turning, at which point you should begin to strafe
	until you're securely at its backside, and then get another two or
	three hits in. 

	The key is to keep moving so that it can never catch you and to put in
	as many hits when possible. Make sure to stafe entirely clockwise or
	entirely counterclockwise; don't mix it up. Sometimes you may have to
	realign yourself, in which case you should stop strafing, turn toward
	the troll, get closer, and begin strafing again. You can strafe faster
	than the troll can turn. 

Terrain:
	When a situation is too hard, use the terrain to your advantage. Climb
	up a small tree stump and shoot the enemy with a ranged weapon (if it
	can't jump). For large monsters like Demons, who can't fit through
	doorways, lure them to one and shoot them with a ranged weapon. Trap
	mobs against walls and beat them down. Fight Orc Warriors behind the
	shelter of a wall or tent so that Shamans can't attack until you're
	finished with the warriors. In short, play smart.

 [G.2.3] - FAQs
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Do I have to start over to play the bonus content of NotR, or can I continue
   from my old save file of G2?
A: You need to start fresh, but it'll be well worth it. With all the changes
   done to the G2 mechanics, it's a lot more challenging and will provide a
   whole new experience to the game.

Q: Lares won't take the ornament to the Water Mages? What do I have to do?
A: In short, start over. It's a glitch. See more details in the bugs section.

Q: Can you become a follower of Beliar by praying at shrines?
A: No -- praying at Shrines of Beliar only reward you with hard cash, there is
   no 'character alignment' for good or evil that will be influenced by doing
   such.

Q: What is 'Acrobatics'?
A: Acrobatics makes you jump farther (like a dive), usefull for a quick escape
   from a bad situation and crossing large crevasses. You also take less damage
   from high falls with acrobatics.

Q: How do I learn acrobatics?
A: It is automatically learned at 90 DEX. You can learn it at 60 DEX, however,
   if you equip a +10 amulet, +10 belt, and two +5 rings to get a total of +30
   to your DEX. Have your base DEX at 59, equip the accessories, then learn 
   one point of DEX and you'll permanently learn acrobatics.

Q: Why aren't there more FAQs?
A: Because the author, N3B, can't think of any more common questions about the
   expansion or changes to G2 with the expansion. If you know any more that
   could be added, feel free to drop an e-mail. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 [G.2.4] - Bugs
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Perhaps the most treacherous bug in NotR involves Lares. When you're trying
  to join the Ring of Water, Vatras gives you an ornament to give to Lares,
  which he is to take to the Water Mages. You give it to him, and after some
  talk and side-quest, he agrees that he can take you with him. An option will
  then arise when you say "Let's go," to go to take the ornament to the Water
  Mages. BUT -

  If you've already had him take you to Onar's farm, the option disappears! I'm
  told that the option opens up later in the game, like chapter 3 or 4, but I
  have not confirmed this. At any rate, the ornament that you gave Lares is a
  part of the key to opening the Portal, but you can't get it back from him,
  'nor will he give it to you, thus you can't get into Jharkendar until it's
  delivered to the Water Mages the proper way.

  There isn't much that can be done to fix this, and most people experienced
  this bug the first time through. The only real option is to grit your teeth
  and start over, which isn't necesarily a bad thing. By now you've figured 
  out a lot about what's changed that you can do it better next time.

- When you meet Dexter and get in combat with him and the bandits, Greg shows
  up and begins killing them all. For some reason, there is a chance that Greg
  will wind up taking all your gold when he scrounges through corpses. Be sure
  to have a save before hand so that you don't lose everything.

- Not so much a bug as a trick, merchants will equip the strongest weapon they
  have available to them. Thus, certain weapons will become unavailable after
  you look at a merchant's inventory. If you don't look, it won't be a problem.
  It's a good idea to save before looking at a merchant's inventory to see if
  the strongest weapon they have would interest you. If it does, buy it. If you
  don't have the money, re-load your save and acquire the money. 


===============================================================================
 [G.3]   Walkthrough
===============================================================================
Now, please note that a lot of these quests overlap, so there's going to be
some repeated information in here. The Walkthrough is going to be broken up
into three parts: Pre-Jharkendar, Jharkendar, and Post-Jharkendar. 

The Overview goes in a fairly chronological order, so you can look over it as
a guideline for your progress. To the left of things is a Code. Bring up the
"Find" window (Control+F) and copy and paste the code into it, and it will
bring you to that character/quest/appendix. There are times when a quest may
lead into another, in which case, noted by this symbol  "->". It will be 
followed by the code of the quest that it continues into.

C.1.A.1 - Xardas' Tower
-----------------------
We begin at Xardas' Tower in Khorinis. After he awakens you, he mentions a "new
threat". You can ask him about this and get another FMV explaining the back
story to the add-on content. You may remember in the original, the "Very Old 
Map" that Brahim could sell you, with markings in the North East around a 
series of pyramids and ancient constructions. This will play into the bonus
content. 

Be sure to loot his tower fully before continuing on. Sitting on the table 
next to him is an "Old Stone Tablet". You can pick it up, and upon an attempt
to read it, you'll discover it's written in another language. Asking Xardas 
about this stone will get you +50 EXP. He'll let you keep it. Once you're in
town, you can give these Old Stone Tablets to Vatras for rewards.

Head out the tower and go through the cave tunnel near the waterfall lake on
the left. Follow it down to the wooded area with Lester.


K.1.C.1 - Lester
----------------
The talk with Lester isn't any different from the original, except you can ask
him how to get into the city. Apparently he worked with or for Constantino
before he was cast into the Colony. He tells you that you can pose as an herb
vendor for Constantino. 


K.1.Q.01 - "Herbs for Constantino" 
---------------------------------
This is ultimately going to be your way into town (Follow every other step
possible to get in, but once you finally meet the guard, pose as the herb 
vendor). By obtaining 10 of any one type of herb, you can talk to the City
Guard and he'll grant you access to the town. This rewards you +100 EXP.

The herbs can be found virtually everywhere - around the Shrine of Innos, the
area around Lester, Xardas' Tower, the road to the city, etc. It shouldn't be
too hard for you to come by these. Once you're in, you can talk to Constantino
about selling him herbs for another +50 EXP. You can then return to Lester to
tell him that the herb trick worked like a charm for +250 EXP.


K.1.C.2 - Cavalorn 
------------------
Down the road in the underpass you'll meet Cavalorn fighting a few goblins. He
was not originally a part of Gothic 2, though served as a merchant and trainer
for the Old Camp in the original Gothic. He'll ask you where you're going; tell
him you're going back to the Valley of Mines, and he'll give you a quest to see
if his hut is still standing (K.1.Q.2).

Continue to talk to him and you'll find out he belongs to the Ring of Water,
a group of people who work for the water mages. He advises to talk to Vatras in
town for more information. He'll also tell you about his predicament with the
bandits.


K.1.Q.02 - "Cavalorn's Old Hut"
------------------------------
When Cavalorn asks where you are going, tell him you're headed back to the
Valley of Mines and he will task you with checking on his old hut. You won't
actually be there until chapter 2, of course, so there will be a lot of stuff
inbetween getting the quest and finishing it.

Once you're in the Valley of Mines, just west of the castle is a small hut.
Marcos has taken up refuse near there, and later, in Ch.4, Cipher and Rod are
sitting at a campfire near it. On the floor is a leather satchel labeled 
"Cavalorn's Leather Satchel". When you inspect it in your inventory screen, it
is said to have some lumps of ore in it.

Return this to Cavalorn, and he will offer to pay you 200 gold coins for it. 
You can ask him why he left it behind if he wanted it so badly now, and he 
tells you that he didn't know ore was worth so much in the city (since it had
such little value back in the colony). Give him his satchel for +300 EXP and
+200 gold.


K.1.Q.03 - "The 'Ring of Water'" 
-------------------------------
When you mention Cavalorn's armor, he tells you that he belongs to a group of
people who work in secret to support and protect the Water Mages with their
newest endeavor. He merely tells you that Vatras will be able to tell you
more. -> K.3.Q.01


K.1.Q.04 - "Cavalorn's Bandits"
------------------------------
Cavalorn was attacked and robbed by bandits, and needs some help in getting his
things back. When you ask him for equipment, he will give you a Wolf Knife and
2 small healing potions (the Wolf Knife is the best weapon you'll come by
at the beginning of the game, with 30dmg/10str/+3%1H). It's advised to wait
until you've talked to the Bandit and Maleth before going in to kill the rest
of the bandits, because more opportunities for exp are available.

Once you've talked to the Bandit (see K.1.C.3), you can tell him that there
will be trouble soon; Cavalorn is comming. This will get you +50 exp. Now go
back and tell Cavalorn that you're ready to "mix it with them". Follow him
up the stairs to the bandit hideout, and he will kill the two bandits up there.
You get exp for what he kills, so that's another +30 exp x2. Once the fight is
over, he will tell you to take the note off Brago and take it to Vatras.


K.1.T.01 - Learning from Cavalorn
--------------------------------
When you've completed "Cavalorn's Bandits" (K.1.Q.02), he will now train your
1H-combat skills and Bow-skills, as well as sneaking. 


K.1.C.3 - Bandit
----------------
He will pull you into conversation. When he asks where you're from, tell him
you've come from the mountains. Continue to ask questions (do not agree to go
with him or say "maybe later") and then admit that you were a convict in the
Colony. He'll suddenly have a change of attitude, and will befried you. You can
offer to pay him 10 gold to tell you who gave the order to kill you. He will 
tell you that Dexter, in a hideout near Onar's farm, issued it. HINT: if you
drop your gold on the ground, you can still get Dexter's name, without having
to pay. 

After you've talked to Cavalorn, you can warn him that Cavalorn is comming
for +50 exp.

After you've talked to Maleth, you can warn him that Lobart's farmers noticed
the missing sheep and want them all dead for another +50 exp.


K.1.Q.05 - "Wanted Notes and Bandits" 
--------------------------------------
There's not much you can do with this quest now, aside from getting Dexter's
name in order to get into the Bandit Camp. There are a few other opportunities
to get his name, but this one is the simplest and earliest option you have.
This quest doesn't seem to have any real content to it, as it doesn't complete
when you meet Dexter, doesn't add anything in Jharkendar, and self-completes
when you enter Ch.4. So, it'll just sit in your quest log idly after you've
gotten Dexter's name. Later you'll talk to Dexter (K.6.C.3) and you will get
some more information on the matter, though not much. -> K.6.Q.01


K.1.A.2 - Lobart's Farm
-----------------------
Here you can begin a series of short quests to obtain farmer's clothes; their
main purpose is to help you get into the city (or in the expansion, help Greg
get into the city). Once you've begun doing day-labor work for Lobart you can
ask his wife, Hilda, for stew once a day (20 HP/use). 


K.2.Q.01 - "The Bandits at Lobart's Farm"
----------------------------------------
Upon first encountering Maleth, if you mention that you were attacked by some
bandits in the mountains (even if you weren't) he'll mention that he wants to
see them all dead for causing the farm troubles. This quest goes hand-in-hand
with "Cavalorn's Bandits" (K.1.Q.2) in the fact that they both are having
troubles with the same group. When you pick up this quest, if you warn the
Bandit guarding the stairs about Maleth's ambitions, you can get +50 EXP. 

Once he's out of the way, you can tell Cavalorn you're ready to fight them.
You can return to the bandit and warn him that Cavalorn is comming for another
+50 EXP. There are two bandits up in the cave: Brago, the leader, and some
lackey. Once they're dead, you can return to Maleth for +100 EXP and 3 bottles
of wine (these can be used later in "For a Bottle of Wine" >K.2.Q.07<). In add-
ition, Lobart will sell you the farmer's clothes for 10 gold less (original
price of 80 gold). 


K.2.Q.02 - "How to Get Into the City of Khorinis"
------------------------------------------------
When mentioning to Maleth that you need a way into the city, this begins the
quest of getting in the city (it can also begin when you attempt to enter the
city and are stopped by the guards, or by talking with Canthar). There are a
few ways to do this: 1) Sneak in, 2) Use Lobart's farm clothes, 3) Pose as an
herb-vendor for Constantino, 4) Use Canthar's pass, 5) Bribe the guards for
100 gold. 

1) You can sneak in most easily by simply strafing past the Gate Guard. This
   will turn the camera towards the guard as if you were going into conversat-
   ion, but you will still be moving. Once you stop, he begins the chat and 
   you can hit "End" and continue through the city. If you talk to Lares, you
   can get a bonus +500 EXP; he thinks you swam into the city and comments on
   your ninja-work. You can also get some interesting responses from Lothar
   and other NPC's. You can then leave, and enter again using one of the below
   methods (prime way as the herb-gatherer for Constantino) for extra EXP.
2) If you wear the farmer clothes, you can get inside the city without any
   trouble from the guards. HOWEVER; it is wise to give the clothes to Greg
   to let him in (you get more gold and exp by doing this). He will pay 50 gold
   for the clothes you paid 30 gold for, and you can get an extra +50 EXP.
3) This is its own separate quest, K.1.Q.1 - "Herbs for Constantino"
4) Using Canthar's Pass (K.2.P.1) will not reward you any experience, but will
   get you in the city.
5) You can bribe the guards if you want to waste 100 gold. This is the least
   intelligent way in. 


K.2.Q.03 - "Lobart's Work Clothes"
---------------------------------
If you ask Lobart about needing some sensible clothes, he'll offer to sell you
some farmer's clothes. He will give you a better price on the togs if you work
for him as a day-laborer. You can drop the price significantly by doing some
tasks: harvesting the turnip field (K.2.Q.04), bringing the turnips to Hilda to
cook (K.2.Q.05), getting a pan for Hilda (K.2.Q.06), and getting some wine for
Vino (K.2.Q.07). 

If you've done all four tasks and killed the bandits on the way down from 
Xardas' tower (and told Maleth about it), Lobart will sell you the clothes for
a paltry 30 gold (as opposed to the original 80 value). 


K.2.Q.04 - "Harvest the Turnip Field" 
------------------------------------
In the field next to Lobart (to the side of the barn) are 25 turnips. Pick
them all up and return to Lobart for +50 EXP. He'll tell you to take them to
his wife, Hilda. -> K.2.Q.05


K.2.Q.05 - "Bring the Turnips to Hilda" 
--------------------------------------
Hilda is at the oven in the farm house behind Lobart. When you give her the
turnips, you'll be rewarded with another +50 EXP and another task. -> K.2.Q.06


K.2.Q.06 - "A Pan for Hilda" 
---------------------------
Hilda will ask you to get a pan from Canthar, the merchant outside the city.
Ask her for the gold, and run to Cantahr (sitting at the crossroads on the 
main path and the path up to Lobart, on a bench) and purchase the pan. He'll
strike up a deal with you (K.2.P.01) - go ahead and take it. Return to Hilda
with the pan for another +50 EXP. -> K.2.Q.07


K.2.P.01 - A Pass into the City 
------------------------------
Upon seeing your questionable appearance, Canthar will offer you a way into the
city - a pass that allows the bearer past the guards. He will give it to you
for free, but will ask a favor of you later, once you meet up inside the city.
Go ahead and take the pass, as it will provide an opportunity for more EXP and
gold once you're inside. The quest "Canthar's Favor" will become available to
you when you're inside. 


K.2.Q.07 - "For a Bottle of Wine"
--------------------------------
When you ask Vino if you could help him, and your ignorance of farming is 
revealed, he'll simply ask you for a bottle of wine. If you completed "The 
Bandits at Lobart's Farm" you'll already have 3 in your inventory. If not, you
can go back to Canthar and buy a bottle off of him. Return to Vino with the
wine for +50 EXP.


K.2.C.6 - Greg
--------------
On your way to the city gates, you'll run in to Greg, and unlikely pirate in
need of a way into the city. When he asks you if you're interested in gold, 
be sure to agree to it - don't pick "about those guards" until after you've
agreed to help him. -> K.2.Q.08.a


K.2.Q.08.a - "The Man with the Eyepatch"
---------------------------------------
The first of your quests with Greg involves helping him get into the city. If
you agree to help him, you can offer him several choices, but the only one he
will agree to is using the farmer's clothes you got from Lobart. If you don't
have them yet, he'll wait in his spot until you "come up with an idea" (ie you
getting the clothes to offer him). When you give Greg the farmer's clothes,
he'll give you 50 gold for them (a 20 gold profit if you did all the chores
and killed the bandits) and +100 EXP. You'll later run in to him at Orlan's
tavern, where he will have a second task for you. You can enter the city as
an herb-gatherer for Constantino, not needing the farmer clothes anymore. He
will show up later at the Dead Harpy Tavern with another task for you to help
him with. -> K.5.Q.01.b


K.1.A.3 - Khorinis City
-----------------------
The harbor city on an island southeast of the mainland of Myrtana; here is 
where you'll find a lot of information and will begin many of the new quests
added in the expansion. You'll likely spend up to a full hour in and around
Khorinis what with all of the quests that open up to you when you get in. For
the purposes of the expansion, your primary target should be Vatras, followed
by Lares.


K.3.C.1 - Vatras
----------------
He's the representative of the Water Magicians inside the city. He is the one
who will ultimately let you into the Ring of Water, so you'll have to do some
things to prove yourself worthy and trustable. He can teach you to increase
your mana, heal you (for free), and other nifty things. After you've finished
all your conversation topics (particularly the ones about the Ring and joining
it), Vatras will give you some ornament to take to Lares, who is suppsoed to
deliver it to the other Water Mages. 


K.3.P.01 - Cavalorn's Letter
---------------------------
When you mention you have a letter for him, you're rewarded with +200 EXP. He
will ask where you got it from, and if you say Cavalorn (not the bandits), you
get another +200 EXP. Vatras will mention something about the Ring of Water
and your potential involvement since Cavalorn deemed you worthy to be told of
it. Return to Cavalorn and tell him you delivered the letter for +50 EXP. 


K.3.Q.01 - "The 'Ring of Water'" 
-------------------------------
When you ask about joining the Ring of Water, Vatras says that you must first
prove your dedication to the Ring before you can join. On top of that, he 
wants you to bring your message to Lord Hagen about the Eye of Innos before
he can admit you. There's really not much to this quest, since there's a sepa-
rate quest for recieving Vatras' trust (see K.3.Q.02 - "Where Are the Missing
People?"). Once you're ready to join (having completed "Where Are the Missing
People?" and delivered your message to Lord Hagen about the dragons and the
Eye of Innos), you will be rewarded +400 EXP, a Ring of Water symbol ring with
your 'name' on it. Vatras will tell you to meet with the other members of the
Ring at Orlan's tavern.

Go to the Dead Harpy and talk to Orlan about the meeting for +100 EXP. He says
the rest are a bit late, but should be there soon. Lares, Martin, Gaan, Cord,
and Cavalorn will join Orland in the back area of the tavern. Talk to Lares for
+100 EXP and the Ring of Water Armor. He will explain some rules to you, and
check if you have any questions. If you ask about weapons, he will give you the
Ring of Waters' Quarterstaff. By now, you probably have something better, but 
it's a pretty nice 2H weapon. 

Lares will then send you to talk to Vatras to pick up your first assignment.
Return to Khorinis and tell Vatras and tell him you need a new assignment; you
are rewarded +100 EXP for this. Vatras will give you a letter to take to Satur-
as, ultimately the thing that will let you through the portal. Your task is to
find out what Raven's up to and to free the slaves. This starts the quest 
"Raven's Slaves" which will be done in Jharkendar. Return Lares' Ring for +100
EXP. 


K.3.Q.02 - "Where Are the Missing People?" 
-----------------------------------------
This is a relatively large quest that is done along-side "Wanted Notes and
Bandits" (K.1.Q.05). The first step involves asking people about the missing
people to try to figure out who is missing. The following is a list of people
to ask, and who/what they mention:

Lares: William
Garvell: Monty
Andre: No Comment
Bromor: Lucia & "Bromor's Golden Dish" (K.3.Q.12)
Thorben: Elvrich
Coragon: Ask Thorben, ask Hakon
Hakon: Joe +50 EXP *
Halvor: Ask Garvell
Akil: Tonak, Telbor +50 EXP
Bengar: Pardos +50 EXP
Cord: Patrick ** 
Farim: William, bay that William was last seen
Cassia: Pirate bay
Kardif: Ask Coragon, ask Halvor
Skip: Bandit hideout, leader's name (Dexter)
Elvrich: Lucia, Lucia's meeting point
Dexter: His leader - Raven

* While Joe may be missing, he is not one of those kidnapped by the bandits.
  He is a member of the Thieves' Guild who got trapped in a Guard Tower. 
** You must first pick up a task before Cord will tell you this. -> K.6.P.02

For completing this quest, the first most important person you'll have to talk
to is Skip. To get to him, jump out into the water from the haror and swim 
north until you find the bay shore. Once you find him, you can talk to him and
ask him about what he's been up to. He'll mention dealings with bandits in 
which they were paid to ferry people to a region in the northeast (the missing
people). You can ask where the bandits are now, and he will draw on your map
if you have one, or just tell you. In drawing on the map, he remembers the
leader's name (if you didn't get it from the Bandit on the way to the city),
Dexter.

Next up is liberating one of the missing people. In doing "The Bandits' Weapon
Dealer" you follow a trail of Bandit Rapiers to the small, enclosed field SE of
Bengar's farm. There lies a bandit camp with a few bandits, and one Elvrich
sitting in the tent. Once you've killed the bandits (you can go behind the tent
for a better chance at taking them one-on-one), talk to Elvrich. 

He will tell you that he was on his way to a rendezvous point with his girl,
Lucia, when he was attacked by bandits and hauled away. He tells you that he
could over-hear the bandits talking about making him and others into slaves in
some remote area. He was taken to a mooring harbor a short distance from the
harbor of Khorinis (where Skip is now). He will tell you that there are more
of them in the woods behind Sekob's farm, and hopes that Lucia will be ok
(see K.3.Q.14).

Once you've gotten all the information you need from him, tell him to go back
to town. You can later talk to him in-town, and Thorben will reward you with
200g.

Go to the bandit camp behind Sekob's farm; there will be some bandits here. 
Deal with them, and read 'Lucia's Farewell Letter'.

Before going to the final destination, tell Vatras what all you've found; +50
EXP for telling him that the farmers are missing people too; +50 EXP for tell-
ing him that the bandits are involved; +50 EXP for telling him that Dexter is
the leader of the bandits; +50 EXP for telling him that the pirates were work-
ing with the bandits, but are now in conflict with them; +50 EXP for telling
him you've rescued Elvrich; +50 EXP for telling him Lucia was taken by the
bandits; +50 EXP for telling him Lucia has decided to go with the bandits; +50
EXP for telling him about the pirates' mooring bay where they were taking the
missing people to be slaves. All-in-all, that comes to +400 EXP for telling
him what you've found out so far.

The final step: Go to the bandit hideout south of Onar's Farm. When you arrive,
follow the path up the mountain. When the guard stops you, give him Dexter's
name. He will let you pass without any troubles. Continue past the bandits to
Dexter's house and talk to him. Ask him all the questions you can about the
missing people, and you find out that he's working for Raven, a former Ore
Baron of the Penal Colony, who needs workers for his project in the north east.

In the end, the only way to get the final proof from Dexter is, as he says, to
beat it out of him. There are a few ways to do this, all with the same result,
just a different way to get there. The first is you attack Dexter and kill him.
The second: you leave Dexter and attack the bandits. In both events, once you
start fighting, Greg will show up and start slaughtering the bandits. However,
if Dexter isn't already dead, Greg will go kill him himself. If Dexter didn't
come out to attack you for attacking his bandits, he will scamper up the tower.
Greg will go in the house and ask you where he went, and you can reply "Well,
he *was* here a minute ago," and then go up the tower and kill him. Or, if 
Dexter stayed around, Greg will kill him. 

BUG WARNING: When Greg tries to loot a bandit's body, it's possible that he may
	     wind up taking all of your gold. Save before you do the fight, so
	     that you can re-load if this happens.

Investigate Dexter's body and take the note from him. Read it, and you will
get the hard proof of what Raven's planning. You can now take this information
back to Vatras for +400 EXP and his allowance for you to join the Ring of Water


K.3.Q.03 - "The Stone Tablets" 
-----------------------------
When you ask Vatras about the Old Stone Tablet, he tells you that they have
written histories about an ancient culture that the Water Mages are doing
research on. He will offer to reward you for each one you bring back.

The reward appears to be: If you bring him under 10 Tablets, you get a variable
number of mana/health potions. If it's more than 10 Tablets, you get a perma
increase to your maximum mana equal to the number of Tablets you gave him. 


K.3.Q.04 - "The Bandits' Weapon Dealer" 
--------------------------------------
If you continue to ask Vatras about the Ring of Water after you've obtained
the quest "Where Are the Missing People?", upon asking what some of the Ring's
tasks are, Vatras will mention their current dilemma with a fence in town who
is dealing in weapons with/for the bandits. He doesn't have much information
for you, but directs you to Martin for more information.

When you ask if there's anything that can help you on your search, Vatras will
give you an ore amulet with a summonable will-o-the-wisp. This wisp can be
told to search for close-combat weapons (ideally the bandits' swords, as you
find a trail of Bandit Rapiers) and guide you to them. Vatras says that you
can talk to Riordian with the other Water Mages about training it to find
other things. 

When you talk to Martin (the provisions master with the knights at the harbor)
he will tell you that the bandits have been blockading roads connecting the
farmers. He also advises that you should be able to fight at least five bandits
if you're to be able to survive. Now, you can do the quest without doing this
first part (it's totally skip-able) since it's pretty hard, but it can be done.
I will continue to guide through the way it was *intended* to be completed.

The first step to finding the proof you'll need to expose the dealer, we must
first deal with the bandits that are blockading the roads. These bandits are
located at the over-passing bridge by Akil's farm (you'll pass under it on the
way to the Tavern). If you talk to Erol underneath it, he mentions being
attacked by the bandits and having seen them carrying overloading piles of
weapons (in other words, they couldn't carry them all and wound up dropping
some). 

These bandits are particularly difficult to deal with since there are so many,
and by the time you first meet them, you're probably only level 3 or 4 (unless
you've gone out of your way to do other things). There are 5 melee bandits and
one with a bow. The easiest way to kill these guys (without having spent 15 
hours beefing yourself up and getting into Ch.2) is to have Lares go with you
to take the ornament to the water mages. At his first stopping point, leave him
be and go lure as many bandits as you can back to him. 

You might need to sleep until midnight if you don't want Ehnim and Egill to
mess with the bandits as you pull them by. The bandits get caught on terrain
really easily, so be sure to make wide turns around corners and such. The one
with the bow will be a bit tricky to kill, since instead of chasing you he will
shoot at you. He is easy to kill once he's alone:

Run towards him in a lengthy zig-zag pattern to avoid getting hit by the bow.
Once you're close enough, he'll draw his sword to attack. Now, let him give the
first strike: block it. Quickly, attack forward, then immediately block again.
Establish this pattern of attack, block, attack, block, attack, block, and you
should have him dead eventually, without any troubles. 

You should find 3 Old Stone Tablets on them that you can give to Erol to compl-
ete "Merchant Raids" (K.4.Q.01). You should also note that some of the bandits
were wielding "Bandits' Rapier", essentially a dexterity-based sword without
the +5% bonus. There are also two of these Bandit Rapiers lying on the ground
near the campfire. 

From here, summon your searching Will-o-the-Wisp and tell it to find you
close-quarters weapons. From now on, as you run it will seek out weapons. When
it finds one, it will make the weapon flash a few times along with a little
chime. Admittedly, it's sometimes hard to notice when it finds something,
because it will be behind you and suddenly decide to branch off the path to 
a weapon (you won't see it because it's behind you), or since you're already
ahead of it, when it spots a weapon ahead of you, you'll likely pass it before
the wisp gets there. So be sure to walk about 30 feet and take a break to make
sure the wisp hasn't found anything.

From here, you should find a slight trail of these Bandit Rapiers leading in
the direction towards Bengar's farm. You can talk to Bengar and ask if he saw
any bandits come through for +50 EXP, and he will tell you that there indeed
were some comming by. You can ask the Pass guard, but he won't have much to say
about it. Follow the trail to the stone stairs south of Bengar's house into the
enclosed field. On the right, you will see a small bandit camp. There are a few
bandits here, along with one of the missing people: Elvrich. 

To fight the bandits, it's advisable to run close enough to get their attention
then run back behind the tree and fight them one-on-one. You could also run 
behind the tent, as they will (most of the time) run after you into the tent
and get stuck in there, so that you can deal with them one at a time. Once they
are all dead, check the bandits' bodies. One of them should have an odd ring,
"Overseas-trader Guild Araxos" on him. This is part #1 of the proof we need.

Talk to Elvrich, sitting in the tent, and ask him what happened. He will tell
you about his date with Lucia being interrupted by bandits. This will activate
the new quest "Lucia" (K.3.Q.14). Ask Elvrich all topics about the bandits for
more information in "Where Are the Missing People?" and if he saw any weapons
with the bandits. He will indicate that the next series of information can be
found in the woods behind Sekob's farm. Tell him to go back to town before you
leave.

You can re-summon the wisp and follow the weapon trail as it leads its way to
Sekob's farm. Ask Balthasar if he saw any strange bandit activity for +50 EXP,
and he will tell you he saw a bunch around the woods behind the farm. Continue
following the weapon trail to the NW corner, where the bandits are camped. 

Lure the bandits the same way you did at Elvrich's camp, using the tent as 
shelter to take them one-on-one. Once they're all dead, collect all the goods,
the most important being a sealed note on the floor between two chests, titled
"Delivery". Read it, and we find a signed issue from Fernando. You can also
find a Farewell letter from Lucia in the tent.

Return to town and confront Fernando about this. He will admit that he was in
fact involved with the bandits for +100 EXP. You can take a bribe from him of
200g and a Wooden Skin ring (+3 arrow protection) with +100 EXP, or turn him
over to the militia. Turn him in; the bribe is practically worthless. Go talk
to Martin and tell him the four proofs: the guild ring, the F-engraved rapiers,
the signed letter, and Fernando's confession. You will get +200 EXP for this.
Go tell Vatras about it for another +200 EXP. 



K.3.Q.05.a - "Relief for Vatras" 
-------------------------------
Once you've delivered the letter to Saturas, return to Vatras. He'll say that
he's getting tired and could use some relief. You won't be able to do anything
about this until after you've completed all the quests in Jharkendar first.

There's actually no work that needs to be done further in this quest: just go
about the rest of the game as normal and it will resolve itself. More info in
(J.1.Q.08.b).


K.3.T.01 - Learning from Vatras
------------------------------
Vatras can train your maximum Mana. 


K.3.C.2 - Lares
---------------
Lares now plays a much larger role in the game, as he is one of the important
members of the Ring who will help you out. 


K.3.Q.05 - "The Water Mages" 
---------------------------
When you bring Lares the ornament from Vatras (given to you when you choose
to 'End' the conversation after picking up the quest "Where Are the Missing
People?"), he will grumble about having to go half-way across the island to
get it to the magicians. You can offer to take it, but he will resolve to take
it himself, though offering you to accompany him. However, he is supposed to
be keeping watch on the harbor in case more people disappear, so before he can
leave, you need to find someone to take his place while he's out. -> K.3.Q.06,
"Relief for Lares"

Once you've gotten Lares' relief, he will guide you to the Water Mages. On the
way he will stop and tell you about what they're up to; that they're exploring
an excavation site of an ancient culture. At certain points, he stops and waits
for you to tell him to move on. When he does this, you can run off the trail
and pull extra mobs for him to kill (since you get the exp for the stuff that
he kills). Be careful when he's not waiting on you; if you go too far off the
trail or fall behind he'll disappear and wind up back in town where you'll 
have to re-do your run.

At his first stopping point, go off the path to the left and run back a little
ways into a small cave. There is an Orc Warrior in here - pull it back to 
Lares and have him kill it. This will make "The Teleporter Stones (K.6.Q.02)
easier and safer. You may also want to pull the bandits on the over-passing
bridge down to him for him to kill, since you'll be needing to confront these
guys for "The Bandits' Weapon Dealer" (K.3.Q.04) & "Merchant Raids" (K.4.Q.01)

At his second stopping point you can pull some lurkers and wolves from the
path on the way to Onar's Farm to him.

At his third stopping point, you can go into the woods behind Sekob's farm
(to the right, down a small hill) and pull wolves, field raiders, and wargs
back up to him for exp.

At his fourth stopping point, you can *try* to pull the Shadowbeasts in the
cave under the rope bridge (follow the river around the side of the cliff 
face), however these are very tricky as they get stuck on the cave exit easily
and run *very* fast. You might not be able to actually get them to him

At his fifth stopping point, there's nothing in the vicinity to pull to him.

At his sixth stopping point, you can pull some scavengers up the path a ways
back to him. 

When you finally get to the northeastern excavation site, Lares will wait for
you at the entrance to the large pit. If you get near enough to target him he
will automatically bring you into conversation and give you the ornament to
take to Saturas. If you want to pull the lizards, fire lizards, shadowbeast,
and goblins to him, be sure to pull them past him, rather than to him, so that
you're not engaged in conversation. Once he's done talking to you, he goes 
back to the city. You can also pull the goblin skeletons inside the Portal
lobby up to him. 

Once you've joined the Ring of Water, your first task, which will finally 
complete this quest, is to deliver a note to Saturas, saying that you are to
accompany them through the portal to stop Raven and free the slaves. This 
rewards you with +100 EXP. 


K.3.Q.06 - "Relief for Lares"
----------------------------
Lares will give you his Aquamarine Ring, the symbol of the Ring of Water. He
tells you to check the merchants in the Trading District near the NE gate. One
of them should be able to provide him some relief. To do this, simply wear the
ring and talk to Baltram. Before you're able to choose any conversation topics
he will mention you bearing their sign. You then tell him about Lares' predica-
ment and he will tell you he will have it dealt with. Return to Lares and tell
him this, and he will take you to the Water Mages.


K.3.P.02 - Help from Lares
-------------------------
Upon asking him for help, you can ask him about money, weapons, and armor. He
can't do much for you about weapons aside from suggesting buying something from
one of the merchants. If you ask about armor, he tells you a way to get the 
leather armor that Matteo is selling for free. This involves getting a sleep
scroll and casting it on the guard next to Matteo's store (the one who stops
you from entering the storage vault, similar to the gate guards). This can 
also be done similarly to how you snuck into the town by strafing past him,
and choosing to 'End' the conversation. The armor is in a chest along with
some citizens' clothes that can be used for a quest later on in Jharkendar.
When you ask him about money, he will tell you that Lehmar the money-lender
owes him a favor and that you can ask him for money. Don't pick this option
first if you want to hear the others, for some reason when you ask about money
the other options disappear. After he tells you this, you can borrow 200g from
Lehmar without having to return it. 

Along with his help are new, simpler ways into the three guilds, the Militia,
the Fire Magicians, and the Mercenaries. You can only pick one - once you
choose it, you can't select another one. This doesn't limit you to joining the
guild you asked for help in joining; you can still join the old-fashioned way.
However, you won't be able to use the newer quest(s) to join the others. See
below for descriptions of the quests.

WARNING: if you ask him about how to get to Onar's farm, DO NOT, I repeat,
^ DO NOT ^ agree to go with him to Onar's. If you do this, you will lose the
option to go with him to deliver the ornament to the Water Mages. The problem
here is that ornament is part of the key to unlocking the portal. So, if he
doesn't deliver it, you can't go to Jharkendar. I've been told that in Ch.3
the option to go with him to the Water Mages becomes available again, but 
better safe than sorry (not to mention you'll want to get into Jharkendar as
early as possible). 


K.3.Q.07 - "The Simple Way Into the Militia"
-------------------------------------------
If you tell Lares you're interested in the Militia, he sends you to Martin. 
Apparently most nights when Martin goes to Kardif's pub to take a break, some
person steals things from the paladins' storage. Since he can't stay there all
day and night, he offers to give you a reccomendation for Andre if you stand
and watch the crates that night. 

Go find a bed somewhere and sleep until midnight, and return to the Provisions
area. You will find Rangar, the drunken militia-man rummaging through some of
the crates. When you catch him, you're rewarded +300 EXP and he begins to get
nervous. Once you end the conversation he'll scamper back to his spot near
the free beer. Go talk to Martin at Kardif's for another +100 EXP and the 
letter of reccomendation to deliver to Andre. When you bring this letter to
Andre (after asking him to join the City Guard) he will agree to let you in,
saying that Martin's word is valuable. You can finalize your admission to the
Militia now for +400 EXP and the Light Militia Armor. 


K.3.Q.08 - "The Simple Way Into the Monastary"
---------------------------------------------
If you tell Lares you're interested in joining the Fire Magicians, he sends
you back to Vatras, since he himself is only involved with magicians on the
surface-level. When you tell Vatras that Lares sent you to him about joining
the Fire Magicians, he points you to Daron, the Fire Mage at the merchants'
square. Apparently he lost a valuable statuette of Innos and would likely be 
able to get you into the Monastary without the 2000 gold and sheep tribute. 
Before you leave, he tells you that even though you're joining the Circle of
Fire by joining the Monastary, you will still be able to join the Circle of
Water later on (in Jharkendar).

Talk to Daron about wanting to join the Monastary, and then mention his mishap
with the statuette. He will suddenly get irritated about the subject and will
tell you that the statuette was a delivery to the Monastary. He picked it up
at the harbor, but on the way to the Monastary, he was robbed by a group of
goblins. All he knows about their location is that it was around Orlan's tavern
and that they're probably holing up in a cave somewhere near there. If you can
get it back for him, he will be able to let you in without the expensive tribu-
te. 

The cave that the goblins are in, is the very same one we will be visiting for
part 2 of "The Man With the Eyepatch" (K.5.Q.01.b). First go the the Dead Harpy
and begin to follow the road that leads to Onar's farm. On the left, you should
see a cave (there are wolves in front of it). If you wind up passing the lake
on your right, you've gone too far. The easy way to find it, if you don't know
where to go is to have Greg take you there for his quest. He's sitting on a 
bench outside the Tavern if you talked to him back at Lobart's. 

Once you're there, you will have to fight 3 rooms of goblins and black goblins.
It's not incredibly difficult, so long as you're careful not to pull more than
one group at a time. If they're too difficult for you, you can lure them out
to Greg (if you're doing this quest at the same time) and he can kill them. On
one of the goblin's body, you will find a 'Valuable Statue of Innos'. Bring it
back to Daron at Khorinis City, and he will send you to deliver it to the Mona-
stary, since it's brought him nothing but bad luck. 

Go to the Monastary and ask Pedro about joining as a novice. Then, tell him you
have brought the 'Valuable Statue of Innos', and he will direct you in to see
Gorax, giving you the key to the front door and +250 EXP, along with your new
Novice Armor (only slightly better than your leather armor). Bring the Statue
to Gorax in the brewing-room on the right, and you will be rewarded another
+300 EXP, and your "tribute" is now taken care of.  

An interesting bit: when you tell Pyrokar that you need to see Lord Hagen, he
mentions something about the earthquakes in the northeast as being another
troubling event, but that it is none of the Fire Magicians' business, since 
the Circle of Water is already there investigating. 


K.3.Q.09 - "The Simple Way Into the Mercenaries" 
-----------------------------------------------
If you tell Lares you're interested in the Mercenaries, he sends you to Cord
and Onar's farm. Along with helping you get into the Mercenaries, Cord will
also teach you combat skills without having any previous knowledge in them (he
normally requires you to be at least 30% in 1H and/or 2H to train with him).
When you take up Torlof's test (either Bengar's militia troubles or collecting
the rent from Sekob) Cord will tell you that he will take care of this if you
go to the bandit camp south of Onar's and see if you can find anything about
his buddy Patrick who's gone missing.

This sort of ties in with "Wanted Notes and Bandits" and "Where Are the Missing
People?", but can be done separately. Cord will tell you the leader's name 
(Dexter), so that you can safely get in. When you go up to the bandit camp 
(up the inclined ramp on the way to Grom and the trolls (Skip can show you
where it is if you've talked to him and let him draw on your map)) and give 
the Gate Guard Dexter's name, go to the house with the lighthouse-esque tower
towards the back end of the camp. Dexter will mention his order to have you
killed and having not expected to see you show up there. 

Ask him what he knows about the mercenary Patrick for +100 EXP, and Dexter will
lie about having no idea where he is now (though he does say that Patrick was
indeed hanging around with bandits). Return to Cord and tell him this news for
+300 EXP. He will have completed Torlof's Test for you, so you can talk to
Torlof about joining (provided you've convinced at least a few mercenaries to
vote for you). You'll get +400 EXP and the Light Mercenary Armor when you
finally talk to Lee and are admitted into the ranks.

NOTE: this quest can be 'done' without having Lares offer it to you. See 
      'Cord's Friend Patrick' (K.6.P.02)


K.3.Q.10.a - "The Missing People" 
---------------------------------
When you ask Lares about the missing people, you activate "The Missing People"

This quest is eventually solved in Jharkendar, but for now just serves as a
tally for who all is missing. We'll re-visit this later in Jharkendar (a bit
at least). See J.1.Q.06.b 

People who are missing:

Elvrich
Lucia
Monty
Pardos
Tonak
Telbor
Patrick
William


K.3.T.2 - Learning from Lares
-----------------------------
Lares will train your Strength and Dexterity. 


K.3.C.3 - Martin
----------------
Martin is new to the expansion. He is the Provisions Master of the Paladins,
though he himself is a high-ranking militia-man. He can sell you some pretty
good weaponry early on in the game, and can play a role in helping you get in
with the militia (a new way in, added in the expansion). He is a member of the
Ring. 


K.3.P.3 - Martin's Stock
------------------------
Things that Martin can sell you: Master Sword, Rune Sword, Giant Machete, 
Machete, Longsword, Fine Longsword, Fine Short Sword, Militia Short Sword, 
Ring of Magic, Holy Arrow spell scroll, Holy Light spell scroll, Medium Healing
spell scroll, and Molerat fat. The Master Sword seems to be particularly rare,
as it was originally found in Xardas' Old Tower in the Valley of Mines (the
'Ancient Demon Tower' port), but in the add-on, it was not there. Martin seems
to be the only way to acquire this weapon. 


K.3.C.4 - Farim
---------------
He is a new character added to the expansion. Farim is a fisher located right
before the underpass to the paladins' ship on a small beach shore. He plays a
part in the Missing People quest, as his buddy William has gone missing. You
can also get a new quest out of him if you ask about his struggle with the
militia (see below, K.3.Q.11). 


K.3.Q.11 - "Trouble With the Militia"
-------------------------------------
This is a really simple quest. Farim will mention the militia taking away all
his fish to feed citizens and such. If you offer to help (as opposed to demand-
ing his fish) you will get the quest. Simply go up to Martin and mention the
problem Farim is having (talk to him about all the options if you can't talk
about Farim right away - the option will arise after you ask what he's doing
there). Martin will tell you to let Farim know that he will take care of his
problem and you'll get +50 EXP. Return to Farim for +100 EXP and an Aquamarine
stone. 


K.3.Q.12 - "Bromor's Golden Dish"
---------------------------------
Bromor's missing prostitue, Lucia, ran off with a precious Golden Dish of his.
You can offer to get it back for him and begin the quest. This quest goes along
with "The Bandits' Weapon Dealer" (K.3.Q.04), so you'll stumble upon this item
eventually by doing that quest. By talking to Elvrich at the enclosed field
SE of Bengar's farm, you find out that the bandits likely took the dish from
Lucia, and that they're holed up in the woods behind Sekob's farm. 

Go to Sekob's house and head NW of there, following the edge of the cliff wall
until you come upon the bandit camp in the NW corner. One of the bandits has
Bromor's Golden Dish on him. Kill them all and acquire the dish off their dead
bodies. Return it to Bromor for +200 EXP and one free night of fun with Nadja.
He doesn't care that Lucia is still missing, since business is going just fine
even without her. 


K.3.C.6 - Skip
--------------
To get to skip, jump into the water from the harbor and swim to the right. You
will soon come to a small bay with a ship, some looted boxes, and a small camp
inhabited by a certain 'Skip'. When you talk to him, he reveals that he is a
wanted pirate. He mentions something about Baltram being late (K.3.Q.13). He
can give you some valuable information about Dexter and the missing people.

He tells you that the pirates have been doing business with the bandits, and
part of that business involved ferrying people to some uncharted region, but
he refuses to tell you any more than that. If you ask where the bandits are,
he will tell you, or, if you have a map, mark on it. He can also tell you the
leader's name so that you can safely get in to talk to him: Dexter. 


K.3.Q.13 - "Pirate Trade"
-------------------------
When you inquire what Skip wanted with Baltram, he reveals that Baltram owes
Skip a shipment in exchange for some seaman's grog. If you go to Baltram and
ask him about this, you can offer to help with the deal. Baltram will give you
his package to deliver to Skip. Go back to Skip and give him the package for
+100 EXP. He will give you 2 bottles of grog, instead of the 3 that Baltram
asked for. Take the bottles to Baltram and let him know the news. He will be
irked at only getting 2, but knows better than to mess with pirates. This will
get you another +50 EXP and +10 gold for your efforts. 


K.3.C.7 - Elvrich
-----------------
Elvrich will return to work with Thorben once you've liberated him from his
bandit capture in the field SE of Bengar's farm. You can get +200 gold from 
Thorben when you tell him you've brought Elvrich back.


K.3.Q.14 - "Lucia"
------------------
You technically get this quest back when you talk to Elvrich at the bandit
camp, but this is where you do the actual "work". When you ask Elvrich about
Lucia (when he's at the bandit camp) he tells you she was hauled off to the
woods behind Sekob's farm. He hopes that she is ok.

When you investigate the woods behind Sekob's farm, you discover the bandits'
camp with 'Lucia's Farewell Letter'. Bring this back to Elvrich for +100 EXP.
He will refuse to believe that she won't come back to him, wanting to believe
that she will return. He gives you the letter back. This does not complete the
quest, however, as we will re-visit it in Jharkendar.


K.1.A.4 - Akil's Farm and Cross Roads
-------------------------------------
There isn't much new added here besides the horde of bandits on the bridge,
and Erol, the attacked merchant.


K.4.C.1 - Erol
--------------
You find Erol sitting on a bench just past the wrecked wagon underneath the
bridge leading from Akil's farm to the Tavern. When you talk to him, you can
ask what happened to him, and he'll explain that he was attacked by bandits on
the bridge, activating the "Merchant Raids" (K.4.Q.01) quest. He mentions that
he survived only because he knew how to throw out a good punch. You can ask 
him about the bandits, and if they were carrying any weapons, and he will tell
you they had so many they couldn't quite carry them all.


K.4.Q.01 - "Merchant Raids"
--------------------------
Erol lost 3 irreplacable 'Old Stone Tablets' to the bandits that attacked his
wagon. You can offer to help and get the quest. Now, you can either just give
him 3 tablets that you've found elsewhere, or, kill the bandits on the bridge
and take the 3 tablets off their corpses. You'll likely have a difficult time
fighting these, since there're six of them. The easiest way to kill them is
to lure them to Lares when he stops to tell you about the Ring of Water
in the quest "The Water Mages" (K.3.Q.05). You might have to go into Akil's
house and sleep until midnight to do this most effectively, since Ehnim and/or
Egill is likely to attack them and get killed.

The bandits get stuck on certain landscape formations easily, so take a wide
berth around turns and corners. There are 5 bandits using swords, and one who
will shoot at you with a bow; the 5 melee are easy to pull to Lares, but the
sixth with the bow is more difficult, since he'll prefer to stand still and 
shoot at you instead of chase after you. He is easy to kill once the rest are
out of the way (I did it with the Wolf Knife and 10% 1H). Run in a zig-zag
pattern to avoid getting hit by the arrows. Once you're close enough, he'll
draw his sword. Now, establish a pattern of block, attack, block, attack, and
you should kill him (steadily) without getting killed. Let him give the first
attack. Block it, and immediately after, hit him once, then go straight into
another block. He'll go down easily.

Take the stone tablets off the dead bodies (there are 3 in total, spread across
one or two bandits) and return them to Erol for +150 EXP and +30 gold.


K.4.T.01 - Learning from Erol: A Harder Hit
------------------------------------
When you've completed "Merchant Raids"(K.4.Q.01), Erol will train your strength
and will even give you a free +1 STR when you ask him about it. 


K.4.P.01 - Erol's Stock
----------------------
If you follow Erol, he will wind up at the small hut by the lake where Buster
hangs out. By asking him about the hut, you're rewarded +50 EXP. His inventory
contains a few nice things, such as a Life Elixer potion (+20 max HP), a STR
amulet (+10 STR).


K.1.A.5 - Dead Harpy Tavern
---------------------------
The Tavern serves as the meeting point / headquarters for the Ring of Water.
There's not much of a change in this region, besides the new conversation(s)
with Orlan and Greg. 


K.5.P.01 - A Free Bed for the Ring
---------------------------------
If you talk to Orlan while wearing a Ring of Water symbolization ring, you can
ask him if he's staring at your ring. He'll say that he doesn't know what to 
make of it. Respond that it's an aquamarine (don't mention the Ring, that'd
be breaking rule #1) for +50 EXP. When you later ask about renting a bed, he
won't charge you, being a brother of the ring, and will give you the key to the
upstairs rooms.


K.5.C.2 - Greg
--------------
If you talked to Greg when he was at Lobart's farm outside the city gates, he
will now be sitting on a bench outside the Dead Harpy, still wearing the farmer
garb you gave him earlier. You can strike up a conversation with him to provide
some more help/suggestions for him. There's nothing much accomplished, besides
him saying your suggestion is stupid or good, until you offer him 10 coins.
This leads into part 2 of "The Man With the Eyepatch" (K.5.Q.01.b).


K.5.Q.01.b - "The Man With the Eyepatch"
---------------------------------------
Greg, in true pirate nature, buried some of his belongings the last time he
was in Khorinis, and could use your help to re-collect them. Whenever you're
ready, tell him to go to the cave. Follow him there, just down the road a bit
towards Onar's farm. When you get to the entrance, he'll hand you a pick-axe
and send you in to get the stuff. "X marks the spot" he says. He'll stay back
and guard the entrance.

The X is in the room at the end of the left-most hall from the first room. But,
there are some goblins in the way. An assortment of regular and black goblins
will attack when you enter the cave. If they're too much for you, you can lure
them out to Greg for him to kill, though you won't get the exp for it. Go to
the large red X on the floor in the back room and use the action button on it.
You will dig-up a leather satchel.

Return to Greg, now dressed in his Pirate garb, and tell him you found the 
satchel with 100 gold coins for +100 EXP. He will now send you to find his
other four stashes, and will be waiting at the crossroads between Onar's farm
and Sekob's farm. 

1) The nearest one is on the small islet in the middle of the lake, just across
   the path from the cave you just dug from. There is a lurker out there, so 
   kill it and dig up the loot for +50 EXP.
2) The next is in the enclosed field SE of Bengar's farm (follow the path to
   Onar's farm from the last X, but turn off the road to the right when you
   get to the open farm field with the Field Raiders and Lurkers, and follow
   it through, heading south). The spot is just north of the bandits, but you
   can dig it up without drawing their attention. Just be sure to not get too
   close. +50 EXP.
3) Head up the stairs at the southern end of the field, and head towards Bengar
   and his house. Behind the barn is the third X. +50 EXP.
4) Follow the trail from Bengar's house until you see a pair of waterfalls on
   the left (it's right next to the Pass to the Valley of Mines). There are 2
   lurkers on this spot - separate them and kill them, then dig up the final
   stash for another +50 EXP.

By now, you should have: an amulet, 100 gold coins, a silver dish, and a gold
chalice. Return to Greg at the crossroads between Sekob and Onar's farms, and
give him his things for +300 EXP, and your measley share of the loot, 30g. 
When you ask him what happens next, he'll tell you that he's still looking for
'the guy with the red armor, name starting with a D'. Suggest Dexter, and he'll
say that he's not sure if that's the guy's name or not. If you've talked to
Skip or Cord and have Dexter's location, tell Greg for another +50 EXP. 


K.1.A.6 - Onar's Farm, the Pass of Khorinis, the Bandit Camp
------------------------------------------------------------
There's not a whole lot new going on here, but there are some important things
that need to be documented, so the entire eastern region has been sort of 
lumped into one category.


K.6.C.1 - Lee
-------------
By talking to Lee in the main building at Onar's Farm, you get the option of
asking him what he knows about the Ring of Water. -> K.6.P.01


K.6.P.01 - Circle of Water?
--------------------------
Lee will tell you that he doesn't really have a lot of time for all that, even
though he worked for the Water Mages back in the Colony. He relies on Lares for
most of that work. He helps from time to time, but has bigger things to worry
about. He will point you to Cord, a member of the Ring who can help you out
more than Lee can.


K.6.C.2 - Cord
--------------
Cord, to the side of Onar's house, will ask you who told you about the Ring of
Water. If you were told by Lares in "The Simple Way into the Mercenaries", you
will tell him this, and he will ask what you want of him. You can ask some 
favors of him. If you heard from Lee, you still get to ask some favors of him,
though not as many. The most important one, is his missing friend Patrick.
-> K.6.P.02


K.6.T.01 - Learning from Cord
----------------------------
When Cord is revealed to be a member of the Ring of Water, he can train your
1H and 2H sword skills without having to be at the minimum 30% like he normally
does. 


K.6.P.02 - Cord's Friend Patrick
-------------------------------
This is esentially the same thing as "The Simple Way into the Mercenaries",
only you didn't hear about it from Lares. This time, you heard about it from 
Lee, so you can still have the opportunity to use the new quests to join a
different guild, yet still find out about another Missing Person and get some
easy exp. In order to do this quest, you have to be guildless and express
interest in joining the Mercenaries (though you don't actually have to in the
end).

Tell Cord that you want his help joining the Mercenaries, and he will agree to
help you pass Torlof's Test if you help him. Pick up Torlof's quest (either
collecting the rent from Sekob or driving the Militia from Bengar's farm (the
latter provides more opportunity for exp if you don't want to join the Mercs.
If you are joining the Mercs, it won't matter, you'll later recieve the opposi-
te quest)). Return to Cord and he will tell you about his predicament.

His friend Patrick has gone missing, and was often seen mingling with the
bandits. Cord sends you to the camp to see if Patrick is anywhere to be found.
He gives you the leader's name in order to get in: Dexter.

Go to the camp, give Dexter's name, and ask Dexter about Patrick for +100 EXP.
He will lie that he doesn't know where he is now. Return to Cord with this 
news for +300 EXP. 

NOTE: Before completing Cord's task, you can go and do the quest you picked
      up from Torlof (though don't finalize it until after you've talked to
      Dexter), then complete Cord's quest for extra EXP. You can then do one of
      the other "Easy Way" quests if you want to join the Fire Magicians or the
      Militia. If you want to join the Mercenaries, might as well just take
      the "Easy Way" quest for the Mercs. Though, if you really want extra EXP
      you can do the "Easy Way" quest for the Militia, take the Note to Andre,
      but don't actually join the Militia, and then do Cord's task and join
      the Mercs.


K.6.C.3 - Dexter
----------------
Dexter, the leader of the bandits, is running the operations to kidnap citizens
from Khorinis and ship them off the the northeast to serve as slaves for the
former Ore Baron Raven. He plays a crucial role in "Where Are the Missing 
People?", which in itself is the main way into Jharkendar. 


K.6.Q.01.b - "Wanted Notes and Bandits"
------------------------------------
Dexter will tell you that he was ordered by Raven to have you killed, hence the
wanted posters. Raven knows how much of a trouble-maker you can be, so he's
decided to try to make sure you don't get involved right off the bat. There
really isn't much content to this quest, since it doesn't complete when you
talk to Dexter, doesn't seem to progress any when you're in Jharkendar, and
self-completes when you begin Ch.4, so this is about all we'll find out.


K.6.P.03 - A Man With an Eyepatch
--------------------------------
After you've done all of Greg's tasks in "The Man With the Eyepatch" you can
warn Dexter that 'a man with an eyepatch' is looking for him for +100 EXP. He
responds that everyone is looking for him, and if this man wants to see him,
he should just come. 


K.6.P.04 - Fire Bow
------------------
At the very pinnacle of one of the towers is a magic weapon, the Fire Bow. In
order to get it, go to the tower with the spiral staircase (if you take a left
before crossing the bridge with the Guard). Once at the top, climb up onto one
of the ledges, then jump up to the top of the tower. You'll find the Fire Bow
(50 DEX/100 dmg) along with some Fire Arrows, more of which are in the chest.


K.6.C.4 - Greg
--------------
Greg will remain at the crossroads between Sekob and Onar's farms until you
engage the bandits in combat, at which point he will show up and begin to fight
the bandits. 


K.6.Q.02.c - "The Man With the Eyepatch"
---------------------------------------
After you 1) attack Dexter, 2) are attacked by Dexter, or 3) attack the bandits
Greg will show up and will start attacking and killing the bandits for you. If
you haven't talked to Dexter just yet, Greg will run into Dexter's house and
kill him (if he's there). It's advisable to talk to Dexter before letting Greg
show up so you can get some insight and some extra EXP.

There was one ocasion that I played and Dexter wasn't in the house when Greg
went to kill him. I was experimenting with different outcomes, and thus didn't
do the showdown with Dexter, rather left the house and started killing bandits.
In short, Greg ran into the house, and when I got there, asked where Dexter
was, and all I could say was "Well he *was* here,". It turned out Dexter had
scampered up the tower a ways, and will attack you when you go up there.

At any rate, Dexter should be dead by the end of this, and you will get +100
EXP for talking to Greg. Greg will say different things if you talked to Dexter
or not, and if you killed Dexter or if Greg killed Dexter. In short, he tells
you to search Dexter's body. You will find a note in his inventory. Read the
note yourself (it plays a role in "Where Are the Missing People?") and take
it back to Greg for him to read.

That note apparently doesn't help him. He had wanted to try to find a way to
get back to the north-eastern district without a boat, and hoped Dexter knew a
way. You can mention the water mages' portal, and Greg will scoff at the idea.
Later, however, he'll wind up using it.

You can tell Greg that you ran into Skip for +100 EXP, and Greg will respond
that he waited for Skip for three days, and wonders why he was so late in 
arriving at the bay. For now, Greg will just stay at Dexter's camp until you
run into him in Jharkendar. 

BUG ALERT: There is a chance that when Greg reaches down to loot a bandit's
	   body he'll somehow wind up taking all of *your* gold too. I believe
	   that for some reason if he loots the body of a bandit with gold on
	   him, he gets your gold as well. He only loots one, and I guess if
	   he loots one that doesn't have gold (or that you already took gold
           from), this won't happen. I could be totally wrong, but it does
	   happen. Best to save your game before fighting just in case.


K.6.C.5 - Gaan
--------------
Gaan is standing just in front of the bridge to the Pass of Khorinis leading
to the Valley of Mines. 


K.6.P.05 - Another Ring Member
-----------------------------
If you talk to Gaan while wearing a Ring of Water symbolization ring, you will
get +50 EXP and can find out more about him and his tasks. He is supposed to
keep an eye on the Pass, but since the Paladins have locked it up, there hasn't
been much activity to report.


K.6.T.02 - Learning from Gaan
----------------------------
Gaan can teach you to take animal trophies: Bloodfly Wings, Bloodfly Stinger,
Remove Claws, and Remove Teeth. If you complete his quest "The Snorting Creat-
ure" when you ask him about the hunting, he can teach you how to remove Dragon
Snapper Horns. 


K.1.A.7 - The Water Mages' Site
-------------------------------
This is the region marked on the "Very Old Map" that Brahim suggests may be a
treasure map. In the original G2, it didn't serve much purpose besides a few
extra EXP points and a free Orc Slayer, the strongest 1H available in the game
before Ch.5 when you can learn how to forge magic ore weapons or consecrate
a Paladin's Sword into the Wrath of Innos. 

In NotR, however, this region now contains an underground 'temple' with a magic
portal that the Water Mages believe leads to an ancient lost civilization. 
Around this region you can see/hear/feel the effects of minor earthquakes. The
mages suspect the cause of these earthquakes is on the other side of the 
portal, but they don't know for sure what they'll find when they cross into the
next demension.


K.7.C.1 - Saturas
-----------------
When you first bump into Saturas he gets furious, recognizing you as the guy
who sabatoged the Water Magicians' plans back in the Penal Colony. You then
get to watch an FMV that was featured in G1 of you absorbing the power of the
magic ore mound into Uriziel (the uber sword). 

When you ask to join the Ring, Saturas merely says that he hasn't any time for
any of that - he leaves that work up to Vatras in Khorinis City. 

If you ask if he can teach you magic, he says he will not, due to the fact that
you've already "disturbed the balance of magic". Once you're through the Portal
(if you're a Fire Mage) he will teach you the Circles of Magic.

If you choose to 'End' the conversation, he will tell you to send Riordian
to him (K.7.Q.01).

K.7.Q.01 - "Riordian"
--------------------
This is a rather simple quest; simply continue down the vault to the left and
you will see Riordian studying the images on the wall. Tell him that Saturas
wants to see him. You're rewarded +50 EXP, quest complete.


K.7.C.2 - Riordian
------------------
Riordian tells you that he believes behind the portal lies an ancient, long 
lost civilization of Adanos-worshipping people. As told be Vatras, Riordian
can teach your Will-o-the-Wisp to search for things other than close-range
weaponry (K.7.P.01).

Once through the Portal (if you're a Fire Mage) Riordian will teach you the art
of alchemy.


K.7.P.01 - Training the Will-o-the-Wisp
--------------------------------------
Riordian, upon Vatras' advice, can teach your Wisp to find things other than
just melee weapons:

'Gold, Keys, Utensils: 2 LP'
'Long-Ranged Weapons, Ammunition: 1 LP'

The option is still available once you're in Jharkendar.


K.7.C.3 - Cronos
----------------
Cronos doesn't do much for you now, although he will sell you some things (like
he did back in the New Camp in the Colony). For now, his inventory isn't that
impressive, consisting mostly of just simple spell scrolls. However, once
through the Portal, his inventory will become much more valuable.


K.7.C.4 - Merdarion
-------------------
Merdarion works with Nefarius on trying to decipher exactly where the portal
leads and what they will find beyond it. He tells you that they need more 
ornaments in order to get the portal to work. You can ask him if he knows the
quickest way back to town, and he will tell you 'back the way you came', and
then mumble something about teleporter stones (K.7.Q.02). 

Once through the Portal (if you're a Fire Mage) he will teach you how to incre-
ase your maximum mana.


K.7.Q.02 - "The Teleporter Stones"
---------------------------------
When you press Merdarion about the teleporting stones, he tells you that they
have found at least two of these stones. You can demand the key, and use it on
the large stone door just before the large pit a room back. This will unlock 
the room with the teleporter stone and a so-so chest. Stepping onto this stone
will port you to a cave just outside the NE gate of Khorinis, but watch out!
There's an Orc Warrior here waiting to ambush you. You can have Lares kill the
orc when you're first being escorted out to this region. If you did not, be
ready to run like hell. You can eat a bit of snapperweed before stepping on
the portal if you need to. 

When you step on this portal outside of Khorinis, it takes you to a place near
the Dead Harpy Tavern (the second stone that Merdarion told you about). If you
turn around you'll see a boarded-up crevasse with a locked door. Go to the
tavern and talk to Orland about portals (+50 EXP). He'll give you the key if
you ask for it. Return to the locked door and step inside. Loot the things on
the ground and step on the stone. Having used all three teleporter stones, 
you're rewarded with +200 EXP, and you're now back at the Water Mages' site.
Tell Merdarion that you've used the stones for another +50 EXP.

              Water Mages


K.7.C.5 - Myxir
---------------
Myxir can tell you more about the 'Stone Tablets' that you've been finding. He
knows that they contain knowledge about combat and inner abilities of the lost
culture. If you ask to be taught the language, he will teach you what he knows.
-> K.6.T.1 - The Language of the Builders


K.7.T.01 - The Language of the Builders
--------------------------------------
By learning the language of the builders, you can read Stone Tablets that you
will find, which increase your base attributes or your weapon-efficiency, thus
saving you a lot of LP's. You will also need it later on to read important
things in Jharkendar.

Language of the Peasants:  5 LP (read lvl I tablets)
Language of the Warriors: 10 LP (read lvl II tablets)
Language of the Priests:  15 LP (read lvl III tablets)


K.7.C.6 - Nefarius
------------------
Nefarius is the guy in charge of trying to activate the Portal. As he tells
you, they need four ornaments to make a ring-shaped key to fit into the switch.
This begins "The Portal" (K.7.Q.03)

Once through the Portal (if you're a Fire Mage) he will teach you how to create
runes, particularly new spells of the Circle of Water that were added. 


K.7.Q.03 - "The Portal"
----------------------
When you hand Nefarius the ornament that Vatras gave to you to give to Lares
that Lares gave to you to give to Nefarius, he gets delighted and decides to
send you out to find the other 3 ornaments to form the key. He hands you a map
which shows the location of the other 3: one at Sekob's farm, one in the woods
north of Khorinis, and one at Lobart's farm, each found by activating stone
circles. When you tell Saturas about Nefarius' task for you, and show him the
map, he tells you to find someone to accompany you in the forest so that you
don't wind up dead, carrying valuable fragments of the key. 

The First Ornament: Go to Sekob's Farm. There is a stone circle just south of
Sekob's house. Push all the three buttons, and out will rise a Stone Sentinel.
Kill it for +180 EXP, and take the ornament off of its corpse. You'll probably
need to be around lvl 15 or higher with a high-damaging weapon and a good set
of armor to be able to take its hits.

The Second Ornament: Go to Lobart's Farm. Cavalorn is now standing at the stone
circle on the high hill behind his house. When you ask him about it, he tells
you that he already talked to Lobart, and he said that he and his farmers had
already messed with it, and out came the sentinel. They called in the militia,
who called in the Paladins to deal with it. When you activate the switches,
nothing happens. Tell this to Cavalorn. He suspects that the paladins have it.
Tell him that you'll go demand it from them. You'll need to be in a guild to 
be able to do this part. Go into the Upper Quarter of town and ask Lothar about
the ornament. He will send you to Lord Hagen. Ask him for the ornament, and he
will give it to you, along with +50 EXP. Tell Cavalorn (now at Vatras' Square)
that Hagen had it for another +50 EXP.

The Third Ornament: You'll need Lares' help for this. Go find him in the harbor
district and tell him you need help getting through the thick woods in the 
north. Whenever you're ready, tell him to go to the woods and he will lead you
to the entrance. At the entrance, he'll double-check that you're sure you want
to go in. Tell him you want to go. Once again, you'll get the EXP for the mobs
that he kills. He'll stop at the stone circle at the northern end of the forst.
From here, you can run around the forest and pull as many mobs to him as you
want. There are plenty wargs, orc warriors, and skeletons to be killed for up
to 300 EXP a pop. Press all the buttons on the stone circle and the sentinel
will arise. Kill it for another +180 EXP, and take the ornament off of it. When
you talk to Lares, he will go back to the city.

Now that you have the other 3 pieces of the Key, return to Nefarius with the
pieces. You will be rewarded +200 EXP and 100g for each piece you bring. Thus,
you're rewarded +600 EXP and +300g. Now comes the task of repairing the broken
artifact. Follow him to the room where Saturas resides, and the water mages 
will perform an incantation. Wait for Nefarius to automatically tell you it's
complete - he will give it to Saturas for you to get from him. However, you
cannot get the key until you've joined the ranks of the Ring of Water and have
been given a note from Vatras to give to Saturas.

You recieve Vatras' letter for Saturas once you're a member of the Ring of
Water; this is done by completing "Where Are the Missing People?" (K.3.Q.02).
Once you're a member, Vatras' first task for you is to bring Saturas a letter.
This letter tells Saturas that Vatras believe you are 'the one' and that you
are to accompany the water mages through the portal to stop Raven and free the
slaves. Deliver the letter to Saturas for +100 EXP, and he will give you the
key. Now, use it on the small, circular key-hole to the left of the portal.

In you go.

J.1.A.1 - The Ruins
-------------------
When you come out of the portal, you find yourself in a ruined temple similar
to the one you were at on the other side of the portal. When you navigate to
the outdoor areas, you find a large, ruined temple district with step-pattern
levels circling around the outer edges. 


J.1.C.1 - Saturas
-----------------
Saturas is the first person you'll meet as you emerge from the Temple. He will
tell you what he knows about the area, and one particularly interesting fact:
the water mages beat you to the Ruins by several days. Ask him all you can
and get all the information available and you'll pick up several quests.


J.1.Q.01 - "The Vanguard of the Water Mages"
--------------------------------------------
Saturas will tell you that they recruited a few more people to the Ring of
Water in the few days they've been in the new area. One of them, Lance, was
sent to explore the Bandit Camp in the swamp to the East, but hasn't returned.

Follow the trail to the east, leading to the Swamp district. You will eventual-
ly come to a small set of stairs. Continue following the path for a ways, but
venture off the road to the right a bit before the path fades away and meets
up with the log bridge. Lance's body can be found just a few feet from the
edge of the swamp. Loot his body, being sure to get his Aquamarine ring. Return
to Saturas and tell him you found Lance's body for +100 EXP. He will say that
the bandits likely did him in since he wasn't one of them. Give Saturas Lance's
ring for another +200 EXP.


J.1.Q.02.a - "Raven" 
--------------------
This is the quest to stop Raven from getting into the Temple, and ultimately
getting the artifact in it. You won't actually be able to fight him or get
anywhere close to him until you're in the Temple. For that part, see J.1.A.4,
the Temple of Adanos. 

You can, however, tell Saturas what you find out about Raven, +100 EXP for 
each important piece of information you acquire. Things you can tell Saturas
about:

- Raven has a gold mine, and you can't get in until you deal with several of
  bandits in the way (after talking to Sancho and recieving the quest "Forward
  (Into the Bandit Camp")
- Raven excavated the tomb of Khardimon and that he's trying to get into the
  Temple of Adanos. He had an apprentice by the name of Fortuno who deciphered
  the language of the builders (after talking to Fortuno when completing the
  quest "Mental Meanders")
- Raven sealed the door to the temple behind him by praying an incantation,
  and you can't get in. 

This quest will remain active until you kill Raven.


J.1.Q.03.a - "Raven's Slaves"
-----------------------------
You are tasked to free the slaves that Raven has kid-napped from Khorinis. You
won't be able to do anything about this quest until later on, when you're
actually inside the Bandit Camp. Once you're in the gold mine, talk to Patrick
to do the rest of the quest (J.3.Q.13.b).


J.1.Q.04 - "Relics"
-------------------
Saturas wants you to bring him any relics, or stone tablets, that you come by
in your exploration that could reveal more about the history of the Builders.
You can hand him an Old Stone Tablet if you have one, but he will reject it,
since they've already acquired some of those in Khorinis. 

After you've activated 2 Teleporter Stones in "The Power of the Focus Stones"
(J.1.Q.11), Merdarion will tell you that Saturas has new information for you.
As Saturas tells you, they found out that the 'Council of Five', the five 
leaders of the Builders, each had a mansion in Jharkendar. He suspects that you
can find more relics in the mansions. You can talk to Riordian for more info
about the mansions. The quest will then go side-by-side with "The Mansions of
the Builders" (J.1.Q.10).

You can find the following relics: Yellow Stone Tablet from the Library of the
Scholars in the Canyon, Purple Stone Tablet from the Mansion of the Guardians
of the Dead in the south-eastern Valley, Blue Stone Tablet from the House of
the Priests in the south-western Valley, Green Stone Tablet from the House of
the Healers in the Swamp, and the Red Stone Tablet from the Fortress of the
Warriors in the northeast. Consult the map of Jharkendar in the images section
for the NotR Guides on GameFAQs for the locations of these Mansions. 

The Red Stone Tablet is not found in a chest directly in the Mansion, as the
other four are; rather, you need to kill Esteban in the Bandit Camp at some
point to get them. He tasks you with the quest "Attempted Murder", and you're
supposed to kill him after that and get 5 Red Stone Tablets, one of which you
bring back to Saturas. 

For each tablet you bring to Saturas, you recieve +400 EXP and +200g, for a
total of +2000 EXP and +1000g. 

You later find out that these relics reveal insight to safely navigating the
Temple of Adanos, without suffering a horrible death to booby traps. When you
are ready to enter the Temple, Saturas will give them back to you for you to
use. 

This quest will remain active until you kill Raven.


J.1.Q.05 - "Bandit Armor"
-------------------------
In order to get into the Bandit Camp you need to get yourself a set of their
armor to sneak in. You can, in theory, just go in without it and kill every
bandit that attacks you on your way up to the Temple, but that isn't as fun
as playing the role you're intended to and doing the quests. Saturas suggests
bartering with the Pirates for armor.

You can ask Alligator Jack, standing to the west of the Ruins, about Bandit
Armor, and he will tell you that there was at one point a set in the Pirate
Camp. He can take you there in the quest "Rat Hunt". Once you're in the camp,
you can ask Skip about the armor, and he'll tell you that it is supposed to be
kept in Greg's hut, but since he's in Khorinis he's put Francis in charge of
the camp and keeping people out of his hut.

There are a series of things you need to do before you can get the armor:

1) Getting into the camp (J.2.P.01)
2) Getting the key to Greg's hut (J.2.P.06)
3) Searching Greg's hut & spawning Greg
4) Completing "Razor Hunt" (J.2.Q.10)

You'll need to pay Henry your admission fee before you can get into the camp.
You then will need to get the key to Greg's hut and search it, thus triggering
Greg to show up at the camp. You can ask him about the armor, but he won't
give it to you until you help improve morale in the camp and securing the
safety of the pirates by killing the Razors in the Canyon ("Razor Hunt"). 

When you've done so, he will tell you that he had originally planned for Bones
to wear the armor and spy on the bandits. Since you've been such a help to him,
he will let you use the armor to spy for him, thus getting you the quest "Spy-
ing on the Bandits" (J.2.Q.11). Talk to Bones, and he will give you the armor
and +200 EXP. You're now set to sneak into the Bandit Camp.


J.1.Q.06.b - "The Missing People"
---------------------------------
Saturas will tell you that they found the body of a fisherman in a small ruined
building along the outer circle of the Portal Ruins to the east. This fisherman
is William, Farim's missing buddy. You can find his body and read a note that
was on him, which seems to be a letter telling him how to escape from the 
Bandits, but apparenty he didn't make it.

There's nothing else to really do in this quest; it will complete itself when
you've freed the slaves in "Raven's Slaves" (J.3.Q.13.b).


J.1.Q.07 - "The Claw of Beliar"
-------------------------------
You first pick up this quest when you talk to Saturas after your talk with
Quarhodron. You ask what's in the Temple, and Saturas tells you booby traps,
the relics are the keys to understanding them, and worst of all, the Claw of
Beliar - That is what Raven's after. 

Once you've killed Raven and taken the Claw of Beliar from him, you can bring
it back to Saturas and you get to work on quest. It's short and sweet; he will
tell you your options of what to do with it. The first, is to give it to him,
and he will render it useless by burying it in the sea (what Rhademes was say-
ing when he said 'If you have the strength..... sink it in the depths of the
sea'). You will be rewarded with +2000 EXP if you choose to do this option.

The other, is to pray at a Shrine of Beliar and put the powers of the sword
to your own use. You aren't rewarded with any EXP for this option, but it's the
more fun one in my opinion. You can play with the Claw for the rest of the game
including the Dragon Hunt, which adds a new level of fun to the game. You can
bring the Claw to Xardas back in Khorinis for +450 EXP, so if you want some
extra EXP before giving it to Saturas, be sure to drop by Xardas first. 

For more information on the Claw of Beliar, see [A.2.5] (as miltia/mercenary)
or [A.3.7] (as fire magician). 


J.1.Q.08.b - "Relief for Vatras"
--------------------------------
Once you've killed Raven, Saturas will finally tell you that he's sending Myxir
into town to relieve Vatras. 


J.1.T.01 - Mage: Learning from Saturas
--------------------------------------
If you are a Fire Magician, Saturas can teach you the Circles of Magic, though
you will probably have already learned them from Parlan in the Monastary. But,
if you haven't, Saturas will teach them.


J.1.C.2 - Nefarius
------------------
Nefarius can clue you in on more information about the Portal, and will tell
you that it should be safe to use the Portal to go back to Khorinis (which it
is). 


J.1.Q.09 - "The Sunken City"
----------------------------
Nefarius will tell you some of the records that they've discovered, one of 
which contains the story of the city being destroyed by a flood, caused by the
wrath of Adanos. He will tell you to ask Saturas about it for more information.
Go to Saturas and tell him Nefarius sent you, rewarding +100 EXP and more info
on the civil war and the tale of Quarhodron and Rhademes. 


J.1.T.02 - Mage: Learning from Nefarius
---------------------------------------
Nefarius can teach you every rune for every circle, including some new ones
in the 'Circle of Water' (which you don't have to learn separately) featuring
the spells Whirlwind, Ice Lance, Geyser, Storm, Waterfist, and Dust Devil. 


J.1.C.3 - Cronos
----------------
Cronos can tell you more about the Stone Sentinels and how they were awoken.


J.1.P.01 - Cronos' New Inventory
--------------------------------
Cronos' new inventory, now that you're in Jharkendar, consists of much more 
than it did when you were in Khorinis. Now, he has two weapons new to NotR;
the Typhoon and the Wand of the Water Mages, both of which are 2H staves, 
designed to be used by mages, having low STR requirements for a moderately
effective damage. He also has just about every spell scroll you could need, 
some rune-making materials, and coolest of all, portable 'Spell Books' which
contain the list of runes that can be made for each Circle and the materials
needed for each rune. Also, be sure to buy a Map of Jharkendar from him. You
can acquire one in Greg's hut, complete with locations of buried treasure, but
its best to have one right off the bat, since you won't be able to get that
map until later.


J.1.C.4 - Myxir
---------------
Myxir doesn't play much of a role in Jharkendar. Besides him teaching the Lang-
uage of the Builders, you can talk to him about spirits. It seems that the
Builders kept close to their ancestry by summoning spirits/ghosts of deceased
elders for guidance and assistance. You can tell him that you'll let him know
if you see a spirit, which foreshadows your conversation with Quarhodron.


J.1.T.01 - The Language of the Builders
---------------------------------------
If you haven't learned it yet, you can learn the language in order to read 
Stone Tablets, and more importantly (as far as the plot goes), the Lecterns
and Relics that you'll come by. The Lecterns tell the story of Jharkendar, and
the Relics are supposed to give clues to navigating the Temple of Adanos.

Language of the Peasants:  5 LP (read lvl I tablets)
Language of the Warriors: 10 LP (read lvl II tablets)
Language of the Priests:  15 LP (read lvl III tablets)


J.1.Q.10 - "The Power of the Guardians of the Dead"
---------------------------------------------------
After you make it into the Temple of Adanos, and come up short just as Raven
mutters an incantation and steps into the doors, sealing them behind him, you
return to Saturas to tell him this news. He will tell you to go to Myxir; you
have to summon your own spirit to open the door for you.

Raven summoned Khardimon, one of the two people who know how to open the doors
since he was one of the two who sealed them in the first place. Since the grave
of Khardimon has been desecrated by Raven, you will have to summon Quarhodron.
Myxir tells you that his grave is supposed to lie directly in the West. Before
you set out to find it, he gives you a piece of paper with the words that are
supposed to summon Quarhodron. He mentions Y'Berion, the leader of the Sect
Camp in the Colony that worshipped the Sleeper, believing it to be their savior
rather than a Demon Lord. 

To find Quarhodron's grave, go to the Hermit's house, and follow the path as it
heads north from the Teleporter Stone. Keep an eye on the left, and just as the
path begins to twist vertically up and to the right, you should see a small
outcropping in the cliff wall with a small path that leads up it. Follow that
path as it winds up and around to the plateau of the grave. You can also use
the map of Jharkendar hosted here on GameFAQs in the images section for a map
marker.

In front of the grave is a troll, complete with a few goblins. Lure the troll
away from the goblins so that you can take the time to kill it. Use the trick
for slaying trolls; get in close and strafe around its backside, hitting it 2
or 3 times periodically and continuing to keep behind it. Eventually, it will
die for +500 EXP and give you the freedom to kill the goblins and head into
the grave. In the ruined building outside, you can hack into a chest contain-
ing an Old Stone Tablet and a Strength I Tablet. 

Inside the grave you will bump into a few zombies. Kill them (keep in the hall
and alternate horizontal left/right attacks if need be) and loot the grave.
You can find a nifty Magic Cross Bow, a Ring of the Warriors, several hundred
gold, and a Dexterity I tablet. 

When you're ready, find Myxir's scroll for summoning Quarhodron. You will hear
a scream, similar to what Scatty and Crimson described when Raven summoned 
Khardimon. Then, the ghost of Quarhodron will spawn in front of you. Talk to
him and let him know about the Temple of Adanos being opened, using all conver-
sation options until you find the option about the wisdom of the ancestors 
being overwhelming. He sees truth in your words, but before he will help you,
you have to prove you're trustworthy in the cause.

He will ask you a series of questions, which need to be answered correctly 
before he will help you. The answers to the questions are revealed primarily
in the Lecterns at the Library of the Scholars in the Canyon, and from the
stories you've heard from the Water Mages. Quarhodron will not tell you which
questions you get wrong, so it can be a real pain to get them right. There
are seven questions, each with six options. So, it would take a lot of trial
and error to get them right. One of which, he tells you is impossible for you
to answer.

To what caste do you belong?
	The Guardians of the Dead
Who once protected Jharkendar from enemy attacks?
	The Warrior caste
Who can give me a direct order?
	The Priests
Who brought the evil upon us?
	The Warrior caste
Who has the final word in the Council of Five?
	The Scholars
Who alleviates suffering and tends to the ill?
	The Healers
Who sealed the Portal to guard the world from Evil?
	There's no way I could know that

Most of them are common sense, especially if you payed attention to what
the Water Mages told you. The tricky part is that it requires one option to
be used twice, which may have thrown some off. Anyway, those are the answers
to his questions, and he will now agree to help you. Demand the key to the
Temple of Adanos, thus starting the quest "The Chambers of the Temple". He will
give you 'Quarhodron's Stone Tablet' which when read at the doors will grant
you access to the Temple.

Return to Myxir and tell him that you successfully summoned Quarhodron for 
+400 EXP. He will send you to tell Saturas this information. Once you've had
a talk with Saturas, you will finally be sent into the Temple after Raven.
-> J.1.A.04 


J.1.Q.11 - "The Chambers of the Temple"
---------------------------------------
The chambers in the Temple of Adanos have been rigged with traps, and you must
use the Relics as clues to figure out how to navigate the chambers safely. 
Here is what each relic says:

Red: The Council of 5 made the chambers to keep the sword hidden
Yellow: I, against the decision of the 3, built the first trap
Blue: Khardimon made the second trap, only he who follows the way of light can
      pass it.
Purple: Quarhodron and Khardimon sealed the temple. Rhademes rots for eternity.
Green: The third trap was built be Quarhodron, only he knows the way.

That being said, you can see for yourself how ambiguous they are, only one in
particular giving you any direct advice. 

It's possible that the red one simply means that you shouldn't even be able to
get into the temple. The yellow one could be in reference to Beliar, Adanos,
and Innos, where the switches you would press are the 'followers of Beliar',
the 'water of Adanos', and the 'light of Innos', but I'm not certain. The
purple relic could be a hint that you need the help of Rhademes to get past it.
And the green one, no idea; I've never gotten any information out of Quarhodron
about it, but it's fairly simple to get through. 

This quest will remain active until you kill Raven.


J.1.C.5 - Riordian
------------------
Riordian, as informed by Saturas, can give you more information about the land
surrounding the temple.


J.1.P.02 - Geography
--------------------
When you ask Riordian about Jharkendar, he can tell you about the geography.
To the north lies a desert-atmosphered canyon; to the south lies a dense,
green valley with serpentine paths and cliffs; to the west lies the pirate
camp; to the east lies the swamp and the bandit camp.



J.1.T.03 - Learning from Riordian *****
---------------------------------
Riordian can teach you alchemy and how to train your Will-o-the-Wisp.

Alchemy: Essence of Healing, Extract of Healing, Elixir of Healing, Elixir
	 of Life Force, Essence of Mana, Extract of Mana, Elixir of Mana,
	 Elixir of the Spirit. 

Will-o-the-Wisp: 'Gold, Keys, Utensils: 2 LP'
	         'Long-Ranged Weapons, Ammunition: 1 LP'


J.1.Q.12 - "The Mansions of the Builders"
-----------------------------------------
Once you've activated two of the Teleporter Stones for Merdarion in "The 
Power of the Focus Stones", Saturas will tell you about the Mansions of the
Council of Five. Riordian can tell you more. He will send you out to explore
the ancient mansions. You will find colored stone tablets in each one to give
to Saturas for "Relics".

- The Mansion of the Guardians of the Dead: the Valley
  From the Teleporter Stone in the Valley, cross the bridge near the Hermit's
  house and follow the path down to the right. Follow that path as it winds
  down to the mansion at the base of a cliff. You will run into some Orcs at
  the bridge, along with a few Snappers and Mantises on the way. Deal with 
  them however you see fit. At the entrance to the mansion is a Swamp Golem;
  be careful when fighting it, so that it doesn't punch you over the edge and
  into insta-death pitfalls. In the mansion are 6 zombies. Lure them individua-
  lly away and kill them. You can find the Purple Stone Tablet in a chest.

- The Mansion of the Priests: the Valley
  From the Teleporter Stone in the Valley, head directly south and follow the
  path until it comes to an end at the mansion at the base of a cliff. On the
  way you will run into some Grassland Scavengers, Harpies, and even an Orc
  Shaman, along with a few Goblin Warriors. The temple is loaded with Mine
  Crawlers; 8-12 of them. They're fairly simple to kill. You can find the Blue
  Stone Tablet in a chest.

- The Mansion of the Healers: the Swamp
  You will need to visit this mansion for the quest "The Stone Tablet in the
  Swamp", a quest you pick up in order to get into the Bandit Camp. From the
  Teleporter Stone in the Swamp, head south-southeast, being sure to stay in-
  between the bog to your left and the rock wall on your right. You will come
  to a path that leads up to the mansion with a few lizards out in front of 
  it. At the top of the stairs and inside are several Stone Sentinels guarding
  it. Kill them, and find the Chest Key on one of their bodies to open the 
  chest and obtain two Green Stone Tablets. One of them is for Franco, and the
  other is for Saturas. 

- The Mansion of the Scholars: the Canyon
  From the Canyon Teleporter Stone, follow the left wall of the canyon until
  it branches out into a small extension in the north. There are several orcs
  out here, complete with orc tents. You will have to deal with these orcs for
  "The Orcs in the Canyon" that you get when you tell Riordian this, but you
  will need to kill at least the ones on the stairs to the Library. Inside you
  will run into some Stone Sentinels and a few Fire Devils (easily killed with
  two or three Ice Lance scrolls; they fight similar to Shadowbeasts). The
  door to the left is unlocked, and when explored you will find the Yellow 
  Stone Tablet, along with Archery III, Life III, Strength III Tablets. The
  door to the right is locked, and requires the key from the Leader of the Orc
  Horde outside. In it, you can find a Cross Bow III Tablet, a Ring of Magic,
  a mana elixir of +3 mana, 3 Old Stone Tablets, and several valuable goodies.
  Be sure to read all of the Lecterns (provided you learned the Language of
  the Builders from Myxir or the Hermit) for +100 EXP per lectern. You will
  get the back-story of Jharkendar, summarized in [G.4].

- The Mansion of the Warriors: the North-East (Bandit Camp)
  This mansion is unlike the others in the fact that you can't just go to it.
  This mansion is beyond the Bandit Camp, so you have to first do all the
  quests to get into the camp and then into the mine. The actual mansion part
  that you have to visit before you can tell Riordian you've been there, is
  connected to the Temple of Adanos that you have to follow Raven through. 
  When you've killed Bloodwyn and gotten access to the Temple, go straight, 
  into the room with Raven's Henchmen (zombies). In here you can find a bunch
  of potions, some valuable treasure, and a King's Sorrel. The Red Stone Tablet
  of this mansion has to be acquired from Esteban. 

For each mansion you visit, you can return to Riordian for +100 EXP. Once you
have visited all of them, you can tell this to Riordian for +300 EXP.


J.1.Q.13 - "The Orcs in the Canyon"
-----------------------------------
When you tell Riordian about the Orcs in front of the Library of the Scholars
in the Canyon, he tasks you with killing them; he'd rather not have them in
that area. If you haven't killed them already, re-visit the Canyon and kill
them. Use the tips for killing orcs in the Guide [G.2]; try to pull them away
in groups and use cliff walls and tents for protection. 

You can also bring a bunch of pirates down in "Razor Hunt" (J.3.Q.10) to kill
them.

Once you've killed the Leader of the Horde, you can return to Riordian to
complete the quest for +300 EXP.


J.1.C.6 - Merdarion
-------------------
He's got such a fascinating interest in teleporting.


J.1.Q.14 - "The Power of the Focus Stones"
------------------------------------------
Talking to Merdarion will get you this quest to activate the Portal stones in
front of the Portal. When you look at the map, you notice there are ten blue
dots; these mark the locations of the stones. As you see on the map, the five
at the Portal are arranged in a pentagon; each port leads to a dot in the area
that it represtents in the pentagram. Thus, you can find the five portal dots
in the five areas of the map. He will give you a Focus Stone to place on a
pedestal near the stones to activate them. 

These stones were used in the first Gothic originally to form the magic Barrier
to keep the prisoners in. They were later collected by the Hero for the Water
Mages to use on their large mound of magic ore, which they were going to use
to try to blow up the Barrier. Apparently, they still have them.

The first to check-out is obviously the one in the Portal ruins that you came
past earlier. Go into the temple and place the Focus Stone on the pedestal up
the small incline and step onto the stone. It will take you back outside to
the pentagon. Tell Merdarion you used one of them for +500 EXP and +150g. You
can then step back on the teleporter stone for another +100 EXP and a journal
entry saying where it goes to. 

The rest is soon told; go to the rest of the blue dots on the map one-by-one,
putting each Focus Stone on the pedestal and returning to Merdarion for your
+500 EXP and +150g rewards, then using the stones for the extra +100 bonuses.

The teleporter stone in the north-east, the Bandit Camp, requires more work to
get to, since you have to complete the quests to get into the camp, and then
into the mine first (J.3.Q.1 & J.3.Q.5 -> J.3.Q.11). 

When you've activated two of these, Merdarion tells you that Saturas needs to
talk to you. You can talk to him to pick up "The Mansions of the Builders".


J.1.T.04 - Learning from Merdarion
---------------------------------
Merdarion can train you to increase your maximum mana.


J.1.C.7 - Alligator Jack
------------------------
Standing just outside the Portal Ruins to the west is Alligator Jack. Just by
his appearance, you can tell he's a pirate. When you get near him, he pulls 
you into conversation, pointing out that you're not like the others (the Water
Mages). You can ask him about acquiring some Bandit Armor, and he will tell
you that they have or at least had a set in the Pirate Camp to the west. Upon
being asked how to get there, he will offer to take you, but you'll have to
help him first. See J.1.Q.13.


J.1.Q.15 - "Rat Hunt"
---------------------
Jack will ask your help in getting meat for the pirate camp. The only edible
thing in the valley is the Swamp Rats, however disgusting that sounds. When
you are ready, he will set out to his favorite rat spot; The Hollow. Follow
him through the cave tunnel and down the side-path along the lake. You'll get
EXP for everything that he kills along the way. At the Hollow, you find a mere
3 Swamp Rats, which is only about half of what Jack needs. He tells you that
the next destination is the Canyon, a very dangerous place as he warns.

Go with him up to the Canyon; feel free to talk to Malcolm along the way; you
can save 100 gold on the entrance fee to the camp, and this may be about your
only chance to actually talk to him. 

At the Canyon, you will kill a few more Swamp Rats. Once they're dead, he will
give you 10 chunks of meat, regardless of whether or not you got all the meat
off the corpses. This will give you the quest "Meat for Morgan", and put you
right outside the Pirate Camp and one of the Teleporter Stones (just across 
the water in a small cave). You are rewarded +200 EXP. 


J.1.A.2 - The Pirate Camp
-------------------------
This is the home destination of Skip and Greg, whom you met back in Khorinis.
You can pick up a fair amount of quests and booty from these guys; it's also
got a nice atmosphere and music. Before you can do any of the quests in the
overview, you will first have to get into the camp (J.2.P.1). 


J.2.C.1 - Alligator Jack
------------------------
After you've completed "Rat Hunt" he's now sitting in a small hut/canopy to
the left of the Palisade gate where Henry stands. He's also found standing a
short ways out from the camp on the central trail.


J.2.Q.01 - "Meat for Morgan"
----------------------------
Directly after completing "Rat Hunt", Jack gives you 10 chunks of meat to take
to Morgan in the Pirate Camp. You can use this as a means to get a 100 coin
discount on your admission fee with Henry. When you're in, follow the shore
line around to the right and find Morgan lying on a cot. Wake him up, let him
drink his gin, and give him the meat for +200 EXP.


J.2.T.01 - Learning from Jack
-----------------------------
Jack can teach you how to pull teeth (3 LP), take animal skins (3 LP), and
how to wield a bow.


J.2.C.2 - Henry
---------------
Your first obstacle to getting into the camp. Whether you respond 'friend/foe'
doesn't matter, you'll get the same quests and options afterwards. You can
pick 60g off of him. 


J.2.P.01 - Admission to the Camp
-------------------------------
Before you can go into the camp, Henry will charge you a hefty 500 gold, which
might be chump change for you by now. There are, however, a few things that
can be done to lower this price:

- Talk to Malcolm and get his message for Henry about the wood for -100g on
  the price.
- Tell Henry you're delivering meat for Morgan for -100g on the price.
- Kill the bandits in the Tower for -200g on the price. *

* You will get the opportunity to kill them later with a +200g reward, but you
  also get a new quest for killing the bandits after you've already joined the
  camp. The money comes up the same either way, but you can get some extra EXP
  if you wait.

Thus, you can get the price down to 100g, or 300g if you want the extra EXP. 
In the end, you come out 'paying' a total of 100g either way. Pay him and you
are free to enter the camp.


J.2.Q.02 - "The Tower"
---------------------
You first pick up this quest when you ask Henry about the bandits just outside
the camp. He advises you not to try to take them on yourself, since he'll be
sending two of his boys out there to deal with them soon. You can, however,
go kill them yourself and return to Henry for +200 EXP and -200g on the price
to enter the camp. HOWEVER: if you wait until you've joined, you can take one
of the pirates with you, and will get a follow-up quest.

When you've already become a member of the Pirates, you can ask Henry to join
his raiding troup, and he will task you with killing the bandits in the tower.
You can take either the saw pirate or the hammer pirate - it doesn't matter.
The only difference is the saw pirate will call you an asshole when you're done
and the hammer pirate will say you're 'all right'. 

Go back down the path a ways and go up the hill to the tower. There are three
bandits here, each with a ranged weapon. So run at an angle so you don't get
hit on the way there and kill them, they're fairly simple, espeicially with
a pirate helper. Be careful not to aggro the mantises around to the side of
the tower, who can make things messy real easily. You can loot an Ash Bow here.

When they're dead and you've had your chat with your pirate buddy, return to
Henry for +200 EXP and +200g. This will let you get "Wood for the Palisade".


J.2.Q.03 - "Wood for the Palisade"
---------------------------------
You may have already heard from Malcolm that it will take a bit longer to get
the wood for the Palisade. Once you've completed "The Tower" you can ask Henry
if there's anything else to be done, and he will send you to tell Malcolm - or
rather Owen, to hurry up with the wood. 

Follow the path back the way you came from the Portal Ruins to the spot where
you saw Malcolm earlier. You'll notice he's no longer there. Climb up the rock
structures along the side of the cliff wall to get access to an elevated cave.
Owen is sitting next to a fire.

Talk to him to find out about what happened to Malcom, starting another quest,
"Malcolm" (J.2.Q.12). It's a rather simple quest, involving dropping down a
pitfall and finding out if Malcom is still alive or not. You'll have to do 
this before Owen will tell you about the wood.

Once you've done that, tell him your orders from Henry, and Owen will tell you
that he will send it to the camp 'sooner or later'. Go back to Henry and tell
him this for +300 EXP and +200g. 


J.2.T.02 - Learning from Henry
-----------------------------
After you've asked around the camp about trainers, Henry will teach you how to
use 2H weapons.


J.2.C.3 - Bones
---------------
There's not a lot of stuff with Bones, since he doesn't want to be disturbed
because of his 'mission' from Greg. He refuses to even talk about it. Eventual-
-ly you will get the Medium Bandit Armor from him. You can pick 104g off of
him. He will tell you about Morgan and Henry training you 1H and 2H skills
respectively, and that Jack could teach you about hunting. He also suggests
Samuel (who doesn't really teach you anything, he may have meant Brandon, who
trains your STR/DEX).


J.2.C.4 - Garett
----------------
Garett is a merchant and the stock-holder of the Pirates. You can buy some 
things off of him, not much of it is particularly worthwhile, besides his Belt
of Protection (+7 Weapon/Arrow defense). You can pick 55g off of him.


J.2.Q.04 - "Garett's Compass"
----------------------------
When you ask Garett to tell you more about Greg, you hear that he is a greedy
bastard who likes to take all the booty for himself. You can further inquire
about a golden compass that Garett mentions having had to give over to Greg,
and he will tell you where he thinks it might be buried. He tells you that he
often saw Greg on the southern beach, and that Greg said 'Death himself watches
your compass'. 

From Garett, head to the sea and follow the shore to the left around the large
jutting-out rock formation and you'll come to another beach. Here are some
lizards and fire lizards, the latter of which might be devastating to fight.
You can, however, take them out with some spell scrolls with moderate ease. If
you lack scrolls or simply want to save them, you can use the strategy for
fighting them in the Tips section of this FAQ. 

Continue following the beach around and you will come to a tree with a skeleton
hanging from it, along with a red 'X' by the base of the tree. With a pick axe
in your inventory, dig-up the buried loot and you will find Greg's Compass. 
You can also explore the cave just past this, containing 3 zombies and the
Warrior Amulet, along with a Ring of Skill (+3 DEX). 

Return to Garett and give him his compass for +300 EXP and the Belt of Protect-
ion. If you already bought it, he will refund your 1000 gold. 


J.2.C.5 - Pirate Chef
---------------------
He doesn't have a name, but has some pretty nice information for you.


J.2.Q.05 - "Grog for the Cook"
-----------------------------
A very short and simple quest - when you talk to him, he'll tell you that he's
so very thirsty from being around the fire all day. Offer him a bottle of Grog
that you've likely come by (or buy some from Samuel) for +100 EXP.


J.2.P.02 - Wrecked Merchant Vessel
---------------------------------
If you've given the Chef Pirate a bottle of Grog, he will tell you that he 
hopes Greg gets back soon and gives someone else chef duty. He heard about a
merchant vessel that hit a reef, and now all of its goods are washing up along
the shore, and he wants to go loot it.

You can then go do so yourself. In order to find the goods the easiest, have
the mouse turned on and pull it under the water. You can see things within a
15-20 foot distance like this. Or, you can more effectively pull it down to
water-level so that the water rises and falls along the lens. Like this, when
the water rises above the lens, you can see everything underneath clear as day
at a much greater distance than with it fully under.

If you go all along the shore, north and south, you can find: casket, skull,
rum, gold chalice, pure mana potion, jewel casket, one lump of ore, silver
plate x2, and silver chalice x2.


J.2.C.6 - Brandon
-----------------
He's standing near the fire, usually talking to Matt. 


J.2.Q.06 - "A Drink for Brandon"
-------------------------------
When you ask if he can teach you anything, he will hint that he wants some
form of payment before you can learn from him. In true pirate nature, offer to
buy him a drink and he will agree. Try to give him some Grog, and he will get
disgusted at the notion. He wants something a bit stronger, one of Samuel's
special brews, the 'Hasty Herring'.

Go to Samuel's cave, north a bit up the beach. Ask him for something stronger,
and choose to buy the 'Hasty Herring' - you will get to drink a free sample.
Then buy one from him (you may want to buy a few for yourself, once you find
out what it does) and bring it back to Brandon.

You probably noticed that you're running at double-speed now. The Hasty Herring
has the same effects as eating a plant of Snapperweed or drinking a Potion of
Run Speed. It seems to last about 2 minutes, and costs a paltry 30g, so it may
be wise to buy a few for yourself for those times when you have to cross a 
large distance that you've already explored/cleared.

Take the 'Herring back to Brandon for +100 EXP.


J.2.T.03 - Learning from Brandon
-------------------------------
Once you've completed "A Drink for Brandon", he will train your Strength and
Dexterity.


J.2.C.7 - Matt
--------------
You can't pick up any quests from him, but he can tell you that the bandits
seem to be rolling in gold, and that they never paid for their last shipment
that they bought from the bandits. You can talk to Skip about this for his
quest. You can pick 91g off of Matt.


J.2.C.8 - Skip
--------------
When you talk to Skip, he will remember you from Khorinis (assuming you talked
to him), but that he also recognizes your face on a Wanted Poster, the very
one you've already heard about from the Bandit on the path from Xardas' Tower
and from Pablo. 

You can tell him you saw Greg in Khorinis for +100 EXP

He can tell you that Garett will sell you some things; he won't take you to
Khorinis, ever.


You can pick 43g off of him.


J.2.Q.07 - "Skip Has Run Dry"
----------------------------
Asking Skip about Angus and Hank, when you ask him about the bandits, will
start this quest. They were supposed to sell 20 bottles of Grog to the bandits
but never came back. Skip suspects they're dead. He tells you that Morgan and
Bill went out to look for them, but never found anything. You can then go to
Bill and Morgan and ask them about it.

Bill was good friends of theirs, and will tell you that they often hung out at
a cave to the east of the camp. He will tell you to talk to Jack for more info
on the cave.

Morgan won't tell you much, other than Angus still had a ring that once was
Morgan's, that he'd like back (J.2.P.4). 

Ask Jack, outside the camp, about the cave that Angus and Hank hung out at, 
and he will direct you to check out the Hollow that you visisted earlier. Go
down the path to the Hollow at the lake. Swim into the water to some rocks on
the cliff wall to the right (if you're facing the lake). You'll notice you can
climb up them to a cave.

In the cave are the bodies of Hank and Angus, which you can get 2 old coins
and Morgan's Ring off of. Go back and confirm this news for Skip; he will tell
you go break the news (gently) to Bill, getting you "The Murderer of Anugs and
Hank" (J.2.Q.8).

As far as I know, the only way to complete this quest is to buy the Grog off
of Samuel or Lucia (in the bandit camp), since Juan (who you later find out
from various sources, is the one who killed Angus and Hank) doesn't have the
Grog on him. Lucia does suspiciously have 20 bottles of Grog in her inventory,
but you can't kill her and take them or anything.

Anyway, if you give Skip 20 bottles of Grog (whether or not they were the same
that were stolen from the pirates) for +200 EXP. Skip will also give you either
200g or a Ring of Ore Skin, which you probably already have one or two of, and
will likely find more of in your quests; it's not worth much, I'd take the gold
to pay for your fees of acquiring them, myself. 



J.2.P.03 - Information on the Bandits
------------------------------------
Skip can tell you the most about the history of the bandits. The pirates
brought the bandits over on their boat (for a price, of course) originally, 
but the bandits set up a camp in the swamp and kept to themselves. They used
to trade with them, but they since haven't paid for their last shipment, and
have assumably done away with Hank and Angus, the delivery guys. Asking more
about this will get you "Skip Has Run Dry".


J.2.C.9 - Bill
--------------
Bill is sawing the wood for the Palisade, which he seems to think won't do any
good if the bandits actually did launch an attack. You can ask him where he
comes from, and he will inform you that he used to live in Khorinis, living
off of lifting peoples' pockets, but later joined with the pirates to avoid
constantly running from the militia. You can pick 205g off of him.


J.2.T.04 - Learning from Bill
----------------------------
Once you've found out that he can pick pockets, he will teach you how for 10LP
but also warns that you'll need to be dexterous to succeed at it.


J.2.Q.08 - "The Murderer of Angus and Hank"
------------------------------------------
Once you've found the bodies of Angus and Hank in "Skip Has Run Dry", and you
break the news to Bill, he will want the name of the guy who did it. In order
to find this out, you'll first need the Bandit Armor in order to talk to some
of the bandits.

Once you have the Armor, go into the Swamp and find Logan; follow the first
log bridge to Sancho, go straight past another log bridge to the islet with
Miguel, turn left here and follow another log bridge to the alley with Logan.
In a cave at his camp, you will meet Tom, a bandit with some issues. 

Ask him what he's doing there, and he'll tell you a story that seems to match
up with what Skip was telling you earlier; he was good friends with some of 
the pirates and used to trade with them, and on his last deal, he was attacked
by Juan, who killed the pirate traders. Juan took the goods from the pirates
and chased after Tom, who was too fast for Juan to keep up with. These traders
sound an aweful lot like Angus and Hank, eh? 

If you return to Bill to tell him this, he will wish that this Juan suffered,
and died. Now, you'll have to actually find this Juan. His cave is located in
the far east of the swamp, the most-eastern part of the map that you can see.
Enter the cave, and you will see Juan and a generic Bandit chilling there. Talk
to him, and he will assume you're an errand boy for Esteban, but that he won't
cough up the goods unless Huno or Fisk or Esteban or *someone* pays for them.
Tell him you don't come on behalf of Esteban and engage him in combat. Once
he's dead (the other bandit too, since he'll attack you for fighting Juan),
go back to Bill and tell him this for +200 EXP. 

Be sure to hold onto the two packages you got off of Skip, because they'll be
used for a quest later on with Huno and Fisk.


J.2.C.10 - Morgan
-----------------
Morgan is the very lazy raid leader of the bandits. His job is to make sure
the beasts around the camp don't get too close and to keep the pirates supplied
with food. You can pick 43g off of him.


J.2.Q.09 - "The Northern Beach"
------------------------------
Once you've given him the meat from Jack in "Meat for Morgan", you can ask
Morgan to join his raiding troup, and he will gladly let you in. Your first
task is to clean the northern beach of the lurkers there.

Head up the beach from his 'hut' and kill the lizards and lurkers out there.
If you return now, he will ask about the cave, which is also included in the
northern beach. So, venture into the cave and you'll run into a shadowbeast.
It may be too difficult for you, but it should be no problem if you use the
strategy in the Tips section of this FAQ.

Once the shadowbeast and the lurkers/lizards are dead, return to Morgan for
+300 EXP and +150g.


J.2.P.04 - Morgan's Ring
-----------------------
You first find out about his ring when you pick up "Skip Has Run Dry", and he
wants it back. You can find the ring on Angus' dead body in the cave at the 
lake at the Hollow (as part of Skip's quest). Return it to Morgan for +200 EXP.

HOWEVER, that is a very nice ring, adding +10% to your 1H skill. If you're 
using 1H weapons and want the ring, you can beat him up and take it back.

To do this without attracting the attention of any other pirates in the area,
equip a bow and run to the water near the cannon and provisions there. Aim the
bow at him by using the action button and he will threaten you to put it down.
When you don't, he'll come to you, in which case you can equip your sword and
knock him down, taking the ring, the meat you gave to him earlier, some gin, 
and his Double-Bladed axe from him.


J.2.T.05 - Learning from Morgan
------------------------------
As you heard from Bones, Morgan can teach you 1H combat.


J.2.C.11 - Samuel	
-----------------
Samuel resides in a cave a small ways up the northern end of the beach, just
past Morgan's residence. You can buy plenty of alcoholic drinks from him. 
There isn't a whole lot of content with this guy, besides what you need to do
with him for other peoples' problems.


J.2.P.05 - Recipes for Samuel
----------------------------
Samuel is always looking for recipes for new brews; you can give him the recipe
for Lou's Hammer and Lou's Double Hammer that you get from Snaf and Lou's
stash at the bandit camp for +100 EXP each. You can then take them back from
him for free, when you ask him 'what else he has' to bring up his inventory.
Both recipes will be there with no charge value on them. He will now also be
able to make them, even if he doesn't have the hard copy of the recipe on him.

Lou's Hammer is used for the quest "Hammer Booze" (J.3.Q.7), and doesn't seem
to have any worthwhile effect when drunk. I haven't found any use for Lou's
Double Hammer - I had thought I could use it to KO someone, like Scatty, for
instance, in J.3.P.10 - A Beer for Scatty, since its description says it will
knock-out even the heaviest drinker. However, there doesn't seem to be any use
for the drink, besides the EXP from Samuel. If you drink it, it damages your
HP by 1/2 of the current value.


J.2.C.12 - Francis
------------------
Francis has been put in charge of the camp while Greg is out at Khorinis to 
get more loot. He doesn't serve much purpose in the game content besides gett-
ing Greg's key to hit hut.


J.2.P.06 - Greg's Key
--------------------
In order to get the key to Greg's hut for "Bandit Armor" (J.1.Q.5), you will
have to first go through Francis. There are a few ways to get it, with an
optimum method for maximum EXP. The four ways:

1) Beat him up and take it from him (+300 EXP for the victory)
2) Pick it off of him (+100 EXP)
3) Pay him 2000g (+0 EXP)
4) Trade it for his paybook (+0 EXP)

When you first talk to Francis and learn that he's guarding Greg's hut and has
the key, you can ask Skip for advice; he tells you to ask Samuel, since he
knows almost everything about everyone in the camp, and can likely tell you 
about some leverage to get over Francis. Samuel will tell you about something
very important of Francis' that he buried in one of the mines in the Canyon.

The mine in question is the first one you'll come to if you follow the right
wall of the canyon. You'll likely run into some Razors on the way, and the few
Mine Crawlers inside. There is a red 'X' that you can dig up, one of the items
you come by is a 'Treasure Chest'. You can open it in your inventory to get
a Paybook and 153 gold coins.

You can use the Paybook now and Francis will give you the key, but there is a
better way to do this. First, pick the key off of him, then beat him up (even
without the dialogue option to do so), then tell him about the Paybook. Now,
without the key, will give you +500g to give it to him. 

Now that you have the key, enter Greg's hut and loot everything: Iron Skin
Ring (weapon defense +3), 3 white rum, 135 coins, Greg's Log Book, silver 
plate, silver dish x2, silver chalice, silver candlestick, Message in a Bottle
(when opened, contains a treasure map marking all the red 'X's), sextant,
apple tobacco, gold candlestick, 50 old coins, 3 swampweed reefers, 5 gold
nuggets, glacier quartz, 87g, 3 fish, and 200g in satchels.

When you're done, leave, and Greg will show up, kicking Francis off of his 
bench and asking if you've done any work.


J.2.C.13 - Greg
---------------
Once you've searched his hut, Greg will show up back in the pirate camp. When
you've dealt with the razors in the canyon in "Razor Hunt", you can ask him
some questions, like his ship and how he got here. Despite his attitude about
Water Mages and a magic portal when you told him back at Dexter's camp, he
wound up using it afterall.


J.2.Q.10 - "Razor Hunt"
-----------------------
Greg will want you to do some work for him, taking over Morgan's old job that
he never did any work with. He wants you to kill the razors in the canyon,
five of which spawn fresh once Greg gets back. So, if you already cleared the
canyon, don't worry, there will be new razors to slay. You can, in theory,
go kill them without having officially picked up the quest; if you do that,
you will instantly get the option to tell Greg that you killed them all,
without ever leaving. He will give you the Pirate Armor, which may very well
be the best armor you've come by, if you haven't gotten the Crawler Plate 
Armor.

Razors are allegedly hard to kill, though they're probably a piece of cake for
you if you've taken the time to explore and build yourself up. At any rate, 
you can bring a few pirates with you if you think you'll need the help. You 
can bring: Brandon, Matt, Skip, Jack, Chef Pirate, and the Pirate on the bench
across from Garett.


Enter the Canyon and just keep an eye out for the razors. You should find all
5 of them before you get to the overpassing bridge just past the Library. If 
the count-down meter says you missed some, go back, as you may have missed one
on the other side of a large boulder or something. 

Once they're dead, the pirates will be ready to go back, but will stay with
you to hunt, so long as you keep within the Canyon. You can take them down to
the Orcs outside the Library if you haven't already killed them. When you're
done with them, though, tell each one to go back to the camp.

Return to Greg and report that you've killed all of the razors for +250 EXP.


J.2.Q.11 - "Spying on the Bandits"
----------------------------------
Having completed "Razor Hunt", Greg will decide that you're the best man to
send in to check what's up with the bandits. He needs to know what's going on
over there, particularly why they're hanging around out there. He had original
-ly planned to send Bones over there; go to him and get the armor from him for
+200 EXP.

Equip it, and head to the swamp. Follow the log bridge you come to by follow-
ing the main trail from the Poral Ruins until you get to the first outpost
with Sancho. You can talk to him and find out that Raven has a gold mine there
and that they have diggers mining the gold. 

Return to Greg and tell him this for +200 EXP and a Warrior Ring.


J.2.C.14 - Owen
---------------
Owen is not actually in the pirate camp, but he's a member of their expedition
for palisade wood. You don't get to meet him until after you've joined the
pirate camp. You can pick 30g off of him.


J.2.Q.12 - "Malcom"
-------------------
If you return to the spot that you met Malcolm and climb up the rock stairs
to the side of the Tree Saw, you will bump into Owen. Talking to him, you will
find out that he and Malcolm were attacked by a lurker, so they scurried up
into the cave. The lurker followed them, and Malcolm started to fight it. They
then both fell down a crevasse, and Owen hasn't heard or seen Malcolm since.
You'll need to do this quest before Owen will tell you anything about the wood
in "Wood for the Palisade"

Now for the fun part. Go to the back of the cave and drop into the crevasse.
You'll fall a rediculously long distance, picking up +100 EXP for a 'Stunt
Bonus' before hitting the water (be warned, if you do this multiple times, it
will deduct 100 EXP for sensing you trying to exploit unlimited EXP). Swim
down a bit and swim under a rock wall into an underground grotto, complete with
one lurker and one deceased Malcolm.

Kill the lurker and loot Malcolm's body for a 2H combat III tablet, along with
some other goodies in the area, including some gold, gold nuggets, mushrooms,
and rune-crafting materials. Continue past this grotto into the water and swim
down under another rock wall, and you will come out at the lake in the Hollow.

Return to Owen and tell him that Malcolm is dead for +300 EXP and the revelat-
ion that Owen wasn't helping Malcolm to kill the lurker, and now wishes that
he did.


J.1.A.3 - The Bandit Camp
-------------------------
This place brings back a lot of memories if you played the first Gothic, due
to the fact that you run into so many old friends and enemies in here. A lot
of the bandit camp is composed of ex-members of the Old Camp back in the
Colony. The camp has three 'levels': the hunters in the swamp, the camp distr-
ict, and the mine/temple district. You'll have to work your way through the
quests to get up to the mine and temple. Just a warning, you will be attacked
by the bandits if you approach any of them whilst not wearing Bandit Armor. 

It is possible to just fight your way up to the temple, killing every bandit
in sight, but that isn't as fun as playing the role and sneaking in. You get
a lot more content out of the game if you play them with the Bandit Armor, and
it is all-around much more enjoyable. You can come back later and kill any of
them that you please for exp/loot, but try not to kill any that can be spared
for now.


J.3.C.1 - Sancho
----------------
Sancho is probably the first person you'll run into of the bandits. He is 
standing at the first islet on the way to the bandit camp from the Portal
Ruins. You can pick 40g off of him.


J.3.P.01 - The Camp
------------------
Sancho tells you a lot about the camp's structure, particularly that you can't
go straight to the gold mine - you have to first work for Franco before you
can go in. He mentions that Franco got the job by killing Fletcher, the old
leader of the Hunters (Fletcher was a vendor for the Guards in the Old Camp).
This foreshadows what you will have to do to get into the camp.

You also find out about the gold mine; this you can tell Saturas and Greg for
+100 and +200 EXP respectively


J.3.C.2 - Miguel
----------------
Miguel is standing at the second islet, just past Sancho, to the bandit camp
entrance. Miguel tells you about his history, working for Ignaz the alchemist.
He liked to experiment with brewing mind altering potions, and one day Ignaz
drank one of them by mistake, and that has since rendered him unpredictable.
For this, Miguel was cast into the Barrier (though we never did meet him in 
G1). Remember this, because you'll need to talk to him about a mind-restoring
potion for Fortuno (J.3.Q.6). You can pick 48g off of him.


J.3.P.02 - Miguel's Inventory
----------------------------
Miguel can sell you some potions if you need them.


J.3.C.3 - Franco
----------------
Franco is the leader of the Hunters; the people who do chores in the swamp
until Thorus calls for more diggers. You'll eventually have to kill him to
get into the camp, but hold off on this; you can get extra experience by doing
his tasks before finally killing him. You can pick Franco's Amulet off of him
(+4 STR/+4 DEX/+40 Life), which you'll eventually get when you kill him, but
you can get EXP for this.


J.3.Q.01 - "Forward (Into the Bandit Camp)"
-----------------------------------------
You'll have to mess with this quest to get into the Bandit Camp. Before you
can get in, Franco will have a few tasks for you. 1) Help Logan with the
Swampsharks, and 2) Get him a green stone tablet. You can tell him to give you
one NOW, which will engage him in combat; if you kill him, good game, you'll
have to later, but it's best to hold off. First, he will send you to Ramon to
see if Thorus needs a new person. Ramon will confirm this; go back to Franco
and tell him. He will first send you to help Logan.

Each part has its own separate quest: J.3.Q.2 - "Swamp Shark Hunt", and J.3.Q.3
- "The Stone Tablet in the Swamp". 

First go to Logan and tell him that Franco sent you; he will tell you that the
two of you are going to kill some swampsharks. When you say that you're ready,
3 sharks will spawn near the edge of his slab of land to the north (you will
hear the bellow of the sharks when they do). Kill them and report back to 
Franco for task #2 and +200 EXP.

For the second, he sends you to Edgor to get a green stone tablet. To get to
Edgor, go back to Sancho and turn left to cross the log bridge. Edgor and a
bandit will be sitting around or near a small campfire. Talk to him and find
out that he hasn't gotten it yet. As you will have to do in "The Mansions of
the Builders" (if you haven't already) you have to go explore the mansion in
the south (easily found in the SE on your map). Explore that ruin, get the 
green tablets (one for Saturas and one for Franco) and a Ring of the Priests,
and return to Franco for +200 EXP.

When you ask if you can finally get in, he will say 'no', and that Logan was
next on the list so he goes in now. Not to mention, he'd also like to keep you
around, since you've been more helpful to him than any other person out there.
You'll get a response to fight him - do so, and kill him. Other bandits won't
interfere. 

Go talk to Ramon for +500 EXP, and he will tell you to take over Franco's job.
You'll bargain with him to have Thorus send one of his guys to take over the
position so that there will be a slot open for you. Thus, you get entrance into
the lower Bandit Camp.


J.3.C.4 - Logan
---------------
From the entrance to the Lower Bandit Camp (where you meet Franco), go towards
Miguel and turn right on his islet. Follow the log bridge to a strip of land
with a small camp site, and you will find Logan. You can pick 50g off of him.


J.3.Q.02 - "Swamp Shark Hunt"
----------------------------
Talking to Logan will get you the task to help him kill the swampsharks. You'll
have to do this for Franco if you haven't picked up the quest, but don't worry
if you haven't. If you've already killed them with Logan, you can instantly
tell Franco you've done it, without having to leave. Swampsharks are constantly
getting closer and closer to Logan's camp site, and he needs help fending them
off.

Whenever you're ready, tell him to get going, and 3 swampsharks will spawn 
just north a bit. Go with Logan and slay the swampsharks. There is no reward
for this quest, besides Logan teaching you tricks about hunting.


J.3.T.01 - Learning from Logan
-----------------------------
After completing "Swamp Shark Hunt" Logan can teach you how to skin animals
(5 LP), remove claws (3 LP), and remove teeth (3 LP).


J.3.C.5 - Tom
-------------
Tom is in the cave at Logan's camp site. You can pick 52g off of him.


J.3.P.03 - Tom's Problem
-----------------------
While not a documented quest, it is still an EXP-rewarding task that you can
fulfill. Talk to Tom and find out about his troubles with Juan; he was in good
connections with the pirates and often ran trading deals for the other bandits
with them. One day, Juan popped out of the background and attacked Tom and the
pirates, killing the two pirates, taking the goods, and chasing after Tom.

His dilemma is that he can't go back into the camp, not while Esteban is still
around; Juan was working for Esteban, and so now Esteban will surely punish
Tom for his dealings with the pirates. He tells you that Fisk and Huno both
had shipments that he was going to pick-up.

After you've completed "Attempted Murder" (J.3.Q.5) and killed Esteban, you
can return to Tom and tell him that Esteban is dead for +100 EXP. He will now
be found standing in Snaf's Tavern with Logan.


J.3.C.6 - Edgor
---------------
Edgor is sitting at a camp site southeast of Sancho. You can pick a heavy 7g
off of him.


J.3.Q.03 - "The Stone Tablet in the Swamp"
-----------------------------------------
As a part of Franco's chores, you can tell Edgor that you were sent to get the
green stone tablet from him. Edgor will tell you that he hasn't even been to
try to get it, because he knows how dangerous old ruined buildings in the swamp
are. He will *attempt* to tell you where it is, but has since forgotten. If 
you look on your map, you will see quite obviously a small path leading to a
ruined building in the southern end of the swamp; that's the destination.

Go there, fighting the lizards at the base of the mansion and the stone senti-
nels inside. One of them has a chest key on it which opens the chest between
the two burial caskets. Open the chest and loot the Green Stone Tablets (one
for Saturas and one for Franco), along with a Ring of the Priests in the tomb.

You can return to Edgor and tell him you got it, and he will commend your 
bravery. Bring the stone to Franco for +200 EXP. 


J.3.T.02 - Learning from Edgor
-----------------------------
Edgor can teach you how to remove bloodfly wings (100g, 5 LP), how to remove
stingers (100g, 5 LP), and how to get the secretion from the stingers. He hates
bloodflies even more than he hates Franco. 


J.3.C.7 - Senyan
----------------
The first person you'll bump into in the camp, Senyan is standing outside the
tavern. You can pick 88g off him.


J.3.Q.04 - "A Fatal Situation"
-----------------------------
Senyan will recognize your face as what's been floating around on the wanted
posters and will strike a deal with you; in short, he'll turn you over to the
camp if you don't agree to it. Agree to it, for now he'll just send you to
Esteban to talk to him about a murderer.

Once you've had your chat with Esteban and picked up "Attempted Murder", go
back Senyan, and he will give his final ultimatum: figure out who the murderer
is and let Senyan pocket the reward. Since there is no real reward for this,
and you'll need to knock-off one of Esteban's guys in order to get Emilio to
talk, say 'no' and kill him. He'll shout something to the camp, but no one will
attack you, so you're safe. If you agree to it, you can still turn around and
kill him anyway, except you'll have the quest sitting idly in your log, unable
to be finished until you kill Raven and 'complete' all the idle quests. No big
deal.


J.3.C.8 - Esteban
-----------------
Esteban is basically the 'leader' of the Lower Camp. He works jointly with
Thorus for keeping the mine supplied with diggers. So when Thorus needs someone
Esteban picks from the people in the lower camp, usually picking people who
he can extort gold from. This is ruining business for the merchants in the 
lower camp. 


J.3.Q.05 - "Attempted Murder"
----------------------------
This is the major quest of the lower camp. Go talk to Esteban and he will 
threaten you right off the bat that you'll meet a quick death to his bodyguards
if you try anything tricky with him. He will task you with finding out who was
behind the attempt on his life (his bodyguards killed the actual attacker, but
this person supposedly couldn't have thought of that himself, so Esteban thinks
someone put him up to it).

In order to get a Red Stone that will enable you to get past Thorus, you will
need to eventually kill Esteban, but play along and do his quest for extra
EXP and fun factor. He says he won't send you in to the mine to dig gold for 
him since you know nothing about it, or picked up a few tricks from Finn &
Lennar; if he were to, it's because you're helpful and he can extort you.

To do this quest, you'll have to ask around and find out who's on Esteban's
side and who's not. Snaf is the first person you should talk to, because he
can tell you stuff about nearly every person in the camp (for a price, or free
if you get him a bottle of Lou's Hammer in "Hammer Booze"). Here's what Snaf
will tell you:

Finn is pro-Esteban
Lennar doesn't appear to think at all
Senyan is pro-Esteban
Emilio 'wouldn't bring flowers to Esteban's funeral'
Fisk is against Esteban
Paul is against Esteban
Huno - Snaf doesn't know anything about him

Snaf can also tell you your chances of finding the guy; in short, if you do
something good or bad. If you tell Finn that you're working for Esteban, you
supposedly have lower chances because the guy will be more careful around you;
if you kill Senyayn, he will be more open with you since you knocked off one
of Esteban's guys. Snaf mentions that the person who wants Esteban dead is 
most definitely in the camp at the present time.

Now, it's time for you to talk to people and investigate:

Fisk: Ask him about the murder, and he will say that he doesn't know anything,
      and that he's a victim himself, getting you the quest "A Package of
      Lockpicks" (J.3.Q.10). He himself won't be able to help you much at all
      with the quest at this point. You can talk to him about Juan working for
      Esteban, and he will admit that Esteban is hurting the trade for the 
      merchants, but to keep quiet about it.

Lennar: Lennar will babble some story about Emilio having been working his butt
      off in the mine, but since the attack he's been sitting on his bum. He
      suspects Emilio wanted to replace Esteban with one of his friends so that
      he could run the businesses himself.

Emilio: Ask him about it, and he will say he doesn't know anything. Tell him
      Lennar's story, and he will simply say that Lennar is an idiot. When you
      kill Senyan, Emilio will engage you in conversation and will finally
      admit that he doesn't like Esteban, and will give you one name to go to:
      Huno. 

Finn: You can ask him, and he'll ask you why you want to know. If you tell him
      stuff about wanting to conspire to take down Esteban, he won't have any
      part of that and won't tell you anything. If you tell him Esteban wants
      the guy dead, he will realize you're on the boss's side and will tell
      you that Huno wasn't in his place at the smithy when the attack happened.
      This will establish you in the open as working for Esteban, but it won't
      matter much.

Paul: You can ask him about the murder, and he will tell you he doesn't know
      anything. He himself doesn't care much for Esteban, since he wasn't able
      to get into the mine at the start, and since then he's been stuck working
      with Huno and not in the mine. Once you've gotten Huno's name from Emilio
      or Finn, you can press him about Huno since he works for him. You'll have
      to talk to him several times, and eventually he will say that Huno has
      a bone to pick with Esteban because he's ruining business and likely
      stealing Huno's trade goods.

Logan: You can ask him, but since he was in the swamp at the time that the
      attack took place, he really doesn't know anything.

Lucia: Lucia will say that she doesn't know anything.

Huno: When you first ask Huno, he will say that he doesn't know anything. Once
      you've gotten at least two references to his name, you can tell him that
      people have been talking about him and you will get the option to either
      tell him he's going to pay for it, or that you want to team up to take
      out Esteban. Take the latter option, and you will have to prove your
      trustfulness in this matter by getting him his package of steel that
      he suspects Esteban had stolen to sell to Huno at a higher price. You 
      can agree to help him, thus getting "Huno's Steel" (J.3.Q.9) or that he
      should set you up with the guy NOW, or you will have a chat with Esteban
      about him. When you complete "Huno's Steel" or convince him to tell you
      straight away, he tells you to go to Snaf and you'll meet with the guy
      at the tavern.

Talking to Snaf will get you +500 EXP, and he will direct you upstairs to meet
up with the guy. Go upstairs and you'll run into Fisk. Talking to him, you find
out that he wants Esteban out of the way so that he can no longer ruin both the
trade business and extort gold out of his diggers of choice, which are the only
ones he lets into the mine in the first place.

You can tell him that you will turn him over to Esteban, but he will tell you
that you won't be rewarded with a Red Stone for that; he has a better plan.
You are to tell Esteban that you've done your job, and that Fisk was in fact
behind it. Esteban will send his guards to take care of Fisk and you can then
kill Esteban one-on-one; Fisk will deal with the guards. 

Go back to Esteban and tell him this; he will of course send his bodyguards
away to meet Fisk at the tavern. When you ask him for your reward for finding
the guy behind the murder, the Red Stone pass into the mine, he will not give
you one, and had never intended to give you one. He wants to keep you in the
lower camp to keep doing tasks for him. Tell him you're going to give him what
for and he will try to sick his guards on you.... which aren't there anymore.
Kill him for +300 EXP, being sure to take the 5 Red Stone Tablet off of him
(one for you, one for Saturas, and 3 for Thorus' Quest). 

Go back to Fisk and tell him this news for +100 EXP. You can tell Tom to finish
Tom's Problem (J.3.P.3). Go to Thorus to try to get into the mine and you will
pick up his quest "Three Stones - Three Diggers" (J.3.Q.11).


J.3.C.9 - Finn
--------------
Finn is standing around the main camp fire. You can pick 50g off of him.


J.3.P.04 - Mining Tips
---------------------
Besides his use in "Attempted Murder", when you ask Finn if there's anything
you should know about mining, he will give you a tip that will increase your
mining efficiency by +10%


J.3.C.10 - Lennar
-----------------
Lennar has his own small hut outside the main campfire. You can pick 100g off
of him.


J.3.P.05 - Mining Tips
---------------------
You can ask Lennar for advice on mining, and his logic will be that in him
telling you, you will be able to earn more gold, and thus he should get a share
of that extra gold. He wants 50 gold pieces up front. Give him the gold for
+10% mining skills. 


J.3.C.11 - Fortuno
------------------
Fortuno is another Sect Camp loonie like Lester and Angar. His job back in the
Swamp Camp was to distribute the daily rations of swampweed reefers to camp
members. I believe he may have also had some sort of apprenticeship with Cor
Calom, the alchemist of the camp. He will speak unintelligibly until you do
his quest "Mental Meanders" (J.3.Q.6). You can pick 25g off him.


J.3.Q.06 - "Mental Meanders"
---------------------------
Fortuno's mind is going crazy, and he needs your help. When you offer to help,
he tells you something about a 'green novice'. If you have some swampweed cigs
on you, you can offer that, which he'll smoke and say isn't what he needs.
Look in the chest next to him labled 'Fortuno's Chest' and take the recipe for
a Green Novice from it. 

Now that you have the recipe, read it so you know what is needed and to be 
able to select it when you use an alchemist's bench. You'll need two swampweed
plants and one meadow knotweed. Roll the reefer at an alchemist's bench. You
can smoke them yourself for +10 EXP, but it's not worth it. Take the Green
Novice back to Fortuno for +250 EXP.

Fortuno's mind will no longer be tormenting him, but when you ask him what he
can recall, he can't remember anything. Looks like there's still some more to
be done. Talk to Miguel, the herbalist and potion-brewer just outside the camp
in the swamp. Ask him what he knows about mind-altering potions (since he was
initially thrown in the barrier for this sort of thing) and he will provide 
you with a recipe for a Mind-Restoration potion. He warns you that it can be
fatal if ingredients are improperly used, and to be extra cautious.

You'll need two secretions from bloodfly stingers, one mana extract, one essan-
ce of healing, and one red tear pepper for the potion. You can learn how to
take the secretion from bloodfly stingers from Edgor (cost of 100g and 5 LP),
or, learn it for free from a note in the castle in the Valley of Mines in the
building that Garond is in. The red tear pepper can be bought from Zuris in
Khorinis for 100g, as well as a few other obscure vendors.

Once you've made the potion, give it to Fortuno for +250 EXP. Continue to ask
how he's doing after the potion for another +250 EXP. His memory has been 
restored, and he tells you about the fall of the barrier and how everyone went
crazy. He was taken in by Raven to help decipher runes and such, but once Raven
had gotten all he needed out of Fortuno, he slipped memory-wiping drugs into
Fortuno's appetite and thus caused him to lose his memory. Raven is apparently
trying to get into the Temple of Adanos and has desecrated the shrine of a
deceased warrior in order to gain access to the temple.

Fortuno will now buy swampweed plants from you for +10g and +100 EXP per plant.


J.3.C.12 - Snaf
---------------
Snaf was the chef for the diggers and shadows back at the Old Camp. He can 
give you information about the attempt on Esteban's life once you've picked
up "Attempted Murder". You can pick 56g off of him.


J.3.Q.07 - "Hammer Booze"
------------------------
When you ask Snaf 'what's on the menu?', he'll tell you Fire Strips in a Hammer
Sauce. Accept the quest to get Snaf some Hammer Sauce, because he already has
the Fire Strips, but lacks the ingredients for the Hammer Sauce. He'll give
you the recipe for Lou's Hammer, which is what he needs. It will require one
lab flask, two turnips, one swampweed plant, one set of swampshark teeth, and
one white rum.

The turnips can be bought from Fisk (there are a few lying around the camp 
near Fisk and upstairs above the tavern, also). You can learn how to take the
teeth from Swampsharks off Logan for 3 LP. They're quite valuable, so it may
be worthwhile if you want some spare cash. However, you can find a tooth by
itself, without having to learn the skill. To find it, go to Juan's cave in the
far East. While facing the cave, follow the wall closely as it leads away from
the cave to the right. You'll pass inbetween the wall and a large tree quite
soon. Next to a small tree stump, just past the large tree (it's right before
some old ruined pillars in a small pass between the cliffs) is a swampshark
tooth. Once you have everything, take it to an alchemist's bench and brew Lou's
Hammer.

Or, you can give the recipe to Samuel for +100 EXP at the cost of 30g. Once
drunk, Lou's Hammer will give you a permanent +1 MANA, but only once. Bring 
the Hammer back to Snaf for +150 EXP and some Fire Strips (+1 STR). He'll now
give you free information about Esteban's attacker in "Attempted Murder". Note
that you can take the recipe back from Samuel for free if you look in his inv-
entory; there's no value on the recipe, so it's no cost to get back if you 
want it.


J.3.P.06 - Lou's Stash
---------------------
There is as note by the door at the back of the Tavern which informs you that
Lou has gone missing, probably got eaten by a swampshark. Problem is, he had
the key to the storeroom. Thus, if you can find the key, you get access to the
storeroom, which has a fair amount of loot to take.

Go to Logan's camp, to the right when leaving the Bandit Camp. Continue past
his strip of land into the swamp. One of the swampsharks here is the one that
ate Lou. If you killed it already, its corpse should still be there for you
to inspect and take the key off of. If you haven't killed it already, start
killing until you find the one that has the key.

Once you have the key, return to the tavern and open the door. You can find a
lot of valuable loot, including: gold candlestick, silver chalice, silver dish,
gold chalice, and the recipe for Lou's Double Hammer.  


J.3.C.13 - Lucia
----------------
Lucia, the whore from the Red Lantern brothel at the Khorinis harbor, is now
serving booze at Snaf's tavern in the Bandit Camp at Jharkendar. You can buy
some alcohol off of her. You can pick 100g off of her.


J.3.Q.08 - "Lucia"
-----------------
This quest started quite a while ago, back in Khorinis when you rescued Elvrich
from the bandits (K.3.Q.14). Ask her if she's from Khorinis for +100 EXP and
the final completion of this quest. You can then continue to talk to her about
the Paladins and how they're chosen of Innos and his warriors. She won't be
returning to Khorinis because of the Paladins, and has no interest in Elvrich
because he's a coward; according to her, when the bandits attacked, he didn't
lift a finger to save her. You can buy a +10 DEX accessory from her if you
desire one.


J.3.T.03 - Learning from Lucia
-----------------------------
Lucia can teach you how to increase your DEXTERITY. 


J.3.C.14 - Huno
---------------
Huno was the blacksmith for the diggers and shadows back at the Old Camp. He
tells you the story of when the barrier fell, and how most people didn't survi-
ve the fall. He was rescued by Raven, and has since taken service with him, in
part as a repayment of debt for his life. You can pick 102g off of him.


J.3.P.07 - Huno's Inventory
--------------------------
Huno can sell you some weapons (though they're all fairly week), a pick-axe
if you don't already have one (which you'll need in order to get free money
once you're in the mine), and most importantly, Heavy Bandit Armor (50/50 def).
He'll charge 2100g for it, unless you've finished "A Package of Lockpicks" in
which case he'll sell the armor to you for 1400g. He's got a +10 STR accessory
that you can purchase if you desire one.


J.3.Q.09 - "Huno's Steel"
------------------------
You pick this quest up when working on "Attempted Murder" (J.3.Q.5). Once you
have two references to Huno's involvement in the attempted assassination, you
can press him about it. When you get the option to turn him over to Esteban,
or to help get rid of Esteban, choose the latter. He'll give you a chance to
prove yourself by getting his steel delivery, which he believes Esteban had
filched in order to sell back to Huno at a higher price. 

You get the clue as to who's been making off with merchants' things from Fisk
when you ask him about Esteban. At any rate, you'll have to wind up going to
Juan in the far East of the swamp in a lone cave. Talk to him and he'll tell
you to go get the money from Esteban before he'll do anything. Tell him you're
not working for Esteban and he'll attack you. You'll have to kill him at some
point to get the steel for Huno and lockpicks for Fisk, so go ahead and kill
him (be mindful that the other bandit will attack if you fight Juan). When he
is dead, loot his body and take the shipments.

Return to Huno and give him the steel for +200 EXP.


J.3.C.15 - Fisk
---------------
Fisk was a general-supply merchant back at the Old Camp, supplying weapons,
armor, tools, and ore to diggers and shadows. He's behind Esteban in the upper
right section of the camp. 


J.3.P.08 - Fisk's Inventory
--------------------------
Fisk really doesn't have much, although he has some key things that you could
need for various tasks like brewing Lou's Hammer and combat neccessities. He
has two new weapons to NotR, the Storm Cudgel and Wind Cudgel, both of which
are fairly lame because they're probably far weaker than what you have by now
and have -10% malus to your 1H/2H skill.


J.3.Q.10 - "A Package of Lockpicks"
-----------------------------------
When you ask Fisk what he knows about the attempt on Esteban's life, he will
mention him being a victim himself; someone obscondered with a package of
lockpicks that were supposed to be delivered to him. You can offer to get it
back for him. He's mentioned that Juan probably had a hand in it, so you'll
have to go find Juan to get his lockpicks.

Juan's cave is in the far East of the swamp, in a lone cave. Talk to him, and
he'll tell you to have Esteban send the money before he'll do anything. Tell
him you're not working for Esteban and he'll attack you. You'll have to kill
him to get the packages, so go ahead and finish him off. Note that the other
bandit will attack you if you fight Juan. Once Juan is dead, take the packages
off of him and return to Fisk.

You'll be rewarded +200 EXP and a discount on Heavy Bandit Armor (50/50) if 
you tell Huno about Fisk's discount, for 1400g. If you're a mage, he'll also
give you a blank runestone. 


J.3.C.16 - Stew Pot Bandit
--------------------------
Standing at the stew pot in the lower-camp, just before the stairs up to the
mines, is a nameless bandit, whom you might easily overlook due to his lack of
a name.


J.3.P.09 - Meat Stew
-------------------
If you talk to the bandit at the stew pot, he will give you some 'meat stew'
which he says puts muscle on you. When you eat it, you get +1 STR, but he only
gives you one.


J.3.T.04 - Learning from the Bandit
----------------------------------
The stew pot bandit can train your STRENGTH.


J.3.C.17 - Skinner
------------------
Skinner is sleeping in a small hut to the side of Snaf's tavern, near the stew
pot bandit. You don't have much that you can do with him, because he'll attack
you if you wake him up, as warned by the stew pot bandit if you get too close
to him.


J.3.P.10 - Betty
----------------
Skinner has the sword 'Betty', which is the strongest-damaging Dexterity-based
sword available. It requires 110 DEX and deals 130 damage, equal to the Orc
Slayer. It does 10 more damage than the Master Sword, but does not have the 
+10% bonus to 1H skills, and requires almost double the DEX, so it's not quite
as much bang for your buck as the Master Sword is. 


J.3.C.18 - Thorus
-----------------
Thorus was the leader of the Guards back at the Old Camp. You can talk to him
about the fall of the barrier and all of that. He's located at the top of the
pyramid-esque stairs leading up to the mine. He's the one who admits people in
to the mines, and he needs a red stone tablet. If you offer him any other color
he won't admit you.

The chest in his quarters is locked; the key to unlock it is on Thorus. Wait 
until after you've killed Raven and you can kill Thorus, take his key, and get
access to 250g, and 24 gold nuggets. 


J.3.Q.11 - "Three Stones - Three Diggers"
-----------------------------------------
After completing "Attempted Murder" and acquiring 5 Red Stone Tablets from
Esteban, talk to Thorus about getting in to the mines. Having killed Esteban,
Thorus will still not let you in, because you now have to take up Esteban's
duties. If you complete his job, then you'll be allowed in. 

Your task is to find 3 replacement diggers for the mine; give them a red stone
from the pile you took from Esteban to let them in. There are 5 that you can
choose from, some of which have different benefits:

Lennar: +150 EXP, +10% mining
Finn: +150 EXP, +10% mining
Logan: +150 EXP
Paul: +150 EXP, 2 lumps of Ore
Emilio: +150 EXP

Logan and Emilio obviously aren't that rewarding, but if you want to be moral,
you should return the favor to Logan to get him into the mine. Once they're in
it doesn't really matter, so just pick based on what you think will benefit
you most.

Return to Thorus once you've given out 3 Red Stone Tablets, and he'll reward
you with +100 EXP and will finally admit you into the upper district, including
the gold mine and the Temple of Adanos. 


J.3.C.19 - Gate Guard
---------------------
The nameless gate guard. He doesn't have much to say, but he's a place-holder
character for getting into the temple.


J.3.Q.12 - "Access to the Temple"
---------------------------------
Having finally gotten into the upper district of the Bandit Camp, trying to
follow Raven into the temple will only result in an abrupt end. The Gate Guard
will not allow you to go in the temple without permission from Bloodwyn, who
doesn't usually come out of the temple, except to inspect new veins of gold in
the mine (hint hint).

Once you're in the mine, you can clear out a horde of mine crawlers who have
taken over an entire section of the mine. Upon doing this, Bloodwyn will come
out to inspect the new vein. Talk to him, irritate him, and get in a fight with
him. Once he's dead, you can loot his head from his inventory.

Go back to the Gate Guard and show him Bloodwyn's head; he'll let you in to the
temple without any resistance. 

Now that you're in, follow the halls to the first intersection. At the corner,
you should see a chest, which requires Bloodwyn's Key to open. In it, is the
Armor for Raven's Guards, perhaps the strongest armor you've yet to come by,
unless you've gotten the Crawler Plate Armor. 

If you continue straight, you'll come to a tomb-esque room, loaded with Raven's
Henchmen, undead zombies with high weapon defense. You can kill them off the
same way you would kill regular zombies, just be sure to try to lure them over
one by one, or at least in smaller groups. In this room, you can find: a King's
Sorrel, Gold Dish, Silver Dish, and several potions.

If you turn right at the fork in the temple, you will come to the door that
leads further into the temple, but you will be stopped by an FMV. Raven prays
in front of the door and then steps through it, sealing it shut behind him. 

Return to Saturas and tell him this to recieve the quest "The Power of the
Guardians of the Dead" (J.1.Q.9) with Myxir and +100 EXP.


J.3.C.20 - Scatty
-----------------
Scatty was the guards' merchant back at the Old Camp. He's now continuing his
marketeering business in the mine, selling necessities for mining. You can
talk to him about Raven, and find out more about him and Bloodwyn, and he'll
mention that you remind him of some other 'inquisitive fellow' who bit-the-dust
back when the barrier fell (but of course, you're there in front of him, he
just doesn't know who you are). You can pick 90g off of him.


J.3.P.11 - Scatty's Stock
-------------------------
Scatty doesn't have much to offer, besides general supplies: potions, food,
ammunition, etc. You might need a pick-axe if you haven't yet gotten one from
many numerous other places. 


J.3.P.12 - Mining Tips
----------------------
Ask Scatty if he can give you any tips on mining, and he can add +5% to your
efficiency.


J.3.T.05 - Learning from Scatty
------------------------------
For 2 LP, Scatty can teach you another 10% efficiency in mining. You can get
up to 90% without ever having to use LP's, but if you wish to get the full 100%
then feel free to use them. It's my opinion that money is easier to come by
than LP, though. 


J.3.P.13 - A Beer for Scatty
----------------------------
While explaining what happened to Raven, Scatty will say that his throat is
really dry, but will continue to talk if you insist. After he's done with his
monologue on Raven, you can get him a 'Beer' (just regular beer, no other alco-
holic drink will do) for +500 EXP. There is actually one in the vacinity of
Scatty, near a support pillar that you can pick up and hand to him.


J.3.C.21 - Crimson
------------------
He's the gold smelter, in his own small alcove on the path down to the bottom
area.


J.3.P.14 - Gold Smelting
------------------------
Crimson can smelt the gold nuggets you acquire into gold coins. He can make
one nugget into 10 coins; while it is a special deal for you, everyone is 
special to him.


J.3.C.22 - Garaz
----------------
In a side-path from the main trail down to the lower quarters, you will find
Garaz, guarding a lone slave-worker. 


J.3.P.15 - The Crawler-Infested Vein
------------------------------------
Garaz will inform you that the trail down the shaft is infested with mine
crawlers. He has no problem with you going down there, but that if you come
back missing a few limbs, it's not like he didn't warn you. 

You've got incredible experience in the extermination business by now, so feel
free to go down and clear-out the mine crawlers. You'll get a bonus +500 EXP
once you've killed the final one. Return to Garaz and tell him you've killed
all of the mine crawlers; he'll tell you that Bloodwyn is on his way ("that's
what you wanted, right?"). He also tells you not to irritate Bloodwyn, as he
has a short temper.

Follow Bloodwyn down into the new vein and begin to talk to him. No matter what
you do, you'll wind up fighting him, so just have fun with the conversation.
Kill him and loot his body for his head and key. You can tell Garaz that you
slayed Bloodwyn for +100 EXP. You will need his head for "Access to the Temple"
(J.3.Q.12) and "Raven's Slaves" (J.3.Q.13.b). 


J.3.C.23 - Patrick
------------------
Cord's buddy patrick is the leader of the slaves from Khorinis. Most of the
others will direct you to him about trying to get them out. Patrick seems to
still have his spirit and is anxious to get out, but unsure of how to do it.


J.3.Q.13.b - "Raven's Slaves" 
-----------------------------
Patrick tells you that they've already attempted an escape: William made a run
for it, but didn't survive. Since then, they've been kind of reluctant to try
to get out. The only way they'll make an attempt is if the Slave Guard lets
them out without struggle.

Talk to the Slave Guard and he'll tell you he can't do anything without word
from Thorus and Bloodwyn. Thus, you'll have to convince them first. 

You'll first need to deal with Bloodwyn before you can talk to Thorus about
this. In order to get 'Bloodwyn's Authorization', talk to Garaz for the point
"The Crawler-Infested Vein" (J.3.P.15). Once you've dealt with Bloodwyn, go
back up to the 'courtyard' to find Thorus out waiting for you.

Thorus will question what you've been up to, having watched you systematically
kill-off each officer in the camp. He wonders who's next, him or Raven? He 
tells you how much having comradery means to him, not being able to set foot
in towns where he could get a sense of community. Tell him that you'll kill
Raven, and that Thorus can then take over the camp and make it something worth-
while. He'll then give you his word to free the slaves.

Return to the Slave Guard, now that you have Bloodwyn's head and Thorus' autho-
rization. The Slave Guard will reluctantly stand down and go grab some grub
from the chef. 

Return to Patrick and tell him they're free for +500 EXP. He says that he
knows the perfect place to go (Tom's Cave, out by Logan's area). You can find
them there until you kill Raven. This completes "The Missing People" and
"Raven's Slaves".


J.3.C.24 - Pardos
-----------------
Pardos is sitting in a corner past the Slave Guard, a portion of his HP gone.


J.3.P.16 - A Potion for Pardos *****
------------------------------
If you offer Pardos a potion, you will be rewarded ____ EXP, but be warned; if
you don't offer it to him this first time, you'll never get to offer him one
again, so if you want the EXP, be sure to do it that first time you talk to
him.


J.3.C.25 - Monty
----------------
Monty is also in an isolated corner, working on the gold veins. He tells you
to talk to Patrick, and that Pardos is looking pretty bad. 


J.3.P.17 - Mining Tips
----------------------
Monty can give you +5% on your gold-mining efficiency. 


J.3.C.26 - Stew Pot Diggers
---------------------------
There are several unnamed diggers standing around the stew pot by the chef on
the bottom level. They don't have much to say, besides about the conditions
of working in the mine. 


J.3.P.18 - Mining Tips *****
----------------------
Three of the unnamed 'Stew Pot Diggers' can give you additional skill in your
gold-mining. You can get +10%, +5%, and +5%. 



------------------------------
J.1.A.4 - The Temple of Adanos
------------------------------
The Temple of Adanos is a sequential 'dungeon' with booby traps that you'll
have to nagivate your way through. The Relics that you acquired are supposed 
to give you hints to get through them, but I found for the most part, they're
very vague, and that trial and error is the best method. 

To get into the Temple, use the tablet that Quarhodron gave you: the place will
rumble and magic 'clouds' will spill out from you as the door opens. Go through
it to enter the first chamber.

Chamber #1: 
The first chamber has four doors, with switches on the walls and falling spike
traps. Forget the entire right half of the room, and focus on the left half.
You'll want to press the buttons in this order: the one with the builders (far
left), the one with the water (far right), and the one with the sun (center).
If you press the switches in the wrong oder, the spikes will fall and kill you
instantly, so be sure to save right before attempting them.
  _____       _____       _____       _____       _____
 |     |     |     |     |     |     |     |     |     |
 |  1  |     |  x  |     |  3  |     |  x  |     |  2  |
 |_____|     |_____|     |_____|     |_____|     |_____|

A door to your right (assuming you're still looking at the switches) will open.

Chamber #2:
There are three stone sentinels in this room that you can kill. Then comes the
'hard' part of figuring out which path to choose. The correct path is the one
farthest to the right (when you're looking into the room as if you just came
out of the hallway from Chamber #1). Any other path will spring spikes on you
after you've made it halfway down it; the safe one all the way to the right 
will not do that.

Chamber #3:
This is a situation similar to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, where you
have to step on the right tiles to proceed; the wrong tiles will drop from
under you, and you'll plummet into a pungee pit. This is the one challenge that
I was able to actually find 'use' of the relic. It says that light will illumi-
nate the correct path. Well, if you cast a light spell, you'll notice the tiles
are slightly different in hue: the bad ones are slightly green, and the good
ones are slightly purple.

   __1__ __2__ __3__
  |^^^^^|^^^^^|     |   The X's mark the tiles that will fall out from under
A |     |     |     |   you if you step on them. The un-marked tiles are safe
  |_____|_____|_____|   to travel on. 
  |     |     |     |
B |     |  X  |  X  |   Grid A1 and A2 both have spike-traps that will spring
  |_____|_____|_____|   if you try to step through the archway into the next
  |     |     |     |   'room', thus you'll have to go through A3 for safety.
C |     |     |     |
  |_____|_____|_____|	^^^^^ = spikes O' death
  |     |     |     |
D |  X  |  X  |     |
  |_____|_____|_____|


Chamber #4:
As you enter the fourth chamer, you'll see the all-too-familiar spike holes.
There is a dead corpse of a Bandit to the side, which has a DEX I and 1H I
stone tablet on it. You'll also notice the ghost of Rhademes, with a sole bit
of solid stone in the center, devoid of spike-traps. 

Talk to Rhademes, and ask him how you can open the door. He'll tell you that
basically every single level on the walls will spring the trap, but they'll
also open the door. You can ask how Rhademes would know which is the 'right'
lever, and he'll say that the Sword showed him revenge, but he's since long
forgotten it. No matter what you say in response, he'll give it a try. Make
sure that you're standing on the stone platform in the middle before you give
him encouragement. He'll pull a random lever, and the spikes will spring up, 
but since he's already dead, they don't do anything to him, and since you're
standing on the platform, you're unharmed: the door is now open.

If you talk to Rhademes again, he'll tell you "If you have the strength, sink
it in the depths of the sea."

Antechamber:
There are six sentinels here that are supposed to jump to life when you try to
go through the final door, but you can of course attack them before hand and
get it over with. No puzzles here.

Final Chamber:
Make sure you're fully healed and set for combat. Once you're all set, go talk
to Raven, kneeling at the far end of the room. Raven is under the belief that
you are a servant of Innos, sent to stop him. You find out that Raven sold his
soul to Beliar and will be a general in Beliar's army. You tell Raven that you
might not be a servant of Innos, but one of Adanos, or simply working for your-
self. At this point, Raven will attack.

Raven is not that much stronger than other human opponents you'll have come by
up to this point. Perhaps the only thing makes him much of a challenge is the
fact that he has the Claw of Beliar. You'll notice that sometimes you're stuck
with a bolt of lightning for either hitting Raven or for getting hit by Raven.
That's an effect of the Claw, which deals extra damage negating your defense
values. Raven might also be a bit tougher if you rushed into everything and
aren't that high in levels, in which case you may just need to postpone your
fight and go work on that. Treat Raven just like any other human opponent,
though, and things should be ok.

Killing Raven will get you +500 EXP and an FMV in which waves of magic radiate
out from the Temple, killing off all the stone sentinels, and finally skewering
Raven's helpless body, draining all of Beliar's power from it. 

Loot Raven's body for another set of Relics, and the Claw of Beliar. You'll
probably be curious and try to equip it, but will notice that it damages a
percent of your health when you do so. Anyway, continue on out of the temple,
going back the way you came.

NOTE that for some reason in my gameplay, the door leading into the antechamber
wouldn't open again after I had killed Raven. If this happens to you, you'll
have to do some clipping to get through. Left-Strafe into the corner where the
stone door meets with the stone frame around it, and play around with the turn
keys, left and right. It may take some trial and error, but you should pop over
to the other side, and the door will the open.... You could wind up seemingly
on top of the Temple where everything's purple. If this is the case, follow 
the path around until you find the first steep ramp (it looks like you should
be unable to go up it, but you can). You should come to a 'hole' in the purple
in which you can look down into the rendered Temple halls. Drop down in this
hole, and you'll be back at Chamber #1.

With Raven now dead, your adventures in Jharkendar have just about come to an
end. You can still talk to a few people about things, however.

A talk with Thorus, letting him know Raven's dead, gives you a bit of insight
into G3 possibilities that you might be running into him again. The two of you
are now at an understanding of each other's qualities: you're a wandering guy
with no 'home' or 'ties', and Thorus is an outlaw longing for those things. He
is now going to take over the Bandit Camp and lead it as a community, rather
than a work-force.

Return to Saturas and tell him you've killed Raven, and he will give you the
information on what he and the rest of the mages are going to do, along with
+1000 EXP. He'll finally update the quest "Relief for Vatras" by sending Myxir
in to town. You can talk to him about the Claw in "The Claw of Beliar" and he
will tell you more about what you can do with it. According to Saturas, you are
the Preserver of Balance, which is odd because you're also the Chosen of Innos.
Interesting that you'd seem to play the role of two gods. 

At any rate, the water mages are going to stay behind and try to rebuild the
city to what it once was, in hopes of restoring the lost civilization and
finding out even more about the ancient culture. 

You can tell Greg that you've killed Raven for +1000 EXP and +500g; he is very
pleased that that scum-bag finally bit the dust, and hopes that it will be a 
step towards ending the strife between the pirates and the bandits. 



J.1.A.5 - Exploring Jharkendar

J.5.A.1 - The Ruins
-------------------
First off, you'll find some new monsters in this area: the Mantis, namely. You
can take its head and sell it for cash. Other than that, check around every 
nook and cranny for useful stuff like potions, digging sites, etc. There are
also some 'new' mobs to G2 (though present in G1) that you can run into, such
as the Razor.

Most noteworthy is William's corpse, located in a small hut on the eastern
side. He carries a note on him, which doesn't make much sense until after you
have freed the slaves -- he tried to escape, and was recieving outside help
from someone, but apparently didn't make it.


J.5.A.2 - The Valley
--------------------
In the valley you will find a few Orcs and a few Trolls, but mostly it's just
Grassland Scavengers, Goblins, and Snappers. There are a few other oddballs
like the Swamp Golem, a few Mantises, but they're limited. The Valley is a lush
green region with serpentine paths, easy to step off a cliff and die. Be very
careful.

J.5.C.1 - Hermit
----------------
The Hermit moved to Jharkendar to get away from people. He says that he has to
put up with the occasional Orc every now and then, but that doesn't bother him.
He's perturbed by your presence. He mentions that he reads Stone Tablets for
leisurely entertainment and that he's figured out what most of the symbols
mean.


J.5.P.1 - Clothes for the Hermit
--------------------------------
He took nothing with him to Jharkendar, and have made everything he has off of
hunting. However, he knows nothing about sewing, and thus begs you to provide
him with some clothes. You can give him any armor that you don't want anymore.
It's my personal preferance to give him some of the Citizen's Clothes that I
found in the chest behind Matteo's store.

If you give him clothes, he then wears it. He rewards +200 EXP, an Old Stone
Tablet, and a DEX III tablet. You can also loot shadowbeast trophies from his
house -- he doesn't seem to mind.


J.5.T.1 - Learning from the Hermit
----------------------------------
The Hermit can teach you how to read the Ancient Language of the Builders:

	Language of the Peasants:  5 LP (read lvl I tablets)
	Language of the Warriors: 10 LP (read lvl II tablets)
	Language of the Priests:  15 LP (read lvl III tablets)


J.5.I.1 - The Magic Bow
-----------------------
On a ledge northeast of the Temple of the Undead in the SE region of the Valley
you will be tantilized by a sparkly blue object -- the Magic Bow (50/100). 
Problem is, there's a huge canyon between you and the ledge. It can easily be
crossed with Acrobatics, but if you don't have it, here's the best solution:

Use a Transform into Lurker Scroll to jump over and back. Be sure to have 2, so
that you have one for the return trip. Or, you can go to the ledge vertically
above the broken bridge (with the goblin hut), and jump from there. It will
take some trial and error, but if you jump from the pointed edge toward the
bridge, you can eventually land. 

In this area, you can find some pretty cool stuff, along with some Stone Senti-
nel guardians. 


J.5.A.3 - The Canyon
--------------------
The Canyon is mostly overrun by Razors and Chompers (both previously in G1). 
There is an occasional Blood hound, and the Orc Camp outside the Library of 
the Scholars. Oh, and a few Desert Rats.

Other than that, there's not much. You can explore in a few mineshafts and get
some digging done. They're generally filled with minecrawlers. 

The tunnel that links the Canyon and the Swamp is pretty cool, loaded to the
teeth with minecrawlers and minecrawler warriors. Loots of good loot in there.


J.5.A.4 - The Swamp
-------------------
The Swamp is an absolute mess to try to explore because everything is so dark
and monotonous and everything looks the same and blarg. It's got Gas Drones,
Zombies, Swampsharks, Swamp Rats, and Swamp Golems, mostly. There's a TON of
herbs to be obtained.


J.5.C.2 - Juan
--------------
Juan is in a cave as far east as you can possibly go in the Swamp. He's out
there all by his lonesome with some unnamed Bandit. You'll probably get into
a fight with him if you talk to him, but you'll have to eventually. He doesn't
really serve much purpose other than for the quests for Huno and Fisk.


J.5.I.X - The Ladder Camp Site
------------------------------
Just south of the Swamp Teleporter Stone you will find a ladder which leads up
a tree. I generally leave the exploring and looting up to the player to find
(I feel it's more thrilling for you to always find new things, not to mention
it's too much to have to document >.<), but I feel the need to point this one
out: It's the only ladder you'll find in Gothic 2. They were abundant in G1,
and as Garaz says, "It's a wonder, but no one's really used ladders since the
fall of the barrier,". I thought it was amusing.

Anyway, you can climb up the ladder(s) to a small camping site, complete with
nice loot and a digging site.

   K.2.P.01 - The Missing People
   K.2.P.02 - Relief for Vatras
   K.2.Q.01 - "The Dragon Hunt"
   K.2.P.03 - Escape with Diego
   K.2.P.04 - Return to Jharkendar
   K.2.P.05 - The Undead Dragon


K.2.P.01 - The Missing People 
----------------------------
You can go back to everyone who reported missing a worker or friend and talk to
them about things. Mostly, it's just a quick 'so how are things?', but you do 
get some reward from it. 

Lares: +100 EXP
Akil: +100 EXP
Garvel: +100 EXP
Cord: +100 EXP
Bengar: +100 EXP
Vatras: +3 MANA (perhaps more, didn't document)
Farim: Nothing - William is dead. Farim goes to the pub to drink-up William's
       share of the last catch in mourning; 'it's what he'd have wanted'.


K.2.P.02 - Relief for Vatras
---------------------------
You can tell Vatras about his relief for +100 EXP, but of course he'll still
stay at the courtyard preaching. You can also talk to Myxir, kneeling in front
of the large statue in the small shrine behind Vatras for +100 EXP. He mentions
some stuff about you being the Preserver and thanking you for your effort, and
that he'll remain in the city to aid Vatras.


K.2.Q.01 - "The Dragon Hunt"
---------------------------
There really aren't that many changed made to the game once you're done with
Jharkendar, besides one noticable point: the dragons are harder. Now their HP
regenerates at an astonishingly fast rate, which makes most of the old tactics
for killing them ineffective. Thus, you'll have to explore new methods of
slaying these beasts. 

The old strategies for fighting dragons no longer work; fighting until your
health is low, then running away and taking some health potions; getting the
dragon into 'flight mode' to get a hit or two in each time it lands; and more
are now void, since the dragons' HP regenerates during that time. Even on my
beefed-up Mercenary/Dragon Hunter, I could scarecely put out enough damage
with my weapons to kill the dragon (the knock-back of the 'fire sweep' attack
is brutal -- you're down on the ground, and their HP regenerates). My fire
magician could not even damage the dragons with my Circle 4 spells.

The easiest answer to killing the dragons, is scrolls. The best ones that I
have come by for killing dragons are: summon stone golem, summon demon, and
fire storm. 

On the easier dragons (stone/fire), you can use the golem scrolls to use the
golem simply as a decoy, in order for you to get around to the side of the
dragon to hit at it constantly. The golem will also help negate the regen
effects in the aspect of there being another being attacking the dragon with
you. The demon is a lot more effective than the golem because it simply does
so much more damage, and a noticable amount. The demon could almost take down
a dragon on its own. However, there are fewer demon scrolls, and they are more
expensive to purchase. Rain of Fire, simply put, destroys dragons. It can one-
hit the easier dragons, but may require two to kill the tougher ones. Rain of
Fire scrolls are especially hard to come by, so if you're playing as a mage, 
be sure to save one in order to make the rune. 

Note that you should save before each dragon battle and attempt to finish it
with only using one summon scroll, in order to conserve more for later. Towards
the end of the game you will likely need to summon up to two demons, but early
on it can easily be done with just one, even if you get a fluke and it dies.

Good people to buy scrolls fromare in the Monestary, Karras and Gorax in 
particular. There are various other merchants that sell magic scrolls, but as
I recall only these two have the good ones that you'll need. 

> Suggested Dragon-Slaying Methods:

	Swamp Dragon: Cipher & Rod
	Stone Dragon: Summon Golem
	Fire Dragon: Summon Golem
	Ice Dragon: Demon / Rain of Fire
	Fire Dragon (Irdorath): Demon / Rain of Fire

It'd be wise to buy every Summon Demon / Fire Rain / Ice Wave or other such
powerful scrolls that you can find, so that once you're on Irdorath you have
a full arsenal of options.


K.2.P.03 - Escape with Diego
---------------------------
In Chapter 2, when you are collecting the information on the ore for Garond,
you run into Diego in his old spot. However, you now have the option of going
with him back across the pass. Whenever you're ready, let him know, and the
two of you will set out for the mine.

Diego doesn't want to go anywhere near the castle, thus you'll have to go up
the back route, around the western area, through the northwestern ice area, 
and across the northern area. There will be plenty of orcs, but Diego should
be able to handle them (be sure to save often in case he dies). Give him health
potions whenever his health is low.

Once you're at the Pass, you're rewarded +500 EXP, and Diego will stay put 
until you've crossed the Pass, where he will then be found in Khorinis city.


K.2.P.05 - Return to Jharkendar
------------------------------
In Chapter 4, more mobs are placed in Jharkendar, most noticable are the prese-
nce of an abundancy of Dragon Snappers and a hefty handful of Trolls. The old
mob population of Jharkendar from earlier will be entirely different in most
cases, so expect to see much stronger mobs everywhere. 

At any rate, it's a good chance to get a few extra levels and loot from sheer
hunting. Give it another go if you like exp and LP's.


K.2.P.06 - The Undead Dragon
---------------------------
NOTE: The sub-boss Black Magician just before the Undead Dragon uses Cry of the
Dead (Beliar rune) which deals 666 damage, and he doesn't have to chug mana
potions to cast it again, so be very careful when fighting him. Run behind a
pillar to take potions if you need to -- move around a lot so it's harder for
him to hit you with the spell (it's got a wanky cast path, so there's still a
chance it can hit you if you simply side-step).

Fighting the Undead Dragon at the end of Chapter 6 is a lot like the previous
five that you've encountered, with a few differences (besides his exponentially
increased HP): Destroy Undead and the Claw of Beliar do not work on it. In fact
if you use the Claw on the Undead Dragon, the damage will be reflected back at
you. Thus, you'll have to revert back to your old STR/DEX-based weapon (either
sword or ranged), and don't forget -- summon scrolls are your friend. Also 
note that Shrink Monster does not affect it. 

If you have plenty, spam Fire Rain scrolls before summoning the Demon (the Rain
will kill the demon if it's summoned, and the Fire Rain rune takes a whopping
150 mana, which means you'll probably only be able to cast it 2 or 3 times
before having to chug some mana potions). You can also use the Ice Wave scrolls
to freeze the dragon in place, then summon the Demon, and use Breath of Death
or Holy Missile or your sword.

THE STORY:
After the fall of the barrier, Raven took whatever survivors he could find and
moved into Khorinis, searching for more followers and forced hands. After 
gathering a sizable crew, he began to barter with the local pirates -- they
took them on their ship to the lands of Jharkendar, where Raven set his eyes
on an ancient artifact. 

The bandits, led by Raven, left the pirates and moved into the swamp. There,
he used his followers to excavate the Temple of Adanos and the tomb of a mighty
phantasm. He continued to trade with the pirates until the excavation was
complete.

Once this was finished, he turned his slaves over to Bloodwyn, who put them to
work in a gold mine. Once they had a secure set of income, they broke ties 
with the pirates, even declaring war on any pirate that set foot near the
bandits' camp. 

Meanwhile, the hero, dazed from his improsnment and short-term coma in the
temple of the Sleeper, returned to Khorinis under Xardas' magic, set to work
to destroy the new armies of evil invading the Valley of Mines. Xardas mentions
the turbulence in the Northeast, and the hero quickly gets involved with the
order of the Circle of Water, whom he had decieved in his time in the Colony.
He also gets involved with some shady pirates.

He encounters stone guardians when activating stone circles to acquire pieces
of a key to the portal, which is believed to lead to the ancient valley of a
long lost culture. Once he obtains all the pieces, he returns to the Water 
Mages, who fix the key, and send the hero through the portal.

He arrives in Jharkendar several days after the Water Mages get there. He is
tasked with stopping Raven from getting into the Temple of Adanos, which later
is found to hold the Claw of Beliar, the divine weapon of Beliar; that is 
what Raven seeks. The hero joins forces with the pirates and sneaks into the
bandit camp, killing key members as he moves up the ranks until he finally
gets into the temple, freeing the slaves of Khorinis in the process. 

The temple doors are sealed, however, and he cannot enter them. He then goes
to the tomb of Quarhodron, leader of the ancient warrior caste, and gets the
password from him to open the doors. Returning to the bandit camp, the hero
enters the Temple, chasing after Raven through booby traps and puzzles, until
the final showdown, in which he defeats Raven and takes the Claw of Beliar.

Thorus, second-in-command of the bandits, takes over the bandit camp, hoping to
turn it into a cooperative community, a shelter for outcasts and criminals.
The hero, is choiced with either destroying the Claw, or using it in the name
of Adanos (or Innos, for that matter), against Beliar. The turbulence in the
valley now resolved, the Water Mages stay there in hopes of rebuilding the
long lost city. 




LIBRARY OF THE SCHOLARS:
You can read lecterns at the Library which explain the story behind Jharkendar.
It's actually briefly summed up on the Old Stone Tablets. Anywhere, here's a
simplified version of the story from the Library:

	Quarhodron, leader of the warriors, wielded a powerful sword. 
	For some reason he is impeached, and the warriors chose his
	son, Rhademes to succeed Quarhodron. 

	The sword overcame Rhademes' weakness and had him seek to 
	kill the guardians of the dead to thwart their ancestral
	communication. War broke out, and the Healers tried to seal
	the valley.

	Quarhodron, Khardimon, and a scholar met to devise a plan to
	stop Rhademes. Quarhodron and Khardimon think that their 
	combined power can overtake Rhademes, but the scholar thinks
	it will be futile, and comes up with a plan. Quarhodron went
	to the temple, called Rhademes there, who, enraged by the sword,
	stormed the temple. Quarhodron sealed Rhademes and the sword in
	the temple for all eternity.

	Adanos was unhappy. The Healers made an attempt at sealing the
	portal, but it was unknown to the scholars if they succeeded. 
	Adanos kills the warriors, Quarhodron's heart breaks. Priests
	hope for a rebirth of Jharkendar, but the scholars know it is
	doomed.

	Rhademes remains sealed in the temple, but the sword's influence
	grew too strong; the killings still happened. Adanos flooded
	Jharkendar to stop the sword. Only the central temples were able
	to survive the flood. The few survivors didn't have the strength
	to rebuild the city.

 [A.2.5] - Claw of Beliar
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Claw of Beliar (as used by Mercenaries/Dragon Hunters and Militia/Paladins)
is a very interesting weapon. When you first acquire it from Raven, it is not
even equipable, and in fact damages your health when you try to wear it. In
order to wield it, you have to pray at a Shrine of Beliar and consecrate it.
The Claw essentially gets stronger as you get higher in levels. 

Whether the Claw is a 1H or a 2H weapon depends on which type of weapon you
are more efficient with. If your 1H is at 80% and your 2H is at 30% when you
consecrate it, the Claw will become a 1H weapon. If you were to then train your
2H up to 85%, leaving your 1H at 80%, the next time you upgrade it, the Claw
will become a 2H weapon. Thus, to convert it from one type to the other requi-
res increasing the desired weapon-type efficiency beyond the weapon-efficiency
of the current leading type. 

Every two levels, starting at level 11, you can pray at a Shrine of Beliar and
increase the Claw's damage by 1, and its chance to strike with extra damage by
2. The first "level" is technically at any level under lvl 11 when you first
consecrate it, 11 being the first chance to 'upgrade' it. 

If you were to get the Claw after level 11, when you choose to 'upgrade it', it
will turn into the equivilent of your level. So if you don't get it or don't
upgrade it until you're lvl 41, you will have the same effect as a lvl 41 Claw.

The catch: it costs a permanent 5-point deduction from your hitpoints. This 
means it will cost a total of -100 hitpoints to upgrade the Claw to its max
potential. 

The extra damage that it can give to enemies is a set 100 damage to the enemy's
health, regardless of armor values. This extra damage seems to have some form
of 'Area of Effect', this meaning that if you're attacking one enemy, and there
is a second or third near the enemy you're attacking, the extra damage spark
can wind up hitting them as well. If the enemy is blocking and you keep attack-
ing (even against the block), the extra damage spark will still have a chance
to land and hit it. You'll know the extra damage has hit because it will give
the animation of the "Lightning" spell striking the enemy.

The Claw of Beliar isn't definitively the 'best' weapon in the game, mostly
because of it's cost to upgrade and the fact that it has a low base-damage.
The 1H version is 50 points lower than the strongest 1H sword, and the 2H
version is 80 points lower than the strongest 2H sword. The 1H Claw has more
bang for its buck because it can hold its own in damage when compared to the
Ore Dragon Slayer (160 damage); the 2H Claw cannot hold its own versus the 
Berserker's Axe (200 damage) in pure damage.

	For calculation purposes, you have 100% 1H and 100% 2H. This will
	compare the damage out-put of the 1H Claw versus the strongest base-
	damaging 1H sword, and the 2H Claw versus the strongest 2H axe. Note
	that the chance of the extra damage is 50%, so 1/2 of every hit will
	do an extra 100 damage. 

	In 4 hits, the following damage occurs:
	
	Ore Dragon Slayer: 160     1H Claw: 210
			   160		    210
			   160              110
			   160              110
			   ---              ---
			   640              640
	Now when you consider that the extra damage of the Claw is unaffected
	by armor values, we can assume that versus humans, shadow lords, orcs,
	lizardmen, and other armor-wearing creatures, that the Claw will do
	more damage. The fact that the extra damage is AoE and strikes through
	a blocking opponent on chance, pushes the Claw well beyond the Ore
	Dragon Slayer.

	In 4 hits, the follow damage occurs:
	
	Berserker's Axe: 200	 2H Claw: 220
			 200		  220
			 200		  120
			 200		  120
                         ---              ---
			 800              680
	The Berserker's Axe gives more reliable damage than the 2H claw. The
	fact that the damage is unaffected by armor values, has an area of
	effect, and hits through a blocking opponent on chance, perhaps only
	brings it up equivilant to the Berserker's Axe in 'bang value'. But,
	since the extra damage is only a 50% chance, it's not reliable.

Thus, the Claw is a much better 1H sword than it is a 2H sword. However, this
isn't to say you shouldn't use it as a 2H. The fact that it has no STR require-
ment will save you tons of LP to invest into other fields (especially consider-
ing the min.STR required for the strongest 2H is a whopping 170). I imagine
you likely will have a STR+10 amulet, two STR+5 rings, and a STR+10 belt in
order to use stronger weapons earlier on; in which case, you can remove those
accessories and equip defensive accessories (my personal favorite, the Warrior
Jewelry set and a Combination belt) to be a walking tank. 

Not to mention, the Claw just looks so cool and is a new feature to play 
through the rest of the game with. It might just be worth it no matter what
for the thrill factor of having the new toy to dink around with. 


PROS: Area of Effect damage can hit multiple enemies; the extra damage can hit
      through a blocking target; no minimum STR or DEX requirement to wield;
      looks super-cool.
CONS: Costs -100 HP to fully maximize the stats; lower base damage than other
      weapons

 [A.3.7] - Claw of Beliar
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When playing a mage, the Claw can assume various forms, which you can upgrade
to each time you learn a new Circle. In various cases you get two spells for
a circle, which gives you a bit more choice in your pickings. Unlike the Claw
as a sword, however, it only costs -25 HP to fully upgrade. It costs -5 HP to
upgrade to the next circle, but does not have any Circle 6 spells, thus it 
takes -25 HP. In my observation, the Claw runes are generally lame, as you can
get much better MP:damage ratio spells.

Circle:   HP/Total HP:    Spells:
Circle 1:   -5/-5 HP        Root Snare
Circle 2:  -5/-10 HP        Steal Energy
Circle 3:  -5/-15 HP        Beliar's Wrath, Create Guardian
Circle 4:  -5/-20 HP        Insect Swarm, Create Zombie
Circle 5:  -5/-25 HP        Cry of the Dead
   
You can only carry one Beliar Rune at a time, and must pray at a Shrine of
Beliar in order to exchange it for another one. It does not cost any extra HP
reduction to do so.

[A.4.2.4] - Searching Will-o-the-Wisp
-------------------------------------
Riordian teaches you how to train your Will-o-the-Wisp to find certain things.
In my personal opinion, it isn't worth it, because you have to be pretty close
to the thing(s) for it to notify you of its presence, and in general just isn't
worth the time and effort for the reward you get. However, you can if you want
to.

 [A.4.4] - Praying at Shrines
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shrine of Innos
---------------
You can pray at a Shrine of Innos once a day and recieve bonuses for donating
100g. You are limited to 10 bonuses for each stat increase (you can get 10 +1
STR, 10 +1 DEX, for example), any more than that and there is no reward.

Possible Rewards: +1 STR, +1 DEX, +4 HP, +2 MP

There seems to be an influence of what you get based on your guild and/or which
ever stat you have more/less of (DEX versus STR), however I am not sure of the
exact probabilty and formula. As a mage you get Mana bonuses primarily. Merc
gets HP and STR, Paladins get double bonuses for praying. That being said, you
just need to find out for yourself.

If you know more about the Shrines, please e-mail me with what you know. 


Shrine of Beliar 
----------------
You can pray at a Shrine of Beliar once a day and recieve gold for donating
permanent reductions of your HP and MP.

-1 HP:  +50g
-2 HP: +250g
-3 HP: +500g
-1 MP: +500g

After you do it enough, you will no longer recieve the gold rewards, and Beliar
will simply "thank you for your donation". After some time it will come back,
but at half the reward rate. It's great for some quick cash early on, but gold
later on becomes a piece of cake to come by.

You need to pray at Shrines of Beliar in order to upgrade the Claw of Beliar
(see [A.2.5] Paladin/Merc, [A.3.7] Mage).
