      FAQ/Walkthrough   \   1. Introduction
      PQUINTRO           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    Puzzle Quest:  Challenge of the Warlords is a game that combines elements of 
    puzzle games and RPGs.  You play as one of four different classes as you 
    travel through a world in an attempt to discover and defeat a great evil.  
    The puzzle elements of the game play a lot like the puzzle game Bejeweled.  
    The RPG elements mainly consist of attacking, spell casting, leveling your 
    character, and equipping items and weapons.

      PQUBASIC           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    The main parts of Puzzle Quest:  Challenge of the Warlords involves battling 
    enemies using the puzzle board on the bottom screen of the DS.  Both you and 
    your opponent will share the puzzle board and alternate turns matching gems 
    on the bottom screen.  This alternation of turns on the puzzle board means 
    that you must think differently for this game than most other puzzle games.  
    In most other puzzle games, you can set yourself up for higher combos and 
    scores.  However, odds are, your opponent will be taking the turn right after 
    you and therefore, anything you leave on the board will be taken by your 
    opponent.  This means that you must think differently with this puzzle game 
    than you must for other puzzle games.
    
    This section of the guide will tell you the controls of the game, the basics 
    of the game, and some tips and strategies I personally use for this game.

      FAQ/Walkthrough   \   2b. Battle Grid
      PQUBABAT           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    The Battle Grid is the main part of the game.  Just about every quest 
    involves a battle and even then, there are also random battles on the World 
    Map.  When you run into or are set up to fight an enemy, you will be taken to 
    the battle grid.  The top screen has the statistics of both you and your 
    enemy.  If you press the L or R button, that screen will go down to the 
    bottom screen, where you can tap on you or your enemy to see the stats and 
    tap on your or your opponent's equipment to see what they do.  The bottom 
    screen contains an 8x8 puzzle grid and the list of spells for both you and 
    your opponent.
    
    
    -------------------------
    Basics of the Battle Grid 
    -------------------------
    
    The battle grid contains various "Gems", which is what you need to match.  
    The Gems that the board can contain and what they do when you match them are 
    as follows:
    
    Blue, Green, Red, and Yellow Gems:  Give you Mana of the color you match.
    Purple Stars:  Gives you experience.
    Gold Coins:  Gives you gold.
    Skulls:  Deals damage to your opponent.
    +5 Skulls (Skulls with red outlines):  Deals a lot of damage to your
       opponents while eliminating all gems around the +5 Skull.
    Wild Cards:  When matched with the colored gems, they multiply the amount of
       Mana you obtain by the modifier that is on the Wild Card.  Wild Cards can
       be matched with any color gems and can be used to replace a gem in a
       three, four, or five of a kind.
    
    To match a gem, simply tap on the gem you want to move and then tap on an 
    adjacent non-diagonal gem to the gem you have tapped.  Both gems will switch 
    places.  One of the gems you move must match up with other gems to form a 
    three of a kind (or higher) in a horizontal or vertical row.  If it does not, 
    you will have performed an illegal move, which will deal 5 damage to you, 
    move the gems back to their original spot, and cause you to lose your turn.  
    If the move is not an illegal move, then the gems that are matched will be 
    removed, the gems above the removed gems will cascade down, and new gems will 
    appear from the top.  If the gems that are cascading down create matches, 
    those gems will be removed.
    
    If you create a line of four gems that match, you will get credit for a four 
    of a kind.  A four of a kind allows you to take another turn.  If you create 
    a five of a kind, you will not only take another turn, but also create a Wild 
    Card in the center of the five of a kind.
    
    When you match colored gems, you obtain Mana of that color.  Mana is 
    important because you can cast spells with your Mana.  The spells you can 
    cast are left of the Battle Grid.  These spells will show you what Mana you 
    need in order to cast that spell.  Each spell has a different effect.  You 
    can know about these effects by tapping the Help button at the bottom of the 
    spell list and then tapping on the spell you want to know about.  Spells can 
    manipulate the stats of you and your opponent, affect the Battle Grid, deal 
    damage, inflict status effects on your opponent, and more.
    
    
    ------------------
    Statistical Skills 
    ------------------
    
    There are seven statistical categories for you and your opponents.  These 
    statistical categories affect everything in battle.  When you level up, you 
    get four skill points to raise a statistical category.  Stats can go as high 
    as 255 (it resets to 0 if you go higher).  Generally speaking, you want to 
    focus on one or two statistical category rather than spreading your points 
    out evenly throughout all of them.  In general, you want to level up Earth 
    and Air Masteries for Druids, Battle and Morale for Knights, and Fire Mastery 
    for both Warriors and Wizards.  Here is what each statistical category does:
    
    Earth Mastery:  Increases the amount of Mana you gain for matching Green
       Gems, increases the chance of taking an extra turn for matching Green
       Mana, and increases the chance of creating a Wild Card for matching Green
       Mana.
    
    Fire Mastery:  Increases the amount of Mana you gain for matching Red Gems,
       increases the chance of taking an extra turn for matching Red Mana, and
       increases the chance of creating a Wild Card for matching Red Mana.
    
    Air Mastery:  Increases the amount of Mana you gain for matching Yellow Gems,
       increases the chance of taking an extra turn for matching Yellow Mana, and
       increases the chance of creating a Wild Card for matching Yellow Mana.
    
    Water Mastery:  Increases the amount of Mana you gain for matching Blue Gems,
       increases the chance of taking an extra turn for matching Blue Mana, and
       increases the chance of creating a Wild Card for matching Blue Mana.
    
    Battle:  Increases the amount of damage you deal when matching Skulls,
       increases the chance of taking an extra turn for matching Skulls, and
       increases the chance of creating a Wild Card for matching Skulls.
    
    Cunning:  Increases the effect that Wild Cards have on other gems, increases
       the amount of money you gain for matching Gold Coins, increases the chance
       of taking an extra turn for matching Gold Coins, and increases the chance
       of creating a Wild Card for matching Gold Coins.  Also, at the start of
       battle, the person with the highest Cunning goes first.
    
    Morale:  Increases your Life Points, increases the chance of taking an extra
       turn for matching Purple Stars, increases the chance of creating a Wild
       Card for matching Purple Stars, and increases your spell resistances.

      FAQ/Walkthrough   \   2c. General Tips
      PQUBAGEN           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    ----------
    Randomness
    ----------
    
    The first thing you should know about this game is that this game hates you.  
    I don't mean that the game is designed to go against you.  I mean the game 
    hates you.  The designers of this game created the first artificial 
    intelligence system designed to mimic the actual emotion of hate.  When you 
    are sleeping, the game is plotting your downfall with all of your other 
    electronics.  In all seriousness, you will constantly find yourself getting 
    frustrated with the random nature of the game.  Many times, you will find 
    yourself crying foul and cheating when the game drops a +5 Skull in perfect 
    position for your opponent.  Granted, the randomness will also help you every 
    once in a while, but you will swear that the game cheats for your enemy more 
    than it does for you.  There really isn't much you can do about this aspect 
    of the game.  After all, this is how randomness works.
    
    
    ------
    Spells
    ------
    
    Regular attacks are fine and dandy, but you will find yourself relying on 
    your spells do deal the bulk of the damage.  Typically, you do not want to 
    leave damage on the board for your opponent to deal to you.  However, if you 
    need one more Mana to unleash a massive Deathbringer or to set up one of your 
    loops, it might be better to match up Mana to deal more damage in the future.
    
    
    -----------
    Extra Turns
    -----------
    
    Normally, the first thing you want to look for is any four and five of a 
    kinds.  This way, you can cause more of a chance to set up a cascade.  
    Granted, there are exceptions to the rule, such as needing a certain type of 
    Mana to set up your spells or needing just one more damage to finish off your 
    opponent, but generally speaking, you can't go wrong with taking an extra 
    turn.

      FAQ/Walkthrough   \   2d. Map and Information Database Links
      PQUBAMAP           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    Zaraf and eishin from the GameFAQs Message Boards have created a really 
    helpful and easy to use map of the game.  It is very detailed and looks 
    really good.  I highly suggest using this map while you are playing the game, 
    as it is not only a map, but has lots of good information on it.  The link to 
    the map is this:
    
    http://www.infinite-interactive.com/puzzlequest/map/
    
    Also, Zaraf has also provided me with another link, this time to a very easy 
    to use database that has information on spells, resistances, items, and much 
    more.  This database is on fluxcapacitor66 website, which is as follows:
    
    http://www.onewhowaits.com/puzzlequest/runes.html
    
    Finally, there is a very good FAQ on Runes and very easy to use Monster 
    Capture maps made by Zaraf on the GameFAQs FAQs & Guides section.  These are 
    both excellent and very easy to use.
    
    Again, a big thank you to Zaraf, eishin, and fluxcapacitor66 for providing 
    this information for the general public.

      FAQ/Walkthrough   \   3. Classes
      PQUCLASS           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    There are four classes in Puzzle Quest, each with their own special set of 
    spells and skills.  Also, each class levels up statistics differently.  
    Generally speaking, Druids focus on messing with the board and your opponent, 
    Knights focus on manipulating Purple Stars, and both the Warrior and the 
    Wizard specialize in dealing direct damage.
    
    Note:  I have only played the Warrior and the Wizard.  I have not played the
       Druid or the Knight yet, although I do plan on playing the Knight my next
       playthrough.  I can really only offer insight on how to play the Warrior
       and the Wizard, although both are pretty straight forward to begin with.
       I accidentally deleted my Wizard before listing all of their spells, so I
       will have to eventually play through them again...eventually...

      PQSTORY            \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    Story Mode is the main part of the game.  It is where you take one of your 
    characters and level him or her up while making your way through the world.  
    During your journeys, you will have to complete many, many quests.  In fact, 
    the game is entirely quest driven, which means there will not be very many 
    times that you will not be on a quest.
    
    There are two types of quests in this game.  There are Story Quests and Side 
    Quests.  The Story Mode Walkthrough only goes through the Story Quests.  The 
    Side Quests are described in later sections.
    
    Also, this section is divided into four chapters.  While the chapters are not 
    really defined in the game, there are times when you will complete a Story 
    Quest and you will receive a cut scene describing the game.  I have used 
    these to separate the chapters.

     Your father, Sir Albion, apparently needs you.  Since the Queen respects
     your father, she grants your leave of absence.  You simply need to go to
     Siria and speak with your father.  Even though a couple of places open up,
     you cannot do anything anywhere, so just head straight for Siria.  When you
     speak with your father, he will provide you with a Broken Shield that was a

     After speaking with the Queen about your grandfather, it's time to learn how
     to fight.  Your first opponent will be a Practice Dummy.  The Practice Dummy
     will never take a turn and thus, will never fight back, so if you manage to
     lose this battle, I highly suggest you return your game and pick out a
     different one.  Once you have completed this battle, your quest is complete.
    
     Reward:  +1 Experience
    
     Special Quest Notes:  Can be repeated until The Missive Quest is completed.

     of reports about the Undead.  To prepare you for the coming battles, you are
     told to work hard and master combat.  Your opponent will be a Young Knight.
     Since this is the first battle, the AI is a little forgiving.  Not extremely
     forgiving, but just a little bit.  Again, once you have completed this
     battle, your quest is complete.
    
     Reward:  +1 Experience
    
     Special Quest Notes:  Can be repeated until The Missive Quest is completed.

     Story Quest:  The Missive
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  A sealed message must be delivered to Sir Albion in Siria.  This is

     The Queen needs you to deliver a message to you father.  Of course, the
     Queen is worried that the message will be intercepted, so she decides to
     send it out with someone unexpected.  You must take the message out to
     Siria.  Of course, as soon as you get there, you get jumped by a Thief.  So
     much for unexpected.  The Thief will probably steal some of your gold, but
     it shouldn't be that much.  Watch out for his Sneak Attack because it does
     damage and allows him to still take his turn. When the thief is defeated,
     you can then deliver the message to your father.  He will tell you some of
     what has been going on.  Apparently, some guy name Bane has a cult that has
     been causing trouble.  Anyways, you get a Longsword from your father, which
     is a decent weapon for now.
    
     Reward:  +20 Experience, Longsword

     Story Quest:  The Missive Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    When you return back to Bartonia, you will see that you are now able to 
    perform Side Quests.  Side Quests are quests that do not pertain to the main 
    storyline, but should be completed so that you can gain experience, gold, 
    items, and companions.  While Side Quests are not required, they can help add 
    flavor to the main storyline and depth to the world that has been created.  
    All the Side Quests are listed in "Side Quests" section.  You should probably 
    go through all of the Side Quests you can for now, although the Bats in the 
    Belfry quest can be tough at lower levels, since the enemy you would be 
    facing can steal your health to heal himself.  Either way, once you have 
    completed all the Side Quests you want, it is time to move on to the next 
    Story Quest.

     Crypt is west of Theira, so head over there and face off with the Skeleton.

     the Ruins, you will see Darkhunter is surrounded by Orcs and needs some
     help.  Time to go and rescue him.  This Orc carries a Great Axe and is
     stronger than most Orcs.  Because it has the Great Axe, if he deals damage
     to you, odds are, he will probably take another turn.  Normally, you don't
     want to leave damage on the board if at all possible, unless you really need
     the Mana more.  However, against an opponent using a Great Axe, it's even
     more important to not leave damage on the board.  When the Orc is defeated
     and Darkhunter is rescued, he will question your motives.  When he is told
     that his help is required in regards to the Undead, he will agree to assist,
     but he needs to deal with some issues first.  He arranges a meeting with you
     in Gallia, which completes your quest.

     Darkhunter will persuade you to go take the Sorcerer to the Red Tower in
     Maethelburg.  Since you do need Darkhunter's help and he refuses to help you
     until you have done this task, you might as well just do it.  Apparently,
     he's not allowed in Maethelburg for some reason, so make your way over to
     Maethelburg alone with the Sorcerer.  There will probably be a Giant Rat
     blocking your path to Maethelburg, but it's just a normal Giant Rat and
     shouldn't pose too much of a problem.  When you reach Maethelburg, you will
     get a description of the place.  Then, you will get a cut scene of the
     Sorcerer trying to intimidate you.  Apparently, the Sorcerer's name is
     Morag, but no one really cares.  When you try to take the Sorcerer to the
     Riverguard, the Sorcerer will make you an offer.  He wants you to let him go
     in Skellheim in exchange for an ancient sword and information about the
     Undead.  It is up to you which way you want to go.
    
     If you have delivered the prisoner to the Riverguard, you will speak to the
     head of the Riverguard, Lord Greythane.  However, he's really not very kind.
     He gives you some information on the cult that these Sorcerers are in, but
     quickly thanks you and asks you to leave in a hurry.  Make your way back to
     Gallia and talk to Darkhunter, who will now join you as a Companion.
    
     Reward:  +50 Experience, Companion Darkhunter

     Story Quest:  The Prisoner Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Now that you have your first companion, it's time to head back north to 
    Bartonia.  Here, you will get a new series of quests involving Orcs this 
    time.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Rescue Mission
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  A band of Orcs recently traveled over the Hammer Pass, took some
        prisoners and headed back to Kor.  You must try to catch them and rescue
        the prisoners.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Hammer Pass
    
     Completion:
    
     Orcs have been traveling over the Hammer Pass and kidnapping humans.  Your
     Queen, worried about this new trend in Orcs, is asking you to rescue the
     humans that were kidnapped by the Orcs.  If you have Darkhunter in your
     party, when you reach the Hammer Pass, he will express his displeasure in
     fighting Orcs.  After all, he is an Undead specialist.  When you reach the
     Orcish caravan and attempt to rescue the prisoners, you will run into the
     Orcish Chieftain.  He will be equipped with the weapon Great Mang, which has
     a 25% chance to reduce your Red Mana to 0.  If you are a Warrior or a
     Wizard, then this could be a tough fight without Red Mana.  When you defeat
     the Chieftain, the prisoners will be rescued and you will have completed
     your mission.
    
     Reward:  +250 Gold, +50 Experience

     Story Quest:  Rescue Mission Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    When you have freed the prisoners, head back to Bartonia.  The Queen will 
    inform you of a new problem that has appeared.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  None Shall Pass
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  A strange Undead creature - a Liche - is blocking access to the
        forest of Silvermyr.  The Wood Elves need help fighting it.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Alfland, Silvermyr
    
     Completion:
    
     The Wood Elves in Silvermyr have asked for your help in getting rid of a
     Liche that has been hanging around their kingdom.  The Queen believes that
     everyone should help everyone in times of need, so therefore, you will need
     to assist the Wood Elves in getting rid of the creature.  Silvermyr is
     northwest of Theira.  When you reach Alfland, which is just before
     Silvermyr, and you have Darkhunter as one of your Companions, he will give
     you a Lichebane Charm, which does extra damage to Liches.  You should equip
     the charm before you fight the Liche.  The Liche can be found in between
     Alfland and Silvermyr.  Make your way over to the Liche and fight it.  This
     battle should not be too hard to fight the Liche if you have both Darkhunter
     and the Lichebane Charm.  When the Liche is defeated, make your way over to
     Queen Titania and speak with her about the Undead and Orcs problem.  Also,
     you will give her the Lichebane Charm.
    
     Reward:  +350 Gold, +50 Experience
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  None Shall Pass Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Once the Wood Elves are free from the Liche, make your way back to Bartonia.  
    Your Queen has another assignment for you.  This time, it involves helping 
    out the Dwarves.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Dwarven Caravan
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  A Dwarf by the name of Khalkus has requested your aid in getting a
        caravan of supplies safely through Agaria.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Dhun-Kor
    
     Completion:
    
     Just like helping out the Wood Elves, the Queen believes that helping the
     Dwarves will be good for future relations.  A Dwarf named Khalkus needs your
     help in getting his caravan to Theira.  You will need to find Khalkus at the
     Hammer Pass.  Make your way over to the Hammer Pass and meet up with
     Khalkus.  Khalkus talks a whole lot, so shut him and continue to move on.
     Make your way over to Theira with the caravan.  You will need to protect the
     caravan at Theira from a Wight.  Wights have Wightblades, which can drain
     your Red Mana and then put it into his Blue Mana.  When he has a lot of Blue
     Mana, he will use his Spectral Force, which stun you for multiple turns. 
     When the Wight is defeated, you and Khalkus will have a conversation about
     the caravan going all the way to Dhun-Kor.  Khalkus will also talk about
     Dugog, which is a two headed Ogre.  He will talk about avoiding Dugog, but
     instead, you will insist on defeating him.  Apparently, you're bravery is
     greater than your intelligence.  Oh well.  Eventually the two headed beast
     will have to fall...  Either way, you gain a new companion in Khalkus.
    
     Make your way towards Khalkus, but you will end up getting jumped at the
     Hammer Pass.  An Ogre wearing Chainmail armor will attack you.  This Ogre is
     mainly just a trial for the main event.  When you reach Dhun-Kor, you will
     have to face off with Dugog, who will prevent you from entering the city.
    
     +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
     | Boss Battle:  Dugog                                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     | Info:  Dugog has the skills of a regular Ogre and his Extra Head gives   |
     |    him another turn when he collects Gold.  His dangerous club randomly  |
     |    does huge amounts of damage.                                          |
     |                                                                          |
     |    Dugog, the two-headed Ogre, is the leader of the forces that have     |
     |    been attacking Agaria.  Beware the second head!                       |
     |                                                                          |
     | Equipment:                                                               |
     |    Helmet and Crowns:  Extra Head                                        |

     |       Gives a 100% chance to protect against 1 point of damage whenever  |
     |       you receive 2 or more damage                                       |
     |    Weapon:  Dugog's Club                                                 |
     |       Gives a 20% chance to add +12 points of damage whenever you do     |
     |       damage                                                             |
     |    Miscellaneous:  Troll Ring                                            |
     |       Adds +1 to Life Points if Blue Mana is at 6+ at the start of each  |
     |       of your turns                                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     | Skills:                                                                  |
     |    Double Roar                                                           |
     |       Turns all Yellow and Red Gems into Skulls.  After Gems are         |
     |       transformed, the turn ends                                         |
     |    Thump!                                                                |
     |       Does 10 points of damage to the enemy.  Unaffected by Battle       |
     |    Battle Cry                                                            |
     |       Randomly creates a +5 Skull.  Your turn does not end if Red Mana   |
     |       15+                                                                |
     |    Stomp!                                                                |
     |       Destroys all Green Gem, and your enemy loses 1 turn.  You gain     |
     |       full effects for all gems destroyed                                |
     |                                                                          |
     | Tips:                                                                    |
     |    This boss will probably be the hardest in the game simply because you |
     |    probably don't have any overpowered spells in your arsenal when you   |
     |    face him.  Combine that with all of his equipment and the fact that   |
     |    he takes an automatic extra turn whenever he collects Gold and you    |
     |    have a very tough boss to take down.  More than ever you need to try  |
     |    to make sure that you don't leave damage on the board, otherwise      |
     |    you could end up taking more than you would expect because of his     |
     |    club.  In the end, you may need luck to win this battle.              |
     +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     When Dugog is defeated and killed, the caravan is safely at Dhun-Kor and you
     get Dugog's club and a nice reward.

     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     You'll witness a conversation between yourself and Khalkus about someone
     pulling the strings behind the whole situation of blockade of Dhun-Kor.
     Either way, you will need to consult with your queen first.  Make your way
     over to Bartonia and deliver the news to your queen.  When you inform your
     queen of everything that has been going on, she will send you over to Dhun-
     Kor to further investigate the matter.  When you receive your new orders,

    With the death of Dugog, the invasion of Orcs and Undead into your country 
    have become less frequent.  Still, you will need to find out the source of 
    these invasions.  The first place to start off at is Dhun-Kor.  Make your way 
    over to the Dwarven city and begin your investigation.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Tribal Chaos
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  With the death of Dugog, the Orc tribes have been thrown into chaos.
        You must travel to 4 Orc villages and defeat their leaders to quiet them
        down.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Blood Moon, Bone Head, Snake Fang, White Skull
    
     Completion:
    
     You will meet up with the leader of the Merchant Guild.  Apparently, female
     dwarves can grow lots of facial hair.  Either way, you will need to stop
     some Orcs from going out of control.  To complete this, you will have to go
     to four Orc villages and battle the Orc Lord of each village.  Orc Lords
     have Enrage like normal Orcs, but also have the Headbutt skill that can stun
     you and the skill Call the Horde, which can increase Mana and Life Points.
     They also hold a Great Mang, which has a chance to reduce your Red Mana to
     zero.  When you have defeated the first Orc Lord and reach your second
     destination, Darkhunter and Khalkus will have a conversation with each other
     about Orcs and how Darkhunter doesn't want to fight them if you have the 
     both of them in your party.  Battle the Orc Lords at Blood Moon, Bone Head,
     and White Skull.  When they are all defeated, make your way to Snake Fang
     and face off with the last Orc Lord.  Since this is your fourth Orc Lord, if
     you have a Dungeon, you can capture this Orc Lord.  When the Orc Lord is
     defeated, make your way back to Dhun-Kor and report your successes.  When
     your mission is completed, you will receive your reward, along with a nice
     axe.
    
     Reward:  +450 Gold, Dwarven Axe
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Tribal Chaos Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    With the tribes subdued for now, you will have to speak to the Lord of all 
    the Orcs to gather information about what has been going on in regards to the 
    human slaves.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Lord of Orcs
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must travel deep into Kor to meet with Gruulkar, the Great Orc,
        Lord of Kor.  You must then convince Gruulkar to tell you why the Orcs
        are taking prisoners.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Gruuldok, Wargstone (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     Now that the tribes are calmed, you must make your way further into Orc
     territory to meet with the Orc leader, Gruulkar, to interrogate him about
     the prisoners being captured and taken.  Gruulkar can be found in Gruuldok,
     which is south of Snake Fang.  There should be a Wolfrider in your way to
     there.  Wolfriders are just Orcs riding Wolves, which gives them the skills
     of both, along with keeping the speed of Wolves and the power of Orcs.  When
     this Wolfrider is defeated and you reach Gruuldok, make your way over to
     Gruulkar and talk to him.  You will need to bring Gruulkar a Warg's pelt in
     order to speak with him more.  To find a Warg, you will have to go to the
     Wargstone, which is west of Gruuldok.  A Warg is just a nastier version of a
     Wolf.  Wargs are larger and faster than Wolves and have the Rend and Haste
     skills along with the regular Wolf skills.  When you defeat the Warg, take
     it's pelt back to Gruulkar.  He will agree to talk to you for a little
     while.  He will tell you that he is not taking slaves, but some of the Orcs
     are following a new leader that is to the north and they are the ones taking 
     the slaves.  With this new information, your quest is complete.
    
     Reward:  +80 Experience
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Lord of Orcs Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Well, now that you know what is going on and the Orcs are subdued, you will 
    now need to deal with the Ogres and subdue them as well.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Ogre Tactics
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  The Ogres in the south are getting restless.  Somebody needs to
        travel down there and sort them out.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Gork
    
     Completion:
    
     Apparently Gruulkar is trying to stir up trouble using the Ogres as his army
     to attack Dhun-Kor with.  The Ogres will give you problems if you continue
     investigating the slave issue without dealing with them, so you should get
     rid of the Ogre problem first.  Head south to Gork, which is south of
     Gruuldok, and battle an Ogre.  This Ogre is just a regular Ogre and should
     be easy to defeat by now.  When this Ogre is defeated, the other Ogres still
     refuse to listen to you, so you will have to face off with another Ogre.
     This Ogre is wearing a Horned Helm and some Chain Armor to protect him, so
     it will probably take longer to defeat him.  Still, this Ogre should not
     present too much of a problem, as you probably have already battled many
     Ogres.  When this Ogre is defeated, the Ogres will decide that maybe you
     aren't someone to be messing with and will calm down.  Make your way back
     north to Dhun-Kor and return to Khrona to receive your reward.
    
     Reward:  +400 Gold, +90 Experience
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Ogre Tactics Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Now that there is a definite link between Gruulkar and the Ogres, it's time 
    to fully deal with the Ogre and Orc problem in order to find the link between 
    them and the slavers.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Ogre Magic
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must stop any further threat from the Ogres by defeating their
        leader.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Gluk
    
     Completion:
    
     Past Gork is the city of Gluk, which holds the leader of the Ogres.  The
     leader happens to be an Ogre Mage.  Apparently, defeating the Ogre Mage will
     cause the rest of the Ogres to fall into chaos and be leaderless, so your
     next goal will be to defeat the Ogre Mage.  Make your way over to Gluk and
     confront the Ogre Mage.  The Ogre Mage can randomly create Wildcards and
     create +5 Skulls.  Also, this Ogre Mage has the Rain of Fire spell, which
     gets rid of the Red Gems and deals direct damage to you.  When you manage to
     defeat the Ogre Mage, the Ogres will fall into disarray without their 
     leader, so head back to Dhun-Kor and speak to Khrona again to complete your
     mission.
    
     Reward:  +200 Gold, +90 Experience
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Ogre Magic Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Even though Gruulkar doesn't have the Ogres to do his dirty work for him 
    anymore, he still wants to go to war and fight.  However, that would not be 
    good for your investigation into the whole slave deal, so you will need to 
    stop the war from ever starting.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  War Council
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must try to stop Gruulkar from gathering the hordes and going to
        war in Northern Kor.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Khrona will inform you that Gruulkar is gathering the Orcish hordes in order
     to prepare for war with the other races in Dhun-Kor.  Since the death of
     Dugog, northern Kor has become unstable and Gruulkar is trying to take this 
     opportunity to seize control of the entire area.  This would be a detriment
     to what you are trying to accomplish, so you will need to stop the war from
     happening.  You will need to talk to Gruulkar into stopping this war.  If
     talking doesn't work (which it probably won't), even more drastic measures
     will probably be needed.  Make your way over to Gruuldok and speak with
     Gruulkar.  Gruulkar, of course, doesn't want peace and refuses to listen to
     you and sends you out.  When you attempt to talk to him again, he will send
     out an Orc Champion to attack you.  The Orc Champion is very heavily armored
     with a Horned Helm, Chainmail Armor, and Leather Boots.  Furthermore, he
     knows the Headbutt skill, which stuns you.  This won't be an easy fight, but
     when you manage to defeat the Champion, Gruulkar still will not listen to
     you.  Well, apparently you will have to head south to Gluk, because that is
     where the swirling stars are.  When you reach Gluk, you will get a message
     stating that maybe the Ogres will know how to stop Gruulkar.  Well, if they
     do know this information, they will not give this information without a
     fight.  You will need to defeat an Ogre Mage in order for you to get any
     information from them.  The Ogre Mage is a regular Ogre Mage, which means
     you will have random +5 Skulls appearing randomly on the board whenever you
     deal damage to the Ogre Mage.  When you have defeated the Ogre Mage, the
     Ogre will tell you how to stop Gruulkar:  become Gruulkar.  That means you
     must defeat Gruulkar in battle and then take his place as the leaders of the
     Orcs.  Armed with this information, head on back to Dhun-Kor and talk to
     Khrona.  Now is the time to prepare for war with the Orcs.

    The Orcs will begin their preparations for war with Dhun-Kor.  Of course, you 
    will need to prepare for war too.  This means that you will need to perform 
    some sabotage in order to gain the upper hand in battle.

     Story Quest:  The Gobshooter
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  Gruulkar is building a new weapon.  You must find it and destroy it.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     In the village of Snake Fang, Gruulkar is building a new weapon.  Itís a
     catapult, but it's much more than that.  It's a siege weapon that can hurl
     Goblins a great distance.  Of course, this would not be a good thing.  No
     one wants Goblins raining down on them, so make your way over to Snake Fang
     and destroy the weapon.  The Gobshooter can use the Besiege skill like a
     normal catapult, which destroys a 3 by 3 grid on the board at random, but it
     can also use the Hurl Goblin skill, which destroys a random gem and
     multiplies it's effect times 20.  This is bad if it somehow manages to hit a
     +5 Skull, so be careful during the battle.  Other than that and the magical
     ability for Besiege to almost always hit a +5 Skull on the board, this
     battle shouldn't be too hard.  When you have completed this mission, make
     your way back to Dhun-Kor and collect your reward.

     Story Quest:  Gruulkar
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must travel south and defeat Gruulkar himself.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Gruulkar is dead set on going to war and almost nothing is going to stop
     him.  Almost nothing.  You will need to defeat Gruulkar one on one in battle
     in order to stop the war from happening.  Gruulkar has begun to advance his
     armies towards Dhun-Kor.  You won't be able to attack him straight on, but
     you will be able to ambush him from a Scorpion Hole.  There are quite a few
     at Snake Fang, so make your way over there and hide in a Scorpion Hole.
     Unfortunately for you, there is a Scorpion is inside the hole.  Scorpions
     can poison you, so be careful of that.
    
     When the Scorpion is defeated, you will be able to hide in the hole and wait
     for Gruulkar to wander past the hole and ambush him.  Ambush Gruulkar and
     challenge him to a battle.

     | Info:  Gruulkar is an especially tough Orc, and has a shield that        |
     |    increases his Battle skill every time he is hit.  His Great Axe gives |
     |    him extra turns when doing damage.                                    |
     |                                                                          |

     |       Does 4 points of damage to enemy plus an additional +1 for every   |
     |       Skull in play                                                      |
     |                                                                          |
     | Tips:                                                                    |
     |    Every time you deal damage to Gruulkar, his Battle skill will         |
     |    increase, which means he will deal more damage to you the more you    |
     |    deal damage to him.  Also, casting a spell will give him Red Mana,    |
     |    which is important to all of his skills and spells and when he deals  |
     |    damage to you, odds are, he will get another turn because of his      |
     |    Great Axe.  His most annoying skill is his Headbutt skill, which      |
     |    makes you lose turns.  Also, Throw Axe will deal direct damage to     |
     |    you.  Gruulkar isn't as hard as Dugog was, so you should be able to   |
     |    deal with Gruulkar without too many problems.  Just keep attacking    |
     |    Gruulkar with your most powerful attack spells or skill and you       |
     |    shouldn't give him much of a chance to fight back, even if his Battle |
     |    Skill gets upped every time you attack him.                           |
     +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     When Gruulkar is defeated, you will need two things from him in exchange for
     his life.  The first thing is a full withdrawal of the Orcish hordes.  The
     second is more information in regards to the slavers.  Apparently, a giant
     Minotaur called the Mechataur is commanding them from a place called
     Hornburg.  The Mechataur is not an armored Minotaur, but a mechanical one.
     When Gruulkar gives you this information, you tell him to get lost, but not
     before taking his shield.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Dragontrap
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must dispose of a Dragon that has been caught in a Dragontrap
        north of Dhun-Kor.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Dragonrealm
    
     Completion:
    
     You will speak with Khrona about moving on north to investigate the
     Mechataur at Hornburg.  Apparently, Hornburg is the mountains bordering a
     place called the Realms of War, which doesn't sound like a very happy place.
     Either way, finding your way into the area will be difficult.  Khrona will
     ask one more favor of you.  Apparently, they have a Dragon that they need to
     dispose of.  The Dragon can be found in Northern Kor.  Make your way to
     there and you will see the Dragon caught in the Dragontrap developed by the
     Dwarves.  When you approach the Dragon, the Dragon will beg for his life.
     The Dragon doesn't seem to be evil or harming the Dwarves, but simply
     looking around for the other Dragons that have disappeared.  The Dragon
     agrees to help you if you help him.  The Dragon, named Flicker, will
     accompany you into the Dragonrealm, which is northeast of the Dragon Valley.
     When you reach the Dragonrealm, search for Dragons.  You won't find a
     Dragon, but you will get jumped by a Dragon Spider.  Dragon Spiders have the
     Web ability, which can stun you for a few turns and has the Breath Fire
     ability, which can deal direct damage to you.  They can also poison you,
     which can be annoying.  While not as tough as a real Dragon, Dragon Spiders
     can be a pain.  When the Dragon Spider is defeated, you will have another
     conversation with Flicker, which reveals nothing other than the fact that 
     Flicker has the whole sarcasm thing down pat.

    Now that you are in the Dragonrealm, you should be able to search for a 
    couple of Dragons to find out some clues about their whereabouts.  Either 
    way, your next mission will be to wake the elder Dragon, Kelthurax, which 
    doesn't sound like fun.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Waking Kelthurax
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must attempt to wake Kelthurax who slumbers beneath the
        Dragonrealm.  He is the oldest Dragon in Etheria.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Flicker says that you will need to wake up Kelthurax.  Apparently, Kelthurax
     has a bad reputation, so you will need to proceed with caution.  Kelthurax's
     lair is at Dragonrealm, so you will have to make some noise at this area to
     get Kelthurax to wake up.  Unfortunately, after making noise twice, you only
     seem to have attracted the attention of a Wyvern.  This Wyvern has a higher
     Battle and Air Mastery, which means it is stronger than most Wyverns.
     Still, you will have to worry about the Poison it can inflict and the Rend
     skill, which deals direct damage along with allowing the Wyvern to take it's
     turn.  By now, you should be used to fighting Wyverns, so just deal with it
     normally.  When the Wyvern is defeated, Kelthurax wakes up, but not in a
     good mood.  He yells at you and Flicker for disturbing his sleep and proceed
     to inform you that he doesn't care what happened to the other Dragons.

    Now that Kelthurax doesn't want to deal with you (which is a good thing, 
    since him dealing with you probably involves eating you) and there are a 
    couple of clues to where the Dragons are at, you will need to continue your 
    investigation of the being known as the Mechataur.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  The Mechataur
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must travel to the Hornburg to confront the Mechataur.
        Hopefully, you will discover who or what is behind the attacks on your
        homeland.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Hornburg, Horned Temple (after the completion of the
        quest), Valley of Kings
    
     Completion:
    
     Since you have done everything Flicker has asked from you, it's time for
     Flicker to hold up his end of the bargain and assist you with getting the
     Hornburg and deal with the being known as the Mechataur.  Flicker will show
     you the path, but the path is guarded by a Liche.  Liches can create +5
     Skulls on the board whenever you deal a lot of damage to them, which can
     either be a good thing or a bad thing.  Also, the Liche has the spell known
     as Death Gaze, which creates Skulls on the board.
    
     When the Liche is defeated, continue on to Hornburg.  Here is where the
     Mechataur is.  Attack the monstrosity known as the Mechataur.

     | Tips:                                                                    |
     |    The biggest pain in dealing with the Mechataur is his Energize skill  |
     |    and his Mechanical Axe.  His Energize skill will restore 25 points of |
     |    his Life Points at the expense of his Mana Reserves.  However, since  |
     |    he has the Elemental Gem and his Iron Skin gives him lots of Green    |
     |    Mana, his Mana Reserves are normally either full or close to full.    |
     |    His Mechanical Axe will allow him to take an extra turn whenever he   |
     |    deal damage to you, which is also a bad thing.  However, this battle  |
     |    should not be as hard as Dugog was, since you should, by this time,   |
     |    have a high level spell or skill that should do in the Mechataur.     |
     |    Just avoid leaving damage on the board and the Mechataur should be    |
     |    placed out of commission in no time.                                  |
     +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
    
     When the Mechataur is broken, you will interrogate the giant monstrosity.
     Unfortunately, talking to the Mechataur is like talking to a...machine...
     which means you won't get much out of it.  Either way, the Mechataur is out
     of commission and now it's time to move on to the Realms of War.  At least
     you get his Gem in the process.

    With the defeat of the Mechataur, there is still many questions left 
    unanswered.  What are the connections between the human slaves, the Orcish 
    invasion, and the mission Dragons?  The Realms of War, controlled by the

    known as the Horned Temple and be prepared to deal with Minotaurs...and lots

     Story Quest:  Slave Trail
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You have followed the trail of the Orcish Slavers to a huge Horned
        Temple.  You must enter the Temple to learn more.
    
     Places Unlocked:  The Pike
    
     Completion:
    
     The moment you accept the quest, you will have to approach the temple.  You
     will get stopped by a Minotaur named Tauron Flamebite.   He prevents you
     from entering the temple because you are unclean.  Tauron will tell you to
     travel to an area called The Pike.  The Pike will be blocked off by a
     Minotaur.  Minotaurs can use the Charge skill to get rid of an entire row
     and deal damage to you.  Also, if they deal damage to you, they have a 50%
     chance of getting an extra turn because of their Great Axe.  You should be
     able used to fighting Minotaurs by now, so this shouldn't be a problem.
     When you have defeated the Minotaur and reach The Pike, you will find the
     heads of many races on pikes.  Apparently, this was supposed to be some kind
     of warning.  Make your way back to the Horned Temple and talk to Tauron
     again.  Tauron will not have expected you to return, but you somehow manage.
     Tauron will then inform you that he doesn't know about the Minotaur slavers
     and that the Firewalkers are a different type of Minotaur.  Tauron sends out
     a Firewalker Shaman to take you on to prove that they are different.  You
     will have to face off with another Minotaur.  This Minotaur has the Fire
     Bolt spell and the Rain of Fire spell.  This shouldn't make the Minotaur an 
     different from the other Minotaurs you have defeated, so just treat him as 
     normal.  When the Firewalker is defeated, Tauron is impressed, but you still
     cannot enter the Temple.  You will need to become purified before you can
     enter the Temple.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Now that you have proven your worth to Tauron, you will need to gain entrance 
    to the temple.  In order to do this, you will have to purify yourself by 
    passing through a trial.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Trial by Fire
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must undergo a ritual cleansing by the Minotaur Firewalkers.
        Once you have done this, they will agree to talk to you.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Volcano (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     In order to gain access to the Horned Temple and to be able to talk to
     people with knowledge about what is going on, you will have to undergo the
     ritual to become a Firewalker initiate.  The trial is to go up to the
     Volcano and fight a Fire Elemental.  The Volcano is located northeast of the
     Horned Temple.  When you reach the Volcano, you will face off with a Fire
     Elemental.  Fire Elementals can use the spell Wall of Fire to protect itself
     from damage and Fire Siphon to drain your Red Mana and heal itself.  Wall of
     Fire is very annoying because the Fire Elemental likes to horde Red Mana. 
     When you manage to defeat the Fire Elemental, make your way back to the
     Horned Temple and talk to Tauron again.  Tauron sees a transformation in you
     and declares you a Minotaur Firewalker, which gives you an award.  Now you
     can inquire about the slaves that have been taken from your homelands.  You
     learn about Sartek and Lord Bane and what it takes for Sartek to become
     revived.  You also learn that Lord Bane is currently in control of the
     Realms of War and seem to be behind the Slavers.  Finally, you hear about
     Minogoth and where he is located at.  Tauron says that the best way to save
     your comrades is to piece Sartek back together.

     Story Quest:  Trial by Fire Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Now that you are officially a Firewalker, you will need to participate in the 
    tasks that the Firewalkers perform.  Namely, piecing together Lord Sartek and 
    reviving him for the impending rematch with Lord Bane.  The Firewalkers have 
    most of the pieces of the God.  You just need to find the remaining ones.  
    First up are the Horns of Sartek.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Horns of Sartek
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must challenge a Minotaur Tribe in an attempt to reclaim the
        Horns of Sartek.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     The moment you accept this quest, you will be introduced to an elder
     Minotaur Firewalker named Sunspear.  He will become one of your companions
     and will guide you through the process of collecting the pieces of the god
     known as Sartek.  Even though he is old, he is very wise and will help you
     in battles against Minotaurs, which you will run into quite frequently from
     now on.  He will inform you that the Horns of Sartek can be found in the
     city of Tusk.  In order to get the Horns, you will have to travel to the
     city and challenge the Minotaurs there.  Winner takes all in Minotaur
     society, so make your way over to the city of Tusk, which is northeast of
     The Pike.  When you reach the city of Tusk, Sunspear will give you some
     knowledge about Minotaur society.  After this speech, challenge the
     Minotaurs for the Horns of Sartek.  You should be used to fighting Minotaurs
     by now, so you should know that they have the Charge! skill and Great Axes, 
     neither of which is too much to worry about.  Also, since you now have
     Sunspear as your companion, you will gain some Red Mana at the start of the
     battle.  If you are a Warrior or a Mage, this can be a good thing, since
     both of those classes rely on Red Mana.  When the first Minotaur is
     defeated, you will have to challenge the leader of the Minotaurs of this
     area.  The Chieftain Minotaur is just like any other Minotaur except for the
     fact that he has the Cleave skill, which can destroy all Yellow Gems and
     deals damage to you based on what is destroyed.  Also, the Chieftain does
     have some armor on.  This shouldn't provide too many problems for you, so
     simply treat this as a normal Minotaur battle.  When the Chieftain Minotaur
     is defeated, you will obtain the Horns of Sartek.  Apparently, this is the
     93rd and 94th pieces of Sartek with only 7 more pieces left to go, so you
     don't have to find all 100 pieces of the God.

     Story Quest:  Horns of Sartek Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Well, now that you have the Horns of Sartek, it is time to collect more 
    pieces of Sartek.  However, you will soon realize that not everyone wants 
    Sartek to return.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Eye of Sartek
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must obtain the Eye of Sartek from the Elves and return it to the
        Horned Temple.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     You will have to get one of the Eyes of Sartek from the Elves of Silvermyr.
     The Elves there use the Eye of Sartek on top of the Tree of Seeing as a way
     to see around their kingdom and look for approaching danger.  Hopefully
     asking Queen Titania nicely will make her give up the Eye of Sartek.  If you
     have completed the Side Quest Arioc Blockade, you should have a quick path
     from the Horned Temple to Silvermyr.  If not, you will probably have to take
     the long way around.  When you reach Silvermyr, the Queen will hear your
     request, but will deny you the Eye of Sartek.  Looks like the only way you
     are going to get the Eye of Sartek is by stealing it.  You will have to
     climb the Tree of Seeing, but in the middle of the climb, you will get
     attacked by an Elven Guard.  Elven Guards are very well balanced in their
     skills and their equipment.  Elven Guards have equipment that will increase
     their Mana Reserves.  Also, they have the Archery skill, which will deal
     direct damage to you based on your Yellow Mana, and they have the Entangle
     spell, which can stun you.  Finally, they have the Gemberry spell, which 
     heals their life points based on their Blue Mana.  If you have Princess
     Serephine on your team, she will provide you with some aid in helping you
     dispatch the guard.  When the Elven Guard is defeated, you will climb to the
     top of the Tree of Seeing.  However, when you try to take the Eye of Sartek,
     you will get stopped by a Griffon.  Griffons have a dangerous combination of
     skills.  Their Soar skill can turn all Green and Blue Gems into Yellow Gems,
     which will set up their Death Dive skill, which deals direct damage to you
     based on the number of Yellow Gems on the board.  However, if you have the
     Cleave skill or any other skills that deal with Yellow Gems on the board,
     you should be able to quickly dispatch of the Griffon.  Even if you don't
     have any skills dealing with Yellow Gems, the Griffon should not be a hard
     opponent.  When the Griffon is defeated, you will obtain the Eye of Sartek.
     However, blocking your exit out of Silvermyr is another Elven Guard.  I
     mean, after all, you are now on the Silvermyr ten most wanted list.  You'd
     think there would be more Guards wanting your head.  This Guard is the same
     as the one you've fought already, so just follow the same procedure.  When
     the guard is defeated, make your way back to the Horned Temple and complete 
     your mission.  Tauron is happy that you have the Eye, but you're not so
     happy about the theft.  Some sacrifices have to be made to save the world...

    Only six more pieces of Sartek remain.  The next piece to locate will be the 
    Tail of Sartek.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Tail of Sartek
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must defeat a Minotaur Slaver who wields the legendary Tail of
        Sartek as a whip.  Then you must return the Tail to the Horned Temple.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     The next piece of Sartek is currently in the hands of a Minotaur Slaver.  It
     is in the city of Blackhoof which is in the Realms of War.  Blackhoof is
     west of Tusk, so make your way over there and challenge the Minotaur Slaver.
     The Slaver has the Tail of Sartek as his weapon.  He wields it like a Whip,
     which will deal 1 to 10 points of damage to you whenever he gains 3 or more
     Red Mana.  Other than that, he is a regular Minotaur.  Other than keeping
     Red Mana away from him, there should be nothing else you need to worry
     about.  When the Minotaur Slaver is defeated, return back to the Horned
     Temple and return the Tail to Tauron.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Tooth of Sartek
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must obtain the Tooth of Sartek from the Gnoll Chieftain in Hyaan
        and return it to Tauron.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Be lucky that you only need one Tooth and not the entire set.  Tauron was
     nice enough to find the rest for you.  Sunspear informs you that the Tooth
     is currently in possession of a Gnoll Chieftain.  The Gnoll city of Hyaan
     can be found southwest of The Pike.  There will be a Gnoll standing in the
     way of Hyaan, so you will have to defeat it first.  Gnolls can be annoying
     because their Accessory, the Gnoll Pack, makes them stronger each time they
     gain Gold or Experience.  Also, when they deal damage, they gain a little 
     bit of life.  Finally, they have the Sense Blood skill, which destroys Red
     and Blue Gems and gives the Gnoll Gold for it, which allows them to become
     stronger because of their Gnoll Pack, and they have the Hide skill, which
     doubles all damage they deal while Hidden.  When you have gotten through the
     Gnoll, make your way to Hyaan.  When you try to visit the Chieftain, a Gnoll
     will stop you.  The Gnolls name is Staf and he wants to become leader of the
     Gnolls.  In order to do that, he will need the old Chieftain to be defeated,
     which was what you were going to do anyways.  Staf says that if you defeat
     the old Chieftain, he will give you the Tooth as a thank you.  When you are
     done talking to Staf, challenge the Chieftain to a battle.  This Gnoll will
     be just like the Gnoll you've fought before except this one is tougher that
     normal and he is equipped with the Tooth of Sartek as his accessory instead
     of the Gnoll Pack.  The Tooth of Sartek will increase the damage done to you
     when the Gnoll Chieftain matches skulls.  Finally, he has more skills than
     most Gnolls do, like Sneak Attack and Stun.  Sneak Attack can get annoying
     because it deals direct damage to you without having to lose a turn for your
     opponent.  You should be able to defeat this Gnoll pretty handily by this
     time, so when the Gnoll Chieftain falls, you get the Tooth of Sartek from
     Staf.  Return to Tauron and give him the Tooth, along with information on
     the state of Hyaan.

     Story Quest:  Spine of Sartek
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must travel into Southern Kor and find an Ogre Mage that has made
        the Spine of Sartek into a war banner.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     The Spine is kind of important for every day living and movement.  Sunspear
     knows where the Spine is and he is giving the task of getting the Spine to
     you.  An Ogre Mage has the Spine of Sartek.  Unfortunately for you, the Ogre
     Mage is in Southern Kor in the city of Gluk.  It is a long journey and there
     should be many random enemies along the way.  When you finally reach Gluk,
     battle the Ogre Mage.  Ogre Mages can create a +5 Skull whenever you deal
     damage to them.  Also, they can create Wildcards with their Wild Magic
     spell.  Finally, this Ogre Mage is in possession of the Spine of Sartek,
     which adds +20 to his Morale skill, meaning this Ogre Mage has a lot of Life
     Points.  However, this should not be too difficult of a battle for you, even
     though Sunspear warned you that this might be difficult.  When the Ogre Mage
     is defeated, begin your trek back north to the Horned Temple.  When you
     reach the Horned Temple, give the Spine of Sartek to Tauron.  Tauron will be
     overjoyed at you returning the Spine of Sartek.

    Three more pieces left.  If you put together Sartek, does that mean that a 
    God will owe you a huge favor?  I mean, after all, being put back together 
    should count as something major that you should receive huge compensation 
    for.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Ribs of Sartek
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  Somewhere in the Realms of War a Minotaur King has hidden the Ribs of
        Sartek.  You must find them.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     The programmers of this game could have been mean and told you to find each
     individual rib for Sartek.  Instead, you just simply have to find the entire
     ribcage, which is still intact.  A Minotaur King has fashioned the Ribs of
     Sartek into a battle armor.  It seems like each piece of Sartek is good for
     some type of fashion accessory.  Anyways, Sunspear tells you that he does
     not know where the Minotaur King is, so you will have to hunt throughout the
     entire Realms of War to find him.  There will be shining stars at The Pike,
     Weret, Blackhoof, and Giants' Walk.  At each of these places, you will have
     to search for the Ribs of Sartek.  If you do not find the Ribs, you will
     have to continue on and search at the next area.  The place where the Ribs
     are at is random.  When you finally find the Ribs of Sartek, you will be
     challenged by a Minotaur King.  The Minotaur King is wearing the Ribs of
     Sartek as armor.  The Ribs of Sartek protects against 5 points of damage
     whenever the Minotaur King receives 10 or more points of damage.  Other than
     that, you simply just have to deal with things that the Minotaur Kings have,
     which is the Great Axe, the Charge! skill, and the Berserk Rage spell.  Just
     like fighting a stronger version of a Minotaur.  If you have Drong in your
     party after you have defeated the Minotaur King, he will try to take a bite
     out of the Ribs of Sartek.  These aren't barbecue ribs, but I don't think
     Drong cares.  Either way, you promise Drong that the next God you guys run
     across, Drong can take a nice bite out of him.  Hopefully your words won't
     come back to haunt you...  When the Minotaur King is defeated, make your way
     back to the Horned Temple.  Tauron is starting to get really excited at all
     the pieces of Sartek you have brought back.

     Story Quest:  Ribs of Sartek Complete!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    The only things left to find are the Crest of Sartek and the Skull of Sartek.  
    Sartek is looking more like a God each and every day.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Crest of Sartek
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must find a Knight in the Borderlands who has had the Crest of
        Sartek mounted onto his helm, then return to Tauron with the Crest.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     This time, you inform Sunspear of where the next journey should be.  He
     tells you that the Crest of Sartek is located at a place called the Red
     Tower and you tell him it is in a city called Maethelburg.  So now, you must
     travel all the way to Maethelburg and talk to a Knight there.  This will be
     another long journey with lots of random monsters in your way.  When you get
     to Gallia, if you have Darkhunter in your party, he will inform you that he
     still cannot enter Maethelburg.  He will then finally agree to tell you his
     story.  Apparently, he fell in love with a girl named Liandra.  Liandra is
     the daughter of Lord Greythane.  Remember Liandra?  If you have been doing
     the Darkhunter Side Quests, you will already know Liandra is currently
     Undead.  Liandra, before she became evil and all dead, she was betrothed to
     Darkhunter.  Unfortunately, she became Undead when Darkhunter wanted to kill
     off an Undead Sorcerer and failed to do so, allowing Liandra to die and
     become Undead.  Either way, you cannot enter Maethelburg with Darkhunter in
     your party.  So, for now, take him out of your party.  He will let you know
     that he will be in Gallia when you want to pick him up again.  When
     Darkhunter is not in your party anymore, make your way to Maethelburg and
     visit the Red Tower.  Talk to Lord Greythane and tell him you are looking
     for a certain Knight.  When you describe the Crest he has, Lord Greythane
     will tell you that you are looking for Sir Borik.  He is no longer a 
     Riverguard, but Lord Greythane tells you that you can find him in 
     Drakenburg.  Make your way back to Gallia and pick up Darkhunter again and 
     then travel west to Drakenburg.  When you reach Drakenburg, challenge Sir
     Borik to a battle.  Sir Borik is a very powerful Knight.  He has very good
     armor on and the Crest of Sartek he has on his head will increase his
     Resistances every time he matches up 4 or 5 Gems.  Also, he has the Revenant
     spell which increase his Battle skill and has the Favor spell which can heal
     his life.  This is all on top of the Thrust and Divine Right skills Knights
     normally have.  Finally, Sir Borik has a high Life Points total and high
     Battle, all of which will make a tough battle.  When you defeat Sir Borik,
     you get his helm with the Crest of Sartek as your prize.  You will now need
     to head back to the Horned Temple, which is still a long journey.  However,
     when you leave Drakenburg, another Knight will be waiting for you to fight
     you.  This Knight is just a normal Knight, so you should be able to defeat
     this Knight relatively easily compared to Sir Borik.  When that Knight is
     defeated, continue your journey to the Horned Temple.  When you reach the
     Horned Temple, Tauron will tell you the location of the last piece of
     Sartek.  It is in the Horned Citadel of Othar.

    Just one more piece remains.  Finally, the fetch quests from Hell is almost 
    over.  The final piece of Sartek is located in Othar.  However, Othar is not 
    unoccupied.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Skull of Sartek
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must steal the final piece of Sartek, his huge skull, from
        Minogoth, in the Horned Citadel of Othar.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Othar
    
     Completion:
    
     Minogoth, the Minotaur that seems to be running the show for Lord Bane in
     the Realms of War, currently has the Skull of Sartek in his possession to
     prevent you from rebuilding the God.  Minogoth apparently cannot be
     completed defeated at this time.  If he is defeated, he will just rise up
     again because he is Undead.  Undead are annoying like that.  While you are
     fighting Minogoth, the other Firewalkers plan to steal the Skull away from
     Minogoth.  Sounds easy enough to be a distraction.  Othar is north of
     Blackhoof, so make your way over to there.  After the long journeys you have
     been going on, this should be a welcome easy short travel.  When you reach
     Othar, if you have Flicker in your party, he will do a fly by of Othar and
     inform you of what is going on inside of the Citadel.  He tells you that
     Minogoth is all over the Skull of Sartek and that you will not get it
     without going through Minogoth first.  When you enter the Horned Citadel,
     Minogoth will talk big about eating you and then turning you into a slave.
     In the end, this conflict must be settled with violence as you take on the
     Undead Minogoth.

     | Tips:                                                                    |
     |    Minogoth comes equipped with some serious equipment.  By far, his     |
     |    Armor of Minogoth might provide the most headaches, since it          |
     |    increases his Earth Resistance by a lot at the start of battle.  If   |
     |    you rely on any spells that use Green Mana, you might not be able to  |
     |    land those spells very often.  Luckily, the Resistance caps after a   |
     |    while.  Also, his Axe of Doom combos very well with his Wake the Dead |
     |    spell.  If he uses the Wake the Dead spell, try not to let him match  |
     |    any Skulls until you can clear the board of some of the +5 Skulls.    |
     |    Finally, every time he matches up 4 or 5 Gems, all of the Purple      |
     |    Stars will disappear, meaning he is anti-Knight.  Hopefully, if you   |
     |    are playing as a Knight, you can set up your loop combos before       |
     |    Minogoth gets rid of all the Purple Stars on the board (at least, you |
     |    should be able to by this time almost get off the loop combo on the   |
     |    first couple of turns).  By this time, you should know what is your   |
     |    best skills and combos to use against most enemies, so throw out your |
     |    best loops and spells to take down the Undead Minotaur.               |
     +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     When the Undead Minotaur goes down, you will interrogate Minogoth.  He is
     more talkative than the Mechataur.  Minogoth informs you that Lord Bane gets
     all the slaves and metal that Minogoth collects, but won't tell you any more
     than that.  At least you manage to grab the Skull of Sartek before Minogoth
     can recover.  You also steal the Armor off of his body, which is a nice
     prize added on.  When you return the Skull to Tauron, Tauron agrees to clear
     out a path for you to get to Lord Bane.

    The Firewalkers put Lord Sartek back together and prepare the ritual to

    Othar and the rest of Lord Bane's forces in the Realms of War.  However, Lord

     Story Quest:  Gornak's Gap
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must cross the mountains into the Realms of Death in search of
        Lord Bane.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Bane's Citadel (disappears during story), Gornak's Gap,
        Graww (disappears during story), Sea of Ice (disappears during story)
    
     Completion:
    
     Tauron will see you off on your journey into Lord Bane's territory, the
     Realms of Death.  Tauron marks off the path to Lord Bane's Citadel on your
     map.  Unfortunately for you, when you reach Gornak's Gap, Lord Bane will
     make his first appearance to you in person.  Lord Bane tells you to go away.
     So if he is a God and all that, why is he telling you to go away instead of
     just smiting you?  It's probably because he is afraid of you.  Lord Bane
     sends a Doomknight after you to do his dirty work.  Also, a blizzard will
     cover up the path to Bane's Citadel.  Definitely afraid of you.  Take on the
     Doomknight that Bane has left for you to play with.  Doomknights are Undead
     and have the Wake the Dead spell.  Also, they have a combo using their
     Burial spell.  The Burial spell will turn all Skulls and Gold Coins into
     Green Gems.  With this, the Doomknight can possibly get more Green Mana,
     which powers up their Unholy Lance, which deals more damage the more Green
     Mana the Doomknights have, and powers up their Sword of Bane spell, which
     deals direct damage to you based on the Doomknight's Green Mana.  Also,
     their armor increases their Earth Resistance, which means that spells using
     Green Mana have a chance of being resisted by them.  A powerful foe indeed,
     but you should be even more powerful.  I mean, after all, you just scared a
     God off.  When the Doomknight is defeated, Sunspear will inform you that the
     blizzard is too rough to go through and that you will have to find another
     way to get to Bane's Citadel.  Make your way back to Othar and talk to
     Tauron.  Tauron tells you that there is another way to get to the Realms of 
     Death, but it is through the Gnoll lands of Hyaan and then through the High
     Elves lands.

     Story Quest:  Northern Tundra
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must travel to the Ruins of Ylarie in the Northern Tundra and
        seek help from the High Elves who guard the remaining two passes into
        Lord Bane's realm.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Eldros' Tower, Ylarie
    
     Completion:
    
     Tauron gives you directions to the realm of the High Elves.  The High Elves
     live on the Northern Tundra in the ruins of Ylarie.  First, make your way to
     Hyaan.  Once you reach Hyaan, you will have to head west of there to Ylarie.
     There should be a Wight that tries to block your path to Eldros' Tower.
     Wights are annoying in the fact that they can steal your Red Mana and turn
     it into Blue Mana for them using their Wightblades.  With this Blue Mana,
     they can use the spell Spectral Force, which stuns you for a couple of
     turns.  When the Wight is vanquished, make your way to Eldros' Tower.  You
     will run into a female High Elf Dragonknight.  She will stop you and
     question your intentions for wanting to go into the Realms of Death.  She
     decides to escort you to Ylarie.  However, in the path of Ylarie is a Liche.
     When you damage a Liche, a +5 Skull will appear randomly on the board.
     Also, they have a spell called Death Gaze, which will cut your Life Points
     in half and randomly create Skulls on the board.  Not very fun at all.  When
     the Liche is out of the way, you will reach Ylarie.  The High Elf
     Dragonknight, named Elistara will show you a tour of her home, which is in
     ruins.  Apparently, she has all but given up the fight, but you haven't.
     The slaves you were trying to rescue are now the Undead you fight and the
     metal you were trying to retrieve is now weapons for Lord Bane's army.
     Well, since you can't save people, you might as well get rid of the person
     who is doing all of this.

    Lord Bane's Undead army has been advancing upon the ruins of Ylarie for some 
    time now.  Apparently, they are going to make another push again.  Ylarie is 
    important for reaching Lord Bane's Citadel, so you will need to defend the 
    city.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Story Quest:  Ylarie Defense
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must help the High Elves defend Ylarie against waves of Undead
        attackers.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Eldros' Tower, Ylarie
    
     Completion:
    
     You first need to try to convince Elistara that the fight against Bane isn't
     over yet.  To convince her, you will need to defend Ylarie from the Undead.
     Also, Ylarie is important to getting to the passes to reach Bane's Citadel,
     so defending Ylarie is strategically important also.  First, you will need
     to defend Ylarie against a Zombie.  Zombies can inflict Disease upon you
     with their attacks.  Furthermore, their Eat Skulls spell will increase their 
     Battle for each Skull eaten.  The Zombie shouldn't be too hard to take down,
     but this is merely the first wave.  The second wave is a Wight.  Wights can
     be a pain because they can drain your Red Mana with their Wightblades and
     convert them to Blue Mana for them.  With that Blue Mana, they can case the
     Spectral Force spell, which will stun you for a few turns.  When the Wight
     is defeated, you will tell Elistara that you are winning.  However, she is
     still pessimistic about the whole deal.  The final creature that you will
     need to defend against is a Doomknight.  You should remember fighting one of
     these before when Bane blocked your path with the blizzard.  Simply keep an
     eye on the Doomknight's Green Mana to avoid taking too much damage from the
     Sword of Bane spell and their Unholy Lances.  When the Doomknight is
     defeated, you apparently get cocky and start to brag to Darkhunter about
     your victories.  Darkhunter tells you that an Arkliche may be behind the
     attacks.  Apparently, the Arkliche was the creature that killed Liandra.
     Either way, the Arkliche is your fourth foe.  Arkliches can create +5 Skulls
     on the board every time you attack them and can randomly create a Skull on
     their turn.  Also, they can drain your Experience points and can use the
     spell Soul Swap, which switches your Mana Reserves with their Mana Reserves.
     They also have a high Fire Resistance to stop your spells.  Finally, you
     must be wary of their Death Gaze spell, which will half your Life Points.
     This foe is basically the top of the food chain when it comes to the Undead.
     If you manage to down the Arkliche, Elistara becomes convinced that maybe
     you might be able to turn the tides of the war against Bane.

     Story Quest:  Skullguard Keep
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must help the High Elves to recapture Skullguard Keep.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Skullguard Keep
    
     Completion:
    
     There are two passes into Bane's Realm of Death.  You must recapture one of
     those passes right now to prevent Bane's army from entering your territory
     and giving you a way into his territory.  There is an Arkliche defending
     Skullguard Keep, but it should be like just like the time you knocked off
     the first one.  Skullguard Keep is north of Ylarie, so make your way over to
     there.  If you have Darkhunter in your party, you will find out that the
     Arkliche here is the one that killed Darkhunter's betrothed, Liandra.  In
     order to recapture the Keep, you will need to defeat this Arkliche.  It's
     just like the first Arkliche you fought, so be careful of its Death Gaze and
     Soul Swap.  When the Arkliche is defeated, you will learn from Elistara that
     you will be a honorary member of the Skullguard.  Elistara remembers the
     first time Lord Bane was defeated, which was six hundred years ago.
     Apparently, High Elves live forever.  You learn that one of your ancestors
     single handedly defeated Lord Bane.  Lord Bane has good reason to fear you
     because he's been knocked off by your family once.

    Helping the High Elves is the best chance you have to defeat Lord Bane and

     Story Quest:  The Future

     Info:  You must gather some herbs for the High Elven Mages who need them to
        cast a spell of farseeing.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Bonebridge
    
     Completion:
    
     Elistara informs you that the High Elven Mages want to look into Lord Bane's
     territory using their magic.  However, in order to do so, they need some
     herbs in Lord Bane's territory.  Elistara also tells you about a creature
     known as the Arboleth.  Arboleths are one of Lord Bane's experiments gone
     wrong.  They are a twisted mass of misfortune and have a high resistance to
     magic.  The area you need to get to is the Bonebridge, which is north of
     Skullguard Keep.  When you reach the Bonebridge and search for the herbs,
     you get jumped by an Arboleth.  Arboleths know the spells Wild Magic, which
     creates Wildcards at random on the board, Chaos Bolt, which deals direct
     damage to you based on a random Mana Reserve, and Consume Mana, which
     destroys all the Gems of a certain color and gives the Arboleth that Mana.
     Also, they have a 10% magic resistance across the board, so they can be hard
     to hit with spells that span multiple colors.  Finally, their equipment, the
     Chaos Skin, will heal themselves whenever you cast a spell.  Besides all of
     that, it's just plain ugly and needs to be put down.  When you have defeated
     the Arboleth, you will obtain the first set of herbs the High Elven Mages
     want.  If you have Sunspear in your party, he will make an observation about
     the Arboleths.  You will need to now search for the second set of herbs,
     which is in the same area.  This time, you will get jumped by a Liche.
     After fighting off the Arboleth, the Liche should seem pretty tame and easy.
     When you have the second set of herbs, make your way back to Ylarie and
     complete your mission.  Elistara will inform you that the Arboleths are
     byproducts of Lord Bane's creations and there have been more of them lately,
     which means Lord Bane has been producing a lot more Undead.

    If you have been doing all the Side Quests up until now, you should end up 
    finding your ninth companion in the form of Elistara.  However, you can only 
    have eight companions with you.  The first time I went through the game, I 
    left Darkhunter off of my party.  The second time, I left Patch off of my 
    team.  I think neither of them have any more Side Quests after you finish the 
    Liandra side story and find a safe place for Patch's treasure, but I'm not 
    100% sure on either count.  Either way, Elistara is a good member to have on 
    your team because she adds Water Resistance and any form of Spell Resistance 
    is good.  When you are finished rounding out your party, move on to the next 
    task at hand when dealing with Lord Bane.

     Story Quest:  Three Skulls
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Info:  You must find and defeat the three Generals of Lord Bane's army, evil
        Sorcerers who are preparing his army of Undead.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Graww, Sea of Ice
    
     Completion:
    
     In order to cripple Lord Bane's army, you must take out the three generals
     helping to create and lead his army of Undead.  If you manage to take out
     these three Necromancers, the Undead army will be unable, for now, to attack
     Skullguard Keep, which seems to be their first target.  Unfortunately, even
     if you manage to defeat the Necromancers, they will probably become
     Arkliches, which is no better.  However, this delay might be what you need
     to get to Lord Bane before he can take Skullguard Keep.  The first of Lord
     Bane's Necromancers is at the Bonebridge.  Head over there and fight the
     Necromancer.  Of course, the Necromancer tries to make you not kill him, but
     merely think of him begging for his miserable life and move on with the
     stabbing.  Necromancers have equipment and spells that will drain your Mana
     Reserves.  Their Sorceror's Cloak and Necrotic Staff will drain your Mana
     every time you damage the Necromancer or cast a spell.  Their Dark Bolt and
     Mana Burn also drain your Mana, with the Dark Bolt inflicting Blind as well.
     Finally, their Bonefire Helm, Ring of Earth, and Burial spell are designed
     to up the Necromancer's Green Mana so that their Bone Avatar spell will up
     their Battle skill by a whole lot.  Luckily, the only thing you don't have
     to worry about when dealing with Necromancers is direct damage.  Try to get
     off a powerful spell as soon as you can, as you don't want your Mana to be
     drained by the Necromancer.  Unfortunately, if you are playing a class the
     depends on loops, this might be a difficult battle, as casting a spell will
     drain your Mana.  When this Necromancer is defeated, you will need to move
     on to the next one.  The next Necromancer is at the Lake of Blood.  Like the
     last Necromancer, this one wants to talk before his death.  It fights the
     same way as the first one, so just use the same tactics as before.  The
     final Necromancer is at the Sea of Ice.  Apparently, talking trash before
     death is a common trait among Necromancers.  Defeat this one like you have
     the other two.  When the final Necromancer is defeated, Lord Bane will
     personally talk to you again.  You give Lord Bane the chance to surrender,
     but he refuses.  Talk about missing your opportunity to save your hide.  The
     good guy always wins.

     |    Lord Bane is a God, so therefore, he is going to be tough to defeat.  |
     |    His spells are all cheap and they destroy Gems of a certain color.    |
     | Even more so, every time he destroys Gems like that, he gains points in  |
     | his Spell Masteries.  This just makes his equipment even more powerful,  |
     | because the higher his Masteries are, the more powerful his equipment    |
     | become.  His Crown can increase his Battle and Life Points total based   |
     | on his Air Mastery while his Cloak can randomly heal himself based on    |
     | his Water Mastery.  Finally, his sword deals more damage the higher his  |
     | Fire Mastery is while his Shield increases his Spell Resistances based   |
     | on his Earth Mastery.  Definitely a powerful foe.  His Masteries already |
     | start off at a decent level, so his stats will be powered up from the    |
     | get go.  The way to get to Lord Bane is to try to hit him hard or loop   |
     | him right from the start.  The longer the battle goes, the less likely   |
     | you will win.  That is pretty much it.  Just do what you have been doing |
     | normally in battles, except faster and quicker.                          |
     +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     When Bane is finally defeated, he will inform you that he is a God and that
     he will rise up again.  However, you kindly remind him that there is a
     certain Lord Sartek, who is a God also, that has been looking to carve up
     Bane into many pieces and scatter him to the ends of the earth.  If you have
     Drong in your party, he will try to eat Lord Bane.  Well, you did say he
     could eat the next God you run across...

      PQUCITYQ           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    There are many different side quests in this game.  I have classified them 
    into two different categories.  The first category is city side quests.  City 
    side quests are where the side quests are entirely based in a city and not on 
    a character.
    
    The only one that really isn't completely based on a city are the Enmouth 
    Side Quests.  Those quests can lead up to Princess Serephine.  The only 
    reason why they are listed there instead of her quest list is because most of 
    the quests there are not based on Princess Serephine, including the last 
    quest of the set.  Rather than split them up, I just placed all of them for 
    Enmouth.

     Requirements:  Have completed the Story Quest The Missive
    
     Info:  Giant Spiders have infested the Ancient Grove where the Elenian
        Druids hold their ceremonies.  If you can slay the largest of these

     Completion:
    
     The Ancient Grove is north of Elenia.  Make your way over to there and then
     fight the Giant Spider.  This Giant Spider has the Howl skill, but you
     shouldn't worry about that too much.  You should worry more about the Poison
     it can inflict.  When this Giant Spider is killed, the rest run away,
     allowing the Druids of Elenia to go back to whatever they were doing.

     Side Quest:  Beneath Gildor
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Location:  Bartonia
    
     Requirements:  Have completed the Story Quest The Missive and above level 5
    
     Info:  Giant Rats have been plaguing Gildor.  You must seek out the largest
        of these rats and slay it.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Gildine Sewers (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     The Gildine Sewers is located west of Gildor.  Head over there to search the
     sewers for the biggest of the Giant Rats.  Since this tactic worked with the
     Giant Spiders before, it should work for the Giant Rats, right?
     Unfortunately, defeating the first Giant Rat won't solve the problem.  You
     will have to defeat two Giant Rats.  You will have to defeat the first rat
     and then search again to find the second rat.  The first Giant Rat is
     normal, but the second Giant Rat is Undead and has the Chill Touch skill,
     which can drain your Red Mana.  If you are dependant on Red Mana, you may
     want to look out for that.  When both rats are defeated, you will have to
     search again.
    
     After you search one more time, you will find the source of the problem.
     Apparently, a Wight has been controlling the rats.  Looks like the problem
     is now an Undead problem.  This Wight is known as the Rat King.  All Wights
     use a Wightblade, which can be a potentially deadly weapon, as it drains
     your Red Mana and converts it to Blue Mana for your opponent.  Wights need
     Blue Mana to unleash its best skill, Spectral Force.  This skill allows the
     Wights to take many turns in succession, but it costs a lot of Blue Mana.
     If the Wight uses this skill, you can be sure that you will end up taking
     some type of damage during the turns the Wight has.  When the Rat King is
     defeated, the Rats will run away.  Now, you can claim the amulet he has.
    
     Reward:  +40 Experience, Rat King's Amulet

        and chase them away.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Royal Crypt (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     While this quest is unlocked after level 6, you may want to wait a little
     while to take on this quest.  That is because the Bat you will need to face
     is a Vampire Bat.  Vampire Bats can cast the spell Vampirism, which takes
     life from you and gives it to him.  Also, the Vampire Bat has more life
     points than most other Bats and also knows the Haste spell.  When you are
     ready to take on the Vampire Bat is located at the Royal Crypt, which is
     west of Theira.  When the large Vampire Bat is defeated, the rest of the
     bats will fly away, leaving the Royal Crypt at peace again.  Your reward for
     the tough battle is very small.

     stun skill.  When the Orc is defeated, you will have found Lord Michael.

     son.  You will receive a pretty good weapon in return.

     of Bartonia.  When you reach Enmouth, you will have to approach the palace
     of the Emperor.  However, you will not be allowed through.  The guard is an

     Make your way over there and you will end up fighting a Minotaur.  Minotaurs
     are normally equipped with a Great Axe, but this one has a Whip, which deals

        Trarg.
    
     Places Unlocked:  The Trarg
    
     Completion:
    
     The Emperor has one more task for you before he can give you his response.
     You must escort his daughter to The Trarg to have her marry their leader and
     bring peace between the two parties.  Unfortunately, his daughter doesn't
     want to marry Utrarg and is good at charming people to get her way.  I mean,
     after all, who wants to say they are married to someone named Utrarg?
     Either way, since you are full of honor and stuff, you are the prime
     candidate to lead her to her wedding altar.  Princess Serephine is currently
     at Barthel.  Make your way over there and meet her.  She will try to flatter
     you and bribe you, but for now, force her to tag along.  Now, you must head
     south to The Trarg.  Both paths should be blocked off by Wolves.  Get rid of
     either Wolf and then make your way to The Trarg.  When you reach The Trarg,
     Serephine will once again ask you to release her.  She will ask you to take
     her to Bartonia.  You will be given a choice.  You can either deliver
     Serephine to Utrarg or make your way over to Bartonia and free Serephine.
     If you free Serephine, she will join you as a companion and give you her
     ring.

        Bartonia.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Dark Path Shrine
    
     Completion:
    
     It doesn't matter which choice you made in the previous quest, but make your
     way back to Enmouth and receive the reply from the Emperor.  Unfortunately,
     he refuses to send any aid because he is an ass, but he does provide you
     with a map that marks where some cultists are at.  It's just a place to
     fight some Imps to be able to capture one of them, so if you want to capture
     an Imp, you might as well do it now, as when you complete the quest, you
     will no longer be able to battle the Imps at the Dark Path Shrine.  Either
     way, head back to Bartonia and deliver the message to your Queen.  She will
     give you the opportunity to become a knight now.

     Info:  You must seek out and train with each of the 5 Orders of Agarian
        Knights and then choose an Order to join.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     While this mission doesn't start off in Enmouth, it is a direct result of
     all your quests in Enmouth.  You will be given a chance to join one of the
     Knightly Orders of Agaria.  There are five orders of knights:  one in
     Bartonia and one in each of the territories surrounding Bartonia.  You must
     visit each knight's headquarters and train with one of their Knights.  By
     train you I mean you need to defeat a Knight in each area.  It does not
     matter in what order you face off with each knight.  Each knight has
     something special about him that represents his order of knights.  The
     knight at Bartonia has a higher Battle and Life Total than normal knights
     and the Bartonian Knights are based off of discipline and chivalry.  The
     knight at Elenia has a Longbow and has the Archery skill and the Elenian
     Knights are masters of stealth and archery.  The knight at Gildor has really
     good armor on him and the Gildine Knights believe that power lies in gold
     and wealth.  The knight at Siria has a Holy Lance which deals higher damage
     if the knight has a lot of Yellow Mana and the Sirian Knights are the oldest
     order and the most dedicated to purging evil.  The knight at Theira has a
     Theiran Hammer, which can change Yellow Gems to Blue Gems and the Theiran
     Knights are built around strength.  If you have Princess Serephine as your
     Companion, she will help you out in each battle.  When you have defeated all
     five knights, you will be given a chance to join one of the orders.  Each
     order gives you a different bonus.  Here is the list of bonuses you will
     gain under each order:
    
     Bartonian Knights:  +2 Battle
     Elenian Knights:  +2 Earth Mastery
     Gildine Knights:  +2 Cunning

     Info:  Harpies have infested the Old Outpost again - an ancient Selentine
        Tower on the edge of the forest that was overrun by Elenian archers 100
        years ago.  You must clean out the Tower.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Old Outpost
    
     Completion:
    
     You need to help the Selentine Empire out one more time and clear out
     Harpies from a tower.  The tower you are looking for, the Old Outpost can be
     found east of Barthel.  When you reach the Old Outpost, you will need to
     battle the Harpies.  Harpies are not very tough to defeat and there is
     nothing special about the Harpies here, so this shouldn't be too hard of a
     quest.  When you have defeated the Harpy, your mission is complete.
    
     Reward:  +120 Gold, +50 Experience

     Side Quest:  Troll Trouble
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Location:  Gallia
    
     Requirements:  Have completed the Story Quest The Prisoner
    
     Info:  An old Troll, Egor the Aged, has been blocking a bridge on the River
        Maethel, causing trouble for all who pass by.  You must chase him away.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Egor's Bridge (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     You will need to go on a Troll hunt and get rid of him to allow people to
     cross over the river.  Of course, when you're dealing with a Troll, the
     first place you should look is a bridge.  The bridge in question is just
     north of Maethelburg, which is aptly named Egor's Bridge.  When you reach
     the bridge, you must battle the Troll.  This Troll has some armor on him in
     the form of a Scale Helm and also has a higher Cunning than most Trolls.
     Furthermore, since you are fighting a Troll, you must deal with their
     ability to use the skill Regeneration.  Try to keep Egor's Blue Mana in
     check to prevent him from using this skill that much.  When the Troll is
     defeated, your quest is complete.

     Requirements:  Have completed the Story Quest The Prisoner

     You must go find a dragon, although I'm not sure if you really want to meet
     up with a dragon right now.  The cave where the dragon normally is located
     at is north of Drakenburg.  Make your way over there and search for the
     dragon.  You will run into a pack of Wolves that have taken over the cave.
     Defeat the leader of the pack and the Wolves will scatter.  Well, there's no

     Info:  Necromancers in Skellheim have stolen Catapults and threaten to

     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Apparently, Necromancers are in need of catapults.  I guess that whole
     Undead thing doesn't work as well as they thought it would.  Either way, you
     will need to travel to Skellheim, with is just east of Drakenburg, and
     defeat a Catapult.  Catapults aren't too hard to defeat and their skills
     aren't that powerful, so it should be a quick battle.  When the Catapult is
     defeated, make your way back to Drakenburg and receive your reward.  Some
     people use this quest to gain lots of gold, so you might want to consider
     running this quest a few times.

     At Drakenburg, when you accept this quest, simply challenge the Sea Serpent,
     which is apparently in the sewer system.  Sea Serpents can Spit Poison at
     you, which can poison you and blind you at the same time.  When you are
     poisoned, you will slowly lose life.  When you are blind, you cannot use any
     spells or skills.  When you have defeated the Sea Serpent, you quest is

        them this year.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Swamp Cave
    
     Completion:
    
     You are asked to give a gift to a dragon.  Well, first, you will need to
     find that dragon.  Make your way over to the Swamp Cave, which is home of
     the Swamp Dragon Embraxus, and search the cave.  While searching the cave,
     you will not find a dragon, but you will find a Troll.  This Troll is larger
     and stronger than most Trolls and also has the Rend skill.  Also, all Trolls
     have the Regeneration skill, which allows them to restore some of their
     health at the cost of Blue Mana, so you should probably try to make sure the
     Troll doesn't get very much Blue Mana.  Either way, when you have defeated
     the Troll, you find that there is no dragon in the area.  Well, since there 
     is no dragon here, you might as well just steal some treasure for yourself.

     Completion:
    
     Once again, you must deal with the problem of Orcs taking slaves.  This
     time, they are traveling through Northern Kor.  Northern Kor is just north
     of Dhun-Kor, so make your way there and approach the caravan.  You will have
     to face a huge Orc in Plate Armor.  And by Plate Armor, I mean everything,
     as in Full Plate Helm, Full Plate Armor, and Full Plate Boots.  The only
     skill Orcs have is Enrage, so the only thing that should stop you from
     making this a quick battle is the Plate Armor.  Still, this shouldn't be too
     hard.  When that Orc is defeated, the rest of the Orcs scatter and you have
     rescued the slaves.

     your way over to the Scorpions' Cave and defeat the Scorpions.  You will
     need to defeat two of them.  Giant Scorpions can Hide and also Poison you.
     Hide makes a creature deal double damage when attacking you.  You can knock
     an opponent out of their hidden status by dealing damage to them.  The first
     Giant Scorpion is a normal Giant Scorpion, but the second Giant Scorpion is
     bigger and has the Rend skill.  Either way, when you defeat both of the

     Places Unlocked:  Worm Cave (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     You will need to fight a giant worm that swallowed a treasure.  The Worm
     Cave can be found east of Bone Head.  Make your way over there and fight the
     Sandworm.  Sandworms can Hide, which allows them to deal double damage if
     they are hidden.  You can knock an enemy out of Hide by dealing damage to
     them.  Also, they have the skills Sinkhole and Swallow Whole, which can be a
     dangerous combination.  The Sinkhole skill will halve all your Mana except
     for Green Mana, which will be added onto the opponent's Green Mana.  With
     that Green Mana, that will power up the Swallow Whole skill, which deals
     direct damage to you.  If you rely on Mana other than Green, this might be a
     tough battle.  Either way, when you defeat the worm, you will find gold
     inside the worm.

     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Apparently, Gobshooters are something to be feared.  I mean, Goblins are bad
     enough, but for them to be falling from the sky, that's just ten times 
     worse.  You will need to make your way over to Snake Fang to destroy the
     Gobshooter they are making.  A Gobshooter is like a regular Catapult in the
     fact that they have the Besiege skill.  However, unlike regular Catapults,
     they have the Hurl Goblin skill, which destroys a gem at random and that gem
     has 20 times the effect.  This should not be a hard battle, even if both of
     their skills will some how magically find the +5 Skulls almost every time
     (random isn't so random apparently).  When the Gobshooter is destroyed, you
     receive your reward.  You can continue to go on this quest to eventually
     capture a Gobshooter in your Dungeon.

     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     A Goblin stole a skull from the Orcs.  The Orcs need you to find the Goblin
     and then retrieve the relic.  The Goblin is over at White Skull, so make
     your way over there.  When you reach White Skull and search for the Goblin,
     you will find he isn't there, but is still somewhere in Kor.  Continue to
     look for the Goblin, going to each of the places that are shining with stars
     and search for the Goblin.  Eventually, you will chase the Goblin to Drong's 
     Tower, which is a bad thing for the Goblin, because Drong is there and is 
     mighty hungry.  Drong ends up eating the Goblin, but he gives you the relic
     that the Goblin was holding.  Now, you can either keep the relic for
     yourself, or you can return it to Gruuldok.  If you want to return the
     relic, make your way over to Gruuldok and return it there to complete your

     Ar is a small area right in between the Horned Temple and Alfland, which

     Unfortunately, there is a huge road block in the way by the form of a Hill
     Giant.  The Hill Giant is found between the Horned Temple and Ar.  Defeating
     a Hill Giant is no easy task.  Hill Giants have lots of Battle and HP.
     Also, they have the Thump! skill which deals direct damage and the Stomp!
     skill, which can stun you and get rid of all the Green Gems on the board.
     Depending on your level, this might be a difficult battle to win.  If you
     manage to defeat the Hill Giant, you will continue on to Ar.  When you reach

     damage you deal to be taken from their Red Mana.  Also, they can cast the
     spell Fire Siphon, which drains your Red Mana and heals the Elemental.  If
     you've defeated the Elemental the first time, you should be able to defeat
     it the second time.  When the Fire Elemental is defeated, return back to the
     Horned Temple with the flame.  This will relight the Sacred Flame and your
     mission will have been completed.

     Requirements:  Have completed the Story Quest Skull of Sartek
    
     Info:  You must somehow replace the Orb you stole from the Elves of
        Silvermyr.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Dragon's Graveyard  (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     Sunspear detects that you are troubled over the whole deal with the Elves
     and the stealing of the Eyes of Sartek.  He suggests you make it up to them
     by providing them with the eye of a Dragon to replace the eye you stole.  In
     order to get an eye of a Dragon, you must head over to the Dragon's
     Graveyard, which is northwest of the Dragon Valley.  However, you end up
     getting jumped by a Dragon Spider in the process.  Dragon Spiders can
     inflict Poison with their attacks.  Also, they can use the Web spell which
     will stun you for a couple of turns and the Breathe Fire spell, which deals
     direct damage to you.  When you have defeated the Dragon Spider, you will
     find the eye you have been looking for.  Now, make your way over to
     Silvermyr.  Queen Titania will still be very upset at you for you reviving
     Sartek.  Apparently, Sartek is no friend of the Elves, but neither is Lord
     Bane or the Undead.  Apparently, even your gift of a new eye will not heal
     relations between you and the Elves.  Well, Elves were never big on doing
     things until it was too late to stop it.  Just leave the Elves to live in
     their deluded world as you go out and save their hides.
    
     Reward:  +260 Experience

     Gnolls have been seen at The Pike.  Your job is to get rid of the Gnolls

     relatively easy.  However, each time they match up Gold or Experience, they
     get stronger and more powerful due to their Gnoll Pack accessory.  Try to
     finish off the Gnoll as soon as possible in order to avoid having to deal
     with a much stronger opponent.  When the Gnoll is defeated, the rest of the
     Gnolls will scatter and your mission will be complete.

     Requirements:  Have completed the Story Quest Horns of Sartek
    
     Info:  You must travel to Arik's Arena to battle the Minotaur King and
        recover a magical helm.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Arik's Arena (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     According to Minotaur law, everything goes to the strongest fighter.
     Therefore, in order to get a magical helm away from a Minotaur King, you
     must defeat the Minotaur King and take the helm.  The Minotaur King in
     question can be found at Arik's Arena, which is south of Tusk.  When you
     reach Arik's Arena, challenge the Minotaur King.  Minotaur Kings are the
     same as Minotaurs except for the fact that they have the Berserk Rage spell
     which turns Red Gems into Skulls.  This particular Minotaur has the Freeze
     spell, which can turn Red Mana into Blue Mana, which almost completely makes
     the Berserk Rage spell useless.  Along with these two spells, the Minotaur
     King also has the Charge! skill, which takes out an entire row and deals
     damage to you, and comes equipped with a Great Axe, which gives him a 50%
     chance to take another turn if he deals damage to you.  You should treat
     this as a normal Minotaur battle except against a stronger Minotaur.  When
     you have defeated the Minotaur King, you receive the helm as your prize
     along with some Experience.
    
     Reward:  +250 Experience, Drowning Helm

     requested your presence.  Elistara tells you that it is very important and
     wants you to go right away.  Unfortunately, in your way will be a
     Doomknight.  Doomknights should be a common foe right now, so you should
     know how to dispatch one of these (it's mainly just throwing your best
     spells or looping anyways).  When you appear before the Queen, your smart
     mouth almost gets you in trouble with the Queen.  You receive a reward from
     the Queen as a thank you for your efforts in regards to the Skullguard Keep.

     your Red Mana to heal them.  When you defeat the first Fire Elemental, you
     must go to the second keep and defeat the second Fire Elemental.  When both
     Fire Elementals are defeated, you will be rewarded.

     Completion:
    
     You must head over to Ragnar's Coast and then battle a Frost Dragon.  This
     is probably one of the first Dragons you ever went toe to toe with.  Frost
     Dragons have four spells to go along with their high stats.  They have the
     Breathe Ice spell, which deals damage to you based on their Blue Mana.  To
     increase the power of this spell, they can use the Channel Water spell,
     which increase their Blue Mana.  Also, they have the Wing Buffet spell,
     which destroys all Yellow Gems on the board and stuns you, and the Tail Whip
     spell, which is a direct damage spell.  A potent foe indeed.  Because of the
     Frost Dragon's weapon and because of it's Wing Buffet spell, Yellow Mana may
     be hard to come by.  When you have defeated the Frost Dragon, you will
     receive some treasure it was guarding.

     Ragnar's Coast.  When you reach there, you can battle the Harpy Queen.
     Harpies have the ability to halve your Yellow Mana with the Swoop spell.
     Also, they have the Charm spell, which destroys all Skulls on the board and
     heals them based on that.  Finally, since this is the Harpy Queen, she is
     stronger and tougher than the other Harpies.  She has the Stun spell, which
     can prevent you from taking a couple of turns.  This spell is the one you
     need to look out for, as a couple of turns can turn into a long wait as they
     can set themselves up to match 4 and 5 gems in a row.  When the Harpy Queen
     is defeated, you will receive your reward.

     she can Poison you with her regular attacks and then Petrify you, which will
     stun you.  Finally, she has the Stone Gaze spell, which will turn Green Gems
     into Skulls.  When the Medusa is defeated, the people that were turned into

     you can now head north to the Lake of Blood.  You will end up running into
     the Baneguard and Lord Bane himself.  Lord Bane tells you that the Elves

     you fought in the previous quest except for the fact that they have a higher
     Battle and Morale skill and they have two more spells.  Those spells are
     Cleave, which destroys all Yellow Gems on the board and deals damage to you
     based off of that, and Bone Strike, which can reduce your Green Mana to 0.
     When the Baneguard Doomknight is defeated, make your way back to Ehlariel

     will be awarded the title of Iceguard.

     your way to the Lake of Blood and attack the caravan.  Dark Dwarves should
     be a common foe.  They can Duplicate your items and use them against you.
     They can also inflict the Fire Bomb status on you, which will deal damage to
     you if you have too much Red Mana.  Finally, their Flame Cannon is like a
     Catapults Besiege on steroids.  It will target four gems and destroy
     everything around them.  When the Dark Dwarf is defeated, the caravan will
     be stopped and you will receive your reward.

     over to the Lake of Blood and attack the Arboleth.  Arboleths can heal
     themselves whenever you cast a spell.  Furthermore, their spell set is
     designed to give them as much Mana as possible with Wild Magic and Consume
     Mana and then hit you hard with a Chaos Bolt, which is a direct damage
     spell.  Finally, they have a 10% Spell Resistance for all spell fields, so
     it may be difficult to cast a spell on them.  When the Arboleth is defeated,
     hopefully the rest will scatter and not return.

    The second classification of side quests are character side quests.  These 
    side quests are mainly centered around one of your companions.  Some of these 
    quests give you the chance to recruit the characters into your group, while 
    others are designed to flesh out the companions and complete their

    Not all of these side quests are centered around your companions.  Some of

     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Apparently, Darkhunter asked for the help of Khrona to gather information
     for him.  He's looking for an acquaintance in Northern Kor.  Northern Kor is
     north of Dhun-Kor, so make your way over there and search the area.  You
     will end up finding a Wight and having to fight it.  Wights can steal your 
     Red Mana and convert it to Blue Mana for them.  Also, if they have 30 Blue
     Mana, they can use their Spectral Force skill, which can make your miss a
     few turns, so avoid that if possible.  When the Wight is defeated,
     Darkhunter cannot find his acquaintance.  Since there is nothing else to do, 
     your quest is complete.

     More of Darkhunter's past is coming out.  Darkhunter needs to go to
     Maethelburg, the place where he is not allowed at, to talk to Lord
     Greythane.  Even though he isn't talking about his past still, something is
     bound to come out.  Anyways, make your way over to Maethelburg.  Lord
     Greythane is not exactly welcoming of Darkhunter and asks Darkhunter to
     leave.  Darkhunter refuses and still wants to talk, but Lord Greythane is
     beyond talking and sends a Knight to attack you.  The Knight has the skill
     Divine Right and Thrust, neither of which is anything to worry about, so
     this shouldn't be too hard of a battle.  When the Knight is defeated,
     Darkhunter decides to leave, still refusing to provide any information about
     this person named Liandra.  Once again, a quest for Darkhunter ends in
     failure.

     Places Unlocked:  Sartek's Maze
    
     Completion:
    
     Darkhunter's old acquaintance has decided to contact him about meeting up
     with him.  Darkhunter wants you to go and accompany him while meeting up
     with the old acquaintance.  The meeting place is an area called Sartek's
     Maze, which is west of Tusk.  When you get there, wait for the meeting.  You
     will see that Liandra will appear and have a pleasant conversation with
     Darkhunter.  By pleasant, I mean unexpectedly twisted.  Liandra has turned
     undead and has a new master who wants Darkhunter to become undead as well.
     Darkhunter refuses and Liandra promises to meet up with Darkhunter again.
     Now Darkhunter's story has gotten a little bit more interesting.

     Requirements:  Have Darkhunter in your party and complete the Story Quest
        Northern Tundra and the Side Quest Liandra's Offer
    
     Info:  Darkhunter has received another summons to meet with Liandra.  You
        must accompany him once again.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Skullguard Keep
    
     Completion:
    
     Liandra isn't finished with Darkhunter yet.  She says she wants to return to
     Darkhunter, but you and Darkhunter know better.  She wants to bring
     Darkhunter to the Undead side.  You will need to hide while Darkhunter talks
     to Liandra alone.  The meeting place is Skullguard Keep, which is north of
     Ylarie.  Make your way over to there and meet with Liandra.  Of course, it's
     a trap and of course, Liandra underestimated Darkhunter.  You jump out and
     attack Liandra to assist Darkhunter.

     |       Does damage equal to the Mana of a random Mana Reserve.  The       |
     |       respective Mana Reserve is reduced to zero                         |
     |                                                                          |
     | Tips:                                                                    |
     |    Liandra is quite the formidable foe.  Darkhunter knows how to pick    |
     |    his women well.  The Death Gaze spell cuts your Life Points in half,  |
     |    which means it won't kill you, but it is a nice opening move to set   |
     |    set you up for death.  The Soul Swap is there just in case you think  |
     |    you think you are doing better than she is.  The Charm spell will     |
     |    heal herself while the Chaos Bolt just gives her another way to kill  |
     |    you.  She also has a 25% Fire Resistance, which means that your Red   |
     |    Mana spells won't be working a fourth of the time.  Finally, her      |
     |    her equipment allows her to be all shades of annoying.  Her weapon    |
     |    will drain your hard earned Experience points, although luckily, it   |
     |    doesn't take too much of it away.  Her Death Shroud will cause random |
     |    +5 Skulls to appear on the board.  If anything, the only good thing   |
     |    about Liandra is that she is Undead, which allows Darkhunter to pop   |
     |    her for ten Life Points at the start of the battle.  At least he is   |
     |    doing something before letting you deal with his girlfriend.  You     |
     |    really should know better than to get into the middle of disputes     |
     |    between a man and his dead girlfriend.                                |
     +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     Darkhunter tells you that finally, Liandra can rest in peace.  There's just
     one more thing left to do in regards to Liandra.

     daughter, but this is something that must be done.  The journey will be long
     and there will be a bunch of random monsters in the way.  When you reach
     Maethelburg, Lord Greythane will first attempt to kick you and Darkhunter
     out of the Red Tower.  However, Darkhunter returns the ashes of Liandra to
     Lord Greythane.  Lord Greythane tells Darkhunter that he should be cursed

     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Khalkus apparently talked to the Ogres in Gluk, which is a feat unto itself,
     and heard about an Ogre Mage in Gork that has part of something called the
     Great Machine.  What the Great Machine does, no one knows, but Khalkus wants
     it badly, so help him out and head to Gork to get that part of the Great
     Machine.  Make your way north to Gork and battle the Ogre Mage.  Ogre Mages,
     when attacked, will cause a +5 Skull to appear at random.  They can also
     create Wildcards on the field, so also watch out for that.  When you have
     defeated the Ogre Mage, you will have found the part of the Great Machine,
     which apparently is just a metal gear.  Of course, Khalkus thinks this is
     the greatest thing since the dawn of creation, so as long as he is happy and
     quiet, the rest of the world should be happy.

     Completion:
    
     Khalkus is going crazy over finding parts for his Great Machine.  The second
     gear can be found in Alfland and is being held by a Centaur.  Apparently,
     curiosity is getting the better of you, so make your way over to Alfland and
     confront the Centaur about the Gear.  He won't give it to you without a
     fight, so you might as well fight him.  He is a regular Centaur, which means
     he has the Archery skill, which deals damage to you based on your Yellow
     Mana.  The more you have, the more damage you will take.  When you have
     defeated the Centaur, you will have the second gear, which turns out just to
     be another metal cog.  Of course, Khalkus is just going crazy over it, so
     let him have his moment with his gear and move on.

     Apparently, Khalkus has built a device that can locate pieces of the Great
     Machine.  The detector has picked up a piece that is located in the a Worm
     Cave.  Of course, with it being a Worm Cave, it means that there is a Worm
     in there.  The Worm you are fighting is the Sandworm.  Sandworms are nasty
     in the fact that they can use Sinkhole with will halve all of your Mana
     Reserves except for your Green Mana, which gets added on to the Sandworm's
     Green Mana Reserves.  This just sets up the Swallow Whole skill, which deals
     damage to you based on their Green Mana.  Furthermore, they can use the Hide
     skill, which when Hidden, an enemy will deal double damage.  The only way to
     get rid of the Hidden status effect is by hitting the enemy.  When the
     Sandworm is defeated, you will find the third piece of the Great Machine. 
     This time, it is more than just a cog.  Finally, something impressive is
     starting to build up.

     piece of the machine.  The detector is detecting the gear is at a Minotaur's
     Arena south of Tusk.  Khalkus thinks he can buy the gear from the Minotaur,
     but you probably know better than that.  Make your way to Arik's Arena and
     face off with the Minotaur King.  Minotaur Kings are the same as Minotaurs
     except they are stronger with more Life Points and have the Berserk Rage
     spell, which can turn Red Gems into Skulls.  When you have defeated the
     Minotaur King, according to Minotaur law, the strongest takes whatever he
     wants from the loser.  In this case, you want the Fourth Gear of the Great 
     Machine.

     Info:  You must help Khalkus find the fifth piece of the Great Machine.
    
     Places Unlocked:  
    
     Completion:
    
     Khalkus has detected the last piece of the Great Machine.  It is in a castle
     to the north that is owned by Dark Dwarves.  The castle is named Kal-Unger.
     Here, you will need to fight a Dark Dwarf to get the fifth gear.  Dark
     Dwarves are not about power.  They are more about cunning and using various
     methods to annoy you while dealing damage to you.  Dark Dwarves can
     Duplicate an item you own and equip it to themselves.  Granted, they are
     already decked out in a full set of Full Plate Armor, but if you have
     something they want, they can have it.  Also, they can use the spell Fire
     Bomb, which gives you the Fire Bomb status.  If your Red Mana gets above 12
     while you are under the Fire Bomb status, you will take five damage.
     Finally, they can cast the spell Flame Cannon, which is like a powered up
     version of Besiege that the Catapults use.  Flame Cannon destroys four
     random Gems, destroying everything around those Gems and providing the full
     effect of all Gems destroyed.  When the Dark Dwarf is defeated, Khalkus will
     inform you that a piece is missing off of the final gear.  The button that
     turns on the Great Machine is missing.  Looks like there is just one more
     thing left to do before you find out what exactly the Great Machine does.

     Places Unlocked:  
    
     Completion:
    
     You must find the button that starts up the Great Machine.  Of course
     Khalkus would rather talk about it than do something about it.  Hunt for the
     button in the city of Kal-Unger.  Another Dark Dwarf has the button.  This
     Dark Dwarf is the same as the Dark Dwarf you fought for the fifth piece,
     which means you have to deal with the spells Duplicate, Fire Bomb, and Flame
     Cannon.  When this Dark Dwarf is defeated, Khalkus almost has an orgasm
     after finally realizing that he has assembled the Great Machine.  What the
     machine does is anyone's guess, so just start up the machine and hope it
     works.  Khalkus asks for an old item that you may have.  You give him your
     Broken Shield that was given to you by your father so long ago during the
     first few quests.  When the Great Machine is done with the Shield, the
     Shield is better than new.  Why can't you do that with all of your items?

        creatures for him to eat.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Dragon Valley, Drong's Tower
    
     Completion:
    
     Drong, an Ogre, has heard about you and your exploits in fighting.  Drong
     doesn't fight, but he wants to hire you to find him a Dragon Spider so he
     can eat it.  Apparently, he likes eating exotic stuff and is willing to
     trade you a magical hat for one, so it's time to find a Dragon Spider.  The 
     Dragon Spider can be found in the Dragon Valley, which is north of Northern
     Kor.  When you reach the Dragon Valley, search for a spider.  Dragon Spiders
     can poison you and can also cast the Web spell, which stuns you, and can
     cast the spell Breath Fire, which can deal damage to you.  When the Dragon 
     Spider is defeated, make your way over to Drong's Tower to present him with
     the spider meat and receive your reward.

     Info:  Drong the Ogre is after some more food - this time it is a Troll.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Troll Hole (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     Drong has another item he wants to eat.  The next course, after Spider, is
     obviously Troll.  However, not just any Troll, but an Ice Troll, which
     you've fought before for Neehi.  Drong has been hanging around bad
     influences again.  Either way, this time he will offer to give you a magic
     stick, which seems like it's a downgrade from the magic helm you received in
     the past, but either way, it's time to find an Ice Troll.  The Ice Troll can
     be found in the Troll Hole, which is east of Alfland.  Ice Trolls are just
     like regular Trolls except for the fact that they have the Freeze spell.
     Just like regular Trolls, if they have a lot of Blue Mana, they will begin
     to use the spell Regeneration, which restores some of their life, which is
     very annoying.  When you manage to drain the life bar of the Ice Troll, take
     the carcass back to Drong's Tower and present the feast to Drong to complete
     your mission.

     Info:  Drong the Ogre is after some more food - this time it is a Wyvern.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Wyvern's Roost (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     Drong has something else on the menu.  Apparently, the troll meat isn't
     going down so easily, so now Drong needs something to wash it down with and
     a Wyvern's poison will do the trick just nicely.  Drong tells you that you
     can find a Wyvern in the Wyvern's Roost and has a magical stone for you if
     you get him the meat.  The Wyvern's Roost is south of Blood Moon, so make
     your way over there.  Wyverns can poison you and can also use the Rend
     spell, which deals direct damage to you and while allowing them to still
     take their turn.  When you have defeated the Wyvern, make your way over to
     Drong's Tower and give him the Wyvern to eat.  He will have a special
     request for you later on.
    
     Reward:  Wyrmblood Helm, +50 Experience

     Info:  Drong the Ogre has a special request for you.  There is something
        very unusual that he would like you get for him to eat.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Drong has one more thing that he would like to eat...for now.  What he wants
     to eat an Ogre, which is really weird, considering the fact that he is an
     Ogre himself and is surrounded by Ogres.  Either way, he will give you his
     magical hanky (which is probably very dirty) if you give him an Ogre to eat.
     You should find lots of Ogres in Gork, so make your way over to there and
     fight an Ogre.  Of course, to feed Drongs appetite, you will have to defeat
     a big Ogre.  Big Ogres mean they are stronger and tougher to defeat.  When
     you have taken the big Ogre down, make your way back to Drong's Tower and
     give him the Ogre.  Apparently, Drong's hanky is a rare cloak, so take it
     and move on with life.

     Completion:
    
     Drong is still not full yet.  He wants to eat a Sea Serpent.  He has heard
     they can be found at Drakenburg.  It's a long trip over there and you will
     probably run into all sorts of random monsters in your way.  If you complete
     the journey and get him the Sea Serpent, he has a surprise for you at the
     end.  Make your way over to Drakenburg, which is a very long trip.  When you
     finally reach Drakenburg, you will have to take on a Sea Serpent.  Sea
     Serpents can Spit Poison at you, which not only poisons you, but also blinds
     you.  When you have finally gotten the meat from the Sea Serpent, make the
     long trip back to Drong's Tower.  Again, you will probably end up facing
     many random monsters along the way.  When you finally reach the tower, Drong
     will have his feast of Sea Serpent.  When he is done, he will inform you
     that his surprise is that he is joining you on your quest as one of your
     companions.  Apparently, he wants to eat many things in this world (and he
     will, too), so you might as well just accept his companionship.

     Drong is all about eating everything and this time he has something weird he
     wants to eat.  Drong wants to eat a granite statue in the Valley of Kings.
     On your way to the Valley of Kings, you will probably get stopped by a
     Liche.  Liches can randomly create +5 Skulls when you deal damage to them,
     which can either be a good thing or a bad thing.  It's a good thing if you
     manage to get an extra turn and it's a bad thing if you don't.  Also, the
     Liche has the spell Death Gaze, which is kind of like the poor man's version
     of the Warrior skill Deathbringer.  When you make it to the Valley of Kings,
     Drong will have already eaten the statue.  How anyone can eat rock, I have
     no clue.

     Places Unlocked:  Volcano (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     Before, Drong was big into eating the meat of various creatures.  Now, it
     seems like Drong has a taste for rocks.  This time, the rock of choice is a
     volcanic rock from the Volcano.  Well, it's time to go back to the Volcano.
     Of course, when you are on the Volcano, you are probably going to run into a
     Fire Elemental.  Fire Elementals have the Wall of Fire spell, which
     redirects all damage you deal to the Fire Elemental to his Red Mana
     Reserves.  Also, they have the Fire Siphon skill, which can drain your Red
     Mana and heal the Fire Elemental.  Of course, you should be very well versed
     in fighting one of these, since you've had to do so to advance in the story.
     When the Fire Elemental is defeated, Drong will find some tasty volcanic
     rock and be satisfied...for now...

     Sandstone at the beach of Tirianin.  Unfortunately for you, it is being
     guarded by a Sea Serpent.  Well, you knew this wasn't just a quest to pick
     up a rock on the beach.  Sea Serpents can Spit Poison at you, which will
     Poison you and Blind you at the same time.  The Poison is bad enough, but
     Blind prevents you from using any skills or spells.  When the Sea Serpent is
     defeated, you will obtain the sandstone, which Drong will eat.  I wonder if
     you can cook the rocks?

     Lake of Blood and fight the Dark Dwarves for a diamond.  Dark Dwarves can
     Duplicate your equipment and use it against you.  They can also inflict you
     with the Fire Bomb status, which will deal damage to you if have too much
     Red Mana.  Finally, their Flame Cannon spell will randomly target four Gems
     on the board and destroy them and all the Gems around it.  Dark Dwarves,
     luckily, are not very powerful, so if you can get past all the annoying
     things they do, you can beat them pretty easily.  When the Dark Dwarf is
     defeated, Drong eats a diamond.  He ends up breaking a tooth on one.  Serves
     him right.  Some things are not meant to be eaten.  Some things are meant to
     be sold for lots of money.

     You will need to search for a Dragon named Umbra.  This Dragon is the Flame
     Dragon and his lair is northwest of the Dragonrealm.  Make your way to
     Umbra's Lair and then search the area.  You will not find a Dragon, but you
     will find a cousin of the Dragon, the Wyvern, hiding in the lair.  You will
     have to fight the Wyvern.  Wyverns can Poison you by attacking you.  Also,
     they have the Rend skill, which can deal direct damage to you while allowing
     the Wyvern to continue his turn.  Just use your strongest skills and spells
     to defeat the Wyvern and this shouldn't be too tough of a battle.  In the
     end, all you end up finding is some gold.

        he is still there.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Chilbain's Lair
    
     Completion:
    
     You will need to search for a Dragon named Chilblain, who is a Frost Dragon.
     The lair of Chilblain is northeast of the Dragonrealm.  Make your way over
     to Chilblain's Lair and politely enter (don't forget to knock).  While you
     are searching the lair for any signs of a dragon, you will end up running
     into a Frost Giant.  Frost Giants can use the Freeze Spell, which turns Red
     Gems into Blue Gems.  This allows their weapon, the Frostblade, and their
     spell, Frostbite, to both do more damage to you.  The Frostblade will add +1
     damage for every 2 Blue Gems on the board, so be careful of this.  The
     Frostbite spell will get rid of the Blue Gems on the battlefield and deal
     direct damage to you based on that.  Try to keep the Blue Gems on the
     battlefield to a minimum while you are fighting this opponent.  Also, the
     Frost Giant has the Stomp skill, which can stun you for a couple of turns.
     When the Frost Giant is dispatched of, you will find no signs of a Dragon,
     but you will find some of the Dragon's treasure horde.  I'm sure the Dragon
     won't mind you taking it.

     You will have to search the cave of the Swamp Dragon, Morass, for any signs
     of the Dragons or any clues on where the Dragons have gone.  Morass's Lair
     is southeast of the Dragonrealm, so make your way over to there.  When you
     search the lair, you will end up running into a creature called the Medusa. 
     Medusa can not only inflict Poison on you, but they can also Petrify you,
     causing you to miss two turns.  Missing turns is a bad thing, so you will
     want to try to avoid that.  Also, Medusas can turn Green Gems into Skulls,
     so try to make sure that there aren't too many Green Gems on the board.
     When you have defeated the ugly creature, you will not find any signs of the
     Dragons, but you will find some leftover treasure.  It's a nice consolation
     prize.

        anything that might be a clue as to the Dragons' whereabouts.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Flicker tells you that you have to keep searching.  While you don't agree
     with the fruitless search, you might as well try since you have nothing
     better to do right now, so you might as well look at all three lairs again.
     Make your way to Umbra's Lair first.  You will find a Minotaur here. 
     Minotaurs can destroy an entire row of gems and also wield Great Axes, which
     gives them a chance to take an extra turn whenever they deal damage to you.
     When the Minotaur is defeated, you will find Minotaur tracks leading from
     the lair into the mountains.  At Chilblain's Lair, you will find tracks of a
     large machine there.  At Morass' Lair, you will find a cog that belongs to a
     machine.  When you are done searching, make your way back to the Dragonrealm
     and find Flicker.  He will end up getting attacked by another Minotaur.
     It's just like the first battle with the Minotaur, so just use the same
     attacking method.  When the Minotaur is defeated, you and Flicker will come
     to the conclusion that the kidnapping of the Dragons is related to the
     kidnapping of the Humans, so you will need to find a way north to
     investigate further.  Flicker will join you in your quest to find out what
     is going on.

     Completion:
    
     Flicker and Elistara will have a conversation about the lost Dragons. 
     Flicker was able to sneak into the cave of an Undead Dragon and found Dragon
     tracks there.  Flicker thinks that is where the Dragons are being held
     captive.  Of course, the two of them want to go and find the clues for that.
     Make your way over to the Dark Stable, which is northwest of Bane's Citadel.
     When you get there, enter the cave.  You will come face to face with an
     Undead Dragon.  You've fought one of these before to get Elistara in your
     party.  The biggest problem with Undead Dragons are their Breathe Plague
     spell, which will really ruin your day.  Not only does it deal direct damage
     to you, it also gives you the Disease status for 20 turns.  That is a lot of
     turns to be losing Mana.  Other than that, they have the normal array of
     Dragon spells, like the Wing Buffet spell, the Tail Whip skill, and the
     Channel Air spell.  When you take down the Undead Dragon, you manage to
     release the Dragons that were held captive in the cave.  Unfortunately,
     Flicker's mother is not in the cave with them.  Flicker decides to ask
     Elistara if he can be her new mount, which she responds with yes.

     slave for them, so you must go over there and free her.  Make your way over
     to Kal-Unger and fight the Dark Dwarves for the right to Flicker's mom.  You
     should know by now that Dark Dwarves rely on annoying you rather than
     overpowering you.  Their Duplicate, Fire Bomb, and Flame Cannon spells are
     all designed to damage and annoy you indirectly.  When the Dark Dwarf is
     defeated, Flicker is finally reunited with his mother.  While his mother
     doesn't approve of him being a mount of a Dragonrider, she respects his
     decision to do so.  Now that's a caring mother.

     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Sunspear is worried about his age and wishes to find a worthy opponent to
     die in battle to, which is according to Minotaur tradition.  This is called
     the Age of Honor, which is when Minotaurs refuse to die to old age, but in
     glorious fashion in battle.  Sunspear thinks that a Frost Giant may be a
     worthy opponent, so he wishes you to fight one to see if it is a worthy
     opponent to die to.  Sunspear says that the Frost Giant can be found at the
     Giants' Walk.  You should be well aquatinted with a Frost Giant by now,
     since you should have battled one a couple of times dealing with Jarl and
     Jotun.  Frost Giants can cast Freeze, which turns all Red Gems to Blue Gems.
     This will power up their direct damage spell, Frostbite, and their weapon,
     Frostblade.  Frostblade deals more damage when there are more Blue Gems on
     the board.  When you have defeated the Frost Giant, Sunspear will inform you
     that maybe a Frost Giant isn't a good opponent to fall to.  He cannot be
     convinced from his chosen path, so you might as well just wait to find
     another foe.

     Sunspear wants to see how an Arboleth fights to see if he wants to make one
     of those his final foe.  An Arboleth can be found at the Bonebridge.  Make
     your way to the Bonebridge and start fighting the Arboleth.  You should have
     fought a couple of these by now, so you should know how to deal with these
     creatures.  Just remember that Arboleths have high spell resistance across
     the board, so you must be careful that your spells may be resisted.  After
     you defeat the Arboleth, Sunspear will inform you that the Arboleth would
     not be his final opponent because if the Arboleth defeats Sunspear, the
     Arboleth would absorb Sunspear's body and therefore, he would become part of
     that creature.  So the search continues for a strong opponent.

     Completion:
    
     Sunspear still needs to find a foe to fall to.  After all, he's not getting
     any younger.  Therefore, his next choice of an opponent is Ragnar, the
     second oldest Dragon in Etheria, next to Kelthurax.  Therefore, he needs you
     to fight one of Ragnar's children.  If you do that, Ragnar will surely
     appear and Sunspear can have his final battle.  To find one of Ragnar's
     children, you must head over to Ragnar's coast.  You will end up fighting a
     Frost Dragon.  Frost Dragons are fearsome foes.  They can deal massive
     damage to you with their Breathe Ice attack, which they can power up with
     their Channel Water spell  Also, they can stun you with their Wing Buffet
     Spell.  If that wasn't enough, they have another spell that deals direct
     damage to you, Tail Whip.  Plus, they have 20% Water Resistance to try to
     stop any spells you use that contain Water Mana.  Powerful foes indeed.  If
     this is just the child, the daddy must be very powerful.  When the Frost
     Dragon is defeated, Sunspear will tell you to leave and then return after
     one week.  You agree and leave Sunspear to fight Ragnar.  You will have to
     travel until the time in the game passes over one week.  When that happens,
     there will be swirling stars at Ragnar's Coast.  Make your way back to
     Ragnar's Coast and return for Sunspear.  Sunspear will be all ghostly, but
     he will not be Undead.  It will simply be his spirit that has returned to
     continue to guide you on your journey.  Sunspear's Spirit returns and joins
     as a companion.

     Side Quest:  Secret Message
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Location:  Horned Temple
    
     Requirements:  Have Princess Serephine in your party and have completed the
        Story Quest Eye of Sartek
    
     Info:  Princess Serephine receives a secret message from a friend at Enmouth
        asking for help.  You must travel to Enmouth to help Serephine's friend.
    
     Places Unlocked:  
    
     Completion:
    
     Princess Serephine apparently received word from one of her friends that she
     is in trouble and needs help.  Of course, whenever Princess Serephine wants
     or needs something, she turns on the charm and flattery to max.  You will
     need to travel to Enmouth and see what is going on there.  There won't be
     any swirling stars at Enmouth, but when you do reach Enmouth, you will get
     ambushed by Imperial Guards waiting on the return of Princess Serephine.
     They will kidnap Princess Serephine under the orders of her father, the
     Emperor of Enmouth, who is trying to force the wedding with the Trarg to
     continue.  Apparently her father is a more despicable human being that he 
     first exhibited, so the only way to make people like that learn that he
     can't have his way all the time is to make sure he doesn't get his way.
     First off, you will need to fight off the Imperial Guard he summons to kill
     you.  Imperial Guards are very well equipped and well armored.  Their
     Halberd is designed to finish you off if you get close to death.  Their
     skill Reinforcements will destroy all Gold Coins on the board and heal their
     life total based on the amount of Coins destroyed.  Also, they have the 
     Thrust skill, which will destroy one Gem on the board.  They will normally
     only use this skill on +5 Skulls, which is the smart thing to do.  When the
     Imperial Guard is defeated, you will find out that Princess Serephine is
     gone.  The Imperial Guards have taken her somewhere and you do not know
     where, although you should have a sneaking suspicion.

     Info:  You must travel to The Trarg and rescue Princess Serephine.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Once again, you must rescue Princess Serephine from a wedding she does not
     want to become involved in.  Princess Serephine is currently at The Trarg,
     which means you must first travel south.  Both paths should be blocked off
     by Wolves, so you will have to defeat one of them.  Wolves have the Rabid
     Bite skill, which inflicts the Disease status on you.  Disease can drain
     your Mana every turn you take, so it can be an annoying status.  Try to
     defeat the Wolf quickly to avoid losing your Mana that you have saved up.
     When the Wolf is defeated, the path to The Trarg is open.  Make your way to
     The Trarg and rescue the Princess.  You will have to defeat an Imperial 
     Guard first.  This Imperial Guard is the same as the one you fought before,
     with the good armor and the Reinforcement and Thrust skills.  When that
     Imperial Guard is defeated, Princess Serephine will flatter you for coming
     to rescue her.  What else is new?

     Requirements:  Have Princess Serephine in your party and have completed the
        Story Quest Ylarie Defense and Side Quest Shotgun Wedding
    
     Info:  Emperor Selentius has sent a legion of Imperial Guards to search for
        Princess Serephine and take her home to Enmouth.  Tread cautiously.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     The Emperor of Selentia won't let go of his daughter without a fight.  Time
     to put the cocky bastard in his place.  Elistara and the Elven Scouts have
     spotted Imperial Guards searching for the Princess up and down the coast.
     Begin moving between Eldros' Tower, Ylarie, and Tirianin.  You will
     eventually get jumped by an Imperial Guard.  Imperial Guards are well
     armored and have the spells Thrust and Reinforcements.  Reinforcements is a
     healing spell, which can be annoying.  However, other than that and high
     Battle and Life Points, this should be a straightforward battle.  When the
     first Imperial Guard defeated, you will have to defeat another Imperial
     Guard somewhere along the coastline.  When that Imperial Guard is defeated,
     that should be all that is guarding the coastline.  Unfortunately, the
     Emperor of Selentia is persistence.  Princess Serephine wants to throw him
     off the top of a very tall tower, but unfortunately, that's frowned upon in
     society.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Location:  Hyaan
    
     Requirements:  Have completed the Story Quest Tooth of Sartek
    
     Info:  You have found a Gnoll hiding in a hole in the ground.  You must try
        and find out what is wrong, and then help him.
    
     Places Unlocked:  
    
     Completion:
    
     You find a Gnoll hiding in a hole.  Apparently, instead of suspecting you as
     one of his enemies and shanking you, he decides to ask for your help.  He
     tells you that evil men are after him at The Pike.  You decide to help the
     paranoid crazy Gnoll.  Make your way over to The Pike.  If you have Princess
     Serephine in your party, she will inform you that the man chasing after the
     Gnoll is an assassin from the Selentine Empire, which is the empire Enmouth
     is in and where Princess Serephine is from.  Fight the stranger, who happens
     to be a Thief.  Thieves can Steal your Gold from you and use the Sneak
     Attack skill, which deals damage to you and allows them to continue their 
     turn.  Thieves don't seem hard to beat at first, but when they start using
     Sneak Attack three times a turn, then things can get rough.  When the Thief
     is defeated, make your way back to Hyaan and talk to the psycho Gnoll.  He
     decides that you are his best friend and that he will pay you 1000 Gold for
     helping him out.  Also, his name is Patch and he took things from the
     Selentine Empire.  Upon more questions asked, you find out that Patch took
     the Crown Jewels of Selentia.  No small petty theft here, which is why
     assassins are out to get Patch and which explains Patch's large stash of
     Gold.

     Completion:
    
     Well, you were never a big fan of the Selentine Empire to begin with, so you
     might as well help out Patch.  At least Patch is loyal to his friends. 
     Patch tells you that there are three more Assassins out to get him.  Patch
     offers to pay you another 1000 Gold for helping him out.  Good friends like
     him are hard to find.  The first Assassin can be found in Tusk.  The
     Assassin is a Thief, which means he's the same as the person you fought the
     first time for Patch.  You only need to watch out really for his Sneak
     Attack skill.  When that Thief is defeated, make your way south to Alfland.
     This is where the second Thief is located at.  He is the same as the first
     two Thieves you've dealt with.  The final Thief can be located at Dhun-Kor.
     He is just like the other three Thieves.  By now, you should be able to
     capture one of these Thieves.  When the third Thief is defeated, make your
     way back north to Hyaan.  Patch will remember that he doesn't know how to
     count and that there is one more after him.  Either way, he pays you for the
     three you have defeated.

     challenge the last Thief.  This Thief is just like all the other Thieves you
     have been fighting.  When this Thief is defeated, make your way back to
     Hyaan and talk to Patch.  As a thanks, he will join you as a companion, and
     he's a pretty good one too.  Stabbing seems to be his specialty and enemies

     Side Quest:  Wolf Pack
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Location:  Ylarie
    
     Requirements:  Have completed the Story Quest Northern Tundra
    
     Info:  A pack of wolves have been terrorizing the Elves at Tirianin.  You
        must chase the wolves away.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Iceguard Keep, Tirianin
    
     Completion:
    
     West of Ylarie is a port belonging to the High Elves.  That port is the city
     of Tirianin.  Recently, a bunch of Wolves have appeared and decided they
     want to terrorize the city.  Make your way over to Tirianin and fight the
     Wolf.  This is a normal Wolf, which means you must watch out for Disease
     from its Rabid Bite and Fear from its Howl.  Disease is worse than Fear
     because Disease can drain your Mana Reserves, which can prevent you from
     using your spells.  After the Wolf is defeated, he will question why you
     attacked him.  Because the game said you had to?  This Wolf is apparently a
     Winter Wolf, which means it can talk.  The Wolves used to live in the
     northern areas, but ever since a bunch of creatures drove them out, they had
     to come south to look for food.  You agree to help the Wolf get rid of the
     creatures.  However, you can either choose to chase away the Wolves from the
     city of Tirianin or you can go north to Iceguard Keep and attack the
     creature there.  If you choose to head north, then you will have to fight
     off the creature.  The creature just happens to be a Doomknight. 
     Doomknights have a few ways of killing you.  They can use the Burial spell,
     which will increase the number of Green Gems on the board.  With their Green 
     Mana, the Doomknight can either deal direct damage to you by using their
     Sword of Bane spell or they can hit you for higher damage using their Unholy
     Lance.  Finally, they have the Wake the Dead spell, which will turn Skulls
     on the field into +5 Skulls.  When the Doomknight is defeated, Winter will
     thank you for helping him and his pack reclaim his home.

     Places Unlocked:  Dragon Shrine (disappears eventually)
    
     Completion:
    
     After saving Winter's home, you'd think that would be the end of it.
     Unfortunately, Winter once again comes to ask you for a favor.  Apparently,
     the Doomknights returned and took two of Winter's cubs with them.  The cubs
     were taken to a Dragon Shrine, which is west of Iceguard Keep.  When you
     reach the Shrine, you will have to fight the Doomknight.  You should have
     already fought two of these before, so this fight should be nothing new.
     When the Doomknight is defeated, return back to Ylarie and return the cubs
     to Winter.  Apparently, Winter is going to name one of the cubs after your
     wolf name, which is Deathstalker.  Has a nice ring to it.

     Completion:
    
     Winter needs your help again.  The creatures are once again approaching the
     Wolves' land.  To stop them from entering their lands, you want to use the
     same spell protecting the Elven lands to protect the Wolves' land.  Since
     Queen Ehlanna likes you, you think she wouldn't mind.  Make your way over to
     Ehlariel and talk to Queen Ehlanna.  Queen Ehlanna will give you a stone
     that will protect the land of the Wolves for a short period of time.  When
     you leave Ehlariel, a Doomknight will be blocking your way.  Doomknights
     should be a familiar foe by now.  They can use the Burial spell to increase
     the Green Mana on the field.  More Green Mana means their Sword of Bane
     spell and the damage from their Unholy Lance will be more powerful.  When
     the Doomknight is defeated, make your way over to Ylarie.  When you give the
     Elvenstone to Winter, he will decide that he wants to join you as a
     companion to help stop the Undead problem.

     during a battle with Lord Bane's enemies.  Elistara wants you to help you.
     Bloodstone is northeast of Skullguard Keep, so make your way over to there
     and search for any clues of Elistara's lost Dragon.  While searching for the
     Dragon, you will get jumped by an Arboleth.  You should have fought an
     Arboleth, so just do the same thing you've done in the past.  Just remember,
     Arboleths have 10% spell resistance across the board, so it might be hard to
     hit the creature with a spell.  When the Arboleth is defeated, you will not
     be able to find any signs of the dragon.  Return back to Elistara and report
     to her what has happened.

     Completion:
    
     Elistara still wants to find her Dragon.  She gives you information that may
     help you with your search.  You decide to search around Skullguard Keep for
     the lost Dragon.  There will be no signs at Skullguard Keep, so head north
     to the Bonebridge.  Again, there will be nothing there.  However, you will
     find Bane's Citadel off in the distance.  Make your way over there and
     search for the Dragon.  Lord Bane will appear to you personally and inform
     you of what happened to Crystal.  He has turned Crystal into an Undead
     Dragon.  Undead Dragons may just be the strongest form of Dragons out there.
     Their Breathe Plague spell is downright nasty.  Not only does it deal direct
     damage equal to the Dragon's Yellow Mana, but it will also inflict the
     Disease status effect for 20 turns.  Disease will slowly drain your Mana
     Reserves, which will severely limit what you can and cannot do.  Combine
     this with their high Air Resistance, their Wing Buffet spell, which can stun
     you, their Tail Whip spell, which is another form of direct damage, and
     their Channel Air spell, which will increase the power of their Breathe 
     Plague spell, and you have a very powerful foe on your hands.  Try to defeat
     the Undead Dragon as quickly as possible and before he can hit you with the
     Breathe Plague spell.  When the Undead Dragon is defeated, you will have to
     return to Elistara with the unfortunate news.  If Elistara wasn't determined
     to beat down Lord Bane before, she is now.

     Elistara now has a duty to return to the Dragonrealm and inform the parents
     of Crystal her passing.  Unfortunately for her, there is only one Dragon
     left in the Dragonrealm and that Dragon isn't very friendly.  Still,
     Elistara wants to go see Kelthurax and inform him of Crystal's demise.  It's
     her funeral, so make your way back to the Dragonrealm.  It will be a long
     journey and there will probably be lots of random monsters in your way. 
     When you finally reach the Dragonrealm, you will find that the Dragons are
     still missing, but standing at the entrance to the Dragonrealm is an Iron
     Golem.  Iron Golems can gain Green Mana every time you damage them.  Then,
     they can turn around and use this Green Mana to cast a spell called Iron
     Strike.  Iron Strike is a very powerful spell that will cause all Green Gems
     on the board to explode.  When the Green Gems explode, they take out the
     surrounding Gems and the Iron Golem gets the effects of all the Gems
     destroyed.  In other words, if there is a lot of Green Gems on the board,
     the Iron Golem can get all the Mana on the board while you eat all the
     damage.  Luckily, the Iron Strike spell takes up a lot of Mana to cast, so
     you should be able to down the big fellow before he gets enough Mana to cast
     the spell.  When the Iron Golem falls, Elistara makes the unwise move of
     waking up Kelthurax.  After telling Kelthurax about Crystal, Elistara
     decides to try to make Kelthurax her mount.  Bad move, but somehow,
     Kelthurax lets Elistara leave with all of her body parts in tact.  Lucky
     her.  After Kelthurax tells Elistara to scram, Elistara becomes your
     companion.

     Side Quest:  Reagent Hunt
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Location:  Gruuldok
    
     Requirements:  Have completed the Story Quest Lord of Orcs
    
     Info:  Neehi, the Goblin Trader, needs a brave person to go and collect some
        spell components.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Troll Hole (disappears eventually), Wasp Hive
    
     Completion:
    
     Neehi is a Goblin Trader that requires some spell components.  He needs some
     Wasp Wings and Ice Troll Hair.  The Wasp Wings can be found at the Wasp Hive
     and the Ice Troll Hair can be found in the Troll Hole (makes sense).  Of
     course, you aren't just going to be given both of these items from their
     respective creatures.  Instead, you will have to kill these creatures and
     obtain the spoils from the dead bodies.  First, get the Wasp Wings.  The
     Wasp Hive can be found east of White Skull.  When you get there, enter the 
     hive.  Giant Wasps have an 80% chance of Poisoning you when they attack, so
     be careful of that.  When you have defeated the Giant Wasp, it is time to
     get some hair from an Ice Troll.  The Ice Troll can be found inside of a
     Troll Hole, which is north of Theira and east of Alfland.  The Ice Troll is 
     just a version of the regular Troll except they have the Freeze spell, which
     you shouldn't worry about too much.  Just treat this as a regular battle
     against a Troll, which means don't let them get too much Blue Mana or they 
     will Regenerate most of their health back.  When the Ice Troll is defeated, 
     make your way back to Gruuldok and receive your reward.  Neehi will offer to 
     give you more quests in the future.

     Soultree.  Simply make your way over to Theira and get the Theiran Axe-head
     and then make your way over to Silvermyr and get the Soultree Limb.  There
     is nothing to fight other than the random monsters in your path.  When you

     to keep the axe at Gallia or take the axe all the way back to Gruuldok to

     Neehi will pay you for Wasp Stingers.  The Wasps can be found at the Wasp
     Hive.  Just maybe if you ask nicely into the mic on your DS, the Giant Wasps
     will give you his stinger for free, but odds are, you will have to kill them
     and then take it off of their dead corpses.  Giant Wasps can poison you by
     just dealing damage, so try to avoid getting hit by them.  When you have the 
     Giant Wasp Stinger, make your way back to Gruuldok and give the stinger to
     Neehi.  He will reward you.

     teacher for you in the ways of the axe.  Make your way north to Tusk and
     talk to Red-Axe.  He will at first want to attack you, but once you drop
     Tauron's name, he calms down a little.  Still, he wants proof that you are a
     Firewalker and will summon a Fire Elemental to attack you.  You should know
     the Fire Elemental very well by now.  When the Fire Elemental is defeated,
     Red-Axe will compliment your strength, just not your skill.  He will agree

     must observe the Wyvern's tail and its motion and how it attacks.  When he
     is done with his explanation, you will need to travel to the Wyvern's Roost
     in Kor, which is southwest of Blood Moon.  When you reach the Wyvern's
     Roost, you will need to fight a Wyvern.  The Wyvern you will be fighting has

     normal.  Other than that, Wyverns can inflict Poison and also can use the
     Rend spell, which deals direct damage without wasting a turn.  When the
     Wyvern is defeated, make your way back to the city of Tusk and report to

     |    Red-Axe has a very high Life Point and a high Battle Skill.  Also,    |
     |    most of the skills he has are direct damage skills.  However, Red-Axe |
     |    should crumble to most of your strongest spells and skills if you     |
     |    been building your character properly.  Just make sure you defeat him |
     |    before he can deal too much direct damage to you, as he will probably |
     |    ping you to death if you give him a chance to.                        |
     +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
     When you have defeated Red-Axe, he will bow to your skills and declare you a

     Side Quest:  The Invitations
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Location:  Tusk
    
     Requirements:  Have completed the Story Quest Horns of Sartek
    
     Info:  You must deliver an invitation to two Giants, Jarl and Jotun.  They
        have been invited to attend a tournament in Tusk.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Blackhoof, Giant's Walk, Jarl's Keep, Jotun's Keep
    
     Completion:
    
     You will have to send invitations personally to Jarl and Jotun.  They both
     preside over their own keeps, which you can take over and gain money from. 
     Jarl is a Frost Giant and Jotun is a Fire Giant, which means they are very
     temperamental and hard to deal with.  Furthermore, their keeps are defended
     by another giant.  Make your way over to Jotun's Keep first and defeat the
     Fire Giant that is in front of it.  Fire Giants can use the skill
     Conflagration to increase the number of Red Gems on the board.  Once that
     happens, their weapon, the Flameblade, can deal more damage to you and their
     spell, Rain of Fire, can deal more direct damage to you.  Also, they have
     the Stomp! skill, which can stun you for a couple of turns.  Finally, they
     have decent stats and a 30% Fire Resistance.  When you defeated the Fire
     Giant, deliver the invitation to Jotun.  Now, make your way over to Jarl's
     Keep next.  Don't expect things to get any easier when dealing with the
     Frost Giant.  It's almost the same thing as the Fire Giant.  Instead of the
     spells Conflagration and Rain of Fire, it's the spells Freeze and Frostbite
     and instead of the Flameblade, it's a Frostblade.  Finally, they have 30%
     Water Resistance instead of 30% Fire Resistance.  Just do the same thing you
     did with the Fire Giant with this Giant.  If you are having problems
     defeating either of the two Giants, you may want to hold off until later to
     complete this quest, as the quests that will follow this one will involve
     much of the same.  When the Frost Giant is defeated, deliver the invitation
     to Jarl and head back to Tusk.  You will receive your reward.

     Jarl is looking for his Hammer and he knows who took it.  Apparently, Jotun
     the Fire Giant, his rival, has stolen Jarl's Hammer and he wants it back.
     He has recruited you to get it for him.  This will begin the long process of
     stealing and retrieving and fighting Giants.  Make your way over to Jotun'
     Keep and knock on Jotun's Door.  Jotun won't just hand you the Hammer.
     Instead, he will fight you to keep the Hammer and use the Hammer against
     you.  You should know what Fire Giants do by now.  They have the
     Conflagration spell, which turns gems of a selected type to Red Gems.  This
     will power up their Rain of Fire direct damage spell.  However, because
     Jotun is using Jarl's Hammer against you, he will not be wielding a
     Flameblade.  Jarl's Hammer deals damage to you whenever Jotun gets Blue
     Mana, so he will be damaging you this way also.  When the Fire Giant is
     bested, you will have taken Jarl's Hammer.  Return to Jarl's Keep and return
     the hammer to its owner.

     Side Quest:  Jotun's Helm
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Location:  Jotun's Keep
    
     Requirements:  Have completed the Side Quest Jarl's Hammer
    
     Info:  Jarl the Frost Giant has stolen Jotun's Helm.  You must find and
        return it.
    
     Places Unlocked:  None
    
     Completion:
    
     Apparently, Jotun took Jarl's Hammer because Jarl took Jotun's Helm.  Well,
     it's time to make a trip over to Jarl's Keep and to get back the helm.  Jarl
     is a Frost Giant, which means you will have to deal with the Freeze spell,
     which turns Red Gems into Blue Gems.  This goes well with their Frostbite
     spell, which deals damage to you based on the Blue Gems on the board.  He
     also has the Stomp! skill, which will stun you for a turn.  Finally, Jarl is
     equipped with Jotun's Helm and Boots, along with his own Hammer.  Other than
     the equipment, Jarl is just a normal Frost Giant.  When Jarl is defeated,
     make your way back to Jotun's Keep and return the Helm.

     Location:  Jarl's Keep
    
     Requirements:  Have completed the Side Quest Jotun's Boots
    
     Info:  You must try to put an end to Jarl and Jotun stealing each others'
        things.
    
     Places Unlocked:  Weret
    
     Completion:
    
     This has got to stop.  Otherwise, you'd never get on with the story.  First,
     talk to Jarl about getting the brothers to stop stealing things from each
     other.  Jarl will inform you that if Jotun signs an agreement on Griffonskin
     parchment, Jarl will agree to stop the feud.  He will tell you that you can
     find some Griffonskin parchment from a merchant in Kor.  Make your way over
     to Jotun's Keep and talk to him now.  Jotun says he will agree to a cease
     fire if Jarl signs the agreement in Medusa's Blood.  Apparently, you can
     find a Medusa outside of the village of Weret.  You tell both Jarl and Jotun
     that the agreement point will be at the Giant's Walk.  First, make your way
     over to Weret and find the Medusa.  Medusas can cast the Petrify spell,
     which stuns you.  Also, they can Poison you with their attacks and turn
     Green Gems into Skulls with their Stone Gaze skill.  When the Medusa is
     defeated, you will find the blood from the Medusa.  Now, it's time to get
     the Griffonskin parchment.  You can find the merchant in question in
     Gruuldok.  The path to Gruuldok is probably filled with lots of random
     creatures, so it might take a while to get to Gruuldok.  When you reach
     Gruuldok, Neehi is the merchant in question.  He will give you the parchment
     for 100 Gold.  When you have the Griffonskin, make your way back to the
     Giant's Walk and have the two giants sign the agreement.  When they have
     signed the agreement, they will get into another argument.  At the end of
     the argument, you will end up getting all the equipment that you were
     stealing and returning.
    
     Reward:  Jarl's Hammer and Cloak, Jotun's Helm and Boots

    Throughout the game, you will come across various people with various 
    personalities.  Helping these people will gain their respect and cause them 
    to want to join your party.  At the start of a battle, if the right 
    conditions are met, your companions will increase your abilities or decrease 
    your opponent's abilities or Life Points, giving you the edge in the battle.  
    There are nine companions in all (ten if you count Sunspear's two modes), but 
    you can only have eight in your party, which means at the end, you will have 
    to make a choice of who you want in your party.

      PQUSTRUC           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    Structures are buildings you can build inside of your citadel.  Your citadel 
    is very important, as it allows you to gain skills, forge new items, and 
    improve your skills.  You will want to focus on building all the structures 
    inside of your citadel as soon as possible, as you will notice the benefits 
    of having a completed citadel immediately.
    
    
    Dungeon:
       Cost:  250 Gold
       Prerequisites:  None
       Effect:  A Dungeon allows you to capture enemies and ride captured mounts.
          To capture an enemy, you must have defeated them in battle three times
          beforehand.  The fourth time you fight the enemy, along with fighting
          the enemy and canceling the battle, you will be given the option to
          capture the enemy.  You will be given a puzzle that you will need to
          solve.  To solve the puzzle, you must clear the board of all gems.
          Zaraf has created Monster Capture Solutions on GameFAQs, which can help
          you capture the monsters.
    
    Mage Tower:
       Cost:  400
       Prerequisites:  Dungeon
       Effect:  A Mage Tower allows you to learn spells from captured enemies.
          This will unlock the Research Spells option.  More on this option can
          be found in Chapter 10 of this guide.
    
    Stable:
       Cost:  500
       Prerequisites:  Dungeon
       Effect:  A Stable allows you to train mounts and increase their
          effectiveness in combat.  This will unlock the Train Mounts option.
          More on this option can be found in Chapter 11 of this guide.
    
    Forge:
       Cost:  600
       Prerequisites:  None
       Effect:  A Forge allows you to create new magic items.  This will unlock
          the Forge Items option.  More on this option can be found in Chapter 12
          of this guide.
    
    Siege Workshop:
       Cost:  800
       Prerequisites:  Forge
       Effect:  A Siege Workshop allows you to attack and capture other cities on
          the map.  A captured city allows you to access your citadel from that
          city, along with gaining gold every month when you pass through the
          city.  More on this option can be found in Chapter 13 of this guide.
    
    Temple:
       Cost:  1000
       Prerequisites:  None
       Effect:  A Temple allows you to improve your Hero's skills.  This will
          unlock the Improve Skills option.  To do so, you must donate money to
          the temple, which requires gold.  The higher your skill is, the more
          money it costs to raise it up one point.
    
    Towers:
       Cost:  1250
       Prerequisites:  None
       Effect:  Towers reduce the chance of rebellion in your captured cities by
          50%.  If a city rebels, you will be unable to do anything in that city
          until you re-siege the city and capture it back.  With a Tower, your
          cities will hardly ever rebel.
    
    Vault:
       Cost:  1500
       Prerequisites:  None
       Effect:  A Vault increases Gold income from captured cities by 50%
    
    Statues:
       Cost:  2500
       Prerequisites:  None
       Effect:  Statues grant you a special award - King or Queen - which
          improves your Morale by +5.  This should be the last structure you
          should focus on getting, since it costs the most and really doesn't
          affect you that much.

      FAQ/Walkthrough   \   10. Research Spells
      PQURESEA           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    When you have a Dungeon and a Mage Tower, you will gain the ability to 
    research spells learned from captured enemies.  To capture an enemy, you must 
    have defeated them three times.  On the fourth time, you will be given the 
    option to capture them.  You must then solve a puzzle in which you need to 
    eliminate every gem on the board.  If you do not, you will have to try again.  
    To solve these puzzles, you can use Zaraf's Monster Capture guides on 
    GameFAQs.  I personally have tried every one of these and think that the 
    guides are really well done.  When you have captured an enemy, you will be 
    able to use the Research Spell option inside of your citadel to gain the 
    spell and add it to your list of spells.  When you are researching a spell, 
    you will go to your familiar battle grid.  However, you will not be facing an 
    opponent.  Instead, you will be simply trying to clear a certain amount of 
    Gems and Scrolls.  There are special rules involving this game.  They are 
    found on the top screen, but I have also listed them here.
    
    
    4-of-a-kind:  Gives double points and generates a scroll.
    5-0f-a-kind:  Gives triple points and generates two scrolls.
    Heroic Effort:  On a cascade of five or higher, the board is cleared of
       Purple Stars, Gold Coins, and Skulls.
    Special:  If you complete a category, it clears the board of matching gems.
    Defeat:  You lose if there are no moves left.
    
    
    The only way you lose is if there are no moves left.  However, the longer you 
    take, the more inclined the game is to not help you.  Also, scrolls will not 
    randomly appear.  They only appear if you get a four or five of a kind.  
    Therefore, you want to focus on getting the scrolls first.  Also, another 
    thing you want to focus on is getting the highest number of gems.
    
    There are four levels of spells you can obtain.  There is Easy, Moderate, 
    Hard, and Very Hard.  Obviously, Very Hard spells can take a long time to get 
    and you will probably end up failing more times than not.  Also, they have 
    the highest Gem and Scroll totals to get rid of.
    
    I have separated the spells in this section by their difficulty.  I have also 
    listed what monster you need to capture for that spell and the Gems and 
    Scrolls you need to clear in order to obtain the spell.

      FAQ/Walkthrough   \   11. Mounts
      PQUMOUNT           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    You can obtain mounts when you build both a Dungeon and a Stable, you will be 
    able to ride mounts, once you capture some.  Capturing a mount is the same as 
    capturing an enemy.  After you have fought an enemy three times, the fourth 
    time you encounter the enemy, you will have another option other than 
    fighting the enemy and canceling the battle.  You will be given a chance to 
    capture the enemy.  Just like with capturing other enemies, you must solve a 
    puzzle in order to capture a mount.
    
    Also, you can train your mounts to increase their effects and give you a 
    better chance of avoiding random enemy encounters.  When you click on the 
    Train Mount option, you will be given the list of your current mounts.  When 
    you train a mount, you must battle a mount of a certain level.  However, the 
    battle is not a normal battle.  It is a timed battle, meaning that you have a 
    certain amount of time to make your move or you will take 5 points of damage 
    as if you have performed an illegal move.  The time will slowly decrease 
    every time you train a mount until you reach three seconds per move, which 
    means you will not have very much time in order to make your move.
    
    There are seven mounts you can capture.  Each one has a different speed, 
    spell that they give you, and effect that you benefit from.  Finally, you do 
    not need to Research Spells from the mounts.  You simply get them when you 
    are riding the mount.  It is the last spell on your list of spells when you 
    enter battle.

      FAQ/Walkthrough   \   12. Forge Items
      PQUFORGE           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    When you build a Forge, you will have the ability to Forge Items.  In order 
    to forge an item, you will need three runes.  The first rune is the Base 
    Rune.  These runes determine what item you will have.  Also, these runes have 
    special skills that they provide to your item, normally involving your 
    statistical skills, damage, or Mana Reserves.  Second, you need a Modifier 
    Rune.  Modifier Runes increase the effectiveness of both the Base Rune and 
    the third type of rune, the Power Rune.  Power Runes add special abilities to 
    your forged items, normally dealing with various other things such as your 
    starting Mana and your Spell Resistances.
    
    Just like Researching Spells, you will be taken to a special Battle Grid 
    where it will be just you playing.  However, the goal and the rules for 
    Forging Items is different.  The goal is to match a certain amount of Hammers 
    & Anvils, which is indicated off to the left hand side of the bottom screen.  
    The rules for this game can be found on the top screen and also listed below.
    
    
    4-of-a-kind:  Destroys a row or column.
    5-0f-a-kind:  Destroys all gems of matching type and a row or column.
    Heroic Effort:  On a cascade of five or higher, creates a random Hammer &
       Anvil on the board.
    Special:  After Hammers & Anvils are destroyed, the board resets.
    Defeat:  You lose if there are no moves left.
    
    
    This seems easier than the Spell Research, and it normally is.  The best way 
    to get rid of a Hammer & Anvil is to either use a +5 Skull to get rid of one 
    or to clear a row or a column that has one in it using a four or five of a 
    kind.  Also, if you manage to match three Hammers & Anvils together, you will 
    get credit for all three of them.  Just like the Spell Research, you lose the 
    game if there are no more moves left on the board.  Typically speaking, the 
    longer you play, the more likely the game will no longer give you any moves 
    to make.  Finally, when you match a Hammer & Anvil, the entire Battle Grid 
    clears and resets, which can sometimes randomly set up a four or five in a 
    row for you and randomly clear out a Hammer & Anvil without you even trying.
    
    You start off with three Runes in your inventory.  However, once you have 
    built a Forge, you can obtain more.  Scattered across the map, normally at 
    points that are not cities or special dungeons, are Runekeepers.  You will 
    know if a Runekeeper is at a place if you tap on the place and see the option 
    to Search for Runes in that area.  In order to obtain the Rune from that 
    area, you must fight a Runekeeper.  Runekeepers are special versions of 
    monsters you will fight throughout the game.  These Runekeepers have two 
    items on them, called the Runekeepers Tome and the Runekeepers Key.  These 
    two items combined will increase their Mana Reserves and in turn, increase 
    the damage they can deal to you.  I have listed in this guide all of the 
    Runes, what they do, where to find them, and who you have to defeat in order 
    to obtain the Rune.

      FAQ/Walkthrough   \   13. Sieges
      PQUSIEGE           \_______________________________________________________
    
    
    When you build a Forge and a Siege Workshop, you will be given an option of 
    besieging a city whenever you come across them.  Laying siege a city is no 
    small task and will be difficult to accomplish until you are decently skilled 
    in battle.  When you have captured a city, you will obtain gold when you pass 
    through that city (provided that you haven't obtained gold from that city 
    from that month) and you will have access to your citadel in that city.
    
    Cities you capture can rebel, meaning you will not be able to do anything in 
    that city at all, such as quest or visit the tavern.  However, you can re-
    siege the city to take it back over and calm the city down.  Building a Tower 
    will decrease the chances of a city rebelling.
    
    I have listed below each city, in alphabetical order, and listed their 
    equipment that they will have when you siege that city.

    Q:  I am currently on the Story Quest Crest of Sartek and am unable to enter
       the Red Tower or Maethelburg.  How do I do so?
    
    A:  You cannot enter the city of Maethelburg with Darkhunter in your party.
       You will need to enter your Hero Inventory menu and remove Darkhunter from
       your party.  You can pick him up in the city of Gallia when you are done
       at Maethelburg.
