    Hello there! This FAQs primary purpose is to provide helpful information about
    PUZZLE QUEST: cHALLENGE OF THE WARLORDS. This guide covers each quest and 
    sidequest and how to unlock everything in the game, and deal with those pesky
    bosses! This guide will NOT show you how to play (see the game's tutorial),
    but it will tell you useful and important information. Problems? Expressions
    of joy? Death threats? Post to me on the DS Puzzle Quest message boards.
    This guide is split into 4 parts, based on the four realms/cutscenes in the
    PART 1 - The Agarian Realm
    PART 2 - The Kor Realm
    PART 3 - The Realms of War
    PART 4 - The Realm of Death

    PART 1 - The Agarian Realm
    Bartonia, Homeland of the Agarian Knights
    ! Family Reunion
      * You get the Broken Shield (10% chance of preventing 1 damage when dealt
       2+ damage) for completing this quest. 
    ! Practice Dummy (repeatable until after The Missive)
    ! Advanced Combat (repeatable until after The Missive)
    ! The Missive
      * This quest will be completed with either success or failure, with a 
       different conversation for each. You get a longsword (+4 to Battle) for
       completing this quest. 
    ! Rogue Skeleton
      ? Beneath Gildor
        * You get the Rat King's Helm (+3 to gold when you match blue gems) for
         completing this quest.
      ? Patrol Duty (repeatable)
      ? Spider Bait
      ? Bats in the Belfry (level 6)
      ? Father and Son (level 11)
        * You get Erik's Bow (+1 damage plus an additional +1 for each 5 character
         levels) for completing this quest. Hang on to this.
      ? Ogre Twins (level 11)
    ! Darkhunter
      * Starting this quest unlocks Gallia.
    Gallia, Citadel of the Borderlands
    ! Helping Hand
      * Starting this quest unlocks Drakenburg sidequests.
    ! The Prisoner
      * You have a choice here. Releasing the necromancer will result in him
       giving you Sir Ector's Sword (50% chance a random skull appears after 
       matching purple stars). This Sword is needed for the alternate ending!
       Bringing him to the Riverguard gets you some gold. Afterwards, Darkhunter 
       will join your party (10 damage against undead at start of combat).
      ? Troll Trouble
    Bartonia, Revisited
    ! Rescue Mission (level 8)
      ? Imperial Message
        * Completing this quest unlocks Enmouth sidequests.
        ? Knightly Orders (unlocked by Imperial Reply)
          * You can join any one of the five houses. Each one gives a different 
           stat bonus. Bartonia gives you +2 to Battle, Siria gives you +3 to 
           Morale, Theiria gives you +2 to Fire Mastery, Gildor gives you +2 to
           Cunning, and Elenia gives you +2 to Earth Mastery.
    ! None Shall Pass
        * Completing this quest unlocks Silvermyr sidequests. Make sure you equip 
         the Lichebane Charm Darkhunter gives you. You don't get to keep it 
         though -_-
    ! Dwarven Caravan
      * Starting this quest unlocks Dhun-Kor. Khalkus will join your party 
       (+10 Battle against constructs) after the first fight.
      B - Dugog (Boss)
        * This guy is easily the hardest boss in the game, given your low level. 
         His extra head gives him an extra turn EVERY time he gains gold, so keep 
         it away at all costs. Try to keep red and yellow mana away as well, 
         because Double Roar can easily be a knockout blow. I STRONGLY suggest an 
         Ultimate Troll Ring for this battle. You get Dugog's Axe (20% chance of
         +12 damage when you line up skulls) for winning. If damage is an issue,
         try to pick up a Firewalker's Staff, Black Staff, or a Holy or Unholy 
         Lance from the shops.
    Dhun-Kor, Capital of the Dwarves
    ! Good Tidings
    Drakenburg, City by the Sea
      ? Dragonsearch
      ? Stolen Catapult (level 7) (repeatable)
        * This quest is great for gathering a little extra cash at this point in
         the game. You get 200 gold per run.
      ? Storms at Sea (level 15)
    Enmouth, City of the Selentine Empire
      ? Slavers
        * Completing this quest gets you the Medal of Selentine (doubles all
         experience earned in combat).
        ? The Marriage
          * Returning the Princess to Bartonia gets you 2000 Gold(!), plus she
           joins you (+10 Battle against Good characters). Bringing her to the 
           Trarg pretty much gives you squat (50 Gold and EXP) and the Princess
           doesn't join you...
        ? Imperial Reply
          * This is the only time Imps appear! Capture one before going back to 
           Bartonia if you want one. Completing this quest unlocks Knightly 
           Orders in Bartonia.
        ? Harpy Infestation (repeatable)

         won't be able to do it while Khalkus is in the party. Returning the 
         heirloom gives you the title of Dwarf-Friend (+2 Morale).

    ! War Council
    ! The Gobshooter
    ! Grullkar
      B - Grullkar (Boss)
        * Way easier than Dugog, just wail on him with your best moves. Watch out
         for his Headbutt. He has a Greataxe, so he can lay on the hurt with 
         several skull matches in a row. You get Grullkar's Shield (+1 to battle 
         whenever you take 2+ damage) when you win.
    ! Dragontrap
      * Starting this quest unlocks the Dragonrealm.
      ? Incoming! (repeatable)

    Grullkar, center of the Orc Kingdom
      ? Reagent Hunt
      ? Tit for Tat
      ? Reassembly
        * You have a choice here. You can keep the Soultree Axe (+2 life points
         whenever you deal four or more damage), or return it to Neehi for EXP and
         and gold. The axe isn't great, IMO... Either choice will still allow you 
         to unlock the Antidote quest.
      ? Antidote (repeatable)
      ? Crazy Goblin (unlocked by Spider Meat)
        * Just keep finding him. You can keep the Relic of Ymorgia (+5 to earth

         and gold.

         casts a spell)for completing this quest.
      ? Ogre Meat (gogo cannibalism ^_^)
        * You get the Earthblood Cloak (2% to earth resistance whenever an 
         opponent casts a spell) for completing this quest.

        ? More Hunting
        * Flicker joins your party when you complete this quest (10% air
         resistance against fliers).
    ! The Mechataur
      B - Mechataur (Boss)
        * Not hard at all. His Mechanical Axe ALWAYS gives him an extra turn 
         lining up skulls, so try not to leave too many on the board at one time.
         His Energize move isn't scary at all, he only gets back like 25HP and it 
         drains all his mana. Beating him gets you his Elemental Gem (+2 to each
         mana reserve for each full mana reserve you have.
    END PART 2
    PART 3 - The Realms of War

    ! Skull of Sartek (101/101)
      * Starting this quest unlocks Ohtar.
      B - Minigoth (Boss)
        * This guy is a pain for Knights especially, as any time he gets a 4 or 5
         of a kind he destroys all purple stars. His earth Resistance is a pain as
         well. He has Charge!, Wake the Dead, and Flaming Skulls for spells, and 
         his Axe of Doom means any time he deals 3 or more damage, he destroys 
         ALL +5 Skulls! This is very dangerous after he casts Wake the Dead. 
         You get Minigoth's Armor (prevents 1 damage when you are dealt 2 or 
         more damage, and gives 15% Earth Resistance) when you win.

       You get the title of Immortality (+10 to Morale!) for completing this quest, 
       but it comes at a cost... This quest can be abandoned at any time before
       completion by returning to Bane's Citadel.
    ! Bane's Citadel
    ! The Final Battle
      * This conversation with Lord Bane is quite different if you completed 
       Follow the Sword...
      B - Lord Bane (Boss)
        * The Final Battle. Bane starts with 16% in ALL resistances, so spells are
         gonna be a pain. He has 4 spells, one for each color. Each one destroys
         all gems of a color and increases his Mastery by that much in that color.
         Not scary by itself, but it pumps the heck out of his gear...
           Bane's Crown: +1 to Battle, Cunning, and Morale for each 3 points of 
             Air Mastery.
           Bane's Cloak: 1% chance for each 3 points of Water Mastery of healing 
             10 Life Points each turn.
           Bane's Sword: +1 to damage for each 3 points of Fire Mastery whenever
             you deal 3+ damage.
           Bane's Shield: 1% to ALL resistances for each 3 points of Earth 
         The longer this battle goes the more it favors Bane. The shield and 
         cloak are the scariest, so try to keep fire and earth gems off the board.
         Keep matching skulls, and try to connect with spells.
         Good Luck!!!
