    How to Use This Guide
    The subquests are grouped according to where they get activated. NPCs critical
    to any subquests are listed together with their locations right after each Map
    heading. Many quests can only be activated mid to late game so don't worry too
    much if you cannot speak to some NPCs yet. You will know a subquest is up when
    you see ! or ? on their heads. If you still cannot speak to them when the sign
    is on then YES IT'S A BUG. It happens often enough to make you want to throw
    your comp out of the window, hopefully it gets better with future patches.
    So anyways there are two possibilities why you are looking at this guide. One,
    you are stuck. For that go to the section where you first got the quest, find
    the quest in question and follow the steps. Two, you are missing some quests
    and want to find out what you missed. For that check the list below to see
    what you are missing, go the the respective sections to see the quests in
    details, and follow the steps. Some quests are dependent on other quests and
    if you do one the wrong way you lose the chance to do the other altogether.
    Fortunately most quest rewards are not too important, or precioussssssssssss,
    just make sure you complete Amra and Lea, Shadow World, the Soulstones,
    Earthblade, and the mosaic quest.
    To get a quest, you must fulfil the activator requirement. Usually that is by
    speaking with the activator. Some subquests are activated by finding certain
    objects or monuments. These are all specified in the guide.
    To find specific content, the Find function under the Edit menu in your
    internet browser or notepad is your best friend.
    If you think your problem could be a common one, it is. Please refer to the FAQ
    section before asking for help anywhere.

    Directions are indicated by [N S E W NS NW SE SW], N = North and so on.
       NW NNW  N  NNE NE
       WNW           ENE    If you impose this diagram on the minimap in your game
       W    central    E    screen, you will pretty much know what I am talking
       WSW           ESE    about when I specify locations.
       SW SSW  S  SSE SE
    Monsters are usually listed as [XXX lv# xyz - @] XXX being name of monster,
    lv# monster level, xyz location, @ quest artefacts on monster. Monster levels
    are not very important, except in cases where the "bosses" are of levels much
    higher than the general difficulty level of the map, such as Udwin in From the
    Deep. When that happens, you should continue with your main quests and return
    to complete these subquests when you are higher level.
    NPCs are usually listed as [XXX in xyz] XXX being name of NPC, xyz location.
    Used when the NPC required to continue the quest is on a different map. If xyz
    is missing, the NPC is on the same map. You will find it useful if you
    familiarise yourself with the names of NPCs and maps.
    As of v1.11, there are 41 subquests in SpellForce - the Order of Dawn. In this
    guide, they are grouped according to where they first get activated.

    [  notes  ] There are two possible triggers for this quest. It does not matter
                who you talk to first.
                Try some weird maneuvers like offering Liannon Brandy to Hinrik or
                Eyeglasses of a Dwarf to Gabar for some amusing dialogues.

    [activator] Sandor

                Find the three gravestones
                 ~ N central, where Cutpurse is/was, SE of human monument
                 ~ SSW, southern most, beside a cave with a treasure chest

                Show the Book to Darius in Liannon
    [ rewards ] Experience and Silversnake
    [  notes  ] The gravestones are really small, third person perspective is
                recommended on this quest, it allows for better view of ground
                level objects. Sandor might get killed if you are not careful, but
                it is alright as the quest can pretty much continue without him.
    Shadow World
    [activator] Castigir
    [  steps  ] *available after Rohen's death*
                Talk to Castigir. He tells of the the shadowy creatures
                Kill the Shadow in Northern Windwalls undead camp NNE of mountain
                 bindstone - Ring of the Shadow
                Bring the Ring to Castigir.
                Bring the Ring to Rigour in Farlorn's Hope. He will enchant it so
                 you can see even more shadows
                Kill the Shadows lv10 in SSW Northern Windwalls - Shadow Manifest
                Bring the Shadow Manifest to Rigour in Farlorn's Hope. From the
                 book, Rigour learns of a mysterious crystal governing the shadows
                Look for the Shadow Crystal in NE Howling Mounds inner fortress
                *hidden in a part of NW-SE-aligned wall near the portal to Whisper*
                    /     \<--,
                   /       \  |     *outline of Howling Mounds inner fortress*
                   |       |  |    
                   \       /  t____ *the crystal is here*
                Show the Crystal to Rigour in Farlorn's Hope
                Show the Crystal to Castigir
                Talk to Castigir again at a later time
    [ rewards ] Experience and Shadowpulse Armor
    [  notes  ] The quest ends when you bring the Crystal to Castigir, so be sure
                to remember to claim the Shadowpulse Armor from Castigir a day
                later, or simply go to some other map and return. The Shadowpulse
                Armor is among the very best armors in the game, together with
                Amra's Chestplate and Amra's Greaves, do not miss them.
    The Sick Hermit
    [activator] Sick Hermit
    [  steps  ] *available after Rohen's death*
                Talk to the Sick Hermit. He is sick.
                Talk to Shan Muir in Liannon and ask for help. You will be given
                 two options
                 [1] Ask for Pain-easing Potion
                     Give the Pain-easing Potion to Sick Hermit. He will the you
                      that the Potion alone is not enough to relief him
                     Kill the Evil Dryad lv15 by the lake near Dryad Lake bindstone
                     in Eloni - Lock of the Hermit
                     *it is accompanied by Evil Nymphet lv10, for an easy time move
                      the leftover elf troops from previous main quest to that area
                      before fighting them*
                     Return the Lock to the Sick Hermit to free him of his curse
                 [2] Ask for Zirfar Potion. Shan Muir will refuse and tell you to
                      get one from Illirias instead
                     Talk to Illirias in the Shiel. He will give the Potion to you
                      only if you retrieve his lost Purse for him.
                     Look for and kill Marauder anywhere in the Shiel - Purse
                     Return the Purse to Illirias in the Shiel
                     Give the Zirfar Potion to Sick Hermit. He will go mad after
                      taking the Potion
                     Kill the Sick Hermit
    [ rewards ] Similar Experience either way
    [  notes  ] This is one of few quests with multiple paths. Option [1] gives a
                happily-ever-after ending while option [2] gets you insults. No
                difference other than that.
    Amra and Lea
    [activator] Orthanc
    [  steps  ] *available after Rohen's death*
                Talk to Orthanc about armor. He tells you of this great armor he

                Talk to Shan Muir in Liannon for even more information
                Kill Sento's Thugs slightly NE of Liannon town - Sento's Letter
                Confront Sento in Greyfell with the Letter. He will request to
                 meet you in Wildland Pass
                Talk to Sento in Wildland Pass near Village Skye bindstone, kill
                 his Thugs and talk to him again. You will learn of Lea's grave.
                *cheap trick: summon 10+ windarchers before talking to Sento*
                Look for Lea's Avengers lv19 in NE Whisper, kill them and
                 investigate the gravestone at the edge of the cliff. The Ghost of
                 Lea will appear
                *the Avengers cast Area Pain and Shockwave, do not meddle with them
                 unless you and your troops are at very high levels. You can try to
                 drain them of their mana by sending in a few workers to sacrifice,
                 and then move in with your combat units to kill them all.*
                Kill Ghost of Lea lv15 - Lea's Letter for Shan, Lea's Trinket for
                Bring the Letter and Trinket to Shan Muir in Liannon

                 dwarf monument, kill them all, investigate the grave and kill the
                 new batch of Avengers and the End of All Hope lv30 that appears
                *the Avengers come in swarms, it is a good idea to built up an army
                 of some elite and lots of defenders before fighting them. If you
                 have Area Pain, Extinct and/or Aura of Light, this is where they
                 can come into good use. The End of All Hope is really what its
                 name suggests, get ready for a good fight*
                Kill Ghost of Amra lv16
    [ rewards ] Amra's Chestplate, Amra's Greaves and Experience
    [  notes  ] This is the longest subquest in the game, spanning the latter half
                of the entire game. The reward is well worth the effort, and even
                if you are not a melee player, one of your heroes will be able to
                wear them.
    [activator] Orthanc
    [  steps  ] *available after Rohen's death*
                Talk to Orthanc about weapon. He will make you a good one if you

                   Unforgiven, Tears of a Soulless Being
                Return the Soulstones to Orthanc
    [ rewards ] Soulblade, Soulaxe or Soulstaff

                 ~ Zalaga lv20 S Nightwhisper Dale - Spider Blood

                Find Adamantinum in chests scattered all over Stoneblade Mountain

                Kill Tombard
    [ rewards ] Experience and Blade of Light
    [  notes  ] This is one very weird quest, you go through all the trouble to
                kill the protagonist in the end. Having said that, the Blade of
                Light is a great weapon for melee players, go for it.

    [  notes  ] This is one of few quests with multiple paths. You can actually do
                both! Here's how: first choose to guard, wait for Kraga to return
                and claim reward. The quest closes here, but you can still move in
                into the cave, which make Kraga hostile. Kill and loot. You get the
                Gemstone ring, one of best rings in game, Kraga just got back from
                Braga and very bad Karma for being a backstabbing backsliding pig.
                Your choice.
                *I suspect there is a third path, for once the questlog screwed up
                 when I killed Kraga and got the message "return the Gemstone to
                 Kraga", which suggests the possibility of retrieving Gemstone for
                 Kraga, but I cannot figure out how to go about doing that.*

    [  notes  ] This quest is currently bugged. It cannot be completed. You can
                remove it from the quest list by killing Halicos in Farlorn's Hope
                with orcish troops. There is not much reason to do that, except to
                get a Coin from Halicos's body, which could possibly be part of a
                subquest that is currently disabled or not yet implemented.
                Wolfsigns are common item drops on Briar Wolves.

    [  notes  ] The only fixed Sapphire drop in the game is from Shin Tar Guar
                *see Echoes subquest*. The Sapphire sells for lots of cash, so
                if you are not a white mage you might not want to exchange it
                for a useless reward.

    Riddle of the Menhir
    There is a stone pillar that looks like a bindstone at the N of Stoneblade
    Mountain. Investigate it and enter the sequence eye-blood-hand-hand-blood-eye,
    you will fight Erin and get a Star Shape Amulet, which you use to open a
    treasure chest a few screens W of the pillar. The clues to solving the riddle
    are etched on the gravestones scattered around the pillar.
    Talk to Jon in Greydusk Vale and get the First Piece of Mosaic. Go to Whisper
    and investigate the altar guarded by Guardian of the Mosaic in the N. Kill the
    Keeper that appears to get the Second Piece. Insert the Second Piece into the
    altar and kill the next Keeper that appears. Keep doing this until you complete 
    the Mosaic. The monsters you encounter in this quest are between lv16 and lv22
    so be careful. The location of the Keepers will be reveal in the mini map, keep 
    your eyes open. You should complete Whisper's main quest before doing this
    quest to avoid confusion. The Keepers are all located on the central-E line.
    You get experience and many random lv12 spells from this quest, this may not
    matter much to melee players, but if you are playing a mage, you can use the
    quicksave/quickload trick before looting any of the corpses to reroll the magic
    type drop. *quicksave - F7, quickload - F9*
    *you must first complete the Tooth Crusher's Pliers subquest*
    Kill Obak lv8 orc camp Leafshade - Orc Tooth
    Sell it to Seno in Greyfell for cash and experience
    Beastman Manes
    Ashawe in Eloni pays you 1 silver for each Beastman Manes you bring her. You
    also gain some experience. You find them on Beastmen in S Eloni and Clawrippers 
    in Southern Windwalls and Stoneblade Mountain.
    This is similar to the Wolfsign subquest. You can sell the Manes to regular
    vendors for more cash, but you get no experience in return.
    Bandit Leader
    Kill Bandit Leader lv4 SW Liannon - Wanted Poster for Celen, Old Dwarven Axe
                                        for Sunder
    You know what to do. You get some cash, mediocre gear and experience
    Stone of Eternal Fire
    The Stone of Eternal Fire is required for several quests, namely
    There are just enough of them to complete all those quests. The locations are

       Zyrafyr E Southern Windwalls
       Fyrmir N Farlorn's Hope
       Faurung NW Farlorn's Hope
       Chest in W The Rift *chest is locked with Glowing Red Key obtainable from
                            Ulather lv29 E The Rift*
    Demon Blood
    The Demon Blood is required for several quests, namely
    There are just enough of them to complete all those quests. The locations are

       Ulather lv29 E The Rift - Demon Blood, Rune Warlock Antius lv18, Orc Worker
                                 Rune lv12, Glowing Red Key
    Broks, Jons and Sunders
    There are two Broks, two Jons and two Sunders in this game. One Brok is the
    human guard in Liannon, the other is the dwarf miner in Farlorn's Hope. One Jon
    is Greywind in Greydusk Vale and the other is Farlorn in Farlorn's Hope. One
    Sunder is the blacksmith in Liannon, the other is a villager in Godwall. Their
    paths do not cross, so do not get confused and talk to the wrong Brok, Jon or
    Leftover Items
    These unique items were probably intended for subquests that never got
    implemented. You can sell them for cash for now.
       Broken Dwarven items
       Liannon Brandy *try offering it to Hinrik*
       Wildling Fur
       Sign of a Fist
       Pledge of the Gods *cannot be sold*
       Shoulderplates of the Princeps
    All gems can be sold, just keep one Sapphire for the Cataract subquest and one
    Malachite for the Wound Tincture subquest.
    All mushrooms can be sold, just keep one of each for A Poison Dwarf subquest.
    All Beastman Manes can be sold, just keep three for Predator's Fur subquest.
    *see also Beastman Manes under UNLISTED SUBQUESTS*
    Everything else can be sold.
    Here are some subquest related bugs. I am not going to talk about the rest. :P
    Inabilty to start or close quest. That happens sometimes when you try to talk
    to an NPC and find yourself unable to. When that happens, try loading a
    previous saved game and play again. Changing the perspective works sometimes
    too. These do not solve the problem every time, but they may work.
    Item recognition. If you find a quest item before you get the quest, the game
    might not register your possession of it. This does not happen often, but it
    can happen. Another reason why frequent saving is important.
    Dupe. You can actually make this bug work in your favor. Some quests sometimes
    do not close even after you claim your reward. This enables you to get the
    reward again! Quests with this bug include the Soulstones, Klingzog's Leggings
    and Predator's Fur. These do not happen everytime, so yeah...
    Dupe2. Some quest items remain even though they are not suppose too. This is
    not known to cause any major problem except player anxiety.
    Inconsistencies. This is not really a bug, but many items, NPCs and locations
    have different names. The questbook may ask for one thing but the actual item
    might have a different name. So do not get confused or overly worried.
    These questions are being asked everyday despite being answered too many times.
    Read them before asking, or should I say, read them and stop asking!
       [ Where is this/this/this? ]
       Many bindstones/changes/bug fixes/stuff are added in the 1.10 patch. Please
       update and patch your game. It is unlikely that your saved games will get
       corrupted after patching, but remember to make backups just in case. The
       saved games are probably located in your My Documents folder, look for them
       [ I cannot patch/CD-Key not working!? ]
       Some earlier release used hard-to-read fonts for the CD-Key. Visit the
       official site for more info on this. Make sure you do not mix up the O's,
       0's and 8's, and I's, 1's and l's. And also make sure your copy of
       SpellForce is a legal one.
       [ Where can I find the Stone of Eternal Fire? I'm missing one!!! ]
       See Stone of Eternal Fire under section APPENDIX.
       [ How do I open the clicking dryad chest in the Shiel? ]
       It's part of the Wound Tincture subquest, be patient, you can't open it yet.
       [ How do I open that star chest in Stoneblade Mountain? ]
       See Riddle of the Menhir under section UNLISTED SUBQUESTS.
       [ Where is Tombard? ]
       I wish I could draw ASCII maps, but there are too many details to include.
       He is in the village in Greyfell. Where's the village? It's in the central
       area where you helped the villagers kill the orcs in the very first
       scenario, between the Greyfell town area and the human monument. Remember?
       [ What is the Glowing Octagon for? ]
       See Homunculus subquest.
       [ How do I kill Fayt/Bloodash/Fyrmir etc? ]
       This is a subquest guide and I'm quite reluctant in giving advice on how to
       kill things, primarily because the game is flexible and there are different
       methods to kill the same things depending on your character type and level.
       The one method that applies to all is "numbers". If you have 80 units all
       targetted on one single monster, it's unlikely that you will ever lose. And
       always get more shooters/spellcasters than hand-to-hand fighters, that way,
       all of your troops get to attack.
       [ How do I get to Farlorn's Hope/Godmark/Nightwhispe Dale etc? ]
       You will be there when the main storyline allows you to. Be patient. The
       list of map locations in the COMPLETE SUBQUESTS LISTING section is in
       chronological order of the game progress. That should give you a good idea.
       [ Where is the Rift/HELPPLZ bug the gate to the Rift won't open!? ]
       The entrance to the Rift is at E Mulandir. There are two gates on the E
       side. One at the NE behind the guardians, the other [the entrance to Rift]
       is at the E. Make sure you are at the right gate.
       [ Where do I go after the Rift/Farlorn's Hope? ]
       Get the Phoenix Stone from the guardian in N Mulandir. Follow the storyline.
       Go to Greyfell, then Frost Marsh.
       [ Where is Frost Marsh/Frostmarks/Frost Marshes? ]
       Really, pay attention to the game, it's an RPG. Frost Marsh is where Rohen
       got killed. Your first time there is after Wildland Pass. You should have
       activated the bindstone. If not, go there via the portal in Wildland Pass.
       [ Fyrmir did not drop the Phial/Stone of Eternal Fire!? BUG BUG BUG!!! ]
       There are two dragons in Farlorn's Hope. One in the N, one in the NW. Did
       you kill the right one?
       [ Where is the Twonk/Shadow/Spider etc? ]
       First, read the guide. Second, you may already have killed it, but did not
       loot the body. It's a pain trying to search for a body on a huge map.
       Fortunately there is one feature that will help locate loots easily. If you
       leave and return to a map, you will notice small lit up spots in the mini
       map. Those are indicators of corpses you forgot to loot.
    I'd answer more, but I think I covered everything related to the subquests in
    the guide already.
    Thanks to JoWood and Phenomic for producing and publishing this amazing game.
    Thanks to the forum community at the Spellforce Companion Forum
    [http://www.planetspellforce.com/forum/] for providing some guidance when I was
    still a newbie. I post there using a different pseudonym so don't ask. :P
    Thanks to Faraz Huda for some information on Delicate Fabric subquest.
    Thanks to Michael Sarich for some tips on formatting. I may not have change
    much to suit your liking, but hey, there's gotta be some "me" in this guide.
    Thank you for the encouragement too.
    Thanks to my parents. *insert cheesy cliche stuff here* No but on a more
    serious note, a lot a lot of things happened as of late, I don't really know
    what to say, they sure didn't contribute anything to this guide, but they did
    in so many other ways. Thank you for your patience.
