Black & White Hints
PC | Submitted by MysticAeonCast spells out of your Power
To cast spells out of your area of effect, create a town center scaffold and move it somewhere just out of your area. When it appears it will have a small area of effect by itself. Now pick the scaffold back up and move it somewhere close to the town center and put it back down. When you have it at the area you want to cast spells, cast a spell and move out of the are of effect. As you can go a short distance from it you can cast spells far out of your main area of effect. I am not sure if this works if you have downloaded a patch.
PC | Submitted by kuppakawfyEasy Prayer Power
Whenever you hear the game whisper 'death,' immediately press 's' to find the dead person in your village(s)(the dead person's label will be in white type). You can pick up the skeleton and drop it in the bowl at your worship site for an easy 5000 or so prayer power. The bonus is that the game doesn't count it as a sacrifice. You have more time to find the body if you haven't yet built a graveyard, and it's a good way to get your villagers back to work, as they stop mourning once you pick up the skeleton.

If you pick up a mushroom any type will do, and place either using your creature or your hand and drop it in the food store of any village the food will turn green. Then when the food is eaten by the village with poisoned the poisoned food thier people will start coughing and will become green and this will kill everyone in thier village and you will get belive if you save them.

I'm not sure about the other types of mushrooms but the small white ones slightly increase the growth of your creature. Keep an eye out for them!

PC | Submitted by Anonymous3rd level
This is just a quick way to end the third level! First find the guy at the base of a small cliff near your village. He will be sitting next to a small camp fire, saying things like "you cant harm me." You can play with him for a while by throwing him around. Once you get the hang of following him, you will notice that as long as your around him you have a area of influence around him, so you are free to cast spells or what ever. Through him for a while until you reach the enemies temple, once you have him at the temple drop him in the sacrificing bowl (as if you were going to sacrifice him). He will stay there and you can trash his temple by dropping rocks or casting spells. Once he doesn't control the villages by his temple, you can go around and impress the others.

It s very simple - and very useful in the later "islands"
I used it on island 3 and 5 with great success - the trick is best suited for villages already "owned" by other gods!
First you get your influence limit as close as possible to the vilage you want to take over.
Now the choices:
You poison their food - and when there is nobody left in the village, you drop a villager you have into it - as a "missionary"!
When that happens you just impress him a little and... you got a village! but only with one villager but that s easily fixed.
Another way - building on the same concept - is to kill of the villager with lightning, fireballs or my favourite: THE MEGABLAST!
Then the same routine with a missionary&
PC | Submitted by RatosLand 4 Totem Trick
To finish the Undead Village you must raise the Totems. You can't impress the village with any tricks you normally use. You must place a village center next to each Totem. To do so you must move the village center repeatedly to the Totems by places them then picking it up and so on until you reach the Totems. To raise them you have to interact with it and pull them up. They will lower every time you let go of them. In order to raise both Totems at once (which you need to do!!) you must have your creature lift one at the same time as you do.

On level two when that woman asks for something unique to your creature something hot and something that howls in the night he wants a wolf which you can find on the beach next to the city. She also wants some poo from your creature and a rock or a tree that has been set on fire. Then you must protect it with the physical shield miracle but make sure the circle is in a precise circle. You will be give the zebra for your efforts!

PC | Submitted by AndreSinging Stones
Well, it took me forever, but I finally did it. I figured out the tune to the Singing Stones on the second island. The key to this puzzle is to find two pipers walking around the island. Since there are 2 tunes you have to play, each piper is singing a different tune. One piper sings the tune that must be played during the day time and the other sings the tune that is played at night. Lets just number the stones left to right, 1-9. The day tune is 1 1 8 8 9 9 8 6 6 5 5 3 3 1
After you play that tune, it instantly becomes night. Then you play this tune.
4 4 4 4 7 6 6 4 4 3 4
If you have entered the tune correctly, the stones will create a ring of magic around them. When a dead body is placed inside the ring, he/she is brought back to life. But it only works temporary. Soon, the ring of magic will disappear and you'll have to re-enter the tune for it to work again.
PC | Submitted by zamlordGet Skeletons Living in Your Village
If you want to get skeletons living in your village then you need two things: The teleport Miracle and to be able to kill people:
Step1: Kill someone [without using fireballs]
Step2: Make sure they're a skeleton [unless you want a zombie]
Step3: Make two teleporters.
Step4: Drop the person in one teleporter
Step5: When they come out they will go to sleep, let them heal themselves by sleeping and you will have a living skeleton.
If you want burnt humans then do the same thing as the skeleton but set fire to the human with a fireball and make sure they don't turn into a skeleton If you want an eternal fire then get loads of rocks in a pit and set fire to them, this will create a never-ending white flame. Note: don't blow up the rocks, the burnt humans may not work sometimes

PC | Submitted by Tom DThe Old Hermit
There are two ways to complete the silver reward scroll on land one with the old hermit. The evil way is to kill him, but there is a more difficult and good way. First of all, activate the scroll, go to the quarry and find the rock standing on its own with the miracle seed underneath, find it and the hermit will tell you that the fireflies turn themselves into miracle seeds at dawn. If you show your creature to the Hermit normally, the hermit will say he is small, if you look each morning for the miracle seeds and eventually find an enlarge creature one, take your creature fairly close to the hermit's house, use the miracle and then take your creature closer, the hermit will see him, you have now completed the task.
PC | Submitted by GamesRadarAnother Vortex
When your on the 2 island don't mind it when Lethys (the bad god) takes your creature and don't I repeat don't go through the vortex I know it will close up, but if you get all of Lethys's villages you can destroy his temple and then another vortex will come for good. This will give you plenty of time to put some food, wood, villagers, miracles and scaffolds.
PC | Submitted by Your CreatureCreature Happiness
An easy way to make your creature happy is to go to the creature cave (hit f5) then give him/her a tatoo. if the creature likes the tatoo(s) he/she will smile or even grin. also when punishing you creature ( giving him/her a slap or two... or three) make sure it isn't next to anything or it could crash into it and hurt/destroy it.

PC | Submitted by Bobbi713Unlimited Food and Wood
The unlimited Wood trick also works to supply new buildings, especially the big "Wonders". Right after you set the scaffolds down, invoke miracle wood,zoom in to get a clear view, hover your hand over one corner of the scaffold,(not what will be the door when finished), then use the mega wood trick. You may have to try once or twice to get the right position on the scaffold, but your minion won't use up all the wood you just put in the village store and shop, and you can continue to build like a crazy person, (or your minion can)......Kewl?
PC | Submitted by MasterSevenUnlimited Food and Wood
When having activated a wood or food miracle,
hold the Hand over the door of the village store . ( Not in the middle of it !! )
Then press the action button ( right mouse button ) very quick repeatedly over the Village stores door.
You get an insane amount of wood or food
( 20.000 )for very low mana costs.
Same thing with the workshop. click repeatedly over the door and you get very much wood.
With this you wont have any probs managing your villages.
