Version 1.2 28th December 98 by Ack

Do not read if you don't want to know the plot and happenings of this
game. Okay, that out of the way.. spoil yourself silly now.

A couple of stuff to do:
- Any character should go to the right of the screen once they visited
   the Hall of Kings and talk to the lion Rakeesh and he will give you
    either a grapel, ring of truth option, and a Katta pin. 

- Save often. And don't stay up too late playing it. hehe.

- Buy a pair of magic magnets from magic shop when you start out. 

- Time limit for rites changes with difficulty settings.

Little something I like to point out first:
Different methods of playing can be achieved. This IS NOT the only way
to play this game.. but i'm just a maniac and like to use force. Do
try other methods.
SKIP to the botom for hints and TIPS, CHEATS, and BUGS bypassing most
of the spoils if u don't want a total spoil. Btw, some info might not
be correct due to my bad memory. hehe. And also don't mind the typos..
When i say stuff like wack him silly, or blow them away i mean you
will have to play for yourself and figure out how to beat them. I dont
have to tell you to use Protection spell, use a particular weapon, or
use Zap spell. I figure you are smarter than that.. hope i'm right!

Quest 1: Rite of Freedom
There are five villages.. i suggest you complete them all as you can
gain stuff and boost skills. The item you want is the village sigils,
it's in the biggest house usually in each village, inside a large box.
Give the village sigils to the guards to complete the rite. Just hack
them all to death, Paladins can try to peace the area and go to big
building and get it.. no death involve. If u are behind, save all
villages for a tie.

Quest 2: Rite of Conquest
The island is south west, the small one next to big one. You need to
rent the boat in the morning from Andre. 
You can either climb up the the drain pipe as a thief and blackjack
general. You must not sound the alarm on your way in if u want to do
thief style. Blackjack everyone and try to go into the upper doors, he
will come out. If that dont work just blackjack everyone and kill the
magician.. he will come out, run far away from him and turn on
stealth. He won't see u and starts peeing near the corner next to
toilet or just stand around. Blackjack him there. Pick up stuff and
As a fighter just belt everything up and kill him. Paladins do the
don't bother doing it honorably, the general doesn't deserve it. 
Magicians just load up on reversal spells and when the centaur starts 
shooting spells at you, use trigger on him.. kaboom! Or you can do it
the harder way with firebolts or throwing.. though i prefer kaboom
instead! :)
If you didn't kaboom the guy then check his body for a neat spell..

Quest 3: Rite of Valor and Science Island 
You need these items, BEESWAX (pillar north of town), FEATHERS
(pegasus place on top of island, look below for info), SPEAR,
throwable items, one PIZZA the Artichoke, some ANCHOVIES from Andre
talk to him about small fish, and one AMPHORA from wolfie. 
Combine the pizza with the fish. Then go to science island break the 
break handle, replace it with spear. Jump on the gondola, throw items
break or use force bolt spell on it. Go to science island, do the test

(the small glowing square next to big gear), enter and give the A&A
pizza to scientist. Use beeswax on the wings, and then use feathers.
Once on Hydra island use amphora on green/yellow liquid. Then fight
the hydra, accept Elsa's help.. you fight (if u don't it's bug time!),
let her torch, or vice versa.. torch the heads by using firebolt or
torch from thief guild. Enter the cave, take EVERYTHING. Use magnets
and go home.. give guards the hydra's tooth and Salim (zonked out
healer dude) the scales.

Quest 4: Rite of Destiny & Balloon thingamajig ;-)
You need these items; bed sheets from inn, balloon picture from
Wolfie, goo from hydra island, brazier from Marrak, and a rope. Show
Ann the picture and then give her bed sheets. Show marrak picture and
buy brazier. Go to science island and exit up the top left. Use the
small panel to raise the gondola, combos are 100 and 50 closed. Use
sowed up balloon on it then rope, then use goo. Use brazier and then
use tinder box. Houston, we have liftoff! Fly north west.. keep flying
to Delos!
I suggest you do this early in the day so there is enough time. Land
on the small island with those places, head north and enter the
Sibyl's Temple, pick up flower in water.. and oh, save regularly
within these quest. Throw a coin in water.. and then pick up item.
Give it to guard, quest done. Note, magic users can gain MAGIC WOOD
here, just offer the Dryads (trees) Hippocrene water from pegasus
area.. all of them, so u need to fill up first.

Quest 5: Hades: Rite of Courage
Get 3 amphorae.. fill one up with spoiled water near pillar. These are

items u need, all the types of foods from marrak.. including
chocolate. then head to the pillar north of tinos. The one on the west
of island, the place where it's serene and peaceful. 
When u get there, move to the west of the screen all the way where
flow into mountain. Pour amphorae with water into the stream. Bribe
the Cerberus with all types of foods. Get in, and load up on
protection spells..aura is nice here or potions and run, dont bother
fighting unless you are a paladin and use destroy undead spell and
they go kaboom! hehe. Run to the left of the screen, Go into door, run
left of screen..again, dont bother fighting unless ur a paladin. 
Exit the dragon's skeleton by going left of screen. 
Run right all the way until you see intersection.. two paths, one up
one down. Pick up now, and run all the way right. Click on the
building you see.. make a choice i suggest Erana. Run all the way back
to intersection and take the other path..it's hard to see it but it's
there.. run down next to whirlpool, use amphora on it.. run right..
use amphora on calm pool. Run all the way left and out. Now run back
to the exit place where you came in. But this time you exit to the
beginning so just run down and up and out.. home free baby! 
Btw, don't forget to dip ring in Whirlpool as a Paladin.

Quest 6: Atlantis : Rite of Peace
If you pick to save Erana or Katarina then visit them and talk to them

about this rite, they will give you water breathing amulet. Put it on,
buy a magic spear. Then head off on balloon and go to South West of
map.. there land next to atlantis and walk to the sea.. you should be
swimming by now, if you haven't learnt it yet. Learn from a book next
to his desk in the FACS (the old man's place filled with books). Use
spear on the big gong thingy, and the door opens.. some tritons will
fight you. Just kick their butts! Enter it and kill everything IF u
wish.. then once that is done the queen will talk to you.. take the
gift and go back to town, give to guards and you finish this quest. 

To get into the Throne room w/o killing everyone, go to the tower on
left side and click on the panel that is above the edge of the ledge,
force it open, use picks, or use open spell on it. From the healers place, head up the stairs.. when u get halfway over,
use stealth and sneak behind the guard. Blackjack him, dispose of
body. And then use lockpicks on bank. Disarm trap, take money. Woo
hoo! Easy money!

Funny things:
Drink lots of stuff from Dead Parrot Inn, and watch what happens. Try
drink "Dragon's Breath" from there when you can.. save first though.
also, if u wander town after midnight, Nawar will be on her balcony,
kinda like Romeo and Juliet.

Thieving places:
You can break into the house near the arena, u need a torch. Look
around and u will find goodies to loot. Feraris's place can be entered
later in game. Mess around and you will get it right. Try getting on
top of his house from the house near arena. Thieves can only rob him
if u give him the black bird so you replace it for a fake to win Chief
Thief contest.
Other than this, thieves dont have much to do here.

Some Honour boosting acts: Supplied by people on QFG5 message board.
> Give money to Cat musician (forgot name).
> Give flowers and candy to Nawar or other women repeatedly
> Find basket for Sarra
> Sneak into Atlantis without killing a soul (stealth like) and tell 
  queen of paladin way.
> Help Ann with her inn. Blackbird quest 
> Tell Ann about wolfie after you show her picture of balloon 
> Ring of Truth
> Catch bank robber and ask healer to heal back arm. Then tell him 
  about doing good deeds.
> Don't kill the General!!! 
> Heal every one that the assian hits with a dagger.
> Arrest the scientists for drugging the wizards
> If you want you could give elsa credit for killing the hydra

Chief Thief:
Show thief signs to Elsa, late in the game (Peace Rite) when you sleep
at inn she will enter and talk to you about stealing it. Go to minos
and steal the bird, just burst right in and kill everyhing or be
stealthy if u prefer. You can climb up wall as a thief and blackjack
them, use gropel. Go to top left door, enter and pick lock from the
top right bar door that seems empty. Then take any other stuff you
can. Exit the place, show bird to Arestes and win. 

Arrest the Thief:
Go to Erasmus and show him lockpicks found at bank. Then go to Dead
Parrot Inn, then follow guy without hand (Arestes) and accuse him of
being thief then call for guards. He will follow u out if u tell him
how you busted his ugly butt! btw, do talk to him when you past the
prison afterwards.

Save Ann's inn:
You can get the papers for her inn from Ferraris late in the game..
give him the peace statue from rite 6 or the fake black bird. give Ann
her papers. The fake one can be found in Ferrari's Mansion.. just mess
around and you will be able to rob it.. besides, thieves are clever so
i wont help here. :)

Ring of truth:
Go to dragon pool and dip ring in dragon's blood pool. Use ring on
yourself. Dip ring on river in Styx River in Hades. I think that's it,
but if u need Paladin blood then you might have to be wounded..

Cure poisoned people:
Get water from Lathe river in Hades and give it to the healer. You can
also talk to them once you talk to the arrested thief and ask them to
help him. btw, you can cure Rakeesh and Ugarte by giving them poison
from healers. Give poisoned chocolate to them for hints and info.
You can also give the lotus from oracle to healers to make cure.
(thanks to Joe Black for that tip)

Dragon Fire spell, Whirlwind, and other spells:
Can be obtained from Katarina if u save her from Hades. Visit her on
the small island east of Town. Use balloon to get there. Only if u are
a Wizard.
Whirlwind can be obtained from FA if u give him Hippocrene water.
Augment can be found from the centaur mage in rite two.. just kill him
for it.
Shrink is in the box in the Hydra's cave.

Do not use magnets when you are on the hot air balloon unless u can
pick it up later.. i had to reload cos i left it in the middle of the
sea once. hehe.

Help Ann & Wolfie paint her inn: (also from Joe but i knew it
Talk to ann after showing her balloon drawing from wolfie, and then
come back later and Inn will be different.

Saving Kokeeno and Magnus:
There is no way to save them.. the game wouldn't work. These are just
myths. You can find Kokeeno's body after freeing Naxos, alert the
guards for points.

Hints for Newbies:
Buy stammina pills and go to adv guild and exercise, then take pills
and do more exercising. If you run strength will increase faster, if u
walk Vitality will increase faster. Shadow punching and kicking will
increase your stats, do everyday before you sleep and before you take
a meal. 
Buy lots of magic pills and practice throwing spells around to
increase it's strength. I suggest rasing Boom, Protection, Zap to
around 400 and frosbite to more than 300, it will make the game easier
later. High level boom can kill in one shot, and most of the time i
can kill more than one guy at a time! 
Don't bother practicing swimming once u learnt it.. if u want, it's by
the pier next to the boats.. click on water to swim.
You can learn Thermonuclear from FA if u give him water from pegasus
stream, but only if u are a wizard. 
Minimum install works fine, don't bother with bigger ones..
Get a map to make locations easier. 
To get back to erasmus, kick the portal or use trigger on it. Note:
can not get back there when erasmus is sick later in game, only once.
Becareful, stamina is needed for spell casting too! And talk to
everyone, at least buy everything from people except weapons. You can
gain weapons and stuff easy in this game during the quests.
And finally, whatever you do.. don't get addicted to this game! 

CHEATS!! BUGS!: not recommended to use.
There's an item duplication cheat/bug in the game, throw something and
when it is still in the air, press "i" and then select that item and
throw it again and again.. works with coins too. But this is just
plain nasty and even you shouldn't resort to this method!

If you use lockpicks on the door at the top of the stairs outside the 
Dead Parrot, most of your skills, except lockpicking, will increase, 
even though it says it's a magic lock and can't be picked.
