You start off at the stocks, go to the Craftsmans Guild 
bottom floor (go downwards from the stocks) Get the sword 
that is leaning against some of the blacksmiths tools. 
Goto the Guards Tower (refer to the map), go straight to 
the top (there are some interesting things along the way 
most of which you can't get at YET!), watch for the trap 
near the top of the tower to get past it stand next to the 
head which the key is leaning on and hit it, get the key, 
open the door, you will see two sets of stairs (use the 
stairs that lead to the next tower), you will see an inactive 
teleportation plate, go down the stairs which leads to the 
bottom of the prison tower (the tallest tower), go past the 
tower until you reach a closed portcullis and get the armor 
which is floating there. Go back to the prison tower and 
make your way up the stairs. Skip the first locked door 
and make your way to the second door, break it down and get 
the key from the chest. Go back down to the locked door !
and set the priestess free (she will assist you throughout 
the game, often making annoying and obscure comments :) go 
back up to the very top of the tower and pick up the staff 
which is lying there (you don't have to use it but you 
need to pick it up at least for some strange reason).. go 
back down the tower.. hit the two gargoyles heads and make 
your way to the previously closed portcullis (which should 
now open).. you might want to (not completely necessary) 
walk down the stairs opposite the closed portcullis and 
hit the gargoyles head there).. now you make your way to 
the area known as the "attic".. (there is a door which is 
hard to see on the top left corner of the screen to the 
left of the closed portcullis. Walk in find and hit the 
blue switch, then hit the blue lever elsewhere.. this will 
open a portcullis in the attic somewhere where you will 
find a blue key (which opens the blue door).. hit one of 
the gargoyles heads in the room past the blue door then hit 
the gree!
n lever (next to the blue lever).. this opens up another 
portcullis where you will find the purple key (which opens 
the purple door).. hit the gargoyles head in the purple 
room.. then go back and hit the red lever.. go back to the 
blue door room and hit the second gargoyles head.. which 
opens up two portcullises also in that room. Find the 
silver sword behind one of these opened portcullises. 
Leave the attic and go down to the main courtyard (next 
to the well) hit the big door behind the well (this leads 
into the main hall).. if you search around the bottom 
floor of the main hall you will find a three diamond 
weapon.. next head upstairs part of the way up the 
stairs a shadow warrior will appear kill him go back 
downstairs and head up the other staircase and kill 
the second shadow warrior who will drop the first fragment 
of the eldersign (only 10 more to go!).. go up the right 
staircase.. at the top of the stairs walk straight ahead.. 
go through the left doorway and then walk into the next 
room.. where you will find the warlock.. kill him and b!
eware of the human enemies who flock into the room.. go 
back the way you came and use the crystal ball.. leave 
the main hall.. Head towards the right handside of the 
courtyard.. you will see a building there (near the 
bottom of the guard tower) it is the stables.. find the 
horse and then you will see a doorway in the upper left 
area of the room.. go through this doorway.. and head 
down the ladder..hit the gargoyles head go through the 
portcullis and turn right downwards.. walk through the 
tunnels (beware of the big vicious well guys) until you 
find the drunk well guy.. pick up the pink bottle.. and 
go back to the well (in the courtyard).. walk towards the 
guy on the well from the bottom of the screen.. until he 
grabs the bottle out of your hand.. wait for a second or 
two.. and the guy will vanish.. head down the well.. 
find the three switchs .. hit them.. and go through the 
big door.. where you will find some treasure and magic 
weapons etc.. get out of the well (the way you!
came for now..) .. walk downwards from the well and go 
throughthe door left of the horse.. head up the stairs 
and into the 2nd levelof the craftsmens guild.. find the 
ladder leading upwards and climb it.. find a 2nd ladder 
and climb it (this leads to the roof) go up the stairs 
to the top of the chimney.. fall into the chimney and you 
will get teleported.. find the catacombs.. find two 
flashing skulls (you can only take one at a time).. when 
you find one go out of the catacombs and up the stairs 
until you find a big locked door with skulls on pedestals.. 
walk up to one of the empty pedestals and the prince will 
place the skull on it.. go back for the 2nd one.. then go 
back down.. and go through the left entrance to the 
catacombs.. and continue to go leftwards whenever possible.. 
until you find stairs going downwards.. these lead you into 
another room with a large pond in the middle.. walk to the 
edge of the pond until you find the flashing dots.. they 
form stepping stones as you walk across them (go slowly 
because its easy to fall in!).. whe!
n you get to the other side there is a magic sword to the 
rightand a doorway underneath a skull.. go through the 
door.. and get the third and final flashing skull.. go 
back to the room with the pedestals and place the skull 
on the final one.. the door will open.. go through and get 
the ring from the skeleton sitting on the throne and get 
the small cross.. and get the 2nd piece of the eldersign.. 
You can now open the doors with the red dots on them.. Head 
back to the room you first teleported to.. use the crystal 
ball.. and then open the red dot door.. this will lead you 
back to the well.. climb out of the well.. either get some 
boots (try above the stables) or just try and jump over 
the yellow glowing stuff which is blocking an entrance 
downwards from the well.. hit the gargoyles head in that 
room.. and then return to the courtyard.. head up the stairs 
to the left of the hospital tower and open the red door to 
get a 4 diamond axe.. then head towards the big portcullis 
(which will now open) just to the right of the well.. this 
leads tothe drawbridge of the castle.. hit the lever in 
there.. which will open the drawbridge.. go out of the 
castle.. go down once and go left through some bushes.. 
then go straight.. and find the graveyard.. you will 
automatically open the gate using the little cross.. go 
to the back of the graveyard and find the entrance to an 
underground tomb.. here you will find permanent armor.. 
next head to the church in the graveyard.. and hit the 
candle at the left end.. go down the stairs into an 
underground passage which takes you into part of the garden.. 
you will see a piece of the eldersign at the beginning of 
the garden which you can't reach YET.. explore the garden 
until you find the clearing with the amazon people (DO NOT 
go the the village yet unless you have a deathwish).. kill 
the amazon people and head to the top left.. this will bring 
you into a cave.. head to the top exit.. and kill the 
Sorceress.. get the ring then go back out into the clearing 
and collect the nearby eldersign pie!
ce (top right of the screen).. go back into the cave and 
teleport back out.. you can now open the blue doors. Now 
you can go and get the best weapon in the game! (well the 
best that we found anyway).. it is located on the 2nd to 
top level.. break down the blue door and hey presto a 5 
diamond golden sword.. Go to screen on the right of the 
well screen and climb the steps on the side of the guard 
tower.. Go past the swinging axe and into the room and out 
onto the ledge.. Go to the door to the max left and into the 
room with the bombs. Go through it and up the steps on the 
side of the tower. Watch out for the bombs! Go through the 
blue door and pass through the passage right next to the 
blue door.. Climb the steps until you reach the top of the 
tower. You will see an item protected by spinning globes.. 
you need to kill the wizard before you can get to it.. go 
through the door in the upper left and you will reach the 
top of the tower.. walk around the top until the wizard 
rs and kill him.. go back and get the item.. go out the 
door on this l
evel (to the top right of the screen) and find the 2nd 
set of armor.. go down one flight of stairs and find the 
exit to the side of the tower. it is on the right of the 
screen. go through the blue door and get the next piece 
of the eldersign.. go down to the second last level of the 
tower and walk outside through the doorway with the skull.. 
find the crystal ball and use it.. take the teleport and go 
to the village (turn right and take the high road).. find the 
well and locate the house with the open ledge facing it. Go 
up and take a running jump into the well. Go through the door 
and find an important item. now that the people have been 
restored go to the church and use the crystal ball. follow 
the directions the people of the town give you to reach the 
hunter's lodge. find the room with the stuffed bear. Hit it 
and go the other room. Go to the fire place and get the 
lantern. go back to the plant you could not kill before and 
get the piece of the eldersign go back to the village and 
find the pond. go past it and into the forest. find the old 
ruin and go through the teleport. jump up to the doorway 
visible in the top left. go through to the teleport. you 
are now in the necromancer's domain. go up and up again past 
the inactive crystal ball. follow the path to the necromancer's 
room. kill him and get the sixth piece (it is up and to the 
left). you now have all the items you need to go the final 
part of the game, the dark tower. find the teleport that has 
a checkered feel to it. save it here. go through the teleport. 
You are now in the dark tower and need to move it because the 
clock is ticking! Can't help you any more. however, you don't 
need to open every chest to make it to the next level. play it 
once, exploring and reload and do it again effectively. the 
final piece and the code scroll are in the first normal level 
you come across. find them fast before you move on. the next 
level has the Archmage. kill him and you are done!
