This is only my first FAQ at GameFAQs so I'm still learning a good way 
to write FAQs.  I know since this game has so many different 
possibilities I made some mistakes.  This FAQ has a COMPLETE list and 
solution of all the quests for the crystals.  I also have a small 
section on Draak's Lair to help you out, the other quest items, and a 
small section on tricks in the game that is made up purely of 
submissions by you guys.  I've also made a section that TRIES to explain 
the story and the movies you see in the game.  If you have a better 
explanation please e-mail me.(I really want to know) This FAQ was 
inspired by Reuben Kee's Darkstone FAQ also posted here but is in no way 
a copy of it.  Reuben Kee's FAQ has much more information on magic and 
skills but has an uncomplete list of the quests so I decided to make a 
complete list to complement his FAQ.  You can contact me at 
Mordruk@hotmail.com with any questions, comments, suggestions, 
corrections, or updates for the FAQ.  I am also on Yahoo Messenger as 
thedeathwizard a lot so if you want to talk to me real time just 
download that from www.yahoo.com.  I hope this FAQ helps:)

2-New Updates

This is version 4.0 which has added a spoiler section below called Story 
and Movies Explained which reveals all the movies and what the story is 
about.(or what I think it is about)  I think this will be my last new 
section since Rueben Kee's FAQ has about everything else which goes 
along well with this FAQ.  Hope you check that one out also!

3-Story and Movies Explained

!WARNING!  This section does give away the movie ending and a movie in 
the middle of the game.  This section also explains(from what I think) 
the story at the beginning of the game. Read at your own risk because 
this has many spoilers!

Story-The Monks of Kaliba go to some old ruins and one of them invokes a 
spell to summon Draak the evil dragon/wizard.  The head monk dude then 
either tries to enchant a spell on him to stop Draak or try to "make a 
deal" so to speak with Draak to stop all that evil stuff he is doing.  
However, Draak doesn't like the deal and decides to toast all of the 
monks.  Well now that the one hope of stopping Draak is gone who will 
save Uma?

Monolith Movie-After you collect 4 crystals you'll see a movie next time 
you enter the town where lightning strikes the ground.  That is Draak 
calling up the "monolith" as it is called in the game which is actually 
the Dark Stone.(hence the name of the game)  The Dark Stone has the 
power to turn people to stone and it does so in the movie.  By the end 
of the game all of people are turned to stone and you must stop it!

Death of the Beast Movie-This movie shows Draak dying after you kill him 
using the Time Orb.  He simply falls down and his glowing eyes fade and 
his skin melts away to just bones.  Poor Draak!  All he wanted to do was 
take over the world and stuff like that, why is everybody so 

Ending Movie-If you were looking for a cool ending sequence then this 
isn't the game for ya.  This movie just shows how peaceful and happy 
everyone is now that Draak is gone.  It starts off in the woods and then 
shows the entire town and the sun is shining, ahhh, what a perfect world 
it is:)  Now the real treat for beating the game is at the main screen 
you'll see a new option called Movie Clip or something like that and it 
is really a music video that is really cool!
3-General Hints

I always play as a wizard for this game so I'm afraid I don't have too 
much information on the other classes but I'll try to help you.  This 
section is for people that don't want an all out walkthrough for the 
game but just some help to point them in the right direction.  I have 
found that one of the first spells you get(spark) proves to be very 
useful and powerful if you can get it to the 8th level.  I recommend in 
dungeons to pick up EVERYTHING that is valuable.  It will help with 
money problems in the game later.  If you get a quest early in the game 
then you get the item but forget who gave you the quest just click on 
the speech button and keep clicking back until you find the person that 
gave you the quest.  Always carry at least 10 health potions if you 
don't have the heal spell or 5 health potions and 5 mana if you do have 
the spell.  Good luck with the game:)

4-Quest Walkthroughs

This is a complete list in alphabetical order from the 4 lands for 
easier reference.  The names of the quests aren't in the game anywhere 
so I have taken some of them from the official strategy guide of 
Darkstone.  If you can come up with better names for the quest if they 
are too confusing please E-Mail them to me:)  Since this is the main 
section the quests are put in sub-index below for easier use.  Enjoy:)

Ardyl Quests-     Marghor Quests- Omar Quests-    Serkesh Quests-
A-Genna's Disease G-Baby          M-Circles       S-Council of Druids
B-Reed's Song     H-Hive          N-Langolin      T-Luxorius the Vampire
C-Riken's Ghost   I-Horgan        O-Myth of Medusa U-Number

E-Sun Cross       K-Shadire       Q-Three Demons
F-Unicorn         L-Treasure      R-Trial of the Damned

A-Genna's Disease
This quest will start out when you see a small camp with a women in a 
bed.  She is Genna and is dying, quickly.  So yo must help her out.  
First, open the chest in one of the tents to get a letter.  Show the 
letter to Gutrick who is also in the camp.  He will confess that he 
poisoned Genna and he will agree to see the wizard Ger.  Ger will give 
you a cup for the antidote for Genna.  Now you can go into the dungeon.  
You need to find 4 crystals that will reflect light and make the 
antidote for Genna.  One crystal is found on each level.  The 2nd level 
in the dungeon has the Fountain of Light which you place the cup and the 
4 crystals.  When you get the antidote return to Genna and give it to 
her.  She will give you a crystal for your help.  Congrats:)

B-Reed's Song
You'll come along a lake with a drum near it.  This is the beginning of 
a quest for another crystal.  Click on the drum and a feary will give 
you a hint for the quest.  Go into the dungeon and start looking for the 
reeds.  There are 2 on the first level, 1 on the second, and 1 on the 
third and 1 on the last level.  Go down to the last level when you have 
all of the reeds.  You'll come to a green glowing room called the Mouth 
Room.  Kill the snakes on the platform with Spark if you have it.  Then 
put the reeds in the mouth from shortest to longest.  That will freeze 
the snakes for about a minute or two.  Click on the plank to lower it 
then go into the room.  Kill all the snakes and get the crystal.  If you 
want a really big challenge then don't play the song and let the snakes 
run free.  It also saves the time of getting all of those reeds:)

C-Riken's Ghost
You'll find a village with wooden spikes all around it and some people.  
Talk to the mayor and he will tell you that his people are starving and 
you must get the Horn of Plenty which was stolen by a wizard.  Go down 
in the dungeon to start your quest.  On the first level there is a room 
that is glowing either blue or green.(I forget which)  Click on the 
bones in the room and you'll meet the nice ghost Riken.  Now go down to 
the second level.  In this level in the center you'll find the Fire 
Golem's Lair.  Rikem will be outside and warn you that he died by this 
creature.  Go into the room and kill the beast.  Take the sphere that he 
drops and then make your way to the third level.  Again find the center 
room and Riken will warn you again that this is the Ice Golem's Lair.  
Well go in the room anyways and kill it and take the sphere he leaves.  
Now go down to the last level.  Go around this center room and you'll 
run into Riken again.  He will tell you there is no entrance but he can 
help if you give him the two spheres.  Do it and he will give you a 
special cloak.  Where it and you will be able to walk through the wall 
and kill the wizard.  Grab the Horn of Plenty which is on a pedestal and 
go back to the town.  Give it to the mayor and he will thank you.  What!  
No crystal?  Walk furthur out and Riken will give you the crystal.  

D-Stone People
You'll know this quest by, duh, the stone people in a village.  Go down 
the dungeon and make your way to the second level.  There you will find 
a chest with a mirror in it.  Now go down to the last level where in the 
center you will find a guy named Elas.  Give him the mirror and he will 
give you the cursed mirror in exchange.  Now go back to the surface and 
find a little path that takes you to a house where a witch is.  This is 
the witch that turned the women to stone.  Give her the cursed mirror 
and she will turn the women back to normal again.  Go talk to one of the 
villagers and they will give you your earned crystal:)

E-Sun Cross
You'll find a small village with wooden spears all around with a man 
named Drakus.  He will set you on your way to find a lost artifact known 
as the Sun Cross.  Go down into the dungeon.  There isn't anything of 
interest on the first two levels and you can't access the monastery on 
the third so go all the way down to the last level.  There you will meet 
Gondoor who will take you through tests to become a Disciple of Kaliba.  
When you enter the first room you will see 4 gates.  Three of them have 
monsters and one has a chest.  There are also 4 switches that open 
these.  Click on the bottom right one to open the one with the chest.  
In it is a key.  If you want the experience open the other 3.  Use the 
key to go into the next room.  Here Gondoor tells you to kill the 
criminal.  If you do lots of spiders come out that will give you some 
experience but if you don't need it click the switch on the wall and 
only a few spiders will come out and you'll get the key.  Use it on the 
door and you passed the test.  Choose a weapon and Gondoor will give you 
an amulet to enter the monastery on the third level.  Go to the 
monastery and open the door.  DO NOT grab the Sun Cross on the alter 
because the monks will try to kill you.  Instead enter a secret passege 
to the right to find Inoc's Tomb.  Kill Inoc(again) so he is REALLY dead 
and you get the Sun Cross.  Head back and give the Sun Cross to Drakus.  
Kill the spectre and the lizard guys to get a crystal.  Congrats:)

You'll see a feary with a unicorn that has been chained to a post.  Who 
would chain a unicorn!  That's just mean!:)  Anyways talk to the feary 
and you'll get to keep her so she can help.  Go down in the dungeon with 
the feary to start your quest.  This dungeon is easy because all you 
need to do is head down to the last level.  Of course you want to get 
all the treasure on the other ones but the main thing is on the last 
one.  Here you will find a gate that you can't open.  Use the feary on 
the gate and she will open it.  Oh no!  Felder captured her!  Go and 
kill Felder then release the feary.  She will give you the key to unlock 
her friend.  Go to the surface and do so.  The feary will give you a 
crystal which she had all along!  Should have just killed her and taken 
the crystal.(just kidding)

"Baby, the other, OTHER white meat!" oh..um..anyways you'll find a 
village(or what was left of one) and a woman that tells you lizard men 
have stolen her baby!  Well go towards the dungeon and you'll find her 
husband.  Give him a health potion and he will give you an invisible 
scroll.  Go down the dungeon and make your way to the last level.  This 
dungeon is great for experience so try to kill all the creatures.  When 
you get there use the scroll and enter the temple.  Get the baby and 
kill the lizatrd men if you want the experience.  Go back and return the 
baby to the woman to receive another crystal:)

"H is for hive, I is for icecream" and your about to do a very hard 
quest.  Make sure you have invisible scrolls.  Find a village with a 
well in it.  Go down the well and you have entered the Hive.  Well, 
since the first level is so small continue to the next.  Head down to 
the third level to find weird things that spit out wasps.  There are two 
mines that have these.  Destroy all of them in both mines.  In one of 
them you'll find Rosso who will give you the only sword that can kill 
the huge queen in the last level.  Head down there and equip the sword.  
It will be wise if you killed the wasp producers and then went after the 
queen.  After you kill her royal fatness you'll find a crystal that she 
just happened to have.  Congrats at this dungeon.(I found it the 

You'll start this quest when an old man complains about a bunch of orcs.  
Leave and go to find the orc camp.  Kill all the orcs and get the 
crystal they drop.  Give the crystal to Horgan and he will give you an 
amulet and instructions for entering the dungeon.  If you wanted a 
challenge and didn't make two characters just place a sword or something 
heavy on the seal while you go to the door.  Enter the dungeon.  On the 
first floor you will come to Gartol's Lair.  You will need to kill all 
the skeletons then kill Gartol and take his sword.  Go down and you'll 
eventually find another skeleton named Digmar.  After you kill him take 
his sword.  I really wanted to keep these swords but alas you have to 
use them in the quest.  Go to the last level and stab the two skulls 
with the swords.  Kill the last skeleton, Hassen and get the crystal.  

Some guy named Eraldus wants you to enter an evil lair filled with 
spiders and save his wife.  No problem!  She is in the first level of 
the dungeon.  BUT, you will need to get a key that is on the last level 
of the dungeon.  You will need some antidote potions so get some then go 
down to the last level.  Throw one in each pool and you'll get the 
crystal.  You don't have to save Eraldus's wife.  All you get is a 
special sword but I'm not going to post it now because I think it isn't 
that great of a prize.  If you want it that badly just E-Mail me.

You'll find Shadire who tells you that there are some lizard eggs that 
must be stopped before they hatch.  You can only do this by using the 
Celestial Sword on them.  Enter the dungeon and on the first floor you 
will find a prisonor.  Click on the switch to release him who gives you 
the Celestial Symbol.  Go back up and you can now get the sword via the 
Celestial Symbol.  Go back down and head to the egg room.  Destroy the 
eggs then go back and talk to Shadire.  He will give you a special 
dagger.  Go back to the dungeon and on the last level put the dagger in 
the empty slot and grab the crystal.  JOY! We can now move on to Omar:)

A poor blind monk needs your help to let him see again.  Since you are 
so nice and are willing to go out of the way to help you accept.  Plus 
he also has a vital item to get a crystal.  Go in the dungeon and find 
the Ocular Globes in two chests.  Put them in their place on that level 
to get a statue.  Go down to find only one globe.  Go down again and 
find two globes.  Go back up and put two in their place to get another 
statue than go down to the last level and get the last globe.  Go back 
up and put them in to get the last statue.  Go down to the last and 
discover that it is like a clock.  If you read the clues you find out 
you must place the gold statue on the seven o'clock position, the silver 
on the ten o'clock, and the bronze on the three o'clock.  The chest 
opens up to give you the Eye of Ra.  Give the eye to the monk.  He will 
give you a magnifying glass.  If you ever played Zelda for the N64 then 
you know that magnifying glasses come in handy:)  Go to Gar and get some 
of his fish.  Take the fish and give them to Rhino who will fix anything 
you want.  Take him back to Gar and make him fix a bridge to the island.  
Read the sign.  I didn't know there were mines back then????  Oh well, 
use the magnifying glass to read the sign to get specific instructions 
that you must follow to get a bible.  Go to the Temple of Eras and put 
some of your food in the plates.  Give Eras the bible and then take the 
bible to the monk.  Go back to Eras and he will give you the crystal.  
That was definetely a long quest but you did it:)

Enter the dungeon which is the City of the Dead I think or the Gate of 
the Dead.  You will come to several teleportor blocks.  Keep going 
around them until one transports you to a small room with a Flower of 
Shade.  There is one flower on the first 3 levels.  You get all of them 
the same way.  When you get all three go back and put one on each of the 
circles of death which are just outside the dungeon entrance.  Go to the 
circles of life and pick up each of the flowers that appeared.  Go back 
in the dungeon all the way down to the last level.  Place one flower in 
each little pyramid and you'll receive the crystal.  Congrats:)

You'll find a little house where a wife and a wizard are standing.  Talk 
to Langolin to find out he is trying to save the woman's husband or 
something like that. Yadda yadda yadda.  Anyways whatever you do DON'T 
give him the crystal of wisdom.  He is really that spectre guy again.  
Go in the dungeon and find the fountain of youth.  Kill all the spectres 
and click on it.  You get a potion of youth and a potion of immortality.  
You can drink the potion of youth yourself to make you one year younger 
if your growing old.  Go down to the next two levels and do the same 
thing to find the potions.  Go down to the last level and find Langolin.  
Talk to him and he will reveal himself.  Kill him and any of his 
goonies.  Use the crystal of wisdom to get the other crystal.  

O-Myth of Medusa
Near the dungeon you find a friendly spectre(yeah right) that says he'll 
help.  Go down in the dungeon and go in the library ignoring the 
spectre's warning.  There you will find Atenus who will tell you some 
information.  Go down a level and find the room where the spectre is.  
Go to the door at the end and get the elixir of youth.  Go down again 
and kill the medusa's in the vial room to get the two elixirs Atenus 
needs.  Go back to Atenus to get the vial of spirits.  Go to the last 
level and get the crystal.  The spectre will take it.(so much help he 
was)On that level is the spectre's tomb where you will use the vial of 
spirits to make him appear so you can kill him and get the crystal.  

If your tired of doing just seven quests think about typing out 21 
quests!  Well anyways, when you are about to enter the dungeon a prince 
asks for your help.  And like always, you will help.  Go down in the 
dungeon and find the center room that Jasmine is held.  She cannot leave 
because of a spell cast by a wizard.  Go down a level and find the 
prince's other friend.  He will ask you to save the master and will give 
you a key.  Go down again and use the key on the prison door.  The 
prince will give you an item to give to Jasmine.  Go back and give it to 
her.  She will give you the Horn of Roland.  A wizard appears that you 
must kill.  Then use the item he drops to transport you to a graveyard.  
Use the horn on the grave and kill the enemies that appear.  Get his 
helmet and go down to the last level in the dungeon.  Put on the helmet 
to see more of those technological mines:)  Go in another room and make 
your way to the 3 levers to switch them to turn off the mines.  Now get 
the crystal and either run like hell or try to kill the statues.  I've 
only killed them once so don't feel bad if you die:)  Anyways you got 
the crystal so good for you:)

Q-Three Deamons
You'll come across a camp of goblins that you must kill.  One of the 
goblins will drop an axe that you must return to a guy named Gaetan.  He 
will give you the shield of deamons which you will need for the dungeon 
that you are about to enter.  When you enter go towards the the center 
of the dungeon called the Road to Reason.  Hit the switch then run 
really fast until you get across so the mines don't kill you.  Hit the 
statue to get a gem then either kill the snakes for experience or go 
down to the next level.  In the center is a maze you must dodge 
fireballs then hit another statue to get another gem.  Go down to the 
next level and find the huge worm in the center of the stage.  Kill it 
then hit the statue to get the last gem.  Again snakes come out so be 
careful.  Now go down to the last level towards the center and put the 
gems in the pillars.  Put on the helmet and Shield of Deamons to get the 
crystal and your outta there:)

R-Trial of the Damned
At the entrance of this dungeon is a spectre you must kill to get the 
key to enter the dungeon.  Do so and enter it.  In this dungeon you must 
run passed spikes to find a cross.  Open the door with the key then go 
down to the next level.  Use the key again to open the door then get 
another cross.  Go down and do the same thing then make your way to the 
last level.  Give all the crosses to the monster inside a cage.  He will 
then try to kill you and you must kill him to get the crystal he had.  
Pretty easy quest if you ask me:)

S-Council of Druids
Go down this lone dungeon in the land and make your way to a room with a 
beam of light and a dying wizard.  He will give you the Holy Bow(which 
you don't need if you have a long range weapon) and tell you to stop the 
evil druids.  Go down a level and find a statue and destroy it to make 
another beam of light.  Go down again and wake up the skeleton guard if 
you want some experience but make sure you destroy this statue as well.  
Go down and find the last statue with all the druids.  Kill them and 
destroy the statue.  Go back to the first room and get the crystal:)  
Now it's on to Draak!

T-Luxorius the Vampire
Talk to the guy outside the entrance and get a torch.  Enter the dungeon 
and find a room with a hammer that can break rocks.  Go back up and find 
a camp full of rats.  Use the hammer on the boulder and kill the rats to 
get a scepter.  Go back down and find another room via teleporter where 
a guy turns into a vampire.  Simply kill him and go down to the last 
level of the dungeon.  You'll find the vampire's lair and then give him 
the scepter.  For your kindness he decides to kill you!  Kill him and 
take the crystal when he dies.  Now on to Draak!:)

Get a scroll from a monk and then enter the dungeon.  Now you have to go 
through a maze to find the crystal room.  The crystal isn't real 
though:(  Go down to the next level and try to get this crystal via trip 
plates.  This will give you 4 potions istead of a crystal:(  Don't give 
up though:)  Go down and go into this crystal room.  Again, a fake but 
you do get something:)  Go down to find a guy's body and find the holy 
number.  Go to a statue and make the number 540(what's so holy about 
that?) and get the final crystal:)  On to Draak!

5-Draak's Lair!

Well you did it.  You got the 7 crystals and now you can get the time 
orb and destroy draak.  Put the crystals in the tree stumps to get the 
time orb.  Now go down to the third level of the dungeon.  The map WILL 
NOT work here so just keep going around and teleporting to the rooms 
till you find Draak.  Now keep hitting Draak until he is about 3/4 or 
halfway.  Use the timeorb on him then unleash everything you got!  When 
he dies get the key and unlock the door.  Wow!  This treasure is to help 
if you play another game with this character:)  Take the astral hand and 
go back to town.  Use it on the darkstone to end the game and save the 
people.  After the credits go to the main menu and select an extra 
option(i forget what it is called) to see a really cool music video of 
the game.  Congratulations!  You have beaten Darkstone and had 
absolutely no help, well, almost no help:)

6-Other Quest Items

Here is a list of all the other items you can get.  Most of them will 
give you 10,000 gold when you return them to the person that asked you 
to get it.  There are also 3 quest to kill certain people.  In Draak's 
Lair you can find about 3 of these quests!  I don't think you can get 
all the quests in one game but I haven't tried it yet.  If you come 
across a quest that ISN'T in this list please tell me because I don't 
think I have goten all of them.  There are 19 quests total so I think 
I'm only missing one but I could be wrong.  Hope this helps:)
