Main goal of the game is to prevent the forces of the four elemental planes
to spread over the land of Jadame after being able to open a gateway in each
corner of the map through cataclysm invoked by a strange entity in the middle
of the city of Ravenshore.
After creating one character, you can hire up to four heroes to support you.
You'll find them at the Adventurer's Inn in towns or inside their houses/huts
or somewhere in the game. Not all will follow you, some want a more experienced
party when you talk to them for the first time. When you dismiss them, they'll
return to an Adventurer's Inn near.
Have a look at the Ability-tables when adjusting skill points. Don't waste
points for skills that others could improve better. Try to get the bow skill
early in the game and push the fire magic of your caster to make the beginning
Descriptions of traps/buttons/riddles are included in the maps-pages, here

Fangs, Poppy Pods and Thornbarks with you. In towns you'll meet someone who
wants ingredients for a nice black drink that you'll get as reward.
And have some Stone to Flesh scrolls in your backpack, you will need them
Try to train a water master early, beneath Town Portal you can cast Enchant

Cast Jump several times and press the forward button during the jumping to
cross moutains before you're able to fly.
It seems that you sometimes have to equip quest items like Ebonest to be recognized.
Your first main task is to end disease on the Outer Islands of Dagger Wound
Islands and to re-activate the portals to be able to travel to the mainland
again and deliver a letter to the leader of Ravenshore concerning the Regnan
Pirates' siege of Blood Drop.
The leader of the pirates, Arion Hunter, has some problems concerning his
independence, to help him deliver a letter to a pirate in Regna and free his
daughter from the ogres in Alvar. First you may want to clear the area and
Den of the wolves and have a look at the other sights of Ravenshore.
Then Chruth, my adventurous wife and her compagnions travelled to Alvar and
freed the daughter. Next important task is to research a fiery lake in the
desert and to return with someone who saw it appearing. Talk to Overdune there
and convince him to come to Loudrin with you. Then you shall form an alliance
to face the elemental forces.
Now you finally have to decide whether to support the dragons or the dragon
hunters and the necromancers or the clerics. When you made three alliances,
return to Loudrin and then visit the council in Ravenshore. You can now store
items in the chests here. Next step will take us back to the Dagger Wound
Islands where the Regnan pirates built an outpost.
Now we have to sink their fleet and return while Queen Catherine and King
Roland arrive at Ravenshore to aid the council. The mage Xanthor gives us
the order to find four elemental hearts, each to be found in its plane. With
these he is able to create the key to the plane between planes, the last step
of our journey where the source of the Cataclysm should be found.
