                 Darksun II: Wake of the Ravager WALKTHROUGH

The City of Tyr
---------------

1) Upon entering, a woman will come up to you and talk to you about the 
Veiled Alliance.  No matter what you say to her she will get killed and a 
group of Draxans will come out to attack you.  Kill them and pick up the note
which the woman left.

2) Go into the building directly north-east of the place where you fought.  It
will be an inn.  Go into the eastern section and talk to the dwarf Arslan.
Tell him that the woman talked to you about the Veiled alliance and that you 
are not a member but would like to join.  He will quest you to discover what 
the templars are up to in exchange for membership.

3) Leave the inn and enter the building south-east of the one you exited.
Go into the eastern section and open the first door up.  Talk to Fayina and
say that you need her help to get into the templar's headquarters.  She will
tell you to first settle her debt with Acar.  Leave.

4) Walk down the road west to the market and then go up through the market and 
enter the building directly north of the market.  The guard will stop you.  Tell
him that you want to see Acar and head to the north-eastern room.  Talk to Acar.
Tell him that you are there to settle Fayina's debt.  Since you won't have the
money, tell him that that surely the money is not all that important.  He will
tell you that he can forget the debt if you carry a message to Boric the 
overseer of the mines.  Take the note and leave his house.  

5) Go into the house directly west of Acar's.  Talk to Boric and tell him that 
you are there to deliver a note.  Give him the note and he will agree to the
proposal.  Leave his house and return to Acar.

6) Talk to Acar and tell him that Boric agreed to the proposal.  He will forgive
Fayina's debt.  Return to her and tell her that she owes Acar nothing.  She 
will tell you a special way to knock and give you a key to the templar's 
storeroom.

7) Go to the very north-east corner of the city and enter use Fayina's key on
the easternmost door on the Templar HQ.  Enter the storeroom and advance to 
the west wall.  You will overhear a conversation between the head Draxan and
Griphens.  They will say how they plan to deceive the Tyrian Templars.  Leave
the storeroom and go to the main door of the building, to the west.

8) Use the door and knock twice, then once.  Enter, go straight north and talk
to the head templar.  Tell him that the Draxans plan to kill them all.  He 
will want proof.  Tell him that the proof is in the room to the east.  He will
"accidently" drop the key.  Use it on the door to the east and kill the little
monster.  Enter and use the closet at the bottom of the room.  You will find
a journal of the Draxan commander.  

9) You can give the journal to the head templar for some experience.  Then, 
use the cabinet in the top of the eastern room twice to enter it.  When you
appear, the Draxans will all leave through the cabinet (you can't stop them), 
leaving Kaleobuta alone.  Kill her and she will leave a document saying how 
she planned to ally with the Draxans.  This is the proof you needed.  Open
the eastern door and leave the templar HQ.

10) Return to Arslan and show him the proof.  Tell him that you are ready to
go to the Veiled Alliance.  Follow him to the bathhouse in the southwest corner
of the city.  He will leave you there.  Open the door and walk in.  You will
be attacked by 3 giant skeletons.  Beat them and enter the room in the north-
west corner of the building.  Use the fountain to the left of the cabinet and
then use the open cabinet to enter the Veiled Alliance HQ.

Veiled Alliance Headquarters
----------------------------

1) When you appear, Matthias will talk to you.  He will tell you about the
Veiled Alliance and about the other members.

2) Go to the room directly east of the place where you first meet Matthias 
and talk to Aleka, the woman behind the desk.  She will tell you about the 
other Veiled alliance members including Tasarla, and Romila.  She will give you
a password to tell to Tasarla so that she will recognize you as a Veiled 
Alliance member.

3) Go to the southeast corner of the building and you will come to a meeting
Romila is holding.  Tell her that you believe action is the way to go and she
will tell you to come to her chambers after the meeting.  When the meeting
ends, simply follow her to her chambers in the southwest corner of the 
compound.  She will then inform you that the Draxans must be hiding in Kalak's
pyramid and tell you to speak with Tasarla about it.  Leave the Veiled Alliance.

The City of Tyr Again
---------------------

1)  Leave the bathhouse and go to the second merchant to the north (in a booth
with a blue symbol on the top).  Talk to Tasarla and tell her that you want
to buy a jaguar cage.  Then ask for help in getting into the pyramid.  She
will tell you about Kovar, a fanatical templar who should be able to help.
She will also give you citizenship papers with which you can talk to Kovar.

2) Talk the alley directly east and enter the first door to the north.  Kovar's
guard, Dhukkar will talk to you.  Tell him that you want to see Kovar and then
show him you citizenship papers.  He will tell you that Kovar is gone.  Ask 
him for help in getting into the pyramid and he will tell you to read Kovar's
book.

3) Go to the room to the north and use the bookcase.  Search the shelf and
you will find the stone medallion used to get into the pyramid.  Leave the
house.

4) Go to the north-east corner of the city.  Use the stone medallion (it will
be just called a key) into the base of the statue to open up the way into the
pyramid.  Now just enter it.

The Pyramid of Kalak
____________________

1) Upon entering the pyramid, the quickest way through it is to go through
the grate to the north of the entrance.  Just use the grate, and you will
get through to the other side.
2) Head north till you come to a statue.  Shoot its head.  Walk west past
the statue. You will be forced to fight some Draxans here. 
3) You will notice that in the centre there is a garden.  Walk around it,
so you will end up near the staircase to the garden on its west side.
There is a grate built into the west wall beside the staircase.  Use it to
go to the room beyond.  
4) In this room you will find a prisoner in the cage.  Don't walk towards the
cage, as you will get hurt, and you can speak to him from a distance.  He is
a sick preserver and he can be helped with some grapes or berries for bonus
experience.
5) Head through to the door to the north (you shall get an option to listen on
the conversation in the room beyond the door, but you should surprise the 
talkers instead.  Kill the men in the room, and use the cabinet to warp 
yourself into the middle of the garden.  The emissary of the Dragon will
attack you, slay her quickly and the garden will go apeshit killing most of
her minions.  Get the items from her body (particularily the Life Stealer)
and return to Veiled Alliance HQ the same way you came in.

Veiled Alliance HQ again
________________________

1) The HQ is under attack by Draxans.  Help Matthias, and Romila, and save
as many other alliance members as possible.
2) With Matthias head through the secret door, and proceed to the room with
the urn of Utaci (east).
3) The Lord Warrior will steal the urn and teleport away.  Destroy his
minions and go to talk to Matthias in the meeting room after the HQ has
been cleared of Draxans.  
4) Matthias will quest you to find the 4 relics: Hammer of Promere, Fire Ruby
Cup of Life, and Lyre of Winds.  He will also tell you that the cup is in
the hands of the local alliance healer, Silvan.
5) Go to Silvan (west, just below the stairs) and talk to her about the cup.
Take it from her when offered.
6) Return to the room where you fought Lord Warrior's minions (the room where
Lord Warrior made his brief appearance) and take the damaged tapestry off the
northern wall (it is the blue tapestry).
At this point you could go to get the Fire Ruby, but getting Promere's Hammer
makes more sense.            
7) Return to Tyr.

Under Tyr (optional)
____________________

1) This quest will yield a +4 sword, Bloodletter.  Go to the inn owned by
Zambon, in the north east of town (west of the pyramid entrance) and use
the chest behind the owner.  It will open revealing a passage below Tyr.
2) Use the passage.  Talk to the man you see downstairs, and express your
good desires, and ask him to let you into the sorrows.  He will move away,
so go through the narrow passage.
3) You will see a big hole in the west end.  You can't enter this room yet,
instead head north to a building with a man lying in bed.
This is the leader of the bandits, so talk to hhim, and express your desire
to help him.  
4) Return to the hole, and tell the guards you've come to investigate.  Look
into the hole, and 3 Umber Hulks will appear.  Defeat them, and return to the
leader again.
5) This time Umber Hulks broke through and kidnapped his men.  Go to the west
wall, and you should be able to find a narrow passage in the pile of rubble
along the west wall.  This passage will lead you into the adjoining area.
6) Once you enter the next area you will have to fight a lot of random 
Umber Hulks, Feyrs and Revenants.  There is a good deal of random miscallenous
treasure scattered about.
7) Go as far west as possible, and you should hear cries for help.  Turn north
and follow the passage till you come to a man covered in rubble.   Defeat the
nearby monsters, and use the rubble to free the man.  He will ask to be 
escorted back to the exit.  Do so for experience.
8) Now, take the passage south from the fork where the cries for help were 
heard.  Follow it, until you come to the big room, which was once a temple.
In the chest at the northern end, rests the Bloodletter.  Retrieving it
will cause the Golem guardians to come alive.
9) Once you get the Bloodletter, return to Tyr.

The Jungle Quests (optional)
____________________________

There might be a better way of doing this, but if there isn't use this:

1) Upon entering the forest, walk to the hole in the bush, which is just
north west of the lake.  Therein you can find a boots of speed if you move
one of the barrels away.  
2) For 3000 exp you can go to the pillar in the centre of the ruined buildings
and find some serpent tracks on the ground (must be wearing the boots!).
3) Next, you should proceed north, through the jungle into the next area.
There you will find a mercenary band.  Agree to help them, they will give you
a conch to blow when you are ready for them to attack the yuan-ti and 1000 exp.  
Return to the previous area.
4) Go to a hole in the bush in the south very south of the area...in the west
side.  There you will find a druidess, Dayria who will tell you that she is 
being held prisoner by the wards of the evil yuan-ti sorcerer Soltriss.  Agree
to help her.  She will send you to her garden to get her some roots.  The
garden is in another bush hole, barely north west of Daryia.   After defeating 
a small encounter you can pluck the roots from their places. Upon return,
she will quest you to bring her some berries, which are in a hole on the west
wall of the area.  Enter it, kill zombies, pick berries, return.  Finally
Daryia will ask you to help her defeat the yuan-ti sorcerer.  Agree to it.
5) Proceed towards the mine entrance, which is in the very north west of the   
area. You will be contacted by a group of halflings inviting you to their 
village.  Their leader Snaggle lives in the first tree, and that's where he 
will lead you if you follow him.  If you talk to him in his tree, he will 
inform you that he is being attacked relentlessly by yuan-ti, and some 
halflings are missing.  He is also searching for the lost pool of Heroism. 
Take the flask which lies on the floor behind him.  Agree to help.  There are 
a couple of things you can do with halflings  from the other trees: go 
hunting, or pick berries, but both actions appearuseless.
6) Go to a hole in the ground, south of the mine entrance.  Enter it, and you
will have to fight a squad of yuan-ti.  Defeat them, and proceed north.
Duck into the alcove in the west wall, when you "hear great many warriors".
Wait in the alcove, and you will receive 1000 exp for dodging some fighters.
Continue north, and you will have to fight another small group of yuan-ti.
Now, head west to the big fountain.  Use it to rest, or fill up your flask
(from Snaggle's tree) to have some portable rest!  Return to where you fought
the second yuan-ti squad, and exit the tunnel to the north.   Now, head north
and east to the office of Jestris.  Talk to him, and offer to negotiate with
Tantris the mad warrior through the means of a note.  Talk to Jentris's scribe
and get him to write you a note to "Dear Tantris, don't let Soltriss summon
El, or your a wimp".  Now, take this note, and use it on a rock.  Move towards
the centre (but not too close) and use the rock to throw it at Tantris.
7) Tantris will read the note,  but won't act upon it, so move up, and when 
you're within the temple, blow the conch to signal the mercenaries.
8) As the mercs attack, kill Tantris, and Jestris will attempt to sieze power.
He will be unsuccesful, and El will appear inevitably killing him, and the
mercenary leader.  Kill El, and all the remaining yuan-ti.  You will get
mega exp bonus.  Take El's Drinker from El's dead body.  Return to the hole
in the ground, and enter it.  Now move towards the centre of the area, and 
you will bump into Soltriss.  Tell him El is dead, and kill him, thus breaking
the curse on Dariya.
9) After you kill Soltriss, attack the branches blocking the entrance up
from El's tomb.  Go through the entrance (a half-giant still won't fit)
and use the big rock to open the entrance to the missing halfling group.
Talk to Halla, in the south west corner of the room, disregarding anything
Leaftop might say.  Ask Halla about rocksap, tell her to form a plan, and 
suggest she warn you when Runner is coming, and to block entrance with 
rocksap.  She will act upon your suggestion, so use the rock again, to close
the entrance when she say she's ready.
10) When Runner comes, attack him, and kill him.  Take the map from his
body, and give to Halla when she asks for it.
11) Wait till all halflings leave before you do, to collect maximum experience
bonus.  Then exit the area through the same exit you came through.
12) If you need giant snake eggs, you will have to go south, of the main
area to where there is a bucn of coiled snakes.  Taraxis will talk to you
and try to get you to drink poison.  Don't, move south towards his treasure
pile, and fall into the pit.  Take eggs, walk around till Taraxis offers you
up, and accept to drink the poison.  Now, kill him when topside, and hurry
to get yourself healed.
13) Return topside.  Last important thing is to free the chained up girl at
the centre of the jungle by breaking the lock or paying off Ptar the giant.
Either way will do.


The Mines
_________

1) To enter the mines, you will need to buy a key from the mine director,
in the building west of Acar.  The mine director will sell it to you for
1000 golds.
2) Go to the mine entrance in the north west of the Jungle.  Use the door
to open the mines.
3) You will talk to Melody, the chief of the mines, pretend to be the 
team from Urik, and you will be quickly ushered in.
4) Go to the main staging area (where there is 4 tunnel entrances) and
take the middle one on the west wall.  Go west again, and from the 
digsite, recover a wheel lying there in the north east corner.
5) With the wheel, return east back the way you came, and go north.  
Use the wheel on the over turned ore car.  Use the orecar to place it back
on the tracks.
6) Return to the main staging area, and go north, north, and north again.
Then, go to the east.  In this room there is fresh airflow.  Set the fan
to the west, go west.  Set fan south, go south, set the two northern fans
west, go west.  Go west again (on your way you will be ambushed by Umber
Hulks, kill them, and you will remain blocked in by rubble, wait a while
and dwarf Winchester will release you, giving you a whistle to call him
in similar circumstance).
7) Set fan west, go west.  Set fan north, go north, set fan west, go west,
set fan north, go north, set fan to the west to disspate the poison gas,
and talk to the guy in the south west corner of the room.  Get him to give
you the "key" for the elevator.  Use it, to memorize the elevator controls.
8) Return to the staging area, and use the console panel by the southern
most exit on the west wall.  Go into the cart, and you will appear by the 
elevator.  Use the panel, to descend.

The Lower Levels
________________

1) Talk to the miners about the deaths and disappearances.  Take the orecar 
around the place and Eventually, you should end up at Hedro's Acre.  
Enter the doorway in the middle of the plot, and talk to the master 
switchman (actually, talk to the tube).
Ask him for directions to Luckout Tunnels.  Go there, and look at the empty
dig site..  At this point, the killers will become active.
2) Walk around until you meet up with a group of gray-cloaked miners.  If
you try talking to them, they will be described as "tired looking".  They
also carry axes +3 instead of picks.  Attack them.  After killing them, make
your way to the Old Dig.  There should be several mindflayers there.  Kill
them, and follow the escaping flayer through the secret doorway.
3) Upon entering the doorway, the flayers will collapse the passage, and 
attack you.  Kill them, then talk to the slave in the upper-right of the 
area.  He is a decoy, but follow his instructions none-the less.
4) Move to the area north, and you shall appear in the kitchen.  Open up
the crates in the corner of the room.  In one you should find some poison,
so dump all the vials into the soup.  This will kill off the flayers in the 
main dining room.  
5) Move to the south west of this area, and kill the master cook, and his
slaves.  This should yield an important key piece.
6) Move to the junction north, and follow the slave's instructions: move
west, and then south between the pillars.  Even though you just walked 
into a trap, its easier that way.  You have been trapped in the game master's
arena.  He will send some wimpy monsters against you, so use this opportunity
to grab the grappling hook, and use it on the balcony on which the game
master is standing..  Kill him to get another key piece.  
7) Return to the main junction, and this time head east.  You will appear 
in the lab.  Search the bookcase in the room immediately south east of your 
entrance to get some chemicals, in particular compund E4.  
8) Move now to the very south east of the lab, to a room with a lot of vials
and laboratory apparatus.  You will hear the flayer scientist discussing
his experiments.  While his assistant is out of the storage area, use the vial
of E4 on one of the test tube racks in the storage area (it will only go into
the right one).
9) The mindflayers will pick it up, and blow themselves up, making your fight 
a lot easier.  Pick up a key from the dead flayer, and use it to open a safe
in a room slightly north of the main lab area.  In the safe you will find 
the third key piece and a potion.
10) Return to the main 3-way junction.  Head north, defeat the guards, and 
insert the 3 keys into the door in the north wall.  Go through the door,
beat the fight, and destroy the Elder Brain.  Now, search the body of the
dead flayer leader, and use his key to open the locked door to the east.
Open the chest, and get the key for the locked door to the north east.
Go through the door, and take the exit east.  You will appear in Promere's 
Forge.  
11) As you enter, your way will be blocked again.  Defeat the Earth Drake's
and walk up to the throne, and use it.  This will activate the two guardian
golems.  Defeat them, and take the hammer.  If you have El's Drinker, cast it
into the lava pool.  Also, you may open the chest for the best armor in the
game, and a fan necessary for Lyre of the Winds.
12) To get back out, wield the hammer with your lead character, and attack
the rubble blocking your way.  Upon your return you will be mind-scanned  
(a harmless procedure).  Return to Melody, and get your reward.
13) Go to the south gate of Tyr, and talk to the caravan master.  Then
go to the gate again.

The Jaann
_________                        
The Jann are necessary to repair the damaged tapestry.

1) Go to the south of Tyr, and talk to the caravan master at the exit, in the 
eastern building.  Ask him about leaving caravans, and exit Tyr to the
south.  Before you leave, make sure you have some dye, if not you can buy it  
from the Elf in the Shadow Square.
2) Make your way towards the Jaann camp in the middle of the oasis.  Talk to
the girl you freed, Magnolia, for she is in the eastern tent.  Then go back
up, and talk to the Sultan (he is in the tent with the guards in front of it)
and pick your reward.  Return to Magnolia.
3) Magnolia will request your help in trapping a deceiful member of the Jaann.
Agree to help, then find the templar camping in the desert south of the camp.
Threaten to kill him, and he will leave.  Take his coat, and use it to get 
a thread.  Take the thread, but now wear the coat with your lead character.
Wait a while, and the traitor will come.  He will hand you a note.
4) Return to Magnolia and tell her you got the note.  Now go to the Sultan and
tell him about it.  You will get experience and treasure trove access.
5) Now you should be able to visit the weaver in the north-east hut with the
purpose of fixing the damaged tapestry from the Veiled Alliance HQ.  Ask
her to fix it, and she will, demanding the thread from the templar's robe
and the dye as ingredients.


Veiled Alliance HQ again
________________________

1) Talk to Matthias to obtain your reward for recovering the hammer.  
2) Go to the room where the urn was stolen from, and where you got the 
damaged, now fixed by Jaans tapestry.
3) Hang the tapestry on its proper resting place.
4) In the bottom left corner of the room, there is a brazier, search it to
get a coal, and use the coal on the tapestry depicting the volcano.
5) Use the tapestry to enter it.

The Volcano
___________

When you appear here, there will be sevaral things to do:

1) There are some drakes to the east.  Their hides may be sold at Tyr's 
marketplace.
2) Further south, by a rock, there is a Draxan ambush.  No choice but to
defeat them.
3) Further yet, you may see another group of Draxans.  This is a camp, and
it must be raided before you will gain access to the temple entrance.
4) Towards the south end, you will see a yellow creature (Verni) surrounded
by a band of fire elementals.  You must rescue this creature, as it (Soriss)
is necessary for further plot development.  After you rescue it, it will 
run off to the temple.
5) In the very south-west corner, there is a bunch of red and green verni,
these are farmers of no real importance.
6) Once you explore the cave, and want to progress (make sure you rescue 
Sorris) go to the west, where a group of brown verni is.  Then, ask to 
enter the temple.  You will be refused access, but at the same time Draxans
will attack.  If you kill the Draxan's and clear out the camp mentioned in
3) then you will be allowed inside, with Rhona's (guard captain's) permission. 

Inside The Temple
_________________

1) You will witness a meeting.  Don't disturb it.
2) After the meeting is over, go talk to Forni, she's in the north passage,
first eastern branch.  Forni will ask you to investigate the murder of Sorval.
To successfuly complete your investigation:
a) Go to the main hall (by the Seal Room) and talk to Nostermus to get 
permission to access all of the relevant areas (tell him you're investigating
Sorval's death).
b) Head to to the north wing.  In the centre, there are three rooms with
closed doors.  Open the east door, and take and read the book in the room.
This will tell you to search the beast statue at the scene of death.
Go back, and head to to the south wing this time.
c) In the south wing, go to the statues standing over a lake of magma.  Search
the toppled statue to get some glassy powder, and search the beast to find
the note Sorval has hidden within (NOTE: you will not find the note unless you
read Sorval's book first).
d) Head back, and tell Nostramus about the note.  He will call another meeting
and proclain a murder is loose.  
e) Head to the north wing, and ask the glass blower, and Zydeko (in the north
western corner) about the glass powder.
f) Head to the south wing, and talk to the kid you rescued from the Fire 
Elementals, and talk to him (very north western corner).  On the way there
you may be stopped by some rebellious verni, but tell them that you're 
investigating Sorval's death, and will remain neutral.  Ask the kid about
Sorval, and his books.  Tell the kid its okay to give back the book he 
swiped.  Read the book,  particularily make sure you read the chapter about
where Sorval kept his journal.
g) Go to the archives in the central part, right next to the seal room, and 
search through the bookcase till you find Sorval's journal. (NOTE: this will 
only work if you have read his book on statues).  With the journal you should 
find a small key.  
h) Go to the northern wing, and ask the weapon smith in the north western 
corner about the key.  He will tell you its from a locket which was buried 
with Sorval.  Return to the central part, and go to the tombs of dead verni 
(first passage on the left coming back from north wing).
g) You will be informed by the tomb's guard that a looting took place and 
jewelery was stolen out of Sorval's tomb.  Walk out, and you will bump into 
Nostramus who will inform you that Ulbin, one of the visiting humans has been 
caught with all the stolen jewelery.
h) Find Rhona (in fact, she will be looking for you, too) and ask her to see
Ulbin.
j) Go to the jail, in the northern wing, and talk to the blue verni at the
desk, then use the door, to knock on it, and get the guard (Silvani) to open
it.  
h) Next talk to Ulbin who is held in the northern cell.  He will be rude to 
you, and won't give you the locket.  Talk to Silvani, and ask him to help you
scare Ulbin.  Make sure you stress that you won't hurt Ulbin.  Next follow
Silvani to Ulbin's cell, and walk towards Ulbin (he will be screaming for
you to get back) until he divulges the location of the locket.
i) Go back to the central part.   Go to the resting area (first passage west
in the passageway to south wing) and use the rock in the back of the northern
room.  You will find the locket.  Use your key on it, and read the note.
j) Immediately, you will hear a thump, and you will find dead Nostramus,
Galnix the murderer and other prominent verni at the seal room.  Tell them
that Galnix is the murderer.  They will try to hold the seal closed, but
won't be able to and shall fall into the opened staircase.  
You will be asked to descend and to retrieve the fire ruby.  Go down the 
stairs.

Inside the Volcano

1) Head straight east along the southern edge of the lava lake.  You will be
ambushed by Draxans.  Kill them, proceed until a rock with children on
it falls down from above.  Use your grappling hook on a pillar on the west
side of the rock to rescue the children.  Escort the kids back to the exit.  
Continue on east, and then north.
2) You will have to fight more Draxans, and then they will blow up a bridge.
Use your grappling hook from pillar to pillar to shimmy across the broken
parts of the bridge.  You will also have to fight some Draxans on the bridge.
3) Once you get off the demolished bridge, proceed to east along the southern
shore until you find a place where you will be asked if you want to jump
across the magma.  Say yes.
4) Now you will be on a rock puzzle.  This puzzle has a time limit.  The 
fourth explosion will kill you, so hurry.  Some bricks make others appear
and disappear.  Experiment, there is more than one way to solve the puzzle.
In the north edge of the puzzle there is a pair of Drake claws that the verni
smith can make into +3 gloves.  Getting them, however will slow you down.
5) Once you get to the other edge of the lava puzzle, you will have to fight
some Draxans again, then follow the escaping templar.
6) Once you catch up to him, he will summon some skeletons, and toss the ruby
onto a rock.  You must defeat him and the skeletons before the ruby sinks into
the lava.
7) Once you get the ruby, hurry back out (timed once again) and use the ruby
on the seal to close it.  You will get MEGA experience bonus.
You may wish to get the claws made into +3 gloves, but it will take the smith
almost 5 days.  Also, to get back, you have to use the fire ruby on the 
tapestry with pyramids on it, which hangs in the room in just north of the
temple entrance.

_______________________

1) Talk to Matthias on your return to get a 25 000 exp bonus for finding 
the Fire Ruby.  Return to the room with the Volcano tapestry, and use the
now fixed tapestry on the empty spot in the wall where it used to hang,
if you haven't done so already.
2) Now, use a fan on it (you can buy a fan from the Elf at the Shadow Square)
and enter the tapestry.

The Mountains
_____________

1) You will appear besides a cracked dead tree, which constitutes your way
back to the veiled alliance.  You are in the middle of a giant's village.
The giant's have been befallen with several cataclysms, as you can find out
by talking to any of them.
2) From the hut north east of the dead tree retrieve the white object on
the floor, the canvass.  
3) From the smithy's hut retrieve the tall wooden beam, which stands in 
the north west corner of the hut.
4) Head to the east side of the village.  You now have a choice to enter 
two tunnels: northern and southern one.
5) The southern tunnel will put you on a field where a Giant farmer is vainly
trying to vanquish a plague of bugs.  You may get a 5000 exp bonus by picking
up the plant sprayer, and using it on all the weeds in the area.  This,
however is purely optional.
6) Go into the northern tunnel, and go straight through to exit at its eastern
end.  Talk to the Giant there (not important) but be sure to pick up the 
rudder which is lying in the bushes just north of the Giant.
7) Return back to the tunnel you came through, but this time enter the opening
in its northern wall.
8) You will appear at a campsite of Beasthead giants.  Talk to one of them,
and he will tell you he wishes a renegade group of giants, Wolfpack to be
destroyed (agree to help).  Now, walk to the boat that's besides the entrance
and use it.  Place mast, canvass and rudder on the boat, and sail to the 
nearby island.
9) At this island, pick up the axe, and use it on the vine covered tree which
is right besides the axe.  Pick up the vines.  You will be asked by the 
Beasthead guard to go see his leader, Kaign.  Do so, talk to Kaign.  Go to
the vine bridge you see, and use your cut down vines on it, to mend it.
Walk across thhe bridge, and talk to the girl in the cage.  Agree to free her.
Return to Kaign, and just try to exit this area through the exit to the north
west.  Kaign will attack you.  Kill him, take the key off his body, and free
thhe girl (by using the cage, and selecting apprioriate option from the dialog
presented).                       
10) This time do exit the area in the north west, and you shall appear in 
front of a hut.  Just to the left of the hut, is a crowbar (its hard to see
as its partly obstructed by fog) pick it up, and use it on the plank to
theh right of the hut's entrance.  The plank will come off.
Inside the hut is a place to rest, and an old hag who gives you a sap story
about the flute, and why she should have it.  Don't ever give it to her
since she just runs off with it.
Now, use the plank on the gap to the west of the hut...i.e. walk to where
you are the closest to the other side.  The plank will form a bridge, so
cross it.  Fight the snake encounter, then follow the northern edge of this
area till you come across a "rod" lying on the ground.  Pick it up, and use
it in the empty hole in the very north of the area.  Using it there will 
create another lever.  Use the lever to disable the trap which guards a small
blue object in a niche south east of the newly inserted lever.  Take that
object, its 1/2 of the flute you need.
11) Return across the plank.  Now, enter the tunnel other than the one 
you just came through from the Beastheads.  You will appear in a place with
an old man in his hut, a path up a mountain side (close to where you first
appear from the eastern hole) and another hole to the west.  Through the
hole in the west, you may use a pick on a tombstone in the tunnel to dig up 
some experience bonus.  Talking to the old man is virtually fruitless.
While this is optional, you must go up the mountain  path.  Once you do, you 
will have to fight a tough air elemental encounter. Once you defeat it, walk 
west to the cave entrance blocked by a giant boulder.  Use the boulder to 
move it aside, and enter.  Follow the tunnel south till you come to an altar 
with the other flute piece on it.  Pick it up combining the two chunks and 
go through the hole in the tunnel's wall (on a short edge of the northern wall) 
to return to the hut.
12) Proceed down the path north from the hut (survive the few fireballs and
lightning blasts) and where the mouth of the passage opens up into the Drake's
eyire, use the flute.  The Drakes will run away.  Enter the eyire, and step
on the hexagon in its north west.  You will be teleported to a small room.
This room has the hexagon, and a pressure pad diagonal to it.  Step off the 
hexagon, and step on the square diagonal to you.  This will destroy the rocks 
blocking you from the Drake's nest.  Step back onto the hexagon, and walk 
across the rocks to the Drake's nest.  Defeat the Drake's and use the 
southern edge of the nest to free the Giantess within.  She will give you her
cloak as a reward, and you can also take the Lyre of the Winds from the nest.
Don't forget to pick up a Drake's hide for your reward.
13) Return to the village through the passage south west of the nest.
14) As a reward, the smith will make you an excellent armor out of the Drake's
hide.
15) Return to the Veiled Alliance through the tree.

Back at Veiled Alliance
_______________________

1) Talk to Matthias on any of the topics, to obtain the experience bonus for
retrieving the Lyre.  Also familiarize yourself with what's about to happen. 
If you want to get a magical ring, talk to Romillia as well, and then search
the northern drain in her room.

Lord Warrior's Crypt
____________________

1) Exit the HQ, and proceed to the north end of Tyr.  Beside the building with
the spy master, you will notice a building with two Golems inside it.  Enter 
it, kill the Golems and their master, and use the tapestry on the north
wall of the room with the Golems.  Now use each one of your four relics 
(order not important) on the exposed door.
2) Enter the door to the Crypt.
3) A templar will threaten you, so talk to him, and threaten him yourself.
Find out all the info you may find necessary.   Now, go to the chained up
Templar Korvas.  Talk to him, and agree to free him in exchange for his help
in defeating the Lord Warrior.  Be sure to ask him about the other Templars, 
so that he gives you a piece of Lord Warrior's diary with his treachery
clearly spelled out.  Now, look at the niche just south west (its on the north
wall) of the place where Korvas was chained up, it will lead you to the lower  
level.  Go down.
4) Talk to the lone templar in the middle room.  He is the leader, and through
the dialogue, you should tell him that Lord Warrior intends to betray all.
Give him the journal page when prompted for it, and he will give you a key
to the Hall of Heroes beyond which is the Lord Warrior, as well as the 
directions to the lightining rod, allowing access to the actual King's Crypt
where Lord Warrior resides.
5) To get the lighting rod, go east from the Lord Warrior, and look at the 
niche in the south east of the corridor.  Use it to go down to the next level
below, and search the niches there for treasure and the lightning rod.
Go back up the way you came to the top again.  Make your way to the giant
locked door, and use the key from the Templar leader on it for it to open.
6) Defeat the warrior guards, and use the lightning rod on the giant iron 
door to open it.  (NOTE: Its immaterial if Korvas is alive or not, he was only
needed for that journal page).
7) Go through the iron door, and defeat the minions Lord Warrior will summon
against you.  He will escape through the portal.  Search the sarcophagus in
the western section of this room, to find the elemental sceptre.  Go to the
west section and use the sceptre in turn on the fireplace, rock, font, and 
bellows.  Take the runes so produced, and insert each one into its proper 
place on the arch/portal.  Once all are inserted, go through.

Cosmic Temple
_____________

1) Defeat the fight, and a pyreene will approach you.  She will tell you her
sap story, but the gist is that she can heal you.  Get her to do so.  Then,
proceed to the east, and then north west at the instersection, to battle the
group of giant skeletons and other undead.  After the fight, search all the
corpses of the dead skeletal warriors to get the cosmic sceptre.  Now, go
to one of the entrances to the giant ring in the centre of the area, and use
the sceptre on it (the symbol on the top of the entrance is a good place to
use the sceptre), you may have to fight some elementals.  The doorway will 
become unblocked, so enter the ring.
2) You will get a "cinematic", and Lord Warrior, some elementals, the 
tarresque, and a horde of skeletal warriors will attack.  Defeat the fight,
and quickly place the 4 relics in the appriopriate statues (hammer: north
east; ruby: north west; lyre: south west; cup: south east) to seal the urn
before the pieces of the terrasque reform.
Do this and you have completed the game!
