I try to make these hints as thorough as possible. For the sidequests, you can try them in any order you like. I've just put them in the sidequest section in every chapter. I've played this game 3 times and still don't get bored with it. So, buckle your belt and get ready for the ADVENTURE of a life time.
Q: What is my objective in chapter one?
A: Locklear and Owyn escort a Moredhel prisoner named Gorath, to Krondor. The strategic and political importance of this trip South will become clear soon enough...

You may click on your RETREAT button, (it could take several tries), and bypass this trap, taking another route to Krondor; or you could attempt to "solve" the puzzle. In this case, walking between like colored crystals will trigger a magical lightning bolt that could kill a member of your party. Try walking around the deadly pairs. Tap the "G" key on your keyboard if you need extra help.
Q: My characters suddenly became sick or poisoned. Why?
A: Be sure to "examine" every package of rations you find in the world. Click on the object with your right mouse button, then pay close attention to the information in the upper left corner of the display. If your characters DO become poisoned you will have to find some anti-venom, or pay for a cure in a local temple. Restoratives and plenty of rest will also help heal this condition. Getting "sick" from eating spoiled rations can usually be overcome by sleeping for more than 12 hours.

You'll find the grate in a room East of where you found James. When you see a ladder, click on it with your left mouse button. From the "lock screen" drag James' key to the lock and release your button. (HINT: Try right clicking on the lock for more information.) If you've found the correct ladder, the lock will open and you will have successfully completed the first chapter!

Q: How do I cross the bridge that leads out of the Northlands?
A: Before you talk to Moreaulf (using the spell "And the Light Shall Lie, of course) you should attempt to cross the bridge by heading south past Armangar.

Q: Where is Nalar's Rib?
A: Nalar's Rib is an extremely powerful, yet non-essential item that you may want to spend some time looking for. It can be tricky to find. First, you must collect the emerald and the note from the skull at Sar-Sargoth. Then, when you leave the city, head south -- off the main road -- until you hit a mountain and a graveyard. Go around the West side of the mountain and continue heading south until you trigger a magical trap with three Ogre magicians in it. Once this is dealt with, head SW and look for a large stone slab among a group of trees. Nalar's Rib will kill all the Nalar's tribe in the forest, so you'll get an easier combat after using that.

Q: How can I help Tamney the Minstrel?
A: Tamney the Minstrel can be found in a barn near the town of Dencamp on the Teeth. To open the barn door, at least one member of the party must have a STRENGTH rating of 30 or more. If this is a problem, you can buy a strength booster called "Fadamor's Formula" at a shop nearby. The geomancy stones Tamney asks about are in a cavern East of Dencamp. There are two side roads that lead North to the cave entrance. Once inside you will find the stones in a chest to the North.
Q: How do I get past the goblins guarding the pass into the Northlands?
A: There are FAR too many goblins guarding the entrance from the Kingdom into the Northlands. You have no other choice but to pay them what they are asking. The quickest way to raise the money is by selling the diamonds you got from Tamney. It might be worth your while to search around for a shop that will give you the best price.
Q: Where can I find the war plans in Raglam?
A: Captain Kroldech is occupying one of the houses in Raglam, and he has the plans. To get the plans away from him, talk to the engineer who lives in the house next to the tavern in Raglam.
Q: How can I make the engineer tell me where the missing catapult
A: The engineer will only talk to the group if Patrus plays the lute POORLY. The trick here is to lower Patrus' barding skill. The easiest and safest way to do that is to get him drunk!
Q: I fired the catapult. What do I do next?
A: The engineer will tell you where to find the missing catapult part. Retrieve it from the box near the river (be careful, it is trapped), then head to the catapult and click on it with your left mouse button. Once the catapult has been activated, head back to Raglam and click on Kroldech's house. The plans are inside.
Q: Where can I find the invisible Moredhel spellcasters?
A: After returning to Duke Martin with the Kroldech's plans, the Duke will give you one more task. This one will involve finding six invisible Moredhel spellcasters and eliminating them. (They are SE of Dencamp on the Teeth, near a house and well, which are both South of the main road.)
Q: How do I defeat the six Moredhel spellcasters?
A: THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT COMBAT SCENARIO and it may be necessary to try it many times before you succeed. Here are some tips: Use restoratives before the combat to boost your characters up to full HEALTH, and use them during combat if possible. Move your fighters into their ranks -- they can't use their magic if you are standing right next to them. Also, make sure your armor and weapons are in peak condition, and if you have any potions or weapon or armor enhancers -- use them!

A : There's no sidequest in this chapter, but you can find magic scroll and one deadly sword around, like :

Q: How do I defeat the Pantathian serpent priests outside Malac's
A: If you head East towards Malac's Cross, watch out for the Pantathian serpent priests surrounding the town. There are a lot of them and they are very difficult to kill. Stock up on restoratives and use them before and during the battle if possible. This would be a good place to use your armor and weapons enhancers, as well. (HINT: You might pay a visit to Malac's Dragon while you are in the area. It is NW of Malac's Cross.)

Q: What is my objective in chapter eight?
A: Owyn and Gorath search for Pug and Gamina on a hostile, alien world. It would be a good idea to head north when the chapter begins. Find the marble-looking pillars and click on them. It would also be a good idea to stock up on food...you'll need it in chapter nine!
Q: How do I use magic in chapter eight?
A: To use magic in this strange world, Owyn will first have to find a crystal staff. You can find a crystal staff in one of the dwellings in the NE corner of the island, next to a mountain. There may be others as well. You will also need crystallized manna to "rub" on the staff. Raw manna can be found by left clicking on certain crystal growths out in the world.

A: Gamina is trapped in a crystal cage in an underground cavern. The entrance to the cavern is west of the three bridges, and on the north side of the river.
Q: How do I defeat the Wind Elementals in the underground cavern?
A: The Wind Elementals you will encounter in the underground cavern can ONLY be killed with a spell called "Strength Drain" (This spell is located in the SW corner of the island.) Because the Wind Elementals regain strength and health every turn, you must deplete them completely in order to kill them. The easiest way to do this is to have both Pug and Owyn cast the spell on the same creature. If the first blast doesn't kill it, the second surely will.
Q : Is there any sidequest in this chapter ?
A : There are no more sidequests starting from this chapter. Your objection is clear enough and you won't find any person at all in this journey.

Q: How do I defeat the enemies in the final combat?
A: The cup of Rlln Skrr may be used over and over again in Chapter Nine to learn spells. Pug will eventually learn every spell in the game, but this will take time and use up a lot of rations. Just use SKIN DRAGON and FIRESTORM repeatedly and you'll destroy Makala once and for all !!!!
