                      - WALKTHROUGH FOR QUEST FOR GLORY 5 -
                       Version 1.2 28th December 98 by Ack
    Do not read if you don't want to know the plot and happenings of this
    Okay, that out of the way.. spoil yourself silly now.
    A couple of stuff to do:
    - Any character should go to the right of the screen once they visited
      Hall of Kings and talk to the lion Rakeesh and he will give you
    either a
      grapel, ring of truth option, and a katta pin. 
    - Save often. And don't stay up too late playing it. hehe.
    - Buy a pair of magic magnets from magic shop when you start the game. 
    - Time limit for rites changes with difficulty settings.
    Little something I like to point out first:
    Different methods of playing can be achieved. This IS NOT the only way
    play this game.. but i'm just a maniac and like to use force. Do try
    SKIP to the botom for hints and TIPS, CHEATS, and BUGS bypassing most 
    of the spoils if u don't want a total spoil. Btw, some info might not be
    correct due to my bad memory. hehe. And also don't mind the typos..
    When i say stuff like wack him silly, or blow them away i mean you will 
    have to play for yourself and figure out how to beat them. I dont have
    tell you to use Protection spell, use a particular weapon, or use Zap
    I figure you are smarter than that.. hope i'm right!
    Quest 1: Rite of Freedom
    There are five villages.. i suggest you complete them all as you can
    stuff and boost skills. The item you want is the village sigils, it's
    in the 
    biggest house usually in each village, inside a large box. Give the
    sigils to the guards to complete the rite. Just hack them all to death,
    Paladins can try to peace the area and go to big building and get it..
    death involve. If u are behind, save all villages for a tie.
    Quest 2: Rite of Conquest
    The island is south west, the small one next to big one. You need to
    the boat in the morning from Andre. 
    You can either climb up the the drain pipe as a thief and blackjack the 
    general. You must not sound the alarm on your way in if u want to do it 
    thief style. Blackjack everyone and try to go into the upper doors, he
    come out. If that dont work just blackjack everyone and kill the
    he will come out, run far away from him and turn on stealth. He won't
    see u 
    and starts peeing near the corner next to toilet or just stand around.
    him there. Pick up stuff and return.
    As a fighter just belt everything up and kill him. Paladins do the
    don't bother doing it honorably, the general doesn't deserve it. 
    Magicians just load up on reversal spells and when the centaur starts 
    shooting spells at you, use trigger on him.. kaboom! Or you can do it
    harder way with firebolts or throwing.. though i prefer kaboom
    instead! :)
    If you didn't kaboom the guy then check his body for a neat spell..
    Quest 3: Rite of Valor and Science Island 
    You need these items, BEESWAX (pillar north of town), FEATHERS
    (pegasus place 
    on top of island, look below for info), SPEAR, throwable items, one
    the Artichoke, some ANCHOVIES from Andre talk to him about small fish,
    one AMPHORAE from wolfie. 
    Combine the pizza with the fish. Then go to science island break the 
    break handle, replace it with spear. Jump on the gondola, throw items
    break or use force bolt spell on it. Go to science island, do the test 
    (the small glowing square next to big gear), enter and give the A&A
    pizza to 
    scientist. Use beeswax on the wings, and then use feathers. Once on
    island use amphora on green/yellow liquid. Then fight the hydra, accept 
    Elsa's help.. you fight (if u don't it's bug time!), let her torch, or
    versa.. torch the heads by using firebolt or torch from thief guild.
    the cave, take EVERYTHING. Use magnets and go home.. give guards the
    tooth and Salim (zonked out healer dude) the scales.
    Quest 4: Rite of Destiny & Balloon thingamajig ;-)
    You need these items; bed sheets from inn, balloon picture from
    Wolfie, goo 
    from hydra island, brazier from Marrak, and a rope. Show Ann the
    picture and 
    then give her bed sheets. Show marrak picture and buy brazier. Go to
    island and exit up the top left. Use the small panel to raise the
    combos are 100 and 50 closed. Use sowed up balloon on it then rope,
    then use 
    goo. Use brazier and then use tinder box. Houston, we have liftoff!
    Fly north
    west.. keep flying to Delos!
    I suggest you do this early in the day so there is enough time. Land
    on the 
    small island with those places, head north and enter the Sibyl's
    Temple, pick
    up flower in water.. and oh, save regularly within these quest. 
    Throw a coin in water.. and then pick up item. Give it to guard, quest
    Note, magic users can gain MAGIC WOOD here, just offer the Dryads
    Hippocrene water from pegasus area.. all of them, so u need to fill up
    Quest 5: Hades: Rite of Courage
    Get 3 amphorae.. fill one up with spoiled water near pillar. These are 
    items u need, all the types of foods from marrak.. including
    chocolate. then 
    head to the pillar north of tinos. The one on the west of island, the
    where it's serene and peaceful. 
    When u get there, move to the west of the screen all the way where
    flow into mountain. Pour amphorae with water into the stream. Bribe
    the Cerberus 
    with all types of foods. Get in, and load up on protection
    spells..aura is
    nice here or potions and run, dont bother fighting unless you are a
    and use destroy undead spell and they go kaboom! hehe. Run to the left
    the screen, Go into door, run left of screen..again, dont bother
    unless u a paladin. 
    Exit the dragon's skeleton by  going left of screen. 
    Run right all the way until you see intersection.. two paths, one up
    one down
    Pick up now, and run all the way right. Click on the building you
    see.. make
    a choice i suggest Erana. Run all the way back to intersection and
    take the 
    other path..it's hard to see it but it's there.. run down next to
    use amphora on it.. run right.. use amphora on calm pool. Run all the
    left and out. Now run back to the exit place where you came in. But
    this time
    you exit to the beginning so just run down and up and out.. home free
    Btw, don't forget to dip ring in Whirlpool as a Paladin.
    Quest 6: Atlantis : Rite of Peace
    If you pick to save Erana or Katarina then visit them and talk to them 
    about this rite, they will give you water breathing amulet. Put it on,
    a magic spear. Then head off on balloon and go to South West of map..
    land next to atlantis and walk to the sea.. you should be swimming by
    if you haven't learnt it yet. Learn from a book next to his desk in
    the FACS 
    (the old man's place filled with books). Use spear on the big gong
    and the door opens.. some tritons will fight you. Just kick their
    Enter it and kill everything IF u wish.. then once that is done the
    will talk to you.. take the gift and go back to town, give to guards
    you finish this quest. 
    To get into the Throne room w/o killing everyone, go to the tower on
    left side and click on the panel that is above the edge of the ledge,
    it open, use picks, or use open spell on it. <- Elendel's method. 
    Quest 7: Rite of Justice
    Just walk around late at night say after midnight. Walk from the dead
    inn to your inn and you will attacked on the way (at the West Gate
    kill the bugger and there we go. Simple. He has a rather spiffy
    so take it. 
    You will be taken to minos afterwards somehow. Kill everything in
    sight. Or 
    just try and sneak past but i couldn't sneak so i kicked butt! Then
    your game.. enter the building, head to the top left door.. enter it
    kill everything again.. take the stuff from the minotaur, take the
    from Minos, pick the lock that elsa points at to get out. If she
    point, it's the top left bar door. From here you will be teleported to 
    dragon fight to end this ordeal. If u want help from Elsa during the
    the rescue her from the top right barred door, use the lockpick on the 
    table.. or just magic, you can even give her the lockpicks!
    Dragon fight at the end!
    Save your game at the start. Tell Everyone to help fix pillar.. once
    fixed the dragon can be harmed. Just wack it to death with zapped up
    or dagger.. once it starts flying unload with daggers, or frost bite.
    will land.. and just hack it to death.. use potions and lots of it!
    U can try asking people to sacrifice themselves or you talk to erana
    offer to sacrifice yourself. Anyway, game will end and you will be king.
    You DO NOT need to sacrifice yourself or anyone else.. wack it silly
    it dies.
    Btw, if u use the poison dagger as a Paladin you will lose honor. If u
    to sacrifice yourself then you obviously be flying like the dead ghost
    in the
    Parrot Inn.. so nope, no Kingdom for you!
    Here's how players are paired with. Fighter - Elsa, Thief - Nawar,
    Paladin - 
    Erana, Wizard - Katarina. But anyone can marry anyone else accept for
    with Erana cos she is a goodie goodie.. hehe. 
    To marry Nawar, just flirt with her and give her chocolates, flowers,
    ..tell her u love her and then offer her ring at near the end of the
    game i 
    think quest 6 or start of quest 7, she will ask you to do her 2
    favour, go 
    outside and wack the fat guard silly. Favour 2 is to show up Ferrari,
    means get Ann's deed. Look below for more info on Ann's deeds.
    To get Elsa you have to give her the Hydra's teeth, an amulet, and
    Then tell her you love her. Offer her ring. 
    To get Erana you have to save her first, give her seeds, flowers,
    and then tell her you love her and ask for her marry you.. just try to
    her items..and complete the mini quests like returning basket and
    giving FA 
    his water from pegasus and doing Ann's deed. You can flirt with other
    but don't show them ring.. or tell other gals you love them. If u do,
    will tell you your heart belongs to another and refuse you. So don't
    do it!
    Just look at her in that cute cute mini skirt.. heheh.
    Katarina is a bugged one. Can't marry her. There's a patch coming out.
    Btw, Nawar is the best. Just choose her, win Chief Thief & you'll see..
    Pegasus place:
    It is located on the top of the map, you can get feathers, and the
    water from here. Jump on the seesaw, throw spells or rocks on big
    rock, and
    off you go flying! Get back using magnets. Magicians use spells,
    thieves use
    your hook.. further explanation aint necessary, play it.
    Make sure you have more than 1 amphorae to fill with Hippocrene water
    Thieves Guild:
    Show Thief signs to people in dead parrot inn, some of them will tell
    where it is. It's under the bridge. Disarm trap, do not open or push or
    anything or it blows up! Enter Chief Thief competition when u have
    Join the guild. Buy pick-pocket knife if u want, i say don't bother
    with it.
    Pick pocketing don't get you a lot of money anyway. Useless skill..
    but that
    is my opinion and it's a democratic society!
    Robbing bank:
    >From the healers place, head up the stairs.. when u get halfway over,
    stealth and sneak behind the guard. Blackjack him, dispose of body.
    And then
    use lockpicks on bank. Disarm trap, take money. Woo hoo! Easy money!
    Funny things:
    Drink lots of stuff from Dead Parrot Inn, and watch what happens. Try
    drink "Dragon's Breath" from there when you can.. save first though.
    also, if u wander town after midnight, Nawar will be on her balcony,
    like Romeo and Juliet.
    Thieving places:
    You can break into the house near the arena, u need a torch. Look
    around and
    u will find goodies to loot. Feraris's place can be entered later in
    Mess around and you will get it right. Try getting on top of his house
    the house near arena. Thieves can only rob him if u give him the black
    so you replace it for a fake to win Chief Thief contest.
    Other than this, thieves dont have much to do here.
    Some Honour boosting acts: Supplied by people on QFG5 message board.
    > Give money to Cat musician (forgot name).
    > Give flowers and candy to Nawar or other women repeatedly
    > Find basket for Sarra
    > Sneak into Atlantis without killing a soul (stealth like) and tell 
      queen of paladin way.
    > Help Ann with her inn. Blackbird quest 
    > Tell Ann about wolfie after you show her picture of ballon 
    > Ring of Truth
    > Catch bank robber and ask healer to heal back arm. Then tell him 
      about doing good deeds.
    > Don't kill the General!!! 
    > Heal every one that the assian hits with a dagger.
    > Arrest the scientiest for drugging the wizards
    > If you want you could give elsa credit for killing the hydra
    Chief Thief:
    Show thief signs to Elsa, late in the game (Peace Rite) when you sleep
    inn she will enter and talk to you about stealing it. Go to minos and
    the bird, just burst right in and kill everyhing or be stealthy if u
    You can climb up wall as a thief and blackjack them, use gropel.
    Go to top left door, enter and pick lock from the top right bar door
    seems empty. Then take any other stuff you can. Exit the place, show
    to Arestes and win. 
    Arrest the Thief:
    Go to Erasmus and show him lockpicks found at bank. Then go to Dead
    Inn, then follow guy without hand (Arestes) and accuse him of being
    then call for guards. He will follow u out if u tell him how you
    busted his
    ugly butt! btw, do talk to him when you past the prison afterwards.
    Save Ann's inn:
    You can get the papers for her inn from Ferraris late in the game..
    give him 
    the peace statue from rite 6 or the fake black bird. give Ann her
    papers. The
    fake one can be found in Ferrari's Mansion.. just mess around and you
    be able to rob it.. besides, thieves are clever so i wont help here. :)
    Ring of truth:
    Go to dragon pool and dip ring in dragon's blood pool. Use ring on
    Dip ring on river in Styx River in Hades. I think that's it, but if u
    Paladin blood then you might have to be wounded.. (maybe)
    Cure poisoned people:
    Get water from Lathe river in Hades and give it to the healer. You can
    talk to them once you talk to the arrested thief and ask them to help
    btw, you can cure Rakeesh and Ugarte by giving them poison from healers.
    Give poisoned chocolate to them for hints and info.
    You can also give the lotus from oracle to healers to make cure.
    (thanks to
    Joe Black for that tip)
    Dragon Fire spell, Whirlwind, and other spells:
    Can be obtained from Katarina if u save her from Hades. Visit her on
    the small
    island east of Town. Use balloon to get there. Only if u are a Wizard.
    Whirlwind can be obtained from FA if u give him Hippocrene water.
    Augment can be found from the centaur mage in rite two.. just kill him
    for it.
    Shrink is in the box in the Hydra's cave.
    Do not use magnets when you are on the hot air balloon unless u can
    pick it
    up later.. i had to reload cos i left it in the middle of the sea
    once. hehe.
    Help Ann & Wolfie paint her inn: (also from Joe but i knew it already!)
    Talk to ann after showing her balloon drawing from wolfie, and then
    come back
    later and Inn will be different.
    Saving Kokeeno and Magnus:
    There is no way to save them.. the game wouldn't work. These are just
    You can find Kokeeno's body after freeing Naxos, alert the guards for
    Hints for Newbies:
    Buy stammina pills and go to adv guild and exercise, then take pills
    and do 
    more exercising. If you run strength will increase faster, if u walk
    will increase faster. Shadow punching and kicking will increase your
    do everyday before you sleep and before you take a meal. 
    Buy lots of magic pills and practice throwing spells around to
    increase it's 
    strength. I suggest rasing Boom, Protection, Zap to around 400 and
    frosbite to 
    more than 300, it will make the game easier later. High level boom can
    in one shot, and most of the time i can kill more than one guy at a
    Don't bother practicing swimming once u learnt it.. if u want, it's by
    pier next to the boats.. click on water to swim.
    You can learn Thermonuclear from FA if u give him water from pegasus
    but only if u are a wizard. 
    Minimum install works fine, don't bother with bigger ones..just waste
    Get a map to make locations easier. 
    To get back to erasmus, kick the portal or use trigger on it. Note: You 
    can not get back there when erasmus is sick later in game, only once.
    Becareful, stamina is needed for spell casting too! And talk to
    at least buy everything from people except weapons. You can gain
    weapons and
    stuff easy in this game during the quests.
    And finally, whatever you do.. don't get addicted to this game! 
    CHEATS!! BUGS!: not recommended to use.
    There's an item duplication cheat/bug in the game, throw something and
    it is still in the air, press "i" and then select that item and throw
    again and again.. works with coins too. But this is just plain nasty
    even you shouldn't resort to this method!
    If you use lockpicks on the door at the top of the stairs outside the 
    Dead Parrot, most of your skills, except lockpicking, will increase, 
    even though it says it's a magic lock and can't be picked. <-
    Elendel's idea
    Okay, there are a few bugs in the game.. hydra island when fighting
    elsa's help. Dragon pool late in the game, but u dont need to go there 
    unless you play paladin to dip ring in the pool. This bug appears only
    some system.. not all.
    If u have game crash bugs, get rid of EMM386.exe from your config.sys
    by putting REM in front of the line.. or you can delete movie folders
    game crashes when movie plays. If either don't work, update drivers to
    all certified directx6 drivers. Run diagnose in dx6 folder to
    check..do this
    if your sound stutters or even game runs jerky.
    More bugs are: Firing spells are Pegasus. Levitating and killing Hydra.
    And a few more i can't think of right now.. 
    Yup, that's all folks! Hope this helped you out a little bit..or a
    lot. Do 
    try to play the game before you check the walkthrough again and again.

      most of the typos and added other ways to do things! As i said, i
      this thing early in the morning half asleep so don't complain.
