- Version 1.2

28th December 98 by Ack Do not read if you don't want to know the plot and happenings of this game.

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 the Hall of Kings and talk to the lion Rakeesh and he will give you either a grapnel, 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 to play this game.. but i'm just a maniac and like to use force.

Do try other methods. SKIP to the bottom 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 to tell you to use Protection spell, use a particular weapon, or use Zap spell.

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 gain 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 village 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.. no 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 rent 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 will come out. If that dont work just blackjack everyone and kill the magician.. 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. Jack him there. Pick up stuff and return.

As a fighter just belt everything up and kill him. Paladins do the same, 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 the 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 PIZZA the Artichoke, some ANCHOVIES from Andre talk to him about small fish, and 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 at 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 Hydra 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 vice versa.. torch the heads by using firebolt or torch from thief guild.

Enter the cave, take EVERYTHING. Use magnets and go home.. give guards the hydra's 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 science island and exit up the top left.

Use the small panel to raise the gondola, 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 done. Note, magic users can gain MAGIC WOOD here, just offer the Dryads (trees) Hippocrene water from pegasus area.. all of them, so u need to fill up first.

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 place where it's serene and peaceful.

When u get there, move to the west of the screen all the way where water 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 paladin and use destroy undead spell and they go kaboom! hehe. Run to the left of the screen, Go into door, run left of screen..again, dont bother fighting 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 whirlpool, use amphora on it.. run right.. use amphora on calm pool.

Run all the way 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 baby! 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, buy a magic spear.

Then head off on balloon and go to South West of map.. there land next to atlantis and walk to the sea.. you should be swimming by now, 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 thingy, and the door opens.. some tritons will fight you.

Just kick their butts! Enter it and kill everything IF u wish.. then once that is done the queen will talk to you.. take the gift and go back to town, give to guards and you finish this quest.

To get into the Throne room w/o killing everyone, go to the tower on the left side and click on the panel that is above the edge of the ledge, force 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 parrot inn to your inn and you will attacked on the way (at the West Gate Bridge), kill the bugger and there we go. Simple. He has a rather spiffy dagger.. 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 save your game.. enter the building, head to the top left door.. enter it and kill everything again.. take the stuff from the minotaur, take the stuff from Minos, pick the lock that elsa points at to get out. If she doesn't 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 fight 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 it's fixed the dragon can be harmed. Just wack it to death with zapped up sword or dagger.. once it starts flying unload with daggers, or frost bite.

It 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 and 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 until it dies. Btw, if u use the poison dagger as a Paladin you will lose honor. If u choose to sacrifice yourself then you obviously be flying like the dead ghost in the Parrot Inn.. so nope, no Kingdom for you!

OTHER STUFF: Marriages: Here's how players are paired with. Fighter Elsa, Thief Nawar, Paladin Erana, Wizard Katrina.

But anyone can marry anyone else accept for thief with Erana cos she is a goodie goodie.. hehe.

To marry Nawar, just flirt with her and give her chocolates, flowers, jewels ..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, this 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 flowers. Then tell her you love her. Offer her ring. To get Erana you have to save her first, give her seeds, flowers, chocolate, and then tell her you love her and ask for her marry you.. just try to give 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 girls but don't show them ring.. or tell other gals you love them. If u do, she 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 special 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 here.

Thieves Guild: Show Thief signs to people in dead parrot inn, some of them will tell you 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 money. 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, use 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 to 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, kinda 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 game. Mess around and you will get it right. Try getting on top of his house from the house near arena. Thieves can only rob him if u give him the black bird 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 assasin 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 at inn she will enter and talk to you about stealing it. Go to minos and steal the bird, just burst right in and kill everyhing or be stealthy if u prefer. You can climb up wall as a thief and blackjack them, use grapnel. Go to top left door, enter and pick lock from the top right bar door that seems empty.

Then take any other stuff you can. Exit the place, show bird to Arestes and win.

Arrest the Thief: Go to Erasmus and show him lockpicks found at bank. Then go to Dead Parrot Inn, then follow guy without hand (Arestes) and accuse him of being thief 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 willbe 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 yourself. Dip ring on river in Styx River in Hades. I think that's it, but if u need 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 also talk to them once you talk to the arrested thief and ask them to help him. 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. Balloon: 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 myths. You can find Kokeeno's body after freeing Naxos, alert the guards for points.

Hints for Newbies: Buy stamina 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 Vitality will increase faster. Shadow punching and kicking will increase your stats,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 kill in one shot, and most of the time it can kill more than one guy at a time!

Don't bother practicing swimming once u learnt it.. if u want, it's by the pier next to the boats.. click on water to swim. You can learn Thermonuclear from FA if u give him water from pegasus stream, but only if u are a wizard.

Minimum install works fine, don't bother with bigger ones..just waste space. 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.

Be careful, stamina is needed for spell casting too! And talk to everyone, 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 when it is still in the air, press "i" and then select that item and throw it again and again.. works with coins too. But this is just plain nasty and 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 without 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 on some system.. not all.

If u have game crash bugs, get rid of EMM386.exe from your config.sys file by putting REM in front of the line.. or you can delete movie folders if 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 and 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.

Go to www.qfg5.com forum if u need more help or have some hints to give. This walkthrough was written by Ack. hehe. From Australia. (nickname only..I'm the mysterious one!) With help from fellow QFG5 addicts; Elendel is the main dude! He corrected most of the typos and added other ways to do things! As i said, i wrote this thing early in the morning half asleep so don't complain. Umm.. pass this guide around for people who needs it. Put it on the WEB!
