Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

| i. Introduction |

Eighteen Months have passed since the destruction of the Black Gate and the
dismantling of the Fellowship.  A recently discovered scroll reveals that the
Guardian isn't through with Britannia yet, he plans to destroy it from the
Serpent Isle.  To prevent the destruction of the land that bears his name, Lord
British sends the trusted Avatar through the Serpent Pillars to the land of
The Serpent's Isle.

Ultima 7 Part Two: The Serpents Isle (U7:SI) was built on almost the exact same
engine as The Black Gate, and therefore there are few differences in how to
play the game.  There are a few differences however.

  New in U7:SI:
    Paper Doll Inventory - you put on an armor, it will show it on you
    Vaguely Non-Linear gameplay

  Changed in U7:SI:
    More keyboard commands - very useful, they are outlined in "F. Keyboard
                             Commands" in the Appendix
    Cannot talk to people in different rooms - you could in U7, but not now
    Companions don't care if you steal
    Three new types of Money - Monetari, Filari, and Guilders
    Less companions to join party
    Less towns to explore
    More dungeons to explore
    Different Races of Avatar - you no longer have to be just white!

You're probably wondering, "What is Serpent Isle, and how does it relate to the
rest of the Ultima Series?"  Well I'm glad you asked.  Serpent Isle, or New
Sosaria was founded by dissidents who didn't like Lord British's rule, this
would have happened after Ultima 3, and before Ultima 4.  However this land has
even more history than that spanning all the way back to Ultima 1!  In Ultima 1
the land that was to become Serpent Isle was called the "Land of Danger and
Despair".  The "Land of Danger and Despair" featured a castle for Shamino, which
we visit in U7:SI; Gorlab Village, which becomes very important in the game; and
a couple of dungeons called Skullcrusher and Spinebreaker, both of which make
appearances in SI.  Know also that the names of the 3 cities comes directly from
Ultima 3, Fawn - Fawn, Moon - Moonshade, Montor - Monitor.

SI Chronology:
  Lands of Danger and Despair - Ultima 1
  Gorlab disappears, becomes a swamp
  Ophidians settle here
  Exodus steals the Great Earth Serpent starting the War of Imbalance - Ultima 3
  Balance Hierophant killed
  War of Imbalance ends with the death of the Chaos Serpent
  Ophidians die out
  Settlers arrive from Old Sosaria - between Ultima 3 and 4
  Lord Blackthorn finds his way to Monk Isle - Ultima 5
  You arrive to set things straight - Ultima 7, the Serpent Isle

Also U7:SI, unlike the Black Gate, has no discernable sub-plots or sidequests.
This means that everything in the game relates to the Main Plot in some fashion.
I really missed all the Subplots, I thought that those were what made U7 such
a well made game.  However, the main plot in U7:SI is much larger with many more

| iii. Spells |

There are Nine Circles of Magic (no more linear spells!).  You can cast your
level, i.e. a level 3 avatar can cast circle 3.  Also the circle number is how
much mana a spell will cost.

The Mages:
  Name:           Abrev         Where:
  -----           -----         ------
  Ensorcio          E           Sleeping Bull Inn
  Melino            M           Moonshade
  Torrissio         T           Moonshade
  Columna           C           Moonshade
  Gustacio*         G           Moonshade
  Mortegro**       MR           Moonshade/Tolerance
  Elissa            S           Silver Seed

  * - only after you get out of the Mountains of Freedom, offers spells for free
  ** - disappears after you get out of Mountains of Freedom, appears at
       the Temple of Tolerance

  Note: I also had some trouble getting Melino to sell me spells.  At first he
        wouldn't sell me spells, then only after I got out of Freedom would he
        sell to me.  (I don't think that's supposed to happen)  Also don't 
        mention the stalkings to him or he WILL NEVER TALK TO YOU AGAIN!

Spells: * -- indicates that you start with the spell (when you get the new spell

| vi. General Strategies |

How to Play the Game:
Serpent Isle's gameplay engine is based completely on the Ultima 7 engine, there
fore if you know how to play that game, you mostly know this one.  To walk, move
the arrow in the direction that you wish to travel, and hold down the right 
mouse button. (or double right click your destination)  To use something, or to 
open your inventory, double click the object.  To open your companions inventory 
open yours, then open theirs.  If you just double click them you will talk to
them instead.  You can also use items like food by double clicking.  To pick 
things up, left click and hold, and drag the item to where you want to put it.  
Simple!  One new thing in Serpent Isle is the expanded Hot Keys (keyboard) that
you can use (see appendix "F. Keyboard Commands), and these really make the
game easier.

First and foremost you're gonna need to survive all those battles that you will
find yourself in.

Step One in this is preparation.  Enter battles with plenty of party members,
who are well equipped.  Leather Armor is not well equipped.  Even Chain Armor is
not that good.  Try to get all Plate, and Magic when you find it.  Also don't
give everyone the same type of weapon, as this will crowd them in one area, and
they may hit each other.  Give one person a sword, another a two-handed weapon,
another a whip, then a crossbow, and maybe another throwing weapon like a Magic

Step Two, you have to recognize which battles to get into.  A level three Avatar
is not going to win against a Dragon all by himself (barring using another
strategy that we will discuss later).  In the beginning of the game, limit your
battles to simple things like Headless, Bandits and maybe a Reaper.  Then you
can move on to harder battles like Cyclops, Dragons, etc.

Ok now you are in a battle, but things aren't going well at all, your party is
disorganized, Iolo keeps shooting your own people, and Shamino just ran off
in terror.  As long as you know where everyone is, keep fighting.  Stop Shamino
right away since anyone who runs away will drop their items in an attempt to
lighten their load (maybe to run faster), and quite obviously we don't want that
to happen.  Use potions and bandages (while in the paused Inventory mode) on
anyone who needs it.  And lastly make sure that the Avatar is actually attacking
and not just standing around, since he doesn't actually finish enemies off, just
gets them to the point where they run off or collapse.

If you want to cast spells in a battle, there are 2 ways.  One is to cast the
spell directly.  The other way is to equip the Spellbook in your attacking hand
and place the marker on the spell you want to cast, then enter combat mode, and
attack.  You will then cast your spell as the attack.

Now for that strategy that I mentioned earlier.  When confronted by a superior
foe, and you know that under normal circumstances that you have no chance to
win.  Merely feed the Dragon (or whatever) a Blue Potion to put him to sleep.
Hit him, and do it again.  Simple.  Especially since Blue Potions cost only 40
guilders and can be used while in Inventory mode (unlike spells), so you won't 
ever have to get hit.  A couple other things you can do is to use a Poison 
Potion and a Blue Potion so that the enemy takes damage in his sleep.

A few other things to remember: Spells.  Remember that you do possess the magic
ability.  Some useful spells are, Poison, Curse, Protection, and Paralyze; and
of course the Major Attack spells like Mass Death.

Sorting through the Junk:
There are a great deal of items in this game, even more than in The Black Gate.
Make sure to have a good system to sort things.  What I recommend is to have
both a backpack and a bag (on your belt) on the avatar.  Hold all Plot items
in the backpack, and everything else (that you can fit) in the bag.  Since SI
introduces several new items, the keyring eliminates the need for keys, the
Everlasting Goblet eliminates the need for food, etc., you don't need to sort
through keys and food for all that long.  (you get the keyring in the Silver
Seed, and the Goblet in Furnace)  Also keep in mind that Serpent Isle has far
more "Plot Items" than did The Black Gate, so don't discard any item that sounds
even vaguely important.

The best way to get money in Serpent Isle is the spell False Coin, which 
multiplies a stack of money by 6 (so if you start with 100 you end out with 600)
and once you get this spell you don't need to worry about money again.

Other ways to get money (if you don't have a spellbook) is to exchange gems,
jewels and other valuables with the various moneychangers (Devra, Spektor, 
Zulith, and Bucia; also Topo will buy gems, see Appendix "C. Money Conversions".

Also if you ever find a dead pikeman (or kill one yourself), you can bring the
corpse to the Crematorium in Monitor and you will be paid 100 Monetari.  You do
of course, have to activate the machine and turn the body to ashes, but that
isn't too hard.

The Fine Art of Stealing:
If you are used to stealing in Ultima 7, you'll have to make adjustments in the
Serpent Isle.  You can no longer simply open a container to steal something.
Nope that's gone.  On the plus side, companions don't care if you steal or not.
So to steal anything you want, just make sure that everyone (guards and such)
are offscreen.  This will allow you to steal most everything.  There is one
notable exception, the Armory in Monitor.  If you take anything in there, no
matter if the guard is offscreen, you will get attacked by the guards.  If
you are captured, refer to the "Get out of Jail Free" section below.

Get out of Jail Free:
If you happen to have the dumb luck of getting arrested, don't worry you can get
out for completely free!  It's a good thing, because those guards probably won't
ever let you out!
  Monitor - the switch is on the right side of the room, partially concealed by
            a skeleton there, also it kinda blends into the background.
  Fawn -
  Moonshade - Open the north wall to get out.  Whee.

Magic Scrolls:
Whenever you find a Magic Scroll, try to transcribe it.  Sometimes you will find
a spell that otherwise you would have to buy, and other times that scroll is the
ONLY way to get that spell, and if you were to use that scroll, then it would be
gone forever!

Sex in Serpent Isle:
Ok, so you want a little action, but can't find any gypsies (Ultima 6) or the
Baths (Ultima 7) in which to find dependable--if a little unvirtuous--casual
sex.  Well it's even easier to get--and a little more graphic--in Serpent Isle,
in fact, you can't avoid it!
  Monitor - male - talk to Lucilla in the pub, and she will ask if you want to
                   meet up with her later, say yes, and around 3 am go to her
                   room.  Afterwords she will give you a Gwani cloak.
            female - talk to Brendann, and he will offer to sleep with you, go
                   to his house, and sleep with him.  The next day you get a
                   free Gwani cloak.  Yay.
  Moonshade - either - Frigidazzi wants you.  Badly.  No matter which sex you
                   are.  This is, of course, only after you have gotten a spell
                   book and have been introduced to her at the Banquet.  Go to
                   her house alone, and she will show you a few tricks.
              male - Columna will do anything to get her stockings back, even
                   sleep with you... but then she's a liar so don't believe her!
              female - Torrissio will do anything to get Columna's stockings 
                   back, and will even sleep with you to get them.  Don't 
                   believe him, either, since he will merely drug you and steal
                   the stockings.

Yes, you need to eat in Serpent Isle.  The game represents hunger as a number
0-31, with 31 being completely full and 0 being starving to death.  The person
won't start asking for food until the counter reaches 6.  Below is a chart
of how much an item of food will increase your "food level":

 +31: Green Cheese
  25: Everlasting Goblet
  24: Mutton, Ribs, Chicken, Ham
  16: Beef, Deer Meat
  12: Sausage
  9 : Big Cheese
  8 : Flounder, Potatoes
  6 : Jerky, Fish n' Chips
  5 : Fruitcake
  4 : Bread, Trout, Pumpkin
  3 : Cake, Banana, Egg
  2 : Apple, Small Cheese, Carrots, Rolls, Garlic
  1 : Drinks, Grapes, Leeks
  0 : Silverleaf, Bucket of Rum (or wine)

Using the "F" hotkey will feed your party member with whatever food you have on

The Spell "Create Food" will create 1 piece of food for everyone in the party
and will deposit that food on the ground by their feet.  The food that is
created is random, so it's not always something good.  Could be grapes.

| Walkthrough: |

Included in the Walkthrough is a DEATH COUNT, so you can see the Avatar's slow
and steady regression from Lord British's virtues.  Only NPC's who can talk are
considered for the Death Count, and only if they died by the Avatar's actions.
For example, you kill Lydia when she attacks you, so she is on the list.  Also
on the DEATH COUNT is anyone killed by your companions, or as a result of your
actions.  Therefore everyone who dies at the hands of the Banes counts, because
the Banes are your companions.  Sort of.

If you are arrested in any town, refer to the "vi. General Strategies" section
titled "Get out of Jail Free" to learn how to make your escape!

| 1. Arrival, "I got this hourglass used from the Time Lord." |

You arrive on a ship that is now completely on land.  Seems you had to fly to
get here.  Everyone is quite eager to be off and find Batlin, but before you
get very far you are hit by a "Teleport Storm" which teleports your 3 companions
away and exchanges all your useful equipment to junk.
Note: There is only one way to avoid the lightning, and that is to cheat (see
      the "D. Secrets and Cheats" section in the Appendix)

Walk south a ways until Thoxa appears.  She will ask you some questions to
determine if you are a dirty software pirate (oink) or whether you are a kind
and benevolent avatar, who will save the world yet again.

Ask Thoxa all the questions you want, after your conversation another Monk
appears and the two battle it out.  Thoxa wins and they all teleport away.  You
now have the Hourglass of Fate!  Very useful.  If you die, you will be
resurrected on the Monks' Isle, and you can use it to Resurrect a fallen comp-
anion.  Note: when you die the first time (if you have Silver Seed installed)
you will be given an Amulet of Balance.  Use the Amulet on a Serpent Gate to
teleport to the Silver Seed area, which is covered in the Appendix "A. Silver
Seed Walkthrough".  Go a little south and Shamino will rejoin you.

Go to the cave at 152S, 27W it has an illusionary wall entrance that is marked
by a red tree.  Go inside and get the equipment, especially the Sextant, and
the Lockpicks.

Magic Bow:
Directly to the south of the cave is a skeleton with a bow for a head.  Shamino
figures out that this was yours and was replaced by the bear skull.

Continue on to Monitor.

    Magic Bow - see above.

| 2. Monitor, "Does EVERYONE want to kill me?" |

To get into Monitor, talk to the guard at the gate.  Tell him to let you pass,
and that you are a Friend, not a Foe.  He will let you in, but wants some
Pikemen to follow you.  Ditch them and go up to the Crematorium (148S, 9W).
Go through the curtain in the SW corner, and go a little south in the crypts
until you find Lord Marsten.  Talk to him and ask to take the Knights Test, he
will tell you that the password is "Courage is the Soul of Life".  Also talk
to Brendann, and Caladin here.  They'll mention that Iolo was found and arrested
as an enchanter, but that they won't free him until you become a knight.  Dupre
will arrive now and rejoin your party.  Finally go to the prison (139S, 14E) and
talk to Iolo.

Knights Test:
To become a knight you must take the Knights Test (112S, 10W).  Talk to Shmed
the tester, tell him the password, and you alone will be taken inside, with
only a Mace and a Leather Armor.  Go up, then quickly run to the right avoiding
the explosions, then duck down into the chamber, kill the gremlins bash open the
chest and get the key.  Go back up, then right, Use the key to open the door,
and discard the key.  Go right, and up through the double doors into a room
filled with stones, and a key on a pillar.  Stack the stones to make stairs up
to the key and get the key.  Note: under every third stone or so is a snake.
The minimum amount of stones to use is about 15.  Use the key to open the door
to the south, go down there and get the next key.  Avoid the Cyclops, and the
traps if you can.  Go back up, then through the locked door to the right.  Go
up, grab the bag (it has a Cure and a Heal potion) then go south, right, the up.
There will be a room with 4 chests, ignore those, and go through the wall to the
right to get the key.  Go up and left, open the locked door here, and go south.
Get the key, flick the lever, go left, kill the rats, and get this key too.  Go
back up and unlock the other door to the left.  Go up, right, and up and then
left, grab the Claw, and go back to where the door was.  Go south now, kill the
Invisible Man and look at his incriminating scroll, then open a wall to the
west (you can tell it opens because it has a square on it that looks odd, and
when you single click it, it says "Wall" rather than "wall").  Go through and
open another wall to the south.  Go left and up.  Use the claw on yourself,
then use it on the ashes.  A wolf will appear, kill it and get the body.  Take
the key out of his body.  Go through the last locked door and go south to the
end.  Shmed will attack you, kill him and take his stuff.  Also note that Shmed
didn't act alone, and said something about a woman in on it.  Hmmmm...  Go back
to Shmed's house and get all your belongings and companions back.

Becoming a Knight, steps 2 through 4:
Go back to Monitor, and give the Wolf to Cellia (139S, 1W) to make you a cloak,
she says it will take her 24 hours to complete, so note the time.  Then take the
Wolf Meat to Lucilla (152S, 13E) and have her make the banquet meal.  Finally go
to Lydia the Tattoo artist (147S, 13E), and get your Wolf Command tattoo.  After
24 hours get your cloak and go to the Banquet Hall to become a Knight
(157S, 12E).
Note: one thing to do while you wait for your cloak is to do the Silver Seed,
      but if you want to do that, be sure to NOT get a tattoo from Lydia (or if
      you do, to get the cure first)

You will now be having a banquet in your honor.  During the banquet, Flicken
(the gate guard) will ask you what you thought was the worst ordeal of all.
Tell them whatever, but this will make them think that there is a traitor.
Then Harnna will enter telling you that her daughter Cantra was taken, which
brings up other old wounds, causing Luther to accuse Krayg of being a traitor,
they attack each other, and the banquet ends.

Talk to Harnna about Cantra, then look in her Crystal Ball (157S, 9W) to
discover that Batlin took Cantra.  Harnna will give you a Wooden Practice
Sword and tell you to find the Hounds of Doskar to track Cantra down.

Talk to Lord Marsten to free Iolo (139S, 14E) from prison.
Note: You can have Spektor free Iolo, but he wants money to do it, and Marsten
      will do it for free!

At some point in Monitor, after you become a knight, you will notice that you
are poisoned.  Talk to Harnna, and she will temporarily cure you but needs Varo
Leaves for a more permanent measure.  Delphynia of Fawn has the Varo Leaves.
Note: If you are cheating and using "Power Avatar" you won't get poisoned, and
      therefore you don't need Varo leaves, and Lydia never dies.  So don't
      cheat!  It ruins the game!  (As you may have guessed, I was cheating to
      learn about this...)

The Third Traitor:
Talk to Simon and try his Ale, it is really really bad.  Then talk to Krayg
about being called a traitor and he'll say that he saw someone sneaking around,
and he also mentions a Goblin meeting site (83S, 18W).  Go there and find the
Ale, take it back to Simon, who reveals himself to be the Goblin Traitor and 
attacks you.  Search his body to find the key to the Goblin Passages.

ITEMS: (these are items that were lost in the teleport storm)
  Iolo's Crossbow - in the Crypts
  Dupre's Shield - Talk to Harnna about the Plain Shield, and then talk to
        Lucilla to learn that Luther has a "New Shield".  Pester Luther about it
        until he challenges you to a duel.  Accept it, and beat him in a
        training session after you become a knight.  Use the Halberd to beat him
        since it has a long range.  Then afterwords ask for Dupre's Shield back
        and then give him his shield.

DEATH COUNT: 3 (Shmed, Lydia, Simon)

From Monitor you can go several places:  Fawn, Goblin Passages, Inn of Sleeping
   Bull, and eventually Moonshade.  I choose to go to Fawn next, then the Inn,
   followed by Moonshade, and finally the Goblin Passages.  But you can do these
   in almost any order you want.  The reason I do it in this order, is that it
   makes the Goblin areas much much easier.  (in that you will have MAGIC and
   HIGHER LEVELS when you go there!)

| 3. Fawn, "Yes... Everyone wants to kill you!" |

Fawn Tower: (95S, 8E)
On the way to Fawn is the Fawn Tower, which was taken by the Goblins.  Kill
all the Goblins here, go down the stairs, come back up, and the Pikemen will
have retaken the tower.  Yay.

When you arrive at Fawn you will be accosted by a guard, and then a member of
the Fellowship, Ruggs, who asks you to deliver a letter to Delphynia.  (this is
SORT OF a subplot in that it doesn't matter if you do it or not!)

Once in town you will find yourself in the middle of another teleport storm.

This time a lute appears at Iolo's feet so he plays a song that gets everyone's
Note: Iolo already had a lute, so this one makes 2.

Then go to Delphynia (69S, 18E), deliver the letter and get the Varo leaves.
(you have to go back to Monitor to get cured in that Harnna is the only one who
can use the Varo Leaves to heal you)  Delphynia may also give you a letter to 
give back to Ruggs.  Go out to the Fellowship Camp (76S, 22E) and deliver the 
letter, then get your map from Scots.  Talk to everyone else.

Go back to Fawn, and talk to everyone about everything.  Get your gauntlets back
from Alyssand (see ITEMS below) and agree to help her free the town from evil
schemes.  After that, Zulith will begin following you.  Talk to him and accuse
him of spying on you (if you hadn't talked to him before, talk to him, then
talk to him again).

Eventually Kalen will attack you, kill him and he spouts some gibberish about
Batlin triumphing over all.  After that Jendon will come up to you and tell you
that Lady Yelinda wants to meet with you and Iolo (the other companions are
optional).  Go to her palace, and talk to her.  Iolo (or another companion if 
you brought any) will say something about Lord British and get thrown in jail.

Trial of the Century:
You wake up in the Inn, minus whatever companion said the stupid remark.  There
is a key and a note that reads "Thou are required at the temple for the trial",
so go to the Temple (56S, 9E).  The trial isn't exactly fair, as Voldin twists
every fact against you.  Eventually the trial finishes for the day.  Go talk
to Alyssand, and she will give you a key to the temple.  Go to the temple and
use your key to open the left door.  It leads to a cell where your companion
is held.  Flip the switch and continue north.  You will find yourself in a room
full of levers, and Voldin.  He has been secretly controlling the Oracle via
the levers, and attacks you to preserve his secret.  Kill him.  Then just flip
levers until the Oracle talks, then talk to the Oracle and change the Revelation
to say that the Trial is Corrupt.  Wait 24 hours (or so) and go back to the
Trial.  Now its your turn to call witnesses, but don't bother.  The verdict will
be innocent, and the Oracle will denounce the whole system.  Yelinda will
apologize and give your companion the Crystal Rose of Love.  Then Jendon will
appear and say that Kylista has been arrested.  And Justice for All.
Note: If you choose to set the Oracle to say merely that your companion is
      innocent, and not denounce the whole system, then there is only one 
      difference:  Kylista will not be jailed.

   Torches - Delin got your torches and you got his money.  After telling him 
       about his daughter's ring (see below) he offers you money, but realizes 
       that all he has now is food.  Take your torches if you want.
   Magic Gauntlets - Alyssand's engagement ring was swapped for your gauntlets.
       Talk to Delin to learn that the Ring was hers, then talk to Alyssand
       about it and she'll give you the gauntlets, and let you keep the Ring.
   Magic Armor - Kylista's White Breastplate was swapped for your nice Magic
       Armor.  Don't tell her that, however, or she'll want it back (it has the
       same defense as a Plate Mail), instead go to her house (54S, 6E) and
       while no one is looking, take it.

DEATH COUNT: 2 (Kalen, Voldin)
JAILED: 1 (Kylista)

| 4. Sleeping Bull, "Wouldn't you rather get 99999 Monetari than 1 gold bar?" |

Before you enter the Inn:
Let's search for treasure first!  Go to (117S, 36E), and check inside the hollow
tree for a pair of bags, and a key.  The bags have 3 potions and some money.
Next go to the pillar at (100S, 39E).  You are going to have to stack crates to
get up to the invisible chest on top of it.  Remember that key we got in the
tree?  It opens this invisible chest!  Inside are a Magic Sword, 2 potions of
Healing, a Ring of Invisibility, Invisibility Dust, Magic Bolts, money, and a
Kite Shield.

Now go into the Inn.  Talking with Kane and Flindo will reveal that Captain
Hawk is unable to take anyone to Moonshade because Flindo had him arrested.
Also talk to the Monk Miggim, and anyone else you want to.  Hawk is currently
being held in the Pikemen tower to the north of the Inn (99S, 28E).  Talk to
any Pikeman there and offer to pay for Hawk's freedom.  No matter how much
money you offer (even into the millions!) he will reject you.  We'll get back
to this in a moment, but first we have other things to do.

Silverpate's Treasure, Part 1:
Go into the Inn's basement, and between 2 casks on the north wall is a Wall,
open it and go north.  There will be a little room here.  Get the key in the
left chest, but ignore the right chest.  Also flip the switch.  Now go back out
then south and left down the stairs.  Then go up, and when you come to a fork
in the path, take the left path until you reach a locked door.  Open the door
with your trusty key (from the earlier room), go inside, and go to the left side
of the chamber.  In the 2nd from bottom chest you will find another key and a
map.  (the other chests merely explode when touched)  In the north side of the
chamber is another invisible chest.  Inside are a couple spells, some money,
and a potion.  Now go back to the fork in the path, and this time go right.
Then go up a little ways until you see 2 torches close together, from there
go through the right wall (its an illusion), and then go up, kill the gazers.
Pick open the chest here (you should be by a big serpent's gate) to get a key
and the Dark Path Map.  Use the key on the door to the right, and step on the
teleporter to get back to the Inn.
Note: The Dark Path Map isn't all that useful of an item, what it does is show
      the path to the Shrine of Logic.

Selina's Crazy Adventures:
Now we'll buy Hawk's freedom!  Talk to the Pikemen (if you haven't already) and
they'll just want more money than you have.  Go back to the inn, and Selina
should approach you (btw, she is Lydia's, the tatto artist, sister) and offer
to help you get some money to pay the fine.  Take her up on the offer, but don't
leave your companions behind (unless you really like fighting battles on your
own) and go to the Mint at (76S, 81E) (Ignore the other building on the way to
the mint).  Unlock the mint with Selina's key, go inside and take all the
treasure.  You will be teleported around, and attacked by monsters that change
forms.  Once you have all the gold bars, gold nuggets, and gold coins, leave
the mint and head back to the Inn.  But whats this?  An ambush?  Selina vanishes
and you get attacked by a number of brigands sent by Batlin.  One of them has
a Sword of Defense.  Get Selina's stuff and go back to the Pikemen tower.  Take
all but 1 gold bar and set it on the ground, talk to the Pikeman and offer him
a Gold Bar for Hawk's freedom.  He will give you a key to open Hawks cell.  Free
Note: If you don't set all your other gold bars on the ground, the Pikemen will
      take all the gold bars in your possession, but if you only have one then
      that is all they can take!

Whenever you want to go to Moonshade, talk to Hawk and have him take you there,
but beware, for you won't be able to come back from Moonshade for a long long
time!  So train everyone back in Monitor, and get all the items that you may
need, for ye won't be coming back for a bit!
Note: Since both Flindo and Kane need to go to Moonshade, the ship will not
      leave without them, meaning that if they are asleep or otherwise
      indisposed then you won't be going anywhere fast!  And once you are on
      the ship, you cannot move at all.  So don't try this until it is mid-day
      or so, AND you know that Flindo and Kane are ready to board.

ITEMS: Swamp Boots - Shamino's new slippers are actually Devra's, talk to her
           and exchange them for your swamp boots.

| 5. Moonshade, "Rotoluncia's Miracle Diet!" |

You will land at (122S, 114E) and Moonshade is at (95S, 152E).  First talk to
Flindo and he will try to set you up with a meeting with the MageLord.  Then go
to the Seminarium (93S, 149E) and talk to Fedabiblio about a new Spell book, he
will tell you to get a fresh Mandrake Root from Monk Isle.  Soon an Automaton
will talk to you bearing greetings from its mistress, the Red Witch Rotoluncia.
He gives you a Magic Scroll (it looks just like a spell scroll), talk to it,
and Rotoluncia will talk to you.  What she wants isn't so much, she wants to
control Daemons and thinks that you know how to do that.  Since you don't you
can't very well teach her anything.  Talk to everyone else in the town.  If it's
after midnight, go talk to Mortegro and do a seance.   And keep bugging Flindo
to get you that meeting with the MageLord.  Eventually he will tell you that
he has had success and that Filbercio wants to meet with you!  Wow!  Walk around
for a short bit, go near the MageLord manner and you will be teleported to the

You will get to meet Rotoluncia again, Gustacio, and Frigidazzi, as well as the
MageLord himself.  Rotoluncia blames you for the Teleport Storms and attacks you
with Explosions, but Gustacio stops her.  Rotoluncia leaves in a huff, and
Pothos the apothecary enters saying that he could not get Blood Moss.  That
ends the banquet.  After the banquet talk to Bucia about Pothos.

Go talk to Pothos about his "secret" (79S, 138E), and he asks you to get some
Blood Moss for him.  It is in the center of the swamp at the southern end of
the island.  The entrance to the swamp is (127S, 153E) and the Blood Moss is at
(123S, 147E).  Grab some blood moss and take it back to Pothos.  He will then
give you information on how to get to and talk to Erstam the Mad Mage.

However, when you get going to talk to Erstam, one of your companions will
vanish.  Talk to Filbercio about it and he thinks Rotoluncia may have done the
deed.  Search her manor (74S, 155E) and an Automaton will talk to you.  Question
him and he will attack you.  Take the serpent's tooth here, as well as the
spells.  Go back to Filbercio and inform him that you found nothing.  He will
then tell you of the "Love Palace" on the lake.  Go upstairs in his mansion
and from there onto his boat.  Take the boat to the Palace. (88S, 130E)  And go
inside.  First go upstairs and get the key (note the whip...hehe), then go down
into the basement.  Kill the red witch, search her for keys, and free your

Comb of Beauty:
This need not be done now.  (but it needs to be done eventually)  In Columna's 
house is a chest, inside is a key.  Use that key to open the door in her house 
and go downstairs.  Quickly grab the key down there and the spell Time Stop, 
before the trap activates.  Then, back upstairs, open up her north wall, and go 
outside, walk around to the south of her yard.  There is a chest.  Open it with 
your key and take the comb.

   Map - your map of Britannia was swapped for the Ice Wine.  However, since
         this is Serpent Isle and not Britannia, the Map no longer exists.
   Stockings - the stockings that you got belonged to Columna, talk to Torissio
         about them (and if you are female he offers to sleep with you to get
         them back, if you are male he will give you a spell), and Columna.  If
         you tell Melino about them he will refuse to talk to you, and therefore
         won't sell you spells.  Your Blackrock serpent, the item that was
         exchanged, is in the property of Stefano who had stolen the stockings.
   Helm - Frigidazzi got your Magic Helm and you got her fur cap.  It is located
         in her bedroom and can be picked up whenever you get access into that

DEATH COUNT: 1 (Rotoluncia)

| 6. The Mad Mage, "Yesssss, Master!" |

At (14S, 128E) Ring the Bell to summon the giant sea turtle to take you to
Erstam's private island resort.  Go inside his house and talk to him.  He says
a whole lotta stuff.  Then go talk to his assistant, Vasel, and ask him about
Teleportation.  And lastly talk to the head of Boydon on the table.  If you
look in his telescope you can see where the Magebane ended out.

Talk to Erstam again and ask him about the Jawbone, and he will ask you to fetch
a Phoenix Egg for him in exchange for the Jawbone.  He will then teleport you
to the island.  Wander around until you find a fire chamber with a dead phoenix
then flip the switch and the phoenix will come back to life and give you the
required egg.  Then find the teleport pad and step on it to return to Erstam's

Talk to Erstam and he will tell you to assemble the pieces of Boydon (they are
the body parts that don't move, get a head, torso, 2 arms, and 2 legs) put them
in his machine, and lastly put in the phoenix egg.  Erstam will give you the
key to his storeroom.  Go there and get the Jawbone.  Go back to Erstam who will
give you 2 more teeth.  Finally talk to Boydon who will ask to join, ask Erstam
if it is ok, then ask Boydon to join.  Beware, that if Boydon dies, he cannot
be resurrected!
Note: Be sure to put all your teeth onto the Serpent Jawbone, as you get them,
      don't wait because those teeth can be hard to find.

Go back to the storeroom, and double click the Serpent Gate.

    Dagger - Erstam has your dagger, you have his severed hand

| 7. Monk Isle, "The Bells!" |

Go through the serpent path to get to Monk Isle.  (the Monk Isle Gate, is to the
right and it is the first one up)  We are here to gather Mandrake Roots so that
we can get our spellbook.  Talk to the Mandrake Expert, Monk Braccus about
Mandrake Roots and he will tell you if the time is right to gather the Roots.
When he says that it is go to (10N, 151E) and gather at least 3 Roots.

Note: Whenever you hear bells ring, that means that the monks are going to
      a different activity.

Also be sure to go to (7N, 139E) and see the prophecy in action.  You will see
Petra walking through some acid.

Talk to anyone else you want.

| 8. Moonshade Spells and Such, "Est Nudi!" |

Take the Serpent Path again, this time go left, and down the first one to get
back to Moonshade.  Now that we have the Mandrake Roots we can get our spellbook
by talking to Fedabiblio.  He will then ask you some questions (refer to the
"1. Arrival" section for the answers) and give you a spellbook.  Cast Transcribe
on all your Magic Scrolls that you have accumulated, and then search all the
Mages houses for more scrolls.  Get False Coin, cast it on Monetari, and
exchange the Monetari for Guilders.  Then buy every spell in town.

Once you are completely done with Moonshade, you have every spell, everyone
is well equipped, etc.  Talk to Frigidazzi and ask about her spells, she will
tell you to come to her room after midnight, alone.

Ditch your companions and go into her room (77S, 150E) at midnight.  She will
come on to you (whether you are male or female, it doesn't matter), and no
matter whether you do the deed or not, you will get caught by her lover, the
Magelord Filbercio.

Filbercio puts you through another "show" trial and you are sentenced to
imprisonment in the Mountains of Freedom for the heinous crime of having sex
with the Magelord's mistress.  There is apparantly no such notion of Justice in
all of Serpent's Isle.

| 9. Mountains of Freedom |

Most of your items will be left back at the courthouse.  What you will have:
  Scale Armor
  Hourglass of Fate
  Ring of Reagants*

  * if you got these items in Silver Seed

Answer the automaton's questions and when he comes out of his little office,
sneak in.  He will attack you.  Use your staff's long distance to beat him.
Take all the items in the office.  Use the key to open the north gate, kill
the 2 goons here, and go through the north wall.  Go left, and down.  When you
see the red footprints going into a wall, go south into the wall.  From there
go left.  The locked room with all the barrels has some reagants, and Blood
Spawn.  Go down.  Pick open the gate, and step onto the teleporter.  Go down
the passage until you get to a room with a mage in it.  The mage turns into an
animal, and teleports away.  There are reagants here.  Step onto the teleporter.

You are now at Stefano's.  Stefano will talk to you right off, and offer to join
you.  Accept, and he will tell you how to get out of Freedom.  All he needed was
your might.  Go down the passage, and open the gate.  Kill anyone there, and get
the key in the bag on the table.  In the next passage, you will be attacked by
a Knight with your Black Sword!  The demon will ask you to free him, don't do
it just yet.  Talk to the sword after, and he will offer a trade of sorts.  You
free him, and he will destroy the Wizard Lorthondo, now agree to free him.  The
Black Sword is now, just a sword.  Open the next gate, go up, kill the woman,
and step on the teleporter.
Note: after you free the Demon from the Sword you may be tempted to toss that
      sword away, well... don't!  You need it later!

Open the left door, and you will be automatically taken into the room, where
Lorthondo kills one of his underlings.  The dead underling turns into a skeletal
dragon which attacks you.  Go down into the small room, get the key and the
Firedoom Staff.  Go now through the door to the right.  Every chest in the room
is booby trapped, but there are some nice things here like Magic Gauntlets and
Magic Boots.  Flip the 2 switches here, and step on the teleporter to the right.

Go up the passage, and get the Telekinesis scroll, then go through the right
passage.  Use Telekinesis on the Winch to let down the drawbridge, and go across
to the other side.  Go right, and then up through the gate.

You will now be in a room with levers on the floor.  First flip the top right
(not the very top right, but the one on the row of 4 levers), then the bottom,
second from right.  Go up to the woman, and lead her to the dark horse.  The
horse (nightmare) will kill her.  Take the carrots and the key from her corpse.
Now flip the top left (again on the row of 4), put the carrots on the plate by
the rabbit and get the flowers.  Flip the lower left lever, and put the flowers

by the Ranger.  The ranger will "fix" the lower right lever, and be destroyed.
Flip the lower right lever.  Step onto the teleport pad, and then flip the blue
switch.  Try to walk out of the glad to teleport back.  Finally flip the very
lower left lever (not on the row of 4) to open the south doors.  Go south.  Use
your key to open the door, and step into the fire.

You will now have reached the "Endless Hallway".  Walk to the south, and keep
trying to go through the right wall.  Eventually you will succeed and be tele-
ported.  There will be an Automaton in a room here.  Go south till you see the
room with the bell.  Stack the crates to form a ladder so that you can ring the
bell.  Climb on the crates and you will be teleported.  Go left and then onto
the teleporter.  The room up from here has some items.  Continue left.  Talk
to the automaton, and kill him to get his key.  Pick the final gate, and go down
you will be attacked by Lorthondo, but your demon will blow him to bits.  Pick
the last gate, and step onto the teleporter, and you are out!

Stefano leaves you, but leaves all your belongings with you.

     Black Sword - a knight in freedom has it.

| 10. Moonshade and a Mirror |

First thing to do upon your escape of Freedom is to round up your companions:
  Dupre - Blue Boar Pub
  Shamino - West forest (81S, 110E)
  Iolo - Gustacio's house
  Boydon - provisioner's house

When you get Shamino he gives you the "Chill" spell from Frigidazzi, and the
Serpent Earrings.  After you get Shamino back, you'll hear the voice of the
Order Serpent (because you now have the Earrings).  When you get Iolo back, he
tells you to talk to Gustacio.  Gustacio wants your help in investigating the
Teleport Storms, he gives you an energy globe and tells you to go to his little
tower (37S, 142E).  It also seems that Mortegro has vanished and been replaced
by a strange stone altar.  (it is the altar of Tolerance, and becomes important
later in the game)

Go to the tower, place the globe on the dais, and then use the Winch.  A
teleport storm will be summoned.  Now use each lever by the various objects.
Once your finished with each lever, use the winch again, but now you will be
hit by lightning.  You'll come to by a pit (if you fall down, get the key and
the treasures) and go north to get your companions.  Report your findings to
Gustacio, who tells you to get the data interpreted by Fedabiblio.  He will have
you look into his Crystal Ball, where you will see Edrin turned into Ale by a
Teleport Storm, talk to Fedabiblio, then go back to Gustacio.  He will give you
a cage, use it, and trap Ale.  Then go back to the tower, place the cage on an
open spot, and do it again.  Edrin will be restored to humanity.  Yay.

Go back to Gustacio and he will give you the Mirror of Truth, and sell you his
spells for FREE!

Also, if Melino didn't sell you spells earlier, he will now.
Note: I asked him for spells, but didn't have the money so I had to decline, but
      when I got the money, he stopped offering the spells.

Leaving Moonshade:
Talk to Captain Hawk about leaving the island, and he will tell you that there
is a tunnel that leads right back to the Mainland.  He also says that Julia, the
head ranger, has the key.  Julia will sell you the key (so long as you have the
Chill spell) for 40 guilders.  If you don't want to fight the Rat Men, talk to
Mosh, befriend her, and get her Rat Harp.

| 11. Furnace, "101 ways to fry an Avatar" |
Note: Sulfurous Ash can be gathered in large quantities here.

Whenever anyone complains about the heat, cast the Chill spell.  This will only
last for a few minutes (real time not game time).

The entrance to Furnace is located at (96S, 133E).  Use Julia's key to open the
door and go on down.  You are now in the first level of Furnace, which we will
refer to as the Ratmen Lair.  Head all the way to the left, go down a short way
and take the path to the right, going through the Ratmen village.  Continue all
the way to the right (you can go down to the Crypt here if you want), up past
the Wildmen, and finally head left and up the stairs.

You are now in Furnace proper.  Talk to the Gargoyle (Zhelkas) to get him to
lower the bridge for you.  He will have you take the Test of Purity to prove
that you are the Hero, and then he will give you an "important artifact".

Go to the large room with all the Pools (I'm sure that you can find it), and on
one of the corpses is the Fire Key.  Take it, and notice how it won't be added
to the Keyring.  Hmmm...

The building to the right of the Pool Room is a large arena, go around the south
side of it, kill the skeletons, and enter from the right side.  Use the winch
go in, and as the gates open, defeat the Automatons.  When you have beaten all
4, the far right room will open.  Get the key in there.  Cast Telekinesis on the
Winch to get back out.

Go right, through the locked door, and continue right and down into the Mushroom
Park.  Search the bodies to come up with another Serpent's Tooth, and the Ice
Key.  (the tooth is for Monitor)

Go back up to the magically locked door, open it and go up.  Find the two
columns, and double click the right Fire column to enter the Test of Purity.

Test of Purity:
To open the doors, even though they are locked, merely double click them.
Left - Shamino here wants you to press the Left Button (it makes the people in
       there want to have sex with you), ignore his advice and press the right
Top -  Iolo here is full of lies, so don't pay attention to what he says, refuse
       to flee with him and above all do not go into the Moongate.  Instead just
       stand there.
Right - Dupre is here and is a "moderator of the game", whatever that means.  He
       wants you to take a hammer and whack worms as they pop up.  Do so.  It is
       easiest to hit them from above them.  They are about 3 hits apiece.  
       Ignore Dupre's attempts to distract you, and keep killing the worms.

Zhelkas will appear, and depending on whether you passed the test, will give you
the Serpent Ring.
Note: If you fail the test, find the Everlasting Goblet from the Conjury (the
      building is north of the Pool room) and talk to Zhelkas again.

There are 2 buildings north of the Test, go in the right one, and place the
Fire Key and the Ice Key on the pedestal to get the Blackrock Key (which can be
put on the keyring).  This key opens the north door on the second floor, which
leads to a Serpent Gate.  (you may also find your Spellbook here, but it will
be useless, and therefore won't be covered in the ITEMS section)

Also be sure to pick up the Everlasting Goblet, it is located in the "Conjury"
which is to the left of the Test (although you will have to go all the way
around again to get it).  With that in your possession, you never need any
more food.  Also in the Conjury is Eshalveras' lab.
Note: To create Phosphor--to light the Serpent Lamps--place 1 Agnium, 1 Zerine,
      and 1 Serpentium on the pedestal here, and press the button.  This creates
      a piece of Phosphor.  Use the phosphor on a lamp to light it.

When you want to continue on to Monitor, talk to Zhelkas again, who will pull
the lever to get you out (it is by where you came in).  Follow the hallway south
go across the bridge, then go left, and up into the Troll sleeping area.  One
of the Trolls will have a key on him.  Open the locked door and get the Serpent

Finally to get out go down, left, across the bridge, left, and then up.

| 12. Goblins! "The brand new multi-million dollar Musical!" |

And now finally back to the plot we started back in Monitor, the Goblins.  First
check the hollow tree at (86S, 23W) and get the Serpent Crown.

Go to (69S, 32W) and into the Goblin tunnels.  Once inside, go left, then up,
kill the goblins here, and open the door with one of Simon's keys.  Go north,
down the stairs, and north again.  Keep going north until you get to the very
top.  There will be 2 staircases here, take the one on the left.  There is an
underground lake here, with a sign that says "Beware of Water Creatures" good
advice.  Go up the NW stairs.  From here go left, up, and up these stairs.
Continue going up, left, then up the next stairs.  Go left, up, left, and all
the way up.  You will see a locked door on the right, the Helm of Courage is in
there, but we need to get the key from Pomdirgun in the Goblin village.  Exit
the passages.

The Goblin Village:
The best time to attack the goblins is obviously when they are all asleep, which
they do from 12 am to 6 am.  Attack between those times, and kill the goblins in
their sleep.  Pomdirgun's house is at (30S, 20W) go in and he'll want to talk to
you first, do so if you want, then kill him and take your key.  He also has a
trapped chest, which has some gems, and he has a Magic Axe.  There is a human
slaughterhouse at (19S, 23W) and a female pikeman inside has a Sword of Defense.
Finally there is an imprisoned Pikeman, Johnson, at (19S, 17W), you can free
him if you like.
Note: Beware of Johnson!  He will follow you around, but he isn't part of your
      party, so if you steal some Goblin loot, he will act like a normal guard
      and attack you for stealing!  The jerk.

Go back into the passages, open the door and take the Helm of Courage!  Also
read the two letters on the table and take them.  They implicate Lord Marsten
and Spektor of heinous deeds.  Also there is a lot of gems, jewelry and money
here.  Go back to Monitor.

The Traitors:
Read the 2 scrolls from Pomdirgun's treasure horde, and then talk to either
Brendann or Caladin and tell them who the real traitor is.  Lord Marsten and
Spektor will both be arrested and thrown into jail (where Iolo was held).
Talk now to Lucilla about Spektor and she will give you the key to their secret
treasure trove.  Now go to (154S, 12W), and walk west into the mountain, use
the key on the door and go in.  Find the corpse, read and take the note (seems
you found Cantra's father) and take a powder keg. (if you can't hold it, don't
worry, but you'll a powder keg later in the game, and this is a good source for

DEATH COUNT: 1 (Pomdirgun)
JAILED: 2 (Marsten, Spektor)

| 13. The Realm of Dreams |

Make sure that you have the Helm of Courage, the Crystal Rose of Love, and the
Mirror of Truth before proceeding!  Also get everyone warm clothing (fur hat,
fur cloak, and fur boots) for their inventory, you will need these soon!

Go to the building at (62S, 46E) go inside through the switch on the right wall.
There are some gems in the barrel here.  Go across the left bridge.  When you
get off the bridge there will be a key underneath it (barely visible), get it.
--------what does this key open??--------

There are also some ruins at (46S, 36E).

Go into the Gorlab Swamp, and you will one by one fall asleep... and reawaken
in the realm of Dreams.  All your items are gone except for a backpack and the
3 items of principle.

You appear right above a Temple (well... a dream temple anyway) go inside, and
by a little version of a moongate, Thoxa will appear and tell you to find the
Moon's Eye.  From there, leave the temple, and go north quite a ways to get to
the dream version of Castle Britannia.  A chest behind the throne has a full
set of Magic Armor and an Infinity Bow.  Talk to Lord British to learn that
Britannia is falling apart just as much, if not more so, than Serpent's Isle.
Note: If you attack, and beat, Lord British, he won't die, but rather will wail
      about how the Avatar has gone mad and that the world is truly doomed.

Go back south until you find a giant flame in a nature area.  To leave the dream
area at any time step into the flame.  Don't do that now, however.  Go north
along the left path, and then all the way north.  Then go left, down, left, and
finally up.  You should be in a forested area.  Talk here to Siranush.  Seems
that a long long time ago, an evil wizard destroyed the town of Gorlab, but that
he trapped them in the Realm of Dreams.  So you have to help free them!  To do
that we need to kill the wizard, and bring her the Crystal.

Go back to that giant flame.  From there go all the way south, and left until
you reach a giant castle.  You can't miss it!

Go into the keep, and walk up to the Wizard.  He will attempt a spell on you,
but won't succeed because you are protected by Courage!  The Snow Leopards will
come to life, kill them, and go south, east, and into a torture chamber.  Again
talk to the Wizard, who will again attempt a spell, but you are protected by
Love!  The body on the table has a key, and a corpse in the west room has a
Fire Sword.  Go back to the main chamber, and open the north door with the key.
Go in the room, talk to him, he attempts one last spell and it reflects back
to him because you are protected by Truth!  Search his body for a key.  Go into
the right room, and open the east door with the key.  Go down and get the
Crystal, avoiding the traps.

Go back to Siranush, and give her the Crystal.  Edrin will pop in for a moment,
they will exchange their last bit of love, and you leave the Dream Realm.  You
can now go through Gorlab Swamp.

Also in the Dream Realm:
   Batlin - who dreams of defeating you, the avatar
   Cantra - who has horrible nightmares of being chased
   Stefano - dreams of women (naked women!)
   Iolo - dreams of looking for Gwenno
   Ensorcio - dreams of torturing the Magelord

   Filbercio - nightmares of being tortured by Ensorcio
   Byrin - the bard from Sleeping Bull, will offer some tips on the Dream Realm

DEATH COUNT: 2 (Siranush, Rabindrinath)

| 14. Great Northern Forest |

There are some ruins right outside of Gorlab (29S, 60E).  Inside is a corpse
with a Ring of Regeneration and some jewelry.  Wow.  You probably also notice
the big castle (22S, 77E), but that is for later!

At (0S, 66E) you will find a small fort.  You have stumbled across the remnants
of a mining expedition led by Draygon (that's _Lord_ Draygon to you!).  If you
listen to everything Draygon has to say, he comes off as a fairly mean person.
Talk to Beryl after Draygon has gone to sleep, and she tells you of all of
Draygon's evil deeds, that he led to the death of some 21 people.  She wants you
to kill Draygon, not an easy task since he is invicible.  She tells you to find
some Kings Savior, an herb, and to find it, you must talk to the Forest Master.

Go now to the Forest Master (52S, 21W), and talk to him.  His name is Morghrim,
and he is from the next game, er, I mean Pagan.  Ask him about the King's
Savior.  He also tells of the fall of Pagan to the Guardian.  Eventually he will
mention the Hound of Doskar (remember those?  the dogs we need to find Cantra!)
Agree to get his Orb back for him, and he will get a Hound of Doskar for you.
The King's Savior is just to the west and a little to the north of here.  Gather
some and go back to the Fort.  Talk to Beryl again, and then use the Savior on
some arrows (she has some in her room), the sleep arrows will appear at your
feet.  Attack Draygon with a bow and the sleep arrows, then beat him normally.
Get the Orb and he also has some Magic Leggings.  Morghrim will appear, and ask
for the Orb, give it to him, and he will give you a Whistle to summon a hound
of Doskar with!

At (17S, 28E) you will find Hazzard's lodge.  Inside you will find a note that
says that he has your glass sword on him, and has headed north.  There is also
a key here.

At (44S, 22W) is a cave hidden by a tree.  Inside is a small amount of treasure,
note that the brass chest is trapped.

DEATH COUNT: 1 (Draygon)

| 15. Shamino's Castle |

Place Cantra's practice sword on the ground, and summon a Hound of Doskar, tell
the dog to "Track" and click on the sword.  Pick the sword back up.  The dog
will tell you to go north.  Go to (3N, 99E) which is Shamino's castle.  Shamino
will draw you a map of the area and talk a bit about a lost love.
Note: In case you're wondering how Shamino could have a castle here, when his
      home was in Britannia, here is the explanation.  Back in Ultima 1 there
      were many lands that comprised Old Sosaria, and one of them was called
      the Lands of Danger and Despair, this is where Shamino lived and had his 
      castle.  However he went to serve Lord British, and Sosaria was split to 
      pieces leaving Shamino stranded, and his love left alone in what was now 
      the Serpent's Isle.

The secret entrance to the castle is at (2N, 78E).  You can either go in that
way, or use Telekinesis on the winches (you can barely see the second winch). In
the secret entrance is a Cyclops who has a Magic Helm, a Magic Shield and some
Magic Bolts.

Once in Shamino's Castle, go to the Central Keep first, go inside, kill all of
Batlin's loser followers.  Batlin will pop in and say some snide remark about
how you are too late, and that soon he will be more powerful than even the
Guardian.  He teleports outta there and takes Palos with him.  Go upstairs, take
the Fellowship Medallion.  A monk will appear and take Cantra's dead body away.

Now for the rest of the keep.  Go into the right room, a barracks, ignore the
chests, and go all the way north where there is a secret Wall to a room with
a lot of switches.  These levers will lock and unlock all the doors in the keep.
An up lever indicates a locked door and a down lever an unlocked door.

The blacksmith room is opened with the 3rd lever from the right, hack open the
top right chest to get the DragonSlayer Sword!

The wizards room is opened with the 2nd lever from the left.  An invisible chest
in the west room has a key to the closet.  Pick open the chests to get some

Explore the rest of the castle at your leisure, and note that Beatrix is a
little bitter over Shamino.  Beware the ovens in the kitchen!  They are booby

Note: Anytime that Shamino dies after talking to Beatrix, she will save his life
      and depart for the Void (where most spirits go after life), and will also
      leave him a Book.

Note: Batlin's goons don't rate a Death Count.

| 16. To the North! |

Once outside of Shamino's castle, have the Hound track Batlin via his Fellowship
Medallion (careless thing to leave lying about).  The dog points north (it
irritates me that he doesn't actually do anything more than say "north!").

Go to (28S, 3E) and go into the cave (don't go in if you don't have your warm
gear! Note: the Helm of Light counts as warm gear, also note that you will find
a full set of warm gear inside as well as a couple of cloaks).  Here are some
hints to get through the cave: go north at the big rock, north at the mushrooms,
left at the fire fields, north at the obelisk, when you see the caltrops turn
south.  And that should get you through the cave. (you can also do the Captain
Stokes thing here too, see below)

When you reach the end of the cave you will meet a dying trapper who worked for
Hazzard.  He tells of an evil sorceress (Gwennon) who attacked their camp.
Search his body for some warm gear.

Captain Stokes:
The evil software pirate silenced the bard Gannt, and now sits in his locked
tower securely pirating copyrighted material!  The fiend!  You get the key to
the tower here.  From the obelisk, go north up the passage just to the west of
the obelisk and down one of the stairs.  Take the moongate.  Get the key and
read the sign.  The ghost will leave you a scroll.  The tower is at (77S, 28W).

There are some other caves north of where you come out.  The first has a Polar
Bear inside, and the second has a lotta dead bodies and some ghosts.

| 17. The Gwani |

The Gwani village is around (23N, 0E).  Talk to all of the Gwani here (be sure
that you aren't wearing a Gwani cloak, nothing like wearing the skin of the
people you are talking to, to get them to like you!).  You will learn several
things here, one that Gwenno is dead and her body is in the Gwani Death Temple,
and that Neyobi is dying.  Talk to Baiyanda about curing Neyobi.  She will also
heal you if you need it.  She says that you need Ice Dragon Blood to heal
Neyobi, and that there are only 2 Ice Dragons left, one to the north, and one to
the East.

Ice Dragon:
Head north to (50N, 3E).  On the way you will meet up with a Gwani hunter who
failed to get the Ice Dragon Blood.  He says that you should beware the front
entrace.  Good advice.  Take the boat out to the Ice Dragon Island (77N, 15W).
Go around to the back entrance (93N, 11E) and sneak on in.  This way has a lot
of teleporters, but you will eventually find yourself at the Dragon's Lair.  Or
just go in the front.  Either way kill the Dragon.  Use the bucket on its dead
body to get the blood.  There is also quite a bit of treasure in there.

Go back to the Gwani village, talk to Yenani and tell her you got the blood.
She takes the blood and tells you this phrase "Isal Sal Cra Gaas Iskar", for use
in the Skullcrusher dungeon.

    Magebane - the penguins got your Magebane.  They are at (53N, 32W) and will
          attack you when you take it.  Guess they got attached to it!  They
          can only be reached via the Ice Boat.

| 18. Vasculio and Skullcrusher |

Use the Whistle again, and have the hound reaquire the scent from Batlin's
Amulet.  He points east!  How... useless.

The entrance to Skullcrusher is at (2N, 1E).  Inside is a corpse with a note
telling of how he locked people in the city.  Do not cast translation.  Put each
stone on the pedestal that has the same letter on its plaque.  Then double click
on the runes in this order: I, S, C, G, I.  Note that there are 2 different I's,
make sure to click them both.

Find Vasculio's lab.  Then find the room with a coffin inside.  Remember how
Vasculio was killed, and then came back to life?  Well he's a vampire.  Read the
scroll below his coffin and he should pop right out.  Make sure to equip the
Magebane here, as it will make killing Vasculio much easier.  Don't agree to
trading the Magebane (are you insane??).  Once you hit him for the first time
with the Magebane, his magic is gone.  Search his body and get the key.  You
don't need to get his treasures yet, but you can if you want (just don't lose

You can talk to the various ghosts in here.  Seems they can't leave this plane
of existence because of the Imbalance.  In the room with all the chests and
barrels in the very bottom left corner is a powder keg.

The exit is far to the NE (by where the Serpent Gate is) and will exit you at
about (24N, 41E).

Note: Those double brass doors to the east go nowhere, and can never be opened.
      You can cheat yourself inside, where you will see some dead bodies (some
      even have items) and a staircase that takes you to the middle of the
      ocean.  Seems the developers were going to have something here and took
      it out!

Eye of the Moon:  (20N, 52E)
When you get out of Skullcrusher, go to the SE, to the temple that you saw in
the Realm of Dreams.  Inside you will find the Moon's Eye, use it to see that
Batlin is going to open the Wall of Lights, and thereby become ultra powerful.
You'd probably better stop him!
Note: You probably notice the "Lodestones" of various emotions, those become
      important later, as does Shriash who is stuck in the wall, and has been
      for millenia.

     Rudyom's Wand - in the lab (not Vasculio's) you can find your old Rudyom's
          wand.  Well it doesn't work anymore, now it just makes people sneeze.
          Goodie.  You do not need to get this item.

DEATH COUNT: 1 (Vasculio, well he was already dead, but now its permanent!)

| 19. Batlin, Spinebreaker, and the Banes |

Note: After this part of the plot, it is impossible to go back.  A lot of people
      will be dead, so get all your training done first, buy all the spells, and
      items that you will need, etc.

Getting to Spinebreaker isn't exactly straightforward, mainly because your map
is flat out innaccurate about this area.  From the temple head east (on your map
it will look like you are going through mountains!).  The entrance to Spine-
breaker is at (39N, 96E).

Go into Spinebreaker, and Batlin will send an Automaton to kill you.  Kill it
instead, and get its key.  The key opens the door to the north, to the left of
the main passage (there are reagants up that way).
Note: Notice all the dead Automaton's in the entrance, if you have the room and
      the strength, grab and carry three of them (you'll see why later).

Go up the right passage, use Telekinesis on the button to open the gate, and
kill this automaton as well.  Go east until you get to 2 gates.  Use the south
button, and Brunt will appear.  Ignore what he says, and now use the north
button and go up, and north through the wall, then east, and then south.  If
you follow Brunt you will have to walk through many traps.  There will be a bow
storehold here with some magic, serpent, and burst arrows.  In the hall to the
bow room, one of the north walls conceals a secret passage, open it and go

You are now in the old Ophidian City.  There are 3 small shrines here that we
need to visit to get the items we need to get to the Big Shrine of Order.  Go
north into the Shrine of Discipline, and search the dead body here for a
Juggernaut Hammer.  Get the Dagger off the pedestal.  Then go south into the
Shrine of Ethicality, and get one of the scrolls there.  East and you will find
the Shrine of Logic, get the abacus there.  There is also Spider Silk there.
Now go to the Temple of the Hierophant, and place each item on the pedestal
there, Scroll, Dagger, Abacus.  The door will open.  Go inside, and go down-
stairs.  An automaton here thinks that you are the Hierophant, he gives you the
Serpent Scepter and dies.  Go back upstairs and place the Scepter on the 
pedestal in the main room.  You will be teleported into the Library.  Get the
keys on the Upper Left table, and under a book on the north desk to the west.
Open the left locked door and get the Book of Order, be sure to read it.  Open
the right door and teleport out.

Go to the SE part of the city, press the button on the column, and the Gargoyle
Palos will come, insult you a bit, and leave.  There are a lot of traps in the
next room so have Destroy Trap ready (after using Detect Trap of course).  Go
east and talk to the Automaton behind the gate.  He is going to ask you
questions about order, to determine if you are a true follower of Order or not.
The answer is: "The Structure of Order", but you can only say that once you've
read the book from the library.  He opens the gate, open the next gate yourself,
and Deadeye will appear, follow him north but beware his traps!  The dead pirate
has a bag with a key in it.  Open the locked door to the north.

Go through the big door to the north, go north.  Selina will appear and attack
you with Palos, Deadeye, and Brunt.  Kill them and get Selina's Dispel Field
Note: If you have Boydon, leave him here, if you take him with you he will die!
      Then you will never be able to get him back!

Go north through the big serpent doors, and all the way north to Batlin.  The
plot takes over for a bit.  Your party surrounds Batlin who opens the Wall of
Lights despite your efforts.  Something goes wrong, very wrong however.  Batlin
is destroyed, and the Banes take over the bodies of Iolo, Dupre, and Shamino.
Shamino becomes Anarchy, Dupre becomes Wantonness, and Iolo becomes the Insanity
Bane.  They then explode leaving all of their possesions.  The Great Serpent
tells you to get the Gwani Horn from Skullcrusher (Vasculio had it sealed in
an Energy Field).
Note: Now you are alone, but you will get all of your party back eventually.  So
      in the mean time to carry all their items, and to help out, create 3
      Automatons (from the entrance)!

Search Batlin for a key, his Serpent Jawbone (transfer his 6 teeth to your Jaw-
bone), and the Blackrock Chaos Serpent.  And regardless of whether you are doing
my Automaton trick, take Iolo's Lute, Dupre's Shield, or Beatrix's Book, and
have a Hound of Doskar track using one of those items.

DEATH COUNT: 5 (Batlin, Selina, Brunt, Deadeye, Palos)

| 20. Gwenno Returns! Sorta... |

The Gwani Horn:
Firstly go back to Skullcrusher, and back to Vasculio's lab.  If you didn't get
all the other items, get them now.  Then cast Dispel Field on the Energy Field,
and take the Gwani Horn.  Now the Great Serpent tells you to go free Gwenno from
the Ice.  Good advice.  The only items that you really need are the Flux
Analyser, the Philanderer's Friend, and the Gwani Horn.  Everything else is just
for fun.

Ice Crypts:
Now we need to go get Gwenno's body from the Gwani Death Temple.  Use the Ice
Boat, again, to get to (93N, 43W) or so--on the map it is located on the "S" in
the Serpent Isle banner.  Caution!  Using the Horn causes ice to explode, which
could damage, even kill your party members.  Gwenno's body is in the ice block
at (102N, 55W).  Get her body, and go to the Monk Isle.

At Monk Isle have Gwenno be resurrected.  She is insane now because the Chaos
Bane twisted her soul.  Find and talk to Karnax, and he tells you to get the
Scroll of the Serpent from Fedabiblio in Moonshade.

Quite a few things to do while we are here.  Moonshade was overrun by monsters
following an attack from Shamino, who is now the Bane of Anarchy.  Use the
Philanderer's Friend on the Statue of Fedabiblio in the seminarium.  He tells
of how Shamino destroyed most of Moonshade (the casualty list as well as where
their bodies are found is listed in the DEATH COUNT), and gives you a key to
Hawk's treasure.  Then get the Scroll of the Serpent from him.  Next go talk to
Stefano.  Seems that Columna put a curse on him, and now a Death Knight pursues
him.  Kill the "Death Knight" (he has some armor), and talk to Stefano again.
He will give you a key to his vault to get your Blackrock Order Serpent, and a
Serpent's Tooth.  We'll hit his vault last.  Go to the Blue Boar, search Hawk
to get another key.  Inside Hawk's room is a chest, inside is a Map that shows
you how to get the Serpent Crown.  Search Gustacio's, Frigidazzi's, Torissio's
and the Magelord's houses to get more Serpent's Teeth.  Search Gustacio's body
in the Seminarium to learn what the Flux Analyzer does.  Get the Comb of Beauty
if you didn't already (instructions are in the first Moonshade section above).

Go to Stefano's old House at (80S, 100E).  The vault just to the west opens with
the key Stefano gave you.  Inside is your Blackrock Order Serpent.

Return to Monk Isle.

DEATH COUNT: 14 - Hawk, Edrin           - Blue Boar
                  Mosh, Pothos          - Provisioner (Ducio)
                  Frigidazzi, Filbercio - Frigidazzi's
                  Flindo                - street by Frigidazzi's
                  Columna               - Columna's House's Yard
                  Julia                 - Columna's House
                  Melino                - Gustacio's House

                  Rocco, Topo           - Outside Stefano's on street

| 21. Discipline and Gwenno |

Back at Monk Isle take the scroll back to Karnax.  He figures everything out,
and realizes that Gwenno needs some water of Discipline.  In the library, the
blue book there will tell you where all the Temples of Order are.  Take the
Serpent Path to the Temple of Discipline. (it is the right choice on the upper
right path)  In the Temple, avoid the trap, and talk to the Automaton, who some-
how manages to choke out that only an Automaton can get the Water of Discipline.
Note the Mind Transference Chamber at the far left.  Then flip the right switch
to open the door to the upstairs.  Go up the left stairs, and read the red book
on body transference.  Hmmm... Back to Monk Isle.

Find Draxta and ask her to show you a vision.  Go to the place of Visions
(7N, 139E) and talk to Draxta again, and ask to see the Vision.  It will show
Petra walking through the acid, while the Avatar waits behind.  Go to Moonshade.
Before you talk to Petra (if you have 4 other people in your party) ask Boydon
to leave.  Then talk to Petra about the Acid, and switching bodies.  She'll
join you and you can go back to Discipline.  Go to the Mind Transference Chamber
and talk to Petra, ask her to switch bodies, then press the button.  You will
switch bodies.  (you may want to equip your old body, er, Petra, with some warm
clothes)  Go down the left stairs, go down and get the key from the invisible
chest, then go up the right stairs, and get the 2 Y shaped things.  On the main
floor, put the white Y in the right side and the Blue in the left.  A small
bridge will form to the stairs.  Go down.  The room to the south has a key.  The
room to the north leads to the acid and the water.  Fill up a bucket with the
water of Discipline.
Note: You can keep Petra in your party if you want, but once you tell her to
      leave she is gone for good.  Also you might want to fill up an extra
      bucket with water here, it will come in handy later on.

Go back to Monk Isle.  Find Gwenno (she is usually in the Library) and use the
water on her, and she will be back to normal!  She won't join you, but will
offer to stay there and research for you.  Goodie.  She wants you to cage the
Banes again (I say again because Batlin did so earlier), and tells you to go to
Moonshade to do that.

| 22. Soul Prisms, Banes and Such |

Go to Moonshade.  Talk to Torissio about soul prisms, and he will teach you
what to do, for a price.  Give him the Philanderer's Friend and he will give
you the spell.  He tells you to talk to Ducio about Worm Gems.  He also mentions
that the Gem on the Black Sword is similar to a Worm Gem.  Talk to Ducio about
Worm Gems, and he'll say that each Gem requires 3 Worm Hearts.  He also says
that the Flux Analyser could fix the Black Sword.  Use the Flux Analyser on
the Black Sword.  To get more Worm Hearts either go North and kill Ice Snakes,
or steal them from Pothos' house.  Make 3 Worm Gems.  Cast Create Soul Prism
on the 3 Gems to turn them into Prisms.

Go back to Monk Isle, and talk to Gwenno again.  She tells you to go to the 3
temples of Chaos, and bathe the Soul Gems in the waters there.  The 3 temples
are Enthusiasm, Tolerance, and Emotion.  Make sure you have a bucket!

Enthusiasm: (80N, 140E)
Take the Serpent Path to get to Enthusiasm (down and left, then left).  When you
first enter Enthusiasm you will be struck by lightning.  Don't worry about the
treasure chest in the first maze, it only has some boots.  Find the Magic Lens
look in it to see that the Banes are in that big castle (White Dragon) north
of Gorlab Swamp.  Use a bucket on the well to get some Water of Enthusiasm, and
then use the water on a soul prism to get a Soul Prism of Enthusiasm.

Emotion: (20N, 52E)
We've been to the Temple of Emotion before, now we go back.  On the Serpent Path
it is Upper Left and left.  Here gather the 4 lodestones of various emotions
(get one of them by talking to Shriash in the wall, and destroying the column).
Place the 4 lodestones on the 4 small pedestals in the room with the Moon's Eye.
Use a bucket on the water, and the bucket on a soul prism to get a Soul Prism
of Emotion.

Tolerance: (61N, 63E)
Take the Serpent Path, and go Lower Left, and down.  The first thing you should
notice once inside is that there is the recently vanished Mortegro.  Yet somehow
he is trapped here by 2 feet of water.  The baby.  He will offer you the Summon
Shade spell if you rescue him.  Get the key from the far left room and go down
stairs.  Go down to the far south cell and talk to Sethys (still alive from the
Ophidian days... somehow).  Cast Serpent Bond (if you don't have it, you can
find it on a scroll upstairs) and go through the left wall.  Flip the switch to
open the north wall.  Get the key.  There's a lot of gold here, but you
shouldn't need money anymore.  Go back upstairs, use the key on the door with
the winch inside, and use the winch.  There is a secret door that leads to the
drawbridge.  Talk to Mortegro, who gives you the Summon Shade spell.  Take him
outside.  He will be obliterated.  Go back to Moonshade, go into Gustacio's
basement and put a bucket on the altar.  Use the water on the last Soul Prism to
get the Soul Prism of Tolerance.

Now we have to fill 3 buckets with the Waters of Order (you'll see why later).
No, you don't need to get 3 buckets, we'll find them on the way.

Discipline, you know how to get the water here.

Ethicality: (32N, 132E)
On the serpent Path it is Lower Right, and down.  If you go upstairs (outside)
you may notice that the fountain is not working.  Go all the way to the right
(from the serpent gate) and double click on the Serpent Carpet to start the
Test of Ethicality.  Answers are "Risk Death", "Leave the Money", and
"Continue", this now starts the test.  In the first test, push the button in
the middle of the flames to save the man.  In the second test, place all of your
valuables on the pedestal, and walk all the way to the right and press the
button.  In the third room, fight Batlin, and whatever happens do not give up
to him, even if you are about to be defeated.  (Note: if you have Power Avatar
on you cannot pass the third test!)  Go outside, and use the bucket there on
the fountain to get the Water of Ethicality.

Logic: (23N, 64E)
Be sure to get an empty bucket before coming to Logic.
On the Serpent Path it is lower right and right.  Looks like you found the other
Ice Dragon, dead.  Find your way to the 5 ice blocks and use the Gwani Horn to
clear the path (head left from the serpent gate, and then generally head up),
you will find a journal in the debris that appears, it has some clues in it
(a logic puzzle!).  Step on the teleporters in this order:
Next place the serpent runes in front of the double doors in this order:
     B C O W
Now we have a little murder mystery to solve.  Automaton Number 7 was killed by
one of the automaton's, but they all have alibi's... Or do they?  Talk to all
of the automaton's and check their alibi's, if one says he was with someone,
does that someone back him up?  Number 4 did it.  Don't accuse him until you
have talked to them all.  Number 4 will then attack you.  Kill him and get his
key.  (In the left room with the stones, place the far left stone on top of the
middle stone to get the key, I don't know what the key is for).  Fill another
bucket with the Water of Logic.

DEATH COUNT: 1 (Mortegro)

| 23. Serpent Treasures |

We'll start by getting Silverpate's treasure.  Go to (50N, 40E) and walk through
the north wall.  You should have the map of this area from Sleeping Bull Inn,
if not go there and get it!  Avoid the traps here, and the Caltrops.  Pick open
the chests (don't worry, none of them are trapped), and get the treasures,
be sure to get the Blackrock Balance Serpent.  If you didn't get the Serpent's
Crown, be sure to get it (86S, 23W).

Go to Fawn.  Search Zulith's body to learn of the Serpent Armor, and that
Yelinda will know where it is.  You will also notice that Iolo struck this place
hard and almost nothing is left.  You can talk to Ruggs here, since he is still
alive.  Go to Yelinda's throne room, and get her Necklace.  Go to the entrance
to Gorlab, and have the Hound of Doskar track Yelinda off the necklace.  At
around (32S, 65E) you will find her.  She lost her skin to Iolo.  Give her the
Comb of Beauty and she will give you the key to the storeroom to get the Serpent
Armor.  A monk will appear and take her away.

Go back to Fawn, go to her throne room, and open the SE door, and go north
through the wall and down the stairs.  The Serpent Armor is in the right chest
on the upper left table.  Get it and put it on!  Also in the treasure room are
2 fire swords, a firedoom staff, a bow of infinity, a lightning wand, money,
jewels, gems, potions, and some other armors.

If you want to (you don't have to yet) go to Monitor.  Harnna is the only person
alive here, and will give you a "prophecy".

| 24. White Dragon Castle and the Banes |

Make sure to have the 3 charged Soul Prisms and the 3 Waters of Order, and some
Automatons to help out as well.  Also have the Black Sword, and have used the
Flux Analyser on it.

Go to (33S, 86E) and cross the drawbridge here.  You will be confronted by the
Ghost of the King of the White Dragon castle, he will make some vague threats
and (sometimes) turn into an Ice Dragon.  Go through the double doors and go
into the room to the right with all of the mirrors.  Iolo will appear, taunt you
and then the mirrors will explode into a gaggle of Avatars.  Open the secret
Wall to the lower right, go into the lab and get the key off the corpse.  Use
the key to open the library (the room above the lab), Shamino will appear and
tell you to read some books.  Some books will explode.  Go up the stairs, and
then down the stairs to the left.  Iolo will appear with a Nightmare.  Get the
key from the desk.  Go back to the library, and back to the main hallway.  Open
the far left chamber, Iolo will appear.  Avoid the traps and flip the switch
under the bale of wool.

Walk through the wall directly under the stairs, and get the key from the chest.
Go up the stairs, open the door, go right, and open the left door and go down
the stairs.  You should be in the Music Room.  Iolo will appear here and leave
a ghost to attack you.  Get the key under the pipes on the table.  Go back to
the room with the chest under the stairs, unlock the door to the north and go
up that way.  Open the door to the right.  Go north and down the stairs.  Kill

Iolo's Gazer and open the right door.  Get the key from the drawers.  Go back
into the hall and go south and open the south door.  Open the right door, then
open the south door, and walk all the way to the left where the Banes are.

Note: Save it here!  Seriously!
Equip yourself with the Black Sword and kill the Banes.  After you kill each
Bane you have to stuff it into their appropriate Soul Prism.  So kill one and
put it straight in.  (you do that by using the Black Sword on a Soul Prism, the
Soul Prism will then get a "halo" around it)
   Dupre -- Enthusiasm Prism
   Shamino -- Tolerance Prism
   Iolo -- Emotion Prism
After that you should have 3 Soul Prisms with the 3 Banes inside.  If you failed
to get them, reload.

Take their bodies to Monk Isle and have them resurrected.  They will act like
Gwenno did, and need water used on them (that's why we got the water!)
   Iolo -- Logic
   Shamino -- Ethicality
   Dupre -- Discipline

After all 3 of your companions are resurrected, all 3 bells will ring signaling
the return of Xenka.  She will say a whole lotta things and give you the second
to last Serpent Tooth, with the instructions to go to the Isle of the Crypts.

| 25. Isle of Crypts and the Chaos Serpent |

Order Hierophant:
To get to the Isle of Crypts, take the Serpent Path Right, then the second one
up.  The entrance is at (12N, 44W).  In the room with the many serpent carpets
take the south passage.  Go all the way down the passage until you find the
button on the west wall, go north through the north wall.  You will be tele-
ported.  Go along the north passage, all the way, beat the mummy, and take
the scroll from its body.  Place the scroll on the pedestal (by the other pede-
stal with the Gold Serpent).  You will be teleported into the library, read the
book in the center to be teleported again.  To the left and north is the Eye
of the Serpent.  Cast Dispel Field on the Energy Field and swipe the Eye.  North
of the Eye is a secret passage, go up there, and onto the teleporter.  Go up
open the secret passage to the coffin, and open the coffin.  Then cast Summon
Shade, to revive the Hierophant.  If you have all the required Serpent
Artifacts, he will tell you that.  He tells you that to restore Balance you must
reunite the Chaos Serpent, but that he cannot tell you how to do that (curse
that mummy!).  After that he will vanish forever.

Chaos Hierophant:
The Chaos Hierophant is in the Temple of Enthusiasm, but first we need to get
his lackey Sethys (remember him?) in the Temple of Tolerance, and ask him to
join you.  As you leave the Temple, Sethys starts to feel his age (1000? 2000?)
and dies.  Take the Orb off his corpse.  Now go to Enthusiasm.  Right off of the
Serpent Gate cast Summon Shade to talk to the Chaos Hierophant.  He will give
you all the instructions that you will need.  As you go he says that the Rite
requires a Force to bind the Banes together, but that he doesn't have a clue
what this force is.  He will then go *poof*.
Note: another way to talk to the Chaos Hierophant is to go to (71S, 52E) go
      inside and talk to the ghost there.  I don't think that he is supposed to
      be there, but he was in the original version, and also in the later
      version (silver seed), so I can only assume that it for some reason is
      supposed to be there.

Final Serpent Tooth:
The Gwani have the last tooth, but as you may notice, they have recently
suffered a recent rash of Trapper attacks.  Talk to Yenani about where all the
other Gwani to learn that.  Find the trapper's lair at (60N, 24E), hack the door
away, and go inside.  Talk to the Trapper, but that gets us nowhere, so again
we have to resort to violence.  Kill him and get his key.  Go north and use the
key on the north brass box.  Get your glass sword and the Gwani Amulet.  Go back
to the Gwani and give Yenani the Amulet, and she will give you the last Serpent

The Death of Dupre:
Go back to Monk Isle and talk to Xenka.  She says that only the Ultimate
Sacrifice by either you, your companions, or Gwenno, will solve the Imbalance
now.  You will draw straws, and you personally will lose.  Bummer.  Guess there
are no perks to being the "Hero from another Land".  Go to the Crematorium in
Monitor.  Dupre won't allow the Avatar to die this way, however, and dies in
your place.  Get his ashes, and whatever of his belongings you want.

Chaos Serpent:
Go back to Skullcrusher, and go to the big double doors to the north.  Place a
powder keg (there are several in skullcrusher, and also some in Marsten's
treasure hold back in Monitor) by the doors and ignite it.  The doors will be
blown apart giving you access to the tunnels.  Make your way through the tunnels
they aren't easy, but don't have any secret walls or anything so I won't walk
through it--I know that isn't much in a Walkthrough, but it really isn't as hard
as it seems.  (if you find the teleporters, they take you to a pen by Sleeping
Bull Inn)  Eventually you will get to the Grand Shrine of Chaos.  Open up the
Secret Wall to the North and go inside.  Place the Blackrock Chaos Serpent on
the middle pedestal, and the Wall of Lights should open.  Then place the Soul
Prisms on the right pedestals: (they should burst to flame)
   Enthusiasm Pedestal -- Wantonness Bane
   Tolerance -- Anarcy
   Emotion -- Insanity
Then place the Ashes of Dupre on the last pedestal.  Dupre will talk through the
Chaos Serpent and tell you to get your butt over to Sunrise Isle.  Then Xenka
will appear.  Don't leave without your Chaos Serpent!

     Glass Sword - Hazzard has your glass sword locked away in his treasure
         chest.  Kill him and open the chest.

DEATH COUNT: 3 - (Sethys, Hazzard, Dupre)

| 26. Sunrise Isle and Endgame |

Talk to Xenka again and get the Serpent Sword, she tells you to go to Sunrise
Isle and there to restore the Balance to the land!  Use the Serpent Gate (well
that is the ONLY way to get there!) and it is the gate Straight Up from where
you arrive on the Serpent Path.

You will be in the dead center of Sunrise Isle when you arrive.  To the north
and south of you are 3 pedestals (each direction) and a scale (each direction)
place a blue snake on one side of each scale, and a red snake on the other.
This causes various items to appear.  Take all of the items.  There are 6
temples representing all of the virtues of both order and chaos.  The idea here
is to use Balance.  So in an order temple, place a Chaos item; and visa versa.
Here is what to put where:
    Torch (representing Ethicality) -- Tolerance
    Abacus (logic) -- Emotion
    Dagger (discipline) -- Enthusiasm
    Chain (tolerance) -- Ethicality
    Heart (emotion) -- Logic
    Rose (enthusiasm) -- Discipline

Once that business is done, you will get a book.  North of where you came in
are 2 pillars, read the book in between the pillars.  A bridge of Blue Fire will
appear, cross and do it again, this time normal fire will appear, cross that too
and you will be at the Shrine of Balance.

Go left find the key, and then go all the way right.  Use the key on the brass
box and get a serpent candle.  Go all the way left and put the Serpent Candle
on the pedestal there.  Get the Ice Diamond.  Get one of the small chunks of
ice that appears, and put it on the other pedestal on the far right side.  Get
the Fire Ruby.  Go back to the  center and put the appropriate gem on their

Here you should put on all the Serpent stuff you've been carrying around:  Ring,
Staff, Sword, Armor, Necklace, Earrings, and Crown.

It ain't over yet!  Now we are in yet another chamber with yet another pedestal.
On the left side the buttons open doors on the right side, and yes the reverse
is true.  Find the 2 cubes of order and the 2 cubes of chaos and place them on
the pedestal.  This will create a bridge below you with a teleporter on it.
Step on the teleporter.  Then go north and place the Serpent Staff, Armor and
Crown on the table.  You will be declared Balanced by the Great Earth Serpent
and teleported back, and now the doors will open.

Go north into the Main Shrine of Balance.  The Order Serpent attempts to stop
you using a half dozen or so Ice Men (elemental things).  Kill them and keep

Place the 3 Blackrock Serpents in their appropriate places.  The Wall of Lights
will open, and the Earth Serpent tells you to put the Eyes of the Serpents on
the pedestal.  Do so.  The Snake Altar will start getting jiggy, so whack him
a good one with your Serpent Sword.

Congrats!  You beat Serpent Isle!  Sit back and enjoy the endgame!  At the very
end the Guardian grabs you, and then in Ultima 8 drops you off in Pagan.

Your total DEATH COUNT was 60 + 4 (Silver Seed) so 64

| Appendix: |
| A. Silver Seed Walkthrough |

Items in Silver Seed: Keyring, Belt of Strenghth, Helm of Light, Gaunlets of
    Quickness, Ring of Reagants, Erinons Axe, and other small items.

To get to the Silver Seed area, use the Amulet of Balance while on a Serpent
Gate.  You will (very slowly) be teleported, but you only have to sit through
it this one time.
Note: Once you arrive you can only leave if you pass the Silver Seed area, or
      if you wait a WEEK for the amulet to recharge.

Immediately go north and talk to the Silver Automaton, he thinks that you are
the champion of balance, and gives you the Key Ring (very nice), and tells
you to find the 4 globes to get the Silver Seed.
Note: The key ring is a very nice artifact, everytime you get a key put it on
      the keyring, and then to use the keyring, just press 'k'.  However, when
      you find the Ice and Fire keys, DO NOT PUT THEM ON THE KEYRING!!!!  Those
      keys are meant to make another key, the Blackrock key, and they cannot
      do that if they are on a keyring.

Also in the keep is a Mage, a Trainer, and a Healer.  For the time being, when
you die in Silver Seed you will reappear at the Healer's, not on Monk Isle.

Abandoned Outpost:
Leave the Keep and go left, then up, until a woman, Rieya, appears.  Talk to her
to get your clues, but don't take everything she says seriously.  Go into the
outpost.  Go down the stairs, go across the bridge, and then through an illusion
wall on the left.  Flip the switch here, go back out and then right through the
now opened wall.  You will now be in a room with 3 switches on the wall, and if
you try to go through it, traps will activate.  Press the top right, top left,
and then bottom left switch (in that order) to deactivate the traps.  Now you
will be in a room full of corpses.  Search them all and get the Lightning Whip
(you have to lose this later) and a key.  Use your keyring to open the first
door, and walk through the next two (they are illusions).  Then go up, find the
key in the room with the green glowing things (its under some debris), and
search these rooms for the 2 scrolls.  Place the Lightning Whip on the gold
pedestal with the Blue Flame on it to get rid of the Force Barriers.  Go down
the stairs, then down the next set of stairs, and finally up the other stairs,
and up the last stairs.  You will be in a room full of corpses who come alive
and attack you.  Continue left.  You will be attacked by Living Armors.  Kill
them and work your way through the sleep fields. (if you want to get rid of
the sleep fields, go back to where there were 3 plates and the switch, and step
on the plates in this order 3, 2, 1)  Get the orb, and go back to the magically
locked door, open it and then go down (this door will also close behind you
and magically lock).  Go straight down, then left.  Pick open the lower left
treasure chest to get some spells (including 2 unlock magic spells!), then go
down again.  You will be in a torture chamber, pick open the upper cell, and
get the scroll.  Go back to the double doors that were locked (by where you used
the whip to get rid of the force barriers), open them and go up.  Attack the
debris here until it disappears.  Go down the stairs, search the body and get
the rope.  Go back out until you get to where the wall opened up, and go south.
Use the rope on the well and go down.  Use the rope again, and go down again.
Go to the force walls here, and use the scroll that you found in the cell to
get rid of the force walls.  Go down the stairs.  Kill the Ice Trolls, and
search around until you find a glowing blue belt.  That is the Belt of Strength!
Pick the 2 chests by it to get gold, and ammunition.

The Maze:
Just north of the abandoned outpost is a maze.  Drusilla (another of those dark
women) appears here and gives some advice.  When you go into the maze, all of
your belongings will disappear (they are in the hollow tree outside of the maze)
When you reach the end of a level, the whole level will open up.
Level 1: Left, down, left 2, down, right 2, down, left 4, up, right, up, left,
         up 3, right 5, down, left 2, down.
Level 2: Up 3, left, down 2, left, up 2, right, up, left, down, left, down 2,
         left, down, left, up 3, right, up, right.  (after the level opens up
         go find the corpse and get its cheese)
Level 3: Right, down 3, left 2, up 2, right 3, up 2, left 4 (get cheese), down 3
         right 4.
Level 4: Down 3, right 3, up 2 (talk to monster here, give cheese, get orb), up,
         left, up, down, left, down 2, right 4, down, left, up 3, right, up,
         left 2, up, right (get Helm of Light off corpse), and right through
         illusionary wall.  Done!
Get your equipment from the tree (don't forget the purple orb you just got!).

Aram Dol's Lair:
This one is probably (definately) the hardest of the little dungeons.  It is
on the North side of the keep.  There is a Dragon named Draxinar in here, he
is more useful alive as he gives information.  But that is not where we are
going.  From the entrance take the top passage to the right, go all the way up
and take the stairs.  Go right, down, then right and at the first opportunity
go up and up again.  You will be in a large chamber filled with Arachnians.
In the center of the chamber is a room with a staircase.  Take the stairs.  Go
left up and then step onto the teleporter in the open room.  Go right, get the
key behind the pedestal and go up the right passage, open the door, go down
the stairs, and flip the blue switch, go back up the stairs, down into the room
again and finally up the left passage (fire traps should go off).  You will be 
in a room with a large pillar, behind that pillar on the north wall is a passage
(illusionary wall), go up there and get the key.  Then go back and down the
stairs.  Unlock the door and go down the next stairs.  You should quickly find
yourself in a series of lever puzzles.
  Lever Puzzle One: Flip the 2nd switch
  Two: Flip 1, 2, and 5
  Three: Flip 1, 2, 3, and 6
Go up the stairs, and then down, but not through the door.  Instead go through
the right wall into the Crypts.  Kill the Mummies and get the green key.  Go
up through an illusion in the middle crypt, then down the stairs, across the
fire and get the glowing green key.  Go back to the main crypt.  Unlock the
gate leading to the stairs, and go up.  Go down and unlock this gate too, and
continue going down.  There are skeletal Dragons here.  Go right, then up
through yet another illusion.  Go down the stairs.  You should now be in a long
hallway with 10 rooms on each side.  Flip the switch in each room, then flip
the brass switch at the end of the hallway to continue.  Go down the stairs.
Kill Aram-Dol the Liche here. (not as easy as it sounds)  Search his body to
get the key.  Open the north door and get his treasures: the Orb, the Gauntlet
of Quickness, Erinons Axe, Full Set of Magic Armor, etc.  I'm sure that you can
find your own way out.

The Fiend:
To the right of the Keep is the Fiend's Lair.  From the entrance, work your way
to the right until you reach the stairs, go down them.  Go right, up, left (you
should be in a room with headless), then all the way right past all the buzzsaws
and down the stairs, then up the next stairs.  Go right, down, right, down,
right, up, left through the explosions and up.  Pick the door here and talk to
the Fiend.  He asks you to get the Ring of Reagants for him.  Go back to the
first staircase (the one from the entrace) but don't go up it.  Instead from
there go right, and up through an illusionary wall.  Then go right, and down,
then down the stairs.  From there go diagonally down and right until you reach
a trail of coins, follow that trail down into a room, mind the fires, search
the corpse here for the Golden Orb!  Now follow the coins up, then go right.
You will be in a room with another blackened corpse and some traps shooting at
it.  Go up through the wall right above where the corpse is.  Work your way
up and to the left until you get to some stairs.  Go up the stairs.  Go all the
way down, then all the way right, then up and through another wall to the north.
The Ring of Reagants is in the rubble, you should be able to see a little green
speck.  Go back to the Fiend, who attacks you, and your done!

The Silver Seed:
Go to the Laboratory in the Keep.  To the right of the lab is a staircase down,
and a candlestick.  Move the Candlestick and press the button.  Go back to the
lab and down the now revealed stairs.  Follow the path until you reach the 4
pedestals.  Place the Golden Orb on the lowest pedestal, the Red on the left,
purple on the middle, and blue on the right.  Open the door and take the Silver
Seed.  The 3 witches appear and attempt to stop you, kill them and take their
3 keys.  Open the door and continue through until you reach the grotto.  Karnax
will appear and give some advice.  Stand near the dirt area in the center, and
use the Silver Seed to create a Silver Tree!

Congrats!  You passed the Silver Seed!

| D. Secrets and Cheats |

As with The Black Gate, you can access the Debug Cheat Menu by adding a special
word at the command line.

With Silver Seed:
  "serpent manimal"
Without Silver Seed:
  "serpent pass"

In the game, press F2 to bring up the Debug Menu.
                   F3 to bring up the Teleport Map
                   F5 casts any spell (hit F5, push number of the spell, select
                      who gets to cast it, and if needed select what to cast it
                    4 - dumps contents, used to see what someone is
                      carrying.  Try it on Lord British.

The Debug Menu should look something like:
  [b]usiness schedule  [h]ack mover...: No
  [d]o Schedule.: All  [l]ocation.....: Off
  [g]ame flags         [i]nspect
  [n]umber ID...: Off  [m]odify Npc
  [t]eleport           [u]nk BugChkin : Yes
  [p]ower Avatar: Off  [q]ueue Toggle.: Off
  [s]et time           [c]reate item
  [+-] Time Rate:   1  [a]ctivity dump
  [f]ollowers...:* No* [X]it

For the purposes of this debug menu, the avatar is considered NPC 0, with
everyone else in the game numbered as well.  Choosing "Number ID" will show
all the NPC numbers.  A near complete list of NPC's can be found in Appendix
"E. Monsters and NPC's".

-- "Hack Mover" allows you to pick up all objects, including the scenery.
Nothing is more fun that picking a mountain apart to see how it ticks.  Also
you can pick yourself up.
-- "Followers" brings in everyone that can join your party.  (up to the maximum
number of followers anyway)
-- "Create Item" is just what it says.  You can create EVERYTHING, including an
Avatar Corpse!  Creepy!

Now a little bit more on the "m"odify NPC option.  You can modify every NPC in
the game, including all enemies.  You can affect their (or your) stats, status,
and make them do things, called a "business activity".  Typical business
activities are "preaching", "baking", "follow avatar", etc.  The best "status" 
change you can do is to make yourself Ethereal, which is essentially a walk
through walls option.  Very fun, but remember you cannot go up stairs, or go up
in any way at all while ethereal; instead you will walk through the stairs.  To
go up a level while ethereal use the Hack mover and pick yourself up.  If you
want to change an NPC's appearance, you can use the "2" Polymorph edit, a some-
what complete list of those can be found in the "E. Monsters and NPC's" section

**WARNING!!!** Doing any of the above cheats can result in a corrupted savegame.
You may not be able to pass the game if you cheat!  So don't save it if you
cheat and don't cheat unless you don't want to pass the game.  You shouldn't
cheat anyway... what kind of Avatar are you?

Note: Never ever turn "Party" off on the Avatar, this will make it impossible to
      move the Avatar, which makes playing the game very very hard indeed!  I
      accidently did this once, and since I was far and didn't want to save it
      like this (you can't undo it once you've done it), I had to move myself
      around with the Hack Mover, not a very fun thing to do.

Avoid the Lightning:
The only way to avoid the Teleport storm at the beginning of the game is to
use a cheat teleport.  Since the Teleport storm is activated based on location,
e.g. when you step off the boat, all you have to do is teleport off the boat to,
say Monitor.  However the game was meant to go through the Teleport Storm, and
there is no real way (besides playing the whole game that way) to tell what ill
effects this may have.  A few things that I noticed when I did it, were these:
 - Whenever Dupre leaves the party (like in the knights test) he and 2 Pikemen
   keep approaching you to join, if he can't join (again in the knights test)
   he will talk to you again, and again, and again (I got around this by
   Paralyzing him.).
 - You will still find your items around the world.  For example, your magic bow
   is still on the bear skeleton, even though you never lost it.
I didn't play it any farther than becoming a knight, so I don't know what other
effects this might have on the game.

Jive Talkin':
To watch the intro or the endgame (without actually playing the game) type:
  intro hisss
  endgame hisss
or in the static directory create the files
and then start the game, and in the main menu you should see "View Endgame"
To see the Jive intro, where the Guardian reveals that he is really a sadistic
muppet type:
  intro hisss jive

Spider Man:
At (52S, 155E) is a small Spider Temple with a dead woman.  You can find Spider
Silk here, as well as a poison dagger and a locket.

Naked Woman:
At (23S, 126E) is a small camp, with the only occupant being a naked blonde
woman.  Odd.

Erstam's Private Retreat:
This one is considered "Cheating".  Go to (81S, 100E) and place a crate by the
stump to climb onto it.  You will be teleported to a small island.  Don't step
on the teleporter here, instead, work your way north by way of going east.
Eventually you will get to a new island, go in and find Erstam's Retreat.  He
has a lot of naked women here, as well as some very nice items, including some
Plot Items (hence why its cheating).

Cat's Revenge:
In Ultima I this island was called "Dead Cat's Life II" now it is called CLAW,
or Cat's Isle.  I've heard there is a non-teleport way to get here, but since
CLAW is a cheat itself, you may as well F3 here.  (112S, 62E)  There are many
cats around here, as well as some human corpses.  Go inside to get some treasure
and some Plot Items (like the Gwani Horn).

  Note: Whenever you put an NPC into your party, and look into their inventory,
        sometimes they won't have a head.  This is because that person is not
        supposed to ever be in your party.  So who has a head in inventory?
        Quite a few people actually:
          Iolo, Shamino, Dupre, Boydon, Petra, Gwenno, Automatons, Sethys,
          Stefano, and Wilfred.
        Of those, only Gwenno will not join you normally, but does have a head
        in the Inventory.
