Quest Outline


Trinsic – Murder investigation

You leave the moongate in the middle of a conversation between Iolo and Petre as they discuss the tragedy that had just occurred.

Iolo will join you and a mysterious tremor will occur.

Finnigan, the mayor of Trinsic, walks up to you and asks you to investigate the murder of Christopher and Inamo.  Agree to do so and when the mayor asks if you have searched the stables, say no.

Enter the stable just to the north to see the murder victims.  Pick up the key from the body.

Talk to Petre to learn a little more about the murders.

Talk to the citizens of Trinsic to learn more about the murder.  Talk to Klog at the Fellowship branch to learn a little about this new religion called the Fellowship.

Talk to Spark (found near the northwest corner of town) to hear his story.  He caught a glimpse of a man with a hook and a wingless gargoyle fleeing the stables that night.  He will ask to join your party.

Use the key found on the body on the treasure chest on the second floor of Spark’s house.  Inside you will find a Fellowship medallion, a strange message, and 100 gold coins.  Talk to Spark about the items in the chest.  He will allow you to keep the gold.

Talk to Gilberto in the healer’s house where he is recovering from being knocked out.  He suspects the murderers sailed to Britain on the Crown Jewel.

Talk to Gargon the shipwright to confirm your suspicions about a man with a hook and the Crown Jewel.

Give your investigation report to Finnigan.  Christopher was blacksmith.  You found a key at the murder site which opened a chest containing gold, a medallion, and a scroll.  You suspect a man with a hook who may have left on the Crown Jewel.  The mayor will give you 100 coins and a password which will allow you to leave Trinsic after you answer a few questions.

Before you leave Trinsic, buy some equipment from Dell and a horse and wagon from Petre.

Give the password ‘Blackbird’ to one of the guards at the town gates to leave the city.

You are now free to go anywhere in Britainia and pursue just about any quest.  It is best to ride your wagon north to Britain for more information, allies, and equipment.


Britain – The plot thickens

First visit Shamino in the Blue Boar.  He will give you your pocket watch, with which you can tell the time, and he will join your party.  He will also tell you a bit about what is going on in Britainia

Talk to Clint the shipwright and he will tell you that the Crown Jewel never came to Britain

Go to the Royal Museum near the centre of Britain.  When no one is looking, take the eight stones of virtue.  It’s not stealing since they technically belong to you.  These stones are useful for teleportation.

Visit Lord British in the castle.  He will tell you what has been happening in Britainia and will give you some useful information.  He will also lend you his orb of the Moons which will allow you to create a moongate anywhere.  He will also give you his ship, the Golden Ankh (currently in Vesper) to sail to the Isle of Fire.

Go to Lord British’s study on the west end of the castle and take the key out of the drawer

Enter the closet in Lord British’s room in the northwest corner of the castle.  Pull the lever next to the table to enter the secret passage surrounding the castle.

Take the passage to the entrance of the castle and climb the stairs

Go to the northwest corner of the castle and enter the storeroom using the key you found in the study.  Your equipment and spell book are here.


Miscellaneous – Building your strength

To finish the rest of the game, your party will need to build their strength, buy equipment, and find various useful items.  The following points are hints for how to do this and do not need to be done right away or in any particular order.

Ask Rudyom in Cove for his magic carpet.  He will let you have it if you can find it.  It can be found just outside the Dungeon Despise, at the north end of the lake in the Dragonspine Mountains.  Use it to fly anywhere in Britainia.

Be sure to buy a sextant so you can see where you are on your map.

The forest of Yew is a good place to raise your experience.  Defeat the guards and paladins there and take their weapons and armor to equip your own party.  Use their gold to buy any other equipment they need and to pay for training to improve their skills.

Once you have gained some strength go to the Dungeon Destard.  Grab all the treasure and defeat the dragons there for piles of gems.  Sell the gems to Sean the jeweler in Britain for 30 gold apiece.

Enter the cave on an island just west of Serpent’s Hold.  Inside the cave is over 1000 gold worth of treasure, several powerful Glass Swords, some magic armor, and a few other useful things.  Make sure you move the caltrops in front of the cave out of the way.

Useful spells to learn: Heal, Cure, Mark, Recall, Unlock, Séance, and Dispel Field.

Use the Mark and Recall spells on the stones of virtue to move around quickly.


The Great Forest – The Emps

In Minoc you will find two more people who opposed the Fellowship murdered by Hook.

Get your fortune told by Margareta, the gypsy near Minoc.  She will give you a lot of information about the quests you must undertake to defeat the new evil threatening Britainia.  She will also tell you to contact the wisps in the forest of Yew to reach the Time Lord who wished to speak with you.

Ask the monk Taylor in Empath Abbey about the wisps and he will tell you that the emps probably know how to contact them.  He tells you that to contact the emps, you must offer them honey found in Bee Cave and gives you a smoke bomb to help you get the honey.

Enter the Bee Cave just south of Empath Abbey and get some honey.  You may have to fight some bees to get out again.

Go to the east end of the Great Forest to find the emps.  Look for bluish-silvery trees.  Offer one some honey and they will talk to you.

Talk to the emp Trellek and ask him to join you so you can talk to the wisps.  He tells you to get permission from Saralek first.

Talk to the emp Saralek and she will tell you to get Salamon’s permission first.

Talk to Salamon and she will tell you to get the woodcutter from Yew to sign a document to stop cutting down their Silverleaf trees.

Go to Yew and talk to Ben the logger.  Explain the situation to him and he will sign the emp’s document.

Return the document to Salamon the emp and she will give Trellek permission.

Talk to Saralek again, but she will refuse to give Trellek permission to leave.  She suggests you ask Trellek to make a whistle for you instead, so you can contact the wisps.

Give Saralek’s suggestion to Trellek and he will make a whistle for you.

Go to the old fortress in the middle of the forest and approach the wisp there (the small blue-white ball).  It will begin a conversation with you if you have Trellek’s whistle.  Ask the wisp about the Time Lord and it will propose a trade of information.  It asks for Alagner from New Magincia’s notebook.


Skara Brae – The Questions of Life and Death

Go to New Magincia and speak with Alagner at the north end of the island.  Ask him for the notebook and he will agree to give it to you if you go to Skara Brae and ask the Tortured One for the answers to the questions of Life and Death.

Be sure to have at least one magic weapon (a flame sword will do) to defeat the undead on Skara Brae.  There are magic axes available on the island which will also be able to destroy the undead.

Go to the west end of the continent by Skara Brae.  Cast Séance and talk to the ferryman.  He will take you across to Skara Brae for 2 gold coins.

Talk to the ghosts on the island to learn why Skara Brae was destroyed.

Talk to Caine the alchemist in the northeast part of the island.  He will agree to tell you the answers to the questions of life and death if you free the town.

Talk to Mordra the healer and she will tell you what ingredients you need to make a potion to destroy Horrace.

Take the black potion (invisibility), the red potion (curing), and the multi-colored potion (essence of mandrake) from Mordra’s house.

Return to Caine and ask him for the formula.  He will explain how to mix the potions.  Put the three potions under the three connecting tubes under the contraption in the centre of Caine’s house.  Put the empty vial from the shelf under the tube that twists.  Double-click on the contraption and the mixture will form.  Take the potion.

Talk to Trent the blacksmith and he will tell you what happened to his wife.  Take the music box from the table.

Go to the Dark Tower on the northwest corner of the island and play the music box for Lady Rowena.  She will momentarily come to her senses and will give you her ring to give to Trent.

Return to Trent and give him the ring.  He will lose his fury and you can talk to him more reasonably.  He will ask you to get an iron bar so he can complete the Soul Cage.

Go to the cemetery below Mordra’s house and grab one of the iron bars lying on the ground.

Give the iron bar to Trent and he will finish the iron cage.

Take the cage to Mordra for further instructions.

Return to the Dark Tower and go to the back.  Walk through the wall to enter the room with the Well of Souls.  Double-click on the cage and then click on the well to power up the cage.

Wait until midnight when Horrace goes to sleep.  Use the cage on Horrace to trap him.  Pour the potion on him and he will return to his normal self.  He will thank you and then ask you to escort Rowena back to Trent.

Talk to Rowena and she will follow you.  Take her to Trent and the two will be reunited.

Return to Horrace and he will tell you how to destroy the Well of Souls.  One of the spirits must sacrifice themselves.

Ask the mayor Forsythe if he will make the sacrifice.  He says he may do it if no one else will.

Ask all the people of Skara Brae to sacrifice.  This includes Caine, Ferryman, Markham, Mordra, Paulette, Quenton, Rowena, and Trent.  None are willing to sacrifice.  Talk to the mayor again and he will agree to make the sacrifice.

Lead the mayor to the will and talk to him.  Forsythe will jump in and the well will be destroyed and the souls of the town will be freed.

Talk to Horrace again and he will give you his firedoom staff.

Ask Caine for the answers to the questions of Life and Death and he will give you the answer: “there are no answers, only questions”.

The ferryman will return you to the mainland.


Alagner’s supply room  – Magical puzzle

Return to Alagner with the answers to the questions of Life and Death – no answers.  He will give you the key to his supply room.

Step of the blue carpet and you will be teleported to the other side of the building.

Use the key to open the next door.

Step on the left teleport to be teleported near the beginning of the maze.

Continue to the center room with the teleport and walk through the north wall to get to the northern room.

Remove the candlestick from the table and use the remaining six crates to build a stair from the table to the door above.

Climb the stair of crates and use Alagner’s key to enter the room above.

Take the notebook from the shelf in front of you.  It is a good idea to read the notebook.  It contains Alagner’s observations about the Fellowship.


Time Lord  – Some questions answered and new challenges ahead

Return to the wisp in the Great Forest of Yew and present the notebook to it.  It will absorb all the information inside.  The wisp will tell you how to find the Time Lord and will give you information about the Guardian and the Black Gate.

Use your Orb of Moons to create a moongate.  Keep entering moongates until you reach the Shrine of Spirituality.

Talk to the Time Lord and you will learn a lot of useful information.  He was the one who sent the red moongate to bring you to Britainia.  He will instruct you to destroy the Sphere generator to free him.

Return to Alagner’s house in New Magincia.  Upon entering, you will find Alagner’s body horribly mutilated like the bodies in Trinsic and Minoc.  The Guardian will laugh at you as you enter the house and will thank you for helping him.  Use the crystal on the table to witness Hook killing Alagner.  You also see Elizabeth and Abraham looking on.


Dungeon Despise -- The Sphere Generator

Go to the Dungeon Despise found at the north end of the lake in the mountains northwest of Britain.

Keep going north until you and your party are suddenly teleported to the right.

Go right, down, right, and down and you will be teleported to a new area again.

Keep going southwest and eventually you will reach the Sphere Generator blocked by a red Moongate.  Every time you enter the moongate, you are teleported back several steps.

Use the Mark spell so you can return here quickly later.

Return to the time Lord and tell him your problem.  He will tell you to find Nicodimus’s hourglass.

Go to Empath Abbey and talk to Nicodimus the mage.  You will need to use the spell Unlock to enter his house.  Ask him about the hourglass and he will tell you that he sold it.

Go to Beverlea the antique dealer in Paws and buy the hourglass from her.

Return to Nicodimus and ask him to enchant the hourglass.  He will enchant it only if you repair the magical ether.


Dungeon Deceit -- The Tetrahedron Generator

Return to the Time Lord and ask him how to fix the magical ether.  He will tell you to visit Penumbra in Moonglow.

Go to the island of Moonglow and go to Penumbra’s house on the northwest tip.

To enter her house you need to solve a number of puzzles.  You have to find the item the plaque refers to and place it just below the plaque.  The items needed are hammer (2-handed), lockpick, gold ring, spool of thread, and gold coin.  After the last one a key will appear and you will be able to enter Penumbra’s house.

Cast Awaken on Penumbra to wake her up and then talk to her.  She will awaken in great pain because of the disturbance in the ether.  She will ask you to get four pieces of blackrock to protect her.

Go to Cove and ask Rudyom the mage about blackrock.  Pick up four pieces from around his house and the transmuter.  Read his notebook to discover what he has learned about blackrock.

Return to Penumbra in Moonglow and put the four pieces of blackrock on the pedestals around her.  Talk to her and she will be feeling much better.  She will tell you that the Tetrahedron Generator in the Dungeon Deceit is damaging the ether.  She will ask you to go to King Draximsom of the gargoyles to get the Ethereal Ring which should beat the defenses of the Tetrahedron Generator.

Go South to the island of Terfin and talk to King Draximsom about his Ethereal Ring.  He tells you he sold his ring to the Sultan of Spectran.

Go to the island northwest of Terfin and ask the Sultan of Spectran for the Ethereal Ring.  He tells you you can have it if you can enter the vault.

Go up and fight the Stone Harpy.  Take the key from its body and use it to open the vault and take the Ring.

Return to Penumbra and she will enchant the ring.

Go north from Moonglow to Dagger Isle and enter the Dungeon Deceit.  Enter through the second entrance north of the first.

When the road forks, go right and walk through the wall at the end.

Pull the switch to open the gate further on.

Continue south and then right after the locked door and walk through the wall again at the end.

Go north and use the Unlock spell to open the doors to the Tetrahedron Generator.

Put the Ethereal Ring on you finger (where gloves go, not in you hand like a weapon) and approach the generator.  Cast Destroy Trap to stop the lightning attacks.

Enter the Tetrahedron and defeat the enemy inside.  You may need to use a Glass Sword to defeat him.  Double-click on the prism to destroy the Tetrahedron Generator.  Pick up the prism at you feet.  You will need this later in the game.


Dungeon Despise --  The Sphere Generator continued

Return to Nicodimus in Empath Abbey and he will enchant your hourglass.

Return to the Sphere Generator.  With the enchanted hourglass you can walk right through the moongate and enter the generator.

Enter the moongates in this order to reach the prism: red, blue, red.  Take the prism and the Sphere Generator will be destroyed.  In destroying the Sphere Generator, all the moongates in Britainia will also be destroyed and you can no longer return home to Earth.  The Time Lord will tell you about the third and final generator that must be destroyed.  This generator transmits the Guardian’s voice to all his followers.  Pick up the sphere prism before you leave.

Get the transmuter from Rudyom in Cove if you haven’t already done so.


Fellowship Retreat -- The Cube Generator

Go to the Fellowship retreat island between Serpent’s Hold and Terfin.  Use you magic carpet to get over the walls.

Enter the cave behind the retreat and approach the Cube Generator.  As you get close you hear a painful noise.  Quickly retreat and use the hourglass to talk to the Time Lord.  He tells you you need special helmets made of Caddellite to get past it and that you should talk to Brion in Moonglow to find this substance.

Go to the observatory in the northeast corner of Moonglow and ask Brion about Caddellite.  He tells you that it can only be found on an island in the North East Sea.

Fly north from Moonglow, past Dagger Isle, to the island of Ambrosia (on your map it is hidden under the compass).  Land in the valley in the middle of the island and enter the cave to the north.

Go southwest to the room with the Hydra.  Double-click on the centre of the north wall to open a secret door to the Hydra.

As you enter, the hydra will start talking to you.  It will not let you have the Caddellite and will attack you.  Defeat it and continue south.

Grab several pieces of the Caddellite, one for each member of the party.

Go to Minoc and ask Zorn the blacksmith to make helmets from the Caddellite.

Return to the Cube Generator and equip the helmets.  It is a good idea to have some curing potions (red) before you enter the Generator.

The interior of the Cube Generator is a maze full of deadly traps.  By stepping in certain places, bridges will appear and disappear between platforms.  To make it through the maze, do the following:

Go up then all the way to the left.

Walk up to the new bridge and then left.

Go back to this second new bridge and continue going up until you can go no further.

Go back down, then left, then all the way up the left side of the maze.

Go right, down, right, up.

Go back left, then up to the top.

Quickly go back up, left, up, then right, down, right, up, right, and then down the right side.

Cross the two bridges to the left, then back right, down, right, up.

Go down, left, down, left and you will be back at the beginning.

Go left, up, up and a bridge will appear to the right.

Go back down, right, up, up, left and a bridge will appear that leads to the prism.

Talk to Sintag and ask him for the key to Hook’s lair.

Go to the House of Games and use the key to enter the tunnel behind it.

In the tunnel you will find Hook’s abode.  Use a lockpick to open the chest.  Inside you will see Hook’s death list and that Lord British and yourself are next on the list.  There is also a key in the chest.  Take it for it is the key to the Isle of the Avatar.


Isle of the Avatar – The Black Gate

Fly to the south end of the Isle of the Avatar in the southeast corner of Britainia and use Hook’s key to enter the shrine.

Go to the top-left corner of the Guardian’s throne room and walk into the tapestry with the blue footprints below it.  Behind is a switch to open the north doors.

Walk through the wall in the southwest corner and take the key from the backpack.

Sit on the throne again and then walk through the wall in the northeast corner.

Defeat the lich and use the key to open the door to the Throne of Virtue.  Sit on the throne.

Sit on the Throne of Many Changes one more time.

Put the three prisms in their proper pedestals around the Black Gate to remove the barrier.  The Guardian will offer you a choice.  Go through the Gate and return home, leaving Britainia to the Guardian, or destroy the gate and never be able to return home to Earth.

Pick up the bucket and use it on the well to fill it up.  Dump the water into the trough.  Do this three times to fill up the trough.
