Welcome to the first true dungeon-the onyx cave. Collect remedy, iron nugget, poison ring and a life potion before you move on to the next area to your right. There look for these items- two iron nuggets and two tonics. You will see the characters talking again as you proceed. Here you will find a chest containing wooden shield. Equip it on whoever you find it suitable. Keep equipping and upgrading your armors and weapons as and when you find them. You will find two iron nuggets and a tonic in this area. The gate to your right cannot be accessed now; you need the onyx key to open it. Proceed north. Here you will come across your first puzzle…well as a footnote-this game has lots of wonderful puzzles to keep you busy. Before you get busy with the puzzle find an iron nugget, remedy and reset spell from the chest. If you mess up in any puzzle from now onwards you can use the reset spell from Noah’s skill to reset the puzzle to its original condition and play again. The scribbling on the wall has the instructions for the puzzle. To solve it
- From the row in front of you, move the rock to your extreme left up. Similarly move the rock on your extreme right up.
- Walk up to the left side of the middle rock and move it to your right.
- The middle rock in the upper row is accessible now. Move it up two spaces and then to your left. The entrance is unblocked now.
Before going to the next scene collect the tonic and the fire spell (red glowing ball) to your right. This area has bomb, ether and poison ring. There is also a skeleton lying with a message. Head to the room on your right. From there collect tonic and two iron nuggets. Open the chests and equip the iron sword on Noah, iron spear on Downey, Saloman bow on Jean (Jean can use both staff and bow. It depends on you whether you want to use her for fighting physically or casting spells). Exit this area and go to the path to your left. Another conversation follows. This room has a life potion, iron nugget and a leather mail from the chest. Proceed left. Here you will find tent, tonic, iron nugget, remedy and a hide cap from the chest. Go southwards first. You are presented with another puzzle.
To solve this:
- Go right and then down in the narrow gap between rocks.
- Move the rock on your right to the right. The path to the gold is freed. Collect 150 gp from the ground.
- Use Noah’s ‘reset’ spell and follow step 1.
- Move the rock on your left two spaces to the left.
- Stand where the rock was and move the rock just below you one space down. Move into the space where it was.
- Push the rock on your left to the left.
- Walk into the space where you have one rock on the left and two on your right. Refer the screen shot.
- Move the rock on your left to the left. Walk up to the space where this rock was.
- Now push the rock just below you down. Walk onto the space it occupied.
- Move the rock on your left to the left. Walk onto the space it occupied and then go down.
- Move the rock on your right two spaces to the right. The path is unblocked.
Proceed south and follow the conversation. This area has ether and tonic. The chest has onyx key. Go back to the room with the save point and follow the northern path. Here you will face another rock puzzle.
To solve it:
- Move the rock to your extreme left up. Move the middle rock up. Walk onto the space where latter had occupied.
- Move the rock on your left to the left. Walk onto the space where it was and then walk up one space.
- Push the rock on your right two spaces to the right. Stand there and face up.
- Push the rock just above you up by one space.
- Walk two spaces to your left and face up. Push the rock just above you up. Walk onto the space where it was and face left. The arrangement of rocks would look like this
- Move the rock to your right to the right. Now stand in the space where it was and walk up one space. See the screenshot.
- Move the rock on your right to the right and the rock on your left to the left.
- Walk one space left and face up. Push the rock just above you up.
- Walk one space right and face up. Push the rock just above you up. Walk onto its space.
- Push the rock on your left to the left. The path is unblocked. Move onto the next screen.
This area has iron nugget and tonic. The man is a merchant. You can buy and sell items. Sell all items that you wont use again (previous weapons, armors) and also which are only for trade purposes (e.g. apple, cherry, jelly, etc) but don’t sell onyx and iron nuggets, you will find out why later.
Proceed right. This room has two iron nuggets and onyx. The blue glowing ball is a spell-buster charge. Pick it up.
Go back to the room with the save point. Heal up and save and head to the left.
This room has three spells and onyx. Pick them up. Go back to the area where there was a skeleton lying.
Go up north path. It is the hall of treasure; get the life potion, remedy, onyx and two tonics here. If you’ve killed all the enemies in this dungeon then the hall of treasures will yield three chests- two with bonus xp and one with shadowbane.
Go back to the area where you couldn’t unlock the gate. Use the onyx key to open it. Explore the next area. This area will yield tent and life potion. Heal up and save before you confront the yellow smoke.
Now confront the boss-lamia. Kill it. The unblocked area will yield onyx and 250 gp.
Move onto the next screen and follow the conversation.
