                      the hardest treasure to find in the game, as it randomly
                      appears in the swamp cave. Don't get your hopes up on
                      getting it. It's in the Grave of Garinham, there's
                      a chest that gives 120 gold, and about 1/12 times it'll
                      give you this item instead. You can sell it for 1250

                      in a cave, so you'll have to find it. You can also

- Fighter's Ring -    Increases some stat, no one really quite knows what the

- Gwaelin's Love -    When you rescue the princess, she gives you this item.
                      It shows where you are. It also tells you when you're

- Flame Sword -     A sword that costs a lot, and it a tad bit stronger than

Shields in the Game

- Small Shield -   A rectangular shield made from cow and goat hide. Light
                   and easy to handle, it is the most widely used shield in

- Large Shield -   Cast from iron, this shield has delicate engraved design
                   on its front. Of course, this durable shield has far more
                   protective power than that of the small shield.
                   - Costs: 800G (Defense: 10) -

- Silver Shield -  The most expensive item in the game, the Silver Shield
                   has about as much defense as the best armor in the game.
                   You should save up the money and purchase this thing
                   before the final fight. The amount of money it costs
                   isn't really that much at the end of the game. It might
                   take you 2 hours max.
                   - Costs: 14800G (Defense: 25) -

Armor in the Game:

- Clothes -         Made of thick cloth, the don't really protect you too much
                    from the enemy. Even so, it's better than nothing and it
                    does lessen the damage inflicted by an enemy a little bit.
                    - Costs: 20G (Defense: 2) -

- Leather Armor -   Sewn together from the fragments of soft leather, it is
                    useful in combat. It's light and easy to move about it,
                    and it gives you more protection then the cloths
                    - Costs: 70G (Defense: 4) -

- Chain Mail -      Made from light metallic thread sewn together. Light and
                    easy to move about in, it will considerably lessen damage
                    that the enemy can inflict on you
                    - Costs: 300G (Defense: 10) -

- Half Plate -      A strong piece of armor made form beaten out iron panels.
                    Although you can't move about so fast, it really
                    protects you from the enemy's blows. (Ohh..blows...)
                    - Costs: 1000G (Defense: 16) -

- Full Plate -      Made from specially fabricated steel, this is really
                    durable armor. It'll protect you from almost all enemy
                    - Costs: 3000G (Defense: 24) -

- Magic Armor -     No different from the Full Plate, other than it allows
                    the wearer to gain 1 HP back per step. Pass this one up
                    if you can and just stick to Erdrick's Armor.
                    - Costs: 7700G (Defense: 24) -

- Erdrick's Armor - Strongest armor in the game by far. You need this to
                    take on the Dragonlord and live. You won't get very
                    far without it. That or gain a billion levels. Also, it
                    allows wearer to gain 2 HP back per step, and walking
                    over those swamps won't hurt you anymore.
                    - Costs:  0G (Defense: 28) -

              - Costs: 4 MP -

- Hurt -      A spell you will use for fighting. When you chant it, little

              spell inflicts 2-10 damage on the enemy.
              - Costs: 2 MP -

- Radiant-    This spell will light up caves when you find yourself groping
              around in the dark (OOHH! GROPING! kinky) Brighter than a fiery
              torch, you'll be able to see far ahead.
              - Costs: 3 MP -

- Stopspell - Of the various monsters you'll come across in your travels some
              will attack you with spells. When that happens, chant this spell.

              - Costs: 6 MP -

- Return -    When you've traveled too far away from home or you find that

              high in the sky and return.
              - Costs: 8 MP -

- Repel -     This spell will cloak you in a magical cure that protects you
              from monster attacks. However, it won't work in foul smelling
              caves. And just like Fairy Water, you can't use it against
              monsters that are stronger than you.
              - Costs: 2 MP -

- Healmore -  Some of the Dragonlord's henchmen are so strong that they
              inflict more than 30 points of damage in a single attack, in
              which case "Heal" or healing herbs won't work in time. This is
              a more power version of  "heal" and will restore 75-100 HP
              points each time you use it.
              - Costs: 10 -

- Hurtmore -  This is a more powerful version of "Hurt". Legend has it that
              those who chant that spell can summon up lightning and attack
              the enemy with it. When you've chanted the magic spell,
              knife-like lightning is fired form your fingertips and destroys
              almost all enemies.
              - Costs: 5 MP -
