================================

  1. INTRODUCTION

    1-1. THE GAME ITSELF AND THE SERIES

Might and Magic began inauspiciously on the Apple IIe. It wasn't really a 
very good game. A bit less dull than Wizardry and decidedly bigger and more 
forgiving, new players still found it hard to get a handle. People moved 
about in 3-d view in a bunch of 16x16 dungeons and really didn't know what 
the ultimate object was. Surely they didn't realize there were lots of ways 
to flat out trap themselves. The final solution was unsatisfying, the puzzles 
were obscure, and there were far too many ways to get killed. Plus there just 
weren't enough hints.

But Might and Magic II was a different story. It followed the same formula: 5 
towns, with dungeons, several castles, and a bunch of sub-quests. But here 
the sub-quests led to the bigger ones. Diligent exploration of a cavern gave 
valuable hints. And you had many ways to improve. Maybe too many--each time I 
play I find a new way to cheat. But there were more interesting items and 
puzzles, and castles had multiple levels. Also the game had a symmetrical 
theme based on the four elements: one town for each, based in one corner of 
the world. The game was also politer--less beeping and more explanation. And 
the humor bit even worked this time!

This guide will attempt to acquaint the player with various levels of 
cheating in order to solve the game. It will also diagram towns, item lists, 
and dungeons in detail, including the hellish lower levels of castle 
dungeons. It's inspired by Kelly Flewin's well organized script guides, but I 
wanted to give an idea of what the dialogues were for and just a general idea 
of which places were worth bothering with for someone who wanted to zip 
through the game. Or for someone who liked this game and wanted to know 
everything...did they need to bother with dungeon X?

    1-2. APPLE VERSION, RUNNING

I recommend the AppleWin emulator by Tom Charlesworth even over any PC 
versions. The emulator's fantastic and with recently added save states you 
can save your position, technically, outside the inns in town. Then go to 
ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net/pub/images/games/rpg and download the .nib.gz 
files. You should be able to find a gunzip utility--the ancient ones require 
you to rename the files to mm2b.gz, and then you have to rename mm2b to 
mm2b.nib, but once you've done that you can back up the files(just in case) 
and be off and running. You can set the game to go fast and even ignore the 
usual disk coughing that indicated how slow the Apple was.

    1-3. PC VERSION, RUNNING

You can probably buy an early MM collection on eBay, and yeah, I bet there 
are pirated versions on the net. But pirated or not, you'll find 
dosbox(http://dosbox.sourceforge.net) a useful wrapper over which to run MM2. 
Just go to the directory where MM2.EXE is and run that. Now you can play 
without a full screen and have this helpful walkthrough in one window and the 
game in the other!

  2. CONTROLS AND METRICS

    2-1. WHAT TO LEARN

ctrl-A is critical during the game for easy battles you know you can plow 
through. On the Apple emulator you can crank up the speed.

Pushing C from the main screen doesn't cast a spell--you need to push the 
player number for that. However you should set the delay to 0 and the 
adventure type to inconspicuous or you will wind up fighting groups of 60 
orcs, which flee when you approach. Time wasting.

    2-2. BACKING UP TRICK

Often events in MM2 only occur if you are facing a certain way. The game 
anticipates that you'll be going forward and you will turn. But if you back 
up and turn, you avoid the direction-based event. One simple example of this 
is if you follow the path to the stairs down to the Middlegate dungeon. 
Retreat to the square where you would descend. Nothing happens until you turn 
around. This later caused me to miss some Yellow and Red messages, so it is 
double-edged. It also doesn't help you avoid general encounters, but if 
there's something special to be said or a Y/N that causes you to get into 
combat or retreat, you can bypass that.

    2-3. DISK SWAPPING TRICK

This trick is based on the fact that the game assigns each player a slot. 
Let's say that you have a party in slots 1-6 and you make a backup disk B of 
disk A. Create a new player on disk A and he will go in slot 7. Give him an 
item and disperse your party, except for him, at an inn on disk A. Now leave 
the inn, switch disk A for disk B, and re-enter the inn. You'll see your old 
party, with the items they gave to #7. The game will only have saved #7 on 
disk B. It has saved the old characters without items on disk A, but you can 
replace them by switching items from 7 to 1-6 and saving to disk B, removing 
7 from the party, exiting, replacing disk B with disk A, and reentering.

You can use this trick to beef up your gold or gems as well as to duplicate 
hard to find, valuable items.

150-174         | 18               | 15     | 15     |

225-249         | 21               | 18     | 18     |
----------------+------------------+--------+--------+

Note that if you have someone with 13 intelligence and you make him a 
sorcerer and half orc you can get 11-12. It's a dumb thing to do, but there 
you go. The game also records negative speed/endurance bonuses.

From 60 up was determined through save states and comparing speed/armor class 
or intelligence/spell points. It jibes with totals in Might and Magic III.

Similar spell point formulas work for archers and paladins, too, only just 
after they
are promoted, max points = points per level * (level - 6).  Looks like a bug 
but makes sense, since fighter/spellcasters start late. (That was how MM1 
calculated it too.)

You'll want to put high priority on finding an item that can raise your 
intelligence/personality.  If you raise your endurance, you can get a few hit 
points next time you gain a level.  Since spell points are a DIRECT MULTIPLE 
of your level and another factor, one item can make your spellcaster quite a 
bit more powerful. There's also a place in the 

Here is the max. hit points/level for classes, if their endurance is 11-12(no 
bonus):
Knights 12
Paladins 10
Archers 10
Clerics 8
Sorcerors 6
Robbers 8
Barbarians 15
Ninjas 10

So a sorceror with endurance 20 would be capable of 6(basic)+4(bonus)=10 
points per level if he trained at Atlantium.  By the way, it's a good idea to 
do so ASAP. I've pushed for level 5 but level 9 is still pretty good. Just 
use teleports and cross your fingers.

Also, robbers start out with 30% thieving, and ninjas start out with 10%.  
They each gain a percentage point of ability per level, although 100% 
thieving doesn't guarantee that you'll be safe against a chest trap. Not even 
the maximum 255% does that.

For other statistics:  extra attacks are determined as follows.  
(level)/x where x is a number dependent on class
4 - Knight, Paladin, Barbarian
5 - Archer, Robber, Ninja
7 - Cleric
10- Sorcerer

  3. STRATEGY

    3-1. WHAT SORT OF PARTY?

I find the two new sorts of classes pretty much useless. Alignment and gender 
don't matter much either, with the exception that you may want, for 
expediency, your paladin and cleric and sorcerer to be the same gender. That 
is because the square where they get their personality bonus teleports you if 
you are not unisex. And it's easier to get there with a sorcerer.

Still the best way to go about creating characters is to have as many as 
possible at 19. I actually recommend against starting with an attribute of 
20+, because it's possible to improve an attribute 10 at a time up to a 
maximum of 59. If someone starts with 20, they wind up with 50. With a score 
of 59, you can make a character a hero and get a stat to 60, which gets an 
extra bonus point.

For starters, everyone should have good speed, because that lets them strike 
first. Good endurance is also nice, but not necessary if you use the 
endurance cheat early and often. But it makes things much easier at the 
beginning. Might and accuracy are nice for fighting types, but I really 
recommend 19 personality for clerics/paladins and 19 intelligence for 
archers/sorcerers. You can do this by getting 19 initially or getting 18 and 
a raise.

You don't even have to be terribly lucky for this. Just note that races can 
lower stats for some of your initial character's rolls and raise others. And 
also make liberal use of exchanging to flip stats if one is abnormally low. 
For instance, clerics and paladins don't need intelligence. That also means a 
good race for a paladin might be one that loses intelligence. Archers and 
sorcerers don't need personality. Spellcasting types don't need might and 
accuracy so much, but it seems everyone can use luck.

Character races affect the final attributes as well. There are some signs 
that say "no humans" or "elves only" so you can't really explore everywhere 
with any party. Humans can be pretty much anything but if you want some 
variety I've listed good matches below. Note that the net stat change is zero 
except for Half-Orcs, who would not make good magic users but would be good 
fighters.

1. Humans: no change
2. Elves: Str- Int+ End- Acc+ (good sorcerers/archers)
3. Dwarves: Int- End+ Spe- Luc+ (good paladin/cleric)
4. Gnomes: Spe- Acc- Luc++
5. Half-Orcs: Str+ Int- Per- End+ Luc-(good 
knights/barbarians/ninjas/robbers)

My order generally is

1. Kni 2. Pal 3. Arc 4. Cle 5. Rob 6. Sor

Why? Because the knight and paladin have the most protection. The archer can 
fire away when your first two are engaged. The robber and sorcerer have 
missile capability, too, but the cleric does not. So you'll want the cleric, 
who also has good armor, to fight up front. It's one more weapon when you're 
short on magic. Although if you have a tough fight you may want to kick the 
cleric to the back to cast heal spells.

    3-2. SPELLS

There are two types of spells in MM2: cleric and sorcerer. Each spell has a 
pure caster class and a fighter-magic user class.

In general, "true" magic users like clerics and sorcerors gain spell 
level x when they reach level 2x-1.

Fighter-magic users(paladins and archers) gain spell level x at level 
2x+5.  Fighter-magic users can only get to spell level 7 naturally but 
there's a fountain that can boost them to 9.

      3-2-2. WHERE TO FIND THEM

First note that if you learn a spell before you have the spell level, you've 
still got it. And hirelings have all spells.

I've pretty much listed the spells in order of accessibility.

        3-2-2-1. CLERICAL

On advancement:
Middlegate temple: 1-1    $10 | 1-2    $10 | 1-6   $1000
Sandsobar temple:  2-2   $250 | 2-5   $300 | 2-7    $200
Tundara temple:    3-1   $400 | 3-5   $100 | 4-4    $500
Vulcania temple:   4-6  $2000 | 5-5  $3000 | 7-2  $10000
Atlantium temple:  8-3 $20000 | 9-3 $50000 | 9-4 $100000

To get C3-6, go to C2(11,1)--just north of Middlegate, turn east and take the 
ferry and go south a few squares and west one at the mountain.
For C9-2, go to C1(5,5)and face south to see Holy Word written on a tree. 
It's actually rather easy to pick up, once you know where it is.
To get C2-3, buy Red Hot Wolf Nipple Chips in Tundara. Then visit C3(1,9) for 
this esoteric spell.

The encasement spells are found in a handy square:
A1 (1,14) A4 (1,1) E4 (14,1) E1 (14,14)

The transmutation spells are found in a handy square, too. But there may be 
encounters along the way.
A1 (8,8) C4-2 air
A4 (8,8) C6-5 water
E4 (8,8) C6-1 earth
E1 (8,8) C8-2 fire

C5-3 is after you defeat 15 Crazed Natives. You may want to soften them up 
with a spell like Moon Ray before getting this spell, which isn't terribly 
useful anyway. But getting the complete list is fun.

C9-1 is in Druid's Cave (15,14) after a mini-quest. See the druid at (15,14) 
first. Defeat The Horvath at (1,5) and return. Teleporting makes it trivial.

        3-2-2-2. SORCERERS

Middlegate guild: 1-1    $10 | 1-3  $1000 | 1-7     $50 | 2-3    $100
Sandsobar guild:  2-7   $400 | 3-1   $200 | 3-4   $1000 | 4-1    $500
Tundara guild:    4-2   $600 | 4-3  $2000 | 5-1   $3000 | 5-3   $3000
Vulcania guild:   6-1  $5000 | 6-3  $5000 | 6-5   $5000 | 7-2  $25000
Atlantium guild:  8-2 $50000 | 8-3 $50000 | 9-1 $100000 | 9-2 $100000

Nordon's Quest gives you S2-1, visiting him at (10,2) and going to the 
basement (0,7) for the goblet and returning.

S2-6 is in Corak's Cave, behind the fake walls that are also partially 
shielded by the stairs-up dialogue.

S3-6 is in Sandsobar (7,4), where you can buy it for 100 gold.

S9-4 is in the Gemmaker's Cave (3,3). The price is 10 years onto everyone's 
age. The precise location is behind an etherealize spell.

S5-2 is in C1 (1,8). You must have eaten the Devils Food Brownie and you need 
to face east too.

S7-1 is at A2(15,11) in the mountains. It's a difficult fight with the Mist 
Rider because...well, he casts Dancing Sword and your party learns from him.

S9-3 is in D1(5,6). You must wait until day 93 to cast C2-3 Nature's Gate to 
make it here. If you get good at the game it may be more expedient just to 
hang around the Dragon's Dominion and then go to Hillstone Dungeon level 2 
and buy all the spells.

      3-2-3. WHAT YOU'LL USE

In general spells that cost X per level should be dished out cautiously 
especially since you only have a fixed amount of spell points per level. So 
fixed-cost spells are at a premium, unless you have some really powerful 
monsters.

        3-2-3-1. CLERICS

        3-2-3-2. SORCERERS
C1-1 turned out to be useful in the early orc/goblin fights to get Nordon's 
Goblet.
C1-2 may be useful if you get caught resting, but if you really needed the 
sleep, Instant Keep should have been cast. Only low level monsters cast 
sleep, so they're not much of a threat as things go on.
C1-3 is a nice throwaway spell you might as well cast if there's nobody to 
heal.
C1-4 is the only spell to use early on. Cast it before opening traps or 
during combat. It's also useful against a fighter who's doing 200 points of 
damage on one party member per round--a better heal spell makes no 
difference.
C1-5 is the first light spell you'll get, and though it's superseded by C3-5 
it works well.
C1-6 is a good high level cure. Though not as efficient or predictable per 
spell point as C1-4 or C2-1, it ensures that in combat, a fighter will take 
more time to be knocked down.
C1-7 is great if you know some undeads you can consistently beat up for 
experience. You get credit for each one you turn.

C2-1 is microscopically less efficient than C1-4 but your cleric shouldn't 
run out of spell points in battle unless he power-cures.
C2-2 is great against monsters with a ton of hit points. If you only have one 
spell, see who might get a couple of attacks from it. You can cast it on a 
spellcaster, but that can drain their spells even quicker for by-level 
spells.
C2-3 helps you get another spell if you use it on Nature's Day. Otherwise it 
goes somewhere random in C2. It's not terribly useful otherwise, but it's 
cheaper than $2 million to get all spells.
C2-4 is a useful offensive spell that goes well against the undead and magic 
users. It's hard to resist.
C2-5 is a great spell which is unlike its sorcerers' counterparts NOT per-
level. It protects (20+level #)%. But even 100% doesn't leave you safe.
C2-6 is worth a shot against really good spellcasters. It binds your 
characters well.
C2-7 is one of those fun spells to throw out there and see if it sticks. It 
can save the cost of a heal spell several times over if cast early on.

C3-1 hits out at monsters in the back ranks for constant damage. It's okay.
C3-2 is largely useless since you usually won't get food stolen, and it's 
cheap enough to buy.
C3-3 is a spell number you'll wind up memorizing.
C3-4 is worth a spin if you've got nothing else to do and a lot of enemies 
are in melee.
C3-5 is good in dark areas that suck out your light, although you can also 
rely on auto map if you are clever.
C3-6 while not strictly necessary helps you cut across certain areas instead 
of teleporting. It helped shrink the world in my mind.

C4-1 is proportionally weaker than C3-1(33 vs 25 damage, but for fewer 
monsters) but take into account monster types/resistance.
C4-2 is necessary to get into the plane of air.
C4-3 is another spell you'll remember because you characters will get 
diseased a lot.
C4-4 can restore alignment and save you money at the temple. Having an 
alignment shift is not all bad--your character can try different items with 
his new temporary alignment. And if you change the alignment back the item is 
still equipped.
C4-5 gets you out of a real mess and sends you to the surface--where it 
works. You can combine it with Lloyd's Beacon to keep looking into a dungeon. 
Or to keep hitting a certain treasure square.

C5-1 might be handy, but I never used those spells despite their being easy 
to pick up.
C5-2 is a good offensive spell against magic resistant types.
C5-3 isn't worth the cost.
C5-4 is a step up from the old web. It's more permanent.
C5-5 beats having to cast a bunch of spells on one person. And it gets rid of 
paralysis etc--even, out of combat, one's own silence.

C6-1 is necessary to get into the Earth plane.
C6-2 may not be necessary but it's a nice resource to have if your players 
get older than you want them to. Just save before casting as it can backfire.
C6-3 turns stone to flesh.
C6-4 is one I haven't tried, but it might be fun
C6-5, water transmutation, is necessary to get into the water plane.

C7-1 is a bit more powerful than 6-4, but I don't know how often it works.
C7-2 is a good flat-fee spell.
C7-3 is my favorite clerics' offensive spell. It takes away spell points from 
opponents and gives them to you. This is great against a dragon that just 
breathed--your opponents won't be able to kill you--and the spell works on 
just about anything. I've beaten so many breathing monsters hitting ctrl-a x 
5 + C-7-3.
C7-4 raise dead isn't worth it as if you got a guy killed in combat you're 
probably either toast or you goofed. Just go to the healers after. Unless 
it's a critical fight and you forgot to save.

C8-1 is the final encasement spell I never tried.
C8-2 allows you into the plane of fire
C8-3 is best early in combat--and flat fee too.
C8-4 lets you move between towns. This is actually significantly handier than 
fly because you don't have to flip between disk E and B for 
Vulcania/Sandsobar. And you don't have to be above ground either.

C9-1 is a heal-all spell but it ages your cleric.
C9-2 is well worth the 1 year it adds to your caster's age. There's always 
rejuvenation.
C9-3 is...well, leave it to the clerics to de-eradicate. Scoop up the dough 
from the Dragons Dominion
C9-4 is confusing because I've never had a cursed item.

Sorcerers
S1-1 overlaps with C1-2 but these may come in handy if you're attacked during 
rest.
S1-2 is nice for checking an item's charges if you want to sell it and buy it 
back(i.e. Teleport Orb)
S1-3 is great for nailing a tough monster.
S1-4 picks off goblins well early on.
S1-5--well, I save these spell points for C3-5.
S1-6 shows your location. But you had automap anyway.
S1-7 puts weak monsters to sleep. This is handy against goblins and orcs but 
it gets a bit useless later.

S2-1 is a nice spell, but it simply costs too much. Drink from the fountain 
of clairvoyance or donate to temples instead.
S2-2 is a bread and butter spell early on. It can hit fire-based creatures 
and undeads S1-4 can't.
S2-3--ehh, why when you have this guide?
S2-4 can save you the hassle of an encounter at a crossroads. But it 
sometimes fails. Still, handy.
S2-5 saves major hit points in lava filled areas(E1, Vulcania Dungeon, 
Gemmaker's Cave.)
S2-6 is one of the most useful spells in the game for convenience, though I 
didn't see the point of it at first. When you cast it you have the option of 
returning to a set location or making a new set location. Let's say there's a 
square in a dungeon that has a special item that reloads. But that dungeon's 
tough to get out of. Enter the dungeon, get to the square, and cast Lloyd's 
Beacon to get out. An even more extreme example is with teleport spells--one 
Lloyd's Beacon can do what several teleport spells would have taken. However, 
if two different people cast Lloyd's Beacon, they don't get separate 
locations(this was rectified in MM3.)
S2-7 is a good spell but it costs too much. If you want that protection, just 
donate to temples.

S3-1 is a nice spell, but level based.
S3-2 is extremely useful. It sends you to a relatively safe square on the map 
in any of the twenty sectors. I've listed what's where below.
     A     B      C      D      E
1  13,3  14,3    3,3    5,3    1,3
2   8,7  13,7    8,4    4,4    3,7(e2=oasis)
3  14,14 15,3   14,3   13,3    0,0
4  14,10 13,15   3,14  13,10   3,10
Often you can chain two fly spells together, for instance, if you go to A4 
and drink from the pool and then fly to take on a tough combat, you can get a 
big jump.
S3-3 helps in tough melee fights.
S3-4 is an early lifesaver against monsters who don't want to be damaged any 
other way.
S3-5 is a fair enough spell if you have nothing else. It may pin down some 
spellcasters.
S3-6 is like S2-1--nice, but it costs too much. Better to donate at a temple 
for it.

S4-1 can nail a fire-based monster prety well.
S4-2 I haven't really used.
S4-3 is great against monsters skulking in back.
S4-4 prevents surprise attacks, which is nice if you're on the run. With S4-6 
you have a way out of pretty much anything.
S4-5 is handy if you're fighting, say, Castle Guards.
S4-6 is an eponymous spell for just getting out of a mess.

S5-1 is great for those spellcasters lagging.
S5-2 never seems to kill the ones you really need to.
S5-3 is nice outside, because sand isn't an element to be resisted.
S5-4 may be critical after completing an important quest. Don't take chances.
S5-5 is very useful in areas where it's not banned. Just remember to face in 
the direction you want to go. With some exact calculation you can even drop 
in on a spot where you know you want to go. It can make a laughingstock of 
some heavily guarded areas as well.

S6-1 is a great spell for taking out low-hit-point monsters that just won't 
be damaged any way else(i.e. immune to weapons.)
S6-2 seems a bit silly--don't you want to get rid of which monsters you can? 
And in some cases it is counterproductive. But if you know a monster gives 
good treasure and you're about to kill it, you might want to save it.
S6-3 is a bit too expensive unless you have to nail some flame-based enemies.
S6-4 could be handy, as long as you save first. And of course for stuff like 
teleport orbs it's cheaper to sell and buy back.
S6-5 is okay against a single monster.

S7-1 is a hard to avoid spell, great against a bunch of tough monsters.
S7-2 doesn't work on special items, but it's very useful to couple with 
Enchant Item to make two of a valuable item, i.e. golden plate mail + 7 being 
improved is nice
S7-3 isn't as effective as teleport and can cost more. I don't know any 
instances where it works and teleport doesn't. But you have a keystroke or 
two less to type.
S7-4 isn't something I've used widely.

S8-1 can take out a big bad monster nicely. It's certainly effective against 
my parties.
S8-2 is okay against higher level enemies
S8-3 is great against low level, hard to hit enemies
S8-4 is best--and cheap and necessary--against melee fighters that just drain 
a lot, such as Endless Knights.

S9-1 works well against you and for you.
S9-2 is an improvement on S8-2 for just two more gems, so why not use it.
S9-3 is the best you can get to take out enemies that only go down to magic.
S9-4 enchants an item and you can really concentrate on this. If you can hold 
off on spellcasting before you rest, you can boost your own armor class. You 
may be able to find +30 items in doomsday boxes, but on the other hand, if 
you can get an item that improves an attribute, S9-4 works great to give it 
charges. If that attribute is intelligence you get a reciprocal effect. I've 
combined S9-4 with the disk swap trick to get +20 emerald rings, which are 
nice.

    3-3. SKILLS

      3-3-1. WHERE TO FIND THEM

Interestingly, there are 15 "sellers" with three in each town. The most 
critical to the game are in Middlegate. Tundara contains some good intangible 
ones, and Atlantium's Linguist is useful for information.

Skills are most useful after you've improved a skill to just below the 60 
limit from one of the places where you can get +10 of it. Then if you're at 
55-59, getting a +5 in that skill will tip you up one more. For that reason, 
I think it's best to give a robber pathfinder/mountaineer, along with an 
archer and paladin getting one of each of pathfinder and mountaineer. Then 
you can give your players skills as they need. Your sorcerer can use 
cartographer, your cleric crusader, and your knight merchant. That leaves a 
skill open for everyone. You could even just make a bunch of people soldiers 
for some extra hit points.

Auto mapper:  Otto Mapper, (0,15) Middlegate, 10 gold
Mountaineering:  Sir Edmund Hilary, (3,12) Middlegate, 2000 gold
Pathfinder:  Track and Trail, (1,9) Middlegate, 1000 gold

Athlete:  The Olympic Trial, (6,2) Atlantium, 500 gold(+5 speed)
Heroism:  Hippomenes + Atalanta, (9,2) Atlantium, 1000 gold(+1 in all 
stats)
Linguist:  Odysseus'[sic] Tongue, (8,4) Atlantium, 500 gold(+5 
intelligence, can read glyphs)

Crusader:  Saracen's Denial, (2,14) Tundara, 250 gold
Merchant:  International Market, (5,13) Tundara, 1000 gold
Navigator:  Colombus's[sic] Sextant, (8,13) Tundara, 750 gold

Soldier:  Sergeant Pain School, Vulcania (0,3), 500 gold(+5 endurance)
Gladiator:  Disembowlments R Us, Vulcania (3,9), 500 gold(+5 strength)
Arms Master:  Profiency Expert[sic], Vulcania (15,3), 500 gold(+5 
accuracy)

Gambler: Sandy Dunes, Sandsobar (3,0), x gold(+5 luck)
Diplomacy: Embassy, Sandsobar (3,4), x gold(+5 personality)
Pickpocket: Sly's Opportunities, Sandsobar (0,5), x gold(+5 thievery)

You can gain or lose thievery:
Thievery:  Rinaldo Jr., (0,12) under Sandsobar, 700 gold(+10 thievery) 
(behind some ninjas)
Thievery:  Maxwell, (13,9) under Sandsobar, 250 gold(-5 thievery)[AVOID THIS]
I've been able to enlist Rinaldo Jr.'s services several times. Maybe it's 
that I went to see Maxwell afterwards. I haven't experimented enough. In any 
case, it's worth it to visit Rinaldo Jr.
THE ONES ABOVE CAN OCCUR ANY NUMBER OF TIMES.

      3-3-2. WHAT THEY DO

Two party members with pathfinder allows you to go through all forests.
Two with mountaineer allows you to go over any mountain.
These combined let you go anywhere in the outside once you have the walk on 
water spell.
Cartographer lets you auto map.
If anyone with these skills is unconscious or dead, these skills won't work
Everything else gives +5 in some attribute, except Heroism.

      3-3-3. WHICH TO USE

Clerics can use diplomacy, as can Paladins.
Sorcerers can use linguist, as can archers.
Endurance is good for anyone you want to give a small HP boost to.
If you want to detoxify a person after performing Lord Peabody's necessary 
quest, then you may. Queen Lamanda doesn't need crusaders.

    3-4. HIRELINGS

      3-4-1. OVERVIEW TABLE

GARC=Gender/Alignment/Race/Class.

There are 20 males, 3 females, and 1 neutered. There are 8 of each alignment 
and 3 of each class, except 2 paladins and 4 archers.

      3-4-2. WHERE AND HOW TO FIND THEM

In large part, NPC's at the top of the list are easier to find than those at 
the bottom. For most fights, go to the Atlantium fountain and use skill 
potions to take out the enemies--or even make them flee. If that doesn't 
work, try again later.

* Sir Hyron and Drog are at (0,15) under Middlegate. You need to have solved 
Nordon's quest and had Nordonna ask for your help. Technically you can jump 
over all but one fight in your way to get to them.
* H K Phooey is in Sandsobar, if you go to the inn and order Chop Suey and 
exit by the door.
* Thund R and Aeriel are in Vulcania, after you buy Troll Liver from the inn 
there. There's a fight(6 old misers, 6 cripples) and they introduce 
themselves.
* Big Bootay and Cleogotcha are in Atlantium's jail. You must go through two 
fights to get to them. The first is random and the second features four giant 
ogres--a good one to use skill potions for.
* Harry Kiri and No Name are in the Vulcania dungeon (1,14). There are a lot 
of fights if you walk through the Vulcania cavern(and do have levitation 
ready to go.) But you can just teleport to the correct square.
* Gertrude and Rat Fink are at (15,10) in Tundara, at the end of a long anti-
magic corridor. It's easier to teleport in from one square to the north than 
to work your way around and fight the Snowbeast.
* Friar Fly and Dark Mage are imprisoned in Hillstone Castle at (8,4). You 
should actually be able to fake out any castle guards you find by giving your 
#1 player all the skill potion--up to level 30 or so. The guards will just 
run.
* Red Duke and Dead Eye are being held captive by Bozorc the Orc at D2(11,1). 
Skill potion here, along with continually casting lightning bolt at the front 
four until Bozorc goes down(he's with a carnage spirit and 248 orcs,) should 
wipe the enemies out.
* Nakazawa and Sherman are among some Crazed Natives at B4(10,1), who can 
actually kill you if you are not careful.
* Sir Kill and Jed I are in Sarakin's Mine at (7,2/3)??. Many undead monsters 
guard them, and you should get your cleric good enough speed. Then you blast 
the tough ones(which are most of them) with Holy Word.
* Holey Moley and Slick Pick are in Dawn's Mist Bog D4(3,7) at (4,11). This 
is the toughest couple of NPC's to pick up.
* Mr Wizard is actually pretty easy to pick up if you approach from the south 
at E2(1,14). From the north you must fight a lich lord. From the south, a 
great beetle.

Hirelings only take your gold when they rest. So it's possible to be able to 
use a hireling for his spells and then ditch him.

      3-4-3. WHO TO USE AND WHEN

    3-5. GROSS CHEATS

Fight the cuisinart, leave sector A-2, and come back. Be sure to save after a 
few tries until you get really good or you have visited the dragon's cave, 
and make sure you heal after each round. Once your paladin gets spells this 
should be no problem. Also don't open a box if you risk getting killed. Leave 
it after your first combat.

    3-6. SHOP COMPARISONS

As for general pricing guidelines,

Training current level * town index * 50
1=middlegate, 2=Tundara/Sandsobar, 4=Vulcania, 5=Atlantium. You get almost 
double the hit points in Atlantium as Middlegate. Worth the dough.
Healing current level * town index * 10 * (10 if dead, 100 if eradicated)
  So go to Middlegate for this if you're hard up.

Note: someone sent me a mail about the special item bonus patterns a while 
ago. But my computer crashed, and I lost the memo. I'd like to thank them, 
and if they see this FAQ somehow I'd love to give credit more specifically 
for their help. I had forgotten the formula but remembered the general 
pattern...anyway, the cycle is every thirty days, more or less, and it's 
tabled below

 D + |  D + |  D + |  D + |  D + |  D + |
-----+------+------+------+------+------+
 1 1 |  6 1 | 11 1 | 16 1 | 21 1 | 26 1 |
 2 0 |  7 0 | 12 0 | 17 0 | 22 0 | 27 0 |
 3 1 |  8 1 | 13 1 | 18 1 | 23 1 | 28 1 |
 4 2 |  9 2 | 14 3 | 19 4 | 24 5 | 29 5 |
 5 0 | 10 0 | 15 0 | 20 1 | 25 0 | 30 * |

On day 30, you get +5, 60 gets +6, 90 gets +7, 120 gets +8, 150 gets +9, and 
180 gets +12.

    3-7. ITEM LISTS

MM2 is much more logical than its predecessor. The "plus" items can be 
increased a lot. There are also some items that increase certain attributes 
and also can be given magic charges. They may also be made 
of certain materials, increasing them even more. Finally, there are no cursed 
items. Yay!

Although I have not verified *every* item by hand, the disk information has 
given me some pretty clear patterns so that I am able to identify what the 
items do. This is a complete list of everything--"good only," etc. attributes 
are assigned at random for powerful items found after combat. However, for 
pretty much all such strong items, they are given a random alignment, good, 
evil or neutral.

On the Apple there is a bug where the item ID displays the spell number over 
"good only" when you ask the blacksmith to identify an item If "o" shows 
through, that is the o from "neutral only." Otherwise you're a bit stuck. 
It's not such an impediment, though, as if there's a really good item, you 
can change your characters in the good/evil/neutral alignment pools. Or you 
can find a lower charged one and use the enchant item spell a bunch.

Ledger
"Classes" = who can use the item
"Helps" = what it augments(attribute or resistance)
"Amt" = the amount it helps(points or percentage points)
"Spell" = the spell it casts when you use it.  (C or S) (level)-(number)
"Price" = the price you would pay for it if the store sold it and you weren't 
a merchant.  Cut in half for merchant sell/buy prices, cut in four for 
ordinary selling price.
AC/DMG = armor class bonus for protective items, damage(i.e. 1-x) for 
weapons.

Note:  You do get treasure/experience if monsters frenzy/explode but not if 
they flee. This means that if you only beat up a bunch of weak monsters, 
you'll get weak treasure. Also, people who flee during combat do not get 
experience. But their share is not forfeited.
Unconscious people get experience, but stoned/dead ones don't.
Monsters who summon friends double the "+x monsters."  For instance, if there 
are 6 woodsmen not in the first 10 monsters and monsters are summoned, that 
leaves 12 woodsmen not in the first ten. There can never be more than 255 
monsters, so if there are >122 monsters in back, more can't be summoned. 
There's only one summon friends per fight.

In combat there may be some luck with how many monsters are in the attacking 
zone. Usually the fewer the better unless there is a spellcaster waiting in 
back.

Monsters I hate--not necessarily powerful, but ultimately deadly, include:
Leprechauns(steal gems)
Phase Spirits(drain magic, impossible to hit)
Any sort of golems
Shamen(paralyze spell effective on very good groups)
Endless Knights

Note the list shows that Sheltem's apparently weaker than many other big 
monsters. But I haven't been able to read all the bytes yet.

    3-9. LEVEL LISTS

Table of experience points needed for next level.

For the levels below 70, I divide classes into two groups, A and B.
Classes in A: Barbarian, Knight, Robber, and Cleric.
Classes in B: Paladin, Archer, Ninja and Sorceror.
In general A needs 25% less experience to get to a level than B.
Here is a list of levels and experience needed for each class(in 
thousands):

Differences between levels double, but less frequently as levels 
increase.
Otherwise, they stay the same.

  4. DETAILED WALKTHROUGH

    4-1. MIDDLEGATE

You may want to strip the other party's items first. This will give you 200 
gold, and that can be used to buy some immediate armor. You don't have to 
pinch too many pennies, but I don't advise buying any armor that's too 
expensive. It will get exchanged. So 3 helms, 4 small shields, a padded 
armor, and a sling(robber) should serve you well. If you don't choose to 
follow my fight formula, this is a good start.

But I've decided on a bit of a trick--buy a +1 staff, +1 crossbow and +1 
blowpipe. Give the staff to your archer and the missile weapons to your 
robber and sorcerer. Now you have an extra couple of attacks, and they are 
magic. You're probably going to get hit anyway at first.

The best first fight I've found would be the skeletons behind Nordon. In fact 
you should visit him: 2N 4E 3S W and accept the quest--worry about completing 
it later. The skeletons are behind the door to the north. It may take some 
unlocking, but once you do, you can have your cleric cast 1-7, turn undead, 
to kill most of them. Have your sorcerer hit them with the spells you can. Be 
sure to be healed up--or at least have one player with lots of hit points--
before you search for the treasure. You'll also need to unlock the door from 
the other side. If you enter the dungeon(S and W) or go back to the inn and 
return, you get to fight the skeletons again.

With turn undead the main risk is, in fact, that you will set off the door 
trap. The best way around this is to buy a thief's pick at the armory. You 
may have to rest off the effects of setting off a trap a lot at first, but I 
think things should progress quickly enough. Each trip gets ~$500 and with 
this money I recommend, in order of priority, magic herbs for your knight and 
robber--maybe even your archer and paladin too. Also three green tickets for 
your sorcerer for later. Use heal spells liberally. The first level to gain 
is the riskiest.

But it doesn't take too long. After three such trips your knight, cleric and 
robber should have gained a level. Bring them in for training, because when 
your cleric gets to level 2, the turn undead spell is really deadly against 
the skeletons. Everything's easier. And the traps are less damaging.

I've repeated the fight with the skeleton eight times until I got my sorcerer 
to level 3(8*500=4000.) Here's a good place to save your game. In the 
meantime, if you feel as though you have some extra cash, see Otto Mapper in 
the NW corner for cartographer skill, get membership in the Mage Guild, and 
buy spells for your cleric and sorcerer. You can hold off on S 2-3 as it 
gives the same information as in this FAQ and is the most expensive of the 
lot.

At this point you can go poke around other towns. There won't be too many 
random combats, and if you look at section 3-6 you can find the sort of 
things you'll want to afford. The fewer items you have to buy and sell back 
for a loss, the quicker you can make money--perhaps even make enough money to 
get the merchant skill. Try to use hand-me-downs as much as possible until 
then. In some cases, such as shields, you can buy the best there is

For instance you can give your knight and paladin splint and chain mail. Then 
when you can afford plate armor, you can give that to the paladin and hand 
off the chain to your archer. Another plate, and your cleric gets the splint. 
Ring and scale aren't the best any class can do, so don't buy them.

The great shield +1 from Atlantium is a real bargain--if you can win a few 
fights, pile up $1500, and buy these without any other shields, you're off to 
a great start. Navigating the portals is tricky at first but they're pretty 
close together. Middlegate's is left when you exit the inn's door. Sandsobar, 
go west and to the top and west. Tundara, go from behind the inn to behind 
the bar next door. Vulcania, retreat, turn, 2 forward, turn, 2 forward. 
Atlantium back one-way to Middlegate, go straight forward.

By the time you have this down it may be more convenient to cast the fly 
spell. But knowing what you want at Atlantium can save you gold for better 
training, spells and the colored keys early on.

    4-2. AND UNDER AND BACK AND SO ON...

At level 3 you're about ready to take on the underground. It may be a bit 
tricky, and you can wait until your knight is level 4, but with accurate play 
you should be able to do the first bit under Middlegate.

Cast a light spell. Go 3W 1N. Then face west and jump. This vaults you over a 
very annoying combat. Then go W into a wall, S and W to a combat. It's an 
easy one. Search for treasure and jump west. Unlock the door. Be healed for 
the next combat behind the door; you'll want to kill the inept wizard and 
focus on the orcs, and once you do, the goblet is 1S1W.

Retracing your steps isn't too tough. You can probably even flee from the 
goblins if you forget to jump over them or don't have the spell points to. Go 
back to Nordon and you've got the spell Eagle Eye and a nice chunk of 
experience on the side. He'll tell you to see Nordonna. Do so. You can then 
go back downstairs, but you'll have a slightly different path.

Jump over the first combat as before, but then head north. There'll be a sign 
near the end of the passage. You'll need to hit the first combat, but then 
you can move west a square and jump twice to get over two combats. Sir Hyron 
and Drog are here. Jump back over the combats, or just run into one and flee. 
Then visit Nordonna. Sir Hyron and Drog are your first two hirelings.

Now the Apple has a loophole where you can go back to Nordon and keep solving 
his quest, which gets easier each time. It also gets you 1000 gold, too. Once 
you get to level 5--or even before, if you're really brave--you may want to 
look around other towns. But you can also pile up gold here if you want to. 
In fact, if you get 5K gold then there is a good cheat I recommend in 4-4. 
You just have to get to Atlantium. But for now I will diagram the ways to get 
from town to town.

Via the portals:

Middlegate(0,5) 10 gp <-> Sandsobar(6,1) 20 gp
Sandsobar(4,14) 50 gp <-> Tundara (6,11) 10 gp
Tundara(6,9) 50 gp <-> Vulcania(6,3) 30 gp
Vulcania(8,3) 100 gp <-> Atlantium(3,0) 50 gp
Atlantium(12,0) 25 gp -> Middlegate(0,5)

That last trip IS one-way. It's worth noting that the portals are pretty well 
aligned with each other. Here's how a round trip works:

--from the Middlegate portal, exit in Sandsobar, go 1S 1W, N a bunch, 1W and 
1N.
--from the Tundara portal you can go 1S through a secret door. 1E 1N 1E 2S 1W 
1S 1W 1N. Both Tundara's portals are a bit secluded.
--from the Vulcania portal 1S 2E 1N. They're both clustered around the 
inhabited area, so this is easy.
--In Atlantium you can go all the way east to complete your journey's loop.

Another way to get around--costs spell points and not gold--is to exit the 
town you're in and cast a fly spell.
Via the S3-2(fly) spell:
Middlegate is at C2 and 1W1S
Atlantium is at A4 and 1/2??W
Tundara is at A1 and 1/2??W
Vulcania is at E1 and 1E1N??
Sandsobar is at E4 and 2E??

Either way, you should quickly get comfortable with zapping around the towns. 
Once you've got ~6000 gold you can come back here to train for Pathfinder and 
Mountaineer for your Robber and someone else. That is the best use of money--
the robber is best for pathfinder/mountaineer because you will be bringing 
him on class specific quests later on. Don't worry too much about armor as 
you'll mostly be avoiding fights you can't win.

Other things to do with money include donating at each of the temples(this 
gets you a Fe Farthing, which you use in the NE Middlegate fountain when 
prompted for a Castle Key.) and buying cleric spells at the temples and mage 
spells at the guilds--this implies that buying membership at the mage guilds 
is also good. Pick up the spare keys if you have any extra money. And also, 
once you're at level five, if you are ready for the next level but don't have 
the gold to spend on training at Atlantuim, wait until you do. The difference 
is about six hit points per level.

    4-3. SANDSOBAR

You can buy three yellow tickets here once you've gotten through with the 
three green fights, as well as some armor. In general you might as well check 
for bonus magic items in the shops.

The Splint Mail here is good hand-me-down for your cleric, and the two Chain 
Mails will be good for your archer and robber. But the large shields are the 
best investment off the bat.

Order the Chop Suey at the bar and you can get H K Phooey as a NPC. Also, you 
can find Wizard Eye at (7,4). Look for a sign called "The Beggar's Gift 
facine east in the center.

The SE slums are an interesting place that hold some information and a 
dungeon, though it might be too tough for you now. When you enter, go 1E and 
turn left and backpedal. This will avoid a conversation where you must fight 
to get by. Turn left and go through the secret wall.

Rinaldo the Master Thief is at (0,12) here. With a few skill potions you can 
probably get by, but the fights aren't easy. Once you do, you can cast 
Lloyd's Beacon to set a place and keep returning and retreating. Rinaldo will 
teach your thief a few times(be sure to remove the pick to get the maximum 
natural percent) and you won't need to worry much about doors blowing up 
again. Here's my path.

W 3S 4W N 3W(defeat Arachnoids with magic) W N W N 2E 2N W(through secret 
door) to encounter. N 2W 3N E 2N(another encounter) 2W 3S and see Rinaldo.

    4-4. TUNDARA

There's a good armory here. The Helm+1 is a nice cheap upgrade, and skill 
potion will become a staple of fights later on where you just want more 
attacks.

This town has a wealth of skill-selling shops at the top. The only strictly 
necessaryr one is Crusader(cleric,) but merchant(knight) is nice to pick up, 
as is Navigator(robber.) With a knight as merchant, it's easiest for him to 
sell his items.

The merchant skill quickly pays for itself, because you're charged the same 
you pay for items--before you were charged 4x and could sell for x. Now you 
are charged 2x and can sell for 2x. This is handy with future big-ticket 
purchases. And Navigator is a matter of convenience.

With Merchant skill you can go to Atlantium and get a teleport orb at a 
discount(2500, makes up for paying 1000 for merchant.) It has 25 uses but you 
can cast S 1-2 to sense when it's getting low and sell it and buy it back. 
With this you can really clean up some areas quickly.

      4-4-1. TUNDARA: A DISHONEST ASIDE

Assuming you bought the teleport orb, you can now pull out a few Emerald 
Rings by cheating a bit. Go east from the inn and face south at the exit. Use 
the teleport orb to go 1S. Turn north and Gertrude and Rat Fink will go to 
the inn. Back up and you can pry an Emerald Ring from the dead person's 
hands. Back up again and you'll run into the Snowbeastx10, which you can 
always flee from. Maybe he's not sure which copy of himself should run after 
you.

You're back near the inn now. So enter it, hire Gertrude or Rat Fink, and 
give one of them the Emerald Ring. Dismiss him/her. Now go back to the exit, 
face south, etc. You can get six emerald rings this way. I don't play with 
hirelings except during the quests where I have to, and the emerald rings 
aren't pricey enough, but this works out well enough: 15 AC across the board.

    4-5. VULCANIA

Vulcania's armory has a large shield +1 and a Padded armor +1--why not? The 
+2 Helms aren't necessarily worth it as there are +4 helms in Atlantium. The 
rest of the stores are mostly north past the teleportals and to the east and 
up. But there are a lot of wild areas here.

Things are starting to get pricey here, so don't worry about affording them. 
Later on you'll want to buy some red tickets, but be sure to have completed 
the green and yellow fights in the three arenas first. Still, before you 
leave, you may want to buy some specialty food(??) to get Aerial and Thund R 
as NPCs. They're useless, but if you have a mania for collecting NPC's, there 
you go.

    4-6. ATLANTIUM

You don't want to get caught here in some building with a set encounter. But 
there are some very nice places to visit. The first is the armory, at the 
north end. The +3 flail is great for your priest, and a +2 Flamberge for the 
special-of-the-day is good. The Great Shield +1 is a great bargain. But the 
Teleport Orb is a main priority, as it opens all sorts of doors. Plus, once 
you buy one with a merchant, you can sell it and buy it back and get a 
recharge for free.

You may also need some skill potion to get past the Giant Ogres and to the 
hirelings behind them in the jail just west of the armory--there's a fight 
before them, so you can't boost all stats to 100 to fight them. The colosseum 
in the center is doable with the green ticket at first, but don't push 
things.

You can also exit Atlantium and push the back-arrow a few times, then turn 
around and drink from the pool and go fly and fight somewhere. The castles 
are a good place: north from flying to C1 or west/south from flying to E4. 
You can also use this pool, with the skill potions, to win fights in the 
arenas. The dungeons under the caverns aren't too useful yet so don't worry 
too much about them.

      4-6-1. C2/C1: CORAK'S CAVERN AND WALK ON WATER AND...

C2 has a few immediately useful spells you can get without really running 
into any problems. N and go east, taking the ferry over the water. S3 and 
then go west. C3-6, Walk on Water, is well worth just 50 gold pieces.

If you have the forestry skill it's a pretty easy trip to Corak's. The 
purpose of this side trip is to get S2-6, Lloyd's Beacon, which makes many 
things a lot easier. You can cast Lloyd's Beacon to find easy return access 
to a tight area. Some such areas allow you to improve your intelligence or 
personality or whatever. But you will probably want to bring a teleport orb 
along in any case.

After leaving Corak's Cave go back to the main path and head north on it. 
When a sign says Woodhaven to the north, go 2N 2E and face south. Now you 
have C9-2, Holy Word. It's not to be used lightly, especially until you get 
regenerative powers, but it can end some previously very nasty fights in a 
flash.

    4-7. ATTRIBUTE FISHING EXPEDITIONS, PLUS SOME GOLD

These aren't really in the spirit of the game, so I understand if you don't 
want to participate. But at some point you may find you need to bulk up your 
attributes to win a big fight. This is the quickest, although it is a bit 
sly. If you want to play straight and narrow you can keep drinking at the 
Atlantium fountain and fighting castle guards. Otherwise you could solve the 
quest for Mark's Keys a few times, or something.

I've also written how to get the Pegasus's gold in subsection 8.

      4-7-1. VULCANIA CAVERN: ENDURANCE

Go to Vulcania. Cast Lloyd's Beacon at the stairs down to the Vulcania 
Cavern(set.) Then face south, use the teleport orb(3) and do it again(5) and 
go north. Listen to the singing for +10 endurance. Use Lloyd's Beacon. Listen 
to the giant 4 times. This makes for mega hit points.

      4-7-2. DRUIDS CAVE: MIGHT

To get here you may need to walk around a combat--so bathe in Atlantum. The 
cave is at (1,6) which is 13W3N of where you fly to in C3.

This dungeon looks tough, because of the Earth Snares, but with a teleport 
orb this is a lot easier. If you've got surface, it's best to use it here, 
although you can also cast Lloyd's Beacon at the entrance to the Druid's 
Cave. Otherwise you have some teleporting to do. Because the way down is not 
the way up. So without Lloyd you need to teleport 3N, 7S, 7E and surface. 
Then descend and ascend again. And again. And again. Your characters should 
be able to do insane amounts of damage now.

Without a teleport orb or the teleport spell you need to be able to withstand 
40 damage before you use Lloyd's Beacon to get out. Because an Earth Snare 
guards the spinach. You can also use the teleport orb a lot, as you'll need 4 
trips and you get exactly 24 uses before it breaks--then you can sell it and 
buy it back in Atlantium. But you have a lot of keys to get exactly right.

      4-7-3. ATLANTIUM CAVERN: INTELLIGENCE

Go under Atlantium--the entrance to the dungeon is in Atlantium's NW. You can 
cast Lloyd's Beacon(set) before you descend, but only one teleport is 
necessary. Face north and teleport 7 squares. Then move 3 squares east. Read 
at the statue. You can retreat 3 west and face south and teleport again. Thus 
you avoid all the nasty fights you'd otherwise have to go through.

If you want to do it honestly, go west and then north at the first turn. 
There'll be some thieves guarding a corner. Look for the secret door in the 
NE, to the east. Then go to the statue and back.

      4-7-4. NOMADIC RIFT: SPEED

This is a bit tricky conventionally because, even after you flee a combat, 
you still have to jump east a few times or fight through a few combats.

Fly to A4 for the fountain, fly to E3, go 5N 6E. Enter the rift. You may need 
some luck to avoid an earthquake. Jump west 7 times and you'll hit one 
combat. Cast Lloyd's Beacon at (1, 11). You can get the treasure to the left 
at (0, 11) and (0, 13) to make up for the cost of your teleport orb. From (0, 
13) teleport 2N. Now there are leprechauns to the east. You can take your 
chance fleeing from them or you can just hop over them with Lloyd's Beacon 
or, if your cleric's at level 7, you can cast surface. The combat at (14,7) 
may be the easiest, so you might not have to jump over that. But you will 
probably want to get back up to 100 at the A4 fountain for each fight.

Another solution is to cast a teleport 1 square east and 7 north, which lands 
you in the room. Then 1 west and 7 south, or Lloyd's Beacon if you cast it 
over the cave, gets you out. Again, four of these and you should be set.

      4-7-5. B1 CAVERN: PERSONALITY

Personality isn't as critical as it seems, because many of the best Cleric 
spells aren't based on points per level. Which is a good thing, because you 
have a tough combat just after you receive the boost. You can try to risk 
running from it, but it's quicker and safer just to be able to whomp 'em. But 
it's still nice to inflate your stats in as many ways as possible.

You actually won't need teleport orbs to navigate blizzards or snowdrifts 
here. Go to Tundara and temporarily disband all party members of the opposite 
sex of your paladin and cleric. You can just exit, go east to B1(4,3) and go 
straight north to enter the cavern. Visit the correct room four times. You 
don't even have to leave the dungeon. While you're in the area, look ahead to 
4-7-8 if you want some gold, too.

There are a few good side items too--see the detail section for this dungeon 
to see which fights are easiest and have decent items. Your path from the 
Atlantium Fountain to here could be unobstructed too, and there aren't many 
magic monsters here, making it a matter of holding down ctrl-a at times. You 
can also get 2000 gold+10000 experience for each player from a fight with 
goblins, who can't hit anyone with armor class over 20.

It's possible to organize things in town so that you drink from the fountain 
west of Atlantium, fly to Tundara, and take the party members who need 
personality, plus others of the same gender, to the caverns(someone may need 
navigator skills to get through the tundra, or you may want to teleport, 
since otherwise you'll get lost randomly.) Bring some hirelings of the right 
gender along if you want--preferably Mr Wizard, who can take care of things 
with a quick spell. Along the way you might also like to get skill potions at 
the armory.

      4-7-6. DAWN'S MIST BOG: LUCK

Skill potions are an even better idea for this fight than the last one. 
Getting to Dawn's is an unpleasant affair. It's in D4, but if you fly there 
you'll need a couple of teleports or some fancy stepping to avoid nasty 
combats. I go south to (13,7) and west and teleport 9 west and turn up to see 
the sign. In the bog, mountains house lightning bugs, which are nasty, so 
being exact is important.

Inside Dawn's you will want to go north to the wall, east and take the first 
door east as you go north. The Lucky Dogs you have to fight to get the luck 
here are rather tough, too. Bring everything you have--if you have Gold 
items, be sure to remove them after you win. You have to walk to (12,7) as 
Dawn's is very anti-magic. Don't worry about being worthy. Everyone is.

      4-7-7. PINEHURST LEVEL 2: ACCURACY

This one is for later reference only, because it is not easy to get to, and 
the monsters are too tough right now anyway. Pinehurst is in A3. Just fly 
there and follow the road south. The full rundown is in 10-3-2.

      4-7-8. MEENU'S GOLD

While you can just use a teleport to go north from (9,3) you can also try to 
work your way through the minor blizzard-maze. The solution? Start at (8,3) 
and go 5N W 2N 2E S. You can fly out of this whole mess or retrace your 
steps. The blizzards cost 20 damage each time you hit them and pretty much 
surround Meenu. Search and you'll find enough gold for a spell at Atlantium. 
Or enough to buy pretty much all the other spells.

    4-8. THE TRIPLE CROWN PROCESSIONS

First note that it may be most time-saving, after buying three tickets and 
saving the game, to start at the Atlantium arena and portal to Middlegate 
then Sandsobar. One advantage of starting at Atlantium is that you can get a 
feel for if you're in over your head. If you can't win no matter how many 
skill potions you drink(and yes, if you want, you can waste two per front-
line player) you might want to try other ways to build up experience. But 
I've actually found the experience you get from one triple crown quest makes 
it a good deal easier to complete the next one.

One thing to watch out for: if you lose a fight, you lose your ticket. Also, 
after winning a fight, don't turn left or right. If you have a ticket in your 
possession, the game will note that you're on the fight square and you have a 
ticket and--poof--a ticket wasted and a chance to undo the fight you just won 
with an unlucky draw!

If you are accelerating your characters through the arena fights then you may 
need a lucky draw. But it's best to make your own luck with skill potions, or 
by trying a few times. 

There are four colors for keys and tickets.  For each color you must win 
in all three arenas listed below and unlock the bishop of that colored 
battle with the key(which you buy in the town).

Black(Atlantium) >> Red(Vulcania) >> Yellow(Sandsobar) >> 
Green(Middlegate)

Thus the "greater" ticket you have the tougher your encounter will be in the 
Arena(Middlegate), Monster Bowl(Sandsobar) or Colosseum(Atlantium). These are 
listed in descending order of difficulty, and the ticket is more important 
than the venue in determining monster difficulty. The gold totals for winning 
reflect this.

You receive gold for winning at each venue. You also receive experience for 
rescuing each bishop. The bonus is much greater if you have won the triple 
crown before you rescued him. Here's a grid of each quest. You should be able 
to locate everything pretty clearly.

Color |MGate|Ssbar|Atl'm|Key Loc+$       |Bishop           Exp TripCrown
------+-----+-----+-----+----------------+------------------------------
Black |20000|30000|50000|(3,10)Atl'm  50K| Luxus     14,14 10k 200k
Red   |7000 |10000|15000|(0,8) Vulca 2500| Hillstone 11,4   8k 100k
Yellow|2000 |3000 |5000 |(6,2) Sands   1K| Pinehurst 13,3   5k  50k
Green |200  |500  |1500 |(1,8) MGate  500| Woodhaven 10,6   3k  10k

The castles shouldn't be too bad to negotiate, but you may have a few fights 
with castle guards. You can probably bluff your way through castle guards by 
having someone at level 20 or more(they will run away) or you can see 4-2 
about getting into castles with the Castle Key to get rid of one such combat. 
By the time you get to the red key, castle guards shouldn't be too bad, but 
why not be prepared?

I do recommend winning the triple crowns before rescuing the bishops. The 
experience sums are not inconsiderable.

For Woodhaven you have nobody blocking you. Fly to C1, go straight north, 
enter the castle, take the right door, and 2N E 4N E 3S. That was easy.

For Pinehurst there's a potential random fight ahead so I might recommend 
having a teleport orb. Fly to A2 and face south and follow the road. Enter 
the castle. If you want to teleport, go 2W and face south. Teleport 5 squares 
south so the y-coordinate is 3 where you'll end up. Face north and you'll get 
the bishop of yellow battle. Cast surface, or use the teleport orb to 
reverse.

The non-teleport way is to go west through the double doors and south. Jump 
after you get through the door, over one of the combats, and go east into 
another. Win it and the bishop is behind the door. Jump to leave too.

Hillstone is actually a bit easier, although the arena combats are tougher. 
Take the left door for one encounter with castle guards. 2S E 2S E S for an 
encounter. E 2S and another encounter. 3S E 2N. The third bishop.

Luxus's bishop is the easiest to reach, but do try to win the combats first. 
N, E to (13,1) and N all the way to the top--take the last door east. No 
encounters. You don't even have to suffer through a jester's orc jokes.

    4-9. FUN WAYS TO GET GOLD AND ITEMS

We haven't explored around much yet, and sticking to the sectors around 
Middlegate is the safest way to get gold and experience. But there are more 
active ones. At some point your quest for more experience will slow down, and 
here are ways to get around things.

      4-9-1. THE ATLANTIUM/A4 FOUNTAIN

You can use the fountain west of Atlantium and then fly to various places. A 
great place for gold is a castle. Even if you have the castle key, one of the 
two starting doors in Woodhaven or Pinehurst has a fight with castle guards. 
It's not huge experience, but you get 15000 gold and random good items. There 
may be other fights to try, and many other sections are based on this. You 
can use skill potions on top of this.

      4-9-2. THE GEMMAKER'S CAVE

This is a nice place with no fixed combats. You can find gems all over but 
the real deal is if you levitate through the lava pit in the center cave. 
You'll have to levitate to get from Tundara to there. And you can go back and 
in to get copies of items like the +10 flaming sword.

      4-9-3. PREFERRED QUESTS

I went through with Lord Hoardall's quest(Woodhaven) and then Lord 
Slayer's...got a level from each before the class quests. Which themselves 
might be easier.

      4-9-4. SINGLE COMBATS--FAIR AND UNFAIR

The Cat from Hell is a fair combat. You can cast Holy Word to get rid of the 
240 cat corpses following it around, and you'll need to keep up the rest of 
the party with Moon Ray. The total experience is 10,024,000. If you survive.

But even better is the Cuisinart at A2(1,8). He's an odd fellow with a 
tendency to either attack someone or, more rarely, frenzy. If he frenzies, 
and one of your party members resists, you're home free splitting 20,000,000 
experience. And here's the hook. You can go off A2, 2W to A1, and come back 
and beat him up again. Continuously. There may be a temptation to try one 
fight too many or even to open that treasure box when you should cast a fly 
spell back, but resist it(oh yeah. He gives Doomsday boxes some times, too.)

Everybody I talked to who played and loved this game mentioned the poor 
Cuisinart. I remember feeling almost sad when I beat him the normal way. But 
he works great until level 70 or so when you have to fight him 5 whole times 
to get the next level!

      4-9-5. DRAGON'S DOMINION

    4-10. IMPROVEMENTS, PART TWO

    4-11. THE CLASS QUESTS

There are some low-blow ways to get experience but one of my favorites is 
using the Cuisinart, which I discuss in the next section. If you don't want 
to do that, you might want to start on the class specific quests in section 
6.

This requires you picking up some NPC's. There's more detail on it in 3-4-2 
and section 6. The Knight Quest is a good place to start, as it will 
immediately pump up both your knight and your robber, and you don't need your 
level to be too high to do it. Before pumping your robber's levels up you may 
want to visit Rinaldo under Sandsobar several times so you reach the maximum 
before you get the 10-level boost.

  6. CLASS SPECIFIC QUEST DETAILS

In order to solve the game, you must have solved a class specific quest, 
where you can only have that class and robbers in your party. Then you must 
visit Mount Farview. In terms of difficulty I would rank the quests

Knight<Barbarian<Archer<Paladin<Ninja<Sorcerer<Cleric

...which is the explanation for why I didn't order these alphabetically. 
Naturally you can and should skip the ones for classes not in your party, but 
once you've solved MM2 it's fun to come back to.

I like to create a dummy robber character when I start these quests. He and 
my regular robber go along on all of them and are both 
pathfinders/mountaineers, so my party can go wherever, whenever. It's only 
5000 gold and well worth the convenience.

I get the most mails about people asking how to do the Cleric's Quest. Five 
of these are merely a matter of winning a fight with the right magic items, 
or the right combination of players. The last two require you to visit 
certain odd places and maybe find an item or two, and there are still some 
nasty combats.

First I recommend getting at least two robber NPC's before continuing. Rat 
Fink(Tundara, behind the wall) and Fumbler(A3 8,1--on the island guarded by 
White Knights, goes to Atlantium) work well. You can probably dispose of the 
White Knights drinking from the fountain west of Atlantium and using skill 
potions as before.

Aeriel or Dark Mage is also a good NPC to have along for convenience. 
Although they can't be there for the last part of the class specific quests, 
they can cast fly spells(well, Aerial will need minimal experience) to get 
you close to where you need to be. This is useful because you can fly to 
Atlantium, drink from the pool mentioned above and fly again. Alternatively 
you can just buy transport to Atlantium via the portals and save at the 
inns(i.e. Atlantium after drinking, and the town nearest your quest) to avoid 
random encounters, but that can get tedious.

One other way to boost your party before a big fight is to donate at a 
temple. This helps especially with the Frost Dragon, who breathes. Middlegate 
is cheapest, but then you have to walk around a bit before getting to 
Atlantium. Blessings are random enough, though, that I'd donate at Middlegate 
and run the gauntlet to Atlantium--or fly there.

With regard to coordinating NPC's for the class specific quests, I recommend 
bringing them all to one town as you get them and taking them out of the 
party once you do. It makes future tasks easier.

Of course, after you complete these quests you still need to go back to Mt 
Farview at D2(7,0) and face N/S for your reward. Your character will get a + 
after his name. And a nice reward.

    6-1. ARCHER

Baron Wilfrey may have a powerful individual strike, but thankfully he 
doesn't have anything like lightning bold. So he's a juiced up version of the 
Dread Knight(see 6-4.) If your robbers have ray guns, use them. Get Magic 
Herbs, several, for your weakest players and have them cast heal on whoever 
goes down. You'll still want skill potions for your front line so that you 
can attack Wilfrey's cohorts.

    6-2. BARBARIAN

Brutal Bruno's more of the same if you've figured out how to take down the 
Dread Knight. I just took a bunch of barbarian NPCs and skill potions along, 
flew to C4, and went to the northwest corner. But I would recommend getting 
blessed at the temple before starting off.

    6-3. CLERIC

The cleric quest is the toughest of the lot. You need so many items, and you 
need to do everything right once you have them. First, pool your gems to your 
cleric before adjusting the party. Take all the cleric and robber NPCs that 
you can.

--get the Admit 8 pass from Sandsobar(0,0) if you haven't found one in combat
--go to C1 (5,5) and face south if you haven't. Now you have Holy Word.
--go fight a bunch of ghosts at C1(10,15). Use your cleric with the highest 
speed to wipe them out. You should now have Corak's soul. Spin around in 
place a bit if you don't get it right away.
--get full spell levels at C1 (?,?). Now all hireling clerics, even the 
wimps, have Holy Word.
--you might want to save at Middlegate here in case something goes wrong.
--enter Corak's Cave. It's south of Woodhaven on the path until you are 
forced to turn east, then north. Circle around the main structure to get to 
the gates at (7-8,6). Note that once you give the admit 8 pass, they forget 
you've already handed them one--so they kick you out if you retreat and come 
back. From here on in, things better WORK.
--Holy Word on the first fight beyond the gates at (7-8,5)
--S, E to the wall, S, E to the wall. You should be at (13,3) and someone 
should be glad you have Corak's soul. The barriers to the center will drop.
--Go west. At (7,3) you should go 3S 1E for the final fight.
--Use Holy Word with your first person up. Corak's soul and body are 
reunited. Cast surface to get the heck out of here.

Any aging endured by your cleric can be wiped out by a rejuvenate spell.

    6-4. KNIGHT

Here you must go to Jousters Way and defeat the Dread Knight. First of all: 
getting there. You should have given your robber and a dummy robber 
pathfinder/mountaineer skills(affording this should be no problem. If it 
isn't, you need to get better.) Then you can cut south a few squares and west 
to get here quickly.

One-on-one, he's pretty tough, and without magic items on your part, he'd 
probably beat you up pretty quickly. But you can use magic items. And you 
should, before entering battle. In fact, you should also have decent magic 
items so you can do damage to the Dread Knight. Bring along Rat Fink and 
Fumbler as robbers and Sir Hyron and Flailer as Knights. Put in another 
robber for support if you'd like. He'll be a great hit point bunker in later 
quests. Now buy everyone a couple of magic herbs--you should have enough 
money now that this isn't a problem. If you've found any ray guns along the 
way, that should help too. Give them to your NPC robbers, who should equip 
them and can cast spells across several quests.

The Dread Knight may have some hangers-on that you will want to dispose of 
first. But once you do, you can have most guys attack him and have your 
weakest guys do the healing.

    6-5. NINJA

With enough skill potions you can get the seductresses to flee, leaving only 
Dawn to fight. It's then reduced to a Dread Knight sort of case. See Dawn's 
Cavern for how to find here. You may want to use a teleport orb to get there-
-exit from Sandsobar and follow the path east. Go south, and at D4(13,7) on 
the path, go 1W and cast teleport 9W.

    6-6. PALADIN

You might want to get Red Duke before completing this as well as Sherman. 
They're both behind some reasonably difficult fights. This is a bit riskier 
than other fights as the dragon may breathe. So hack it down first. It helps 
if your paladin has a ton of speed. Again, skill potions can help too. Focus 
on the dragon first--the more you hit it, the less damage its breath does.

    6-7. SORCERER

The only necessary fights here are one in each castle against 3 Iron Wizards. 
S3-4 Lightning Bolt should take them down. But if you go through the wrong 
doors in response to the marginally confusing puzzles, you may have other 
encounters to face, and there's a lot of walking around which may make for 
random combats, too. It's also nontrivial to get to the island.

Sorcerers don't have walk on water, which you may need to get to the Isle of 
Good and Evil with accuracy. There are various solutions to this: if you've 
been there before, you can guess with teleports, as landing in the water 
doesn't really hurt you. Also, you could take along a hireling cleric to cast 
the spell, fly to B3/B4, and dismiss him. Or have a PC character cast it and 
then get rid of him at the inn. Or go to a temple and donate until the 
priests bless you. It's worth it to save the game with spells intact, because 
the random annoying fights will affect you less that way.

The castles of Good and Evil are largely mirror images of each other--you 
have a diagonal heading NE/SW splitting puzzles that consist of which doors 
to walk through. It doesn't matter which castle you complete first. I'll 
refer you to 9-1 and 9-2 for the rest of the solution. There's not a lot of 
fighting unless you make a wrong step, but that is very probable as the 
puzzle directions are rather vague.

  7. MISCELLANEOUS QUESTS

I'm assuming here that you are looking for quests not discussed above in 
detail(i.e. Nordon's or the Triple Crown battle.)

    7-1. NONVIOLENT

Mark's Keys: this is a catch-22 of a puzzle. You don't know Mark's missing 
his keys until you see him, and he'll hang a low-level player. But you don't 
know what to tell the spider in A3 when she asks what he's missing until 
you've seen him. You can wait 'til you're level 20 or so to do things right, 
but by then 10K experience isn't much.

Mark is in C1 (1,1) and the arachnoid is A2 (2,9).

The Gourmet: here you just have to get one player to eat each of three 
entrees/specialties at the bars in each of five towns. You have to kick 
around a bit, and you'll need to cast cure disease for when the food is 
spoiled, but it's a fun quest, and the experience isn't bad at 100000. It 
also clears your ledger of nasty encounters where monsters claim you ate a 
family member and attack you.

In fact the gain per gold piece is better than in Woodhaven level 2 as he 
total cost of the meals is 14280. But that's assuming nobody gets sick.

    7-2. LORDS' QUESTS

The lower quests in the castle are so random that it's not worth worrying 
about them.

Lord Hoardall's(Woodhaven) is the easier of the two quests. If you have the 
map that came with the package you may notice three thin swords buried into 
the map. They are tough to pick out, but if you wander around where they are, 
you'll find some fights. You may not need to fly back to the A4 fountain--
just have a few skill potions ready.

A2 (11,2) has 6 mountain men guarding the Sword of Valor. You can probably 
ctrl-A them if you are level 10+.
D1 (0,8) has the Sword of Nobility. 4 priests guard it and can cast paralyze. 
So have skill potions ready beforehand and strike fatally first.
D4 (14,11) has 6 guardians for the Sword of Honor, 1 square NE of the 
Sandsobar/Hillstone turnoff. Have some skill potions and be healed as they 
breathe gas.

Lord Slayer's(Hillstone) is the tougher of the two. I didn't solve it until 
after I'd gotten through the class specific quests. There's only one monster 
to face, plus some random trivial trailers, but that leader can attack the 
whole party.
D1(10,12) Flying Envoy = 1 Dragon Lord
E2(11,6) Crawling Envoy = 1 Queen Beetle.
E3(5,6) Slithering Envoy = 1 Serpent King. This is the toughest fight and I 
constantly had my cleric casting Moon Ray as this guy can breathe and is 
nastier than the other two.

You get 1000000 experience for clearing this and can even try again and 
repeat the task.

In addition there's another quest from a castle that's not a dungeon. Lord 
Haart(B1 5,5) wants you to find two ancestors.

Spaz Twit:  Year 600 A1(11,3) (phaser)
Long One:  Year 700 E2(5,4) (loincloth)
Reward:  +250000 experience
This does not work on the Apple, because the Long One doesn't exist. It works 
on other OS's, though. Unfortunately the only quest that used something other 
than the year 800 is a bit broken. But Spaz Twit has a cool phaser as weapon.

    7-3. THE CIRCUS

The Circus is actually a very lucrative quest, but I always solve the game 
before I get to them. Still, if you get to day 140, you can head to B2(fly) 
and go 2S W S to visit the circus.

"Childrens laughter, merry music and growls of vicious animals emanate from 
cheerfully striped tents. Game booths line the circus grounds. Play (y/n)?

Pick any one below and you will lose. It doesn't matter. Keep trying 
different games and you will get a cupie doll.

1) Test of Strength
  Your feeble attempt failed./You rang the bell! Win +10 might.
2) Kissing Booth
  You were denied!/You scored!  Win +10 personality
3) Horseshoes
  You missed./You got a ringer!  Win +10 Accuracy.
4) Head Dunk
  You passed out./You survived!  Win +10 endurance.
5) Sack Race
  You fell on your face./You won!  +10 speed.
6) Lucky Dice
  You didn't roll the lucky seven./You rolled a 7!  Win +10 luck!
7) Shell Game
  You picked the wrong shell./Incredible memory! Win +10 intellect.

Once you have the cupie doll, fly to D3 and get to (7,13)--teleport 6W and 
6S--and the old guy will get a Cupie Doll. Then fly to E3 and teleport 6W(0,0 
to 10,15) and 3S and bathe in the pool. You may want to set Lloyd's Beacon 
here to try things again. Since you feel like a winner you can go back to the 
circus(Fly B2) and go 2S W S.

You can also fly to D2 and go 4S 3E 3S. It's quicker than flying to D3 if you 
don't teleport. But basically:

--Fly to B2, lose at the circus, get a cupie doll
--D3(7,13) trade cupie doll
--Lloyd's Beacon to E3(10,12) bathe in pool
--Fly to B2, win. And you can lose right away again.

Given that there are 7 attributes and 10 points per win you need to play 70 
games to pump everyone up. That means 70 trips, or less than three a day, 
maximum. That's very doable, and you may have gotten some +10's along the way 
for your stats. Just save every so often in case an encounter happens. Oh, 
and get rid of stat enhancing secondary skills before starting. Retrieve them 
later. And remove items that do the same, so you get the full bonus before 
re-equipping. Note that if you get a +5 bonus from 100, you get bumped up to 
the next level. And if you have, say, intelligence and ready the two 
Crystal/Quartz skull items from the castle, your sorcerer gets to 135. If the 
items are uncharged.

  8. TOWNS AND BELOW

Though MM2 has automap, it doesn't tell you where one-way or secret doors 
are. Nor does it track special location. So I thought text maps could be very 
useful.

The ledger for each town may vary slightly but the main bits are constant.
|- = walls
v=stairs down
^=stairs up
:=door, may be locked
.=message, noncritical or descriptive
!=message, critical info
@=planned fight
*=unplanned fight
$=treasure

Town specific:
A=armory
S=save game
I=inn
T=temple
+=training
t=teleportal
m=buy into mage guild
M=mage guild

Atlantium is a tough town to find a decent fight in, but the fixed combats 
may work out okay. And in fact avoiding fixed combats works out well for 
getting to the armory. Also, you can bring the green ticket to the arena for 
some quick cash early on and maybe in the yellow. You might not want to do 
anything expensive until you get a merchant. Eight statues here tell you 
where to go for the eight character classes' specific quests. It's a one-way 
trip out via the portals, but going outside is okay as there's a great 
fountain a few squares west. With a few skill potions it might tide you over 
to breaking open the jail to get the NPC's here.

Overview: there are two quests here, to find the hirelings in the NW corner 
and the golden goblet in the west. You can facilitate things with a timely 
jump spell here. Either way you'll have to deal with some moderate combat 
challenge. There is a dark zone in the center and another near-trap at the 
bottom--the only way out of that is to flee. Some walls also have clues that 
may not make sense yet, but you may still want to write them down.

There's no way to avoid the ankle traps if you step on the square, even with 
levitation. Rest before a probable fight. Rinaldo is worth returning to a lot 
at the very beginning. Investing in a teleport orb(E4 N4 and back) will make 
things easy. Now traps won't blow up in your face so much any more. A few 
more clues here, again.

You may want to get the Admit 8 Pass from down here. Easy enough. Teleport 4E 
and then 8S or, more manually, W 4S W 3S 4W jump(S2-4) S 5W.

Tundara is a complicated, obscure town--there's an anti magic zone by the 
Snowbeast area on the east strip. You also have a bunch of shops behind a 
secret door. Stairs to the dungeon are behind another one, and the two 
teleportals are--guess what--hidden behind the save-game and the inn. So if 
you gloss through the map you might not find them.

The temple and mage guild are worth visiting, and you need a crusader to win 
the game. Oh, make a merchant and get sextant skill two--one being a 
convenience with regard to your bottom line and the other WRT hazardous 
travel.

The Freezing Area beyond the secret door is okay for fights, but you can 
probably think bigger. And there are lots of ways to get the Emerald Ring, a 
handy defensive tool. The expected one is to take a hireling along and beat 
the 10 Snowbeasts--first you have to loop through some combats to the lever 
at (15,12) and then you need to come back around and win the fight. Then give 
him the emerald ring and dismiss him. The other is related in the 
walkthrough. It's more simple and elegant. Oh, and it was the one I thought 
of.

A pretty sparse dungeon. It has a few fun clues but the only real action is 
against 200 killer cadavers, who explode, so you better have C9-2 or at least 
C1-7 ready. If you throw a lever you get a few more fixed 
fights. Lots of worthless treasure here. I suppose you could wangle your way 
to some free gold from all the treasures.

The wild area in the north of Vulcania isn't terribly useful, but there are 
some places to visit on the side--left center, get the key. Right center, 
some nice items in the armory. Get the spells at the temple too. Also behind 
one door in the center row you'll find a way to judge your overall 
resistance. This can tell you what a certain item is good for.

It's a quick transit between Tundara and Atlantium, too. The main stuff is 
packed in tightly. Don't worry about going outside except to go to the Gem-
Maker's Cave.

Either you'll want to cast levitate here, because stepping on lava costs 20 
hit points, or you'll want to know where you want to get and use the teleport 
orb to get there. With all the one-way doors and random encounters the non-
magic way, you know which one I'd choose.

The way through should be pretty clear with this map--there's a nuisance of 
getting through the zigzaggy corridor--up/left/up/right with the arrows 
repeatedly will work. Then there are the puzzles where you avoid the X's. The 
idea of the castle is to present a clue at the start of a group of doors and 
then have separate ones before each set of doors and have you work through 
them. They aren't terribly clear, though, and I've tried to explain things 
below. At the end of all this you have 3 iron wizards to fight. Use lightning 
bolt 3-4 from all your sorcerers. Ybmug is in the stasis field. Use the 
settings below to free him. Don't worry if you guess wrong.

If all that's confusing, and it may be, the pattern is:

Note that right and left aren't right and left on your screen since your 
party enters the chamber facing south. But there's no penalty for mucking 
anything up.

  Annotations here are in the approximate order in which you will see things 
happen. I've given super quick hints to help you through it. But you can also 
tell from the map above. There's only one fixed fight, and you need to pass 
it, because all forms of teleport fail here--besides fleeing, which doesn't 
really count. How to get through should be pretty clear from the map: you 
want to avoid the X's(combats) and make your way past the three iron wizards. 
For them, having everyone who's able cast lightning bolt S3-4 makes things 
easy.

  In the stasis chamber the answer for what to set left and right is below. 
If you confuse Yekop's settings with Ybmug's, no big deal. You can actually 
try and keep hitting ESC until you get it right.

You'll want to slip through the secret doors behind the stairs for Lloyd's 
Beacon early on. The Admit 8 pass to get to the bottom part is in Sandsobar 
or occasionally a random combat. Some secret doors lead to a clue about Holy 
Word, which is advised for solving Corak's Cave for the cleric's quest. Well, 
Holy Word or getting a level 17+ Cleric hireling or another trick described 
in the walkthrough to give everyone spell level 9.

Most undeads can be taken out with C1-7 turn undead but in the last bit it's 
worth it to cast a few holy words and rejuvenate later. If you are really 
cheap, you can have the hireling cast holy word. See the guy at ! and then 
navigate the doors--note there's a nice path that allows you to suffer only 
one fight.

If you mess this up you can get another admit 8 pass from Sandsobar, and you 
can find Corak's Soul again pretty easily, too. Come to think of it, you 
probably needed Holy Word to get it in the first place.

I recommend bringing along skill potions for whether you want to solve the 
ninja quest or whether you want to get the orb. Make sure you have the 
radicon, fluxer, todilor and capitor before getting the orb too. These are 
found in the castles. You must also have the four talons, found in the 
elemental planes, and don't forget you get them from the discs in Castle 
Xabran. You also need to do this the right way--only jump works of the 
movement spells. Oh, and there's one other important addition to your party.

Dawn's Mist Bog is impervious to allforms of spell-based transport, but it 
has a nifty back-door shuttle to Murray's and also shuts down all exits if 
you find the orb. But more on that later. You can fish for luck by fighting 
Lucky Dogs, who are formidable opponents, N and E and the first door above.

In the northeast corner you can go east and beat up the greedy snitches 
guarding the secret door to get to the orb guardians. You'll need all the 
might you can get for this, because the fight will be in a no-magic zone. 
Once you've gotten past this, you will be in the presence of the orb.

The only problem is taking the orb out of there. You'll need a hireling to 
dismiss. Now, why the cave would let the hireling out when it wouldn't let 
you is a logical doohickey that made me say "Wait! They were trying for 
realism!" and my head would have exploded if I were a comic character. But 
when I thought about it it's the sort of slick-ism I'd have been proud to 
figure out quickly on my own. Though I'm prouder of the cheats that I've 
found.

However in the northeast corner you can also visit Dawn. You can beat her up 
with non-ninjas but to solve the ninja quest you need a bunch of really good 
fighters. Skill potions again are a cheap way out--note you have giant ogres 
to beat up first, so you may wish to take them out relying on your best 
fighters.

Teleports and the surface spell don't work here, but there's a way to a 
secret door to find most anything. First, though, the answer to questions 
I've seen in Kelly Flewin's and Bjorgvin Leifsson's guides: there's nothing 
in (7-9,6.) I used Apple save states to get to the square (9,6) and it's just 
a one way ticket out of that bit. Note also that the other small indents at 
the edge lead to some very nice treasure. You can go in there several times 
once you're pretty good.

You can also pick your poison with regard to which dragons to fight to get to 
secret areas. There are a lot of fun treasures to find, and the ones on the 
left are nice(particularly the ones near the stairs) for building up. So you 
may want to retrace. Get +5 helms for everyone and pile up gold and make sure 
you have good magic weapons, although you may find better random items out 
there.

Once you've cleaned up the left, it's worth pumping yourself up with skill 
potions to deal with the magic serpent first in the northwest. If you can get 
past him, there's glass you can break for 1000 hit points for everyone. Once 
you've gotten this, you can beat the magic serpents guarding the secret areas 
in the right. The ancient dragon directly east of where you start is a tough 
customer. Though he gives 10 million experience to share, I don't recommend 
going after him unless you're very good.

Magic serpents are super tough. You need lots of fortification, and I'd 
recommend having completed all class quests before continuing. Bring ALL your 
spells. You might want to build up to 1000 hit points by taking the top one 
first, as it doesn't have any cohorts. The other magic serpents guard some 
really nice gold armor. Which I recommend. Eventually you'll get lucky with 
the 1 magic serpent, so try your luck there. I recommend casting protection 
from magic/elements before this fight. And try various individual spells to 
see what works. It's worth stocking everyone with mondo skill potions--and 
saving after you get the 1000+ hit points.

There's no law against stocking up several times. Give everyone who wants, 
gold shields. Their luck will go soaring through the roof.

The druids' cave, for starters, can be an easy place to build up strength, If 
you have teleport, or if everyone in your party has 21+ hit points and you're 
willing to rest a bit and cast surface/Lloyd's Beacon (or better, 40+ hit 
points and you don't mind healing,) you can duck in and out quickly to get 
your might up. The spinach is 3 north of where you enter. But the problem is: 
where you enter is not where you exit. Those two are a bit away. Your best 
bet to get to the center quickly is to flee.

The rest of the cave is divided roughly into four chambers: earth, water, air 
and fire. Each has snares you can't levitate over(-20 HP) and a set of 
encounters that are not too treacherous. The key things to note: the big-
cheese druid in the NE gives you a quest. Once you have it, head to the SW 
and beat up the Horvath and return NE.

The druids' cave is so treacherous that I just teleport to get through with 
it. It's got some minor treasures, but the annoyance of walking through means 
they're not worth it. Also, note that lots of fights here that appear 
randomly. In fact it seems as though they disappear outright after you win 
one, or winning one fight erases another.

Not much really to do here. It's easy enough to beat up the Frost Dragon 
that's in back. 1N 1E 1S through the secret door. It's not trivial, but if 
you start out with a lot of hit points--and have good magic weapons and use 
heal spells/magic herbs liberally--you shouldn't have many problems. If you 
have robbers that are already pretty good that is a huge bonus. Sherman and 
Red Duke should definitely be taken along for this. Finding them is not so 
bad.

Overview:

This is a classic maze sort of map, and it's rather challenging despite the 
big diamond in the center. Teleport doesn't work here, etherealize does. 
Levitate over the magical lava. You can also jump a bit but levitate makes it 
easy. You need etherealize to visit the gemmaker, who charges everyone 10 
years. You can of course work these off visiting Murray's Isle via the tour, 
twice.

There are no fixed combats here, so maybe you can sneak in and out a few 
times to get some valuable treasure. Approaching the diamond from above gets 
you a treasure--and then two other useful ones south and to the west. The 
fire shields and flaming swords should do well for your front line. You also 
can get clues about all the talons here.

you will find the Air Talon."
(3,3) A sweaty master gemmaker is willing to sell you the spell, Enchant 
Item, for an undisclosed price. Buy it (y/n)?

(9,3)(4,8)(14,8)(9,13) Molten magma fills the large cavern before you, yet 
something shines at the center.

(7,7) Amongst the lava you find a Fiery Spear +4. [sic--Among]
(14,7) Smoke signals read: "The Fire Talon rests at 4,4 in the Elemental 
Plane of Fire."
(9,8) A Flaming Sword is stuck in the glassy volcanic rock. Pry it loose

(9,10) An untarnished Fire Shield is found. [Fire Shield +4]
(7,12) Written in mud upon the mossy wall "The Earth Talon is enshrined at 
8,8 in the Elemental Plane of Earth."
All other squares in the center diamond give "Magical Lava! (poof)," -50 hit 
points, and teleport you to (2,14). Unless you levitate. Remember to cast the 
spell again if you get an encounter and rest.

The ice caverns are pretty straightforward. You have a main passage east, 
leading to a personality boost as long as a party doesn't mix males and 
females, and side passages up and down. In these side passages, a huge number 
of monsters guards a treasure. Some treasures are worth it and some aren't. 
You can't jump over the monsters, because there's a slide in front of each 
monster group, but you can teleport.

If you want to play it square, I recommend jumping over the slide traps, 
because they kick you to level 5, make you lose a spell level, and halve your 
spell points. This happens even after you've won the fight.

The most worthwhile treasures I've found are the +3 speed boots and the +5 
cold shield. You can just hold down control-a to defeat the goblins and use 
the back door to sneak the +3 speed boots. All other treasures are one fight, 
one reward--there are three together at the bottom, but only the +15 
dagger(sorceror) is worth it ther. The 150 blood suckers shouldn't be too 
tough. Or the orcs. Also behind the 250 kobolds, who are very easy but 
tedious, you have a +3 Ice Sickle and a +3 Cold Blade, 2- and 1-handed 
weapons resisting cold.

There's also the matter of the males/females only rooms. After entering one

Overview: Murray's Cave is a maddening place to explore. It features many 
nasty tricks and even a bunch of stone golems guarding a treasure you don't 
want to take anyway. It seems Murray doesn't want you to visit, given that 
you can't teleport, but in fact there's a back way to see him. Oh, and don't 
drink the Goofy Juice. It has some clues but it's not a critical place to be.

Stealing Murray's gold(or finding it--stealing it trashes your characters) is 
very tricky as you have to fight a bunch of stone golems, which requires(from 
what I know) a bunch of high powered spells, as weapons just don't affect 
them. But this weird dungeon has a lot of neat clues too.

(0,0) The Element Orb waits at 10,15 in Dawn's Mist Bog Cavern.

(6,5) Before you lies an infinitesimally small portion of Murray's wealth. Do 
you dare steal it (y/n)?
  [YES:] Seek and you shall find the treasure, but you were warned!
(2,6) Dare steal from me impetuous fool, and suffer the consequences! Love, 
Murray
(12,7) Only the valiant may wield the Sword of Valor, hidden for years in A2 
at 11,2.
(0,8) An evil veil hides mystic teleport to the horrid Dawn's Mist Bog. Enter 
(y/n)?
  [YES:] Teleport to Dawn's 11,3
(1,8) Murray puts you on a quest. If you win vs Dawn you can search for 
100000 gold. You can beat Dawn then come here.

The Nomadic Rift will trap beginning adventurers but a teleport orb coupled 
with Lloyd's Beacon will make it a breeze. You want to get to (0,15) and if 
you want to save a teleport, teleport one east and then up--or better, go two 
east and search in the side rooms for a bit of cash before going up. You can 
cast a Lloyd's Beacon(set) S2-6 at (0,15) and then surface C4-5 and S2-

C = cave-in. You must face 6 wraiths.

! = Sarakin's warning
@ = Sarakin fight, with a pool of rejuvenation if you win

Although you have a lot of fixed combats here, the only big deal is the fight 
with Sarakin. The Wraiths are annoying, but once you know where they are you 
can jump over them. You can even just teleport where you want/need to. If you 
wish to do everything honestly, then Sarakin's Mine is an exercise in finding 
secret doors, and in fact it has the only one in this game that goes across 
the automap boundary.

Sarakin himself is very nasty to kill and you may need to use Holy Word to 
wipe him out. But if you want to get in and out quickly you can just go 2N 
and etherealize west and just surface. The NPCs are rather good.

The honest way through is to go 1N 3W 2N W N 2W N jump N 2E N E N E N jump 2N

Castle Xabran is very plausible as a sort of magical hint book, even if it 
turns out to be a great center of knowledge about stuff that will happen in 
100 years. It tells you where to find all the NPC's and all the spells. You 
can actually get through with no combats, using jump if you are careful, or 
even teleports. The fire and earth discs are in light-draining areas behind 
secret doors, so you might want to cast C3,5 for comfort.

There are many one way doors here to obscure parts of the castle, but those 
aren't really interesting. Most of what you want to find is pretty clearly 
there, although one "hall of spells" should be hireling hall. Enemies are 
about equal with the first level of a castle dungeon. Also, many of the doors 
only lock after you go through, which is annoying.

  10. CASTLES AND BELOW

Castles each have three levels, and while Hillstone and Woodhaven are very 
similar, Luxus and Pinehurst are unique in their own way. You need an item 
from each, and you need to rescue a bishop of battle from each, but other 
than that, only the latter two are critical to solving the game. For Luxus, 
you need to check with Queen Lamanda to make sure you have won the triple 
crown. Lord Peabody has a quest you must solve.

The castle dungeons are prohibitively difficult to tackle in one swoop. 
Sometimes you'll just get a nasty monster in one of the random fights. But 
each of the bottom levels has
--2 class specific items on squares that cannot be visited by that specific 
class. These specific items raise an attribute by 15. They can be magically 
charged.
--1 square where you can gain a small amount of MaxHP permanently. Here it's 
actually good not to have one of each race as these are behind "No [race]" 
signs. Apparently these un-PC signs are on the PC too.
--1 square where you can exchange 5 of one attribute for 3 of another, maxing 
the other at 99
--1 square on level 2 for a super duper effect, usually for 1000000 gold
--a teleportal to a different castle on the same dungeon level, Luxus-
>Hillstone->Woodhaven->Pinehurst. You always wind up at the stairs up.

But for something light to start...here are some orc jokes! The jester tells 
them just before the throne room. Except in Pinehurst.

Did you hear about the orc who thought kites were made from flypaper?
Why are there only twenty hours in an Orc day?  Ever see an orc with twenty-
four fingers and toes?
Why can't orcs lie on the beach?  Cats will bury them.
What do you call an orc with half a brain?  Gifted.
How can you recognize an orc pirate?  He is the one with a patch over 
botheyes.
Did you hear about the orc who went to the dentist to have a wisdom tooth put 
in?
Why can't orcs boil water?  They forgot the recipe!
What's the most dangerous job in CRON?  Dentist to a vampire.
Why did the doctor tell the zombie to get plenty of sleep?  He was dead on 
his feet.
What's a ghost's favorite game?  Hide and Shriek.
What's a sea monster's favorite meal?  Fish and Ships.
Why didn't the skeleton cross the road?  He didn't have the guts.
What are the two things an orc cannot have for breakfast?  Lunch and dinner.
Orc party game = Pin the horns on the dragon.
Why do orc women wear high-healed shoes?  To keep their knuckles from 
dragging on the ground.
Did you hear about the orc ventri-loquist whose dummy quit to find a new 
partner?
An orc bought a pet rock.  It ran away the next day.
Orc inventions:  waterproof sponges.
How many orcs does it take to carry out a kidnapping?  Ten, one to capture 
the kid and nine to write the ransom note.
Did you hear about the orc who cut off his left arm and leg?  He wanted to be 
all right.
How can you tell if an orc is an aristocrat?  His tattoo has no spelling 
errors.
What do you get when the Mega Dragon walks through a vegetable garden?  
Squash.

Castle Hillstone contains a couple of hirelings, many pairs of enemies, and a 
bunch of random combats. It's in the same shape as Woodhaven, but instead of 
money you have encounters. You can teleport(4W from SW corner) around to get 
the N-19 Capitor, or you can walk around--west door, 2W 3S 3W 3N 
2E(encounter) N-E through secret doors(encounter) N 2W S.

If you wish to find the hirelings, go through the east of the doors and head 
2S E 3S(an encounter) W 3S. The castle guards actually disperse quickly if 
you use skill potions. They run away if you have a party member of level 
>=20.

The bishop is just to the east--instead of going through the door to get to 
the castle guards, go through the one next to it, south all the way, east and 
back north.

The quest to kill the three envoys of evil is not so bad, but it is detailed 
in the quests section. Anything other than the top quest is in fact random 
and not worth your time. If things are too tough and you need to remove your 
quest to visit Lord Peabody in Pinehurst and take care of Sherman, visit the 
SE room with Uncle Spudly's elixir.

Lord Slayer will only bestow a quest unto a Crusader.

Mage]

It's useful for your sorcerer to visit (0,0). You might want to come back to 
make sure he goes over 90 intelligence. You can also bring your archer along, 
since it's easy enough to pump your might back up. Teleports are available 
here but not really useful.

The gold-for-experience fountain here doesn't work as well in MM2(Apple) as 
it did in MM1 because you have a max of 2^24 gold and some later levels 
require 8 million(~2^23) experience per. And it doesn't work as well as the 
fountain in the level below.

d = Dart traps: "As you move forward, scores of darts fly at you from all 
directions."

You can teleport around in this dungeon quite a bit. If you didn't get 
intelligence up as high as you wanted, you can scrape endurance here. Just be 
sure to repair the harm before you give your sorcerer another level! The pool 
at (9,15) is a better bargain than above, but it's still a bit awkward to get 
to. But you can teleport to it. You're better off fighting the cuisinart if 
you want to cheat a ton, although it is the best way to go legit.

Lots of nasty darts here, but they're avoidable for the most part.

The Luxus Palace has a lot of side rooms with thematic fights where you can 
test how good you are, and best of all, they don't get in the way of quests 
you may want to finish. You can just walk in and open the Black Bishop's 
cage. Even if you're not a triple crown winner you get the experience 
bonus(on the Apple at least.)

To get the Todilor head west through the doors and up and west through two 
sets of doors. To go down the stairs go west through the double doors and 
south. Queen Lamanda's at the top but she's just whiny 'til you get good. For 
the Black Bishop go east and up and east at the very top.

A level that is very nasty for the effort it takes. However, you might want 
to improve endurance at the expense of speed, which is easy enough to get 
back from the Nomadic Rift, here. And you can get Speed Boots from the Ice 
Caverns to game this a bit. Oh, avoid doors that say "guards" because they 
fine you by taking all your gold.

The maze spells "Central research observa-tional nacelle." In case you didn't 
have the patience to map it all.

Most of the boxed in squares are automatic random teleports(though one gets 
you some extra hit points.) And there are a few others too. But there's also 
a lever that turns everyone evil. The skulls are interesting items for your 
sorcerers. Maybe arrive here and have archers teleport around.

(4,8) The sign above a magical fountain reads, "eraweb selam" Drink from it 
(y/n)?
  [YES:] [all the party is female. Read the sign backwards.]
(15,0) A mysterious molecule chamber appears before you. Inside, bolts of 
light move frantically about. Will you enter the chamber (y/n)?
  [YES:] The chamber is only big enough for one. Who will enter (1-8)? [-5 
might +3 speed]

deal. I don't think that a fair shake is too much to ask for, do you? So, for 
just one million gold, I'll sell you all the hit points you SHOULD have." 
Will you pay (y/n)?
  [YES: The jester sells hit points to fill you up. This means that you get 
hit points as if you'd been to Atlantium training a bunch. It's especially 
useful if you improved your endurance along the way. But it detects if you're 
over the maximum. So get here before Dragons' Dominion if you want to see it 
in action.]

You can and should teleport out of any mess you get into in Pinehurst, 
because otherwise you run the risk of walking into a year-warp, but there 
still remains the question of what to do.

In the main hall, go down from the center to reach the dungeon. Go down from 
the west side to reach Lord Peabody. And go down from the right to reach the 
bishop.

The non-magic way to get out of Pinehurst if you enter a one-way door is to 
follow the patch clockwise--you may warp forward a year unless you jump at 
(2,8) or (1,0). Then you can take the teleport at (14,5) to the center room 
and walk out.

Go straight west from the left door to get to the J-26 fluxer, which you will 
need. It's in the niche to the south. You can jump over the combat after you 
bust through the door and then teleport out.

The door signs, counterclockwise from the right:

(4,3) Lord Peabody.

your services (y/n)?
    [YES:] "Please return to me with my boy,@Sherman, and I will reward you."

You can't teleport here or set Lloyd's Beacon although you can jump, which is 
ineffective when a trap is around a corner. So there are a lot of encounters 
to fight through and some annoying traps.

The most productive thing to do here(with no downside) is to find the plume 
of water that gives you +10 accuracy. It's at (14,13) after a gauntlet of 
monsters. You may have to run away a few times to get to it. If you flee you 
go to the stairs down (2,1) making this dungeon level that much nastier. Your 
best bet to get out safely and quickly is to go down the stairs and W-S-2E to 
the Luxus dungeon. Or just cast surface.

From the up stairs, S-E-N-E-S-S-E-N-E-S-E-N-E-E-S-E-S-S-W-S-E-N-E-N and 
follow the zigzags.
From the down stairs, E-N-W-S-W-N-E-S-E-S-E-N-E-N. You can retrace to the 
down stairs and come back up but I have to say it's risky. Castle fights can 
be tough.
But of course you can just trade your speed for accuracy and go back to the 
Nomadic Rift, which may take less time overall. (S-E-N-E-S-W-S).

- = "An ancient curse from a misguided wizard drains your magic." Minus 20 
spell points.

(14,13) A mysterious pool appears before you. Every few seconds, a jet of 
water shoots upward and stops just short of the ceiling. Jump in (y/n)?
  [YES:] The pool shoots you skyward. As you fall back to earth, you notice 
that the pool is gone. All who are worthy attain a new level of accuracy!

Some special places are guarded by barriers, and you probably won't get to 
them, and you don't need the special items anyway. But the sorcerer at (2,1) 
is nice if you don't want to get all the spells. For a cool 2 million he'll 
give you all his spells. W N N E S E S W S W W S W N W S W N W S E to the 
open area and etherealize north. Woohoo. But your energy may be better spent 
going N W S W S W N W N E N E E N N N from the first turn, which will get you 
to a personality/luck tradeoff. Great for everyone except clerics and 
paladins.

Still there's no real reason to visit this dungeon. No teleports either or 
anything.

- = You are struck by bolts of electricity which drain your magic. (-50 
magic)

(7,7) Stairs leading up. Climb them (y/n)?
(2,1) A wizard appears and says, "Come close, I give you deal. I'm a little 
down on my luck, so I'm willing to let you have THIS for just 2 million 
gold." He pulls out an old, rotting book. It's titled: "How to Succeed in 
Spell-Casting Without Really Trying." Buy it (y/n)?
  [YES, NO CASH:] Hey! What are you trying to pull. Make sure that the first 
member of your party has the cash or no deal!
  [YES, CASH:] You open the book and it vanishes with a flash. You have 
learned all spells! You spot the wizard cornering another party,"I'm a little 
down on my luck.."
(5,1) A sign above a fountain reads, "Good Water." Will you drink (y/n)?
  [YES:] All are content. [all alignments shift to good]

(4,15) Thick syrup drips from the walls. You consider sampling it, but you've 
got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do you (y/n)?
  [YES:] Who will sample (1-8)? [ -5 personality +3 luck (great for non

Woodhaven is the most obnoxious castle, not because the monsters are tough, 
but because there's gold everywhere and the game constantly asks if you want 
to take it. That gold is never worth it. Uncle Spudly's Quest Removal Potion 
is in the SE but what you really want is the Radicon. Go through the right 
door, 3N E 4N 3W N 3W N W. Bingo.

The bishop is west after you past the jester, then you go down.

Lord Hoardall is just past the jester. He gives you a quest for the three 
swords. It's a pretty neat one, and with a few skill potions you should win 
handily.

A pretty simple looking dungeon, and you can teleport around a bit to find 
the cool parts. In the SE is a good exchange for all but clerics/paladins. 
The stairs down are easy to find too--straight east, south through the secret 
door, 2W S.

The Onyx Effigy is a pretty handy item for your cleric, better than a holy 
medal if you have the space, and you only need to blast through one fight to 
get it.

This is without a doubt the nastiest dungeon level in the game. You can't 
cast any sort of teleport spell, but you can get stuck in a teleport. Many 
nasty combats. If you can run in without your cleric(use paladin for healing) 
and get back out, then perhaps you can navigate things. But why bother when 
you have the level above? The gems/experience trade is a ripoff too.

Not much to do here except walk behind the mountains and get to the "inner

Flying to A3 leaves you in the middle of 10 Carnage Spirits. So don't do it. 
Unless you're ready to cast turn undead and some other spells.

The only thing here really is the pair of NPC's at (8,1) which are best 
approached from Atlantium. The fights with White Knights on the other islands 
may yield some nice treasure though. Just don't run(see flying above.)

with lucky symbols and you cannot tell if Flailer is a guy or a girl! Never-
the-less, they can be found at the Carriage Inn for hire.

air. The party is hypnotically drawn toward the sweet sound. All males are 
dead. [4 mutant fish 2 gnasher 2 chomper 2 sea monster--sea monsters gaze]
  [WIN THE FIGHT:] In the hull of this old ship, you will find sunken 
treasure if you search. [10000 gold, +5 Dark Trident]

#(7,7) Nestled in the open-air pavillion rests the Gourmet. He wishes to 
speak with a true epicurean. Will you talk with him (y/n)?
  [YES:] Who will talk with the Gourmet (1-8)?
  [ALL 15 MEALS:] Ah, I appreciate a fellow connoisseur. You are truly an 
epicurean (+100,000 experience).

This is as good a place as any to start the round-the-horn bit to get the 
elemental spells. But I find I usually exit Atlantium from here and back up 
and then turn around and fly somewhere else. Note that if you want to rescue 
Flailer and Fumbler, drink at the pool and go north and turn left just before 
the second of two isles you'll see.

(0,0) A wet mist drenches the party as you stand before the passage to the 
Elemental Plane of Water. Enter (y/n)?
(1,1) By adventuring in the watery abyss, an understanding with liquid has 
been achieved. The spell Water Encasement can now be cast by those with 
proper ability.

(10,1)(12,1)(10,2)(2,3)(3,3)(7,4)(4,6)(6,6)(1,8)(0,10) ??

(8,8) Affixed to a table in the center of an empty garrison, an old, rotted 
scroll tells how to cast the spell Water Transmutation.
(10,10) A rancid smell rises from a fetid pool. Dare to sip the sewage (y/n)?
  [YES:] all attributes 100
(13,10) You spy upon a lone seagull drifting down to Atlantium. Enter (y/n)?

The pegasus is here as is Haart Hold and the Ice Caverns, which are worth 
seeing. There's a maze of blizzards to get to the pegasus. Some woodsmen are 
in the northeast forest with a worthless prize--a fountain right there helps 
you get it.

Haart (y/n)?
  [YES:] Lord Haart wonders if you could do@his house a favor (y/n)?
    [NO:] He leaves you with a sigh of disgust.
    [YES:] Two of my ancestors held items of legend which brought great honor 
to the House of Haart. In the seventh century, Spaz Twit owned a phaser. In 
the eighth century, a man known simply as The Long One owned a 
ceremonial...loincloth. Return these items to me and you shall be rewarded.
  [ON QUEST:] I implore you, retrieve the phaser and loincloth from the 7th 
and 8th centuries!
  [SOLVED:] Thank you so much. The House of Haart is indebted to you. You 
shall receive 250,000 experience. Search now for your gold and gems.

This is really divided in three parts--the isle of the ancients, the west 
part of the Druids' area, and Jousters' way. You will fly to (15,3) and so it 
is probably better to walk from Middlegate to Jousters' Way. Nothing in the 
druid area except some clues and the green message. The Isle of the Ancients 
is for sorcerers, and Jousters' Way is for knights.

Murray's Isle is an amusing mess, and east of that are some crazed natives 
guarding a valuable NPC. Use all the spells you need on them. There's also 
the south part of the Isle of the Ancients. But most interesting is the 
fountain of might, which you should try before you fight the Amazons. Crazed 
natives can kill you due to their swarming so you'll want to avoid 
unnecessary fights there. From the fountain go 4W and all the way south. Then 
after beating the amazons, if you feel you're strong enough, go 2W. Because 
the NPCs here are so important, skill potions are a great investment. They 
may cause the amazons to outright flee.

This area is also valuable because you can win a few gems in a pinch. From 
12,12 to 12,15 there are gems washed on the shore. You can leave the area and 
come back--the downside is that you may have a water combat, which is much 
worse than a land combat, and sometimes you get a land combat right after a 
water one.

Mainland:
(12,12-15) Gems wash ashore! [+5 gems to all]
  (you can go back and forth here but risk of water encounter)

Murray's:
(2,2) Weird lights flicker inside Murray's Cave. Go in (y/n)?
(3,2) Massage Therapy. Want a rub down(y/n)?
  [YES:] You feel rejuvenated. [+75 personality]
(4,2) A marble swimming pool. Jump in (y/n)?
  [YES:] Someone has poured acid in the pool! [-30 HP]
(2,3) Two scantily clad Atlantian maidens bearing baskets of rose petals 
beckon you to the waters of the hot springs. Bathe (y/n)?
  [YES:] You feel rejuvenated. [-5 years to all]
  [NO PAY:] Paying guests ONLY! See the travel agent.
(3,3) Mosaic tiles of frolicking dolphins decorate Murray's Resort Spa.
(4,3) Murray's gym. Work out?
  [YES:] random encounter
(2,4) By a pit of brown gunk, a nubian eunich announces, "We use only the 
finest mud mixed with volcanic ash imported from distant Vulcania. Take a mud 
bath (y/n)?"
(3,4) Giants playing volleyball. Join (y/n)?
  [YES:] 12 Hill Giants
(4,4) Juice Bar. Drink (y/n)?
  [YES:] All players poisoned.

Boat ride:
(5,3) I hope you have enjoyed your cruise to Murray's Resort Isle.
(7,3) Coming up, Murray's Resort Isle.
(7,10) Isle of the Ancients, Good Zone.
(?,?) Off in the distance is Atlantium.

Lower part:
#(8,1) 15 crazed natives
  [WIN FIGHT:] The hyperactive fighting style of the crazed natives has 
influenced your Clerics to concoct a Frenzy Spell.
#(10,1) 10 amazons
  [WIN FIGHT:] "Wait 'til Peabody hears about this!"says Sherman, while 
crafty Nakazawa bows in thanks. "Thanks for saving us from those crazy 
natives. If you want, look for us at the Carriage Inn."
#(12,1)(13,1)(12,2)(9,3)(11,3)(14,5) 5 crazed natives
#(14,9) A mineral water fountain. Drink (y/n)?
  [YES:] random might 1-255(?)(try drinking a few times)

Isle of Ancients:
#(4,10) On heavy wooden doors of an old fortress is scrawled: Sorcerers ONLY! 
Enter (y/n)?
  [YES, NON SORCERERS:] You are repelled!

The center of the game really. The final dungeon, Middlegate, an Orc Orchard 
that's totally useless with a well thought out walkthrough, the walk on water

The swamp is to be avoided here(tough monsters, poor treasure, and quicksand 
that kills one player--another, if you turn while on that square) and in fact 
the only thing to do here is either 1) give Kalohn the orb in the 8th century 
or 2) visit the Cat from Hell at 1,9 and open the door and hope it doesn't 
splatter your cleric, first thing. You can increase the odds by getting spell 
levels in C1 and getting Holy Word, too, so that your Paladin can blast all 
the undeads. Brutal Bruno's in the northwest, too. This sector is totally 
avoidable except for Kalohn, whom you can cut out of your walkthrough if you 
don't want to be in the spirit of the game.

epic battle with the Mega Dragon. History has changed and he wins. Return to 
the tenth century for further instructions at Luxus Palace Royale.
    [NO ORB, or ORB and NO:] You watch the valiant King Kalohn die as he 
engages the mighty Mega Dragon. A wave of water is Kalohn's last act as the 
Mega Dragon approaches you.

Mt Farview is here if you have teleport or mountaineering capabilities. You 
probably don't want to touch the random combats. But the fights in the 
queen's orchard are entertaining. You can avoid Mandagaul and how he pushes 
you back by facing south and retreating into him--or better yet, just taking 
the mountains. Castle Luxus in the northeast.

There's also one random incident that doesn't seem to happen:
'Horns blow, heralding a pack of fierce hounds chasing a stag, as the royal 
hunting party rides swiftly by./Castle guards confront you, "Poachers of 
royal games will be severely punished!"'

#(7,0)^v A plaque left by the Jurors of Mount Farview reads: "For each 
character class, a test of true standing must be completed. If you have 
already completed a test your reward is 5 million experience points ..."
"and recognition in the form of a '+'. Classes must go alone, without the 
rest of the party or in the company of Robbers, who must aid at least one 
class to earn their mark."

A few yellow messages here, some sinkholes to the Nomadic Rift(a safer way to 
get there than over earthquakes, but you can levitate anyway) and a baffling 
instance where the best NPC is guarded by a Giant Beetle. The old man with 
the Kewpie Doll(useful later on at the circus) is here too. Avoid the 
leprechauns; they vaporize gems.

Vulcania is in E1, and for mountaineers it's a short walk to the gem-maker's-
-even shorter if you've got mountaineers(E 3N.) Still long enough that you 
should levitate there as if you turn on a lava spot you can take double 
damage. Also you might want to cut into the mountains northwest to pick up 
the elemental spells.

A prohibitively difficult place that may only be useful if you cast a Lloyd's 
Beacon at the Greatest Fountain. I've fought groups of 7 Cuisinarts here. 
Don't mess around. Flying to E2 gets you to an oasis where you can refill on 
food, which may save a few bucks. And the Queen Beetle fight helps with a 
quest. But pay attention to the map so you don't get a random encounter. The 
dragon encounters are winnable with Moon Ray. And you can probably go back to 
the Greatest Fountain for refills after each fight. The experience is good 
enough.

yourself. The forest in the desert is where you go in conjunction with the 
circus and there are a few yellow messages too. The injury free way to the

  11-6. ELEMENTAL PLANES

Describing the element planes may be simpler than navigating them. First, if 
you haven't found the element discs in Castle Xabran, don't bother with this 
yet. If you have, you're probably good enough to beat up all the monsters 
around. But you really only need to beat up one set if you know where they 
are.

The element planes have a lot of fixed fights that create a maze of 
encounters you may want to avoid unless you're really good, and I hope the 
maps make things clear. There's also a lord of elements who is really tough. 
He tends to call on powers, which can knock out a party that hasn't broken 
the hit point glass in the Dragon's Dominion. His fights give about a million 
experience, but they're not necessary. Power Shield and Protection from 
Elements are critical.

To get through an element plane, you need only find the pedestal(surrounded 
by fixed fights) and the game will automatically exchange your disc for a 
talon. You can also try your hand at defeating the element lord in a 
different square, or you can search for the Red Messages. Each plane has two 
red messages on the edge, and the Earth Plane has an additional one inside.

To get out of the elemental planes, or any time zone, just rest a bunch. That 
should do the trick. Eventually you'll be asked to put disk B back in and you 
should be zapped to Middlegate on the day you left the tenth century.

For reference,
100 = water 200 = air 300 = fire 400 = earth

Also,
Enter the Fire plane casting C8-2 at E1(15,15)
Enter the Water plane casting C6-5 at A4(0,0)
Enter the Air plane casting C4-2 at A1(0,15)
Enter the Earth plane casting C6-1 at E4(15,0)

These squares form a small clump together. So you can move right from one to 
another.

Legend:
* = generic set fight
@ = big fight
! = Red Message
+ = exchange element disc for element talon

  12. HEX CHEATS(APPLE)

On AppleWin you can use save states, which captures a snapshot of your 
players in the game's memory. This is handy because you can edit on the fly--
maybe even restore charges to an item, or change its alignment, or just give 
yourself a ton of experience and gold. I used them a lot to get around 
certain issues. Each character's data is 128 bytes. So:

char 1 0x470 char 2 0x4f0
char 3 0x570 char 4 0x5f0
char 5 0x670 char 6 0x6f0
char 7 0x770 char 8 0x7f0

I assume you have a working knowledge of hex for this, but still, back up 
your work once you start. Multibyte values are littleendian(least significant 
first.) Here's the structure. You add the following below to edit the various 
hex bytes:

0x00 slot # on disk(00-17 for A-X)
0x01 town you started in
0x02-0x0b your character's name, ORed with 0x80.
0x0c gender, 0=m 1=f 2=n(??)
0x0d actual alignment, 0-1-2=good-neutral-evil
0x0e race, 0-1-2-3-4 human-elf-dwarf-gnome-halforc
0x0f class, 0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7 kni-pal-arc-cle-sor-rob-nin-bar
0x10 might(actual)
0x11 intelligence(actual)
0x12 personality(actual)
0x13 speed(actual)
0x14 accuracy(actual)
0x15 luck(actual)
Next are the resistance percentages. These aren't defaults.
0x16 magic
0x17 fire
0x18 electricity
0x19 cold
0x1a energy
0x1b sleep
0x1c fear
0x1d acid
0x1e thieving %
0x1f Armor Class - speed

0x22 temporary might
0x23 temporary speed
0x24 temporary accuracy
0x25 temporary alignment
0x26 temporary level
0x27 temporary spell level
0x28-0x29 CurSP
0x2a temporary endurance
0x2b temporary intelligence
0x2c temporary personality
0x2d temporary luck
0x2e level (actual)
0x2f age
0x30 days old

0x3c-0x3d MaxHP
0x3e-0x40 Gold
0x41 armor class
0x42 food
0x43 condition
FYI:
0=OK 1=cursed 2=silent 4=diseased 8=poisoned 10=asleep 20=paralyzed 
40=unconscious
All of these can be ORed up to 7f. But 81=dead, 82=stone and all other values 
are eradicated.
0x44 endurance(actual)
0x45-0x4a index # of item equipped in slot 1-6
0x4b-0x50 index # of backpack item in slot 1-6
0x51-0x56 # of charges of item equipped in slot 1-6
0x57-0x5c # of charges of backpack item in slot 1-6
0x5d-0x62 magic index (+x) of item equipped in slot 1-6
0x63-0x68 magic index (+x) of backpack item in slot 1-6
0x69-0x6c ???? these bytes rely on you having various items. I don't know the 
specifics but they don't seem important. Perhaps it is about random luck 
functions during combat?
0x6d high/low bytes = skills. Skills are 0(clear) through f, in alphabetical 
order.
[none] / Arms Master / Athlete / Cartographer /
Crusader / Diplomat / Gambler / Gladiator /
Hero-heroine / Linguist / Merchant / Moutaineer(sic) /
/ Navigator / Pathfinder / Pickpocket / Soldier /
0x6e-0x73 spell flags. Low byte of 6e = 1-1, and you move up from there.
0x74-0x7f Quest specific flags, I think. Maybe I'll figure them all out one 
day.

Byte 0xa0 in the save state file determines your location. The high nibble(4 
bits) is the y-location, the low is the x-location. That's how I got through 
Woodhaven 2 without too much torture.

  13. APPLE VS PC NOTES, ETC.

    13-1. APPLE DISK FORMAT

You can get to level 255 on the Apple and keep advancing, but it takes a lot 
more experience than on the PC, where you can only get to level 200.
On the Apple there's a printing bug--the edges get overwritten after Thund R 
and Aeriel talk to you.
The Apple also had 6 disks
A: boot disk, end scenes too
B: town disk
C: outside disk
D: dungeon disk
E: outside disk(c4, d1-d4, e1-e4)
F: castle disk, elements too

    13-2. APPLE BUGS

The Apple had a lot of entertaining bugs. The biggest being you don't need to 
restore Kalohn to the throne, and you get no alternate ending. Why'd they use 
a password at the end?

Training heals all hit points.  Not necessarily a bug, but useful!

When you unlock the Bishop of Yellow Battle, you don't lose your Yellow Key. 
So you can go back and unlock him. But you won't get the Triple Crown bonus. 
So it's an awkward exploit to piling up hit points.

The Teleport Bug is probably the most useful and interesting of all the bugs. 
Basically, if you try to teleport to (a,x) where x>15 or x<0, the game 
subtracts/adds 16 to your y-coordinate. But if you teleport to (b,y) where 
b<0, you wind up at (b+16, y-1 mod 16) and if you teleport to (b,y) where 
b>15, you wind up at (b-16, y+1 mod 16). I think what the game does is that 
it calculates the location as one byte, the high value = y and low = x, and 
horizontal teleport is (wrongly) simplified to adding a number on instead of 
saving the high nibble, adding, modding, and retrieving the high nibble.

The bug above also applies to Etherealize.

You can cast noncombat spells when silenced.

Lord Haart's quest is unsolvable because there's no Long One at E2(5,4). The 
dialogue for if you want to attack the Long One is in the E2 sector, but 
there's no way to activate it.

Enchant Item doesn't always work.  Sometimes when you cast it it will reduce 
your spell points incorrectly.  It will be off by a factor of 512 and, in 
fact, you will probably use fewer spell points to enchant an item to a higher 
level(i.e. +15 as opposed to +5).

Sarakin appears at (8,8) in his mine even after you defeat him.

If you rest in the Water Plane and then try to cross a boundary(i.e. go 
east from 15,3) you will see "can't swim."

Cast Nature's Gate from Castle Xabran, and you will wind up back in the 
900's.  However, if you rest or enter a town, this is adjusted.  (What 
happens if you cast Nature's Gate on day 93 of year 800?)

It's possible to balloon your stats quickly.  For instance, say you have an 
item that increases your personality at the expense of your luck. Then equip 
it and trade luck for personality until your luck is at zero. Un-equip and 
re-equip.  Voila!  Your luck is positive again. If you have gold items, this 
makes things rather easy. And you can pass the gold item around.

If you jump behind the fountain in A3(1,14) you will attack the voice that 
tells you (not) to drink.  But then if you go back to the fountain you still 
hear the voice.

If Dead Heads attack low-level characters, they will lose experience and hit 
points.  If low-level characters' hit points go below zero, they cycle to 
just under 65536(=2^16)

Go through a one-way door in Pinehurst.  Flee from monsters, and you'll wind 
up by the exits, and thus you won't need to look for the teleporters.  This 
is a general bug(always flee to the same square) and part of the general 
restraints on 128k RAM trying to emulate reality, but this is physically 
impossible--you've got nowhere to run once you go from the door!

The world doesn't seem to end in 1000.  I tried running through time traps in 
Pinehurst, and it didn't.

On the Apple, Holey Moley originally has 166 maximum spell points.  He should 
really have 19*9=171 spell points, and he does, after he's rested.

Some permanent statistical changes don't show up until you've gotten in a 
fight or rested.

I think the game screws up when you dismiss a hireling who is the only 
remaining conscious PC.

If you win the orb in Dawn's Cavern and dismiss a hireling or drop it, it 
reappears on its pedestal.

Castle Guards, when they attack you for not having a Castle Key, have a 
castle icon during the fight.

If you identify an item and it has spell-casting abilities, the spell 
information will overlap the "[alignment] only" information.  The best way to 
get around this is to see if an "o" shows up, meaning "neutral only," and if 
a "y" shows up, it can be good or evil.  A quasi-bug is that if you change 
alignment after equipping such an item, it stays equipped, but you can't re-
equip it.

You can wind up with over 40 food if you cast a food spell having under 40 
food.  The game indicates 40 is the maximum food.

If you fight, then rest, are suprised by monsters, and then run, your chest 
will still be there.

Sometimes there are land encounters right after you win water encounters.

If you try to enter an elemental zone(at the corners) without a spell and 
then walk around a bit, the date will change from that zone's century to the 
current date and back for each movement you make.

Hireling Hall in Castle Xabran is referred to as the Hall of Spells.

The screen update is sometimes slow.  It will be one move behind and you will 
need to refresh it.

    13-4. MM1/MM2 LINKS IN THE STORY

Yes.  Sheltem appears as the name in the MM1 soul maze.  The games also have 
a similar structure with five towns, each in a different locale/climate, and 
the climates are in similar places on the map(roughly, desert-northeast, cold 
mountains-northwest, water-southwest, swamp-southeast.)  And the maps are 
encoded the same way on the disk, if you were wondering(monsters and items 
aren't!)  Also, at the end, there's a mention that CRON and all its VARNs are 
doomed.  VARN was the mainland of MM1.

    13-5. NON-ORC JOKES

Are there any? You bet.  Although I can't vouch for their quality. Many of 
the descriptions are rather good, and the entree names are amusing. But there 
are a few referential ones...

C1(14,14)  "Oh, I'm a lumberjack..." is a song from Monty Python.
The wizards Ymbug and Yekop are Gumby and Pokey spelled backwards--and Gumby 
is _very_ funny.  But where are Elkcirp and Ug and the Sdaehkcolb?
Jesters tell Orc Jokes--see the script proper.
The giant singing the ballad is minorly amusing as are the cans of 
spinach(the rhyme is an allusion to Popeye.)
You can laugh at the poetry if you're that kind of snob, but the rhymes as 
tenuous as gangsta rap don't exactly trash the game.

Unintentional: "cripple runs away." (Thanks to Sashanan.)

  14. VERSIONS

3/9/2000 0.1.0 put in hireling information and some experience information as 
well as spell information.  Minimal monster information.  Spell and key 
information.  
Super-brief walkthrough and green/yellow/red messages.
9/17/2000 0.2.0 added a lot of monster and item information.  Started adding 
rudimentary spell information.  Fixed up attributes a bit as well.  Whatever 
is not finished should be easily(but not quickly, alas!) transcribed from the 
script.
10/9/2000 0.4.0 added the SPELLS and also sharpened up the walkthrough and 
some town information.
2/21/2001 1.0.0 completed monster and item information.
4/25/2005 2.0.0 unified this document with a rough draft of the re-script 
effort. Obviously a lot is in short-hand right now, and some other bits can 
be refined. But I like the redesign. Oh, maps to come on my GeoCities site, 
too.
4/26/2005 2.1.0 merged more stuff and tuned it up as I felt appropriate. The 
walkthrough feels complete and I detailed some ending scripts.
4/27/2005 2.2.0 solidified all details for all areas. Only map ledger stuff
remains. That's a programming exercise.

[old now-defunct script versions:]
0.1--3/3/00:  went through the disk the first time.  Did not sort any loose-
end data but wrote it all down and formatted it so it was readable.  No game 
verification.  Locations are for later!  Began explanatory commentary as 
well.
0.2--3/9/00:  added Xabran, which got filtered out, along with Death Strikes 
dialogue.  Added some locations and re-organized script parts that were 
floating around.  The towns' dialogs are complete, now.  Also "what the disk 
images don't cover"
0.3--3/19/00:  got through disks C-E leaving minor unfinished details in my 
wake. Completing the world map helped this a lot, but some dialogs depend on 
not just the square but also the direction you're facing.

  15. CREDITS

Bjorn Leifsson for the original walkthrough.  It helped me with the messages 
and pointed out some ideas and got me interested in filling in the (slight) 
gaps in his walkthrough.
ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net for having this game as Apple disk-image freeware.
David Ellsworth(ApplePC) for letting me play the game then, Tom Charlesworth 
and those before him(AppleWin) for helping me play the game now
Jon van Caneghem and New World Computing for such a fun game.  It's aged very 
well.
project64.c64.org for having a transcription of the manual.
Sashanan(sashanan@hetnet.nl) for the e-mail and general help offers which put 
my resolve to complete the monster and item lists over the top. I think he 
mentioned Lloyd's Beacon to make the circus quicker, but he did get me to 
look at the circus. That and other observations via IM. And his funny picture 
of the cripple running away. I missed that joke.
The usual GameFAQs gang. They know who they are, and you should, too, because 
they get some SERIOUS writing done. Good people too--bloomer, falsehead, 
lisanne, Masters, RetroFreak, Sashanan(again,) Snow Dragon/Brui5ed Ego, 
ZoopSoul, and others I forgot.
Thanks to my coworkers who've helped me learn how better to organize a big 
project like this(well, in general) since its inception long ago, and I'd 
have learned more if I'd listened more. And also because they understand this 
is how I like to take breaks.
Thanks to Brian Sulpher and Sapharos for asking about maps for similar games, 
which led me back to completing this game.
