    Introduction
    ************
    
    Alien Logic is an action/exploration game loosely based on an obscure but
    awesome pen & paper RPG called "Jorune", or "Skyrealms of Jorune". The
    game takes place in the far future, on a planet called Jorune that was
    settled by humans a few years before Earth was destroyed by a nuclear war.
    War is no stranger to Jorune, either, and shortly after the destruction of
    Earth a costly conflict between human colonists and the shanthas, Jorune's
    native race, nearly wiped out both races. The game takes place 3500 years
    after that war. Humans co-exist uneasily with other races. These include
    the anthropomorphic iscin races, which were evolved from earth animals by 
    a scientist in the aftermath of the war. Also the brilliantly intelligent 
    thriddle, the warlike ramian, and others. The shanthas are still around, 
    but the near extinction of their race has turned many of them vicious and 
    coldhearted. 
    
    As the game begins, a small group of shanthas led by Dytra-Al-Desti, the
    "Red Shantha", has recently attacked a small city and destroyed it, 
    killing many and carrying many more off in stasis devices known as 
    keeper-rods. One man- you, natch- escapes the destruction and sets out to 
    rescue his fellow villagers.
    
    Jorune is, as the manual says, "A paradoxical mix of old and new." While
    some in human society have access to advanced technology left over from
    the colonies, much of the populace lives in a much more primitive mode,
    fighting with swords and clubs and struggling to get by using basic crafts.
    And a selectfew humans, called muadra, are born with the ability to harness
    a powerful energy called Isho. Isho is an ambient energy that permeates 
    Jorune, generated by mysterious crystals within the planet's crust. By 
    harnessing Isho, a muadra can weave powerful projectile orbs called 
    dyshas, and open dimensional warps totravel instantaneously over the face 
    of Jorune.
    
    You are a muadra, which gives you a powerful advantage in your quest to
    defeat the Red Shantha. However, the shanthas can also weave Isho, and 
    have been able to for millenia- it's the basis of all their magical-seeming 
    technology. To have any chance to succeed, you must not only know the 
    weaving of Isho, but master it.
    
    Alien Logic is primarily a game of exploration. While there is a plot to
    follow, characters to interact with, and a few subplots, most of the game
    is spent travelling Jorune, seeking out crystal deposits and shanthic
    ruins. It's a game for people who like the fundamental thrill of
    treasure-hunting, ofgoing places in search of the amazing.
    
    Not that there isn't action. Though it's often better to avoid combat,
    when it does come to blows the game shines. Battles require a blend of
    strategic planning, tactical adaptation, and quick reflexes, and as you
    learn more Dyshas, the combat system becomes deeper and deeper.
    
    Although the game is only a cursory representation of pen-and-paper
    Jorune, it is still very rewarding to play, with many interesting
    elements and a deep and detailed world.
    
    ***************
    Getting Started
    ***************
    
    Getting the game to run
    =======================
    
    This is difficult, if you don't know what you're doing. Alien Logic was
    written for MS-DOS back in 1993. It doesn't work on modern operating
    systems, for that you need a DOS emulator. As of this writing, DOSBox
    is the standard. If you don't know DOS, a frontend will also be helpful.
    I used Dfend v2.
    
    This is how I personally got it playable. Every system is different of
    course, so YMMV:
    
    1) Run the installation program on the CD. This installs the game to
    C:\ALIEN. 
    2) Find the patch (alien11.exe) online and install it. This updates the
    game from version 1.00 to 1.02, fixing some minor issues.
    3) If you wish, move the ALIEN folder to another directory.
    3) Find and Download DOSBox online. (As of this writing, the game works
    fine on version 0.70. Higher versions should also work.)
    4) Find and Download D-Fend online.
    5) Go into Dfend and create a profile for the game. The executable is
    ALIEN.exe in the ALIEN folder. Don't worry about the setup file. You can
    accept most of the defaults, except that you must mount your CD-ROM drive
    as D: (in addition to the default mounting of the directory containing the
    game folder as C: ), because the game won't run without the CD in the
    drive. 
    
    Now when you want to play just run the game through Dfend. If you need to
    make any changes to the DOSBox configuration, you can do so by editing the
    profile. Consider yourself lucky- before DOSBox 0.70 I had to trip all over
    myself to get it working, and when I finally did it was without music. No
    such problems these days.
    
    One additional thing you may want to do is adjust the number of CPU cycles.
    (To do this bring up the profile editor in DFend, and click on the
    "Environment" tab.) This will allow you to speed up or slow down the speed
    at which the game plays. More cycles makes the game go faster. I find about
    8000 cycles to be ideal, but you can adjust to your own taste. You can
    adjust "on the fly" without leaving DOSBox by pressing CTRL-F12 or
    CTRL-F11.
    
    As of this writing, you can find DOSBox at http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/ ,
    and Dfend at http://members.home.nl/mabus/dfend.htm . The 1.02 patch for
    Alien Logic is at Broderbund's tech support website at
    http://www.support.broderbund.com/ .
    
    How to Play
    ===========
    
    Normally I don't bother with hashing out the ins and outs of the interface,
    but in the case of Alien Logic a few areas of the manual are in need of
    clarification. There are several different modes of play in Alien Logic.
    The main mode is exploration/weaving mode, but there are also Cork-Cutting
    and Weaving World minigames, as well as a conversation mode and several
    different kinds of maps. Here's the rundown:
    
    Exploration Mode
    ----------------
    
    Exploration mode is where most of the fun takes place. You'll see a side
    view of your character in an environment of some kind. To move around,
    left-click where you want to go. The screen scrolls horizontally- if you
    walk off the very edge of an area, you'll go either to the next area or
    back to the local area map. If you need to clear a pit or get up onto
    something, you can jump by shift-left-clicking. Some items in the view can
    be picked up or interacted with-to do this, left-click on the item. If
    it's meant to be used with another item in your inventory, a menu will
    come up listing items you can use on it. If you have no clue what it is
    you're looking at, you can get it's name by right-clicking. The name will
    appear in the text box below the view window, as will other important
    information from time to time. One other thing you can do is Tra-Sense.
    Shift-right-click to bathe an small area of the screen in Isho. This has
    the effect of dispelling illusions, revealing hidden items or doors. You
    won't use it much, but it can reveal important things, so when you're in
    a shanthic ruin and something looks fishy, try using your Tra-Sense.
    
    Now let's look below the view window. You'll see the text box, a picture
    of yourcharacter surrounded by three bands of light, a meter consisting
    of rows of orbs, four buttons along the bottom of the screen, and two
    empty spaces- one below the textbox, one to the right of the picture.
    
    The picture is your life meter. The three bands each start off green. As
    you get wounded, they progress to lighter green, then through yellow,
    orange, red, and finally a deep dark red. When all three bands are red,
    game over. The three lines of orbs represent your Isho weaving rate, we'll
    discuss that in Combat Mode. The four buttons each bring up menus in the
    right area. The first button, shaped like a stone face, brings up the game
    menu- this allows you to save, load, or quit to the main menu. A word of
    caution- when you click on a slot to save, the slot will turn green and
    you may think the game has frozen. It hasn't- it's waiting for you to type
    in the name for the save. Do so and press Enter to save. The second button,
    with the image of a flying Dysha, puts you into combat mode. The third,
    featuring a clutter of items, brings up your inventory. Items are divided
    into three catagories- Biotech, Crystals, and Limilates (Herbs), and
    miscellaneous items are kept in the root menu. The fourth menu, with the
    image of your eyes, keeps notes. These are pretty sparse, but are useful
    for remembering shanthic site locations.
    
    Oh yeah, one more thing- pushing ESC will pause the game and ask you if
    you want to quit. If you need to take a break, this is how to do it.
    
    Combat Mode
    -----------
    
    You toggle into and out of combat mode from exploration mode. To do so,
    press the spacebar. You can also click on the second button in exploration
    mode, but as you'll have to go into combat mode on a moment's notice, get
    used to the spacebar. While in combat mode you can use Dyshas, but first
    you have to set up a strategy. When you enter Combat Mode, a display shows
    up beneath the text box showing your currently equipped strategy. This is
    the sequence of Dyshas you'll cast. The red dots mark your defensive dysha,
    the green ones your offensive dyshas. The small light in the corner of the
    offensive dyshas marks where you are in the strategy- The next dysha you
    cast will be the lit one, if it's ready. The green and red dots also
    represent your level with the dysha and how close you are to having it at
    full power. If all the lights are lit, you'll be firing the dysha at full
    power. If one or more is grey, then you'll be firing it at a lower level.
    If all the lights are grey, you can't use the dysha at all. You can change
    to another offensive dysha in the same strategy by clicking on the box.
    
    Back to strategies. In the menu area you'll see a list of Dyshas you can
    use. To change a dysha, click on the name of the new one in the menu. If
    it's a defensive dysha, it will change easily, because you can only have
    one defensive dysha equipped at a time. If it's an offensive dysha, it
    will be added to the strategy in a free slot. If you have no free slot,
    it will replace the dyshain the lit slot. Although you can always see four
    offensive slots, at the start you can only use two of them. You'll get
    more slots later on. You have 10 strategies, each keyed to a different
    function key, F1 through F10. Build a strategy for every situation you
    plan on encountering- although you can technically re-work your strategies
    on the fly, it's impossible to do this while at the same time dealing with
    the enemy.
    
    To cast an offensive dysha, right-click the target. To cast a defensive
    dysha, shift-right-click anywhere. You can move around in combat mode, but
    in an extremely limited fashion- take small steps right and left by
    clicking to the right or left of your character, or take a larger step by
    shift-left-clicking. Don't try to run in combat mode- if you must flee the
    area, go into exploration mode.
    
    An important step to mastering combat is understanding the Isho Rate Meter.
    That's the meter containing the three rows of circles below the life meter.
    It represents the rate at which you weave your dyshas. The more full it is,
    the faster your dyshas charge. It starts at a baseline level. While you're
    in combat mode and not doing anything, it rises steadily until it reaches
    the maximum, represented by the red dots. If you're charging a dysha, it
    will stop and hover around a certain level. If you're charging multiple
    dyshas, it'll go down, as you're putting out Isho faster than you can take
    it in. Whenever you cast a defensive dysha, the meter automatically falls
    a certain amount. What this basically means is, in a difficult battle
    where you're launching a lot of Dyshas, you'll eventually get tired and
    won't be able to weave very fast. You'll probably want to stay in Combat
    mode and take a breather after a tough fight, to make sure you're ready
    for the next one. Your dyshas will remain charged even if you drop out of
    combat mode and go back in later. This is also why Rate Crystals are so
    important- whenever you use one, it increases your maximum level by one
    column and increases your baseline level by a half of a column, meaning
    you can weave faster and get tired less easily. When you exit combat mode,
    your Isho Rate falls back to the baseline. 
    
    Local Map Mode
    --------------
    
    A location map is a small representation of the surrounding area. You're
    the figure surrounded by blue triangles. Click to move around as always.
    Press the button labelled "SCAN" in the lower-right to make every NPC and
    interactable object on the screen "blip". This is very useful when you're
    dealing with outdoor areas with a lot of undergrowth. Colliding with an
    object or NPC puts you into either Dialogue Mode or Exploration mode,
    depending on what exactly it is. It's important to note that, if there
    are potentially-hostile enemies on the Local Area Map, those enemies will
    show up- almost without fail- if you try to dig for items or use other
    "blips"on the same map. In other words, if you want to dig for something
    in a certain area, you'll haveto clear out to enemies first.
    
    World Map Mode
    --------------
    
    The world map is presented as the screen of the Earth-Tec Tracker given
    to you by Salrough in the opening. The red circle in the middle of the
    screen is you. Move around by clicking. You of course can't cross mountains
    or water, though you can sometimes edge and squeeze through little gaps.
    Points of interest are usually displayed as icons on the map, although
    large structures like cities or shanthic ruins often have graphics. When
    you come to one, you'll go into local mapmode. To the right of the
    viewscreen are four indicators. These read proximity of points of interest.
    If one indicator is falling, you're moving away from something. If it's
    rising, you're getting close to something. If it hits the top, you're
    right on top of it. The four indicators signify- from left to right-
    animal life forms (NPCs or enemies), vegetable life forms (limilates or
    incupods), Isho sources (crystals or open warps), and structures (cities,
    houses, or shanthic ruins). Above the indicators is a circle. Click on it
    to display a map of all Jorune. The three buttons here will display known
    warps, known structures, and all known points of interest (including the
    previous two). Click on the circle again to go back to travelling. Beneath
    the viewscreen is your location in coordinates. The first number indicates
    your distance from the west edge of the map- a larger number indicates that
    you're further east. The second indicates your distance from the north edge
    of the map- a larger number indicates you're further south. Finally, the
    button labelled OFF will turn off the tracker, putting you into
    Exploration Mode. This allows you to save or change your dysha strategies.
    Return to the World Map by walking off the screen. 
    
    Dialogue Mode
    -------------
    
    You enter dialogue mode when you encounter a sapient NPC. Pretty
    straightforward- listen to his lines (click to advance if it's moving too
    slow), then click on the response you want to give.
    
    Warp World
    ----------
    
    Warp World appears as a distorted map of Jorune. The dot in the bubble is
    you. Warps are represented by small white lights. If you're not close,
    you wont see a warp, but as you get closer it grows larger. Once you move
    into it, you wind up back at a local area map at the corresponding place.
    When you enter Warp World via a new Cle-Eshtha, you'll see an illuminated
    circle. That's the warp you just opened up. If you enter WarpWorld through
    a new Cle-Eshta and don't see the illuminated circle, you just opened a
    Skyrealm. Look around WarpWorld for a new warp to find it.
    
    Weaving World
    -------------
    
    Weaving World is a subgame that you'll play to learn new dyshas. To enter
    it, visit Sarella at the kerning bay in Ardoth. When you enter Weaving
    World you'll see four dyshas sitting amidst a circular plane. At the
    center of the plane is a dot inside a ring. This represents you. In the
    lower-left corner is a box with a number in it. That's how many weave
    crystals you have remaining. (The first time you enter Weaving World this
    will be zero. Don't worry, you can still drop weave crystals- Sarella's
    helping you out. First time's free, you see.) To gain a new dysha you have
    to draw it to you. To do this, click on the plane. This will drop a weave
    crystal there,where it becomes a gravitational force. In other words, any
    nearby dyshas will be draw towards it, moving faster as they approach and
    eventually settling into an orbit. However, the crystals aren't permanent-
    they disappear eventually, at which point the dysha will either slow it's
    momentum to a crawl, or slingshot away, depending on how it was moving when
    the gravitational force disappeared. Getting a dysha to the center
    requires patience, practice, and a lot of crystals. It can be frustrating,
    too, so be prepared. You may wish to save at the Shambo Shenter before
    trying. Oh, and there's no use going for two dyshas at once- the game will
    only credit you the first.
    
    Cork Cutting
    ------------
    
    Cork Cutting mode is how you create recos. First you need to find an
    incupod- check the Points of Interest. Click on an Incupod to bring up a
    menu, and click the laser scalpel to go into Cork Cutting mode. To start
    cutting, click on one of the corks. These are the colored lines on the
    right- pink on the right, red in the center, purple on the left. Once
    you've loaded a cork, you'll see it on the left display, with strands of
    genetic material floating inside. Note the meter in the center- clicking
    on the strands in the window will move the indicator up one, two, or three
    spaces, depending on the strand's size. If the strand has a black hole in
    the center, it will instead move the indicator DOWN one, two, or three
    places. Each click has a chance to turn one of the green lights
    surrounding the bottom of the meter red, signifying an injury to the cork.
    In they all turn red, the cork is damaged beyond repair and disintegrates. 
    
    Higher quality corks and incupods reduce the chance of an injury with each
    click, allowing you to make more cuts and develop better recos. Pink corks
    and green incupods are low quality. Red corks and incupods are good
    quality. Purple corks and incupods are high quality. Putting pink in purple
    or purple in green has a chance of producing a dead reco even if it's
    suppossed to be useful, so try and match the quality.
    
    The objective is to get the indicator to one of the 9 green bars on the
    meter- this stabilizes the cork into a specific reco, and it goes into
    the incupod, germinating in seconds. However, only four of the nine green
    bars will produce a useful reco- the others produce a useless one that
    dies seconds later. The four recos are-
       Digger- Second from the bottom
       Rejuvenator- Fourth from the bottom
       Miner- Sixth from the bottom
       Surgeon- Eighth from the bottom
    The button labelled "Destroy" will scrap the cork. The button labelled
    "Shutdown" will take you out of cork-cutting mode, scrapping both the
    cork and the incupod. Don't use either if you can avoid it.
    
    Items you'll find
    =================
    
    There are a number of things you'll wind up collecting on your journey.
    Listed here are some of the more common things you'll be using. This list
    does not include items that you'll find only once at a certain point. 
    
    Biotech
       Laser Scalpel
          The laser scalpel is how you make an incision in an incupod. To enter
          Cork Cutting Mode, click on an incupod and selectthe scalpel from
          your inventory.
       Corks
          Corks are the genetic material used along with incupods to create
          recos. Pink corks are low quality, adequate formaking Diggers or
          Rejuvenators but requiring great luck tomake better recos. Red corks
          are good for making Miners, and can also make Surgeons without much
          difficulty. Purple corks can make anything.
       Digger
          The Digger is a very simple reco, resembling a small green triangle
          on legs. Use it over limilate, cork, or crystal patches to retrieve
          the treasures buried beneath the surface. One of these should be the
          first reco you make, but don'tget attached to it. While they're
          useful early in the game when money's tight,as soon as possible
          you'll want to upgrade to a Miner, which dig faster, die later, and
          can dig in desert or ice field.
       Miner
          The Miner is an all-around better bargain than the digger, and with
          good reason. However, it's not easy to make. You get best results
          using red or better corks and pods- you can make one with a green
          pod and pink corks, but it takes luck.
       Rejuvenator
          Rejuvenators are very useful recos- when used, they'll heal all
          wounds of yellow or lower color. Carrying a few of these can help
          you save a bundle on healing limilates. They're pretty easy to make
          and can usually be done with a green pod and pink cork.
       Surgeon
          Every adventurer should carry at least one or two surgeons. They'll
          heal you completely, which is perfect when you've just gotten
          through with an especially obstinant Shantha. However, they're hard
          to make. You pretty much need a purple cork and some luck, and a red
          or purple pod. Even then, it might be easier to just buy one.
    Crystals
       Weave
          Weave crystals are used to learn new Dyshas in WeavingWorld. You
          want as many of these as you can get your handson, at least until
          you have all the Dyshas you need. (See "Weaving World", above for
          more information.)
       Rate
          Rate Crystals are some of the most important items in the game. Use
          one of these and it will increase your maximum and baseline weaving
          rate, allowing you to charge dyshas fasterand with fewer breaks. Go
          out of your way to acquire these.
       Power
          Power crystals are used in conjunction with power sources that you
          find in shanthic ruins. Click on a source and use a crystal to
          activate the source. This will sometimes turn on some device in the
          ruin, and you can also use the source to activate your Isho
          abilities.
    Limilates
       Healing
          Healing limilates, complemented by Rejuvenators, are your main means
          of keeping in fighting condition. Use it and you'll restore a tiny
          bit of health at random from one of the rings on the life meter. Not
          much, but there are so many lying around in limilate patches that you
          can almost always use them in bulk.
       Scragger Repellant
          Very useful- turn Scragger from a major annoyance to target practice.
          They'll still jump at you and try to bite, but instead of latching
          on, they'll lose their grip and fall harmlessly to the ground. Always
          use one before trying to clear out a Scragger nest.
       Isho Invisibility
          Use this and for a short time you'll become invisible to Evids. Evids
          aren't very tough, but later in the game when you have to fight
          several at a time, it might be easier to use one of these and sneak
          past.
       Poison Blood
          After you use a Poison Blood limilate, every creature that bites you
          for a short time will die instantly. This is pretty much the only
          practical way to kill a Corondon before he kills you, so pick these
          up whenever you can.
       Daij
          Daij, as far as I can see, serves no purpose in the game. Well, it
          does serve a purpose of a sort- you can sell it to the marketplace
          in Ardoth for cash. A decent source of money, if you need it.
       Shirm-eh
          Shirm-eh is useless to humans, but priceless to Ramian. You can
          exploit that. (See "The Ramian Merchant" subplot to learn how.)
    Gemlinks
       Money. Don't leave home without it.
    Shanthic Artifacts
       These are small blue pyramids that you'll find in shanthic ruins.
       They serve no purpose, but you can sell them at the marketplace in
       Ardoth or, more profitably, to Tabor the Bronth historian.
    Shanthic Keys
       Small spherical/cylindrical objects that open shanthic doors. Yep.
    Warp-Out Crundorra
       Use this in a ruin and it will take you immediately back to the local 
       area map. This is very useful if you wind up backing yourself into a
       corner. You start off with two, and over the course of the game you'll
       find others lying around. You can also buy them at the Ardoth
       marketplace.
    Sarceen
       A Sarceen looks like a red visor or necklace. (In fact, it's meant to be
       touched to the temples, but never mind that.) When you use it, it will
       teach you a new dysha or ability instantly, without having to go through
       the fuss of WeavingWorld. Very, very useful- keep your eyes open for
       these.
    
    Dyshas You'll Learn
    ===================
    
    As a muadra, you're not terribly good with martial weapons, but you can
    fight with Dyshas, woven from Jorune's ambient Isho energy. Offensive
    Dyshas are orbs fired at your enemies, while defensive Dyshas protect you
    with a barrier. There are also Isho Abilities, which have genrally
    non-combative uses. They're listed here because they're acquired in the
    same way. The main way to acquire new Dyshas and abilities is to learn
    then in Weaving World, but occassionally you can also find Sarceens that
    will teach you a Dysha instantly- keep your eyes open for these, they'll
    make things a whole lot easier. Dyshas have levels- if you learn a Dysha
    you already know, it will go up to the next level, becoming more powerful. 
    Most Dyshas have three levels. The Dyshas available to you are:
    
    Power Orb/Lightning Orb
       Your main attack. Hit the enemy with it and do damage. You start off
       with Power Orb,and it improves to level 2 and then 3. Lightning Orb is
       basically Power Orb levels 4-6. With two Dysha slots, one of them
       should always be Power/Lightning Orb, unless you're trying to pull a
       really esoteric strategy. Normally you'll want to fire these one at a
       time, so that they can recharge quickly and without hurting your Isho
       Rate too much, but if you think you can take down your enemy right now,
       you can machine-gun them too. Power Orb is a simple orange orb,
       Lightning Orb takes the form of a blue burst of ball lightning.
    Suspension Orb
       When this small orb strikes a foe, it expands to a large orb and
       levitates-with them inside- until it hits the roof and pops. Not very
       useful indoors, as it hits the roof real quick, but it has valuable
       uses. The best tactic to use with this dysha is to catch an enemy
       inside one, then smack him with a Power/Lightning Orb. This will knock
       him far back- usually out of range of an easy counter attack. You can
       use this strategy early in the game to slowly whiddle down
       capsule-throwers. Suspension Orb looks like a large bubble.
    Power Hold
       Power Hold resembles a bunch of yellow rings surrounding a small
       central orb. When it hits its target, it paralyzes them by binding
       them with several rings. Crugar and Shanthas love to use this on you-
       it'll hold you in place and let them beat the snot out of you with
       Lightning Orbs. You can also use it effectively, however it's a bit
       trickier because it takes a long time to weave and wears off fairly
       quickly at low levels. It's really not useful until you have it at
       level 2 or 3 and a good weave rate, as well as a third or fourth
       offensive dysha slot to help you capitalize on a hit. In the early game
       Suspension Orb is much better.
    Isho Drain
       Isho Drain is a deep black orb that takes a chuck out of the target's
       Isho Rate. I think.See, it certainly takes away YOUR Isho when you get
       hit with one, but I'm not sure the enemies work on the same system as
       you in Alien Logic, which would make this utterly useless to you. Even
       if it does work, I don't see how it would be more useful then just
       firing Lightning Orbs at your enemy. But, if you're up for something
       different, feel free to give it a try. Be aware that shanthas love to
       machine-gun you with this, which can make for some annoying battles.
    Crater
       Crater is a large fireball that explodes on contact and does a lot of
       damage. However, it takes so long to weave that it's very seldom
       practical. It has one very important use, though: it's able to
       penetrate defensive dyshas. This makes it useful against especially
       cheap Crugar who use Shield constantly. Crater only has one level, as
       opposed to three like most other dyshas.
    Fire Touch
       Fire Touch is a defensive dysha that appears as a small flame pointing
       sideways. Use it, and you burst into flames for a moment. It basically
       has one use- to knock Scragger off of you. Useful, but frankly I don't
       much like it. It will sometimes take several uses to actually knock the
       Scragger off, and it burns up Isho fast. I recommend Scragger Protection
       limilates instead. Fire Touch only has one level.
    Shield
       Shield is a defensive dysha in the form of a blue square. Use it and
       you'll be covered for a few seconds in a white light that will stop any
       incoming dyshas. (Not physical attacks like capsules, though.) Useful
       when you have nothing else, but other defensive dyshas are better.
    Reflect
       This white orb is a defensive dysha with offensive capabilities. It
       functions the same as Shield, but instead of a white light that blocks
       dyshas, this is a blue light that bounces them back towards your
       opponent. Useful in battles against Crugar, where you have to keep the
       pressure on to have any hope of breaking through their shields. Not so
       useful against other foes- Shanthas will re-reflect it, putting a strain
       on your Isho since you'll have to keep blocking it. Evids have such a
       small vertical profile that they're unlikely to be hit by the
       reflection.
    Vampire
       A red defensive dysha that at first appears to be like Shield, but
       which has a bonus- whenever you block a dysha with Vampire, you absorb
       some Isho from it and your Isho Rate increases. The amount of Isho you
       absorb seems to depend on the level of Vampire you're using. Very
       useful against Evids and Shanthas, especially later in the game.
    
    There are also Isho Abilities, which you learn the same way as Dyshas and
    you activate at Power Sources in shanthic temples. They only last so long,
    so make sure you're not in danger when they wear off. You learn Isho
    Abilities the same way as dyshas- through Weaving World or sarceens.
    In Weaving World they appear as small circles with four colored triangles
    extending from them.
    
    Lava Walk
       Walk on Lava. Simple, no?
    Feather Fall
       With Feather Fall you don't take falling damage when you fall long
       distances. There areonly one or two places in the game where you have
       to do this, but when you do it will save your life.
    Regenerate
       Use this ability and you'll be covered in a purple light that will heal
       you point by point for a few minutes. Not necessary, but very helpful
       in ruins where you face a lot of combat.
    Morph Evid
       You can't get this ability in Weaving World, you have to find a
       specific sarceen. Once you have it, several areas of the game become
       much easier, or open up further. What this ability does is transform
       you into an Eye Evid. While in Evid form you can fly- even up through
       broken ceilings- and Evids will be friendly. (Shanthas will see right
       through the disguise, though.) However, you don't have access to your
       entire dysha list, so don't start a fight. You'll change back after a
       few minutes. While in Evid form you can also talk to Eye Evids, though
       they don't have anything to say.
    
    Enemies You'll Fight
    ====================
    
    There are several enemies you'll face during the game, and they fall into
    roughly three catagories- critters, evids, and sapients (i.e. intelligent,
    bipedal life-forms.) It's importantto understand that there are no
    experience points in Alien Logic and sapients very rarely drop anything,
    so it will usually be to your advantage to play passive, either by avoiding
    foes or talking your way out of fights. But sometimes they just don't
    listen to reason. Small enemies like Beagre and Scragger appear in groups
    of 3 or 4. Larger creatures you'll fight one-on-one.
    
    Beagre
       Beagre are obnoxious little brown critters that seem to infest every
       corner of Jorune. They travel in groups of three or four typically, and
       they're nothing more than target practice- level 2 Power Orb kills them
       with a single blow, and even early on they're not much of a threat.
       You'll occassionally have to clear them out of a limilate patch, other
       then that you can ignore them. There's a bounty on them in Ardoth, but
       it's hardly worth it.
    Scraggar
       Scragger are very irritating Green Lizards who's attack it to jump
       toward you and grab you in their teeth. If they grab on, They won't let
       go for several seconds, and you'll be taking small bits of damage all
       along. You can drive them off with a Fire Touch, or just avoid
       encountering them. However, if you're willing to take the annoyance,
       you can also hunt them- Scragger Protection limilates can make this
       easy, and they'll fetch a decent price in Ardoth. When you fight
       Scragger, the best tactic is to launch a dysha at them at the peak of
       their jump.
    Pibber
       Pibber are small, fat, tan creatures that stirke me as nothing so much
       as bunnies with eyestalks. They're harmless, but if you capture them
       alive (click them while they're on the ground,) you can trade them to
       trarch or to the woffen beaster in Ardoth.
    Mandare
       Mandare are large, bloated critters with huge long necks. Their attack
       is to snap at you after maneuvering close. They can take a lot of
       punishment and will often get a few hits in before you kill them, but
       they're not especially difficult. When you encounter a mandare, your
       first move should be to walk all the way to your end of the area. Once
       you've put distance between you and them, drop into Combat Mode and
       start firing off Power/Lightning Orbs. This may seem lowbrow, but
       they're too big for Suspension Orb or Power Hold, so there you are.
       After killing a mandare, always take time to slice it open and check
       the stomach contents.
    Corondon
       Corondon are huge creatures resembling eyeless dragons. They're
       impossible to beat in combat. When I say "impossible", I don't mean
       "doable but annoyingly tedious", or "you need to be really strong", or 
       "you need the right strategy". I mean it can't be done. I've tried many
       times. They close with you with lightning speed and can take you from
       full health to game over in three attacks. The only practical way to
       kill a Corondon is to use a Poison Blood Limilate, so that after they
       bite you, they fall over dead. This is why Poison Blood Limilates are
       so important.
    Eye Evid
       These floating evids will be your most consistant foe over the course
       of the game- you'll fight them in the first ruins you explore and will
       still be fighting them up until the final battle. They protect shanthic
       ruins, and occassionally aboveground crystal patches as well. Their
       arsenal consists of Suspension Orb and Lightning Orb, plus Vampire for
       defense. They will also occassionally close in and bite you. They're
       not especially hard,but it may take timing to sneak your shots in
       through their Vampires. Always block the Suspension Orb- if you get
       caught, he'll hit you with several Lightning Orbs while you're helpless.
       Whenever you beat an Eye Evid, it'll drop a Power Crystal.
    Sphere Evid
       Sphere Evids are weaker then Eye Evids, but also quicker. They zip
       around dodging your shots or bouncing them back with reflect, and
       they'll fire back with Suspension Orbs and Power Orbs. The strategy is
       basically the same as with the big eyes, but you have to pay a little
       closer attention to them, as they can blindside you with an unexpected
       shot or surprise relfect. They also drop Power Crystals when beaten.
    Spider Evid
       Harmless and don't drop anything. Ignore them.
    Slug Evid/Blob Evid
       These two evids are different sides of the same coin- they crawl
       toward you and attack when really close. Not a problem- you can almost
       always blow them up before they reach you. Slug Evids are slightly
       weaker and drop Weave Crystals, while Blob Evids drop the standard
       Power Crystal when beaten.
    Trarch
       Trarch are blue guys with big clubs. If you watch yourself around them,
       you really only have to fight one over the course of the game. When you
       do, be advised that they only have a short-range attack, so they're
       pretty easy. The mandare strategy of getting distance and then wailing
       on them should work, or you can try the Suspension Orb knockback tactic.
    Cleash/Scarmis/Ramian
       These three enemies all fight pretty much the same way- they hang back
       and throw grenade-like capsules at you. Sometimes, when that doesn't
       work, they'll close for a short-range attack. Only hit points and
       capsule strength seem variable, honestly. Early in the game, the best 
       strategy is to use Suspension Orbs to keep them at a distance. Later, 
       when you have a higher weave rate and more dysha slots, the strategy
       will become hit 'em fast, hit 'em hard. Scarmis, by the way, are
       naturally docile- unless there are Cleash around, there's no reason to
       attack them.
    Crugar
       Crugar are freakin' annoying. They really like Lightning Orbs, but 
       what's worse they really, really, REALLY like Shield. In a battle with
       a crugar, he'll have it up something like 90% of the time, making it
       really hard to sneak in a good shot. On offesne, they generally throw
       out lots of Lighning Orbs, but they can also use Power Hold, and watch
       out for that. If a crugar catches you in a Power Hold, you'll take a
       barrage of Lightning Orbs that will probably kill you. I find the best
       way to deal with them is to bounce back their attacks with Reflect,
       while adding some Lightning Orbs of your own to keep the pressure on.
       Occassionally a crugar will get caught in his own reflected Power Hold.
       When that happens, pounce and hit him with as many dyshas as you can
       before he snaps out of it. You can also try blasting through their
       shields with Crater, but this is risky- Crater takes a long time to
       charge up, during which you'll be vulnerable. Defensive dyshas will
       help, but not when the Crugar decides to close ranks and use his claws
       instead.
    Shantha
       Shanthas are the toughest enemies in the game. (Corondons are more
       difficult if you don't know the trick, but simple if you do.) They use
       Power Holds and Lightning Orbs in a fashion similar to Crugar, but are
       also fond of using Isho Drains to render you helpless. They
       occassionally throw Craters as well. Block them- they break through 
       shields, but still do less damage when they hit one. Their defensive 
       dysha of choice is Reflect. You can thwart it by aiming at their heads.
       Since they're larger then you, your dyshas will often go over your
       head when they bounce back. Since they don't throw up shields
       constantly like the Crugar, you have more flexibility in your strategy.
       I recommend Power Holds followed up with as many Lightning Orbs as you
       can manage. However, shanthas are still pretty tough, and I recommend
       avoidance tactics if at all possible.
    
    Exploring Shanthic Ruins
    ========================
    
    In many ways the best part of the game is the shanthic ruins you'll come
    across. You'll explore these looking for valuables, mainly Cle-Eshtas.
    Most are guarded by evids, some also by Shanthas.There are, additionally,
    some obstacles and devices you'll come across. 
    
    Elevators/Moving Platforms
       Yeah, Alien Logic is partially a platform game. Frequently you'll have
       to jump onto moving platforms, either to ride an elevator from one level
       to another or to ride a horizontal platform across a pit or chasm.
       Sometimes you'll find an inactive elevator- these are usually turned on
       by using a nearby Power Source.
    Maps
       Maps look like large empty panels on the walls. If they ever actually
       depicted the floor plans of the ruins, those lines have long since worn
       away. However, small orbs representing power sources remain. Each orb
       on a map represents the location of a power source in the ruin. Yellow
       ones are active. Not terribly useful, but they can give you an idea of
       the general layout of a ruin.
    Tablets
       You'll sometimes find pedestals that hold stone tablets. These tablets
       contain shanthic writings. Read them for information- usually about the
       ruins you find them in.
    Power Sources
       A power source is a small yellow and gold device on the wall, with a
       hole in the center to place a Power Crystal in. They transmit energy
       around the ruins, so turning one on will often activate an otherwise
       inactive device, like an elevator. You can also activate Isho abilities
       at an active power source.
    Green/Red Doors
       Ah, the locked door- enemy of adventurers since the beginning of time.
       Green doors can be bashed down by using Power Orb or Lightning Orb, but
       to open a red door you'll need the corresponding Shanthic Key.
    Isho Lifts
       An Isho Lift is a light blue column of light that, when entered, will
       move you either up or down to it's endpoint. It doesn't matter where
       you enter an Isho Lift, you'll always ride it right to the end. Keep in
       mind that Isho Lifts are one way- although it's rare for one to drop you
       off in an unescapable situation, you might want to save before entering
       any.
    Power Floors
       Power floors are small circles on the ground, looking similar to
       de-activated Isho Lifts but more solid light. While you're standing on a
       Power Floor, your Isho Rate shoots up to the maximum. Very useful when
       tough foes are around.
    Sentinel Evids
       Sentinel Evids are small brownish floating creatures that block your
       way. They're immune to dyshas and on approaching one you'll be pushed
       back by a storm of Isho Drain. This won't hurt, but it weakens your
       weave rate and prevents you from passing the Sentinel. The only way to
       get past a Sentinel Evid is to turn it off. This is done via a music
       box, which you'll always find close to a Sentinel Evid. A music box is
       a device that hangs from the ceiling. If you click it, it will make a
       sound and usually turn the sentinel off.
    Cle-Eshtas
       Cle-Eshtas are your main goal in most shanthic ruins. They look like a
       blue crystal on a partially-closed pedestal. Use one and it will take
       you immediately to WarpWorld and open a new warp.
    
    Mandare Bellies
    ===============
    
    Whenever you kill a Mandare, you can click on it's neck to slice open the
    belly and see what's inside. At one point this will be the focus of a very
    important subplot, but it's worth doing as a general rule. You can find a
    great many things inside these creatures. Some are useless, but others
    will be very helpful. Among the things I've found:
    
    three pink corks and an assortment of human bones
    a red cork
    a wicker box containing two weave crystals and two power crystals
    an empty keeper rod
    a gemlink
    two healing limilates and a partially digested reco digger
    a decomposed thivin
    17 gemlinks
    1 power crystal and a mostly digested pibber
    a large club and a blue hand
    a power crystal
    a warp-out crundorra
    22 gemlinks and a large quantity of human bones
    a large number of bones and a few tufts of crugar fur
    a suit of thailerian armor
    two barely digested beagre
    8 weave crystals and 3 gemlinks
    pibber juice
    
    Of these, the most important by far is the Thailerian Armor, which you
    can't get anywhere else. This reduces the damage you'll take. (By how much
    I'm not sure- Alien Logic's injury system is somewhat vague.)
    
    So what am I suppossed to do?
    =============================
    
    Alien Logic is a very, very open-ended game, which is kind of a polite
    way of saying it doesn't give you much direction. Your basic goals are
    simple- get strong and find the bad guy. The answer to both is to explore.
    Walk around Jorune and see what there is to see. While you're walking,
    keep your eyes open for two things in particular- Crystal Fields and
    Shanthic Ruins. Crystal Fields are important because you can find crystals
    (duh), which are important for increasing your skills. Shanthic Ruins are
    places where you'll find Cle-Eshthas to learn new warp locations, as well
    as items of use, some very powerful. 
    
    Some general advise:
    -Talk your way out of trouble whenever possible. As noted before, enemies
       rarely drop items and don't give experience, so you have no reason to
       risk dying if you can avoid it.
    -Visit Salrough often. He'll often come up with new Shanthic sites for
       you to go looking for, and is crucial to several subplots.
    -Power Crystals have limited use- don't go out of your way to amass a
       stockpile.
    -The value of money is arguable- you can buy a lot of supplies in Ardoth,
       potentially making the game easier, but you can also find a lot of
       stuff just by exploring.
    -If you do need money, you can usually get some by selling Shanthic
       Artifacts or hunting Beagre or Scragger, but if you find some Incupods
       you don't need, you can also go into the Biotech business, turning corks
       into recos and selling them at a profit.
    -If you have any Warp Crystals at all, you have plenty.
    -Save you Poison Blood limilates for Corondon.
    -Rate Crystals are extremely powerful.
    
    ***************
    The Walkthrough
    ***************
    
    Alien Logic has an old-school plot- it really only becomes complicated at 
    a few key points, notably the beginning and the end. For most of the game,
    you're just doing your thing. Hence, there are three distinct chapters- the
    first hour or so of gameplay covers your awakening in Tan-Iricid and your
    journey to and exploration of the city of Ardoth. There's a lot of
    conversation here, learning the basics of gameplay, background of the
    world and so forth. The second part is something like 95% of the game, and
    deals with you wandering Jorune seeking the power you'll need to defeat
    the Red Shantha. And the third is your journey to Delsha and the final
    battle.
    
    Opening: Journey to Ardoth
    ==========================
    
    The Mountain Crown
    ------------------
    
    After an intro sequence covering the history of humans and shanthas,
    you'll find yourself talking to a thriddle. He'll ask you your name- it
    may seem like the game has locked up when he does, but don't worry. Just
    type in your characters' name- I used "Jacob", because it's a good name.
    The thriddle will then introduce himself as Salrough Gomo, the head of the
    Mountain Crown, and give you the backstory of the game. Briefly, a bad guy
    named Dytra-Al-Desti, the Red Shantha,has kidnapped your village, carting
    off everyone in stasis devices called keeper-rods. A Shantha called
    Sha-Imsa tried to save your rod, but he lost it and it was four years until
    the thriddle found and released you. So, you've got to save your neighbors
    and stop whatever evil scheme Dytra-Al-Desti is cooking up. Salrough
    recommends you start by heading to Ardoth, where you'll find your
    benefactor Sha-Imsa and hopefully a kerning bay where you can learn
    Dyshas. He also knows some shanthic sites you should look into, once
    you've gotten yourself ready. Get as much information as you can out of
    him, then he'll call a young thriddle named Hilder No-Trid to escort you
    to the warp to Ardoth. You'll drop out of conversation mode into
    exploration mode. Take some time to familiarize yourself with the
    controls, then head off-screen to the left.
    
    You'll wind up in a local area view of the Mountain Crown, with thriddle
    milling about. Talk to them- noone has any pertinant information, but
    they're quite amusing. When you come back later, you'll see a stationary
    thriddle standing by the door in the northeast corner. His name is Limid
    Lo Obbo, and he can tell you a lot about limilates. Exit via the bottom
    of the screen and you'll find yourself on the world map with a view of
    Tan-Iricid. The moving creature is Nilder. Follow him to the local warp.
    When you get there you'll note Nilder preparing to run for his life, and
    the beagre milling around. If you want, practice combat mode on the beagre.
    It won't calm Nilder any, but you'll be able to collect the beagre to sell
    for a few bucks later. 
    
    The Warp will take you into Warp World. Note that there's a small light
    just to the northeast of your current location. Walk into it and you'll
    find yourself in the nation of Burdoth.
    
    Ardoth
    ------
    
    You arrive in a field outside Ardoth. There's a bronth walking around.
    Talk to him- he'll gripe that you're trampling his crops, and also convey
    some useful information about Burdoth and Ardoth. Exit to the world map.
    You'll find Ardoth just to the south. Seargent Brontin, a retired military
    man, guards the gate. He'll let you pass without trouble, and he can tell
    you about the history of Ardoth, the Ramian and Shirm-eh. He'll also point
    you towards Tabor and the Shambo Shenter. You'll meet Brontin at the gate
    every time you come to Ardoth, and sometimes he'll let you know about
    important events going on in the city.
    
    Ardoth will be your central base of operations- whenever you need to
    re-supply or learn new dyshas, you'll be coming back here. So, let's
    familiarize ourselves with the place. We'll start from the enterance, and
    go in a generally counter-clockwise direction. First note above and below
    you are two NPCs. The lower one is a Crugar who will attack you- leave him
    alone. Above you is a helpful thriddle who knows about BioTech and mentions
    Daclish LeClur. His travelogue is boring as hell, though. If you remember
    what Salrough said, your first objective should be Sha-Imsa's house, just
    east of the city gate. (The blue dots indicate enterable houses, but you
    knew that, right?) He's not happy to see you, for reasons he'll explain.
    He's liable to kick you out at some point- march right back in and keep at
    him until he agrees to help you. He'll give some clarity to your quest,
    explaining about shanthic ruins, Warp World, Weaving World, and Isho
    Crystals. He can't take you to Weaving World, however- for that you'll
    need to find a kerning bay.
    
    Keep going down the road to the east and enter the building on the right.
    This is the healer. He offers three levels of healing. First Aid cures any
    wounds up to the light green level, changing them back to the healthy dark
    green. Medication cures orange and lesser wounds, and surgery will heal
    you completely. I find the healer to be quite useless- healing limilates
    are plentiful, reco rejuvenators are easy to make, and you can make a reco
    surgeon or two for emergencies- but if you need him, he's there. Directly
    north of the healer is the Shambo Shenter. Fighting is forbidden, but you
    can duck in here at any time to go into exploration mode, allowing you to
    rework your strategies or save your game. You can also chat with whoever's
    sitting at the table- it's one of several random people. The most important
    is the Ramian, who launches a profitable subplot. Across the street is a
    Corastin who will buy dead Beagre, Scragger, and Pibber. The prices are
    low, but it's easy money if you ever need it. However, Pibber are worth
    more alive if you take them to the next guy on our itinerary- to the east,
    at the end of the road, is a woffen trapper. He's a braggart, but he knows
    a lot about the critters you'll encounter- most notably, mandare often
    swallow their victims' valuables and corodon are "Death Machines". Ask
    him about pibber to get the offer to buy any live ones you come across.
    North of this is the ferry, which can take you to Dobre, but leave it for
    now. 
    
    From the center of town, go northwest and bear west until you come to a
    circular building with a pointy roof. This is the kerning bay, but on
    talking to the owner, Sarella, you may mistake it for a cathouse or a
    hippies' den. Endure the eye-rolling dialogue and let her take you to
    Weaving World. The first time is free and Sarella will loan you all the
    crystals you need, so go for one of the far-off ones. I usually get Power
    Orb level 2, but if you plan on hunting Scraggerfor cash, Flame Touch may
    also be a good idea. When you come back later, Sarella will also be willing
    to explain a few things about dyshas and dysha combat to you.
    
    To the north of the kerning bay you'll see five scattered dots representing
    the marketplace. From the merchants you can buy and sell corks, limilates,
    recos, and crystals, as well as selling shanthic artifacts and buying
    warp-out crundorra. Each merchant will also tell you a little about what
    he sells. West of the marketplace is a woffen walking around. He has no
    information, but the conversation is good for a laugh. 
    
    Finally, north of the wandering woffen is the lair of Daclish LeClur, which
    will be the focal point of our first subplot. 
    
    Dealing with Daclish
    --------------------
    
    As Sha-Imsa warned you, Daclish is a collosal jerk- not only won't he talk
    to you, he'll have his bodyguard rough you up and toss you out into the
    street. (You take no health damage from this- just a flesh wound, I guess.)
    However, notice that after this incident a new dot appears near the big
    building on the south side of town. Go over there, and you'll run into
    someone who can help. After getting her advice, head back to Daclish and...
    he'll get pissed off and throw you out again. What a prick. Go back to the
    big building and your friend will decide to play hardball. Next time you
    go back to Daclish, he'll be quite a bit more agreable give you what
    you're looking for- a cork-cutting kit, laser scalpel, and 3 pink corks.
    Go back to your friend and thank her.
    
    Incidentally, if you go to the large building again, you'll learn that
    Daclish has made complaints to your friend and turned her against you.
    Grrr. Well, no big deal- you won't need to deal with either of them for
    the rest of the game. 
    
    Now that we know what's what in Ardoth, it's time to begin our adventure
    in earnest. Head back to the Shambo Shenter to get ready, and then it's
    off to gate, and onwards to the wilds- and adventure!
    
    Midgame: Wanderings
    ===================
    
    From here on you basically go where you want. The first thing you should
    probably do is get a reco digger- there are a few incupod patches in
    Burdoth, so get to it. Once you have that, it's all in your hands. Look
    around for crystal patches, and hunt down the ruins Salrough told you
    about. Not the entire world is open to you from the start- you'll need to
    complete subplots to open up some key areas, and some enemies will be too
    tough for you until you get more powerful. If you ever need direction,
    Salrough can often give you leads on Cle-Eshta locations and other
    subplots. As you'll eventually learn from Salrough, the endgame will become
    available once you've found and used twenty-five Cle-Eshtas.
    
    Exploring Jorune
    ----------------
    
    The following are profiles of each region of Jorune. They're listed in the
    approximate order you'll encounter them if you follow the plot, but the 
    game is free-roaming, so feel free to go off book. Most especially, the 
    crystal patches make it a good idea to explore Gilthaw as soon as you can, 
    rather then right at the end. I understand that not everyone has the 
    manual with its map, so I'll do my best to describe just where each region
    is. Additionally, you can look up a specific point of interest by it's
    coordinates. However, the coordinates the tracker gives you are sometimes
    off by a point or two, so don't try and make a script to find these sites
    for you- once you get there, you'll be able to eyeball what you're looking 
    for. I've tried to include all points of interest on this list, but Jorune 
    can be vast, and it is possible I've missed something. The points are 
    organized by clumps- in each region, the first clump is creatures, then 
    limilates, incupods, crystals, and finally points of especial importance, 
    such as ruins. Ruins and subplots have detailed walkthroughs listed in the 
    following sections of this document. This list excludes a few areas on 
    the map that you'll visit only during the endgame.
    
    Burdoth
    +++++++
    
    Burdoth is the most prosperous realm of Jorune, a lush land of forests and
    fields crowned by the capital city of Ardoth. Your adventure will start
    in earnest here, after some time exploring Ardoth and the Mountain Crown.
    There's a mountain range seperating the east end of Burdoth from the west
    end- get around it at either the south end or the north end. The Gauss
    Valley- which runs through the mountains and connects northwest and
    southwest Burdoth- is well worth exploring.Be advised that the extreme
    south of Burdoth, bordering the East Trinnu Jungle Lands, is patrolled by
    cleash. Avoid them- they'll fight you, and you'll get nothing out of it,
    except maybe dead.
    
    To reach Burdoth:
       Warp at 216,167 (open at start)
       North from East Trinnu Jungle Lands
       West from Heridoth

       212,179- Ruin- Dwelling of Ana Ci-Eshta
    
    Khodre Island
    +++++++++++++
    
    This is an island sitting on the lake that seperates North Khodre from
    South Khodre. It's tiny, you can almost fit the entire thing on one tracker
    screen, but there are some useful crystal deposits and a ruin here. You'll
    likely reach it early on after exploring Gal-Imesti.
    
    To reach Khodre Island:

    Tan-Iricid
    ++++++++++
    
    The Island of Tan-Iricid is home to the Mountain Crown, the largest library
    on Jorune and the home of the Thriddle. You start the game here, but almost
    immediately you're shuffled off to Ardoth. You'll return frequently to
    confer with Salrough about new shanthic sites and occassionally other
    issues. 
    
    To reach Tan-Iricid:
       Warp at 170,207 (open at start)

       172,204- Mountain Crown (see above)
    
    Heridoth
    ++++++++
    
    Heridoth is a fertile peninsula of trees and mountain that lies next door
    to Burdoth, across a body of water to the east of Ardoth. Although
    infested with Beagre, the region nonetheless has some things worth seeing,
    most notably the ruins of Ma-Eshira.
    
    To reach Heridoth:
       East from Burdoth (path between Ardoth and southern mountains)
       North from East Trinnu Jungle Lands

    Island of Health
    ++++++++++++++++
    
    This is another tiny island, just off the coast of Burdoth. It's small and
    not especially interesting, but there's a treasure trove of Healing
    limilates underground.
    
    To reach :
       Warp from 218,180 (from 218,180 in Heridoth)
    
    Of interest:

       216,149- 3 Healing, 3 Scragger Protection
       214,147- 5 Healing, 1 Poison Blood
    
    East Trinnu Jungle Lands
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    The East Trinnu Jungle Lands are an area of very dense rainforest (i.e.
    dark green) south of Burdoth. These lands are inhabited by the insectlike
    Cleash, who aren't very bright, civilized, or friendly. You can try to
    talk to them, but as you don't speak Cleash and they don't seem to care,
    it'll just mean a fight. You don't get anything for fighting Cleash, so
    you'll want to avoid them most of the time. However, if cleash are
    inhabiting an area that you plan to be mining, you may want to clear them
    out first. They might interrupt your mining and make you fight them off,
    and if so your recos will likely get caught in the crossfire. 
    
    To reach East Trinnu Jungle Lands:
       South from Burdoth
       South from Heridoth
       East from Thantier

          Voligire, Corondon Island, Lundere)
       201,187- Ruin- Besieged Ruin (Cle-Eshta to Gilthaw)
    
    Abandoned Island
    ++++++++++++++++
    
    This is an abandoned island south of Sillipus, and there's nothing here.
    I'm serious, not a single things to be found except the warp. Weird.
    Anyway, you can ignore this completely if you wish.
    
    To reach Abandoned Island:
       Warp at 218,246 (from 215,187 in East Trinnu Jungle Lands)
    
    Corondon Island
    +++++++++++++++
    
    This island off the coast of Temauntro is the first place you'll
    encounter the deadly Corondon. Fortunately the main attraction here, the
    crystal fields, are nowhere near the Corondon hangouts.
    
    To reach Corondon Island:
       Warp at 68,92 (from 215,187 in East Trinnu Jungle Lands)

    Anasan
    ++++++
    
    South of the Jungles of Trinnu and north west of the Island of Sillipus
    is a temperate forest realm. You'll find a warp here early in the game, or
    you can just hike across the East Trinnu Jungle Lands to get there. It's a
    small region, but worth exploring for the limilate patches,a Cle-Eshta,
    and the ruin of Sha-Yesh.
    
    To reach Anasan:
       Warp at 205,197 (From 200,173 in Burdoth)
    
    Of interest:
       213,199- 11 Beagre
       200,198- 2 Cleash
    
       213,202- 8 Beagre, 6 Healing
       213,205- 6 Healing, 6 Isho Invisibility
    
       209,205- Cle-Eshta to Central Dobre
       208,200- Ruin- Sha-Yesh (Cle-Eshta to South Temauntro)
    
    Central Dobre
    +++++++++++++
    
    Although expansive, Dobre is well worth exploring. The Bronth natives are
    friendly, but mainly have no useful information, except to point you to
    the way out. The main reason to come here is to visit Tabor, the Bronth
    historian who lives north of the ferry. He'll buy shanthic artifacts from
    you (he offers a much better price then you'll get in Ardoth) and will
    help you with certain subplots. Additionally, he knows the history of
    Jorune like the back of his paw, and can provide lots of backstory- it's
    well worth your while to talk to him on the subject.
    
    Dobre is so big that I've divided it into three sections. The central area
    is where the Ferry and Tabor's house are. South and east of Tabor's place
    is a pass that will allow you access to the mountainous south part of the
    region. Follow the mountains west from Tabor and stick to them as they
    twist around, and you'll eventually find a pass that leads you to North
    Dobre.
    
    To reach Central Dobre:
       Warp at 224,156 (from 209,205 in Anasan)
       From Burdoth via Ferry in Ardoth (arrives at 241,160)
       South from North Dobre (mountain pass around 225,140)
       West from South Dobre (mountain pass around 248,150)

       243,148- 4 Healing
    
       241,160- Ferry to Burdoth (arrives just north of Ardoth)
       245,148- Tabor's House
    
    South Dobre
    +++++++++++
    
    This area is unremarkable but deserving of some exploration. If you're a
    hunter or just like beating up critters, there's a lot of stuff to do in
    South Dobre. In addition to a lot of Beagre and Scragger, you can find
    Pibber (capture them alive!), and a few Mandare. If you're not, the trip
    is still worthwhile- you can find crystals, incupods, and a Cle-Eshta.
    
    To reach South Dobre:
       Warp at 280,188 (from 173,177 in Thantier)
       East from Central Dobre (mountain pass around 248,150)

    North Dobre
    +++++++++++
    
    North Dobre is pretty sparse, with few points of interest. Some of the
    Bronth around here are looking for a Crugar. If you track down that
    selfsame Crugar, you might be able to coax some information about the
    Scrolls of Iscin out of him. There's also a Cle-Eshta near the Lundere
    border that takes you to an island in the south seas with some worthwhile
    items. The only other feature here of real importance are the mountains,
    which constantly block your path and force you to take detours. (This makes
    getting an accurate list of points of interest difficult- while I'm
    confident the below list is comprehensive, I can't be completely sure I
    didn't miss something.)
    
    The border between North Dobre and Lundere is vague. I decided to draw the
    line at the east end of the peninsula near the skyrealm, along longitude
    line 263, but that's arbitrary, honestly.
    
    To reach North Dobre:
       Warp at 241,113 (from 193,198 in Thantier)
       warp at 261,119 (from 93,143 in South Temauntro)
       North from Central Dobre (mountain pass around 225, 140)

    South Island
    ++++++++++++
    
    This small island in an archipelago off Drail is a treasure trove. You'll
    find incupods and corks- including some purples- and some worthwhile
    crystal desposits, including 2 Rate Crystals! Definately worth the trek
    through Dobre to find the Cle-Eshta.

    Lundere
    +++++++
    
    Relative to the region of Dobre to the west, there's a whole lot of stuff
    going on in Lundere. The Woffen in the south third of the region are
    free-spirited and easygoing. They'll briefly mention that there's some
    kind of war going on up north, and also tell you about a shantha hanging
    out at 279,151. Said shantha is guarding a Cle-Eshta. Save before talking
    to him- if you're respectful and contrite, he may let you use the Cle-Eshta
    without a fight. The Shantha guarding the Cle-Eshta at 289,119 isn't so
    accomadating, and will insist on a fight. However, due presumably to a bug,
    you can zip right past him and use the Cle-Eshta as long as he hasn't
    talked to you before you put your hands on it. There's a third Cle-Eshtas
    around the region too, so keep your eyes open. As for the war, it's not
    going too well for the good guys. Go to 281,129 if you want to help out.
    If you need some quick cash, near the southern pass to Dobre is a huge
    nest of Scragger.
    
    To reach Lundere:

    Incupod Island
    ++++++++++++++
    
    This tiny island east of Voligire contains two bountiful Incupod patches
    and is a good place to visit if you need to grow more recos at any point.
    
    To reach Incupod Island:
       Warp at 357,93 (from 279,151 in Lundere)
    
    Of interest-

       353,94- 5 Green Incupods, 3 Red Incupods, 3 Red Corks
    
    Isolated Island
    ---------------
    
    A tiny island all alone in the south seas, far from any major continent.
    It contains only minor items- frankly, if you have to fight the shantha
    guarding the Cle-Eshta here, it's not worth it unless you're trying to
    pump up your Cle-Eshta count. But, hey, another island, another trove of
    buried treasure.
    
    To reach Isolated Island:
       Warp at 262,275 (from 289,119 in Lundere)
    
    Of interest:
       262,275- (Literally right on top of the warp) 3 Daij, 3 Shirm-eh

       264,176- 4 Weave
    
    Aylon
    +++++
    
    This island off the coast of Jasp consists of crystal fields and
    Cle-Eshtas, all watched over by a Shantha guard. The Shantha is not a big
    fan of Dytra Al-Desti. Talk to him about crystals, then mention the Red
    Shantha, and he'll go nuts and promise to help you. He says he's given you
    some weave crystals, but I didn't get any- possibly he gives you only
    enough to bring you up to a certain amount, I had 10 at this point. Or it
    could be just a bug.
    
    Anyway, be sure to raid the crystal fields- you'll find enough weave
    crystals to earn a new dysha easy. Also be sure to check out the ruins on
    the south side.
    
    To reach Aylon:
       Warp at 174,63 (from 291,116 in Lundere)

    Lundere Peninsula
    +++++++++++++++++
    
    This long Peninsula extends far to the east from Lundere proper. It's not
    very well explored, so you'll find a decent mix of stuff out here. A
    woffen at 312,128 has staked out a crystal patch, but he'll let you dig
    there in exchange for a reco miner. Of course, since woffen don't have
    battle sprites, you can just dig up the crystals anyway and there's not a
    damn thing he can do about it. :) He'll also sell you a reco miner at an
    insulting price, no real negotiotians. The Cle-Eshta at 296,145 is guarded
    by a shantha. You'll have to fight him, unless you use the sneaky trick
    from 289,119. (See "Lundere", above.) The most important thing here by far,
    however, is the Gama-El ruin.
    
    To reach Lundere Peninsula:

    Shirm-Eh Island 
    +++++++++++++++
    
    Situated south of Temauntro, the only thing here besides the warp is a
    beagre-infested shirm-eh deposit. Might be useful to stop off, but it's
    hardly worth fighting a shantha to get here...
    
    To reach Shirm-eh Island:
       Warp at 112,189 (from 296,145 at Lundere Peninsula)

    Thantier
    ++++++++
    
    Thantier is a land of forests west of Trinnu. The mandare are the main
    attraction. In all likelihood, the main reason you'll first go to Thantier
    is to hunt mandare for a particular subplot.
    
    To reach Thantier:
       Warp at 181,206 (from 369,36 in Gilthaw)
       West from the East Trinnu Jungle Lands
       Southeast from Temauntro (pass at 138,178)

    The Doben-Al
    ++++++++++++
    
    Once suppossedly fertile, the Doben-Al became a wasteland after a volcano
    near the center of the region died out. Restarting the volcano will be a
    major subplot. The main inhabitants of the Doben-Al are Crugar exiled from
    Temauntro. Avoid them- they're hungry, and you look like food. A few
    Shanthas also live in the shadow of the volcano, and these are important.
    
    To reach The Doben-Al:
       Warp at 189,157 (from 158,116 in Khodre Island)
       Warp at 158,147 (from 174,67 in Aylon)

          and Jasp)
    
    Drail
    +++++
    
    Drail is a harsh continent of jungles and mountains, home primarily to the
    blue-skinned dimwit barbarians, the Trarch. You won't be able to get here
    until you have to come to deal with a particular subplot.
    
    The most important location here is the Trarch village. Feel free to talk
    to them, Trarch are a riot. The most important one is the king, sitting by
    the lake. When you first meet him, he'll ask how you want to be eaten.
    Keep cool and ask to be spit-roasted. You might also want to talk to Kog,
    the trarch scholar- he can tell you where to find purple incupods. Also,
    one of the houses contains a trader who will buy pibber- usually he'll just
    offer one gemlink, but occassionally you can get a Warp-Out Crundorra.

    Khodre
    ++++++
    
    Kind of the opposite of Dobre, Khodre is actually several areas north of
    the Doben-Al with so little in them that I've put them all together. (If
    you know Pen-and-Paper Jorune, one of them is Ros Crendor.)Despite that,
    what is here is useful- most especially, this is the best place in the
    game to look for Isho Invisibility limilates.

    Jasp
    ++++
    
    Jasp is like a mini-Gilthaw. It's small, but if the crystal fields are
    very prosperous, and without the annoying problems of having to beat down
    Cleash. You will, however, have to deal with Eye Evids and the occassional
    Corondon. There's a Crugar wandering around the north end of the region
    that has the same problem as the Crugar in North Dobre. North Temauntro is
    to the southwest. 
    
    To Reach Jasp:
       Warp at 163,60 (from 186,163 in The Doben-Al)

       156,35- Crugar Exile
    
    North Temauntro
    +++++++++++++++
    
    North Temauntro is the land of the cygra. They look like Crugar, but are
    a good deal more friendly, and won't fight you unless you explicitly pick
    a fight. There's a good variety of stuff here, including a ruin Salrough
    will point you to, Beagre hunting, and some weave crystal deposits. A few
    in the south of the region are guarded by crugar who have crossed the
    border. You'll have to kill them to mine there.
    
    The border between North and South Temauntro is indistinct. I've drawn it
    around latitude line 109, where there's a mountain range passable only on
    the west side, near the sea. Around that area are three groups of 8 Cygra.
    AVOID THEM! They appear to be left over from a subplot that got cut from
    the final game, and the encounter is bugged. If you talk to more than two
    of them, the game will crash. If you want, you can talk to one of them
    than leave, and all three groups will disappear.

    South Temauntro
    +++++++++++++++
    
    South Temauntro is home to the vicious Crugar. It contains some of the
    richest crystal deposits on Jorune, but the Crugar guard them very
    zealously, so if you want them, you'll basically have to become a poacher.
    The eastern part of the region has a large, impassable river running
    throughit. Get around it by heading north. Some of the Crugar in the west
    portion of the region are FourPaws Crugar. You can fast-talk your way out
    of fighting them if you're respectful. Go to their camp a 93,143 to start
    an interesting subplot.

    Eserran
    +++++++
    
    Esseran is the large island or small continent in the far southeast corner
    of the map, so mysterious it isn't even named in the manual. It's
    sometimes referred to as the "Lost Continent"- possibly because no-one
    knows about it, possibly because noone can find it- the warp from Drail
    that takes you here is marked in WarpWorld as being in the middle of
    Temauntro. :) Bugs aside, this island has been abandoned for awhile,
    and there are Corondon around, so bring some Poison Blood and Healing
    limilates if you plan to explore the place fully.

    ++++++++
    
    Voligire is a land of Ramian. They are considerably more reasonable then
    those on Sillipus, but they're still not happy at all to see you- pretty
    much anything you say becomes an excuse to kill you. The scholar at 377,93
    can tell you a little about the problem with Shirm-eh and how it
    monkeywrenches any dealings with Burdoth. He also knows about a possible
    solution. That's pretty much the only thing of significant interest here,
    although you can find a nest of Scragger on one of the peninsula and
    incupods all over. Oh, and a Cle-Eshta near the eastmost warp.

    Sillipus
    ++++++++
    
    In my opinion, this jungle island is just not worth visiting. For one,
    there's almost nothing here- no crystals or ruins, and despite what
    several characters insist on, you can find Purple Incupods elsewhere. To
    make it worse, the Incupods here are guarded and if you try to use them or
    dig for corks you'll get attacked by ramian. Oh, yeah, that's another
    thing- the island is absolutely teeming with Ramian, usually so many in a
    single area that they lag the screen. And they'll attack on sight. Now,
    there is a way you can deal with most of them without fighting (see "The
    King is On Vacation")- do so and the huge patrols and slave camps will be
    reduced to just a few demoralized ramian wandering around, and the ramian
    at the Incupod patches will disappear altogether- but this is useless
    since they'll still show up when you go to exploration mode and you
    wouldn't need to fight them anyway otherwise. Seriously, just find purple
    incupods elsewhere and save yourself the trouble.

    Gilthaw
    +++++++
    
    At the north extreme of the map are the cold and barren Ice Fields of Gilthaw.
    This is the base of operations for the Cleash who caused you so much
    trouble. Near the end of the game, you'll come here for a critical
    subplot, but there's ample reason to visit before- the crystal fields
    here are the richest in all of Jorune. However, the realm can be confusing
    to navigate- the fields have few landmarks, so it's easy to lose your way
    or overlook stuff. (Indeed, I'm not quite sure I've gotten every point of
    interest here, but I'm confident I've recorded all the important ones.) A
    tiny little gap between the sea and the mountains at 324,67 gives access
    to the Cle-Eshta at 316,67. Also, at the warp at 330,22 is a Cleash
    wandering around. Talk to him, but be nice, and don't attack. He'll be
    very important later on.

    Skyrealms
    +++++++++
    
    Skyrealms are accessable only by warps. When you find a Cle-Eshta that
    takes you to a skyrealm, nothing will seem to appear when you enter
    WarpWorld. Travel around Warpworld until you see a light you haven't seen
    before- that'll be it. A Skyrealm is tiny- one point of interest on a
    landmass barely big enough for it, but it will often contain useful items.
    There are three Skyrealms reachable in the game (not counting one that
    you'll explore in the endgame)-
    
    Over Drail (from 174,67 in Aylon)- 6 Healing, 2 Daij
    Over Lundere (from 174,67 in Aylon)- 1 Corondon, 5 Power, 1 Rate
    Over Burdoth (from 185,161 in The Doben-Al)- Ruin- Suspended Ruins
       (Cle-Eshtas to Drail, Lundere Peninsula)
    
    Shanthic Ruins
    --------------
    
    Exploring shanthic ruins is the most fun part of the game. In these
    ancient underground structures, you'll find not only the Cle-Eshtas that
    will help you master WarpWorld, but many other items and treasures that
    will help you on your quest. They're listed here in approximately the
    order you'll find them. It's always good to check with Salrough Gomo from
    time to time- often he'll know about some new ruin or ruins you should
    explore. 
    
    Gal-Imasti (211,167)
    ++++++++++++++++++++
    
    This is very likely the first ruin you'll come across, just west of
    Ardoth. It's small and simple, but gives you an idea of what you can
    expect from your career as an amateur shanthic archaeologist.
    
    Ride the elevator down into the first level. The tablet tells you nothing
    special. To the left, across two moving platforms, is a stalled elevator.
    Use a power crystal on the source nearby to start it up. Down on the
    second floor, you'll run into an Eye Evid. These guys generally aren't
    too strong, but at the very beginning of the game neither are you, so be
    careful. Kill him, then go right. Check the skeletons to find 3 weave
    crystals and 17 gemlinks. Then head down to the third floor. Bash down
    the green door to find a Power Hold sarceen. 
    
    Double back to the entrance and go right. Use a power crystal on the
    source to turn on the elevator, then go down to the second floor to find
    the Cle-Eshta. It will take you to Khodre Island.
    
    Shenas-Abey (158,116)
    +++++++++++++++++++++
    
    This ruin is the main attraction on Khodre Island. You'll find it very
    early on, after Gal-Imasti, but you may not be able to get to the
    Cle-Eshta until later. 
    
    Note in Local Area Map mode that there are two entrances. The east leads
    to a small room where you'll find a shanthic artifact and a key. Take
    them, then go to the west entrance. You'll find the first room infested
    with Beagre. The tablet implies that when this place fell into ruin, one
    shantha remained behind. Hmm... that shantha could be a problem. Use your
    key to open the door to the right, then kill the Eye Evid. Take the
    elevator down, skipping the second floor for now to reach the third. Kill
    the Slug Evids, then pick up two more shanthic artifacts and another key
    from the floor to the left. Go back up to the floor above, and bash
    through the green door. Jump the pit and open the red door with your key,
    but watch out! There's another Eye Evid lurkingout of view that will
    attack you.
    
    Past the door, grab the power crystal and use it on the power source. This
    will activate the elevator further left. Skip the next floor down and go
    all the way to the bottom to find a shanthic artifact and a rate crystal.
    Then go back up to the floor you skipped. The Cle-Eshta is here, but the
    shantha guarding it is bad news. You won't be able to talk your way past
    him, and if you've only just started the game there's no way you can beat
    him. Keep in mind, however, that you don't necessarily have to beat him.
    All you need to do is to get past him to reach the Cle-Eshta. Since you
    got here via Gal-Imasti, you should have Power Hold. It's possible, with
    quickness and a little luck, to run to the other side of him, hit him with
    a pair of holds and keep him there long enough that you can use the
    Cle-Eshta before he gets another shot off. If you can't manage that, you
    can always come back- the Cle-Eshta takes you to The Doben-Al, which you
    won't need to visit until much later.
    
    Do-Enesha (200,173)
    +++++++++++++++++++
    
    Do-Enesha is in southwest Burdoth, north of the East Trinnu Jungle Lands
    and west of the Gauss Valley. 
    
    The ruin has been more or less emptied out, either by the inhabitants
    when they abandoned it or by looters. Whichever, there's much less here
    than in Gal-Imasti. The first floor contains only a map, the second only
    a tablet. On the third floor you'll find a corpse that has a rate crystal.
    He was killed by an Eye Evid- you'll find that out when this same Evid
    attacks you. Kill him. The Cle-Eshta is in the next room, and takes you
    to Anasan.
    
    Dwelling of Ana Ci-Eshta (212,179)
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    The Dwelling of Ana Ci-Eshta is situated in south-east Burdoth, near the
    East Trinnu Jungle Lands. There's no Cle-Eshta here, unfortunately, but
    you can find some hints to track down others. The surface is infested with
    scragger. Beat them up or use a scragger repellant limilate. Actually,
    you can do both...
    
    Anyway, take the elevator in and get off at the first floor. You'll see
    some Spider Evids roaming around. They're harmless, so ignore them unless
    you have a grudge of some kind. In the room to the left you'll find a
    corpse that has 2 shanthic artifacts. On the second floor you'll meet
    more scragger. The tablet nearby is a message from Ana Ci-Eshta, which is
    not very useful, honestly. Down on the third floor is an Eye Evid, which
    you should clobber. 
    
    It's important to note that sometimes the scragger on the higher floors
    can fall down here due via the elevator shaft, which can leave you
    fighting three or four scragger and an Eye Evid at the same time. This can
    be amusing, as the scragger unwittingly intercept Suspension Orbs and
    Lightning Orbs meant for you, but it can also make the fight more
    difficult- since you get tired quickly in combat, large groups of even
    weak enemies can be dangerous. You can get around this by using either
    Isho Invisibility or Scragger Repellant limilates to make one or the other
    impotent. 
    
    In any event, once you're done with these clowns, read the tablets. They
    contain cryptic clues for the locations of three Cle-Eshtas-
       With the Ca-Launtra, sealed away "until lava flows again".
       At "the apex", at coordinates 208,??? (or maybe ???,208)
       Twin Cle-eshtas in the forest where the mountains bordering Temauntro
          and the Doben-Al meet. (There actually appears to be only one
          Cle-Eshta here.)
    
    Ma-Eshira (223,169)
    +++++++++++++++++++
    
    This ruin has two entrances. The east one is initially closed because the
    elevator's down, but you can get in via the west entrance. Go to the first
    floor down and grab the shanthic artifact. Enter the hall to the right and
    kill the four slug evids for weave crystals. Read the tablet. "Guardians
    and things that are guarded rest in matched unison." Hmm. Bash through
    the door at the other end of the hall and activate the power source. This
    will turn on the elevator at the east entrance, which will come down the
    shaft in this room. Ride it down two levels, then hop off and grab the
    Suspension Orb Sarceen. Wait for the elevator to come back and ride it
    all the way down. (Or you can just jump down the shaft, but you'll take
    damage.) Note the red door that you pass. 
    
    At the bottom level, take the shanthic artifact then head west. In the
    hall are THREE rate crystals! At the other end is a green door. Smash it,
    then smash the Eye Evid on the other side. Ride the Elevator back up to
    the West entrance. You'll pass a room with an Eye Evid, then another with
    a Sphere Evid. The room to the right of the sphere evid holds a Blob Evid.
    Kill any or all of them for Power Crystals. 
    
    You may have figured out that the tablet at the entrance was referring to
    the symmetry of evids and treasures- one evid for each item. You may also
    have noted that two items appear to be missing. You're right. The first is
    the item behind the red door you passed earlier. The second is the key to
    the red door, which isn't here. Someone has visited Ma-Eshira before you
    and taken it. You'll find out who while following a subplot midway through
    the game. If you haven't found that subplot yet, just let this area lie
    for now.
    
    Besieged Ruin (201,187)
    +++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    This ruin on the west side of the East Trinnu Jungle Lands is a bit out of
    the way. You'll arrive to find it under attack by Cleash. Avoid them and
    go straight for the entrance. On the first floor down you'll find three
    skeletons. Search them for 11 gemlinks. (The one in the middle appears to
    be empty.) On the second floor you'll talk to the Cleash squad leader. His
    squad is attempting to secure the ruins to use as an encampment, but
    they've run into trouble- a shantha in the ruins has been fighting them
    off. After the conversation, the Cleash will attack you. You can cheese
    this fight pretty effectively by riding the elevator up and down. The
    Cleash won't be able to hit you with his capsules, but you'll be able to
    fire Power Orbs as you ride past. Occasionally the Cleash will get pushed
    off the screen and vanish due to a bug. Don't worry- if he has any life
    left, he'll reappear if you leave the screen then return. If you want to
    skip this fight altogether, just head down to the bottom floor.
    
    On the bottom floor is the shantha. The stress of fighting off the cleash
    has caused him to snap, and he'll babble something incomprehensable before
    attacking you. The fight is difficult, but you can find an advantage in
    the power floors to the left. Stand on one of them, and you'll be able to
    spam him with Power Holds and Power Orbs. When he's finished, bash down
    the door to the left to find a shanthic artifact. Ride the elevator up to
    find a rate crystal, warp-out crundorra, and a Cle-Eshta that will take
    you to Gilthaw. 
    
    Crossroads of warpWorld (215,187)
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Salrough will be very excited when he tells you about this. He's confident
    you'll find several Cle-Eshtas in this ruin. You will, but of course
    there's always a catch...
    
    When you enter the area you'll note someone walking around. Approach them.
    It turns out to be a woman named Klassy, who won't tell you exactly what
    she's doing... meaning she's probably up to no good. She disappears before
    you can get anything useful out of her. Huh.
    
    Enter the ruin. You'll be attacked by and Eye Evid on the first floor
    almost immediately. Kill it, then look around this floor. On each side is
    a room with two shanthic artifacts and a Cle-Eshta. Skip the second floor,
    it contains nothing but spider evids. The third floor has a pair of
    shanthic artifacts, and on the bottom floor you'll fight two slug evids
    and a blob evid before finding two more Cle-Eshtas.
    
    As you may have noticed, however, the Cle-Eshtas here are non-functional,
    missing the central warp crystal. Puzzling, isn't it? To get them
    operational again, you'll have to follow a subplot. Go back to Salrough
    to start it off. (See "Broken Cle-Eshtas")
    
    Once you have the Warp Crystals, you can re-activate the Cle-Eshtas. The
    one on the upper-right takes you to an Abandoned Island, but there's
    nothing there. The upper-left one takes you to western Voligire. On the
    lower-right you can go to Corondon Island off Temantauro, where you'll
    find some useful crystal fields. Finally, on the lower-left you can open
    a warp to Lundere, which is a good way to get to the ruins of Tellemes.
    
    Sha-Yesh (208,200)
    ++++++++++++++++++
    
    Salrough tells you about Sha-Yesh, though his coordinates are off. The 
    complex is in extreme disrepair, so you may want to bring a warp-out 
    crundorra, in case you get stuck. (Of course, you can also just save and 
    restore from the beginning. It's not that big a ruin.)
    
    There are three apparent entrances into the Sha-Yesh complex, but two of 
    them are sealed off due to lack of power. Enter the sole remaining 
    entrance. There's nothing on the first floor, so get down to the second by 
    jumping into one of the pits. (The elevator down is broken, so don't bother
    waiting around for it.) Kill the Slug Evid, and grab a key from the corpse. 
    In the room on the far right, activate the power source to turn on the 
    Isho Lift and ride it down. (This lift comes out at the surface, if you 
    ever need to get back inside.) 
    
    The tablet at the bottom mentions a "caretaker". Uh-oh. Head over to the 
    right and take the elevator up. Unlock the door with the key you found on 
    the corpse earlier. In the next room is the Cle-Eshta, but leave it be for 
    now. continue all the way to the left. Enter the door, and kill the slug 
    evids. Use the Power Source to activate the elevator. Ride it up two 
    floors and grab the shanthic artifacts. Ride it back down one floor to 
    meet a shantha. He offers to let you use the Cle-Eshta and leave in peace. 
    Go ahead if you want to, but if you can fight your way past him, you'll 
    find a Suspension Orb Sarceen and a rate crystal. Also, if you need to get 
    back in to the surface, you can take the elevator. 
    
    When you're done here, the Cle-Eshta will take you to South Temauntro, 
    land of the crugar.
    
    Tellemes (291,116)
    ++++++++++++++++++
    
    As Salrough noted, the only entrance to this ruin is an Isho lift, and 
    there's no apparent way out besides any Cle-Eshtas you find inside. 
    Salrough recommends that you bring a warp-out Crundorra, but in truth, 
    the ruin is very small and the only real way to get stuck is if you don't 
    have a power crystal. Even then, you'll find a crystal in the ruins 
    themselves.
    
    Take the lift inside and grab the shanthic artifact. The Cle-Eshta is to 
    the left and down, but the elevator that will take you to it is inoperable,
    and the Power Source on the wall doesn't turn it on. So, go right, beat up
    a Slug Evid and take the other elevator down. Snag the power crystal on 
    the second floor, then continue to the bottom. In the room to the left 
    stand on the power floor and beat up the Eye Evid. Keep going left to find 
    a power source. Turn it on to start the elevator moving, then ride it up 
    to the Cle-Eshta. And that's it. The Cle-Eshta will take you to Aylon, an 
    island off the coast of Jasp.
    
    Skyrealm Gateway (174,67)
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    This ruin in Aylon is very straightforward. It has two apparent Isho Lift 
    entrances. The right one is really an exit, though, so enter through the 
    left. Immediately after exiting the lift you'll be attacked by an Eye Evid. 
    Clobber him, and that's basically it. All the way to the right is the Isho 
    Lift that will take you back to the surface, and on each of the three floors 
    reachable by the elevator there is a broken Cle-Eshta. Use each of them-
    the bottom one takes you to a Skyrealm over Drail, the middle to the north 
    area of the Doben-Al, the last to a Skyrealm over Lundere.
    
    Gama-El (312,122)
    +++++++++++++++++
    
    Like before, the entrance is one-way, so bring an extra warp-out crundorra.
    
    As Salrough warned you, there are lots of evids around here, and one of 
    them- an Eye Evid- attacks you as soon as you enter. Kill him, then loot 
    the corpses nearby for 7 weave crystals and 2 shanthic artifacts. To get 
    through the door to the right, use your Tra-Sense to the left of the last 
    corpse to reveal a key. (The elevator in this room will lead you to a 
    tablet that contains no useful information. )
    
    In the next room you'll be attacked by two sphere evids, and while you're 
    fighting a third will come up, possibly from behind. Kill all three of 
    them- one has a yellow key you'll need in a different ruin. Ride the 
    elevator up and grab the Reflect sarceen, then rid it further up. At the 
    top, grab the power crystal and go left to find the Cle-Eshta, which will 
    take you to Gilthaw. 
    
    By the by, you might notice that the map displays two further power 
    sources that don't seem to be anywhere. Don't worry about it- Salrough 
    did say the complex was mostly destroyed, I guess they're out there buried 
    under rubble.
    
    North Volcano Complex (185,161)
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    To enter this ruin, you'll have to complete the "Dead Volcano" subplot, 
    which starts at the oasis ruin just south.
    
    To get in to this ruin, use the Isho Lift on the left. Inside, go to the 
    right past the power source, jump the lava, and beat up two sphere evids 
    to find a weave crystal and a Cle-Eshta. Use Tra-Sense on the floor to the 
    left of the Cle-Eshta to find a hidden pit. If you have Lava Walk, double 
    back to the Power Source to activate it, then jump into the pit to find a 
    sarceen holding the Isho ability Regenerate. However, the gap in the 
    ceiling is the only way out of this room, so unless you have Morph Evid 
    you'll need a Warp-Out Crundorra. Once you have Morph Evid, you can also 
    use it to get to the floor above the entrance, where you'll find a rate 
    crystal, power crystal, and most importantly, an Add Slot Crundorra that 
    will give you a third offensive dysha slot!
    
    Finally, the Cle-Eshta will open up the Skyrealm over Burdoth.
    
    South Volcano Complex (186,163)
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Just like with its twin to the north, you'll have to complete the "Dead 
    Volcano" subplot before you can enter this ruin. You might notice as well 
    that there's only one Isho Lift on the surface. Be prepared to use a 
    Warp-Out Crundorra if things go wrong.
    
    The Isho Lift will take you deep down into the earth.  Walk into the room 
    to the right and kill the two Sphere Evids. You can cross the pool of lava 
    with Lava Walk, but don't. Instead, ride the Isho Lift up to find an Eye 
    Evid guarding a Cle-Eshta. Kill it and cross the chasm to find another 
    Cle-Eshta and an Isho Lift that you can ride down. You'll find yourself on 
    the other side of the lava. Go right. In the next room are two shanthic 
    artifacts, a third Cle-Eshta, and an elevator going down. Ride the elevator 
    to find a tablet and a power crystal.
    
    You may have noticed that in the rooms above the lava room are some items. 
    To get to them, you need to fly upward through the chasms in the lava room 
    using Morph Evid. Do so- the loot includes a Lava Walk sarceen, power 
    crystal, rate crystal, and Vampire sarceen.
    
    When you're done, the first Cle-Eshta you passed will take you to 
    Voligire, the second to Jasp, and the last to Sillipus.
    
    Suspended Ruins (Skyrealm over Burdoth)
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    There are three entrances to this ruin- a door, an elevator, and an Isho 
    lift. Take the door. You'll immediately have to kill two Eye Evids. Do so,
    then jump over the elevator and continue all the way to the right. At the 
    end of the hall is a map. Ignore the Isho Lift. Return to the elevator and 
    ride it down to the next floor. Go to the right, and you'll find the tail 
    end of the Isho Lift from the surface and the floor above. There's a Power 
    Source nearby. Activate it to turn on a second Isho Lift nearby. Ride it 
    up to find a hidden room containing a Sphere Evid and a broken Cle-Eshta. 
    Repair it and you can open up a second warp to Drail. 
    
    Jump back into the lift and go back to the elevator, then past it to the 
    next room. Kill the three Blob Evids, then continue on to the room after 
    that and kill the Eye Evid. Take the Warp-Out Crundorra and Power Hold 
    sarceen. It's not necessary, but if you want, go through the door- you'll 
    fight an Eye Evid and a Sphere Evid at once, then continue on to a fight 
    with another Sphere Evid, then find the elevator back to the surface. 
    Either way, you're finished with this floor. Double back to the elevator 
    near the Isho lifts.
    
    Go down to the next floor- you can take the elevator, but there's a pair 
    of Eye Evids at the bottom, so you might want to jump and get the element 
    of surprise. Kill the Evids, then bash down the green door. In the next 
    room, kill the Slug Evids. Jump over the elevator shaft. Use Tra-Sense to 
    reveal a music box on the left end of the room, and touch it. Then go left 
    to find a Cle-Eshta. This one takes you to the Lundere Peninsula.
    
    Take the elevator down to the next floor. If you didn't turn off the 
    Sentinal Evid using the music box on the previous floor, you could be in 
    trouble- his Isho Drain barrage will not only blast you off the elevator, 
    it'll leave you vulnerable to either the Sphere Evid in the room, or the 
    Eye Evid in the room below. You can keep the sentinal from firing by 
    staying on the right edge of the elevator. If you're having trouble doing 
    this, you may need to use Morph Evid to get back up. Go left and grab the 
    sarceen, which teaches Suspension Orb. Finally, ride the lift two floors 
    down, or just jump down using Feather Fall. (Or just jump down, period- 
    barring a fall off a skyrealm, fall damage is generally negligable in this 
    game.) Fight the Eye Evid, then use Tra-Sense to reveal two rate crystals, 
    one on each pedestal. Take the elevator back up, grabbing a third rate 
    crystal on the way. And we're done here.
    
    Sus-Cassen (171,238)
    ++++++++++++++++++++
    
    The entrances to Sus-Cassen appear to be four Isho lifts. Actually, only 
    three are enterable- the rightmost one is the exit, should you need one. 
    The other three lifts go to three different levels of the complex. The 
    leftmost one takes you down to the first floor, but it's blocked off by a 
    sentinel evid. Take the second from the left takes down to the second 
    floor. See that large hanging contraption to the left? It's a music box. 
    It turns sentinel evids on and off. If you click it, it will turn off the 
    sentinel on the floor above. Second and subsequent clicks toggle both the 
    sentinel above and the sentinel below on and off. (So, it will turn the 
    one that's on off, and the other on.) Touch it twice to turn the sentinal
    below off.
    
    Now head right, into the next room, and stand on the power floor. There 
    are three Eye Evids in this room- beat them all up, then cross the chasm 
    to find a shanthic key. Now go down to bottom level via the second lift 
    from the right. Walk right, past a sentinel evid that should be off. Beat 
    up some blob evids in the next room, then activate the power source and 
    use Lava Walk. Jump down into the chasm and go left, past the red door, 
    and fight your way past the shantha to reach the Cle-Eshta. It will take 
    you to South Temantauro.
    
    If you have Morph Evid, there are some other items you can get here by 
    flying over the chasms. On the first floor you'll find a rate crystal and 
    a warp-out crundorra on the other side. On the third you'll find a 
    powerful Lightning Orb sarceen. In both cases, however, there are no power
    sources on the other side, and jumping into the pit will leave you 
    incinerated by the lava on the bottom floor, so you'll need to use a 
    Warp-out crundorra to get out again.
    
    Ca-Shal Storehouse (165,115)
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    This ruin lies near the shores of the lake in central Khodre. The entrance 
    is a good old-fashioned elevator. Kill the Eye Evid at the entrance, then 
    go right. Cross the pits, taking out the Slug Evid and picking up the 
    power crystal on your way, and go down via the elevator you'll find. 
    
    Kill the Blob Evid at the bottom and go left. Past the door, you'll find 
    yourself duking it out with a Sphere Evid and two Eye Evids at the same 
    time. This is a tough fight- don't be ashamed to use Isho Invisibility and 
    sneak past if you need to. Leap the pits all the way to the other end of 
    the room to find a tablet- apparently this place is a storehouse. Jump 
    down into one of the pits and loot the room below for a shanthic artifact, 
    weave crystal, and power crystal, then bash through the door to find a 
    Cle-Eshta. It takes you to the Island of Aylon, off Jasp.
    
    Eshanal, the Guarded Place (90,95)
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Salrough has info on this complex in Northern Temauntro. There are two 
    entrances: an Isho lift and a pit on the surface that resulted from the 
    roof caving in. The Isho Lift leads to a locked door, so we have no choice 
    by to jump into the pit. (If you take the lift by accident, use Tra-Sense 
    to reveal a Warp-out Crundorra on the right pillar.) Save before doing so 
    and try and land at the very edge of the pit- the bottom is five floors 
    down, and falling down the center will mean a lot of damage. However, if 
    you go down via the edges, you'll hit each ledge as you go down, thus 
    slowing you enough to minimize the damage considerably. If you have to go 
    down the center, you'll take damage, but if you're at full life you should 
    survive- keep a reco surgeon handy. At the bottom, search the corpses for 
    two weave crystals and a Scragger Protection Limilate. You'll also see a 
    Warp-Out crundorra, shanthic key, power source, and door in this tiny room.
    The key, annoyingly, goes to the door on the other side of the complex, so 
    grab it then get back to the surface using the crundorra or Morph Evid. 
    
    Take the Isho lift down. The key you found will open this door. Beyond 
    you'll find a room with two shanthic artifacts, a Cle-Eshta, power crystal, 
    rate crystal... and three Evids- two Eye and one Sphere- swooping down 
    from the room above to kick your butt. Show them who's boss, then loot 
    the room. If you want, take the elevator on the right up to grab an extra 
    Warp-out crundorra. There's also a key which goes to the door on the right 
    side of the room below, but as you may have guessed, that's just the room 
    you jumped down a big pit into earlier. You can get out using Morph Evid if
    you want, but of course you really want to use the Cle-Eshta instead. It
    takes you to Voligire.
    
    Dwelling of Elamas (351,269)
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    This is possibly the smallest ruin in the game, but well worth exploring 
    nonetheless. Simple Elevator entrance. Down we go, into a small dwelling 
    with three rooms. The room to the left is locked, and no key in sight. But 
    the tablet in the room to the right tells us the key is in another ruin 
    called Gama-El. (Salrough can point you towards this ruin, and in fact 
    probably already has.) Once you have the key from Gama-El, use it to get 
    in to the left room. Find a PowerCrystal, Warp-Out Crundorra, and a 
    powerful Add Slot crundorra! Not bad for what amounts to some 
    fetch-and-carry.
    
    Dwelling of Sho-Thal Family (330,253)
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    These guys are old-school- they, too, like elevators. Ride it inside, 
    then in the room to the right read the tablet. Turn on the power source, 
    and ride the second elevator down. Pick up a shanthic artifact on the 
    first floor down, and continue to find... an utterly empty dead-end room. 
    Not a thing. Wow. If not for the Add Slot Crundorra in the Elamas 
    dwelling, the Esarren ruins would be a complete wash. Oh well, they can't 
    all be winners. Back to the surface and on to bigger and better things.
    
    Crugar Ruins (93,143)
    +++++++++++++++++++++
    
    There are some shanthic ruins at 93,143 in South Temantauro, but they're 
    under the control of a crugar village aboveground. On the first floor 
    you'll find a crugar guard and a locked door. You'll have to do a favor 
    for the local chieftan before you can get past them. (See "The Scrolls of 
    Iscin".) 
    
    There doesn't seem to be much here at first. The second room contains an 
    elevator that will take you down to the second floor, and the second floor 
    consists of a hallway and another empty room. Tra-Sense reveals nothing. 
    Note that there is, however, a pit in the floor of the second-floor 
    hallway. Activate Feather Fall or Morph Evid at the power source nearby, 
    then head down. 
    
    At the bottom, go right, through the green door, into a battle with three 
    Eye Evids. Kill them and loot the two shanthic artifacts. There's a 
    Cle-Eshta here, but leave it for the time being. Instead, head back left 
    and beat up the Sphere Evid. You'll come to a sequence of three Isho lifts. 
    Take the center one down and prepare for a fight- a shantha is down there, 
    guarding something behind a red door, and he's not willing to talk it out. 
    However, you have a major advantage- there are two Eye Evids in the room 
    above that are likely to swoop down and join the fight. You may ask "How 
    on earth is more enemies an advantage?" Simple, really- crossfire. Evids 
    aren't particularly bright, and if you lure the shantha to a point between 
    you and the evids, they'll try to hit you with their Suspension Orbs by 
    shooting through the shantha. :) 
    
    One of the evids has the key to the door on the left. If the evids don't 
    come down, you can go up to get them via the holes in the cieling using 
    Morph Evid. Behind the door is a prison cell. The captive is a shantha 
    named Shal-Shallan. Fortunately, this one is friendly. In fact, he's a 
    fellow enemy of the Red Shantha. He can't stay for long, but he offers 
    you some aid- he has a house in Gilthaw at 370,36, and tells you about a 
    cache of supplies that he hid there.
    
    We're not quite done with this ruin yet- take the Isho lift on the left 
    down another floor. Kill the Sphere Evid, then grab two shanthic artifacts 
    nearby. Bash down the door to find another three artifacts and a Lightning
    Orb sarceen, then continue on to find another shantha. From him you'll 
    learn what Dytra al-Desti is plotting- he wants to cleanse Jorune of 
    non-native life, meaning basically everyone but the shanthas. His tool is 
    the Eleshon-she-Evid, the so-called "WarpWalker", an evid of immense power. 
    And he plans to use the life force of your fellow villagers as a catalyst 
    for the summoning. Having dropped the exposition on you, he'll attack.
    
    Once you've killed him, there's a Cle-Eshta to the right, but there seems
    to be an invisible barrier there. It fact it's a hidden pit. Use Tra-Sense
    to reveal it. If you want, you can jump down there and pick up an Add Slot
    Crundorra, but you'll need a Warp-Out Crundorra to get out if you do that.
    The Cle-Eshta here takes you to Gilthaw, and the one you passed a ways
    back to North Dobre.
    
    Home of Shal-Shellan (369,36)
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Shal-Shellan, a Shantha held captive in the Crugar Ruins, will tell you 
    about a hidden supply cache in his home that can help you defeat the Red 
    Shantha. Definitely worth checking out, wouldn't you say?
    
    The entrance is an elevator, but it's been smashed, so jump down. Kill 
    the two Eye Evids in the entrance. One of them has the key to the door on 
    the right. The elevator past the door is also smashed so again, jump. At 
    the bottom read the message from Shal-Shellan. To the left is a pit with a 
    floating platform. Two easy jumps will take you over it to a Cle-Eshta, 
    but of course that's not really what we're here for, is it? Use the power 
    source to activate Lava Walk and jump into the pit. You'll land in the pit 
    of fire Shal-Shellan mentioned. Use Tra-Sense to reveal a door in about 
    the center of the room. Go through, zip to the other side of the lava, and 
    bash down the green door to find your reward- Locurian Armor, a power 
    crystal, a Power Hold sarceen, and an Isho Rate Crundorra. The Crundorra 
    is equivilent to ten Rate Crystals! To get out, use Tra-Sense to reveal a 
    Power Source on the wall, then use Morph Evid to fly out of the pit. The 
    Cle-Eshta will take you to Thantier.
    
    Subplots
    ========
    
    Subplots are what Alien Logic has that passes for quests. They're not 
    REALLY quests because they usually don't follow the typical task/reward 
    pattern with RPG quests- really they're more things you hear about, and 
    then do for reasons that are your own. However, following these can often 
    be very rewarding- you can open up new areas or change the face of Jorune's 
    future. Again, these are in the approximate order you'll encounter them.
    
    The Ramian Merchant
    +++++++++++++++++++
    
    Sometimes at the Shambo Shenter you'll see a Ramian sitting at the table. 
    Have a talk with him and be polite. You'll eventually guess that he's 
    smuggling shirm-eh, and he'll offer you a good price- fifteen gemlinks per 
    unit. Accept, and a woffen will appear by the Ardoth docks. Talk to him, 
    don't mention exactly what's going on. You can sell shirm-eh to the woffen 
    from now on.
    
    However, the next time you're back in Ardoth, Seargent Brontin will tell 
    you the latest rumor and that the guard's investigating. You have three 
    options- you can turn in the smuggler, in which case you'll have to fight 
    your way through two ramian the next time you want to take the ferry. You 
    can just tell Brontin you'll keep your eyes open, and then warn the woffen.
    In this case, the woffen will disappear and you won't be able to sell
    shirm-eh anymore. Or, if you feel like some payback, you can accuse 
    Daclish of being the smuggler. His dot will disappear on the Ardoth map, 
    and when you talk to your old friend by the big building, she'll tell you 
    he's been arrestedbefore she, too, disappears from the map. You can still 
    warn the woffen if you've had enough of the criminal life.
    
    Beagre Pit
    ++++++++++
    
    This is not really a subplot, but at one point when you return to Ardoth,
    Brontin will warn you about a Beagre pit that broke open outside the city 
    gates. (He acts like they're the scourge of god or something. 0_o;;;;; ) 
    If you're so inclined, head over to 213,166 to find the Beagre- 10 groups 
    of 3 in all- and mop them up. Easy money. 
    
    Gang War
    ++++++++
    
    At some point Seargent Brontin will meet you at the city gates with 
    unfortunate news- a pair of rival street gangs have gone to war in the 
    neighborhood of Oiders and the streets are not safe. "Why should I care?" 
    you might wonder. Well, mainly because the woffen gang is blocking the 
    enterance to the kerning bay. There's really not much you can do about 
    this. You can talk to the Crugar gang and bluff your way into getting free 
    passage through their territory, or you can goad the Crugar into a fight 
    and kill some- or all- of them. But the woffen blocking the kerning bay 
    will remain. Just move on and come back to visit Sarella some other time.
    
    Protest March
    +++++++++++++
    
    Right after the Gang War concludes, it will be replaced by civil unrest. 
    A bunch of unionized woffen will have gathered in the town square to 
    protest unfair hiring practices. Well, at least they aren't blocking your 
    path. There's nothing you can do, so talk to them if you want for some 
    amusing dialogue, (Who comes up with these acronyms?) then move on. 
    
    Herrid's Demands
    ++++++++++++++++
    
    The first time you return to the Mountain Crown, you'll find Herrid 
    Go-Otgo, the obnoxious thriddle from the opening, blocking the door to 
    Salrough's chambers. He knows Salrough told you to come see him whenever 
    you wanted, but he's abusing a technicality to be petulant. He refuses to 
    let you in without something called a Gomo-Giddyne. There doesn't appear 
    to be anything you can do about it, so leave the Mountain Crown and 
    return. (As in, go out to the World Map, then re-enter the Mountain Crown.) 
    You'll see a bunch of four or so thriddle milling around over in a corner. 
    Go over and see what's up. Apparently this is the "Run Herrid Go-Otgo Out 
    Of Town Club." Herrid has made a lot of enemies, and they figure nothing 
    will hurt him more then having Salrough's honored guest tell him how badly 
    Herrid is mistreating people. They'll give you the Gomo-Giddyne, and 
    Herrid will have no choice but to let you pass. Tell Salrough about 
    Herrid's misbehavior, then go talk to the hate club again and you'll learn 
    Herrid has been demoted to Nereverine and sent on courier duty in 
    uncivilized lands. The Gomo-Giddyne will come in handy resolving a subplot 
    much later in the game.
    
    Broken Cle-Eshtas
    +++++++++++++++++
    
    After exploring Jorune for a time, Salrough will send you to a site in the
    East Trinnu Jungle Lands called the Crossroads of WarpWorld. When you get
    there, you'll find a woman named Klassy acting suspiciously, and when you 
    find the Cle-Eshtas it turns out they don't work. Head back to Salrough 
    and report the news. Putting the facts together with other bits of 
    intelligence he's gathered and a few leaps of logic, he determines that 
    the Cleash stole the Cle-Eshtas' warp crystals to use as a catalyst to 
    warp an army to the Mountain Crown. Invading the Mountain Crown seems to 
    be kind of their schtick. If the cleash succeed, the thriddle are in deep 
    trouble. Salrough asks you to do some recon- go back to the East Trinnu 
    Jungle Lands, find the cleash army, and ask the leader how large the army 
    is. It sounds like a stupid idea, but then again, the Cleash are pretty 
    stupid themselves, so why not? Salrough seems to know what he's doing. 
    Besides, until the situation is resolved he won't be able to research any 
    new ruins for you.
    
    Though it won't appear until this point, the army is pretty easy to find. 
    It's at 204,184, and the general is in the center, surrounded by loyal 
    soldiers. Look for the cleash that isn't moving- that's him. Note that 
    Klassy is standing next to him. Talk to her and she'll admit to taking 
    the warp crystals, but won't tell you where they are. Talk to the general. 
    As Salrough said, he's pretty free with the info... Klassy apparently 
    wants something called a "Kre-ok-ok", and the goal of the cleash invasion 
    is to contact "the old ones" by using a transponder at the Mountain Crown. 
    None of this will make any sense in isolation, but if you're interested, 
    Tabor will be able to shed some light on it. Other things will become 
    clear later.
    
    Go back to Salrough once you've coaxed the size of the army out of the 
    general. Your intel will confirm his worse fears- the thriddle are 
    hopelessly outmatched, outgunned, overpowered, and generally doomed. 
    You've got to stop this invasion before it gets going, which will 
    coincidentally also allow you to recover the missing Warp Crystals. Get 
    the mission plan from Salrough, then head back out to save the day. 
    Around the camp you discovered earlier, your tracker will pick up eight 
    crystal signals. Those are your targets. The procedure is pretty simple- 
    enter the local area map at the appropriate location, then click the scan 
    button a few times. The blip that isn't moving is the Warp Pod. Go over 
    there, jump up on the pod, and click on it to dig the Warp Crystal out. 
    Sometimes a Cleash or two will show up to stop you- fight if you think 
    you can win, otherwise just exit back to the local area map, then return. 
    Once you'll got the crystal, move on to the next Warp Pod. 
    
    After taking two crystals, Klassy will show up and try and get you to 
    stop. She'll make some threats, but she's all talk. Keep up the work 
    until you get all the warp crystals. After taking the last one, the army
    will give up and go home. Return to Salrough with the good news. He'll be 
    quite pleased, and tell you a little about what will be the endgame. He'll 
    also be able to talk to you about shanthic sites again.
    
    As for Klassy, she got away. But you haven't seen the last of her.
    
    A Rare Sarceen
    ++++++++++++++
    
    At some point when you visit Salrough, he'll have good news for you: he's 
    discovered the locationof a potentially useful shanthic sarceen. To 
    retrieve it for you, he's sent his trusted underling and friend... Herrid 
    Go-Otgo. Yes, yes, he knows there's bad blood between you and Herrid, so 
    he's also sent along his nephew, Nilder Ho-Trid. The one who's terrified 
    of Beagre. *sigh* Well, nothing to do. Go about your business while they 
    search offscreen. 
    
    When you return to the Mountain Crown later, you'll find a thriddle 
    standing stationary around the courtyard. It's Nilder. Talk to him to 
    learn some "bad" news. Salrough will confirm it- Herrid has gotten his due 
    at last, eaten alive by a mandare in Thantier, and he was carrying the 
    sarceen at the time. Meaning, if you want that sarceen, you'll have to go 
    mandare hunting. You might be wondering why bother. Well, that Sarceen 
    doesn't just teach you any old dysha- it holds a very, very important Isho 
    ability that you won't be able to get anywhere else.
    
    So, off to Thantier! I reccommend you kill as many mandare as you can, 
    some of them have interesting treasures (see "Mandare Bellies", above) 
    but if you just want the Sarceen, it's in a mandare belly at 173,181. As 
    for the sarceen, it teaches you the vital Morph Evid ability.
    
    War in Lundere
    ++++++++++++++
    
    When you visit Lundere, you'll note the woffen are talking about some war 
    in the north part of the region. They don't seem particularly worried, but 
    visit the army encampment at 281,129 and you'll learn the situation is 
    very dire indeed. The cleash are attacking with a veritable hoard of 
    scarmis. The woffen army has been more or less smashed- the survivors are 
    in no shape to fight, and the cleash could sweep in any day now and 
    that'll be the end of Lundere. However, if you know anything about scarmis, 
    you'll realize the strategy has a Death Star sized flaw. Scarmis are by 
    nature peaceful herbivores- their agression is due to a kind of 
    mind-control based on what seem to be Cleash phermones. In other words, 
    take out the cleash leaders and the army's will to fight evaporates. Not 
    easy to get close to them, you might think, but remember, the Cleash are 
    dumb. They expect to fight woffen and they expect to fight armies, so a 
    single human won't be percieved as a threat until it's too late. Time to 
    play superhero.
    
    The Cleash have set up a war camp of their own around 282,120- it's 6 
    points of interest in a phalanx formation. Pay each unit a visit, and 
    weave through the Scarmis to the Cleash captains. (If you can't see them, 
    scan a few times. They move differently from the Scarmis.) You can't talk 
    them out of this invasion, so just kill the Cleash. Once you do, the 
    Scarmis in the area will become docile and harmless. Note, however, that 
    once you engage the Cleash in battle Scarmis are likely to show up to give 
    him a hand. Because of this I don't recommend the Suspension Orb strategy
    common to dealing with capsule-throwers, because it takes too long and 
    you'll probably wind up fighting three different enemies. Just blast the 
    Cleash to bits with dyshas instead, and don't be too proud to run if you 
    find yourself outnumbered.
    
    When you're done, most of the woffen in the area will vanish. Go back to 
    the woffen encampment and the commander will explain that, with the crisis 
    averted, they went home to their families. He stayed behind to give you a 
    reward- a bag of crystals including 8 power, 20 weave, and 2 rate! Woohoo!
    
    One more thing- check the area north of the fromer cleash battleline. At 
    275,109, you'll found how they got into Lundere- a small detachment of 
    cleash is guarding what they call a warp-pod, but is actually just a 
    single warp crystal sitting on the ground. Snatch it if you want, but if 
    you've already got the Warp Crystals from the "Broken Cle-Eshtas" subplot, 
    you have all you'll ever need.
    
    The Dead Volcano
    ++++++++++++++++
    
    Salrough will eventually point you in the direction of a complex near an 
    extinct volcano in the Doben-Al, a vast Isholess wasteland between Burdoth
    and Temauntro. When you go there you'll find that the ruins are 
    unenterable. However, at 183,164 is an oasis where a Ca-Lautra Shantha 
    tells you what happened. Apparently, while the volcano was active it was a 
    great wellspring of Isho, but then for unknown reasons it died out, 
    turning the Doben-Al into desert. Since shanthic technology uses Isho 
    energy, this also left the ruins without power, which is why the Isho 
    lifts that are supposed to get you in don't work. But supposedly the 
    volcano can be restarted by a "Messiah with Inner-Peace" using an artifact 
    called the Savage Crystal. You'll have to be messianic if you want in to 
    the ruins, but problem 1: You don't have Inner-Peace, and there are no 
    buddhist monastaries on Jorune, and problem 2: The Savage Crystal was lost 
    in the jungle continent of Drail a long time ago.
    
    This sounds like something we should consult Salrough about. And indeed, 
    when you talk to him about it, he supplies a wealth of exposition about 
    how bad the Ca-Launtra have it. As for the Savage Crystal, he has enough 
    information for you to recognize it when you find it, but no idea about 
    it's properties. He recommends talking to Sha-Imsa, but don't bother just 
    yet. To get to Drail, he advises you to look up Bennid Go-Wogo.
    
    Bennid is in Ardoth right now, so off to the big city. You'll find him at 
    the Shambo Shenter, milling around. Upon talking to him, he'll immediately 
    rope you into his latest study. Let him go on, and eventually you'll get 
    the chance to ask him about his studies. He knows about Temauntro crystal 
    patches and limilates in north Burdoth, but what you want to know about is 
    Drail. He'll tell you about the Trarch and how friendly they were to him, 
    and mention a strange crystal relic. Ah-ha! He also knows the location of 
    a Cle-Eshta that will help you get to Drail. (You've probably been to the 
    area before, but the Cle-Eshta doesn't show up unless you know about it.) 
    Find it, go through the warp, and go to 135,225 to find the trarch village. 
    
    Speak to the king at the hut by the lake. He'll ask you how you like to be 
    eaten- keep cool and reply that you taste best roasted. (Anything else gets
    you killed by his guard without even the opportunity to fight back.) He'll 
    send you away in peace. Leave to the local area map, return to speak to him
    again, and he'll be willing to talk while you wait for dinner. He has things
    to say about the Ramian invading Drail, but what you really want is to get
    info on the Savage Crystal out of him. He doesn't recognize the name, but
    ask him about Bennid Go-Wogo and you'll get a very different
    interpretation of his visit. Bennid annoyed them so much that the king 
    tried to get him touch a "shiny rock" that turns people into goo. However, 
    according to legend a particular "magic shiny stick" can enable you to 
    touch the rock without getting hurt. 
    
    Something seems to be getting lost in the translation here. If the shiny 
    stick the Trarch king mentioned is a shanthic artifact, perhaps Sha-Imsa 
    would know about it. Hike back to Ardoth and talk to him about recent 
    events. From the information you give him, he'll deduce that the shiny 
    stick is a Crundorra of Inner-Peace. (Instead of some enlightened state 
    of being resulting from a lifetime of meditation and dedication to 
    truth... you need a big stick. Is that a joke of some sort?) As it so 
    happens, he also knows where to find one- a ruin in Heridoth called 
    "Ma-Eshira". You may have been to this ruin before- the chief feature was 
    a locked door that can't be opened. For this you apparently need a Launtra 
    Key- which Sha-Imsa will give you at this point.
    
    From here it's basically fetch-and-carry. Take the Key to Ma-Eshira (at 
    223,116) to find the Crundorra, use it, and go back to the Trarch village. 
    Tell the king you'll be able to touch the crystal, and he'll open the cave 
    behind the waterfall. Go there, fight past the trarch guard and the Eye 
    Evid, grab the Crystal (don't forget to use the Crundorra first!), and 
    take it back to the oasis. Talk to the shantha at the oasis, then stand on 
    the circle to his right to be taken down to an underground chamber. Walk 
    all the way to the right, click on the device at far right, and use the 
    Savage Crystal. The volcano reawakens, the Ca-Launtra are saved, and the 
    ruins at 185,161 and 186,165 will be open.
    
    The King Is On Vacation
    +++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    After taking the Savage Crystal, if you talk to the trarch king again 
    before leaving the village,he'll tell you he plans to go to Ardoth. 
    The next time you visit Salrough, he'll tell you that the Trarch King has 
    abandoned his subjects. If you return to the trarch village, you'll find 
    yourself surrounded by trarch, who declare you the new king. Without 
    asking you. Well, just play along. The trarch will bring problems to you, 
    one by one, for you to arbitrate:
       -Murg comes complaining that his neighbor Thug stole and ate his cow. 
          Thug has a cow of his own (Begging the question "Then why did he eat 
          Murg's?", but noone ever accused the trarch of having common sense.) 
          so you can order Thug to give Murg his cow in exchange. You can also 
          just tell Murg to cope, but that won't go over well.
       -Urk found his wife sleeping with Ug and smashed Ug's house in anger. 
          The wife's motive: "Urk smell bad. Ug smell pretty." Talk to Ug and 
          get the secret to his nice smell. Then you can get Urk to rebuild 
          Ug's hut in exchange for some scragger juice to make Urk smell good. 
          Everyone's happy. If you don't give a crap, you can send them away 
          to work it out themselves, or just call it even.
       -Nuddo will be brought before you in chains. He doesn't like you and 
          wants to hit you over the head. Ummm, no. You can have him killed, 
          or simply escorted back to his hut to calm down.
       -Oggo the pibber-hunter will bring a trarch hunter from outside the 
          village before you. He found him hunting pibber on the village's 
          land, and decided he was a poacher. Several solutions to this one. 
          You can just let him go. You can ask Oggo his opinion, and get the 
          option to humiliate the poacher and let him go. Or you can get the 
          poacher's opinion, then either have him killed for his insolence or 
          invite him to join the village so he doesn't have to poach anymore. 
       -A frantic trarch will bring news of Ramian patrols two days south of 
          the village, led by Chavis Vaden Choko, a prominant warlord. You 
          can order them to ignore the patrols, or send out some warriors to 
          kill Choko.
       -Kog and Duga disagree over how to raise the trarch children. Kog 
          thinks they should study language and arithmetic. Duga thinks they 
          should learn to hunt pibber. You can support one or the other, or 
          make a compromise.
       -Having solved all the problems, you decide to choose a successor so 
          you can get out of here. Your choices are- Thug, Ug, Oggo, and Kog. 
          If you ordered trarch to kill the Ramian, you can also choose Chadu, 
          the hero of the campaign. Talk to each of them, then choose one.
    When you're done, the new king will move the village to someplace safer
    and it will disappear from the map. You don't seem to get much out of this 
    subplot other than amusement initially. However, if you order the trarch 
    to kill Chavis Vaden Choko, it will break the back of the Sillipus 
    slavers- next time you visit Sillipus, there will have been a civil war, 
    with the trarch escaping captivity, most of the ramian being dead, and the 
    remainder having lost their fighting spirit. Unfortunately, this won't 
    have a major effect on your explorations of Sillipus as the Ramian will 
    still guard the incupod patches.
    
    The Scrolls of Iscin
    ++++++++++++++++++++
    
    In North Dobre, Jasp, and Voligire, you'll run into exiled Crugar looking 
    for something called the Scrolls of Iscin. Salrough will tell you a bit 
    about the legend surrounding the scrolls, but the plot thread will 
    seemingly go nowhere. Later, in South Temauntro, you'll find the camp of 
    the FourPaws crugar clan situated over a shanthic ruin at 93,143. A Crugar 
    in the ruin will forbid you from getting in. Starting a dysha-battle in 
    the middle of the camp is probably ill-advised, so go to the leader, Chaln 
    Daldir, and impress him with your boasting. (Humility gets you killed with 
    crugar.) Apparently, he's something of a big man... err, cat, rather... in 
    Temauntro. He'll give you the crugar perspective on the history of the 
    Iscin races, and will freely discuss the ruins with you. But when it comes 
    to letting you in, the answer is no. He says you'll need to trade him the 
    Scrolls of Iscin to get the key off him. He means this as hyperbole, he 
    doesn't seriously expect you to be able to find the scrolls. But you're 
    very resourceful, aren't you? 
    
    Pay Salrough a visit, and ask him to help you out. He'll gladly agree to 
    help, but will need some time. Go off and do something else for the time 
    being. After a while, return to Salrough and he'll have good news for you- 
    the Scrolls of Iscin are indeed in the hands of a foreign government, and 
    he's sent Nilder Ho-Trid to retrieve them. However, by this point in the 
    game you probably don't have a lot of faith in Nilder, so let's check up 
    on him.
    
    When you think about it, there's really only one place the scrolls can be, 
    isn't there? Hop over to Central Dobre to visit Tabor. Sure enough, you'll 
    find Nilder out front, pacing nervously. Tabor does have the scrolls, says 
    Nilder, but he won't lend them out. So you'll have to talk with Tabor 
    yourself.
    
    (Why is it that whenever the thriddle offer to help you with something, 
    you wind up getting more work to do yourself?)
    
    Tabor turns out to be in a foul mood. According to him, the thirddle have 
    a bad habit of borrowing things and not returning them, and he's finally 
    decided to put his foot down. But, if you get his stuff back, he'll be 
    glad- well, willing- to loan you the scrolls for a time. So, now it's your 
    turn to play play Nereverine- go to Salrough, get the documents, back to 
    Tabor, and the scrolls are yours. Err... "temporarily". Right. Take the 
    scrolls to Chaln Daldir, HOWEVER, before doing so go through South 
    Temauntro and poach any crystals that you plan too. Chlan Daldir will 
    give you safe passage through Temauntro after you give him the scrolls, 
    which actually makes it much more difficult to mine crystals where Crugar 
    are standing guard. You won't be able to goad them into a fight anymore, 
    but they'll still show up when you try to dig up the crystals- meaning you 
    can't clear them out, and you have to face them two at a time to get the 
    crystals. When you turn in the scrolls, Chaln Daldir will give you the key, 
    allowing you access to the ruin. The Crugar guard at the entrance will 
    also let you pass.
    
    One more thing- if you ever tell Tabor you gave the scrolls to the Crugar,
    he'll be livid beyond words. He'll refuse to talk to you or buy shanthic
    artifacts anymore. In addition to the loss of a source of money, this may
    also make the "Iscin's Last Work" subplot uncompletable. So be careful.
    
    Iscin's Last Work
    +++++++++++++++++
    
    In Voligire you'll be able to visit a Ramian Scholar who discusses at 
    length the problem of shirm-eh in relation to Burdoth-Voligire relations. 
    He mentions that Iscin, the brilliant biotechnologist of the colonial era, 
    created a reco that produced shirm-eh, but was killed before the cork 
    could be incubated. If you visit Tabor, he will add to this information, 
    and also knows the location of the lab where the cork was created- 146,142,
    in South Temantauro. Do you think it could still be there? Go to the 
    remains of the lab and send out a couple of miners. The cork turns out to 
    be real! As Tabor said, put it in a Purple Incupod to create the reco. 
    Then take the reco to Voligire and exchange it for free passage through 
    Voligire- you may have to drive a hard bargain. Note also that, just like 
    with South Temantauro and Sillipus, free passage is useless because you 
    still get attacked while trying to do anything significant. Pity, but at 
    least you've helped ease tensions between the Ramian and everyone else. 
    (Well, there's still the little matter of the slavers, but hey, the world 
    ain't perfect...)
    
    Endgame: Revenge and Retribution
    ================================
    
    The endgame starts in a tiny, isolated valley in northwest Jasp. There's 
    no Cle-Eshta that will take you to it, but after using twenty-five 
    Cle-Eshtas, the warp will appear in WarpWorld with no announcement or 
    fanfare. Indeed, you may not even notice it until the next time you're 
    passing through Jasp or North Temauntro. 
    
    An Old Score to Settle
    ----------------------
    
    In the valley is a small ruin. There's a door inside, but no key in sight. 
    Tra-Sense reveals nothing. The power source does nothing. All this way for 
    a dead end? Not quite. Leave to the World Map and you'll find there's 
    another visitor to the valley. It's Klassy, the Cleash conspirator, and 
    she's up for a little payback. You monkeywrenched her plans, so she's 
    going to monkeywrench yours. See, the Cleash had promised her use of a 
    kre-ok-ok transponder if the invasion of the Mountain Crown succeeded. 
    She's using it to gain control a Skyrealm somewhere in Voligire- for what 
    purpose she doesn't say, but I doubt it's good. Regardless, she has the 
    key you need and will only exchange it for the transponder. If it were me, 
    I'd just blow her away in a hail of Lightning Orbs, but I guess our hero 
    has a rule about hitting pretty girls or something. Anyway, we'll have to 
    parlay with the Cleash.
    
    Enter Gilthaw via the warp at 330,22, near the center of the continent and 
    north of the peninsula. Note there's a Cleash wandering around the area. 
    Talk to him- he's a nice guy, so don't attack and instead convince him 
    that you're a friend. The head north to find the Cleash Nest, their main 
    headquarters. The commander is inside a circle of Cleash. You can fight 
    your way inside the circle, but don't bother. Instead, talk to the lone 
    Cleash hanging out outside the circle. It's your new friend. Have a chat 
    with him and he'll open a gap in the circle, so that you can get in and 
    talk to the head Cleash. As Klassy said, he's open to reason, though 
    reasoning with a Cleash is kind of like fighting a battle of wits against 
    Forrest Gump. He'll balk if you ask directly, but talk to him about the 
    Lamorri for awhile and you'll be able to ask him to borrow the transponder, 
    similar to how you may have borrowed the Scrolls of Iscin. He's doubtful, 
    so show him your Gomo-Giddyne and bluff. Watch the gears click into place,
    and you'll get the transponder.
    
    Alternatively, you can enter the nest itself and blast your way to the 
    transponder. It's not very hard- you'll face three rooms of three Cleash 
    each, which is nothing if you have level 3 Lightning Orb and a good weave 
    rate.
    
    Either way, take the transponder back to Klassy to pick up the key you 
    need. Behind the door and through two rooms of lava is the Cle-Eshta that 
    will take you to the Island of Delsha, where the game's final battle will 
    be waged.
    
    Delsha
    ------
    
    Immediately southwest of the warp you'll find a group of Corondon on the 
    ground encircling a Skyrealm that contains a structure. You might guess 
    that that's your destination. Go west past the mountains, then 
    north-northeast. At 13,164 you'll find a Cle-Eshta, guarded by four 
    Corondon. Use it to warp to the Skyrealm.
    
    The Red Shantha's stronghold is larger than most. From the entrance, go 
    right across the pits and beat the Shantha. (You can get ahead by falling 
    through the pit instead, but I don't recommend this- you're likely to fall 
    into lava at the bottom and die.) Activate the power source to turn the 
    Isho Lift on, then ride it down to the next floor. Head back left, dealing 
    with the blob evid and the pit. In the terminal room, kill the Sphere Evid 
    and use Tra-Sense to reveal a Power Source. You may think activating it 
    will turn the Isho Lift on, but you'd be wrong. Instead, activate Lava 
    Walk and jump into the last pit you passed.
    
    On the next floor down, walk to the left. Same deal as with the room 
    above- beat up the Evid (an Eye Evid, in this case), reveal a power source 
    with Tra-Sense, and activate it. This time it will activate the Isho Lift, 
    a shortcut that will take you two levels down. If you want to go the long 
    way instead, walk right, beating up the Blob Evid, and take the elevator 
    down to the next floor. Jump into the pit (watch out for the lava at the 
    bottom!) and kill the three Blob Evids. One of them has a red key, which 
    will let you into the room to the left. Your next challenge is a pair of 
    Eye Evids, then after that you meet up with the other end of the Isho 
    Lift. Beat up the Blob Evids, then go left to a second Isho Lift that'll 
    take you down.
    
    At the bottom of the lift, you'll meet two shanthas who will get on either 
    side of you and start blasting away. If you have quick reflexes with the 
    Vampire Dysha, you can actually beat them on those terms, but you may want 
    to try and get them on the same side of you. After dealing with them, 
    you'll stand before a sequence of three rooms leading to what appears to 
    be a dead end. However, all is not as it seems. There are hidden doors in 
    the wall in the background, revealable via Tra-Sense- two in the entrance 
    room, four in the second, and three in the last. Most just hold more Evids.
    The way forward is the third door from the left in the second room. Beyond
    it is a passage where you'll fight three Sphere Evids en route to a green 
    door. You're at the very bottom of the ruins right now, so be especially 
    wary of the pits. If you fall into one you'll fall off the Skyrealm and 
    die when you hit the ground. 
    
    Past the green door, you'll finally come face to face with the object of 
    your quest- the Red Shantha, Dytra-al-Desti.
    
    Showdown and Epilogue
    ---------------------
    
    You'll meet your enemy across a pit bridged by two floating platforms. 
    He'll give a little speech when he sees you. Talk with him if you want, 
    but he's unrepentant- you're going to have to fight him.
    
    Dytra-Al-Desti more or less fights like any other shantha, but he has a 
    lot of health, so this will take a while. He also has a nasty trump card- 
    a Dysha in the form of a large, spiky grey ball that will kill you with 
    one shot. Disintegrate you into dust, in fact. Be ready to block it at 
    any time- if you use Vampire, you'll gain a lot of Isho. You can, if you 
    want, just duke it out with him from opposite sides of the pit- you should 
    have enough distance to be safe from his reflect. However, if you can 
    catch him in a Power Hold, you can rush across the platforms to reach the 
    other side, where you'll find a Power Floor that will make the fight much 
    easier. To win you just have to hit him with Lightning Orbs until he's 
    dead, but if you want a slightly more Hollywood climax, you can knock him 
    into the pit and he'll fall off the Skyrealm to his death.
    
    After winning, you'll meet Salrough Gomo again and get a short epilogue 
    narration detailing the results of your actions over the course of the 
    game. You'll learn the fates of Sha-Imsa and Klassy, among others, and the 
    political changes that resulted from the subplots you completed.
