Betrayal at Krondor walkthrough
Betrayal at Krondor Solution Chapter One Q: What is my objective in chapter one? A: Locklear and Owyn escort a Moredhel prisoner named Gorath, to Krondor. The strategic and political importance of this trip South will become clear soon enough... Q: Where is Krondor? A: Krondor is the Southernmost city in the Kingdom of Midkemia. If you are having trouble finding it, refer to the color map included in your box. You will find it along the coast of the Bitter Sea, just East of Sorcerer's le. Q: How do I open the Moredhel word locks? A: Spin the tumblers on the chest until they spell the correct answer to the riddle! All of the riddles and their answers are available for download and viewing in a text file named KRONDOR.TXT in the SIERRA LIB of our Library of Files online. Q: How do I get past the magical trap South of Zun? A: South of Zun you will encounter a magical trap with four crystals that rise out of the ground. You may click on your RETREAT button, (it could take several tries), and bypass this trap, taking another route to Krondor; or you could attempt to "solve" the puzzle. In this case, walking between like colored crystals will trigger a magical lightning bolt that could kill a member of your party. Try walking around the deadly pairs. Tap the "G" key on your keyboard if you need extra help. Q: My characters suddenly became sick or poisoned. Why? A: Be sure to "examine" every package of rations you find in the world. Click on the object with your right mouse button, then pay close attention to the information in the upper left corner of the display. If your characters DO become poisoned you will have to find some anti-venom, or pay for a cure in a local temple. Restoratives and plenty of rest will also help heal this condition. Getting "sick" from eating spoiled rations can usually be overcome by sleeping for more than 12 hours. Q: What should I do at Krondor? A: When you get close to Krondor, you will be prompted as to whether you want to continue following the road that leads toward the castle. Answer "YES" then wait until the picture of the castle appears. Move your cursor over this picture and you will see it change to words like "SHOP", "INN" and "PALACE." If you left click when the cursor says "palace" you will learn that the gates have been jammed. Move your cursor down to the cliff face beneath the gates and you will find an alternate entrance into the castle. Q: I'm in the sewer. Where is James? A: You will not be able to get into the palace from the sewers until you have found a character named James. He has been cornered by a group of Nighthawks (wearing black) in the NW corner of the sewer network. You must kill them, then head down the side passage that branches off to the North. Q: Which grate leads up to the palace? A: James will give you a key to unlock one of the grates leading up into the palace. (The key will show up with your other keys automatically.) You'll find the grate in a room East of where you found James. When you see a ladder, click on it with your left mouse button. From the "lock screen" drag James' key to the lock and release your button. (HINT: Try right clicking on the lock for more information.) If you've found the correct ladder, the lock will open and you will have successfully completed the first chapter! Chapter Two Q: What is my objective in chapter two? A: James and Gorath meet Owyn in the sewers under Krondor and together they head to the town of Romney to rendezvous with a detachment of King Lyam's troops at the Black Sheep Tavern. Q: How do I get out of the sewers in chapter two? A: The sewer exit is South. You will exit the sewers through the same entrance that you used in chapter one. Q: How do I defeat the Nighthawks near the temple of Ruthia (between Krondor and Malac's Cross)? A: Nighthawks dress all in black and you'll encounter a powerful group of them near the temple of Ruthia. If you are having trouble killing them, try hugging the mountain range South of the road and you should be able to slip past them without being detected. Q: How do I get into Romney. Mitchell Waylander won't let us through! A: Due to the Guild war in and around Romney, Mitchell Waylander will refuse to allow you into town without a Glazer's Guild seal. If you haven't been to Silden yet, you will find an important clue regarding the Guild seals in a chest outside the city. Q: Where can I get a Glazer's Guild Seal? A: Search for a farmhouse just West of the town of Lyton. (You may run into Max Feeber, the farmer who lives there.) Search the barn and inside you will find four Glazer's Guild seals! Q: We've all come down with plague on our way into Silden! A: The fever mad townsfolk who attack you outside Silden will give you the plague. For a cure, continue into town and left click on the ship on the right side of the screen---it will take you to the Temple of Eortis on Temple Isle. Inside the temple, left click on the curtains that lead into the cloisters and then choose the TALK option from the menu. The priestess will cure you of the plague as you leave. Chapter Three Q: What is my objective in chapter three? A: James, Owyn and Gorath must discover who was responsible for killing the King's soldiers at the Black Sheep Tavern. They must solve the mystery of the spyglass and the spider, then find enough evidence to convince Arutha that Nighthawks are operating in the area. You should start by talking to the people in and around Romney. Q: Who was responsible for killing the King's men at the Black Sheep vern? A: You will uncover many clues by talking to the people in and around Romney, but you will learn the most valuable information by heading North toward the town of Kenting Rush. Check out the Temple of Kahooli North of town and talk to the Priest. Q: How do I get the priests at the Temple of Kahooli to give me formation? A: You won't learn anything at the temple of Kahooli until you have proven you are pious in the eyes of their god. To do this you must drop ALL your food in a bag, then use the ENCAMP option until all your characters are "starving." Only then should you enter the temple and talk to the priest. Q: Where is Navon Du Sandau? A: The priests at the temple of Kahooli will implicate Navon Du Sandau as the leader of the Nighthawks and the man responsible for slaying the King's soldiers. You will find him on the road, in or around the town of Kenting Rush. Q: I've killed Navon Du Sandau. Where are the Nighthawk Headquarters? A: Having killed Navon Du Sandau you must now find evidence of Nighthawk involvement in a Moredhel attack on the Kingdom...to take back to Prince Arutha in Krondor. You may find what you seek behind the waterfall, which is just North of the Temple of Banath, between Cavall Keep and Prank's Stone. It will be down a dirt road that branches West off the main road. Q: How do I get through the locked door entrance to the Nighthawk Headquarters? A: To enter the caverns behind the waterfall, move your cursor around near the base of the falls until it changes to the word ENTER, then press your left mouse button. You will need a "Knight's Piece" to get past the door. Q: Where can I find the Knight's Piece? A: Head back to Kenting Rush and attempt to use the well on the South side of town. Q: How do I unlock the virtue well? A: The lock on the well in Kenting Rush can only be opened with a "virtue key." You will find such a key in the shop in Kenting Rush. There is also a key located in a grave North of Prank's Stone, next to the river. Q: How do I obtain the evidence I need against the nighthawks? A: Once you've entered the caverns behind the waterfall, head NE. You will need Navon Du Sandau's cellar key to get into his room. Once inside, you will find a Moredhel wordlock chest, which contains the evidence you need to end the chapter! The answer to the riddle is: "Darkness." Chapter Four Q: What is my objective in chapter four? A: Owyn and Gorath must escape from the dungeons at Sar-Sargoth and then fight their way South to The Teeth of the World...and freedom! Q: How do I escape the dungeons at Sar-Sargoth? A: The door South of your starting location when the chapter begins, is the only way to get to the upper level of the mine. To open that door you will need to find an interdictor key. You may find an interdictor key by going through the East door. You will need a Guildis Thorn key to open the East door. Once through the South door, simply head south, then west. The upper level is much smaller then then other levels. The exit is NE of the airway. Q: Where is Nalar's Rib? A: Nalar's Rib is an extremely powerful, yet non-essential item that you may want to spend some time looking for. It can be tricky to find. First, you must collect the emerald and the note from the skull at Sar-Sargoth. Then, when you leave the city, head south -- off the main road -- until you hit a mountain and a graveyard. Go around the West side of the mountain and continue heading south until you trigger a magical trap with three Ogre magicians in it. Once this is dealt with, head SW and look for a large stone slab among a group of trees. Q: How do I get out of the Northlands? A: The easiest and most painless way to get out of the Northlands is to find Irmelyn in the Giant's Broth Tavern in Armangar. He will ask you to rescue a character named Obkhar from the naphtha mines nearby. Q: Where is Obkhar or the naphtha mines? A: The naphtha mines are located NE of Armangar. Go around the North side of the mountains separating the river and the road, then follow the river South. You can squeeze between the river and the mountains and enter a secluded canyon. The entrance to the naphtha mines is across the bridge. Obkhar is located NE of the cave entrance. (HINT: Do NOT attempt to light a torch in the naphtha mines!!! Use Owyn's Candleglow spell, or a Bracer of Prandur to create artificial light.) Q: I've rescued Obkhar from the naphtha mines and received my reward. I can't find Cullich! A: Cullich can be found in a house South of Caern and West of the crossroads that lead to Raglam and Wyke. Use your brass spyglass, or have Owyn cast an Eyes of Ishap spell if you are still having trouble. Q: Where is Moreaulf? A: Moreaulf is located in the town of Harlech in one of the Northern dwellings. Q: How do I speak with Moreaulf? A: You will need to cast the spell "And the Light Shall Lie" in order to speak with him. (Only Cullich can teach you this short duration spell. HINT: It can be cast several times in succession to increase the duration.) Moreaulf will only give you the password for the guards on the bridge if you have talked to them first. Q: How do I cross the bridge that leads out of the Northlands? A: Before you talk to Moreaulf (using the spell "And the Light Shall Lie, of course) you should attempt to cross the bridge by heading south past Armangar. This way you will be able to ask him about a "password." Once you have received the password from Moreaulf, simply head back to the bridge and you will be allowed across. Chapter Five Q: What is my objective in chapter five? A: James, Locklear and Patrus help Duke Martin and Baron Gabot prepare a defense for the impending Moredhel attack on Northwarden. The first place you should go is back to Northwarden to talk with Baron Gabot. Then head south and look for Duke Martin, he won't be too far from the castle. Q: I'm having trouble with the three chests Duke Martin told me about. A: The three chests Duke Martin tells you to find aren't far away. Head NW and walk around the hills if you have to. When you find the chests the wordlock answers are: "onion", "outside" and "door." The only poison that will work on the rations is "coltari" poison, which can be purchased nearby. You must put the rations in your inventory, poison them, then return them to each chest. Q: How can I help Tamney the Minstrel? A: Tamney the Minstrel can be found in a barn near the town of Dencamp on the Teeth. To open the barn door, at least one member of the party must have a STRENGTH rating of 30 or more. If this is a problem, you can buy a strength booster called "Fadamor's Formula" at a shop nearby. The geomancy stones Tamney asks about are in a cavern East of Dencamp. There are two side roads that lead North to the cave entrance. Once inside you will find the stones in a chest to the North. Q: How do I get past the goblins guarding the pass into the Northlands? A: There are FAR too many goblins guarding the entrance from the Kingdom into the Northlands. You have no other choice but to pay them what they are asking. The quickest way to raise the money is by selling the diamonds you got from Tamney. It might be worth your while to search around for a shop that will give you the best price. Q: Where can I find the war plans in Raglam? A: Captain Kroldech is occupying one of the houses in Raglam, and he has the plans. To get the plans away from him, talk to the engineer who lives in the house next to the tavern in Raglam. Q: How can I make the engineer tell me where the missing catapult part is? A: The engineer will only talk to the group if Patrus plays the lute POORLY. The trick here is to lower Patrus' barding skill. The easiest and safest way to do that is to get him drunk! Q: I fired the catapult. What do I do next? A: The engineer will tell you where to find the missing catapult part. Retrieve it from the box near the river (be careful, it is trapped), then head to the catapult and click on it with your left mouse button. Once the catapult has been activated, head back to Raglam and click on Kroldech's house. The plans are inside. Q: Where can I find the invisible Moredhel spellcasters? A: After returning to Duke Martin with the Kroldech's plans, the Duke will give you one more task. This one will involve finding six invisible Moredhel spellcasters and eliminating them. (They are SE of Dencamp on the Teeth, near a house and well, which are both South of the main road.) Q: How do I defeat the six Moredhel spellcasters? A: THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT COMBAT SCENARIO and it may be necessary to try it many times before you succeed. Here are some tips: Use restoratives before the combat to boost your characters up to full HEALTH, and use them during combat if possible. Move your fighters into their ranks -- they can't use their magic if you are standing right next to them. Also, make sure your armor and weapons are in peak condition, and if you have any potions or weapon or armor enhancers -- use them! Chapter Six Q: What is my objective in chapter six? A: Owyn and Gorath must find Pug and Gamina. Their only clue is a cryptic message burned onto the wall in Pug's room at Krondor: The Book of Macros. When the chapter begins, search the sewers carefully. Q: How do I get through the sewers under Krondor? A: You will encounter a character named Katt in the SE corner, almost where the hallway dead ends. (Try heading East from the four way intersection near the entrance.) She will ask you for the Idol of Lassur, which is located in the second level of the sewers. The chest it is located in, is trapped. Q: How do I defeat the Pantathian serpent priests outside Malac's Cross? A: If you head East towards Malac's Cross, watch out for the Pantathian serpent priests surrounding the town. There are a lot of them and they are very difficult to kill. Stock up on restoratives and use them before and during the battle if possible. This would be a good place to use your armor and weapons enhancers, as well. (HINT: You might pay a visit to Malac's Dragon while you are in the area. It is NW of Malac's Cross.) Q: How do I help Abbot Graves? A: When Abbott Graves asks you to find Mitchell Waylander, head to Sloop. His house is located near the shop. He will give you a note to take back to the Abbott. Q: Where is the key to Stellan's house? A: The key to Stellan's house is located on a dead body just outside Krondor. Stellan's house is located in Eggley. Once inside you will find a map that will lead you through a secret entrance into the libraries at rth. Q: How do I get to Sarth? A: You will not be able to get into Sarth by the normal means. Find the key to Stellan's house and retrieve the map that will allow you to enter the library through the caverns underneath. You can enter the caverns by left clicking near the bottom of the Sarth background, when your cursor changes to the word "ENTER." Once you have found the stairs leading up to the library, search the shelves carefully until you find the information you are seeking. Q: Where is the entrance to the Elvandar Forest? A: There is only one way to get into Elvandar: through the mines of the Mac Mordain Cadall. You will find the mine entrance on the Western side of the road, South of LaMut. Q: What do I do in Elvandar? A: Prince Calin will help you get through the Elvandar Forest. He is located in the NE corner in a secluded area. Do not cross the river if you hope to find him. Q: Where is Tomas? A: Tomas can be reached by either passing through the Ancient Ruins, or by fighting your way to the NW corner of the forest. The Ancient Ruins are located on the Western side of the forest, North of a river intersection. When you reach the Easternmost mountains, head North to avoid the deadly Sleeping Glades. You will need a key of lineages which you can get from Prince Calin. Chapter Seven Q: What is my objective in chapter seven? A: James, Locklear and Patrus search the Dimwood forest for the Rift Machine. To start, head SE when the chapter begins, and cross the small bridge when you come to it. Head SE from the bridge until you encounter Duke Martin. If you continue to head SE you will also run into Obkhar. Both will give helpful information. Q: What is the password to cross the bridge guarded by goblins? A: The password for the bridge can be found in a Moredhel lock chest in the NE corner of the forest. The answer to the lock chest is "snowflake." Q: I'm across the goblin bridge. What do I do now? A: Once you've crossed the bridge you will have to find and talk to Moreaulf. Head East along the river until you run into him. Q: Where is the chest described by Moreaulf? A: The chest is located in the SW corner of the forest in a box canyon. The answer to the wordlock puzzle is "victory." Q: I've opened the chest that Moreaulf described, but still see no sign of the magical item that will destroy the Rift Machine. A: You will need to find Squire Phillip. Look for him due North of the chest, but it will be necessary to go around several mountains and foothills. He is heavily guarded so be careful! Q: Where is the Rift Machine? A: The Rift Machine is located near the center of the forest on a peninsula surrounded by rivers and mountains. One of the mountains is just an illusion, conjured up by enemy magicians to hide the location of the machine. This mountain must be walked through. Q: How do I defeat the enemies surrounding the Rift Machine? A: Goblins are particularly susceptible to the Mind Melt spell. If you don't already possess this spell it might be a good idea to find it. The other option would be to take a chance on Rorics Seal. This magical item will automatically cast Mind Melt, but there is about a 30% chance it will backfire and affect the caster instead. Chapter Eight Q: What is my objective in chapter eight? A: Owyn and Gorath search for Pug and Gamina on a hostile, alien world. It would be a good idea to head north when the chapter begins. Find the marble-looking pillars and click on them. It would also be a good idea to stock up on food...you'll need it in chapter nine! Q: How do I use magic in chapter eight? A: To use magic in this strange world, Owyn will first have to find a crystal staff. You can find a crystal staff in one of the dwellings in the NE corner of the island, next to a mountain. There may be others as well. You will also need crystallized manna to "rub" on the staff. Raw manna can be found by left clicking on certain crystal growths out in the world. Q: My health is suffering mysteriously while traveling through the SW corner of the island! A: There is a dangerous area in the SW corner of the island. You may not pass through this area until you have found the pillars to the North and freed Pug. Q: Where is the Cup of Rlln Skrr? A: The cup of Rlnn Skrr is located near the SE corner of the island. You will find it in a dwelling, heavily guarded by Panth-Tiandns. Q: Where is Pug? A: You will find Pug in the NE area of the island, in a dwelling next to a main road. (HINT: If you return the cup of Rlnn Skrr to the pillar of Dhatsavan, then click on the pillar again you will be teleported to Pug's location.) Q: I've freed Pug but can't locate his daughter Gamina! A: Gamina is trapped in a crystal cage in an underground cavern. The entrance to the cavern is west of the three bridges, and on the north side of the river. Q: How do I defeat the Wind Elementals in the underground cavern? A: The Wind Elementals you will encounter in the underground cavern can ONLY be killed with a spell called "Strength Drain" (This spell is located in the SW corner of the island.) Because the Wind Elementals regain strength and health every turn, you must deplete them completely in order to kill them. The easiest way to do this is to have both Pug and Owyn cast the spell on the same creature. If the first blast doesn't kill it, the second surely will. Chapter Nine Q: What is my objective in chapter nine? A: Owyn, Gorath and Pug must prevent Makala from reaching the Lifestone. This means they will have to find and kill the six spellweavers that the Tsurani Great One brought with him from Kelewan. It is important to retrieve a key called a "Ward of Ralen-Sheb" from the body of a goblin in the first room you encounter. Q: Where is the Oracle of Aal? A: The Oracle of Aal can be found by going through the North door of the first room you come to. The Oracle of Aal is located in the NE area of the caverns. Q: Where is the entrance to the second level? A: The second level entrance is on the NE side of the caverns. Head through the East door and avoid the deadends to reach the entrance. Q: Where are The Six? A: It will be necessary to search nearly every room and passageway to find The Six. You will discover they are all heavily guarded. Q: How do I defeat the enemies in the final combat? A: The cup of Rlln Skrr may be used over and over again in Chapter Nine to learn spells. Pug will eventually learn every spell in the game, but this will take time and use up a lot of rations.
