Map Summary


1 - Turtle Eggs

You'll find one or more Turtle Eggs at each of these locations.

2 - Healing Potion

You'll find a Healing Potion here.

3 - Three Buttons Puzzle

You'll find three buttons here: one each to the north, south and east. Your goal in the puzzle is to press the buttons in the right sequence. When you get a button right, you'll hear a "click." When you get a button wrong, you won't hear anything. After some trial and error, you should be able to come up with the solution: SNEESNN. When you press the buttons in that sequence, the gate blocking access to the chest to the west (#4) will open.

4 - Locked Chest

This chest is one of the secrets in the game. You'll need to complete the nearby Three Buttons puzzle to gain access to it. Inside the chest you'll find a Map and a Tome of Energy. The Map will give you a hint for the Tetris Islands puzzle in the Sewers.

5 - Turtle Egg / Button

You'll find a Turtle Egg on the ground here and a button on the western wall. When you press the button, you'll open the secret door to the west, which will release an Ogre to attack you.

6 - Secret Pedestal

The room with this pedestal is one of the secrets in the game. On the pedestal, you'll find a Tome of Knowledge.

7 - House of Needles

Your goal in this puzzle is to avoid the spike traps and pull three levers (#10). Each lever will open a gate leading to the nearby Power Gem (#12). There are some safe spots in the middle of the puzzle, and you should run from safe spot to safe spot when making your way to the levers.

8 - Levers

9 - Gold Key Cache

The lock for this cache can be found on the western side of the House of Needles (#7), between the two levers (#8) on that side of the puzzle. Inside the cache you'll find Rogue Boots.

10 - Lock Picks

You'll find Lock Picks here.

11 - Potion of Resurrection

You'll find a Potion of Resurrection here.

12 - Pedestal

If you destroy the underbrush blocking access to the pedestal here, then on it you'll find a Spirit Mirror Pendant.

13 - Power Gem

You'll find a Power Gem here, plus a Greater Energy Potion and a Greater Healing Potion on the pedestals next to it. You'll only be able to reach this location by pulling the levers (#8) in the House of Needles (#7).

14 - Orb of Vilson

You'll find an Orb of Vilson here. (If you can't tell, this is a reference to the movie Cast Away.)

15 - Pedestal

On the pedestal here, you'll find a Hub Key, which will unlock the Hub windgate (Exit C).

16 - Pedestal

On the pedestal here, you'll find 10 Pellets.

17 - Throwing Axes

You'll find two Throwing Axes here.

18 - House of Braids

For this puzzle, you'll need to navigate a 4x5 grid of pits. Each time you step onto a closed pit, the four pits immediately adjacent will toggle their door, either opening it or closing it. That means to move around, you'll need to make sure you always move to a pit with at least one open pit adjacent to it.

Your goal in the puzzle is to pull the four levers on the sides of the puzzle, which will open the gate leading to a chest (#20). You might also want to pick up the Iron Key (#19), since it will give you an easy way to return to the puzzle if you end up falling down into the Sewers. A solution for the puzzle is shown on the map above. You can also follow these directions (starting from the pressure plate): SSSS, grab Iron Key, EN, pull lever, WNE, pull lever, WNWSWW, pull lever, N, pull lever, ESESWS.

19 - Pedestal

On the pedestal here you'll find an Iron Key. The key will unlock the "shortcut" in the Sewers, which will give you an easy way back to the House of Braids (#18).

20 - Chest

Inside this chest you'll find a Maul, one of the epic weapons in the game.

21 - Loot

At this spot you'll find a Gold Key and three Broadhead Arrows.

22 - Shrine of Air

If you place four Power Gems on the table in the center of the shrine, then you'll be granted an Essence of Air.

23 - Kilhagan Sign

This sign will give you a clue for finding the Hidden Shrine.

24 - Locked Treasure Chest

You'll receive a clue for this treasure chest in the Cemetery. When you dig it up, you'll find a Crystal Shard of Protection and a Jeweled Scepter of Ruling inside.

25 - Crystal Mines Entrance Puzzle

You'll get a clue for this puzzle from a stone head to the south (S3), which will tell you to follow the "way of the snail." That is, you should proceed slowly across the pressure plates before you, waiting a couple of seconds at each one before advancing to the next. At the last pressure plate, if you moved slowly enough, then the exit gate will open. If not, then the demon mouths at the gate will splash you with some poison gas, and you'll have to try again.

S1 - Stone Head

"For every force there is an opposing force. There are two sides to everything. This duality permeates the whole universe."

S2 - Stone Head

"I am the left eye. I saw where the meteor fell."

You'll find Antivenom in front of this stone head.

S3 - Stone Head

"If you wish to enter Crystal Mines, you must take the Way of the Snail."

S4 - Stone Head

"This is the elemental shrine of air. Air is rune of dexterity, storms and flight. Northeast is whence the forces of air are strongest."

S5 - Stone Head

"Follow the footsteps of Kilhagan the Wise."

S6 - Stone Head

"Bring forth four power gems to fuse them into the essence of the element. Not all of the gems lie under skies; some of them are buried deep underground."
