Thanks Stitchman, but no, now this has become a personal vedetta - I know I must be overlooking something obvious and I am bad at directions in real life...Besides this gives me the opportunity to go round and round and kill a jillion bad fairies. Um, should I have a rune for the cottage?

Hi nickie:

Yep, there is a rune for the cottage. I have it, but don't remember where I got it.

BTW, I could swear I captured a 6th fairy, but when I go to the fairy book I don't see it anywhere. Does that mean I really don't have it, or is it hidden until I go back to London?

The fairy book will only list each fairy only once, so if you capture 2 worgots, there will be only one listing for it in the book.

Also, if you have a fairy evolve (this happens at certain levels, the fairy book tells which level they evolve at), the new fairy will be listed and the old one will no longer be there. So, to actually have a completed fairy book, if you evolve a fairy, you would then need to go back and capture the old one again. The same is true if you trade a fairy.

I currently have about 45 fairies and will probably not be getting many more. laugh <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> laugh

I was looking in the wrong area completely! blush I just figured the sign was there, so it had to be in that area.And I did get the rune, very helpful.
Re what you just mentioned - for some reason I have two Lanas, and I'm not using either one.

I'm glad to hear you found the Tower, nickie. I managed to buy the Swamp City rune.

I tried to fight the fairies on the way to the hut in the forest where you were stuck earlier, and am still not strong/fast enough for them. I did get 2 fairies' levels up one more, again, but I need to learn to move faster.

Thanks, everyone, for your advice! wave

Thanks Jean! Glad you got the rune - have you visited the swamp yet? And thanks to every body from me as well - couldn't play the game without your help!

Hi nickie:

No, I haven't gone to the swamp yet. I'm thinking that maybe I should strengthen my fairies some more, since I can't beat the guy on the way to the hut, or Seamus in Tirilin. If I'm not able to in the next day or so I'll head off to the swamp to see what's there.

Have you been there yet?

Yes, it took me a bit of tro and froing to get more mana and potions. There are a couple fights there where you are against multiple opponents, like the battle with Seamus. You probably know this already : Strength is important in those, but so is realizing which fairy is best for which opponent. Even if you don't feel like looking at the chart, you can tell if your fairy can deal with the other - the game will tell you "ineffective" or "highly effective" or something like that, when you fire at the enemy. The good thing is, if you lose and do it again, the creatures you are up against change, sometimes giving you a better chance.
I am still trying to get past the third shadow guy before I can get in the tower. No matter how they change, they are all tough!

Forgot to ask you Jean -did you figure out how to change your fairies in battle? You just use the page up and page down, in case you didn't.

I did figure out how to move my fairies up and down in battle, but it doesn't matter a heck of a lot since I just realized I have 3 nature fairies!!! I also have a stone guy and a water fairy. My stone guy is at 16, one fairy at 15 and the other at 9. Since I'm not very effective, though, I get squelched a lot! wave

So far (after the swamp and to the tower) I don't think there are other kinds of fairies to capture, with the exception of a couple psi ones. When you build up your guys a little, they will change dramatically. I think your stone guy changes at 20, not positive on that. I've been busy building them up, and I think the swamp is easier than the woods.

Thanks for the tip, nickie. Maybe I'll head on over to the swamp tonight, if it's easier than the woods. It wouldn't hurt to try! happydance

Does anyone know what it means when, for a fairy's passive spells it gives 2 squares, one solid green and the other rainbow colored? What is the rainbow colored one for?

I beat Seamus, finally, in tirilin and have gone to the swamp. I like training with the elf there since it's harder, but you get more points.

How is everyone else doing? wave

There are 3 ways for spells to be listed. I'll use nature as an example.

(1) If it has 2 green squares, then you can use a single or double nature passive spell.

(2) If it has one green square, and another color (let's say blue for water), you can then use a single nature passive, or one of the sellers will sell a nature/water combination spell.

(3) The 3rd option is what you described as a rainbow (again I'll use nature/water). This would mean you can use a double nature passive or a nature/water combination. In other words, the rainbow gives you the option of 1 and 2 described above. It is the most versatile. laugh <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> laugh

Thanks, Stichman! So many details to remember. I just realized that a person can switch between spells by using the middle mouse button. I have a wheel, and when I roll it my fairies show at the top. I don't really have a middle mouse button as mine is one of those optical mice. It says in the book I can configure the hot keys in the options menu, so I may have to do that.

Thanks again! wave
