You'll be able to get fire spells once you go to Monaghem. Good for you getting the Tinefoil. Built up he can be quite effective against a bunch of stuff you will encounter.
I don't know if you stumbled onto the tree area - are you still in the swamp? I didn't go there until the tournament, and then that didn't happen, but it may be what happens when you go there before the story line laugh I think I am towards the end - I'm in the Shadow Realm, but haven't yet been able to get past the third bad guy. His fairies have spells that make you move opposite of what you are trying to do (when you press the forward arrow, you move backward). I had almost won, and the fish thing knocked me off the post, such a dirty little trick.

That Shadow Realm sounds tough! What can you do about spells that make you go the opposite way? Is there anything to counteract it?

I'm in the mountains now, and am stuck at a place with another Shadow Elf. I killed several of them, but this one has a lot of stone thingys. eek

I think I'll go back to the swamp. There is one place that you can get to from there to go into the forest, and I want to find it again. I hope I don't run into that Tournament Tree!

There's one spell that does counteract it, but I didn't pick it up(I've forgotten now which it is, but probably light, chaos or air, since I don't use those fairies). Once you know it is happening (and I never experienced it up until now) you can just use the opposite keys. Remember you can check your map, because it will show if you are going in the direction of the big tree, which branches from the regular swamp route. I am still stuck in a fight with the shadow elf general...I can sure see someday when I replay this, which fairies I would use, just hate to do it now because it takes so long to build them up.

I know what you mean about building them up! I caught a few that I want to use, but it's going to take forever to get them anywhere near the level of my others. The ones I'm using now are in the 30's, except for one fire fairy. eek That one is still kind of low.

I'll let you know the exact names later when I get home, nickie. I know I have a gremor that's evolved, or whatever the highest is the stone guy can get, one of the little mushroom guys that's evolved(not Arbory, the higher one). a water fairy that's evolved, a tin(whatever) that I used a fire stone on, and another nature fairy that looks like a lizard that has also evolved. Then there are some in London, including a chaos fairy that's at 17.

I don't have too much of a variety yet. I was so excited when I started getting them I didn't really pay that much attention. The funniest looking one, I think, is the blue "Bloop" fairy. lol

I'll let you know the exact names later.

Hi nickie: My 5 active fairies are: Symgot, Nature, level 35; Gremrock, Stone, level 38, Abnobery, Nature, level 31, Tinezard, Fire, level 15 and Oceana, Water, level 35.

Others I have are Rasrow, Chaos, level 19; Blumella, Nature, 28; some Corgots, one of which is 17; Goop, Water, 11; some Stobots and Vesbots, Stone, under 5; Vitrella(sp?) nature.

I think the hardest part for me is deciding who to train! rolleyes

Hi Jean, I know exactly what you mean. I have tried three different parties, building up two different fairies and keeping the other three, each time, and I still can't get past the general. Sounds like you have a good party. I wish I had built up a water fairy.Right now I have the stone guy, two nature fairies (V and B), tinezard(fire) and an energy fairy. Have you gone back to London and looked around the house? Really a riot with all the fairies roaming around!

Nickie,

In the fairy garden there is a dwarf in a cave that you had to use the nature card to get rid of the bush leading to it. He has the energy spells.

Hi nickie: The dwarf Zanthia is talking about also sells a Darbue fairy for 400 gold coins. Apparently he is a male energy fairy, and the description says he is a "contrary". Usually that means the opposite of what you want to do, so maybe one of those is what's making your spells backwards. Under his first spell it says, "No discharge", which probably means once he hits someone they can't fire (I guess). I bought him last night but haven't tried him out yet. I'll let you know what happens.

Hmmm. I guess I was wrong in what the Darbue does. The other fairies kept shooting at me even after I hit them.

Thanks Zanthia, I had forgotten about that dwarf. Jean, I think a lot of it probably has to do with its strength, so if its still low in number maybe it can't overcome a tougher fairy. I tried a Darbue and wasn't happy with it, but I used the Violetta(or something like that) which is basically the same thing and it seemed a lot more powerful. Of course the Darbue changes to another form as well.

I spent hours today in the swamp trying to find the back way to the enchanted forest, but couldn't find it! Has anyone here gotten in the back way? If not, where is the key to the gate which is past the hut? I can see pixies running around in there and would like to get them. Well, the good thing is I'm building my fairies up.

Jean, when you go to Monaghem you'll get the key that will unlock that gate. But there is a real bear of a fight in there! As far as the back way to the swamp, go out Tiralin the back way,not where the fountain is, and there is a sign post there for Dwarf Tower, Swamp and something else. If you try to go to the DT, you'll come to a precipice (sp?) with the air spirals, but if you go around the rocks to the right, there is your passage to the swamps.
And yeehaw - I finally finished the game! I didn't cheat on the fights, but I did use the gold cheat when my party was down and needed money. What a fun game! Thanks so much Stitchman, Zanthia and Jean for all your help and getting me through this.
