to the left of the house after the great tree, there are islands to jump to. You follow a succession of them, maybe four or so, and with some you may really have to hit the spacebar not to sink. the scene will change, and there is a fence with a gate to the shadow realm.

Thanks, nickie. I found it and am now in the Shadow Realm. I hope I find the rune of return, though, because I'd like to go back and build up more mana points

I think I've fought 2 shadow elves in there (maybe 3). Those guys are tough! I can handle the regular fairy duels easily, though.

I never did find that rune, so I had a lot of treking back and forth! I also had to replay many times the fight with the Shadow elf general, which was tough for me.

The bad thing about the Elf General was that I fought him once and won. Then I tried jumping on the floating stones and died. When I popped back into the game I had to fight him all over again!!! For some reason that part didn't save.

After I defeated him the second time I made sure to save the game.

laugh That is one thing about the game I didn't like, the strange saves. even when I would hit save, it would still take me back to the beginning of a sequence.

I got the key to the bone gate. That was a really hard one to get, with those tricky jumps. I haven't gotten the first pixie yet, though. Does anyone remember how they did that? There probably are sparkly things somewhere that make steps, but I haven't been able to find them. wave

No, I confess I didn't find anything, so left the little brat where he was.

Finished!! happydance I managed to get all the pixies, too. For the little guy on the high rock in the dark regions, I had to find the sparkly spot to trigger the steps. It was difficult because I had already accessed the area once via air spirals and got something on the other side of the pillar. I think the sparkly spot the first time triggered money. When I went back to it the second time it triggered steps.

I tried to uninstall the game and it's telling me it can't because the uninstall file is corrupt. I'm not sure what to do because I don't want to leave it on my hard drive. Any suggestions?

nickie, what is your "save" file called in the program? I wanted to save my games to a zip disk, and accidently moved them instead and renamed them. That may be why my uninstall won't work. I copied them back to the program but don't know what to call them.

Congratulations Jean, finishing is always a great accomplishment.

lol lol I think 150 or 160 hours. I'm very slow, and very nosy -- I have to see everything.

Yes, this is the end of this thread. wave
