Yes, most definitely get armor! And when you can, get a protection spell - you'll need it before too long. The two quests on the two sons are two different quests - does that make sense? Don't worry about the troll one at the moment, though, and the one Acornia is talking about involves a rather strong opponent.If you can catch the baddie for the guy in the barn, you get a real nice present. Sounds like you're really rolling along!

Oh great - I think I just sold all mine off arrrrrggghhhhh I hope I stashed some at George's or I'm gonna have to buy it back at 12 times the price I got paid for it. Sometimes I'm not too smart [okay, so most of the time I'm not too smart] lol lol

If the two little boys are separate quests then I guess I'm SOL on the one in the Farmlands. I absolutely cannot get that one to appear - but I'll keep trying periodically. Maybe I'll hit on the right formula.

Ah, maybe the one in the farmlands that Ingie mentioned is not actually counted as a quest, more of an explanation later when you find the troll bunch.I can't remember it ever showing up on my game either.
Don't worry about the armor, you'll no doubt find more. Besides, unless your strength is up a lot, it's heavy. Just at some point it will be good to have, because the baddies become more difficult, and you will want as much protection as you can get. Don't forget to periodically hold down the alt key, so you can see hidden stuff all over the place.

LOL Everytime get a couple solved, find a bunch more. One time actually manage to get three quests done at the same time by talking to one of the merchants twice. So far only got the Aleroth quests done, I think.


Never resist a generous impulse.

I finished it a while back and got almost all the quests. I think the game took me 3 months to play.

I never did get the assassin. I found him but was never able to make anything happen other than have him tell me to get lost.

It's a fun game, and I can't wait until they do another one! lol

I think it took me close to 200 hours to finish it, but I looked in absolutely every nook and cranny, because I was so amazed I had so much with which to interact, and then I replayed scenes several times to try out different things. I did all the quests but three I believe, just because I didn't want to do them. It was a great game, and I'm another that is going to be in line for Riftrunner and for DD2.

I'm sure you've all been waiting with baited breath to see how I've been doing, right? Of course you have lol

Well I made it to level 16 and 1/2. I just poisoned the orc well and now I'm off to Captain Matrix to give him the good news and hopefully get an invite to Castle Stormfist so I can look for the wizard Zandalar. I'm still not sure how to catch the cattle thief at the Farmlands - did anyone else get this quest and have a suggestion?

I found a cave that had a couple of not very nice and very strong bandits in it - they wiped me out before I could blink - luckily I save right before I went in so I'll attempt to go back in later.

I still haven't figured out how to solve the plague problem in Rivertown nor found a cure for the two poor victims. Guess that comes later. Also I haven't found out who's been tampering with the harvest. Poor Hugh is going to be moving if I don't get on the stick.

Other than I now have 22 un finished quests right now I'm doing just swell laugh

Syd, I found 3 plague victims, and have a quest for each of them. You might want to go back and find the 3rd one.

I found out how the crops are being poisoned. You will have to descend into one of the many caves and come out alive. Have you got the polymorph skill yet? It helped me in some almost impossible places. Happy hunting.

Well Row I can't go anywhere right now because I'm being held captive for the next 40 years by Duke Janus slapforehead

And some *&(^ imp stole my pyramid teleporters so I'm elstucko until I can figure out how to get out of here. I've even resorted to washing dishes for the cook but can't get him to inspect my work <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" /> I think I would have been better off with the plague. I am now in the process of trying to find Zandalar - sure hope when I do he can get me out of here.

I haven't got the polymorph skill yet - I'll grab it the next time I level up. Sounds like something I'm going to need - I could probably use it right now <img border="0" alt="pacify" title="" src="graemlins/pacify.gif" />

You'll get out of the castle eventually once you've served some time as Janus' errand-boy.
Then the fun really begins...

Well can use a statue instead. There's a place where you can find a cat statue and use it.

Janus already sent me to look for his white cat - which I found and who refuses to follow me. He did tell me to head back to Janus for further instructions (that bossy little twerp) and on my way back I stumbled on the kitchen so I thought I'd lend the cook a hand.

I do have a cat statue - also a spider statue that I used once to see what happened laugh


I'll tool around the castle to see what happens - sure hope I can find my teleporter stones.

Syd, are you really sure you don't want to go back to a save before you went into the castle???You're not going to have your teleporter stones for a while...Oh, and the cattle rustler quest, look to the poor section of town. For the washing dishes, have you dragged everything into your bucket, and then picked them back up before you talk to the cook?

Hi nickie - I already decided after being in the castle for a bit to try this part later when I'm a bit stronger and have more potions etc.

I went to the Archer's Guild and found the little boy whose parents are being held hostage. Killed the mercenary and the chief bandit guy and got one key but am not sure where to look for the one the little boy dropped.

I'll head back to the poor part of town and see if I can discover who that cattle rustler is laugh

I went down the into the cave that had the poison and destroyed all the barrels - then went back to Hugh. I still must be missing something because the quest is still showing not completed. Think I'll head back to the cave and look around again - must have missed something down there.

I also cleaned out the spider cave - yuck - I'll have nightmares for weeks on that one.

I'm about DD'd out right now - my eyes are crossing so I think I'll call it a night and see if the morning brings any new insights.

There should be a baddie living in the cave with the poison, and he has a key - wherever that key fits, will solve the quest (big conspiracy, ya know).It'll tie in to another quest.
For the key to the kid's house, I think I found it by pressing alt north of the house. Be sure and save before you go in, kinda tricky.

That quest generates alot of subquests and experience points. How high in levels should you be before being blessed and killed? Went up five levels after the blessing to level36 but not sure that's enough has bought it with the dragon.

Gad I can't keep track of what quests I have now. I'm thinking I may avoid the kidnapped victims for a bit longer lol I got the key from the orc I killed down in the poison cave and Hugh has no clue where it fits so it's off to find something it works in.

Found the cattle thief (but I didn't turn him in, so that one quest I guess I failed). I had been down there before but because I never talked to Tom first it didn't tell me that it looked like someone was butchering cattle - I just remember seeing lots of meat whistle

Missed talking to Balin the first time through the poor town so now I have another quest - to find a stolen necklace. 'Cept I have no idea where to look or what it looks like. Luckily I haven't sold any jewelry other than gems. Hopefully the guy that stole it didn't pawn it somewhere laugh

Syd, I got the polymorph skill by picking up a book in one of the caves. It lets you change an enemy into a friendly animal like a frog or a rabbit. However, you only get experience points if you kill the animal after. Sometimes I've had to polymorph a whole crowd of baddies and then pick off the little critters later. Then teleport to a bed because it drains your mana.

I found out the hard way that the little critters you polymorph eventually turn back into themselves if you don't kill them. lol

lol Syd, that was more my style as well, and I hated having to kill cute stuff, rather bash ugly monsters. But Rowan, you're sure right - it can be helpful in a bad situation!
As for the key Syd, let me know if you need help. I think re the cattle rustler, you get points either way. Isn't it interesting how some of the quests give you a moral choice?
And...I don't think the kidnapped family is too difficult for you, there just are a lot of wrong ways to go about it, thus the save.
Acornia, I don't know, depends on your strategy I guess. I think I was a 37 at the blessing. Did you get the divine weapon before you were blessed? And do you have high spiritual stats? That helps a lot - and if you don't, helps to get the (mental blank) little things you put on your stuff to up your stats. laugh

No just wondering if should complete the dragon suit first. Missing the amulet for the trio. Will work on the spirtual stats. Any way of getting back into Dr Elrath's house? Cured two of the plague victims but got another one or two to do.
