|Once in Watling, you may notice that there are not
any young people and that the town is full of old,
senile people. Not entirely true. Go to the house at
the upper right hand side and talk to the Old man
there. He will tell you that he is only 21 years old and
that the monster of Verlin's Cave is causing the
people of Watling to grow old. He gives you a Map
to Verlin's Cave.
||Avoid staying at the Inn if you can. Although it may
be free now, keep in mind that nothing is ever truely
free. Put it this way though, you can stay now and
skip later to miss a huge payment that you have to
make, or you can skip now and stay later and pay
only 18 Kim a night. If you are too far from leveling
up, and need it though, stay.
|Before going to Verlin's Cave, I suggest you take a
side route. There is a good shields over west in the
mountains. That is the expensive Sapphire Shield.
That shield is stronger than the Silver Shield, and
when sold, it sells back for 2000 Kim! There is
also a bit of money in these mountains.
||Take the left trail east of Watling. This leads you
Verlin's Cave. Did we forget something? Like,
maybe a Lantern? Yes we did, and therefore, you
should go here for a Free Lantern. Watch out for
the Needlers (again, Phantasy Star?) they can poison
you and the only thing that can cure poison, is a
Poison Balm (back in Parma), or the Minister of the
Church can use one. When ready, continue north
from there into Verlin's Cave.
|The map is here. For the full map of Verlin's Cave,
click on the link. I recommend you take the stairs to
right. That leads to where you want to go a lot
||Here is the map for the 2nd floor.
|This is the guy you have to meet. Before talking
to him, use Herbs to restore full HP. When you are
ready, talk to the man. He says that he stole the
youth from the villagers, and will do the same for
||You now fight Cyclops. He can be hard unless you
have Super Strength. Approch him. When his hand
moves back and lips move, back up, for it is going to
cast a lightning spell. When it is done, move forward
and slash away at him, remembering to move back
when his hand moves back and lips move. When his
right hand is gone, all that is left it the left one.
Continue the strategy and he should soon die, leaving
1000 Exp. and 1000 Kim. Now return to Watling.
|Talk to the man that gave you the map and he will
say to ask the villagers about the rings. They will
say that Deepdale is southwest of Watling. Talk to
this guy and he will give you a Map to Deepdale.
||Now do you remember why I said stay away from
the Inn ealier? He charges you 800 Kim (or it could
be more, I don't know) for you to stay the night.
After that, he only Charges 18 Kim a night. Oh well,
don't say that I never warned you.
|The road to Deepdale is full of harder and faster
monsters. But it is also a short road, so it balances
