You arrive near or around where the
Gargolye landed. Although it seems as though Graham has
made an error in calculated where it landed, cause the
Gargolye and the Sword are not there. A noise is heard
from a distance and an Archer is fighting with an Iom
Monster. The Monster calls for the guard to attack, but
the Archer's people did not do anything. The Monster cuts
off the drawbridge and then notices Cypress. They then

This is where you want to get Graham's
level up to around 9. But don't make a big issue out of
it. Just have him do your killing. The battle is not too
tough. Just keep away from the Rat Flies and the Blaze 2
of the Dark Mages. Kill the Hell Soldier and continue.
After the fight, the Archer lowers the
Drawbridge and talks to the Force. Mayfair asks for the
Sword of Hajya back. The archer then says that he will
talk to King Emild about it while the force camps. NEW
WEAPONS!!! Buy everybody a new weapon, save and exit.
At the castle, the Archer tells the King
that they are here to reclaim the Sword of Hajya. Emild
holds it up and just as Deanna goes to reclaim it, a rock
falls and nearly crushes him. King Emild them reveals
himself as Gordon, of Iom. He wrecks the castle and runs
away, letting his monsters handle it. The Archer (Chester
as he is called) gets mad and joins the force.

This is when you want to Level up your
characters. Get everybody to Level 11 (those Hell
Soldiers are worth a bit, as well as the Rat Flies), but
do not promote them at Level 10. Like last time, promote
Non-magic useres at Level 15 and Magic Users at Level 20.
Graham may still need leveling up anyways, and Chester
will, that is for sure. Grab the Protect Milk from the
chest and use it on Luke. Now, as far as difficulty, just
another easy one. Really nothing to worry about. BTW, I
hope you are still having Luke and Slade use Heal 1 every
round. For 10 Exp a pop, you cannot go wrong. Once they
all have reached 11, take and kill all the monsters to
After the fight, a Mage named May comes
and says that she came to save the King when the castle
crumbled. Mayfair tells her that the King has already
been murdered and a man named Gordon has taken his place.
May, furious, then asks to join the party. They travel
down the tunnel and meet up with Gordon, which starts the

Even with Gordon, this is not a tough
battle. Though this is the best place for Experience. Get
everybody up to Level 12 in this battle before killing
Gordon. Once you kill all but Gordon and the Priest, and
get in the middle somewhere, Gordon will summon 5 Zombies
to attack. Kill the Zombies but be careful, because they
can poison their target. Now get rid of the Priest, and
then go after Gordon. He should be easy. Just have Luke
get close to him and watch what will happen.
Once you kill Gordon, he will drop the
Sword of Hajya and Deanna will pick it up. Mayfair is all
set to go back to Cypress, but a voice is heard in the
tunnel that says that they have captured Nick, and that
the only way to get him is to go to Portobello and sail
to Iom. Mayfair decides to go to Portobello. You then
reach camp. Do what you have to (make sure to remove any
poison). Exit and you will arrive at Portobello. The Iom
army immediatly spots Cypress and starts to defend the

Some of the monsters are new here, and
are quite tough. The Master Mage has the deadly Blaze 3,
so be on the lookout for that. Get everybody up to Level
13 here. Have Deanna kill the first Skeleton to get the
Steel Sword, and have Graham kill the first Hell Sniper
for the Robin Arrow. Also grab the Quick Ring from the
Chest. That should be given to Deanna. The Zombies are
still a pain to get rid of, so get them at a distance. DO
NOT use Freeze on Zombies or Skeletons! Doing so will
hurt them, but only about 6 HP for a Level 2 spell. Get
rid of the Priest before doing anything more. Kill the
Master Mage to finish this battle.
After you defeat the Master Mage, he will
say that Yes, Nick has been taken hostage at Algam, an
inpenetrable fort. Mayfair tells the Force to get on the
boat, that they are going to Algam. But when the arrive
at the docks, Iom monsters are already there. The leader
orders the rest to defend the boat to prevent the rest
from getting in.

Not a terrible tough fight, though you
can have your hands full in it. Don't worry about
leveling up here, although if you do, great! If anybody
is at Level 14 or over, let the other less experienced
ones come and take over. Have Jaha take the Battle Axe.
Anybody can take the Running Pimento, but don't use it
just yet. The toughest part comes when you hit the middle
wave with the Master Mage. Use the Checkerboard Formation
(no 2 Force members are adjecent to each other) and
approach the Master Mage. After that is killed, move on.
Have someone who is not at Level 14 kill the Arch Knight
and give the Power Spear to Dawn. Kill all the monsters
to move on.
Cypress has taken over the ship, but
Mayfair says that something is wrong. Someone then shouts
that there is a reason for that. It is Randolf and Sarah.
Randolf said that they lost the battle at Algam Fort, and
only himself, Sarah, and Claude escaped. Randolf tries to
tell the Force to get off the ship. As half of the force
gets off, the other half is left on the ship as the
bridge collapses and the ship sets sail. Now you only
have half of your force.
Save and continue.
