AUTHOR: George K. Ison
This beginning walkthrough will get you through Senora, Midtown, and Westham.
You'll learn where most
everything is and find lots of food and weapons.
Each of the four characters individual game has a partly interactive segment
before the introduction
is complete. In the Fighter's room, click the trunk and choose to open it. Use
the eye icon to see
what's inside, then get everything, including the dagger.
The Thief pauses near an old wagon and a large locked box. Quickly get the Jimmy
bar near the
bottom of the screen. You can try and bust the barrel with your hands. When the
Half Breed shows
up, quickly fight him 2 or 3 times till he raises his arms. Click him and use
eye icon to see he
has some gold coins and a silver chain. Take both.
NOTE: up screen, down, right, and left aren't always N, S, E, or W. Most of the

Westham is on the far
right side of Midtown as viewed on the map, which automatically draws as you

Talk to everyone. Each person only talks on a few topics, so everyone is
necessary to use all
topics. You should learn about the Undead. Now exit the Tap Room. Wandering
around the city,
you might be able to talk to a big troll. Don't ask him about the Black Sun
unless you want a good
fight. However, he does have a good axe.
If you kill a Half-Elf, you can get work papers for Midtown, and gold, a sword,
you can get work papers, for Westham, from other citizens there, provided you

another doorway, open another chest and look inside. Plenty of storage space!
Exit the building
and go screen right twice, then to the lower right to the warehouse district.
Look at the two building's doors to see they are locked. Look at the symbols on
the column to
the left of the left building door. For now, try once to break open the door. If
enough, you can actually break open the right building door. If you manage to
the front door, look at the winch, the A shaped stone column, and the large
slab with a hook.
You need a rope.
Sometimes a guide wanders around town and you can get him to bring you back to
warehouses. Then mysteriously the left building is open! If you don't see the
guide, just come
back to the left warehouse a time or two (if you don't have a staff for the
symbols column) and
eventually you can bust open the door. Inside, you can get weapons, food, and a

couple of barrels and go down again, then down screen to see a Black Sun symbol
on the wall.
There's also several barrels of sauerkraut. Go on through to more barrels and
sacks. Go up the
steps into another building where you've already been. Exit up the steps and

rope. In the well are more ropes, some buckets, and plenty of drinks. Now go to
the lower right,
then lower right again. You can open the gate to the old brick house, but it's

and enter the
building on the right to buy food and drinks if you need them.
From the old building, go up screen to a building with 2 doors and an alcove. In
the left door

To the left are
the marshes and ocean's edge, and straight from the intersection is the forest.
Kandt Forest has many wild boars, orcs, ogres, and robbers. Don't use
your "search area"
ability because time passes quickly and you'll likely end up in the forest after
dark. Quite often in
fighting, a group will give up and you can talk to the robbers. Near the extreme
