III.HOW TO BE EVIL
Being evil in Black & White is much more harder than many would
thought.Kill everyone and you will end up restarting the level
You want to be evil?
then you instead of killing you should sacrifice little children,
make people suffer,Starve your followers,Be the most sinister god that
has ever lived be creative...
Just read this guide if you want to be evil...
IV. BASIC STRATEGIES
These are some basic strategies for being evil.Currently these are send
by many people all over the world.I will add my own strategies in later
Please send more.New strategies are always welcome
My strategies :
1. Sacrifice is good,You should sacrifice many little children
since they give you lots of prayer points ( near 16 000 ).
2. Breeders are the key for success.More breeders -> more little kids
-> more people to sacrifice.
4. Looking after farmers is also very important,because if there
are too many people wonґt starve.You should have 1 farm for
5. Teach your creature following miracles fireball,lightning
(increased or extreme version if possible) and Megablast.
These spells should be enough for your creature.
6. Good way to get your people believe more in you.Make some shields
( Spiritual or Physical ) they give you near 100 belive points per
7. A good way to impress opponents villages is to release a flock of
wolves or bats in there since these spells give you lots of points
you can impress his/her village very fast.
8. Good way to make your temple look evil.Is to download a custom
skirmish map called playground from PlanetBlack&White.Once the
custom map is installed,start it and use exreme megablasts to
destroy the village.Do this until your temple looks evil.
These strategies are send by some readers of this Faq ;

An effective way of taking over enemy villages the evil way is to first
set fire to their totem so the enemy god doesnt get points, then set
fire to their food/wood holder, then send in your
creature to capture and sacrifice them until they see you are their new
god. Oh and lightning helps to set more fires also.
- Send by Grant 2
Gather some trees 3 or 4 and a rock or 2, put them on top of each
other, now get the Fireball miracle & cast it on the trees & the rock
now the rock(& the trees) should be on fire, you now have a Rock On
Fire and can toss it at enemy villages (or you're own) and gain belief.
This tactic is good if you need to take over an enemy village, toss the
rock it will crush/burn their village a very good.
- Send by Eli Tayrien
This isnґt a purely evil technique of taking over villages, but i have
found that if i have influence in a villiage, sometimes i can get up to
300 belief by "dribbling" fireballs - i cast one fireball, and then
just click the right mouse button really fast, dropping it and catching
it... the more people you do it around, the better.
* MISC. INFO
This section contains information about many things in game for
exsample silver scroll solution,misc tips & tricks etc.
Just read and find out....
These are send by readers of my faq...

- One thing that some people have not seemed to notice is that in
boulder throwing, you can throw the man that watches you too.
- You can also beat your creature for being scared instead of
- And for the drowning fishermen, I immediately threw the woman into
- After Nemesis showed up, another silver scroll appeared by the
beach. It was some guy and girl yelling at me for killing their
sister when she only wanted me to help them. They screamed that
they won't forget this. Regardless to say, they were thrown into
the ocean along with their sister.
- Oh yeah, one more thing... the miracle flock is good to teach your
creature because it gives good belief, and when you are evil it
releases bats rather than doves.

- In the opening when lots of little black, white, and grey dots
swirl around and form either the Lionhead logo or your "godly
symbol". well if you move your mouse during this time you can
disrupt the sequecnce, as in where ever the mouse cursor goes, it
drag little dots with it.
- You'll have to confirm for yourself, but when i played land three i
place 3 combined scafolds next to a field of grain and got a
miracle dispenser (which should have cost me 6) this field WAS NOT
under construction.The same has happened when i place 3 scafolds
next to other "high scafold cost" buildings....
- You do know that man made miracle dispensers only act as a meat
packageng plant for your own miracles, they don't create new ones
like they did in land 1
- Read the read me notes in the game directory, they have helpful
hints with custom logos and vilager names and stuff.

- This is an interesting text file, i have not messed with it yet but
inside it is a list of parameters describing everything i have
chucked into a vortex....
- I think with a little 'cut -n- pasteing' you could load up a map
with several hundred beach balls, of megablast one shots in it...
attempt at own risk.
- In land three you know that invulerable guy who can't die, feed him
to your creature and he gets "pooed" out a few mins later, i'm not
sure but i think you can kill/banish to the void this guy by
tossing him in the vortex. you'd think he'd pop out on the other
side but when i got there.
- I didn't hear his smart ass comments, but then again i didn't look
- Suggestion for raiseing an evil creature. initially choose the
chimp he will learn and grow the fastest. then once you have the
basics learnt (and don't require as much intellicence) do a brain
swap with either the sheep creature (although it'd require doing
'good' in order to get it) or find a creature CD download and get a
leopard or ape
- When killing large/tall buildings find a big rock, carefully
position it on the VERY TOP of the building and let it fall, it
does more bang for the buck in terms of effort.
sorry about writing so much, hope some of it is enlightening...

brother, just kill the brother and show the woman his corpse, after
destroying her house that is....

- For looking in on your creature's developement not all of the i
important information is in the same place. in the creature cave
amoung other things check your creature's strength, realize
this will go down if you don't give your creature lots of rocks to
hold. When you press the 'Esc' key, click on the statistics tab,
then on player stats and scroll down. you can see your
creature's alignment change as well as your creature's growth (the
percentage of its full size reached). Under creature stats the only
important thing to note is the creature's alignment shown in
numeric form (ranged from +1.00 (100%) to - 1.00 (-100%)), the rest
you can get from the cave or by foucusing the creature.
- Remember, if you as a god do a good deed, and do it while your
creature is not looking, you WILL NOT corrupt your creature with
the harmful knowledge of benevolence. also its easy for you as a
god to undo any 'goodness' you spread.
- Don't forget, when you swap creatures you will loose some of its
- in level two 'The Sea' silver scroll, bite the bullet and save the
kids, the enlarge creature miricle dispenser is worth it. Once you
have that enlarge your creature and make it hold and carry the
largest rock you can find. as long as your creature is moving when
it shrinks to normal it will
still carry the large rock, a rock to big for it to usually carry.
have your creature carrying around a mega rock (for its size)
should increase its strength rateing.
- IMPORTANT!! when slaping your creature aim for the legs and slap it
hard and fast. If you do it right you can litterally knock your
creature flat on its back. Also PLEASE slap your creature
around when ever it gets scared, the last thing you need is a mega
monster thats 100% evil and afraid of the dark.
- Try and increase the creature's evil rateing by training it to use
the lightning blot on fish, yes fish. It is possible (as well as
birds) with alittle luck and skill and it has little chance of
hurting you by mistake.
- When you first start the game and are going to your village run
ahead of the villagers as fast as you can, you might be rewarded
with a temple that starts out looking evil ( at least I was).
- You can teach your creature how to use fireballs with only 1 one-
shot miricle. with the leash of learning on drop the fire ball on
the ground close to the creature, and don't set anything on fire.
then quickly 'catch' the fire ball (pick it back up with the action
button). the creature (if it paid attension) has ow had a light
bulb go off over its head, wait for that to disappear and for your
creature to stop pointing. then recast it and catch it again.
(repeat for awhile)
Now it is time to begin....
These strategies will guide you through each of the islands in
game.Just read forward to find out what would be the most evil
way to solve all the quests in the game.
* FIRST ISLAND
* Completing Strategy :
Just follow gold story scroll instuctions.Nothing more really..
Also when the woman asks you to bring his brother back crush her house
with boulder and kill both her and her brother by throwing them to the
When your creature throws Sable the trainer be sure to praise your
creature,when Sable has taught you everything eat her with your
creature or just kill her thats the evil way..
- SPOILER -
Just before following the big animal to the mountain,go back
to your village and use lightning bolts to make destruction in the
village.Also by doing this your creature will slowly learn to
use lightning miracle.
At this point destroying your village doesnґt matter since Nemesis
is going to come and destroy it anyway so go on and kill & grill.
* SILVER SCROLL QUEST SOLUTIONS :
Throwing Boulders ( Practice )
Pick up the boulder aim it carefully to the house..Throw and
crush the house and people who are living inside it.
You will get a Beach Ball for the reward of this quest.
Let fishermen drown also throw the woman who gave you the
quest to ocean.
You will gain one time miracle dispenser "Creature Strenght".
Circle of Stones
Once you have taken the quest crush/burn the the house of the man
who gave you the quest and then eat him with your creature.
You will gain nothing by doing this.
Building a ship
Bring your creature near the singing sailor pick them up one
by one and eat them with your creature.
You will see a scene after killing them nothing more...
Kidnapped Children ( Dead piper is the best piper )
This is a must complite quest since the reward is so good.
Follow the piper with your creature pick him up eat him,him no
matter what there is only one fact the Piper man must DIE !
Once he is killed you will get lightning bolt miracle dispenser.
Use your creature to throw a boulder to his house thus crushing
it,Hermit will now try to set a fire in your village but before
he has time to do eat him with your creature..
You will gain one shot water miracle when you kill/eat him.
When your creature learns to fight this quest appears beat
Sleg ( Ogre ) take treasure and get out...
You will get yet another beach ball and healing miracle
Farmers lost sheep
Burn the farmers house,eat his sheeps and finally throw him
until he is dead or drown him.Just use the most sinister way
that you can imagine
You will get nothing from doing so except your alignment goes
to more evil.

VII. RAISING YOUR CREATURE "THE EVIL WAY "
After choosing your creature it is time to teach him a trick or two.
More is coming in next update :
1. Teach your creature to go walk with a large stone in its hand
when it does this,It will gain more strength.
2. Making your creature goes walking, it prevents your creature to
3. Remember to beat up your creature when it is scared.
4. Teach your creature to eat little kids or adults,they boost
alignment very much to the bad way of course...
5. Remember to praise your creature when it wants to sleep,since
your creature grows better when he rests it is good to make
VIII. CHANGING YOUR CREATURE BY " CHEATING "
This information is Ripped straight from Voodoo Extreme.I just
thought to pass it along
Dustin L. shot us off the following email regarding "Functing with
files in Black and White". Of course, I think you've heard of Black and
White (call it a hunch). Check it out (Kind of a plump bastard, but
oozing with information):
I was messing around with some files in the Lionhead dir and came
across the creature files. I then figured out how to change your
current creature to any other creature in the game. Even the Orge! All
the files you need to mess with are in the Data\CRT\ directory. Make
sure you back it up just in case. Lets say you are the Cow. Your
creatures file is bcow.CBN.
Now lets say you want to be the Wolf. All you do is delete your current
file, which is bcow.CBN and rename bwolf.CBN to your old creature,
which was bcow.CBN. Start the game and you have a Wolf running around.
I'm going to explain it again. To be the Orge you do the same thing.
Lets say you still have the Cow. The Orge's file is bgreek.CBN. Simply
delete bcow.CBN and rename bgreek.CBN to bcow.CBN I have noticed one
thing odd... The first creature I changed to was the Orge from the
Madrill. I have tried most of the other creatures and have noticed that
their foot prints no longer change. They are stuck at the Orge's foot
Also the Rhino is there, but I have yet to try him. My Tortise running
around land 1 is so cool! Changing creatures like this seems to have no
effect on you or your creatures alignment. Their current stats stay the
same regarding damage and food. Scars and bruises also seem to
As always, make sure to wrap your rascal if you try this (back-up your
IX. STRANGE THINGS
These are some strange things that have occurred while i was playing.
1. I have spotted that your creature can eat rocks/stones/boulders
and even like them.
2. Also my creature likes to eat beach balls,i wasnґt watching in
the first island my creature ate his beach ball.I thought he ate
a human so i praised him ever since it has been eating beach
