This walkthrough is based on the tips given by James Follett in the
alt.fan.dune newsgroup AGES ago! Many thanks James!
You play the part of Paul Atreides, the central character of Frank Herbert's
novel. The game starts with your arrival at the Atreides Palace. Events at the
palace itself are in italics
(the player, yourself)
Leto Atreides (your father)
Doesn't really do too much.
Jessica Atreides (your mother)
Helps you with your ESP, water of life (later on!)
Atreides Master at Arms, trains your Fremen troops more effectively
Primarily concerned with spice flow etc.
Emperor Shaddam IV
Emperor of the known universe..Send him spice shipments and he's happy!
Arch-enemy of the Atreides family. Actually your (Paul's) maternal
grandfather. Can't seem to accept your claim to the planet
the na-Baron (heir to the Barony) and the Baron's nephew. A nasty peice of
Family mentat. (Human computer) Plans the attacks with you and Stilgar on the
Fremen woman who helps find Stilgar and smuggler villages. Goes back to her
sietch after finding the first village. For a bit of fun, go back to her
sietch (Tuono Timin) with Chani and listen to her reaction!
Fremen leader. With Stilgar you begin to form an army and start ecology. Also
introduces you to Chani
Your partner in the game. Introduces you to her father who is the ecologist.
Knows the Fremen well,and has an effect on their motivation.
Chani's father and the planetary ecologist

Recruit for Ecology
Game starts in the palace
Talk to Leto. He will ask you to find Gurney, who is in one of the sietches
around the palace.
Talk to Jessica. She will tell you of the properties of the spice you are
mining and muse about the effects of it on you.
Talk to Duncan Idaho. He will note that there is no spice left, and
something has to be done. He suggests that you try and recruit the Fremen in
the nearby sietches to mine for the family.
Go to Carthag Harg and RFS
Go to Carthag Tuek. RFS. Gurney Halleck is here, ask him to return to the
palace with you
When you arrive at the palace, Leto notes you have Fremen mining spice,
congratulates you, and tells you to keep an eye on them. He then asks you to
search for a stillsuit which keeps moisture in when you're in the desert.
Talk to Gurney. He will tell you that the Fremen in Carthag Tuek mentioned a
Return to Carthag Tuek and talk to the Fremen chief. He will comment on your
interest in the stillsuit, and tell you of a stillsuit maker in a nearby
Fly eastwards to discover Tuono Tabr and the stillsuit maker. He will give
you some stillsuits and explain their operation. He will then tell you of
two other sietch leaders willing to meet you (Tuono Tuek and Carthag Tabr).
He will also mention that there is a harvester there and say it would be
easier with the troop using it. Click on the modify equipment option and
give the troop the harvester to use. Note the difference in spice production
Go to Carthag Timin and RFS. This troop is v. important as they are able to
"prospect" for spice, discovering the amount of spice located in the area
around a particular sietch. This allows you to send other troops to the most
abundant areas of spice. They give you a map showing the spice density of
the sietches you have already visited. As they move around the planet this
map is automatically updated. When the chief has finished explaining, send
the troop eastwards to Tuono Tuek.
Return to the palace
Leto will praise you and ask you to go with Jessica and search the palace.
She is in the room in front of the Throne Room. Ask her to go with you, and
you will both discover the communications room. Leto will make speech
praising your efforts re: the Fremen recruitment. Jessica will be exhausted
from sounding out the rooms so tell her to stay in the comms room. Duncan
will say that mining would be more efficient if you had a spice harvester.
He will then recall that you mentioned about a harvester at a sietch and ask
you to look for more of them if possible.
Go to Carthag Tabr and RFS. Send them to Tuono Tabr
Go to Tuono Tabr and talk to the Fremen chief there. He will tell you that
the troop found the harvester in an abandoned sietch north-east of them. He
will give you directions to Tuono Harg.
Go to Tuono Tuek and RFS. They will say that the area needs to be
prospected, but that's OK because you've sent the prospectors there anywhere
and they're well on their way. Change their occupation and send them looking
for equipment, they will head towards Tuono Harg as that's the nearest
sietch with a harvester.
Go SouthWest to discover Tuono Clam. A very rich sietch in spice terms. The
prospectors should have arrived at Tuono Tuek by now
Go to Tuono Tuek and send the prospectors to Tuono Clam.
Go back to Tuono Clam and wait for the prospectors to arrive. Give them a
crysknife and an orni, they'll be really pleased with the Olin and it'll
make their prospecting easier with quicker movement between sietches.
Go to Tuono Tabr and ask the troop without a harvester (originally from
Carthag Tabr) to search for one. They'll return with one from Tuono Clam.
Go back to the palace.
There will be a message from the Emperor telling you he will be in contact
regarding the first shipment of spice. Talk to Duncan. He will ask you if
you've seen the message and then say that the spice production has to
beincreased. He will tell you that the Fremen who told you about the
harvesters mentioned vast spice fields to the south of the planet.Talk to
Gurney and he will tell you that the Fremen who told you about the
harvesters also supplied the stillsuits i.e. the Fremen chief in Tuono Tabr
Go back to Tuono Tabr and talk to the Fremen chief face to face. He will be
amused by your interest in spice and tell you of a sietch south-east of his.
Take an orni south-eastwards to discover Tuono Timin and Harah. She will
tell you about mourning for Jamis and go with you to show you more sietches
in the south.
Go to Habbanya Tuek. RFS and send them searching for equipment
Go to Habbanya Timin. There will be a warm welcome here! RFS and send them
searching for equipment
Go to the prospectors. They should now be at Tuono Clam. Send them to
Habbanya Tuek and Habbanya Timin
Go to Carthag Harg and send the troop searching for equipment.
Return to the palace
Go into the Mirror Room. Jessica will be here. Talk to her. She will notice
Harah and tell you to go out into the desert alone. Tell Gurney and Harah to
stay in the palace. Harah will make a lot of noise, but she will stay.
Walk outside past the orni and take one step away from the palace, any
further and it's harder to remember how far you moved. You can die in the
desert as well!
Click on the wait until morning option and there will be a picture of Leto
in reverse telling you that a message has come from the Emperor asking you
for a spice shipment.
Go to Duncan in the palace and talk to him. When he asks you to send the
amount the emperor requires, argue with him. He will ask you if you want to
send all of it. Agree and go with him to send the spice. The spice will be
shipped and the Emperor will thank you for it and tell you he will call
again in 7 days.
Walk into the throne room. Jessica will stop you and say about the visions.
Leto will say it's all over his head and asks the family (including Harah)
to go out onto the balcony.He praises you about the work going on, and turns
to talk to Gurney. He then notices Gurney is missing and asks you to try and
find Gurney with Jessica.
Ask Jessica to go with you and walk out into the corridor. She will discover
a room on your right, and Gurney will be on the floor having been laid low
by a trap in the door to the armoury.
Talk to Gurney and he will tell you about the trap.
Talk to Jessica and tell her to stay with Gurney
Go into the Throne Room and talk to Leto. He will send you through to the
communications room where Thufir Hawat is standing, waiting behind the
Talk to Thufir and ask him to come with you across into the room with Gurney
Talk to Thufir in the room and he will disarm the trap
Talk to Gurney and ask him to go with you. He will only go into the armoury.
If you try and go anywhere else he'll say something like "No, I have to go
into the armoury"
Go into the armoury and leave Gurney there to examine the weapons
Talk to Thufir and he will ask you to try and find a Fremen leader to help
you drive the Harkonnens off Dune
Find Harah and talk to her, she will say that she's heard of a great leader
but can't remember his name.
You should now have limited ESP (as a result of that desert walk!) Question
all the tribes re: Stilgar
Go to Carthag Tuek and move the smaller group at Tuono Tabr to Tuono Clam.
Tell the troop at Habbanya Timin to search for equipment. As you ask here,
the chief tells you of Stilgar and his reputation Talk to Harah, and she
will tell you that she knows where he was born. Shihaya Clam now appears on
the map of sietches
Send the prospectors who are now at Habbanya Tuek to Habbanya Tabr and then
back home to Carthag Timin.
Go to Shihaya Clam.
Talk to Harah, she will tell you to fly North-westwards to find Stilgar's

These form the core of your army attacking the five forts E of the Harkonnen
Go to Habbanya Tabr. RFA and send them to Carthag Harg
Return to the palace
Go to Thufir and talk to him. He will tell you to take Gurney Halleck with
you to train the Fremen so they are an effective fighting force
Go into the armoury and ask Gurney to go with you. When you first click on
his picture, he will say something like " I've been studying these weapons,
interesting really!" When you ask him to go with you he'll say something
like " Yes, Paul, I'll go with you!"
Go into the Mirror Room and talk to Jessica. She will tell you of your
increase in ESP. (It's worth talking to Jessica every time you go in the
palace at the beginning as it increases the range of your ESP contact with
Go to Carthag Harg and leave Gurney there. This is your training camp
ESP prospectors at Carthag Timin and get them to drop the knife. Send them
to any unprospected areas in the South
Any troops without any spice equipment, recruit into the army. You only need
4 expert mining groups to satisfy the emperor's spice demands and any debts
incurred by visiting smuggler's villages.
Return to the palace.
A message will arrive from the Baron Harkonnen informing you that he has
devastated a sietch.
Talk to Thufir. He will make a comment about the Baron being a long-time
enemy of ours, and another message will arrive from Feyd-Rautha despising
the Fremen army and calling them scum
Thufir will tell you that it is best to attack the Harkonnens in Stilgar's
native area and ask you to inform Leto
Go to the Throne Room and talk to Leto. He will say that he will not listen
to Thufir and takes a thopter to demand an explanation.
Talk to Duncan Idaho and he will tell you about the Fremen needing ornis. He
will tell you of smuggler's villages
Talk to Stilgar. He will tell you that Fremen don't usually go to villages
Ask Harah to come with you
Talk to Harah. She will tell you about a village in the fish's mouth
Stilgar will comment about having seen a fish-shape out of the orni
Take an orni and fly south-westwards, towards the lowest tip of the mouth of
th fish-shape. Harah will spot the village
Buy one item of equipment. This will locate the village on the map
Go south-east a short distance and you will find a deserted sietch, Habbanya
Clam. There are 3 ornis here, so send any mining troops nearby to search for
Talk to Harah, she will ask to go back to Tuono Timin. Her job is over now,
you won't see her until the end. If you want a laugh, go back when Chani's
with you later in the game and talk to Harah. Great reaction!
Send nearby troops to search for equipment.
Walk out of Tuono Timin and to one side
Talk to Stilgar and he will tell you about Chani. Oxytn Tabr now appears
Take an orni and go to Oxytn Tabr. Go into the sietch and ask Chani to come
with you. Walk out of the sietch and go to the right one step. Again, too
far and you'll forget how many steps you took!

I wish you were here at a time like this!" Carry onto Cemilyn Harg.)
Go to Cemilyn Harg and RFA. Send to Carthag Harg (your training base)
Return to the palace
Jessica will stop you in the stillsuit chamber and tell you that Leto has
been shot down by the Harkonnens and killed. She tells you to talk to Thufir
Go to the communications room and talk to Thufir. He tells you that the
ornis were too conspicuous and muses on how the Fremen have managed before
Move out into the corridor
Talk to Stilgar. He will invite you to ride a worm
Go outside the palace and take one click back. This will activate the CALL A
Click on call a worm and click on the palace
Go to the communications room & talk to Thufir. He feels that there is
something more than just the worms that keep the Fremen hopes alive and asks
you to search the palace with Jessica
Go into the room where Gurney was caught by the trapped door
Ask Stilgar to stay there
Go to the Throne Room
Ask Jessica to come with you and go into the room where you left Stilgar She

point, refuse.You will die if you drink it at this point in the game
Go to Shihaya Harg. RFE and send them to Shihaya Tuek.
Give them bulbs when the windtrap is finished
Go to Shihaya Timin . RFE and send them to Shihaya Tuek.
Give them bulbs when the windtrap is finished
Return to the palace.
Send the emperor 50% more than he asked for. Do this by arguing with Duncan
until he says "50% more than he asked?" and then agree.
Go into the conservatory
Talk to Jessica . It is vital that you do this, as she tells you about the
water of life. Without this, you won't win the game! Simple as that.
Send troops out searching for arms
Go to Tuono Tabr (nearest sietch to palace with water cache)
Go in and drink the water Stilgar offers you. The screen will blank out for
a few minutes and Stilgar's face will fade in gradually. Don't worry about
it! It's meant to do that!)
Return to the palace
Go to the conservatory and talk to Jessica. She will say how amazed she is
by the powers you have and tell you that you should be able to talk to all
the Fremen now.
ESP a group at Bledan Tuek. Arm them with krysknives and send them on an
Go to "fish's mouth" village, Oxytn Pyons and buy some weirding modules.
ESP a troop to search for them.
Order the troops at Bledan Tuek to attack Bledan Harg
Go Northwest along the narrow gully just below the fish's belly to discover
an abandoned sietch - Oxytn Harg. There are lots of knives here!
Send army troops to search for knives
Go Northwest to discover the village Tsympso Pyons. This is a very important
village as it supplies all arms. Buy all the arms you can. Don't bother with
spice equipment, it shouldn't be needed.
Go Northeast to discover Tsympso Tsymyn. A very important sietch, now
referred to as TT. Deserted but there are many arms including weirding
modules here. A Harkonnen generated disease will soon strike at the most
crowded sietch, so the object is to make the training base the most crowded
so it will strike there. (see later for reasons). It won't strike at
recently captured forts (hence sending Bledan Tuek troops to attack Bledan
Harg, making sure that the only big gathering is at Carthag Harg).
Divert all the troops searching for arms to TT
Go to Shihaya Clam
Take an ornithopter eastwards. There is a tightly wound spiral of highland
there. Aim at the centre of the spiral. You will discover Tsymspo Harg. RFA
and send to TT.
Check to see where your wandering troops are by clicking on the right hand
mouse button. This will tell you the size, destination, occupation and
motivation of your troop. In the case of the prospectors if they are at a
sietch, it will also tell you how far through prospection they are. All in
all, a very useful tool.
Send the fully-armed troop to Ergsun Tuek, a long way for them. All will be
One of your troops based at TT should now be either expert or skilled. Make
sure that they are fully armed and send them to the training base. The
disease should strike at the training base about now
Go to Carthag Harg and leave Chani there to cure them
Go to palace
Pay any outstanding bills from the villages for arms and so on
Go to Carthag Tabr
ESP the troops at TT and send them searching for weapons
Take an orni Northeastwards to discover Arakeen Pyons, this is right by the
Harkonnen zone. Ignore Stilgar's warning and the village will be on the
right. This smuggler doesn't haggle at all Buy ALL WEAPONS AVAILABLE. A
major source of weaponry for the training camp
When Chani sends you a message re: curing the troops at the training camp,
send them looking for weapons. Send one of the troops from TT here ready for
Send the troops here searching for weapons, arm them with all the weapons
bought from the smuggler.
Arm them to weirding module level If necessary, visit the village again (but
not before returning to the palace and paying the debt off by talking to
Duncan Idaho. The smuggler will not allow you to buy any weaponry unless you
pay him for the first lot!). You should aim to have 2 or 3 expert/skilled
troops with kryknives, lasguns, and weirding modules
A message will have arrived at the palace from Feyd- Rautha informing you
that Chani has been kidnapped
Go to the palace
Go to the communications room
Talk to Thufir - he will advise you to send a troop on an espionage mission
to find her. Look at the motivation of the Fremen as she has been kidnapped.
It goes right down.
Send the troop originally from TT on an espionage mission. They will find
Chani at Arakeen Harg
Wait until the 2 or 3 expert/skilled troops are armed toweirding module
Order them and the espionage troop to attack the fort
Tell the most experienced troop to change occupation
Tell them to search for arms
They will find atomics there.
When the battle starts going your way, pull out the group with atomics and
send them back to the training base
When the battle is won, go to the fort and collect Chani. Again, note the
effect on the Fremen.
There will be a Fremen troop there who have been forced to work for the
Harkonnens. RFA and send them on an espionage mission.
ESP one of the groups at Tsympso Tsymyn and send them on espionage
ESP one of the groups at Bledan Harg. Send them on espionage
ESP the group you sent to Ergsun Tuek. Send them on espionage
From now on, you're on your own.. There are far too many things to be done
for me to tell you. This should take you till about day 12 of the game, the
following tips may also help:-
The strategy of one troop attacking and then spying allows you to find the
Harkonnen forts as swiftly as possible. As soon as you find a fort, send the
nearest troops to attack.
There are arms at the forts you can pick up as you work your way through
them. It is vital that you improve the troops' arms as soon as they capture
the fort. They can only capture 2 or 3 forts with krysknifes.
There are a few villages around, I've found 4 or 5. Don't be afraid to send
Fremen searching for arms there if there are none at the forts.
As the forts are captured, visit them and liberate any captured Fremen. It's
easier to send them searching for equipment and leave the rest training.
When you contact the prospectors to move them around sietches, if there are
any arms there, modify the prospectors equipment. They'll probably say
something like "This equipment is of no use to our current occupation" but
they will take them anyway. Then get them to prospect at recently captured
forts. Modify their equipment again, and take the arms off them again. As
they are specialised in prospection, they won't complain about the arms
being taken off them. This is very useful to move arms around forts quickly
As soon as you get 5 or more troops at a fort, collect Gurney and take him
with you. Leave him there for a maximum of 2 days or so and he will hone the
army. Then, move him to the next troop. This way the troop will increase in
experience very rapidly.
As soon as the Fremen turn the fort into a sietch, move onto the next one.
This should allow the forts to topple fairly quickly.
When the last fort has been captured, go to the palace
Talk to Thufir. He will ask you to gather Chani, Stilgar, himself, Jessica
and Duncan at a sietch near the Harkonnen palace (Arakeen.)
Go to one of the sietches nearest to the Harkonnen palace
Talk to Thufir. He will ask you to gather 10,000 troops with atomics in the
three sietches nearest the palace
Talk to Thufir. He will then tell you when it's safe to attack. When he
tells you, only then..
Talk to Stilgar, he will ask you whether to launch the attack, agree with
The shield around the Harkonnen Palace will fall.
Go to the Harkonnen palace and watch them credits roll....!
