Walkthrough (please note this is entirely by memory, if something is wrong or out of order, email me) (also a tip, save at every scribe. a. Training This is easy, no need for a walkthrough here. b. Journey to Traycus Along the way you will find a few tents housing bandits. Each tent has five bandits you can kill. After you kill them power punch the tents until you destroy them to get 10 dinars. You will come across a big rock next to a wall, you must lift it and open the chest to find a key. Use the key in the keyhole behind the waterfall to open the gate. As you go along you will find a few chests with 100 dinars each, also you will run into a few rock walls, power punch them to continue on the journey. Near Traycus you will see a small cave entrance, ignore it, you will come back to it later. c. Traycus Upon entering Traycus the villagers inform you that a Cyclops has blocked the river with a giant boulder and injures the villagers who stand up to him. First cross the empty river and walk up the wood ramp ahead of you. Talk to the lady and she will inform you she has lost her mothers cookbook and is distraught because it is a family heirloom. Go back down the ramp and immediately to your right is the house with a shelf of cookbooks. On it is her mothers cookbook, return it to her. When she takes it she finds a key between the pages. Walk down the ramp and head towards the farmer's house with the fence, to the right of his house is a bridge you need to cross. Immediately to your left is a different wood ramp. Climb the ramp and jump into the river on your left, swim to the left until you find a chest. Open the chest and you will find a teddy bear. Get in the river and swim ahead, then turn left and swim under the bridge until you find the way out of the river. Turn right and walk towards the well. When you reach the well you should see the tavern and another building. Enter the other building and give the bear to the man inside. He gives you the key to the Cyclops. Head to the gate with the giant fence around it and inside you must battle the Cyclops. To defeat him, try to get at his sides to attack. After you defeat him, He removes the boulder and is swept away with the tide. In one house there is a man who asks you to deliver a letter to his cousin, say yes, you will need it. Go to the farmer who's crops are growing again and take the wheat he gives you. Take it to the mill to get it made into flour. Now you can return to the cave that you passed earlier where Ioles waits. d. The Vines Ioles informs you that the river has rejuvenated the vines and wonders if you want him to take a look. This is when you take over as Ioles, first off climb the vines. You enter what looks to be...well, I dont know. There are bandits and archers here, just run when you encounter the archers. It isn't much of a maze so I wont go into detail. You then enter a city which I don't remember the name. e. (?) First go to the house that Aphrodite resides in. She will say to you to tell herc. to go to alpsius and talk to a guy. Leave and go to the house right by it, inside is a girl who lost her cat. Go to the house with the vines (the one that the vines aren't behind a fence)and climb up to the top. Jump to the catwalk and you will find the cat. Return it to her and she wants to bake a pie for you but has no flour. Give her the flour and she bakes one for you. Take the pie to the house where a lady says she is hungry. Give it to her and she will let you use her secret passage behind her fireplace. Now head to where there is a small pool of water and walk around until your action icon appears. Press A and you should pick up a small key. Return to the hungry lady's house and use the secret passage. Climb the vines and jump onto the catwalk that leads to a chest. Inside is the Gem of Dispel, which you need to free the mayor. Go to the house in the middle of the town and inside is the mayor, free him and he will give you the key to Thrace. Now you can go back to Herc. f. Journey to Thrace With Herc. return to Traycus and go to the door that leads to Thrace. Inside is a path to Traycus. Along the path you will encounter a series of switches that you must activate in order, which is the first one you should encounter until the last one you encounter. The paths get a little tricky but they shouldn't cause to much trouble. Upon activating the last switch you can now enter Thrace. From Thrace you can go to several places, one being the sacred garden of shrines. In each town there was an altar and a man asking for a 100 dinar donation to a god. Pay all of them and you get a medal from each. You then activate shrines in the sacred garden of shrines with the medals. The last villager remaining is selling a small calfskin for either 100 or 200 dinars. Buy it, and return to Traycus to the tailor shop and have it made into a leather coat, it's free. Go back to Thrace and talk to Ioles, take over as him and with the coat, you can now travel to Alpsius. g. Journey to Alpsius Not really much here, just fight some guys. When you approach a fork in the road take the left path. It leads to a switch that you must activate. return to the fork and take the right path. Soon you will reach the door that was previously locked, it leads to alpsius. h. Alpsius Not many villagers will talk to a mortal, and one of the few is selling something. It is a skin of some sort, and for 300 dinars!!! You must buy it though, and return to Thrace to give it to Herc. As Herc. take it to the tailor in Traycus to get it made into a coat for him. Now return to Alpsius as Herc. Being half-god, Herc. can talk to the villagers. Find the one who wonders what his cousin is doing in Traycus, give him the letter and he will give you Prometheus's torch. Now go to the blacksmith dude and talk to him, he will tell you about the Minataur. There is another path that leads to the guy asking for a 100 dinar donation to the gods which you should talk to. Return to Traycus and along the outside circle of the town, there are several other doors. Go to the one that has a sign saying, "do not enter". Enter it using Prometheus's torch. Inside is the first minotaur. Just beat him up until he is dazed, the throw him into the hot magma. Return the heart to Hephaestus in Alpius and he will make you a rune. With the rune, go to the secret door in Alpius and talk to the man near it. He will ask you a riddle and if you have the rune Herc. Will answer correctly and the man gives him the key to the door. Inside is the same area you took Ioles through before reaching the city with the former mayor of Thrace. Most houses are locked, but all you need to do here is enter the big door on the opposite side of town. Inside is a sort of maze, and since I can't remember the route to take I ask anyone who does to send in the walkthrough and I will give credit where credit is due. This minotaur is a bit harder. First you must power punch all three gongs to make the hot magma appear. Then just beat him up and throw him into the magma. Return his heart to get another rune. i. Journey to San Tomanicus You will come across several groups of soldiers along the way, all in threes. About halfway to San Tomanicus on your right is a cave, ignore it, you will return later. j. San Tomanicus Immediately take a left and go to the ship at the end of the dock. The lady will tell you she would like you to get some things for her. Leave the dock and along the left cliff wall you will see another path leading to a cove. Swim out to the small boat and the woman will give you her spare net. Return it to the woman on the ship and she will then need bait. Take the money and one of the buildings on the walkway above has a picture of a fish on it. Buy the bait from the shop owner (I think it cost more than the lady gave you) and take the bait to the ship. She gives you a clam in return, which a lady will shuck for you. She is also located in a building on the walkway. Inside is a pearl that you give to the village leader located inside the tavern. She gives you the key to the third minotaurs labyrinth. Unlock the lock on the pedestal and then open the door to the labyrinth with the rune. This is as far as I have got. More to come as soon as I can get there. --------------------------- 8.
