I'm stuck on Day Four-

Spoiler: ShowHide
I need a flute and I've seen one for sale in the city- but I don't have the money for it.  Is there another flute?  Is there a way to make money?  I'm stumped.

Also, I randomly got killed by the Barghest... how do I avoid that?

Go for a swim.  There's an island that is more than it seems.  There's something valuable there you can sell to the jeweller, but only if you can see through the illusions.  There might be a better way to get the money, but I haven't found it, yet.

For the barghest, there's a book in the monastery that tells you how to beat him.  If you have the bottle, , something else in the monastery can also help.  I think there is another solution to this puzzle, but it involves running, which I have never done succesfully.


I'm stuck not far from there:
Spoiler: ShowHide
After the flute gets stolen I pinched the shield from the blacksmith, but I can't get out of the city without him taking it back.  Is there anyway to get the guards to let me out the front gate, yet?

All I've been able to find from swimming around is a little alcove with a conch shell- which sells for 1 ducat.  I tried using the water-bored stone around and on the shell, but I couldn't find anything- so I'm wondering if I'm even in the right place...

Thanks for the tip on the barghest- I hadn't even thought of that, and it worked like a charm ^_^

I've managed to visit the fairies, and have recieved quests from the seelie and unseelie, but I don't know where to start to solve either.  The bard tells me to check out the village, but I go there and nothing new.  Still goblins there, but there isn't much to interact with.  The death poem when I try to enter the village seems to hint that I need to bring help somehow.

 No. I found a wounded pigeon but he just healed it and I used it to trick the giant into thinking I am strong. I don't know what other animals there are that would work save the raven but I don't know what to do with it. It just sits there in a tree with a shiny thing in its mouth.

I've also just given the brain to the scarecrow, although I don't know if I should have done that.

Made some real progress, I think, but I'm stuck again looking for a mirror.

I found the Changeling's Comb, which will let me disguise myself as a goblin.  HOWEVER, I need a mirror, and the only mirror I've seen is in the monestary... I can't pick it up and if I use it there I get killed.

I'm also stumped with getting out of the city without swimming and can't even begin to think of how to deal with the giant- or I could guess, but it appears I can't do that while the druid is hiding.  I know where my belt is too, but am stumped there too.

When captured by the goblins, try waiting around a bit until it's dark out- you'll be able to do something then.

The horseshoe is in the city stables in the open stable. I got into the city by using plant potion on the weed growing on the wall near the scarecrow. The potion can be found in the locked cabin in the woods area. You need the key to open the cabin which the old guy has. He'll let you take it from his inventory.

Spoiler: ShowHide
 To trick the giant, you need apples, a bag with sand from the beach, and the healed pigeon. When you talk to the giant say he's not strong and then you'll have a strength contest. Use the items I mentioned before in that order.

Assuming you have the flute already click it on the bard at your mercenary camp and he'll show you how to use it.

 Where did you get the acorns?

You can get money from gambling with the goblins with the horseshoe in your inventory, or from getting something from the island (which you need the self-bored stone to find) or from stealing from the tailor's tip jar.

At the right time the raven will drop the key in its mouth when you talk to it.

 I've been to the stable numerous times but have not seen a horseshoe. I gave the brain to the scarecrow and have the pumpkin, the hair, the nail, the lantern, a sharpened sword (no coin anymore!), apples, holy water, the love note, the belt advertisement, the dagger, the bone, the bag, and the shovel.

I gave the conch to the faerie after giving her cider on day 3. I got the coin out of the forest, but spent it sharpening the sword.

I solved her riddle but have no gold to throw in the well.

I found the grass for the sorcerer's apprentice.

I've solved the giant's challenges and had him stomp the barghest.

I know where to buy matches (presumably to light the lantern) but again have no gold.

I know where to get the flute but can't afford it.

Well, I've done the two faeries' tasks,
Spoiler: ShowHide
That is, beating the giant at the strength contest and defeating the goblins, and I've found the treasure at the bottom of the rainbow and attempted to use it to buy back the belt, but the jeweler says she has another buyer now.  Also, if I go back to the faerie realm, I am automatically taken to the faerie queen and she tells me that I will have my rest in the faerie realm.  Then the screen slowly fades to white, but I have control back, like I'm supposed to do something to stop it, but I don't know what.  If it fades all the way to white, the game ends, and I get what I assume to be the worst ending.  What am I missing?  How do I clear Maeldun's name?


Also, I've encountered many small bugs throughout the game, the most annoying of which is where the bard keeps telling me that I need to
Spoiler: ShowHide
go back to the village in the woods and get something important (which I assume is the warrior's skull) that the goblins may have left there.  Unfortunately, I've already finished that task; I've long since taken the skull relic from the village, and defeated the chief back at their camp.
  Without the bard to give me those subtle clues, I am utterly lost.

But if there are no dead ends then there has to be some other way to get out of the whiteness, right? I used the charm to save the princess to gain her favor hopefully for a better ending. I tried playing the flute in the fae realm to break the spell but that doesn't work. I really wish I knew what to do. The bard tells me to go to the fae realm so I assume I've got to break the whiteness spell and not just avoid the place.

I at least know what the pumpkin, mouse and crystal are for.

Spoiler: ShowHide
 Give the love poem from the stable to the fairy queen, then she'll want a pumpkin, rodent and crystal. Give those to her and you'll get a magic pumpkin. Give that to the stable boy to enable him to marry the princess. Unfortunately the princess still died in my game so he didn't end up marrying her.

I suspect the tailor (since the princess mentions him at dinner) or the sparkling eyed guy who lives in the shipwreck as the killer. I started the game over and when you first enter the main hall with the staircase you see the shipwreck guy upstairs but I wasn't fast enough to click on him. I always thought he was a faerie like the fox girl since her eyes sparkle too but I was never able to prove this in game.

Unfortunately, the fairy maze's solution is different every time you play the game, so trial and error is probably the only option.

I have no idea where there is a hair anywhere in the game, but I guess it's all about seeing the cutscenes, and maybe it has to do with the snake thing you get from the black tower, your fairfolk friend says something about it being used to identify people associated with the owner or something like that...

Jenimad -

Spoiler: ShowHide
Where did you find the black cloth?




Concerning endings (spoiler heavy):
Spoiler: ShowHide
So far I have found three of the endings:
1- Stop the goblins and stay in fairyland.
2- Decline to aid Geraint and Paradur in taking down the sorcerer.
3- Defeat the wizard by summoning the seelie queen in the late king's bedroom, without proving the murderer, saving the princess, etc.  This being the first "Good ending"
There are still two more endings.  I don't believe these include minor variations on ending three, such as the fate of the tailor and whether you recovered your girdle.  Saving the princess may not even be enough to reach ending four, as there were lines written in Ending 3 that seemed to imply she was still alive and in danger of a future assassination (unless I misread), which seems to imply there are variations of the same ending wherein she survives.
I think it's safe to assume that one of the five endings is the 'perfect' or 'just about perfect' ending, where most or all of the loose ends are tied up, with the murderer apprehended, etc,  Though it is also possible that ending three is the only good ending, and the perfect ending is just another variation of it.  That (probably) leaves one last ending, but does it fall between ending 3 and the perfect ending?  Or does is it something completely different?
Has anyone managed to get an ending other than the ones I have listed yet?
a side note: One of the official screen shots features what looks like some kind of confrontation inside the wizard's tower.  Are these screen shots actual game footage?  This would seem to imply an alternate final showdown, even.

On my first playthrough, I encountered the thief on the bridge and he wanted food, but I didn't have any for him.  On my second playthrough I made sure to have apples and that pumpkin with me all the time, but I never encountered him there.  Does anyone know how to trigger that event again?  And is there anything you can do for him if you do?

I'm surprised that so many people try this considering that in several "plot paths", the beggar will be here to block your path.

Not being able to cross even if he isn't there is a bug, which will be fixed shortly (apologies for the inconvenience).

BUT, there is another way across, which you were intended to take if the beggar is there. So your progress is not actually impeded.

it's mostly luck, I think, if you try enough times you'll manage to pass the bridge before you get the message about the fox, and then get it after you've passed. I think it would be better to go around though, and use the lily pads to cross the river, until the bug is fixed.

Once you have the matches, go into the jewelry shop and do something to irritate the owner (e.g. repeatedly touching the glass case or going behind the counter). Eventually the owner will order a guard (who must be in the store at the time) to throw you out, and once that happens, you'll  find yourself outside the city gates - with the matches.

* Princess Rhiannon is under a spell in the woods. The fox faery says I should be able to free her, but I don't see how.
* I can't afford the flute in the jeweller's shop (the miserly cow only gives me one ducat for the conch)
* I don't know where to light the lantern.
* I don't know how to get into the hole outside the ogre's lair.
* I don't see how to get a pumpkin.
* I can't get into the hole in the tree next to the ring of stones.
* I don't know how to help the pigeon with the broken wing.
* I'm not sure whether I can get the matches from the shop in the market.
* I've found the portal but can't get through it.

I have: sword; apples; acorns; parchment; love poem; conch; key; note from jeweller; unlit lantern; nail; self-bored stone; empty cider bottle; shovel; dagger; wounded pigeon; squirrel; bag of sand; horseshoe.

Spoiler: ShowHide
Q:Princess Rhiannon is under a spell in the woods. The fox faery says I should be able to free her, but I don't see how.
A: As far as I could tell, she's freed on her own, in time.

Q: I can't afford the flute in the jeweller's shop (the miserly cow only gives me one ducat for the conch)
A: There are many ways to gain coins in this game.  The goblins are one very easy source, and you thereby get the chance to keep the conch shell and the other valuable items you gain over the course of the game, to use in other ways that might gain honor and wisdom.  If you're intent on playing through, however, the tailor's shop might have your answer re: quick money.

Q: I don't know how to get into the hole outside the ogre's lair.
A: Whatever's inside that hole isn't very dense.

Q: I don't see how to get a pumpkin.
A: You need to convince the scarecrow.  He won't help you the way he is now.  If you give him something, that's a different story...and the proper gift involves getting very wet.

Q: I don't know how to help the pigeon with the broken wing.
A: Who is good with animals?

Q: I'm not sure whether I can get the matches from the shop in the market.
A: You can, but it's a tricky maneuver.  Are there alternative ways out of the city?  Perhaps one involving your character annoying someone else?

Q: I've found the portal but can't get through it.
A: Show the bard your bored stone and see what he says.

Here are some hints :D

flute

 I sold something, something I after defeating the giant, or you could play dice with the gobliiins


hole
Spoiler: ShowHide

maybe you can get the thing in the hole to come to you instead of trying to reach it


pigeon
Spoiler: ShowHide

you must heal the pigeon, someone who knows animals (and he is still around in chapter 5, just a little hidden, I gothim in chapter 5 cause I was late on this quest)


matches - hint 1
Spoiler: ShowHide

you can get the matches, you'll have to get out of the city but not via water,


matches - hint 2 more specific
Spoiler: ShowHide

maybe you can get thrown out


matches - hint 3 more more specific
Spoiler: ShowHide

maybe the jeweller doesn't like you touching her things


portal
Spoiler: ShowHide

you'll need the flute to get through



Now some of my problems:
Spoiler: ShowHide

You're not actually supposed to be able to sell the vase while within the castle; if you think about it, that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, now does it?

If you did anyway, try escaping via the window instead of via the guard room. Or restart if you must, it's only one minute from the beginning of the game anyway.

Yes, that's a technical error. A fix will be online shortly. But there's an easy workaround.

You are in fact telling the druid to give the key to himself. To get him to give the key to you, click the ARROW on the key, then close the inventory, then click the key on Maeldun.

Spoiler: ShowHide

Well, that's two questions I guess. You actually need to give the fairy queen those 3 items *before* you defeat the goblin chief. After you do that, you will get that scene with the white light and will never be able to go back there, even if you avoid the crappy end.

To avoid being trapped in the fairy land, there are a couple of solutions. The obvious one is to use the cold iron charm from the goblin camp, but if you used that already, just use the dagger on yourself.

Faery's test: a question:

Spoiler: ShowHide

Am I right in thinking that the door between two caves is the same (fire, cloud, etc) in each direction? In other words, if going from cave A to cave B would take me through, say, fire, then going from cave B to cave A would also take me through fire?

I ask because I've graphed the structure of the caves out on paper, and it doesn't seem to be possible to visit all rooms using only two objects if the doors are the same in each direction.


Faery's test: SOLUTION METHOD that does not rely on trial and error (assuming what I say in the spoiler above is true):

Spoiler: ShowHide

There are five rooms: purple (where you start), red, yellow, green and blue. Draw a large pentagon and join every corner to every other (so that you have a pentagram inside a pentagon). Now label each of the corners so each has a different one of these colours (the order doesn't matter). Take any two objects and pass through one of the doors in the purple room that you can get through. Note what object you used to get through the door and which room you end up in. Write the name of the object on the line joining the purple corner of your pentagon to the corner for the colour of the room you end up in. For example, if you use the feather and end up in the green room, then write "feather" on line joining the purple and green corners of the pentagon. Now go through the door you just came through to get back the purple room, and repeat for another door. (Be careful not to go through the middle door, which will take you back outside.)

Keep going until you have done as much as you can, then return to the purple room, speak to the faery and pick a different combination. Keep doing the above until you have written on each of the ten lines on your diagram.

Pick one of the objects. Lightly sketch out a new pentagram in a pentagon and copy on to it the exact arrangment of lines that are labelled with the object you have chosen. Repeat (on a new pentagon plus pentagram each time) with the other five objects. This gives you six new diagrams.

Now take these diagrams two at a time in all possible combinations (there are 15 ways to do this). If you find a pair of diagrams that enable you to trace a path starting in the purple room and visiting all of the other rooms, then the two objects in this pair are the two you need to choose to solve the puzzle.


This method works. The first time I tried it I made a mistake.

At the spot where the druid warns you, he is still there hidden in the trees, you can sorta see his robes right behind the tree on the left, you cannot talk with him, for some reason I got your bard's friend's dialoque in plain red letters (no dialogue boxes around). I just gave him the pigeon there, and he restored it. I don't know if that was a bug, but he was there, so I could heal the pigeon in chapter 5 even though the gobliiins was in the village.

you need the key, I don't know if you'll be able to get it back from the monk but once you have the key back, open the window in the library and get out of the monastery, then climb through the window (the monk won't be in the library) and you can open the glass cupboard and get the orb.

Now for my question. I have done everything I've stated above; but how do I get the orb?
Spoiler: ShowHide
 I've already gotten the key from the raven and returned it to the monk. Now what? Do I just keep looking for the raven? I've tried that and I just can't find it.


How to enter the goblin camp:
Spoiler: ShowHide
I think that since you've given the key to the monk already (you could have waited until you didn't need the orb anymore) you're never going to get the orb now. As an alternate route, defeat the giant and then ask him to take you to the goblin camp.

Sorry to post again, but how exactly do I beat Skullcrusher?

What I've read so far:
Spoiler: ShowHide
 You can use the bag of sand or the black crystal. Do I have use of the crystal later on in the game? If so, I'd rather keep it. How can I use the bag of sand? Skullcrusher challenges me and I'm forced to draw a weapon. The only thing I can use is the rusty sword, but it's too blunt to do any damage and I die. Is there a trick or something where I can sneak up to him from behind?


Thanks again ;D

no, you don't need the onyx crystal for anything else.  In fact, I found it somewhat of an oversight that you couldn't call down the might of the dark faerie on the sorcerer at the end.


I'm still waiting for some explanation on:

Spoiler: ShowHide
 how precisely to get to this mythic wizard's tower place that shows up on the map from the castle (and seems to be where the lighthouse is).  The reason being that I used the holy water on the first barghest and the charm to save the princess from pooka's enchantment, so unless I find this snake symbol mentioned there is no way of removing the barghest with what I have in my possession.  It's a shame that the horseshoe can't be used here to trap the barghest in the corner, since it's largely a useless one-off item for gambling with the goblins otherwise.

From the beach area one screen north of the mercenary camp, swim east to get to the island. Horseshoe has two other uses besides gambling, and yes, one of them involves the barghest.

Mega-spoilers-

Spoiler: ShowHide
I didn't really see all the cutscenes, but I just tried it out- and apparently he is the assassin.  The reasoning I gave (that worked) was that he wanted to set up a stronger leader... I gave a note and a bit of cloth for evidence.  I still need to work backwards, I think, to figure out what's going on...
And personally, I think that conversation at the large house might be a red herring- for the assassin anyway.  I think around the time of the assassination, someone was stealing your belt-thingy... which shows up at the jeweler's.  I need to replay the game, but that's my theory for the moment.

It does make sense if you pay attention to dialogue. You can figure out who was in the castle at the time by talking to various characters, and then by process of elimination (figuring out who was doing what during the night), can find out the assassin that way. You don't really *need* to see all the cutscenes to work this out


And yes, there are some red herrings too, but they make sense

Title: Re: A Tale Of Two Kingdoms
Post by: Huh? on 21 Jul 2007, 06:54
Jeni, that makes no sense at all. That person as an assassin is so off base that it can be said that he was chosen for one reason: so people would play again and again. As I said, a cut scene shows that it can't be they. Would an assassin demand that he be revealed.

Additionally, the note is not evidence of anything. Let's look: the note says you predicted so let us come together. Who is this person to make diplomacy? When was he told and why? Who is he to be told of a prophecy?

I really have to laugh? I'm sorry.

I must come to the conclusion that the authors decided on this assassin so as to make us play and play. This makes sense. Why? Cause it took them a long, long while to create this game. So to make that long effort worthwhile, we have to take a long, long time to figure (more like try and try again) out the culprit.

The real assassins, I submit, are the authors. They who assassinate logic and their own pixel reality.

With more thought, an assassin would make sense. It doesn't here.

Not to say it's a bad game. It's a good one. It's just to say, somethings were poorly figured.
Title: Re: A Tale Of Two Kingdoms
Post by: Fizzii on 21 Jul 2007, 07:04
Sorry, Huh?, but you must've missed a number of clues for the player...

Spoiler: ShowHide
To all the city folk, villagers, soldiers, etc, Maeldun IS the murderer. The assassin asks the apprentice to find Maeldun (but refers to him as the assassin of course).

The note works as evidence, because Seelie can't work out if Maeldun is fully correct without some evidence of it. But it's not proper evidence for the player, since anyone could've written it. There are two other items that you can use as evidence.


Being honest, I didn't know who the assassin was for sure until towards the end when we were finishing the game. Only Radiant knew for 2+ years. And then it turned out I was correct just by playing through the game, so you can't just say that the author was illogical.
Title: Re: A Tale Of Two Kingdoms
Post by: Huh? on 21 Jul 2007, 07:21
Fizzi, first off I see no evidence that this person did it. Maybe I missed something as I  did only get 80% wisdom.

However, the note proves nothing. In fact, it argues against this individual. As I pointed out, who is this person to make alliances? He is not in the realm's government. And why would that individual contact this assassin? He has no pull in Theylinn.

Moreover, why would the assassin demand that the assassin be revealed when he is the assassin?

To boot, if the assassin did what he did to make Theylinn rougher, how would he know that the daughter would be, or that she would marry someone who would be?

That you didn't know until you were told shows that it was arbitrary and a dice throw.

Hey, the game is well done, but it suffers here.


Title: Re: A Tale Of Two Kingdoms
Post by: Fizzii on 21 Jul 2007, 07:30
I didn't know *for sure*, but I had a good idea that it was this character that did it. I didn't make an arbitrary choice - the evidence pointed to this person far more than any other. Besides, someone worked out the assassin by themselves, so it can't be that illogical.

Spoiler: ShowHide
If you play through properly, you might find some more clues for yourself, and more explanation once all is revealed in the game. Basically the whole thing is rather complex and comes to a power play, and I'm sure you know of another bad guy around.


Spoiler: ShowHide
Try taking the full truthgem to the assassin for instance, then you'll get a better reason, even if you die :P


And to reply your post below - you don't seem to have paid much attention to the cutscenes before the beginning of the chapters.
Title: Re: A Tale Of Two Kingdoms
Post by: Huh? on 21 Jul 2007, 07:30
Btw, Fizzi, Seelie needs to work things out? Does he not see all?
Title: Re: A Tale Of Two Kingdoms
Post by: Huh? on 21 Jul 2007, 07:40
Fizzi, why would I take the truth gem to the assassin when there is no evidence that he is the assassin? The game demands I take it to the princess, so I can move on.

As I said, I got only 80% wisdom, so maybe there's evidence that so points. But--and I repeat myself--the assassin is overheard demanding that the assassin be revealed.

Now why is that done? Because as I said, the authors, having spent a long time making this game, wanted players to spend a long time playing.

No assassin demands to have himself revealed.

You put that in to misdirect. It makes no sense.

Fizzii I apologize for asking about the assassin. After digging thru the first 6 or 7 pages i saw numerous discussions about it and figured it had been revealed in the next 7 pages. Like i posted i didnt want to keep digging thru cause i saw a few spoilers that i didnt mean or want to see. I dont want to take anything away from this excellent game you all worked so hard on, and i hope you arent too upset. I would have figured out the assassin purely by process of elimination eventually by choosing answers and restoring until i got it. Yeah I'm that guy that reads the last paragraph of a book before i start reading it.

Now, Ive been trying to get on the caravelgames site but my comcast has been down most of the night and now i cant get on. In my post about the error, you said you could send me a save game file from patch 1.1. I was wondering if that offer is still good and you could send me one saved right at the very start of the game. Will that still fix my error problem when i get there? Im going for the 100, 100. email is zazzarmp@hotmail.com

Raven, giant, scarecrow puzzles are related to fairytales (try and think of a fairytale which features a raven, giant strength-proving test, and not-very-smart scarecrow).

Sorry if I am repeating someone else's question.  I only read about half of this thread because (a) it's 16 pages long and (b) in checking out spoilers looking for someone in my same situation, I ended up learning the solutions to like 6 different puzzles I hadn't even encountered yet, which is a bit frustrating since it detracts from the satisfaction of solving at least a few of those on my own.

Anyway, I'm in chapter 4--
Spoiler: ShowHide
My two biggest questions are:

-How do I get an animal for the druid?  I'd prefer not to use the well wish since I want to save it (and besides even using the well wish, I don't know what to do).  I found the squirrel and the acorns but can't seem to capture the squirrel--teh bag is apparently too small.

-Is there some way to play dice with the goblins without losing my bottle?  I want to be able to keep the bottle so I can get more cider later for use with faeries if necessary.  Once again, if I can avoid it I don't want to use the well just yet--I know I can wish for wealth but if there's a way to have the goblins' wealth, the cider, AND still have my wish un-used, then that's the way I want.

-Is there any point to wishing for a drink at the well?  It was hilarious seeing Cuppit again but it didn't do anything for me that I can see.

For the love of God... I've already played through, but without doing the giant side quest and getting a crappy ending all because I can't figure out how to pick up the bloody pigeon. 
Spoiler: ShowHide
From the moment I saw it, I said, 'better take that to the druid,' but nothing seems to make the bird budge and I've been fussing with it for three hours.  I've even tried giving all of my items to Branwyn (it wouldn't wllow me to) on the off chance it had to be carried seperately), and still it gives me a message simply stating 'The pigeon ruffles its feathers' the moment i try to move it.


Either kill me or help me, please...

Beat the game without too much trouble, but I have a few outstanding questions (about sidequests mostly). Probably some pretty big spoilers below.

Spoiler: ShowHide
 - I guessed the right assassin (just since he'd been obviously lying the whole time I guess), but when I gave the gem to the princess after that, the game crashed. Has this been fixed in the new version that was posted eariler? Hope so ... since that will necessitate starting the game all over again, it'd be nice to get a couple hints as to how to do some of the sidequests, as there are no logical ways to start them, or any hints in the game whatsoever, really. IE ...
 - Getting the belt back from the jeweller. I assume this can be done in the time she's out of her shop, but there's really no obvious way to go about this.
 - Helping the changeling ... he says he can't go through the gate because he doesn't want to. Maybe there was supposed to be a hint given somewhere, but I guess it was too vague for me  :P
 - Helping the apprentice. Perhaps this has something to do with the cider-making woman in the village, but who knows.
 - Using the horseshoe to beat the Barghest. This is more just curiosity really, as I want to see what happens.

Oh, and I don't know if these have been fixed yet, but a few fairly major crash bugs: 1). The previously mentioned one with the princess.  2). If you happen to have the goblin in boxer shorts appear in that screen to the south of the village (only happened to me once) and you talk to him, the game crashes after the first line of dialogue. 3). If you try to use the self-bored stone when Rhiannon is trapped in the forest, you can't leave your inventory and the game freezes if you hit escape. 4). If you play your flute a 2nd time in the main hall in the end game, the dialogue replays (in red) and then the game crashes when it tries to move the non-existant guards. 5). When you're being chased by the Barghest, if you try to enter the ship the game locks up. Probably happens at the monestary window too.

That's all. Thanks for any hints/nudges anyone can provide. I was thinking of trying to put together a walkthrough, but I'm not smart enough to get 100% in both stats  :P

I have no idea how to get that proof.

I assume you're talking about the urchin. After I steal the apple from his ship he tells me to leave and I never see him again. I've tried giving him cider when he's at the bridge (I heard faeries like it) but it just says "you don't want to spray the urchin with cider" or something like that.

On the 1.1 version of the game, i think the pigeon might be bugged unless the puzzle has changed.

Spoiler: ShowHide
 On my first run thru the pigeon was directly north or my camp and i was just able to walk up and pick up him/her up. Now on my second run thru the pigeon is where the waterfall is and you use the ice orb, but all it does is ruffle its feathers when i try to pick it up and ive used the kindness to animals wish at the well. i have no way to get it.

In my opinion, such a major spoiler probably shouldn't have been posted, because people will read it anyway :P

This is a help thread.  Someone asked a question, and I answered it, but I agree, in retrospect, it was probably a poor judgement call on my part.  Apologies.  I've edited my post to contain ridiculous and misleading information, but I'm afraid there isn't much I can do about the reaction.  >_o

Jocker -
Spoiler: ShowHide
It's random, but whenever I've played I've had a configuration like this in the opening room:
  A   _  B
C           C
Invariably I have been able to solve the puzzle by choosing the item corresponding with door A and one of two items that doesn't correspond with any of the initially visible doors.  (So shouldn't need take more than 2 tries.)  But I don't know if that was just odd luck for me, or if that's an actual pattern.  All I know is it's worked on three consecutive play-throughs.

Your goal is to collect all four gems and return them to the alter in the room that best fits them.

it's possible to escape the castle without using the urn, but I have not been able to do this as in order to take the 2nd path you need to break the window and the urn is the only thing that works for that, as far as I could tell, so if anyone knows how to do it another way...

This is the most complex, side-quests-available, multiple-solutions adventure game I've ever played!  What this game really needs is a comprehensive walkthru--has the author or anyoen else made one yet?  Just going through this thread looking for the solutions I need is like playing another adventure game entirely!

Thanks to those who helped me previously.  I'm stuck again, in Chapter 5 this time.  I'd appreciate some strong hints:

Spoiler: ShowHide
-How do I beat the giant at his strength test?  Based on the fairy tale this comes from, I assume I need to find some cheese somewhere to pretend it's a rock.  But I can't find cheese anywhere.  Or is there some other way to do this?

-How do I save Havgan and route the goblins as the Fairy Queen asked me to do?


I haven't used my wish yet--but I can't get to the well anyway--I do NOT have cider (just empty bottle), but I do have two full pages of inventory (so I won't list every item).  I just succeeded in helping the robed girl but it didn't appear to accomplish anything other than increasing my honor score.

I had to start over due to some bugs, but -

Spoiler: ShowHide
Does anyone know how to escape the castle in the beginning without breaking the vase? I assume it has something to do with finding one of the secret passageways mentioned in the royal library, but I can't figure it out!


also -

Spoiler: ShowHide
I was thinking that, in order to escape without breaking the vase, I may have to acquire the rope on the dummy in Geraint's quarters before the murder takes place. Geraint won't let me take the rope, but I think if I can distract him long enough with the alarum bell I might have a chance to slip in and take it. The problem is, I can't figure out how to get to Geraint's quarters after ringing the bell without Geraint stopping me along the way.


Am I on the right track? Help!

Spoiler: ShowHide
 yes, you need to trick him. Three items, you need. one of them may resemble rock but you can easily smash it and it is easily accesible.. The second one is supposed to be one of the things that a good warrior should posses, and may trick the giant too. The third item is something that flies up.


the second one i donlt know yet. But hope this one will give you some clue.

 the goblins/some hints.
[hide]you need to sneak into the village without causing alarm- you need a disguise. the disguise would be of fair folk's doing- but an object is what youre looking for (think of the changeling) you need to "snow-white" the goblins.

But anyhow, to get the rope (blatant)-
Spoiler: ShowHide
Pull the rope to ring the alarm when there's no guards wandering in the hallway, and then use the hand icon on the balcony in front of the king's bedroom to jump down.  Then you can scoot into the guardroom and grab the rope.

You need the rope, yes.

You also need someone with experience at being a bit underhanded- perhaps you can get this person's cooperation somehow? 

It was pretty easy once it got rolling, but while you can activate everything early, you can't do the break-in until Chapter Six.

What I have worked out for the belt quest so far-
BLATANT spoilers (don't say I didn't warn anyone):

Spoiler: ShowHide
First of all, you need to know where the belt is and have something physical to show people.  You just need to look at the ad for it and then click on it with the hand icon in the Jewelry store- the lady will give you a piece of paper about it.

Then you need to have had your flute stolen- when you go to get it back, stop in the entrance and look up- realizing there is a net there makes it so you won't trip it.  Proceed as usual, getting your stuff back.  When the game tells you that there's someone coming, click the hand icon on the net- this will cause you to spring the trap and catch the thief- I don't know if there are other ways to do it, but I chose to talk at him a bit and get him to promise to stop thieving.

Once the thief is sorta on your side, you can show him the belt advertisement...  I don't know if I should continue, but that's a HUGE start on getting the belt back.

Like i said i thought maybe it was a bug or they changed the puzzle with it cause on my second run thru, items are in different places. The raven is in a new spot, and the single coin you find is in a new spot. I guess i can start over again and see if i run into the same problem.

Don't cut the net down- just look at it when you first get in the ship so it won't fall on you, and use the hand icon on it when you know the thief is coming back.

Well, Finished my second run thru with 95 wisdom, 95 honor, 19/20 cutscenes, and 5/5 side quests. So close to perfect. I wonder what I'm missing, although i have a feeling. I have a pretty good idea on the cutscene, and where i could earn more points. Anyone that has finished, please read this spoiler to speculate on possible points and cutscene i missed.

Spoiler: ShowHide
 At the start, the bard said he might go see the druid, i kept checking there during each chapter and left and entered his area over and over but the bard never showed. Anyone see a cutscene with them? And points... I'm sure there is more than one way to beat the sorcerer. Im guessing you have to beat it without Geriard being turned into a bird. Anyone found any other ways to beat the end. Also the evidence for the assassin i heard there was a crumpled note and pieces of hair. I did not find those which im sure cost me a few points.

oh I see what you mean, yes..

Spoiler: ShowHide
this is one of those things i can;t realy understand. the same thing happened to me once- when I did the quest too late in game. I think there is something that you must do before you can find the grass but right now am not currently sure what.  I did sometime in chapter 4 and worked fine, after i talked to the girl twice. Unless it is randomized and you can find other places similar to the one mentioned in the book?.


sorry i can't be of more help.

you need to have the monk use the top-right book and then he tells you where the grass is. The location changes each time you play, so I don't know if it'll help but I've had it be in the stump one screen before the tool shed, and in the fairy circle.

the hair is on the door to vortigern's room after he is murdered, you need to look at the door and then you can take it. And the note is attached to the pigeon's foot.

I'm right at the beginning and I have a question.  I'm not stuck s such,  But something is confusing me.

Spoiler: ShowHide

I have the sceptor and I went into the chamber that had been prepared for me.  After some looking around and not finding much, I went to exit the room.  Instead of going into the hallway I was tken to a dream sequence where a woman told me to choose two of 7 objects.

But before I had the chance to check the objects out I accidently clicked on the exit, and instead of going back into the chamber I was in some kind of meadow. I wanted to go back into the room with the objects so I restored my savegame and started from back in the chamber...

... BUT... clicking on the door this time brought me back into the hallway instead of the dream sequence again, and nothing I do seems to be able to trigger it off again.

Is there way way of triggering this to happen or does it occur randomly? I really want to check it out before meeting the king for dinner.


Thanks

 There is no one answer here as the riddle changes from one game to another. You should map it out. Note the colours of the doors.

There are only four crystals. You have to match the colored crystals with their corresponding room colors. red room, red crystal. You have to place the crystals back on the colums.

btw, you can trap the barghest and then release him and kill him. Or find the last use it can have. Though, yes, this last one prevents you from completing one major quest.

Okay, a few random responses...

Not being able to pick up the pigeon is a bug. Sorry about that, I'm working on a v1.2 to fix that. Since this only appears to happen in one room, you have a roughly 25% chance of encountering it. NOTE however that you don't actually need the pigeon to complete the game.

Entering the Crystal Cave from your bedroom is also a bug, but a less critical one. Just restore if it happens to you, there isn't all that much to do in your bedroom anyway.

Yes, you can get the vase out of the castle. No, this won't get you any more points.

I'm not sure how many people have realized this, but if you find the Crystal Cave puzzle annoying, there's three alternative ways of passing it.

Likewise, the apprentice in chapter 8 can be passed in three different ways, two of which require some action on your part earlier in the game.

And likewise, if for whatever reason you don't have the flute in chapter 8, there is still an alternative way.

Hello, everyone.  I'm afraid I'm a little stuck and I was hoping one of you could help me.  I have the following problem:

Spoiler: ShowHide
I'm in Chapter 5, and I understand I have to get the comb out of the hole in the ground by pouring water into the hole.  Unfortunately, I gave my bottle of cider to the Pookah in Chapter 1!  A walkthrough I read suggests I look on the sleeping goblin outside the village to recover my bottle, but when I do that I get the message that the goblin holds nothing of interest.  Any way for me to get my bottle back?  Alternatively, any way to get the comb out without using the bottle?


Many thanks,

I tried to look into the stump under the goblin camp and in the hole near the giant with the lantern. Then of course the hero tells me, that it's not lit. So I'm trying to use the matches, but he won't let me do it, because it's broad daylight.
Is there any logic in that?

I started playinjg v1.2 and now I can't seem to find the dark cloth on the window in the room on chapter 1 anymore.
That's because it won't be there until chapter 2.

 The shop that sells matches never opened, but in the Chapter 8 tunnel, Branwyn mysteriously had some. Now I'm stuck at the apprentice. I've already used the snake object from the tower on the monster in the princess' bedroom, and I don't have any holy water. I spoke to the apprentice earlier, and got her the grass, but I can't so far talk my way past her. Am I stuck?
Title: Re: A Tale Of Two Kingdoms
Post by: Radiant on 10 Sep 2007, 17:50
That's not mysterious, that's dead-end prevention :) I'm sure it would have been open earlier in your game.

I'm not sure how you got to the bedroom without dealing with the apprentice first?

Anyway, you're not stuck. Remember you're not alone here.

(By the way, I won the game!) Hmmmm...interesting point you make.

It is my opinion that the cave is more of a novelty in the game then anything else. However, it would be cool, as a easter egg, if you could enter the cave and get captured by the dark, creepy hands of hundreds of fiends...the hero would yell,"Aiiiiii!" ... THE END.

Neat idea, eh?

Now that I have enough money the jeweler tells me she already sold my girdle. Is this the end or is there another way to get it back?

Also, I found some spells in the tower that look pretty useful but how do I use them? Can I get a wand or something from somewhere? Is there anything important in the tower besides the snake and the spells? (if it is I missed it ...)

And I'm stuck looking for the mirror. I tried to freeze the river with the orb (thought I could use the ice as a mirror) but it says it's not the right time.

You won't be able to get the girdle back I'm afraid. Fortunately it's not that important to get a good ending, you just won't get 100% score.

Spells in the tower can't be used - Maeldun is not a magic user after all. Only the snake is important inside the tower, but the books on the Pact give you an idea as to how things work, for the story later on.

Ice isn't actually very reflective :P Water, however, is.

Yes, the stableboy was with her in the room to the right of where she was (where the river is, and where the two goblins originally were).

Actually you don't need to see him in the forest in order for him to be there, but that's one way to find out. You can also go to the city e.g. at the beginning of each chapter and check if he's in his stables.

To avoid that, simply open the game folder in your Windows explorer, and rename saved games until they're all numbered sequentially, starting from zero.

For instance, if they're 000, 001, 003, and 004, then obviously the number 002 is left out, so rename 004 to 002 and you're all set.

The answer was not meant to be easy. The way you go about it is this: write down the names of all named and portrait'ed characters on a piece of paper. Then start crossing out everybody who either has an alibi, or lacks a motive. For instance, Morholt is clearly innocent because he'd never fit under that cloak.

Who was in the castle that night? Are you sure there wasn't anybody else there? Who of those was with somebody else? Who wants the king dead? Do you have any objects that provide clues, and if so, who do they belong to?

If done properly, you'll end up with one name.

If you want to get rid of the goblins in the small village, you need a disguise. Do you have the comb already in your inventory? You find it in the screen south of the giants camp. Use it on the lake that is a bit north of the village

He's not trying to get into the village, but rather fight with the leader at the end.

Super vague hint

You're good at swordfighting, but not that good. You're gonna need something to help.


Push in the right direction

The 'lesser' way to do can be found in a book in the monastery. The better way is with Fairy magic.


Blatant answer
Spoiler: ShowHide
If the Dark Sidhe has granted you a boon, you'll have the onyx stone to use on the goblin leader. Otherwise, fill your cloth bag with sand and throw that at the leader.

Don't spend too long in the hallway. (The text that shows up immediately after you leave the room directs you to where to go)

Please can someone just tell me who the assassin is? No hints just the answer?

I'm sure someone has already realized this, but I found out that
Spoiler: ShowHide
if you never picked up the matches, whether because you completely forgot, or if like me by the time you got to it you couldn't get them because either a)the jeweler was not in her shop to kick you out so the only way out is the water which ruins the matches, or b)the shop was closed; when you get to the cave sequence, Taliesin actually hands Branwyn a pack of matches saying you'll probably need illumination. Not sure about the lantern as I did pick that up.

Well, yes. That way there is no dead end for the casual players, and still a puzzle for the die hards.

I'm really stuck in Chapter 4
Spoiler: ShowHide
I've gotten the flute and talked to the apprentice about the problem she is having, however Geraint keeps showing up in the town square. I need to go get my sword from the blacksmith but he recognizes me right away. How do I get past him?

The appearance of the NPC in the town square is random. If you are trying to get past the town square from the docks, just leave the town and come back after a while. Or you can simply try to enter-leave the town square a few times until Geraint is gone (I don't think he spots you immediately after you enter the town square).

In chapter 5, where is the boat?

Somewhere I read that there's a boat that can be used to help the kid in the fairy kingdom.

The shipwreck by the beach in the human realm.

The shipwreck by the beach in the human realm.

If you're talking about the one the rogue character lives in then I already know about that one. Or is there also another beach with a shipwreck? From what I recall there was a boat in the town docks in the previous chapters but for chapter 5 I don't see it there anymore. Can it be somewhere else and If so Is this the one I am supposed to find for the changeling kid?

Yep, that's the one.

The boat in the town docks is just for decoration only

Spoiler: ShowHide
You may have noticed something a little odd about the rogue. Just need to confirm that he's the changeling's other half / the fae that the changeling was switched with.

Thanks for that info! Though now I'm rather stuck on what to do next.
Spoiler: ShowHide
I've tried using the stone with the hole it in on the rogue as well as the changeling's comb and the flute doesn't seem to do anything either. I no longer have the iron charm either so I can't use that on him

I think you can

go back to the Fae realm and talk to the changeling to tell him you've found his swapped twin?

Spoiler: ShowHide
unfortunately when I talk to the changeling the only option is "Could you do something for me?" As of yet I have no idea how to show the rogue he's related to the changeling. Also is it possible to do this sidequest after chapter 5 or is it blocked after access to the fairy realm is no longer available?

Once the faerie realm is no longer accessible, it means you can't go back to talk to Blossom anymore. So the quest is no longer solvable. I assume you've already befriended the rogue? Other than that, I can't recall if there was anything else you needed to do; it has been several years since I played the game.

What all is there to do in the sorcerer's tower?
Spoiler: ShowHide
You can get the snake figure and smash the orb, but is there anything else? The cabinet and wardrobe look interesting, but I can't get either of them to open.

Regarding Blossom,
Spoiler: ShowHide
Use the cold iron charm on Ruadh to prove he's faerie-kin, then you can go tell Blossom about that.


Regarding the sorcerer's tower?
Spoiler: ShowHide
There's also the brain-in-a-jar laying outside; but otherwise that's it. Smashing the crystal ball stops Taranis from harassing you with long-distance curses.

And I also know that i have to get the shield from smith, but he never leaves, so i just can't get it, do i have to start with earlier chapter? cuz i already have tried a hundred times to re-enter the city, but the smith doesn't want to leave his place:(
