Name affected items

In some versions of the game, the equipment that you find at the crash site magical chest and crate by the blimp wreckage is directly related to your character's name. Certain names will consistently make certain items appear throughout the game at specific locations. To try this, enter a character name and go to the nearest receptacle at the crash site. Check its contents, then quit the game and makea new character with the same name and try it again. The equipment will be the same. After that, try a different name and note that the equipment has changed. Try different names until you get the desired starting equipment.

Dark Helm

The magical aptitude bonus and alignment penalties of the Dark Helm are cumulative, and will thus remain even after removing the helm. This is not so good if you want a temporary adjustment, but great if you are trying to either maximize your magical aptitude or bottom out your alignment.

Duplicate NPCs glitch

Find an NPC that does not move and stand in the same location day and night. You can clone them and their equipment. You first need to get an item that does damage over time. Go near the NPC and drop the damage over time item near the him or her. Wait for them to walk over, pick it up, and equip it. They will start taking damage. Once they die, loot their items. Resurect the NPC. Walk a few screens away and advance time by one day. Return to the NPC and they should be cloned. Note: You must drop the item directly beside most NPCs or they will walk back to their starting location. Also note that some NPCs will not equip certain items and armor is size dependant.

Race recommendations

If you want a thief, then select a half-ogre feral child. All you need if a Potion Of Intelligence. A good maker of things is a Half-Orc idiot savant. Note: You cannote to do some quests as you will not have the intelligence, or be too sickly. Never choose an elf or a dwarf as they are not the best for most things. For example, an elf has low Constitution and a wizard requires lots of Constitution.

Alternate battle defeating Gang

After you defeat the Gang before the bridge of Shrowded Hills, you normally must go down across the bridge and fight a Gnome who asks your character for the ring on Preston (the man at the start of the game that dies in front of you). The Gnome is across from Rizetes Store and on the way to Doc Robets. When you speak to him, if you kill him he will not show up on the end of the bridge. Instead, you fight a villager that has a sword and the hexagon-shaped necklace that enemies have.

Duplicate items glitch

Note: To do this you must go to anything that can hold items (a rubbish bin, etc.). This example will use gold. Use the "Take All" button to empty the bin out, then get the gold and send more than half of it to the bin. For instance, if you have 50 gold, send at least 26 gold pieces or it will not duplicate. Once it is in the bin there should be 26 pieces in the bin, and 24 in your inventory. Aftewards, drag the gold from your inventory to the bin, but do not send it over completely. Make sure that the window where you can choose how much gold you want to put in the bin is up and that the number reads "0". While that window is up, click the "Take All" button and take all the gold from the bin. Your gold count will go back up to "50" in the number box to the side of the inventory. Then, select the "Choose All" button on the gold window. If done correctly, the number should read "24". Send the gold over to the bin and the number should now read "74" instead of "50". The item will not appear in your inventory until you close the bin and re-open the bin or go to your inventory. You can do this as many times as desired. The items that this trick works with are Gold, Bullets, Fuel, Batteries, and Arrows.

Easy money hints

  • In Tarant, while on the second quest that Madam Lil gives you, say that Madam Lil sent you when speaking to Mr. Langley. After that, select either response (other than bye), then the one that begins with "", then say that you do not trust him, and finally choose "Okay but I'll be back for the rest". After you are done, repeat this as many times as needed for free money.

  • Wait outside the wise woman's location in either Ashbury or Shrouded Hills until they have a bige sum of money. Kill them and take the money. Make sure to leave one alive so you have someone that can identify your items.

  • Become a good pickpocket, then steal the key from Rizzette after dark. Note: Sneak into his room with him. Sell Rizzette either the camera or a clock part, then go into his room and steal the item back. Repeat this as many times as desired. After that, go to the Inn and ask the Innkeeper for a week's stay. Continue to sell Rizzette the item, steal it back, and sleep in the Inn for the night. Rizzette will have a new supply of money every day.

  • Learn how to pick locks to never worry about money. You can go to most shops (for example, Shrouded Hills) then pick the locks. Note: A set of lockpicks or the Auto Skeleton Key will make a big difference. Enter their back rooms and pick the lock on the chest, barrel, or crate. All of the items they have for sale are inside those containers. Find the items that sell well. Sell the shop's own items back to them until they are broke. They will get a new supply of money each day. Save the game next to the door before you pick it, in case the lock jams or they attack. Note: this trick does not work in all shops.

  • When you create a character, distribute a few skill points into lockpicking and buy some lockpicks. When you play through the first area and reach Shrouded Hills, find the locations of the stores. Sleep until evening, then sleep a few more hours until everyone else is asleep. Enter the stores and pick the locks to enter. Be careful not to let the guards see you doing this. You can enter from windows, in order to avoid guards. In each store, there should be a locked container. Pick it to see the store's contents. You can take all the expensive items, and then sell them back to the store. Most times everything is restocked after a day, or when you leave the town and return.

  • Enter the Dark Mage shop in Tarant at night and rest until morning. Go inside and position yourself directly beside the Dark Mage's shop chest. Rest until evening, then rest for two more hours. Either cast the spell "Disintegrate" on the Baleful Hound, or use a Scroll of Disintegrate. Melee combat will draw the shop owner's attention. Whenthe hound is dead, make sure you are still beside the Dark Mage's chest, against the wall. Use "Unlock Cantrip" or lockpick the chest. To get the Light Mage's chest open, use "Unlock Cantrip" from the same location while he is asleep. The Light Mage usually will not notice since you are too far away. When needed, restock the chests by going outside the shop and advancing time by a day. It may be a smart idea to unlock the doors leading in to the back area. Each day will yield about 5,000 gold and a number of various scrolls which allows you access to high powered spells very early, as well as various magical items.

Easy items hint

After receiving the dynamite at the start of the game in the cave to the north of the crash site and reach Shrouded Hills, go to the blacksmith's shop. Wait until he goes to sleep, then follow him into his room and make sure Nijel stays outside near the anvil. Save the game. Pick pocket the room key from the blacksmith. If you fail, reload the game. You can do this with 0 Pickpocketing skill because he is asleep. After that, place the dynamite near his bed and run out the door near the anvil. When it explodes killing him and breaking open the barrel of his wares, take anything needed such as armor, weapons, or bullets, and the blacksmith's hammer. Note: Make sure to rest in the blacksmith's room for 24 hours or the guards will kill you.

Powerful mage

To become a very powerful mage early in the game, start by pickpocketing Rizzei and acquiring at least 10,000 gold. Then, wait by the wise woman until you get a Dark Helm, Arcane Robes, and an Arcane Staff. Note: Only the Dark Helm is required for this trick, and it will give you a 100% evil alignment. Then, place the Dark Helm on and off until your Magical Alignment is 100, then leave it on. All magical items, armor, and spells will now be at maximum, and will give you the highest attack defense and damage possible for the item. Therefore, the Arcane Robes (which provide more protection than any other arcane armor) and the Arcane Staff (which has 80 free mana) are used. After this, you may kill her and take her money (which should total over 50,000 gold). Nowwait by another wise woman until you get two Arcane Rings, Enchanted War Boots, an Arcane Helmet, Arcane Gauntlets and if desired, an Arcane Great Sword and Arcane Shield. You can do all of this before finding out about the telegram and should total about 100 defense and a 35 attack if you put a point into melee.

Easy wins hint

Harm is a good spell at higher levels since you can keep casting it on an enemy. After three or four hits, hard opponents will crumble, all at a cost of 20 mana. Combined with a high dexterity, you can barrage opponents and quickly turn the tide of any battle.

Stillwater Giant

The Stillwater Giant is real, unlike what's commonly believed. He can be found as a random encounter in the area around Stillwater. He first appears as as a blue bunny, but turns into the Stillwater Giant if you attack him. Be forewarned -- he is good aligned and you will shift towards evil if you kill him.
