Scylla Temple & Others (spoilers)



  • From previous posts, I gather that one of the 742-Will to Union rings is in the temple. Where is it? I searched the entire temple (I think) and couldn't find it. I found the secret passage in the fountain room and retrieved the glowing sword. In all, I found three portions of the cavern. Upper part with two chests, middle portion and lower. The lower two portions boarder a lake. I searched all of the skeletons. Found a pouch with some oboloi but nothing else. What am I missing? Where are the chambers for the inner brotherhood that Tavara's note refers to? Also, are there two NW strongholds, or just the disappearing one plus the temple? I have only located the temple and Charax's house.

    Also, what do I need to do to convince Prusa to give me that sapphire book? I have the other nine and I really want into that final hall in Pynx. I've been working on her for three days now, and she's about to become lightning bolt bait. It shouldn't be this hard.

    Thanks.



  • Here is where the ring is:

    Go into the Gem Dealers house at night. Search the room. I think it's in his desk.



  • Check out http://ucf.edu/~bd12842/mSapp.htm for information on all of the Sapphire books.



  • The ring you're looking for isn't found in the temple, it's found in a strong hold NE of Pnyx. It's found near the disappearing one. I know the gem dealer has one, but I was under the impression that one wouldn't work. Does it?

    As for Prusa, I don't know how to help but just to say that persistance pays off. I visited her three times before I got the book, and each time I saw her I would click on her about thirty times. She's got lots to say...it's possible that she needs to say EVERYTHING before she gives you the book.



  • What does this ring do? I cured Alaric without knowing about them.



  • Thanks. I found both 742-Will to Union rings. The one with the diamond is found in the dungeon of the northernmost stronghold on the western side of the mountain range. It allows you to enter the other stronghold located slightly SE of it. The plain 742 ring that I swiped in Kosha doesn't seem to do anything at all. And you can't use them on each other. My whole problem was that I didn't realize that the strongholds were so far east. There not even remotely close to the temple or Charax's house. They were located in the only black spaces I still had on the map.

    As for Prusa, I'll keep trying to get that %#$^$# book. Just for the heck of it, I saved the game and blasted her with a lightning bolt. Pretty wimpy magess. Went down with one bolt. Unfortunately, the book was not on her smoldering corpse and Hector was none too pleased with my lack of manners. So, I guess I'll keep talking to her.



  • "Oh yes. I'm the most powerful maggess in the land and..."

    ZAAAAAAAPPPPPP!

  • I smell bacon! Yummmm! ;)



  • I've heard you need all the mystical stuff before she will give you the book. I've got the helmet and had the spear but lost it in battle (I don't know why). Is there a way to get it back? Are there other mistical things I should know about?



  • I'm reasonably certain that you have to have all the pieces of the crolna to get the book from Prusa.



  • Actually, when I got the book..I only had three pieces.



  • I have all ten books, only two pieces of the Crolna, and no mystical weapons or anything like that. I think getting the book from Prusa is either a matter of how many times you've visited/talked to her, or it may be a function of where people are standing when you talk to her. It may also help if she stands still; I noticed that she seems to always be moving around, but when I got the book from her she had stood still for a couple turns before I talked to her. In general, I think the best advice is "Have patience". Good luck.



  • Yep! I think you're correct. If at first you don't succeed...try and try and try and try and TRY again! Persistance is what works. And, as you pointed out in another folder, you need to have version 1.03. It was apparently impossible in earlier versions.

    Golly...when do I get to be a REAL member?! :) I wonder...why there's a difference...am I on some sort of trial period here? Is there a vote? :) Don't respond. I'm just whining. It'll pass.



  • Hey Zelda, from one Junior Member to another :), here's the answer to your question: I read on some thread on one of the other web boards that the secret to being "upgraded" to a Member is in the number of posts you've done. Apparently the magic number is twenty.



  • Regarding wrsoland's question about losing the Mystic Spear:
    If you throw the spear at someone and kill them, the spear "disappears" and is now "carried" by the corpse/carcass or whatever. (I'm not sure what exactly happens with polyps and such that disappear - someone should check this.) Look on the corpse and you should see the spear. If you leave the area and come back, the spear might be lying on the ground where you left it, or it might not. One thing that seems to always cause permanent loss, though, is with wild animals like unicorns and titans. If you kill one by throwing the spear at it, then destroy the carcass into meat (you can do this bare-handed even - talk about strength! :-> ) the spear will disappear forever, lost with the destruction of the carcass. Annoying, no?
