Main Quests

Deliver the Encrypted Scroll

This is the very first quest assigned to you as part of the game's intro. You are entrusted with an encrypted scroll to deliver to the High Priest Petrus at the city of Attnam. Unfortunately for you, New Attnam is surrounded by water and Attnam's ships are trapped in winter's ice, so your only option is to travel by foot through the Underwater Tunnel which are rife with monsters and hostile plant life.

Once you have successfully fought your way through the tunnel and delivered the scroll to Petrus, you will immediately be sent on the Freedom Quest and the location of the Gloomy Caves will be revealed on the world map. Alternately, you can give the encrypted scroll to the imprisoned necromancer in the Cellar, thus accessing the Tomb of Xinroch line of quests instead.

Chaos Ending

At any point in the game you can decide to instead take a third option and rebel against Petrus and the rest of the Attnamese Empire.

Although extremely difficult - especially if you haven't prepared yourself adequately - if you manage to exterminate the entirety of Attnam including Petrus, you can take his Left Nut of Petrus and leave town, where you will be greeted and taken in by Mortifer as his Champion of Chaos.

Slaying Petrus and leaving town with his left nut grants you a 3x multiplier to your score.

Gloomy Caves

Freedom from Slavery Quest

Having read the encrypted scroll, you discover that Richel Decos has sold you into slavery under Petrus in an attempt to avoid paying Attnam more taxes. Unfortunately for him, Petrus and Sir Haedlac Galladon VII are already wise to his tricks, due to reports he had been buying medium sized castles with the immense amounts of treasure seized from the natives of Tweraif. Petrus would like to investigate, but cannot do so until spring when the ice will thaw and Attnamese ships will be able to reach the island of Tweraif.

In any case, Petrus decides he must find something for you to do in the meantime. As it turns out, an evil dark frog by the name of Elpuri has taken up residence in an abandoned mine as of late, and has been harassing Attnam and building an army. Additionally, the Shirt of the Golden Eagle - the best armor in existence - has been stolen from the Cathedral. Fortunately Elpuri cannot wear it due to his immense size, but any who can would be nigh immortal, Petrus says.

Due to your experience fighting underground, Petrus decides to send you after Elpuri and will reward you with your freedom should you present him with his head. Should you also recover the Shirt of the Golden Eagle, he will raise you to Knighthood.

Successfully diving into the Gloomy Cave, defeating Elpuri and returning to Petrus with his head will give you the freedom ending and a 2x multiplier to your total score.

Knighthood Quest

You may recall Petrus mentioned someone stole the Shirt of the Golden Eagle, and that he would grant you a knighthood for its safe return. Once you have defeated Elpuri, you may notice a strange portal in his lair. Trying to enter it prompts you with a warning, saying that you feel entering it would be extremely dangerous and that you would have no way back.

Should you brave the portal, you will be deposited to an even deeper level of the Gloomy Cave, far more dangerous than those above. If you can successfully fight your way through to its deepest point and retrieve the Shirt of the Golden Eagle from its guardian, you will be able to take a portal back up to the higher levels of the cave. You may then return to Attnam and present the shirt to Petrus for your knighthood... or decided to challenge Petrus for the title of High Priest.

Returning the Shirt of the Golden Eagle to Petrus nets you the knighthood ending and a 4x multiplier to your score.

Becoming the High Priest

The position of High Priest of the Great Frog is one taken by force. Every High Priest has ascended to his position by slaying the previous High Priest and taking his place. If you wish to become the High Priest of the Great Frog, your ascension to the throne will be no different.

Once you have retrieved the Shirt of the Golden Eagle and returned to Attnam, Petrus will ask you to return it to him. Should you give it to him, you'll gain knighthood and the game will end immediately. If however you decide to be greedy or vengeful you can instead refuse to give him the shirt and challenge him for the position of High Priest. Petrus will turn bright red and engage you in mortal combat - however this will not be an honest duel! Literally everyone in Attnam will rush to the aid of their High Priest and aid in combat in whatever way they can.

Should you manage to defeat Petrus, everyone still left alive will accept his defeat and go back to their normal activities. In order to secure your ending, all you must do is become the Champion of Valpurus (by increasing your relationship with him to 1000), take up the Left Nut of Petrus, equip the Shirt of the Golden Eagle and sit on Petrus' throne.

Once you have been declared the new High Priest of the Great Frog, the game ends and you net a 5x multiplier to your score.

Tomb of Xinroch

This quest can only be started AFTER delivering the encrypted scroll to Petrus but BEFORE talking to him again to get the quest for killing Elpuri.

Shadow Veil Retrieval

If you talk to the imprisoned necromancer in the Cellar of the Cathedral of Attnam, he reveals to you the location of the legendary Tomb of Xinroch, the final resting place of the greatest dark knight who ever lived, whose life story you can read here. You will be sent on a quest to find the fabled shadow veil, an artifact cloak capable of enabling living creatures to pass through walls yust like ghosts do. The imprisoned necromancer plans to use this cloak to escape from his prison.

Should you delve into the Tomb of Xinroch, find the shadow veil and then return with it to the necromancer, he will brand you with a brand of undeath that will allow you to continue deeper into the Tomb, where even more danger awaits. Even if you die afterwards, though, you will gain a 2x multiplier to your score for delivering the shadow veil.

Becoming the Master Dark Knight

Having killed the resurrected Xinroch the elder grand master dark knight deep within his own Tomb, you can take his lost ruby flaming sword and kneel (use sit command) on an altar of Infuscor. As you have bested the greatest dark knight that ever lived, she will knight you and promote you to Master Dark Knight of the Unholy Order of Infuscor, thus ending the game and earning you a 4x multiplier to your score.


This quest can only be started AFTER delivering the encrypted scroll to Petrus but BEFORE talking to him again to get the quest for killing Elpuri.

Sir Lancelyn seeks help from Attnam in Petrus' court for his home kingdom of Aslona. The Seges-worshipping seaside kingdom is facing numerous crises and looming civil war after the mysterious death of King Othyr. Speaking to Sir Lancelyn and accepting his task will begin the quest.

Two locations will be revealed on the world map: the Rebel Camp led by Harvan Black-cloak, and the Castle of Aslona itself, under the de facto rule of His Excellency Efra Peredivall, Lord Regent of Aslona. Both leaders suspect the other of murdering the king. Speaking to the Lord Regent in Aslona will lead to three tasks to aid Aslona, though the player may choose to support the rebellion by bringing the results of these tasks to the rebels.

As these quests require visting various locations on the worldmap which may or may not be confined to a single continent, accepting the Aslona questline from Sir Lancelyn in Attnam grants the player access to his ship, allowing movement across ocean squares even without levitation or swimming, activated by moving into an ocean square and choosing to "board ship y/n?". This does not grant movement across water within cities or dungeons, only the worldmap ocean. The ship grants ocean movement not only to the player, but his entire team allowing (relatively) easy movement of entire armies to other islands and continents.

Kidnapped Prince

Lord Mittrars, the field marshal of Aslona, explains that the king's son and heir was away from the kingdom at the time of King Othyr's death. The prince was recalled to the castle but has been captured by goblins, and the player is asked to rescue him from the Goblin Fortress.

Fresh Water Supplies

This quest is given by Senex, the priest of Seges found in the Castle's temple. The objective is to retrieve a weeping obsidian shard from the bottom of the Fungal Cave.

The Nuke

Myrddin Wyllt will give you a quest to find a device from "the long lost empire of Otoul'iv Ik-Omit". It is at the lowest level of the Pyramid.

Regalia of Aslona

Once you have fulfilled the three previous quests for one side of the civil war, you will be asked to retrieve an ancient sword from the leader of the opposition. Lord Regent holds E-numa sa-am, while Harvan Black-cloak has Asamarum.

You can actually bring the sword from one leader to the other at any time and win the game, but doing so before finishing the three previous quests will only net you a 2x multiplier to your score, while doing so with all three quests fulfilled will end the game with a 4x multiplier to your score.

You can also acquire both swords and bring them to Petrus, which ends the game and earns you a 3x multiplier to your score. This option is useful to consider if you somehow managed to make both sides of the civil war hostile to you.

Freedom for Tweraif


At any point in the game you can decide to liberate New Attnam from the clutches of the imperialists. Simply attack Richel Decos or his guards to begin this quest. Take particular care to attack only Richel Decos, his rookie guards, the shopkeeper, the banana grower encourager and the tourists - attacking anyone else will turn the natives hostile.

If you manage to overcome Richel Decos and his cohorts, New Attnam will be freed and all the natives will have a change in dialogue. However, you will earn the ire of Huang Ming Pong as the natives will stop bringing him bananas and he will refuse to agree to a sumo match (see below). If you wish to start the revolution and still gain the belt of levitation, make sure you beat Huang Ming Pong in sumo wrestling before you take on Richel Decos.

Magical Mango Sapling

Once you have freed Tweraif, you will need to make sure that it remains free and Attnam won't bring an army upon you once Spring arrives. Talk to Kaethos for explanation of the quest, then go to the Underwater Tunnel level 2 and find the buried staircase leading down to the Crystal Cave. Talk to Terra, the older priestess of Silva, and she will send you even deeper, to the lair of Lobh-Se.

Once you defeat Lobh-Se, she will drop a magical mango seedling she devoured. Take the seedling and bring it back to New Attnam, then plant it (drop it) at the banana landing spot (where the banana growers would leave bananas for the ostriches to pick up). The seedling will take root and protect Tweraif from invasion.

Ensuring the freedom for Tweraif will end the game and earn you a 2x multiplier to your score.

Vice-Roy of New Attnam

As an alternative victory once you have freed Tweraif, you can go to Attnam and talk to Thesaurius the hoardmaster. He sits behind his desk in the treasury, located in the right wing of the Cathedral. If you have enough gold on you, you can bribe him to gain the (forcefully vacated) position of vice-roy of New Attnam.

Becoming the new (and hopefully better) ruler of Tweraif will end the game and earn you a 2x multiplier to your score.

Side Quests

Spider Quest

Remember the child tourist in New Attnam who asked you to bring him a pet spider? Do it and you will receive a reward based on how strong a spider you can capture for him.

Sumo Champion Quest

If you decide to pay a visit to New Attnam at some point on your journey you may come across Huang Ming Pong the sumo wrestler in his hut. If you are feeling confident in your unarmed combat abilities you can challenge him to a sumo match (which as it turns out is actually more like an unarmed fight to the death) while the tourists and Richel Decos watch on.

The rules are simple - you and Huang fight each other in a small arena using mirror images. You are completely stripped of all items and equipment, meaning your victory can only be secured via your statistics and unarmed combat skill. Fighting as a mirror image, however, has the advantage that you will not die when "killed" during the match and can try again, after you train some more.

If you manage to defeat Huang in mortal combat, you will be rewarded with the belt of levitation and a shirt with a decos banana co. advert which you can use to gain some gold based on the amount of time you've spent wearing it. Huang will also teach you some martial arts, giving a boost to your unarmed combat skill.

With the addition of Mondedr and Kharaz-arad come new side quests for the player to complete.

Retrieve the Ring of Thieves

Talk to Raven in Mondedr to receive a quest of slaying Vulkan-Loki, who stole the ring of thieves, and returning the ring back to Raven. As a reward, you will be given a powerful whip.

Slay Genefourx Vesana

If one were to explore the dungeon beneath the pond in Kharaz-arad one would find that it eventually leads to a sprawling floor filled with carnivorous plant life far stronger than any you'd see in the Underwater Tunnels. Sat in the center of a great many carnivorous plants and surrounded by a pool of poison is Genefourx Vesana the grandmother carnivorous mutant plant.

Although not an explicit quest in and of itself, slaying Genefourx Vesana will grant you access to the Tranquil Pond with a fountain in the center, as well as some random items. It is suspected that this entire dungeon was part of an unfinished quest, perhaps started by talking with Denim the vault keeper.


CLIVAN presents several new quests and side quests, including a brand new ending.

Ommel Blood Quest

Within the Deep Forest you may come across the Priestess of Cleptia. Should you speak to her, she will present you with a quest - she needs you to take a klein bottle full of ommel blood and curdle it with an Enner Beast's roar. The only enner beast you know of is one found within the Gloomy Cave. Simply take the klein bottle to the Gloomy Cave and allow the bottle to take damage from the enner beast's roar in order to curdle the blood inside.

Once you have curdled the blood, return the klein bottle to the priestess to receive your reward - a map to the Tomb of Xinroch. Unfortunately, the Tomb is an unfinished area in the current version of the game.

Free the Prisoners

A band of roving forest men at the beginning of the Deep Forest will direct you to their leader, who will in turn tell you about a goblin fortress at the very end of the Deep Forest, guarding a prison full of innocent people. Saving these prisoners will allow you to continue with the Freedom for Tweraif ending.

Freedom for Tweraif

If you have completed the Revolution side quest, CLIVAN allows you to secure an ending for yourself by completing this quest.

During your travels in CLIVAN you may have come across the Constitution of Independant Tweraif. By following its instructions, you can liberate New Attnam for good and end the game victorious. Simply locate the Seedling of a Holy Mango Tree within the Deep Forest and plant it upon the banana drop area in New Attnam.

Having done so you will be proclaimed Liberator of Tweraif and the game will end with no multiplier applied to your score.
