In the room with the Gate Keeper, go east then follow the screens going several more screens east then a few north. In the last room north there is a blue sparkle. Walk into the sparkle and the floor to the right will fall away. Drop down into the hole then follow the screens.

Ok, I have almost done that, but there is a locked door blocking my way, nothing seems to open it, and the *wall of illusion* takes me back to another spot altogeather. What to do..??

Are you talking about the locked door in the screen with the slayer and slimers? I played the game having accepted the thief training (heh heh) so I was able to pick the lock.

I'm not sure how to unlock that door since I've only played the game once, as a thief. Do none of the guards' keys open it?

What's the "Wall of Illusion"? I don't recall encountering that - did I miss something?

The gate to the end of the mines can be opened either with a bomb or theif skills.

I can get to the dragon under the waterfall, but I don't see any skull nor does the dragon say anything about it. What do I have to do to get the Skull of Kritos so I can summon Charon? (I did it without the skull and got killed.) I've been trying for ages now and nothing seems to change.

There is a dragon statue in the mine. Talking to him can send you on the search for the skull from the dragon.(Then he sells it to you) If charon already comes when you don't have the skull, that is a bug. (press "I" and message me with the number Dink says. ) Does Charon kill you??. Remember greek mythology?

Martridge should be telling you to go north of town to fight the Bringer of Light. The bridge is fixed.

I'm writing a hint guide and walkthrough. The walkthrough isn't ready. I'll probably release that along with a patch. But the hint guide is ready enough to email to anyone who wants it. Just say so here or in Personal Message center.

I have fought the guards and martridge has now asked me to find the sceptre. I have found the waterfall and met the dragon, but, he only says something about fate and stuff. Have I missed something? I have a key with me, and I have read that there is something in the underground mines, but, I do not know what it is. Pls help me, I am completely lost.

Return to the underground mines. There is a *secret* to be found, which will lead you into a different portion of the mines. There you will talk to a Stone Dragon, who will give you some clues.

Martridge said" The old books say they were digging in the south-west corner of the mine when they encountered trouble.".

Wow,You must have searched for this old thread. The path from the mine to the river starts at the bottom/left, runs to the right then up to a hole and on to the river.
I think the gate you mean is on the way there.
There is a nice walkthrough in the 'Dink Solutions' page (link on left bar <- ), but finding your own way is best.
