(MR)  Core Quest:  Maze's Request
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
So, Maze wants a word with you.  Go to the Heroes' Guild where you will
find him on the top floor of his tower.

Talk to him and this quest is complete.



(FA)  Core Quest:  Find the Archaeologist 1
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
Maze gives you the quest card himself, so when ever you are ready, use a
Cullis Gate or your own quick warp to go to the Witchwood Cullis Gate.

As soon as you arive in the Witchwood Cullis Gate area, the quest will
start.

Go straight, hack your way through the vines and keep going, you will
come to a corner... where you will meet your first Rock Troll.  Fight
them the same way you do an Earth Troll, these guys just have way more
health, defence and attack power.  This first one will drop two gems.
All the rest afterwards will drop one gem or a potion.

Move on through the area to the top right corner of the mini-map, this
will take you to the Witchwood Stones.

Nearly right away on your right you will find a Demon Door, talk to him.


	(DD07)  Demon Door #7  -  Witchwood Stones
	""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
In the Witchwood Stones area, the demon doors is on the right hand side
when you enter the area, this is a quest required door.

	"I only open to those who know my name.  If you know it, find and
	 hit the magic stones to spell it out."
	"Only one person knows my name, but I doubt you'll find him.
	 Even at the Temple of Avo."

Hmmmm I wonder what we have to do?  Lest try the Temple of Avo.

Continue on the path until you hit the split in the road, the left path
takes you to the stones you need to spell the doors name, it will also
eventually get you to the Temple of Avo, but the right path is a shorter
route to the Temple of Avo.

Right away there is a split in the road, go right and you will quickly
be at the Temple of Avo.  Talk to the guy wandering around there who is
highlighted green and shows up on your mini-map (not the mercinary).

He will ask you straight up if you want to know the name of the Demon
Door.  But the bastard wants an item, a shiny, expensive item.  He
wants a bloody Ruby that jerk.
	GOOD - give it to him and walk away.
	EVIL - give it to him, kill him and take your Ruby back.

Now you know the Demon Door's name, so lets head back to the Witchwood
Stones area.  Go down the right hand path to the stones.  Hit them in
order to spell "HITS" you can examine the stones with the "A" button to
see what leter each stone represents.

If you spell "S" "H" "I" "T" the game will say it and the first time it
will also summon two Balverines.

You'll be brought automatically to the Demon Door, go on in and the
quest will be complete.



Witchwood Cavern  -  Demon Door #7
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
This is inside Demon Door #7, because it was a quest one... I decided 
that the reward for it was the Archaeologist and that the items inside
are a bonus.  Anyway, in here there is a cart you can enter to find a
chest, a couple barrels another chest and some books and a bookshelf.

	Inside the barrels you will find:
	  1 x Ruby
	  1 x Sapphire
	  1 x Red Meat
	Inside the cart you will find in the chest:
	  1 x Resurrection Phial
	Inside the chest you will find:

	On the ground by the bookshelf you will find:
	  1 x The Sock Method

Witchwood Cullis Gate
"""""""""""""""""""""
From the Cullis Gate portal, on the right hand side there are some vines,
chop em down to reveal a chest.

	Inside the chest you will find:
	  1 x Resurrection Phial

Keep following the main path and you will come across a skeleton against
a fence beside a barrel, there are some items on the ground there too.

	Inside the barrel you will find:
	  1 x The Guild of Zeroes
	On the ground you will find:
	  1 x Ages of Will Potion
	  1 x Will Potion



(GT)  (EVIL)  Side Quest:  Gaurd Trap
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
Ok, enter Witchwood Stones and if you're EVIL, you will meet a couple
bandits, talk to them then move past them.  Some guy will come up to you
and if you talk to him he asks you to help beat up some rich traders.

Follow him, he will take you to the stones... where you will be ambushed
by like 6 guards.
	GOOD - let the guy who tricked you live
	EVIL - kill the bastard who tricked you

Either way you have to fight the guards, the ones in red are stronger
than the normal ones.

	Beating this quest earns you:
	  1 x Resurrection Phial (from the guy who tricked you)



(BT)  (GOOD)  Side Quest:  Bandit Trap
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
Ok, enter Witchwood Stones and if you're GOOD, you will meet a couple
guards, talk to them then move past them.  Some guy will come up to you
and if you talk to him he asks you to help his poor wife.

Follow him, he will take you to the stones... where you will be ambushed
by like 6 bandits.
	GOOD - let the guy who tricked you live
	EVIL - kill the bastard who tricked you

Either way you have to fight the bandits.

	Beating this quest earns you:
	  1 x Resurrection Phial (from the guy who tricked you)



Witchwood Stones
""""""""""""""""
At the split in the road are some vines, chop em down to reveal a chest.

	Inside the chest you will find:
	  1 x Obsidian Greathammer

On the left by some rubble, past the demon door are a couple of barrels.

	Inside the barrels you will find:
	  1 x Red Meat
	  1 x Apple Pie

Take the left path past the stones and you will come across a chest on
your left.

	Inside the chest you will find:
	  1 x Chainmail Gauntlets



(TA)  Side Quest:  The Temple of Avo
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
If you take the right hand path and go to the actual Temple of Avo, you
can find a chest on the right hand side of the entrance.

	Inside the Chest you will find:
	  1 x Resurrection Phial

If you go inside the Temple of Avo, you can talk to the two priests who
tell you to give them money... I mean, give money in the name of god....
Anyway, just like the Chapel of Skorm, there are three rewards, each
requires a lot of gold, and is even more expensive if you are good.

  Prize 1:  Gift of youth (average of 8 years taken off your age)
  Prize 2:  The Sentinus
  Prize 3:  Paladin Title

The Temple of Avo is a lot easier to figure out than the Chapel of Skorm.
You just donate money and you get rewards.

NOTE:  I highly recommend saving before donating gold, that way if you
	don't get the reward you want or any reward at all, you can just
	load and come back with more money.

If you're EVIL, donate around 33,000 - 35,000 gold and you should get
the The Sentinus.  If you didn't get The Sentinus, reload and add 5000
gold to the amount you previously donated, repeat until you get it in one
donation.  Then donate 5000 gold and you should get the gift of youth.
Then finally donate 1000 gold at a time until you get the Paladin title.
On average, a level 4 EVIL character (half way EVIL) will need 47,000
gold to get this reward.

If you're GOOD, donate around 48,000 - 50,000 gold and you should get
the Sentinus.  If you didn't get the Sentinus, but you did get another
reward, reload and increase the donation you previously donated by 5000
and repeat until you get The Sentinus.  Once you get the Sentinus, donate
5000 gold and then 1000 gold until you get the other two gifts.  On
average a level 4 GOOD character will need 80,000 gold.

If you couldn't get the rewards at the Chapel of Skorm, you will be able
to get them now, as well as the rewards here at the Temple of Avo.

this sword.  So, how do you pull it out?

Witchwood Lake
""""""""""""""
Right away on your right is a couple of barrels.

	Inside the barrels you will find:
	  1 x Power Moustache
	  1 x Tofu
	  1 x Will Potion

Continue on the path and you will come to a split in the road, left (up

mini-map) takes you to Knothole Glade.

Go right, through the opening in the wall you will see a chest on the
left.

	Inside the chest you will find:
	  1 x Flame Augmentation



Outer Knothole Glade
""""""""""""""""""""
Before you complete the "" quest, Knothole Glade's gates are locked, but
there is a chest you can get on a small path just after the bridge on
your left that will take you to a chest.

	Inside the chest you will find:
	  1 x Emerald



Arena Entrance
""""""""""""""
Although you can't enter the Arena yet, you can go here to buy a new
title from the title trader.



(DD08)  Demon Door #8  - Knothole Glade
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
Before entering the gates into the town on your right is the demon door.

	"If you can hurt my face with an arrow, I'll crack wide open
	 for you."

Alright... shot him with an arrow.  You have to do a certain amount of
damage to open him up, a good enough bow with NO accuracy stats will
still open the door, and a bad bow with a high accuracy will also do it.

  I opened him using the Oak Crossbow and level 5 accuracy stats.

  I also opened him using the Ebony Crossbow and no accuracy stats.

All there is in this demon door is a chest.

	Inside the chest you will find:
	  1 x Elixir of Life



(FF16)  Fishing Location 16  -  Witchwood Stones
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
On your left across from Demon Door #7, is a fishing hole.

	You will find in this fishing hole:
	  (SK14)  Silver Key #14  -  Witchwood Stones



(GG13)  Digging Location 13  -  Witchwood Lake
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
At the start of Witchwood Lake (from the Temple of Avo) is that little
chunk of ruins that forces you to go left or right, right behind that
is a gargoyle statue that glows red, you can dig infront of it.

	When you dig up this area you will get:
	  (SK15)  Silver Key #15  -  Witchwood Lake



(FF17)  Fishing Location 17  -  Witchwood Lake
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
When you turn right at the Arena / Knothole Glade split, you go through
that stone-arced entrance and on your right is a pool of water that has
a fishing hole for you.

	You will find in this fishing hole:
	  1 x Will Master's Elixir



Mercinary #4
""""""""""""
Outside the Temple of Avo is the last mercinary, he is a very GOOD sided
character who is also very strong in combat.



(C04)  Silver Key Chest #4  -  15 Keys  -  Witchwood Stones [DD07]
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
If you go back to the Demon Door in the Witchwood Stones area, you can
go in to find the fourth Silver Key Chest.

	Silver Key Chest #4:
	  1 x Health Augmentation



(C05)  Silver Key Chest #5  -  15 Keys  -  Darkwood Lake
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
Go all the way back to Darkwood Lake, either the Barrowfields or the
Greatwood Cullis Gate will get you there in about the same time, so take
either path.

Once you get to Darkwood Lake, the chest is hiding on a little island
hiding behind the big stone on the right side of the watery area.

	Silver Key Chest #5:
	  1 x Arken's Crossbow
