    I'm inside the city of Myth Drannor and my problem lies with trying to get to the catacombs. The only way to get their is in the garden where you fall through the floor, correct? i have cleard the entire city area and now that i want to fall through the ground to get to the catacombs but it won't let me. On my map it shows the green arrows that mean there is a stairway. But i can't fall through, i just walk over it. is there another way?

    You have to have the completed Wizards Torc and use it-- did you get the first part from the orcs guarding the tumbledown stairs, and I think the second part is from the ghost Dwarf in the House of Gems--that should make the Gate appear (it's actually a gate, not the ground falling in--there IS ground falling in, in one of the areas to the east and north of the Wizards Hall outside I think, but that just leads to a small dwarven area-maybe a dozen rooms)

    well i had to go back to one of my saved games and start over cause the game was screwed.

    maalri, i was talking about the dwarven area. I just got the two mixed up. Anyway, I have everything i need to get into the catacombs but i'm not sure where to go and find the entrance. Can you help me out with this.

    Thanks

    Just west of the area you exit when you first come back out of the Hall of Wizards. From the statue, go west past a couple fights in relatively open areas to an area that has a coloseum, stadium like steps- there is the Circle of Ulair (or whatever his name is)

    But you are probably going to want to wipe out everything in ALL the above ground areas-and do all the quests there-First to get more Exp/HP/Abilities.

    Trust me on that one.

    thanks for the help. I just finished the first catacombs and those elves were the first challenge i had all game. One more question, what do i do with the lich, that guy who is surrownded by the sphere. I killed him once and when i came back to the room he was alive again.

    You have to find and destroy his Phylactery or he will keep coming back. It looks like a cube wooden box, and I think most of them (there are many Lichs in this game) are trapped- so be prepared for damage- but not a tremendous amount. The Phylactery is usually in the same room, or in a room nearby.

    you know what i find funny about the lich and his phylactery. Prior to this game i finished death knights of krynn and i had to do the exact same thing to kill the lich in that game. Also, are you currently playing POR? or did you finish it a while ago?

    You should definitely Re-run the ToEE game with the patches over at co8.org they have wonderfully updated it and made it more challenging and much more fun and less buggy! After finishing POR that is :) And it on sale right now at Wally-World (wal-mart) for only $9.84 if you lost your original $40 copy :)

    After i finish POR I'm going to play Dark Queen of Krynn. But i was considering playing TOEE again but i really don't like playing games over and over. For me, it gets boring.

    There is so much NEW stuff, but do what you would like.

    What's Dark Queen like? I am assuming the title means Tahkisis?

    What is Tahkisis? Its exactly like death knights and champions of krynn. Their late 80's and early 90's gold box dungeons and dragons. Horrible graphics, sound, user interface but the story line and need to really use your imagination really make up for it.

    Ahh, sounds interesting. Tahkisis is the Queen of Dragons in the Krynn World. Big Black Dragon, who can become a dark sultry sexy woman at will. Since her appearance is Dark and so is her Heart, I figured the title was reference to her.
