I am now the Hortator of Hlaalu and Redoran Houses and only one more house to go to complete my Fourth Trial. So, I got a Brown Book which lists all the Councilors of Telvanni House. All the councilors were in high Telvanni towers located in various places like Tel Aruhn, Tel Vos, Tel Mora, Tel Branora and Tel Naga.

The councilors Mistress Therana, Master Neloth, Mistress Dratha and Mater Aryon simply accepted me as the Hortator of Telvanni House. I think they got very big things to do rather than hearing my Nerevarine story. I told by Aryon that Archmagister Gothren would delay my request indefinitely and so me told me to kill him.

I went and met Gothren and as expected he asked me some time to think about my request. When I ask him again and again, he told me the same thing. So, there is no other way than killing him. But there were two Daedra standing beside him. So, I am sure it would be impossible for me to kill him. But, I too have no other way. So, I started fighting him. I saved and loaded in between fights 100 times and killed him. Then, I went back to Aryon's place and spoke to him. Since no surviving Councilors disagree with my request, he named me The Hortator of Great House Telvanni and gave me the Robe of Hortator.

Now I am the Hortator of all the three houses and completed my Fourth Trial of the Seven Visions of Seven Trials of the Incarnate. I am now to complete the Fifth Trial by persuading all the four camps of Velothi to accept me as Nerevarine.

But, before that I need to improve my close range fighting skills because I will surely face strong fighters in my path of Incarnate and I have to prepare myself for that. For that, I am going to the Red Mountains and practice my combat skills there.

I got myself a copy of Yellow Book, which has a list of all the councilors of House Hlaalu. Then, I started visiting each one of them to get my approval to be Hortator of the great house Hlaalu.

First, I went to Hlaalu Canton in Vivec. There I met Uncle Crassius and told him my Nerevarine story. He asked me 1000 gold to get his approval. I gave him that money and I accepted to name me Hortator and he told me to go and speak to other councilors. He also told me that if I was able to find Dram Bero, who is having his invisible house somewhere in Vivec, then he will accept my request. Then he told me to speak to Orvas Dren and Velanda and Nevena will automatically accept my offer.

After searching the No Name Club, I went inside the Haunted Manor in St. Olms and found Dram Bero inside. He accepted me to be the Hlaalu Hortator.

I travelled to Dren Plantation and met Orvas Dren. I persuaded him and made him to tell Velanda and Nevena to accept my offer. Then, I visited them both and without any question they accepted my request.

Then, I spoke to Yngling Half-Troll. He asked me 2000 gold. I gave him and he accepted me to be Hortator of Hlaalu.

Now I convinced all the councilors and went back to Uncle Crassius and he named the the Hortator of Great House Hlaalu and also gave me a Belt of Hortator.

Next, I have to convince the evil wizards of Telvanni House. Lets hope that goes fine...

I went to Redoran Council in Ald'Ruhn. I spoke to Neminda and she gave me a copy of Red Book, which enlists all the councilors of House Redoran. Now, I must visit all of them and convince them to accept me as Redoran's Hortator.

First, I met Mistress Morvayn, persuaded her and placed my request. She told that she cant take decision herself and she would discuss with other councilors, before accepting me as Redoran Hortator. Then I spoke to Arobar, Llethri, Ramoran and they also told me the same thing as Morvayn said.

Then I spoke to Athyn Sarethi. He told me that his son, Varvur Sarethi was kidnapped by Venim and he wanted me to rescue him. If I done this errand, he will name me Redoran Hortator and I think other councilors will also be convinced. So, I went to Venim manor and searched for Varvur. There was a small room behind a curtain in the wall and Varvur Sarethi was hidden in it. I rescued him bravely and spoke to Athyn Sarethi. He was very happy to his son and he accepted to name me the Redoran Hortator and also he spoke to other councilors and made them to accept as Hortator.

But, Athyn told me that Bolvyn Venim will never name an outlander as Hortator and he may call me for duel. As told, Bolvyn Venim challenged me for a duel in the Vivec's Arena. So, I went there and started the fight. He was fuckingly hard for me. I cant block the hit from his heavy two handed sword and one of his hit costed me half my life. So, I used SO many potions, saved and loaded 100 times, even levitated in the middle of fight and took rest. Then, after doing so many tricks and stunts I killed him:-)

Then, I went to Ald'ruhn and spoke to Athyn Sarethi. Since, there were no opposition for me in the Redoran house now, he named the Hortator of Redoran House and he gave me a Ring of Hortator and wished me all the best in my path of the Incarnate...

The third trial is to go the Cavern of the Incarnate and to get the Ring of Moon and Star. But the catch is all the details about that Cavern is hidden in a riddle, which goes as follows:


  • the eye of the needle in the teeth of the wind
  • the mouth of the cave lies in the skin of the pearl
  • the dream is the door and the star is the key

I spoke about this riddle to the ashlanders in the camp and found the following:
"The star is the Key" refers to the Azura's star which appears only in magical hour between day and night. This may mean that the door to the Cavern of the Incarnate will be open only during that time.

"the teeth of the wind" refers to the Airan's Teeth in the Valley of the wind, whose entrance is marked by two high rock spires.

With these assumptions, I went to the Airan's Teeth and found the Cavern of the Incarnate. But I cant get into the door. So, I waited till 6 AM and tried to go in. I went inside and saw Azura. She gave me the ring of Moon-and-Star. It is again confirmed that I am the Nerevarine. Also, I found the souls of some people who traveled the path of Incarnate, but failed. Each of them told me their story and gave me their precious artifacts.

With the Moon-and-Star ring, I went to Urshilaku Camp and met Sul-Matuul. He warned me of the danger for me from the Temple and recited me the needs and duties of Nerevarine. Then, he accepted me as Urshilaku Nerevarine. Then he reminded me of the forth trial to become the Hortator of all the three houses and fifth trial to be accepted as Nerevarine by all the four Velothi tribes.

I went to Urshilaku Camp and told Nibani Maesa about all the details of the lost
When asked about the Third Trial, Nibani Maesa told me about a Shrine to Azura called Cavern of the Incarnate and she told me to meet Sul-Matuul for more details.

morrowind, flame, atronach morrowind, bonelord morrowind

Sul-Matuul warned me that the path of Incarnate is a very hard one and many tough people failed the warrior test in the the path of Incarnate. Then, he gave me instructions to complete the Warrior test and only if I completed this test successfully, then I will be briefed about the Third Trial.
I have to go to Kogoruhn, the ancient halls of the forgotten house and collect 3 tokens.


  • The first one is just a Corprus weeping from a Corprus beast.
  • The second one is a Cup with the mark of House Dagoth
  • Third one is a Shadow Shield, which lies in the tomb of Dagoth Morin, deep beneath the lava tunnels.


After some 5 minutes walk from Urshilaku Camp, I reached Kogoruhn. First, I started exploring the tomb of Dagoth Morin. It is very big filled with insane creatures from all types of Atronach to evil Dagoth people. This tomb is really very big with so many tunnels, water ways, lava tunnels and much more. I searched for a very long time, but didnt found any of the token except the Corprus weeping. So, I came out of the tomb and searched the other three buildings in Kogoruhn. They are all just one roomed building and I found the House Dagoth cup there. Then, again I went into the tomb of Dagoth Moring and after a long time, I found the Shadow Shield. I spent almost two hours in Kogoruhn and found all the tokens.

While I was roaming through the lava tunnels of Dagoth Morin Tomb, I found a door which leads directly to the Red Mountain, bypassing the Ghostgate. But, I didnt go into it, since I wanted Dagoth Ur to live some more days:-)

When, I was about to return to Urshilaku Camp, I found the dead body of an Ordinator there. All his armors were worth more than 1 lakh gold. I looted them all and went back to the camp and gave the tokens to Sul-Matuul. He was really impressed by my success and accepted to tell me about the Third Trial.

Then, I went to Vivec and searched for Mehra Milo and found a note addressed to Amaya in her room. The notes stated that she was locked up in Ministry of Truth and she wanted me to come there with two Divine Intervention scrolls for escape. Then, I levitated to Ministry of Truth and spoke to Alvela Saram, the Ordinator guarding entrance into Ministry of Truth. Mehra already spoke to Alvela and so she gave me the key to get into Ministry of Truth. with the key I went inside and started searching for Mehra. A guard saw me and started chasing me and I immediately casted my Moon Shadow power and became invisible. Again, I started my search and found the Mehra Milo in a Cell. Then, I gave her the Divine Intervention scroll I bought and she told me to meet her in the secret Dissident Priests monastry at Holamayan. Also, she told me how to come there and informed me that the entrance to the monastry will be opened only at the magical twilight hours sacred to Azura.

As she said, I went to Holamayan Monastry and met her. She thanked me for rescuing her and she spoke for sometime about the Prophecies, Tribunal and much more. Then, I spoke to Gilvas Barelo, the head of Dissident Priests. He told me the ancient stories of Dagoth Ur, Formation of Tribunal and Kagrenac's Tools. Then he told me about the two prophecies, "The Lost Prophecy", "The Seven Curses", which may be lost prophecies I have been looking for. Then he recited me the versus of this prophecies. Also, he revealed me truth about the corrupt nature of Divine powers of Tribunal and much more.

After getting all the details about whats going on in Morrowind from ancient times and the lost prophecies, I started to go to Urshilaku Camp to meet Nibani Maesa.

To cure my Corprus Disease, I went to Tel Fyr and met the Telvanni wizard Divayth Fyr. I gave him the beautiful Dwemer artifact and he liked it. I spoke to him about the Cure for Corprus disease and he said that he tested so many cure potions on so many people and all of them are failed. Also, he had a new potion at that time and he wanted me to bring a Dwemer boots from his Corprusarium in exchange for the potion.

I went into the Corprusarium and got the Dwemer boots from a half-human half-spider person named Yagrum Bagarn. Then I returned back and gave the boots to Divayth Fyr and he gave me the potion. It worked perfect and I got rid of the Corprus Disease. Also, I am now immune to this Corprus Disease and Blight Disease, which makes me pass the Second trial.

Now itself I am feeling godly inside:-) Soon I will finish the other trials and become the real Nerevarine.

After passing the second trial, I went to Balmora and reported to Caius. He said that he was recalled to Imperial City and he made me an Operative in Blades ranking which means I am the Blades agent in Vvardenfell district. He told me to find the lost prophecies and deliver it to Nibani Maesa and continue my work on becoming the Nerevarine. He told me to approach Mehra Milo to get the lost prophecies. Then he left Vvardenfella and went to Imperial City...

I met Nibani Maesa to test myself against the Nerevarine Prophecies. She said there were 2 different Nerevarine Prophecies, The Stranger and The Seven Visions. She started reciting me the versus of the
prophecy, "Seven Visions of Seven Trials of the Incarnate". The versus goes as follows:
First Trial
On a certain day to uncertain parents.
Incarnate moon and star reborn.
Second Trial
Neither blight not age can harm him.
The Curse-of-Flesh before him flies.
Third Trial
In caverns dark Azura's eye sees
and makes to shine the moon and star.
Fourth Trial
A stranger's voice unites the Houses.
Three Halls call him Hortator.
Fifth Trial
A stranger's hand unites the Velothi.
Four Tribes call him Nerevarine.
Sixth Trial
He honors the blood of the tribe unmourned.
He eats the sin, and is reborn.
Seventh Trial
His mercy frees the cursed false gods,
Binds the broken, and redeems the mad.

Then she recited the versus of the prophecy, "The Stranger", which was:
When earth is sundered, and skies chokes black,
And sleepers serve the seven curses,
To the hearth there comes a stranger,
Journeyed far neath the moon and star.

Though stark-born to uncertain
His aspect marks his certain fate.
wicked stall him, righteous curse him.
Prophets speak, but all deny.

Nibani Maesa told that Dissident Priests of the temple were studying the Nereverine prophecies for a long time and they much more about the lost prophecies. So, she wanted me to bring a copy of the lost
prophecies from them.

Then, I went to Balmora and reported to Caius. He told me that he will contact Mehra Milo and ask her to get the lost prophecies from the Dissident Priests. In the meantime, he gave a tough task to
finish.. I will write about it in the next post...

Caius told me that Fort Buckmoth Legion found a Sixth House Base and Sixth House Shrine and a Sixth House Priest named Dagoth Gares near Gnaar Mok. My order is to go that Sixth House Base and kill the priest Dagoth Gares.

Inside Ilunibi shrine

I found the Ilunibi shrine, the sixth house base near Gnaar Mok. It is a very vast base under the ground with so many undead creatures, daedra, atronaches, dreamers and much more. After more than an hour of hunting, I met the priest Dagoth Gares. He referred me as Lord Nerevar and he told me that I must accept the friend request of Dagoth Ur and join him and drive away the false gods from the land of Vvardenfell. He spoke enough and its time for some action. He was a little tough, but I killed him after a small tough fight. Then, I took a message of Dagoth Ur to me from the priest. My mission was over here, but I got the Corprus disease, which was said to be an unhealable disease.

After the Sixth House Base is cleared of creatures, I returned back to Balmora and reported to Caius. Caius promoted me to Traveler rank and told me that meeting the Divayth Fyr, a Telvanni wizard will help to do something better with my Corprus disease. Also, Caius gave me a Dwemer artifact to give to Divayth Fyr, which will please him and make him to help me.

I doubt myself not to be the Nerevarine, because the second trial says the Corprus disease cant infect the Nerevarine. But I am affected. Only time will tell what's the real truth. So, lets continue our journey...

After a very long journey, I reached Urshilaku Camp. But, I remembered that I cant just enter into the Yurt of the leader. I need someone to sent me in there. SO, I spoke to an Ashlander in the camp and he
liked to have a Trama Root. I had one and gave it to him as a thoughtful gift. So, on my request, he sent me to meet the head of their Camp.

I met Sul-Matuul, the head of Urshilaku Ashlanders. I told him my story and that I needed to be tested against the Nerevarine Prophecies. But he told that only an Ashlander or the Clanfriend of them can be
tested for the prophecies. But I am an outlander. So, I told me to fetch the Sul-Senipul's Bonebiter Bow in the burial caverns of Sul-Senipul, the father of Sul-Matuul. If I get and return the bow to
Sul-Matuul then he will adopt me as a Clanfriend of Urshilaku Tribe. This act of bringing the bow is called as Initiation rite.

I searched for a while and found the burial grounds of Urshilaku. It was extremely large inside, with so many sub-burial grounds. I spend much time here searching for the Bonebiter Bow. After nearly an
hour of searching, I found the ghost of Sul-Senipul. I fought it, killed it and retrieved the bow from its remains.

With the bow, I returned to Urshilaku Camp and gave it to Sul-Matuul. He was very surprised to see the bow and he told me to keep the bow myself. He also accepted me as a clanfriend of their tribe and
forwarded me to Nibani Maesa, the wise woman, to test me against the Nerevarine Prophecies.

Caius wanted me to meet Hassour Zainsubani, an Ashlander who left the wastes to become a wealthy trader in Ald'ruhn, to investigate about the Ashlanders. I went to Ald'ruhn and met Hassour. He told me about
the thoughtful gift, that is used to please any Ashlander and to gain their trust. Also, while speaking he mentions that he love poetry. So, I went to a nearby merchant and bought a copy of "Ashland Hymns".
Then, I presented that book to Hassour. He was very pleased and was ready to answer whatever I need to know.

Hassour said that no Ashlander would like a total stranger to enter their home. The stranger must present him a thoughtful gift or should me sent by some other Ashlander or else the Stranger must duel
the Ashlander and defeat him. Then, I asked more about the Ashlanders and Nerevarine Cult. He gave me some notes and I returned back to Balmora and reported to Caius.

Caius promoted me to Finder Rand and he showed me the decoded package that I delivered him before and asked me to read them. It is written that the Emperor believes in the Nerevarine Prophecies and also
think that I AM THE NEREVARINE...

Now, I'm to travel to Urshilaku Camp to speak with the heads of Nerevarine Cult, Sul-Matuul and Nibani Maesa and to test myself against the Prophecies.

I started my journey to Urshilaku Camp thinking that I might be the real Nerevarine:-)

Caius wanted me to go to Vivec and collect information about the Nerevarine cult and Sixth House cult from three persons. They are Addhiranirr, Huleeya and Mehra Milo.

So, I went to Vivec and spoke with Huleeya first. She was in Black Shalk Cornerclub in the Foreign Quarters. Since some people were troubling her in the Cornerclub, I killed them and took her to
Jobasha's Rare Books, where she felt she was safe. There Huleeya gave small notes on Nerevarine Cult and its conflict with the Temple. But she don’t know anything about the Sixth House cult.

Then I went to the Temple in Vivec to find Mehra Milo and found her in the Hall of Wisdom. She says about the Nerevarine cult's claiming of Tribunal to be the false gods and the work of Dissident priests
name "Progress of Truth". She says that I must get a copy of that book and give it to Caius. Also she wanted me to inform Caius that she was being watched by the Ordinators and if something goes wrong she
will leave a message under the agreed code word "amaya".

Then I went to St. Olms searching for Addhiranirr. After searching the whole Canton I found her at the lowest level in the sewers. She was so concerned about the Census and Excise agent who was looking for
her. She wanted me to get rid of him and she agreed to give all the information she knows. So, I went up and met the agent and lied to him that Addhiranirr went to the mainland. He believed me and so he
left the place. Then I went back to the bottom and met Addhiranirr again. She now opened her mouth and told that the smugglers were working for the Sixth House and doing their business very quietly, that it
was impossible for her to find out what they were smuggling.

With all the information I gained, I went to Balmora and reported to Caius Cosadus. He was happy that I was doing my duties well and paid me 200 gold.

While wandering through the Icy lands of Soltheism, I saw a broken airship near Hrothmund's Bane. I went near that ship and found that all the crew members were dead. This space ship reminded me of the quest given by Louis Beauchamp in Ald'ruhn. So, I searched all over the ship to check whether the crew found the Amulet of Infectious Charm. This is the amulet for which Louis Beauchamp sent his crew here. But all the crew members were dead including the Captain and so they failed Louis. After reading through the Airship Captain's Jouranl I understood that the crew members lost their minds and lives because of the heart piercing chillness of Soltheism.

I decided to search for this Amulet myself and searched the surrouding area. After a while, I found the entrance to Hrothmund's Barrow, where the Amulet of Infectious Charm is likely to be found. On trying to get in to the cave, I was stopped by the voice of Hrothmund's Bane and he asked me a name and showed me a 4 names. Louis told me that the name was Ondjage. So, I selected that name, which was correct and hence I got access into the Hrothmund's Barrow. Inside the barrow, I found that Amulet of Infectious Charm and immediately I teleported to Ald'ruhn and returned the Amulet to Louis. He gave me 2000 gold for the feat I had done and thanked me a lot.

I played Call of Duty 2 a year back and I love the game. Yesterday I got Call of Duty 4 from my friend. I started playing the game today morning. From the first mission, "Crew Expendable" itself, the game ROCKED. I loved all the missions and was so involved in the game and I forgot my lunch itself. AFter nearly 8 hours of playing I completed the game and was so upset with the size of the game. It is too small that I finished it in a single day.

I am not in a mood to post about my COD 4 gameplay, because I have so many games to complete before my semester leave ends. Also, in the next semester of my College, I have to concentrate on doing a project. Also, I have a BIG plan to develop a very BIG game for Image Cup Challenge of Microsoft. So, I wont be playing much on next Semester.

Now I am trying to get Call of Duty 6. Hope it will run on my PC...

The only thing everyone says about Soltheism is "A Terrible Place, I've Heard". On Hearing the same thing from everyone, I was curious to go and check it out. Surely it it impossible for me to swim to Soltheism. So, I decided to take the only boat to Soltheism from Khuul. I went to Khull by boat from Vivec to Hla Oad, then to Gnaar Mok and then finally to Khull. Then from there, I went to one of the few habitable place in Soltheism, Fort FrostMoth. To go from Balmora to Fort FrostMoth, I spent nearly 1500 gold coins for the Silt Strider and Boat services itself. I spent much of money to come here, so surely I am not going empty handed. I am gonna hunt down everything in the Island of Soltheism and loot whatever I finds worthy.

I spent so much time(in days) in Soltheism. So here I am going to write only some of the rare feats that I achieved...

Helped out Ingmar by distracting a Draugr, so that he had enough time to kill it...
Learned Secuity, Mysticism skills to level 25 with the loot from Soltheism hunt...
Hired a Champion, Bralas Andaren from the Mercenary Representative of A Lords's Men Representative...
Partnered with the Adventurer and Archer, Luthien Morvayn in Balmora Fighters Guild...
Brought the two of them to Soltheism after equipping them with some of my best Gears...
Left Bralas Andaren in Fort Frostmoth and took only Luthien Morvayn with me for hunting in Soltheism...
Killed a WereWolf...
Killed a Snow bear and created a Snow Bear Helm
Helped the Widow Kolfinna by taking wergild from Sigvatr the Strong and giving it to her...

After the long journey with Pemenic, I was really exhausted and ran out of supplies. So, I went back to my home, Balmora and bought a lot of potions and arrows and I again went to Gnisis from Caldera. But this time, killing each and every Creatures on the way. I killed all the bandits, hostile Ashlanders on the way.

After a long walk, I met Sason, who gave me the mission of finding her wife, Malexa. There was a tomb near him, named Alen Ancestoral Tomb. I went inside it thinking that Malexa will be inside it. There were a number of powerful Vampires with some great weapon. I killed them all and I found a Vampire holding a Daedirc Bow named Daedric Longbow of Sureflight. I took it and its attack rate is 2 - 50, the best bow I ever seen. Even its attack is more than the Best Long Blades I seen. It is enchanted with the constant effect of Fortify Marksman 10 pts. Also, I found Steel Jinkblade of the Aegis, which is a short blade with paralyze effect on strike. I found some valuable artifacts in this Alen Ancestrol Tomb, but Malexa was not here. I was levelled to Level 8 while I was fighting with Vampires in the Tomb.

I came out and again spoke to Sason. He said that the cultists might have taken Malexa to any Shrine. So, I searched for any nearby shrines. While searching I found a number of Hostile Creatures and bandits and killed them all. AFter some search, I found Maelkashishi Shrine. I went inside and so many bandits in there tried to kill me. Inside the shrine I dont have enough space to back up when my opponenets neared me. So, I switched to the Steel Jinkblade of Aegis and paralyzed everyone. Then, immeditely switched to the Longbow of Sureflight and shooted arrows at them. But repeating this paralyze and shoot combination I killed them all in a close fight. Inside the shrine I didnt find Malexa and met and Orc named Bulfim gra-Shugarz. She was very angry at everyone. I tried to spoke her, but she shouted at me. I tried to persuade her by giving gold, but failed. Since Malexa was not here, I went out to find her.

After a while, I found a shrine named Ashalmawia. This is a very big Shrine with a large number of big rooms and also an underground Sunken Vaults at its bottom. As the room is big, the Cultists are also very large in number. I took them out one by one. After killing everyone in the Shrine and went inside the Sunken Vaults. There I found a powerful warrior, Gordol. I am certain that I am not strong enough to face him straight. So, I started shooting arrows from the top and killed him. Then, I went down and was very very surprised to see his gears. He was wearing Ebony armor set costing in ten of thousands. I looted everything and came to the top of the Shrine. Inside a small locked room I found Malexa and safely escorted her to Sason. He thanked me and told me that he will raise my reputation in Redorn House.

From the loots in this mission, I earned about 7000 gold and some special artifacts, my Daedric Bow and some parts of Ebony armor set. I was not satisfied with the BIG hunting session I had. I want to taste the blood of even more powerful creatures. So, my next journey is to the land of nightmare, Soltheism

I went for hunting with my team mates to the North of Caldera. We killed so many beasts, but I lost both my mates in this hunting session.

Then, I was roaming the forests alone and found a Merchant named Pemenic. She asked me to escort her to Gnaar Mok and she told me that she will reward me with the Boots of Blinding Speed. I already heard about this mission from my friend Sairam. He said that I have to take her to Gnisis. So, without hearing what she said I started my journey to Gnisis. Gnisis was very far from here and it took almost an hour for me to go to Gnisis. On the way, I met several groups of bandits and two persons, who gave me some mini quests. They are Rasha and Sason. Rasha gave me 5 expensive shirts and asked me to deliver it to Bivale Teneran in Ald ruhn. Sason wanted me to find her wife, who was kidnapped a mob of Cultists. Now I was taking Pemenic to Gnisis, so I ignored them now. Then, after a long journey I reached Gnisis. I spoke to Pemenic and came to realize that her destination is Gnaar Mok, not Gnisis. But sadly, a bat killed her in Gnisis. All I want is the Boots of Blinding Speed and not her. So, I took the Boots from her body and left Gnisis.

Then I went to Ald ruhn and gave the shirts, that Rasha gave me, to Bivale Teneran. Bivale thanked me and rewarded me with Belt of Iron Will.

I went to Fighters Guild to look for any new jobs. Eydis Fire-Eye was waiting for me to assign me a job. She told me that there are two egg poachers in the Shulk Egg Mine south of Balmora, very near to Odai River. She ordered me to take care of them.

So, I started my journey to Shulk Egg Mine after buying some Health potion from Ajira. It was not very far from Balmora. I went inside the Shulk Egg Mine and killed a large number of Kwama Foragers and Kwama Workers. These acts wont stop the mining operation, since Kwama Workers will respawn after some time. There is a door in there that led to Queen's lair. I went in and found the egg pochers there. On seeing me, they ran towards me and started attacked me without a word. So, I killed them both and so my mission got over. I returned to Balmora and reported to Eydis. She gave me 100 gold and also some potions.

Also Eydis Fire-Eye gave me another assignments of killing four Telvanni agents responsible for thefts in Caldera Mine.

I am sure I cant kill four people all by myself. So, I looked out for some Adventurer to accompany me. There were many free lance Adventurers, but most of them will accompany me only if I was of higher level. I am level 4 now. Noldomir in Lucky Lockup accepted to accompany me, if I were level 5. So, to increase my level to 5, I went to the wild for some hunting.

But this is gonna be a very different kind of hunting. I removed all my armors and weapons, wore just the common pants and shirts and went to the lake near Pelagiad to fight the Mud Crabs with my bare hands. This is to improve my Unarmored and Hand to Hand skills. I started the mud crab hunting at night. The whole night, I killed just 5 mud crabs, but with my bare hands. This increased my Unarmored and Hand to Hand skills by many levels and also I levelled up to 5.

Then, I went back to Balmora and teamed up with Noldomir. With him, I left Balmora through the North gate to Caldera Mine. There was an Adventurer named Telania Neloth on the way from Balmora to Caldera. She also joined us and we three proceeded to Caldera Mine. It was very late night and faced a few zombies and other gory creatures on the way to Caldera Mine. We killed them all and atlast reached there. Alveleg was standing there and welcoming us. Without a word, I started attacking Alveleg and my teammates also joined me. We took him out easily. But the other agents were not here. There was a cave nearby and we found the other agents in there. We killed them all and returned back to Balmora. I reported the death of Telvanni agents to Eydis and she paid me 400 gold.

I already heard rumours that the Legion Champion, Larrius Varro wanted to meet me. So, To learn the truth, I went to Fort Moonmoth and met Larrius Varro. He told me a very BIG story about a corrupted Magistrate and he wanted me to kill some bad people, who were supporting the bad Magistrate. But the problem is he dont know, who that bad people are. Since he is in the Legion, no one is willing to tell anything to him. So, he wanted me to find out who those bad people are and kill them.

I went to the Corner Club in Balmora and asked the people in there about the bad people. They told me that the bad people are the members of Camonna Tong and they can be found in the Council Club and their names are Vadusa Sathryon, Marasa Aren, Madrale Thirith, Sovor Trandel and Thanelan Velas.

This is gonna be a toughest fight for me and Marianne as I have to face four people at a time. Since they are in the Council club, I cant even run back to get myself some time. But I have some arrows with paralize effect. So, my plan is I will paralyze those people and Marianne is gonna kill them. With this plan in mind, I went inside Council Club and started attacking Thanelan Velas. Immediately the other four ran upto his rescue. I paralyzed them one by one with my bow. After some time, I took my shord sword with drain health effect and I also started attacking them. The battle is finally won, but at a very big loss. Marianne was dead. She fought very well, but she was not able to use potions. Even I survived only because of some health potion that I used in between. Death of Marianne is a big loss for me. She accompanied me from the start of the game. She was a great partner for me. But, five vs two is a very tough fight and big losses aint a big surprise. Also, without her, it would be impossible for me to kill those people. I wish her soul to rest in peace.

My bounty was very high because of killing 5 people. So, I used Divine Intervention to get to Fort Moonmoth. I reported to Larrius varro. He was very happy and gave the emperor's gift, a Ring of Surroundings with 20 to 30% Chameleon effect. Also, he spoke to higher level authorites to clear my Bounty to zero.

I joined both the Fighters guild and Mages Guild and also progressed to a decent level. But, I missed out the Thieves Guild. So, I joined it by speaking to Sugar-Lips Habasi in Southwall CornerClub. As a first mission, she wanted me to steal a diamond from Nalcarya of White Haven. But I already had a diamond with me and I gave it to her.

Then, she told me to bring the Key to Nerano Manor. Also, she told me that Sovor Trandel, servant of Nerano might have a duplicate key. He was one of the bad people, whom I killed for Larrius Varo. So, I already took the key from him. So, I gave it to Habasi. Before giving her the key, I unlocked all the doors in Nerano Manor and also kept a few of my things in there. For giving the key, she gave me 500 gold and also promoted me to Footpad.

I went to Mages Guild and spoke to Ajira. She had a series of some silly quests for me.
The first quest is to collect some flowers. Those flowers are not of very rare type. Also, I already had those flowers and gave those to Ajira. She thanked me and gave me the next quest. It is to buy her a Ceramic Bowl for her from Ra'Virr. I did that too.

With all the help I did to her, she completed her experiments and her prepared her report. But Galbedir had stolen her reports and hiden it somewhere. She wanted me to find that missing reports. Both the reports are inside the Mages guild only and I found them with ease. I returned that reports to her and she thanked me again. Also, she have no more quests for me and she told me to visit Mages Guild in other towns for more mission.

I met Sharn gra-Muzgob in the Balmora Mages Guild to get info about the Nerevarine Cult. She told me that she will give all the info, once I retrieved the skull of Llevule Andrano from Andrano Ancestral Tomb.

I was told that the tomb is just south of Pelagiad. I went to Seyda Neen first with Marianne. There I sold few things to Arrille and headed towards the Andrano Ancestral Tomb. There were a number of Skeletons and few zombies in there. I killed them all with Marianne on my side. Some of the Skeleton Archers in there had some arrows with paralyze effect, which will surely be of great help, if I have to face a very tough opponent. Then I retrieved the skull of Llevule Andrano and returned to Balmora.

I gave Sharn gra-Muzgob the skull and she gave me notes on Nerevarice cult. I went to Caius home and gave him the notes on Nerevarine Cult. He thanked me and asked me to give him some time to think how all this information fit in with Emperor's plan for me.

I explored the streets of Balmora with my partner, Marianne. I found the Fighters Guild and went inside. In there, I spoke to Eydis Fire-Eye, the steward of Balmora Fighters Guild. She accepted me into Fighters Guild and to test my capabilites she gave me a small quest. The quest is to kill the rats that infested Drarayne Thelas's house.

Then I spoke with all the people in Fighters Guild and got some extensive info about various things in Morrowind. Also, there is a rumour that the Legion Champion, Larrius Varro, over at Fort Moonmoth wants to talk to me. The day 1 in Morrowind got over. The Day 1 got over in Morrowind.

Then I went to Mages Guild, located next to Fighters Guild. I spoke to the Ranis Athrys, the steward of Mages Guild and joined the guild. Ajira one of the mage in Mages guild asked me to bring samples of four types of mushrooms. I already have all the types she asked. So, I gave them to her immediately and she thanked me. Ranis Athrys promoted me to Apprentice. Again I spoke to Ajira and she told me to sabotage Galbedir's experiment by replace the soul gem, she has been experimenting on with a fake soul gem. I did that and she thanked me again.

Till now I didnt cleaned the house of Thelas from Rat Infestation. So, I went there and killed all the rats in her bed room and upstairs. Thelas thanked me for killing the rats and gave me 100 gold. Then, I reported to Eydis Fire-Eye and got promoted. I am now Brave Heart, the Apprentice.

Now, I got my inventory full, but most of them are scrap. So, I went back to Seyda Neen to sell all the items. There are so many traders here itself in balmora. But, my Persuasion level with Arrille is 85. So, he will pay me better price. Thats why I am going to Seyda Neen.

I went to Seyda Neen by walk with my partner, Marianne. There I sold all the garbage I had to Arrille. With the money I got, I bought a short bow.

Then with Marianne, I went into the cave of Addamasartus to wipe the cave of the bandits. We killed all the bandits in there and searched the whole area. Marianne is a heavy close range fighter with a single handed sword. Also, her sword is enchanted with lighting damage. Her superb weapon along with her great skills only killed all the bandits in the cave. I did nothing but attracted the bandits towards me, giving time to Marianne to easily take out the opponents.

From the loot, we got in there, I made nearly 500 gold. Then we proceeded to Balmora and on the way, I tried to rest. But, an assassin showed up and started to attack me. He is very strong. But with my bow, I made him some damage and also Marianne killed him easily with her lightning axe. I took his armor set. It looked crappy, but it gave me a decent armor rating of 40. So, I kept it myself.

I forgot my main mission itself. I was told by Sellus Gravius to meet a man named Caius Cosades and deliver his a package. So, I went to his home now and met him. He is the Master of the Blades and I gave him the package. He read it and accepted me as a Novice in the Blades. Caius sent me to Hasphat Antabolis at the Balmora Fighters Guild. I am to get information about Nerevarine secret cult and Sixth House Secret Cult.

I went to Fighters Guild and spoke to Hasphat. He asked me to do a favour, before his give the info. He wanted me to go to the nearby Dwemer ruin called Arkngthand and find a cube called Dwemer Puzzle Box. With Marianne, I went to the ruin and killed nearly 10 people in there. After searching the place for almost an hour, I found the Dwemer Puzzle Box and I returned it to Hasphat.

He gave me all the details abour the Nerevarine secret cult and Sixth house secret cult. He also told me that the Dwemer Puzzle box looks like a key and he asked me to come back later to check our what the Puzzle Box really is.

The notes given by Hasphat only describes in detail about the Sixth house cult, but not about the Nerevarine cult. So again, Caius Cosades sent me to Sharn gra-Muzgob at the Balmora mages guild to get more info about the Nerevarine cult.

Trip to Balmora:
Me, Brave Heart and Marianne started our journey to Balmora. On the way we met a Pilgrim, then we crossed the small village, Pelagiad. While on the road northwest of Pelagiad, I met a beautiful breton woman, Maurrie Aurmine. She is very strange because ahe fell in love with a bandit, Nelos Onmar, who robbed her. She asked me to track down Nelos and give him her glove as a token of her affection. This seems to be a silly quest, but I accepted to help her out for the sake of true love. Then, after running for a small time, we finally reached Balmora.

The Extraordinary Spell of Tarhiel:
I am now in Seyda Neen. Before going to Balmora, I planned to familiarize myself with the world of Morrowind and hence roamed in the wilderness around Seyda Neen. I killed a few crabs and rats and while running I heard someone screeming and seen a guy who fell down from the sky. I neared him and found that he was dead. His name is Tarhiel and he dropped a book near him. The book seemed to be his diary, in which he wrote about a spell that he formulated to help people to fly across the sky. I found three spell scrolls in his body, which will fortify your Acrobatics skill by 1000. So, it seemed that he used that spell to fly to sky and then he fell from that great height and died. I took all the 3 scrolls.

Processus Vitellius, The Tax Collector:
While going back to Seyda Neen, I found the body of Processus Vitellius, who seemed to be the tax collector in Seyda Neen. Someone who is not wanting to pay the tax might have killed him. I took 200 gold from his body and reported this matter to Socucius in Census Office. He took the tax money from me and promised me to pay 500 gold, if I bring justice to his death. The lady in the Light house told me that Gilnith had some hot argument with Processus and he might be the reason behind Processus's death. Then I visited Gilnith and he openly admitted that he is the murder and he justified his act with some stupid answers. I killed him and took the Ring of Processus from him and reported to Socucius. He was pleased with me and gave me 500 gold as promised.

Fargoth and his lost Ring:
I met a Bosmer named Fargoth, who claims the Imperials have stolen his ring. I gave him the Engraved Ring of Healing. He was overjoyed and he told me to meet his friend Arrille, who owns the tradehouse Seyda Neen. He promised that I will get great discounts from Arrille. Then, we chatted for some time and he told me about a terrible Island in Morrowind named Solstheism. Then, I went to Arrille Trade house and bought myself a light armor set.

Marianne de Castor:
I met an adventurer named Marianne de Castor. After bribing her, she accepted to accompany me where ever I go. So, going to Balmora through the wilderness wont be a big problem, with Marianne on my side.

I am Brave Heart, a prisoner and came to Morrowind in a boat as per the king's order. After arriving at the port of Seyda Neen, I went into the Census and Excise Office to get my release papers. There, I met a guy called Socucius Ergalla, who asks about my Race, Class and the Birthsign. I chose to play as a Ranger and so I chose Wood Elf, as my Race. Then I created a custom class named Silent Shooter, whose specialization is Stealth and the favourite attributes are Agility and Speed. For the major skills, I chose Marksman, Light Armor, Short Blade, Athletics, Block and for the minor skills, I chose Unarmored, Acrobatics, Illusion, Mercantile and Security. I chose The Shadow as my birthsign. After selecting all this, Socucius Ergalla gave me my release papers and told me to go and meet the captain, Sellus Gravius.

On the way to Sellus Gravius room, I took an Engraved Ring of Healing with some magical properties from a Barrel. Then, I went into the room of Sellus Gravius. He released me and gave me an order to deliver a package to Caius Cosadus in Balmora. Now, I am not a prisoner and is free to go anywhere in the land of Morrowind.

For the past one month, I have been playing Morrowind. I was so immersed in the game, that I got no time to write for the blog. Also, my semester exams came and for the past one week, I even winded up morroind and studying for my exams. In the middle of heavy study sessions, to relax myself, I was playing some small flash games like Bubble Trouble and Balloon Invasion and I completed Balloon Invasions yesterday. My exams will get over on November 27th and after that only I will continue to play Morrowind.

I played the game with no mods installed and I dont like the way my character develops. I not even completed half of the missions, but I maxed out almost all my attributes except Luck. So, I am thinking of playing the game from start, with mods like GCD and more installed and with a different character, most likely a Ranger.

In the Chromanin cave, there is now a corpse of a man. Chromanin 6 is with that Corpse.

On opening the book, it doesnt have any text or nothing. Even the corpse had no special gifts. Opening the book spawned two Skeleton mages. I killed them and they too dont have anything special. I was expecting some big thing as a gift of solving this Chromanin riddle. But, there was none.

Then, I went to swamp camp and killed most of the people there, including a few Baals. I leveled during the swamp camp raid and with the skill points I earned, I learned the Fifth Circle of Magic from Saturas.

Then, I went to the mountain Fort and informed Lester about all the things that happened in the Valley and told him to meet his friends at the regular meeting place.

I found a big troll near the plain of Old Mine. I killed it and took its teeth. Then, I roamed around the forests and killed a Shadow Beast and took its horn. Then, I went into Old Camp by transforming into a Meat Bug and going through the small gap below the closed gate.

I killed all the diggers and guards in Old Camp, even inside the Castle. Then, I went to Swamp Camp and hunted down all the Swamp Sharks there and also took their teeth. Then to get the tongue of fire lizard, I went to the Ship Wreck near the Chromanin Cave. There were nearly 5 Fire Lizards, I killed them all and took their Tongues.

With the skill points I earned, I went to Saturas and learned the Thrid Circle of Magic. Then, I gave the minecrawler plates to Wolf. Then, I went back to Free Mine and gave all the four items to Tarrok(the orc slave). He created the ULU-MULU and gave it to me.

Now my level is 28 with 115 Strength. Here is a screenshot of my Stat Screen:

Then, I learned fourth circle of Magic from Saturas also I got the High Robe of mages. Then, I fought Riordian who is standing behind Saturas and looted ALL HIS POTIONS, which included hundreds of healing, mana, speed potions and much more. Then, I spoke with Wolf. He finished the minecrawler armor and gave it to me.

I went to the Orc Town with the Ulu-Mulu. Since, I have the Ulu-Mulu, none of the Orcs attack me. I went deep inside the Orc Town and there were 5 orc Shamans worshipping an Idol. I killed them all one by one and took the Figurine at the top of the Idol with the help of Telekinesis spell. Then, I came back and killed all other Orcs, except the few which were dancing and not a threat to me.

Before going into the Underground temple, I came back to New Camp and relaxed there for some time.

I went to Saturas Place. There Riordian welcomed me and told me that Gorn was waiting for me and also he has a plan to recapture the free mine.

Then I went and met Gorn. He is waiting for me on the way to Free Mine with some other Mercenaries. He told me that we must do a Stealth mission and capture the Free Mine. But, before going there, Gorn told me to go and meet Wolf in the new camp.

I went back to the new camp and met wolf there. He told me about a completely new type of armor made of minecrawler's plates. To create one, he wanted me to get some hard minecrawler plates, which is the hardest material in the valley. He also taught me how to cut those hard plates from the minecrawlers.

Then I went to the Free Mine with Gorn. In the free mine, I took the best two-handed sword, "Warrior's Voice", from Okyl's body. There, Jackal and other few guards were guarding the entrance to the free mine. I killed them and went into the New Mine.

In the Free Mine, there were nearly 20 to 30 guards. Me and Gorn killed them all and freed the free mine. Also, I killed all the minecrawlers I encountered and took the plates from them, which wolf asked. Then, at the far end of the mine I met an Orc Slave named Tarrok. It was hurt badly and very urgently needed its medicine, which it lost, whilte running here. I searched around a bit and found the Orc Medicine and gave it to the Orc. It thanked me and told me that if I brought the essential elements, it will make one ULU-MULU. The required material to create ULU-MULU are
Tongue of Fire Lizard
Horn of Shadow Beast
Teeth of Swampshark
Tooth of Big Troll

After all the heavy fights in the Free Mine, I went back to New Camp to relax myself. There, I informed Lee that the Free Mine had been recaptured.

To know more about the Orc Town, Xardas told me to meet an Orc Shaman in a ruined Old Citadel in the Orc Land. The Citadel is the place, where I took the Chromanin book - Part 2, as in this post.
gothic, game, ur, shak, location
I went to the Citadel and found some Orc Warriors fighting with an Orc Shaman, which must be the Shaman I am looking for. So, I helped that shaman by killing the Orc Warriors. Surprisingly, that Orc Shaman named Ur-Shak spoke to me. I told me a small story about the Sleeper:
Orcs call the Sleeper as KRUSHAK. Long back five Orc Shamans built an underground temple for Sleeper and then gave heart to the Sleeper. But, Sleeper is very bad and cursed all those who built the temple. So, the Shamans who built the temple were cursed and they become something like Zombies, alive and dead at the same time.
Then, the Orcs at the Orc Town sealed the entrance to the temple of Sleeper. Now, the brothers of Ur-Shak are doing sacrifices for the Sleeper. Ur-Shak told other sacrifice is bad, so he is sent out into exile.
Then, I asked where this Orc Town is in the Valley. Ur-Shak marked the spot on my map, but warned me not to go there, because there are so many Orcs in the Orc Town. So, If I go there, I will surely be dead. But, I told that there must be some way to get into the Orc Town.
Ur-Shak told me about the ULU-MULU, which is a holy weapon of Orcs. If I wore this ULU-MULU, then the Orcs will respect me and wont attack. He told to meet his friend in Free Mine, to get ULU-MULU. Then, Ur-Shak gave me a talisman, which is an accessory with 20 fire protection.
Then I met Xardas and told me all the story about the Sleeper and its temple. He instructed me to find the way into the temple as soon as possible.

After learning all the details from Milten and Diego, I went to New Camp to inform Lee about the raid. I used the teleport to Magicians of Water rune and went to Saturas room. But, before going there, the Free Mine had been assaulted and captured by the guards of Old Mine. Everyone in New Camp was very upset about this incident and they were planning to somehow take back the Free Mine.

I went there are informed Saturas that all the Fire Mages were killed by Gomez. He was very shocked to hear that and he told me that the only way is to get help from the Thirteenth Magician, who leaded all the other mages in the creation of barrier. His name is XARDAS. He is having a secluded life in the middle of Orc Land, studying Dark Magic. All the informers sent to meet Xardas never returned. Three powerful Golems guard the path to Xardas's Tower. To defeat them, normal weapons cant be used and special magic of the gods should be used. Saturas told me to study the books in Library to know how to defeat the Golems.

Then, for the good deeds I had performed, Saturas accepted me as a Magician of Water and gave me the Magicians Robe. Now, I am free to learn the Circle of Magic. With the few skill point I had, I learned upto second Circle of Magic. Then, I informed Gorn to meet his friends in their usual meeting place.

Then, I went into Orc Land to meet Xardas. I already killed two of the Xardas's Golam. This time I killed the fire Golem with the Ball Lightning magic scroll and entered into the Tower of Xardas. Inside the tower, I met a Fire Demon, which speaked to me through my mind. It told me that if I want to meet its master(obviously Xardas), I have to prove myself worthy, by passing a test. That Fire Golem wanted me to have victory over three Elements, Earth, Fire and Ice. I gave the heart of the three golems and it in turn gave me a Teleport rune, named Teleport to Necromancer. I used the rune and went to a room, where Xardas was there.
gothic, game, xardas, necromancer

I told Xardas about all the things that happened in the Valley, including the plan of Magician of Water. Xardas told me that the Ore Mound is not the solution and the only way to break the barrier lies deep inside the Orc Town.

Then, to speak to the Magicians of Circle of Fire, I proceeded to Old Camp. While going, I met Lee in the New Camp's Dam. He told me some big story about his past, when he was one of the best general of King Rhobar. After he finished his story, I bought Heavy Mercenary Armor from Lee and then proceeded to Old Camp.

Near the Old Camp, two bridge guards, guarding the small bridge starts to attack me. I already fought them and took their weapon. So, they hit me with their hand. I killed them and saw Milten standing outside the camp. He seemed very tensed and he says everyone is dead. Also, he is very afraid. I calmed him down and asked what happened. Here is what Milten told me:
The Old Mine caved in because of some accident down there and Gomez and his people attacked and killed every magician in Old Camp. But, Milten escaped from them and is now standing here. He itself dont have a clue of whats happening and told me to meet Diego near the other gate of the Camp.

Fletcher and some guards closed the Old Camp and is guarding that gate. I went and fought them. Apart from one guard in there, none of them have any weapon now. Because, I took all their weapons during my Old Camp raid. I killed them all and went and met Diego. After speaking to Diego only, I understood everything. What happened is:
The Old Mine caved in and Gomez became afraid that he will lose his position as the mine caved in. Becauase, Gomes the former Convict now rules the Valley, just because of his control over the Old Mine. Now, the mine itself is gone. So, Gomez planned to capture the Free Mine, which belonged to the New Camp. Corristo and the other magicians opposed this and so killed by Gomezs' people.

Diego wanted me to inform Gorn and Lester to come to the meeting point. Also, I wanted to inform Lee about the raid. But, I know that what ever I do, this raid cant be stopped. So, I was not in a hurry and happily fought Bloodwyn and the other guards at the other gate of the camp.

I am in new camp now with all the focus stones. I gave all the focus stones to Saturas. For each and every focus I gave to Saturas, I got 3500 experience. So, with the 14000 experience, I got from Saturas, I levelled up twice.

Saturas then thanked me for my great help and he continued that the Magicians in the Circle of Water are not powerful enough to control the massive amount of energies that will come out from the focus stones. So, he wanted me to convince Magicians of Fire to help them in this plan. But, the catch is they are living under Gomez and Gomez will be a ruler only until the barrier exists. So, Magicians of Fire surely wont accept this. Also, Saturas told me thats exactly why he wanted me to do the job. Also, he mentioned someone to ask for help, if everything fails. But, he refuse to give any details about that one and ordered me to win the Magicians of Fire and come. Also, he gave a rune to teleport here direclty, and told me to give it to Corristo, the highest member in the Circle of Fire.

Then, I went out and Riordian called me and gave me 20 potions, which included Health and Mana potions. Then, from Cronos, I got 1000 ore as reward.

With a big number of Potions I got from Riordian, I ventured out to get the focus stones.

I decided to get the first focus stone, which is very near the New Camp. To go there, just take the elevating path to the left of the gate of the new camp. On nearing there, you will find Milten, who is looking to get a Talisman there, which is exactly where the focus stone is. He tells a long story and conclude that there is a Undead in there which cant be defeated with normal weapons and only an Destory Undead spell will kill him. He has that spell, but he dont have guts to do it himself, so he gave me the spell scroll and ask me to help him. Then we went inside, and destroyed the Undead in there and also we fought a number of Skeletons of various type. Finally, I got the focus stone and Milten got his Talisman.

Then I went to the place where I first fought a Troll posted in "Gothic 1: Strength hit 100 and Troll Hunt", during my wild hunting sessions at the start of the game There Diego is waiting for me to help me with the Second Focus Stone. Once, when I came here the first time, I killed all the Goblins and the Troll itself. But, this time, when I am coming with Diego, the Troll is here, spawned from somewhere. I fought the Troll now, but this time I took with ease. Actually, the last time also, I took it with ease only, but I was a bit nervous. After the troll is killed, I tried activating the winch there, which opens the gate to the focus stone. But, the winch is jammed and Diego fixed it for me. Then, I opened the gate and got the second focus stone.

Very near to the troll's place, lies a mob of Rogues. They are literal Rogues and we have no mission with them. You can kill them, if you wish. But, now I just wanted to get all the focus stones, so I left this place.

Then, on my search for the third Focus Stone near the Old Ruined Monastery, I met gorn. He was also looking for something there. So, we decided to work together. There were a pack of wolves, we killed them together. Then, gorn took me to a underground path, where I found a number of Transformation scrolls. Then, we went up and there was a gate blocking the path. There were no way to open the door. There is a very small breakage at the bottom of the wall near the gate. You could say that the height of that hole is as the height of your knee. But, what I say is the height of that hole is as height of a MeatBug. If you check the transformation scrolls, you got down with Gorn, you will find that you had took some Meatbug Transformation Scrolls. You just use that scrolls, change into a Meatbug and go through the small crack in the wall. Inside is a winch, which opens the gate, thus allowing Gorn to come inside. Inside the gate also lies a pack of Snappers. With gorn's help, I took them all out. Then, I proceeded to the Tower of focus stone and took the third focus stone. Then, I came back and was surprised to see a Troll there. But, it was not a very big, hard to kill troll. It was just a Juvenile Troll. We killed it and then we got separated. Gorn went to New Camp and I went to get the fourth focus stone.

Then, I went to the mountain fort to find the fourth and final focus stone. There after crossing the bridge, guarded by Bridge Golem, I met Lester there. Together we killed all the beasts up there, which included many Harpies and some skeletons. In the fort, I found a deed which states that the fort and the surrounding territory belongs to the holder of the deed. I have no use with that and gave that to Lester. Then, I searched for the focus stone and found it in a distant platform, which cant be reached by any means. If you speak to Lester, he will tell something like a novice moves things by hands, but a master does the same with his mind. This is the clue to get the focus stone, which cant be reached by hand. You have to use Telekinesis spell and move it to the gap between that platform and where you are standing. Then, you stop the spell and it will fall down at the entrance to the fort. You go down and get it. Before leaving, inform to Lester that you got the focus and he will tell you that he would like to spend some time there, studying ancient books.

Immeditely after speaking to Lester, I used the scroll and went to the Magicians of Water.

Then, I went to New Camp. There Gorn stopped me near RiceLord's farm. He told me that he heard everything from Lester and it would be better everything goes into the ear of Saturas. He knows for sure, that definitely I wont be allowed inside to meet Saturas. So, he told me to report of Cronos.

I told everyting to Cronos and on telling him, "The Gurus have recognized that they're praying to an evil arch demon!", he told me to report to Saturas. Also, he gave me the password "TETRIANDOCH".

With the password, that Cronos gave, I went in and met Saturas. I told him all the story and gave him the Almanac and Focus Stone, which I found. He thanked me for having done such great deeds and also told me that he requirs other four focus stones to break the barrier. Then, I voluntarily said that I would bring the other focus stones. He thanked me again and told me to speak to Riordian. Then, I spoke to Riordian and gave me health and mana potions.

As mentioned in the "Gothic 1: Old Camp Raid Part 1" post, there are 2 NPC's named Arto and Scar in Gomez room who I not yet fought. So, I went inside the Castle and killed them both.

Now I am in level 21 with 128 Strength, 23 Dexterity(I remember having only 20 Dexterity, may be I should have drunk some Dexterity Potion) and 51 Mana

Chromanin Part 2 says that Chromanin 3 lies near a river which gets reunited after being separated.

Watch the river in front of the Old Camp. It gets separated by a small narrow island on the the right of the bridge, guarded by the bridge guards. Chromanin Part 3 lies in that island.

I went to Swamp Camp and met Talos there. He took me the place where that Orc Cemetry lies. But he refused to come inside. I crossed the bridge there and fought a few Biters and 3 Orcs there. Then, using the winch there, I opened the gate to the Orc Cemetry. Orc Cemetry is very dark with a number of Orc teeming inside. All the templars are found dead inside. Also, there are a number of dead mummies in the recesses of the walls. There are many number of potions found in those dead mummies.

On proceeding inside, I found Baal Lukor fighting a number of Orcs. I ran and helped him by killing those Orcs. In a room there, there are three paths. On two of the paths, I found two halves of a Orcish Spell Scroll. I gave the two halves to Baal Lukor and he told me that the Spell works only at some specific place and not at all the places. Then, we went inside the third path. Inside is a big room with 5 Orc Warriors. We killed them all and in on walking through a place near a wall, Baal Lukor told me that he feels something magical there and told me to try to use that Orcish Spell Scroll.

On using the scroll, I went to the other side of the wall and activated the winch there, which opened the wall looking gate there. Guru Baal Lukor comes inside, and says that this must be the place that the Vision showed them. We proceeded in and we found a skeleton of some dead creature. Baal Lukot thought that that was the Sleeper and I killed it. He went mad and started attacking me. So, I killed him.

Then, I went to Swamp Camp and reported to Cor Angar. He told something about the sleeper and asked me some Healing Herbs to wake up Y'Berion. I had some and gave him. He tried to heal Y'Berion, but in vein. Y'Berion was dead. Then, Cor Angar told me that Y'Berion placed all his hope upon the plan of Magicians of Water and give them the Almanac and Focus Stone.

I took the Almanac and focus stone from Car Kolem's chest, who also became mad and went with some templars to find Sleeper.

According to Chromanin 1, Chromanin Part 2 is likely to be found in the highest place in the Valley, where you will get the full view of all the places in the mine.

There is a abandoned ancient building in the Orc Land, situated at top of a big Mountain. This is a important place in the later missions, where you have to meet a Orc Shaman here. In there, there is tower at the top of which Chromanin Part 2 lies. I post here a Screenshot of the tower where Chromanin Part 2 lies.

Then I went to the nearby Moutain Fort and fought the harpies there. On the way to that fort, I fought a Bridge Golem, which is guarding the bridge to that fort. Then, I went to swamp camp to go to the Orc Cemetry.

Before going into Orc Cemetry, I planned to learn the level 1 of Two Handed Weapon Fighting Skill. So, I started a hunting session.

I remebered a underground cave full of skeletons, where I found a book named Chromanin. So, I went there. There is a tower near the wrecked ship, where there are a number of Fire Lizards. The other opening to that cave lies in the sea to the left side of Ship Wreck place. I went in there through the opening in cave opening in the sea. I fought a large number of different types of Skeletons there and found a Skeleton Mage there. I didnt fought that mage and let it to spawn more skeletons. I keep on killing the summoned skeletons and got much experience. I let the Mage to spawn skeletons for 4 times and then I got bored and killed the Skeleton Mage.

Map Location of Chromanin 1

From the mage, I got a mystical Book, named, Chromanin, which is the first book in a series of 6 Books. Each Chromanin contains a clue to get the next book. But, the clue is very difficult to solve. For the first timer, it is almost impossible to find all the 6 books. Since, this is my second time playing the game, and know well about all the places in the map. So, I think I could find all the Chromanin books without much effort. I will let you know about the next versions of Chromanin, in the up coming posts, as and when I get them. Here is the map location of the underground Cave that leads you to Chromanin 1

With the skill points I got from the hunting, I learned the Two Handed Weapon Fighting Skill from Lee.

Explanation of Clue to Chromanin 2
The Wise One(You, the Player) is to have a
general overview (an overall view of the valley)
before he dedicates himself to his next mission (before he starts to search for next Chromanin).

So, you have to get an overall view of the valley, which must obviously a highest point, likely at the center of the map. You search this point and get Chromanin 2, if you cant, then visit my next Chromanin post to see the map to that point.

Then, I went to Swamp Camp and gave 3 of the eggs to Car Kolem. He took them and gave me some 30 potions for my help. Car Kolem tells me that from these eggs a Strong Secretion can be prepared, which will help Y'Berion to make contact with the Sleeper. But he wanted a book named Almanac, to know more information. He told that he already a Novice named Talos to get that Almanac. But he failed. So, he wanted me to get that Almanac. But, I already got that Almanac during my extensive hunting in this post: Gothic 1: Extensive Hunting with Great Surprises

I gave him the Almanac and he told that everything for the Invocation of Sleeper is ready and he went to the Y'Berion's place. There, Y'Berion, Car Kolem and Cor Angar came and started the Invocation. They had a vision of many things which showed an Orc looking creature at the end. After the vision is over, Y'Berion fainted and fell down.

He told me that Guru Baal Lukor has gone to a nearyby Orc Cemetry with some templars to find Sleeper, who appeared in the vision. He wanted me to go to the Orc Cemetry and look after Baal Lukor and the templars.

I dont know what to do with the closed gate of Old Mine. So, searched for the solution in the Internet and came to know that it is a bug, which cant be bugged. But, there is technique to go into the closed gate, which is not even a a cheat. It is very simple. All you have to do is equip the pick axe and target the Ore piece in the wall inside, but close to the gate and start mining it. You will automatically go inside the gate close to that ore. Huraaayyyy!!! A game bug is solved by bad physics in the game. I should have guessed this before a week, so that I could have saved a week of bory play. But, anyway, because of this bug only, I raided Old Camp, Orc Land and levelled up several times and got so many items with me now.

I went inside the closed gate of Old Mine, using the technique described in previous post. Then, I met Ian. He told me that there is a surprisingly large number of minecrawlers inside a cave and so he closed the gate to that cave. I told him to open that gate to search for the special secretion of Minecrawler mandibles, which car kolem told me. He told me, he cant because the gearwheel to open the gate is broken.
gothic, 1, game, gearwheel, lies, here
This is the Place where you will get the Gear Wheel

So, I searched the gate and found a gearwheel near a masher. I took it to Ian and he told me that I can now open the gate by fixing the gearwheel and telling Asghan, the guardian of the gate, that "Everything's gonna be fine".This is a secret code between Ian and Asghan, which refers to the permission to open the gate by Ian.

I went to Asghan and told him the secret code. He accepted to open the gate but only under a condition. He wanted to bring 3 templars for support to manage the minecrawlers that come out, when the gate is opened. I spoke to Gor Na Vid, Gor Na Kosh and other two named templars there and they came to the gate. Then, I opened the gate and we took out all the 7 to 8 minecrawlers there. Inside the cave, there was no light. So, I used the light scroll and proceeded. Inside is a big place with few minecrawlers here and there. Then, I found a narrow path, within which a Minecrawler Queen is situated.

Minecrawler Queen was not so hard to fight. I just killed it without taking any damage. I found a few eggs of the Queen in it and also some eggs are found scattered around the Queen. I took them all and went out and proceeded to Swamp Camp.

This is relatively small map than Heartland, but it is a great map. I was playing great and by 1975, I achieved the silver goal. After a year, in January, 1976, I merged up with the other two companies and hence achieved the final Gold Goal.

Again, I tried to get into Old Mine, but I cant. So, I went into Orc Land and killed every beasts there. In my previous hunting missions itself, half of the creatures in Orc Land were dead. Now, I wiped out the remaining creatures, which includes 2 of 3 Golems of Xardas. Xardas created three Golems, which protect the path to his tower. He is studying Dark Magic and ancient books and dont want to get disturbed by anyone, thats why he created these Golems.

Golems are very powerful unique creatures which wont take damage from Normal weapons. Only powerful magic spells can defeat this creatures.

The first golem there is Stone Golem. Only the mighty Orc Hammer can do damage to this creatures. I got an Orc Hammer near the fort in the mountains, which is guarded by a Bridge Golem. With that Orc Hammer I defeated this Stone Golem and took its heart.

Next one is the Ice Golem. Taking out this one is very easy. I casted just two fire balls and this Golem was dead.

Next one is the Fire Golem. I thought this could me took out with Ice Block. I tried a few times, but, it didnt work.

I went to Old Camp and fought everyone there. It was really a great fun. First, I fought all the Diggers and Shadows and Guards in the Old Camp outside the Castle, except few like Diego, Thorus, etc., Because, they cant be hurt, whatever weapon you use. They are designed in the game itself like that. Then, I went inside the castle and fought everyone there, including all the magicians, guards and named NPC's like Raven, but cant kill those two NPC's in Gomez room. I may have fought them, but it would have required some game loads and I am not in a mood to do that. So, I let them free now, but will surely KILL them the next time. In fact, from the experience I got in the Raid, I gained 2 levels and leveled up to level 15. Now, in the Old Camp, 95% of the people wont be having their weapon and all their Inventories were emptied by me.
