|“||Better to be on quest. Learn how to hero. Save world.||”|
The game provides you with a Quest Journal which has four sections: All Quests, Active Quests, Failed Quests, and Completed Quests. The journal mostly resets itself each time that you end a chapter, including the Prologue, but a few overarching quests persist in Completed Quests.
Each quest journal page is rated by a number of symbols in the top right corner that look kind of like sword blades (called "sticks" on this page for lack of a better term). They go from 1 to 5 "sticks", and seem to indicate the immediacy of the objective - 1 stick is things you can do more or less right away, while 5 sticks is mostly reserved for plot arcs that last the majority of their chapter. This rating is not totally consistent, but it's not something to worry about anyway.
Note that the Journal mostly includes quests related to the plot, not every possible task that can be completed - some are too trivial to be included, others are optional "secrets" for thorough players.
Defeat the KingEdit
Attempt to defeat the Incubus King (1 stick)
See the detailed walkthrough.
Recover Your PowerEdit
Re-gather everything that was stolen (3 sticks)
There is no actual Crystal of Ivala.
Gather an ArmyEdit
Recruit soldiers to fight for you (3 sticks)
Build a HaremEdit
Select the finest women from all the realms (3 sticks)
Incubus King RematchEdit
Take revenge and claim your destiny (5 sticks)
Reevaluate life (5 sticks). This quest is part of the main plot (it gets more objectives as you advance the game) and cannot be completed before the end of this chapter.
Let Tal collect mushrooms (in reality you can collect more mushrooms after Tal's demise).
There are two tiers to this quest:
- The first stage garners you a pair of Gloves and 500 Sx.
- Mushroom Locations:
- Northeast from the start (kill everything in your path).
- Slightly above the bridge (near the ambush site).
- Near the cave entrance.
- The second stage garners you a Silk Whip and 500 Sx. You can complete this stage only after you kill the Chosen One. Some enemies will also respawn, so kill them for extra XP and Sx.
- Mushroom Locations:
- Where you wake up after the explosion (return during the day).
- Above and to the right of the cave exit.
- One screen over from the main camp, just below the log (wasn't there before).
Fulfill obligations with the Church of Ivala (1 stick).
Make Simon an Incubus KingEdit
He knows he wants to (2 sticks).
To convince Simon, you have to:
- Talk with the old woman near the recent graves.
- Talk with the soldier patrolling inside the church.
After that interact with other characters to get a feel of how the things are (in a word: badly).
Finally, go talk with Simon again.
Gain Economic PowerEdit
Earn a foothold in the merchant world (3 sticks).
Very straightforward quest where you only have to follow the plot. During the Find a viable partner section, you have the option to gain or lose some Relationship Points.
Fulfill Megail's conditions (2 sticks).
Help Aka create a custom knife (2 sticks).
The first step is buying the raw material (ore) from a distributor.
- You can buy the ore in the Armor shop for 750 Sx.
- You can buy the ore in the potions shop for 1500 Sx (curiously you can't get it from the blacksmith's son).
You then have to forge it in the weapons shop. Talk with the blacksmith, who will ask for 500 Sx as payment.
Finally, you have to enchant it. You can make a choice here too:
- The magic shop (the enchantment costs 1500 Sx).
- The Academy (the enchantment costs 2000 Sx).
- The Jewelry store (the enchantment costs 2500 Sx)
The Stineford MineEdit
Help Hilstara purify the mine (2 sticks).
Once you arrive near the barrier, you can't carry on until you complete Simon's Daughter quest. See Robin's page if you have any trouble acquiring it.
Once you have Robin in your party, she will lift the barrier.
Defeat the rest of the normal enemies and the boss to conclude the quest. Hilstara will accompany your party till you leave Stineford. Don't worry, you'll be able to acquire her permanently later.
Spend time with Robin (2 sticks).
You get 5000 PRoN (and a speech & sanctimonious sermon from some administrative guy).
Finish Robin's potion license (1 sticks).
You have to gather 4 ingredients: Mana Shrooms, Thaumaturgic Mold, Pailing Leaves and Sarxite substitutive.
- The Mana Shrooms are to the left of the pond.
- The Paling Leaves can be found (after a fight) in the north-eastern section.
- The Thaumaturgic Mold can be found in the Succubi Tower (talk to the Succubus cleaning the mold in the dormitory).
- The Sarxite substitute (Corrupted Webbing) can be found in the infested house in the Slums (interact with the shining table).
Return to Robin's room and chat with her to proceed to the concoction. The only remaining choice is if you want to sell the potions (you get 5000 PRoN) or you keep them (you get 12 potions of various types). In the long run, the former is probably the best choice. (Note: all of the potions are easily available ones like health, mana, etc; you're not missing anything special by selling them)
Yarra's Request Edit
Something is wrong in Stineford (1 sticks).
To start this quest, you have to check the sewer entrance in the Slums. Yarra will ask you for time to reflect. Talk to her in in your room after you have slept there. Check the sewer again and you will have access to an underground dungeon. Among other things, you'll find a Shining Sword (a collectible item) and a Mage Pin there. Some of the enemies (the Murkles for instance) have an Attack that Silences your party members (both the Mage Pin and the Slave Pin grant immunity to that state).
Interact with all the Succubi to get your rewards: allies, Relationship Points to both Yarra (10) and Qum (5), access to various specialized stores and 2500 PRoN.
Slavery in StinefordEdit
Assist Carina in fighting slavery (1 stick).
Go to the warehouse in the Slums (the building with the wooden door). Take care of all the thugs and their boss. Note: Be sure to grab most of the items off the walls since you can sell them for gold(Sx).
Talk to Carina to get your reward: 2500 PRoN & relationship points with her.
Help Orcent find a partner (1 stick).
You first find Orcent and his band when you first arrive to the Stineford region. They have been used by some unscrupulous humans as a front to commit atrocities and go unpunished. After you punish the true culprits, talk to him to get a new ally (and a small army). In a subsequent visit you can dominate two groups of orcs or kill them.
Talk to the mobile maid (Lucy) in The Gilded Lilly. She lives in sexual slavery and is willing to do anything to escape. Talk to her again and visit Orcent at the farm. You receive 5000 PRoN (after a conversion) for your efforts (hah!).
I wish that they will live happily ever after but this is Sierra's world so we will have to wait and see.
Journey to YhilinEdit
Reach Yhilin and continue work (3 sticks).
Pretty straightforward. See the walkthrough for more details and info.
Stop Ivastan's PlanEdit
Stop the plan before it's too late (3 sticks).
I'm doing a very detailed description here of all the necessary steps, because I had played various times and did not always remember where I had to go next. My suggestion is that you only check this section if your lose your way.
After the conversations with Megail and her employee, follow Simon's suggestion and start looking for clues in the outskirts. There is a distinguished gentleman who seems to have more than a few issues with Reval, which gives you some information regarding Reval's new personnel. Talk with the head of the various mercenary groups: the Dusty Horde, the AriGarda  and the Iron Cudgel. After this last conversation, Simon concludes that the next step is to interrogate a smuggler..
You can find him in the Merchant's Quarter (natural place for a smuggler) and once more Yarra's seductive skills save the day. After a little Succubus action, he spills the beans:
|“||Ivastan sold all the slave collars to a known fence who works for a variety of Yhilini factions.||”|
The next place to visit is the Miners' Junction, where you find a disenchanted former guard of Reval's. He tells you that Reval has new friends in high places, but he didn't have access to any sensible info. Fortunately, he points you to the next piece of the puzzle: Hank, a drunkard that used to keep an eye on Reval's ladies.
He can be found lying on the ground in the Outskirts and he is not in a cooperative mode. It really doesn't matter to Hilstara. After a friendly chat, he confirms that Reval's new allies are nobles of an unknown faction that opposes the Queen.
As Simon has no access to the Queen, he decides to visit an old friend who might be able to give him further insight into the matter: the High Priestess Sarai. So you should know where to go next. Pay real attention to the following conversation because it's brilliant (and hilarious). The most relevant part is the warning about a dangerous mage.
Now, if you are a dangerous amoral mage involved in a plot against the Crown, against whom would you go? If you are thinking the soldiers, you're right. Now, where do the soldiers go when they are off-duty? To the Pub in the Court sector, because that fine establishment is reserved for their exclusive use. Hidden, you observe impotent the events and learn various things. First, the target's name is Trin. More pertinent to the quest, she can (and has) created duplicates of the guards. The clock is ticking now! You have to locate her ASAP.
You check in the Miners' Juction: zero. In the Cathedral: zero. Nothing in the Merchant Quarter either. What about the Outskirts? Bingo! After a very revealing conversation, slightly uncomfortable for the party, she gives you the final piece: the map with the secret hidden entrance to the palace.
If you want to make any kind of purchase, now is the moment to do so. When you're prepared, talk to the wagon driver to proceed with the dungeon part.
About the dungeon part, check the Scion Boss' page if you have any troubles with him. The rest shouldn't cause any kind of trouble.
Locate family figurines (1 stick).
You get this quest by talking with a noble located below the pub in the Court. She asks for your help in locating some lost heirlooms. You will find them during Megail's rescue.
Your reward consists of up to 3000sx and the acknowledgment of a beautiful damsel. Who can ask for more? There is a chest with up to three figurines inside, one disappears each time you're spotted by the Unmen and Unwomen. The maze itself requires patience and a little bit of planning, but it's not overly difficult.
Deal with Megail's problems (2 sticks).
The meeting with Reval is pretty straightforward. You simply have to follow the events and react to them. See the Secrets page for more details.
Finding Megail is a bit trickier. First, be a man and confront Janine (and others) about your mistake with Megail. After that, go to your room and you will have a chat with Riala. She will tell you that she has located Megail but she needs divine help to move you there. As you have to cross the Court to got the Cathedral, now is a good time to talk with the noble from the above quest. Meet Sarai at the Cathedral and have a heart to heart with her. After you have completed this step, talk to Riala outside your room and you will be teleported to the house.
See the relevant part of the walkthrough for a guide to the dungeon and its enemies.
See the relevant part of the walkthrough.
Goods have been lost in the gorge of Rebel's Pass (1 stick).
Pretty straightforward. Talk to the red-haired guy at the Pub in the Noble District of Stineford to start it. Go to the Rebel's Pass, recover the goods and talk to the guy again. Reward: 5000 Sx and 5 days in time travel.
Stop the orc horde from attacking the Watchtowers (3 sticks).
As the captain of the guard of the Feroholm says:
|“||Is it just me, or has the Incubus King been oddly quiet lately?||”|
Prophetic words indeed. Just when the people were hoping for a long period of rest and training (and adapting to the presence of both Altina and Varia), the
Lunatic Maniac Incubus King has important strategical considerations to invade Ardoheim.
Sadly, he has at least one competent subordinate, Iris, that already has a plan to proceed. As a consolation, Riala has the time to warn you to prepare and gather your forces to defeat it's vanguard (which is small but fast).
More bad news. To avoid dooming Simon's long-term plans by attracting attention, he can't try to get control of the opposing forces. That only leaves the old fashioned way. Fortunately, Riala can help with the gathering of all your forces (including your mercenaries, if you invested in them).
But the omens are not good.
See the relevant part of the walkthrough to learn more about the preparations and the scouting necessary.
Once you are done with the scouting, you will find an Armor (similar to the one that you can find in the Optional Dungeon?), that could amplify your power. But a better approach seems to be using it for the Doomed King plan. Even more importantly:
|“||With someone to manage the armor, you could hide your essence inside.[...]||”|
That task falls on the young shoulders of Robin.
Meanwhile, Iris has another trick in her sleeve: a seed of corruption. Carina, overconfident in her own abilities and power, decides to tackle it on. Simon tries to stop her, but he can't.
After Carina joins the party, you can touch base with your girls. Rest and talk with Riala when you're ready.
In function on how many forces you have collected, you will get more or less rewards.
Find Varia and acquire her explosives (3 sticks).
See the section West Delgar Forest for a detailed walkthrough.
Reevaluate life (5 sticks).
Go to Aram and consolidate resources (3 sticks).
See the section Megail's Path for a detailed walkthrough.
Moonlight as a bounty hunter (1 stick).
Check this section for a detailed walkthrough. You should bear in mind that you can't complete all the goals of this quest with either version of Varia.
Find any way to improve Aka's health (2 sticks).
In function on how much of this quest you had of Aka's condition drains between 5-20% of her health per round. So it's in your best interests to complete this quest as soon as you can.
To start this quest talk with Robin (follow the secret passage from the throne room and you will find her and the big armor in a room nearby), she will suggest that you speak with Yarra. Speak with her, check the Palace's library (see the Secrets page for more details) and then talk with Robin again.
Gain access to the House Rose library and after you have found the right book, return to the palace and talk to Robin in her room. After the sex scene (despite appearances you aren't cured yet), you have to consult a religious library (go visit Sarai at the Cathedral). After that, return to Robin's room, interact twice with Robin (first for a sex scene, second to perform the ritual) to complete this quest. Both Robin and Altina will have their Mana reserves depleted after that, so you should rest.
Prepare Yhilin for invasion (3 sticks).
Neutralize House Jade:
Talk with Megail in the Outskirts early, as she leaves once you make much progress on any quest. Getting her insight on how to attack and weaken this House lets you copy a Jade head scribe.
Visit the Clearinghouse to pick your objectives. The number of targets that you can copy will vary by the level of Trin's affection and whether you already used a slot copying the bank clerk.
Assist the poorest section of the city: Talk twice with the (elected!) Elder of the Elves in the Lower City. If Simon never fucked Altina she will leave the party forever and so you should save this quest for last! If your Altina is a cockwhore, talk with the barman at the Kingsmen's bar in the west. If she's not, talk with the barman at the Queensmen's bar in the east, which has the same banner that decorates the Queen's rooms. If you haven't got Altina in your party, you can't do anything in either location. It's necessary to talk with the Elder again to mark this section as completed.
Investigate House Rose: pretty straightforward and without any difficulties. It gives you access to their library (you need it for Aka's condition quest and for one of the exams in the Order's trials). Also, you can find the halfling working for House Jade (you can copy or convince her to collaborate when the Doomed King's plan explodes).
Infiltrate the Order of Yhilini Thaumaturgy: to infiltrate their ranks you have to pass three different sets of trials. MDF is useful here.
- The first one consists of three battles against magical creatures. The only one that can damage you is the Fire Ward... use ice spells. (Also if for some reason you have a ton of money you can get a Fire Charm in the magical shop near the Rose House).
- The second one consists of four theoretical exams. The bottom left is a general magic knowledge exam that Robin aces. The top right (a specialized one) can be solved by Trin. The top left is about a very obscure subject, so you need to do some research in a library. Visit the Rose House and check the spotted shelves, and Robin will have no trouble. Now if you want to make a good impression, you can solve the last one, bear in mind that you need to rest before doing it. Go to the Alchemy shop in the Square, request materials (1100 Sx), and take it with Robin (potions license boosts score but isn't strictly necessary for the best reward).
- The third one is another series of battles, but they are tougher. Try to essay different tactics until you beat them.
Once you've completed the three trials you get the Order Membership Key item.
Resolve House Adamant's problems: check the relevant part of the walkthrough to learn how to clean the mines and choose your side.
Survive the meeting of Incubus Kings (3 sticks).
The first two parts: Participate in all the events and Investigate rivals only require that you follow the plot and use the free time to try to access the rooms of the other Incubi Kings.
Find a potential member:
Similar to the situation with Reval and Megail back at the Merchant Camp, the game simulates that you had two candidates (Ginasta or Balia), but in reality you can only convince the latter to join the harem.
Demands of the EmpressEdit
Serve the Empress' interests at the Gathering (2 sticks).
Begin trade negotiations with Queen Fheliel:
Pretty straightforward. Just visit her suite on a free evening and talk with her, reassure her about your intentions (ha!) and fulfill your end of the bargain .
Convince as many succubi to vote as possible:
Simple, you have to gain access to the Pan Succubi Council by doing the event Succubus Hunt on the fifth day.
Convince the organized orcs to vote:
Just try to join the orc's meeting twice. The first time Orcent hesitates, so on the second try Yarra takes the matter (and other things) in her own hands.
Slave of the EmpressEdit
Be more than just a slave (2 sticks).
Look for advantages and influence the Empress
Try to balance Simon's development with charming the Empress. Try to talk to her and Chaya often and in general try to do useful things and avoid less relevant options like helping in the kitchen, using the baths or losing five days exploring the clearing. I don't think that you can fail this section, but one never knows.
Train Nalili in discipline
These one is easier. Just try to do as many actions as you can of those described here and you should be able to complete it by the end of the path.
Improve the Palace's stagnacy
You have to complete the eight office tasks with good results AND you had to be quick during the free-roaming section at the start of the chapter. You know that you completed this goal, if after you have finished all the tasks, you're invited to an orgy when you speak with the Office Supervisor in the 2nd floor. If you don't get the invitation, maybe it's time for another playthrough in the next version, but it doesn't hurt you so badly if you don't want to replay either.
Get ready for the conference in Ardoheim (3 sticks).
Speak with Megail about finances
Pretty straightforward. In function of how well you accomplished the goals in Simon's path, you will have the opportunity or not to give Megail a copy of the Orgasmic Empire's record finances. For the rest, you should have learned by now to follow her lead in business matters (or not of course).
Meet Balia to discuss orcs
Just an quasi-normal job interview. Both Stark and the Impaler are mentioned (Stark even has some lines), but very little else is learn about the orc breeding program.
Introduce Nalili to the harem
Just enjoy the cutscenes that triggers by approaching most sprites. Some are really funny.
Talk with Sarai in the Cathedral
When you arrive to the Outskirts, pay attention to Hilstara's warning. Talk with the three mercs and hire/influence by your own criteria. In function of your past choices there will be different options open to you. As you don't have access to the Square area, you choices about Equipment are reduced to the Premium Steel shop for purchases and the shops in the Outskirts for sales. For investments, check all the areas available to you and later have the reunion with Sarai.
Once you're finished, return to the retreat and check the new scenes (depending of your RPs choices) that your return unlocks.
Balance different tasks while attending the summit in Ardford (4 sticks).
Too general for this section (and version). Just a placeholder for now ;-) :-P.
Manipulate the summit in your favor (3 sticks). There is a detailed page that describes profusely the working and its variations there. So go there and check it out.
Meet Vhala and investigate Unpeople in Ardford (3 sticks).
You will find Vhala in the Military District. The Order should have their own headquarters, but since the people as a whole don't like the Unpeople that much, they are hidden in a building with other Orders. Your visit will be brief and useless, but your behavior will be noted.
When you choose to end the day, she will intrude in your room, with a spell ready to launch her forces against you. After a very tense exchange of words, the crisis is averted or at least is postponed.
The potentially lethal action concludes with the compromise of Simon to help her with something impossible for an Unwoman.
After the second day of the Summit, speak with Vhala again and accept her request concerning The Hole's breakout of a prisoner, called Dari.
Once you're back from the Hole, you need to advance to the next day's summit meeting before you can continue investigations. After the second day's votes, you can speak with Vhala again. Now she'll give you the actual investigation quest.
There are three leads she spells out for you to follow: Merchant Guild (young woman by the door who gives newbies advice), Aramite (woman at the embassy), and the Royal Retreat (speak with the chamberlain at the big table). Once you have these three, the option Look for New Leads is all that remains.
- Examine the deteriorated unperson in the Hole.
- High Priestess Hester in the palace. (Need to have talked to her before Vote 2, so she mentions other factions trying to horn in on making Unpeople).
- Tyna in the palace library.
- Inquisitor in Cathedral.
- Inquisitor in Holy Knights of Ardford. (Only if you've researched secrecy spells).
- Merchant guild bartender. (Ask for records if you are a member of the guild).
Once you have checked the three leads (Royal Retreat, Merchant Guild, Aramite Embassy), accompany Vhala to her headquarters a new step appears: Investigate the Unforge. You will need to wait until the summit voting is completely over before Vhala will take you to this dungeon. Completing this dungeon will allow the Royal Retreat trial that should end Chapter 2.
Givini in ArdoheimEdit
Improve the lives of Givini refugees (1 sticks).
You get this quest by talking with the Givini representative in the embassies building. He is not very kind, but he has very few motives to be. After a brief chat with him, you receive the errand of helping some poor refugees to clean the basement of their humble home. You will find the building in the south part of the Merchant District. It has a light signal on its roof, if you have troubles locating it. Although the attic is free of monsters, you find a Magical Rift there. The monsters in the first floor deal more damage that random monsters in previous parts of the game. The second floor is too difficult to describe...
Dialogue between Aka and Simon:
|“|| Are you fucking serious? That's it?|
Well, spiders like that are dangerous for normal people.
Once you have cleared the two basement floors, speak with the Givini in the attic and you will learn about the former owner of the warehouse. Talk with the Givini merchant in the Guild Merchant building. Return to the ware house and take the broken mirror, return to the Guild Merchant and talk with the Givini merchant again. You'll get a really nice Givini Pin (duh!). Talk with the ambassador (and pay attention to Qum's cute observations). If you have get the mirror to the Givini merchant, the words will be slightly kinder, but the result will be the same.
The Knights of SxEdit
Assist the city Sx's defenses. (1 sticks).
In your visit to the Guard quarters you will have the opportunity to learn more about how the Sx is used to defend cities. It seems that various groups have forgotten that the city's defenses needs Sx, not ProN. So the sergeant request you to distribute three letters to three institutions:
- Merchant's Guild: of the four people behind the counters, your guy is the old one (bottom left).
- The Church: in Ivala's Bank, the guy in the right counter.
- King's administration: the Tax Collector in the room below the library.
Once you have delivered all the letters, you can speak with the sergeant again. He will request your help again but this time is to clean up a mini dungeon. In general you shouldn't have any trouble, but it's worth to mention that the top static monster is a Boss one.
You get 5000 Sx for your efforts.
Scour Ardford for rifts in magical fields. (1 sticks)
Sister Beatrice in the Ardford cathedral asks Robin to smooth out some weird distortions in the magical field that can be found all over the city. By that time you have probably encountered some of them, but Robin doesn't want to interfere until the Sister requests your help. To close a rift, simply interact with it, but be careful - in some cases this triggers a fight with demons. There are nine rifts: Be warned that you will fight demons after dealing with a certain number of rifts. Losing any of these fights WILL cause a Game Over, so don't get caught off guard. Said fights occur at 2 rifts (2 Rough + 1 Spiked Demon), 7 rifts (2 Spiked + 1 Rough Demons), and 9 rifts (2 Spiked + 2 Rough + 1 Fluid Demon)
- In the Royal District, immediately after the entrance to the Religious District, head south through the first alley and turn left. Just below the very first building is a partially obscured rift.
- In the Business District, above the street at the bottom of the map, in between a closed shop and a child who wants more horsies, is another rift partially obscured by a building's covered balcony.
- In the Military District, immediately south of the entrance in an alley is an exposed rift.
- In the Naval Office, on the East side of the Business District, is a very obvious rift on the left side of the room.
- In the Givini Poorhouse, in the Southeast Corner of the Business District (Only accessible after talking to the Givini Embassy), on the second floor is another obvious rift in the bottom right corner.
- In the Ardford Castle Garden, the central room above the Summit meeting place, is another obvious rift just right of the pond in the middle.
- In the Ardford Walls Foundation, accessible from the guard tower on the East end of the Military district (Talking to the guard the first time will give you a quest to serve some tax papers, after completing it, he will then ask you to clear out this area of monsters and take you here), at the very end of the hallway, in the topleft corner, is the rift we want.
- In the Order of Holy Knights, the first building in the Religious District, guarded by a masked inquisitor, accessible only once Vhala is in your party to help you with the Unforge investigations, is a rift near the top right staircase.
- In the Ardford Royal Retreat, the Northeast building in the Religious District, guarded by a knight, again only accessible during your investigations, is a rift at the end of the hallway on the left.
That means that it becomes impossible to complete the quest if you forget to close the last two rifts before concluding your business with Vhala.
The entry in the Quest menu has a counter ("Disturbances smoothed: ") that allows you to check your progress.
Robin doesn't think that it's a priority for the group's goals (in any case, it adds hidden Ardoheim/Religion stats), but the truth is that it gives us a nice optional boss. No special rewards from Sister Beatrice, but you have done the Right ThingTM.
Investigate a noble infidelity claim. (1 sticks).
Just pretty straightforward. Read the central flier in the Silver Stump's billboard, talk with the bartender, visit the location when you want and check first the left building and later the right one. Once you have completed the request, talk with the bartender for your reward: 3000 Sx.
Linked to the next quest. Nothing special to do here.
Work on the many tasks involving running a country (3 sticks)
Decide policy with the ambassador
Just summon the Ambassador in the throne room (interact with the blinking light in the throne). That also unlocks the next quest.
Get official sanction from the Empress
That is done very late in the game. You just have to interact with the purple orb in your room.
Stabilize the economy with Megail
This section is marked as done after you have finished the Economy Recovery quest.
Rebuild army with Balia
Talk with Balia in her room in the Suspicious Tunnels to unlock her quest and complete it.
Bring the ambassador on board (2 sticks)
Start by summoning your old acquaintance, the ambassador sent to the Ardford Summit, in the throne room. After you finish the conversation with him, talk with Megail again and summon the Noble Liaison.
After you have distributed some funds in the house of Petitions, you can choose if you want to increase your control over the nobility, by destining a part of the kingdom budget to that end. Just talk with the Liaison to do that.
Work with Megail to establish control of the economy (2 sticks)
You shouldn't forget to visit the House of Petitions to fund a few projects, as Megail suggests/orders.
Finish off House Jade
Go with Megail to the House Jade clearinghouse and talk with everyone there. Once you had done that, you can take the mercenaries and the Jade Ward: not specially complex, but if you're having any troubles, it's weak against Ice so Robin & Altina help a lot.
Find a succubus trader
You will find her in the Slums.
Discuss personal business with Megail
This one unlocks itself automatically once you have finished with House Jade.
Assist Balia in rebuilding and improving the army. (2 sticks)
Set up a breeding chamber
Once you have unlocked this quest by talking with Balia, don't forget to talk with Yarra about the breeding chamber.
Find at least three seed orcs
You only need three but you can find as much as six:
- Orc doing laundry in the Palace: in the room where the secret tunnel exit used to be.
- Left guard orc in the Palace's antechamber.
- Orc in the Jade House's clearinghouse (he is alone).
- Orc in the outskirts, in front of the closed shops.
- Orc in the Miner's Junction (not the guard).
- Orc in the Slums (on the roof of a building).
Design a new orc prototype
When you return to Balia after you've collected the seed orcs, she will report the current characteristics of your orc prototype. To learn the best possible outcome, ideal setup and many more details, check the Orc breeding page.
Matters of FaithEdit
Assist Sarai with religious matters (2 sticks)
Pretty straightforward. Sarai requests that you locate the leaders of three other religions. You can find them:
- The Lustlord representative is at the Miner's Junction.
- The Mother representative is in the Slums.
- The Goddess of Magic cult is operating more openly in the Slums. To ensure their cooperation, you need to fight off a few waves of summoned demons, with an optional last wave of extra-strong demons.
Decide research and resolve magical problems alongside Robin (2 sticks)
Choose which of the two research topics still available you want to do next. The trials unlocked to you are theoretical in nature so there is no difficult fights for now.
Find Rick's parents or relatives (2 sticks)
It's unlocked by talking with the lonely child outside of the Cathedral.
Aka convinces Simon to look for his relatives. Whether you find them depends on the effects of the battle on Yhilin:
- The dad is inside the Archon Inn in the Merchant Quarter (unless the population has been devastated).
- The mum is walking around aimlessly in the Slums (unless the slum shops have been destroyed).
- The uncle can be found in the Square (only if the mother and/or father are dead, and the Square has not been closed).
Help Yarra find succubi and humans who might be interested in each other. (2 sticks)
Talk with Yarra in the Palace to unlock this quest. It's active through the next several sections of the plot. As of version 0.27, it still has no definitive conclusion and it can not be marked as completed in the journal, though you get a present at the end of Govern Yhilin IV. All possible recruits so far:
- In Ari-Yhilina, after the invasion:
- Succubus in the Palace's kitchen.
- Doubtful Succubus in the Court.
- Old woman ogling the succubi in the Slums.
- Black-haired Succubus in House Rose area.
- Guard on the right side at the gates of Ari-Yhilina (Outskirts)
- Blue haired woman in the Merchant Quarter.
- In the elf kingdoms, during Purifying the River: After Yarra tries (and fails) to recruit three people - a random woman in Theltiar, the woman involved in the murder investigation, a man in Denmiel's bar - a volunteer will appear outside the HQ of your chosen elf ally.
- In Ari-Yhilina, during Chapter 3, between expeditions to other kingdoms:
- The head of House Thelon, near the exit of the palace, only if Qum saved him.
- Flirtatious mage at entrance of the Order of Thaumaturgy, after Palace-Order relations are normalized.
- Funding the succubus brothel pettition.
- Noblewoman in Yhilini Bank seeking a succubus for an orgy, once Acceptance is 15 or higher.
- If Nia was saved from Andrew, talk to Kia once Acceptance is 40 or higher.
- In Ari-Yhilina, after Zirantia:
- In the Square, a young man volunteers after Yarra's lecture if Acceptance is 40 or higher at the start of the section.
- In Ari-Yhilina, after meeting the refugee succubi from the Incubus Emperor's Domain:
- If Simon stopped the orgy at Withered Mountain, enter the royal bedchamber to try to cure the women.
At the end of the final stay in Yhilin, Yarra will receive a present from a couple of fans. The reward depends on the number of volunteers recruited so far:
- If you get all (14), you get a Sexual Pin and a Succubus Pin;
- for 13 or more, just the Succubus Pin;
- for 10 or more, just the Sexual Pin;
- for 7 or more, an Elegant Dress;
- for 4 or more, a Slinky Dress.
It's likely that this will not be the only consequence of the quest, though.
Save the Queens Edit
Find a way to cure both queens (3 sticks)
This is the main plot quest for this part of the game.
At the entrance to Darghelon, just approach the gate, then talk to the elven diplomat when you are ready to enter.
You will be brought to the Gryndine River, where you get to ask around before meeting the queens. It pays off to be thorough, so just try talking to everyone. :) After that, just approach the central platform to meet the queens.
A short cutscene shows Lynine and Orilise arguing on a bridge. After that, you'll have to talk to each of them (Lynine is in the north on the west side, Orilise - in the south on the east side) and then choose which one of them should help you break the spell. Before doing that though you may want to start the Healing Butterfly quest.
Whatever your choice is, you are then transported to the Twisted Glen. Sparkles mark the ingredients necessary for the spell and other valuable stuff. Some captured succubi are held behind purity wards in the center of the map. In the south-western corner you will find Iris and other succubi hiding under an illusion. She asks you to rescue the prisoners.
- If you've chosen Orilise, just talk to their guard (again).
- If you've chosen Lynine, he will refuse to let them go. Talk to his commander (the only other elf on the map).
Return to Iris. The succubi are exhausted and need replenishment (read: an orgy). After they leave, you'll find some more ingredients in their camp.
Once you have enough ingredients, you can leave the map and return to the river. Talk to whoever showed you the glen and they'll give you a reward - a Sylvan Gauntlet (Lynine) or a Sylvan Glove (Orilise). This will also trigger the cutscene that ends the quest.
Healing Butterfly Edit
Assist a woman making a potion for her sick brother. (1 stick)
This quest is available only during the Save the Queens quest. It's triggered by talking to an elf woman directly west of the queens' platform who appears after you've talked to the queens. You need to find a key ingredient for the potion, a blue-winged butterfly.
The butterfly can be found in the Twisted Glen, in the south-western corner of Iris' camp. You can deliver it to her before saving the queens, or afterward in Theltiar. The reward is +2 Aka affection.
Purifying the River Edit
Find the focal points to cast the spell. (3 sticks)
Part of the main quest; see the walkthrough.
Murder Investigation Edit
Determine the motive of the murder. (1 stick)
This quest happens in Theltiar. On the northern isle you can find a Mother's Guard trying to question an elven child. At first you can't get any answer from him, but once you get an alliance with Lynine or Orilise he will talk and let you help.
You will have to talk with two elves: a man on the same isle where Lynine's house is and woman near the one who wanted the butterfly. Once it is done, go back to the guard, then speak with the child - a certain level of Aka's Storgan proficiency is required. Once it's done, Guard joins conversation. He will give you a Sylvan Cloak.
That ends the quest, but you should speak with the elven woman again; it is a step to get a volunteer for Forging Ties.
Mother's Guard Ruse Edit
Deceive the Guards in the Twisted Glen. (1 stick)
This quest is only available with Altina in the harem. Raise Aka's Storgan skill as high as possible, then speak to the Guards. For best rewards, do this before doing all three focal points of Purifying the River.
The Potion Hermit Edit
Trade with the Potion Hermit... exactly once. (1 stick)
Once you get an alliance with Lynine or Orilise, you can visit the Potion Hermit's glade in the southern elven forests. Bring her as much Kingsfail as possible (8 maximum). As a part of the same deal, the hermit also provides the material needed for Altina's custom wand in exchange for a special ingredient you need to buy in advance (Crystal Petals from Theltiar if Altina is restored, Emerald Leaves from Denmiel if she is brainwashed).
Govern Yhilin II Edit
Continue working on the many tasks involved in running a country. (3 sticks)
Just check the relevant part of the walkthrough.
Yhilini Diplomacy Edit
Improve relations between Yhilin and other nations. (2 sticks)
All of this is done by interacting with the magic orb in the royal bedroom. The only point that requires a decision is how to conduct negotiations with Eustrin - via diplomats, a letter, or a face-to-face conversation over a magical link. The consequences of each option are yet unknown.
Applied Theology Edit
Search for answers regarding the nature of reality. (1 stick)
After being confronted by the Mother, Simon decides to seek the thoughts of other people about the incident and the nature of divinity. Besides Sarai (only after Andra is dealt with), the possible conversation partners are:
- Bertricia, in Ivala's Glade after the Forest of the First Root (so before returning to Yhilin and this quest being revealed in the Journal).
- Carina, on her relationship with Ivala.
- Yarra, about the Lustlord.
- Robin, in the Royal Chambers library after her cutscene with Orilise.
- Discuss the Goddess of Magic with the leader of her cult in their usual place.
- Ginasta, automatically after ending the section if you spoke to the Goddess of Magic cult leader.
Note that while the quest may be marked complete with only a few of these, each conversation has a separate reward, immediately or later.
Southern Team Edit
Complete objectives with the team staying in the capital. (1 stick)
Northern Team Edit
Complete objectives with the team searching for Wynn. (1 stick)
These two plot quests are described in the main Walkthrough.
Heat Potions Edit
Find out who induced heat in Fuani. (1 stick)
It's pretty straightforward, you just follow the steps marked in the Journal Quest. It helps to get a better picture of the Zirantian society. The most relevant part is the meeting with Yuanuon in the unnamed Slum's bar.
Govern Yhilin III Edit
Continue working on the many tasks involved in running a country, then return to Janine. (3 sticks)
Just check the relevant part of the walkthrough.
Trade Negotiations Edit
Assist the trade negotiations between Yhilin, Ghenalon, and the Orgasmic Empire. (2 sticks)
After Janine's introduction talk with both the Ambassador and Trin. Then, you can start by solving the third point first, as it offers no issues at all. Just talk with the succubi at their table.
In the meeting with Queen Fhefiel you will receive an assessment of the suitability of the four sites: "The Western and Southern are superior locations in general." This is true in a sense, because picking either gives a slight economic boost for Yhilin.
However, the Southern site will decrease acceptance of your rule, especially if you copy the woman at the bank. And the Western site belongs to House Rose, so seizing it hurts your allies, and will nullify the "consolation prize" deal with them. Meanwhile, negotiations are much easier with the Eastern site, and the Northern site will increase your power over the nobility if that's still a concern for you (check with your liaison in the palace).
You can also leave the hall at any time just by the southern exit, and you'll probably want to. As Western site is owned by House Rose, it's good to visit their leader. This will result in a "consolation prize" deal for them to shift to providing services to whichever site is chosen, unless you seize the Western site, in which case the deal is off!
If you'll choose the Southern Site, you should copy the partner financing the loan (she can be found in the bank) to get the best possible deal. If you'll choose the Eastern Site, you have the same option with a guy selling weapons in the Outskirts. In both cases, there's no point unless you're planning to use that site.
Other options for copying may include a House Jade representative if you sided with them in the Aka's route mine quest (a good target), a young man vitally opposed to the deal, and an old guy (decreases acceptance if copied).
The meeting with Esthera gives you the opportunity to help her by using Trin's abilities, though this does not affect negotiations.
When you're done investigating the various possibilities, talk to Janine to choose a site and the quest will end without any further decisions. There are various results. In the best one Janine says:
|“||[...]everyone was quite impressed[...]||”|
And you'll get various affection bonuses, plus bonuses to the economies of all three nations.
Eustrin Alliance Edit
Help Queen Neranda to make an alliance with Eustrin possible. (3 sticks)
This is the main quest of the first part of Eustrin and Aram arc. The suggested order is: Ivalan Representative, Southern Tunnels, Maranite Negotiations and Aramite commander, but in any case it's strongly advised to do the Ivalan Representative before visiting the Aramite Fort.
Negotiate with the local Aramite commander
Bear in mind that Mestan has a role in this part, so it's imperative (Palina doesn't arrive otherwise) that you complete the next section before you visit the Fort.
Once that your business with Palina are finished, return inside and talk with the soldier in the kitchen (there are some differences in function if you choose to copy the Aramite Jade Clerk or not).
If you talk with the soldier that is just outside the Fort, he will tell you that some soldiers are harassing some Maranite women. Return to the Eastern Dessert and visit the cavern on the left side and you will find them. Copy them for a lot of RPs (and/or your own sense of justice) and 3024 EXP too.
You're done with this part.
Negotiate with the Church of Ivala representative
Just visit the Ivalan representative's office. Talk with the dwarf outside the office, the priestess and the bored redhead dwarf. This last conversation will trigger a frenetic persecution. Once Simon catches up with him, a one-on-one fight with Mestan (if you defeat him, Simon gets 3333 EXP). After the fight (strangely, a defeat doesn't trigger a GAME OVER screen), you're offered a rematch. Independently if you choose to take him with just Simon (recommended) or with everyone, it doesn't happen. Instead, you have a conversation with him (with hilarious moments). Once you're finished, talk with the Ivalan priestess to finish this task.
You should meet Mestan at the bottom of the stairs to to learn some info about Aram's internal infights. There's also a scene between Carina and the representative.
Negotiate with the Maranite tribes
To access the desert map, you have to talk with the dwarf at the counter in the stairs just upside of Mestan's position.
On the way to the oasis, you can take the monsters that roam the dessert. Some of them will be on larger groups so party members with AoE skills will be useful here. There is a small cavern to the left (empty for now) that will be relevant after you visit the Aramite Fort.
Once you arrive to the oasis, talk with everyone (Megail's contact is near the water). One of the robed figures will point you to a cavern plagued with dangerous monsters. There is also a dwarf that Megail should be talk to.
Approach the elder to start the negotiations. Now it should be a good time to explore that dangerous cavern.
Once you're back, talk to the elder to trigger a sex scene. Although the conversations are not over yet, this task appears to be completed at this point.
Help clear the southern tunnels
The entrance to the southern tunnels can be found at the south-west square of the lower floor. Once inside, take the Explosives and take the left corridor (as it's shorter that the right). Seeing that each time that Simon takes out a small obstacle it costs 100 MP, you can clean the dungeon of obstacles first and of monsters later (after Simon has rested) or use Yarra's buffing skills (Sexual Mana and Shared Fantasy) and Simon's Lust Renewal to recharge Simon's MP.
You can end the cleaning with one extra explosive (and be congratulated for it). (With version .2 it's possible to keep the extra explosive if you took only 2 crates with you at the beginning, do the job, do the report ant then take the last crate but it's a bug that will be fixed so just don't do it).
The fights shouldn't be too hard, but just in case:
- Darkjaw: weak against Fire.
- Tunnel Bat: weak against Lightning.
- Young Dwaregast: weak against Fire.
- Goblin Fighter: weak against Sexual attacks.
You don't get enough Explosives to blow all the big obstacles (you just miss one!) so study the layout of the dungeon to see if you can access the pillar points from the other side before blowing (in particular, pay attention to the big rock formations along the right side - there is one that you can just walk around). Don't forget to clear all the smaller obstacles and to visit the southern passage (it will trigger a conversation with Lynine and Orilise). Once you have finished with all the enemies and put the the pillars in their place, return to the entrance and talk to the dwarven. The best result is:
|“||"Seems like you pretty much scoured the place[...]"||”|
At the exit, if you have cleared enough smaller obstacles another conversation about Simon's difficulties dealing with magic will take place.
Create a formal alliance between Yhilin and Eustrin
Once you're ready, accept the queen proposal. At the question, So we have Eustrin as an ally?, the best result is:
|“||[...], and you have done much to gain our favor.||”|
During the planning stage, a messenger will alert about an attack from Yhilin. The party will be translated there to resolve the situation. How bad or good the situation actually is will depend of various variables. A complete description can be found here. Once that business is concluded, you're done.
Govern Yhilin IV Edit
Continue working on the many tasks involved in running a country, then return to Janine. (3 sticks)
Just check the relevant part of the walkthrough.
