- Talk to Iron Richard
- The first trial. Save the princess who was kidnapped by the dragon.
- The second trial. Take the Book of Death from the terrible necromancer.
- The third trial. Retrieve a piece of your mentor's armor.
The first trialEdit
Your objective is to save the "princess" (a cloth dummy) and, optionally, kill the dragon guarding her. Iron Richard will give you some troops to get you started:
(Warrior class, Normal difficulty)
Behind Iron Richard is a chest containing a Training Sword, which improves your character's attack.
The trial begins at the entrance to the Training Center just North of Iron Richard, appropriately named "Entrance". The Training Center consists of a hallway and a larger room containing the Dragon. Scour the hallway for lootable objects and then enter the larger room to face the enemy. On normal mode, the enemy's army consists of 1 Emerald Dragon. It is possible to evade the dragon and retrieve the "princess" without a fight.
Retrieve the dummy and retrace your path to return to Iron Richard.
The second trialEdit
Use the entrance, follow the hallway, and speak to the necromancer. Refuse his offer to enter battle. His army consists of (Normal difficulty):
Destroy his army, then return to Iron Richard.
The third trialEdit
A piece of Iron Richard's armor has been buried in the catacombs, retrieve it. You may choose to fight or evade enemy armies consisting of different types of spiders here. Explore the area until a shaft of light appears, highlighting the ground. Anywhere near this area use the Dig action (default on PC is 'D') to unearth a chest. There may be several chests containing junk items, continue unearthing chests until you find the artifact, a rusty knight's boot. Return this boot to Iron Richard to complete the quest.
If you check the info of that boot, you discover hidden compartment inside. You can (a)take all gold (b) take half golds, (c) leave them alone. When talking with Richard, if you take all gold you can return it and he will share half with you. If you dont take all gold, you dont have that reward. I am unsure what happened if take half, though.
Once the three trials have been completed, take the exit South of Iron Richard to enter the game world.
