Hi

I fowarded, i killed the druide and get all mage set.
But one thing is missing, i haven"t found the key (maybe the solide key) to open last houses in the second village. One house can be open with the
SpoilerShow
cross key
but others ....

I started the area with the ra key, and found another death end:
Once in the jail and the door opened.
I was blocked by the giant, he launch me a bomb on kill 3 characters, after that the pit opened. Only thoram survived but i am now in a corridor with 2 doors closed and a wall to break with a spellbook behind. How to open doors or reach next floor ?

You may find the keys in the area you are in right now. Other than that Equus and Graen have them, because those are their respective houses. But do not worry, they only contain their belongings.

There is a hint how to get away from the jail at the corpse.
SpoilerShow
Put the bones next to the bars at the end of the corridor. This will lure the blob out of his hiding. The rest will follow.

i found the solid key.

I opened one house in the village but the solid key does not work on the house near de dwarf, may another key is needed ?

About the ra ros armor set, i found a way to get the set out the force field, but once unequiped the armor become a simple plate armor.
How can i stabilized ra ros armor ?
SpoilerShow
I used fetch to get the armour over the force field
, but maybe there is there way to desactivate it ?
SpoilerShow
I found the numstaff and a blossom, the cleric staff and a green gem.
But how to combine its according to scrolls .
I am ready to run a new game but with an updated rtc files.

- Yes, another key is needed.

- This is a solution I did not foresee, but it is ok. As I said, in the following version the armor will not get disenchanted.
SpoilerShow
- you only need to bring the staff to the cauldron to get the key, but there is currently an issue with the boss fight and you will need to use a gimmick not to trigger it (see our previous conversation with antraxus).
- Other than that there is really no need to restart the game. You can progress further into the skullkeep once you have the final key.

Found a death-end in the monastry.

I toke the teleport at the first level, and be teleported in the cauldron room. After that there is no way to get back.

Because i don't open the door near the merchant and don't open the door to the mirrors room (on top of dragons level).

I can send you my savegame if you want to check.

On you last version there is a new teleport between 2 fire torch. At the level where there are 4 rooms locked by the cross key.

So how is the rest of the game? Any bugs there?
I lost my source files during the computer crash,
so i am afraid this version is truly the last one.

Hi

I started another dungeon, while waiting for a last update (about the missing wall and desanchanted shield).
Apparently there will be no other version, i stopped my last game after open the door with clan pieces.

I will start the skullkeep soon, and give you a feedback.

Hi theo

- I tried go far un the skullkeep, i found several problem. At the level where you have maze with plate to open/close pit and set/unset wall i did find the way to reach next part of the dungeon without use a gorgoyle heart. I saw a green switch isolate in a room but i can't reach it (thx to magic map).
- Once passed the whole set of cross key doors, the last pit stopped to open/close. if you fall in a pit after that, your will unable to come back to this room.
-What's a pitty that levelup scroll bugged, because when you found the greate reward (with the five eyes riddle), scrolls become useless.
- I didn't find the way to use the shop at the tavern level, there two green switch with a dwarf ...
- The skullkeep is very messy, there are no guidline and a lot of different ways

i don't know if i will finish the second part of the skullkeep, i found a lot strange mechanism and if i fall i cannot back anymore ...

Hi Jahmiann>

- All puzzles are so designed to be doable without a Gargoyle heart. There are many hidden paths in Skullkeep and it is by design impossible to access every nook of it. The dungeon is changig depending on the approach you take.
- That is a bug and possibly game breaking. But on this level you should be able to lower a ladder and also find all runes necessary for a levitation spell.
- That is indeed a pity.
- The switches in the shop should change items on the floor or directly in your inventory. If a dwarf is there to operate the shop and it still does not work it is yet another bug.
- It is meant to be this way. You need to backtrack a lot and learn how different areas are interconnected. Think of a Skullkeep as one giant puzzle (lots of mechanisms will start making sense in the finale of the game).
- You are almost at the end! The mechanisms can be a nuissance, but can eventually be avoided or turned off. In case you fall:
SpoilerShow
OH IR RA should be a levitation spell. Or you can use Gargoyle's heart or Mark & Recall to get over the pit.

Hi Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am Clodius, I am writing a French Novel novel prequel to the Dungeon Master and related to that, I am also drawing a huge map posted in Creative Endeavour/French DM Novel. I reproduced the Skullkeep castle on the map only with the few pictures I found on the Web.
I don't know if I am demanding too much but I was wondering if someone could feed me on posting nice screenshots here or PM me of anything interesting of this game. i.e. background, artifacts...
I would like to know the story lines of this game to describe it in my novel.

Thank you for anything you can show me.
Even if I had given you the smallest bite, my poison will overcome you

Try me!
