[Image] "Worlds of Xeen" Walkthrough [Image]
This is a pretty rough walkthrough for Worlds of Xeen... It is made from my
notes as I went through the game, and I forgot to write down some of the
locations, so I apologize for any omissions... Also, this is a pretty big
game, so I've omitted a number of details (I didn't mention everything you
could kill, for example). Just because I didn't mention something doesn't
mean you shouldn't check it out. Try wandering over every square of the
maps. You'll find a lot of cool stuff out there! Also, be sure to look at
the overhead view (click on the map icon) when you're at the edge of the
clouds/world/skyroads. Sometimes there are things out there that you can't
see in the first-person view... (for example, there are islands next to the
skyroads that can only be reached by teleporting).
[Image] Killing nasty monsters: In general, if you haven't seen them, they
haven't seen you. This means that if you go around mazes backwards (ie
backing up all the way), you'll sneak up on monsters and they won't be able
to pound you repeatedly as you walk up to them. Once you've seen them once,
however, it's all over.
[Image] You can edge around swinging blades, urns that ask for money, magic
portals, cursed tiles, and the like by turning so that you're not facing
them and moving sideways at them (using the arrow keys on the lower
righthand side of the screen). This saves you from having to repeatedly
cast etherealize or jump spells. NOTE: THIS FEATURE HAS BEEN DISABLED
(rats!) IN VERSION 1.1!
[Image] SELL EVERYTHING. Don't just discard equipment. Money becomes a
problem towards the middle of the game, so be very penny pinching! Bear in
mind, also, that armour is worth more than weapons, for example, so save
before you find a cache of good stuff and then keep trying till you get
lots of armour.
[Image] Buying equipment, especially at the vendors southeast of
Sandcaster, is very expensive. You will soon find much better armour and
weapons, so don't bother.
[Image] Buying Merchant Skill for a couple of your adventurers is very
worthwhile. It allows you to sell items for twice their normal price.
You'll make up the money you spent very quickly!
[Image] Unlike M&M III, where accessories could increase your AC (i.e. an
obsidian ring would increase your AC by 21), in WoX accessries do NOT
increase your AC unless they have specific enchantments on them to do so
(i.e, they are "armoured," or "divine," or something of that nature.)
Obsidian rings are only good for selling....
[Image] BE SURE to get the navigation skill before entering the deserts.
Otherwise, it'll take your characters 3 hours to move one square... you'll
spend all of your time sleeping!

29. Castle Burlock:
i) Take tiara (found in Rivercity) to Princess Roxanne on the 3rd floor at
(2,11) for 200,000 exp and treasure.
ii) You can learn Linguistics and Astrology here for free, from two books
found at (6,5) and (10,5) respectively.
iii) See the Master Builder. He will offer to build walls of Newcastle, for
5 megacredits. Do so. He'll tell you to go have a look. Go look, and get
the Stone of entry to the Tomb of a Thousand Terrors. Clean out the Tomb,
and you should get enough megacredits to complete the castle and dungeon
(you need five apiece). See the master builder about building a castle.
He'll take another five megacredits, and tell you to go have a look again.
Do so, and upon entry,. you'll receive the Golem Stone of Admittance. Go
back to the Master Builder. He'll tell you that the castle needs a dungeon,
but that you need a builder's permit to make that. See the Royal Advisor
(also in Burlock Castle) for the permit, then return to the Builder. He'll
start building, for a last five megacredits...
30. Tomb of a Thousand Terrors: contains 8 megacredits, and lots of potions
to increase your attributes. Of course, they make you insane... Note also
that there are many indetectable hidden passages. If in doubt...bang on the

(13,5), and (19,9)

turn, takes you to a room inaccessible by any other means.
+5 Speed: (18,19), (16,19)
+5 Might: (9,30), (13,30), (7,26), (1,26)
+5 Endurance: (8,17), (7,22), (1,22)

+5 Luck: (26,8), (24,8)

+5 Personality: (15,5), (11,5)
Other hidden passages: (13,24), (11,24), (9,24), (10,16), (5,27), (3,27)
31. Golem Tower B4 (11,9). Contains 14 megacredits, if you need them. (If
you got all of the ones in the Tomb, then you shouldn't...)
i) Stone Golems: King's Megacredits at (11,22) and (11,28) Go to room with
6 blocks. Numbering the levers 1 to 3 as you go further inside the room,
pull 1, then 3, then 2, then 1, then 3. You should have 6 glowing stones
and 2 blocks.
ii) Wood Golems: King's Megacredits at (6,1) and (4,1) Pull all 6 levers,
teleporting yourself out of the passages as they become sealed off.
iii) Iron golems: Megacredits at (17,7), (22,28), and (22,22)
Number the switches as follows: #1: (21,20) #2: (23,20) #3: (25,20) #4
(21,14) #5 (23,14) #6 (25,14)
Now, pull 1,2,4,5, and 6. Proceed inside through the newly opened passages,
and pull the final switch inside @ (19,25). This will create a new
teleporter (green glowing dots) in the center of the room (22,25). Take it.
iv) Diamond golems: King's Megacredits at (15,12), (15,16), (11,9),
(30,12), (30,6), (27,4), and (18,4)
Go through the Diamond golem area. You'll have to take several teleporters,
and will eventually come to a final statue. Look at the statue and everyone
will gain 1 level. Take the teleporter back out.
32. Newcastle: contains "Xeen Slayer" After getting the Master Builder at
Castle Burlock to build walls, visit the site. Upon entry, The Taxman will
give you the Stone of entry to the Tomb of a Thousand Terrors. Upon second
entry, (once you've had the castle built) he'll give you the Golem Stone of
Admittance. Finally, when you've had the dungeon built, go down to it
(password is "laboratory"). You'll find 4 potions of the Gods and the Xeen
Slayer sword. Note that a couple of hidden passages are indetectable, even
to characters with that secondary skill. There are hidden walls at: (11,4),
(4,4), and (7,7); potions at (12,1), (8,9), (6,9), and (2,1): and the sword
rests at (7,4).
33. Dragon Caves: These are a good place to gain a lot of treasure, but
they can also make you lose a lot of it again if you're careless. There are
little urns in the middle of many of the tunnels. These urns collect a
"Dragon Tax" when you go by, unless you a) cast etherealize, or b) turn
sideways and edge past them. I recommend plan (b), myself. Works like a
charm! There are also 6 books here which give your characters experience
points when you read them. They do, however, require that your characters
have a very high intelligence. The last of the six requires an intellect up
in excess of 250...!
Book 1: (16,0)
Book 2: (0,31)
Book 3: (31,31)
Book 4: (22,16)
Book 5: (27,0). Requires intellect >150
Art of Taxation: (27,1). Requires intellect >250
Note that there are many hidden passageways, too.

exp. Level 2: pull 4 levers to extend bridges Level 4 leads to Shangri-La.

iv) Stairs at (7,4) leads to dungeon of Alamar's Castle on Darkside.
36. Northern Sphinx: Get amulet from Arie the Sorcerer's apprentice at
(0,15): Teleport spell
(14,2): Item to Gold spell
Hidden passage at (7,8)
Thieves' Throne: (7,13) only thieves may sit here, but it increases
their exp. by 500,000.

Orc Thone: (4,14) +500K exp to half-orcs
Elf Throne: (2,4) +500K exp to elves
(12,8) Starburst Spell
37. Killing Lord Xeen: Go to the top of Darzog's tower. Cast levitate, and
enter the cloud layer. Go forward until you reach the sign that says, "Lord
Xeen: 9N," and teleport 9 squares north. There will be five tents here. At
four of them, you can get cupie dolls for speed, endurance, might, and
accuracy (use your most highly endowed characters to compete). You can
trade these dolls in for a Lord Xeen cupie doll at the tent nearest the
castle. The Lord Xeen cupie doll will allow you to enter the castle.
Destroy the poison generator (14,14) and the cold generator (1,14) on this
level. Go into the side rooms, and take the stairs up to the fourth level.
Destroy the electricity generator (12,1) and the fire generator (3,1) on
level 4. Now go into the center keep, and climb the stairs to get to the
fourth level again. Destroy the Xeen guard generator, Dragon (Xeen's pet),
and finally, Lord Xeen himself. Note that ordinary weapons do not work on
Xeen, but that the Lord Xeen Sword does. Spells work ok, though --
implosion does a fine job. You will receive the Scepter of Temporal
Distortion upon his demise, but unfortunately, as soon as you try to enter
the sixth mirror which you will also see in that room -- it will shatter.
And so will the game. It's a bug, guys. Bummer. However, if you really want
to, you can see the movie you missed by going to any mirror and typing
SECOND QUEST: KILLING ALAMAR (ON DARKSIDE):
Take any of the pyramids cloudside to enter Castleview, a town on the
Darkside. The first time you enter darkside AFTER giving Phirna roots to
the old woman on cloudside, she'll visit you and hand you the dragon
1. Castleview: PASSES can be bought in a tent just outside the city!
a) Clean all the goblins and gremlins out of the town. In particular, deal
with the gremlin king at (29,13). He'll give you 3 energy disks. (If you
choose to kill him, you'll have to search his tent afterwards to find the
disks!) Then go see the mayor (23,27) to receive 50,000 exp and 10,000
b) Cartographer's challenge: Castleview, (30,20). Answer is "Sandcaster."
Note that there is a typo in the hints you're given. The guy should say,
"If the Great Northern Tower is WEST of Lakeside, then cross out W,U,I."
Makes it a bit more of a challenge, eh?
c) Free the guy in jail (jail entrance at (6,22)) and talk to his brother
Jethro the Mapmaker at (22,24) to receive 10,000 exp.
d) Buy fake treasure map from Joe, the map seller in town (28,30). Take the
map to Jethro at (22,24) to receive a REAL treasure map.

3. Ellinger's Tower: Get Key from woman in Castleview at (27,19) in return
for necklace. Go inside. You will be asked a question, and asked to choose
one of three answers. CHOOSE THE FIRST...or you're screwed big time. (Well,
not really, but you'll have to enter the tower from the skyroads). Go
upstairs, opening any cupboards along the way. You'll get a bunch of very
nice boots this way. (on the 4th level are two pairs of obsidian boots, in
fact). On the next level, pull back the tapestries to reveal 5 buttons.
PUSH THE OUTER FOUR -- the center one resets the others. This will remove
the lava that blocks your passage.
+20 Fire resistance: lvl 2 (9,5)
+20 Electrical Resistance: lvl 2 (9,11)
Pull back tapestry at (10,10) on level 2 to reveal another passage. Go up
to the fourth level. You are seeking ELLINGER.
Talk to him, and he'll ask you to find 20 energy disks, 5 to restore each
quarter of Kalindra's castle. He will also tell you that he'll make the
treasure chest in the room at Castleview (3,5) sit still for you. That
isn't exactly true. It WILL sit still, but only if you get it in the right
place. Walk around the room counterclockwise until you reach the door
again. Turn around, and you'll see that the chest is at the center of the
room. Approach it from the front, and it will sit still.
4. Find Monga Melons in the A4 area. Give to Monga Monkey at B4(3,12).
He'll tell you to go see the dungeon in the Medusa Sprite forest. When you
do so (and discover that you need a key to get in), go back and see him.
He'll give you the key (to the Temple of Bark) for another Monga Melon.
5. Monk at A4(1,4): looking for the word "Palindrome." Tell him and receive

elemental resistance by +50 (for everyone), and many potions to increase

level 3: Rescue various prisoners for experience.
level 4. Set two dials on the western side to 1, two dials on the northern

fight, feed the four northern skulls 5 gems apiece, and kill Barkman at

gone, you can also mop up the other treasure in this level (2 "treasure
rooms" with chests of treasure in them).

21. E2(8,15): Listen to the tree. Keep on listening until he gives you
coordinates to the treasure at the end of the rainbow. Gain 250K exp.
22. Great Northern Tower: Contains 2 energy disks. (Visit Bosco at
D1(1,8).) He'll give you the key to the N. Tower, and ask you to retrieve
the chalice inside for him. Go inside... Lots of books here. All have
common sayings in them -- minus the vowels. You must supply the vowels...
1) EEEIOIE; 500K exp. (Let Sleeping Dogs Lie)
2) EOAUAAUE; 500K exp. (He who laughs last, laughs best)

Energy Disks: lvl 4 (3,8), (11,8)
Chalice: Answer is "AIE" (you seek "chalice," but give it the vowels only
as you have been doing with the other puzzles!)
23. Take chalice to Bosco at D1(1,8) to receive 100,000 gold + 1,000,000
24. See Giant king at D1(10,5). If you're nice, he'll give you 2 energy
disks. If not, you'll have to fight him, but you'll get lots of armour.
a) Boulder Puzzle: Go to talking boulder at C2(11,10). Answer to question
is "Paladin" for 1,000,000 exp. + treasure at the other seven boulders: D2:
(0,10), (5,5) (5,10), (0,0) & (5,0); C2 (11,0) & (11,5) (get obsidian
armour at these sites).
b) Rub genies' lamps to get your pick of experience, gold, or gems. I'd
take the gold. Experience comes easily (you'll get more than you need) and
gold gets scarce... There are lamps at B2 (13,9), C2: (2,6), (6,11), and
(3,15), as well as several other places.
26. Necropolis: Statuette, Key to Dungeon of Death Get key from the head
witches' bedroom at Lakeside.
a) Buy guild membership at (10,6) for 50,000 gold
b) Clean the town of monsters. This can be done pretty easily with the
"Holy Word" spell.
c) Visit Sandro at the throne at (10,8). He'll ask you to retrieve his
heart from the sewers below, then attack you. Kill him (only a temporary
measure...he'll attack you again if you look at his throne again!), then go
down into the sewers. From the entrance at (8,5), go south as far as you
can, then west (again as far as you can), then north as far as you can,
then west and take the first right (north), then take the first left
(west), and take the first right (north). You'll come to an alcove
containing Sandro's heart. Return it to Sandro for 2,000,000 exp. plus the
Key to the Dungeon of Death (NOTE: this should be the STONE to the Dungeon
of Death... the DoD is on Cloudside, and requires a STONE, not a KEY!)
d) Also in the sewers are several casks marked "Food of the Dead." If a
character eats from those (after killing the monsters that come out), he
gains 1 level. The character that does so dies, but can be resurrected and
only loses 1 endurance... (be sure to remove his armour before eating --
that way you don't have to get it fixed every time!)
e) There are 9 "Books of the Dead" up in the town. Use these to gain exp.
Your characters will also magically be aged, but this can be reversed by
drinking from the well of youth back at F4(6,7). f) Get the Pegasus
Statuette from the alcove to the right of the throne.
27. Tower of Mok: (Great Western Tower) contains 2 Energy Disks, Statuette.
Visit the ousted Priest of Mok at A3(8,10). He'll ask you to reclaim the
Tower of Mok for him. To get in, you'll need to use the skyroads. Cast
levitate, then take the ladder at A3(14,7). Go south, then take the first
right turn and go west till you get to Kalindra's castle. Jump to the outer
skyroad, and go north till you get to the Mok Tower. Go inside, and search
the bones there. You will find a key to the tower. Go back out, and head
down to the base of the tower (the easy way or the hard way...if you're
impatient like me, just JUMP!) Clean out the tower.
At lvl 1 (8,8) and (6,8) are 2 energy disks.
lvl 1, (7,7) is the third statuette.
28. Go see Priest of Mok at A3(8,10). He'll ask you to meet him inside the
tower. Meet him at lvl 4 (4,10) and he'll give you 500K exp., 10,000 gold,
and 200 gems.
29. Return 3 statuettes to the Druid at A4(13,13) and receive 5 LEVELS!
30. Kalindra's Castle, Part 1: Take 15 energy disks to Ellinger in his
tower at Castleview. He'll open 3/4 of Kalindra's castle. Go visit the
a) Armsmaster: lvl 1 (8,6) FREE!
b) Danger Sense: lvl 1 (8,8) FREE
c) Many of the fireplaces are actually hidden buttons. Most don't appear to
do anything, however. (Some open passages, though).
d) Astrology: lvl 2 (3,6) FREE!
e) Visit Dimitri, Captain of the Guard, on level 2 (10,15); also visit his
daughter at (11,15) on the same floor. She'll give you the key to the
Dungeon on the Isle of Lost Souls, and ask you to bring back the Songbird
of Serenity for her father.
31. Dungeon of Lost Souls: Contains Songbird of Serenity Get key from
Dimitri's Daughter in Castle Kalindra, lvl 2 (11,15).
Level 1: Don't need to flip all of the hourglasses -- just say you did when
you go downstairs.
Level 2: Turn all 4 dials up, then pull the lever. Drink "Soul Waters" for
654,321 exp. Do NOT drink the "Negative Soul Water!" ... But lie and say
you did when you go downstairs.
Level 4: Pull lever at (14,10) (Cast etherealize to get there, or walk
there sideways) and use stairway at (14,12). Note: you'll need lots of
money to do this ...276,000 gold, if I remember right...
Level 5: Lots of opportunity to increase your party's attributes:
+6 endurance for all: (31,15), (20,15), (27,31)
+6 luck for all: (29,15),(26,28)
+6 might for all: (29,17),(31,25)
+6 speed for all: (31,10), (24,31)
+6 personality for all: (20,11), (20,24)
+6 accuracy for all: (29,19), (26,30)
...But no intellect. I guess the designers couldn't come up with a bird
that started with "I"...("Albatross of Accuracy" was going a bit far afield
as it was.) Welllll...for that matter....can I come up with a bird that
starts with "I?" Hmmm. Maybe the "Ibis of Intellect." Hehe.
The Songbird of Serenity can be found at (1,8). Also, the walls (if you
look at them from above) spell out, "My Name is Sheltem."
32. Castle Kalindra, Part 2: Contains 6 Energy Disks Take the Songbird of
Serenity to Capt. Dimitri, and he will tell you that you need to take the
Queen's Crown to her at Castle Blackfang, but that the crown is in the
Queen's safe and only she has the combination. He will, however, give you
the combination of the safes on level 2, which contain 6 energy disks.
(combination is 64,52,31). Give 5 more disks to Ellinger. He'll open the
rest of Castle Kalindra. Youi may explore the top level, now. You can
activate the mirrors (that are found in towers throughout Darkside) at lvl
3(1,1). You can also increase a character's personality or might here.
+10 Personality: lvl3 (8,15), (9,14), (9,15)
+10 Might: lvl 3 (9,0), (9,1), (9,2), (8,2), (8,1)
33. Castle Blackfang, Part 1: Go to Castle Blackfang. You'll discover that
there is no way in. Return to Castle Kalindra.
34. Castle Kalindra, part 3: Return to Capt. Dimitri. He'll tell you to see
Ambrose, the Queen's Champion, to help you get into Castle Blackfang.
35. Find Ambrose at B1(12,5). Tell him that "Dimitri" sent you. He'll give
you a bridle that he needs enchanted. Take the bridle to the enchantress in
Sandcaster (21,4). She will enchant it for 50,000 gold. Return the bridle
to Ambrose, and he'll pay you 50,000 gold. Now, when you go to Castle
Blackfang, he'll be there, ready to take you inside.
36. Castle Blackfang, part 2: contains Key to Royal Pyramid
a) Ring gong at (15,0) to let you upstairs to the Skyroads.
b) Search coffins for vampires and treasure.
c) Go up to top floor and take rear stairs back down to the dungeon. You'll
find the Queen at (1,1). Talk to her twice and she'll give you the
combination to her safe (3,31,62). Go back to Castle Kalindra, retrieve the
crown from the safe at lvl 3 (2,15). Return the crown to the Queen, and
receive 5,000,000 exp. + the Key to the Royal Pyramid.
37. Royal Pyramid D2(0,5) in the desert: lvl 1: Pull 6 levers, then go
Smallest prime: "3"
Smallest even: "4"
Smallest prime left: "5"
What's left: "6"
Largest prime: "7"
Twice smallest even: "8"
Smallest squared: "9"
Answer all of these correctly, then go and pull at lvl 1 (25,20). This will
open up a passageway at (28,19) to a great deal of obsidian-class treasure
lvl 2: the answer to the riddle is "1701."
lvl 3: cast etherealize near the upper lefthand corners of the spiral.
lvl 4: See the Dragon Pharoah in the throne. Talk to him for 5,000,000 exp.
He'll tell you to check out the marooned spaceship in the lava near
Necropolis. Also, you can open the safe in that room with the combination
(20,30,1). There's a book in there that'll give everyone 1,000,000 exp.
(Your thief can probably figure out the combination if he's really good,
but mine never got that high. I had to cheat -- see notes about "Cheating
with Resedit" at the end of the walkthrough...)
38. Freeing Corak: Enter the spaceship 3 squares S and a few squares west
of the Necropolis.
a) Activate the Main Console (25,4). Touch heads at either (28,10) or
(28,6). Increases characters' stats, also ages them. These heads are
multi-use, but only work for certain classes.
b) Go to console at (2,8) Answer "Where no man has gone before"
c) Go to throne at (4,8) to find Corak. (+5,000,000 exp). He'll tell you
that you must find some way to conceal him before he can leave the
39. Royal Pyramid, part 2: Contains pass to Olympus. Go back to see the
Dragon Pharoah. He'll give you a pass to Olympus and tell you to look for
the Soulbox in the Olympus sewers. The soulbox will conceal Corak.
40. Olympus: Contains Soulbox. CAST LEVITATE BEFORE YOU PORTAL < HERE! Get
pass from Dragon pharoah.
a) Guild membership at (5,1): FREE! You can learn all spells at Olympus,
and can train up past level 100.
b) Enter sewers through the tavern. Password: "Tribbles" Get soulbox at the
end of the passageway.
41. Return to Corak and he'll climb inside the soulbox, ready to jump out
when you get near Alamar...
42. Alamar's Castle: Keys to Dragon Tower, Darkstone Tower, Amulet of S.
Sphinx, Alamar himself...
Go down to the dungeon level.
(10,15): +5 levels (x2)
(10,11): +5 levels (x2)
(10,7): +5 levels (x2) Pull levers at (6,5) and (8,5). Get key to Dragon
Tower on Cloudside at (13,3).
Once you have gone to Dragon Tower (see #43, below), you will return with
the Silver ID card. Take ID card to skull at (15,5) and he'll open another
passage. Inside, you'll find the Key to Darkstone Tower (also on
Cloudside). Cleaning Darkstone Tower (see #44, below) will get you the Gold
ID card. Give the Gold ID card to the skull at (15,9). He'll open the final
passage, in which you will find 2 potions (+5 levels x3) and Prince Roland.
Free him, and he'll give you 5,000,000 exp and the Amulet of the Southern
Sphinx. He will ask you to retrieve the Chime of Opening in order to open
the door leading from the top level of Darkstone Tower to the Cloud Layer
above, so that he and Kalindra may be married up there. Go up, now, to
level 1. Going forward from the entrance, you'll come to a large room with
4 statues. Visit all four statues, then go to the stairwell. Go up, and
you'll find yourself in a room with sundials at all four corners. Turn all
of the dials to "9," and then go to the head in the center of the room. It
should ask for Alamar's true name. ("Sheltem") You may now go up to the
next floor. The 3rd level is a patchwork of earth, air, fire, and water.
One of the statues in the dungeon (or maybe in Shangri-La?) gives the order
of squares that you need to take to reach the other side. BE SURE TO CAST
The order is: FEWAEEFFWAEFAWEEWWEFAW or,
This should get you to the other side. Go forward, and Sheltem will drag
you in, and... Watch the movie. (Corak will pop out and ...well...you'll
see.) You'll receive the "Cube of Power" from this quest's completion.
43. Dragon Tower D1(10,5): contains the Silver ID card Get the key for the
Dragon Tower in the Dungeon of Alamar's Castle on Darkside.
Tower: When you enter the tower, there is a fellow off to your left that
will ask you to bring him a dragon egg. Going forward, you will find
yourself facing three sets of stairs. The outer two will lead you up to
dead ends, but you will find the dragon egg at the top of one and both of
them contain lots of treasure and potions that give you +40 endurance (x4)
apiece. Take the dragon's egg back to the fellow < at the entrance and
you'll get 1,000,000 exp -- of course, you'll also have to fight him after
he drinks the egg and turns into a dragon king...
Cloud Layer: Now, go up the center stairs. On level 4, you'll find 2 "Tomes
of Great Experience," which give all players +10,000,000 exp. (Also, you'll
find 3 chests, but you probably won't be able to open them until later,
when your characters are enhanced.) Cast levitate, go up onto the cloud
layer, and kill off all the dragons. The technique of "backing into them"
works really well here. If you walk up to them (forward), they'll just hose
you before you ever get within striking range!
Once you've cleaned out the dragons, you can use the crystals, which will
give you +3-5 levels (the number awarded is random, so I suggest saving and
restoring the game until the characters get +5 levels every time.) Now, go
check out the statue at (15,30). The code word you need is "Infinity," and
it will give you the Silver ID card. This will, however, release about ten
energy dragons, so BACK UP towards the dragon tower, and kill them as you
go. Once you've killed them all, visit the well at (33,30) to temporarily
gain 50 levels, and then go back to open the chests on the 4th level. Your
thief should be skilled enough, at this point, to open the chests. Hint: it
helps to take off everyone's armour before you open a chest -- the chest
really gives everybody a good wallop, and generally kills at least one
person (and knocks several others unconscious). You really don't want to
have to fix their armour every time...
44. Darkstone Tower, Part 1: contains the Gold ID card. Get the key for
Darkstone Tower in the Dungeon of Alamar's Castle on Darkside.
Ring gongs on each of the levels to pass to the next.
Hint: The statues in the corners are useless...
When you get to the top, there will be two skulls in the middle. One will
give you a hint, while the other will ask you a question. The answer to the
question is "120." This will release the field around the blue box, which
contains the Gold ID card. Note that you cannot pass to the cloud level,
yet -- a force repels you.
FINAL QUEST: OPEN THE CLOUD LEVEL ABOVE DARKSTONE TOWER
1. Waking the four elementals: Go to the Skyroads over Darkside. The Outer
Skyroad is shaped like a square, with patches of the four elements at the
corners. Cast levitate, and go stand on each of the squares. You will be
asked what you want. Speak the name of the element (ie, on the fire square,
say "fire"). This will send you into the elemental plane, where you can
wake the elemental. The elemental sits on a throne somewhere in the middle
of the plane: Fire: (3,12) Water: (3,3) Air: (12,12) Earth: (12,3) Don't
bother taking the test of the elements (at the shrine on those plane) or
trying to open the chests there. You'll just die...
2. While you're on the outer skyroads, at about the center of the 4 sides
of the square, there is a wagon. The "Merchant of Elements" inside will ask
you a question. The answers are as follows: Between air and earth = DUST;
Between fire and air = SMOKE; Between water and earth = MUD; Between fire
and water = STEAM. You'll receive 250K exp each.
3. Find Everhot Lava Rock at E2(7,11), Cloudside, and give it to Halon the
Geek at B3(9,6). Receive exp. and a widget.
4. Dungeon of Death : E3(3,4), Cloudside
1: *sigh* It's a crossword puzzle.
29: ?? spell (I may have gotten
28 and 29 mixed)
Once you've completed the puzzle, you will be allowed down to the next
level. All characters will gain 5 levels automatically.
Level 2: Go ahead and pull all the levers that you can as you go. I never
found out what they did, but they certainly don't hurt you! You'll get to a
large room just after the "game room." Inside are several shrines. Destroy
the Shrine of Minor Evil for 1,000,000 exp, the Shrine of Lesser Evil for
2,000,000 exp, and the Shrine of Great Evil for 5,000,000 exp -- but DON'T
destroy the Shrine of Ultimate Evil. It'll destroy Xeen!
Note that there are hallways branching off of this main room. Take the very
last hallway. At the end (0,0), turn the dial (doesn't matter how much). A
new passage will appear behind you. Inside are coffins that contain
vampires and LOTS of obsidian-class treasure. There is also a dial (17,2)
that will open a passage back to the beginning of the level, and a stairway
leading down to level 3...
Level 3: You need to ring the four gongs, then pull the lever. You can edge
by the treasures by going SIDEWAYS (you needn't cast etherealize every
time). The gongs are at: (2,3), (2,28), (27,30), and (29,4). Ring them all,
then pull the lever at (17,3) to reveal a stairway down to the last level.
Level 4: Equip your Lord Xeen Slayer Sword. Destroy all the Lord Xeens and
the Lord Xeen machines at the four corners of this level (2,3), (27, 3),
(28,29), and (3,29) -- get 5,000,000 exp each! Go to the main terminal
Enter Code "Computer" ...he he ... and you'll become a "Super Goober!"
5. Southern Sphinx: contains Chime of Opening Get amulet from Prince
Roland, in the Dungeon of Alamar's Castle.
Body: Drinking several of the barrels will give you 2,000,000 exp, but also
give you quite a kick. I don't recommend doing so -- you really DON'T need
the experience...The coffins are all hell to open (need strength >250), but
they contain obsidian-class treasure.
Dungeon: contains seven "Super-Embalming Potions," which give a
character +5 levels, at (14,5), (15,0), (0,13), (0,0), (12,10), (2,1),
Also gives hints about the name of the Sphinx ("Picard")
Head: To get to the head, you'll need to give the name of the sphinx. The
name is "Picard." Once inside, go to the SECOND throne, and exchange the
widget that you got from Halon for the Chime of Opening.
6. Turning on four reflectors: Go to the four corners of the world.
Teleport out to the scrap of land that you can see off the edge of the
world (e.g., from F1(13,10), teleport north 5; from A1(2,11) teleport north
4; From A4(4,2) teleport west 4; and from F4(10,11) teleport east 4). Turn
on the reflectors that you see there.
7. Darkstone Tower, Part 2:
The Wedding: Once you've done everything else, go to the top of Darkstone
Tower. Now that you have the chime of opening, you should be able to get to
the cloud level. Cast levitate, and follow the cloud spiral around and
around and around and around until you get to the center pyramid. Watch the
movie... and try not to grimace at the ...er... consummation of the

(Eqpt. List Compiled by: Wong Chee Kong for M&M III
Date: 21 Nov 1991
Updated for W. of Xeen by P.Sears 6/18/95)
There are lots of bugs in this version. This is a list of some of them...
and possible workarounds...
1. General Crashing (version 1.0): First and foremost, as everyone seems to
have noticed, it crashes an awful lot. For most of the crashes, there
aren't any known fixes. Some people swear by starting up the computer
without any extensions except Quicktime 2.0 and Quicktime Power Plug.
Others say that even that doesn't always work. (Doesn't work really well
for me, but then I have some extensions - screen drivers and Stacker and
the like -- that cannot be disabled...) One thing that I have found to be
true, however, is that the game crashes far less often when the sound
effects, speech, and music are turned OFF.
Also, according to Drew Kim (Andrew_Illsik_Kim@postoffice.brown.edu), the
game crashes far less often if you quit the finder. You must write a short
program to do this, as putting Xeen in the background and trying to "Force
Quit" the Finder (apple-option-esc) doesn't work. This has the added
advantage of getting rid of the desktop in the background.
NOTE: Much of the crashing has been fixed by the 1.0 -> 1.1 patch,
available at sumex-aim.stanford.edu and its mirrors (try
2. The infamous "blacksmith" bug (the game crashes when you try to leave
the blacksmith's shop) can be avoided generally by clicking on the "Sell"
button before you leave. (FIXED BY 1.0 -> 1.1 PATCH)
3. The game crashes reproducably at the endgame sequence on Cloudside. This
does NOT cause a problem insofar as completing the game is concerned (the
game automatically saves just prior to the offending QT Movie, and when you
restart the game after the crash, you will find yourself in back
Castleview, at a point JUST AFTER the crash sequence). It is, however, kind
of a pain, and New World Computing promises a patch sometime in the near
future (as of 5/20/95, they said it would be 2 weeks or so). You can still
view the QT movie by typing "Showtime" at any of the mirrors. (FIXED BY 1.0
-> 1.1 PATCH)
4. Second letter of Dwarven Mine code should read _L___, not _I___ (you
want deep mine ALPHA, not deep mine AIPHA!)
5. In the clues to the cartography puzzle in Castleview, the guy should say
"If the Great Northern Tower is WEST of Lakeside, cross out W,U, and I,"
not "If ....is EAST of..."
6. In the cave of illusion, the skull at level 1, (9,8) offers +2 speed,
and gives +2 might.
7. Great Northern Tower: In "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride,"
"beggars" is spelled with two "e's"...i.e., "beggers."
8. The "Key to the Dungeon of Death" that you get from Sandro should be a
Stone, actually, not a key.
1. Enter "Count du Money" in any mirror on Cloudside to get to a treasure
room in the dragon caves.
2. Enter "I Lost It" in any mirror on Cloudside to get a Xeen Slayer Sword!
3. Enter Showtime, Showdown, or Genesis to see the endgames for the
Cloudside, Darkside, and the Final Quests, respectively.
4. Enter "computer" in the terminal at the base of the Dungeon of Death to
become a "Super Goober." BWAHahaha!
Cheating with Resedit:
1. Most of the answers to the riddles can be found in the text resources of
the files in the folder, "Xeen Data." Most of the easter eggs can, too!
This is how, for example, I got the combination to the safe in the Royal
Pyramid and the found the password "Computer" for the computer terminal in
the Dungeon of Death.
2. Adding a resize button to the 12" window: acccording to Drew Kim
(Andrew_Illsik_Kim@postoffice.brown.edu), you can add a resize box to the
window by using Resedit to edit the Xeen application. Open WIND resource
200 and click on the third window type (has a grow box). Close and save.
This will make the window resizeable, but the fonts will look pretty nasty.
