AGE AND NOBILITY BY ACCEPTING SINGLE

DO THEE ACCEPT OUR CHALLENGE (Y/N) ? Y



"BY THY WILLINGNESS TO ACCEPT THE

CHALLENGE, IN CONDITIONS MOST UN-

FAVORABLE TO THYSELF, THOU HAST

LOOKING AROUND AT HIS FELLOW DUKES,

DUKE AKBAR CONTINUES, "BECAUSE OF

ALL THAT THOU HAST BECOME, AND FOR

THE MANY FINE DEEDS THOU HAST DONE

FOR THE GOOD OF THE REALM, WE HAVE

DECIDED TO OFFER TO THEE RULERSHIP

IN THE HOPE THAT THOU WILT GOVERN

JUSTLY, AND REUNITE OUR STRIFE-TORN

DOMINIONS. WE WOULD HAVE AN END TO

THIS CONSTANT WARRING BETWEEN OUR

PEOPLE AND THE MANY MONSTERS THAT

DWELL IN THE PLANES ADJOINING OURS.



THOU ART OUR BEST HOPE TO STRIDE THE

WORLDS. WILT THEE GIVE UP THY QUEST

FOR THE MYSTICAL AMULET AND ACCEPT

THE TITLE OF OVERLORD WITH ALL ITS

POWER AND RESPONSIBILITY? CONSIDER

OUR OFFER CAREFULLY, FOR ONLY ONCE

WILL IT BE OFFERED! WILT THEE ASSUME

NOW THE THRONE AND TAKE THE CROWN?"

            SHOUT THEIR APPROVAL!



"LONG LIVE THE OVERLORD WERDNA!!"



            "VIVANT! VIVANT! VIVANT!"



THEN A HAUNTINGLY FAMILIAR VOICE

WHISPERS IN YOUR EAR,



"REMEMBER - A FAVOR OWED...SOMEDAY...

BE SEEING YOU! <CACKLE> <CACKLE>"



** FUTURE HISTORICAL FOOTNOTE **



UNDER YOUR BENIGN AND ENLIGHTENED

RULERSHIP, THE REALM WILL ENTER A

GOLDEN AGE OF PEACE AND PLENTY.

EVIL ALIGNMENT:

Writer's note:

For the evil alignment, there are 3 possible endings, which depend upon the

sword you drew at the Dreampainter's temple. This ending is for the Amber

Sword. I don't know what the other endings are for the East Wind and West

Wind Swords, but I'm guessing the only difference in the ending is the name

of the sword.



BEFORE YOU LOOMS THE GIANT STATUE OF

THE ALMIGHTY KADORTO. YOU ARE NOT

EVEN AS TALL AS HIS LITTLE TOE!



AS YOU CRANE YOUR NECK BACKWARDS AND

LOOK UP, YOU SEE THE OBJECT OF YOUR

LONG SEARCH. THE MYSTICAL AMULET IS

DANGLING FROM THE CLOSED FIST OF THE

STATUE!



"AT LAST!" YOU CRY, BUT YOUR JOY IS

SHORT-LIVED. THERE IS NO WAY THAT YOU

CAN SEE TO REACH THE AMULET!



FIGHTING BACK A GROWING FEELING OF

DESPERATION, YOU TRY EVERYTHING YOU

CAN THINK OF TO GET TO THE AMULET.

EVERY SPELL YOU KNOW IS USELESS! YOU

RUMMAGE THROUGH YOUR ITEMS, TRYING

EACH IN TURN, HOPING THAT ONE WILL

BE OF AID!



WHAT LUCK! YOUR HOLY LIMP WRIST

RELIQUARY CASTS A DIALKO SPELL!

WITH A FEELING OF TRIUMPH, YOU

WATCH AS THE DIALKO TAKES EFFECT.

THE HAND OF THE STATUE SOFTENS AND

OPENS, FREEING THE AMULET. TO YOUR

AMAZEMENT, THE DIALKO SPREADS OUT.



THE NEWLY AWAKENED GOD YAWNS AND

PEERS DOWN AT YOU WITH A LOOK OF

UTTER CONTEMPT.



"INSECT! SO YOU WANT THIS PRETTY

BAUBLE? YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE

POWERS OF THIS AMULET ARE, OR WHAT

ITS REAL PURPOSE IS. HERE! CATCH

IT!"



KADORTO THROWS THE AMULET AT YOU

WITH A DISDAINFUL FLIP OF HIS HUGE

WRIST!



YOU REACH OUT AND CATCH THE AMULET!



            YOU HAVE IT IN YOUR HAND!



THE MYTHRIL GAUNTLET PROTECTS YOU

FROM ITS RAGING ENERGIES!



"HMMMM....," INTONES KADORTO, "THINK

YOU'RE CLEVER, DON'T YOU? WELL, TO

KEEP THE AMULET, YOU WILL HAVE TO

                        DEFEAT ME!"



           "TELL ME, ARE YOU A GOD?"



THINKING QUICKLY, YOU REPLY, "YES!",

WHICH SEEMS TO BE THE RIGHT ANSWER.



              "THEN DIE LIKE A GOD!"



YOU DRAW YOUR DRAGON'S CLAW. IT HUMS

WITH ANTICIPATION. KADORTO LAUGHS AT

YOU, "WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THAT?"



ACTUALLY, YOU ARE NOT QUITE SURE, BUT

IT HAS SUSTAINED YOU THROUGH MANY

TRIALS, LENDING YOU ITS STRENGTH AND

ENERGY. KADORTO SENDS DOWN A PILLAR

OF FLAME... AND THE BLADE ABSORBS IT!

HE THROWS A BOLT OF LIGHTNING, ONLY TO

        SEE THE BLADE CLEAVE IT IN HALF!



YOU FEEL FILLED WITH ENERGY!! YOU LET

FLY WITH A MIGHTY BLOW, AND YOUR SWORD

STRIKES TRUE, SLICING DEEP INTO THE

BIG TOE OF KADORTO! YOU FEEL HIS LIFE

FORCE FLOWING INTO YOU THROUGH THE

SWORD. AS IT DOES, YOU BEGIN TO GROW

AND HE BEGINS TO SHRINK! FINALLY, YOU

ARE THE TALL GOD, AND HE IS THE PUNY

MORTAL. "THANK YOU, FREE AT LAST", HE

CROAKS AS HE EXPIRES!



YOU LAUGH AS THE PRIESTS SCURRY AROUND

REMOVING THE REMAINS. FINALLY, THEY

ALL  ASSEMBLE IN FRONT OF YOU, ABASING

THEMSELVES AND RAISING THEIR VOICES

UPWARD IN SUPPLICATION:



"ALL PRAY TO YOU, OH GREAT GOD WERDNA.

WE REJOICE THE WEAK PACIFIST KADORTO

HAS BEEN DEFEATED! TAKE UP THE SACRED

AMULET. LEAD US, OH MIGHTY ONE, INTO

GLORIOUS BATTLE. MAKE THE WORLD TREM-

BLE AT YOUR EVERY STEP! LET US FILL

THE ALTARS WITH SACRIFICES, AND THE

TEMPLE WITH GOLD AND SLAVES!"



THE YEARS PASS BY IN A BLUR OF FIRE,

BLOOD AND DESTRUCTION. LARGE AREAS OF

THE WORLD LIE DESOLATE. YOUR PRIESTS

BLOAT YOU WITH SACRIFICES AND PRAISE.

AFTER THIS, THERE ARE OTHER PLANES TO

CONQUER, OTHER PLANES WHOSE ENERGY CAN

FEE D YOUR LUST FOR POWER! YOU HAVE

ALL YOUR DESIRES, ALL YOUR DREAMS FUL-

FILLED! BUT YET......EVERY ONCE IN A

LONG WHILE, YOU WONDER...



HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN SOMETHING??



    *  *  * CONGRATULATIONS *  *  *

          YOU HAVE COMPLETED



        THE RETURN OF WERDNA!

GRANDMASTER ENDING:

Writer's note:

Warning! This ending is a major spoiler to the game! Proceed at your own

risk!



BEFORE YOU LOOMS THE GIANT STATUE OF

THE ALMIGHTY KADORTO. YOU ARE NOT

EVEN AS TALL AS HIS LITTLE TOE!

"INSECT! SO YOU WANT THIS PRETTY

POWERS OF THIS AMULET ARE, OR WHAT

IT!"



KADORTO THROWS THE AMULET AT YOU

WITH A DISDAINFUL FLIP OF HIS HUGE

WRIST!



YOU REACH OUT AND CATCH THE AMULET!



            YOU HAVE IT IN YOUR HAND!



THE MYTHRIL GAUNTLET PROTECTS YOU

FROM ITS RAGING ENERGIES!



"HMMMM....," INTONES KADORTO, "THINK

YOU'RE CLEVER, DON'T YOU? WELL, TO

KEEP THE AMULET, YOU WILL HAVE TO

                        DEFEAT ME!"



           "TELL ME, ARE YOU A GOD?"



THINKING QUICKLY, YOU REPLY, "YES!",

WHICH SEEMS TO BE THE RIGHT ANSWER.



              "THEN DIE LIKE A GOD!"



YOU DRAW YOUR DAGGER OF CLEAR LIGHT,

AND FACE KADORTO UNAFRAID, FOR YOU ARE

WHOLE AND SECURE IN YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF

THE TREE OF LIFE. KADORTO STOPS HIS

LAUGHING WHEN HE SEES YOUR BLADE.



        "NO, NO, NOT THAT!" HE CRIES!



THE KRIS BLAZES FORTH. IN ITS CLEAR

PENETRATING LIGHT, NO LIE OR ILLUSION

CAN REMAIN. KADORTO'S MOTIONS BECOME

JERKY, AND SMOKE BEGINS TO POUR OUT OF

HIS KNEES AND ELBOWS. HIS HEAD POPS

OPEN, AND A SINGED HIGH PRIEST CLIMBS

OUT OF A CONCEALED CONTROL CABIN.



NOW YOU SEE THE REAL TRUTH! KADORTO IS

A FAKE, AN INVENTION OF THE PRIESTS,

A CUNNING DEVICE TO PERPETUATE THEIR

SOCIAL POSITION AND CONTROL OVER MEN!



YOU LAUGH AT THE RIDICULOUS SIGHT OF A

HIGH PRIEST WITH HIS ROBES SMOLDERING.

IT FEELS GOOD TO BE ALIVE. YOU TAKE OUT

THE AMULET, AND IN THE LIGHT OF THE

KRIS, YOU SEE IT FOR WHAT IT REALLY

IS: A DANGEROUS TRAP FOR THOSE UNWARY,

A JOKE OF THE GODS.



FOR IT IS NEITHER GOOD OR EVIL, BUT

FASHIONED OUT OF PURE CHAOS. YOU VOW

TO "RETURN IT" TO ITS MAKES, AND YOU

ARE SURE THE KRIS OF TRUTH WILL AID

YOU. BUT THAT CAN WAIT FOR TOMORROW.

TODAY IS TO BE ENJOYED!



OUTSIDE, INTO THE BEAUTIFUL SUNSHINE,

YOU WALK. FEELING AT LAST FREE AND

ALIVE. YOU HAVE RETURNED TO THE WORLD.

YOU LOOK BACK AT THE TEMPLE FOR A

MOMENT, AND WONDER...



        HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN SOMETHING?



YOU LAUGH, FOR YOU KNOW THAT YOU HAVE

NOT. YOU ARE MASTER OF YOUR FATE, AND

THE WINDING PATHS OF THE TREE OF LIFE

ILLUMINATE THE SHAPE OF YOUR DESTINY!



        *  *  * CONGRATULATIONS *  *  *



YOU HAVE RETURNED. YOU HAVE FOUND THE

PATH OF FULFILLMENT! GIVE US A CALL AT

(315) 393-6633 AND TELL US ABOUT IT!
