Phantasie is a fantasy game from SSI which combines the elements
of Ultima and Wizardry. The object of the game is to defeat the Black
Lord and end the reign of terror of the Black Knights on Gelnor. In
order to destroy, the black Knight, you must obtain 9 rings and 4
runes from the dungeons and towns of Gelnor.

NOTE: Complete these dungeons in the order that they are listed.
Magic Pools are pools that enable you to eventually get the Water
Rune from dungeon 05. They are located in different places of Gelnor,
and you must immerse all of your characters in each one.
MAGIC POOLS LOCATIONS
01 Near Pineville
02 Near Trollport
03 Near Phantasia. This is the trickiest pool to find.
It is in the water and you must look for a discrepancy
in the waves to find it. It is on the same screen, but
is NW in the lake surrounding Phantasia.
Scrolls: are items you will find in some dungeons which will be very
helpful in the game. They give hints, and general history of the
object. You read the scrolls by U)sing them at a town. There are a
few scrolls which you don't find in the dungeons. They are: Scroll 8
(buy at Pelnor in the beginning of the game), and Scroll 18 (which is
the scroll given to you by Filmon the Sage at the end).
The Runes: are items you need to complete the game. You need all 4
runes (Air, Earth, Fire, Water) to pass the tests of the gods at
Mt. Olympus and obtain the God Rune which will enable you to enter
The Rings are also items that you need to complete the game. You need
all 9 rings to pass the test of rings at Mt. Olympus to obtain the
01 Air Rune, scrolls 1-3, 9
02 Earth Rune, scrolls 10, 11, 20
03 Fire Rune, scroll 5
04 scrolls 4-5, 12, 14, 19
05 Water Rune, scrolls 6, 7, 13, 15
06 Rings I-III, scroll 17
07 Rings VII-VIII, scroll 16
08 Scroll 1, rings IV-VI
09 God Rune
10 Wand of Nikademus, Black Lord, Dragon Kings, Divine spell
There is a library in the South-East in which Scrolls 1,2, and 3
can be found. To the South West lies Kilmor's room, in which Scroll
#9 and a cache of weapons lie. Etched on the wall of this room are
the words 'NIFLE SCRO'... They will be needed later. The most
important item to be found in this dungeon is the Air rune. To get
this, you must do two things. The first is to press a button in
mid-west portion of the screen...(Note: there are 2 buttons, one of
which sets off an alarm). This button opens the gate to the Air rune.
Then, travel down to the Southernmost part of the screen and follow a
corridor along the bottom and up the west side... At the end of the
corridor you will find a lever... Pull it to open the way to the
exit... Then, in the North-west part of the screen, you will find an
old man... Talk to him, and he will give you the Air rune.
You find the Earth rune in this dungeon and quite a few scrolls.
When you encounter the old man, ignore him and he will reveal a
secret passage to the south. Buy the secret from the orcs for it
enables you to get a scroll from the trolkins. None of the coffins
along the walls are important. When you encounter the dwarf, say
"NIFLE SCRO". The key at the bottom of the dungeon enables you to
open the door that has the lock that no one can pick. In the room with
the impassable monks, there is a secret door on the east wall leading
to the high priest which you must talk to and obtain scrolls from.
This is one of the hardest dungeons to map because of the many
twists and turns in it. A little bit South and East of the entrance
lies the Fire Rune. After slaying 2 Fire Elementals, it is yours. It
will now allow you to travel to Dungeon 2 and burn the box to get the
Earth rune. In the North East portion of the maze can be found a
warrior. You have to go through a secret door and a small portion of
water to reach him. He carries some good weapons and Scroll #20. In
the South west portion, there is another warrior, and he carries
Scroll #5. At the Southern part of the maze, you will find two people
who need to be rescued. Rescue the man, not the woman. He is the
uncle of Lord Wood and he gives you the phrase 'Straticon Uble and
48'. This will be used later. When mapping this dungeon, it is
important to remember that whenever it seems as if you are trapped
without an exit (such as in the Arena) you should search for secret
doors to make your egress...
It is in the form of a town. In the North west, you can find a
Scroll shop... When asked if you want to buy 3 scrolls, say yes (they
are only scrolls 1,2,3, but if you don't buy them, the man won't let
you into his shop)... There is a secret storage room that lies
through a secret door. In it is a chest holding Scrolls 4,5, and 14.
In the South west portion of Woodville lies an inn. In Room 1, Kilmor
can be found. Tell him 'Niscottan says hello', and he will give you
the Sacred number 79. Another Sacred number,45, can be found in the
hall of records in the middle of Woodville. Now we go to the temple
in thE mid-West portion of the town. Go west until asked to press a
button. Press 7, and then go west again. Press 9 to finish entering
the number 79... Do this again for the number 45, and also for the
number 48 that Lord Wood's uncle gave us in the phrase 'Straticon
Uble and 48'. Then go to the priest to the west and say 'Straticon
Uble'. He will give you Scroll 12. The two other Sacred numbers
opened up a normal door in the top of the fountain by the entrance,
and a secret door in the bottom of the fountain... The top door leads
to a few tough battles and a God Knife, while the bottom door leads
to Scroll 19.
In the dark closet, there is a secret door in the NW corner.
To pass the tiles, go the directions given to you in the closet:
SWWSSESSWWWSSEEEEENEEE. To enter the room of the Pools, you must have
entered all three pools. Within this room, is the water rune.
Search for the secret door on the west of the great hall leading to
the key that opens the jail cell in the bottom of the dungeon.
Almost as soon as you enter, you will be teleported to a jail
cell... There is a secret door in the south wall of the cell, and a
few steps south of that, there is another secret door in the west
wall. Follow this corridor to the west until it comes to the Secret
Control room to the South. You will find 3 levers to pull. Lever 1
opens your Jail cell. Lever 2 opens a door out of the arena. Lever 3
opens the magic door in J.R. Trolkin's room that guards Rings 1,2,
and 3. (J.R. Trolkin's room is to the east of the Control Room)...
Return to your Jail cell and go through the newly opened door. You
will find a guard room. A corridor to the North will lead to a room
with a key that will let you out of the castle. There is a library
with battle maps to the South East of the Entrance, and it holds
Scroll 17. The door blocking the exit can be opened by the
To enter this town, you must have a Minotaur character in your
party. This can be obtained by generating Random Characters until
a Minotaur comes up. Then, just replace your weakest character with
the Minotaur. (Note: The Minotaur does NOT have to be alive, so don't
worry if he dies, because he certainly will...). You will come to a
priest who will ask you what the password is. You merely reply 'REVEN
TONEM' (which was obtained from Scroll 19) and enter. If you don't
want to talk to him, there is a secret door on the East wall just
before you come to him. You will be in the main temple. Take the 3rd
corridor on the East wall of the temple. Deface the statue you find
in there. Then go South into the Hall of Caskets. Open the 3rd door
on the West wall, and get the key. Go to the South West corner of the
main temple then and go South through the secret door (which was
opened by defacing the statue). You will find a library with Scroll
16. Then go back to the 2nd corridor on the East wall of the Main
Temple. Open the door with your key. From here, you can go to the
jail cell at the bottom of the screen. You can get a key from Kilmor,
who is in the second cell. Go back near where you opened the door
with the key, and you will find another door. Open this door with
Kilmor's key, and enter the room. Get Rings 7 and 8, and go North
through a secret passage to exit, or else battle your way through
many monsters if you'd rather.
This dungeon contains multi-colored bleebs which give
you information to eventually find the rings. The blue bleebs
always tell the truth, the red bleebs always lie, and the green
bleebs sometimes lie and sometimes tell the truth. The blue pools
do damage, the green pools teleport, and the red pools enable you
to access the lower part of the dungeon. You must enter all 3 of the
red pools, however. After entering all of them, you enter the green
pool in the center of the screen (a little to the left), and it will
teleport you to the bottom of the dungeon where there are many doors.
Don't enter the green door because it's a dead end. The blue door is
an exit, and the red door leads to the rings and the king bleeb. When
you get to the unidentified bleebs talking, push the green button.
The answers to the 3 questions to get the rings are: green, red or
Mt. Olympus is a fairly simple dungeon. All you need to do, is
enter all of the rooms carrying all 9 rings and all 4 runes, and
pass the tests of combat, rings, and runes (air, earth, fire water).
After passing all the tests, go to the south passageway and
get the God rune from Zeus by kneeling before him.
You need the God Rune obtained in Mt. Olympus to enter here.
In this dungeon, you must go the lower left to find a teleporter
that will teleport you near the black lord. You must destroy the gems
in the throne room, and not sit in the throne. There is a secret door
behind the throne. Attack the black lord and get his wand. Wave it,
and talk to Filmon the sage. Kill the black lord and gain the divine
spell. HINT: Use a confusion spell so he can't cast spells!
This is the end of the game! The divine spell is a mass resurrection
spell. You use the wand, the rings, and the divine spell in:

APPLE VS. COMMODORE
Shay Addams's QUEST FOR CLUES tipped me off that the Phantasie map
is rotated 90 degrees on the Commodore from the original Apple. It's
the same on the PC as on the Commodore. The monster attributes and
items all seem the same, however.
ABOUT THIS DOCUMENT AND HOW IT WAS WRITTEN
This document will not attempt to explain basic rules. You can find
manuals at project64.c64.org, www.theunderdogs.org, and likely many
other places I don't know about. I am largely concerned with details,
i.e. if you do X, Y happens, or the best/most convenient way to solve
puzzle Z is to do W.
Sadly there was no PC version of Phantasie, so I had to make do with
the Apple for data extraction. I mentioned the, err, quirk above and
every effort has been made to ensure that traces of it are ironed out in
The text map is actually for the Apple, where it is easier and more
logical to extract sectors than the Commodore. Yes, the rotations made
things a bit tough, but with appropriate fudging of variables(they'd
send my HS computer-science teacher into a tizzy. Oh well!) I changed
the Apple maps to look like Commodore ones. The dungeon maps are for
the Apple but when I ran through the game they equated over 99.99% with
This document tries to explore the details of the game, so it may be
light on overall improving your characters. A brief run-through showed
that the Phantasie series is really rather moderate, and it is
relatively easy to improve without getting squashed.
Theunderdogs.org and project64.c64.org have more detailed info as to
which items can be used. This list was extracted from the disk image.

Apple and Commodore statistics appear identical in Phantasie although I
may have overlooked typos--the major monsters, however, are equivalent.
As you go through the game, you will encounter several scrolls that
will give you hints as to what to do in the game. I've listed them in
their entirety but of course they can be major spoilers.

The introductory strategy where you create characters, pool gold, and
destroy them works pretty well. Of course with pooling, etc. they will
have some gold left over, but you can always withdraw their money from
the bank and split it up again. You'll lose some gold in rounding down,
but you won't need much to start.
If you can visit the pools quickly, do so. Each one doubles a random
statistic for each party member, then subtracts ten. At first you will
probably spend a lot of time shuttling between the first dungeon and
Pelnor or, alternatively, Pineville and the Cathedral(the first pool is
on the way there.) Give your wizard the lion's share of the experience
points so that he can get the transport spell. This will enable you to
zap around the country to important locations quickly. Remember to
check with the mystic for your score. It seems to be based on levels
attained as well as runes and rings found.
Running through dungeons quickly, resetting them, and trying over is a
good way to improve as well. It takes less internal game time, and you
will figure out where the forced and tough combats are. In addition
special items can be re-duplicated as you pass through again.
My blanket starting party for Phantasie is: 2 dwarf fighters, 2 elf
priests, and 2 elf wizards. Obviously in Phantasie I you will need a
character of a different race, but that is off in the future and only
temporary anyway. Remember clerics can develop offensive spells too, so
if they get low on learning, wait a bit until they can learn fireflash
3/4. The spell attacking every monster is not always useful as often it
does much less damage than the concentrated one.
Inns are usually a waste of gold, but later when you get rich and are
trying to get through a dungeon they're easier to walk back to than
towns. However, you won't be able to identify and/or sell your items to
improve your party.
Age probably should not be a serious problem in Phantasie, but it is a
nagging one, especially for people like me who get the creeps thinking
about mortality in general. I've included some tips on how to move
around the continent of Gelnor quickly so you spend minimal time on a
quest. It seems that time passes quickly in dungeons but each unit of
movement costs one day. Given this, it's pretty clear that you can save
a lot of time with the Town Transport spell. I've included a list of
important locations and the nearest towns with their numbers below to
help you if you wish to get somewhere quickly.
Important location | Closest/best town
"Beginner" dungeon | northwest of Gelnor(1)
Cathedral | southwest of Pineville(2)
Lizard Men's Caves | south of Greenville(3)
Woodville | west of Greenville(3)--in different sector
Lord Wood's Castle | south of Halflingor(5)
JR Trolkin's Castle| west of Splitwater(6)--in different sector
Bleebs' dungeon | east of Northford(10)--in different sector
Dosnebian Clerics | east of Splitwater(6)--in different sector
Zeus's castle | 1 east then south of Olympia(99)--in different
final dungeon | south of Pelnor(1)--swim to get there
Pool # 1 | southwest of Pineville(2)
Pool # 2 | southwest of Trollport(7)
Pool # 3 | east of Phantasia(8)
[these directions are for the Commodore/PC]
Here's a list of which towns to find where.
Coordinates are standard (x,y) with Pelnor in the far northeast.
Olympi a(99)-Astral plane, north side.
Here come the spoilers. They completely ignore the information you
need to figure all this out, so be warned this solution cuts stuff out.
The first dungeon you face will be relatively simple. Off to the west
you have a pair of rooms with a button and a lever. Pull the lever in
the west room, and that will unlock the unmovable door leading to the
room above. Talk to the old man, and he will give you the earth rune.
To the south there will be some information which will help you along in
In general you will be given multiple-choice puzzles which, if you
answer incorrectly, can be redone if you reset the dungeon. Better yet,
if you have save states on the emulator, you can check what each option
does(incidentally, this method helps when writing FAQs.) It cuts down
on the challenge of the game, but it also adds a different, powerful
magic to it. I guess.
The second dungeon may actually need to be saved for later. The
transporters behind the secret doors(experiment a lot by running into
walls) are annoying to deal with, but one will push you to the bottom
center. Just to the west is the air rune room. If you can burn the box
you will get it, but if you're not strong enough, go find the pools and
the other runes. To leave go to the end of the hallway.
The third rune is found in the Lizard Men's cave. It's right near
the entrance(south, east, south,) but you'll need to defeat two tough
fire elementals, each in a separate battle, to reach the person holding
The fourth rune is the water rune. It's in Lord Wood's castle and
is rather tricky to pick up. You need to have visited the other three
pools aboveground first. For one you'll have needed to cast town
transport to Phantasia(8) and then stepped on the square which looked
different from the rest of the sea. If you can, look in the Phantasia
armory while you're there. You should notice a very interesting item.
In the meantime we've skipped over Woodville, which has some useful
and interesting clues. It's the weirdest of the dungeons, with a lot of
town-like activity going on, and you can even fight a deity if you are
silly or strong enough to.
Now that you've got the runes you can start hunting for the
dungeons. JR Trolkin's place is first. You'll get thrown in a cell,
but be on the lookout for secret doors(at some places there are several
in a row) and if you can get to JR's room in the bottom, there's a nice
treasure hoard behind. Rings 1-3 are there.
Now go visit the Bleebs. These guys throw tricky little logic
puzzles at you. Remember that the blue pools damage you, the red ones
activate green pools, and the green ones teleport you. Write down all
the advice you get and examine it for contradictions. You can eliminate
an assumption by saying "If bleebs of color X tell the truth, then Y,
then Z which is impossible." At the end you get multiple choice
questions. If you don't pass them, you're kicked to a one-way exit, but
you can just go back and try again having saved the dungeon. But you'll
feel better if you figure the puzzle out. Three rings here.
The Dosnebian Clerics--oh those tricky Dosnebians--are next. Here
you'll need a minotaur in your party. Don't worry if he gets killed.
Even having a dead minotaur will get you in the front door. The object
here is to find Lord Wood. There's a prison cell with three prisoners
at the bottom of the screen, and that's where you'll find him. You'll
get two rings from him, which makes eight from the dungeons, plus the
one you bought in Phantasia.
Now you have to go to the castle of the Gods. This is actually the
easiest dungeon in the game. No secret doors, nothing. There are six
small rooms adjacent to a circular hallway. In five of them, you walk
to the back and are told you passed the test, or you should be if you've
gotten all nine rings and four runes. In the sixth, there are two
undead monsters you need to fight. Get by them and you will have passed
the test of battle. After passing all tests you'll see a passage open
to the south. Zeus is there; pray to him, and he will reward your
party. You will now be able to enter the final dungeon without being
overcome by fear.
The final dungeon has some combats and some multiple choice, but it
is not so bad. You basically want to destroy Nikademus's wealth when
you come across it, and you'll need to fight through some black knights.
When asked, run after Nikademus. You'll need to defeat the Black Lord,
his henchman, at the end of it all to win. Filmon congratulates you
OVERWORLD MAP WITH SECTORS
The world map in Phantasie is divided into several sectors. Each
sector is 26x20, and you can usually see it all at once, unless there
are areas you haven't explored. There is no scrolling. The text maps
below will attempt to show what each square does. On the commodore many
important places have widths of two icons, like your party, but nothing
happens until you step smack in the center. The maps below point out
where "smack in the center" is.
In general, as you progress in a counterclockwise spiral, you
approach more important sectors. Of course you can cut across the water
when your players get to be good swimmers as well.
[space] indicates a void[Olympia] or a road[normal overworld]
. = minor vegetation
D = dungeon
T = town
^ = hills
| = magic barrier
: = desert
; = deep desert
P = magic pool
~~ T ~~
Well, there's not a whole lot to do here except go south from Olympia.
It seems that you always run into an encounter after moving a couple of
squares, with some trolls, goblins and orcs. If you want, you can flee,
but if you can't win that sort of fight you probably can't pass the
dungeon to the south.
You need a special spell to get here and to leave.

! = Charon's boat to cross the river Styx
Not much to do here. You can't swim across the river Styx so you have
to grope your way around for a passage. It's actually one east of
Olympia and directly south. The dungeon is east-south-east. Given that
you can't see the terrain until you walk near it, finding the dungeon is
not quite as trivial as it seems.
Woodville, purportedly a town in the lore but actually a dungeon by
the game's definition, rests on the west bank. There is also an inn
which doubles as a town; however, the only way to get here is to use
town transportation. The town name is Appleton, and it is town number
The dungeon has some useful stuff but you can't accomplish its main
purpose until you have explored other parts over land.
There may be a nasty combat in the hills but the monsters are still
manageable. Woodville, however, is much tougher.
t = town of Phantasia(#8)
You've probably noticed that a certain part of this sector is
barricaded off. Phantasia like Appleton in (0,3) can only be found by
use of a special spell. You'll want to stop in at the pool before
leaving to the south. The pool is pretty well disguised with all the
water around it, but it helps to know that it's against the edge of the
north boundary. The programmers cheat to let you out; once you leave
to the south you are standing on a barricade, making the de facto one-
way door work.
That dungeon on the west coast is J. R. Trolkin's. It's not an easy
one to go through. The inn is called "The Silver Star." This is also
where you get kicked after exploring the restricted area in (0,2).
The town here, Dragonor(9) is nice and all, and being by the sea it's
probably more beautiful than Trollport, a better place to walk to the
second pool from. I mean, I'm sure the residents are fine people. It's
just not a particularly useful place for determined adventurers to be,
that's all. The inn is called "The Lonely Inn."
"The Green Dragon Inn" sits at the three-way intersection, with the
lizard men's caves a few squares away. Greenville is in the northern
area just off the path.
This is a useful sector. The town, Halflingor/Hobbiton(depending on
the version you have. It's Halflingor on the C64/PC, which is
appropriate as there is no Hobbit character) is good to transport to.
It's very close to the dungeon, Lord Wood's Castle. The inn is called
"The Greenleaf Inn."
Splitwater(6), the town, is a useful hub for visiting dungeons
including one across the water. "The Eagle" is the inn here.
Trollport(7) is a good place to visit once. Be sure to dive into that
magic pool. Lots of scenic variety here.
p = signpost
Probably the second sector you'll visit in the game and a good one. The
town, Pineville, is a good place to stop off while you visit the pool
and the cathedral, which is the dungeon. "The Conley Inn" rests to the
Lots of desert here, and there is an anonymous inn on an island(no
name is given on the PC or in the data, either.) This sector can be
safely ignored. Even if used as a shortcut it is probably less time-
efficient than a transport spell.
"The Star" is the name of the inn. The very nasty Dosnebian Temple is
the dungeon here. Swim west for the closest town to it.
.....I .......~***** *****
Northford(10) is the town here. The inn is "The Stone Plow Inn."
Monsters are significantly tougher here, and at this point you are
entering the large peninsula where all monsters are significantly
tougher, curving around Gelnor's northern inlet.
By the way, Northford isn't very north, is it? That's what happens
when you rotate the map without changing names. Ah well, they caught
# = temple where you are resurrected/return as undead
I = "The Red Pony"
The town is of course Pelnor(1). The dungeon is the first one, the
generic underground cavern that seems to start so many games out. The
temple is a cool place to visit although there are a lot of undead in
the area. If you have dispell that is not a bad thing.
The final dungeon is here--once your party's good enough they can just
pop on over from Pelnor. Taking the possible water damage is safer than
walking, not to mention less time-consuming. There seem to be many
Black Knights in the area, and the other monsters are nasty as well.
............. ... T~~~~
This sector is not totally pointless, as the town here, Starville(11),
is somewhat close to a couple of dungeons. However it is not one of the
more happening places on the map, so I will let it pass with little
The dungeon of the Bleebs is tucked away in the south. You'll want to
become a better swimmer before you venture there.
The Inn is called "The Golden Unicorn."

The more detailed descriptions of the room may be described
qualitatively. In general we assume a corridor is one unit wide in
these descriptions, and a room is anything that isn't, although most of
the time it will be rectangular in shape. Rooms will have a description
in some corner; on that square, nothing special happens.
In general the text, extracted from the Apple version, will be in

quite so loudly.

OVERVIEW: This first dungeon is not a bad introduction. It contains
secret doors, traps, and doors to pick. There are also some treasures
and the originations of part of the story line. The general run-around-
and-touch-everything-to-sol ve paradigm is in evidence here, although all
you strictly need to do is to pick up the Earth Rune in the locked room,
so if you want to walk through quickly, you can do so. Later on you may
see some information in Kilmor's room if you don't want to cheat and
look in this FAQ. It leads to an information trail.
To get through quickly, go south, west, and south. The room to the west
has a button you should push. Now retreat but go north before you reach
the door. To the left you'll find the earth rune. Now you can return
south through the large hall and visit Kilmor's after shutting off the
valve at the end of the bottom hallway--if washed downstream just look
for a secret door to the south. You'll get items and the words "NIFLE

OVERVIEW: This dungeon has a few teleports and starts using secret
doors more heavily. It's not too hard to keep track of what teleport
goes where, and you also have the introduction of in-dungeon items(keys
to open certain doors.) You may even have to reset this dungeon, and
you may want to to pick up the treasures again. The main point is to
get the Earth Rune, but it's not quite clear to me how to. Once you
know how to get it it is easy to check if your party is good enough to
get in and out.
An Elegant Marble Hallway is where you begin. It's also seen behind
the secret doors by the transporters and leading to the stone room
preceding the High Priest's room. The big room on top is the small
elegant temple of marble with "priest's room with little of value" off
to the sides. Other passages are "hallway carved from stone."
On the right side is an empty stone room past the secret door, with
the teleportation room to the lower left and a small stone cell
In the northwest a coffin room is below the transport room, with a
small crypt at the bottom.
In the south you have a strange misty room, the maid's bedroom(with
three scrolls,) janitor's room, storage room with little of value, small
neat kitchen, and finally the bathroom.
In the far south is the natural cavern(after you let the old man
To get through quickly, go to the directly-south teleporter. The
first door to the left has the earth rune--check if you're ready for it.
The next door to the left has a secret passage where you should wait and
watch the man. There's a key behind that. Get the key and then circle
around to the right--a gnome is there and tell him "nifle scro" as you
found in the first dungeon. Hit the teleporter back and go to
teleporter C. You can unlock the door and go to the right to avoid the
priests and visit the high priest.

OVERVIEW: The main item in here is shockingly easy to get and to leave
if your party is strong enough. The item is the fire rune, and you may
want to have learned fireflash 4 before going in. Once you've learned
it, this is the sort of combat where you should use it mercilessly. The
information trail continues here, and there is some nice treasure behind
a secret door or two.
In southwest there is a twisty maze of rock and rubble below (2). Below
(Y) combat and the secret door is a passage carved from stone with a
fighting arena you can look into, followed by small bedrooms with old
cots, a training area with a glass case containing mostly wooden items,
and a sloppy, dirty kitchen. Then the northeast part, not including the
traps, is a passage carved from stone. In the southeast you have a
storage room with tasty food accessible by secret door and a small
torture chamber where you can get some info. There's a meeting room
with a large table far to the south. In the northeast there is also an
underwater passage leading to a warrior's skeleton.
To get through this quickly, go south to a wall, east, north, east and
south. Nail the fire elementals and get the rune. Towards the
southeast you can find a torture chamber where you should rescue the
man, who will give you information on what to do in Woodville.
Traps: rocks and gravel fall from the ceiling, floor caves.
! : fire elemental combat
0 : IN THE PASSAGE TO THE SOUTH YOU SEE A HUGE FIERY MASS AND A DEEP,
EERIE VOICE WHISPERS, "GO AWAY WEAK ONES."

OVERVIEW: Ah, Woodville. Once a great place, now it merely boasts many
ways to get thrown in jail or be attacked by deities. There are even
seedy alleys. Even the beautiful fountain is infested with monsters.
But there are a lot of scrolls here if you look around. This is one of
the more lively and detailed dungeons in the game. The rough alley in
back of the tavern is a great place to test your abilities. The
fountain actually has two entrances. An information trail started in
the original dungeon ends here with a mission to rescue Lord Wood. This
is probably the first dungeon you'll stumble on that doesn't have a
rune. In fact, the game can be solved without ever visiting it, but you
have important scrolls you need to read along the way.
In the southwest are two private homes with the inn. It has rooms 1,
2 and 3--Kilmor's in room 1 but 3 throws you in jail. In the southeast
is a jewelry store below a tavern--know what to steal and you'e ok. If
not you get thrown in the jail to the east. To the west there is the
Gelnor temple and above it Filmon's Pet Shoppe. In the northeast there
is a scroll shop with a storage room you can see and a secret one to
The Woodville Records Office is south of the fountain in the town
There are three different codes for the buttons. They are 79, 45 and
48. The third lets you talk to the priest, the other two open up secret
doors in the fountains. No critical items to find here but some good

OVERVIEW: This is pretty simply laid out. You have a cute little maze
on the left with an important clue behind it. Of course it's convenient
that JR Trolkin has taken over the castle; those encounters you run
into make more sense that way. The final rune is here.
Traps: Boiling oil, pit with spikes.
On the left side of the elegant marble hallway you have Lord Wood's
Room above two master bedrooms. In back there's a large dark closet
leading to a clue and some scrolls.
On the right side is a messy library with scrolls everywhere, a
storage room, the magic pool keeper's room, and barracks with double

closet(lots of 'em here.)
Below the main entrance is a great hall and an ordinary kitchen, with
a secret door to

At the south is a detention area with four small cells; one has a
special lock. East of it you have a garbage pit with some fights. West
of it is a bit of a maze where you need to find the path to a storage
room with an important clue.
If you want to walk through quickly, the water rune is on the right-
hand side. If you wish to rescue the old man, go south from the
entrance and hit a secret door to the west. At the bottom you'll find
the key as treasure. You can also take a chance on the maze in the
corner, but there is only information with some gold there.

OVERVIEW: JR Trolkin's castle, once you are thrown in and trapped, is
more winding than it looks. There will be a lot of doors you can't open
and several you'll need to open remotely. Your main purpose is to get
to his treasure room where you can find three rings. Remember to look
for secret doors constantly. The JR Trolkin combat shouldn't be too bad
and overall this dungeon is pretty moderate and a good source for
treasure too. Just don't get too annoyed with the doors whose locks you
You start outside a large stone castle. There's nothing you can do to
avoid getting gassed and dumped in the jail cell. Secret doors are the
way to go here. A bunch of dirty stone hallways with secret doors may
lead you to some intriguing places. Generally if you feel trapped start
walking into walls and eventually you'll miss. Sorta like flying in the
_Hitch-Hiker's Guide_. Past the bloody fighting arena south of the
cells you have a monster storage area with dirty smelly barracks in each
direction. You can also see the arena viewing areas if you go off to
the side, but off to the south is J. R. Trolkin's room, with a trphy
room with human and elven heads for the un-squeamish to visit. Beyond
the trophy room is a weapons room--that shouldn't make you
uncomfortable, but the torture room beyond it may. There's also a
secret passage below leading to an encounter in a damp cavern.
Below Trolkin's there is some treasure you can't access until you've
been to the secret control room to the left. There's a large key in the
storage room to the northwest if you leave your cell and pass the
guardroom, which has a storage room with trapped barrels to the south.
To get through the dungeon quickly, after you're thrown in the cell,
find the secret door to the south, then push west as you go south. In
the secret control room, flip all three levers. Go east to fight JR,
south to get the rings, then push up. You'll need to go through the
arena, right, up and back left to the main gate.

OVERVIEW: This is one of the most interesting dungeons in the entire
series. The logic puzzle is really quite nice although I feel it may
have small flaws. There's relatively little danger here once you learn
which pool does what. There are green, blue and red bleebs, and I've
put a solution with full reasoning at the end of this. If you miss a
puzzle you are kicked to the square room not connected with the rest of
the place; however, you can reset and walk in again and take another
multiple choice. You won't feel as accomplished, and if you do so, I
encourage you to go through the reasoning that leads to the correct
answer. Or what should be the correct answer. Or consider why this
puzzle is a bit iffy, so if you missed the answer in the first place, it
won't bug you any more.
All in all, Bleebs are cool, and since we're never given pictures of
them, they feel that much more mysterious.
Red smoke and green smoke are the traps, even when you jump into pools.
The rooms are tricky to annotate here because they are so small.
Therefore I needed to settle on a new convention instead of a paragraph-
style description. I decided to annotate hallways directly in the map.
A capital letter below denotes the start of a certain colored hallway.
If there's a huge intersection the hallway will be fully labeled. In
addition the rooms have a marking in the upper left corner, or as close
as I could get. This corresponds with the key below. Lots of
If nothing else works, jump in all the green and red pools and
eventually you will wind up at the room in the lower left. Enter
through the left door and face the king bleeb. See below for the
solution to the puzzles which I don't want to spoil here. However the
right pool order is t, 6, w, y, u, 7 and z.

DOESN'T." 1-"BLUE" 2-"GREEN" 3-"RED"

I SOMETIMES LIE." 1-"RED OR BLUE" 2-"RED" 3-"BLUE OR GREEN" 4-"GREEN" 5-
"BLUE" The answer is 2 here.
[COMMODORE:] A blue bleeb says, What kind of bleeb would never say
that it sometimes lies? red/blue, red, blue/green, green, blue. The
answer is #5(blue) here as well, really, but the Commodore accepts 2.
WTF?!?! Obviously red bleebs could lie and say that. Green bleebs
could tell the truth.
Let's look at statements H-O. Even removing M, N and O from
consideration we can figure who does what. Assume each of red, green,
blue maps to truth, liars, and truth/liars. If not then you can always
assume someone may be a truth/liar unless a liar pins them as such.
** STATEMENT L with STATEMENT K means green bleebs can't tell the truth.
** Assume red bleebs tell the truth. Then green bleebs are liars from
statement H. Consequently blue bleebs must tell lies some of the time.
** Look at statement L. The green bleeb is telling the truth here, and
we have a contradiction.
** Therefore blue bleebs are the truth-tellers, statement J pins red
bleebs as liars, and green bleebs are "moderates."
Of course you could tell this from M, N and O(truth, lie and truth,
pinning reds as liars and using statement H) but this way is more
abstract and challenging.
Now for the puzzle of %/ ^/&. The red bleeb, a liar, says use the green
door. The blue bleeb, a truth teller, says avoid the blue door. So you
use the red door. On this occasion the durn two-faced green bleeb told
you a stinkin' LIE!!
Now for the first puzzle I disagree with. See T and U for the
-->The first bleeb is green. He can't be red or he'd be telling the
truth about his color. Similarly he can't be blue or he'd be lying. I
think you can also assume that you shouldn't push red since the whole
statement must be taken as a lie, but that's a fuzzy area. It's not the
-->The second bleeb is red. If he were blue, he'd be lying because
there are two wrong answers; "If I were red I would tell you to push
the blue button." However reds might tell you to push the red if the
green were correct or green if the red were correct. So reds wouldn't
necessarily tell you to push the blue. You're supposed to eliminate the
red and blue but the logic isn't at all clear.
Now "If I were red, I would tell you to push the blue button" is tough
to figure out. Is he giving instructions or just stating a fact? It
seems like the second, and if it is, then the blue button may be the
right one to push. It still works out. Remember, he's lying about what
he'd tell you to do--which would be lying. The double negatives kick in
here but we can't eliminate the green button from consideration either.
The last puzzle is relatively easy. See 3, 4, and 5 for the text.
**The first question you should know. We've established that it's 2.
**The second is a bit tougher. Obviously green works, but you may not
have noticed that red works as well. For instance you went through the
red door to get here. Red bleeb # 1 says "Go through the green door."
Red bleeb # 2 says "Go through the blue door." Both are lying, and they
**The third is not too bad either. "What type of bleeb would never tell
the truth?" The red. 2. But it seems that this answer was not
corrected in the translation to the Commodore, even though the bit about
putting a blue bleeb instead of a green one in the blue room was.
u < - > v
t = red pool that enables the pool at 6.
x = red pool that enables the pool at 7.
w = red pool that changes z's destination.
6 < - > y once the pools are activated.
7 < - > z once 7 is activated.
z - > large room with many doors(SW) once you've jumped in pool w.
(Note: dashing around into all the non-blue pools you find will
usually work. The general guideline is that blue pools damage you, red
pools activate green pools, and green pools may teleport.)
If pools aren't activated, YOU JUST GET WET.

"All right, you Dosnebians! Let's break it up in there!" Them
Dosnebians are tough customers--a surly bunch--and you'll need to bust
out the mad skillz to get past 'em.
OVERVIEW: This one is pretty nasty. First of all, the temple won't
allow you in without a minotaur. You probably haven't developed a
minotaur, so you'll need a new one, and he should probably be a fighter.
This effectively cuts your party down by one unless you want to spend
time building him up--on the bright side he can get killed on the way
here and they'll still let you in. There are a lot of red herrings, and
you may want to go through it twice. Figuring out which statue to
break(it's not obvious) or finding the short way to the cells is tough.
You need to poke around a bit to find a key. Then you may get in
trouble when you do pick up the two rings. This is the first dungeon
with black knights in evidence.
Guard rooms in upper left and lower right. Ordinary marble hallways at
the entrance and by the jail cells. Small stone hallways in the
southeast and past the secret door. There are four side chapels with
statues to the side of the main temple and a chapel with wall painting
to the south. The casket room can be entered through the southeast. A
secret door in the temple leads to a small neat library and a cold damp
stone hallway which continues past the prison above. The cell block
there has three small jail cells. Way east of the temple you have the
storage room, meeting room and guest bedroom on the left of the corridor
with priests' rooms on the right. A large dining room and kitchen face
each other at the bottom. There's a display room above them.
To get through, say "reven tonem" at the front door(if you goof, find
the secret door to the right) and circle around. Break the minotaur
statue and go to the lower left secret door. Follow the passage around
and go north after the secret door. Rescue Lord Wood(lowest cell) first
and then everyone else. Go up and the second door on the right has what
you want. You can leave through a door in the upper right.
Traps: spirit tries to take life energy

OVERVIEW: Zeus's castle is not terribly hard to get through. All the
rooms are easily visible, and your progress is pretty much determined
before you've even entered. There are six rooms, each with a test your
party must pass; only one of these is an active test. Once you pass
them all, the door will open to visit Zeus in the bottom part. Pray to
him(attacking is a bad idea) and you will receive the God Rune. This
allows you to enter the final dungeon without fear.
You have a throne room of gold and silver below the strange misty
It should be clear what to do from the legend, but if not, make sure you
have all four runes and nine rings. These will help you pass five
tests. The dispell undead test should help you pass the combat test.

2 - room with dirt floor, where you pass if you got the earth rune
3 - room of flame, where you pass if you got the fire rune

OVERVIEW: there aren't a lot of dead ends or pitfalls, but your party
had better be good because there are lots of demons hanging around.
Without the God Rune they won't get through the first door but then they
need to search around for the teleporter to the right side where they
must chase the Black Lord. If they rip up enough stuff they'll get to
him, after which they can attack him. Filmon the sage may help out if
you make a wrong turn.
Until the very end you walk through a bunch of dark eerie stone passages
connecting guard rooms. The far east has "inside a fissure in the
earth" and below it is a simple throne room. You are sent to a strange
misty room after you accomplish your mission. There's a teleport in one
of the lower passages that leads to a very linear endgame.
To get through this level, hang a left when you hit the wall. Keep
pushing down and left until you can't any more. The passages down and
to the right will lead to a teleporter. Fight through some more
combats, destroy the gems, gold and throne, and keep pushing up. At the
intersection you want to attack the Black Lord. You can go north to
recover the wand.

WAND AND DISAPPEARS.
l : After defeating the Black Lord, you are transported to Olympus and
read Zeus saying "WELL DONE, MY SMALL FRIENDS. YOU HAVE REMOVED A GREAT
EVIL FROM GELNOR. YOUR QUEST IS OVER, NOW GO AND REST TO PREPARE YOU FOR
THE NEXT ADVENTURE. I GRANT YOU YOUR FIRST DIVINE SPELL. YOU WILL LEARN
LATER HOW TO USE IT PROPERLY." [PC version has "in Phantasie II" tacked
on to it. This is a bit ironic, as there never was a Phantasie II for
the PC, only for the Commodore, which doesn't have this.]
Tsk, tsk. This section contains spoilers so please be careful.
First of all I should mention that cheating attributes up to a
ridiculous level can backfire. You may not be able to learn spells, and
training may cost 15000 gold for the first level; cost of training
varies with the abilities you've acquired. Improving attributes to 99
and skills to 255 also frequently caused the Apple version to flip out
when I went into encounters. I recommend 40 across the board and giving
one person 255 skills.
Even though the Apple does not work, understanding it will help you
to capture a wrinkle with the Commodore. I consider the starting offset
for each character to be at the place where the name starts. This makes
it easier to search for the character's name in a hex dump as the names
appear on the hex dump. I suspect that the information for the
character starts at 0x83 before the name itself. Each character takes
up 170(0xaa) bytes and the characters are often(about 170/256 of the
time) spread out over different sectors. On the Apple, sectors cycle as
start at y000 -> y700 -> ye00 -> y600 -> yd00 -> y500 -> yc00 -> y400 ->
yb00 -> y300 -> ya00 -> y200 -> y900 -> z000
(this is standard for BASIC and also assisted my text-mapping of the
game's various areas.)
If a character is broken in two sectors and you can't figure it out
just see where the previous/next slot's sector is and change the hex
value accordingly. For instance if a character's name starts at x36f0
and you want to change something x14 bytes ahead, d is the sector after
6 so you'd look in 0x3d04. However if the name started at 0x3610 and
you wanted to change something 0x62 behind, then e is the sector before
6. 0x3eae would be the byte to edit.
For the Commodore it is a bit trickier. If going back would cause
you to skip a boundary you have to, in addition to changing sectors,
move backwards another two bytes. That is because in each 256-byte
block the Commodore has two initializing bytes at the beginning.
Alternatively you can just move up from the start. In any case numbers
appear to be ac/54 away from each other instead of aa/56 away. In
addition, the sectors jump around a bit more randomly with the
Commodore. I created a bunch of characters named "AA01" through "AA21"
and was able to produce the byte values.
On the Apple, for characters 38-40 you have fire, water and earth
elementals. These characters are 22-24 on the Commodore.
Here's where to start the hacking in case you can't remember the slot

Here are the bytes to hack in a hex editor. Search for the name if you
forget the slot. Note the "from name start" negative values. I've
sometimes put notes there but if there aren't any just change the hex
byte to the desired value. I'd generally advise not giving more than
99(x63) as three-digit numbers could goof up the display slightly.

RACE: A value from 0x00 to 0x0f defines the race. Here's the table.
0 = HUMAN
1 = DWARF
2 = ELF
3 = HALFLING
4 = GNOME
5 = PIXIE
6 = SPRITE
7 = OGRE
8 = GNOLL
9 = TROLL
a = KOBOLD
b = ORC
c = GOBLIN
d = LIZARD MAN
e = MINOTAUR
f = UNDEAD
You can save a game, change to a certain race, and back, which may help
for certain puzzles.
To change a special item(less risky than outright editing) you can do
1) buy scroll 1(easy to find)
2) open up the image in a hex editor. Just after your character's
name there should be the number x79 with descending numbers after it.
That is scroll 1.
3) add to that number. To see scroll 14, add 0xd, i.e. put 0x86.
Save the game. You can now read scroll x86.
See my section on special items to get any other item you want. Of
course you can do this to more than one item at a time and even get ring
nine this way.
There is also a less technical process for duplicating items.
Shay Addams's "Quest for Clues" describes the process as follows,
although first you will need to make a backup "dummy" disk. If you have
an emulator, this is not hard, and in fact you can try this trick with
two backups first so you don't ruin your main game if something goes
1. enter town A
2. sell off the items you want to duplicate
3. teleport to town B
4. remove main disk, insert dummy
5. teleport to town C
6. remove dummy, insert main disk
7. teleport to town A
8. buy the new items that have mysteriously appeared in the town
You can bring a fighter over from, say, Olympia to Pelnor with just
the two month delay--never mind that he couldn't make it by himself!
The world of Phantasie is very modern. Not only do you have roads
well in advance of other RPG's, but there are banks. And they even have
bank fees! That's right. Every time you distribute the gold(which you
must do when you enter a town) the gold gets rounded down to the nearest
multiple of the total number of shares. In fact you may even find that,
if you try to split up 6000 gold equally among 6 people, you wind up
with 999 gold each. Too bad society isn't advanced enough to have
I've mentioned the Northford bug(when rotated, it's on the south
shore) and there's also a flaky scroll with a slight misdirection. But
overall they do a good job of porting everything over.

Shay Addams's _Quest for Clues_ book was invaluable when it came to
checking my work. I frequently referred to it and although I have not
directly quoted anything from it besides the duplication cheat, it has
still been a huge help and has probably influenced my solution in ways
unimaginable. At the very least it saved me a lot of time as a great
