[5.1] Dissemination

Note : Before you start Dissemination and after you defeat the Dralks, it is very highly suggested that you back up your AUTOMAPS.DAT and MYCHARS.DAT files as in this stage, the game may begin to get weird. Walls may dissapear and there may be trash on the screen, unfortunately. This bug will not cause you any real trouble, but if it totally messes up, it's good to have a backup copy of the character data files. This bug seems to vanish after you defeat Aeowyn and do Finals.. however, it's better to be safe than sorry.

Q: How do I get into Dissemination?
The portal to this stage is in the Dungeon Entrance. Simply go to the northeastern corner of the DE and face north; a portal will open, allowing you to access Dissemination and later, The Gateway.

Q: What is the goal here?
This stage's purpose, mainly, is to provide adventurers with a portal to The Gateway. Many walls and statues here shimmer and shake, even though they appear solid. You'll have to dispel them with the Rod of Dissemination to proceed. To get the Rod of Dissemination, you must fight the Dissimenator, which you will get to later.

Q: Once I'm at the start of Dissemination, what do I do?
You must repeatedly visit the two Kaalroth brothers, Aoei and Ieoa. First, go to Aoei, who is located at F,15. Then go to C,4, face north and go through the door, then face west and go through the other door. Make your way to E,2, face north, and go through the door to Ieoa. He will teach you a part of a spell; now, go back to Aoei and he will teach you the rest of it. Now, go to F,13 and face south. Walk through the new door here, and from that point go 1 step south and 1 step west to fight the Dissimenator. You will receive the Rod of Dissemination. Use it to dispel all the "shimmerring" walls and statues and blast your way to L,4, where a wizard stands. Talk to him, then face north and teleport. Go 2 steps north, 1 step east, face south and dispel the wall. Then go through the dispelled wall, and then the teleport. Go 1 step south, 1 step west, and 1 step north, then go through the teleporter. In the next area, face east and dispel the wall, go through, face north and dispel the wall, go through, and take the teleport beyond to the ultimate challenge, The Gateway!

[5.2] The Gateway

Q: What is the purpose of this Gateway?
The Gateway is the huge portal that leads to different dimensions, which used to be guarded by the five Dralkarians. Now, the mad queen is trying to take over the Gateway and become immortal. You will be the only one with enough power to stop her; you defeated all five Dralkarians and made your way here...

Q: How do I get through?
First of all, you must get the Statue of Storm Giant. It is located 1 step north and 1 step west of the entrance. Then take the stained-glass window portal; you will be teleported to the ancient Gods' treasure room. Here you will choose a legendary weapon to fight Aeowyn with; the Sword of Ares, Bow of Eos, Neptune's Trident and Gaea's Flail. Pick your weapon, then head through the teleport. After doing this, go out of the 2-square "cubicle" you are teleported to, and head south. When you encounter the lava pit, use your new weapon to harden the lava. Then, head south and into an unmappable area, which is rather easy. Once you get out of the area via a stained-glass window, and you will be teleported to the very heart of the gateway. There are a lot of tough battles here, so cheat save often (see Tricks and Cheats). Follow this path, fighting all the battles, until you reach a stained-glass window on the other end. Take it into the last, ultimate pathway where you will finally meet your Fate. Simply follow this unmappable area to the Queen. Defeat her to win the ultimate prize...

Q: What do I get after defeating the Queen?
Step one step forward to the actual Gateway, the one that allows you to travel into different dimensions and different worlds. This was the goal that Aeowyn longed for; to become immortal using the Gateway and the five Dralkarian rings. You will get 8 million experience points, 3 points to each of your stats, a new spell, and a ticket into Choronozar's Demesne, which is your next destination. Congrats! You've defeated the evil queen and restored peace to Twinion and the Gateway once more. But there is another errand to do... you must go into Choronozar's lair and destroy him.

Q: I'm having trouble defeating the Queen. What should I do?
The reborn Dralkarians are your greatest threat here. They can hit very hard, even harder if they attack you at the same time. On the first round, cast Control and cross your fingers; luckily, (at least) one of the dralks will get controlled and you will not have to face so much damage. On the second round, Channel the dralks to greatly decrease their resistance against the Control spell; then cast control over and over until you get all 5 dralks, which you should usually get with 2 to 3 rounds of Control; if you have to heal, stop and do so. When you get the 5 of them controlled, cast Resist to defend yourself against Aeowyn's magic, the head for the Queen's Guards, which are even tougher to control than that dralks. Simply cast Curse on them and hack away with your weapon; 2 or 3 rounds should take care of them, if the controlled dralks hadn't killed them already. The Draco Lich is hardly any threat at all to you as it doesn't hit hard and has less than average magic. If it lasts, attack it, if it has already been killed by the dralks, go after Aeowyn. She can take quite a lot of punishment before going down; try casting Curse and then attacking. Backfire won't hurt as she has maximum healing ability. The dralks will kill a few of their own; finish them off with Curse and hack through them.
