    monkey, In the next chamber there is the first boss, The Gaurdian. You should kill him first. To do this, you kill his minions( the smaller versions of himself ) and he will flip over. Now attack his unprotected stomach. You will have to repeat this a few times to kill him. After that, jump up onto the platforms and mushrooms( they should form a stair pattern) and follow them to the top, where you will find the Healing Draught. It looks like a Waters of Vigour potion, if you’ve seen one yet.

    To find the fourth chain for the treasure room, you have to go to the main hall. There is a chain hanging down from one of the balconies. Climb it. There are spiders, so either fight them, or put on the ring. Go to the left, and there is a ledge that you need to get on. Follow it and you should get to a balcony with a purple courage point on it. Keep walking on the ledge and you will end up on another balcony. Again, there are spiders, so be prepared. On the other side there is a chain that you can pick up.

    Btw: you can’t pick it up with the ring on.

    Hot Sauce, my suggestions for escaping/fighting the evil spirits are the following:

    Kill the mages(purple people) and archers first. Then escape to branches and/or vines where you cannot get hit. I suggest buying several Waters of Vigour potions before entering the level. The spirits are the least of your worries, however.

    ******SPOILER WARNING********

    There are two big boss battles coming up, so stock up on health potions and antidotes.

    the inside inormation level, all you have to do is move the blue box where there is a whirl pool. You have to cover it. Then all o a sudden the water is going to rise. Go all the way to the top until you get to some ropes. Wait untill a huge piece o wood keeps rising and jump on top of it until it is safe. Wait until you get to the top then jump back up where the dwarfs are.

    I’ve beaten the game a few times…

    the trick to the water room is to plan ahead. It isn’t too hard to set it up so that you can get to the snake lever and then get to the snake room without moving anything.

    Same with the eagle- and from the eagle it isn’t hard to get to the next room. all you have to do is figure out how to get straight across. not hard.

    after that part, however, is another wacky puzzle (laketown is full of ’em, i kno)

    where you have to place the right barrels on the right spaces to open the door. THEN there’s another sneaking area. Man, just give me fighting any day!

    Hope this helps,
