Here you´ll find:

1. how to get the ending with both hammer pieces
2. how to get most of the achievements

I really just put in what you have to do for the Ending and the Achievments - there is much more to find, but i wont spoil that. I had a lot of fun running through it and having another adventure every time.

I´m sorry for all mistakes you might find, but im not a native english speaker.

Thanks for this guide.

I think it's better to cross the river at 25 instead of 24. Need the garlic buds from Yaztromo to deal with the vampire bats 29 ('Apotropaic Saviour' achievement), and can still get from there to 35 for the silver key, but it avoids fishman 24 and werewolf 28.

Great guide!
(Your map looks just like the one I drew about 30 years ago lol. Might even still have it.)

Excellent guide. However, to achieve Art Lover, one must enter the alcove on the way to the Demon Lord. This is a spot not really specified separately on the map.
