Cloud Castle

Cloud Castle is aimed at high Medium and Expert level characters. The mobs in the zone start at around 50k xp each and rise to around 150k as you head deeper in. There is one death trap (marked DT on the map) in this serwers in this zone and there you should keep an eye out for Smirnug, the Ancient Dragon on Smirnug's Cloud (Sm) high in the air.

King Romeius of Cloud Castle is upset and a little moody and the puzzle in this zone is how to ease his mind. If you want to work out the puzzle yourself I'll just say that he's on the top floor, you'll have to work out how to get to him youself...

Entering the zone you find yourself At the gates (Ag). Two guards wait for you and one will have a cloud shaped key to the door to the north. "unlock gate north" and "open gate north" opens the way into the Castle. As you explore you should find your way down to the barracks and a locked, guarded door to the Dungeons - we'll come back to that - you'll also find that you can't go up the stairs to the first floor! How do we get to the King?

The answer lies in the kitchen. There is a lift for sending food up to the first floor and down to the barracks. "push handle" and "pull handle" move the lift up and down between the floors and use "enter lift" and "exit lift" to get in and out. If you make your way up to the top floor you can meet up with King Romeius and get an idead of his woes. The solution to his queries lies in his Queen's bedchamber. There is a hidden closet to the west of the Queen's Private Chamber "open closet" opens the way and inside the Queen's lover, Utugy is hidden, so you'll need sense life to see him. Kill him and take the love letter from his corpse and give it to the King. Romeius will reward you with a Titanium Key and you'll then need to go down to the dungeons to claim your prize.

The two guards in the eastern hallway (eh) have the dungeon key for the door to the east and the Stupid guard in the Dungeon Entrance (De) has the cell key. "unlock cell south" and "open cell south" will open the way to the south and once in the cell "enter crack" takes you into the secret passage. Keep going south until you come to a dead end by a skeleton and then 'push wall' to open the way south. Be careful running around the sewers as there is a Death Trap (marked DT on the map) to the south. You want to head over to the west where the Treasure Chamber of King Romeius (Tc) can be found, unlock the door and your reward awaits.
