Wyv took out the reference to getting ANCIENT LORE in the Warriors Guild - which is not possible.

To beat the Serpent Temple Elevator Maze:

When you enter the maze from the Northwest Room, keep going straight. Take the west elevator from the NW room, walk down the corridor to the other elevator, down, STRAIGHT ACROSS the SE room to the other elevator, and down...through the tunnel and up the next elevator to the SW room.

To get back, retrace steps to SE room. When you get off the elevator there, turn LEFT, go up S elevator from the room, go down hallway, go down elevator at end to NE room, turn right and take N elevator to chute.

From the Serpent Master's room: the Rightmost elevator returns you to the NW room (to go get the Tome of Fire) and the Leftmost elevator returns you to the SW room (to open Elyssia's stairway).


bsftcs' Map:

The elevators marked with the same number are interlinked with passages.
(Furthermore the passage interlinking the elevators marked 2 can be accessed
from the passage interlinking the elevators marked 4, but not vice versa).

A= Skull lever
B= Skull lock
C= Elevator leading to passage descending to the Serpent Masters chamber
D= Elevators ascending from the Serpent Masters Chamber

To pass the maze: 1) Take the passages leading to the skull lever (A) and
flip it. This will activate the elevator C. 2) Go to elevator C. 3) get the
key from the Serpent Master and take the elevator (D) back up to the skull
lock (B). 4) Unlock the skull lock."

About the maps: The letters indicate secret rooms. The sign "X?" marks a
lock, lever, or button opening the secret room with the middle of the X
marking the exact location.

As you can see, the secret area C on the "Crypt 2" map and the secret room D
on the "Serpent Temple" map do not appear on the map on Volberding's site.

Spellbook Availability by Guild

Wizard Guild offers:

Blinding Flash
Circle of Fire
Armored Realm
Negate Magic

Thieves' Guild offers:


Priests' Guild offers:

Spirit Eye
Heroic Might
Healing Realm
Stink Bomb
Breath of Air
Create Portal
Call of Home
Twisted Master

AFAIK, the Bushi Dojo and Warrior's guilds do not sell spellbooks.

These are all I can remember. You have to be at the appropriate spellcraft level to buy the book. It won't be offered if you a) are at a level below the level required to learn the spell or b) if you already know the spell. It also won't be offered if you are in a class that no longer supports knowledge of the spell (e.g., Samurai by nature can't learn Spirit Magic, although if you already have Spirit Magic, you can continue to develop spells...but you won't be offered any more books in Spirit.)

Less boring method of CREATING a super good character.
Create - poll - delete - create - poll - delete... oh well. You can have more fun. Create a good warrior (a lizzord seems to be ideal, no intelectual abilities required so that it should not be a problem) and send him for ankhs into the crypt. There are 2 mummies in the coffin area that can drop ankhs. Kill them repeatedly until you get the ankhs. Identify the ankhs. Reset adventures. Repeat. As a side effect, you gain some Witch Sticks and perhaps some Bronze Cuffs and magical rings.
This method allows you to gain some ankhs before you start to create your real character and lower your criteria on it. For example: if you want a wizard that is able to gain any elite role available in Valeia immediately, you will need the following attributes: 9 10 10 9 - 11 9 9 12. The character is "only" 79 but it takes a while until you get 79 AND a favourable distribution of attribute points.
Well, the method will not work for large groups (figure out the number of ankhs you would need) but a soloist or a duo could appreciate it.

To get through the Boogre Caves shocking rooms, follow this map. Basically, A teleports you to 1, B to 2, etc.

To get from the main dungeon into the Hag's room area, take this path: A to 1, C to 3, H to 8, J to 10.

To get from the Hag's rooms back to the Main dungeon, take this path: G to 7, C to 3, H to 8, K to 11, D to 4.
