Is there by any chance a guide to what the different items do in the game?
I know 'Cloud' items give you teleport, while 'Serpent' items are healing, and I read about the potions as well somewhere, maybe in this thread.
But I just acquired myself a Battlehorn and I have no idea what it does. My Troubadour is currently using a Lyre which grants him a +2 to constitution, but I would figure that Battlehorn is better although no stat changes occur when I equip it...

None that I've ever seen, and I've still got the original game contents (though I discarded the cardboard box years ago). I did write out a few item effects, however, which I found with my old manual, just now:

Gold Helm: Forward/Missile
Chaos Helm: Forward/Live
Dragon Potion: Regenerate/Speed/Antimage
Serpent Helm: Heal/Surround/Heal (nice one!)
Cloud Wand: Teleport
Frost Helm: Surround/Paralyze
Holy Helm: Surround/Thrall
Amber Wand: Missile Damage
Angel Helm: Teleport/Speed
Dragon Ring, Blood Helmet: Surround/Missile
Amber Staff: Regenerate/Speed/Antimage/Surround Same
Dragon Helm: Surround Disrupt
Dragon Staf: Missile/Disrupt/Surround/Disrupt
Arcane Mandolin: Surround/Missile/Disrupt

That's it. Hope that helps. The best thing to do is remember that no item in the game uses AD&D style rules, and every magical item employs some combination of the runes in the game.

EDIT: One point to bear in mind. The final boss is ridiculously over-powered and over-sped. It's just not worth facing him, in my opinion, and a sad way to end an otherwise excellent title.

Did anyone ever import their characters into "Worlds of Legend: Son of the Empire"?
It should work but I never tried it...

I am stuck in the Dark Tower on level 2 in the room with the four doors that have to be opened by hitting damage tiles on a separate island on the side of the room. I can get the first three doors open, but I can't get that last door open! I remember this was the part I stopped at when I was younger for like a year before I picked the game back up and somehow figured it out. Anybody know what spell I need to cast to get the &*%$ door open?

SPOILER!!!!!!! EDIT:

We have a spoiler tag (see the "panel with question marks on top" icon). Edited your post accordingly.

Even if I block three tiles (destination tile and both adjoining ones), character that enters a teleporter in front of the chest still gets teleported. So I assume the same thing would happen when those tiles are blocked by monsters.
Or, perhaps there's a certain number of tiles to be blocked to make the chest teleport disabled. But that would be really tricky to gather so many monsters on them.
Anyways, I'll try your advice. Thanks. (Don't have the paralyze rune yet, though...)

I just finished Trazere and I'm trying to import the characters into WOL, but it won't work for me. I don't know what to do in order to get them to transfer over!! If anyone out there has any ideas for me, I would greatly appreciate them.

P.S. Thanks to Luchsen for helping me out with the spoilers. I am quite new to these forums and I know very little about posts and their etiquette. I will try to be more cognizant in the future. :imsorry:

When I originally played Trazere/Legend and Son of the Empire back on my 486 you had to copy the Trazere save into the Son of the Empire directory (not sure what sub directory, but probably the save one). Hope that helps.

Hey, thanks for this website, this is my first post here (yay for captain obvious)

This game is one of my favorites from when I was 14 or 15 years old. Talk about rough figuring the puzzles out. I may still have the original install floppys somewhere, however my PC doesn't have a 3.5" drive anymore.

I have basic knowledge of how to use DOSbox from reading the faq's and tutorials, and have used it on quite a few games. I used to be a DOS junkiee back in "the day" man that makes me feel like I'm getting old.

I downloaded this one and extracted it, but when I try to run it in DOSBox, it tells me "Hardware configuration has changed, Please reinstall"

Does anyone know where I'm screwing up at?

I'm running DOSBox 0.73 (latest version at time of this post) and windows XP

Thanks much
-Yaz

Redownload it now, and run setup first.
