The circus trick
Quest: The circus trick (not a part of the game per se)
Received from: none
Location: any of the circuses; Dragonsands
Special Problems: winning the circus game and avoiding the dragons
Difficulty: medium to hard, with some luck.
Description: In the previous quest’s chest, you should have found at least one item that boosts one of your stats enormously. I found the Atlas cloak (+100 might), so I will use that as an example. I put the Atlas cloak on my strongest character and souped him up with all the might accessories and spells I could find. Then he played the Might game at the circus. He won easily. After he won 8 golden pyramids, my party then flew to the Abdul Resort in Dragonsands to collect some of the game’s best weapons and armor. Easy right? No. The southern part of Blackshire and all of Dragonsands are heavily populated with Wyrms. Wyrms cannot fly and you can (or you can forget this quest), but in order to go from Blackshire to Dragonsands, you must land to walk across the border. Even if you land in an unpopulated part of Blackspire to cross, as soon as you appear in Dragonsands, you will more than likely face about 20 Wyrms from all directions; before you can cast Fly again, you are dead. The best bet is to fly along the southerly road to make the border crossing. Wyrms are not as frequent along the road. Unless you have amazing luck, expect to reload your game several times.
