The set is "complete". This is my first set, so I'm expecting plenty of bugs. I still have a bit more work to do and will upload a guide for some of the more tricky cheeves. Stay tuned.

Tips for making progression:1) Each artifact (2) hidden per area give 1000 gold which adds up to 6000 gold and a ton of extra food/keys if you find them all
25 Nov 13:50
HippopotamusRex
you have to dump them out of your inventory to hold key items, but its worth it because the game has no continues and you need to buy food
25 Nov 13:50
HippopotamusRex
do the gold worm room for the gold wizard statue right after the silver room because if you wait till you need it you'll lose the wizard fireballs and you'll probably lose a life on the 2 worms
25 Nov 13:52
HippopotamusRex
dont stack keys in excess of like 20 at the shop because once you get thief 3 you no longer need keys and any keys you have after thief 3 is a waste of food money

You can't lose any skills, when you press select and select a class: press left to select a lower class of that guild ;)
