Elika: Do you think I wanted any of this!?
Prince: Well, what do we do now? Presuming the Great God of Darkness doesn’t just squish us flat...
Elika: He can’t have escaped yet. Not fully. The Temple must still have the power to contain him. Something happened to the Fertile Grounds. If we can get to them we might be able to stop Ahriman escaping.
The Fertile what?

Follow the path and have another of these endless
discussions with hers when you will be asked to (pres LT when you see the talk
Prince: There’s nothing here for us.
Elika: We must get to the Fertile Grounds. We are wasting time.
Prince: What are these Fertile Grounds?
Elika: They feed the Temple. Give it the Energy it needs to hold Ahriman trapped. I don’t know. They were constructed a thousand years ago after Ahriman was imprisoned. Now if you want the guide tour, can we wait until after we’ve re-imprisoned Ahriman?
Prince: You don’t know what will these Fertile Grounds do?
Elika: We have to get to them, please just go on.
Prince: Have you got a Plan B in case this doesn’t work?
Elika: I’ve not got to Plan A yet.
Prince: Then where are we going?
Elika: To find Plan A.
Prince: Ahriman, can’t we just kill him?
Elika: He’s a God...
Prince: How long have we got?
Elika: If the Tree is still holding him... Hours... Moments maybe.
A discussion in front of the direction they’ll have to follow
Is there anyway out of here?
Elika: Other than the way we came in?
Elika: No, there’s not.
Prince: Terrific. So what’s with your Father?
Elika: So what’s with your Donkey?
Prince: Do you know how hard it is to find a good Donkey? Good Donkeys are hard to find.
Elika: I’m beginning to worry about you and your Donkey.
the soap goes on...
Prince: If Ahriman is trapped, how can we hear him?
Elika: He’s not escaped, what we see and hear of him... That’s just the little that can be heard through the prison bars.
Prince: So you lived here?
Elika: Yes, lived, grew up, it has been my life.
Prince: If you are a Princess... where are all your people? Was it Ahriman, have they been turned into those Monsters?
The Prince needs answers
Where did they go?
Elika: Beyond... Into the desert.
Prince: You don’t know, do you?
Elika: They deserted their duty. They left the thing they’d pledged their lives to.
Prince: These people that left, that had pledged their lives, they came here, or they were born here?
Elika: The Temple is the duty of our people.
Prince: How can you pledge your life to something if you don’t know anything else? That’s not a choice.
Prince: Let Ahriman free, or protect the world from him... You’re right: there is no choice. Why are you doing this?
Prince: Helping me? Because there’s no way to get out of here...
Elika: Why “are” you doing this? It’s not, you’re not doing this for me, are you? I’ve seen you looking at me. I recognize that look.
Prince: Hey, you’re cute, but not stay to fight a dark God cute.
Elika: Would you have helped my Father if he had asked you?
Prince: He’s not that cute either [Sorry, gays!]
Elika: I just want to know that I can rely on you. People can... Well they can...
Prince: And you have a lot of experience with people?
Elika: I have experience of men doing stupid things for women.
Prince: Well, I only do stupid things for myself. You’re an attractive Lady. [here we go again]
Elika: I’ve got a brain too [typical answer of a flattered girl]
Prince: It’s a pity you’re wasting both.
Elika: And you’re the person to lecture me on that?
Prince: I have looks and brains then do I?
Elika: One rely on too much, the other you don’t use at all [ouch!]
Prince: There’s nothing wrong with good looks? [we’ve seen better, mate, but you’re looking OK]
Elika: Gold Glitters, but it’s what you buy with it that counts.
Prince: What have I got myself into?
Now run left of the door with the two golden pillars.
Run to this entrance
And watch Elika turn electric blue in the Prince’s arms
a similar vision like we’ve seen at the beginning of this Story:
The white Tree...
of bones will become visible and Elika and the Prince will suddenly be
“beamed” to another place.
Beam us up, Scotty
Did they land on another place?
Can this day get any worse?
Elika: They’re the corrupted. Ahriman’s chosen few. They ruled here a thousand years ago.
Prince: That thing we saw, the Darkness that was...
That was Ahriman
must exhaust a new conversation (repeatedly pressing LT). You’ll see a talking
sign appearing in the lower left corner. Then press LT:
Notice the talking sign
What was that...
A dream? That thing we
saw, the Darkness that was...
Elika: That was Ahriman [haven’t we just heard that before?]
Prince: If we saw Ahriman in the Vision, doesn’t that mean it’s him creating them?
Elika: It wasn’t Ahriman. This is Ormazd’s power. It is the Temple, protecting itself.
Prince: Is that thing we fought in the
Elika: No, it was a Soldier of Ahriman. Some were trapped with him when he fell.
Prince: How many Soldiers is ‘some’?
Elika: No one knows. Some Scriptures talk of Ahriman falling with the four Corrupted and a thousand Followers.
Prince: Let’s hope they’re off by a few hundred. Do the Corrupted know where we’re going?
Elika: The Corrupted lived here when Ahriman conquered the City, but the Fertile Grounds weren’t here then. The Ahura built them to contain Ahriman.
Prince: This would be the Ahriman we could hear in the Temple? They know where we’re going. What are these Corrupted?
Elika: Ahriman’s chosen. They sold their Soul to him in return for rewards. They will fight for him, they will fight to be free.
Prince: The Corrupted sold their Souls. What’s the going rate? [now isn’t this funny?]
Most who stood against him were killed or
turned into the Creatures we’ve seen. Even some of those who sold themselves
into service just because of some Ahriman’s Creatures. The Corrupted were
different, they retained some of their free will. Some of their Soul and Ahriman
gave them powers to fight for his cause.
Prince: The Corrupted are free?
Elika: They are still the person they were, at least somewhere inside they are but they are all Ahriman Puppets.
more Levels will now follow: the four main Areas and Elika’s Powers.
Each of the four main Areas has 12 Sublevels (the 6 Lands and their 6 Light Seeds). The sequence is randomly chosen by myself which I thought of as the most logical. If you decide to choose a different sequence this Walkthrough will be partly matching your Game. If you want to play and also read the Walkthrough, you are invited to follow this sequence.
