Run like heck to the end of it till you find a locked door, and a corpse. loot it for a key, (and race back to the begging to avoid any unwanted attetion) to get out of this place, reverse your steps back to the beggining, and type Ent 1. (or ent pass) (it will put you back outside) Then find that same gate you passed by earlier. Unlock it, and enter, then quickly lock it to keep others from entering. This place is safe somewhat to regen in just stay away from the warriors. When you're ready, tour the city to get your bearings. Then go to each corner of the city, and go up to find a paytron guard. they are easy to kill. they dont use magic, but are in !magic rooms/tunnel rooms. Once they are dead, go back to the city gates and go 2es and get a key from the wooden chest. then go back to the city gates again and go 5e open door south, unlock door w. then get vial shelf. (this will be used to blow up the rubble infront of the library). now go back to the city gates and go 3se and type "put vial rub" and quickly move 1w to avoid getting hurt by the explosion. then enter the library, and go all east and type get all book. you will teleport to a hidden bookcase under the one you were just at. get a book from the hidden bookcase, and then get the key from that book. leave the library, and go back to the city gates one more time. from here, go all east till you pass four sets of runes on a door. in this dead end room, unlock the trap door under your person, and prepare for the hardest hitting lab mob in the game. Suav hits hard for one reason...the UBER SWORD he uses. expect to be hit around 75-90 dammage per hit(not sanced) and when you flee, he has 2 diferent flee prog's. one will be, "your body and mind are seard with white hot flames" (or somthing simmiler) this means you just lost a heck of alot of mana. his second prog is a dammage flee prog. "you see a flash of bright white light". although this trig only works around 15-35% of whatever hp you have, so dont attack him till you have at least 40% hp every time.When he dies, loot his corpse for a key, and a good bracelet. Then follow the path that you had unlocked earlier all the way to a cell. this contains a prisoner that was locked up by the paytron guards. Even when you free him, he will suspect you of alerting him to there presance, so he will also fight you as well. He backstabs and has sanc, does scan hunt/reg hunt. kill him to get a seal from him. now make your way back to the outside of the city, past the gates, and go 4s and look for the ^^ symbols again. enter this fimmiliar area, and make your way to the stone door again, and type "put seal ind" to open the door, and then obtain your soul stone from the alter.
