[Big game, may take a while to load]
See how the epic story of Marcus III, noble Knight of Adamantia, began. Put on your armor, grab your sword and face with courage the mission that turned a young squire into a powerful Knight of the Diamond Order.
If you have been hurt, or you have cast many spells then you can use potions to restore your life and mana points. You will notice that if you rest, (meaning you don't walk around and don't attack anyone), your life and mana points will slowly restore themselves.
The type of the attack you do will change depending on the equipment you select. Take care as some tough enemies (bosses marked by a red circle round their feet), can resist some kinds of attack.
All tasks still to be finished and the missions you have already completed will be recorded in your Journal (or Log).
Fighting and solving quests will give you wealth and experience points. These points will raise Marcus's level.
When achieving a new experience level you will receive "bonus points" that you can distribute between the characteristics and abilities of your character. You will also gain a "Special Ability Point" that will allow you to learn a new “Special Ability”.
During your adventures you will conquer, buy and trade great treasures and equipment. To evaluate them and to discover their powers, carefully read the pop up messages that appear when you select them in your inventory.
MOVEMENT AND INTERACTION
As you move your mouse pointer around the world you will notice that it will change its shape depending on the actions you can do.

Fight: When you move the pointer over an enemy the pointer will change to a sword. Just click on that enemy and you will move to attack them.
Collect objects: When you pass the mouse over a collectable object the pointer will change to a hand. Click on the object to collect it. Remember though, the space in your backpack and your strength aren't unlimited!
Dialogues: If moving the mouse over a character shows a dialogue icon, then you can have a talk to that character. Just click on them to start talking then click again to continue a dialogue.
Equipment: Access the inventory screen by pressing ‘I’ on the keyboard, or by clicking the inventory icon on the interface. You can drag and drop objects from your backpack (right side of the window) to the equipped item slots (left side of the window). You can only place scrolls and potions inside the 9 fast access slots.
Passing the pointer over an object in the inventory will show a pop up that explains its characteristics.
Shop: When you find a merchant you can trade objects and equipment with them. Click on the merchant and you will open the shop window, which shows items available to buy on the left and items you can sell on the right.
- To buy an item you simply have to drag and drop it from the merchant's wares to your inventory.

To equip a special ability, go to the Abilities book then place the ability you’d like into one of the slots on your belt (bottom part of the screen).
Remember that if you want to un-equip a special ability from the action bar the Abilities Book must be open!.
Inside the game, click on the special ability icon on the action bar to activate it.
