Guide for Caverns of the Snow Witch – Guide / Walkthru

A walkthru of Tin Man Games “Caverns Of The Snow Witch”.

Intro.

Greetings adventurers! It’s a long trek to the forbidding Icefinger Mountains in the far north of Allansia this time. There will be no assistance from the constellations in this part of Titan, so there will only be swordplay this time. (and plenty of it) 
 
The evil snow witch Shareella is plotting to unleash a new ice-age upon the continent to further her ambitions of supreme rule. Somebody must find her lair in the Crystal Caverns and defeat her, before it is too late. Another great quest for the Analand Sorceress! 
 

Stats.

Even by Ian Livingstone’s standards this quest is extremely combat-heavy. There are relatively few branches in the path, meaning that the quest is longer overall, and even on the optimum route there is an almost relentless succession of opponents, many with high stats. 
 
In this adventure provisions are renamed “turkish delight” rations. (Presumably a nod to “Narnia” by C.S.Lewis.) They are used in the usual way and still restore 4 sta each. 
 
In Adventurer mode this quest will be tricky unless your initial stats are high. 
 
In Hardcore Hero mode, even with the best possible initial stats, this quest is brutally difficult to the point of being statistically almost impossible. 
There is an early encounter with a skill 11 opponent (which you will be lucky to survive) and it doesn’t ease-off much thereafter. Your three turkish delight rations will be gone in no time. 
If you choose the potion of strength to counteract the dearth of turkish delight rations, your luck will run down quickly, leaving you highly likely to fail critical luck tests later on. 
If you take the potion of fortune to restore your luck when you really need it, your stamina will surely fail during the succession of tough battles. 
 
(The only other FF mission which i have encountered so far which is this tough in H.H. mode is “Trial Of Champions.”)
