Follower of Kadar

Reepicheep Zargnoth Adventures

< 7 | Index | 8 >

On May 12th, 2000, Reepicheep more or less accidentally became the first Monster (outside of a moderator run test monster or two) to become a follower of Kadar the Black, the Dragon Demi-God. In the interest of seeing more monsters follow Kadar, all will be revealed herein. In the interest of keeping the game fun for those who like to learn things on their own, I'll talk about it generally at first, and then more specifically later...

If you're interested in following Kadar, first and foremost you'll need to acquire a Dragon Flagon. Unfortunately, they're only found randomly as treasures, so you'll have to keep your eyes open, and get lucky (or borrow one from a friend). If you take one to an Inn, the Innkeeper there will give you all the hints a clever monster should need.

Those same clever monsters should probably leave this page now, as from here on out it gets very specific for the rest of us...

Possession of that Dragon Flagon lets you do two very important things, the first of which is that when you attempt to make Reptron Salve while you carry a Dragon Flagon, you'll magically make more than just the one you would otherwise. I found myself making anywhere from four to eight, though I can't say what determines how many. A nice, but unrelated to the Quest, second effect of the Dragon Flagon is that when you Use a Reptron Salve (assuming you've not previously used one) you'll gain two Skin Toughness instead of the one you'd normally gain.

In any case, you'll need to make yourself at least seven Salves. Having done so, toddle off to the nearest geyser, and Use your Dragon Flagon (if you just use your Reptron Salve, you'll get some interesting text, but won't really go into the geyser). We'll leave the flavor of what is inside for you to discover, but assuming you're tough enough to beat the guardians inside, you'll meet the spirit of a long-dead Dragon, and he'll tell you how to resurrect him. The whole journey through the geyser takes 200 APs, so be sure you have enough available when you enter.

Now you should know how to resurrect a Dragon. But we'll tell you in advance anyway, as its not an easy pile of stuff to accumulate. You'll need three things: a Dragon Statue of some sort, some Dragon Ichor, and a piece of a Dragon. For the last, a Dragonbone definately works, and a Dragonbone Necklace will work as well. Items actually made into something (like a Dragonbone Sword) definately will not work. We'll also note that you don't actually have to go back into the geyser again to do this, so you won't have to worry about making more Salves.

So what do you get out of it? More toughness, more badness, more muscle, more spell points, new and interesting blurbs. Funnest of all, a new spell, the effects of which seem to depend of which type of Dragon you actually made, or which you're closest to (at this time I'm unsure as to which). Reepicheep used a Silver Statue, and his spell did 30 points of damage to a Tawni Snake he met, so it is an effective spell...

Religious notes: As I write this, of the two followers of Kadar the Black, one is Kabukian, and one is Fuvite. The first monsters to get much of this information were Shroudovians, and it should be noted that when Shroudovians meet the Dragon they do not get the information on how to raise a Dragon, but rather a very unpleasant introduction to a Dragon's flaming breath. Apparently only Kabukians, Fuvites, and godless can follow Kadar, just as only Shroudovians, Fuvites, and godless can follow Yasmin.

There you have it. How to follow Kadar the Black in several easy steps. Hope this helps you out in your efforts, and please, if you don't mind, drop me a line with your results as you go. Some of this is certainly subject to change as the programmers fix a bug or two, and I'd like to keep it up to date. Oh, yes, and some will ask why I publish this when some people might want it kept secret. Well, aside from the fact that I share just about every piece of info I get, I most certainly do have ulterior motives. Careful readers of my various monsters adventures and/or well-informed people will understand this, but I'll just leave it at that...

Best of luck...
