Various Cheats and Hints
Put one or two points into Pickpocketing and save the game at Rizzettes in Shrouded Hills. Pickpocket the key from Rizzette and sell him any item that is not identified. Go to his room to the chest by the bed. Open it and take out the item. It should now be identified.
To increase your alignment towards good, repeatedly give money to the beggars in the streets.
Keep multiple summoned creature:
Wait until you are over level 15. Summon any desired creature, then cast the level 15 magic reflection shield on the summoned creature. Delete the creature, then the shield. You will get to keep the creature until it dies. Repeat to build a group of permanent summoned creature. Note: The game may slow and crash if too many summoned creatures are kept.
In Tarant while on the second quest that Madam Lil gives you, when talking to Mr. Langley say that Madam Lil sent you. Then, choose either response (other than bye), then the one that begins with "(Menacing)", then say that you do not trust him, and finally choose "Okay (you take the coin) but I'll be back for the rest". After you are done, repeat this as many times as needed for free money.
Wait outside the wise woman's location in either Ashbury or Shrouded Hills until they have a large sum of money. Kill them and take the money. Make sure to leave one alive so you have someone that can identify your items.
Become a good pickpocket, then steal the key from Rizzette after dark. Note: Sneak into his room with him. Sell Rizzette either the camera or a clock part, then go into his room and steal the item back. Repeat this as many times as desired. Then, go to the Inn and ask the Innkeeper for a week's stay. Continue to sell Rizzette the item, steal it back, and sleep in the INN for the night. Rizzette will have a new supply of money every day.
Alternate battle after defeating Gang before bridge in Shrowded Hills
After defeating the Gang before the bridge of Shrowded Hills, you normally would go down across the bridge and fight a Gnome who asks your character for the ring on Preston (the man at the start of the game that dies in front of you). The Gnome is across from Rizetes Store and on the way to Doc Robets. When you talk to him, if you kill him he will not show up on the end of the bridge. Instead, you fight a villager that has a sword and the hexagon-shaped necklace that enemies have.
