Is there a search function on the page so that I can search for a particular word in all the Totem Tribe comments? Using "find on this page" only checks the current comments page and does not search the text in the spoiler sections.

[Edit: Try right-click "View Source" first, then search the content of the window that pops-up. All text, even under the spoilers, will show. -Jay]

Desperately seeking Eskimos on Scorched Island. Where are these guys? I have explored the NW part of the island but can't find a way to get into the snowy part where I figure they are. Had a Frost Tower kill the fire block but I'm hesitant to travel too far past that spot because I'm trying to avoid the Wolfies until I get the ice crystal (which is what you recommend in the walk-through).

The tips and advice on this web site are miles above other sites. Keep up the great work.

Thanks,

Oh. Never mind. I guess I thought it couldn't be that easy to get to the Eskimo.

Thanks anyway.

Take the left path leaving your village. About 4 or 5 steps on the island to the right there will be an opening between two sections of the mountain. Follow the path

Being new to the boards I want to thank all the wonderful people for all their tips and spoilers. Now I need help on one that I haven't seen asked on the boards.

I read the FAQ on the islands but can not figure out how to get the rune for the first door on the Lost Temple island. I have done the lanterns and gotten the 3 chests of gems. I have found and activated all the things with the colored balls and the runes on top. That is where I am stuck.

Could someone please advise me on how to get the runes.

TIA and Hugs to all

You must go to the round items (yellow round thing with a stick coming from it, hexagonal) in the island and click on them, they will show the image of the token to open the door and five colors. Go to the lamps and reproduce the colors. The lake will show the image of the location of the token. Then go there and click in the spot, until you got the token.

RainbowRoad January 26, 2009 3:53 PM

Amy,

Nobody is asking because the localization of the items is random and there's no way to know what items you have collected and from where.
Just go to the data files and paint it, if you can't find it.
Sorry, I can`t give you the answer.

GUARDIAN MOON PUZZLE

I solved the puzzle. The problem is that I have entered in the level a couple of times for a fresh start, and it initiates randomly (and it says so in the level file), so there's not a set of instructions universally valid.

I played with the lights for a time until I have all the lights on, except for an inverted T.

Like this

OOUO
OOUO
OOUO
UUUU

U for OFF.
O for ON

Then, I just pushed the two rows and voilá!!
I hope this could help someone.

The one set of buttons changes the direction the crossbow is aiming. The other set changes the distance the cross bow shoots. There are three mini crystal mountains that you can hit with the crossbow. Aim for and shoot each three times and the mountains will dissipate and leave some gems for you.

STUCK on Mist Island
Thanks for the advice. I didn't realize I needed to solve the light puzzle to find another bulb. Once I did that, the rest wasn't nearly as difficult as I'd made it out to be. Aruka walked right where I needed her to - the paths were much more obvious.

Truly a good game that can make a person so frustrated for that long! Thanks again! This site has some wonderful tips/help.

Thank you, thank you, thank you everyone who suggested that the way to defeat the enchanted skeletons and shades on Volcano Island is to

beef up the number of shamen and every other kind of fighter and go after them. All those shamen did the trick!

Now I have achieved victory but I have one little task left: to get the last fragment of the scroll of ice magic. I've managed 2 of the 3 puzzles but I cannot solve the one in the NE corner with the rune that says "one is good, two is better," or something close to that. Any ideas?

Again, thanks!

Hello to everyone!

I have read that to open the chest in RUINS of DREAM SHORE, you have to touch 9 rocks for them to vibrate and join the 2 islands together but what i can't figure out is how to reach the upper left side of the map where one rock is supposed to be there... towers and scouts aren't helping! Am I missing anything? PLS Help!

LOCATION OF SHAMAN MASK #3

Volcano Island: solve the bulb puzzles (3 of them) to get the scroll and give it to the man in the Hall of Mysteries, he will give you a Shaman Mask

[Edit: Cheers, Sas! I've just updated the FAQ with this info. :) -Jay]

Reply

I agree Sheri, Totem Tribe is definitely one of the best I've played in recent memory as well. :)

As for the Water Rune on Shark Archipelago, you need to solve the lighthouse puzzle to get that.

Take a look at the Totem Tribe FAQ, in the blue section above, in the section labeled "Shark Archipelago". There's a question: "How do I light all the Lighthouses on Shark Archipelago?" You'll find your answer there.

Reply

@clueless RE:chest in RUINS of DREAM SHORE

You need to send your scouts exploring and let them go through the portals. I believe it is the one at the bottom of the screen near the centre. Only your scouts would be able to get to it since it is only accessible by swimming.

@Mouse RE:Wolf Tribe on the Volcano Island

There is a settlement of their troops up the far right path. Once you have defeated them a rune, that you place in the door, will be in the rubble of one of the buildings.

@sheri RE:Shark island and can't seem to get the water drop

The lighthouse chest (the one that needs you to light all the lighthouses) contains the water rune that you need to open the gate/door.

Hello Everyone,

Please Help.

@Amoraluv RE:how many times are u supposed to do the circle dot thing on Worship Island?

The answer is once but the solution is listed below.

WORSHIP ISLAND GLOWING DOT PUZZLE HOW TO:

You need to place your people inside the 4 glowing circles. Scout flag in one, battle flag in one, build a temple in one to send workers and drag any person to the fourth. They must all be inside the rings at the same time.

There are 2 glowing circles on each side of your screen, same place on both sides. They are made up of 'dots' that seem to emit from the ground and rise up.

To open the chest that will appear you will need all 5 shaman masks in your treasury.

@renelle67 RE:crystal on the 2nd island

You need to complete a puzzle on each of the large islands before you can go any further. Completing a puzzle will give you a crystal. Read the guidestones on the second island for a clue as to what to do.

Answer if you want it:

Click on all of the dirt piles (kinda look like dancing rocks lol) to explode them. After exploding the last one you will be given the crystal.

Reply

@rnbabe RE:BIG shade figure, on the middle island & chest

CHEST ON RUINS OF DREAMSHORE:

There are 'singing' stones located on several of the land plots (same stones around the chest on Witch Island). Click on them all to turn them all 'on' and then you will be grated access to the chest.

KING SHADE RUINS OF DREAMSHORE:

You need to send your troops out to defeat the 4 groupings of smaller shades on the island. Once the largest one on each island has been defeated a black dot/orb will appear, click on it to put it in your inventory. Once you have all 4 go to the main island where your building are and place the black things in each of the brown stone figures. This will activate the pathway to the centre island with King Shade on it. Place your attack flag near any of the brown stones and your troops will transport over.

Rainbowroad,

Thank you. I found it. You where a big help. Thax for responding to me.

Hey guys,i'm stuck as i'm only at 86% of gems.TT
Are there any tricks to find the gems? I already know the spray-painting one but are there any more tricks,cheats or hints?

Reply

@Jenn RE:The only place I can't look properly is Lonely Iceberg

If you are missing %9 then you are missing more then what you will find on Lonely Iceberg. Each island is approximately %5 worth so I would have to say you are missing about 40 gems. Since there are no more then 21 per island there is somewhere else you need to be looking.

As for Lonely Island you do not need to clear away all the black. Move Aruku and Guru as close to edges as they will go all around the island and you will see gems laying in the outer clouds. You will also need to have the Sphere of Clarity, to activate the crystal orb, in order to reach the one spot with gems that your units cannot clear.

Reply

40 gems that much...? There are more than 16 islands! But I think i've completed Dolphin and Tetela.I don't think there's any gems on Mushroom island.Also I can't find any gems on Volcano.It's supposed to be the most number of gems on that island.

Reply

@Deborah RE:I have the scroll, but I can't figure out who to give it to

The scroll that you get for solving the 3 light bulb puzzles is given to the man in the Hall of Mysteries. If you pick up the item from your inventory and then on the building it should work. It won't work if you are missing any of the pieces, one fragment of the scroll is given per bulb puzzle solution.

Reply

@Jazzz RE:40 gems that much

40 was my guestimate for %9 but it should be something like that. There are 21 gems per island except for Volcano Island which has 20. If there is an island where you haven't found any then there is something you have missed.

GOING BACK TO PICK UP MISSED ITEMS:

Once you have finished Shark Archelapego and can send your scouts swimming you will be able to go back to previous islands and clear away the black in order to reach items on outer isles.
OR
You need to open all of the chests on Witch Island in order to get the Spehre of Clarity. Then go back to an island that has a 'globe', click on it to activate it and it will clear away the black from an area you cannot get to otherwise.

GENERAL TIPS:

Be sure you destroy all enemy buildings and blockades, complete all tasks for island dwellers, read and look carefully around all guidestones, check back to islands that you could not complete on the first pass to gather up what was missed.

Check for outer land masses since they can contain gems, totems and other items. If you spot a destroyed building on the edge of an outer land mass then build a tower there. It will take longer since your workers can't get to it but it is possible and the likelyhood of there being something for you is greater.

GEMS:

Count the gems as you pick them up since the number per island is 21. Only Volcano Island has 20 (or so I have read). Keep track and mark your figures down in case there was a part of the island that was inaccessible on the first pass.

Collecting gems after you have completed all tasks on the island is tricky since there is the likelyhood that you have built something on one and you will have to destroy your buildings in order to find them.

If you do not have version 1.02 you will not be able to find %100 of gems. When you start up your game and get to the screen where you can enter a name for the player, look at the lower-left corner, the version number will be stated.

@ Sas: Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, I have all three parts (the scroll is complete), and I built a Hall of Mysteries, but I keep clicking on the scroll, then the hall, and nothing happens. Is there something I missed? The way it's worded it sounds like I should be giving it to someone who existed on the island before I got there. Hmmmm.

Reply

@Cloverangel317 RE:last ice crystal in Cradle of the North

A screenshot won't help you unless all of the crystals are marked in it. Since there are 50 your last one missing probably won't be the same as someone else.

Something that you may be missing: out to and under the pedastal where the whale totem is placed there is a slim path where your scout can walk. Other then that all I can say is clear away as much of the fog as you can.

You do not need both idols to defeat the level so if you are worried about not being able to progress with the game, don't be.

You cannot get there on your first visit. You need to get a relic from another island first. I suggest keeping track of the islands that you need to go back to for things you couldn't get the first time.

@sheri RE:how to get the treasure chest on the shark island?

There are 3 treasure chests on Shark Archelapego. The one on the centre island requires you to collect turtle shells, the one on the north-east island requires you to find the rune in order to open the gate and the one on the central-south island requires that you light all lighthouses. There are tips on the last one in the blue FAQ section at the top of the page.

Reply

@Deborah

Ok now you have me really confused lol You shouldn't have the ability to build the Hall of Mysteries until after you have given away the scroll. And yes the scroll goes to the man already on the island when you get there. It is the 3 part puzzle that you solve with the bulbs being lit up right?

Reply

@ Sas:

Yup, I solved all three puzzles. I've been playing this for days, so I honestly don't remember how I got to build the HoM.

The only man who was already on the island when I got there was the hermit on the south shore. Is that who you're talking about? Since I already have the ability to build the HoM, what I really need is the Ice Spell so that I can put out the fires, kill the rest of the skeletons, and get to the middle of the island. Where is the HoM that was supposed to already be on the island?

Thanks so much again!

Comet Crash Site - spoiler for the light-dark lights is partially wrong. It works until the last six numbers given. 2,4,6,5,3,4 don't do anything. Any answers for this puzzle would be great. I'm totally stuck.

Hi all, I've been lurking here for several days getting help for this wonderfully irritating game. (lol)

Although I'm not sure if it will be any help for you, I've found an additional color to use with the FOW command that works better for me than the clear.

Instead of using 00FFFFFF for clear, try CCCCCCCC. This makes a smokey looking gray that you can see through. This way, you can see the important things that you need, but you can also tell where you haven't thoroughly explored yet and need to look for those elusive gems. Also, if you paint the gems, you can also see those through the fog. I had already painted my gems before using this color, so am unsure of whether they could be seen in their original state.

Thanks for all of your help!

Just kill the skeletons,but not the temples.They're tons of skeletons.Some are hidden though,so you have to find it,or spray paint it using a picture editing program.Remember to save an original copy in case.
Go to the game's directory(C drive mostly)
C:/-Program Files-Totem Tribe-data-texture-game-item
They're many things you can spray paint.

Actually the above solution can also apply to Amy's case.

Oh dear I demolished all the temples on Skeleton Island.
I am at the comet now, but wanted to go through all the Islands again to search for the missing relics and gems.

I'll try the spray paint...hope I can find the missing 3.

HELP! I'm sure it's already been posted, or is very obvious, but I can't get rid of the fog on the island in the top left corner of Ruins of dream shore...I built towers as close as I could...how did anyone else do it? Please? Arg....

3 gems...I've got 40 TT
Anyone have a list of the location of gems on the SMALL islands not the main islands?

Thank you!

I'm in the same boat as Amy, I can't find the last two crystals on the comet crash site. is there something else I need to do first?

I don't know how to go into the file or spray-paint or whatever, that's a bit beyond my computing level, if you know what I mean.

@SweetMama RE:Guardian Moon

You cannot get this item until you have found %100 of the gems. Once at %100 you will be given access to the moon above the rainbow which is where you will find that last object.

@JIGuest RE:fog on the island in the top left corner of Ruins of dream shore

You need to send your scouts exploring and let them go through the portals. I believe it is the one at the bottom of the screen near the centre. Only your scouts would be able to get to it since it is only accessible by swimming.

@Amy & Chanel RE:crystals on the comet crash site

Most of the green crystals are hidden in the grass and trees so that is why they are heard to see. 8 of the green crystals are in front of the green crystal blockade. If you walk your hero to the edges around the idols you will see the 9th green crystal just above the green blockade. Blue and orange crystals will be found once you are able to search higher up on the map.

@Jazzz RE:I entered the comet and built more than 10 towers

Here are the tricks I use for my setup:

No matter what level you are and you encounter a 'shade' (or any enemy) the easiest and fastest way to defeat them is troops.

Shamans, hunters and archers are best against any enemy since they don't need direct contact. The further away they can stand the less damage they take over a short period of time. Also make sure you have built a few witch doctor shacks so they can help replenish your army's life points.

If there is an area where you know you will be encountering them you can build a few towers ahead of time and I would suggest upgrading them to arrow towers.

Make sure you build a workshop and smithy and research all available upgrades for weapons and armor.

Here are tips for when you encounter the alien boss:

I would suggest following the tips on beating the shades as a set up. You will also want to build a lot of towers (I use a lot of arrow towers and usually more then 20) so that they can battle off the smaller enemies while your troops are fighting in the 'boss' cavern. You will have to send your workers out for quite a few repairs while your troops are away but you shouldn't lose very many structures completely.

Once the 'boss' statue is defeated and the 'boss' alien appears, walk-throughs are opened up in the crystal structure. Send your scout walking around to find all the hidden chanbers and pockets holding crystals that look like the ones protecting the alien. Click each one to destroy them and once you have found and destroyed them all the ones around the alien get demolished too.

Your troops will now have much more success getting damage through to the 'boss' alien.

If you get %100 of the gems and then complete the tasks on the moon you will be given to additional items that will help you with the final level. Guro will let you know when to use one of them and the other will already be in effect.

@Deborah, like Sas says you shouldn't be able to build HM just yet, unless you've given the scroll to the Shaman in the HM on the island.

But the HM is located a little further down the island from the Training Grounds on the left hand side of the island you need to build a Frost Tower to destroy a Fire Wall. It's just above an Idol

Reply

@Deborah

I am playing again so I will be able to tell you for sure. I think there was supposed to be 3 dwellers already on the island. The hermit who wants the lava rocks, the training grounds guy who wants the 3 skeleton swords and then the man in the HOW who wants the frost scroll.

Maybe you aren't where I think you are lol If the hermit asked for lava rocks then he will grant you access to the middle of the island, there is a crystal sphere under his house that once you can activate will clear away the fog.

Let me know if I am thinking of the absolute wrong island! lol

Quick question: On Comet Crash Site is there any particular order in placing the Totems to destroy the Purple Crystals? I have completed it twice & destroyed them using different totems but was just wondering if there is a different ending as to the choice of totems used.

Reply

@trekkie RE:particular order in placing the Totems

No the order doesn't seem to make any difference. You can get different endings to the game depending on how you decide to finish the final level.

Thanks Sas was just wondering, Oh well off to smash some crystals!!

Thx Sas too.I'm already at 97%,an increase of about 13% of gems.

Just wanted to give a heads up about the spoiler for Comet Island. The game with the white and black orbs. The spoiler for that puzzle is

532467531246534

. It was the one puzzle I couldn't figure out. Thanks for the help.

can someone please help me? i can't get my heroes onto the purple dots on island of worship. what am i doing wrong? and also, is the relic of prosperity on this optional island that you ca go to for getting the map from island of worship?

@Jazzz

Once you finish Shark Archelapego take your scouts swimming to clear out on the black on the levels where something may have been missed.

Mist Island the gems are in the outer clouds, you need to walk your heros to the edge all around in order to see them, plus there is the crystal orb on a shore at the north end which will show you the only ones you won't be able to clear fog from. Monkey Island also has a crystal spehere that will take away the fog from inside the mountain so you can get those one.

I don't remember there being anything outside the main island for Scorched or Volcano.

For Ruins of Dream Shore the only outer land mass that has gems is the one top-left. All other gems are visible on land.

WORSHIP ISLAND GLOWING DOT PUZZLE HOW TO:

You need to place your people inside the 4 glowing circles. Scout flag in one, battle flag in one, build a temple in one to send workers and drag ANY person to the fourth. They must all be inside the rings at the same time.

There are 2 glowing circles on each side of your screen, same place on both sides. They are made up of 'dots' that seem to emit from the ground and rise up.

To open the chest that will appear you will need all 5 shaman masks in your treasury.

RELIC OF PROPERITY:

You cannot get this item until you have found %100 of the gems. Items do not count toward the percentage of completion of rainbow road. Once at %100 you will be given access to the moon above the rainbow which is where you will find that last object.

No it is not on the island of the map you get.

I'm stuck for the second time on mist island. Aruku doesn't like to go into the clouds, doesn't follow the eye very well, and generally just runs around like the proverbial chicken without a head. I tried the fow but my computer won't save after I make the changes. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm ready to jump off the edge!

Can anyone help ? I've travelled through Mist Island and got the thunderbolt technology, next I'm put onto Scorched Island. From the walkthroughs that I've seen, I thought I was supposed to be on Lonely Iceberg ?? Is it me, or is my game broken ?

@Sir Kemp RE: Lonely Iceberg

You need to find the map at Frozen Vale before you can get to Lonely Iceburg. If you already have the map then the island has been unlocked and you can play it.

I have found all but one shell on frozen vale island. I found all the shells in the mountains. I know the chest on the island has the last coin that I need. Has anyone mapped out where all the shells are. Please help

I tried the method to add a gem to Volcano Island and, indeed, a new gem appeared, but even after collecting it, it did not appear in my treasure chest and I am still at 99%. Anyone else have any other ideas on how to fix the code in version 1.0? (1.02 is not available on Shockwave where I bought the game)

[Edit: You can try the method of editing the gems file for Volcano Island previously mentioned here in the comments by matthewfarmery. We don't recommend it, however, for anyone with v1.02 since it's not necessary. However, for you, it may work — but I'm not certain about that.

Or, if you don't mind playing the game through again, you could ask for your money back from Shockwave, and get the very latest, up-to-date version from us at Casual Gameplay. :) -Jay]
