Q3: Lair of the Orc Warlord: NA vs EU differences (Spoilers)

Postby Kurgan » Saturday February 1st, 2020 11:20am

So reading off the scans of the EU version of Quest 3 ("Lair of the Orc Warlord") vs the NA version I noticed some differences:

EU Version: 100 gold coins to the one who kills Ulag alone.
NA version: 180 gold coins to be divided when Ulag dies.
(And other treasure found may be kept by the finder alone)

NA Version: A: Hero finds Staff.
EU Version: C: Hero finds Spear.

NA Version: B: Hero finds 24 gold coins, Potion of Healing (+4)
EU Version: A: Hero finds 30 gold coins, Potion of Healing (+4)

NA Version: Unmarked chest. Empty?
EU Version: B: chest contains an unidentified trap (-1 Body) and 100 gold coins

So now we see that Phoenix's version is a faithful re-creation of the NA version, including this "error" of the unmarked chest. Clearly the NA map-makers goofed up and left out the entry.

NA Version: Ulag stats: has 2 body points
EU Version: Ulag stats: has 1 body point (like all monsters)

In the NA version a Fimir was moved from the room before the battle with Ulag to a formerly empty room. Goblins and an Orc were added to Ulag's room.

"Premiere Edition" vs. EU Edition: no differences noted.

And now a proposed "fix" for the NA version:

C: This chest contains an exploding lock. Any Hero who searches for Treasure without disarming the trap will lose one Body Point. The chest contains 100 gold coins.
