Q: Where and how I can get all of the elfstones?

A: They are only available in chapter 5. There is a divination room in Arborlon that gives hints as to the locations of the elfstones. But here they are anyway:

1. In the Pit of Peril (visible in Chapter 1) - on an island just west of Norsland. There is a separate teleportal room in the Norsland Shrine locked by a magic door. After getting the Magic key, use the teleportal to get to the island.

2. In the Badon Crypt (visible in Chapter 2) - in the abandoned village of Badon in the southeast tip of the desert there is a stone building locked by a magic door. After getting the Magic key, open the door and enter the crypt.

3. At the peak of Mt. Neverest (visible in Chapter 3) - at the giant mountain near Okasa there is a large wall with a magic door. After getting the Magic key and sailing to Jomongu with the ship, open the door and ascend the mountain.

4. Atop the Tower on the Lake (visible in Chapter 4) - in the center of the lake near Bombomb, there is an island with a tower on it. After getting the airship, pilot it to the island and ascend the tower.

Q: How do I get the bridge built in the Grundo manor well?

A: You have to discover the bridge is out, and then, in the manor, enter a new workorder in the carpenter's workbook. He will then go to the broken bridge, but will need lumber to fix it. Go back up to the storage shed and find a pile of broken wood and collect some lumber. Bring it back to the carpenter.
