You have to have Rowen in your party. You can make her a sword singer in the Briar Woods using the great tree (I think it's called) at the top left corner somewhere. As for where the statues are, I know where a few of them are. One is in the ginger nut forest, one in the black rock depths, one in the snow caves, one in the daintree forest I think. Those are the ones I remember
The metal is in Gingernut forest. Head north when you first enter the forest and follow the path. Then head east once you pass a cabin. There you should find a cave. Enter that cave and you should see a big rock. Interact with it to get the metal you need.
I have played this game last Christmas, and this Christmas again, and in between, and will continue to do so. I just love this game. The puzzles are doable and not as tiresome as they were in the previous 2 Christmas games by John Wizard, which is a shame (for me), because I love love love the games, but find the many puzzles just too tiresome.
I was sad to see that we didn't get another Christmas game, but know that Daniel had his hands full with Aveyond 4.
And if Daniel were ever to make a longer Christmas game, one with lots of decorations and candy cane and whatnots to search for (but skippable puzzles if puzzles have to be included), I would be the first to buy it. These "little" games are gems. They are among my favourite RPGs. I am not all that much into battle scenes anyway, and just love this type of RPG.
i love this kind of events it was so much fun and joy in the game story, i miss the fights because i wanted to see john wizard in action and it will be cool if you make this with halloween theme the main character could be boyle from aveyond 4 .
