Hey, so I used a teleport scroll to get to the chest on a little island in the Avenguard Academy. I only had one and I'm not a mage, am I stuck?

Yep. If you exit to the title screen and come back you'll be at the map entry point though.

First make sure you meet the Requirements to use the bow. Mouse-over the bow and if the requirements are Red, you can't use it yet.

Once you can, equip the bow in your left hand ("off-hand slot").

To shoot the bow use a ranged Power. E.g. drag the "Shoot" power to your action bar.

Hey Nanaa.
In case you haven't realized yet, there's another section to get to the encampment.
I'm not gonna spoill it for anyone, so I'll just say there's another screen, its not hard too find.

As JPS800 said, there is a River Encampment map that is separate.

We'll be fixing this in the full version of the game, make sure there's no confusion about quest objectives.

This is a short demo game made for the alpha engine. There are probably two more Alpha releases. Once all the features are ready we'll flesh out a full game.
