Dawn's Face

Dawn is an important person in Lands of Lore, but she is not playable. However, it was intended that she should join your group at some point in the game, as she has some unused character portraits.

Unused Music

Gladstone Keep's Old Theme

This music would probably have been used in Gladstone Keep, but more specifically at the beginning of the game. It is in the same style as the second theme of the Keep after the attack by Scotia.

Unused Text

Invisible Text

With the help of a program to extract the graphics of the game, you can see text on the screen where King Richard is put in stasis after Scotia's attack. The texts describes when the king is there or not.

Unused Items

Lands of Lore has an impressive number of unused items.
