When the hero is mistaken to be a detective for the academy, the headmaster pleas the hero to find out where the missing kids went and gives the Hero the uniform as a disguise. The hero finds out that a kid placed a fygg on the founder's burial grounds and the next day it was gone. Also, there was a rumor that if you touch the guardian's statue on the forehead at midnight you would find a ghost. When you join the school gang, they challenge you to touch the statue's forehead at midnight. When you do touch the statue, the ghost of the founder of the school appears and takes Fred, the leader of the gang. When you follow him, the ghost opens up his tomb and goes to the secret passageway into the old school. When you go through the dungeon, you find the missing kids in detention. The teacher transforms in to a monster, and when he is defeated, the honor of Swinedimples Academy is restored.

Most quests here are available after the Fygg is collected, and they require a certain level of a skill (most quests require weapons skills of 30, and the quests reward you with a very nice weapon for that skill) for the hero to trigger the quest.
