Welcome to Brave: A Warrior's Tale. This game has 14 achievements worth a total of 1000 . Of the 14 achievements, you will receive 8 achievements just by completing the story. 4 of the remaining 6 achievements are for collectibles, and the last 2 are for completing certain tasks at two points in the story.

Play through the story
This is where you will get all of the achievements. Make sure you collect all of the totems so you don't have to go back and replay any levels to get them then. A complete guide for them can be found here. If you miss one, don't worry, in the middle of the final boss fight you will have a chance to go back and get them.

As you are playing through the story like normal, making sure to collect all 48 totems, you will get to a point after the second level where you are in a canoe. Make sure to get the Canoe Master achievement here, see the achievement guide for information on how to get it.
There is a game ending glitch in the game, that if encountered, will force you to have to restart the entire game. You will encounter this glitch only if you quit the game after beating the third level, "The Wolf Hunt". When you load the game, as you progress on the path to the fourth level, the pathway will not load, and you will be unable to progress. If when you try to progress your game looks like this(url=, then you have encountered this glitch, and must restart your game. The only known way to get around this is to not quit at all during the level. To be safe, play through all of Wolf Hunt, and don't stop until you get past the first flying part in the fourth level, "Maiden Rock". 
Continue through the story to the fourth level. Towards the end of the level, you will be able to get the Sky Lord achievement, see the achievement guide for more details.
Now, all you have to do is completely finish the game, making sure to collect every totem.

If you do not have every achievement by the time you go back to present time and speak to Brave in the village, you will be given the opportunity to replay any level in the game. From here, make sure you have every achievement, then collect the three totems for him to be able to finish the story, then defeat the final boss to complete your 1000 .

Hero of the Tribe500
Complete every level in Brave- A Warrior's Tale    (8) 
You will get this after you defeat the final boss and the next cut scene starts.
The game is very easy, but some parts can be a little tricky. Some enemies will knock you down once and then they just keep draining your health and you can't get up. Most of the time, though, you can just run past all the enemies and you don't have to worry about fighting them.

If you are ever stuck at a part, you can look at THIS walkthrough. The walkthrough was originally for the game on the Playstation 2, but this is a remake of the same exact game, so for the most part, everything is the same.
The journey begins30
Show that you have the skills to begin your quest!    
This is the first achievement you unlock. Right when you start a new game, you will be in the tutorial. Just progress through, all of it is just jumping over and onto rocks and other obstacles, and the achievement is yours.
Collect your first feather, and gain the ability to use 'spirit energy'    

Please see Chief for more information.

Collect your second feather, and gain the ability to use two Spirit Charges    

Please see Chief for more information.

Collect your third feather, and gain the ability to use three Spirit Charges    (1)

Collect your fourth feather, and gain the ability to use four Spirit Charges

Collect your fifth feather, and gain the ability to use five Spirit Charges    
All of these achievements are story-related, so you can't miss them. As you progress, you will be given every feather. The only exception is the first one where you have to get it from the eagle at the end of the first level.

Master of Lore30
You have collected all of the Secret Totems!    
There are actually only 47 Secret Totems in the game that you have to find. To find a totem, you either have to follow a few tracks and it will pop out of the ground or you have to mimic a bird and it will fly over and drop it, then you go pick it up. You will get the 48th totem just by picking up the 47th.

For an excellent video guide of all totem locations, made by darkenednight, click HERE.
Don't worry if you miss any totems (except in the Northern Lands ice level, see below), because during the final boss fight, you will be brought back to present time (the story takes place in the past) and you can replay any levels where you missed a totem. When you go back and pick one up, once you have every one in that level, you can just quit out,. You don't have to finish the level.
You will get the achievement right after you pick up the 48th and final totem.

If you summon the bird to drop a totem on the Northern Lands ice level and you do not pick up the totem, you will be forced to replay the entire game again. You will not be able to pick it up when you return before the final level.
Spirit Walker30
Stabilize the portal with the power of the sacred Totems.    
During the final boss fight, after the boss losses his left arm the first time, you will be brought back to the present time. Brave will tell you that he needs you to collect three totems for him to continue the story. Collect these three and the achievement is yours and you will be able to continue with the boss fight.

Locations of the three totems:
  • When you are standing next to Brave, go straight down towards the water and jump onto the ledges in front of you. Follow the ledges all the way to the top and then walk left on the edge of the cliff to the totem.
  • When you're standing next to Brave, go right across the stream. Climb up the vines that are straight in front of you on the far wall and then jump left into the cave. Once you are in there, go across the spinning cylinder with the spikes in front of you, jump across the platforms to get to the moving platforms, jump on top of these and move across to a big black circular platform. Now jump across the spinning snake sort of thing in front of you to get the totem.
  • When you are standing next to Brave, go left (you are turning around, but it is left on the screen). Now jump over the platforms and follow the path to a large spinning wheel. Make your way across this and follow the path for the final totem.
River Master40
Your canoe took no damage at all!   
Between the second and third levels, you will get to a point where you are riding in a canoe down a river. All you have to do is avoid hitting everything. If you hit something, just hit three more obstacles so you crash so you can try again.

The hardest obstacles to avoid are the logs that are also moving down the stream. There is one at the very beginning and then two at the very end. Make sure you brake by pressing so you don't go in front of them and risk one turning into you.

You want to almost always be pressing to break, so you can turn around the rocks in the middle of the river easier. Occasionally there are straightaways that you can press to speed up, but only when you can see everything in front of you.
Sky Lord30
No one can call you just an Earth Walker now   
You can get this on Level 4, Maiden Rock. Once you collect the four totem pieces that you stack on top of each other, one will get stolen by a vulture. When you get on the eagle and fly after the vulture, you will notice orange rings that turn green once the vulture goes through them. You have to fly through them as well.

Don't press to speed up because you will more than likely end up missing the next ring. You don't have to press to brake at many places either. Maybe at the end but even then, the turns are wide enough to make without slowing down. If you miss a ring, fly into a wall to die so you can start over.
