        Beginning                       Be sure to go NW and examine the weed.
                                        read the Legend and Lore of Quendor,
                                        or ask the old woman in the magic shop
                                        about the weed.
                                        it has healing powers (see Mist)
 
        Warf/Sailor                     "Hello, sailor".
                                        wait. take driftwood. name it (opt.)
 
        Pub                             take the lantern. you'll need it.
                                        open the door. leave the rug alone
                                        until you get out of the cellar. go
                                        west into the kitchen. be sure to
                                        take the dagger (see Lighthouse).
 
        Kitchen                         open the door. be sure you have
                                        something to kill with, and the
                                        lantern. listen to the cook. enter
                                        the cellar.
 
        Cellar                          take the scroll and READ it. when
                                        the lanter goes out, type the word in
                                        the scroll to light it again. in the
                                        throne room, "search debris". there's
                                        a gold coin you can sell/trade to the
                                        old woman.  squeeze any moss you find
                                        (improves dexterity). then you can
                                        climb the stacks. "LOOK AT AMULET
                                        THROUGH BOTTLE".  if you have the
                                        transport scroll and used it BEFORE
                                        you entered the cellar, you can
                                        escape that way. or wear the amulet
                                        and say the word on the amulet. bash
                                        the cellar door in with extra power.
                                        once out, "roll the onion east". be
                                        sure to take the rug.
 
        Lighthouse/Cliffs               read the inscription.
                                        type "answer, lightning".
                                        Be sure to have the onion, rug and
                                        dagger from Pub/Kitchen. If you haven't
                                        done this, go NW and take the salt
                                        from the brine.  Roll the onion in
                                        the direction you want to go. put salt
                                        on the slug. rub the rug and touch the
                                        dust bunny. take/wear the ring. at the
                                        top, search debris, THEN read the
                                        chest.  cut the onion with dagger when
                                        the dorn beast attacks, then take
                                        chest and run like h***. (Maybe this is
                                        where I missed level 9. try using the
                                        annihalation stick to destroy it).
 
        Arcadia                         wait for the monkey grinder.  wait
                                        until the grinder deals with the
                                        nymph who won't let you go north.
                                        try to kill him (unlikely), or give
                                        the chest to him (after you opened it
                                        first). monkey grinders can't read!
                                        a weapons shop is here as well.
 
        Mist                            if the vapor takes anything from you,
                                        it will be in another location in the
                                        mist area.  be sure to "wield the
                                        driftwood" before the vapors appear.
                                        if you don't already have it, get the
                                        saddle from the stable (see Stable).
                                        with the pterodactyl, either set dial
                                        on the gurdy to ear and turn crank
                                        right, or point annesthesia rod at
                                        pterodactyl. take whistle,arrow. put
                                        weed (see beginning) in wound. put
                                        saddle on pterodactyl. only blow the
                                        whistle when needed (you only get 3
                                        opportunities). when you get on, fly.
 
        Private Way                     take horseshoe. kiss the unicorn's
                                        horn (good luck). give the chest to
                                        the unicorn. if you have the levi-
                                        tation staff, you can float the saddle
                                        out of the stall.  Or speak the word
                                        on the amulet (it's clobbering time!).
                                        an armour shop is here as well. you'll
                                        need the horseshoe, by the way, for
                                        later (see Underground).
 
        Gondola (cable car)             once inside, wait and listen to the
                                        speaker. when you get to a support
                                        towers, exit. then down.
 
        Town NW of Private Way          eat the cake you find on the street.
                                        there is a magic shop here. this is
                                        where most of your questions about
                                        certain objects can be answered ("ask
                                        woman about ...."). buy the rabbit's
                                        foot (see Underground).
 
        Forest                          the puppet and hellhound are very hard
                                        to kill. use something that is very
                                        good for this (stick of annihalation
                                        or the equivalent). at the boulder,
                                        answer "youth". if you have the minx
                                        (see Village), wait by an oak for the
                                        minx to find the truffle, then put the
                                        truffle in the pool. keep the truffle
                                        in you pack until needed (see Ruins)
                                        or the minx will get it.
 
        Bridge                          there is no way across or back. take
                                        the umbrella, open it, then jump.
                                        best to use the pterodactyl or the
                                        gating spell to get across to the
                                        ruins.
 
        Ruins                           have the vial from the church in the
                                        Village for the undead warrior. Have
                                        minx! Also the hourglass from the
                                        magic shop (after you give the jewel
                                        from the Jungle to the woman).  go to
                                        the arch, then enter. turn hourglass
                                        over. go south twice and wait.  when
                                        the prince is killed, put the truffle
                                        in the trench. then turn the hourglass
                                        and go north until you reach
                                        desolation.  wait. let the minx do the
                                        work for you. take/wear the
                                        helmet. go back to the arch, then
                                        exit.
 
        Castle                          here is where the pterodactyl comes
                                        in. fly to the castle (you may have
                                        to find it). use the compass rose to
                                        adjust the winds (see Plains). be sure
                                        you are not on your third turn with
                                        the whistle or you will never leave.
                                        hide behind the bush. take roots and
                                        eat them (strength). wait. open the
                                        statue and take the jar.
 
        Jungle                          if you are wearing the cloak, take it
                                        off. attack baby hungus. let mother
                                        hungus chase you (wait each turn.
                                        she's kinda slow). go up on the idol.
                                        when the mother hungus gets on the
                                        bottom of the teeter-totter, take the
                                        jewel. oops, you drop it and are
                                        dumped in the idol. if you have the
                                        lantern, light it. squeeze the moss
                                        (it can't hurt). either use the gating
                                        or transportation spells, or point
                                        the Eversion stick at idol to get out.
                                        Now that you're free, point Eversion
                                        at mother to get jewel, THEN point
                                        levitation at baby (to gain more
                                        compassion). the jewel is worth 1000
                                        zorkmids and is needed to buy the
                                        hourglass (see Ruins).
 
        Village                         erase the footprints of the minx.
                                        you definitely need the minx!
                                        enter the church and sit down. look
                                        under the pew. be sure you have the
                                        caterpillar (see Plains) so you can
                                        get by the christmas tree monsters.
                                        open the reliquary after you defeat
                                        the tree monsters. take white hemi-
                                        sphere. "put peg in hole" (examine
                                        black & white hemispheres).
 
        Mountaintop                     open mailbox.read leaflet.open parcel.
                                        in cottage, search table and take the
                                        black hemisphere. READ THE BOOK.
                                        you'll need something powerfull to get
                                        past the snow wight (annihalation or
                                        the equivalent). point the dispel
                                        wand (from north room when you first
                                        met the monkey grinder in Arcadia) at
                                        the dome, then run like H***. Before
                                        the lava cools (AND if you're wearing

                                        else you think is a luck charm). also
                                        you'll need the jar and the best
                                        armour you can buy. go to the wall
                                        NW of the Village. say the word and
                                        open the door. once inside, take the
                                        circlet from the jar.  "blow bubble.
                                        turn mirror south". remember that
                                        angle of incidence equals angle of
                                        reflection. if light is coming from
                                        the SE and you want to go SW, you must
                                        turn mirror South for the light to
                                        reflect. strike all lucksuckers (i.e.
                                        black cat, stepladder, umbrella, etc)
                                        with luck charms. once in the treasure
                                        chamber, turn your mirror to shine on
                                        the shadow. then search treasure, take
                                        the coconut, then run/wait/whatever.
                                        you will eventually get buried, but
                                        help is on it's way .....
