                             7. The Sluice Gates 

1.  Consider the uses of a basket, as well as alternate light sources. 
    Remember that the solution to a problem may not necessarily reside in 
    the same room...or at the same height.

2.  First, get the spirits' attention. Having done that,  there's only two 
    other things  left to do, so play around a little until you have 
    everything in the right order. Read any  good books lately?

3.  This one is easy, if subtle. Consider the outstanding quality of the 
    room, and make an order  of it.

4.  Well, you know where to look, right? You just have to do something 
    first. Have you seen anything around that might remind you of a rainbow? 
    Get the point?

5.  The program didn't lie: *YOU* have neither the skills nor the expertise, 
    so who else is left? Be generous, it will pay off in the end.

6.  First, you need to have the egg open. Then, you have to go to  the 
    logical place and do the logical thing. When the egg is open, this 
    should be music to your ears.

7.  Everything you need is at hand. Play around in the Maintenance Room, and 
    remember to check other rooms as well for a  change. Tools can come in 
    handy, too.

                               8. The Demon 

1.  Aren't riddles a pain? This one should make you thirsty. (Think about 
    that for awhile)

2.  You can't do this one by  yourself, so bring along some help. And keep 
    in mind that just because you can't see something, that doesn't mean 
    it's out of range.

3.  You can't do anything with him where you find him; now, if you could 
    just get him to follow  you...

4.  Balloons are filled with hot air; seen anything flammable  around 

5.  Yes, this is certainly a tricky one! The key is the curtain of light; 
    pay close attention to its description, as well as the piece of paper on 
    the floor.  Also keep in mind that things are not always what they seem 
    to be here, either.

6.  Ah, if only you had magical powers, you might be able to do something 
    about this!

7.  First, remember that this room is *oddly-angled*. Second, what does the 
    club look like to you? Third, read the name on the club carefully; that 
    should give you some ideas. Fourth, what's on the floors? Think about 
    all that and you should be able to figure out what to do here.

8.  A *very* greedy character...but he will help you, if you know what you 
    want! (Hint: remember the Menhir!)

                              7. The Guardians of Zork 

1.  Mysterious, isn't he? Also, not too friendly! However, beter not kill 
    him...he has something you need.

2.  *You* will certainly never be able to open it. 

3.  What would you do here if you couldn't see? And don't forget what's on 
    the wall.

4.  Remember the book from Zork I? No? Well, just be friendly!

5.  First, read the date on the cage carefully. Second, don't be greedy! 
    Third, the way to bring back what you have should be obvious; you just 
    have to look in the right place.

6.  Don't take the easy way out...be pushy! (It helps to have paper  and 
    pencil handy here!) Westward Ho!

7.  The solution is transparent.... bottoms up!

    what they are. You will also need something else here ("a tisket, a

4.  This one you have to look for, but it isn't far away. Shake a few 
    things, and see what happens

5.  First, you have to weasel your  way to the Green Dock. After that, those 
    mysterious disks  will once again come in handy.

6.  You have to project yourself  into this one. It would also  help if you 
    could see, if only in a fragmentary way.

7.  "For every action, there is an equal AND OPPOSITE reaction...". Think 
    about where you want to go, and aim accordingly.

8.  Do something with the Red Rod. It helps a little if you know chemistry.
