1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


In King's Quest IV, King Graham has fallen ill, and Rosella travels to the land 
of Tamir to find a magic fruit which will save him. After arriving in Tamir, 
she meets Genesta, the fairy queen on an island near a shark-infested ocean. 
Genesta has had her magic talisman stolen by the wicked queen Lolotte, and only 
has one day to live if the talisman is not returned. Rosella must first journey 
through a troll's cave to find the magic fruit near a poisonous viper at the 
other side of a swamp, and must then journey to Lolotte's castle at the top of 
a mountain to find the talisman.

5.                        Frequently Asked Questions

===============================================================================


Q. I can't find the whale! I've entered the screen east of the island so many 
   times, but the only thing that appears is the shark. What should I do?
A. Make sure you've walked up the mountain path to talk to Lolotte first. If 
   you haven't done this, the whale won't appear.

Q. I'm inside the whale. How do I climb the tongue?
A. Walk to the far left side of the tongue and press up to start climbing it. 
   Slowly tap right, then up, then right, then up. Continue doing this to reach 
   the top of the tongue.

Q. I'm inside the ogre's house, but I keep getting caught by the dog! How do I 
   avoid it?
A. That dog is extremely fast. Make sure you've set the speed slow, and throw 
   the bone as soon as you enter the house.

Q. I'm under the steps in the ogre's house. I've looked through the keyhole and 
   he's not there yet. Have I got to do something before he arrives?
A. No. Just wait a while and he'll arrive.

Q. I've got the hen and opened the door, but it squawked and attracted the 
   attention of the ogre. What should I do?
A. Make sure you've set the speed to fast. The ogre will only follow you 
   through some areas, so walk north, then east to escape the ogre.

Q. I've entered the witch's cave, but I can't find the glass eye anywhere. I've 
   tried getting it, but a message appears telling me I'm not close enough. 
   What should I do?
A. The witches at the back of the room pass it to each other. Walk to the back 
   of the room, and get the eye as soon as they start to pass it.

Q. I can't go anywhere in the cave as the troll keeps catching me! How do I 
   avoid the troll?
A. The troll appears randomly, so keep entering the cave until the troll 
   doesn't appear.

Q. How do I find the latch on the wall in the haunted house?
A. Make sure you look at the portrait first, and then the wall.

Q. I've tried playing the music at the pipe organ, but it doesn't work. How do 
   I play the sheet music?
A. Make sure you actually type "play sheet music". "Play music" will not work.
