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

Hello, and welcome to my FAQ for King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow. 
Looking at previous works by me, one can see that I am an avid King's Quest 
fan. I have already written walkthroughs for three of the games in the series,
as well as two point lists and a story walkthrough. This marks my fourth 
walkthrough for the series, and hopefully the experience gained from previous 
writing and the time and effort put into this guide makes it my best one yet.

Although my roots lie mostly in the PC, most of my gaming as of late has taken
me to consoles. While I enjoy both forms of gaming, no adventure on a console 
can compare to anything by Sierra with "Quest" in the title. These games took
gamers to entirely new worlds, some fantasy, some futuristic. They mixed humor,
action, exploration, and puzzles. They had well-developed characters and 
entertaining plots. They revolutionized the genre.

This guide should lead you step-by-step through both paths of the game, as well
as point out optional tasks, alternate endings, and fun things to do. If it
doesn't, I guess I'm a failure. Sorry. Enjoy the guide.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q1. Who's this Roberta Williams person?
---------------------------------------
  Roberta Williams is the brain behind the King's Quest series, and many other
  wonderful games, such as Mission: Asteroid (which I've also written a guide
  for), Mystery House (ditto, and the first hi-res adventure game ever), and 
  the Laura Bow games. All worth playing.


Q2. Where can I get this game?
------------------------------
  Your chances of finding an original copy of it are pretty slim, but you 
  might be able to find it somewhere if you look really, really hard. You'd 
  probably be better off to just buy the entire series in either the Roberta 
  Williams Anthology (dunno if this is even still available) or the King's 
  Quest Collection. Both should be fairly inexpensive, but there *are* quite a 
  few games in each pack, so expect to fork over at least a few bucks.


Q3. Is this appropriate for my kids?
-----------------------------------
  Of course! There's nothing in it that will traumatize them, or even damage 
  their egos. Graham can die, but when he does, it doesn't show very much. 
  There's a bit of Yeti killing involved, but nothing that can possibly happen
  in real life is harmful to the little ones. The difficulty level might be a
  bit high for some children, but it's fun for everyone, so don't hesitate to 
  help out should they ask.


Q4. How 'bout for older people?
------------------------------
  It's a classic. Highly recommended for everyone. Just make sure you keep your
  own saved games easily distinguishable from everybody else's. Few things are 
  more annoying than getting most of the way through a game and having someone 
  else replace your game with their own, which just happens to be near the 
  beginning.


Q5. Why do some of these questions look familiar?
-------------------------------------------------
  Because I stole them from my King's Quest 1 guide, of course! I'm too lazy to
  come up with new questions and answers for everything, so if the same ones 
  work, I'm all for recycling them.


Q6. Why are the graphics glitching?
----------------------------------------
  This game was made to be played with 256 colors. If you use anything better, 
  the graphics will probably black out, which pretty much makes it impossible 
  to play. It might be interesting to try, however.


Q7. Where can I find _____?
---------------------------
  Well, if I know, it's in here. If I don't, you'll have to look elsewhere. Try
  checking somebody else's guide at http://www.gamefaqs.com.  


Q8. How do I do _____?
----------------------
  Ditto to the above question.


Q9. How old is this game?
----------------------
  It was originally released in 1992, just nine years after the release of the 
  first King's Quest. It's been rereleased in a few collections since then. 


Q10. Are there any games similar to this one that I should play?
----------------------------------------------------------------
  Well, if you dig the game as a whole, I'd highly recommend the other King's
  Quest games. I'm not a huge fan of Mask of Eternity, but maybe you will be.
  If it's the interface you enjoy, King's Quest 5 has a nearly identical one,
  as does Laura Bow 2: The Dagger of Amon Ra, both EcoQuest games, and Quest
  for Glory IV: Shadows of Darkness. Space Quest 5 does, too, and Space Quest
  6 has a similar one. In addition to these, there's probably at least one 
  Leisure Suit Larry game like this. So, basically, you can't go wrong with any
  of the Sierra adventure games released around this time period.


Q11. Can I use this FAQ on my site?
-----------------------------------
  Sure. Let me know if you do, though. Just email me and say something along 
  the lines of, "Hey, I'm using your KQ6 FAQ on my site, [insert address here].
  Just letting you know. Bye." Make sure you credit me wherever you put it, and
  leave the file exactly as it is


Q12. Can I send something to add to your guide?
-----------------------------------------------
  Sure, I'm all for useful additions. Just don't send me any partial 
  walkthroughs and expect me to put them in here word-for-word. I'll be 
  checking to make sure anything you send me is factual information before I 
  slap it in here, so whatever ends up in the file will come from that 
  experience. I'll credit you, though. Look for your name and/or email address 
  at the top of whatever you submit, and also in the Credits/Thanks section. I
  might be a bit slow about updating, but if your contribution is useful, it 
  will make its way into the document eventually.


Q13. Can I republish any of the information found here?
-------------------------------------------------------
  Drop me an email about this one. Tell me which information, where you're
  putting it, and why you want to do it. I'll get back to you with a yes or no
  answer. If I say yes, make sure you give me full credit. And also be sure to 
  give credit to whomever submitted it, if someone else told me about it.

                                     Story
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once upon a time, in a far off kingdom called Daventry, a dying king called for
his most noble knight. Promising him the throne should he succeed, this king
sent the knight, Graham, to recover three lost artifacts that would return the 
fallen Daventry to its former glory. Bravely, Sir Graham set out on his 
journey, and returned in a short amount of time with the treasures of Daventry:
A magic mirror that revealed the future and showed far-off lands and people, a
chest of gold that could never be emptied, and a shield that guaranteed the 
bearer victory in any battles.

With these spoils, Daventry prospered, and soon enough, Graham found himself in
need of a wife. None of the women of Daventry caught his fancy, and he had 
nearly given up. Suddenly, the image of a beautiful woman appeared in the magic
mirror. This woman was imprisoned in a tower on the island of Kolyma. Falling 
in love with her, Graham set out immediately to rescue the damsel in distress.
Of course, he succeeded. They were married, and Graham brought her back to 
Daventry to be his queen.

Two children were soon brought into the world. They were twins, a boy and a 
girl. The son was named Alexander; the daughter, Rosella. Unfortunately, young
Alexander was snatched from his cradle by an unknown force. The kingdom mourned
the loss of the young heir, but no amount of searching turned up even the 
smallest clue as to his location. 

Meanwhile, in a far off land called Llewdor, an evil wizard, Manannan, began 
training a young slave. He named the boy Gwydion, and for nearly eighteen 
years, the two lived alone in a house perched precariously atop a high 
mountain. The wizard planned to kill the boy just before his eighteenth 
birthday, for experience had taught him that young men longed for freedom and 
would often try to escape from slavery. Gwydion was no different, and having
learned his true identity from the animals, he was determined to leave behind 
his life as a servant. 

The sharp young man outwitted the wizard, and used his own magic to defeat him. 
He left the kingdom on the first ship out, and after only a few problems, found
himself in Daventry. Once there, he rescued the princess of the land from a 
dragon, and upon taking her to her parents, returned to his own home and took 
his rightful place as heir to the throne.

The royal family rejoiced, but in all the excitement of the celebrations, King 
Graham collapsed. He had been stricken by a heart attack, and nothing the royal
doctors could do would return him to his former health. In despair, Rosella ran
to the throne room and cried at her father's seat. As she did so, the magical
mirror called to her. Looking into it, she saw a beautiful face. This face 
belonged to a fairy named Genesta, who was also on the verge of death. Genesta 
told Rosella of a fruit that grew only on her island, Tamir. The fairy would 
transport Rosella to this island, and allow her to take this fruit, but she 
could only send her home again if the princess could recover an amulet stolen 
from Genesta by an evil fairy named Lolotte. Rosella managed to kill Lolotte,
and returned the amulet to its rightful owner. She returned to Daventry with 
the fruit, and gave it to Graham. The king recovered immediately, and once 
again, the family rejoiced.

Life was peaceful in the castle for a short period of time, but these things do
not last. One day, returning from a walk, Graham found to his dismay that his 
castle and its occupants were gone. An owl was able to tell him that an evil 
wizard, Mordack, had whisked them away. This owl, Cedric, took Graham to meet
another wizard. This one was much nicer, and his name was Crispinopher. He 
helped Graham in every way that he could, and the noble adventurer set off 
through the land of Serenia to rescue his family. In doing so, he learned that
Mordack was the brother of Manannan, and had kidnapped Graham's family in an
attempt to return his brother, who had been turned into a cat by Alexander, to
his human form. Fortunately, Graham arrived before any serious harm could be 
done to his family, and rescued them from the wizard's evil clutches. In doing
so, he also freed Manannan's slave, a girl named Cassima. Crispin was able to 
send all back to their respective homelands, but Alexander could not forget 
beautiful Cassima.

One day, gazing into the magic mirror, Cassima's face appeared before the 
prince. She was calling out to him, and he immediately announced his plans of
rescuing her to his family. Alexander eagerly set sail for the Land of the 
Green Isles, but a storm overtook his ship as they neared the coast. Only the 
prince made it to shore, and it is there that our adventure begins...



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  Characters
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alexander
---------
  The brave prince of Daventry, Alexander, set sail for the Land of the Green
  Isles to rescue Cassima, but found himself to be the sole survivor of a ship 
  wreck. Alone in a hostile land, he must use his wits and anything he can 
  carry to save the princess and return peace to the land. 


Cassima
-------
  Cassima returned to her homeland to find her parents dead. Her father's 
  advisor had taken over the country. The vizier locked Cassima in a tower, 
  cutting her off from all communication with the outside world. Fortunately,
  her location was revealed to Alexander in the magic mirror of Daventry, and
  if all goes well, the princess of the Land of the Green Isles will soon be 
  free.


Abdul Alhazred
--------------
  Once the king's closest advisor, this traitor poisoned the rulers and took 
  the throne for himself. He rules the land with lies and deceit, keeping 
  Cassima locked away. He does so with the assistance of his genie, who carries
  out even the vizier's most vile orders. 


Shamir Shamazel
---------------
  The vizier's genie, Shamir, is the force behind most of the evil in the game.
  It's not that he himself is evil; it's just that by magic law, he's got to do
  whatever his master tells him to. His master just happens to be evil. Shamir
  can often be seen around the islands disguised as somebody or something else.
  His true form is always easy to spot by the glinting, golden eyes.

                                   Controls
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

King's Quest VI uses Sierra's point-and-click interface of the early 90s. Your 
cursor has five different options, which you can switch between by pressing 
your right mouse button. Clicking on an object or area with the left button 
will trigger the action you've selected. If you have three mouse buttons, the
third button will toggle between the icon currently selected and the walk icon.

On your keyboard, use the arrow keys on your numeric keyboard to move the 
cursor around. The 5 key cycles between actions, and the 0 key is the 
equivalent of a third mouse button. To reach the icon bar, hit either the 
escape key or the delete key. To trigger an action, use the enter key.

The actions (and their corresponding icons) are as follows:
   } Walk...................Body
   } Look....................Eye
   } Touch/Take.............Hand
   } Talk..........Speech bubble
   } Item...................Item

Most of the controls are pretty much self-explanatory, so I won't insult your 
intelligence by going into too much detail.

- Walking is used to go from place to place. Clicking on the edge of the screen
  will take you to the next one, if possible.

- Looking is used to examine objects, or to trigger puzzles, view diagrams,
  and other such things.

- Touching things can trigger puzzles, switches, and other things. Taking 
  something will add it to your inventory. The item taken will automatically be 
  selected as the Item cursor.

- Talking to things or people triggers events, as well as providing hints, 
  clues, and other such things. It's almost always a good idea to talk to 
  everyone until they start repeating themselves. If you've done something
  important, return to talk to them again.

- Items can be used for countless things. The item displayed in your cursor is
  the one you have selected from your inventory. Any item you pick up is 
  automatically selected, but can be changed by choosing a new item in the 
  inventory.

- Sometimes a simple arrow cursor will be displayed. This acts just like any 
  other pointer cursor you've ever used. Choose items and options with it.

- A crown icon is displayed when loading or cutscenes occur. This is the wait
  cursor, so when that's displayed, sit back and watch. There's nothing you 
  can do.

- When you click on a question mark in any of the menus, a question mark icon
  will be displayed. Click on anything with that icon to see a quick 
  description of its function.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                     Menus
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At any point in the game, you can move your cursor up to the top of your screen
to display the icon bar. This displays the icons for four of the major actions,
as well as the item currently selected, a bag that takes you to your inventory,
and a slider bar representing the systems button.

The inventory itself is fairly self-explanatory. It holds your items. You can 
examine them, choose from them, touch them, and talk to them. You can scroll
through your inventory window by using the more button, represented by two 
arrows. When you're done, hit the OK button. If you do this after selecting an
item, the chosen item will be accessible through the item cursor.

The systems button brings up the game's control panel, which is slightly more 
complex. From here, you can change the game settings. You can also save, 
restore, restart, and quit, all be clicking on their respective buttons. An 
about button can give you a bit of game information, and the play button 
returns you to the game. To the right of these buttons, three sliders, labeled
Detail, Volume, and Speed, control three aspects of the game. Your score is
displayed below these, as well as a button that allows you to turn speech on
and off. 

The Detail button speeds up the game by cutting down on any useless animations.
Modern computers should have no trouble dealing with detail at its highest, but
older ones might have to tone it down a bit. The Volume button adjusts the 
volume of the game's music and sound effects, though it doesn't always work. 
Finally, the Speed button makes Alexander walk faster or slower. It does not 
alter the speed of anything else in the game.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    Points
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Throughout the game, various actions and items will earn points for you. There 
are 231 points in the game, but you don't have to get all of them to finish it. 
It's just a nice little challenge for you. In fact, you can finish the game 
with as few as 116 points, but why would you want to do that? Well, I suppose 
it's necessary to see all the endings...



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                Saving/Loading
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Save (found in the control panel) is a way of keeping your progress, even if 
you exit the game. Save often. Save well. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Restore (also found in the control panel) recalls your saved games. Do it if 
you die or screw up. You *did* save, right?

Restart (guess what? It's also in the control panel!) restarts your game. Big 
surprise there. Don't do this unless you're unbelievably stuck and you forgot 
to save your game before getting yourself there.

                    .:*~*:.  { 5. General Advice }  .:*~*:.
               -------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================

These tips are a mixture of the in-game help system and my own advice. Some 
strategies may work better for you than others. Determining which ones are best
for you is your own responsibility. Use common sense. If you zonk out when 
people drone on about the history of an island, don't bother talking to people
who do such things. There's nothing to be gained by speaking to them if you 
aren't going to pay attention to what they say. 

- Save constantly. Fill the saved game folder if you want to, but even if you 
  don't, try to keep at least three save files per game. It's generally a good
  idea to save at least once every 10 minutes, as well as before and after 
  completing an especially grueling task such as the logic cliffs. 

- Make your saved games distinguishable. Your most recent save is always on 
  top, but if you need to go back to an older one, and you've got a directory
  full of saved games labeled Save1, Save2, etc., it's going to be hard to find
  the one you want. You might end up doing tons of backtracking that could've
  easily been avoided.

- Examine and touch everything on the screen. You never know what you can carry
  with you, and sometimes an object's description can give you a gentle prod in
  the right direction.

- Pick up anything that isn't nailed down. There is a use for everything in 
  this game, but not always on the path you choose to take. Even so, grab it.
  There is no limit to the amount of items you can carry at any given time.

- Pay attention to what the game is telling you. Most of the characters can 
  give you all sorts of interesting information about the land and its 
  occupants, as well as where you should be going or what you should do next.

- Use common sense. Don't swim in treacherous waters, don't walk in front of
  statues that are out for blood, and don't eat anything poisonous.

- If you can't figure out a puzzle, try using every item you've got on it. 
  Games like this are full of puzzles with weird solutions, and even if you 
  don't have the right item for the task at hand, the game might drop a hint as
  to what the right item might be.

- If you're completely stuck, go do something else for a while. Sometimes you
  need a different item, or you've got to trigger another event first. On the
  same line of thought, sometimes you just need to return to the real world for
  a bit. Get back to the game with a fresh outlook later.

- Hold on to your manual. Many of the puzzles are impossibly hard without the 
  information contained within. Don't lose it, 'cause I can't legally tell you
  anything in it. 

- Get to know the islanders. Some of them will give you something if you help
  them out. Some will alter the game's ending. Most can tell you all sorts of
  useful things. A few can determine the entire path of the game.

- Not everyone in the Land of the Green Isles is friendly. Those that aren't 
  are generally easy to spot. Don't follow their advice, but don't discard it,
  either. Their brutal shoves in the wrong direction could prove to be a gentle
  nudge in the right one. Often, they'll bring your attention to something you
  might've overlooked.

- When going forward isn't getting you anywhere, go back. Revisit areas you've
  already been through. Things change. Maybe there's something new to pick up.

- If something seems important, it probably is. Keep it in mind as you tackle
  the puzzles in the immediate area, as well as those much later in the game.

               -------------------------------------------------
                     .:*~*:.  { 6.  Walkthrough }  .:*~*:.
               -------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================

King's Quest VI is the first game in the series to feature multiple outcomes. 
While the next game also has two endings, the complexity of Heir Today, Gone
Tomorrow is far beyond that of The Princeless Bride. In addition to the many 
different endings you can experience, there are two separate paths to follow to
get there. Around the midpoint of the game, these two paths split. The shorter
path will not get you as many points as the longer one, but it does not take as
much time to complete. 

In order to distinguish arbitrary tasks, a marker of =*= has been used. Most of 
the time, the following text affects the longer path of the game, but 
occasionally, it will alter the ending or simply give you a few optional 
points. For more information on the endings and how your actions affect them, 
see the Endings section later in the document. Once the walkthrough splits, the 
only optional things will be ending- or point-related. If you plan to take the
longer path, it is generally best to do all optional tasks. While they might 
have no effect on the final outcome of the game on the shorter path, they could
be necessary for completion on the longer one. 


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Isle of the Crown, Part 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
The game begins as Alexander wakes up on a beach strewn with debris from his
wrecked ship. He's been stripped of everything but the clothes on his back. 
Let's change that by grabbing his royal insignia ring, which is glinting in the
sand nearby. The plank on the right side of the screen is hiding a box, so move
it out of the way and peek inside. Most of the contents of the box have spilled
out, but a lone copper coin remains. Pick it up. Behind Alexander, a path winds
away over a hill. Follow it.


Crossroads
----------
While this screen is empty at the moment, you'll be visiting it frequently if 
you want to receive the most points and get the best ending. For now, head for
the castle by taking the path on the right side.


Castle
------
At the castle doors, two guard dogs are standing at attention. They aren't up to
killing Alex at the moment, but that could change. Don't make them angry. Talk 
to them. They'll be able to tell you where you are, and confirm your beliefs 
that Cassima resides within these very walls.

=*= The guards don't take too kindly to strangers, so they won't let you into 
    the castle right away. You'll have to prove your true identity to get an 
    audience with the vizier. Alex seems to have left his passport in his other
    pants, so you'll have to flash your insignia ring instead. This seems to be
    enough, as the guard captain will soon arrive to take you to the vizier.

You won't be getting back into the castle now, but there's something a bit 
suspect about the vizier. It would probably be a good idea to stick around.
Cassima might still need your help. Besides, there's no way you're getting out 
of here without a ship, and you don't have one. Return to the crossroads and 
take the other path to reach the village.


Village
-------
The village is small, holding nothing but two shops and a lamp seller. This is
the land's main shopping district, which really doesn't say much for the 
economy. For now, head for the second shop, Ali's Books. Open the door, and go
in.


Ali's Books
-----------
There isn't much to do here, given that we're broke and on a mission. Even so,
speak to the owner. He can tell you a little bit about the land, but for the 
real dirt, you'll have to talk to the ferryman. Keep talking. He might have a
few interesting hints to share. Of course, if you talk too much, he'll subtly
hint that he wants you to leave him alone.

=*= Look at the book on the counter to ask Ali about it. He'll offer to give it
    to Alexander in exchange for a rare book. Given the nature of the book on 
    the counter, that's a pretty fair deal. 

    Go check out the books on the rightmost shelf, where the merchant was 
    standing as you walked in. This is the poetry section, and Alexander will
    gladly pull out a book about love. After reading a few poems, he'll put it
    back, but as he does so, a page will fall to the floor. Grab it. It's the
    poem that Alexander liked. 

    Finally, head over to the small table near the door. Other visitors have
    helped themselves to most of the free books, but there's one left. One 
    never knows when an incredibly boring book could come in handy, so pick it
    up. Ali would be glad to see it go.

Open the door and return to the street. The pawn shop would be fun to visit, 
but not now. Head through the key-shaped archway to the north. 


Mansion
-------
This large house is home to a skittish servant-girl, who spends every spare
moment tending to the roses. For now, she is too far away to make any contact
with Alexander. As such, ignore her and follow the path off to the west. 


Dock
----
As you enter this screen, you'll witness a small boy diving off the docks. 
He'll invite you to join him, even offering to show you the way to the next 
island, but if you examine the water, Alexander will note that there is 
probably an undertow. Instead of jumping to certain death, ignore the boy, and
knock on the door of the ferry. When the ferryman opens the door, speak to him.
The ferry isn't running at the moment, but he'll invite you in to chat. 


Ferry
-----
Once both he and Alex have taken their seats, begin the interrogation. The most
important thing he's got to say involves a magic map, which he'll mention the 
first time you click on him. Even so, keep talking until he begins to repeat 
himself. He knows all sorts of  useful facts about the islands, as well as a 
few things about Cassima. Once he finishes talking, try taking the rabbit's 
foot on the table. The ferryman will gladly give it to you. Leave the cabin, 
and return to the village. 


Village
-------
While it seems as if nothing has changed since your last visit, Alexander spent
quite a bit of time talking to the ferryman. Enter the book store. 


Ali's Books
-----------
=*= The chair in the center of the room is now occupied by a silly-looking man 
    named Jollo. Head over to him and have a chat. His concern for the princess
    should be enough to clue you in to his royal connection, so show him your 
    ring. He'll tell you everything he knows. Pay attention. When he leaves,
    follow him out. 


Village
-------
If you'd like to, you can follow Jollo all the way back to the castle. However,
there is no reason to do so, and no knowledge is gained by doing it. Open the 
door to the pawn shop and go in.


Pawn Shop
---------
As you enter the pawn shop, the owner will call out a greeting. If you've 
played other games in the King's Quest series, have a look around. Most of the
items for sale in the pawn shop are direct references to the previous 
adventures.

Speak to the merchant, and Alexander will ask about the magic map the ferryman
mentioned. This is a very valuable artifact, but he's willing to trade. You'll
have to part with the only valuable item on your person if you want it. Try 
giving him your royal insignia ring. As the merchant hands over the map, he'll 
offer to trade back the ring in exchange for something of equal value, and 
explain the precise details of using the map. 

The cloaked man will dart up to the counter to grab a mint, then flee. A short
cut-scene, taking place at the castle, will give away the old man's true 
identity. When you regain control of Alexander, take a mint for yourself, and 
show your copper coin to the pawn shop owner. You'll be offered four items in
exchange for it. For now, take the mechanical nightingale, and leave the store.
Go to the crossroads.


Crossroads
----------
During your conversation with Jollo, the clown mentioned Cassima's pet 
nightingale, Sing-Sing. If what he said was true, the tiny bird could be used
to transfer a message to the mourning princess. 

=*= Use the mechanical nightingale on the real one to befriend it. You'll be
    needing its assistance later.

Return to the village. 


Village
-------
As you walk in, the pawn shop owner will step out of his store with a basket of
junk. He'll dump it into a clay pot near the steps, then go back inside. One 
man's trash is another man's treasure. Dig through the useless magical stuff to
find a bottle of invisible ink, then head back to the crossroads and south to 
the beach.


Beach
-----
The pawn shop owner told Alex that the magic map could only be used out in the
open and in clear sight of water. The beach meets both requirements (as does 
the dock near the ferry), so let's try visiting another island. Use the magic
map, either by touching it in your inventory or selecting it and using it on
Alexander. Once you have it open, select the Island of the Sacred Mountain. 
You'll be whisked off to its shores in a matter of seconds.  



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                      Isle of the Sacred Mountain, Part 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
You're currently standing at the foot of the Cliffs of Logic. We'll be tackling
these later. For now, just grab the flower on the left side of the screen.

=*= Grab the black feather at the other end of the beach, too.

Pull out your map again. This time, head for the Isle of Wonder. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            Isle of Wonder, Part 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
This wide beach is the only area open to you until you manage to get past the
island's guardians. They aren't accepting visitors at the moment, so you might
have a bit of trouble getting past them. You should have everything to do it
already, but there are a few optional things to do on the beach.

=*= The oysters on the left side of the screen are sleeping quite peacefully,
    but one's eyes are still open. Speak to it, and it will complain of mouth
    pains. Alexander's no dentist, but he might be able to help the poor thing
    sleep through sheer boredom. Pull out the boring book and put it to use on
    the oyster. As it begins to yawn, you should catch a glimpse of a pearl. 
    Grab it while the shell is open. 

    Floating slightly out in the water is something pink. The current will 
    sweep our hero away if he attempts to wade out to get it, but if you wait a
    few seconds, the mysterious item will be washed ashore. As soon as it's 
    close enough that Alexander won't have to get his toes wet to pick it up, 
    snag it. It's carrying a message saying, "Where are you going?" Very 
    strange, but something we'll deal with later.

Try to leave the screen by going either north or east, and you'll soon be met
by the guards. These strange creatures, while possessing all of the five major
senses, each excel at a single one. They trust this sense above all others. 
Before you meet them, make sure you have the flower of stench from the Isle
of the Sacred Mountain, and the mechanical nightingale, mint, rabbit's foot, 
and invisible ink from the Isle of the Crown.

When faced with the scent gnome, pull out the stinky flower. Its odor will 
overpower yours, leading him to believe that you're actually the flower. The
gnome of hearing can be easily tricked into thinking you're a nightingale by
winding up the mechanical one and holding it out to him. The taste gnome will
gladly let a sugary sweet go by, so give him your mint. Your rabbit's foot can
trick the touch gnome into thinking you're naught but a furry, little bunny. To
deal with the final gnome, that of sight, you'll face your first real 
challenge: disguise of appearance. This is easy enough to overcome; just shake
the contents of your empty bottle over yourself to disappear, fooling the last
gnome. If you blow your cover in any way, the gnomes will toss you out to sea.

After the gnomes leave, you're free to explore the island. Celebrate your 
freedom by heading east.


Point
-----
The pointed end of the comma-shaped island is full of all sorts of interesting 
books and strange creatures. In the lower-left corner, a Black Widow spider 
tends her web, and in the center, a towering stack of books beckons Alexander.
A swarm of spelling bees buzzes overhead.

=*= The bookstore owner was willing to trade the spell book for one equally 
    rare, and there's bound to be such a book in this pile. Try to take one,
    and the owner will pop out. He'll rattle off a list of things that he'll
    take in exchange for a book, but we haven't picked any of them up yet.

    When the Bookworm disappears, examine the spider web in the corner. There
    is a piece of paper caught in it, but if you just try to grab the paper,
    you'll be bitten by the spider. Instead, yank the loose cord on the bottom
    of her web, and when she runs to tend to that, grab the paper. Look 
    quickly; the wind will take it away fairly soon. Alex remembers what it 
    said. Do you?

Return to the beach. This time, go north.


Swamp
-----
The swamp is a relatively calm place at the moment. There isn't much going on,
so go west. 

=*= Take a bottle of milk from the milkweed patch at the base of the dogwood 
    tree before leaving the swamp.


Garden
------
As is to be expected on an island such as this, all of the plants here are 
alive. You can speak to them if you'd like to, but none have anything useful to
say. For now, just grab a head of iceberg lettuce from the patch on the ground,
and head back to the beach.


Beach
-----
There's not much time to waste. The lettuce you picked up is melting rapidly; 
we'll have to hurry to find a place to use it. Whip out the magic map and 
teleport to the Isle of the Beast. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Isle of the Beast, Part 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
The Isle of the Beast is a rather hostile place, and this beach is as far as 
most travellers have gotten in years. We'll have to get past this, or Alex will
never finish his quest.

=*= As you land, you should hear the same music that played at the Point on the
    Isle of Wonder. This could have something to do with that rare book you're 
    after. In fact, one of the items the Bookworm requested is nearby. The 
    strange, green creature hanging from a tree branch is a dangling 
    participle.

    Speak to the little guy to hear a conversation resembling one you might 
    have with Yoda. When he stops talking, show him the strange message you 
    pulled out of the water on the Isle of Wonder. He'll finish the sentence
    and crawl into Alexander's shirt.

Follow the path that leads off to the north.


Boiling Pond
------------
Any further progress will be halted as you stumble across a pond of boiling 
water. If you try to go wading in there, you'll scald yourself, so it's best
not to do so just yet. Instead, toss in your head of iceberg lettuce to cool it
down, then wade across.

=*= Take the lamp dangling from the tree branch.

Head north. 


Garden
------
As you get here, the local gardener will look up and greet you. He'll invite 
you to come over, but something about the statue on the wall and the glint in 
his eyes leads me to believe that doing so would be a bad idea. Instead, ignore
him and pick up the fallen brick lying at the base of the wall. Return to the
beach. 


Beach
-----
Use your magic map to revisit the Isle of Wonder. Alternatively, if you're 
taking the short path, you can skip the next section and just go to the Isle of
the Crown. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            Isle of Wonder, Part 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
The guardians no longer seem to notice new arrivals, which is just as well, 
since they took the last mint, and you're all out of invisible ink. Pay a visit
to the point.


Point
-----
=*= Click on the book stacks to bring out Bookworm, and hand over the dnagling
    participle. He'll give you a rare book for your troubles. Try reading it.
    There's a page missing. That border looks familiar... 

Go back to the beach.


Beach
-----
Pull out the map and head for the Isle of the Crown. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Isle of the Crown, Part 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
Not much has changed since the last time we were here, but there is plenty of 
stuff to do nonetheless. Start by paying a visit to the village. 


Village
-------
There's an announcement posted beside the archway that you might want to read.
Check it out, then enter the book store.


Pawn Shop
---------
Trade your mechanical nightingale for the flute.

=*= The pearl is extremely valuable, and the pawn shop owner will gladly give
    back your ring in exchange for it. Hand it over.

Exit the pawn shop. Head for the book store.


Ali's Books
-----------
=*= Jollo is back in the chair by the fire, and Alex will run to greet him. 
    He's got quite a few things to tell you, so listen up. When he leaves, give
    the shopkeeper your rare book. The spell book is now yours. 

Leave the village, and go to the crossroads. 


Crossroads
----------
If you befriended Sing Sing earlier, you'll be able to use her to send messages
and the like to Cassima. However, you won't get to reap the benefits unless she
knows who's sending her these things.

=*= Give your ring to the nightingale, who will fly off to the castle. In a few
    moments, she'll return with a ribbon from Cassima. Take this, and examine 
    it to find a hair. Note the snake in the tree that watched this exchange...
    Hold out the love poem you found in the bookstore to the bird. When she 
    comes back, she is carrying a letter. Pick it up, and read it. It's a bit
    discouraging, but don't let it get to you. 

Head for the beach and pay another visit to the Isle of Wonder. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            Isle of Wonder, Part 3
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
We've done everything on the point, but hardly anything in the garden and 
surrounding areas. There's plenty of stuff to do there, so head north and 
follow the path. 


Garden
------
Sitting on the wall on the right side is a funny looking hole-in-the-wall. He's
a shy little guy. Try to pick him up. It will scurry over to the wallflowers, 
which are so shy that they'll cluster together at your approach, completely 
blocking access to the wall (and the hole) behind them. Alex will have to charm
the flowers to get to the hold, and nothing works better than music. Whip out
your flute and start playing. As the flowers sway, snag the hole and pocket it.

=*= Pick up the rotten tomato lying at the base of the tomato vines. Ignore its
    protests. Beside the tomatoes, a patch of baby's tears sits dry-eyed. One 
    of the recipes in the spell book calls for salt water not from the sea, and
    tears are pretty salty, but how would one make a baby cry? Easy! Give one 
    baby the bottle of milk from the patch at the base of the dogwood tree, and
    the rest will start weeping. You're a bad person, you know. Collect the 
    tears from one of the crying babies using your lamp. Finally, grab the 
    tea cup sitting on the chair in the corner near the wallflowers. 

The yellow gate to the north leads to yet another area on the Isle of Wonder. 
Open it up, and go through.


Chessboard Land
---------------
Speak to the guards, who will tell you a tiny bit about the checkered land that
lies beyond. As they finish speaking, the twin queens of the island will 
appear. After a small argument, they'll turn to Alexander, who doesn't want to
take sides. They'll leave rather haughtily. The red queen will drop her scarf 
as she turns around. Pick it up, and leave the area. Head for the swamp.


Swamp
-----
=*= Use your tea cup to dip out a small quantity of swamp ooze. As you do so, 
    the stick-in-the-mud will call out to tell you that what you're actually 
    collecting is swamp muck. Bump-on-a-log will soon join the conversation, 
    which quickly escalates into a very short verbal battle. When they stop 
    fighting, speak to Bump-on-a-log. Try throwing Rotten Tomato at Stick-in-
    the-mud. When Bump-on-a-log warns you of the swamp's width, give the tomato
    to him instead. He'll toss off a fastball that hits Stick-in-the-mud right 
    on the head, and both he and Rotten Tomato will retaliate by lobbing swamp 
    ooze at Bumpie. Once the chaos ends and peace is reached, collect some of 
    the ooze with your cup.

Your travels on the Isle of Wonder are over for now, so head to the beach.


Beach
-----
Your flute will be fairly useless throughout the rest of the game. Instead of
toting around a piece of junk, teleport to the Isle of the Crown.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Isle of the Crown, Part 3
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
Nothing on the island has changed, so just head straight for the pawn shop in
the village.


Pawn Shop
---------
Give your flute to the shopkeeper. When he presents his selection of items to 
you, choose the tinder box. Go back to the beach.


Beach
-----
It's finally time to explore the Isle of the Sacred Mountain. Use your map to
get there. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                      Isle of the Sacred Mountain, Part 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: FOR THE FOLLOWING SECTION, YOU WILL NEED THE MANUAL THAT CAME WITH YOUR
GAME. COPYRIGHT LAWS PROHIBIT ME FROM REPUBLISHING ANY OF THE MATERIAL 
CONTAINED WITHIN, BUT THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THE OFFICIAL MANUAL IS 
REQUIRED TO SOLVE MOST OF THE PUZZLES OF THE CLIFFS OF LOGIC.


Beach
-----
The cliffs looming over your head provide no clear handholds, so they might be
a bit of a challenge to climb. Instead of tackling them right away, examine the
writing on the wall behind you. 

The first puzzle of the cliffs of logic says:
 "IGNORANCE 
  KILLS
  WISDOM 
  ELEVATES"

Check your manual. It gives a rather obvious clue, which can be found under the
Logic Cliffs subheading. It is the first challenge. Punch in one letter from 
each word to spell out the most obvious word in the clue from the manual. The 
first steps of the Cliffs of Logic will protrude from the wall, giving you 
access to the next screen, and the next challenge. Save your game and walk up
each individual step.


Cliffs of Logic
---------------
When you reach the final step on the next screen, examine the etchings on the
wall. The game provides you with an incomplete sentence, which says, "A master
of languages will ____." Once again, refer to your manual. This time, look 
under the Ancient Ones subheading. Near the top of the third paragraph, you'll 
find a completed version of the quote. You need to complete the sentence with 
the word 'Soar,' using the Ancient Ones' alphabet. Using the alphabet found in 
your manual, punch in the letters S, O, A, and R (in that order). Once again,
you will be able to reach another puzzle. 

Save your game again, and ascend to meet your next challenge. This time, there
is no message on the cliffside; only four small buttons carved into the stone.
Once again, the manual is the key. Under the clue from the first challenge, 
you'll find the solution to this puzzle in the form of a riddle. The Stones of
Stealth, as these are called, must be pushed in the correct order. The order
is given in the final line of the riddle. The stones are ranked in age with 
oldest being the one on the left and youngest the one on the right. Save your
game before you move on to the next screen.

Once again, you will be faced with an alphabet puzzle. This time, you are given
only the clue, "Sacred Four." Easy enough. Look under the Ancient Ones 
subheading, and find the spot where it lists the purest of the symbols. Each of
these is related to a letter of the alphabet. Input D, O, Q, and G, using the 
alphabet of the Ancient Ones. Save and continue. 

The final puzzle of the cliffs of logic is much like the first one. You are 
given the following phrase:
 "ALL SILENT 
  CRY THE
  NOBLE 
  BOULDERS"

Find the fifth clue, which is listed under the first and third clues, and press
in one letter from each word to spell out the emphasized word in the clue.


Clifftop
--------
As Alexander steps onto solid ground, an old lady will greet him, and invite 
him to join her in the consumption of poisonous berries. Uh, I'll pass. Wait 
for her to leave.

Crawl into the hole beside the nightshade bush. When you get inside, light your
tinder box. Another hole at the back of the cave leads to another section. This
one holds a window, and growing on the ledge is a peppermint plant. Take some 
leaves, and crawl back out of the cave. 

Walk north, and you will run into two of the royal guards. They'll take you off
to speak to the lord and lady of the island. Since you fulfilled the first part
of the Oracle's prophecy, they'll let you live, but you'll have to defeat the 
minotaur to do so. If you've got the tinder box from the Isle of the Crown, the
Red Queen's scarf and the hole-in-the-wall from the Isle of Wonder, and the
brick from the Isle of the Beast, you're ready to tackle the catacombs, and 
Alexander will say so. Otherwise, you'll be returned to the base of the cliff 
to gather these things. Simply return to the island when you've got them if 
this is the case.


Catacombs, Lv. 1
----------------
The maze of the Winged Ones can be a deadly place. The place is full of pits 
and traps, so you'll have to watch your step. Unfortunately, you'll fall 
instantly to your death if you step into a pit room, so save frequently. 
Keeping a map and consistently plotting your current location helps immensely.
Begin by heading north two screens. 

=*= Turn to the right and go east twice. Another north will take you to a room
    with three skeleton lying on the floor. The skull nearby is free to anyone 
    interested, so pick it up, then go south once and west twice. 

Now, go north one more time, and turn left. You will enter a tile maze. If you
try to stand on any tile that isn't part of the solution, you will trigger the
spikes nested in the walls. These will fire straight into whoever set them off,
killing instantly. Save your game before you attempt this puzzle. 

Open your manual. After the Cliffs of Logic clues, there is a small section on
the Catacombs. At the end of this is a short message about roses and doves and 
the like. This is actually the solution to the puzzle. Step onto the rose tile
just north of the one you're currently standing on, then the one southwest of
this, and finally the rose tile in the center of the bottom row. From there, go
north once to the scythe tile, and again to the crown above it. To the upper-
left is a dove tile; step on this, then on the skull and crossbones just above
the blank tile near the exit, then onto the exit tile. Save your game, and 
leave the room.

=*= Go west once to find a girl who appears to be Lady Celeste. She'll tell you
    that she's found the secret exit, then head off to the left. Don't follow 
    her; it leads right to a pit. Return to the previous room to continue your
    quest. 

Go north to find yourself in a room with a shield. Take this, then go north 
twice.

=*= Keep going north until you can go no further, then turn left. Follow this
    path until you reach a dead-end. One of the skeletons here has ancient 
    coins covering its eyes. These are of no use to him, so grab them, then go
    right two screens and south one.

Turn right and enter the room on the east side. This is another trap. As you 
step in, the doors slam shut behind Alex, and the ceiling slowly begins to 
come down. Quickly pull out your brick and throw it into the gears to screw up
the trap, and you're safe. Exit via the doorway on the right side. Go east and
north once each, then east twice. The seemingly solid floor will fall away to
reveal a pit. Through this, Alexander will gain entry to the next level of the 
Catacombs. 


Catacombs, Lv. 2
----------------
When you land, you'll find yourself in complete darkness. Two white spots
representing eyes indicate Alex's current position. Use your tinder box on the
eyes to light it, brightening the room. This level is much more straightforward
than the other one. Simply go left five times, then south twice and east once.

This room, which is a dead end, should produce a message that says the strange
sounds seem as if they're in the next room. Use your hole-in-the-wall to peer 
into the room, and you'll witness the minotaur hitting a secret lever behind a
tapestry to open the doorway to his lair. 

Go west three times, then south twice, east and south once each, and east 
twice. Turn north for a single screen, then go right. Travel two more screens 
to the north to find the room with the tapestry. Touch the wall hanging to find
the lever, and Alex will enter the minotaur's room. 


Catacombs, Lair
---------------
The minotaur has Lady Celeste tied down on a table, and he's not really up to
dealing with newcomers. In fact, he'll prepare to charge you as soon as he sees
you. Call his attention to yourself, and Alex will back up to the pit of fire 
in the corner. Pull out the Red Queen's scarf. Use it on the minotaur, who will
charge it, miss, and fall into the fire. No big loss there. Alex will deal with
Lady Celeste, and the two will leave the catacombs via the minotaur's secret
exit. 


Oracle
------
After a ridiculously long cut-scene involving the oracle and all sorts of other
such things, you'll be conveniently dropped at the bottom of the Cliffs of 
Logic.


Beach
-----
The Oracle suggested a visit to the Druids on the Isle of the Mists, but Alex 
isn't prepared to deal with them just yet. Even so, their island has now 
appeared on the magic map, and even if you don't plan on meeting the residents,
it couldn't hurt to scout out the land a bit. Go there. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Isle of the Mists, Part 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
The mists and music of this island lend a rather haunted atmosphere to the 
whole thing. Two paths lead away from the beach; the one to the northwest takes
you to the village, and the one to the northeast leads to the ceremonial 
circle. For now, go to the village. While the game claims the path is to the 
northwest, you'll actually have to click closer to due west to get Alexander to
go there.


Village
-------
Hanging from one of the houses of the village, you should see a scythe. Pick it
up.

=*= The fire pit in the center of the village is currently unlit. Take a piece
    of coal from it. 

Return to the beach.


Beach
-----
The only main island we have yet to fully explore is the Isle of the Beast. Use
your map to get there.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Isle of the Beast, Part 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
Head north, across the no-longer-boiling pond, to reach the garden.


Garden
------
As you enter the screen, the stone archer on the wall will turn to aim at you.
Take out the shield you picked up in the catacombs and use it on the archer. 
Alex will pass through the gate, guarding himself with the shield. And it's a
darn good thing, too.

On the other side of the gate, step up to the gazebo. As you do so, the rose
bushes surrounding it will suddenly grow across your path, barring further 
progress. This island definitely isn't sending out friendly vibes. Use the 
scythe from the Isle of the Mists to hack away the shrubbery. Once he clears
the path, he'll step through into the hedge maze.


Hedge Maze
----------
Don't worry, the hedge maze isn't anything you have to worry about. You have a
much greater task instead. Since you just trespassed onto Beast's island, he's
naturally a bit on the unpleasant side. Beast will inform you of a curse that's
now been transferred to you. You've nothing but a few short hours (that's in-
game; by the normal clock, you've only got about ten minutes) to find a woman 
willing to marry such a hideous creature as Beast. Your new acquaintance will 
give you a ring to give to his bride-to-be, and send you off on your final 
quest. Leave through the gazebo exit to the south.


Garden
------
If you're going to woo any single maidens, you'll need to charm them. You can
start by grabbing one of the white roses growing from the hedge on your way 
out. Head back to the beach.


Beach
-----
Maybe you haven't been paying much attention, but the single female population
in this country is rather lacking. In fact, the only one we've even seen thus
far is the slave girl with the thing for roses. Interesting coincidence, this.
Head for the Isle of the Crown, and waste no time in doing so.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Isle of the Crown, Part 4
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
As soon as you set foot on the sand, head for the village, and Ali's Books. 


Ali's Books
-----------
=*= Although time is short, one can never resist a visit with Jollo. The court
    clown is in his usual place by the fireside in Ali's Books; stop by and say
    hello. Jollo has a warning for you concerning tightened security at the 
    vizier's orders; apparently, he's been telling the guards that you're a bad
    guy. Jollo suggests you fake either an exit or your death. He also mentions
    Shamir's lamp, but getting to it would be impossible... right? 

Leave the book store. Head through the archway to reach the mansion.


Mansion
-------
As you enter the screen, the blonde maiden you saw earlier can be seen tending 
to the roses along the low wall that surrounds the yard. You could try speaking
to her, but she's too shy to talk back. Instead, cut straight to the chase and
hand over the white rose you snagged on your way off the Beast's island. You'll
win her over with the flower. From there, all you've got to do is give her the
ring. Alexander will take her to the island, and you'll be saved from a life as
a warthog. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Isle of the Beast, Part 3
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hedge Maze
----------
After a cut-scene, you'll find yourself in the hedge maze again. A mixture of 
Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast has presented Alexander with the 
opportunity to be a drag queen. You'll have to choose whether to be one or not,
but we'll deal with that in a minute. 

=*= If you haven't been in contact with Cassima, then you didn't pull the hair
    from her ribbon. You should now find one on Beauty's dress. If you have the
    hair ribbon, the hair will not be on the clothes; it will either be a 
    separate inventory item, or it will still be attached to the ribbon. Either
    way, you'll need a hair on the long path.

    As long as you're in the area, dump the sacred water from the Oracle into 
    the hunter's lamp, then use it to collect some falling water from the 
    fountain nearby. Open your spell book and cast the Make Rain Spell on the 
    second page.

Once you're done here, head back to the garden.


Garden
------
=*= Collect another white rose.

Return to the beach.


Beach
-----
Set out for the Isle of Wonder. We have a few things to pick up before making
the final decision on short path or long. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            Isle of Wonder, Part 4
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
Go north through the swamp and head for the garden.


Garden
------
Since this garden is a bit magical, items tend to come and go as they please.
Currently, there is a tiny bottle sitting on the table near the snap dragons. 
Pick it up, then open the gates to Chessboard Land.


Chessboard Land
---------------
As you enter the screen, a fanfare will sound, and the twin queens will 
approach. When they reach Alexander, they'll once again give him a chance to
prove his intelligence.

=*= If you picked up the coal on the Isle of the Mists, hand it over to the
    White Queen. In return, she'll give you a fine spoiled egg. Quite a nice 
    prize, that.

Return to the beach.


Beach
-----
At this point, the paths split. If you want to take the short path, head for 
the Isle of the Crown. If you don't have the spell book, you'll have to take 
the short path, although you can still go that way if you do have it. If it's
the long path you're after, you'll have to go to the Isle of the Mists, but 
first, you must cast the Rain spell from your spell book. Choose wisely. 



===============================================================================
                                  Short Path
===============================================================================
                           Isle of the Crown, Part 5
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
When you reach the island, go north to the crossroads.


Crossroads
----------
=*= Send the second rose you picked up (if you even bothered to do so) to
    Cassima by way of the nightingale. 

Turn left and head for the village. When you get there, go to the pawn shop.


Pawn Shop
---------
=*= As usual, the creepy old man in the black cloak is hanging around the shop.
    Even Alex has figured out that this guy is the genie by this point, and 
    he'll gladly drink from the bottle from the garden of the Isle of Wonder if 
    you tell him to do so. In the cut-scene following his apparent suicide, 
    you'll witness Shamir's report of the "death." Note the lamp on the desk. 

Trade your tinder box for the mechanical nightingale, and leave the shop.


Village
-------
=*= Speak to the lamp seller on the street. You can trade your old hunter's 
    lamp for a fresh, new one. Choose one identical to that which you just saw 
    on Alhazred's desk. If you weren't paying attention, it's a tall, blue one,
    near the right end of the pole.

    Note that this will have NO EFFECT on the game's ending on this path. It is
    strictly for point value. Which leads one to wonder... Why do something for 
    point value on a path that will end short of the maximum point mark, 
    anyway?

Exit the village and go to the castle.


Castle
------
As Alexander approaches, a group of brightly-dressed servant women will be 
admitted into the castle to help with the wedding preparations. See that little
hut near the path? Go in, and try on Beauty's dress. Voila. Instant wench-look!
While in drag, Alex will step up to the castle doors, which will be opened for 
him. That was almost too easy...


Castle, Foyer
-------------
As soon as you enter the castle, you'll be berated by another worker. Ignore 
him, and head up the stairs on the left side of the room.


Castle, Upstairs Western Hallway
--------------------------------
The guards will complete one full trip down the hallway, talking about Cassima,
then turn around. Stay in place at the top of the stairs for now. When they 
begin their second circuit, take out your mechanical nightingale and use it on
them. Immediately run into the alcove beside you. Inside, duck behind the 
column by using the hand on it to avoid detection. Once it's safe to come out, 
pick up the portrait, and take the nail behind it. Run out into the hallway
again, and open the doorway across from the alcove.


Castle, Bedroom
---------------
This bedroom seems to be occupied, but Alexander can't tell whose it is. Oh 
well. Look at the chest at the foot of the bed, and pop it open using the nail
you pulled from the wall. Take a letter from the stack on the left side of the
trunk, and read it. Well, that certainly explains a lot.

=*= Open up the ebony box on the small table near the fireplace, and look at 
    the paper within. It reads 'Zebu'. Could this be some sort of code?

Leave the room and return to the hallway.


Castle, Upstairs Western Hallway
--------------------------------
Go north to reach the upper hallway.


Castle, Upstairs Northern Hallway
---------------------------------
As you enter this hallway, Alexander will hear muffled crying from behind the
nearby door. Speak to the door to investigate. It's Cassima! After a bit of 
talking, she'll ask for a weapon. Give her your dagger. It might be a good idea
to show the vizier's letter to her, too. Return to the western hallway.


Castle, Upstairs Western Hallway
--------------------------------
Head back to the alcove and stick your nail back into the wall. Hoist the 
painting back into place, and hide behind column as the guards walk by. They'll
run off to look into the matter of Shamir's treatment of Cassima. Leave the 
alcove and go downstairs. 


Castle, Foyer
-------------
Oh, no! The wedding has already started! As Alexander approaches the doors, 
Captain Saladin will step out to deal with him. Fortunately, he's a noble guy,
and will give you a few seconds to save your skin just because of who you are.
Flash him the letter you stole from the vizier. He'll take you into the throne
room to see the wedding.


Castle, Throne Room
-------------------
Cassima is just taking her vows as you enter. Call out to her to stop the 
ceremony. Just when you think you'll get the upper hand in this whole 
situation, her eyes will flash a lovely, golden hue. For some reason, I don't
think they were always this color...

As Saladin is drawing his sword, pull out the mirror you got from Beast and 
show it to the princess. Did she always have facial hair? I think not! Follow
the vizier out of the room, and chase him up the stairs. 


Castle, Tower
-------------
The real princess is at the top of the tower, tied up. Unfortunately, she'll
have to stay that way for the time being. Alexander will have to deal with the
more direct threats of the vizier and his genie.

Shamir is simple enough to deal with. Simply give him the peppermint leaf you
found in the cave on the Isle of the Sacred Mountain to distract him. This will
have a drug-like effect on him, and he'll send himself off into oblivion with a
ball of energy.

You now must defeat Alhazred. With his genie gone, he'll pull his own sword 
from its sheath. Grab the ornamental sword mounted on the wall behind you, and 
use it on your opponent. A fairly impressive swordfight ensues, during which 
Cassima manages to free herself. Just as it seems as if all is lost, she'll 
save the day. Whack Alhazred upside the head with your sword to knock him out.
Enjoy the ending.

===============================================================================
                           Isle of the Mists, Part 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
Well, being caught by the Druids can't possibly be good...


Stone Circle
------------
The Druids are in the middle of a rain ceremony, and Alexander's dangling over
a bonfire. Perhaps rain is exactly what is needed to get him out of this mess.
Alex, in a fit of desperation, will beat back the flames with Beauty's clothes.
Guess you won't be using those anymore. Fortunately, if it's hot enough to set
the cage on fire, it's hot enough to boil the water in Alexander's pocket. The
Rain Spell we prepared earlier kicks in, saving the day. 

Believing you to be some sort of nature wizard, they'll let you go. Listen to
what the Arch Druid has to say. When he finishes speaking, scoop up some embers
with the skull you grabbed in the Catacombs on the Isle of the Sacred Mountain.
Add the spoiled egg from the queens of the Isle of Wonder, and the hair you got
from either Beauty's clothes or Cassima's hair ribbon. Go to the beach.


Beach
-----
There is only one place in the Land of the Green Isles where poisonous plants 
were very clearly brought to our attention. If you were paying attention, 
you'll remember the old lady (or, more specifically, the genie disguised as an
old lady) at the top of the logic cliffs on the Isle of the Sacred Mountain. 
She was trying everything in her power to get you to eat those nightshade 
berries. Obviously, you didn't do it. Regardless, go visit that island.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                      Isle of the Sacred Mountain, Part 3
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
Begin to climb the cliffs of logic. As you reach the top of the screen, the 
game will conveniently skip the rest of the rock-climbing bit, and you'll be
deposited at the top of the cliff. 


Clifftop
--------
Just as anticipated, Night Mare is feasting upon the deadly nightshade bush.
Whip out your spell book and cast the third spell, Charming a Creature of 
the Night. Having hypnotized the horse, climb aboard and prepare to be whisked
off to the creature's homeland.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Realm of the Dead
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Landing Point
-------------
Night Mare will deposit Alex in a rather unfriendly-looking place. Two spirits
are wandering around in circles nearby. Speak to them; they are Cassima's 
parents, King Caliphim and Queen Allaria. Allaria will give you her ticket to
the underworld. Bid farewell to the chained rulers and head off to the east.
Be careful to avoid touching any of the wandering souls. Even if this _is_ the
Realm of the Dead, Alex is still alive. Let's help him stay that way.


Pathway
-------
As Alexander enters this pathway, he'll be faced with a grieving ghost. Speak 
to her to learn of her plight. Apparently her dead son never made it all the 
way to the Realm of the Dead. She'll give you his handkerchief, and request 
that you give it to him should you encounter him in your travels. When she goes
away, follow the path to its end.


Entrance
--------
Two skeletons monitor the incoming souls in this area. One has a keychain on
his belt. One never knows when a skeleton key might come in handy. Getting it 
might be a bit tricky, though. 

Rather than shuffling through the line like the rest of the dead folks, have a
look at those bones on the right side of the screen. They look suspiciously 
xylophone-like. Grab the "mallets" sitting nearby, and charm the guardians 
with your music. Pick up the skeleton key from the ground, then give Queen 
Allaria's ticket to the second skeleton, and proceed into the heart of the 
Realm of the Dead.


River Styx, Pathway
-------------------
The black water of the River Styx greets you in this foreboding place. Ignore 
it, and take a look at the fallen knight on the path. This seems to be the same
guy the Druids told you about. Take a closer look, and grab his gauntlet. 
Follow the twisting path to the next screen.


River Styx, Ferry
-----------------
Finally, we've reached a point close enough to the water to collect some of it.
Use your tea cup to scoop some up, then take a look at the guy in the rowboat. 
This must be Charon, ferryman of the dead. You need his services, but he 
doesn't work for free. Fortunately, you've been toting around some dead man's 
coins since your Catacomb expedition. Pay him off with those. After a lonely
journey, you'll be dropped off at the Gate.


Gate
----
The twin doors at the top of this pathway lead to Death himself. Naturally, he
won't just let you in. You'll need to prove yourself first. Try opening it 
anyway; it will morph into a more talkative form. Speak, but keep your 
distance.

To prove yourself to the Gate, you must answer a riddle. I hope you were paying
attention to the rare book, as its missing page matched the border of the scrap
of paper you pulled from the spiderweb on the Isle of Wonder. Even if you 
didn't notice, it's a fairly simple riddle of the type in which you must ignore
the sentences as a whole and focus on the words given.

Shield your eyes if you want to solve the riddle yourself, as I'm about to give
the answer. Still reading? You shouldn't be. Shame on you for giving up so 
easily! Alright, enough of that. The answer is 'love'. Input each letter, give
your answer, and step into the presence of the Lord of the Dead.


Throne Room
-----------
Step up to the throne of the Lord of the Dead. His guards will escort you. When
given a chance to speak, throw down the gauntlet taken from the fallen knight. 
Alexander will request that he be allowed to leave with not only his own life, 
but those of Queen Allaria and King Caliphin as well. Such a demand must be met
with an equal challenge. Make Death cry.

Easy enough. Show him his own black heart. Hold out Beast's mirror to him. The
truth of the matter is enough to make any man weep. Even one who's been chained
to that throne for eternity. It's also enough to break the mirror. Fortunately,
it has served its purpose. Alexander and the rulers will now walk free. Ride
free. Whatever. Night Mare will take you back to the shores of the Isle of the
Crown. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Isle of the Crown, Part 5
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beach
-----
Leaving Alex to save the day, Caliphim and Allaria will take off to do what 
they can to save the land. Head for the crossroads.


Crossroads
----------
=*= As of yet, Sing Sing is still perched on her bough. Give her the second 
    white rose to deliver as a final gift.

Go to the pawn shop in the village.


Pawn Shop
---------
Enter the pawn shop. The mysterious cloaked man is lurking at the feet of the
bear again. Drain the mysterious bottle from the garden of the Isle of Wonder 
in his presence. Pulling off a spectacular suicide act aided by the heart-
stopping powers of the strange beverage, Alexander will fool the genie into 
thinking that he has killed himself. When you wake up, speak to the pawn shop
owner and trade in your tinder box for the paintbrush. Leave the shop.


Village
-------
=*= Jollo mentioned the genie's lamp in one of the conversations you had with
    him if you befriended him. In the last cut-scene, a tall, blue lamp was
    clearly visible on Alhazred's desk. Make the connection. Trade your old
    hunter's lamp to the peddler on the street. Take the second lamp from the
    right in return.

We have all we need for now. It is time to reenter the castle. Leave the 
village and visit the imperial residence.


Castle
------
The front door is obviously out. Instead of even trying, follow the path around
to the side of the castle.


Castle, Side Wall
-----------------
Use the jet-black feather you found at the base of the cliffs of logic near the
beginning of the game to stir the mess in your tea cup. You've now combined all
of the ingredients for the Magic Paint spell. Use your paintbrush on the large,
blank wall to show your appreciation for the vizier's hospitality. Speak the 
incantation from the spell book over your graffiti when you finish it. Open 
the door and go in.


Castle, Downstairs Western Hallway
----------------------------------
The basement of the castle is composed of four major areas. The door on the
east wall is currently locked by some unbreakable code. The three doors 
opposite the locked door are the cells of the dungeon. In the north hallway,
a single door leads to the guard room. In the south, one can find Jollo's room.

Occasionally, a guard patrol will come out of the room. If they spot you, they
will lock you in the dungeon. A staircase leading up to the first floor will 
deposit you into the foyer, in which two guards are gossiping away. They also
have no problem with locking poor Alex away for the rest of his young life. The
first time you are captured, Jollo will release you, assuming you befriended 
him. The second time, you can escape with your skeleton key. Beyond that, 
you're locked in for all eternity. Don't get caught.

Open the second dungeon door. 


Castle, Dungeon Cell #2
-----------------------
Inside this cell, the ghost of a young boy is weeping on the cot. This is the 
son of the woman you saw in the Realm of the Dead. Give him the handkerchief. 
He will tell you of a secret passage behind the man of steel, then fly away to
meet his mother. Leave the cell, and exit the hallway to the right.


Castle, Downstairs Eastern Hallway
----------------------------------
=*= On this screen, ignore the stairs, and enter the door on the east wall. 
    You'll find yourself in Jollo's room. After a short conversation, give him
    the lamp you got from the lampseller in the village. Leave the room. 

Head north to the third (and final) basement hallway. For some reason, nobody
bothered to include south in the layout.


Castle, Downstairs Northern Hallway
-----------------------------------
Entering the door here would be suicide. However, the young ghost mentioned
something about a man of steel, and the suit of armor in the corner seems to
fit that description. Try shaking its extended hand. Enter the secret passage.


Castle, Downstairs Secret Staircase
-----------------------------------
=*= Peer through the chink in the wall to eavesdrop on a conversation amongst
    the guards. They'll be able to clue you in on half of the password to that
    locked door in the western hallway. Alex will have to do some more prying 
    to get the other half.

Go up the stairs. 


Castle, Upstairs Secret Staircase
---------------------------------
As you reach the top of the staircase, you'll be met with the sounds of a woman
crying. This could be none other than Cassima. Take a look through that hole in
the wall. Seeing the princess inside, Alexander will call out to her. After 
their lengthy conversation, stick your only means of defense, the dagger given
to you by Lady Celeste, through the wall. The young lovers will gaze at each 
other for a bit, then someone will arrive to haul away Cassima. Step away from
the wall, and head down the hallway on the left side of the screen.


Castle, Upstairs Secret Passageway
----------------------------------
Proceed down the first part of the hallway, and round the corner at the end of
it. Just beyond the bend is another spyhole. Look through to witness Alhazred
writing a letter to a dark wizard. Now Alexander knows the vizier's plans, but
his spoken words won't be enough for the guard dogs.

Continue down the secret passageway, and examine the crack at the end of the 
left wall. A doorway will spring open. Step out into Alhazred's bedroom.


Castle, Bedroom
---------------
This room has two important things in it. The first is tucked inside the ebony
box on the table by the fireplace. Open said box and look inside to learn the
second half of the password to the locked door in the basement. The second item
of interest is locked inside the chest at the foot of the bed. Use your 
skeleton key to open the trunk, and take a letter from the stack within. You 
now have tangible evidence for the doubting castle guard. Use the wardrobe to 
return to the secret passageway.


Castle, Upstairs Secret Passageway
----------------------------------
Backtrack along the passageway, and go back down the stairs. Return to the 
western basement hallway.


Castle, Downstairs Western Hallway
----------------------------------
=*= Approach the door in the western wall. There is no visible handle, but as
    you overheard, it's voice-activated, so naturally, there wouldn't be. Speak
    to the door. Input Ali Zebu, the secret password, to spring the lock.
    Enter.


Castle, Royal Treasury
----------------------
=*= Pull away the cloth on the table to reveal the stolen treasures of each of
    the islands. Examine each item individually, then leave the room. 


Castle, Downstairs Western Hallway
----------------------------------
As is made apparent by the music playing upstairs, the wedding has begun. Run
to the stairs in the eastern hallway and go up to the foyer.


Castle, Foyer
-------------
After checking for guard dogs, Alexander will look through the crack between
the two large doors. Unfortunately, Captain Saladin will spot him, and step out
to confront him. Quickly show him the letter you stole from Alhazred to save 
your own neck. You'll be taken into the throne room to watch the wedding. 


Castle, Throne Room
-------------------
It seems you were wrong about Cassima... or were you? Speak to her to halt the
ceremony. As you get closer, the glinting eyes should give away the bride's 
true identity. Fortunately for you, the king and queen will make a well-timed
entrance. Ignore Shamir for now, and chase Alhazred out of the room.


Castle, Tower
-------------
Follow the vizier up the spiral stairs to reach the top of the tower. When you
reach the top, he'll summon his genie, who will begin conjuring a spell that 
could ultimately lead to Alexander's demise. It's best not to let it come to
that. Jollo will come up the stairs in a moment with the lamp, so things are
beginning to look up.

You now have two options. You could offer Shamir the mint, doing away with him
once and for all, or you could show him his lamp, stealing him away from his
wicked master. The second choice leads to a more cheerful ending, and is worth
more points. 

With the genie out of the way, it's time to face Alhazred, man-to-man. He'll
draw his sword. You gave your only weapon to Cassima, who is struggling in the
corner. Ignore her for now, and take the ornamental sword behind you. Begin the
fight. When he gains the upper hand, Alexander will conk the vizier on the head
with his sword. And so it ends.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q1. I'm here. Now what?
-----------------------
  Look around. Explore. That sort of thing. Why not try to visit Cassima?


Q2. How do I convince people that I'm really Alexander?
-------------------------------------------------------
  You'll need some form of identification. Proof of your royal heritage should
  do it. Got any? If not, try sifting through the sand on the beach.


Q3. How do I get back into the castle?
--------------------------------------
  You don't. Not yet, anyway.


Q4. How do I talk to the servant girl?
--------------------------------------
  She's too shy to talk to strangers. She's too far away to hear you right now,
  anyway.


Q5. Why can't I swim like that kid?
-----------------------------------
  That "kid" is only trying to trick you into a deathtrap. You'll be seeing him
  in all sorts of disguises throughout the course of the game. 


Q6. Who's that funny-looking guy in the bookstore?
--------------------------------------------------
  I don't know. Try talking to him. You'll have to prove how important you are 
  before he's willing to spill his guts to you, though.


Q7. What's with the nightingale at the crossroads?
--------------------------------------------------
  It's a messenger. You don't NEED to send any messages if you don't want to.


Q8. Where should I start?
-------------------------
  At the beginning. Duh. On a more serious note, just explore the islands until 
  you can't get seem to get anywhere, then tackle some of the puzzles.


Q9. How do I get past the guardians on the Isle of Wonder?
----------------------------------------------------------
  Use your dazzling wit and intuition. And maybe some of the junk you've been 
  toting around.


Q10. How do I get a rare book?
------------------------------
  Well, you can't just TAKE one. They already belong to somebody. You might be
  able to trade for one, if you've got anything that Bookworm is looking for. 


Q11. How do I convince the Dangling Participle to join me?
----------------------------------------------------------
  Maybe he'll ride along if he likes you. Maybe he'll like you if you show him
  something he loves. For the record, he loves incomplete sentences.


Q12. How do I catch the hole-in-the-wall?
-----------------------------------------
  You need to get past its cover. Try distracting the wallflowers with some 
  music.


Q13. How do I get to the swamp ooze?
------------------------------------
  You don't. The swamp ooze gets to you. Stick-in-the-mud isn't sharing, but 
  he's been known to throw it at his enemies. Unfortunately, you haven't done
  anything severe enough to make him loathe you. You'll have to join forces 
  with someone he already hates.


Q14. I lost my manual! Can you just tell me which symbols to enter?
-------------------------------------------------------------------
  No.


Q15. I keep getting lost in the Catacombs. Any advice?
------------------------------------------------------
  Track your progress with a handy-dandy map. Graph paper is useful for such 
  things, but you can do without it. Save frequently, and make sure you have
  all required items before entering.


Q16. I forgot to get the scythe from the Isle of the Mists. Can I go back?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Nope. You just lost yourself the game. Start over, or restore if you were
  clever enough to save before stepping into the Druids' trap.


Q17. Where am I going to find a single, desperate girl?
-------------------------------------------------------
  How many females ARE there in the Land of the Green Isles? Not many, and 
  most are already spoken for. There is one, however. She lives on the Isle of
  the Crown, with a wicked stepmother...


Q18. Which lamp is a duplicate of Shamir's?
-------------------------------------------
  Weren't you paying attention? It's tall. It's blue. It's the second one from 
  the right.


Q19. What do I do to get back into the castle?
----------------------------------------------
  Dress up as a chick and shake your groove thang. Well, part of that, anyway.


Q20. How do I avoid getting caught by the guard dogs?
-----------------------------------------------------
  Don't make your move until their backs are turned, and get them out of the 
  hallway as soon as possible.


Q21. What do I do about the painting once I've taken it down?
-------------------------------------------------------------
  Put it back up again. You'll need the nail for something else first.


Q22. How do I stop the wedding?
-------------------------------
  Prove that the bride isn't really who she appears to be. Don't you have 
  anything that reveals the truth in all things?


Q23. What do I do about the fire under the cage?
------------------------------------------------
  Well, it IS a rain ceremony...


Q24. How do I get to the Realm of the Dead?
-------------------------------------------
  Ride there. Only one horse in the entire world knows the way.


Q25. How can I get across the River Styx?
-----------------------------------------
  Take the ferry. Hopefully, you picked up the necessary fare while you were in
  the Catacombs.


Q26. What's the answer to Gate's riddle?
----------------------------------------
  Is it really that hard? You've probably already seen the answer, if you 
  picked the scrap of paper out of Black Widow's web. If you weren't paying
  attention, the answer is "love."


Q27. How do I make Death cry?
-----------------------------
  Show him what's inside that blackened heart. Reveal the truth.


Q28. What do I do to get back into the castle?
----------------------------------------------
  Not getting through the doors already there? Make your own.


Q29. What should I do now that I'm inside the castle?
-----------------------------------------------------
  Well, you could start by finding Cassima...


Q30. What's with that locked door, anyway?
------------------------------------------
  You'll have to do some spying to know. Once you obtain the password, speak 
  the password to unlock the door.


Q31. What is there to do in the secret passageway?
--------------------------------------------------
  Conversations to eavesdrop on, damsels in distress to talk to, murderous
  plans to uncover...


Q32. How do I stop the wedding?
-------------------------------
  Call out to the bride. That's all you have to do.


Q33. How do I prove my innocence and Alhazred's guilt to Saladin?
-----------------------------------------------------------------
  Show him written proof of the vizier's treachery. He's got it in his room.


Q34. How do I deal with the genie?
----------------------------------
  What's his major weakness? Who's controlling him? You'll either have to kill
  him, or claim him as your own.


Q35. What can I do about a weapon?
----------------------------------
  Well, that sword hanging on the wall behind you looks rather promising...

               -------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================

Alice in Wonderland
-------------------
The game contains numerous Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass 
references, including living chess pieces, "Drink Me" potions, and the like.
Most of these are found on the Isle of Wonder. Coincidence? I think not!


Beauty and the Beast
--------------------
There's an entire section of your quest devoted to bringing these two 
fictional lovers together, but Beauty's backstory is inconsistent with the tale
most of us are familiar with. On a slightly more amusing note, Robbie Benson, 
who provides the voice for Alexander, also did the voice of Beast in the Disney
movie "Beauty and the Beast."


Cinderella
----------
Although her name is Beauty, the servant character strongly resembles 
Cinderella, from the fairy tale of the same name.


Girl in the Tower
-----------------
On some CDs, the voice version of Girl in the Tower is included. To find out if
yours has the song, insert your CD into a regular CD player, and check the 
second track. 


King's Quest References
-----------------------
The items on the shelves in the Pawn Shop are mostly the sort of things that 
would've been extremely handy in previous quests. The letters sent and received
by Alhazred mention events that occurred in other games in the series, but it
IS a series, so that's to be expected. 


NOTE: There are a few easter eggs that I know of but have yet to confirm. When
      get off my lazy butt and check, I'll add them. Keep an eye out for them!

                       If you would have me go or stay.

                              Girl in the tower, 
                               I'm calling out,
                          My heart cries out for you.

                                    FEMALE
                               I saw your face,
                         And I felt our souls embrace,

                                     BOTH
                       If it's not meant to be this way,
                      Why do you haunt me night and day?

                                   CHORUS 2:
                              Girl in the tower,
                               I'm reaching out,
                          Please tell me what to do.
                              Here in the tower, 
                               I'm calling out,
                          My heart cries out for you.

                                     MALE
                             Girl in the tower...

                                    FEMALE
                        I'm calling out, calling out...

                                 CHORUS 2 (x2)

                                     BOTH
                             Girl in the tower...
                             Here in the tower...

Well, it's finished... Not much else to say... I guess there's always the

---------------
A single grammatical error, a couple new secrets... And... uh... That's it, 
really.
