1. Introduction

Okay, I'll admit it.  I love Quest for Glory.  I'm absolutely crazy 
about the series.  The greatest thing about the series is the well-done 
connection between RPG and the classic Sierra graphic adventure.  Unlike 
most other of Sierra's adventures, the Quest for Glory series has more 
non-linear elements.  The combat, the spells, the loot, and the silly 
puns and jokes all make for a great adventure.

In this, the first out of five in the series, our nameless hero (well, 
you name him) enters the Valley of Spielburg to prove himself.  This is 
by far the simplest of the five games, but there are still some 
head-scratchers for puzzles.

Note: This FAQ is for the VGA version.  If you have any questions about 
the EGA version, look on GameFAQs.  My EGA FAQ is under a separate 
game heading.

***********************************************************************

2. The Story So Far 

Since this is the first game in the series, there's not much backstory.  
Our hero, who's at this point just a mere adventurer, leaves his home 
town of Willowsby to prove himself as a bonafide hero.  He notices, in 
his home Adventurer's Guild, a notice for a Hero wanted in Spielburg 
Valley.  What looked particularly good to him was the "No Experience 
Necessary" tag added.  With that, he set off for Spielburg, and certain 
adventure.

***********************************************************************

3. Getting Started

---

A. The Classes

Once you start a new game, you'll have the choice of picking one of the 
game's three classes.  Any class can easily complete the game, of 
course, but some have harder times at survival than others...

The Fighter

Swinger of Swords, Basher of Barriers, Head of Thickness, the Fighter is 
by far the simplest and most straightforward character.  He solves his 
problems with the edge of his blade and can handle almost any monster 
that crosses his path, with a little practice.

Starting Stats:

Strength: 25
Intelligence: 10
Agility: 15
Vitality: 15
Luck: 10
Weapon Use: 20
Parry: 15
Dodge: 10
Throwing: 10

The Magic User

While not the strongest of the characters, there is much that is capable 
by the Magic User.  He can weave spells that can do things the other 
classes couldn't even hope to do with only the power of his mind.  
Choose the Magic User if you like to dabble in the arcane.

Starting Stats:

Strength: 10
Intelligence: 25
Agility: 15
Vitality: 15
Luck: 10
Weapon Use: 10
Dodge: 15
Magic: 25

The Thief

My favorite class, the Thief always has to be the most ingenious of the 
classes.  While the Fighter can just muscle his way through things, and 
the Magic User can utilize any of the spells at his command, the Thief 
is required to improvise.  And, of course, there's always the 
opportunity to add to one's wallet.

As a Thief, you should know about the basic tools of survival.  The 
best help you can get is from your fellow Thieves.  Of course, no one 
goes about asking where Thieves are, so a simple method of contact was 
developed: The Thief Sign.  Simply click your Lockpick on a person 
whenever you suspect they're a Thief and they'll respond in kind, and 
may offer you some aid, or at least directions to the nearest Thieves' 
Guild...

Starting Stats:

Strength: 10
Intelligence: 15
Agility: 25
Vitality: 10
Luck: 10
Weapon Use: 10
Dodge: 5
Stealth: 10
Lockpicking: 10
Throwing: 5
Climbing: 5

Once you select your class, you'll have the opportunity to name him, and 
adjust his base statistics.  You have a pool of 50 points, which you 
can distribute to your skills in five-point increments.

If you want to add five points to a skill that your class doesn't 
normally have, you can do so, but you'll have to spend fifteen points 
for the first five.  In this manner, you can give yourself three skills 
that you could not normally have.

Speaking of creating hybrids, I personally don't like it, for every 
class can reach 500 Puzzle Points, and if you want to do particular 
acts, just use that class.  Of course, if you like being able to cast 
spells while sneaking around the Thieves Guild, go right ahead...

---

B. Character Statistics

Any time you press click on the swirly bar at the top of the screen, and 
then on your character's portrait in the sub-menu, you'll bring up your 
Character Screen, where you can observe how your stats change.  Here are 
all the stats and how to increase them.  Every stat maxes out at 100.

Attributes (Basic Stuff) -

Strength: Your physical prowess, Strength determines how hard you can 
hit, how well you can muscle your way through things, and how much you 
can carry.  Strength is the most useful for the Fighter, since he 
spends most of his time using his muscles.  Strength also determines 
how many Health Points you have.  

- You can increase Strength through physical exercise and through combat 
(particularly by striking).

Intelligence: How smart youse is.  Intelligence is most useful for 
Wizards.  Not only does it determine how effective spells are, but also 
factors directly to Mana Points.

- You can increase Intelligence by casting spells, learning things, 
solving puzzles, or making good moves in combat (i.e. successfully 
dodging an attack and counterstriking)

Agility: This is a measure of how well you can move.  A good Agility 
means you can duck, dodge, and hide better.  Thieves need top-notch 
Agility to perform their myriad skills.  Agility also factors towards 
Stamina Points

- You can increase Agility by performing some of the Thief skills 
(Climbing, Lockpicking, Stealth), or through combat (particularly 
Dodging).

Vitality: Although most useful for Fighters, Vitality is good for 
everyone to have.  This measures your ability to take damage well.  
Vitality factors directly to your Health Points and Stealth Points as 
well.

- You can increase Vitality through most any physical action, 
particularly by taking damage in combat.

Luck: A very mysterious skill, Luck factors into a lot of things, and 
is most useful to the Thief.  How does Luck factor into things?  I 
really don't know, exactly...

- Increasing Luck is not very well understood.  In this game, Luck 
seems to go up with most any action you perform, so just keep fighting 
or performing skills and Luck should increase enough.

Skills (Specific Stuff) -

Weapon Use: Everyone has this skill, since everyone has a weapon.  This 
is the skill of sticking your pointy object into the other guy.  A high 
Weapon Use factors towards damage caused and successful strikes.

- Increase Weapon Use by attacking in combat.

Parry: Only Fighters have a true need for this skill, since stopping 
enemy attacks is much easier with a sword or shield than it is with a 
dagger.  A higher Parry skill indicates a better chance at taking less 
damage while parrying a weapon.

- Increase Parry by blocking or parrying in combat (more so if you're 
successful).

Dodge: Everyone has Dodge.  No, this is not your skill at driving a 
Durango.  One can't take hits forever, and a good Dodge skill ensures 
that you'll be able to avoid blows more successfully.

- Increase Dodge by dodging in combat (more so if you're successful).

Stealth: An essential Thief Skill.  No people want their houses robbed 
by someone who bangs around like a drunk Antwerp.  Having Stealth 
activates the "Sneak" ability, which makes you much less noticable to 
baddies or the occasional law officer.

- Increase Stealth by having Sneak active.  Just Sneak everywhere and 
you'll max it out eventually...

Lockpicking (aka Pick Locks, I hate grammatical errors): To get into 
realms of fabulous cash and prizes, you'll need to open door number 1, 
and your Thief's lock pick helps, but you need the skill to use it.

- Increase Lockpicking by picking on doors.  The best place to do this 
is the Healer's house, because her door is barred (so you can't 
actually enter), you won't get in trouble for it, and you can do it in 
the daytime.  You can only get so high picking that door, though, so 
to top it off, you'll have to pick your nose.  Don't ask...

Throwing: Useful for both Fighters and Thieves, a good Throwing skill 
can peg a monster with a few extra rocks or daggers before they get 
close enough to fight up close.  Throwing can also be used to hit or 
knock off things that are far off.

- Increasing Throwing can come from throwing rocks or daggers.  Rocks, 
naturally, are much more economic, considering the fact that you can 
pick up a whole bunch then throw them all repeatedly.

Climbing: Another Thief Skill, you'll need it for scaling walls, trees, 
gates, ropes, and other non-ladder surfaces.

- Increase Climbing by, naturally, climbing.  Early on, you can practice 
on the tree outside the Healer's house, but a better place is the town 
gate, but you still can't max it out, and I don't know of any place you 
can max it...

Magic: The Magic User's skill at manipulating reality.  Not much else 
to say about this, generally.  More will be said in the Spells section 
about each individual spell's effectiveness.

- Increase Magic by casting, casting, and casting some more...

General Health Points -

Health Points: If you hit 0, you die.  Pretty simple.  The maximum 
amount of Health you have is determined by adding two-thirds of your 
Vitality to one-third of your Strength.  So, if you have a Strength of 
30 and a Vitality of 60, your Health Point max is 50.

Stamina Points: This is your measure of stamina for performing strenuous 
acts, such as fighting, casting spells, running, throwing, climbing, 
etc.  Your max Stamina is determined by adding one-half of your Agility 
to one-half of your Vitality.

Mana Points: Mana is your measure of magical energy.  Each spell uses a 
certain amount of mana.  Your max Mana is determined by adding two-
thirds of your Magic Skill to one-third of your Intelligence.  
Naturally, if your Magic Skill is zero, your Mana Points will also be 
zero, no matter how high your Intelligence.

Scores -

Puzzle Points: Much like most other Sierra games, you get points for 
doing special acts.  The max is 500, and every class has its own 
special way of reaching that high.  In the Miscellany section, there's 
a Point List.

Experience: This is much like a basic score.  Talk to someone, buy 
something, kill something, and you'll get some experience.  It's not 
really worth anything, but once you hit 1000, you'll get tougher 
monsters during the daytime.

C. Magic Spells

While so many games give you a billion offensive spells to eviscerate 
your enemies, Quest for Glory take a different approach.  Sure, the 
magic users of other games can lay waste to any bad guy, but what 
happens if they misplace their keys, or if they need to reach the book 
at the top of the shelf?  This is why Quest for Glory makes the Magic 
User skilled in a bunch of all-around magic.

Each spell can be built up to 100 in skill by casting it repeatedly.

Leyden's Latent 'Lectrical Discharge, aka "Zap"

MP: 3
Found: You start the game with it.
Description: Casting Zap will charge your weapon with magical energy.  
The next strike will release the energy.  It can only be cast once at a 
time.  Increasing your skill will increase the damage done with the 
charged weapon.

"Open"

MP: 2
Found: Zara's shop for 30 silvers.
Description: Open is useful for unlocking simple locks.  With practice, 
doors can be opened.  Open can also be used for magical items that have 
been set to react to an Open spell.

Lowenhard's Lariat of Legerdemain, aka "Fetch"

MP: 5
Found: Zara's shop for 40 silvers.
Description: Fetch is useful for grabbing objects that are distant.  It 
can mostly be used on small, non-living objects.  With practice, you 
can use it to move objects from one place to another.

"Flame Dart"

MP: 5
Found: Zara's shop for 60 silvers.
Description: Your only attack spell in the game, the Flame Dart produces 
a small ball of magical flame which you can direct at an opponent, 
either in combat or while still at a distance.  It can also be used, 
get this, to burn things.  As you increase in skill, your Flame Darts 
will do more damage.

"Detect Magic"

MP: 2
Found: Meep's Peep.  Ask the Green Meep about magic.
Description: This is a very general spell, and is used to detect any 
existing magical auras in the immediate area.

R. Rogers' Reactivating Ritual, aka "Trigger"

MP: 3 
Found: Henry the Hermit's cave.  Ask about magic.
Description: This lovely little spell can be used to set off any 
magical spells in the immediate area.  It can make invisble things 
visible, activate teleport spells, or set off magical traps while the 
caster is still at a safe distance.  Pretty handy.

"Calm"

MP: 4
Found: Erana's Peace, under the rock.
Description: Since most Magic Users like to avoid direct combat, you 
can use this spell to immediately cause any threatening monster to 
cease its hostile intent and contemplate the universe and its 
bellybutton.  This works on most enemies with a pulse.  Don't try it on 
the Undead, and do NOT use it once in actual combat, because a calmed 
monster is far more dangerous than one blinded by rage.  Having more 
skill in this spell will cause monsters to be delayed for longer.

Erasmus' Razzle Dazzle, aka "Dazzle"

MP: 3
Found: Erasmus' House.  Beat him in Mage's Maze.
Description: Dazzle creates a brilliant flash of light that will stun 
anything for a small time while it pauses to rub its eyes.  This only 
works, naturally, if the creature HAS eyes.  Having more skill in this 
spell will cause monsters to be delayed for longer.  Although it doesn't 
last as long as Calm, this skill CAN be used in combat.

Basic Survival

Let's start with SAVE OFTEN!!!

You are a human, and as such, you'll need to eat, sleep, and keep from 
getting hurt too much.  

If you have food rations, you'll eat automatically, and you can eat 
fruits and vegetables from the Market to sate your appetite.  You can 
also get full meals at the Inn, for a price, and there's a tree at 
Erana's Peace that bears fruit that will keep you going the whole day.

Sleeping is another concern.  If you do not sleep for a couple of days, 
your stamina will drop much quicker.  It's generally advisable to sleep 
every day, and to get a full night's rest, you need to sleep before 
midnight.  Of course, you can't sleep just anywhere.

Learn the time scale of the game.  Although you have no clock or 
anything, you'll go by the sun.  There are eight "times" in the game.

Day is Dawning: Town opens for the day.  Day monsters appear.  Ghosts 
  disappear from Graveyard.
Mid-morning
Midday
Mid-afternoon
Sunset Approaches: You can sleep.  Sheriff goes home and Abdulla shows 
  up at the Inn.
Night is still young: Shops close up.  Gate to town closes.  Ghosts 
  frolic in the graveyard.  Night monsters show up.
Middle of the Night: Can no longer get a full night's sleep.  Inn 
  closes for the night.
Not yet Dawn

The best place to sleep is Erana's Peace.  Even if you don't get a full 
night's rest, you'll wake up completely restored.

Other decent places to sleep are the Inn, the Castle Stables, the 
Dryad's Tree, and Henry the Hermit's cave.  Except for the Dryad's Tree, 
you'll have to pay in some way for these places.  It's five silvers a 
night for a room at the Inn, one of your rations (and a few games of 
cribbage) in the Hermit's cave, and a rude awakening (and morning's 
work) for the Stable.  None of these places restore you fully.

If you're absolutely desperate for sleep, you can curl up on the streets 
of the town.  Just don't expect your wallet to be there when you 
awaken.

Any other place you sleep in is unsafe and will result in your death.

You can also rest whenever you want by clicking on the appropriate panel 
in the Special menu.  But, you'll be too impatient to rest after a bit.  
Resting will restore several stamina and a few health and mana.

Staying alive in a combat sense is pivotal, of course.  Potions to 
restore any of your three Health Meters can be purchased either at 
Zara's Magic Shop or at the Healer's Hut.  You'll want to buy from the 
Healer's Hut, because it's cheaper.

Surviving Combat

Friendly piece of advice: Don't drop (or throw) your weapon.  You're not 
nearly skilled enough to fight unarmed, and you'll be promptly 
pummeled.

Generally, you'll be set upon by a monster in one of the forested areas 
in the valley.  It'll be running towards you and you can let it get close 
and attack you.  If you want, you can throw rocks or daggers, or cast 
spells such as Zap, Flame Dart, Calm, or Dazzle.  You can also just run.

When engaged in combat, a little menu will appear in the lower-right corner 
of the screen.  Fighters, Magic Users, and Thieves have different menus, but 
they're all basically the same.  Press the buttons on the menu to perform 
actions.

Fighter:
Top Left: Thrust with sword
Top Right: Swing with sword
Bottom Left: Block with shield
Bottom Right: Dodge to the side
Middle: Run away from combat

Magic User/Thief:

Technically, they have the same menus, but Magic Users can utilize more of 
the buttoms on the menus.

Menu 1:
Top Left: Stab with dagger
Top Right: Swing with dagger
Bottom Left: Dodge to the left
Bottom Right: Dodge to the right
Middle: Switch to Menu 2

Menu 2:
Top Left: Cast Zap
Top Right: Cast Flame Dart
Bottom Left: Cast Dazzle
Bottom Right: Run away from combat
Middle: Switch to Menu 1

After combat, you should always search the body by clicking the Hand on 
your fallen foe.  Several monsters carry money.

Surviving Financially

The currency of Spielburg is the gold and silver coin, with 10 silvers 
in exchange for one gold.  You start your adventure with 4 gold and 
10 silver.  Opportunities for more cash will arise in your adventure:

Working in the Castle: Every day, the manure in the stable piles up.  
They need someone to clean up.  That's where you, the poor sap, come 
in.  Every time you clean the stables, you pick up five silvers.

Killing Monsters: Most humanoid-type monsters carry money.  Search them 
after you kill them.

Components for the Healer: Finding components for the Healer will earn 
you money as well:

Empty Flasks: 2 silvers
Flowers from Erana's Peace: 5 silvers
Magic Mushrooms: 1 gold
Cheetaur Claws: 5 silvers each
Troll Beard: Two Healing Potions (which is as good as 80 silvers, since 
   you probably were gonna spend it on healing anyway)

Non-renewable Resources:

Finding Treasure: Although not occuring very often, certain caves 
contain treasure that could be very useful to the adventurer on the go.

Thieving: Not only do houses in the area have money, but they also have 
goods that can be fenced at the local Thieves Guild...

Completing Quests: You only get a couple of Quest Completion rewards 
in-game, but they're actually pretty good rewards.

4. Spielburg Valley - *CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS*

A. Map and Points of Interest

While not terribly big, Spielburg has a lovely charm to it.  Nestled in 
a ring of mountains, the land is home to many a creature, both fair and 
foul, and there are quite a few special locations.  Since this is based 
on ye olde 16-color game, every place is divided into screens.  Here's 
the big main map:

Key: "-, |" = Screen Edge (passable)
     "=, ‡" = Screen Edge (impassable)
     Letters = Special Location without Random Monsters
     "*" = Location has more than one screen
     "/" = Log.  Only a landmark.  Can still be attacked.
     "+" = White Stag location.  Cannot be attacked.

Points of Interest:

"ST" - Town of Spielburg:

Much like the valley, the town is rather small.  The town was formed 
first and the castle was built a long time ago by the residents of the 
town.  The isolation of the valley meant that the population of the town 
never got very big.  One of the town's major charms is that it's 
completely safe from the inside.  The Archmage Erana cast a greatly 
amplified spell of Calm many years ago, which still exists today.  No 
magic may be cast in the walls, and there can be no aggression towards 
another, which keeps the town safe from brigand attack.

There are four street screens:

Corner of Main Street and Market Street:

- Sheriff's Office: No one's actually sure if the door even opens.  The 
  Sheriff and his assistant Otto always hang out on the porch.

- Hero's Tale Inn: Run by two Kattas, Shameen and Shema, the Inn is a 
  welcome respite from an adventurer's long day.  Rooms are available 
  for five silvers a night, and food and drink is available at three and 
  one silvers, respectively.

- Barber's Shop: The barber's been out to lunch for some time...

End of Main Street:

- Magic Shop: A enygmatic being named Zara runs the Magic Shop.  She 
  sells items of magic to any who are skilled in the art.  She also 
  sells potions.

  Prices:
  Open Spell: 30 silvers
  Fetch Spell: 40 silvers
  Flame Dart Spell: 60 silvers
  Healing Potion: 50 silvers
  Vigor Potion: 25 silvers
  Mana Potion: 75 silvers

- Little Old Lady's House: A private (and very tempting) residence...

- Adventurer's Guild Hall: A home away from home for adventurers, the 
  Guild is a place to relax and talk about stories.  Since there aren't 
  many adventurers in Spielburg, there's only the Guildmaster, Wolfgang, 
  to talk to.  There is a Quest Board and a logbook here as well.

Corner of Market Street and Tavern Street:

- Farmer's Mart: A small fruit and veggie stand, run by Hilde the 
  Centaur.

  Prices:
  Vegetables: 5 for 1 silver
  Apples: 10 for 1 silver

- Dry Goods Store: Run by Kaspar, this shop contains some staples for 
  adventurers:

  Prices:
  Flask: 2 silvers
  Food Rations: 5 for 5 silvers
  Dagger: 25 silvers
  Chainmail Armor: 500 silvers

- Sheriff's Home: The sheriff's private (and also very tempting) 
  residence...

End of Tavern Street:

- Bakery: The Baker's been gone fishing with the Butcher for some time.

- Butchery: See Bakery

- Alley: Very dark, and colder than the rest of town.  Sam the Beggar 
  hangs out here by day.  More unsavory characters hang out here at 
  night.

- The Aces and Eights Tavern: A place for when one wants some hearty 
  ale.  The folks aren't all that nice, but the drinks are terrible.  
  There is some use for this place, though, if one is of a dishonest 
  nature.

  Prices:
  Ale: 1 silver
  Troll's Sweat: 5 silvers
  Dragon's Breath: 20 silvers

  That, by the way, is all merely a formality.  Dragon's Breath will 
  kill you.  Troll's Sweat will cause you to pass out immediately, and 
  three ales will do the same.  If you pass out, you'll wake up outside 
  with five lost Puzzle Points and an empty wallet.

- Workshop: Apparently the programmers never wrote this in.  No, you 
  can't open the door under any circumstances...

- Thieves' Guild: It's in this area somewhere; a place where the 
  thieves in the area can relax without worrying about being thrown in 
  the slammer.  You can fence your stolen goods, or play a little Dag-
  Nab-It to get some extra cash if you're skilled.  There's also a 
  modest set up for fencing and a shop for Thief items:

  License: 25 silvers
  Lock Pick: 15 silvers
  Tool Kit: 100 silvers

---

"E" - Entrance to Town

Sometimes an unsavory-looking character will be outside the gate.  This 
is Bruno, the seller of information.  He may be willing to help, for a 
price.  Just take his advice with a grain of salt...

Prices:

1 silver - Directions to Goblins, Baba Yaga, or the Castle
1 gold - Thieves' Guild (Lie)
2 gold - More info about Baba Yaga (Useful, but obtainable elsewhere)
10 gold - Brigand Fortress (Misleading)

"R" - Road to Mountain Pass

Nothing much going on here except for the fact that you can't be 
attacked here.  You may spot a trapped animal on one of the screens...

"HH" - Healer's Hut

The Healer resides here.  She can sell you several different potions, 
and can help you make some of the more complicated ones.  You can also 
sell components to her:

Prices:
Healing Potion: 40 silver
Vigor Potion: 20 silver
Magic Power Potion: 60 silver
Undead Unguent: 100 silver

Outside, you'll see a nest with a small Pterosaur in it.  Why did I 
mention it?  Oh, no reason...

"F" - Farm

This is the farm of Heinrich the Centaur.  Not much you can do here but 
talk to him.

"CG" - Castle Gates

You can speak to Karl, the gate guard, about may of the things going on, 
or you could just ask him to let you in.

"SC" - Spielburg Castle

Built a long time ago, Spielburg Castle is an impressive sight, 
but is a bit small as far as castles go.  There is just a main wall and 
a keep.  The Barony of Spielburg inherited the castle from King 
Siegfried the Third two centuries ago.  Baron Stefan von Spielburg 
lives here, and, at the moment, he lives alone with his sadness (and a 
few guards).

- Courtyard: Sometimes, one can find the Weapon Master here, practicing.  
  He'll give lessons to aspiring Fighters for one gold a lesson.

- Stables: East of the Courtyard, you'll find the stables.  The Stable 
  Hand is more than willing to let you work in the stables cleaning up 
  the place.  He'll pay you five silvers for each time you clean it out.

- Barracks: West of the Courtyard is the Barracks for the guards.  
  There's not much to do there except be told by the guard to leave...

- Keep: North of the Courtyard is the door to the Keep, which opens for 
  no one...

- Great Hall: Not very flashy, but if one does well, one may see the 
  place...

"AR" - Archery Range

A lonely little archery target sits on the town's south wall.  While you 
have no bow, it is a good place to practice throwing daggers...

"GY" - Graveyard

A neglected and run-down place, the Graveyard hasn't been tended to in 
years since Baba Yaga cursed it.  What was the curse?  Take a wild 
guess...

"SF" - Snow Field

This area contains a pass through the mountains, but it's very 
treacherous for all but the most skilled, or giant-like, of mountain 
climbers...

"FF" - Flying Falls

The magnificent Flying Falls are a wonder to behold.  On one of the 
walls of the cliffside is a door that must lead to someone's residence, 
but it's atop a ledge that's several feet up.  It's rumored that a 
Hermit lives there.

"SS" - Spiegelsee

Also called Mirror Lake, you can pause here for some peaceful 
reflection, and maybe see a sight gag or two, but that's it.

"MZ" - Mount Zauberburg

Magic Mountain is the home to a powerful, yet humorful, Wizard named 
Erasmus and his familiar Fenrus.

"EH" - Erasmus' House

After a tough climb up Mount Zauberburg, one must match wits with the 
Gargoyle watching the gate.  Answering three questions correctly will 
allow you to see the Wizard.

"C" - Cave

Few people know what's inside the cave in this northeastern corner of 
the valley.  They probably haven't the guts to go in given the huge Ogre 
standing in front of it...

"EP" - Erana's Peace

Rumored to be the final resting place of the Archmage Erana, this is a 
very safe meadow.  There are many flowers of different varieties, a tree 
that bears fruit that can satisfy the most ravenous of hungers, and a 
gift for those knowledgeable in magic...

"SSS" - Spore Spitting Spirea

On a rocky ledge rest four very rare plants.  These plants spit some odd 
sort of seed around.  Just thought I'd let you know...

"BYH" - Baba Yaga's Hut

As you'll see, it's not an easy place to get into.  The skull guarding 
the gate will make you bargain with him, and even if you can get inside 
the hut, you may find out you didn't want to...

"GCT" - Goblin Central Combat Training Zone

If ever you needed an endless supply of Goblins, this would be the 
place to find them.  Every time you fight here, the number of Goblins 
that attack you increase by one.  You can get some good money from them.

"MP" - Meep's Peep

Fuzzy Meeps live in the holes here.  They have a generally positive 
outlook on life, but they're rather shy.  Only the rare Green Meeps have 
any capacity for conversation.

"MR" - Mushroom Ring

A circle of mushrooms is in this area.  You can give these mushrooms 
to the Healer, or you can visit at night for an interesting light show.

"DT" - Dryad Tree

In a small corner of the forest, the Dryad, the protector of the woods, 
sleeps.  She is known to ask favors of those she thinks are friends of 
the forest, and is willing to return those favors.

"AT" - Antwerp Area

This has to be seen to be believed.  There may be more to this place, 
however, than that big blue bouncy thing...

"BA" - Brigand Ambush

Their fortress must be nearby, because the brigands in the area have set 
up a very nasty ambush in this area, to fill any intruders with arrows.  
A strong hero could push through this ambush.  A smart hero may avoid 
it altogether...

"BF" - Brigand Fortress

Well, we assume it's there, since there's an ambush nearby...

---

B. Characters

Some are good, some are bad...  Some are more than what they seem...

The Hero (Ego) - (human male from Willowsby)

Fresh from basic training as your home Adventurer's Guild, you need a 
chance to prove that you've got the guts and the talent to change this 
world.  Much about your past is hidden, and doesn't really need to be 
revealed, since one needs to identify with his character, and the less 
known, the better.  You're a strapping, blonde-haired man in his late 
teens or early twenties.  You wear a blue shirt, violet trousers, and 
a brown belt and shoulder strap for carrying equipment.  For the added 
flair, you also sport a black cape.

Townsfolk:

Schultz von Meistersson, aka The Sheriff - (human male from Spielburg)

A former adventurer, Schultz decided to settle down after the day to 
day became too much hassle.  He married a local town girl, and was 
installed as Sheriff of Spielburg.  He prefers to do the thinking half 
of the job, leaving the rest to his able-bodied assistant, Otto.

Otto von Goon - (Goon male from Spielburg)

Goons aren't very bright, but they can be housebroken, much like pets.  
Otto's not a monster per se, but he's pretty darn strong.  He's the 
muscle half of the law enforcement team in Spielburg.

Sheriff's Wife - (human female from Spielburg)

She's mostly implied.  She looks after the house while the Sheriff's at 
work.

Shameen - (Katta male from Raseir)

Katta are a humanoid feline species.  Shameen, in the language of the 
Katta, means "He of the Lion".  He established the Inn a few years back 
in the interest of the tourist trade, but that dried up some time ago.  
Now he intends to head back to his homeland, but he's stranded in 
Spielburg, due to the attack on his friend Abdulla.

Shema - (Katta female from Raseir)

Shameen's wife and soulmate, her name means "She of the Dance".  She 
cleans and cooks at the Inn and serves meals.

Abdulla Doo - (human male from Shapeir)

A Master Merchant and trader, Abdulla traveled to Spielburg to sell his 
wares and pick up Shameen and Shema on his way back to Shapeir.  
Unfortunately, he was attacked a week before the Hero's arrival by the 
brigands in the valley.  His guards were overwhelmed and he was left 
penniless.  He's now living at the Inn, a burden on his friends.

Zara Shashina - (half-Faery Folk female from Western Woods)

A powerful magic user, Zara tends the Magic Shop in Spielburg.  She's 
very no-nonsense, and is quite blunt and to the point.

Damiano - (Familiar)

Zara's familiar, Damiano, has the appearance of a man-bat.  It doesn't 
speak at all.

Little Old Lady - (human female from Spielburg)

An old widow who lives on her own with her kitty.

Wolfgang Abenteuer, aka The Guildmaster - (human male from Spielburg)

Wolfgang runs the Adventurer's Guild because, frankly, someone needs 
to.  He's had his share of adventures, and is more than willing to 
speak about them to younger adventurers.

Hilde Pferdefedern - (Centaur female from Spielburg)

This young Centaur runs the Farmer's Mart in town.  She's rather shy, 
but she does a good job peddling the wares.

Kaspar - (human male from Spielburg)

but he runs a good store.

Silas Sourdough, aka The Baker - (human male from Spielburg)
Butch Beefmeister, aka The Butcher - (human male from Spielburg)
The Barber - (human male from Spielburg)

Since these gents have been cut off from supplies for a while with the 
winter, they have nothing better to do than hang out at the Tavern.

Sam the Beggar - (human male from Spielburg)

Poor Sam's hit the skids.  He's taken to begging on the streets.  Offer 
a silver to him, and he may give you some useful information.

Tavern Keeper - (human male from Spielburg)

This is the bar.  He serves drinks.  You want a drink?  Order one.  You 
want to know about the tavern keeper, you can forget it.

Crusher - (Goon male from Spielburg)

Crusher maintains his quiet dignity by guarding the entrance to the 
Thieves' Guild.  He's the Guild's personnel manager.

The Chief - (human male from parts unknown)

The Chief Thief's not happy with his position, but he'll have to live 
with cheifing a podunk town until the pass clears.  There's not much 
for him to do except to play Dag-Nab-It, which you can play with him.

Boris - (human male from Spielburg)

The Thieves' Guild's accountant, Boris provides thieves with their 
essential tools for survival in the world of purloining, as well as 
acting as a fence for valuable items.

Sneak and Slink - (human males from Spielburg)

These two thieves, seemingly joined at the hip, patrol the alley.  They 
set a trap for mugging anyone who wanders into the alley.  Being active 
thieves, they know all the latest passwords for getting into the Guild.

Just Outside of Town:

Bruno - (human male from Spielburg)

Bruno's a member in good standing in the Spielburg Thieves' Guild.  
Since there's not much work here, Bruno spends his time outside the 
main gate of town, selling information to those who'd buy.  He's a 
pretty dangerous fellow, however, and he's rumored to not be completely 
loyal to even the Thieves' Guild.

Amelia Appleberry, aka The Healer - (human female from Spielburg)

She's a pretty darn good healer for such a small area.  She lives in 
her hut just outside of town and sells her potions.  She has a pet 
pterosaur, Pterry, who has a mate, Pteresa, who lives in the tree 
outside her house.  She'll pay for components, and she recently lost a 
rather valuable ring.

Heinrich Pferdefedern - (Centaur male from Spielburg)

He tends his farm outside of town.  He makes a living selling the 
produce he harvests in town.  He's rumored to have been attacked by the 
brigands.

Castle Dwellers:

Karl - (human male from Spielburg)

The gate guard, Karl knows much about what goes on in the castle.  He'll 
open the gates for anyone who's not a monster.

Weapon Master - (human male from parts unknown)

A very skilled, but rather arrogant man, the Weapon Master taught all 
the guards how to fight.  He is extremely gifted with a sword, and will 
teach anyone else with a sword for a gold a lesson.

Stable Hand - (human male from Spielburg)

Not much of a conversationalist, but he'll give you work if you want it.

Frederick and Pierre - (human males from Spielburg)

They guard the castle keep, and that's about it.  Don't mention Pierre's 
bald spot...

Baron Stefan von Spielburg - (human male from Spielburg)

The 12th Baron of Spielburg Castle, the Baron has had many hardships.  
Ever since the loss of his son and daughter, he has shut himself in his 
castle and will see no one.

Baronet Barnard von Spielburg - (human male from Spielburg)

Five years ago, Barnard went off hunting.  Several days later, his horse 
returned with vicious claw marks.  No sign of the Baronet was ever 
found...

Elsa von Spielburg - (human female from Spielburg)

Ten years ago, soon after Baba Yaga cursed the Baron, Elsa was stolen 
away by some flying creature.  No one knows what became of her.

Yorick - (human male from Spielburg)

After some time, everyone gave up the search for Elsa, except for the 
court jester Yorick.  He was a man of infinite jest.  No one knows 
where he is now...

Other Folks in Spielburg:

Brauggi - (Frost Giant male from Jotunheim)

He's a hungry giant.  He's come far and wide to search for food to 
mellow his mead horn, and his search has brought him to the valley, 
specifically, the Snow Field.

Erasmus - (human male from parts unknown)

From his house atop Mount Zauberberg, Erasmus the Wizard keeps an eye 
on the happenings in the valley.  While he prefers not to meddle 
directly in affairs, he's more than willing to help others trained in 
the mystical arts, or even just offer passersby some useful 
information.  If you have the skill, he may even challenge you to a 
game of Mage's Maze.  Beware his wit, however, for it's sharper than 
any blade you carry.

Fenrus - (familiar)

Erasmus' familiar is Fenrus, a talking rat.  The two are constantly 
trading jokes and jabs back and forth, and have developed one of those 
special relationships that only exist between Wizards and Rat Familiars.

Henry the Hermit - (human (I suppose) male from Spielburg)

'e lives in 'is cave near Flying Falls.  'e'd be 'appy to share his 
knowledge of whatever with you, if you can reach 'is 'ome, sez I.  Just 
be careful you read 'is manner of speaking correctly...

Meeps - (Meep males and females from Spielburg)

The Meeps are happy Meeps living in their happy holes.  Don't worry, be 
happy! ^_^

Bonehead - (undead/enchanted)

Don't know exactly how undead Bonehead is.  Maybe he's just an enchanted 
talking skull (like Murray).  At any rate, he's posted on Baba Yaga's 
gate, and he won't let anyone in who doesn't deal with him.

Baba Yaga - (Ogre female from Surria)

Y'know, you just can't settle your flying chicken hut down anywhere 
these days without someone trying to get you to leave.  Several years 
ago, Baba Yaga left her homeland and journeyed to Spielburg.  When the 
Baron threatened her to leave, she cursed him, and he lost his son, 
daughter, and many of his guards.  She now lives cozily there, content 
that she'll be at relative peace...

Dryad

The Dryad is a tree nymph that watches over the forest.  She is a bit 
tempermental and to the point, but she does have a soft spot for 
magical balance in a land (which Spielburg needs in spades).

Brigand Warlock - (human male from parts unknown)

Not many people ever get a good look at the Warlock, but he's supposed 
to be a powerful magic user, with the ability to subdue enemies before 
the main force of the brigands sets upon them.

Brigand Leader - (???)

No one knows what the Leader looks like, because he goes everywhere with 
a full helm on.  He surfaced a few years back and changed the brigands 
from a petty nuisance to a major force to be reckoned with.  One will 
need to be particularly skilled to defeat him.

---

C. Monsters

The general definition of a monster is "that which attacks without 
asking questions first".  Every adventure's got 'em, and this one has 
quite a few.  The difficulty is rated out of 10, with one being a cake 
walk, and ten being something huge that'll kill you unless you're very 
skilled.

Random Monsters

These monsters can attack you in any wooded area.  They'll attack from 
either the left or the right side of the screen.  Humanoid monsters will 
chase you for a while, but the rest will give up as soon as you go 
up or down a screen (they don't have up or down sprites ^_^).

Goblin - A squat, ugly, blue-green humanoid.  They have little armor, 
but they wear a horned skull cap, carry a wooden shield, and wield a 
small mace to attack with.  They attack only with a simple swing.  
They're not all that hard to kill, but, in the GCT, they can gang up on 
you.  They carry anywhere between 1 and 10 silvers.  Difficulty: 2

Purple Saurus - These descendants of the ancient dinosaurs don't have 
much brain, but they have a nasty set of teeth, which they'll bite you 
with, repeatedly.  They only attack in the daytime.  Difficulty: 3

Brigand - The terror of Spielburg; these guys wear helms, leather armor, 
carry a round steel shield, and attack with a spear.  Their attack 
consists of stabbing.  Some brigands have different faces than others, 
but they're all the same.  You shouldn't take them on too early.  They 
carry between five and twenty-five silvers.  Difficulty: 5

Mantray - This is a rather magical creature.  It lives on the land and 
looks like a cross between a Sting Ray and a Manta Ray.  It hides on 
the ground waiting for its prey.  Then it flies up and attacks.  It 
uses its tail as a weapon, which has an electrical current running 
through it.  It only appears at night until you reach 1000 exp, when 
it'll appear at the daytime as well.  Difficulty: 5

Cheetaur - This guy is nasty with a capital NASTY!  Think of it as a 
centaur, only with the body of a panther instead of a horse, and the 
upper body is catlike, only shaped like a human.  Like the Mantray, it 
will only appear at night until you hit 1000 exp.  It attacks hard, and 
with both hands, so hits are very frequent.  After you beat one, take 
its claws.  It carries anywhere between 2 and 7 claws.  Difficulty: 9 

Saurus Rex - The Big Saurus!  Although not as nasty as a Cheetaur, they 
run faster than you, so outrunning them is tough.  A big set of chompers 
can make short work of you, and it can absorb hits.  They only appear at 
night until 1000 exp, much like the Mantray and Cheetaur.  The fact 
that they don't carry anything makes them not very pleasant targets.
Difficulty: 8

Troll - Probably one of the more resilient enemies you'll meet, Trolls 
have rock-hard gray skin and carry huge clubs.  They cause damage, but 
they don't attack as often as Cheetaurs.  They only come out at night, 
end of story on that one.  They carry between 25 and 50 silvers, and 
their beard is very useful for the Healer (worth two Healing Potions).  
Difficulty: 8

Unique Monsters

There are only one of each of these monsters, and they tie into the 
story for the most part.

Ogre - A nasty-looking fella, the Ogre has reddish skin and carries a 
massive club, along with a chest filled with his belongings.  He's 
pretty tough, but not all that bad, particularly if you rest up prior 
to fighting him.  His chest has 1 gold and 43 silver in it.
Difficulty: 7

Bear - Although not really a monster, this thing will attack you.  I 
suggest not attacking back.  Well, you could, but save first...
Difficulty: 7

Kobold - He's a powerful magic user, and he's not really very friendly.  
He's also the only bad dude you fight outside normal combat.  It's not 
necessary to fight him directly unless you are the Fighter, though.  He's 
not particularly tough in that sense, unless you're rather weakened.
Difficulty: 6

Minotaur - The mythical cross between a man and a bull, the Minotaur 
is the toughest monster in the game.  Only the Fighter needs to attack 
him.  The Minotaur attacks you with a flail, and he absorbs hits 
quite well.  His flail has 50 silvers in it.  Difficulty: 10

Other Hazardous Creatures

Antwerp - An odd creature from God Knows Where, this bouncy being 
inhabits a spot in the south.  Throwing and casting stuff at him doesn't 
work, and fighting him could produce nasty results.  It's best just to 
try and leave him alone.  If you DO fight him, he'll bounce very high 
up and out of sight.  He'll drop down on the next screen and squash 
you unless you click your sword or dagger on him.  He'll explode and 
you'll cause an Antwerp POPulation explosion...

Ghost - Phantasms composed of ectoplasm and weird stringy stuff.  They 
can suck the life right out of you if you're not protected with Undead 
Unguent.  Fortunately, they only hang out at the Graveyard at night.

Night Gaunt - Personally, I think these guys are fantasy.  They're 
supposed to be the "bump in the night" creatures that get you if you bed 
down in an unsafe place, but that really makes no sense.  Why have a 
special creature to eat you?  No, I believe they're just stories to 
frighten young children to sleep, and if you bed down in an unsafe spot, 
it's just a random monster that munches on you...

D. Items

Here's where I collected and compiled all the items that exist in the 
game and what they're used for.  Take care, for looking up some of these 
items can result in plenty bad spoilers...

Combat Carryables:

Broadsword
Found: Start Fighter Quest with one.
Description: Your right hand as a Fighter (assuming you're 
right-handed), the sword is your main weapon in this crazy battle 
called life.  It does generally more damage than a dagger.

Shield
Found: Start Fighter Quest with one.
Description: A big piece of metal that you can stick between you and 
a set of big nasty teeth, or thrusting pointy sticks.

Dagger
Found: Start Magic User or Thief Quest with one.  Purchase at Dry Goods 
for 20 silvers.
Description: A small knife.  It's useful for throwing, and can be used 
in close combat in a pinch.  Thieves should have a good supply of these.

Leather Armor
Found: Start any Quest with one.
Description: Your basic armor.  It's made from strips of leather boiled 
and hardened in wax.  It doesn't take much to pierce it, but it's 
better than going naked (and a lot less frightening).

Chainmail Armor
Found: Dry Goods for 500 silvers.
Description: Made from tiny rings of steel, it's heavier than leather, 
but not so heavy that it impairs movement too much.  You'll take less 
damage while wearing this.

Survival Staples:

Food Ration
Found: Start any Quest with five.  Purchase at Dry Goods at five for 
five silvers.
Description: Not too tasty, but the rations will keep you going 
throughout the day.

Vegetable
Found: Farmer's Mart at five for a silver.
Description: Vegetables left over from last year's harvest.  Not enough 
for a balanced diet, but other things besides you need to eat.

Apple
Found: Farmer's Mart at ten for a silver.
Description: Apples left over from last year's harvest.  Again, not 
enough nutrition to keep you alive, but they could be useful in other 
ways.

Potion of Healing
Found: Purchase in Healer's Hut for 40 silvers, or Magic Shop for 50.  
Also can be found in other places.

healing potions will restore about half of your Health Points.  When 
used, you'll be left with a flask.

Vigor Potion
Found: Purchase in Healer's Hut for 20 silvers, or Magic Shop for 25.

GNC Mega Vita Fuel, all in one little flask.  When used, you'll be left 
with a flask and completely restored Stamina Points.

Potion of Magic Power
Found: Purchase in Healer's Hut for 60 silvers, or Magic Shop for 75.
Description: Just brimming with electricity, these potions will restore 
about half your Mana Points.

Thief Thingies:

Lock Pick
Found: Begin Thief Quest with it, or purchase at Theives' Guild for 
15 silvers.
Description: While it seems to be no more than a thin shaft of metal, 
this is your ticket to realms of unimaginable treasures, with enough 
practice.

Thieves' Guild License
Found: Purchased in the Thieves' Guild for 25 silvers.
Description: Rather necessary for the Thieves' Guild not to tip off the 
fuzz about you.  It also allows you purchase supplies and fence your 
stolen items at the Guild.

Thieves' Tool Kit
Found: Purchased in the Thieves' Guild from 100 silvers.
Description: The short story is that it gives you a higher lockpicking 
success rate.  The long story is that this kit contains everything from 
skeleton keys, to thin pieces of wire, to credit cards.

Alabaster Vase
Found: In the Sheriff's House
Description: While rather fragile, this large vase can net you some 
cash.

Golden Candelabra
Found: In the Sheriff's House
Description: Let's see.  Could this be better used for candles, or as a 
dust collector in the Thieves' Guild's stash?

Silver Candlesticks

Description: One of Otto's favorite toys, but it's rather valuable.  
He'll live without it...

Description: They just don't suit you.  Better off selling them to the 
Guild.  The good news is, they're real...

Items for Ingredients:

Flowers
Found: Erana's Peace
Description: Some magic keeps them perpetually fresh.  Not bad, eh?  
Sell them to the Healer for five silvers per bunch.

Magic Mushrooms
Found: Mushroom Ring
Description: They're colored a rather hazy purple.  It's advisable not 
to eat them.  You can, however, sell them to the Healer for one gold 
per handful.

Cheetaur Claw

Description: Killing Cheetaurs is tough, but it's well worth the reward 
of claws, which can net you 5 silvers apiece from the Healer.

you find on their dead bodies, you can give their beards to the Healer 
for two Healing Potions.

Kobold Mushroom

rather useless.

Empty Flask
Found: Purchase at Dry Goods for 2 silvers, or get whenever you drink

carrying liquids and powders.  If you have extra, you can sell them to

Flask of Water
Found: Spiegelsee
Description: Water's not all that useful, but it exists, so there ya 
go...

Rock

guy a nasty bump before you actually hurt him.

Puzzle Pieces:

Golden Ring

Description: This is the Healer's lost ring.  Give it back for your 
reward of six gold and two Healing Potions.

Glowing Gem
Found: Snow Field, given by Brauggi in exchange for 50 apples.
Description: A gem that glows like the flare of the frost flame, or 
something...

Undead Unguent
Found: Healer's Hut for 100 silvers
Description: Rub this unguent on your body to repel the undead.  
Normally, they repel you.  It doesn't last long, so do it just before 
you enter a dangerous undead situation.

Mandrake Root
Found: Graveyard
Description: This root's has rather powerful magical properties.  
According to the legends, it must be pulled from a dead man's grave at 
midnight to be useful.

Description: This simple seed seems to be solid, so don't sell the 
sucker, since you need to send it to some sexy sapling.

Magic Acorn

Description: Well, who knows exactly what it does, but it's an 
ingredient for a Dispel Potion.

Flask of Flying Water
Found: Flying Falls
Description: Now, it'll only say "Flask of Water", but if you pick it 
up, it'll be the proper water.  It's an ingredient for the Dispel 
Potion.

Handful of Green Fur

enchantment or shape-change spell.

5. Fighter Walkthrough

Points added will be shown in parentheses...

As a Fighter, you'll be doing a lot of such, so you'll probably want to 
boost your Strength, Vitality, and Weapon Use.  Of course, if you're 
going for max, you'll probably want to dump it all in Intelligence, 
since that's the hardest stat to raise...

You'll start with a Broadsword, a Shield, Leather Armor, five Rations, 
four gold, and 10 silver.

Town of Spielburg:

You'll stroll into town (1), take a short look around, and the sheriff 
will greet you.  Question him for a bit (1).  First good place to head 
is to the Hero's Tale Inn.  You can question Shameen there (1).  Have a 
sit down and Shema will show up.  You can ask her a few things.  Order 
some food (1).  Be sure to ask one or both of them about Abdulla, to 
know that he'll show up later that night.

Leave the Inn and head west to the end of Main Street.  Enter the Magic 
Shop (y'know, the place with the big eye above it).  Meet and question 
Zara (1).  This is probably the only time you'll see Zara, since you're 
not a practitioner.  Leave the Magic Shop.

Head to the Guild at the end of the screen.  Enter and read the 
Adventurer's Logbook (4).  Sign it, too (1).  Take a look at the Quest 
Board, too (6).  Wake up the Guildmaster, Wolfgang.  Question him about 
heroes, monsters, and the stuff on the Quest Board (1).  Question him 
about the "curse", too, and related topics...

Once you've finished with that, leave and go the other way on Main 
Street.  You'll eventually reach Market Street.  Speak to Hilde the 
Centaur (1).  If you wish, you can buy 50 apples (3).  At five silvers 
total, you should easily be able to afford it, but it could weigh you 
down considerably.  Also, head into the Dry Goods Store and speak to 
Kaspar the proprietor (1).  Buy some food if you wish.  As you'll 
notice, you can't buy armor.  Live with it for now.  You'll have 
enough, eventually.

Head west to Tavern Street.  Head into the alley.  You'll find Sam 
begging on the street.  Give him a silver (1), and you'll be able to 
question him (1).  Ask him about night and the brigands.  Also, ask some 
other topics related to what he brings up.

Walk into the Tavern.  Note the odd thing next to the center stool.  
That's a note.  Pick up the note, and you'll learn some interesting 
things about two guys named "B" (2).  You can order some ale if you 
want, but don't drink three glasses of ale, or any Troll's Sweat (-5), 
or Dragon's Breath (too hot to handle)...

That's about all there is to do inside town.  It's probably not Sunset 
yet, so you can go outside for a bit.  When Sunset rolls around, go to 
the inn, where you'll find Abdulla Doo lost in his own sorrows.  Have a 
seat.  You can order some food now if you haven't already.  Have a chat 
with Abdulla (5).  Ask him about the brigands and his attack.  Give him 
some money or a ration (2).  He'll tell you about his magic carpet and 
Shapeir, giving you some foreshadowing of your next quest.  Might want 
to deal with this one first.  Anyway, you probably should sleep at the 
Inn tonight (1).

The next morning, head out to start your adventure proper.

Outside the Town:

You're now outside of town, whistling to yourself (1).  You can do this 
on whatever day you want, but be sure to always keep an eye on the time 
so you know when to bed down.

First order of business is to head down the road.  You'll eventually 
reach the end of the road, where a recent avalanche has blocked the 
pass.  Dang...  Head back along the road.  Walk back and forth between 
road screens and eventually you'll come upon a fox trapped near the 
road.  He'll ask you to free him.  Do so, and he'll give you a piece 
of advice and info (10).

Head back towards the gate.  There's a chance there'll be a guy 
outside the gate.  This is Bruno, the seller of info.  You can try 
asking him things, but he'll want money first.  Give him a silver, and 
he'll ask for another one.  Give him another and you can ask about 
Baba Yaga, the Castle, and goblins.  You don't really need info from 
him, but you get points for some preliminary questioning (2).

Now, head north to the Healer's Hut.  Knock on the door and question 
the Healer about her potions, components, and her ring (2).  Head on 
outside.  Note the nest in the tree.  Click the Hand on the ground to 
grab some rocks.  Click a rock on the nest, and after a few throws, the 
nest will drop to the ground.  You'll find the ring (that was easy) (3).  
Go back inside and give the ring to her.  She'll give you six golds and 
two Healing Potions for your reward (10).

Head west to the farm.  You'll find Heinrich the Centaur there.  
Question him about his name, his daughter, the farm, and the brigands 
(1).  Be absolutely sure to ask him about "leader" as well (3).

Go back east and north to the Castle Gates.  Question Karl the 
Gatekeeper (5), about the castle, the baron, Barnard, Elsa, Baba Yaga, 
and the curse.  Click the Hand on the gate and he'll open it for you.  
Enter the Castle (1).

Once inside the Courtyard, you may chance to see the Weapon Master.  
Question him (1) about fighting.  He'll ask you if you fight.  Say yes, 
and he'll ask if you want to train.  Say yes, and you'll give him a 
gold and fight against him in a side view battle (3).  Fight him, and 
you'll probably get exhausted before long.  Once you build up your 
skills a lot, (Stamina and Weapon Use at 100 each) you can probably 
beat him.  Just attack repeatedly, and push him to the far end of the 
courtyard.  He'll give up, and walk off, never to return (10).

NOTE: Unless you got some kooky program to slow down your game, you'll 
never be able to beat the Weapon Master on today's modern machines.  It's 
just hopeless, even at max stats.

Also, you can head east to the Stables.  The Stable Hand will ask you 
to work.  Agree to it, and you'll do some good old fashioned raking (5).  
You'll get five silvers for your troubles.

That's about all you can do for now in the outskirts of town.  You'll 
do some more later, but this is all the preliminary stuff.

Spielburg Forest:

If you're feeling up to it, you can finally head out into the wild 
woods and take out one or two monsters.  Make sure your stamina and 
health are high enough before you do any fighting.

You probably won't be able to fight anything right off the bat, but, as 
a Fighter, you'll get points for all the different monsters you kill.  

Goblin: 1
Purple Saurus: 1
Brigand: 1
Mantray: 2
Cheetaur: 4
Saurus Rex: 4
Troll: 4

Check the Monsters section for how and when to fight these guys.  Also, 
remember to get Claws from the Cheetaur, and the beard from a Troll.  
Give them both to the Healer (2, 2).

Now's a good time to check the map.  Head up to Erana's Peace.  This is 
the best place to sleep, as it will fully restore you.  Also, you can 
chow on the fruit trees (2) once a day to fully satisfy you and save on 
rations.  Grab a bunch of flowers while you're here.  You can give them 
to the Healer (1).

Check the map and head towards the Mushroom Ring.  Grab some Magic 
Mushrooms to give to the Healer (1).

Other Points of Interest:

Head to the Snow Field.  You'll find Brauggi here.  He'll want a 
bargain of fruit.  If you hadn't done it yet, buy fifty apples from 
Hilde in town.  Give them to him, and you'll get the Glowing Gem (8).  
Neato.

Head to Spiegelsee in the south end.  Pause for some peaceful 
reflection (1).

Go to Flying Falls.  You'll see a door on the cliffside.  Throw some 
rocks at the door.  Hit it three times and Henry the Hermit will walk 
out and make the ladder appear on his wall.  Climb up it.  Knock on the 
door (1).  Make sure you step to the right of the door so it doesn't 
knock you off the cliff.  You'll walk inside (5).  Have a seat and chat 
it up with Henry (2).  Ask him about the cave, magic, the brigands, and 
all related topics he brings up.

Go to Mount Zauberburg.  Read the cute magic signs, then climb the 
mountain.  Once you reach the house, the Gargoyle above the house will 
ask you three questions.  Make sure you answer them correctly.  Here's 
the list of possible questions:

Name: Click on your name
Quest: "Glory"
Fave Color: "Purple" (like the house)
Whose spell protects the town: "Erana"
Who do you seek: "Erasmus"
Baron's first name: "Stefan"
Thieves' Password: "I don't know" (No thieves allowed! ^_^)

Anyway, once inside (3), try not to fiddle with things.  Look all you 
want, just don't touch.  Head up to the tower.  Have a seat and you'll 
talk to Erasmus and Fenrus.  Ask them (1) about all the spellcasters in 
the valley.  Ask them about Erana, Baba Yaga, Zara, the Warlock, Henry, 
and anything magic you might want to know about.  Also, ask him about 
curse and countercurse.  Try to Walk once you're done and he'll send you to 
the bottom of the mountain.

At some point in your adventure, preferably after you built up your 
skills a bit, and have a decent cash flow, go to the Healer and 
purchase Undead Unguent for 100 silvers.  Head to Baba Yaga's Hut on 
the map.  Bonehead (the skull at the gates) will turn you away, unless 
you agree to deal with him.  Agree to deal with him (2).  He'll 
want a glowing gem for his eyes.  Also, ask him about the hut and the 
rhyme (Hut of brown, now sit down).  If you have the Glowing Gem from 
the Snow Field, give it to Bonehead, and he'll lower the gate (10).  
Click the Mouth on the house and click on the proper rhyme, which will 
appear if you know it and the house will squat (7).  Head on in (2).  Baba 
Yaga doesn't take too kindly to visitors, as you'll soon see.  When 
she asks you your name, tell her, then agree to help, and agree to the 
task she gives you, and she'll turn you loose.  Your mission now is to 
go to the graveyard and get some Mandrake, and you have to pull it at 
midnight (when it says "Middle of the Night" on the time thing).  
Fight a bit and rest until it says "You are getting tired."  At that 
time, use the Undead Unguent (2) and head to the graveyard.  You'll see 
the ghosts playin' around.  Walk over to the little red plant growing 
out the grave and take it (6).  Once you snag it, run on back to Baba 
Yaga's and she'll take it from you (3), and you'll be off the hook.

Comes a Hero from the East:

Now that you've messed around a bit, it's time to do what you came here 
to do.  To start that, head to the Dryad's Tree in the southwest corner 
of the forest.  You'll follow a white stag in there.  Once you enter 
the area with a tree, the Dryad will pop out of her tree and ask if 
you're a friend of the forest.  Say "yes" (1) and she'll ask you to 
get a seed from the Spore Spitting Spirea in the north.

Find the Spore Spitting Spirea area on the map (SSS).  Once you get 
there, throw some rocks, and you'll eventually connect with the seed 
they're tossing around.  Pick it up (7) and head back to the Dryad's 
Tree.  Say "yes" and you'll give her the seed (7).  She'll give you the 
recipe for a Dispel Potion:

Flowers from Erana's Peace
Green Fur
Fairy Dust
Magic Acorn
Flying Water

Once she returns to her tree, she'll drop a Magic Acorn from her 
branches.  Grab it (1).

Odds are you'll already have the Flowers turned in.

Green Fur: Head towards the Meep's Peep (MP on the map).  Note the cute 
little meeps popping out of their holes.  Click the Mouth on a Meep when 
one's popped up.  The Green Meep will jump out and talk to you.  Ask him 
about meeps, rocks, and fur (1).  Ask about green fur, and he'll give 
you some (5).

Flying Water: If you have an Empty Flask, go to Flying Falls.  Get some 
water from the falls (3).

Fairy Dust: Wait until night and go to the Mushroom Ring.  You'll see 
the cute little fairies dancing around.  They'll tell you to dance.  So 
agree to dance (3).  After you finish, ask them (1) about things (fairies, 
dryad, dust).  Once you ask them about dust, they'll give you some (8).

Now that you have all five ingredients, go to the Healer's Hut.  Give 
her the Acorn (5), Green Fur (2), Fairy Dust (2), Flying Water (2), and 
the Flowers if you haven't already (1, if you haven't already).  She'll 
get to work on the Potion.  Leave and come back, and she'll give it 
to you (7).

Free the Man from in the Beast:

Okay, you should be all set to tackle some real quests, now.  You'll 
probably want your important skills at about 60 (Strength, Agility, 
Vitality, Weapon Use) or more.

You'll probably want some Healing and Vigor Potions for this.  Head to 
the Cave (C on the map) and you'll find an Ogre.  Kick his butt (2).  
Once he's dead, click the Hand on the chest, and if your Strength is high 
enough, you'll force it open and get 1 gold and 43 silvers.

Heal up, and enter the cave.  You'll notice that rather nasty-looking 
bear chained to the floor by a manacle.  Don't fight him.  Give him a 
ration instead (or an apple or vegetable) (5) and you'll be able to 
walk past him.

Enter this new section of the cave (2) and you'll see a Kobold sitting 
with a key around his neck.  Fight the bugger.  Just keep stabbing 
until he dies (sinks into the ground) (10).  Pick up the key he leaves 
behind (7).  Drink a Healing Potion and walk towards the bottom of the 
cave.  You'll bump into a chest.  Click the Hand on the chest (BOOM!) and 
take the 6 golds and 10 silvers left behind (5).

Now, return to the cave with the bear and click the Brass Key on the 
manacle.  The bear will turn into (Tah dah!) the Baronet, Barnard von 
Spielburg! (25) He'll act all snooty, and teleport back to the castle with 
his amulet.

Go to the castle.  Karl will let you in.  Walk up to the keep and 
they'll let you in (10).  The Baron will thank you himself for helping 
his son.  Ask him (3) about himself, his family, the brigands (leader 
and warlock), and the prophecy.  Leave and he'll ask you to stay the 
night and will give you the 50 gold reward.

Bring the Child from the Band:

Now it's time to take care of the Brigands.  But how?  Well, you could 
go to the Ambush down south, jump over the log, and fight your way in, 
but you won't get full credit...

Instead, go to town.  Go to the Dry Goods and buy the Chainmail Armor 
with your reward (3).  Go to the Tavern and you'll find a note under 
the stool (2, if you didn't get the first one).  Archery range at noon, 
eh?  Wait until the time says "midday" and head towards the Archery 
Range from the side.  You'll see Bruno and Brutus (a brigand) discussing 
matters.  You'll learn about a secret entrance to the Fortress and the 
"secret word" (Hiden Goseke).  Bruno will take off (12).  Now, you need 
to get the key to that secret door.  If you have daggers, you can 
throw them at him to kill him, or you can go south and go back north 
right away (before Bruno spots you down there).  Once you get back 
north, you'll fight him.  Once he's dead, search him to get the key.  
Leave the area and go south to where "the bouncer" hops around.  This 
is the Antwerp.  You can run around him so he doesn't bop you.  Once 
you get to the door, unlock it with the key, open it (10), and click the 
Mouth on the door to say "Hiden Goseke" (5).  This will cause Fred the 
Troll to retreat to the back of the cave.

Enter the cave (2).  The passage leads down to the bottom of the screen, 
and out a southeast exit.

You'll come upon the Fortress Gate now.  You'll see a minotaur, Toro, 
guarding the area.  What, do I have to spell it out for you?  Get out 
there and kick his butt!  (Make sure you're healed first)  You won't 
kill him, but he will pass out from blood loss (5).  Search him for 
50 silvers.  Bash the gate open with your incredible strength and you'll 
enter the fortress. (8)

Now, you'll be in the courtyard of the fortress.  Directly in front of 
you will be two blockades, and a rug in between them.  You can also go 
to the left or the right of the blockades.  Don't step on the rug, or 
go to the right (without, at least, clicking the Eye on the tripline 
stretched there).  Go to the left to be safe.  Now, you're in front of a 
pit.  There are two bridges.  One has a sign that says "Cross Here".  Cross 
on the bridge on the right (the one with the sign).  Now, take a close look 
at the last area.  Note the grayish-black line.  That's a tripline.  
Click the Eye on it, and you can walk across, after which you'll 
automatically enter the next room. (8)

Now, you're in the fortress' main hall/mess hall.  Things will move 
really fast in here, so read carefully.  Do anything wrong, and you 
pretty much die, so save as you enter here.  Just as soon as you enter 
the room, click the Hand on the door behind you.  Walk up to the door on 
the upper right and the chair near it.  A few brigands will walk up behind 
you, note the closed door and leave.  As soon as the brigands start to 
leave, not before they leave, click the Hand on the chair.  Walk towards 
the nearby candelabra.  Now, three brigands (who look awfully familiar, 
nyuk nyuk) will enter the room and walk towards you from behind the table.  
As soon as the first one walks behind the table, click the Hand on the 
nearby candelabra.  Oh, a wise guy, eh?  Now, walk in front of the table, 
quickly, and after the last one has passed the chair on the left, click the 
Hand on the table, and then on the rope above you.  The rest will soon 
be history.  Walk through the far door. (8)

This is an interesting room.  Here's the top-view layout:

                         7       5   
                        6|   ME  |                                 
                         }   }   |2                                
                       4 +---+---+                                 
                             }   |3                                
                        1----+-+-}                                 
                               |                                   
                          +----+                                   
                          |                                        
                          E                                      

You'll enter at point E.  Note that any "}" in the area is a trap door.  
If you walk over a trap door, or off any platform, you'll tumble out 
door 5 and keep rolling.  To stop, type "stop", and you'll skid to a 
stop.

First things first.  Talk to ME.  This is the Brigand Warlock.  If 
you've been paying attention at all, you'd guess that this is Yorick, 
the Jester.  Ask him (2) about Elsa or Yorick (8).  Unfortunately, even 
with all that talking, he'll interfere with the process, tossing books, 
apple cores, etc. at you.  If, by chance, you have magic, try to cast a 
spell, and he'll take off.

Anyway, walk over to door 1 and you'll come out the doggie door at 2.  
Enter door 3 and you'll come up at door 4 which is above the floor.  
Pull the chain and you'll open 5.  Head back and go through 5.  You'll 
come out at 6.  Open door 7 and get out of the way before it flattens 
you.  Now, walk through door 7 and into the final room. (12)

NOTE: On the VGA version, it's VERY tough to make the run over to the 
door.  Turn up the Speed on the Control Panel all the way, then quickly 
pull the rope, walk back through the opening, and into the door.  It's 
really tough, but possible...

Finally, you reach the Brigand Leader's room.  She'll hop over her desk 
to challenge you.  If you've figured anything out at all in this game, 
you'll know to throw the Dispel Potion at her.  Will our mystery 
guest enter and sign in please!  It's Elsa von Spielburg! (35)

Elsa and Yorick will take off and you'll be left in the room.  The 
brigands are trying to bash the door down.  Quick, grab the two Healing 
Potions and the Magic Mirror.  MAKE SURE YOU GRAB THE MIRROR! (10)

Now, leave the room by the passage Yorick used.

Drive the Curser from the Land:

It's time to settle the score with Baba Yaga.  You'll come out at the 
Antwerp's spot.  Head up to Baba Yaga's hut.  Bonehead will let you in.  
Make the hut sit and head on in.  As soon as Baba Yaga appears, click the 
Mirror on yourself.  Baba Yaga will attempt to turn you into a frog again.  
Heh heh...  (50)

Anyway, she'll take off and you'll automatically head to Castle 
Spielburg for your reward ceremony. (25)

Congratulations!  You've proven yourself a hero!  If you've done 
everything, you should have 500 points!  Now, it's off to Shapeir in 
Quest for Glory II.

***********************************************************************

6. Magic User Walkthrough

Points added will be shown in parentheses...

As a Magic User, you'll be hitting the magic a lot, so be sure to 
practice all your spells, particularly Flame Dart, as it's your main 
combat spell.  Your most important stats are Intelligence and Magic, 
but don't forget to beef your Vitality, Agility, and Strength, so you'll 
survive any chance encounters.

You'll start with a Dagger, Leather Armor, five Rations, four gold, 
ten silver, and the Zap Spell.

Town of Spielburg:

You'll stroll into town (1), take a short look around, and the sheriff 
will greet you.  Question him for a bit (1).  First good place to head 
is to the Hero's Tale Inn.  You can question Shameen there (1).  Have a 
sit down and Shema will show up.  You can ask her a few things.  Order 
some food (1).  Be sure to ask one or both of them about Abdulla, to 
know that he'll show up later that night.

Leave the Inn and head west to the end of Main Street.  Enter the Magic 
Shop (y'know, the place with the big eye above it).  Meet and question 
Zara (1).  You won't be able to afford Flame Dart yet, but you can buy 
Fetch or Open right now, and I suggest you buy one of them.  Anyway, 
for full points, you'll have to buy all three spells. (2, 2, 2)

Head to the Guild at the end of the screen.  Enter and read the 
Adventurer's Logbook (4).  Sign it, too (1).  Take a look at the Quest 
Board, too (6).  Wake up the Guildmaster, Wolfgang.  Question him about 
heroes, monsters, and the stuff on the Quest Board (1).  Question him 
about the "curse", too, and related topics...

Once you've finished with that, leave and go the other way on Main 
Street.  You'll eventually reach Market Street.  Speak to Hilde the 
Centaur (1).  If you wish, you can buy 50 apples (3).  At five silvers 
total, you should easily be able to afford it, but it could weigh you 
down considerably.  Also, head into the Dry Goods Store and speak to 
Kaspar the proprietor (1).  Buy some food if you wish.

Head west to Tavern Street.  Head into the alley.  You'll find Sam 
begging on the street.  Give him a silver (1), and you'll be able to 
question him (1).  Ask him about night and the brigands.  Also, ask some 
other topics related to what he brings up.

Walk into the Tavern.  Note the odd thing next to the center stool.  
That's a note.  Pick up the note, and you'll learn some interesting 
things about two guys named "B" (2).  You can order some ale if you 
want, but don't drink three glasses of ale, or any Troll's Sweat (-5), 
or Dragon's Breath (too hot to handle)...

That's about all there is to do inside town.  It's probably not Sunset 
yet, so you can go outside for a bit.  When Sunset rolls around, go to 
the inn, where you'll find Abdulla Doo lost in his own sorrows.  Have a 
seat.  You can order some food now if you haven't already.  Have a chat 
with Abdulla (5).  Ask him about the brigands and his attack.  Give him 
some money or a ration (2).  He'll tell you about his magic carpet and 
Shapeir, giving you some foreshadowing of your next quest.  Might want 
to deal with this one first.  Anyway, you probably should sleep at the 
Inn tonight (1).

The next morning, head out to start your adventure proper.

Outside the Town:

You're now outside of town, whistling to yourself (1).  You can do this 
on whatever day you want, but be sure to always keep an eye on the time 
so you know when to bed down.

First order of business is to head down the road.  You'll eventually 
reach the end of the road, where a recent avalanche has blocked the 
pass.  Dang...  Head back along the road.  Walk back and forth between 
road screens and eventually you'll come upon a fox trapped near the 
road.  He'll ask you to free him.  Do so, and he'll give you a piece 
of advice and info (10).

Head back towards the gate.  There's a chance there'll be a guy 
outside the gate.  This is Bruno, the seller of info.  You can try 
asking him things, but he'll want money first.  Give him a silver, and 
he'll ask for another one.  Give him another and you can ask about 
Baba Yaga, the Castle, and goblins.  You don't really need info from 
him, but you get points for some preliminary questioning (2).

Now, head north to the Healer's Hut.  Knock on the door and question 
the Healer about her potions, components, and her ring (2).  Head on 
outside.  Note the nest in the tree.  If you have the Fetch Spell, you 
can go right ahead and snag it.  You'll find the ring inside.  Go back 
inside and give the ring to her.  She'll give you six golds and two 
Healing Potions for your reward (10).  You can use it for some new 
spells from Zara.

Head west to the farm.  You'll find Heinrich the Centaur there.  
Question him about his name, his daughter, the farm, and the brigands 
(1).  Be absolutely sure to ask him about "leader" as well (3).

Go back east and north to the Castle Gates.  Question Karl the 
Gatekeeper (5), about the castle, the baron, Barnard, Elsa, Baba Yaga, 
and the curse.  Click the Hand on the gate and he'll open it for you.  
Enter the Castle (1).

Once inside the Courtyard, you may chance to see the Weapon Master.  
Question him (1) about fighting.  Unfortunately, you can't fight him, 
since you're not a fighter...

Also, you can head east to the Stables.  The Stable Hand will ask you 
to work.  Agree to it, and you'll do some good old fashioned raking (5).  
You'll get five silvers for your troubles.

That's about all you can do for now in the outskirts of town.  You'll 
do some more later, but this is all the preliminary stuff.

Spielburg Forest:

If you're feeling up to it, you can finally head out into the wild 
woods and take out one or two monsters.  Make sure your stamina and 
health are high enough before you do any fighting.

You probably won't be able to fight just anything right off the bat.  
No more than a goblin or two per day...

Check the Monsters section for how and when to fight all the monsters.  
Also, remember to get Claws from the Cheetaur, and the beard from a 
Troll.  Give them both to the Healer (2, 2).  Yeah, even though you 
don't get points for killing, you still have to fight the Cheetaur and 
Troll for the components.

Now's a good time to check the map.  Head up to Erana's Peace.  This is 
the best place to sleep, as it will fully restore you.  Also, you can 
chow on the fruit trees (2) once a day to fully satisfy you and save on 
rations.  As a Magic User, you should sleep here at least once (5).  
Also, read the runes on the stone.  Open it, eh?  If you have the Open 
Spell, cast it, and grab the Calm Spell inside (4).  Hmm...  Looks like 
this isn't the final resting place of Erana.  Grab a bunch of flowers 
while you're here.  You can give them to the Healer (1).

Check the map and head towards the Mushroom Ring.  Grab some Magic 
Mushrooms to give to the Healer (1).

Other Points of Interest:

Head to the Snow Field.  You'll find Brauggi here.  He'll want a 
bargain of fruit.  If you hadn't done it yet, buy fifty apples from 
Hilde in town.  Give them to him, and you'll get the Glowing Gem (8).  
Neato.

Head to Spiegelsee in the south end.  Pause for some peaceful 
reflection (1).

Head off to the Meep's Peep in the west.  Talk to the Meeps, and the 
green one will jump out and talk to you.  Ask him (1) about meeps and 
anything.  Ask him about magic and he'll give you the Detect Spell. (4)

Go to Flying Falls.  You'll see a door on the cliffside.  Cast Detect 
and the ladder to the door will appear.  Climb up it.  Knock on the 
door (1).  Make sure you step to the right of the door so it doesn't 
knock you off the cliff.  You'll walk inside (5).  Have a seat and chat 
it up with Henry (2).  Ask him about the cave, magic, the brigands, and 
all related topics he brings up.  When you ask about magic, be sure to 
ask about Trigger.  He'll give you the Trigger Spell. (4)

Go to Mount Zauberburg.  Read the cute magic signs, then climb the 
mountain.  Once you reach the house, the Gargoyle above the house will 
ask you three questions.  Make sure you answer them correctly.  Here's 
the list of possible questions:

Name: Select your name
Quest: "Glory"
Fave Color: "Purple" (like the house)
Whose spell protects the town: "Erana"
Who do you seek: "Erasmus"
Baron's first name: "Stefan"
Thieves' Password: "I don't know" (No thieves allowed! ^_^)

Anyway, once inside (3), try not to fiddle with things.  Look all you 
want, just don't touch.  Head up to the tower.  Have a seat and you'll 
talk to Erasmus and Fenrus.  

He'll recognize you as a practitioner of magic and will want to play 
Mage's Maze with you.  You need Open, Fetch, Trigger, and Flame Dart to 
play.  If you have all those spells, agree to play (5):

So, you've got the playing field.  You start at the upper left with the 
white bug and Erasmus' is the purple bug in the upper right.  The bugs 
are self-willed, and there's not much you can do to get them moving in 
the direction you want to.  Just hope you get to the exit in the bottom 
right.

Use Fetch to move ladders and bridges around.  Click on the Fetch button 
and drag the thing you want to move to the spot you want.

Use Open to move boulders.  Click the button, then click the boulder to 
move it to a random location.

Use Flame Dart to create a miniature flame ball that attracts the 
creatures, or something...

Use Trigger to change the size of your bug.  You'll go from small to 
medium to large and back to small again.  Small creatures can pass 
through the small holes, and they move the fastest.  Medium creatures 
can climb ladders and eat small creatures, but they move slower.  Large 
creatures move the slowest, but they eat medium creatures, but not 
small creatures.  Like-sized creatures are generally attracted to each 
other.

So, do your best to get your bug there before Erasmus, and he'll teach 
you the Dazzle Spell. (12)

Once you've done playing, ask them (1) about all the spellcasters in 
the valley.  Ask them about Erana, Baba Yaga, Zara, the Warlock, Henry, 
and anything magic you might want to know about.  Also, ask him about 
curse and countercurse.  Try to Walk once you're done and he'll send you to 
the bottom of the mountain.

At some point in your adventure, preferably after you built up your 
skills a bit, and have a decent cash flow, go to the Healer and 
purchase Undead Unguent for 100 silvers.  Head to Baba Yaga's Hut on 
the map.  Bonehead (the skull at the gates) will turn you away, unless 
you agree to deal with him.  Ask about the deal then say "yes" (2).  He'll 
want a glowing gem for his eyes.  Also, ask him about the hut and the 
rhyme (Hut of brown, now sit down).  If you have the Glowing Gem from 
the Snow Field, give it to Bonehead, and he'll lower the gate (10).  
Say the rhyme and the house will squat (7).  Head on in (2).  Baba 
Yaga doesn't take too kindly to visitors, as you'll soon see.  When 
she asks you your name, tell her, then agree to help, and agree to the 
task she gives you, and she'll turn you loose.  Your mission now is to 
go to the graveyard and get some Mandrake, and you have to pull it at 
midnight (when it says "Middle of the Night" on the time thing).  
Fight a bit and rest until it says "You are getting tired."  At that 
time, use the Undead Unguent (2) and head to the graveyard.  You'll see 
the ghosts playin' around.  Walk over to the little red plant growing 
out the grave and take it (6).  Once you snag it, run on back to Baba 
Yaga's and she'll take it from you (3), and you'll be off the hook.

Comes a Hero from the East:

Now that you've messed around a bit, it's time to do what you came here 
to do.  To start that, head to the Dryad's Tree in the southwest corner 
of the forest.  You'll follow a white stag in there.  Once you enter 
the area with a tree, the Dryad will pop out of her tree and ask if 
you're a friend of the forest.  Say "yes" (1) and she'll ask you to 
get a seed from the Spore Spitting Spirea in the north.

Find the Spore Spitting Spirea area on the map (SSS).  Once you get 
there, cast a Fetch Spell, and you should snag the seed they're tossing 
around.  Pick it up (7) and head back to the Dryad's Tree.  Say "yes" 
and you'll give her the seed (7).  She'll give you the recipe for a 
Dispel Potion:

Flowers from Erana's Peace
Green Fur
Fairy Dust
Magic Acorn
Flying Water

Once she returns to her tree, she'll drop a Magic Acorn from her 
branches.  Grab it (1).

Odds are you'll already have the Flowers turned in.

Green Fur: Head towards the Meep's Peep.  Ask about green fur, and 
he'll give you some (5).

Flying Water: If you have an Empty Flask, go to Flying Falls.  Get some 
water from the falls (3).

Fairy Dust: Wait until night and go to the Mushroom Ring.  You'll see 
the cute little fairies dancing around.  They'll tell you to dance.  So 
say you will (3).  After you finish, ask them (1) about things (fairies, 
dryad, dust).  Once you ask them about dust, they'll give you some (8).

Now that you have all five ingredients, go to the Healer's Hut.  Give 
her the Acorn (5), Green Fur (2), Fairy Dust (2), Flying Water (2), and 
the Flowers if you haven't already (1, if you haven't already).  She'll 
get to work on the Potion.  Leave and come back, and she'll give it 
to you (7).

Free the Man from in the Beast:

Okay, you should be all set to tackle some real quests, now.  You'll 
probably want your important skills at about 60 (Intelligence, Magic, 
and the skill in Flame Dart) or more.

You'll probably want some Healing, Vigor, and Magic Power Potions for 
this.  Head to the Cave (C on the map) and you'll find an Ogre.  Kick 
his butt if you want.  Once he's dead, cast Open, and if your skill is 
high enough, you'll open it and get 1 gold and 43 silvers.  If you don't 
want to, just cast Calm and run past him.

Heal up, and enter the cave.  You'll notice that rather nasty-looking 
bear chained to the floor by a manacle.  Don't fight him.  Give him a 
ration instead (or an apple or vegetable) (5) and you'll be able to 
walk past him.  You can even Calm it if you want.

Enter this new section of the cave (2) and you'll see a Kobold sitting 
with a key around his neck.  This is your first real magical duel, 
although it's more brute force than anything.  Cast a bunch of Flame 
Darts at him to kill him.  He'll counter with Force Bolt and Reversal 
(new spells you'll learn in the next game).  Keep pounding, taking 
potions as necessary, and he'll sink into the ground, dead (10).  Pick 
up the key he leaves behind (7).  Cast Detect and you'll find a chest 
near the bottom of the cave.  Cast Trigger or Open a safe distance 
away (BOOM!) and take the 6 golds and 10 silvers left behind (5).

Now, return to the cave with the bear and use the Brass Key on the 
manacle.  The bear will turn into (Tah dah!) the Baronet, Barnard von 
Spielburg! (25) He'll act all snooty, and teleport back to the castle 
with his amulet.

Go to the castle.  Karl will let you in.  Walk up to the keep and 
they'll let you in (10).  The Baron will thank you himself for helping 
his son.  Ask him (3) about himself, his family, the brigands (leader 
and warlock), and the prophecy.  Leave and he'll ask you to stay the 
night and will give you the 50 gold reward.

Bring the Child from the Band:

Now it's time to take care of the Brigands.  But how?  Well, you could 
go to the Ambush down south, jump over the log, and fight your way in, 
but you won't get full credit, and you'll get hurt a lot...

Instead, go to town.  Go to the Tavern and you'll find a note under 
the stool (2, if you didn't get the first one).  Archery range at noon, 
eh?  Wait until the time says "midday" and head towards the Archery 
Range from the side.  You'll see Bruno and Brutus (a brigand) discussing 
matters.  You'll learn about a secret entrance to the Fortress and the 
"secret word" (Hiden Goseke).  Bruno will take off (12).  Now, you need 
to get the key to that secret door.  Cast a bunch of Flame Darts at him 
to kill him, or you can go south and go back north right away (before 
Bruno spots you down there).  Once you get back north, you'll fight 
him.  Once he's dead, search him to get the key.  Leave the area and go 
south to where "the bouncer" hops around.  This is the Antwerp.  You 
can run around him so he doesn't bop you.  Once you get to the door, 
unlock it with the key, open it (10), and click the Mouth on the rock to 
say "Hiden Goseke" (5).  This will cause Fred the Troll to retreat to the 
back of the cave.

Enter the cave (2).  The passage leads down to the bottom of the screen, 
and out by a southeast exit.

You'll come upon the Fortress Gate now.  You'll see a minotaur, Toro, 
guarding the area.  Cast Calm to put him to sleep.  Now, walk out and 
cast Open on the door and you'll enter the fortress. (8)

Now, you'll be in the courtyard of the fortress.  Directly in front of 
you will be two blockades, and a rug in between them.  You can also go 
to the left or the right of the blockades.  Don't step on the rug, or 
go to the right (without, at least, clicking the Eye on the tripline 
stretched there).  Go to the left to be safe.  Now, you're in front of a 
pit.  There are two bridges.  One has a sign that says "Cross Here".  Cross 
on the bridge on the right (the one with the sign).  Now, take a close look 
at the last area.  Note the grayish-black line.  That's a tripline.  
Click the Eye on it, and you can walk across, after which you'll 
automatically enter the next room. (8)

Now, you're in the fortress' main hall/mess hall.  Things will move 
really fast in here, so read carefully.  Do anything wrong, and you 
pretty much die, so save as you enter here.  Just as soon as you enter 
the room, click the Hand on the door behind you.  Walk up to the door on 
the upper right and the chair near it.  A few brigands will walk up behind 
you, note the closed door and leave.  As soon as the brigands start to 
leave, not before they leave, click the Hand on the chair.  Walk towards 
the nearby candelabra.  Now, three brigands (who look awfully familiar, 
nyuk nyuk) will enter the room and walk towards you from behind the table.  
As soon as the first one walks behind the table, click the Hand on the 
nearby candelabra.  Oh, a wise guy, eh?  Now, walk in front of the table, 
quickly, and after the last one has passed the chair on the left, click the 
Hand on the table, and then on the rope above you.  The rest will soon 
be history.  Walk through the far door. (8)

This is an interesting room.  Here's the top-view layout:

                         7       5   
                        6|   ME  |                                 
                         }   }   |2                                
                       4 +---+---+                                 
                             }   |3                                
                        1----+-+-}                                 
                               |                                   
                          +----+                                   
                          |                                        
                          E                                      

You'll enter at point E.  Note that any "}" in the area is a trap door.  
If you walk over a trap door, or off any platform, you'll tumble out 
door 5 and keep rolling.  To stop, type "stop", and you'll skid to a 
stop.

First things first.  Talk to ME.  This is the Brigand Warlock.  If 
you've been paying attention at all, you'd guess that this is Yorick, 
the Jester.  Ask him (2) about Elsa or Yorick (8).  Unfortunately, even 
with all that talking, he'll interfere with the process, tossing books, 
apple cores, etc. at you.  If, by chance, you have magic, try to cast a 
spell, and he'll take off.

Anyway, walk over to door 1 and you'll come out the doggie door at 2.  
Enter door 3 and you'll come up at door 4 which is above the floor.  
Pull the chain and you'll open 5.  Head back and go through 5.  You'll 
come out at 6.  Open door 7 and get out of the way before it flattens 
you.  Now, walk through door 7 and into the final room. (12)

NOTE: On the VGA version, it's VERY tough to make the run over to the 
door.  Turn up the Speed on the Control Panel all the way, then quickly 
pull the rope, walk back through the opening, and into the door.  It's 
really tough, but possible...

Finally, you reach the Brigand Leader's room.  She'll hop over her desk 
to challenge you.  If you've figured anything out at all in this game, 
you'll know to throw the Dispel Potion at her.  Will our mystery 
guest enter and sign in please!  It's Elsa von Spielburg! (35)

Elsa and Yorick will take off and you'll be left in the room.  The 
brigands are trying to bash the door down.  Quick, grab the two Healing 
Potions and the Magic Mirror.  MAKE SURE YOU GRAB THE MIRROR! (10)

Now, leave the room by the passage Yorick used.

Drive the Curser from the Land:

It's time to settle the score with Baba Yaga.  You'll come out at the 
Antwerp's spot.  Head up to Baba Yaga's hut.  Bonehead will let you in.  
Make the hut sit and head on in.  "hold mirror" and move over to the 
other side.  Baba Yaga will attempt to turn you into a frog again.  
Heh heh...  (50)

Anyway, she'll take off and you'll automatically head to Castle 
Spielburg for your reward ceremony. (25)

Congratulations!  You've proven yourself a hero!  If you've done 
everything, you should have 500 points!  Now, it's off to Shapeir in 
Quest for Glory II.

***********************************************************************

7. Thief Walkthrough

Points added will be shown in parentheses...

As a Thief, you'll be having a lot of fun robbing the people you're 
trying to help.  To this end, build up your Agility, Vitality, and all 
your cute little Thief skills as much as possible.  Especially Sneak 
everywhere.  Good sneaking skills can avoid fights, and prevent you 
from getting caught at inopportune times.

You'll start with a dagger, a Lock Pick, Leather Armor, five Rations, 
four gold, and 10 silver.

Town of Spielburg:

You'll stroll into town (1), take a short look around, and the sheriff 
will greet you.  Question him for a bit (1).  First good place to head 
is to the Hero's Tale Inn.  You can question Shameen there (1).  Have a 
sit down and Shema will show up.  You can ask her a few things.  Order 
some food (1).  Be sure to ask one or both of them about Abdulla, to 
know that he'll show up later that night.

Leave the Inn and head west to the end of Main Street.  Enter the Magic 
Shop (y'know, the place with the big eye above it).  Meet and question 
Zara (1).  This is probably the only time you'll see Zara, since you're 
not a practitioner.  Leave the Magic Shop.

Head to the Guild at the end of the screen.  Enter and read the 
Adventurer's Logbook (4).  Sign it, too (1).  Take a look at the Quest 
Board, too (6).  Wake up the Guildmaster, Wolfgang.  Question him about 
heroes, monsters, and the stuff on the Quest Board (1).  Question him 
about the "curse", too, and related topics...

Once you've finished with that, leave and go the other way on Main 
Street.  You'll eventually reach Market Street.  Speak to Hilde the 
Centaur (1).  If you wish, you can buy 50 apples (3).  At five silvers 
total, you should easily be able to afford it, but it could weigh you 
down considerably.  Also, head into the Dry Goods Store and speak to 
Kaspar the proprietor (1).  Buy some food if you wish.  Once you have 
enough money, you might want to buy some more daggers.  I suggest having 
at least five.

Head west to Tavern Street.  Head into the alley.  You'll find Sam 
begging on the street.  Give him a silver (1), and you'll be able to 
question him (1).  Ask him about night and the brigands.  Also, ask some 
other topics related to what he brings up.

Walk into the Tavern.  Note the odd thing next to the center stool.  
That's a note.  Pick up the note, and you'll learn some interesting 
things about two guys named "B" (2).  You can order some ale if you 
want, but don't drink three glasses of ale, or any Troll's Sweat (-5), 
or Dragon's Breath (too hot to handle)...

That's about all there is to do inside town during the daytime.  It's 
probably not Sunset yet, so you can go outside for a bit.  When Sunset 
rolls around, go to the inn, where you'll find Abdulla Doo lost in his 
own sorrows.  Have a seat.  You can order some food now if you haven't 
already.  Have a chat with Abdulla (5).  Ask him about the brigands and 
his attack.  Give him some money or a ration (2).  He'll tell you about 
his magic carpet and Shapeir, giving you some foreshadowing of your 
next quest.  Might want to deal with this one first.  Anyway, you 
probably should sleep at the Inn tonight (1).

Of course, I said that's all there was to do at the daytime.  After 
hours, of course, is a different story altogether, particularly for 
one of your talents.

The very first thing you'll want to do is wait until dark, and go into 
the alley at night.  You'll notice a flashing coin at the end.  Head 
towards it, and Sneak and Slink will jump out at you.  Click your Lockpick 
on one of them and he'll tell you to give the password to Crusher in the 
Tavern (3).  Go into the Tavern and tell him the password and he'll let you 
into the Thieves' Guild. (5)  Hooray... ^_^

Inside the Guild, the Chief will rant a bit about amateurs, and he'll 
tell you it'll cost 25 silvers to work in the town.  You should have 
the cash, so cough it up, and you'll get your Thieves' Guild License, 
Local 1313. (3)

Now, you'll want to build up your Lockpicking skill considerably before 
you try to rob any houses.  You have two potential marks: The Little 
Old Lady's house and the Sheriff's house.  Both have their elements of 
danger, so save often.

Little Old Lady's House:

Definitely the easier of the two.  Pick the lock on the door (5) and 
you'll enter a musty, smelly old house.  You'll note the cat wandering 
around.  Search the desk at the left wall (1), search the couch (1), 
open the purse on the couch (1), check the basket for the string of 
pearls (1), and take the silver candlesticks (1) on the coffee table.  
Also, feed or pet the kitty (3).  Whatever you do, don't act aggressive 
towards the cat, or go upstairs.  You can, however, play with the cage 
for a little giggle.

Sheriff's House:

More risk involved here.  Pick the lock on the door (5) and you'll 
enter a relatively well-kept place.  Take the candelabra off the roll-
top desk (1).  Take the silver in the desk.  You can open the music box 
on the table for another chuckle.  Take it afterwards (1).  Note the 
vase on the mantle.  You need to take or move the vase to get behind 
the painting, otherwise you'll break it, and that would make lots of 
unwanted noise.  Take the vase (1), and move the painting (1).  Open 
the safe (1), and take the bag of silver inside (1).

That's about all the true thievery you can do.  All the rest of it 
is more quest-related.

Go back to the Thieves' Guild.  Fence any stolen goods you have to 
Boris (3).  If you have enough, be sure to buy a Thieves' Tool Kit (3).  
Also, you can play Dag-Nab-It with the Chief for some extra cash.

The rules to Dag-Nab-It are simple.  Score more than the Chief by 
throwing well.  Adjust your angle with the left and right arrow keys and 
adjust your force with the up and down arrow keys.  Press Enter to 
throw.  Wager however much you want.  Wager at least one game at more 
than 25 silvers and win (5).

The next morning, head out to start your adventure proper.

Outside the Town:

You're now outside of town, whistling to yourself (1).  You can do this 
on whatever day you want, but be sure to always keep an eye on the time 
so you know when to bed down.

First order of business is to head down the road.  You'll eventually 
reach the end of the road, where a recent avalanche has blocked the 
pass.  Dang...  Head back along the road.  Walk back and forth between 
road screens and eventually you'll come upon a fox trapped near the 
road.  He'll ask you to free him.  Do so, and he'll give you a piece 
of advice and info (10).

Head back towards the gate.  There's a chance there'll be a guy 
outside the gate.  This is Bruno, the seller of info.  You can try 
asking him things, but he'll want money first.  Give him a silver, and 
he'll ask for another one.  Give him another and you can ask about 
Baba Yaga, the Castle, and goblins.  You don't really need info from 
him, but you get points for some preliminary questioning (2).  You can 
also use the Thief Sign on him and he'll give you REAL scoop on the 
Guild.

Now, head north to the Healer's Hut.  Knock on the door and question 
the Healer about her potions, components, and her ring (2).  Head on 
outside.  Note the nest in the tree.  Click the Hand on the tree and you'll 
shimmy up the bark if your skill is high enough.  If it isn't, just keep 
trying and it'll get there.  Once you are up high enough, click the Hand 
on the nest.  You'll find the ring (that was easy) (3).  Go back inside 
and give the ring to her.  She'll give you six golds and two Healing 
Potions for your reward (10).

Head west to the farm.  You'll find Heinrich the Centaur there.  
Question him about his name, his daughter, the farm, and the brigands 
(1).  Be absolutely sure to ask him about "leader" as well (3).

Go back east and north to the Castle Gates.  Question Karl the 
Gatekeeper (5), about the castle, the baron, Barnard, Elsa, Baba Yaga, 
and the curse.  Click the Hand on the gate and he'll open it for you.  
Enter the Castle (1).

Once inside the Courtyard, you may chance to see the Weapon Master.  
Question him (1) about fighting.  Unfortunately, you can't fight him, 
since you're not a fighter...

Also, you can head east to the Stables.  The Stable Hand will ask you 
to work.  Agree to it, and you'll do some good old fashioned raking (5).  
You'll get five silvers for your troubles.

That's about all you can do for now in the outskirts of town.  You'll 
do some more later, but this is all the preliminary stuff.

Spielburg Forest:

If you're feeling up to it, you can finally head out into the wild 
woods and take out one or two monsters.  Make sure your stamina and 
health are high enough before you do any fighting.

You probably won't be able to fight just anything right off the bat.  
No more than a goblin or two per day...

Check the Monsters section for how and when to fight all the monsters.  
Also, remember to get Claws from the Cheetaur, and the beard from a 
Troll.  Give them both to the Healer (2, 2).  Yeah, even though you 
don't get points for killing, you still have to fight the Cheetaur and 
Troll for the components.

Now's a good time to check the map.  Head up to Erana's Peace.  This is 
the best place to sleep, as it will fully restore you.  Also, you can 
chow on the fruit trees (2) once a day to fully satisfy you and save on 
rations.  Grab a bunch of flowers while you're here.  You can give them 
to the Healer (1).

Check the map and head towards the Mushroom Ring.  Grab some Magic 
Mushrooms to give to the Healer (1).

Other Points of Interest:

Head to the Snow Field.  You'll find Brauggi here.  He'll want a 
bargain of fruit.  If you hadn't done it yet, buy fifty apples from 
Hilde in town.  Give them to him, and you'll get the Glowing Gem (8).  
Neato.

Head to Spiegelsee in the south end.  Pause for some peaceful 
reflection (1).

Go to Flying Falls.  You'll see a door on the cliffside.  Try to climb 
up the wall.  Once you're high enough in Climbing skill, you'll shimmy 
right up.  Knock on the door (1).  Make sure you step to the right of 
the door so it doesn't knock you off the cliff.  You'll walk inside (5).  
Have a seat and chat it up with Henry (2).  Ask him about the cave, 
magic, the brigands, and all related topics he brings up.

Go to Mount Zauberburg.  Read the cute magic signs, then climb the 
mountain.  Once you reach the house, the Gargoyle above the house will 
ask you three questions.  Make sure you answer them correctly.  Here's 
the list of possible questions:

Name: Select your name
Quest: "Glory"
Fave Color: "Purple" (like the house)
Whose spell protects the town: "Erana"
Who do you seek: "Erasmus"
Baron's first name: "Stefan"
Thieves' Password: "I don't know" (No thieves allowed! ^_^)

Anyway, once inside (3), try not to fiddle with things.  Look all you 
want, just don't touch.  Head up to the tower.  Have a seat and you'll 
talk to Erasmus and Fenrus.  Ask them (1) about all the spellcasters in 
the valley.  Ask them about Erana, Baba Yaga, Zara, the Warlock, Henry, 
and anything magic you might want to know about.  Also, ask him about 
curse and countercurse.  Try to Walk once you're done and he'll send you to 
the bottom of the mountain.

At some point in your adventure, preferably after you built up your 
skills a bit, and have a decent cash flow, go to the Healer and 
purchase Undead Unguent for 100 silvers.  Head to Baba Yaga's Hut on 
the map.  Bonehead (the skull at the gates) will turn you away, unless 
you agree to deal with him.  Ask about the deal then say "yes" (2).  He'll 
want a glowing gem for his eyes.  Also, ask him about the hut and the 
rhyme (Hut of brown, now sit down).  If you have the Glowing Gem from 
the Snow Field, give it to Bonehead, and he'll lower the gate (10).  
Say the rhyme and the house will squat (7).  Head on in (2).  Baba 
Yaga doesn't take too kindly to visitors, as you'll soon see.  When 
she asks you your name, tell her, then agree to help, and agree to the 
task she gives you, and she'll turn you loose.  Your mission now is to 
go to the graveyard and get some Mandrake, and you have to pull it at 
midnight (when it says "Middle of the Night" on the time thing).  
Fight a bit and rest until it says "You are getting tired."  At that 
time, use the Undead Unguent (2) and head to the graveyard.  You'll see 
the ghosts playin' around.  Walk over to the little red plant growing 
out the grave and take it (6).  Once you snag it, run on back to Baba 
Yaga's and she'll take it from you (3), and you'll be off the hook.

Comes a Hero from the East:

Now that you've messed around a bit, it's time to do what you came here 
to do.  To start that, head to the Dryad's Tree in the southwest corner 
of the forest.  You'll follow a white stag in there.  Once you enter 
the area with a tree, the Dryad will pop out of her tree and ask if 
you're a friend of the forest.  Say "yes" (1) and she'll ask you to 
get a seed from the Spore Spitting Spirea in the north.

Find the Spore Spitting Spirea area on the map (SSS).  Once you get 
there, climb up one of the cliff walls and click the Hand over the 
plant.  Soon enough, you'll have the seed (7).  Head back to the Dryad's 
Tree.  Say "yes" and you'll give her the seed (7).  She'll give you the 
recipe for a Dispel Potion:

Flowers from Erana's Peace
Green Fur
Fairy Dust
Magic Acorn
Flying Water

Once she returns to her tree, she'll drop a Magic Acorn from her 
branches.  Grab it (1).

Odds are you'll already have the Flowers turned in.

Green Fur: Head towards the Meep's Peep (MP on the map).  Note the cute 
little meeps popping out of their holes.  Click the Mouth on a Meep when one's 
popped up.  The Green Meep will jump out and talk to you.  Ask him 
about meeps, rocks, and fur (1).  Ask about green fur, and he'll give 
you some (5).

Flying Water: If you have an Empty Flask, go to Flying Falls.  Get some 
water from the falls (3).

Fairy Dust: Wait until night and go to the Mushroom Ring.  You'll see 
the cute little fairies dancing around.  They'll tell you to dance.  So 
agree to dance (3).  After you finish, ask them (1) about things (fairies, 
dryad, dust).  Once you ask them about dust, they'll give you some (8).

Now that you have all five ingredients, go to the Healer's Hut.  Give 
her the Acorn (5), Green Fur (2), Fairy Dust (2), Flying Water (2), and 
the Flowers if you haven't already (1, if you haven't already).  She'll 
get to work on the Potion.  Leave and come back, and she'll give it 
to you (7).

Free the Man from in the Beast:

Okay, you should be all set to tackle some real quests, now.  You'll 
probably want your important skills at about 60 (Agility, Vitality, 
Weapon Use, Stealth, Lockpicking) or more.

You'll probably want some Healing and Vigor Potions for this.  Head to 
the Cave (C on the map) and you'll find an Ogre.  Kick his butt if you 
want to.  You may be able to run past him if you're lucky.  If you 
decide to kill him, and you succeed, Use your Lockpick or Toolkit on his 
chest, and if your Lockpicking skill is high enough, you'll spring it open 
and get 1 gold and 43 silvers.

Heal up, and enter the cave.  You'll notice that rather nasty-looking 
bear chained to the floor by a manacle.  Don't fight him.  Give him a 
ration instead (or an apple or vegetable) (5) and you'll be able to 
walk past him.

Enter this new section of the cave (2) and you'll see a Kobold sitting 
with a key around his neck.  Don't even bother messing with him.  Just 
sneak up and lift the key right off him (7).  Walk towards the bottom of 
the cave.  You'll bump into a chest.  Pick the lock on the chest and 
pray your skill is high enough.  Get it open and take the 6 golds and 
10 silvers left behind (5).

Now, return to the cave with the bear and use the Brass Key on the manacle.  
The bear will turn into (Tah dah!) the Baronet, Barnard von Spielburg! (25) 
He'll act all snooty, and teleport back to the castle with his amulet.

Go to the castle.  Karl will let you in.  Walk up to the keep and 
they'll let you in (10).  The Baron will thank you himself for helping 
his son.  Ask him (3) about himself, his family, the brigands (leader 
and warlock), and the prophecy.  Leave and he'll ask you to stay the 
night and will give you the 50 gold reward.

Bring the Child from the Band:

Now it's time to take care of the Brigands.  But how?  Well, you could 
go to the Ambush down south, jump over the log, and fight your way in, 
but you won't get full credit...

Instead, go to town.  Go to the Tavern and you'll find a note under 
the stool (2, if you didn't get the first one).  Archery range at noon, 
eh?  Wait until the time says "midday" and head towards the Archery 
Range from the side.  You'll see Bruno and Brutus (a brigand) discussing 
matters.  You'll learn about a secret entrance to the Fortress and the 
"secret word" (Hiden Goseke).  Bruno will take off (12).  Now, you need 
to get the key to that secret door.  If you have daggers, you can 
throw them at him to kill him, or you can go south and go back north 
right away (before Bruno spots you down there).  Once you get back 
north, you'll fight him.  Once he's dead, search him to get the key.  
Leave the area and go south to where "the bouncer" hops around.  This 
is the Antwerp.  You can run around him so he doesn't bop you.  Once 
you get to the door, unlock it with the key, open it (10), and click the 
Mouth on the door to say "Hiden Goseke" (5).  This will cause Fred the 
Troll to retreat to the back of the cave.

Enter the cave (2).  The passage leads down to the bottom of the screen, 
and out by a southeast exit.

You'll come upon the Fortress Gate now.  You'll see a minotaur, Toro, 
guarding the area.  Get sneaking and sneak past that bush.  Toro doesn't 
have good peripheral vision, so moving silently is good enough.  Climb 
over the gate and enter the fortress. (8)

Now, you'll be in the courtyard of the fortress.  Directly in front of 
you will be two blockades, and a rug in between them.  You can also go 
to the left or the right of the blockades.  Don't step on the rug, or 
go to the right (without, at least, clicking the Eye on the tripline 
stretched there).  Go to the left to be safe.  Now, you're in front of a 
pit.  There are two bridges.  One has a sign that says "Cross Here".  Cross 
on the bridge on the right (the one with the sign).  Now, take a close look 
at the last area.  Note the grayish-black line.  That's a tripline.  
Click the Eye on it, and you can walk across, after which you'll 
automatically enter the next room. (8)

Now, you're in the fortress' main hall/mess hall.  Things will move 
really fast in here, so read carefully.  Do anything wrong, and you 
pretty much die, so save as you enter here.  Just as soon as you enter 
the room, click the Hand on the door behind you.  Walk up to the door on 
the upper right and the chair near it.  A few brigands will walk up behind 
you, note the closed door and leave.  As soon as the brigands start to 
leave, not before they leave, click the Hand on the chair.  Walk towards 
the nearby candelabra.  Now, three brigands (who look awfully familiar, 
nyuk nyuk) will enter the room and walk towards you from behind the table.  
As soon as the first one walks behind the table, click the Hand on the 
nearby candelabra.  Oh, a wise guy, eh?  Now, walk in front of the table, 
quickly, and after the last one has passed the chair on the left, click the 
Hand on the table, and then on the rope above you.  The rest will soon 
be history.  Walk through the far door. (8)

This is an interesting room.  Here's the top-view layout:

                         7       5   
                        6|   ME  |                                 
                         }   }   |2                                
                       4 +---+---+                                 
                             }   |3                                
                        1----+-+-}                                 
                               |                                   
                          +----+                                   
                          |                                        
                          E                                      

You'll enter at point E.  Note that any "}" in the area is a trap door.  
If you walk over a trap door, or off any platform, you'll tumble out 
door 5 and keep rolling.  To stop, type "stop", and you'll skid to a 
stop.

First things first.  Talk to ME.  This is the Brigand Warlock.  If 
you've been paying attention at all, you'd guess that this is Yorick, 
the Jester.  Ask him (2) about Elsa or Yorick (8).  Unfortunately, even 
with all that talking, he'll interfere with the process, tossing books, 
apple cores, etc. at you.  If, by chance, you have magic, try to cast a 
spell, and he'll take off.

Anyway, walk over to door 1 and you'll come out the doggie door at 2.  
Enter door 3 and you'll come up at door 4 which is above the floor.  
Pull the chain and you'll open 5.  Head back and go through 5.  You'll 
come out at 6.  Open door 7 and get out of the way before it flattens 
you.  Now, walk through door 7 and into the final room. (12)

NOTE: On the VGA version, it's VERY tough to make the run over to the 
door.  Turn up the Speed on the Control Panel all the way, then quickly 
pull the rope, walk back through the opening, and into the door.  It's 
really tough, but possible...

Finally, you reach the Brigand Leader's room.  She'll hop over her desk 
to challenge you.  If you've figured anything out at all in this game, 
you'll know to throw the Dispel Potion at her.  Will our mystery 
guest enter and sign in please!  It's Elsa von Spielburg! (35)

Elsa and Yorick will take off and you'll be left in the room.  The 
brigands are trying to bash the door down.  Quick, grab the two Healing 
Potions and the Magic Mirror.  MAKE SURE YOU GRAB THE MIRROR! (10)

Now, leave the room by the passage Yorick used.

Drive the Curser from the Land:

It's time to settle the score with Baba Yaga.  You'll come out at the 
Antwerp's spot.  Head up to Baba Yaga's hut.  Bonehead will let you in.  
Make the hut sit and head on in.  "hold mirror" and move over to the 
other side.  Baba Yaga will attempt to turn you into a frog again.  
Heh heh...  (50)

Anyway, she'll take off and you'll automatically head to Castle 
Spielburg for your reward ceremony. (25)

Congratulations!  You've proven yourself a hero!  If you've done 
everything, you should have 500 points!  Now, it's off to Shapeir in 
Quest for Glory II.

8. The Whole Story and Epilogue

Ten years ago, Baba Yaga entered Spielburg Valley.  Stefan von 
Spielburg, realizing the threat she stood, ordered her to leave.  She 
responded by cursing the graveyard, so that the dead walk at night.

Afterwards, the Baron sent his contingent of guards to eliminate her, or 
at least force her to leave.  It would not be nearly as simple as 
that.  She then cursed the Baron himself, declaring that he would lose 
all he treasures.  His guard force was severly weakened from the 
attack.

Soon afterwards, a great flying beast (most probably the hut itself) 
swooped over the castle wall and stole away the eight year old Elsa 
von Spielburg.  Baba Yaga enchanted Elsa to forget her name and to 
believe she was a brigand's child.  She gave her to the brigands, who 
raised her as one of their own.

Two years afterwards, Yorick, the Jester, who swore he'd never give up 
looking for her, found her in her state.  He posed as the Warlock for 
the Brigands, with his knowledge of sleight of hand.

Over the next six years, Elsa would distinguish herself from the rest 
of the brigands with her skill in swordsmanship and thievery.  At the 
end of those six years, she took over the band as their leader.  For 
the next two years, the brigands would become a very formidable force, 
and would often rob travellers.

Also, five years ago, the Baronet, Barnard von Spielburg, went hunting 
one day.  He found the Kobold Cave.  The Kobold ordered him to leave, 
but he refused, and so the Kobold changed him into a bear.

So, at present day, the valley is in a sorry state.  Perfect time for 
a hero to show up.

And so he does, and saves the valley as only a hero can.

Afterwards, the Hero joined Abdulla Doo and the Kattas and took flight 
with Abdulla's carpet to Shapeir.  Baba Yaga flew off towards the land 
of Mordavia.  The Hero hasn't seen the last of her.  With the hero's 
departure, someone needed to clean out the brigands, and Elsa took it 
upon herself.  She organized the guards and drove the band out of the 
valley.  For her actions, she was also given the title "Hero of 
Spielburg".

Barnard didn't approve of his little sister's hero status.  Their father 
retired, and he assumed the Barony.  Elsa, disgusted with her brother's 
means of running the valley, left Spielburg, and she took Toro the 
Minotaur with her.  They'll show up later in the series.

Also, Bruno's plans of grabbing the brigand's treasure were ruined with 
the hero's intervention.  The Thieves' Guild was cleaned out, but he 
managed to escape.  He's since gone to ground, and is plotting his 
revenge, not to mention looking for a new job...

D. Conversation Topics

There really is no need for this topic in the VGA version FAQ.  Every 
person has one conversation "tree" that you can use to question them.  By 
"tree", I mean that you can ask a person a question and different ones will 
pop up...

---

E. Debug Mode

Ahh!  Sorry!  No debug mode in the VGA version!  If you really wanna know 
about it, check the EGA version FAQ.

This FAQ was made 100% by me, Scott "CyricZ" Zdankiewicz.  You may not 
take it in whole or in part and claim it as your own. You may not alter 
it in any way, even if you ask me first, and that includes putting it 
in HTML format.  Please don’t post this on your site unless you have 
express consent by me.  I’ve put a lot of time into this.  Give me some 
credit...

B. E-mail Guidelines

If you wish to e-mail me, be sure to follow these guidelines...

- Make ABSOLUTELY sure I haven't already answered your question in the 
guide.
- Make sure it has something to do with Quest for Glory for God's 
sake.  I don't want spam, chain letters, offers for friendship.  
Compliment me on the FAQ all you want, though...
- Make sure you say Quest for Glory at one point in your e-mail.  I have 
more than one FAQ, and asking a generic question such as "How do I 
save?" doesn't tell me much.
- Spell correctly and use proper grammar, please.  If I can't understand 
your e-mail, it'll go to the junk pile...

C. Credits

CJayC and Al Amaloo for having this on their sites.

Sierra, particularly Lori Ann and Corey Cole, for making such an 
incredible series.

D. Version Updates

Version 1.0 - 7/7/01 - Well, there you have it.  I don't really intend 
to do another version, unless something really weird comes up.  By the way, 
it's about bloody time that CJayC made a different game heading for this 
version.

---

E. The Final Word

So, there's the first game in this series.  It's not the most cohesive 
game, as there are many tasks that can be done in any order, but it's 
very good for the first effort of the Coles.

Be sure to check out my other guides for the Quest for Glory games, 
too!  I love this series!  Did I mention that?
