1 4 0 1 99 Your hunger has been totally satisfied. You don't need another piece of fruit. 1 4 0 2 99 The fruit is very soft and juicy. It would be impossible to keep in your pack. 2 1 1 1 99 The stone has been moved. 2 1 2 1 99 The large stone appears to be ancient and deliberately placed. Marks carved into the stone almost look like writing. 2 1 3 1 99 In a hole, hidden beneath the ancient stone, someone has placed a scroll. 2 1 3 2 99 You took the scroll. 2 1 4 1 99 The stone has the words "Erana's Peace" carved upon the top. There are some runes carved along the side. 2 1 5 1 99 It reads: "If thy Will is Magic, so shall I share. Open this Stone and claim what is there." 2 4 1 1 99 The hole that was beneath the stone is empty. 2 4 2 1 99 No amount of physical effort will be able to move this stone. 3 0 6 1 99 The grasses in the meadow are covered over with flowers. 3 0 7 1 99 All kinds of colorful and fragrant flowers and grasses cover the meadow. 3 0 8 1 99 The meadow is an oasis at the edge of the snowline. The rocky hillside looks very steep and slippery. 3 4 10 1 99 You have all the flowers you need. 3 4 11 1 99 As you pick a variety of the sweet-smelling flowers, they seem to glow in your hands. You put them safely away. 3 4 12 1 99 You take another handful of the lovely, fragrant flowers. 3 50 0 1 99 This entire area is magical. In particular, the fruit on the tree radiates magic, and you sense that a spell has been placed on the large stone. All of the magic has a warm, nurturing feel to it. 3 80 9 1 99 The very air in this meadow radiates feelings of calmness and peace. You wouldn't be able to tell if the spell worked here. 3 81 9 1 99 You can't imagine hurting anything in this meadow. 4 1 0 1 99 The sky is clear. 4 1 13 1 99 The sun feels warm. 4 1 14 1 99 The stars shine. 5 1 15 1 99 To the north, the high, snowy peaks of the Dragon Smoke mountains are clearly visible. 5 1 16 1 99 You are at the snowline. All around you, except for the forest, the rocks and mountains glisten with slippery snow. 5 4 0 1 99 The rock faces are slippery with melted snow. 6 0 0 1 99 You sleep comfortably among the fragrant flowers. 6 0 0 2 99 The sweet, juicy fruit of the tree is amazingly satisfying and refreshing. 6 0 0 3 99 The scroll vanishes even as you read the magical runes upon it. You now have the knowledge to cast a "Calm" spell. 6 0 17 1 99 The meadow lies covered with a blanket of flowers, unusual for this early in the spring. It is warm, even though surrounded by the late snows of winter. 6 0 17 2 99 A large, carved stone lies flat on the ground. You feel as though someone gentle was watching over you. You feel that you are safe here. 6 0 17 3 99 The air has the fresh, clean scent of the mountains, accompanied by numerous perfume-like fragrances. 6 50 0 1 99 There is an aura of magic throughout this meadow. It seems to be benevolent and restorative. 6 51 0 1 99 There is no further purpose in casting the Open spell. 6 52 0 1 99 You just can't sleep during the daytime. 7 1 0 1 99 The tree's blossoms are soft, green and fragrant. 7 1 13 1 99 The fruit sparkles in the sunlight, yet it appears soft and fuzzy. 7 1 14 1 99 The fruit glows and shimmers in the moonlight. It produces a fragrance like a sun-ripened strawberry. 8 1 0 1 99 The small tree is most amazing. It bears blossoms and fruit at the same time, and the fruit on its boughs seems to shyly appear and disappear, shimmering. 8 4 0 1 99 There is no need to climb the little tree.

1 4 0 1 99 You'd better not. The bear isn't wearing a flea collar (just a locked chain). 1 36 0 1 99 The bear seems to find your flowers tasty, but not very filling. 1 26 0 1 99 The Bear won't let you near the lock. 1 17 0 1 99 Try as you might, you can't pick the lock. It must be magical. 1 1 1 1 99 Although looking somewhat scorched, the bear is still very dangerous. 1 1 2 1 99 Stunned, the bear is temporarily frozen. 1 1 3 1 99 On one side of this cavern is a creature which looks like a large bear. There is something attached to his leg. 1 1 4 1 99 The bear appears docile for the time being. 1 1 5 1 99 The bear looks menacing and angry. There is a locked chain attached to its leg. 1 11 6 1 99 You have made this bear very happy; it would be wise to take advantage of his current mood. 1 57 7 1 99 You know that bears can't talk! 1 57 8 1 99 Hi there! I represent Ditto Realty. We have some LOVELY properties that are PROVEN bargains. We know that's true, because we've sold them so many times. 2 1 9 1 99 Beyond the bear, the cave seems to continue. The bear blocks the way. 2 1 10 1 99 An eerie luminescence emanates from a chamber deeper within the cave. 3 0 5 1 99 A very large bear rears up as you approach. It looks hungry and dangerous. 3 0 11 1 99 As your eyes adjust from sunlight to darkness, you examine the interior of this eerie cavern. You sense something moving off to your right. 3 0 12 1 99 The Kobold's key disappears as you turn it in the lock. 3 50 9 1 99 There is no magic in the cave. 3 50 10 1 99 There is an aura of magic throughout the cavern. It seems to center on the bear 3 1 0 1 99 Once your eyes get adjusted to the dark, there's still nothing to see in here. 4 4 0 1 99 What could you possibly do with a stalagmite... or is it a stalactite? 4 1 0 1 99 The stalagmites grow slowly... or are they stalactites? 5 4 0 1 99 What could you possibly do with a stalactite... or is it a stalagmite? 5 1 0 1 99 The stalactites grow slowly... or are they stalagmites?

1 0 0 1 99 The Kobold doesn't look very calm. In fact, it looks totally unaffected by your spell. 2 0 0 1 99 You just bumped into something on the floor. It feels like a large wooden chest, but you don't see anything there. 2 4 1 1 99 You will have to open it first. The chest seems to be locked. 2 4 2 1 99 You've already taken the treasure. 2 4 3 1 99 You are too far away to get the Kobold's treasure. 2 26 0 1 99 The key doesn't fit in the chest. It must be for a different lock. 2 17 4 1 99 You have no skill at picking locks. 2 17 1 1 99 You've already unlocked the chest. 2 17 5 1 99 You don't see any locks here. 2 17 3 1 99 You're not close enough. 2 1 6 1 99 You will have to open the chest first. It seems to be locked. 2 1 1 1 99 The chest is now empty. Funny thing, that. 2 1 7 1 99 There is no sign of any other treasure in the cavern. 2 1 5 1 99 You don't *see* any treasure here. 2 1 2 1 99 The chest is now empty. Funny thing, that. 2 1 8 1 99 Where the chest was, you see numerous pieces of gold and silver. 3 0 7 1 99 You see the outline of a chest glowing in the south end of the cavern. 3 0 7 2 99 You can detect a faint glimmering of magic from the shattered remains of the chest. 3 0 9 1 99 A strong magical aura radiates from the Kobold's key. 3 0 10 1 99 There no longer seem to be any magical effects or spells active in this part of the cavern. 4 0 0 1 99 Uh oh, you've woken the Kobold. 4 0 0 2 99 You now have the Kobold's key. Nice work! 5 4 0 1 99 The fungus is slimy and firmly attached to the cave walls. You'd better leave it alone. 5 1 0 1 99 Phosphorescent fungi illuminate the cavern with an unearthly glow. 6 0 0 1 99 You retrieve the dropped key. 6 1 0 1 99 You see a large, brass key lying on the ground. A faint glow emanates from the key. 7 0 0 1 99 Your foot slips on the wet cavern floor and makes a scuffing noise. 7 16 11 1 99 There are no monsters here to attack. 7 16 12 1 99 That's what you're doing. Keep going! 7 4 13 1 99 Uh oh. You weren't stealthy enough. You have awoken the Kobold. 7 4 14 1 99 You can't reach the key from here. 7 4 15 1 99 The Kobold won't let you near his key. 7 4 11 1 99 You take the Kobold's glowing key. 7 4 16 1 99 VERY carefully, you remove the key from around the Kobold's neck. 7 1 0 1 99 The strange creature is dressed in ragged clothes. It has large, pale eyes. It must have spent its entire life in these caves! 7 1 17 1 99 A large, brass key hangs from a thong around the creature's neck. 7 12 11 1 99 There are no monsters here to attack. 7 12 12 1 99 That's what you're doing. Keep going! 7 57 0 1 99 The Kobold seems more interested in frying you with Ball Lightning than in talking to you. 8 0 7 1 99 The invisible lid of the invisible chest lifts. A ripple of magical heat in the air informs you of a trap narrowly avoided by your skillful use of the Open spell. 8 0 7 2 99 You open the chest, remove its contents, and close it again. You are now 10 gold and 60 silver pieces richer. 9 0 18 1 99 You don't have time for that. 9 0 19 1 99 You pry at the sealed lid of the chest, and... 9 0 20 1 99 This section of cave has an eerie quality. You see a kobold resting on a ledge across from you. 9 0 3 1 99 Wow! The chest must have been booby-trapped. You can really feel the damage from the blast. 9 0 21 1 99 You hear a very satisfying "Snick" as your pick catches the lock just right. 9 0 21 2 99 Then you sense powerful magics dissipating around the lock, and your hands shake as you realize you have narrowly avoided some sort of Magical Doom. 9 0 22 1 99 Your fingers shift slightly, and you feel an odd prickling sensation coming from the lock. You have a bad feeling about this. 9 0 23 1 99 You hack and pry at the chest, but you are not strong enough to force its lid. 9 0 24 1 99 The Kobold casts a spell with which you are not familiar. 9 0 25 1 99 You add ten gold and sixty silver coins to your money pouch. 9 0 26 1 99 You go! You no stay here! 9 82 0 1 99 You don't need to cast Fetch -- everything here is in easy reach. 9 1 0 1 99 This part of the cavern is spacious and multi-leveled. Phosphorescent fungus illuminates the cavern with an unearthly glow. 9 1 0 2 99 On a rocky platform above the cave floor is a Kobold, one of the race of ugly, miserly creatures known for their skill in Magic. 9 51 0 1 99 There's nothing to open here. 9 77 0 1 99 There are no passive spells to trigger here. 9 52 0 1 99 You'd better not. This cave is not recommended by the Michelin Guide. 10 1 0 1 99 The stalactites look much like the stalagmites, except that they go the other way. 11 1 0 1 99 A faint glimmer of sunlight barely illuminates the cave entrance. 12 1 0 1 99 The Kobold eats its meals on this plain stone table. 13 4 27 1 99 No time for that now! 13 4 28 1 99 You pick up the Kobold's mushrooms and put them in your pack. 13 1 0 1 99 Some sort of food (mushrooms?) sits in a pile on the stone table. It looks almost edible... to a Kobold.

1 1 0 1 99 To the south and east is the forest from which you came. To the north and west are steep cliffs.

Trying to catch Flying Water? 3 4 13 1 99 You can't catch the seed from down on the ground. 3 16 0 1 99 Perhaps it would be better to find something else to throw. 3 20 4 1 99 You might have tried to throw a rock at the seed, but it's too late now. 3 20 15 1 99 Not now! 3 20 16 1 99 You get in position for a good throw. 3 20 17 1 99 You need a good rock to throw. 4 1 0 1 99 The meadow clearing in which you stand is grassy and littered with blown pine needles and small mossy rocks. 4 4 0 1 99 Wait a second! 5 1 0 1 99 The leaves look tough and fibrous. 6 1 0 1 99 The leaves look tough and fibrous. 7 1 0 1 99 The leaves look tough and fibrous. 8 1 0 1 99 The leaves look tough and fibrous. 9 0 0 1 99 You've already made a mess of that flower. 9 0 0 2 99 There's not much point in that, now that you've already done what you came here to do. 9 0 0 3 99 This looks like a good place to you. 9 0 0 4 99 You valiantly scrabble against the cliff wall, but it looks like your climbing skill could stand some improvement. 9 0 0 5 99 Perhaps there is some other way to get to your objective. 9 0 0 6 99 You look for an appropriate place to climb. 9 0 0 7 99 You pick up a few small rocks. 9 0 0 9 99 Unless you just took a kangaroo potion, that plant is too far up the cliff to jump for. 9 0 0 10 99 You see the seed floating above the shattered remains of the plant. 9 0 0 11 99 You take the seed. 9 0 4 1 99 You don't need a rock for anything. 9 0 14 1 99 Not now! 9 0 18 1 99 You take the seed. 9 0 19 1 99 It looks difficult. You look around for a good place to climb. 9 0 20 1 99 You put the seed into your pack and climb down. 9 0 21 1 99 You remain unconscious on the ground for an indeterminate amount of time. As you finally revive, you realize that you've caused yourself a fair amount of damage. 9 0 22 1 99 Ohhhhhhh! 9 0 23 1 99 You place the seed into your pack. 9 0 24 1 99 You lose concentration, and the spell fades. You will have to practice some more. 9 4 25 1 99 You pick up a few small rocks. 9 51 8 1 99 Your skill with the Open spell is not great enough to affect the plants. 9 51 29 1 99 Not now! 9 51 30 1 99 You lose your concentration. 9 81 5 1 99 There is no need to be so destructive. 9 81 6 1 99 That spell would damage the seed. You don't want to do that. 9 82 26 1 99 You get into a good position. 9 82 27 1 99 You might have tried to cast a spell at the seed, but it's too late now. 9 82 28 1 99 You lose your concentration. 10 1 0 1 99 You can see pines, cedars, birches and other trees frequently associated with mountain forests.

YOU AGAIN! 2 0 5 1 23 "AND YOU WANT TO BE A HERO?!" 2 0 6 1 23 "The Wizard is expecting you in his tower. Go directly up the stairs." 2 0 7 2 23 "Call me unreliable." 2 0 7 3 23 "You sold my car. Prepare to fly." 2 0 7 4 23 "Pleased to meet you, So. Now, go!" 2 0 7 5 23 "Right, and I am the Princess Rubella." 2 0 7 6 23 "You're a better man than I am, which isn't hard, seeing as I'm a Gargoyle." 2 0 7 7 23 "Lost some weight, Elvis?" 2 0 7 8 23 "Who do you think I am -- Dorothy?" 2 0 7 9 23 "So I won't ask you." 2 0 8 1 23 "WHAT IS YOUR NAME?" 2 0 8 2 99 Call me Ishmael. 2 0 8 3 99 I am Inigo Montalban. 2 0 8 4 99 I'm so confused. 2 0 8 5 99 I am King Graham Cracker. 2 0 8 6 99 Gunga Din. 2 0 8 7 99 Elvis's ghost. 2 0 8 8 99 I am Oz, the great and terrible. 2 0 8 9 99 Pudentame. Ask me again and I'll tell you the same. 2 0 8 10 99 Unknown Hero 2 0 9 1 23 "STAND FAST!" 2 0 10 4 23 "Have YOU got the wrong game, then." 2 0 10 5 23 "Sorry, that Jones guy found it already." 2 0 10 6 23 "Boy, did you come to the wrong place." 2 0 10 7 23 "Watch out for yellow snow, then." 2 0 10 8 23 "... To die the inevitable death?" 2 0 10 9 23 "Don't you mean drop down?" 2 0 11 1 23 "HE WHO WOULD THE WIZARD SEE FIRST MUST ANSWER QUESTIONS THREE:" 2 0 11 2 23 "WHAT IS YOUR QUEST?" 2 0 12 1 99 I want Glory. 2 0 12 2 99 I want to be a Hero. 2 0 12 3 99 I want to be a Wizard. 2 0 12 4 99 I want to be a Pirate. 2 0 12 5 99 I seek the Holy Grail. 2 0 12 6 99 I want to be rich and handsome. 2 0 12 7 99 I want to boldly go where no one has gone before. 2 0 12 8 99 To dream, the impossible dream; to fight, the unbeatable foe... 2 0 12 9 99 I just happened to be in the neighborhood and thought I'd drop by. 2 0 13 1 23 "HERE COME YOUR QUESTIONS:" 2 0 14 1 23 "WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR?" 2 0 14 2 99 Purple 2 0 14 3 99 Chocolate 2 0 14 4 99 Dodger Blue 2 0 14 5 99 Red or black 2 0 14 6 99 Yellow 2 0 14 7 23 "Hey! His eyes DO work! Go on in." 2 0 14 8 23 "You may be color blind, but you got good taste. Come on in. " 2 0 14 9 23 "My heart bleeds for you." 2 0 14 10 23 "I've got to hand it to you; you're quite a card. But Erasmus doesn't like visitors who aren't playing with a full deck." 2 0 14 11 23 "Sorry Charlie, Erasmus wants people with good taste." 2 0 15 1 23 "WHO DO YOU SEEK HERE?" 2 0 15 2 99 Erasmus 2 0 15 3 99 Fenrus 2 0 15 4 99 The Wizard of Oz 2 0 15 5 99 Dr. Livingstone, I presume. 2 0 15 6 99 Amelia Earhart 2 0 15 7 23 "I sure hope you got his pizza order right this time!" 2 0 15 8 23 "That was a rather ratty response." 2 0 15 9 23 "Somehow, I don't think you're in Kansas anymore." 2 0 15 10 23 "A preposterous presumption upon your part." 2 0 15 11 23 "She'll be here a couple of centuries from now. Come back then." 2 0 16 1 23 "WHAT IS THE THIEVES' PASSWORD?" 2 0 16 2 23 I don't know 2 0 16 3 23 Swordfish 2 0 16 4 23 Schwertfisch 2 0 16 5 23 Olley olley oxen free 2 0 16 6 23 Halibut 2 0 16 7 23 "At least, if you're a thief, you're ashamed enough to lie about it. Come on in." 2 0 16 8 23 "And 'X' Marx the spot." 2 0 16 9 23 "That's RIGHT! But that's ALSO WRONG!!!" 2 0 16 10 23 "Okay. I'll hide you, and you can seek me out!" 2 0 16 11 23 "So you answered just for the halibut? Porpoisefully giving me fish puns, are you? That gives me a whale of a haddock, and that's the trout, so help me cod. Well, school's out for today, and you've smelt better too!" 2 0 17 1 23 "WHAT IS THE FIRST NAME OF THE GUY WHO RULES THIS VALLEY?" 2 0 17 2 99 Stefan 2 0 17 3 99 Baron 2 0 17 4 99 Stephan 2 0 17 5 99 Erasmus 2 0 17 6 99 I don't know. 2 0 17 7 23 "Well, Erasmus always appreciates good SPELLing." 2 0 17 8 23 "Right. And Smokey's middle name is 'the'." 2 0 17 9 23 "Naw, you have him confused with the King." 2 0 17 10 23 "Ha! The boss has better things to do than rule this little burg." 2 0 17 11 23 "You haven't done your homework, have you?" 2 0 18 1 23 "WHO PUT THE AURA AROUND THE TOWN?" 2 0 18 2 99 Erana 2 0 18 3 99 Zara 2 0 18 4 99 Fenrus 2 0 18 5 99 I don't know. 2 0 18 6 99 Stefan 2 0 18 7 23 "And a right PEACEful place she made it. Go on in." 2 0 18 8 23 "Hah! Her high and mightiness barely condescends to keep a shop in town, let alone protect it." 2 0 18 9 23 "That's a rather ratty response." 2 0 18 10 23 "Ignorance of the Aura is no excuse." 2 0 18 11 23 "Do you always do this well with multiple choice questions?" 2 0 19 1 23 "WHAT IS THE MEAN AIR SPEED OF AN UNLADEN SWALLOW?" 2 0 19 2 99 African or European? 2 0 19 3 99 I don't know. 2 0 19 4 99 9.8 meters per second squared. 2 0 19 5 23 35 miles per hour. 2 0 19 6 99 One hundred and eighty-six thousand miles per second. 2 0 19 7 23 "Humm, I have no idea. Have to ask the boss sometime. Oh, well, you win." 2 0 19 8 23 "Neither do I. Go on in." 2 0 19 9 23 "Only when you tie its wings and drop it." 2 0 19 10 23 "I said 'swallow', not sparrow." 2 0 19 11 23 "It's not just a good idea, it's the law, eh?" 2 0 20 1 23 "WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE, THE UNIVERSE, AND EVERYTHING?" 2 0 20 2 99 42 2 0 20 3 99 I don't know. 2 0 20 4 99 Life is but a dream. 2 0 20 5 99 Life is just a bowl of cherries. 2 0 20 6 99 Know what to kiss, and when. 2 0 20 7 23 "So you put some Deep Thought into the question, eh?" 2 0 20 8 23 "At least you're honest. (Stupid... but honest.)" 2 0 20 9 23 "You're really dreaming if you think I accept that answer." 2 0 20 10 23 "Well, you're sure one of the pits." 2 0 20 11 23 "You got 'what' right, but flunked 'when'." 2 0 21 1 23 "CAN YOU HEAR ME? YOU HAVE THREE QUESTIONS." 2 0 22 1 23 "You blew it, bub." 2 0 22 2 23 "Sayonara, Sucker." 2 0 22 3 23 "Wrong way, Jose!" 2 0 22 4 23 "Hasta la vista, baby." 2 0 22 5 23 "Have a nice trip, see you in the fall!" 2 0 22 6 23 "Gotcha!" 2 0 22 7 23 "Scat, Brat." 2 0 23 1 23 "YOU DON'T GIVE UP EASILY, DO YOU?" 2 0 24 1 23 "THE WIZARD WILL SEE YOU NOW." 2 1 0 1 99 The stone creature looks like it's bored. Wouldn't you be? 3 0 5 1 99 Your body can't take too much more of this kind of mountaineering. At this point, you envy the gargoyle his job. 3 0 25 1 99 You feel as though you have just scaled the Matterhorn in full armor. What a climb! You can see all of Spielburg valley from here. 3 0 25 2 99 After you finally catch your breath, you see that you have reached the rather eccentric-looking house that you saw from below. 3 0 25 3 99 There is an ugly gargoyle above the entrance. 3 0 26 1 99 This climb seems longer every time. But you made it. 3 0 26 2 99 You begin to think being eaten by a monster would be more fun than climbing this mountain. 3 0 26 3 99 Every muscle in your body is letting you know that this is great exercise. 3 0 26 4 99 You think to yourself, "Self, why am I doing this?" Self replies, "YOU'RE the one who wants to be a hero." 3 0 23 1 99 No matter how strong you feel at the bottom of the mountain, you're always more exhausted than the last time you reached the top. 3 50 0 1 99 You detect a strange, magical aura around this place. 3 4 0 1 99 The gargoyle won't let you climb the walls. 3 1 0 1 99 You see the purple home of someone who must enjoy its precarious perch upon the peak. 3 51 0 1 99 The door is already open. 4 1 0 1 99 It is cloudless. It seems that you are above the clouds. 5 4 0 1 99 I don't think you can reach that window. 5 1 0 1 99 From outside, you can see that the interior of the house is curiously furnished.

1 1 0 1 99 Erasmus likes to keep his suits well-ironed. 2 1 0 1 99 The books on the shelves of the bookcase appear to be very old, very rare, and very magical. 2 1 0 2 99 You find titles like: "Zen and the Art of Magical Maintenance", "How to Be a Halfling", "The Sensuous Succubus", and "Tobin's Spirit Guide, Volume II: Asmodeus to Casper". 3 1 0 1 99 A casket with a stick shift? 4 1 0 1 99 From the looks of the ceiling, this castle must be a gigantic geode. 5 1 0 1 99 It was a moderately large and fearful dragon at one time. 5 57 0 1 99 The head doesn't respond; it looks like it's draggin'. 6 4 0 1 99 Looks like you've slammed the dunker. 6 1 0 1 99 It's the famous dunkin' dragon. You haven't seen one of those in years. 7 1 0 1 99 Through the portal to the east sits a standing room only. 8 1 0 1 99 There is a strange figure on the bookshelf. It looks like an overgrown rat wearing a wizard's hat. 9 1 0 1 99 From the looks of these crystals, this castle must be a gigantic geode. 10 1 0 1 99 This is a Zen lamp. You feel enlightened in its presence. 11 1 1 1 99 You admire the plumage on the peacock. 11 1 2 1 99 The poor stuffed peacock seems bedraggled, worn, and over-used. 11 57 0 1 99 The peacock doesn't respond. Maybe its ears are too stuffed to hear. 12 0 3 1 99 "Naughty, naughty. You were told to go straight up the stairs." 12 0 3 2 99 "Since you're leaving anyway..." 12 0 3 3 99 "That'll learn ya!" 12 0 4 1 99 "I wouldn't do that if I were you!" 12 1 0 1 99 This room is full of odds, ends, and stuff. The wizard must be a real character. 13 1 0 1 99 Erasmus used to buy a new oriental rug every day -- you know, "Carpet Diem". This one lends the room a rugged look. 13 57 0 1 99 The rug shrugs as if to say, "Don't carpet me." 14 1 0 1 99 The stupid stool stands there steadily. 15 1 0 1 99 This is just the table of contents. 16 1 0 1 99 This is a sarcophagus, probably on loan from the Egyptian section of the Leyendecker Museum. You can tell because it has a ribbon around it. 16 1 0 2 99 (It's tied in a Laura Bow.) 17 1 5 1 99 You wonder if the portrait of Erasmus is really a painting, or something completely different. 17 1 6 1 99 Your eyes are drawn to the eyes of the figure in the portrait. His intense stare is unnerving. 17 1 6 2 99 This would not be someone to trifle with, for he looks subtle and quick to anger. 18 1 0 1 99 It's probably a bottle of Djinn. 19 1 0 1 99 Through the portal to the west stands a small sitting room.

1 1 0 1 99 You'd cheddar watch out; Fenrus seems to be pretty gouda with his spellcasting. Don't get him mad, or you'll swiss you'd never been born. 2 1 0 1 99 The tea in the cup sitting on the table seems to refill itself as the wizard drinks. 2 1 0 2 99 The tea in the cup has a strange aroma. 3 1 0 1 99 You are certain those are curtains. 4 0 1 1 16 "Please! The least you could do is ask me about something more interesting." 4 0 2 1 16 "Since you are a practitioner of the magical arts, you might be interested in a little game I have. Do you know the spell 'Open?'" 4 0 2 2 16 "Too bad. You can buy a learning scroll at Zara's shop. You really can't play the game without it." 4 0 2 3 16 "Do you know the spell 'Fetch'?" 4 0 2 4 16 "The Magic shop in town sells the learning scroll. It's a very useful spell for moving things at a distance. You need the spell to play the game." 4 0 2 5 16 "Great! Now, can you cast 'Flame Dart?'" 4 0 2 6 16 "That is a very useful spell if you are going to go adventuring. Zara has that spell as well." 4 0 2 7 16 "Ah, good, good. Now, all you have to know is the spell "Trigger." I don't suppose you know that spell, do you?" 4 0 2 8 16 "I believe I gave a learning scroll to the Hermit. You'll have to talk to him about it." 4 0 2 9 16 "Wonderful! Then you can play a game of Mage's Maze with me. You do want to play, don't you?" 4 0 2 10 16 "I'll teach you the Dazzle spell if you win." 4 0 2 11 16 "Ready to play Mage's Maze?" 4 0 2 12 16 "Nice to see you back. Shall we play a game of Mage's Maze?" 4 0 2 13 16 "Oh, well. It is a good game. Good practice, too. Maybe we can play the next time you visit." 4 0 3 1 16 "Since you won't answer my riddles, to SPELL with you!" 4 0 3 2 16 "You seem to know all of my punchlines, so... to SPELL with you!" 4 0 3 3 16 "Your thoughts give you away, but before you can DO anything..." 4 0 3 4 16 "Not in MY house you don't...." 4 5 4 1 16 "Baba Yaga is good at curses and shape-changing spells. She has a nasty temper, and doesn't believe in 'Safe Hex', so it's best to stay on her good side." 4 5 4 2 16 "You have to watch her. She cheats at cards." 4 5 4 3 17 "So do you!" 4 5 4 4 16 "She started it first. Besides, I wanted her to get a taste of her own medicine." 4 5 4 5 17 "Shame she still beats you." 4 5 5 1 16 "They are supposed to have a warlock working with them. From what I've seen, he's more a nincompoop than a necromancer." 4 5 6 1 16 "Basically, anyone who uses magic is a magic user; anyone who casts spells is a spellcaster." 4 5 6 2 16 "However, to be a wizard, you need to have undergone initiation into the 'Wizard's Institute of Technocery' in the land of Shapeir." 4 5 6 3 16 "Magicians and sorcerers are wizards who specialize." 4 5 6 4 16 "I myself, strive to master all aspects of Magic, unlike those narrow-minded specialists." 4 5 6 5 17 "You wouldn't want to lose your amateur standing, after all." 4 5 6 6 16 "I prefer to think of myself as a dilettante." 4 5 6 7 17 "Does that mean that you tease pickles?" 4 5 7 1 16 "A countercurse is a cure for a curse. It usually works against the one who cast the curse in the first place." 4 5 7 2 16 "The countercurse for the curse of the Baron goes:" 4 5 7 3 16 "Come a Hero from the East..." 4 5 7 4 16 "Free the man from in the beast..." 4 5 7 5 16 "Bring the child from out the band..." 4 5 7 6 16 "Drive the Curser from the land." 4 5 7 7 16 "So, to break the curse, a hero must get rid of Baba Yaga, in addition to all the other things. It does not reflect well on Baba Yaga." 4 5 7 8 17 "Nothing reflects well upon that Ogress. She has a face that would break anything but a Magic Mirror." 4 5 8 1 16 "The curse Baba Yaga placed upon Baron von Spielburg was a fine example of creative cursing." 4 5 8 2 16 "Upon von Spielburg and all his clan, This the curse I now demand:" 4 5 8 3 16 "What I will shall come full measure, So shall ye lose all that ye treasure." 4 5 8 4 16 "Of course, the problem is that for every curse there is an equal and opposite countercurse." 4 5 9 1 16 "Now that's a spell with charm." 4 5 9 2 16 "Its true name is Erasmus's Razzle Dazzle, by the way." 4 5 9 3 16 "You can cast the spell and anyone looking directly at its coruscating light is blinded for awhile and can't do anything." 4 5 10 1 16 "Never met her. I only built this vacation home here a century ago." 4 5 10 2 16 "Erana has a nice little magical meadow in her name northwest of here. Pretty respectable Spellcaster, I imagine." 4 5 10 3 16 "The protection spell she cast over the town is fairly good, but I believe she missed a few places." 4 5 10 4 17 "You're just jealous because the only thing anyone named after you was a soft drink." 4 5 10 5 16 "I thought that "Erasmus's Razzle Dazzle Root Beer" was a WONDERFUL name for a product. It's a shame the company went broke afterwards." 4 5 11 1 16 "I am a wizard of some reknown." 4 5 12 1 17 "What am I, some sort of object? Am I invisible or something that you talk about me behind my back in front of my face? Sheesh, no respect." 4 5 12 2 16 "It's hard to take anyone very seriously who wears such a ridiculous hat." 4 5 13 1 16 "'Fetch' is a useful spell for catching and retrieving small objects." 4 5 13 2 16 "Good for putting things in their place." 4 5 13 3 17 "Like uppity familiars?" 4 5 13 4 16 "I'd put you in your place, but I'm above such things." 4 5 13 5 17 "Besides, my place is above your reach." 4 5 14 1 16 "Henry is a hermit who lives by the Flying Falls to the south. Great sense of humor." 4 5 14 2 17 "That means he actually laughs at Erasmus's jokes." 4 5 14 3 16 "I think he borrowed something the last time I saw him, but I can't remember exactly what it was." 4 5 14 4 16 "Oh, well, Henry is a great one to talk to." 4 5 14 5 17 "But 'e 'ardly ever 'appens to 'ave much to say." 4 5 15 1 16 "You need to complete your quest here before you can become initiated as a Wizard." 4 5 16 1 16 "If Magic be the lute of life, play on!" 4 5 16 2 17 "The quote was "Music", not "Magic"! And it was "food", not "lute"." 4 5 16 3 16 "How about: "Magic makes the world go 'round"?" 4 5 16 4 17 "MONEY makes the world go 'round!" 4 5 16 5 16 "Oh!" 4 5 16 6 16 "Very well, then. To put it in my own words: "Magic is the essence and the soul of life, and the Wizard is her poet"." 4 5 16 7 17 "Actually, it was Merlin who said that first, but he used the term "Magician", not "Wizard"." 4 5 16 8 16 "Fenrus, there are times when you would look better as a newt!" 4 5 16 9 17 "Why is that?" 4 5 16 10 16 "Because newts can't talk!" 4 5 16 11 17 "Neither can most rats." 4 5 17 1 16 "Just a little something to challenge the mind and magic with that I like to play every now and again. Fenrus isn't much of a challenge any more." 4 5 17 2 17 "That's because I always win." 4 5 17 3 16 "I still think you're cheating somehow!" 4 5 17 4 16 "Anyway, the game involves casting four spells: 'Flame Dart', 'Open', 'Fetch', and 'Trigger'." 4 5 17 5 16 "And to make it worth your while, if you beat me, I'll teach you a new spell called 'Dazzle'." 4 5 18 1 16 "There are many types of magic mirrors. One of the more common types is the one that has a strange face popping up every so often." 4 5 18 2 17 "Reminds me of the one in the master bedroom." 4 5 18 3 16 "That's not magical." 4 5 18 4 17 "No, but it does have a strange face peering from it whenever you are in the room." 4 5 18 5 16 "At any rate, I used to have a nice magic hand mirror I misplaced around here somewhere. It could be used to reflect a spell back upon the caster." 4 5 18 6 16 "So, if you happen upon a small golden magic mirror with a dragon handle on it, you'll know it's mine." 4 5 18 7 17 "It was the flagon with the dragon. The mirror had a leer." 4 5 18 8 16 "Oh, that's right." 4 5 18 9 16 "Well, if you find a magic mirror with a face on it, you'll know it reflects spells." 4 5 19 1 17 "Isn't that the Vampire who fell in love with throats?" 4 5 19 2 16 "No, no! That's a 'neck romancer'!" 4 5 19 3 16 "A necromancer is a magic user who has a rather unsavory relationship with corpses." 4 5 19 4 17 "Does that mean a necromancer has ghoul friends?" 4 5 19 5 16 "It means a necromancer is someone who deals with the undead." 4 5 19 6 17 "Canasta with cadavers and Spades with shades, eh?" 4 5 20 1 16 "He laughs too much when he casts his spells." 4 5 20 2 17 "That's because his jokes are funnier than yours." 4 5 21 1 16 "That spell lets you open things, with a mere gesture." 4 5 21 2 16 "If you're really good at it, you can open locks. Useful when you lose your keys." 4 5 21 3 17 "Your keys are in the study under the skull." 4 5 21 4 16 "Why would they be there?" 4 5 21 5 17 "They're skeleton keys, aren't they?" 4 5 22 1 16 "Looks to me as if she missed the back part of the alley, and the spell only applies to areas in town above the ground. Pretty shoddy, if you ask me!" 4 5 22 2 17 "Nobody asked you." 4 5 23 1 16 "Erana's spell prevents the use of excessive violence or hostile magic within Spielburg's walls, with the exception of a couple of places." 4 5 24 1 16 "It's important for a magic user to know as many spells as possible.

I will give six golds to the person who returns my ring." 6 4 37 2 40 "I have already given you your reward for the return of my ring." 6 5 9 1 40 "The only place you can get a magic acorn from is a Dryad's oak tree." 6 5 10 1 40 "Poor man, he hasn't been the same since his son and daughter were taken from him." 6 5 11 1 40 "The Trolls around here are tough monsters that cannot stand the light of day and so are found only at night or in caves." 6 5 11 2 40 "They are very difficult to kill, but I will pay two healing potions for the beard of a troll." 6 5 12 1 40 "Those brutes! I'm always having to heal someone they've beaten up and robbed. I hate thieves." 6 5 13 1 40 "You can see Spielburg castle from my yard outside. The Baron lives there with only his guards for company, so I hear." 6 5 14 1 40 "The Cheetaur looks like a cross between a panther and a man. It is vicious and tough." 6 5 14 2 40 "Unless you are a very tough fighter, you had best try to get away from it. If you do manage to kill it, then I will pay you five silvers for each claw." 6 5 15 1 40 "The dear child, I can still picture her with her beautiful blond hair done up in braids. She was so sweet. It is hard to believe she is gone." 6 5 16 1 40 "If you know the ingredients and then bring them here, I can make you such a potion." 6 5 17 1 40 "I had heard that there was a Dryad in the woods somewhere. I've never met anyone who actually spoke with her before. How very interesting." 6 5 18 1 40 "Fairy Dust obviously comes from fairies. They dance around mushroom rings when it is night. Fairies are magical beings, so be careful around them." 6 5 19 1 40 "Would you believe the brigands almost killed him a while back? Fortunately their leader made them bring Heinrich here where I could heal him." 6 5 20 1 40 "I will pay you one silver for each empty flask you bring me so I can use it for more potions." 6 5 21 1 40 "I use flowers from Erana's Peace to the north in nearly all my potions. They have some of the magic of the place even when they are dried. I will pay you five silvers for a flask full of flowers." 6 5 22 1 40 "I'm not sure what kind of water that is." 6 5 23 1 40 "A Fairy Ring is a circle of mushrooms. Fairies dance in them at night, which makes the mushrooms very magical. Those fairies are cute, but they play rough!" 6 5 24 1 40 "I've never heard of a monster around here with green fur. Rare things are sometimes by their nature magical." 6 5 25 1 40 "Well, my name is Amelia Appleberry, but mostly I am just known as the Healer. I will be happy to sell you some potions. I live here with my pet, Pterry." 6 5 26 1 40 "This potion is used to heal damage and keep wounds from getting worse. It has gotten pretty dangerous around here, and a Healing Potion can be quite useful in a serious situation." 6 5 27 1 40 "I heard the brigand Leader ordering those nasty men to bring poor Heinrich here after they hurt him so. I gave them all a good scolding, you can imagine." 6 5 28 1 40 "Power Potions restore the energy needed to cast spells." 6 5 29 1 40 "I have the skill to use my magic to create potions. I am a bit proud about it; not everyone can do that, you know." 6 5 30 1 40 "Mandrake root is used in a variety of spells, mostly for evil purposes. Mandrake must be pulled from a dead man's grave at midnight. The root is particularly powerful." 6 5 31 1 40 "I need the mushrooms from a fairy ring to make Power Potions. I will pay you one gold for some." 6 5 32 1 40 "Almost due north of here is the meadow called 'Erana's Peace'." 6 5 32 2 40 "It is a very magical area and I understand that it is a place of safety. It is beautiful all year, for the flowers are always in bloom." 6 5 33 1 40 "Oh, that's my pet, Pterry, the pterosaur. He has a girl friend, Pteresa, with a nest in the oak outside my door. Pterry keeps me company and listens while I chatter as I work." 6 5 34 1 40 "I make and sell Healing Potion, Power Potion, Vigor Potion, and Undead Unguent." 6 5 35 1 40 "They are a species of flying lizard. I understand they can grow quite large in the south." 6 5 36 1 40 "I will give six golds to the person who returns my ring. It was a gift when I graduated from the College of Healing." 6 5 37 1 40 "My ring is shaped in gold like a braid of the herb Athelas with entwined leaves. I don't know how I lost it, I hardly ever take it off." 6 5 38 1 40 "He was just a young dashing man when he last rode off; he never returned." 6 5 39 1 40 "I always need ingredients for making potions. Right now, I need some of Erana's Flowers, Magic Mushrooms, Troll Beard, and, let me think ... Oh, yes, Cheetaur Claws." 6 5 39 2 40 "I will be happy to pay you if you bring me some. I'll also buy back any empty flasks you have so that I can recycle them. Waste not, want not, after all." 6 5 40 1 40 "Floating Spirits are the ghosts which usually hang around graveyards at night. They are dangerous, so don't go near them unless you use Undead Unguent first." 6 5 41 1 40 "Stamina is a measure of the energy the body uses as you work or play." 6 5 42 1 40 "Undead Unguent is used to drive off the minor undead such as zombies or floating spirits. It doesn't last long, so you should use it near where you are going to encounter such things." 6 5 43 1 40 "Vigor Potion is used to revitalize yourself after vigorous exercise. It helps to restore stamina." 6 5 44 1 40 "There are not too many zombies in this land, too damp, I suppose. There are some floating spirits, I have heard." 6 10 52 1 99 You find that you have less money than you thought, and can't afford to buy a potion. 6 10 53 1 40 You'll have to be more specific. 6 10 54 1 40 "I need all my flasks for potions. You'll have to get one somewhere else." 6 10 55 1 40 "I don't have any." 6 10 56 1 40 "I hope this will help you." 6 16 0 1 40 "Please, show some respect." 6 21 0 1 40 "Thank you, I always need flasks." 6 28 37 1 40 "Oh, thank you for finding my ring. How I've missed this. Here are six golds and two Healing Potions for your reward!" 6 34 0 1 40 "So you helped the Dryad; that's nice. She does keep the forest around here healthy. So that's how to make a Dispel Potion, is it? Thanks for letting me know." 6 35 51 1 40 "I wouldn't know what to do with that." 6 36 45 1 40 "Thank you, but I have all the flowers I need." 6 36 46 1 40 "Thank you. I can always use flowers from Erana's Peace in potion making. Here are your silvers." 6 36 46 2 99 You put them away. 6 37 0 1 40 "Thank you. I'll save this for a later use." 6 37 16 1 40 "Those Meeps sound so interesting. I'd like to meet them sometime. I'll get to work on that potion of yours." 6 38 16 1 40 "So, you say this is one of the ingredients for the Dispel Potion. Well, I had better get started making it." 6 38 16 2 40 "Thank you. I'm sure that I'll find a good use for Fairy Dust." 6 39 16 1 40 "I don't need any more Flying Water. Thank you anyway." 6 39 47 1 40 "Thank you for the offer, but I really don't need any water." 6 39 48 1 99 The Healer makes some sort of arcane gesture over the flask of water, then looks surprised. 6 39 48 2 40 "I'm sorry, but this water does not seem to have any magical potential at all. This can't be the `Flying Water' you described." 6 39 49 1 99 The Healer makes some sort of arcane gesture over the flask of water, then smiles. 6 39 49 2 40 "Flying Water. How clever." 6 40 45 1 40 "Thank you, but I have enough mushrooms." 6 40 46 1 40 "These are very nice. I'll dry them and grind them into a powder." 6 40 46 2 40 "Let me think, oh yes, I said these are worth a gold. Here you are." 6 40 46 3 99 You put it away. 6 40 50 1 40 "You have ruined the mushrooms with toadstools. I can not buy your mushrooms." 6 46 0 1 40 "Do you mean to tell me that you actually managed to kill a Cheetaur? You're quite a hero, aren't you?" 6 46 0 2 40 "Here is your money. You might think about purchasing a Healing Potion in case you have to fight such monsters again." 6 47 0 1 40 "Don't tell me you actually killed a Troll? Why, you are really amazing. I haven't had any Troll's Beard for a long time. There are two healing potions for the beard." 6 47 0 2 99 You put them away. 7 1 0 1 99 They are ingredients the healer uses to make her potions. 8 1 0 1 99 Soup is good for you. Mmmm Mmmm good. 8 4 0 1 99 It's not your soup. 9 1 0 1 99 It's a ladder up to the loft where the Healer has her personal quarters. No, you can't go up the ladder. 9 4 0 1 99 Don't be nosy. 10 1 0 1 99 The pterosaur's litter box. 11 1 0 1 99 Amelia uses a wide variety of pots to make her magical potions. 11 4 0 1 99 Do you want to burn yourself? Those pots are hot! 12 1 0 1 99 You see a winged lizard much like the one you saw outside. 12 4 0 1 99 Small on a prehistoric scale, but still a pterosaur. 13 0 0 1 40 "I cannot make you another Dispel Potion unless you can convince the Dryad to give you another magic acorn. I do not think that is likely." 13 0 57 1 99 You tell the healer that you have been to visit the Dryad of the Woods, and that she gave you a Magic Acorn and told you the formula for a potion to dispel enchantments. 13 0 58 1 40 "Oh, by the way, if you happen to find a ring on your adventures, I lost my favorite gold ring. I will give a reward to the one who returns it." 13 0 59 1 40 "Here is the potion of Dispel!" 13 0 59 2 40 "Use it by splashing it on the victim of a magic spell. Mind you, this won't work if the spell is caused by a magic item; that type of magic can only be removed by taking away the item." 13 0 60 1 40 "Please leave me to make the potion, and when you return I shall have it for you." 13 0 60 2 40 "If you know the ingredients for a Dispel Potion and bring them here, I can make you such a potion." 13 0 61 1 40 "The Dispel Potion will take a while to make. Why don't you come back later?" 13 0 62 1 40 "Well, what can I do for you this time?" 13 0 63 1 99 The fragrances of herbs mingle with some rather unpleasant odors as you step into the healer's house. 13 0 64 1 99 You put the reward away, and tell her she is welcome, as you leave to avoid being kissed again. 13 0 65 1 40 "Lovely day, isn't it? My, you look very healthy for an adventurer. You must be new." 13 0 65 2 40 "What can I do for you? I can sell you healing potions if you like." 13 0 65 3 40 "I also buy spell components if you are interested in gathering some for me. Don't mind me, I always have so much to do around here." 13 1 0 1 99 You see a clean but very cluttered little hut filled with bottles and potions. The Healer is busy puttering around with her potions. 13 1 0 2 99 There is a small flying creature preening itself on the rafter. A ladder leads to the loft above. A pot over the fire simmers with herbs. It is pleasantly warm in here. 13 4 0 1 99 You can buy potions, get information, or sell ingredients here. 13 50 0 1 99 There is an aura of magic throughout this small cabin. 13 52 0 1 40 "Come back in the morning, please." 13 81 0 1 99 You don't really think that is the correct way to win this game, do you? 14 1 0 1 99 You see bottles and flasks of a wide variety of different potions. 14 4 66 1 99 You carefully grab a couple of Healing Potions and conceal them under your cape. 14 4 67 1 99 If you're going to steal, at least wait until the Healer is not looking. 14 4 68 1 99 You're getting greedy. She'll notice if you take any more. 15 1 0 1 99 The healer uses this table as a workbench. 16 1 0 1 99 You see a few odds and ends (not to mention This and That). 17 1 0 1 99 The view from the window has been obscured by soot from the fire.

1 1 0 1 99 The cave looks very eerie and ominous. 1 4 0 1 99 Better watch out -- those icicles look sharp! 1 57 0 1 99 Although the cave mouth looks like a mouth, and opens and shuts like a mouth, I'm afraid it doesn't know how to talk like a mouth. 2 1 0 1 99 From the blue color of his skin and his huge height, you can tell this is a Frost Giant. 2 1 9 1 99 The gem glows like an aurora in the night sky. 2 1 10 1 99 The Giant looks at you in disgust. Apparently, you did not offer what he desires. 2 2 1 1 32 Bargain 2 2 2 1 32 Brauggi 2 2 3 1 32 Fighting 2 2 4 1 32 Fruit 2 2 5 1 32 Gem 2 2 6 1 32 Hunger 2 2 7 1 32 Mead 2 2 8 1 32 Northlands 2 5 1 1 32 "Find me some fruit for to mellow my mead horn, Gift I will give of a gem that now glows --" 2 5 1 2 32 "Jewel from Jotunheim, flare of the frost flame, Fetch to me fruit that will fill up my fists!" 2 5 1 3 99 (It looks like it will take a lot of fruit to fill up THOSE fists!) 2 5 2 1 32 "Brauggi I be, to boast of my boldness, Strong as the storm that sends forth the snow." 2 5 2 2 32 "Fiercer in fighting than foes in their fury, Fear now this Frost Giant fighter and flee!" 2 5 3 1 32 "Fiercer than frost's bite, my fury is fearless, My axe it is edged as is the ice." 2 5 3 2 32 "This warrior is willing to wield now the war drum, The battleaxe blazes and bellows for blood." 2 5 4 1 32 "Highpoint of harvest, the finest of flavor, Apples or oranges, peaches or pears." 2 5 5 1 32 "Glow of the frost flame that fills up the night field, A jewel that is flawless, the finest of gems." 2 5 6 1 32 "Hollow my food house, for my hunt has been hindered, By having to hurry here from my home." 2 5 7 1 32 "Mead is the mother's milk, mighty yet mellow That brings joy to Giants and madness to men." 2 5 8 1 32 "Far from the frost field, fares forth this fighter, Hunger has hurled me hither from home." 2 5 8 2 32 "My name it is known in the Northlands as Brauggi, Barter with blade's clash, or bargain with me." 3 1 0 1 99 The log is covered with a layer of late winter snow. 3 4 0 1 99 Leave it alone; you don't know where that log's been. 3 57 0 1 99 I'm sure that was fun; why don't you talk to a twig next? 4 1 0 1 99 You can see a small patch of sky through the trees. 4 4 0 1 99 That's it; reach for the sky! 5 1 0 1 99 It's a bit late in the season for skiing. 5 4 0 1 99 Maybe if you reach those mountains, you'll become a true hero. 5 57 0 1 99 I don't think talking to a mountain is healthy. 6 0 0 1 32 "Fruit you have found, to fill all my food stores, Thus filled the bargain, my gem you have bought." 6 0 0 2 32 "Brauggi has bartered, and all has been answered; The mead it may mellow, and now I head home." 6 0 0 4 32 "Courage you carry, but skill it is scanty; Face not this foe before fiercer you fight." 6 0 11 1 99 Brauggi strides off through the cave on his way back to his Northern home. 6 0 12 1 99 Your fruit definitely makes a generous pile in the Giant's cupped hands, but they're not full yet. 6 0 13 1 99 Running on the ice is apparently not a very good idea. 6 0 14 1 99 As you begin to cast your spell... 6 0 15 1 99 Oops. You're not carrying any fruit for the Frost Giant. 6 0 16 1 99 Your meagre selection of fruit makes a paltry pile at the bottom of the Giant's cupped hands. You'll need to get quite a few more apples to fill THOSE hands! 6 0 17 1 99 As you start to throw... 6 1 0 1 99 The mountains rise quickly from this point and are covered with snow. To the west, you can see that the snow has melted in most of the forest, but here it is still heavy. 6 1 18 1 99 Brauggi has departed on the long journey to his homeland. 6 1 19 1 99 Brauggi has become impatient with your questions and gone elsewhere. You will have to return another time. 6 50 0 1 99 The Giant (who does not seem pleased at your casting a spell in his presence) radiates a magical aura. The strongest magic centers on the glowing gem at his belt. 7 1 0 1 99 The blue in the sky is just like the blue sky of your home. You feel a sudden pang of homesickness, and begin to understand Brauggi's loneliness. 7 4 0 1 99 To touch the sky, what dreams you have! 8 1 0 1 99 Snow covers rock, scissors cut snow, and rock breaks scissors. It's very Zen. 8 4 0 1 99 Before you take that snow and put it in your mouth, ask yourself a question: "Do I feel lucky?" 8 57 0 1 99 The rock seems to listen patiently, but doesn't respond. 9 1 0 1 99 Snow covers these rocks like a blanket. 9 4 0 1 99 It would be fun to make a snowball, but you really haven't time. 10 1 0 1 99 There's snow all around this area. In fact, it seems rather colder here than in the rest of the valley. 10 4 0 1 99 It would be fun to make a snowball, but you really haven't time. 11 1 0 1 99 It's a small patch of yellow snow. 11 4 0 1 99 The last thing you need is a yellow snowball.

1 4 0 1 99 You look at the apple cores, and quickly decide they are of no use to you. Besides, they look disgusting. 2 4 0 1 99 The baby Meep is just too quick for you. Besides, they eat too much. 2 1 0 1 99 The baby Meep sure is cute. 3 1 0 1 99 You keep seeing differently-colored Meeps come out of each hole. They either lead to large underground caverns, or they are all connected under the earth. 4 1 0 1 99 There is a wad of bright green fur on the ground. 5 1 0 1 99 The meadow is covered with a light carpet of grass, broken up by the Meep holes. 5 1 1 1 99 There is a wad of bright green fur on the ground. 6 5 2 1 7 "Hey, like, we eat them, you know." 6 5 3 1 7 "Cute, huh?

Hey, sorry." 6 5 5 1 7 "Gee boss, I really don't know much about that at all. Hey, sorry." 6 5 6 1 7 "Hey, like fur is good stuff, keeps us warm. Mine's the best -- it's like green, you know?" 6 5 7 1 7 "Oh, you want some green fur? I think I have some somewhere." 6 5 8 1 7 "We, like, live in tunnels under the ground, you know." 6 5 9 1 7 "I found a scroll lying around in the woods one day. You want it? It's yours." 6 5 10 1 7 "We are happy Meeps, living in our happy holes. Don't worry. Be happy!" 6 5 11 1 7 "We use rocks for doors. They keep us dry and warm in our holes." 6 5 12 1 7 "That thing? I found it lying around in the woods one day. You want it? It's yours." 6 4 0 1 99 The Meep scrambles back into its hole as you try to touch it. 6 1 0 1 99 You realize that you have never seen more than one green Meep at a time.

Pleased to meetcha." 7 0 20 1 99 Hearing a rumble from the Meep hole, you quickly slip out of the way. 7 50 0 1 99 You detect no other magic here. 7 1 21 1 99 All of the Meeps are hiding deep within their holes. Your vicious attack has them terrified. 7 1 22 1 99 You see blue Meeps, purple Meeps, and occasionally a green Meep. They seem to be very shy; whenever you approach one, it hides under its rock. 7 1 23 1 99 You are in the Meeps' Peep. The colorful, furry Meeps timidly pop out of their holes from time to time. 7 51 0 1 99 The Open spell only works on locks and small closed things. 7 2 21 1 99 You can't talk to any of the Meeps. They are all hiding deep within their holes, terrified after your vicious attack. 8 1 0 1 99 The mountains are very steep here. 8 1 0 2 99 Large, heavy-looking rocks cover the many holes. The Meeps must be stronger than they look to lift these rocks so easily. 8 12 0 1 99 No way! Those Meeps are too fast and the rocks too hard for you to want to try that again! 9 1 0 1 99 It looks like a Spell Scroll. 10 1 0 1 99 The trees and bushes look much like those you've seen elsewhere in the valley.

Please leaf a message with your species name and branch. 5 4 5 1 99 The stag remains out of your reach. 5 1 0 1 99 Does a Dryad bark? 5 1 0 2 99 No, but she's a real birch. 5 1 0 3 99 Don't make an ash of yourself. 5 1 2 1 99 The Dryad appears to be a woman made of wood and leaves. 6 4 0 1 99 The hills are far too far to finger. 6 1 0 1 99 Majestic mountains rising in the north are silhouetted against the crystal blue sky. 7 0 6 1 99 You see an acorn fall slowly to the ground. 7 0 7 1 42 "Then you shall aid me, and I shall aid you in your quest." 7 0 7 2 42 "Bring me a seed from the Spore Spitting Spirea of the North that I may plant it elsewhere in order to preserve these rare and magical plants." 7 0 7 3 42 "Thus will you become a true friend of the forest." 7 0 8 1 99 You pick up the Dryad's gift of a Magic Acorn. 7 0 9 1 99 You drop the seed into the Dryad's limbs. 7 0 10 1 42 "Until you have done so, you are only intruding on my concentration." 7 0 11 1 99 That acorn tasted awfully bitter... just like an ordinary acorn. 7 0 12 1 99 You find an ordinary acorn on the ground. 7 0 12 2 42 "You dare to harm the Dryad of the forest! You must be made less dangerous." 7 0 13 1 42 "Heed now my words, friend of the forest, and heed them well." 7 0 13 2 42 "Friend, you must know that there is an evil in this valley which perverts the ways of nature. The prophecy says that a hero will bring a young human from out of this darkness." 7 0 13 3 42 "If you are the one to accomplish this task, there is a potion to break enchantments which the Healer can make for you." 7 0 13 4 42 "You must gather these ingredients:" 7 0 13 5 42 "Flowers from Erana's Peace," 7 0 13 6 42 "Green Fur," 7 0 13 7 42 "Fairy Dust," 7 0 13 8 42 "a Magic Acorn," 7 0 13 9 42 "and Flying Water." 7 0 13 10 42 "Farewell, friend. I must return to my concentration. May the forest forever surround you." 7 0 14 1 99 You follow the stag into this forest corner. You feel as though the eyes of the forest are watching you. 7 0 15 1 99 What a beautiful animal! 7 0 16 1 42 "You need to become a friend of the forest. Harm not the gentle creatures or plants. See with all your senses the magic of the trees and wild places." 7 0 16 2 42 "Wander and learn. Then you too will be in harmony with the forest." 7 0 17 1 42 "Give the seed to me." 7 0 18 1 42 "Now this will boldly grow where none has grown before!" 7 0 19 1 42 "You have destroyed the plant that was to be preserved!" 7 0 19 2 42 "As you have destroyed, so shall you now become!" 7 0 20 1 42 "You have attempted to harm a free creature of the forest!" 7 0 20 2 42 "You shall now become a part of the forest!" 7 0 21 1 42 "You have misused your skills, oh Magician! You have used the Flame Dart on my forest." 7 0 21 2 42 "You must be made less dangerous." 7 0 22 1 99 You are forced to confess that you lied to the Dryad. You don't have the magic seed. 7 0 22 2 42 "It's not nice to fool Mother Nature." 7 0 23 1 99 Yes 7 0 23 2 99 No 7 0 24 1 99 You tell the Dryad: "No amount of persuasion could convince the flowers to relinquish their seed easily, so I was forced to hack my way to the seed with my weapon." 7 0 25 1 99 You pick it up and eat it. 7 0 26 1 99 The acorn appears too ordinary. You drop it back on the ground. 7 0 27 1 42 "I detect that you have in your possession such a seed. Are you willing to give me the seed?" 7 0 28 1 99 "Have you brought the seed I requested?" 7 0 29 1 99 "Well, Hero-to-be! Are you yet a friend of the woods?" 7 0 30 1 99 The tree-woman speaks: "I am the Dryad, keeper of the woods. Are you one with the woods?" 7 0 31 1 99 Again, you feel a sense of closeness with nature. 7 0 32 1 99 You know you will sleep comfortably and well in this quiet and protected corner of the woods. 7 0 33 1 99 The stag is startled by your action. 7 0 34 1 99 You watch the stag, fascinated with his grace and beauty. There is something special about this place. 7 50 0 1 99 The oak tree radiates magic. 7 50 35 1 99 The Dryad radiates magic. 7 4 0 1 99 You can feel a gentle breeze wafting its way between the woods. The scent of fresh flowers and green growing things fills you with a sense of peace. 7 1 0 1 99 You are in a strange and beautiful part of the forest. There is something special about this place. 7 1 0 2 99 The forest becomes so lush and thick to the west that it is difficult to see far. 7 1 0 3 99 The brush and undergrowth has formed an impassable thicket to the south. 7 1 0 4 99 You see thick brush, rocks, and heavy woods to the north. 7 1 0 5 99 You sense a certain magic about the huge oak tree that dominates the clearing. 7 51 0 1 99 That was interesting, but there's nothing here to open. 7 52 36 1 99 You just can't sleep during the daytime. 8 4 0 1 99 The rocks are much to heavy to move. 8 1 0 1 99 The rocks to the north look steep. There is a rock wall northeast of the large oak tree. 8 2 0 1 99 Don't be ridiculous; you can't talk to a rock. Try the trees instead. 9 0 0 1 99 The stag looks more surprised than injured. 9 4 0 1 99 He's beyond your reach. 9 1 0 1 99 The majestic white stag is an outstanding example of the beauty of the animal kingdom.

1 1 0 1 99 The water seems to be trying to fly as it leaps from the mountain above. 2 1 0 1 99 A river plunges for more than a hundred feet down the face of a cliff.

'Ermits are shy, quiet types wot don't say much." 8 5 9 2 43 "Me brother 'Arry 'ardly says a word in a year. Me sister 'Ortense 'asn't spoken since she were six. I never talks at all.

Inside, you see a dark passage through the hillside. 6 1 7 1 99 The Antwerp seems to have flown the coop. 6 1 8 1 99 The grass is luscious, just the thing for hungry herbivores. 7 1 0 1 99 The way is impassable. Sheer rock cliffs rise to serious heights. 8 1 0 2 99 This is an especially rocky area. 9 0 9 1 99 Antwerps have too bouncy a nature to ever be truly calm. 9 0 10 1 99 Antwerps aren't dazzled easily. 9 0 11 1 99 You seem to have scared the Antwerp with your behavior. 9 0 12 1 99 Cockily, you loosen up to fight. 9 0 13 1 99 Confident and loose, you approach the Antwerp. 9 0 14 1 99 "Holy Mackerel!" 9 0 15 1 99 Your spell has unlocked the lock on the rock, but it is not yet powerful enough to open the rock door. 9 50 0 1 99 You detect no magic here. 9 1 16 1 99 Now that the big Antwerp has split, this corner of the forest seems strangely quiet. 9 1 7 1 99 You look around and see rocks and grass, but no Antwerp. 9 1 8 1 99 You see rocks, grass and an Antwerp. 9 1 8 2 99 The forest extends to the east and north. 9 51 0 1 99 It's already unlocked. 10 70 0 1 99 It's a rock, not a charcoal briquette! 10 4 17 1 99 Despite your mightiest efforts, the rock does not move. 10 4 18 1 99 The rock door has already been opened. 10 4 19 1 99 You are not strong enough yet to open the rock door. 10 81 0 1 99 It's a rock, not a charcoal briquette! 10 26 20 1 99 The key glows for an instant as you insert it into the lock, but nothing else happens. 10 26 17 1 99 The lock in the rock clicks open. 10 17 21 1 99 The lock is beyond your present skill. It might help if you had the key. 10 17 22 1 99 You'd have a much easier time of this if you had the key. 10 17 23 1 99 Ah, got it! The lock in the rock clicks open. 10 17 24 1 99 The lock is beyond your present skill. It might help if you had the key. 10 17 24 2 99 ...

Or was that "Hide 'n' go seek"? 10 57 0 2 99 You hear the sound of someone... or something... moving deeper into the cave to let you pass. 10 57 27 1 99 These rocks seem rather stiff.

A walking pace is more appropriate for enjoying the majestic beauty of this scene. 7 1 0 1 99 You see a lovely waterfall in the distance, feeding the lake with ice cold mountain water. The runoff river from the waterfalls forms this scenic lake. 8 1 0 1 99 The rocky shore is blissfully relaxing. 9 1 0 1 99 You've been walking through the forest this long and you can't even recognize a tree??? 10 0 0 1 99 That has no effect on the water, try something else. 10 1 0 1 99 It's the beautiful Spiegelsee, or "Mirror Lake".

Well, maybe the brigands aren't such inhospitable creatures after all. 13 0 31 1 99 Then again, maybe they are. 13 80 0 1 99 You waste a spell. 13 16 0 1 99 You'll have to give yourself room. 13 78 0 1 99 You waste a spell. 13 50 0 1 99 There is no magical aura present. 13 81 0 1 99 You'll have to give yourself room. 13 1 0 1 99 Sheer cliff walls form a narrow box canyon where the brigands have built a fortress.

It must be something about this room. 7 81 11 1 99 "ME" sees you preparing your spell and... 7 17 12 1 99 Nothing is locked. 7 1 13 1 99 There is a deep pit with a walkway winding above it. 7 1 14 1 99 There appear to be stairs leading up (?) to nowhere. There is also what looks like a bowl full of fireflies. 7 1 15 1 99 Wow! 7 52 0 1 99 With the Brigands pounding at the door, you decide not to rest until you're safe. 8 1 0 1 99 Stairs lead up to the platform on which "ME" is located. 9 0 1 1 30 Why would you want to throw that? 9 0 16 1 30 "No more talking, my friend. Let's have fun!" 9 0 17 1 30 You're too busy. 9 0 18 1 30 "It looks like the talking is over." 9 5 19 1 30 "Would he be surprised to see his little girl now!" 9 5 20 1 30 "Everybody needs to know a few magic tricks to get by these days. You'd be surprised how effective Sleeping Powder is for taking out the guards of a caravan." 9 5 21 1 30 "You know about the enchantment? Then perhaps you have come to help. Perhaps you are able to take the child from the band." 9 5 21 2 30 "Elsa doesn't know who she really is. That's part of the enchantment." 9 5 21 3 30 "When Elsa was left with some brigands ten years ago, all her memories were taken away from her." 9 5 21 4 30 "I borrowed a Magic Mirror from a friend to try to break the spell, but it only works when spells are cast directly at you." 9 5 21 5 30 "If you're going to be the big Hero, I hope you brought a Dispel Potion or something." 9 5 22 1 30 "You know about the enchantment? Then perhaps you have come to help. Perhaps you are able to take the child from the band." 9 5 22 2 30 "The true Dispel Potion will break an enchantment. You must splash the potion on Elsa as soon as you can, or she'll skewer you for sure. She's more than a match for old 'Swordy Lordy' now!" 9 5 23 1 30 "You know Elsa? Then perhaps you have come to help. Perhaps you are able to take the child from the band." 9 5 23 2 99 After you have explained what you know about Elsa, Yorick speaks: 9 5 23 3 30 "It's about time that someone else helped Elsa before it's too late! Toro and I are the only friends she's got here." 9 5 23 4 30 "She's a lot like her dad, though. She organized these brigands and changed them from mere thugs to major raiders!" 9 5 23 5 30 "She plans to move the entire band away from the valley as soon as the snow clears. If that happens, I know she will never be disenchanted." 9 5 24 1 30 "There are plenty of doors. You wouldn't want me to spoil your fun, now!" 9 5 24 2 30 "Either you'll figure it out in the end, or you'll end it before you're out." 9 5 25 1 30 "This fort is the brigand's palace. It has been well-constructed." 9 5 26 1 30 "For thirty years I was the Court Jester. Now I jest enjoy watching other people take the pratfalls." 9 5 27 1 30 "I'll protect the Brigand Leader with everything I've got. That's no laughing matter as I get madder." 9 5 28 1 30 "This room is my way of keeping the brigands from bothering the Leader about raises, since it tends to raze the brigands." 9 5 28 2 30 "I designed it myself! This place has people rolling in the aisles." 9 5 29 1 30 "Can't you see that I am he? I try to inspire (before they expire) a sense of awe and majesty in those that enter here." 9 5 29 2 30 "After all, I am the Brigand Warlock. One has to keep up one's appearances, or appear to keep up with one's peers." 9 5 30 1 30 "Toro is the minotaur that guards this fortress. Elsa found him when he was just a calf, and he's kowtowed to her ever since." 9 5 30 2 30 "He guarantees that the brigands won't give Elsa any bull." 9 5 31 1 30 "Ah yes, the 'Mirror with the Leer', as Erasmus calls it (or was it Fenrus?). It reflects a spell back on the caster of the spell." 9 5 31 2 30 "Now where did I put that mirror... Was it on the desk in Elsa's office or else in the office on Elsa's desk?" 9 5 32 1 30 "You snooze, you lose. And my banana trick has appeal of its own." 9 5 33 1 30 "You must know the 'Blade Braggart'. He used to show off in the castle courtyard all the time." 9 5 33 2 30 "Elsa once asked if 'Rapier Ruler' would teach her to use the sword, and the 'Sword Bore' told her he would not waste his talent on females." 9 5 33 3 30 "She came to me in tears. After all, she was only nine at the time." 9 5 33 4 30 "She can teach old 'Weapon Windbag' a thing or two now! Her arm is true, and she's truly disarming." 9 5 34 1 30 "Talking is a speciality of those who know not what they talk about." 9 5 11 1 30 "You know me? Then perhaps you have come to help. Perhaps you are able to take the child from the band." 9 5 11 2 30 "Alas, poor Yorick! I know me well." 9 5 11 3 30 "Ten years ago, I swore I would find Elsa no matter what. It took me two years to find her, here with the brigands, and I've posed as her warlock ever since." 9 5 11 4 30 "I couldn't break the spell on her, nor could I leave her to grow up into an attractive woman surrounded by rogues and scoundrels." 9 5 11 5 30 "Someone had to defend her honor!" 9 4 0 1 30 "Take yourself there." 9 81 1 1 30 "ME" sees you preparing your spell and... 9 81 17 1 99 Now?? 9 1 0 1 30 "It's 'ME'." 9 2 19 1 30 Baron 9 2 20 1 30 Caravan 9 2 21 1 30 Disenchantment 9 2 22 1 30 Dispel 9 2 23 1 30 Elsa 9 2 1 1 30 "Be more specific, my friend." 9 2 24 1 30 Exit 9 2 25 1 30 Fortress 9 2 26 1 30 Jester 9 2 27 1 30 Leader 9 2 35 1 30 "If you have business to do, then get busy doing your business." 9 2 28 1 30 Maze 9 2 29 1 30 Me 9 2 30 1 30 Minotaur 9 2 31 1 30 Mirror 9 2 36 1 30 "Can't you see that's nothing to me?

1 4 0 1 99 A quick but thorough search of the desk discloses two Healing Potions and a mirror. 1 4 1 1 99 You're not close enough. 1 4 2 1 99 You find nothing more. 1 4 3 1 99 You see a mirror. 1 4 4 1 99 You find two Healing Potions. 1 1 0 1 99 You see a plain wooden desk. On the desk are two potion bottles and a hand mirror. 2 4 0 1 99 That would be foolhardy. You would let the brigands in. 3 1 0 1 99 The chest full of gems is monogrammed with the name "Abdulla Doo". He'll sure be happy to get it back. 4 1 0 1 99 There are more diamonds there than in Tiffany's! 5 1 0 1 99 A lot of townsfolk will be happy to get their stolen goods back. 6 25 0 1 99 You throw the Dispel Potion on the brigand leader. 6 4 2 1 99 Good idea, but you don't have that potion. 6 1 0 1 99 The brigand leader wears a sword, and it looks well used. 6 1 5 1 99 Elsa looks much better in a dress. 6 1 5 2 99 It depends on your taste, though, I suppose. 6 1 6 1 99 Everybody else is gone. 6 2 0 1 99 The Brigand Leader stares at you coldly. It seems he's not interested in chatter. 6 2 6 1 27 "We've no time to talk. I'll meet you at the castle." 7 1 0 1 99 That black bird looks strangely familiar. You sense that its destiny is irrevocably entwined with yours, in a strange foreshadowing of the rest of the "Quest for Glory" series. 8 1 0 1 99 Oodles and boodles of ill-booten gotty. 9 1 0 1 99 Let's see, was it the "dragon with the flagon", or the "flagon with the dragon"? 10 1 0 1 99 That gold ornament probably weighs so much it would crumple the hood of your car. 11 1 0 1 99 It looks like King Midas's shield -- worth exactly its weight in gold. 12 0 1 1 99 You're not near the mirror. 12 0 2 1 99 You already have the mirror. 12 4 0 1 99 You pick up the mirror and store it away. 12 1 0 1 99 A strange face leers at you when you look into the mirror. At least, you *hope* you don't look like that! 13 4 0 1 99 You place the two Healing Potions into your pack. 13 4 2 1 99 You are not near the healing potions. 13 1 0 1 99 It's a healing potion. 14 0 7 1 27 "You can't imagine how good it feels to know who I am again. After all these years, to remember my name is Elsa von Spielburg!" 14 0 7 2 27 "I used to wish I was not a brigand's child but actually an enchanted princess. Now I know that I really was enchanted, and I don't have to be a brigand any more!" 14 0 7 3 27 "Thank you so much for freeing me." 14 0 7 4 27 "I've got to hurry home to father and get his guards to capture the rest of the brigands before they manage to escape with the treasure. It must be returned to the rightful owners." 14 0 7 5 27 "Yorick! Yorick! I'm me again!" 14 0 7 6 31 "Sorry I took so long. I got lost." 14 0 7 7 31 "Will your Dad be glad that your spell's been repelled! We need to go before the brigands know or they'll spoil our show." 14 0 7 8 31 "C'mon! We'd better make our getaway before they get in our way." 14 0 7 9 27 "Yorick and I can return to the castle with the amulet I wear, but I'm afraid you'll have to get there on your own." 14 0 7 10 27 "There are two Healing Potions on my desk that you may take with you." 14 0 7 11 27 "You should use this secret passage and escape while they are arguing over the treasure. If they find you in here, you'll be overwhelmed and killed." 14 0 7 12 27 "Thank you again, and good luck! I'll make sure you are richly rewarded for your bravery." 14 0 7 13 31 "If you decide to counter the curser, then mind the mirror over mere minds. So tip the canoe and toodleloo! Elsa, if you do the honors, I'll honor your due." 14 0 7 14 99 The brigands are trying to break into the room. 14 0 7 15 99 Thinking about all that treasure cost you time and more. Some folks just don't know when to leave. 14 0 8 1 31 "Elsa, my dear, there's a problem I fear. To our dismay, that spell's here to stay, for alas you did slay your hero today." 14 0 9 1 99 You finally made it through Yorick's room. 14 0 9 2 99 The brigand leader taunts you with his stillness. You're sure that at the first wrong move, you'll become an ex-hero. 14 0 9 3 99 Too late! 14 50 0 1 99 There's so much magic in here that it's hard for you tell which is which. 14 25 0 1 99 After hours of hard and dangerous labor collecting the components to make the dispel potion, in a moment of sudden genius, you throw the potion away. It's a brilliant and unexpected strategem. 14 25 0 2 99 Unfortunately, it is also a very bad idea. You no longer have the Dispel Potion. 14 1 0 1 99 The Leader's room is filled with treasures. 15 1 0 1 99 That looks like a Persian carpet. It has a license plate that says "Abdulla Doo 222." 16 1 0 1 99 Sheesh! Even the lamps have enough gold to be worth more than Jose Canseco's annual salary. Well, maybe not quite *that* much. 17 1 0 1 99 What a funny guy! 17 1 0 2 99 He's not here.

1 1 0 1 99 The arrows point to various orifices. 2 1 0 1 99 It's another door! 3 1 0 1 99 It's an entrance... or is it an exit? 4 1 0 1 99 The attic exit? 5 1 0 1 99 It looks like a picture of an door painted on the wall. 5 4 0 1 99 You're not close enough. 6 1 0 1 99 A pet door? It's shorter than you are. 7 1 0 1 99 It's a chain of events. 8 1 0 1 99 Engraved on the button are the words: "PUSH ME". 9 1 0 1 99 It reminds you of a tie you once received as a present on All-Fools Day. 10 1 0 1 99 It IS!

1 34 0 1 99 You eat the Magic Acorn. It tastes terrible. Better stick to real food next time. 1 42 0 1 99 That would make a pretty silly-looking hat. 1 44 0 1 99 Inscribed on the bottom you read, "Property of John B. Nimble." 1 46 0 1 99 You absent-mindedly clean your fingernails with one of the Cheetaur's claws. 1 25 0 1 99 You don't feel anything. Perhaps this was not the correct way to use this potion. 1 4 0 1 99 You do a quick equipment check. Everything seems to be in place. 1 38 0 1 99 You sprinkle just a smidge of the magical dust on and about your person... 1 38 0 2 99 ... and try to fly. But it appears that none of those Fairies was named Tinker Bell. 1 21 0 1 99 It's empty. Maybe you should recycle it. 1 36 0 1 99 Your mother always told you to stop and smell the flowers. 1 39 0 1 99 You drink the clear water from the flask, draining it completely. 1 32 0 1 99 You eat some of the apples. They actually taste quite good. 1 29 0 1 99 You feel a tingling sensation as you rub the unguent all over your body. 1 37 0 1 99 It would make a great coat for a Leprechaun. 1 22 0 1 99 The drink soothes as it goes down. 1 26 0 1 99 You fought so hard for this key, you just can't bear to part with it. 1 14 0 1 99 The leather makes you think kinky thoughts. (And you wondered why adventurers dress up this way.) 1 17 0 1 99 You delicately insert the lockpick into your left nostril. 1 17 1 1 99 Success! Your nose is now open. 1 17 2 1 99 Unfortunately, you push it in too far, causing yourself a cerebral hemorrhage. Guess you should have been practicing on less difficult locks. 1 17 2 2 99 The surgeon general warns . . . 1 1 0 1 99 Whatta guy!! 1 27 0 1 99 You pause to admire the way the gem glows with its own inner light. 1 13 0 1 99 What's this? A chink in your armor? No, it's just a rust spot. 1 23 0 1 99 The drink burns as it goes down. 1 31 0 1 99 Baba Yaga is welcome to it! If it tastes half as bad as it smells... 1 30 0 1 99 You foxy devil, you! 1 40 3 1 99 That's funny. I could have sworn I warned you about eating too many Magic Mushrooms. Your mind permanently warped, you die a garishly polka-dotted death. 1 40 3 2 99 Where did all the pretty horses go? 1 40 3 3 99 Hmm, that was interesting. But it would probably not be a good idea to repeat the experience. 1 40 4 1 99 You don't need to do that right now. 1 40 5 3 99 Your senses gradually return to normal. 1 40 6 1 99 You ingest a few of the mushrooms from the Fairy Ring. They taste delicious. 1 40 6 2 99 Wow! Look at all the nice paisley horses! 1 40 6 3 99 Not to mention the beautiful neon sky. 1 40 7 1 99 The mushrooms from the Fairy Ring are pretty good, so you hear. However, when they're mixed with Kobold toadstools... that's a horse of a different color. 1 40 7 2 99 You eat some of the Kobold's fungus. Within seconds your insides feel like they're on fire. Guess you're not a Kobold, huh? 1 40 7 3 99 Didn't anyone warn you about eating other people's food? Death by Toadstools doesn't leave mushroom for improvement. 1 40 7 4 99 You think that you'd better take it easy for a while until you recover. 1 43 0 1 99 Play it again, Ludwig. 1 53 0 1 99 You read it again and puzzle over its meaning. 1 45 0 1 99 They're nice, but they don't go with your outfit. 1 11 0 1 99 The rations are tasteless but filling. 1 28 0 1 99 It's not your size. 1 35 0 1 99 After wiping the plant saliva from it, you examine the large seed. 1 15 0 1 99 That wasn't quite what the Surgeon General meant when he suggested you use a shield. 1 10 0 1 99 You check to see if your money's still there. Yep, it is. 1 24 0 1 99 The drink is invigorating. 1 12 0 1 99 You prepare to fall on your sword, but you finally decide that it would be uncomfortable. 1 18 0 1 99 You remain amazed at the number and versatility of the little gimcracks and thingamabobs inside your thief's tool kit. 1 19 0 1 99 The picture on your thief's license doesn't look a bit like you. 1 47 0 1 99 You try on the troll beard, but the goat-like smell convinces you to remain clean-shaven for a while. 1 41 0 1 99 The vase makes an even worse hat than the candelabra. 1 33 0 1 99 You eat some vegetables. You think they would have been better saved for cows or horses. Real Heroes eat preserved dry rations. 1 2 0 1 99 Mumble, mumble... overworked... mumble... underpaid... mumble, mumble... no control over my life...

Then it cast a spell upon me and I remember very little after that." 4 1 0 1 99 A brazier stands ready for the evenings coals. 5 1 0 1 99 The couch must be a precious heirloom; why else would the Baron keep such an uncomfortable-looking piece of furniture around? 6 1 0 1 99 The von Spielburg coat of arms: Twin Saurus guarding, Winged Chevron, on a field Azure. 7 1 0 1 99 The guards stand stiffly at attention. 7 2 0 1 99 The guards are not free to speak. 8 1 0 1 99 A roast pig waits on the sideboard to be your supper. 9 1 0 1 99 The Baron collected these pillars on an ocean quest for an undersea kingdom. 10 0 23 1 99 You'd better stay in the main hall. It wouldn't be wise to offend the Baron. 10 0 24 1 99 Suddenly, you hear voices, seeming to come from everywhere at once. They all sound like Baba Yaga, and they all say: 10 0 24 2 99 "Wheeeeeere's myyyyyy Maaaandraaaaake Rooooooooooooot????" 10 1 0 1 99 The Great Hall of Spielburg Castle is not very impressive. The room is plain, with scuffed floors and grimy plastered walls. 10 1 25 1 99 You are less than awed by Baron von Spielburg's Great Hall. You'd think a Baron could keep his home a little cleaner. You try to hide your disappointment. 10 2 25 1 99 You rehearse your award acceptance speech. 10 4 25 1 99 You straighten your clothing. The presence of all this nobility makes you slightly uncomfortable. 10 81 0 1 99 You realize, of course, that such actions will not only have you grabbed by guards, dragged to the dungeon, and brutally tortured, but that you probably won't be able to win this game if you perform them. 11 1 0 1 99 The Baron grabbed these windows on crusades to Tangiers. 12 1 0 1 99 The table is prepared for dinner. Do you have timing or what? 12 4 0 1 99 The table is filled to overflowing. 13 1 0 1 99 The tapestry on the back wall seems to depict some great battle of the past. 14 1 0 1 99 The throne of the Baron is an unimpressive wooden highback chair. 15 1 0 1 99 A vase from the Ding Dynasty. (So named because their stoneware makes a pleasant bell-like sound when tapped with a fingernail.) 16 1 0 1 99 A wine of the rarest vintage from Raseir stands ready for dinner.

Better hope his friends aren't around. 3 1 17 1 99 It's a Cheetaur, a Cheetah Centaur, one of the deadliest creatures in the land. Hope you've saved your game recently. 3 1 18 1 99 Oh, no! It's a fierce (and hungry) looking Saurus Rex (smarter than your average Saurus). 3 1 19 1 99 It's an ugly little Goblin. 3 1 20 1 99 It's dead, of course. 3 1 20 2 99 It doesn't smell very good, either. 3 1 21 1 99 It's a Mantray, a former sea creature that took flight many generations ago and moved to the mountains.

It says "Out to lunch." 6 4 0 1 99 The door is locked. 7 1 0 1 99 The sign reads "Hero's Tale Inn" 8 1 0 1 99 The Sheriff's office doubles as a jail for the town and a hangout for the Sheriff and the Goon. 9 1 0 1 99 The Sign of the Scissors above the door indicates that the building contains a Barber Shop. 10 1 0 1 99 The town gate is standing wide open, as it does every day. It is made of sturdy logs. 10 4 0 1 99 That's the Sheriff's job. 11 1 0 1 99 There's more than a hint of Ogre about this strange and bulky character. He seems cheerful, though. 11 57 0 1 41 "Otto only expresses himself physically." 12 0 1 1 99 Spielburg remains colorful, even at night. 12 0 2 1 99 This seems like a quiet little town. On the porch ahead of you are two people. The standing one is large, rather ugly, and playing with a yo-yo. The seated person smoking a pipe looks like he might be the Sheriff. 12 0 3 1 41 "Just a friendly suggestion, but whatever you do, don't drink the Dragon's Breath. Not even Otto can drink Dragon's Breath!" 12 0 4 1 99 The man with the pipe greets you. 12 0 4 2 41 "Welcome to our town. You are lucky to have made it down from the mountains before the snow blocked the pass again. It's gotten pretty dangerous outside of town, I understand." 12 0 4 3 41 "Many monsters have been trapped around here with the late snow. Between them and the brigands, we certainly could use a Hero around here." 12 0 4 4 41 "I am Sheriff Schultz Meistersson. This is Otto Von Goon, my assistant." 12 0 4 5 41 "Good luck in your quest." 12 0 5 1 99 However, this was not a good place to sleep. You're stiff and sore all over, and your wallet feels very light. 12 0 5 2 99 As safe as our streets are, you still should not sleep on them. It is a good way to get robbed. 13 1 0 1 99 This is the door to the Sheriff's office. 13 4 1 1 99 You'd better not. The Goon would probably clobber you with his yo-yo if he thought you were going into the Sheriff's office without permission. 13 4 2 1 99 The door appears to be locked, and breaking into the Sheriff's office might evoke the wrath of Otto von Goon. 14 1 0 1 99 Schultz appears to be an affable old coot, content to smoke his pipe. There's a hardness behind his eyes, however, that gives you reason to believe that he's no pushover. 14 2 6 1 41 Adventure 14 2 7 1 41 The Baron 14 2 8 1 41 The Brigands 14 2 9 1 41 The Castle 14 2 10 1 41 Danger 14 2 11 1 41 The Guild Hall 14 2 12 1 41 The Inn 14 2 13 1 41 Magic 14 2 14 1 41 The Merchant 14 2 15 1 41 Monsters 14 2 16 1 41 The Mountain 14 2 17 1 41 Name 14 2 18 1 41 Otto 14 2 19 1 41 Prisoners 14 2 21 1 41 Sheriff 14 2 22 1 41 Town 14 2 23 1 41 Treasure 14 2 24 1 41 Wolfgang 14 4 0 1 99 Unhand that sheriff! 14 5 6 1 41 "You'll need to talk to the Baron about that. Or go ask Wolfgang down at the Guild Hall, which is just down the street." 14 5 6 2 41 "So maybe you're going to be a hero? Well, we could surely use one around here, what with all the brigands." 14 5 7 1 41 "Baron Stefan keeps mostly to himself at his castle north of here. We haven't seen him here in town for years." 14 5 8 1 41 "There's a whole band of brigands hiding out somewhere in the mountains around us. They robbed a merchant just last week. Got a fair amount of treasure, I hear." 14 5 9 1 41 "Baron Stefan keeps mostly to himself at his castle north of here. We haven't seen him here in town for years." 14 5 10 1 41 "My friend, this world's filled with dangers. Sometimes I think it might be better to choose your danger, rather than sitting around, waiting for it, as I seem to do." 14 5 10 2 41 "But enough of this philosophical rambling. I am content enough to be Sheriff of Spielburg." 14 5 11 1 41 "The Guild Hall is at the southwest corner of town. If you're looking for work, that's a good place to go." 14 5 12 1 41 "Go talk to the Innkeeper. He will help you there." 14 5 13 1 41 "Just next to the Inn is a small Magic Shop. The owner, Zara, will let you in if you have some abilities in that area. She's a strange one, all right!" 14 5 14 1 41 "The one who was robbed? He's staying at the Inn, I believe." 14 5 15 1 41 "The monsters come down from the mountains every winter, but they're usually gone by now. The Baron just doesn't have enough men to handle them." 14 5 15 2 41 "Wolfgang is the one to talk to about monsters. He's had a lot of experience with them." 14 5 16 1 41 "You should know. You came down from there." 14 5 17 1 41 "I am Sheriff Schultz Meistersson, and this is Otto von Goon, my assistant." 14 5 18 1 41 "Otto is a big help to me. He's very smart for a Goon. His prisoners only suffer a few broken bones when he grabs them." 14 5 18 2 41 "It took a bit of doing to teach him to bring prisoners back alive, but he hardly ever forgets, now." 14 5 19 1 41 "It's simple. When somone breaks the law, and we catch them, we hold them prisoner." 14 5 20 1 41 "There's a whole band of brigands hiding out somewhere in the mountains around us. They robbed a merchant just last week. Got a fair amount of treasure, I hear." 14 5 21 1 41 "A policeman's lot is not a happy one." 14 5 22 1 41 "This town was named after the Barons of Spielburg. It used to be a lively place to be, before the brigands came and drove all the business away." 14 5 22 2 41 "You can find a place to stay at the Inn next door. You can learn about jobs available at the GuildHall down the street. If you are interested in magic, you should visit the Magic Shop. There is still plenty to do and see here in Spielburg." 14 5 23 1 41 "Obtaining treasure involves putting yourself in danger. If you're brave, foolish, or lucky, you might get some treasure." 14 5 24 1 41 "Wolfgang, down at the Guild hall, is the one to talk to about monsters. He's had a lot of experience with them." 15 1 0 1 99 The ugly statue seems to be watching you. 15 4 0 1 99 As you lay your hands on the ugly statue, a swirling miasma of emotions overcomes you. You feel the sculptor's pain and suffering, his disgust with his condition, and the conflicting urges to enjoy and flee from his talent. 15 4 0 2 99 No, that's not it. The real reason for the disgust you feel has more to do with the pigeon droppings on your hands. You surreptitiously wipe them clean. 16 1 0 1 99 The handsome statue seems to be watching you. 16 4 0 1 99 The statue feels cold and clean, and smells faintly of soap. 17 1 0 1 99 If this is the town water supply, no wonder nobody ever comes here. 18 1 0 1 99 Gosh! That's an authentic "whamma blamma three scoops of mana hilarious gregarious floats in the airious" yoyo! 18 4 0 1 99 Are you crazy? That goon would tear you limb from limb if you tried to steal his yoyo! 18 20 0 1 99 Are you crazy? That goon would rend your spleen asunder if you did anything to his yoyo!

1 0 1 1 4 "Your kindness overwhelms me. I can tell you will someday be a great hero." 1 0 1 2 4 "Now you will have a secret. Among the items they stole from me was a magic rug. I alone know the words to command it." 1 0 1 3 4 "If you help recover my treasure, I will take you, Shameen, and Shema back to our land by way of the flying carpet. Shapeir needs powerful heroes, too!" 1 0 1 4 4 "Oh, it is indeed sad and dangerous times we live in when a man who struggles daily to keep from starving should be robbed of all his earthly possessions!" 1 0 1 5 4 "Hello again, my friend." 1 5 2 1 4 "The band of brigands ambushed us just as we crossed the pass into the valley. There were about twelve brigands, including a huge minotaur." 1 5 2 2 4 "There was also a leader, and some sort of wizard. They first used some sort of magic which blinded us. Then, they overwhelmed my six guards and my assistants." 1 5 2 3 4 "All my trade goods taken from before me! I am now but a beggar, living off the generosity of my friends." 1 5 3 1 4 "A treasure fit for the Sultan that I found upon my travels. I alone know the commands which make it fly!" 1 5 4 1 4 "I will show you how I fly the carpet when I get my treasure back. Alas, that may never be. I have lost everything!" 1 5 5 1 4 "Even though they, too, lost a fortune when the brigands stole from me, Shameen and Shema are caring for this frail shadow of a great man." 1 5 6 1 4 "Here I pay good money for men to protect me, and what do they do when I need protection? They run away." 1 5 6 2 4 "Not one man died to defend my treasure. You just can't hire good guards any more." 1 5 7 1 4 "The leader was wearing a cloak, so I couldn't see his face. His voice was rather high pitched, though." 1 5 8 1 4 "The Wizard threw something at us that caused my eyes to be blinded with tears and my nose to be forced to sneeze. I was helpless." 1 5 9 1 4 "I trade the treasures of one land for that of another. But the brigands have stolen every treasure I had and I am a merchant no more." 1 5 10 1 4 "The Minotaur is a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man. They are said to be very strong." 1 5 11 1 4 "I am Abdulla Doo, son of Ali, grandson of Hasan, and former master merchant of Shapeir. Now I am but a penniless burden upon my friends." 1 5 12 1 4 "Two weeks ago I was going to be wealthy beyond what you could dream of! I, Abdulla Doo, would be the first merchant into this valley this year. But my life was shattered by brigands." 1 5 13 1 4 "He is the very prince of Kattas." 1 5 14 1 4 "Ah, Shapeir, beautiful land of golden sands and shining sun. The heart of civilization!" 1 5 14 2 4 "Alas, she is plagued with fierce Djinn and Efreets who seek to drive all men and Kattas from the land." 1 5 14 3 4 "But I can speak no more of the homeland I shall never see again. Instead, I will die in this cold, forsaken land, bereft of all I love." 1 5 15 1 4 "She is the finest of cooks (outside of myself, that is). But her fine food is as dust in my mouth, for I am but a beggar." 1 5 16 1 4 "I had treasures carefully brought from Shapeir with me. I even had a Magic Carpet with me!" 1 5 17 1 4 "The Wizard was very short, and he giggled most of the time. I couldn't understand what he was saying." 1 16 0 1 99 What did Abdulla do to you that you should do him in? 1 1 0 1 99 The merchant is a rather fat man with a small moustache and beard. He wears a turban. 1 11 0 1 99 The merchant gratefully accepts your food ration, and consumes it in record time. 1 11 18 1 99 The merchant gratefully accepts your offer. 1 11 18 2 99 Abdulla Doo consumes his meal in record time. 1 10 0 1 4 "Gladly will I allow you to buy me a meal, O Prince among Heroes." 1 10 0 2 4 "Your offer is gracious, but keep your coins. Abdulla Doo is no beggar." 1 10 0 3 99 Your lips say yes, but your purse says no. 1 10 0 4 4 "Shema, prepare for me the feast of six houris. I am willing to wait." 1 10 0 5 4 "Shema, prepare for me the thrice brewed tea of the Southern Seas. I am willing to wait." 1 10 0 6 99 Abdulla already has one expensive-sounding order pending. 1 10 0 7 4 "Grateful is my parched throat, noble Hero.

The proprietor of the inn apparently thinks so, too. Cats always seem to gravitate to a warm hearth. 5 1 0 1 99 A well-fed fire purrs happily in the fireplace. 6 1 0 1 99 The cheery firelight reflects off the freshly waxed floor. 7 1 19 1 99 You practically licked the plate clean. That was delicious. 7 1 20 1 99 The food looks unusual, but smells surprisingly good. 8 1 0 1 99 You look closely and read: "Genie's lamp for rent. Inquire in 'Quest for Glory 2: Trial By Fire' for details." Oh, it's just another cheap plug. 9 4 0 1 99 Ouch. 9 1 0 1 99 This is the idiot half-brother candle. (It's only half-bright.) 10 1 0 1 99 This authentic Polynesian mask is far, far from home. 11 1 0 1 99 This well-used ale tankard has seen fuller days. 12 1 0 1 99 That well-stuffed pillow looks more comfortable than these hard wooden benches. 13 1 0 1 99 Collection of designer plates loaned to the Hero's Inn by Mary Meister. 14 1 0 1 99 One of Hiram Plugmeister's double-barreled spitoons. 15 0 21 1 99 The food tastes surprisingly good, and the drink is delicious. 15 0 21 2 99 The beverage goes down smoothly and well. 15 0 18 1 99 Hey! Stop that! What do you think this is: some kind of biker bar? 15 0 22 1 99 You take a seat at the table nearest the fire. 15 16 0 1 99 You'd better check your skill list. Ornamental carving isn't on there. 15 4 0 1 99 You see a sign that says, "Please don't touch." Besides, Shameen is watching you. 15 4 18 1 99 That wood never work; the table is too board and logy to respond. "Planks anyway," you tell it. 15 1 0 1 99 This looks like an alpine inn, complete with dishes on the wall and heavy beams on the ceiling. It is pleasantly warm, and the aroma of strange spices fills the air. 15 52 0 1 99 You must pay the innkeeper for a room. 15 71 23 1 99 Finish your drink. 15 71 24 1 99 Eat your meal first. 15 71 25 1 99 You should wait for Shema to bring you what you ordered. 16 4 0 1 99 Ouch. 16 1 0 1 99 This is the brighter candle. 17 0 0 1 3 "Welcome! Welcome, traveler, to the Hero's Tale Inn! I am Shameen, at your service. May you find what you seek here." 17 0 26 1 3 "May you dream of all the rewards you deserve." 17 0 26 2 99 You thank Shameen and pay him 5 silvers for the room. 17 5 27 1 3 "He is a merchant from my homeland of Shapeir, a dear friend and guest here." 17 5 2 1 3 "I know little about them except they must be wealthy now." 17 5 28 1 3 "In my homeland, a caravan is the only way to travel from city to city." 17 5 29 1 3 "Very good food, very good drink, finest in town. Sit, rest, you will be served by my Shema." 17 5 30 1 3 "We live far to the south in the desert lands of Shapeir. Someday we may yet return there." 17 5 31 1 3 "This is the Hero's Tale Inn, where Shema and I will be delighted to serve you." 17 5 31 2 3 "The softest and safest of beds, the richest and finest of foods awaits you. You have but to command." 17 5 32 1 3 "We are a race of desert dwellers and wanderers of the endless sands." 17 5 33 1 3 "Poor Abdulla sits and tries to forget his loss in food and drink. I think he will not be sorry if you join him at his table." 17 5 9 1 3 "My friend, Abdulla, is recovering from his robbery last week. He should be here around suppertime." 17 5 11 1 3 "I am Shameen, a poor unfortunate, forced to seek a fortune in this cold land far away from my homeland and my Katta people." 17 5 34 1 3 "There is no end to the food that that one can eat!" 17 5 12 1 3 "Alas, the brigands stole all of Abdulla's wealth and mine own when they robbed his caravan. Now I will be forced to stay in this wet, cold land." 17 5 35 1 3 "Very nice room, very soft beds -- finest in town. Only five silvers a night." 17 5 14 1 3 "A land of golden sand and tall mountains, a city of tall buildings and winding streets!" 17 5 14 2 3 "A place where Katta can bask in the sun as they sell things in the bazaar. " 17 5 14 3 3 "It is our homeland, and a place we long to be." 17 5 15 1 3 "Shema is my beloved, and she can cook and keep an Inn as few others." 17 5 15 2 3 "When she dances, there is true magic. If we ever return to Shapeir, then she will again dance. " 17 5 36 1 3 "He comes in with his wife sometimes for food. He is very wise and generous." 17 5 37 1 3 "This is a cold land for a Katta." 17 5 38 1 3 "Spielburg is a sad place for an Innkeeper, for few travelers visit because of the brigands." 17 5 16 1 3 "I hoped to return to my homeland with the profits Abdulla, Shema, and I would make from the caravan. Now, I fear, we will remain here unless someone deals with the brigands and returns our stolen trade items." 17 4 0 1 99 You think better of it; those claws look sharp. 17 1 0 1 99 You see a small, cat-like creature known as a Katta. You've heard that Kattas are common in the southern deserts. 17 10 39 1 99 Because your silver is too low, you must find other accomodations. Perhaps you can find work somewhere. 17 10 40 1 99 It's too early to go to bed; you don't feel tired enough to sleep. 17 10 40 2 3 "I dare not offend my wife by letting you rent a room before she has finished serving you." 17 10 41 1 99 You are sure that you would not be able to sleep, because you are so hungry. 17 69 42 1 3 "Very good food, very good drink, finest in town. Sit, rest, you will be served by my Shema." 17 2 27 1 3 Abdulla 17 2 2 1 3 Brigands 17 2 28 1 3 Caravan 17 2 29 1 3 Food 17 2 30 1 3 Homeland 17 2 31 1 3 Inn 17 2 32 1 3 Katta 17 2 33 1 3 Merchant 17 2 9 1 3 Merchant 17 2 11 1 3 Name 17 2 34 1 3 Otto 17 2 12 1 3 Robbery 17 2 35 1 3 Room 17 2 14 1 3 Shapeir 17 2 15 1 3 Shema 17 2 36 1 3 Sheriff 17 2 37 1 3 Spielburg 17 2 38 1 3 Town 17 2 16 1 3 Wealth 18 0 43 1 2 "I bring you that which you ordered.

Do you wish food or drink?" 18 0 45 1 2 "Permit me to clear the table for you." 18 5 27 1 2 "Abdulla, too, is from the land of Shapeir." 18 5 46 1 2 "It is true I love to dance, but my soul can not fly so far from home." 18 5 23 1 2 "We have rich black coffee, freshly ground and brewed as only my people do. Such coffee will bring you to your full alertness. It is but a silver." 18 5 29 1 2 "We have very good stew of newborn lamb along with honey chicken for a mere three silvers. Coffee is included in the price of the meal." 18 5 30 1 2 "Our homeland is far to the south. It is called Shapeir." 18 5 32 1 2 "Katta are a quiet, gentle people." 18 5 9 1 2 "Abdulla will always be our guest and friend." 18 5 11 1 2 "I am Shema, which means in the words of the Katta, 'She of the Dance.'" 18 5 47 1 2 "It is Shameen who is the speaker for the house, for I have much work to do to serve you." 18 5 47 2 2 "If you wish to know more about such things, then you should speak to him." 18 5 12 1 2 "Abdulla will be honored to tell you of that." 18 5 35 1 2 "You have but to give Shameen five silvers, and you may have a bed to dream upon." 18 5 13 1 2 "He is my soulmate." 18 5 14 1 2 "Shapeir is where we Katta come from. It is warm and glowing and the sun is always bright." 18 4 0 1 99 Her claws look too sharp for you to risk her (or her husband's) wrath. 18 1 0 1 99 You see a rather attractive female Katta wearing her native costume. 18 10 48 1 99 One more cup of coffee and you'll be up all night. Better quit now. 18 10 49 1 99 You caffeine addicts are all alike. 18 10 18 1 99 There's no need. You're not hungry. 18 10 50 1 99 You pay Shema for a meal. 18 10 51 1 99 You decide not to buy that. 18 10 39 1 99 Because your silver is too low, you must find other accomodations. Perhaps you can find work somewhere. 18 10 41 1 99 You are ravenous and immediately pay for a meal. 18 2 27 1 2 Abdulla 18 2 46 1 2 Dance 18 2 23 1 2 Drink 18 2 29 1 2 Food 18 2 30 1 2 Homeland 18 2 32 1 2 Katta 18 2 9 1 2 Merchant 18 2 11 1 2 Name 18 2 47 1 2 Questions 18 2 12 1 2 Robbery 18 2 35 1 2 Room 18 2 13 1 2 Shameen 18 2 14 1 2 Shapeir 19 4 0 1 3 "That door leads to the sleeping rooms.

1 1 1 1 99 You can just see a thin thread of light under the door, so there is probably someone inside. 1 1 2 1 99 The Guild Hall building appears to be dark and closed up. 1 4 1 1 99 You enter the Adventurers' Guild Hall. 1 4 2 1 99 The door appears to be locked. 1 16 0 1 99 Your dirk doesn't work on the door. 1 26 0 1 99 That key doesn't fit this lock. 2 1 0 1 99 Judging from what the sign says, the building at the end of the street is the Guild Hall. 3 1 1 1 99 This looks like a nice, neat little house. There is a grandmotherly Little Old Lady rocking on the front porch. 3 1 2 1 99 The house looks closed up. There is no sign of the Little Old Lady. 3 4 1 1 99 The door appears to be locked, and there is no answer to your knock.

You have an eerie feeling that someone is watching you. 7 1 0 1 99 There's no getting around it... a shop with its eye on you makes you nervous. 8 1 0 1 99 Not the sturdiest lock you've ever seen.

1 1 0 1 99 This is certainly a weird one! You've never seen anything quite like it. 1 1 0 2 99 The plaque reads: "Antwerp -- slain by Two Guys From Andromeda". 2 1 0 1 99 A past adventurer's armor suit. You wonder why he doesn't need it any more. (Then you see the Cheetaur claw marks.) 2 4 0 1 99 The armor won't fit you -- they made them smaller in those days. 3 1 0 1 99 On the table is an old but ornate leather-bound book. There is also a quill pen in the ink bottle. 3 1 1 1 99 The writing on this page is very recent. It says "I, %s, have come to Spielburg to become a hero." 3 1 2 1 99 This entry was made several years ago. It says: 'Baronet Barnard von Spielburg killed a Troll near the Flying Falls on this 23rd day of Octember'. 3 1 3 1 99 The other pages record the exploits of the great adventurers of Spielburg's past. The names Wolfgang Abenteuer and Baron Stefan von Spielburg appear most often. 3 1 4 1 99 The remaining pages are blank, awaiting further tales of adventure. 3 4 0 1 99 You sign your name into the Adventurer's Log Book with a flourish. 3 4 1 1 99 But you've already done that! 4 1 0 1 99 The fine crystal chandelier lights the room. 4 4 0 1 99 You can't reach it. 5 1 0 1 99 The head is like a panther's, but with a strong human-like quality. It is still rather frightening. 5 1 0 2 99 The plaque reads: "Cheetaur -- slain by Wolfgang Abenteuer". 6 1 5 1 99 On the table is an old but ornate leather-bound book. There is also a quill pen in the ink bottle. 6 1 6 1 99 The table holds a pen, an inkwell, and the Adventurer's Guild Registration and Log Book. 6 4 0 1 99 The table is formed from fine fir wood. There's nothing you need here. 7 1 0 1 99 Even in death, this monster remains awesome. 7 1 0 2 99 The plaque reads: "Dragon -- slain by Baron Stefan von Spielburg". 8 1 0 1 99 The fire blazing cheerily in the fireplace helps warm the Guild Master's old bones. 8 4 0 1 99 You feel like you're frying your fingers. Forget it. 9 1 0 1 99 This crossbreed of eagle and lion could have torn a man apart when it was alive. 9 1 0 2 99 The plaque reads: "Gryphon -- slain by Wolfgang Abenteuer". 10 1 0 1 99 The plaque under the Moose says: "Courtesy of the Sierra Online Prop Dept." 11 1 0 1 99 The tapestry is so rotten, it would probably fall apart at the slightest touch. 11 4 0 1 99 The tapestry feels very old and very fragile. 12 0 0 1 99 This Adventurer's Guild Hall reminds you of the one in your home town. The traditional Moose head and other stuffed monsters (Saurus, Troll, Gryphon, Dragon, Cheetaur, and the terrible Antwerp) adorn the walls. 12 0 0 2 99 You see a registration book on the table, and the bulletin board full of job listings. The man seated near the window must be the Guild Master. He is snoring. 12 4 0 1 99 There is nothing here that you need, and the Guild Master may be more aware than he seems. 12 4 7 1 99 The Guild Hall would be barren if you took the trophies. Besides, they're out of reach. 13 1 0 1 99 You never saw a purple Saurus before you came to Spielburg, but it looks like a really stupid monster. 13 1 0 2 99 The plaque reads: "Saurus slain by Hans Halfwitten". 14 1 0 1 99 The view from here isn't exactly clear. 15 1 0 1 99 It looks like it must have been a particularly nasty Troll. You wouldn't want to meet him in a dark forest. 15 1 0 2 99 The plaque reads: "Troll slain by Wolfgang Abenteuer". 16 1 0 1 99 On the walls hang dusty, moth-eaten monster heads. You recognize the purple Saurus, the Troll, the Gryphon, and the Dragon. 17 1 0 1 99 The window looks out over the countryside. 17 4 0 1 99 The window doesn't open. 18 0 8 1 1 "Welcome back! It is good to see you again. So many adventurers never return. Someday, you and I will go on an adventure together." 18 0 9 1 1 "Hrrmph! Ahem! Yes, as I was saying... Where were we?" 18 0 10 1 1 "Oh, what a glorious day it was! I... Oh, hello there!" 18 0 11 1 1 "You fiendish witch! I will have you... Oh, it's you, my friend!" 18 0 12 1 1 "Oh, Barnard, bravest of the brave, you cannot be gone from us so soon... What? What? You're still here, my fellow adventurer?" 18 0 13 1 1 "ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ." 18 0 14 1 1 "Ach! I was so busy I didn't notice you come in. Welcome, welcome! It is so seldom that we have new adventurers here. Most people think this valley is cursed!" 18 1 0 1 99 It looks like this old Guild Master doesn't do too much adventuring any more. Still, he looks like he was plenty tough in his day, and he probably has many a tale to tell. 18 2 15 1 1 Adventurers 18 2 16 1 1 Antwerp 18 2 17 1 1 Baba Yaga 18 2 18 1 1 Bakery 18 2 19 1 1 Baron 18 2 20 1 1 Bulletin Board 18 2 21 1 1 Brigands 18 2 22 1 1 Butcher 18 2 23 1 1 Castle 18 2 24 1 1 Centaur 18 2 25 1 1 Cheetaur 18 2 26 1 1 Curse 18 2 27 1 1 Baron's Daughter 18 2 28 1 1 Dragon 18 2 29 1 1 Forests 18 2 30 1 1 Dry Goods 18 2 31 1 1 Goblins 18 2 32 1 1 Goon 18 2 33 1 1 Guild Hall 18 2 34 1 1 Hans Halfwitten 18 2 35 1 1 Healer 18 2 36 1 1 Hero 18 2 37 1 1 Magic Shop 18 2 38 1 1 Mantrays 18 2 39 1 1 Farmer's Mart 18 2 40 1 1 Guild Master 18 2 41 1 1 Cheetaur 18 2 42 1 1 Monsters 18 2 43 1 1 Moose 18 2 44 1 1 Mountains 18 2 45 1 1 Name 18 2 46 1 1 Ogres 18 2 47 1 1 Otto 18 2 48 1 1 Reward 18 2 49 1 1 Saurus Rex 18 2 50 1 1 Saurus 18 2 51 1 1 Schultz Meistersson 18 2 52 1 1 Baron's Son 18 2 53 1 1 Spielburg 18 2 54 1 1 Tavern 18 2 55 1 1 Tourists 18 2 56 1 1 Town 18 2 57 1 1 Troll 18 2 58 1 1 Trophies 18 2 59 1 1 Saurus 18 2 60 1 1 Troll 18 2 61 1 1 Waterfalls 18 2 62 1 1 Yorick 18 2 63 1 99 The guildmaster appears to be hard of hearing. Perhaps you should get closer. 18 2 64 1 1 "Ach, I was so busy I did not notice you come into the Adventurer's Guild Hall. Welcome, welcome, it is so seldom we have new adventurers here. Most people think this valley is cursed." 18 2 65 1 1 "Hrrmph! Ahem! Yes, as I was saying... Where were we?" 18 2 66 1 1 "Oh, what a glorious day it was! I... Oh, hello there." 18 2 67 1 1 "Then she turned around and I was staring into the biggest... Oh, it's you, my friend." 18 2 68 1 1 "It was just yesterday that I drew my sword and started out... Or was that the day before? No, then last week... Why, What was I talking about?" 18 4 0 1 99 Try getting a little closer. 18 5 15 1 1 "Did I ever tell you about the time when Schultz and I rid this valley of Antwerps? Ja, we were real adventurers then, and this was a real Guild Hall. Now we are just old men and this is just a place to tell old stories." 18 5 16 1 1 "This valley was overrun by those odd monsters one year. Schultz and I fought long and hard to rid the valley of the things. We might have failed even so, had it not been for those two peculiar tourists who came to our aid." 18 5 17 1 1 "She is the center of our problems, I think. Baba Yaga is a powerful Ogre. Baron von Spielburg tried to force her to leave this valley, but she cursed him." 18 5 17 2 1 "Now the Baron has lost everything but his land, and I don't know how long he will keep that. What our valley needs is a Hero." 18 5 18 1 1 "I think the Bakery is almost always closed now. The Baker tries to stay away from his wife." 18 5 19 1 1 "Baron von Spielburg was once a brave protector of our valley. We used to adventure together when I was younger." 18 5 19 2 1 "No brigand or monster would dare show his face here if the Baron had not angered Baba Yaga. Now it is said he goes nowhere and sees no one." 18 5 20 1 1 "Over on the wall over there is where the jobs are posted for adventurers. Some have been there a long time now. There just aren't too many good adventurers around here, lately." 18 5 21 1 1 "There is a reward for anyone who can stop the brigands by capturing or killing the leaders of the brigands. You should read the bulletin board for more information." 18 5 22 1 1 "I don't think the Butcher Shop is open much any more, either." 18 5 23 1 1 "The castle is just north of the Healer's house." 18 5 24 1 1 "There are not too many Centaurs in this land. Heinrich and Hilde are good people." 18 5 25 1 1 "Watch out for Cheetaurs! I bare the scars of my fight with the one on the wall to this day. Still, it is stuffed, and I am still alive." 18 5 26 1 1 "Ja, with the Baron losing his son and daughter, Baba Yaga, all the monsters, and now the brigands, it has just been one thing after another." 18 5 27 1 1 "Elsa was a beautiful eight year old child with blond hair and sky blue eyes. She was her father the Baron's joy. Ten years ago, she was carried off by something which flew over the wall and away with her." 18 5 27 2 1 "The search for her lasted many years, but at last everyone gave up except the Baron's Jester, Yorick." 18 5 28 1 1 "One day years ago, a pair of dragons tried to take over our valley. We adventurers rode out to meet them." 18 5 28 2 1 "I can still see Stefan von Spielburg charging forward on his black horse. He slew that dragon whose head you see on the wall, and the other one flew off." 18 5 28 3 1 "I hear people see that other dragon flying high overhead sometimes, but it has never dared to attack us again." 18 5 29 1 1 "The forests are full of monsters and strange creatures." 18 5 29 2 1 "There are some nice waterfalls to the southeast of town. They fill Mirror Lake, which is lovely, but icy cold all year round." 18 5 30 1 1 "Caspar at the store would like to be an adventurer, or so he says. He spends too much time dreaming and not enough doing, I think." 18 5 31 1 1 "Goblins are not tough, but when they gang up, they can take out an unwary adventurer." 18 5 32 1 1 "A Goon is a lot like an Ogre, not as tough, but a little smarter. The Sheriff's Otto and Crusher at the tavern are both Goons." 18 5 33 1 1 "This is where an adventurer can find out who needs someone brave and courageous. There are many jobs on the bulletin board over there. It is also a good place to talk about adventures on a cold afternoon." 18 5 33 2 1 "We used to play cards here once a week as well, but there are too few adventurers in Spielburg anymore. They all died from monsters or brigands, or they just got too old." 18 5 34 1 1 "He wasn't much of an adventurer, but he did manage to kill a Saurus before he made the mistake of tangling with a Troll." 18 5 35 1 1 "Her house is just north of the town gate. She's a nice woman." 18 5 36 1 1 "A real Hero is someone who didn't start out strong or powerful, but uses his courage and brains and skills to become the best he can be." 18 5 37 1 1 "I don't know much about magic, but the woman who runs that place scares me." 18 5 38 1 1 "Those weird things are magical. They are best avoided." 18 5 39 1 1 "The Farmer's Mart is run by the Centaurs, Heinrich Pferdefedern and his daughter, Hilde." 18 5 40 1 1 "I am supposed to keep track of all the adventurers and make sure they sign their names in the log. There was a time when I would go out and rescue foolhardy adventurers who got into too much trouble, but I don't get out much now." 18 5 41 1 1 "Cheetaurs are ferocious creatures that charge out of nowhere and try to tear you to shreds. Sometimes they succeed." 18 5 42 1 1 "You can see some of the types of monsters that live around here if you look at our walls. There are Trolls, Griffins, Cheetaurs, Mantrays, and Goblins wandering in the woods." 18 5 42 2 1 "I hear there are even some Ogres and Saurus Rexes back in this valley. There was a time when Schultz and I had gotten rid of most of the monsters around here, but we are just too old for that now." 18 5 43 1 1 "That was the most vicious moose I ever saw. Nearly bit my nose off." 18 5 44 1 1 "The Mountains surrounding this valley are very high. Snow covers the tops all year long. The only way out of Spielburg Valley is through the pass, though I hear that it is blocked by snow again." 18 5 45 1 1 "I am Wolfgang Abenteuer, the Guild Master of this hall." 18 5 46 1 1 "Ogres are a lot like Goons, but even meaner. Not as bright, though." 18 5 47 1 1 "I like Otto, even if he is a Goon. Schultz has him almost trained." 18 5 48 1 1 "You need to talk to either the Baron or the Healer about that." 18 5 49 1 1 "Don't mistake those things for Sauruses. When they come at you, it is sometimes best just to run away." 18 5 50 1 1 "I remember when Hans killed the one there. It was a tough fight, for him." 18 5 51 1 1 "Schultz Meistersson and I have been friends for a long time. He, too, was once a real adventurer. Now he is just the Sheriff of this town." 18 5 52 1 1 "Now, there was a hero, and worthy of the name Barnard von Spielburg. He rode off to hunt one morning five years ago and his horse returned with large claw marks on it. No sign Barnard's body was ever found." 18 5 53 1 1 "Spielburg Town is small now that most people have been driven off by the Brigands. This is such a pretty place, too, with the mountains, forests, and waterfalls." 18 5 54 1 1 "I have never liked that place. The bartender smiles all the time, but he is not very friendly. Crusher lives up to his name. He is nasty even for a Goon." 18 5 55 1 1 "They said they were from some place called Andromeda. Must be someplace south of here, I guess. They certainly were odd." 18 5 56 1 1 "This town used to be a thriving city before the brigands drove most of the people off." 18 5 57 1 1 "Trolls are very tough. Fortunately, they only come out at night. The woods are very dangerous at night." 18 5 58 1 1 "Schultz and I killed most of the monsters on those walls." 18 5 59 1 1 "The Saurus is a monster easy to avoid and easy to kill for a skilled adventurer." 18 5 60 1 1 "I remember the day I killed one. It was the biggest I had ever seen. It put up a tough fight, but I was tougher. You can see the results on the wall." 18 5 61 1 1 "There are some nice waterfalls to the southeast of town. They fill Mirror Lake, which is lovely, but icy cold all year round." 18 5 62 1 1 "Yorick was a funny little man, but brave. He swore he would spend his life searching for the Baron's Elsa." 19 1 0 1 99 A pile of wood is stacked against the wall. 19 4 0 1 99 The firewood will serve more purpose here than in your pack.

The items in this shop are designed for those skilled in the use of magic. " 28 0 10 2 20 "We have very little for ones such as you who have not been initiated, but what we have could prove useful." 28 0 11 1 20 "So, you return to my shop. Ask of me what you will, but keep it to the point." 28 5 12 1 20 "An Aura is a Spell of protection surrounding something. The town is still protected by the Aura cast by the great spellcaster Erana." 28 5 13 1 20 "She is a powerful and wicked hag. You would be wise to avoid her. She cursed the Baron von Spielburg when he tried to drive her away." 28 5 14 1 20 "He was once a great leader of this land until he was foolish enough to anger Baba Yaga." 28 5 15 1 20 "This is Baba Yaga's curse, cast upon the Baron years ago:" 28 5 15 2 20 "'Upon von Spielburg and all his clan, this the curse I now demand: What I Will shall come full measure, so shall ye lose all that ye treasure.'" 28 5 15 3 20 "There is always a way to break a curse; possibly Erasmus knows more about this." 28 5 16 1 20 "Damiano is both my familiar and my friend. We share our lives and our magic." 28 5 17 1 20 "That is the spell that lets you cast a magical flame upon your enemy. The spell scroll will cost you 60 silver." 28 5 18 1 20 "Erasmus makes a point of studying the effects of Magic upon mortals. There is little about Magic in this area that Erasmus does not know." 28 5 19 1 20 "Erana was a powerful Spellcaster who lived long ago. She brought peace to this valley. Even now her spell protects this town from violence or foul magic." 28 5 19 2 20 "Her final resting place is due north of town, and it is a place of both safety and healing. It is known as Erana's Peace." 28 5 20 1 20 "Erasmus is a Wizard and a Spellcaster who knows much about this area. He lives in a tower northeast of town at the top of a steep mountain called Zauberberg." 28 5 20 2 20 "He can be very helpful if approached properly, but he has a strange sense of humor." 28 5 21 1 20 "We are a people of Power and Magic, and live in the forests far beyond the mountains to the west." 28 5 22 1 20 "A Familiar is a creature of magical abilities which has been summoned to serve the Wizard." 28 5 22 2 20 "The Summoning of a Familiar is a most powerful spell, and can be cast but once. It binds the Wizard and the Familiar to the ends of their lives." 28 5 22 3 20 "The more powerful the Wizard, the more powerful the Familiar, although you cannot always judge power by a Familiar's shape." 28 5 23 1 20 "The Fetch Spell allows you to lift or lower a lightweight object from a distance. The spell scroll will cost you 40 silvers." 28 5 24 1 20 "The Healing Potion will cost you 50 silver. It is made by the healer outside of town." 28 5 25 1 20 "Master the Arts Arcane, use those skills to vanquish the evil curse, and you will become a true Hero!" 28 5 26 1 20 "Baba Yaga's hut is magical. It stands on chicken legs, and you must know the rhyme to enter." 28 5 27 1 20 "When you have mastered nine spells, have the Power to cast all, and proven yourself worthy by accomplishing a great deed, then you must undergo initiation to become full Wizard." 28 5 27 2 20 "There is a place in the distant south where you must journey, but first you must become a hero here." 28 5 28 1 20 "There are many entrances to the Halls of Magical Mastery in the south." 28 5 28 2 20 "After you have gained skill and a good reputation in Magic, you should journey south." 28 5 28 3 20 "If you are indeed worthy of being a Wizard, you will find a way to those Halls." 28 5 29 1 20 "If you have the skill of Magic, you can learn the way to cast spells by reading magical scrolls." 28 5 29 2 20 "Without the skill, you have no Power. The more you practice spell casting, the greater you shall become. " 28 5 30 1 20 "It is a spell that allows you at first to unfasten simple locks and knots. As you gain in skill, you can even open doors with it. The spell scroll will cost you 30 silver." 28 5 31 1 20 "To the north of the town, surrounded by the mountains, is an Alpine valley that is rumored to be the final resting place for Erana, although no one is certain what happened to her." 28 5 31 2 20 "It is certainly a magical place of safety. There is also supposed to be a gift there for Magic Users who are clever enough to find it." 28 5 32 1 20 "A true Magic User has the innate affinity for Magic. There is also the ability to store Power, which ordinary mortals do not have." 28 5 33 1 20 "We have potions of Healing, Vigor, and Power for purchase from our shop." 28 5 34 1 20 "Power is the essence of Magic, that which the Wizard shapes and is shaped by." 28 5 35 1 20 "The Power Potion restores your magical energy, and costs 75 silver." 28 5 36 1 20 "I have no interest in entering Baba Yaga's hut and therefore do not know the rhyme." 28 5 37 1 20 "The scrolls we sell are magical. You have but to read the spell, and you will learn it." 28 5 38 1 20 "What I sell here are merely tools to help those who have power." 28 5 38 2 20 "You may purchase restorative potions and scrolls from which you may learn spells, if you have the potential." 28 5 39 1 20 "We sell several Magical Spells on study scrolls. You may purchase Fire Dart for 60 silver, Fetch for 40 silver, or the Open Spell for 30 silver." 28 5 39 2 20 "I also know you can find a spell if you learn the secret of Erana's Peace." 28 5 40 1 20 "There is much magic in this world for those who know how to use it. There is magic in this little town, and a good deal of magic in this valley." 28 5 41 1 20 "There is an Aura protecting this town from danger. Within most of its walls, there can be no act of violence or cruel magic. Even so, it is prudent to avoid dark places." 28 5 42 1 20 "There is much power in this valley, and it attracts those who use magic. I am here, Erasmus has his house on Zauberberg, and even Baba Yaga has her hut cooped up somewhere around here." 28 5 43 1 20 "Vigor potions restore your Stamina after you have exerted yourself. They cost 25 silver each." 28 5 44 1 20 "A Wizard is one who both shapes Magic and is shaped by it. Erasmus and I are the only Wizards in this valley." 28 5 45 1 20 "That is the Spell that lets you place magical energy upon a weapon. The energy will be released as magical damage when you hit your enemy." 28 5 46 1 20 "I am both human and Faery Folk. I draw my power from both. My name is Zara. This is my shop." 28 4 0 1 99 It's a good thing you can't get close to Zara.

The shopkeeper appears to ignore you while he reads a book. 9 4 0 1 99 Try paying the clerk for what you want to buy. 9 1 2 1 99 Behind the counter are weapons, armor, and such equipment as you would more often find in an "Adventurer's Shop". 9 1 2 2 99 On the counter and on the shelves are assortments of canned goods, honey jars, sewing items, and odds and ends that people in a small town would need. 9 20 0 1 21 "Please don't throw things in here. You might break a flask." 9 10 0 1 99 You should give your money to the shop owner. 10 1 0 1 99 This is the door to the back storage room. 11 1 0 1 99 A large, lumpy sack sits by the wall. 12 1 0 1 99 Those look like oversized shields suitable for Ogres, Goons, and Frost Giants. 13 1 0 1 99 The barrels appear to be filled with flour and salt and look rather heavy. 14 0 3 1 21 "Oh, I'm sorry! I didn't notice you coming in." 14 0 4 1 21 "My, you look like an adventurer! We don't see too many around here. The brigands tend to get rid of most adventurers before they make it to town." 14 0 4 2 21 "I do try to stock some things adventurers can use. I actually would rather be an adventurer than a shopkeeper, you see." 14 0 4 3 21 "My items are pretty ordinary, though. You probably already have most of them if you've done any adventuring at all." 14 5 5 1 21 "You can get really good protection from my chain mail armor. It's very heavy though, and I would have to charge you 500 silvers for it." 14 5 6 1 21 "I always wanted to be an adventurer. I read about them all all the time. The book I was just reading is about adventuring." 14 5 7 1 21 "Oh, this book? It's about an adventurer who is trying to become a Hero. The title is 'Quest for Glory: A Hero's Death'." 14 5 8 1 21 "I don't like to talk about other people behind their backs." 14 5 9 1 21 "Ah! The use of the dagger is a most skillful art. Actually, this particular weapon is longer than most, but still easily concealable. A bargain at 20 silvers." 14 5 10 1 21 "Unfortunately, I have only standard weapons and equipment. I carry daggers and chain armor. Maybe someday I'll be able to carry magic ones, though." 14 5 11 1 21 "It's a very good idea to carry an empty flask or two, in case you want to pick up a liquid or something else that needs a container. Our flasks are a great bargain at 2 silvers each." 14 5 12 1 21 "Adventuring rations aren't the tastiest food in the world, but they will keep you healthy and alert as you go along. A pack of 10 rations will cost you just 5 silvers." 14 5 13 1 21 "Hilde sells fine produce for a reasonable price." 14 5 14 1 21 "Why, that's me! Kaspar!" 14 5 15 1 21 "The Sheriff and Otto protect this town. The Sheriff used to be a real adventurer, you know!" 14 1 0 1 99 The shopkeeper is a small, balding man who wears glasses. He looks as if he can barely lift the book he is reading. Judging from his clothes, he is fairly well-to-do. 14 10 16 1 21 "Here you are; thank you for your patronage." 14 10 16 2 21 "Thank you, my adventurer friend! I hope this serves you well." 14 10 17 1 21 "You won't be needing your old leather armor anymore. I shall give you a 50 silver trade-in discount." 14 10 18 1 99 As you count your money, you realize that you don't have enough to purchase this particular item. 14 2 5 1 21 Chain Armor 14 2 6 1 21 Adventurer 14 2 7 1 21 Book 14 2 8 1 21 Brigand 14 2 9 1 21 Dagger 14 2 10 1 21 Equipment 14 2 11 1 21 Flask 14 2 12 1 21 Food 14 2 13 1 21 Hilde 14 2 14 1 21 Name 14 2 19 1 99 Either the shopkeeper can't hear you or he's ignoring you.

1 1 0 1 99 The gate is securely barred. It's apparently an Otto-matic gate, since it would take a Goon to open it. 1 4 0 1 99 Leave the climbing to those who know how. 1 4 0 2 99 You'd better not try to climb the wall any more right now. You've been at this long enough that someone is likely to notice. 1 4 0 3 99 The wall is too smooth to climb with your level of skill, but keep practicing. 1 17 0 1 99 The gate is securely barred. There's no lock for you to open. 2 1 1 1 99 The shades are drawn, and it appears that the Inn is closed. 2 1 2 1 99 The windows glow from the light inside. The sign reads "Hero's Tale Inn". 2 4 1 1 99 The door is bolted. 2 16 1 1 99 You wooden stab that poor defenseless door, wood you? 2 26 1 1 99 Good try, but that isn't an inn key. (It must be off-key.) 3 1 0 1 99 You see the cheery, inviting glow of a hearth fire within the inn. 4 1 0 1 99 It's an empty jail cell. Fortunately, you're on the outside (at the moment). 4 4 0 1 99 That's the jail cell door. If you really want to go in, try stealing from someone and getting caught. (This may not be the best way to become a Hero, though.) 5 1 0 1 99 This must be some tough town when they put bars on the jailhouse window. 5 4 0 1 99 The only way you can break this jailhouse window is with a jailhouse rock. 6 1 1 1 99 The sign says "Out to lunch." The barber must keep odd lunch hours. 6 1 2 1 99 There's a sign on the door of the barber shop. It says "Out to lunch." 6 4 0 1 99 The door is locked. 7 1 0 1 99 The sign reads "Hero's Tale Inn" 8 1 0 1 99 The Sheriff's office doubles as a jail for the town and a hangout for the Sheriff and the Goon. 9 1 0 1 99 The Sign of the Scissors above the door indicates that the building contains a Barber Shop. 10 1 0 1 99 The town gate is standing wide open, as it does every day. It is made of sturdy logs. 10 4 0 1 99 That's the Sheriff's job. 11 1 0 1 99 There's more than a hint of Ogre about this strange and bulky character. He seems cheerful, though. 11 57 0 1 41 "Otto only expresses himself physically." 12 0 1 1 99 Spielburg remains colorful, even at night. 12 0 2 1 99 This seems like a quiet little town. On the porch ahead of you are two people. The standing one is large, rather ugly, and playing with a yo-yo. The seated person smoking a pipe looks like he might be the Sheriff. 12 0 3 1 41 "Just a friendly suggestion, but whatever you do, don't drink the Dragon's Breath. Not even Otto can drink Dragon's Breath!" 12 0 4 1 99 The man with the pipe greets you. 12 0 4 2 41 "Welcome to our town. You are lucky to have made it down from the mountains before the snow blocked the pass again. It's gotten pretty dangerous outside of town, I understand." 12 0 4 3 41 "Many monsters have been trapped around here with the late snow. Between them and the brigands, we certainly could use a Hero around here." 12 0 4 4 41 "I am Sheriff Schultz Meistersson. This is Otto Von Goon, my assistant." 12 0 4 5 41 "Good luck in your quest." 12 0 5 1 99 However, this was not a good place to sleep. You're stiff and sore all over, and your wallet feels very light. 12 0 5 2 99 As safe as our streets are, you still should not sleep on them. It is a good way to get robbed. 13 1 0 1 99 This is the door to the Sheriff's office. 13 4 1 1 99 You'd better not. The Goon would probably clobber you with his yo-yo if he thought you were going into the Sheriff's office without permission. 13 4 2 1 99 The door appears to be locked, and breaking into the Sheriff's office might evoke the wrath of Otto von Goon. 14 1 0 1 99 Schultz appears to be an affable old coot, content to smoke his pipe. There's a hardness behind his eyes, however, that gives you reason to believe that he's no pushover. 14 2 6 1 41 Adventure 14 2 7 1 41 The Baron 14 2 8 1 41 The Brigands 14 2 9 1 41 The Castle 14 2 10 1 41 Danger 14 2 11 1 41 The Guild Hall 14 2 12 1 41 The Inn 14 2 13 1 41 Magic 14 2 14 1 41 The Merchant 14 2 15 1 41 Monsters 14 2 16 1 41 The Mountain 14 2 17 1 41 Name 14 2 18 1 41 Otto 14 2 19 1 41 Prisoners 14 2 21 1 41 Sheriff 14 2 22 1 41 Town 14 2 23 1 41 Treasure 14 2 24 1 41 Wolfgang 14 4 0 1 99 Unhand that sheriff! 14 5 6 1 41 "You'll need to talk to the Baron about that. Or go ask Wolfgang down at the Guild Hall, which is just down the street." 14 5 6 2 41 "So maybe you're going to be a hero? Well, we could surely use one around here, what with all the brigands." 14 5 7 1 41 "Baron Stefan keeps mostly to himself at his castle north of here. We haven't seen him here in town for years." 14 5 8 1 41 "There's a whole band of brigands hiding out somewhere in the mountains around us. They robbed a merchant just last week. Got a fair amount of treasure, I hear." 14 5 9 1 41 "Baron Stefan keeps mostly to himself at his castle north of here. We haven't seen him here in town for years." 14 5 10 1 41 "My friend, this world's filled with dangers. Sometimes I think it might be better to choose your danger, rather than sitting around, waiting for it, as I seem to do." 14 5 10 2 41 "But enough of this philosophical rambling. I am content enough to be Sheriff of Spielburg." 14 5 11 1 41 "The Guild Hall is at the southwest corner of town. If you're looking for work, that's a good place to go." 14 5 12 1 41 "Go talk to the Innkeeper. He will help you there." 14 5 13 1 41 "Just next to the Inn is a small Magic Shop. The owner, Zara, will let you in if you have some abilities in that area. She's a strange one, all right!" 14 5 14 1 41 "The one who was robbed? He's staying at the Inn, I believe." 14 5 15 1 41 "The monsters come down from the mountains every winter, but they're usually gone by now. The Baron just doesn't have enough men to handle them." 14 5 15 2 41 "Wolfgang is the one to talk to about monsters. He's had a lot of experience with them." 14 5 16 1 41 "You should know. You came down from there." 14 5 17 1 41 "I am Sheriff Schultz Meistersson, and this is Otto von Goon, my assistant." 14 5 18 1 41 "Otto is a big help to me. He's very smart for a Goon. His prisoners only suffer a few broken bones when he grabs them." 14 5 18 2 41 "It took a bit of doing to teach him to bring prisoners back alive, but he hardly ever forgets, now." 14 5 19 1 41 "It's simple. When somone breaks the law, and we catch them, we hold them prisoner." 14 5 20 1 41 "There's a whole band of brigands hiding out somewhere in the mountains around us. They robbed a merchant just last week. Got a fair amount of treasure, I hear." 14 5 21 1 41 "A policeman's lot is not a happy one." 14 5 22 1 41 "This town was named after the Barons of Spielburg. It used to be a lively place to be, before the brigands came and drove all the business away." 14 5 22 2 41 "You can find a place to stay at the Inn next door. You can learn about jobs available at the GuildHall down the street. If you are interested in magic, you should visit the Magic Shop. There is still plenty to do and see here in Spielburg." 14 5 23 1 41 "Obtaining treasure involves putting yourself in danger. If you're brave, foolish, or lucky, you might get some treasure." 14 5 24 1 41 "Wolfgang, down at the Guild hall, is the one to talk to about monsters. He's had a lot of experience with them." 15 1 0 1 99 The ugly statue seems to be watching you. 15 4 0 1 99 As you lay your hands on the ugly statue, a swirling miasma of emotions overcomes you. You feel the sculptor's pain and suffering, his disgust with his condition, and the conflicting urges to enjoy and flee from his talent. 15 4 0 2 99 No, that's not it. The real reason for the disgust you feel has more to do with the pigeon droppings on your hands. You surreptitiously wipe them clean. 16 1 0 1 99 The handsome statue seems to be watching you. 16 4 0 1 99 The statue feels cold and clean, and smells faintly of soap. 17 1 0 1 99 If this is the town water supply, no wonder nobody ever comes here. 18 1 0 1 99 Gosh! That's an authentic "whamma blamma three scoops of mana hilarious gregarious floats in the airious" yoyo! 18 4 0 1 99 Are you crazy?

Besides the Chief Thief's seemingly endless collection, there are two matched sets with differently-colored hilts for playing Dag-Nab-It. 10 4 0 1 99 Stealing from a dagger-throwing thief? That's a dangerous -- and stupid -- idea! 11 1 0 1 99 The opening in the door has a wire grate on it, but there is space below it where objects can be passed through.

That's a dangerous -- and stupid -- idea! 17 1 0 1 99 Even thieves get thirsty. 18 0 46 1 99 This dark, seedy place is less than you expected of a Thieves' Guild. You feel uneasy about the sinister mood here. 18 0 46 2 99 The man seated by the table greets you with a scowl, Crusher is his usual, amiable self, and you can't quite make out what lurks behind that massive door. 18 0 47 1 99 The door is locked, and Boris won't let you in. 18 1 0 1 99 The floor is surprisingly clean compared to the bar above. The plaster is chipping in several places. This place gives you the creeps. 18 4 0 1 99 You're probably wondering if there is any honor among thieves. 18 28 0 1 99 "That ring belongs to the Healer.

You can find your way out, I'm sure. But make it fast, before my dagger slips." 8 10 26 1 15 "Hey! You don't have enough money to be worth our while.

The magic spell that possesses her makes her an invincible warrior. 1 0 63 1 99 One thrust... and that's it??? 1 0 64 1 99 That was a little too much for you. You collapse from exhaustion and die. 1 0 65 1 99 Death from Overwork 1 0 66 1 99 You need to guard your flanks before a frontal assault is possible. 1 0 67 1 99 A side of Hero 1 0 68 1 99 Had you been healthier, you probably could have survived that fall. In your weakened condition, however, you succumbed to your injuries. 1 0 69 1 99 Your figure remains still and silent. 1 0 70 1 99 I score that about a 3. Those diving lessons were a complete waste. Maybe you should have taken up bowling. 1 0 71 1 99 An abridged ending.... 1 0 72 1 99 ... as you realize those large porcupines down here are really other heroes who collected arrows the hard way. 1 0 73 1 99 Quills run up your spine.... 1 0 74 1 99 A small sign reads "Booby Trap." The brigands approach to see the booby they've caught. You think to yourself, "If it looks like a trap, and it feels like a trap, maybe it IS a trap." 1 0 75 1 99 The old "rug over the pit" trick. 1 0 76 1 99 You're hopelessly outnumbered. You should have left this room when you had a chance. 1 0 77 1 99 Molasses in January. 1 0 78 1 99 It seems a shame to have such a promising career go up in flames (assuming she decides to flambe you). Wouldn't it have been better just to do a small favor for such a sweet little old Ogress? 1 0 79 1 99 Of all the lazy...! 1 0 80 1 99 Next time you are asked a question by someone who has just turned you into a frog, perhaps you should be more polite. It's better than being fricasseed! 1 0 81 1 99 Now you're really in the soup! 1 0 82 1 99 Was it something I said? 1 0 83 1 99 The End of the Trail... 1 0 84 1 99 As the ghosts suck the life out of your body, and you crumple into the dust of the old graveyard, you think unspeakable thoughts of torture and torment directed at vicious programmers and insidious game designers. (But please buy our next game anyway!) 1 0 85 1 99 Oh-h-h-h-h-h-h! 1 0 86 1 99 Next time, pick on someone your own size. 1 0 87 1 99 The bigger they come, the harder they hit 1 0 88 1 99 Obviously, getting in the goon's way was not one of your brighter ideas. You've had it now! 1 0 89 1 99 Criminal carelessness. 1 0 90 1 99 You hear a guard yell for help. Four guards inside the barracks grab their weapons and overwhelm you. As they drag you into the castle and down into the dungeon, you realize that was not quite the right thing to do. 1 0 91 1 99 Good Guard! 1 0 92 1 99 No sooner do you draw your weapon than the guards have their weapons out and quickly disarm you. They promptly drag you into the castle and down into the dungeon, which is not a very likely spot for the attainment of hero status. 1 0 93 1 99 En Garde! 1 0 94 1 99 And dead... You feel dead, too. In your weakened condition, you succumbed to a mild-mannered hermit's propensity for Tarzan imitations. Back up and play it again, Sam. 1 0 95 1 99 ... and thin... 1 0 96 1 99 Next time you swing at innocent inanimate objects, make sure you are strong enough to survive when they swing back at you! 1 0 97 1 99 Your plan seems to have backfired 1 0 98 1 99 It's hard to be a hero when you're sitting in a jail cell. The Sheriff apologized for your broken arm, but he did warn you (didn't he?) that Otto was only partly trained. Now, you'll probably be more careful when you're robbing someone. 1 0 99 1 99 Criminal carelessness. 1 0 100 1 99 Well, it looks like the Dryad really made you eat dirt. You're the spitting image of a Spirea plant, and you'll be hanging around for a long, long time. 1 0 101 1 99 Plant it, fella! 1 0 102 1 99 You are staggered by the Dryad's spell. She appears to enjoy having lots of bucks. 1 0 103 1 99 Oh, deer. 1 0 104 1 99 It takes too long to draw your weapon against someone with a dagger in his hand. It doesn't pay to try to fight someone who uses poisoned daggers. 1 0 105 1 99 Your figure remains still and silent. 1 0 106 1 99 Unfortunately, you push it in too far, causing yourself a cerebral hemorrhage. Guess you should have been practicing on less difficult locks. 1 0 107 1 99 The surgeon general warns . . . 1 0 108 1 99 Congratulations! You've just won a gold medal in the log jump. Posthumously. 1 0 109 1 99 So much for your endorsements.... 1 0 110 1 99 When the Little Old Lady awakens to see what's going on, you have to concede to her (through lips that are as raw as hamburger) that you've been licked! She summons the Sheriff and his goon, Otto. 1 0 111 1 99 What a cute little kitty! 1 0 112 1 99 The Little Old Lady's cries finally bring the Sheriff and Otto to her rescue. They find you pinned to the floor, unconscious, dreaming deliriously of death by sandpaper. 1 0 113 1 99 Better stay downstairs next time. 1 0 114 1 99 You're mad as heck, and you're not going to take it anymore. As a matter of fact, you CAN'T take it anymore. Restore your strength and health and try again. 1 0 115 1 99 You're the Fall Guy again. 1 0 116 1 99 "In matters of magic, I am your master Seek not to slay me with Sendings so small." 1 0 117 1 99 Just because he's big doesn't mean he's stupid! 1 0 118 1 99 Because you failed to meet Baba Yaga's DEADline, her curse turns you into a frog on the spot, and you are forced to live out your years dodging Sauruses (Saurii?) with large feet. 1 0 119 1 99 Curses! 1 0 120 1 99 That's funny. I could have sworn I warned you about eating too many Magic Mushrooms. Your mind permanently warped, you die a garishly polka-dotted death. 1 0 121 1 99 Where did all the pretty horses go? 1 0 122 1 99 While you were asleep, something decided to make a meal of you. You're not sure what it was, but you don't really care at this point. You shouldn't go to sleep where the creatures of the night can get you. 1 0 123 1 99 Night Gaunt Got Ya. 1 0 124 1 99 You're hopelessly surrounded. You should have taken quicker action against these Knochelkopfs.

When at last you come to your senses, you find yourself in a jail cell. By the time you get out of here, you'll be too old to be a hero. 1 0 131 1 99 Criminal carelessness 1 0 132 1 99 You are overcome by the power of the Kobold Wizard's magic. You need either to practice your skills or to plan a better attack strategy. 1 0 133 1 99 Struck By Lightning 1 0 134 1 99 You never dreamed a feather pillow could be so HARD! Or was it the floor? You also didn't realize how hard it is for a thief to be a Hero. The Thief of Baghdad never had this kind of luck! 1 0 135 1 99 Criminal carelessness 1 0 136 1 99 The old ticker just couldn't keep going. Maybe you shouldn't have missed the annual visit to your local Healer. 1 0 137 1 99 Your figure remains still and silent. 1 0 138 1 99 Before you confront someone who is obviously more powerful than you are, give yourself a chance to reflect. 1 0 139 1 99 Baba Yaga says you have good taste. 1 0 140 1 99 Maybe you really shouldn't have tried the Dragon's Breath! Better luck next time, and we hope you saved your game. 1 0 141 1 99 Talk about a "fiery brew" 1 0 142 1 99 That's it!!! You've hurt you for the last time! 1 0 143 1 99 You searched for silver, but all you found was iron. Iron arrowheads, that is. 1 0 144 1 99 Greedy, greedy... 1 0 145 1 99 Naughty, naughty. The Sheriff and Otto arrive on the scene and arrest you for "blatant power-gaming". You have to *work* at it to become a *real* hero! 1 0 146 1 99 Try to stay "in character" next time 1 0 147 1 99 The brigands oblige you by making your pleasant rest permanent. 1 0 148 1 99 Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z 1 0 149 1 99 You curl up for a nice little nap. The brigands break down the door. You wake up dead. 1 0 150 1 99 He who hesitates... 1 0 151 1 99 Uh oh. You made too much noise. The Sheriff and Otto arrive on the scene and arrest you for "criminal carelessness". Work a little faster next time! 1 0 152 1 99 Nobody said this job was easy 1 0 153 1 99 He saw you casting a spell, and he already had a dagger in his hand. It doesn't pay to try to fight someone who uses poisoned daggers. 1 0 154 1 99 Hold the arsenic, please 1 0 155 1 99 There must be reasons to stop and let five archers draw beads on you while you attempt to cast a spell, but none come to mind. 1 0 156 1 99 Wear any targets lately? 1 0 157 1 99 You really brought down the house! Too bad you were under it at the time. 1 0 158 1 99 Bad strategy! 1 0 159 1 99 That's it! You've hurt you for the last time! 1 0 160 1 99 They say that the cops don't catch any rocket scientists. Well, they sure didn't this time! 1 0 161 1 99 Criminal stupidity 1 0 162 1 99 Hey, man, like, when it's time to swing, it's time to SWING! 1 0 163 1 99 No sense of rhythm 1 0 164 1 99 That hermit seems to know his "Trigger" spells pretty well. He sure pulled the trigger on you (not to mention the plug) by teleporting you to the top of the falls without a barrel. 1 0 165 1 99 You're all wet 1 0 166 1 99 Didn't anyone warn you about eating other people's food? Death by Toadstools doesn't leave mushroom for improvement. 1 0 167 1 99 It was a tough battle, and you lost. But never fear! All you have to do is restore your game, and... What do you mean, "Restore WHAT game?" 1 0 168 1 99 What a monster! 1 0 169 1 99 This time the joke fell flat. That was a truly dirty trick. Too bad you won't have a chance to get even... or will you? 1 0 170 1 99 This way to the Egress


1 0 0 1 99 Restore 1 0 0 2 99 Restart 1 0 0 3 99 Quit 1 0 0 4 99 You can't do that now. 1 0 0 5 99 You've already done that. 1 0 0 6 99 You can't do that now. 1 0 0 7 99 You don't have it. 1 0 0 8 99 You are getting tired. 1 0 0 9 99 You are exhausted from lack of sleep. 1 0 0 10 99 You are so exhausted that everything you do hurts. Better get some rest. 1 0 0 11 99 You don't have enough Magic Points to cast that spell. 1 0 0 12 99 You just ate your last ration. You'd better get some more food soon. 1 0 0 13 99 You're starving. Better find some food SOON! 1 0 0 14 99 You're really getting hungry. 1 0 0 15 99 You sense no magic in this area. 1 0 0 16 99 There is no response to your spell. 1 0 0 17 99 Everything here must be bolted down somehow. 1 0 0 18 99 Your weapon is now magically charged. 1 0 0 19 99 You don't have a weapon to charge. 1 0 0 20 99 Cast what??? 1 0 1 1 99 Perhaps you shouldn't explore dark alleys at night unless you are looking for trouble. Or you should look in your manual to learn how to deal with thieves. 1 0 2 1 99 Erana missed this spot. 1 0 3 1 99 Talk about an unpleasant trip to Belgium. Next time avoid antwerp (and the trip rope) altogether. 1 0 4 1 99 You hit some lousy fall weather.... 1 0 5 1 99 You're obviously in no shape to continue the game. 1 0 6 1 99 Trounced by a bounce! 1 0 7 1 99 Congratulations! Thanks to your efforts as a moving target, the Spielburg Bandits are a cinch to win the archery contest in next year's Brigandiad. 1 0 8 1 99 Next Stop: Pincushion City. 1 0 9 1 99 That's funny. I could have sworn I warned you about eating too many Magic Mushrooms. Your mind permanently warped, you die a garishly polka-dotted death. 1 0 10 1 99 Where did all the pretty horses go? 1 0 11 1 99 It was a tough battle, and you lost. Never fear! All you have to do is restore your game, and... What do you mean, "Restore WHAT game?" 1 0 12 1 99 What a monster! 1 0 13 1 99 Too late, you remember... bear claws weren't on your diet. 1 0 14 1 99 Realty Whirled 1 0 15 1 99 The brigands have an even temperament... all bad! You seem to have a knack for doing the wrong thing. 1 0 16 1 99 You ring the bell and your bell gets rung. 1 0 17 1 99 At least you could have said "Yes" before you croaked! 1 0 18 1 99 Breakfast of Champions? 1 0 19 1 99 Now you've done it! It's hard to be a hero when you're locked up for breaking and entering (or entering and breaking, as the case may be). Be a little more intelligent (and a lot quieter) if you ever try something like this again. 1 0 20 1 99 Otto and the Sheriff rise with the dawn, and find you in their house. Be a little more intelligent (and a lot faster) if you ever try something like this again. 1 0 21 1 99 Up Past Your Bedtime 1 0 22 1 99 Criminal carelessness. 1 0 23 1 99 Die drei Knochelkopfen grab you off the table. You should have waited until they were out of reach. 1 0 24 1 99 Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk -- Mee Mee Mee Mee Mee... 1 0 25 1 99 There are still too many brigands for you to fight in here. You need to find some way to block one of the doors. 1 0 26 1 99 You're half right but completely dead. 1 0 27 1 99 You'd better find a way to prevent the brigands from getting at you from all sides if you want to survive this. 1 0 28 1 99 Don't you feel a draft? 1 0 29 1 99 You're hopelessly surrounded. You should have stopped those brigands somehow. Maybe you'll see the light. 1 0 30 1 99 Those guys look familiar. 1 0 31 1 99 Done in by poisoned daggers and desperate desperadoes! Try to avoid annoying that deadly duo next time. 1 0 32 1 99 Timing is everything. 1 0 33 1 99 Whoops! Who'd have thought that guys that look that stupid could figure out to go around the table beFORE they ran all the way up to the fallen candelabra. 1 0 34 1 99 Timing is everything. 1 0 35 1 99 Hmm... Maybe letting the brigands see you block the door with the chair wasn't a good idea. 1 0 36 1 99 One peek is worth two finesses. 1 0 37 1 99 You could not withstand the force of the blast from the Kobold's magically protected chest. 1 0 38 1 99 Blast! 1 0 39 1 99 Didn't anyone ever tell you that a hero is supposed to be brave even when he doesn't feel that way? Looks like you found the coward's way out... sauteed in wine sauce. 1 0 40 1 99 Shame on you! 1 0 41 1 99 This was not the ending you had in mind when you read the manual on "How to be a Hero." Either you just aren't ready to take on this situation, or there is a better way to accomplish your mission. 1 0 42 1 99 You knew this job was dangerous... 1 0 43 1 99 You're not a quick learner. Now you know why the grass grows so well around the porticullis. 1 0 44 1 99 OH NOOOOOOO! 1 0 45 1 99 Done in by daggers and a desperate desperado! Try to avoid annoying that deadly duo next time. 1 0 46 1 99 Daggered to death. 1 0 47 1 99 You can't believe the Chief Thief's reflexes as he instantly reacts to your intention to pull a fast one. A dagger flies like lightning and... 1 0 48 1 99 These guys are MEAN! 1 0 49 1 99 For such wimpy-looking creatures, those fairies sure can play rough! You never danced so hard in your entire life (which is now over). 1 0 50 1 99 Land of 1000 Dances 1 0 51 1 99 I don't mean to throw this in your face, but why did you throw that in your face? 1 0 52 1 99 The Little Old Lady's screams finally brought the sheriff and Otto. Next time you'd better finish your "work" before dawn! 1 0 53 1 99 You Hate Morning People 1 0 54 1 99 Four brigand archers, shooting at close range from cover, was too much for even a correspondence-school Hero like you to survive. There are times to fight, and there are times to run. This was one of the latter. 1 0 55 1 99 You're All a-Quiver 1 0 56 1 99 The brigands were waiting for you to come back. They expected you to make another try for some of their treasure. 1 0 57 1 99 Greedy Greedy Greedy 1 0 58 1 99 Yes, it was possible that this drunkard would somehow regain his senses, leap to his feet, realize that you didn't belong there, and do you in. On the other hand, you might have done a little better worrying about the wide-awake brigands closing in on you with their spears. 1 0 59 1 99 The lesser of two evils. 1 0 60 1 99 Thinking about all that treasure cost you time and more. Some folks just don't know when to leave. 1 0 61 1 99 Wearing out your welcome 1 0 62 1 99 The brigand leader is deadly with a sword. The magic spell that possesses her makes her an invincible warrior. 1 0 63 1 99 One thrust... and that's it??? 1 0 64 1 99 That was a little too much for you. You collapse from exhaustion and die. 1 0 65 1 99 Death from Overwork 1 0 66 1 99 You need to guard your flanks before a frontal assault is possible. 1 0 67 1 99 A side of Hero 1 0 68 1 99 Had you been healthier, you probably could have survived that fall. In your weakened condition, however, you succumbed to your injuries. 1 0 69 1 99 Your figure remains still and silent. 1 0 70 1 99 I score that about a 3. Those diving lessons were a complete waste. Maybe you should have taken up bowling. 1 0 71 1 99 An abridged ending.... 1 0 72 1 99 ... as you realize those large porcupines down here are really other heroes who collected arrows the hard way. 1 0 73 1 99 Quills run up your spine.... 1 0 74 1 99 A small sign reads "Booby Trap." The brigands approach to see the booby they've caught.

Maybe you shouldn't have missed the annual visit to your local Healer. 1 0 137 1 99 Your figure remains still and silent. 1 0 138 1 99 Before you confront someone who is obviously more powerful than you are, give yourself a chance to reflect. 1 0 139 1 99 Baba Yaga says you have good taste. 1 0 140 1 99 Maybe you really shouldn't have tried the Dragon's Breath! Better luck next time, and we hope you saved your game. 1 0 141 1 99 Talk about a "fiery brew" 1 0 142 1 99 That's it!!! You've hurt you for the last time! 1 0 143 1 99 You searched for silver, but all you found was iron. Iron arrowheads, that is. 1 0 144 1 99 Greedy, greedy... 1 0 145 1 99 Naughty, naughty. The Sheriff and Otto arrive on the scene and arrest you for "blatant power-gaming". You have to *work* at it to become a *real* hero! 1 0 146 1 99 Try to stay "in character" next time 1 0 147 1 99 The brigands oblige you by making your pleasant rest permanent. 1 0 148 1 99 Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z 1 0 149 1 99 You curl up for a nice little nap. The brigands break down the door. You wake up dead. 1 0 150 1 99 He who hesitates... 1 0 151 1 99 Uh oh. You made too much noise. The Sheriff and Otto arrive on the scene and arrest you for "criminal carelessness". Work a little faster next time! 1 0 152 1 99 Nobody said this job was easy 1 0 153 1 99 He saw you casting a spell, and he already had a dagger in his hand. It doesn't pay to try to fight someone who uses poisoned daggers. 1 0 154 1 99 Hold the arsenic, please 1 0 155 1 99 There must be reasons to stop and let five archers draw beads on you while you attempt to cast a spell, but none come to mind. 1 0 156 1 99 Wear any targets lately? 1 0 157 1 99 You really brought down the house! Too bad you were under it at the time. 1 0 158 1 99 Bad strategy! 1 0 159 1 99 That's it! You've hurt you for the last time! 1 0 160 1 99 They say that the cops don't catch any rocket scientists. Well, they sure didn't this time! 1 0 161 1 99 Criminal stupidity 1 0 162 1 99 Hey, man, like, when it's time to swing, it's time to SWING! 1 0 163 1 99 No sense of rhythm 1 0 164 1 99 That hermit seems to know his "Trigger" spells pretty well. He sure pulled the trigger on you (not to mention the plug) by teleporting you to the top of the falls without a barrel. 1 0 165 1 99 You're all wet 1 0 166 1 99 Didn't anyone warn you about eating other people's food? Death by Toadstools doesn't leave mushroom for improvement. 1 0 167 1 99 It was a tough battle, and you lost. But never fear! All you have to do is restore your game, and... What do you mean, "Restore WHAT game?" 1 0 168 1 99 What a monster! 1 0 169 1 99 This time the joke fell flat. That was a truly dirty trick. Too bad you won't have a chance to get even... or will you? 1 0 170 1 99 This way to the Egress
