I have committed the blunder of all blunders... I am on Noloben... remember that part that said "Save Game here!!!" Well, I thought I saved the game, but evidently I did not! Not only did I not save the game, but I loaded a previously saved game which took me back to the beginning!!!

I am in really dire need of a game saved at this point... help anyone?

Della,

If you don't get there in time, just walk back and try again... I had much more time than I needed and I was a bit leisurely in my walking.

Well, I managed to get back to where I messed up...again. I walked as quickly as I could to the island, but before I got there I could see the rock reforming...too late. Tell me, do you have to touch the symbol on the floor under the lens before you drop the slate? When I tried it the first time, I didn't touch the symbol, dropped the slate and walked down and the rock never dissolved...

I didn't do that.

What did you draw on your slate?
I found I actually had to wait a bit for the rock to dissolve while I was standing there in front of it! I nearly left before it happened.
You can sort of 'run' too; just hold the left mouse down a bit, that will take you pretty quickly along, especially through the cave part.

I drew the snake symbol on the slate and dropped it. When I touched the symbol on the floor, the symbol turned blue and the rock dissolved and reformed before I could get there... when I didn't touch the symbol, I stood in front of the rock for at least three minutes and nothing ever happened...

No need to touch the symbol. Just drop the slate, run (you know you can hold the SHIFT button down along with the left mouse button and you will move faster) to the pedestal behind you, link to the Home pedestal, run out of the bubble to the left and go through the tunnel and run across the water (again, use the SHIFT key to run fast). When I did this I had to wait for almost a minute for the rock to open!!

Good luck.

got through the rock in the wall into the Keep. Am now at the point where I have met Esher and released the slate. Next problem.... I pressed the bottom sign to get linked back into the first linking bubble.. it took me back to the beach. I then pressed the sign on the center part of the pedestal to get linked back to Direbo... first, there is no slate on the pedestal to take.. and second, there is no house to walk to... where am I? and what have I done wrong now?

If you pressed the correct link in Nobelen (the one in the center with three rectangles sticking upward), you will be taken back to Direbo. You won't have the slate.

Then, if you have opened all of the gates to the bridges (per Bert's walkthrough) you can walk over the bridge to the next island and continue the game by using a different bubble and link to the next Age. If you haven't opened all of the bridge gates, then you'll have to link back to the Great Shaft and find the next sleeping room where there will be another link to Direbo.

Good luck,

Dadguy

Thanks so much you guys. I was looking for stairs, not a bridge. Got it.

well, i'm back again. My program crashed and started me all the way back to the very beginning... like I didn't have a hard enough time getting to where I was before.

Now I'm trying to draw the symbol for the Keep. I have drawn it way over twenty times... the money hates me... Is there a way I can get around this??? Or a secret to the drawing?

Della please post this in Glitches. This forum is for hints only and we prefer the people familiar with technical problems deal with them.
Thank you

Sue
