MARKET PLACE

 
This part of the adventure depends almost entirely on your interaction with other characters. Certain topics will only appear after you've discussed something with someone else. The solution below only covers the minimum dialog topics needed to complete this section of the game. To get a more detailed storyline you should discuss all the dialog topics and also speak to the other characters in and around the market place. Yellow text is used to indicate the actual dialog topic to select.
 
 

PEARL HENDERSON

Ask her about her husband, Duane, to learn that she wants to go see the pyramids but doesn't have anyone to go with. This activates the 'Pyramid' topic when you speak to General Grasiento.
 

GENERAL GRASIENTO

Note that General Grasiento and Professor Oubier are standing at, and studying the chart on the wall when you enter the Police Station. The General's infatuation with Nico is also relevant. He tells you that Professor Oubier is planning an expedition to some Mayan ruins and wants an excavation permit. He also tells you that Renaldo can conduct a tour to the pyramid when he's finished his paperwork.
 

NICO

When you exit the Police Station ask Nico why she came on so strong with the General. She tells you that it's his 'Achilles Heel' - a clue you need later.
 

DUANE HENDERSON

Duane introduces you to Professor Oubier, but won't talk about anything relevant while the Professor is around. For example, if you ask him about his truck he tells you that it's full of camping equipment. You need to come back later when Oubier has gone.
 

THE BAND

You learn that Miguel was arrested for playing traditional folk music. This activates the 'Music' dialog topic with Duane Henderson. Also, after speaking to the band Professor Oubier will no longer be with Duane Henderson.
 

GENERAL GRASIENTO

Return to the Police Station and try looking at the chart on the wall. The General won't let you look at it but you can talk to him about it. He tells you that it's an archaeological survey map.
 

DUANE HENDERSON

Now that Professor Oubier is not around, you learn a lot from Duane. When you discuss the music dialog topic with him he tells you Miguel is actually an agitator. He tells you Miguel was arrested for handing out subversive literature. You learn that the truck is filled with explosives and Duane intends breaking Miguel out of prison, but he doesn't have a detonator. This activates the 'Detonator' dialog topic with Duane and Conchita Garcia.
 

CONCHITA GARCIA

You find Conchita Garcia at the Quaramonte Mine Co. She's got a detonator but needs a good reason to give it to you. Tell her Professor Oubier is working with the General. You need to find a way to look at the map on the wall in the Police Station.
 

NICO

Wait until you're in the Market Place before speaking to Nico. You persuade her to distract the General so that you can look at the map.
 

GENERAL GRASIENTO

Tell the General that Nico wants to interview him.
 

RENALDO

Ask Renaldo if he'll take a friend of yours (Pearl Henderson) to see the old ruined pyramid.
 

PEARL HENDERSON

Tell Pearl that you've arranged for Renaldo to take her to the pyramid.
 

CONCHITA GARCIA

Before returning to Conchita look at the chart on the wall in the Police Station to find out where the excavation is taking place. When you tell her about the location you saw on the map she allows you to take the detonator from the cupboard behind her.
 

DUANE HENDERSON

Give the detonator to Duane. He asks you to go tell Miguel about his plan.
 
 
Go to the prison (through the rear exit in the Police Station) and talk to Miguel...
 
 
 

GENERAL GRASIENTO'S APARTMENT

 
There are five items in the Apartment that you can examine - a sword fish, tiger skin, portrait, television set and lava lamp. Examining the items activates them as dialog topics. While you're discussing them with the General his mother enters the room.
 
 
 

PRISON CELL

 
Talk to Miguel and ask him for the noose. Tie the noose to the cell window and then pass it through the window to Duane. Note that the noose is not easily visible after you've tied it to the cell window.
