THE mONSTER

Olaf has been hired to take care of the monster that lives in the cave. Olaf climbs down the rope to the cave. The rope breaks and his 2 companions leave him to his fate.

Make an escape route.

Cave entrance:

Look around where Olaf fell. Take the leather and rope from the ground. Olaf has a knife in inventory.

Go left to the boulder. The boulder blocks the entrance to the cave. Olaf wants to move it to have an escape route. Try to move it; it's too heavy.

Examine the ground in front of the boulder. It is soft clay and jagged.

Den:

Go right to the next cave. Olaf sees the monster asleep at the right end of the cave and realizes that it is a Dolsimian, a dangerous opponent rather than a mud monster the villagers told Olaf.

Get wine:   Look around.

 Check the table at right. Take the fork. Try to take the stone bowl but it makes a noise that disturbs the monster's sleep.

Check the vase beside the minor cage at left. One vase is empty and the other is corked.

Use the knife on the cork (or the fork from the table). Olaf tasted it to know that it is filled with good wine.

Go left to the statue. See that the statue is that of an unfinished dolsimian. Take the ladle hanging from the scaffolding.

Take the pumpkin on the ground beside the basket of stolen fruits.

Go right to the lantern and take a stone.

Go back to the vase with wine. Use the ladle on the wine and examine it in inventory. It is leaking.

In inventory combine the knife and pumpkin to get a pumpkin bowl.

Use pumpkin bowl on the vase with wine. It is too big. Use the ladle on wine and then use the ladle with wine with pumpkin bowl to get a bowl of wine.

Move the boulder:   

Take the leather that is on top of the small cage left of the vases.

Examine in close up the strong bar of the small cage left of the vase.

Cut the 4 strings-attachments of the strong bar with the knife. Olaf ties the strings automatically to make a long string. Take the strong bar.

Go back to the boulder. Use the bowl of wine on the jagged earth in front of the boulder. Olaf automatically makes 5 trips to get wine to soften the earth. The boulder moves. A black smoke flies in.

Topple the boulder completely using the bar or tie it with the rope and automatically pull.

The escape route is clear and sunlight shines in the cave.

Take care of the monster.

Learn how to take care of the dolsimian:    Go back to the den at right and to the statue.

Olaf calls out to the black smoke. Learn that the monster is named Nog. Smokey is a curse on Nog's family for 5 generations. Learn that Nog's family are good stonemasons and Nog is the most talented of them.

Nog's weak point is sunlight. Smokey gives a plan using the leather above the entrance to the cave.

Smokey laughs and changes color.

Go back to den and Olaf notices the crystal above Nog. Go back and talk to Smokey about the crystal. Nog placed it there to stop Smokey. Hmm...

Go back to the cave entrance at left. If the boulder is toppled, see the leather on the ceiling at right.

Examine the leather on the ceiling several times and Olaf wants to get closer.

Get the ladder:    Go back to the den and see the ladder beside the sleeping Nog. Try to take it and Nog stirs.

Moths:    Go left and talk to Smokey-Stinky about light sleeper. Learn about the moths Smokey uses to suck happiness from Nog. The moths are diverted to the lamps placed by Nog.

See a lamp held by the statue. Use a stone on lamp to break it.

Use leather to cover the lamp close to the statue and the one beside the table.

See the moths converge on the crystal above Nog and the crystal is dimmed.

Talk to Smokey again. Smokey works on Nog.

Go to Nog and take the ladder. Olaf leaves the ladder by the statue but has a ladder icon in inventory.

Prepare the trap:    Go left to the entrance room. Use the ladder on the leather in the ceiling.

Climb the ladder. Examine the leather. See construction of branches around the leather and a crack on the wall at left. Use the fork on the crack to get bent fork.

In inventory, combine the bent fork and the string to get bent fork with string.

Use bent fork with string on the leather and Olaf hooks it on the leather.

Watch what happens. Nog is trapped between the 2 sunlights. Olaf chats with Nog.

Olaf talks to his sweetheart, Alia.

Swamp and Pripogala

Someone is outside and knocks on the door. Olaf doesn't wake up. A spell causes light and noise.

Olaf wakes up and goes out. Talk to Pripogala. Dulevar, king's magician needs Olaf's help. Giant Krugell, the ice giant and brother of the fire dragon Arioch kidnapped the King's daughter Erea. Krugell wants revenge on King Auglemius and Olaf's family for killing Arioch. Pripogala wants to talk to Olaf in her shack at the swamp up north.

Look close at the broken flail. Use the strap to fix the flail.

Go back to the swamp and the shrine surrounded by thorny bushes. Use the flail on the thorny bushes.

Enter the shrine:    Go upstairs. Look around and see openings at the perimeter of the floor. Inside the openings are jewels. At the center is another opening - it is empty. Take the piece of walling from the floor.

Check the stone face on the pedestal. Check to look close at the pedestal. See a statuette similar to the one taken from Pripogala. Turn the statuette.

Check the statue of the goddess with a begging hand. The other hand is broken and is on the floor.

Pull the begging hand down and hear a hissing sound from panel at the side of the chair.

Repeat pulling down the hand to check the panel. See that it is very thin to use the knife on.

Open the panel:    Take the stone hand from the floor.

Go upstairs and see root on the ivies on the wall. Use the knife to get a root.

Exit the temple and go to the crossroad. If you have not taken resin from the base of the tree at right, do so now.

Use the glued hand-handle to pull the panel. See that the pipe has a hole. That is what made the hissing sound.

Seal the hole and get water flowing:    In inventory use the knife on the root to sharpen one end.

Use the sharpened root on the melted resin and then use that root with resin on the crack in the pipe. That seals the pipe.

Automatically pull down the begging hand again and see water flow for a short time out of the gargoyles' mouths.

Protection for Mykorus:    Olaf mentions his rooster as guard.

Go back home and take the near catatonic rooster from the fence.

Bring the rooster to Mykorus at his grave in the swamp. Okay, the rooster is not the best guard.

Follow Smokey back to Mykorus at the swamp. See the Smokey-rooster take care of the slugs. Impressive.

Mykorus' reading:    Mykorus reluctantly gives a prediction.

Krugell's icy breath can cause snow storm and his magic club controls shape of ice. There are 11 artifacts that can be used against the titan. 6 already has malicious owner. One possibility left, God's Breath. It has the probability of death in 7 out of 10 cases.

Get the scale:    Go to the temple-shrine in the swamp.

Go down and place the catfish in the water of life.
