I'm still only early on in the game but did just bet on the winner in one of the arena battles and now need to collect my winnings - to lift me out of near poverty lol

But where do I collect them ??

Hope someone can remember because I certainly can't woozy

I don't remember either, but could it be the Dead Parrot Inn or the bank?

I thought it was the same place where you placed your bets.

Thanks for the replies 😊

Yes. I thought that too so that's where I went.
(Bets are placed on a special board at The Dead Parrot.)

So maybe it's just that there is a delay before I can claim it .... or something ....

It IS just a question of a delay.

I went back to the Dead Parrot the following evening, clicked on the board and got my winnings joy

Thank you, Marian smile

Since my last post, along with other things I've managed to do, I got "eaten" whilst testing my swimming skills !!

I guess they need a lot of improvement ....

Don't you just love these oldies lol

SPOILER !!

I'm badly stuck in the 2nd of the Rites of Rulership - "Conquest" - on the island of Sifnos.

I've killed all the guards (outside and inside the fortress) but now a Centaur Wizard has appeared in the fortress, upstairs on a walkway, and I don't seem able to damage him AT ALL eek

I'm playing as a plain and simple "Fighter" and have looked at a couple of walkthroughs for possible tips.
And the ONLY fighter tip I can find is to pick up some throwing spears (which I have done) and keep throwing them at the wizard until he dies.
However, as soon as I get near enough to aim one at him, my character is "auto turned round and runs a few steps away" all the time getting pelted by the wizard's magic, so of course the death of my character inevitably follows slapforehead

Can anyone offer any help, please ??

I am not sure, Mad. I found one walkthrough which said this:

Before going to Sifnos, buy about 50 daggers. When you get there, fire at will. The Centaur teleports, but with a thrown weapon, who cares? If you don't have the daggers, just snag spears off of that cart in the courtyard of the fortress - you can pull an unlimited number of them off of it


I can see, though, that using the spears hasn't gotten you anywhere.

I will let you know if I find anything else.

Hi Marian smile

And sorry to be so late getting back to you.

Yes, I saw that "dagger" tip myself (on the Sierra site) but didn't follow up on it as it was so similar to using the spears. But thank you very much, anyway thumbsup

I'm hoping to fit in a little play session later, even if not super hopeful of progress, because I just really love this old game yes

GUESS WHAT ????????

Reverted to an earlier save and did some more "throwing" practice, temporarily shed everything weighty that I didn't think I'd need and then went to the island and beat everybody and snaffled everything joy joy joy

OK. Getting close to the end of the game now but am in a VERY bad pickle !! eek

Minos has killed himself in his palace (and I've killed everyone else) and I've done the all important looting of bodies BUT I can't find a way to open the trapped gate of the "essential" alcove without dying.
As a Fighter I have no magic powers. [The only "magic" I have is that some of my armour is magic and I have one magic spear.]
But even with my health and stamina at the highest levels, I am instantly killed by the blast of the trap on the alcove door as it explodes.

I'll be pretty unhappy if I can't get to finish the game but I can't think what to do headscratch

One walkthrough I read said that you can either disarm it or open it. Make sure you are healed and use a vitality potion if necessary. Then it suggests:

Then pour fireproofing potion on yourself.

I'm late to the party again .... Sorry !!

Thanks very much for your response, Marian smile Have to laugh though as we are definitely both accessing the same info ....

[/spoiler]I'm not sure I CAN disarm the trap because when I started the game I heeded the advice of "only developing skills in line with my character of a "fighter".
[Therefore no magic or thief etc abilities.]
So it looks like I will have to re-load a saved game from waaaaay back (before this recent lengthy period of combat where game saving is not allowed) and go buy myself some fireproofing. I reckon that could be a valid option cool
[I actually found that particular advice in more than one place after I started looking for help woozy
Annoying because of course I could have bought some before setting off to the anticipated big fight - but I never thought of it !!!!]
Anyway, maybe with my health and vitality at full notch, fireproofing myself ALSO will be sufficient.
And I'll buy a few of the potions if I can because if I DO get past this part and have to face the Dragon I could well end up getting a trifle singed lol

However, all might have to wait a day or two as I can't spare too much time right now whistle[spoiler]

Unfortunately I've not had time to play any more of "Layers of Fear" - than my first dabble - but hopes are high for over the weekend grin
