That is based on your horoscope which in turn is based on the chosen zodiac sign after you selected your avatar.
At your gameplay menu - The bottom of the left pillar has the selected zodiac sign and shows that day's horoscope.

The good day and bad day puzzles are similar except the bad day ones have additional things to do: like an item might be missing or you have to prepare some ingredients that are present during the good days.

Deleterman you need to post any game related questions in Hints, not in Discussions.

What are you looking for Deleterman?
When your horoscope portends a bad day, you'll have to spend more time looking for items but they will all be in the general area that you are in now.

Go ahead and play the game Deleterman. You can always get back easily to get papyrus if you need it. I honestly don't remember using it in the game though.

Hi-I have a hint about this game regarding the chariot/counterweight puzzle, but some people might think it a spoiler and I forget how to note the caution for a spoiler. Could you enlighten me?

Pamvan I think it'd the icon on the full reply screen that looks like a megaphone?

Thanks, Sue.

At first I took six bags of sand (don't ask me why) to help balance the counterweight & the chariot. I found that if I had extra bags in the inventory, I couldn't get the chariot to take me up. I had to get rid of the bags back at the cyclops. But if you put the extra bags on the chariot, you can't take them back to the origin. I had to load a saved game and start over from that point!

Deleterman, I don't remember though I do remember it taking some time.

I found the following at UHS-hints. Does that help?

Ashod Resin: grey nuggets
Ataniya Roots: right gray powder

Nuzi Leaves: yellow powder
Ashur Seeds: orange powder
Kassite Bark: ochre powder

Teresh Roots: black powder
Here's what you add to identify each of the herbs:

Tjekker Flowers: 1 scoop of the bottom left white powder, 1 scoop Mitanni Gum, 2 scoops Arsawa Powder.
Ashod Resin: 1 scoop grey nuggets, 1 scoop Mitanni Gum, 2 scoops Arsawa Powder, 2 scoops Pitassa Gum.
Ataniya Roots: 1 scoop bottom right gray powder, 1 scoop Kerma Powder, 2 scoops Arsawa Gum, 2 Pitassa Gum.

Nuzi Leaves: 1 scoop yellow powder, 1 scoop Mitanni Gum.

Try to see if you move the cursor on the bowl to see the label at bottom of screen or at side or pick it up or right click it. There is a label there somewhere if my memory holds.

Hi smile

Once you have created those missing powders that you need and you start to make the actual sleeping potion, you should find that all the bowls will then be named.
Just use your mouse on them.

That's what happened for me, anyway.

luck

Cheers.

simply put the extra bags next to the chariot, on the left-hand side of it. It took me a while to figure this out myself because I had forgotten that I had some extra bags in my inventory smile Just put them on the left-hand side of the chariot; you can always pick them up again if you need them smile

Deleterman, have you picked up the Diomedes and Zoilos papyruses? They were scattered around in the lab.
