[sic] Read the ochre vial. G. Open it and drink the berzio potion. H. The effects of this potion will last for several days; this should be long enough for you to finish the game.

So, send in the matchbook! D. PUT THE MATCHBOOK IN THE RECEPTACLE in the Lobby. E. But you have to do it before the mailman arrives, or the vilstu potion won't arrive until the next day.

What is the AIMFIZ spell for? How does it work? A. If you CAST AIMFIZ ON FLOYD (for example), you should be transported to Floyd's location. B. Is anyone missing or perhaps in trouble? C. Try casting it on Belboz. D. Since Belboz is quite distant (as you can tell by examining the amulet while still in the Guild Hall), and possibly protected by magical spells, AIMFIZ does't transport you to his exact location.

Where is the front door of the Guild Hall? C. Wait in the Lobby around the time that the doorbell rings. D. It's a member of the Messengers Guild making his daily delivery (and pick-up...?). E.

A. Pretty easily. Just don't jump. B. Nice view from the Turret, eh? How do I enter the West Wing of the ruined castle? Play Planetfall(tm) instead of Sorcerer.

The blort potion allows you to see in dark places, even if you don't have a light source. D. Unfortunately, grues are afraid of light, not of being seen. E. So the blort potion is pretty useless in Sorcerer. Fort Griffspotter ***************** Where is the fort? Walk southeast from the River Bank. Where should I dig to find the cannonball? A.

The only way back is through the glass maze. B. You'll need the FWEEP spell to get back through it. C.

In fact, once the maze has re-arranged itself, you'll need a total of three FWEEPs to make the round trip. E. There's a much easier and quicker way, although some players may find it inelegant.

This happens (on the average) one out of every sixteen tries. D. If the three matching symbols are pots of gold, you hit the jackpot. Unfortunately, this is fatal. This happens (on the average) one out of every sixty-four tries. E. Otherwise, the payoff is one zorkmid coin. This happens (on the average) three out of every sixty-four tries. If you paid off the park gnome before paying the toll gnome, this is the only way to get a coin for the toll. F. For a better way to pay both gnomes, read the first question in this section.

Who is the person who looks just like my twin? A. The person looks just like you, only more dishevelled. B. It is your own older self. C. There must be some time travel going on here. Should I give my spell book to my "twin"? It makes sense to trust your older self, since your interests are almost certainly mutual. After all, where would your older self be if you went and got yourself "killed"? Can I make a map of the coal mine? A. Yes, but you don't have much time until vilstu wears off. B. Dropping an object in each room of the coal mine will individualize it, and thus making a map of the area will be easier. C. There are only three rooms called Coal Mine, but sometimes a passage returns to the same room that it left from. Can I go down the coal chute at Top of Chute? Sure. DOWN or ENTER THE CHUTE will do it. What was that flash of orange light? A. VEZZA might be helpful here. B. There is a room off the middle of the coal chute. C. You can get to it if you've found the timber in the coal mine. D. Tie the rope to the timber, drop the timber at Top of Chute, and then throw the rope down the chute. E.

This is obviously how your older self was able to meet you earlier, in the Coal Bin Room. D. CAST GOLMAC ON ME, then go DOWN to the Coal Bin Room. What is the purpose of the kerosene lamp? A. It lights the Slanted Room. B. Something unusual happens when you GOLMAC in the Slanted Room. C. After casting GOLMAC on yourself, OPEN THE LAMP. D. The smelly scroll wasn't there when you arrived, because you yourself removed it the "last time through" the cycle. What happened to the objects I dropped into the coal chute at Top of Chute? When you drop objects into the upper coal chute, they land in the Coal Bin Room, where they get buried in the coal (except for a few large objects, such as the timber or the floor waxer). What should I do when I meet my younger self? A. What happened the last time this meeting occurred? B. If you gave your older self the spell book before, then your younger self should now give you the spell book. C. You'd better give your younger self the combination to the door in the Dial Room. D. Otherwise your younger self will never be able to get to the Slanted Room and find GOLMAC and become your older self... E. ...or more simply, you will cease to exist! How can I get my younger self to give me my spell book? A. Remember, _you_ were the younger self 20 or 30 turns ago. B. Your younger self will do whatever _you_ did when _you_ were the younger self. C. If you gave your spell book to your older self, then your younger self will give it to you. Aargh! This coal mine puzzle has me totally befuddled! Help! A. Don't go on until you're completely stumped by the coal mine. B. The entire goal of the coal mine puzzle is to obtain the smelly (VARDIK) scroll. C.

TAKE SCROLL. D. YOUNGER SELF, THE COMBINATION IS (combination). D. The Lagoon Area *************** Why did some of my possessions vanish as I entered the lower chute? A. You changed time in such a way that it became impossible for you to have those possessions. B. For example, you never told your younger self the combination, thus you yourself could never have been told it by your older self, thus you couldn't have objects from beyond the dial door. Where are the objects I dropped into the lower chute in the Coal Bin Room? Objects that you drop into the lower chute end up at the bottom of the lagoon. Can I get back up the lower coal chute? No. Can I enter the lagoon? A. Try going east from the Lagoon Shore. B. "If you want to enter the lagoon, say so." C. Try ENTER THE LAGOON. Is there anything significant about the lagoon? A. Yes. B.

You can survive only a few turns underwater. B. Naturally, the vilstu potion will allow you to stay underwater as long as it lasts. C.

What should I do? A. Light usually takes care of grues, but these are mutated. B. Have you found the Frobozz Magic Grue Protection Kit? C. It's on the Lagoon Floor. See the lagoon question. D. What you need is inside the crate. E. The lamp is useless, of course, because of the mutation. F. Either the grue suit or the repellent will suffice. G. SPRAY ME WITH REPELLENT or WEAR THE GRUE SUIT.

Why do I sometimes suddenly cease to exist? A. Don't continue unless you've used the GOLMAC spell. B. A time travel paradox is involved. C. One way to "poof" out of existence is to enter the lower chute after casting GOLMAC without informing your younger self of the combination. This sets up a paradox. D. Another way to "poof" is to cast GOLMAC on yourself a second time (the scroll re-appears on the ground of the Slanted Room when you GOLMAC). A second dose of this spell sends you too far back in time to meet your younger self, thus creating another paradox. E. Two other ways to "poof" are to leave the Slanted Room before casting GOLMAC, or to carry the shimmering scroll out of the Slanted Room. How were the spells and potions named? A. GNUSTO, FROTZ, REZROV, and IZYUK are taken from Enchanter. B. FWEEP is the sound that the deranged bat in Zork I makes. Perhaps it is repeating the last word it ever heard as a human. C. AIMFIZ is ZIFMIA backwards. ZIFMIA, in Enchanter, causes someone to be transported to YOUR location. D. GOLMAC is short for gold machine, the time travel device in Zork III. The gold machine was probably imbued with this spell. E. YOMIN is an anagram of the name of an actor who played a famous mind-prober on a sci-fi TV show. F. MALYON is a corruption of Pygmalion, a sculptor who (according to ancient Greek legend) brought his creation to life. G. FOOBLE is a potential reset code in Suspended(tm). H. YONK is a reference to the author's birthplace. I. Some others are the names of Infocom employees.
