SOON I CAN STOP SNEAKING AROUND
I love this place, I really do.
I also love how the Hero's arm goes up and down. om nom.
man i am getting swamped with goblins what is this
hey a white stag
Darn it. I'm sure i have enough space or whatever but this is annoying regardless. I always forget new directories I put games in. Eh, I'll just delete one, no big deal.
A SWORD ABSHAHG
I'll get you yet
MAYBE I'LL JUST THROW ROCKS AT YOU INSTEAD
Stag: DUDE WTF why you even gotta do a thing
YOU CANNOT ESCAPE ME
wait who are you
THANK YOU THANK YOU
i hope you didn't save after throwing a rock at the stag! Cause then you can't beat the game! :D
Anyway let's do this the nonviolent (i.e. right) way
HOLD ON I GOT THIS
you can say no, but she'll just go back into the tree and you have to do it again. so eh.
Her hair looks like worms.
The Dryad has her own little theme, kind of dramatic and pretty. This version combines it and the Goblin Ambush. :B
Is that what those ptooie plants are called? Well what do you know.
GOTS ME A QUEST
possibly cause there's a woman in it, idk
Dryad: WTF GET OFF
This game really needs to branch out with its puns.
I think you can also throw a rock at it here, but that might either crash the game or kill you. I forget. :B
Close to the dryad we find... a mysterious ring! HMM.
Nothing will happen here.
I LOVE EATING MUSHROOMS
I WILL SHOVE THEM IN MY FACE WITHOUT WARNING
fairy mushrooms wait
EAT SOME MORE, IS THAT WHAT YOU SAID?
well i guess they did warn me
you know this isn't even the only drug related death you can trigger in these games. Oh Sierra. :D
Well anyway I'm outta here
Ah, the Goblin Ambush! This is a good place to grind stats. Basically, goblins will pop out and attack you. Everytime you beat all of them, they add one more to I think a max of 9. Once you hit the cap, you can just kill them all, leave the screen, come back, kill them all, repeat. Me and Alex spent a lot of time leveling here. But I'll come back when I'm more ready for it.
North from here leads to Baba Yaga, and south to the Goblin Ambush. It's up in the top left corner of the map, I think.
Wow, that was easy enough.
SURE WHAT DRAWBACKS COULD HELPING A TALKING SKULL HAVE
A glowing jewel eh
I think I know where to find one of those
BABA YAAAAAAAAAGAAAA THERE'S A BLOND DUDE OUT HERE AND HE LOOKS HEROOOOIIIIC
chicken legs mmm
SEE THAT HUT
Don't climb the fence, basically.
Pretty pitiful, but I haven't really been grinding yet.
You guys, you spore spittin guys
I wish there was a way to capture how spastically the hero flails at the wall. Hee hee.
It actually turns out I was climbing the wrong area. WELL WHATEVER.
Here's the Fighter's solution to this puzzle. Basically, you throw rocks at the seed when it's in the air and knock it down. Thieves climb up and just catch it, and Magic Users use fetch again.
IT CAN BE KIND OF DIFFICULT
I always felt kind of bad for taking this seed since the Spireas just sit there all D: after you take it and don't go PTOO anymore. Ah well.
IT'S FOR THE GREATER GOOD
Alright here's your dumb seed
I never understood why the hero drops the seed from above his head
There were a lot of trekkies on the Sierra teams back in the day. :B
Always with the nature saving, alright, what's the deal
I don't know if you can tell from the caps, but when the acorn drops, the font gets a black outline. It's the same graphical weirdness that happens when you talk to Hilde. Who knows what causes it, really.
Blackened Saurus, serve at your next dinner party
A Meep, how do you know what a meep is, I don't know what a meep is
I THINK I KNOW WHERE MY GREEN FUR IS COMING FROM
And as you may imagine, they make squeaky little sounds when they pop up and down.
GET OUTTA THERE
The meeps won't let you pull up the rock :(
that guy isn't meeping
he's up to something
his fur is all yellow and he's mostly bald what's with that
Shouldn't you be working with Jim Henson?
Well that was easy enough. ANOTHER INGREDIENT DOWN
FREE SPELL WOOOO
And that's pretty much all we need from the Meeps. There are a few things you can do with them though. If you throw rocks or cast Flame Dart or attack them, they get upset and throw things at you and refuse to talk to you, if I remember right.
I think, and my memories of this are vague, you can also feed them apples and they'll spit out an apple core. But I'm not sure. :B
Ah, the days before you could click the mouth on yourself and select what to tell people.
Antwerps bounce up and down in the same place making a loud BOING noise. Hee hee. HUG ME, ANTWERP
It just bounces you away though. :(
FINE BE THAT WAY
This screen is a bad screen. You want to generally turn around and go left, cause there's nothing good ahead. DON'T MIND ME I'VE MEMORIZED THESE THINGS
It leeeads here! The Brigand Ambush. :O
I think we thought for a while that you could actually fight your way through here, but maybe you can't? I can't remember us ever succeeding anyway. You're not supposed to.
Back to the waterfaaaall
Dang, running out of time here.
IT'S KIND OF FLYING, RIGHT? OFF THE ROCKS? YEAH
So there's an invisible ladder here! HMM.
But I'll do this the way you're supposed to do it for Fighters. THROWING!
He reveals the ladder for you whenever he sees you're there, just in case you didn't know about it.
Darn, I was trying to get smushed behind the door that time, cause you can do that. Eh, maybe later.
Okay, this time I'll do it right.
Ah, old 'enry the 'ermit. He has the catchiest little theme song. Me and Alex picked it out on the guitar once, and my god it gets stuck in your head.
A PLEASANT PLACE
Hero sit up straight be a gentleman
I did not get the joke behind this for the longest time. You have no idea. :O
I HEAR YOU, 'ENRY
I dunno why this amuses me so much. 'Enry just quietly chuckling to himself.
I like that no one knows, hee hee.
No he isn't. At least, not in this version.
MORE FREE SPELLS WOOO
as a side note, i like how 'enry talks
I GOTTA MEET THIS GUY
Who would cast a spell at 'Enry though? :O
Anyway I'm outta here
Funny you should mention that.
LITTLE DARK, MAYBE
You know, after all this time, I honestly have no idea how to play cribbage. I think it involves cards. But anytime I hear the word, I think of 'Enry.
Here, have some of my bread, sausage, and plums.
Hero just sprawls out all over, hehehe.
Lame. This is why we don't usually spend the night here unless we have to.
ANYWAY AWAY WE GO
I thought it up all by myselfs. :B
GETTIN THERE, SLOWLY
