Companions of Xanth: The Complete Walk-Thru First off, I'd like to thank Piers Anthony and the Legend staff for a great game. Now, for all you whiners out there, if you think this will ruin the game for you... DON'T READ IT!!!!! Otherwise, enjoy!!!! Mundania Bedroom (Opening Scene) Take the envelope, then open it. Look at the letter. Go northwest to get to the front hall. Front Hall Turn on the light switch (next to the door), then go west into the kitchen. Kitchen Answer the ringing phone. (If it isn't ringing yet, do something else until it does.) Say "Hi, Edsel," then follow dialogue path 1, 2, 2, 3. (He'll send the computer game via courier.) Take the teabag from the table. Open the icebox and take the mustard. Front Hall Open and close the front door. Open the door again, take the package, and close the door. Open the package, then open the game box that's inside. Go southeast, back to your computer. Load the Game Flip the power switch on the right side of the computer. Put the game disk in the floppy drive, then close the drive. Choosing a Companion Look at the computer screen. Talk to the tiny man (Grundy Golem). Ask him everything you can about the game, its rules, Xanth, companions, et cetera. Choose Nada Naga as your companion. Welcome to Xanth! The Cavern Wear the 3-D glasses. Wait a few turns until Nada opens the coffin-shaped door. Go north through it. (Don't worry about being a screen. It'll pass.) Go northeast to the crossroads. The Crossroads and the Village Go east, then southeast to the village gate. Take the rock on the ground. Take both lamp covers. Talk to the headsman at the gate. Agree to help rid the town of the censorship. He'll give you a key; click on the gate, unlock it with the key, then open it. Go north to the pier. Pier Take the scrap of sailcloth. Ask Nada to get the rope for you. She'll get the anchor too. Now go south, northwest, then west to the crossroads. Crossroads Click on the anchor, then pry the log with the anchor. Beyond the Pail Making a Catapult Go east, then southeast to the village gate. Talk to the headsman; ask him to make a thin flat board. Wait a turn or two. He'll return with the board. Now go east one screen, and put the board on the boulder, put the rock on the board. Talk to Nada and ask her to whack the catapult with her tail. Go northeast. Take the pail. Go northeast twice more, to the screen door. The Eye Scream Talk to the eye on the screen door. Keep talking until you can ask to see Fairy Nuff. After the eye closes, open the screen, then the door. Go north, then take the tee. Go north, then take the egg. Go northeast to the booth of the Fairy Nuff. Fairy Nuff Talk to Fairy Nuff. Tell him about the problem in Isthmus Village. When he asks about the number of censors on the ship, tell him, "Two." Read the solution recipe. Note: Use the pail to collect ingredients for the solution. Go back to the dark misty forest just northwest of the village. (If you haven't taken the egg, the pail, or the lamp covers yet, you should grab these items on the way back to the forest.) Fairy Nuff's Solution Cough Drops Talk to Nada, ask about the bush, then ask her to get a cough drop. Wait. Ask Nada to get another one. (You need two cough drops.) Put the drops in the Pail. Go west to the crossroads. Crossroads Ingredients Put the pail in the brook three times to get three pints (six cups) of fresh water. Take a buttercup and empty it to get butter. Put the butter in the pail. Click on the empty sticky buttercup, then on the fireflies to catch one. Put the firefly into the pail. Now go back to the "eye screen" doorway. Eye Screams Take the eye scream nearest you on the right side of the path and put it in the pail. Repeat. (You need two dashes of eye scream.) Finally, put both the egg and the scrap of sailcloth (from the pier) into the pail. The solution is ready. Take it to Fairy Nuff. Use the Solution Talk to Fairy Nuff. If you've taken the two lamp covers from the village, he'll divide the solution into two equal portions. Go back to the censor ship and put one portion of the solution on each censor. The Fairy's "Shortcut" After the cut-scene, go back to the village headsman. He'll give you a sword. Then return to Fairy Nuff. Talk to him to find the shortcut through the regions. Then take the path to the northwest. The Void Click repeatedly on any direction in the compass rose. Watch the picture closely- a shimmering door will appear, then disappear. Every time it does, talk to Nada and strongly affirm that you saw it. After several appearances, the door will appear permanently. Open the door and enter. The Region of Earth Metria the Demoness Walk southeast past the barrow. Keep talking to Metria and turning down her offers to drink from the pool; if she avoids conversation, just keep looking at the pool. Eventually she'll give up in disgust and open the door to the barrow. Go northwest, then north to the barrow door. The Barrow Open the barrow door and enter the darkness. (Explore using your map screen; switch back to picture mode whenever something interesting is indicated by the text window.) When the lights go out, Nada will disappear for a moment. Wait a few turns. When she returns and the lights come back on, she'll drag you to the spring. Back to the Spring Refuse to drink; Nada is actually Metria in disguise! When Metria finally admits her trickery, she'll give you a "finder" to help locate Nada. Her instructions are bogus- actually, the lower the reading, the closer you are to finding Nada. Be sure to turn on the finder. Go back into the barrow maze and start exploring. The Maze (Lower Level) In this level of the maze you'll find a stone pestle, a mirror room, a plaque room, a switch room, and a metal pad room. You can get to the upper level of the maze through the metal pad room (find out how below). Mirror Room Look into the mirror to see how Kim's doing. Plaque Room Click on the plaque, then touch it. Flatten the paper you've been carrying around; put the paper on the plaque. Switch Room Click the metal switch, then flip it. Keep flipping each new switch that appears (16 in all). Then flip all of the switches off. When the big glowing reddish button appears, push it. A descending staircase will appear. Metal Pad Room (Passage) Click on the pad. Then get onto it. It will zap you to another level of the maze. You'll find the stone mortar and the "door ajar" on this level. The Maze (Upper Level) In this level you'll need to find a stone mortar and a room with a door that is ajar. "Door Ajar" Room Take the door. (It reverts to its real form- a jar.) Take the jar. You can't get past the ironwood tree unless you have some blue agony moss. You'll find that in the Dungeon (reached via the Switch Room). Dungeon Go to the Switch Room and go down the staircase. (If you haven't opened the passage yet, see "Switch Room" above.) Select only dialogue choices that keep you looking away from Nada. Then talk to the manacles. After Nada is free, open the jar (see "'Door Ajar' Room," above). Put some of the blue agony moss (on the wall just left of Nada) in the jar. Now go back to the "Door Ajar" Room and put the moss on the ironwood tree. Exit north. The Region of Fire Molten Lake Click on the tunnel end, then go to it. Go southeast to the room with the hot dog and the fireman. Talk to Nada, tell her she looks uncomfortable, and convince her to put her hair up in a bun. She'll do so and give it to you. Open the mustard (from your refrigerator back home) and squirt it on the bun. When the dog disappears, go northeast. Wall of Fire Take the charcoal on the path. Now you must return all the way to the Plaque Room, in the lower level of the barrow maze. Back to the Barrow: Plaque Room Click on the paper you put over the plaque, click on Rub, then click on the charcoal. Take the paper and look at it. Return to the room with the fireman. Firecracker Mix You can talk to the fire man if you want, but if you try to put lava in your jar, the fireman will give you a wineskin full of firewater. Put the buttercup into the mortar. Put the firewater into the mortar. (If the fireman takes away the wineskin, don't worry- he'll give it back soon enough.) Then use the pestle with the mortar. Put the mortar into the opening of the rock (a natural oven) at the left. Look at the mortar. When the dough has risen and is golden brown, take the mortar, it will yield Mack's cracker. Now go northeast to the firewall. Blast the Firewall Throw the firecracker at the wall. Wait a few turns until it blows up. Go north to the opening in the ceiling. The Opening Now tie the rope to the anchor. Throw the resulting grappling hook into the opening. Now go up. Region of Water Troll Bridge Go north toward the bridge. Be respectful to the troll and agree to perform a free service for him. Go north across the bridge to the three-pronged fork in the road. Fork in the Road Close the hydrant, then take the hose that's connected to the faucet at the left. Go south, back over the bridge, then go down into the troll's living room. Troll's House Go west into the troll's lab. Put the hose in the sink on the right. Push the middle blue button on the back wall, left of the metal locker. Turn on the faucet and enter the well to retrieve the troll's key. Go east into the living room and tell the troll you have the key. Troll's Puzzle Take any of the three puzzles. If you try a puzzle and fail three times, the troll will let you go. Go up, then cross the troll bridge. At the fork, go northeast to the cave entrance. Com-Pewter Com-Pewter's Lair Go east to enter the evil machine's cave. You'll have to play Com-Pewter's game. Whatever you do, DON'T RESIGN! Com-Pewter's Game: Round One To play, open the metal door on the cylinder at the right after each of Com-Pewter's questions, then put the right letter in the cylinder and close the metal door again. The answers to the first round of the game are: s to make the word spears d to make the word dates p to make the word pecans e to make the word steer a to make the word lamia Com-Pewter's Game: Round Two Same rules as Round One. The answers are: o to make the word moose b to make the word cobra f to make the word fleas e to make the word panties t to make the word tangles Of course, you don't have a t in your tray. But you can use one of two other "T"s you've picked up in the game- either the golf tee from the fairway or the teabag from your kitchen table. Disabling Com-Pewter Open the metal door again. Put the virus you got from Grundy into the cylinder. Close the metal door. After the various cut-scenes, exit to the northeast. The Region of Air Ma Anathe's Shack Enter the shack and talk to Ma Anathe. Take the windsock from the wall at the upper left. Exit to the west. Go southeast to the ogress. Ogress & Son After your dialogue with the ogress, go northeast to the Ogre Boy. Put the windsock on the vent. The grateful (but ugly) Ogre Boy is now one of your companions. (His face will appear beneath Nada's.) Go northwest to the long and winding road. Long and Winding Road Take the windbag lying on the road. Go southwest to the shack. Fix the Cart Now that Ogre Boy is helping, attach the cartwheel to the broken cart. Click on the cart, then select Push. Take the Sail and go northeast, then north into the strange cave. Sailboat Put the sail on the boat, open the windbag, then untie the line. Guardian of the Mountain The answers, in order, are: error, airedale, window, air conditioning, errand, windbag, airplane, airbag, windmill, breeze. Go northeast to the bottom of the staircase, then go up three times until you come to the "Mountain Closed" sign. Take the sign and retrace your route back to Ma Anathe's shack. Good, Bad, and Ugly Give the sign to Ma. After she gives you the ugly potion, exit the shack and go southeast to the ogress. Give the ogress the potion. She'll let you pass to the southeast now. The Gap Chasm Gap Animals Just keep talking, and eventually you'll end up at the Chasm, where you'll be forced to switch companions. Go with the flow; you'll now have Jenny Elf and Sammy Cat. Gap Dragon Talk to the cloud, Cumulo Fracto Nimbus. If you insult him enough, he'll dump snow on you and Stanley Steamer, making the dragon harmless. Outside Humfrey's Castle Front Gate After the cut-scene and the dialogue with Jenny, move your cursor up the wall directly above where Sammy scratches the ground until you find the loose brick. Press the brick and flip the switch. Go north to the moat. Drawbridge Click on the bridge, then select Draw and click on the moat. Keep this up until the bridge is completely drawn over the moat. Go north to the front door. Front Door Knock. Talk to the eye, then exit south. Go northwest to the moat serpent's head. Loc Pic Monster Click on the jar in your inventory, then select Fill and click on the cricket (the tiny black + hopping around near the serpent's snout). When the serpent falls asleep, go east to its tail. Go northwest to cross the moat on the serpent's coils. Then use the crowbar (from the troll) on the grate and go down. In the Tunnel Click on the end of the tunnel, then select Go to. Remember the clue from the voice at the front door? (He said, "For one to gain entrance...") Push (in this order) the switches numbered four, one, and two. (Get it?) Inside the Gourd Humfrey After your conversation with the wizard, look at the hypnogourd he gives you. Then go northeast to the mansion. Cellar You can't get past the zombie. Go northwest to the cellar door. Click on the door, select Unlock, then click on the lok pic (from the serpent). Open the doors and go down into the cellar. Move your cursor around until you find the key, and the twine. Take them both. Then look for the door, click on it, select Unlock, and click on the key. Open the door and go north through it. Sliding Stairs Tie the twine to the lever. Go north up the stairs. Top of Stairs Push the red button on the left wall. Skeleton's Study Take the bottle of pills by the chair. Look at the third book from the left on the mantle. Get the Cane Use the Pain-B-Gone on the pane of glass. Take the cane. Now go upstairs, and use the cane on the hook in the ceiling trapdoor. Go north through the trapdoor. Attic Click on the sword, then move the cursor to the prize goblet and click again. You'll throw the sword at the goblet. Bedroom After the cut-scene, answer the telephone. Congratulations!!! You've beaten the Game!!!
