     !!!!!STRANGE LEAFLET QUEST!!!!!
    	My FAQ is about the Strange Leaflet in the kingdom
     of loathing. You get from the council of loathing when you
     reach level nine. This is a really basic guide where I 
    really tell you what to type and you just sit back and get
     it done. But of course if you want the satisfaction of
     completing it without help I strongly suggest you read no
     further.

    2.Advanced guide
    
    This part of the guide will get you the exact same items
    but it will tell you exacty what the game said. I don't 
    suggest using this one and wading through all this meaningless 
    text. It is more for quoting the leaflet!

    You are standing in an open field west of a white house.

    You fish a piece of crumpled parchment out of the 
    fireplace.
    
    You're in the house. The house's only furnishings are 
    a plain wooden table, a single chair, and a fireplace 
    on the north wall. The fireplace is unlit.)
    
    read parchment
    (It appears to be a scroll for a spell called 
    'gnusto', which can be used to copy a spell from 
    another scroll into your spellbook 
    (by typing GNUSTO (name of spell)). Potentially useful!
    
    You're in the house. The house's only furnishings 
    are a plain wooden table, a single chair, and a fireplace 
    on the north wall. The fireplace is unlit.)
    
    light fireplace
    (You poke your torch into the fireplace until it catches,
     you twisted firestarter. Soon a blazing fire lights up the
     shadowy corners of the room, revealing a pair of large 
    boots.
    
    You're in the house. The house's only furnishings are a 
    plain wooden table, a single chair, and a fireplace on the

    You are standing in an open field west of a white house.

    house.)

    gurgling stream to the south, and a path leads north into a
     dense forest. There is a small mailbox in front of the 
    house.)
    
    south
    (You hesitate for a moment, and then cross the stream. 
    Every molecule in your body explodes at the speed of light.
     Well, okay, not really. You do get a little mud on you 
    while climbing up the opposite bank, though. Yuck.
    
    
    You are on the southern bank of a wide stream. A path leads
     south into dense, dark forest.)
    
    south
    (You hesitate. The forest is thick with old, gnarled trees
     and tangled masses of brambles, and precious little light
     pierces the thick canopy. If you go in there, you probably
     won't be able to find your way out again.
    
    You are on the southern bank of a wide stream. A path leads
     south into dense, dark forest.)
    
    South
    (You buck up your courage, and stride bravely into the 
    forest. You get lost almost immediately.
    
    You are in a maze of twisty little forest paths, all alike. 
    Gaps in the dense, forbidding foliage lead north, south, 
    and west.)
    
    North
    (You push north through the thorns and branches. At least,
     you think that's the way you went.

    (You push south through the thor...
    
    
    All right, by now you're probably as sick of this stupid 
    maze as I am. Let's skip ahead a bit.
    You stumble out of the dense forest into a clearing.
    
    You are in a clearing, with a particularly tall tree 
    growing in the middle of it. On the ground, you see a pile 
    of leaves.)
    
    climb tree
    (You hoist yourself into the lower branches of the tree and
     start climbing. It's a long and difficult climb, and 
    eventually you're forced to stop and rest.
    
    This tree is unusually tall -- you can't even see the 
    forest floor any more, as you've climbed above the canopy.
     There are several other things to see here, though: a 
    nearby branch holds a small bird's nest, which contains a 
    large egg encrusted with precious jewels; a soccer ball is 
    wedged in the branches out of your reach, with a roadrunner
     perched on it, holding a large ruby in its beak; and there
     is a bowl of petunias, also out of your reach, with what 
    looks like a scroll entangled in the flowers. )
    
    get egg
    (You have to stretch to reach it, but you manage to get the
     egg without losing your grip on the tree.
    
    This tree is unusually tall -- you can't even see the

    looks like a scroll entangled in the flowers.)
    
    throw egg at bird
    (You take careful aim, and pitch the egg at the roadrunner.
     It flaps out of the way with a squawk, dropping the ruby,
     which plummets past you.

    down
    (You carefully make your way back down to the forest floor.
    
    
    You are in a clearing, with a particularly tall tree 
    growing in the middle of it. On the ground, you see a pile
     of leaves.)
    
    search leaves
    (You dig around in the leaves, and find a large ruby, which
     you pick up.

     scroll entangled in the flowers.)
    
    
    throw ruby at bowl
    (You carefully lob the ruby into the bowl -- two points! 
    The roadrunner flaps excitedly up to the bowl and scrabbles
     around in it for the ruby, knocking the scroll out of it 
    in the process, and then flies away. You snatch the scroll
     out of the air as it flutters down.

     A nearby branch holds a small bird's nest, and a soccer 
    ball and a bowl of petunias are wedged in the branches, 
    both out of your reach.)
    
    Gnusto CLEESH
    (you copy the CLEESH spell into your spellbook, which 
    apparently you have.)
    
    climb up
    (You eventually reach the top of the tree, and discover to
     your surprise that it serves as one leg of a massive 
    table. You carefully crawl over the edge of the tabletop 
    and look around in amazement.
    
    This massive table is laid out for a light meal of epic 
    proportions. The Giant himself is watching you intently, 
    with his chin in his hands. "How about a guessing game?" he
     asks. The Giant sets two shot glasses, as tall as your 
    knees, on the table in front of him. The glass on the left
     is filled with a glittery, pungent liquid. The one on the 
    right is smoky and thick. "One is poison and one is not," 
    says the Giant. "Guess right and I'll take you into 
    Fairyland.")
    
    cleesh giant
    (You cast Cleesh at the Giant. With a loud POP, he turns 
    into a huge fat toad, as tall as yourself. "RIBBIT!" it 
    rumbles angrily, then hops away, knocking over the glasses.
    
    
    This massive table is laid out for a light meal of epic 
    proportions. The two giant shot glasses have been knocked
     over, and the contents have spilled and drained away. The
     Giant's pinky ring lies in a puddle on the table.)
    
    get pinky ring
    (You hoist the ring up off the table, and onto your 
    shoulder. Heavy, but not unmanageable.
    You acquire an item: giant pinky ring

    epic proportions. The two giant shot glasses have been 
    knocked over, and the contents have spilled and drained 
    away.)
