{2} Story

A man that came straight from graduating from the Hero's School of
Correspondance, heads to a town named Spielburg which seems to be
in trouble for his first adventure. He wants to become.. a Hero!
After he arrives there is an avalanche that traps him inside.

He arrives at town and meets the sheriff. He hears about the
Baron and his lost children, and about Baba Yaga and the
Brigands and he has found himself his first adventure.

He heads to the Adventurer's Guild, logs in and reads the
bulletin board.

Soon enough he hears the ancient prophecy.
"'Comes a Hero from the East,
 Free the man from in the beast;
 Bring the child from out the band;
 Drive the curser from the land.'"

If he fulfills these deeds he shall be known as Hero of Spielburg.


{3} Tips, Tips, and Tips


-Don't save all on the same save. Example:
 Thief1, Thief2, Thief3... etc
 That way if you screw up you won't have to start the whole
 game over!!!!

-Don't drink ANYTHING at the Aces and Eights Tavern! It's a waste 
of money, the Troll's Sweat is a COMPLETE waste of money, and the 
Dragon's Breath kills you.

-When you're burglarizing a house, make sure you're in stealth mode.
(bent over walking)

-The only safe places to sleep is the Hero's Tale Inn, the horse
stable inside the castle grounds, and 'Enry the 'Ermit's cave.
If you sleep anywhere else... you'll die. Fair warning.

-Pay attention to your stamina! If it runs out you can die, and
you don't lose stamina in just battles!


{4} The FAQ

Q: I can't kill things!
A: Get your timing right, when you see blood squirt from your enemy
   after you strike, you know you're doing something right.

Q: Can you steal Otto's yo-yo?
A: No. And wouldn't that be very inconsiderate of you if you did?
   Imagine how sad the little fella would be if you did that.

Q: What is the meaning of life?
A: 42

{8} Monsters

These things are simple and great for boosting strength and weapon
usage. There's a gang of them located in a screen in the forest.
You get a prize of money for killing them, not all the time

These things are easy... that's about it. The only prize for
killing them is a small satisfaction.

Brigand Warriors
A little training in strength and wepaon use and you'll be able to
take them out. You gte a money prize for killing them.

They only come out at night and are very tough. It will take a
while to be able to take them down. The prize for killing them
are Cheetaur claws, which you can sell to the Healer.

The Mantrays are very weird, very magical, and very tough to kill.
The only prize for killing them is satisfaction.

The only Ogre is outside the Kobold's cave. He's pretty tough
and takes a lot of stat building to be able to take him down.
The prize for killing him is.. a chest. If you manage to open
it there is a good sum of money in there.

Although you do not go into standard combat with the Kobold, he
is still a monster, and you do still fight him anyway.
Fighters attack him with sword, and magic users use flame dart,
thieves shouldn't attack him at all.
The prize for killing him is of course the key he's wearing.

Fred the Troll
The only Troll is inside the hidden passageway. It takes a LOT
of stat building to be able to take him down. He's TOUGH.
The prize for killing him is Troll Beard which you can sell to
the Healer.

Toro the Minotaur
Toro is a friendly Minotaur.. but not yet. Right now he hasn't
been aquanted to you, and will attempt to slaughter you. He is
also very tough but not much harder to kill then the Troll.
Fortunately enough you do not kill him, just injure him.
The prize for defeating him is money hidden inside his mace.

Brauggi Banter
The Frost Giant warrior, a.k.a Bruaggi Banter, can be killed if
you are strong enough I believe but that's just plain mean. There
is a way to help him so you both can benefit.

Just attack it, when it tries to fall on you, ready your weapon
and it will land on your blade.

Can someone please tell me if a Saurus Rex is in the game or not?
Email me at LoudKing@aol.com

{9} Bugs

The Centaur Farmer Bug:

off the game, and turn it back on.

End Game Bug:
Sometimes the end game screen shows forever and you are never
asked to save your character to a disk for the next Quest for
Glory game. You just gotta save ebfore the end of the game and
keep trying.

attacks you.

If there are any more bugs I haven't listed, email me at

{10} Walkthrough

Welcome to the walkthrough! I am going to skip most of the minor stuff 
and subquests in this and get right to the important stuff!

       A - Starting Out

!Starting a Hero!

Ok I'll tell you about all these raskly attributes.

Strength - This is the amount of damage you deal when you hit your
Weapon Use - This decreases chances of missing an enemy.
Intelligence - This uhh.. determines how smart you are...?
Parry - This is a fighter's ability. It's for like a strike-retreat,
        repeat kinda thing.
Agility - This raises stamina.
Dodge - This decreases enemy's chances of striking you.
Vitality - This raises health and stamina. Very good.
Stealth - This is a thieve's ability. This decreases chances of
          people hearing you.. basically a sneaking around skill.
Luck - I have no idea. I guess it's a miracle skill or something.
Pick Locks - Gee. What could this be. It increases chances of
             picking a lock. A thieve's ability.
Magic - This increases your ability to use spells. A Magic User's
        ability obviously. It also raises magic points.
Throwing - Increases chances of hitting your targer while throwing
           a rock or dagger.
Climbing - Increases your chance of climbing stuff.

Health - If you take damage you lsoe health points, if you lose them
         all you die. Add points to vitality to get more HP.
Stamina - If you climb, throw, or attack too much your stamina decreases
          and if you lsoe all stamina points you die. Add points to 
          agility or vitality to get more stamina points I recommend
          vitality though.
Magic Points - When you cast a spell your magic points decrease if you
               lose all magic points.. you die. Nah just kidding you
               just can't cast spells until you sleep or drink power
               potions to restore them. Add points to Magic to get more
               magic points.

To make a pure-bred Fighter:
Have strength at 30, Weapon Use at 30, Parry at 20, and Vitality at 45. 
Good combo. 

To make a pure-bred Magic User:
Have Strength at 20, Weapon Use at 20, Magic at 30, and Vitality at 40.
Good combo. You can have Vitality at 35, and Magic at 35 if you wish.

To make a pure-bred Thief:
Have Strength at 20, Weapon Use at 20, and Vitality at 40.
Good combo.

Imbred Characters.. I mean Cross-bred!!:
You can have a Fighter or Thief with Magic skill if you wish, but
I recommend doing this after you use the pure-bred characters.


The first part is real simple. Talk to everyone in town, about everything. For
you Quest for Glory originals, instead of the remake, talk to people about
Erana, Baba Yaga, Baron, Elsa, Spielburg, Brigands, Erasmus, and anything you
see around you or something they mention. I prefer the remake myself though.

Ok time to shop! At the Dry Goods store make sure you buy two empty flasks.
You'll need them later. If you're strong enough and have enough money, buy
the chainmail armor. Food isn't very neccassary. Buy extra daggers if you
really want to.

Now go to the veggie and fruit seller, the Centaur woman, and buy fifty
apples (five pairs, they come in ten) you'll need them later.

Okie dokie head over to magic shop IF you're a spellcaster. Buy all
the scrolls of course, you'll need extra dough of course so just sell
a lot of flowers from Erana's Peace to the healer.

The healer.. Well in order to boost strength you'll need some stamina
potions but I'll teach you that later on. There's other stuff but that
will also be later.

..are there any more stores? ..guess not.

!Boosting stats!

To boost your strength work at the horse stables daily.

Another way to boost strength and weapon use is to go to the
screen where the Goblins hide and then pop out to attack you.
Just slay Goblins, save, take vigor potions if you need to,
repeat. Being able to slay large amounts of these fruitcakes
will have you ready to kill the Ogre outside the Kobold's cave.
By doing this your vitality, luck, and agility will also increase.

To boost your magic, just practice your spells. Practicing
your spells will also increase your experience with the
spell your casting also.

To boost your climbing, just climb stuff.

To boost your throwing, pick up lots of rocks and throw them

       B - The Healer's Ring

This is really simple. You really positively want me to ruin it
for you??? I'm warning you!!! Ok. If you really do need help
read on.

First pick up a rock and throw it at the pterosaur (It's Pteresa,
Pterry's girlfriend!). It will fly away.

Is that all you needed!? If not read on.

Now climb the tree, and pick up the ring in the nest.

!Magic Users!:
Magic Users must cast the fetch spell.

Fighters have to throw rocks at the nest, and it will fall down.

!!!!!Back to normal programming!!!!!!

Once you have the ring give it to the Healer for your rewards.

       C - Saving the Baronet

Ok, defeat the Ogre outside the cave first. When you do,
enter the cave.

You'll see a big hungry bear. You can feed it food from the
Dry Goods store, or you can cast the Calm spell. Once you
have done so, go right.

You will meet up with the Kobold.. ok fork in the road!

Go up to it.. say hi.. and engage hostile battle.
Just have your sword up. Hit it. It will disapear, it will
pop back up. Attack it again. Keep repeating this pattern
until it dies. Take the key and the toadstools if you want.

!Magic User!:
This is fun. While it's sleeping throw a flame dart at it.
It will disapear. Every time it pops back up have a flame
dart flying at it. Keep repeating this until you've
killed the freak. Take the key and toadstools if you want.

This is unjustified. In this scenario, the Kobold gets to
live. Go into stealth mode, walk up to the Kobold, grab
the key, and the toadstools if you want, and leave.

!!!!!Back to normal programming!!!!!!

Now go back to the bear, and use the key on it.

       D - Visiting Baba Yaga

Ok the talking skull won't let you in, eh? He wants eyes.

Have you visited the Frost Giant warrior, Brauggi Barter?
Well give the huge freak fifty apples so his people won't
starve to death. He'll give you a glowing red gem.
Can you guess what you do with that gem? No, don't fence
it to Boris.

Go back to the talking skull, who's name you'll learn a lot
later, and give him the glowing red gem. He'll go underground
and you may now call down the Hut of Brown. 

Talk to the hut, make sure you're not near it or it will crush you.
Talk to it while it's down, again making sure you're not near it,
and tell it the rhyme. If the correct rhyme doens't show up, shame
on you because that means you didn't talk to anybody about it
and maybe not anything. If Hut of Brown isn't listed go ask
people about Baba Yaga and her hut.
If you do see Hut of brown as an option click it and you may

To your disfortune, as soon as you enter Baba Yaga freezes
you and turns you into a toad.
She gets the idea of eating mandrake instead of.. well you
and sends you off to get the mandrake root. 

The rules are.. get the mandrake at exactly midnight, and
bring it back right away. If you fall asleep (sleep all night)
you will die. If you pick up the mandrake root before midnight..
you die. So stick to the rules. There's only two.

Go to the healer and buy some undead unguent. It's a bit pricey
but if you don't buy it you'll die, so it's a good bargain.

Locate the graveyard, see that red root thing? That's the
mandrake root. Go pick it up. No don't! You'll die.

Once you know your way to the graveyward head to town.
Wait until midnight. Check the clock thing, if it says
it's the middle of the night it's time to head out.
Ok, ready? Put on your undead unguent and go to the
graveyard. Are you sure it's midnight? If so pick
up the mandrake root and bring it back to Baba Yaga.

Ahhh.. Fantastic. "Hey! What was my prize!" you say.
Oh that's real simple. You weren't eaten. Plus you
got a few experience and puzzle points.

       E - Obtaining the Dispel Potion

Find a White Stag in the forest. Chase it, but don't hurt
it. It will lead you to a tree. Walk up to the tree.

Holy Sishkabob. Something came out of the tree and started
talking. "Are you one with the forest?" she say. YES you
answer. Now do it. Say yes. She will send you off to find
a special seed.

I'll make it real simple for you. If you find a bunch of 
flowers spitting something you've found it. Now for the
tough part. You have to GET it. This will of course ruin
the flower's game of catch, but The Dryad really wants this
Fork in the road!

Thrfow rocks at the seed, NOT the flowers!!! After a while
of practicing you'll knock the seed out of the air, and
pick it up. It's kinda hard to learn but you need to
throw the rock a little bit near the flower currently
holding the seed. It takes practice, don't bother me
about it.

!Magic User!:
This should be real simple for you to figure out. Just cast
fetch spell. You won't get it first try. or second try. Or
third try either.. You'll be practicing fetch spell for a 
while. Eventually you'll catch that raskly seed.

Just climb that rock thing, and catch the seed (put your hand
on the flower currently holding the seed).

!!!!!Back to normal programming!!!!!!

Now bring the Spirea seed back to the Dryad. She'll tell 
you about the Dispel Potion (which apparantly has different 
ingredients in other Quest for Glory games).
The ingredients for a Dispel Potion in Spielburg are:
Green Fur
Magic Acorn
Flying Water
Faery Dust
Flowers from Erana's Peace

Gee.. where could that Magic Acorn be..?
Oh what's this thing that the Dryad carelessly dropped.
Oh I found the Magic Acorn.

To get the Green Fur just talk to the Green Meep. He'll
give ya some.

For Flying Water, just dip an empty Flask into the water
outside of 'Enry's cave.

For Faery Dust make sure you're carrying an empty flask,
then seek the faeries and dance for them. They're at the
mushroom circle where teh gravestone looking things are,
but they're there only at night.  Afterwards hold out your 
flask to them and they'll pee or whatever they do in it.

And for Flowers from Erana's Peace I'm not even telling you
and if you seriously need me to just run into a wall somewhere.

Ok once you have all the ingredients give them all to
the Healer.. WARNING!! Don't give her the last ingredient
until you're absolutely ready to defeat the Brigands
because the Dispel Potion disapears after a while!!!

       F - Attacking the Brigands

One day in the second week I believe, the rolled up paper
in the Aces and Eights Tavern will say "B- meet me at the
target range at noon, urgent -B". Something like that.

So what you have to do is go to one of the sides of the
target range screen at noon. You will spy on the two
traitor Brigands, and will hear about the key, and the
secret word which is Hiden Goseke (Hide and go seek).
Hiden Goseke will tell Fred the Troll to calm down as
you enter. This is good for Magoc Users and Thieves,
but personally the Fighter should kill him. Uh oh.
Fork in the road.

Throw a dagger at the remaining traitor Brigand.
Go down, over, and up to enter the middle section
of this screen. Search the dead pansy twice and
you'll find the key to get through the secret
passageway.  :)
Go to the area where the Antwerp is, if it's gone
half the job is done, if it's there attack it, and
it will flee, you can go over and finish it off if
you like.  :)
Once it's gone search for a keyhole. If you feel
yourself getting scared of the troll inside, put
your mouth on the fake rock. (Quest for Glory
originals should type "hiden goseke".. or if the
secret word is different in the original version
say the right one, whatever). After your decision
use your key on the fake rock.  :)
Once the door is open, and you decided to fight
Fred, then kill him, and take the path over, down,
and right to a new screen.  :)
You have run into Toro, the Minotaur. You have no
choice but to beat him up. Afterwards slam 
yourself into the gate and eventually it'll open.
I hope you brought healing and vigor potions!

!Magic Users!:
After you learned the magic word, leave. Because you
need no key you have a spell for that.  :)
Go to the area where the Antwerp is, if it's gone
half the job is done, if it's there attack it, and
it will flee, you can go over and finish it off if
you like.  :)
Once it's gone, if you are afraid of fighting the
Troll inside, put your mouth on the fake rock to
make Fred go away (Quest for Glory originals should 
type "hiden goseke".. or if the secret word is
different in the original version say the right one, 
whatever).   :)
After your decision, cast the Open spell.  :)
Once the door is open, and you decided to fight
Fred, then kill him, and take the path over, down,
and right to a new screen.  :)
Ok, you've met up with Toro the Minotaur. Now yet
for some reason this doesn't always work, cast the
Calm spell. But prepare for a battle anyway. After
Calming him, cast the Open spell and the gate will

After you learned the magic word, leave because a
thief don't need no stinkin' key.  :)
Go to the area where the Antwerp is, if it's gone
half the job is done, if it's there attack it, and
it will flee, you can go over and finish it off if
you like.  :)
Once it's gone, if you are afraid of fighting the
Troll inside, put your mouth on the fake rock to
make Fred go away (Quest for Glory originals should 
type "hiden goseke".. or if the secret word is
different in the original version say the right one, 
whatever).  After your decision, search the fake
rock for a keyhole, and pick the lock.  :)
Once the door is open, and you decided to fight
Fred, then kill him, and take the path over, down,
and right to a new screen.  :)
Ok, here you see Toro the Minotaur. This might not
work but you can go for it. Go into stealth mode
and start climbing the wall to the right of the
gate. If he catches you, just build up your 
confidence and attack the smelly beast.

!!!!!Back to normal programming!!!!!!

Ok, now you're ready to head inside the headquarters.
Now for Magic Users this place !may! be cleared out
meaning no archers are ready to kill you. But for the
rest you have to watch out for arrows in your back.

Now before you move! ..listen to me. Use the hand icon
on all those wire, rope, string things whatever you
want to call them, they're a brown color near the ground,
use your hand icon on them. There's two of them.
Now plan your walk route because you have to get to that
door fast. Now see two very small bridges? One of them is
fake, the real one is on the right. Get there, walk over
quickly make sure you've already inspected the tripwires
and head for the door. Also stay away from a rug in this
This is much easier to do without the archers, but it
doesn't always work out that way.

This part is a bit hard!! Once you enter this screen,
close the door and walk over to the drunk Brigand.
When the Brigands wlak to the door and look through,
wait until they all leave and then move the chair so
it is against the door. The chair and door I speak
of is on the northeast section of the screen. Once
teh door is blocked the three stooges will come after
you. Once they're almost dangerously close to you,
knock over the candelabra (big candlestick thing).
They'll start wlaking the other way. Once they
reach the end of the table, climb on top of the
table and grab the rope on the celing. You will
then trap them into the chandelier and stop the
other Brigands from entering BUT ONLY for a small
time so quickly enter the north door.

There that wasn't so bad. But look you have to deal
with this now. First talk to the Brigand Warlock about
everything, ok? Once your done and you're a Magic User
cast any spell and he'll flee so you can get him out of
your way. Now walk over the ledge so you plunge to
your death. But you don't. You start rolling on the
floor, touch the floor to stop yourself from rolling.
Open the box and crawl through. This is the hard part.
Pull the chain right near you and QUICKLY reach the door
you just opened. This will take a while to do.
Once you finally got inside the door (I would save right
about now if you ask me), attempt to open the door right 
near you and move into the passageway but stay there don't
go through the passageway. Once the fake door falls stand
on top of it and open the real door.

Ok the moment of truth!!! Here is the Brigand Leader!
Throw your Dispel Potion at the Brigand Leader to see
the true identity. If the Brigand Leader kills you before
you can try you may have to attaempt an attack then throw
the Dispel Potion real quick.
There! Spielburg is so close to its freedom! Now grab the
potions and the Magic Mirror on the table, if you're a Thief
character feast your eyes on the statue of the Blackbird.
You'll be chasing after that later on, but for now leave
through the exit behind the mummy case looking thing on
the northeast section of the screen.

       G - Payback for Baba Yaga

Return to Baba Yaga's hut, doing the same thing as first time.
Once you're inside, ready your Magic Mirror at her and you'll
reflect her spell and she'll turn into a big purple toad.
Her Chicken Hut will fly off and you won't see her for a

The game is completed. Congratulations.
