As can be expected, this Walkthrough is a spoiler for the game. Please only use this as a last resort if you get stuck, and try not to read ahead of where you are in the game.
I can tell you from experience that I enjoyed this game much more by playing through it without any help than if I had just looked up the answers.
Throughout this walkthrough, I'll be putting things in Quotes, (" ") this means to type in exactly what you read there. Some solutions are simple to come up with, but only accepted in one grammatical form.
If you get lost, please refer to the Maps on the previous page.
This is not the only way to play this game. I have taken the 'direct' approach to completing the game, and with that in mind, you won't be going to every room on the map.
One problem with this game is the Thief (I.E. Footpad) He is a non-constant variable in the game. He does what he wants and shows up randomly. The best approach is to leave any room that he shows up in IMMEDIATELY. Always remember that whatever he takes from you, you will be getting back later in the game.
