The Forest

Get the jewel and note from the table, then take the saw from beneath the table, and look in the big pot to find an apple. Now head outside and go down to the ground. Walk east twice to reach a pond, and catch a teardrop. Head east again and get the peridot. Walk north and east to the forest altar, where you should get the lavender rose. Walk east and collect the sapphire (it will be on this screen or at least somewhere nearby). Now walk west, west, south, and west 4 times to reach the starting point.

Head west and use the teardrop on the willow - Merith will appear. Follow him until he disappears, then head south, south, west to find Herman. Talk to him and give him your saw. Go outside again and head north twice, then west as far as you can. Walk north and enter the temple. Talk to Brynn and give her the note, then the lavender rose (you will get a silver rose). Head east as far as you can, then north. Pick up the marble when Merith is gone, then go east and use the marble on the altar. Now use the silver rose on it to get the amulet. Grab a purple rose while you are here. Go back to the cave (west, south as far as possible, west) and cross the bridge.

Over the Bridge

Head west and enter the hut. Talk to Darm and you will be told about a quill to locate. Exit the hut and walk south to enter a small forest. Walk around and gather gems - just drop these near the gold altar when you inventory gets full. You also need to find an acorn, walnut and pinecone. Drop these into the hole to the south of the area to receive the first stone on your amulet (for healing).

Talking to the guy on the bench will reveal information about a wounded bird. Head northwest to find it, and use your healing power to receive a feather. Give this to Darm in his hut, in exchange for a magical scroll. You will now learn about the birthstones you must collect. Get the sunstone from the river near the fountain, a tulip from nearby, and a ruby from the tree with the snake. Remember to heal yourself after getting poisoned. Place the sunstone and three other stones in the altar (the other stones required change each game, so just keep trying), and you will get a flute. Go back to see Darm again, then head to the southeast to the serpent's grotto.

Try to go inside, then after Malcolm throws a knife, throw it back at him. When he shields the cave, use your flute, then drop everything except the scroll and go inside.

Zanthia and the Forest

After a brief conversation, she will ask you to get some magic water. Go west twice to meet Malcolm again. Now go south, south, west, west, west, north, north to find a fire. Use your scroll again (then you can drop it) and grab the crystal ball. Head back to the fountain (south, south, east, east, east, north, north) and replace the ball.

Head northwest to find the cave, use the purple stone in your amulet, and head southwest to reach the first forest. You need to gather the tulip, apple and rose, as well as a topaz, ruby and sapphire, then head back to Zanthia's place.

Head north, north, east, east, east, north to find exotic flowers (actually orchids) - take one, then return through the passage to Zanthia's hut. Now make up these potions and collect them in the empty flasks lying around:

Click on the little door, then drink your purple potion to go inside. Give the pipsqueak your apple, then go outside and get the chalice. Go back through the trapdoor and to where you found the red flowers. Drink the orange potion (make sure you have a lavender rose, iron key and royal chalice).

Once you reach the island, head east and put the rose on the grave. You will receive the final stone on your amulet. Head east twice more to reach the castle, and click on the red stone. Use the key in the keyhole and go inside.
