Finishing with "strict" play



  • I haven't finished the game even once but was wondering if it was possible to finish the game without stealing anything or using magic in a way it shouldn't be (the "fetch" bug). Even harder, is it possible to finish without using magic at all?

    My main concern is stealing keys at the moment but I'm sure other things will come up.

    No spoilers necessary (and moving things before you pick them up isn't what I mean) but I was just wondering if it can be done.

    Its amazing how "tsk, tsik, nik" can mean anything from "There's a bomb in the bus, get help!" to "I'm hungry, feed me"
    In case of ambiguity about anything I say - choose the nicest interpretation.



  • Yes, it is possible to finish without cheating. I completed the whole game before I'd even heard of the Fetch bug. As to finishing without using magic, I suppose it's possible - if you don't count using the Crolna, since that's absolutely vital. It would just make it a lot harder. ;)

  • You're a good Samaritan cache, a Kiwi helping an Aussie. Very kind of you :)

  • Anzac solidarity. ;) As long as no-one mentions sport, we get along just fine, thankyou. :)

  • Hmm...on the outside they all pretend to be good sports...

    "Yes."



  • The answer is much appreciated.

    As far as sport goes - we take no prisoner's when we play each other. But to the rest of the world we present a united face. After all we claim many of NZs greatest exports as our own, Crowded House and Sam Neil to name a few (but they can keep the sheep).

  • LotR was filmed in New Zealand...what does that tell you?

    (Kidding, of course. ^_^ )

  • Change that to, 'Fuzzy white ignorant masses that blindly follow.' May help avoid some confusion. ;)

  • Wait, so Kiwi's are white and fuzzy? (not to be confused with the brown fuzzy fruit variety)

    What type of kiwi are you referring to? Both the bird and the fruit were brown and fuzzy. (I'm going on the fact that the people aren't brown and fuzzy too. ;) )

    Kiwis are sheep?

  • No, a Kiwi is:
    (1) A fruit (Properly the 'kiwifruit')
    (2) A flightless bird that is the nation bird of New Zealand
    (3) A Human New Zealander

  • Heheh, one time cache had been absent for some reason or another and Ody and I speculated that the sheep had revolted and cache was busy defending the citizens of Dunedin from the fuzzy horde of rebels.

    Don't sheep outnumber people on the south island by like 10 to 1? When you think about it, when a privleged minority (people) are opressing the majority (sheep), a revolt is boun dot happen. I hope the sheep treat their former opressors well when they rebel...

    Hmm...I think I finally figured out what cache meant by his location: The land of the long white cloud, its referring to all the sheep. ;)

    "Yes."



  • I wonder if anyone can juggle sheep…
