When the game starts you are standing at a crossroads. To the left is Port
Foozle, to the right is an old well, and behind you is the path to the
Monastery (now the Inquisition Headquarters). Head toward Port Foozle. At the
fish shop on the edge of town look at the controls near the loudspeaker. Turn
the volume on the Inquisition loudspeaker to maximum. Look at the display case
in front of the store. While the speaker is spouting propaganda grab the stuff
in the display case (Light Mead and a plastic six-pack holder).
Turn around and go to the dock. Use the winch a few times to hear everything
the magic fish has to say. Place the six-pack holder on the hook and use the
winch again. After the fish leaves get the Lantern from the Box.
Go to Antharia Jack's shop and show him the lantern (Use the lantern with the
door). After he lets you in he'll offer you a cigar and go looking for his
wrench. Take a cigar from the box. Jack will fiddle with the lantern (and hit
it a few times) then send you back outside, keeping the lantern for himself.
Go to the end of the street. Look at the Talking Grand Inquisitor doll and
light it with the cigar. Turn around and jump inside the barrel. After Jack
gets hauled away by the Inquisition Police return to his shop and pick up the
lantern. While in the shop you can also find a computer that is running

volcano with a river of lava. The correct picture on the second is the tower
with the "Z" on top. For the third column you have to create a complete
window. Match the sections so that the entire window is visible, ignoring the
rest of the image. Click on the window that appears to enter GUE Tech.

quickly before it changes back and go down the hallway and listen to all four
parts of the message from Belboz.
