1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


Rosella has travelled to the land of Tamir to help her father, who has become
terribly ill and requires a magic fruit to help him recover. Genesta is the
kind fairy of Tamir and has brought Rosella to her land using the last of her
magic. Her talisman was stolen from her by the evil fairy Lolotte, and she asks
Rosella to recover it for her as she will die without it. She warns that the
magic fruit will be difficult to find, as it is guarded by a snake on the other
side of a dangerous swamp. Rosella sets out to find the fruit that will save
her father, and the talisman which will enable Genesta to send her home.

===============================================================================


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.1.                            Exploring Tamir
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The game starts in the land of Tamir, where Rosella begins her search for the
magic fruit that will save her father. Walk one screen north and two screens
east to see a bridge. On the way you may pass a unicorn, but it is too scared
to come near Rosella at the moment. Stand at the left side of the bridge and
LOOK UNDER BRIDGE to find a gold ball. Walk north and east twice to arrive
outside an old house. OPEN DOOR to enter the house. Walk west to the parlor.
Stand in front of the shelf at the right side of the portrait and GET BOOK.
Walk east to the entry room and south to exit the house.

Walk west one screen and south one screen to see a small house built into the
base of a large tree. OPEN DOOR to enter the kitchen of the house. CLEAN HOUSE,
and after a while the seven dwarfs will return. They will initially ignore
Rosella, but after seeing the improved state of their house they invite her to
sit with them at the table to eat soup. After a while, the dwarfs finish their
soup and tell Rosella that they have to return to work. They all leave, but one
of them forgets a pouch on the table. GET POUCH and exit the house. Walk south
one screen and go through the doorway to enter the mine.

Drop off the edge of the path in the mine and Rosella will land safely on the
floor. Continue east to the next screen to see more dwarves working busily in
the mine. Try to GIVE POUCH to the dwarf with the green hat at the right side
of the screen and he will allow Rosella to keep it. He also gives an oil
lantern to Rosella in return for her honesty. Walk west one screen and walk up
the path to exit the mine. Head east one screen after exiting the mine to see a
worm on the ground. If the worm is not there, just exit and return to the area
until it is. GET WORM. From here, walk west four times and north once.

Rosella should now be in an area with a minstrel on a rock. If the minstrel is
not there, exit and return to the area until he is. The minstrel is a fan of
old music, but it seems he can't play any of his songs well at all. GIVE BOOK
TO MINSTREL and he will be so inspired by it that he decides to become an
actor. He gives Rosella his lute and then leaves the area. Walk two screens
north and one screen west onto an old pier. A fisherman will be fishing from
the end of the pier, but he will leave after Rosella has waited for a few
seconds. Walk east one screen and OPEN DOOR to enter the fisherman's house.

Walk to the table and GIVE POUCH TO FISHERMAN. He gives the fishing pole to
Rosella in return. Exit the house and walk west to the end of the pier. PUT
WORM ON HOOK. FISH from the end of the pier to catch a fish. Walk east twice to
the meadow where a creature named Pan should be playing a flute. Exit and
return to the area if he is not there. Try as Rosella might, there seems to be
no way to get Pan's attention by talking to him. PLAY LUTE and Pan will be so
fascinated that he stops playing his flute and walks over to watch Rosella
play. GIVE LUTE TO PAN and he will give the flute to Rosella.

From the meadow, walk east one screen and north one screen to see a pool with
columns at either side. Cupid should fly down and land in the water, but if he
doesn't appear just exit and return to the area. Walk into the pool and Cupid
will be so startled that he flies away, leaving his bow behind. GET BOW. Walk
south two screens to arrive at a pond, where a big frog wearing a crown is
sitting on one of the lily pads. Walk to the bottom-right corner of the pond
and DROP BALL. The frog picks the gold ball up in its mouth and swims toward
Rosella to return it to her. Move around to the top-right corner of the pond to
GET FROG. KISS FROG and he will change into a prince. Annoyed that Rosella
isn't a princess, he gives Rosella his gold crown and leaves.

Walk east three screens and south one screen to arrive at a waterfall. WEAR
CROWN and after transforming into a frog, Rosella will automatically swim
through the waterfall and return to human form on the other side. GET BOARD
near the cave opening and then enter the cave. The bones near the start of the
cave are a good clue that we shouldn't venture too far in. We will be returning
here later on, so just GET BONE from the pile for now and then exit the cave.
Walk west through the waterfall to return safely to the other side. Walk south
one screen and walk east up the mountain to see Lolotte's goons.

They take Rosella to Lolotte's castle, where she suspects Rosella of being a
spy sent from Genesta and puts her in a cell. You can walk around in here but
there are no items to collect. After a while, the henchmen will return to take
Rosella back to the throne room. Lolotte tells Rosella that her son Edgar has
convinced her to give one chance to Rosella to prove her innocence. She asks
Rosella to catch a unicorn that roams free in the meadows down in Llewdor, and
promises that Rosella will be set free after completing this task. After being
given this quest, the henchmen return Rosella to the bottom of the mountain.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.2.                         Finding the Unicorn
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Walk west five screens and south two screens to return to the fisherman's house
near the beach. Move west one screen into the ocean and save the game. Swim
west to the next screen and Rosella with either encounter a shark or avoid it
completely. If the shark does attack, just restore the game. Continue swimming
west through the ocean to arrive on an island. A peacock will be walking around
on one of the areas on the island, so walk around until you find it and then
wait for it to drop a feather. GET FEATHER and walk back to the south-east
corner of the island to return to the ocean. Swim east one screen and wait for
the whale to appear. Keep swimming and Rosella will be swallowed by the whale.

A bottle will be floating around in the whale's mouth that contains a note. The
note contains lots of references to other Sierra games, but reading it doesn't
increase the score at all. The aim in this location is to climb up the whale's
tongue, although that can be quite tricky as Rosella will slide off unless she
climbs up the correct path. Start at the far left side of the tongue, and then
keep alternating between climbing right and up until Rosella starts walking on
the top of the tongue. It's still possible to fall off at this point, so walk
right and up once again until Rosella is standing under the uvula at the top of
the screen. TICKLE UVULA WITH FEATHER to escape the whale.

Rosella still isn't safe from the shark after landing back in the ocean, so
swim north to the small desert island in the distance. You may want to save
if the shark is not around so that the game can be restored if he does appear.
After making it safely to the island, walk into the middle of the wrecked boat
at the right side of the island and LOOK GROUND to find a golden bridle. THROW
FISH to the pelican and he will drop a whistle that he was holding. GET WHISTLE
and then BLOW WHISTLE. A dolphin appears at the south shore and waits for
Rosella, so RIDE DOLPHIN across the ocean to return to Tamir.

Walk north one screen and east two screens to the wood. If the unicorn is not
there, exit and return to the area until he is. Before he walks into the next
screen, quickly SHOOT ARROW at the unicorn. The unicorn will not be afraid of
Rosella any longer, so approach the unicorn and PUT BRIDLE ON UNICORN. RIDE
UNICORN and Rosella will set off for Lolotte's castle, where her henchman once
again bring her to the throne room. Lolotte tells Rosella that she wants the
hen that can produce golden eggs, which is currently being kept in the ogre's
house. Rosella is returned to the bottom of the mountain.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.3.                           Finding the Hen
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Walk west two screens and south one screen to the ogre's house. If either the
ogre or the ogress sees Rosella, quickly exit and return to the area until they
are gone. OPEN DOOR but don't enter the house yet. If you are playing the AGI
version of the game, type the THROW BONE TO DOG command before entering the
house, as the game will not pause when commands are entered. The SCI version of
the game pauses when you type in commands, so there is no need to type in the
command outside the house on this version. Enter the house and THROW BONE TO
DOG, who will be so content with the bone that he forgets about Rosella.

With the dog out of the way, walk up the steps to the first floor of the house
and GET AXE from the right side of the room. Walk down the steps to the closet
and OPEN DOOR to hide under the steps. Wait in here until a message appears
about the ogre being in the house. LOOK KEYHOLE and watch him. He will eat his
dinner and then tell his wife to bring him his hen. Keep watching until Rosella
looks away from the keyhole. OPEN DOOR to exit the closet. GET HEN from the
table. Walk toward the front door to the house and the hen will squawk, which
wakes the ogre from his sleep. Quickly OPEN DOOR to escape the house.

On the AGI version, escaping from the house can be difficult as the game will
not pause when you try to open the door. The best way seems to be to approach
from the south side of the door, as the door opens very slowly and Rosella is
able to move through the gap if she approaches from the south. From the east
the exit is blocked by the door until it is fully open, by which time the ogre
will have caught up with Rosella. After escaping from the house, Rosella still
isn't safe from the ogre as he will continue to pursue her.

Quickly walk east one screen to be safe from the giant. Rosella finds herself
in a creepy forest where the trees will kill her if she walks too close.
Fortunately we obtained the axe from the first floor of the giant's house, so
USE AXE to cut the trees here and they will be so frightened that they won't be
a danger to Rosella any more. Walk north one screen and east two screens to
return to Lolotte's castle. She tells Rosella that she still doubts Rosella and
wants her to recover Pandora's box, though she doesn't know its location.
Rosella is once again returned to the bottom of the mountain.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.4.                       Finding the Magic Fruit
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Pandora's box can only be found at night, so we can take some time away from
Lolotte's quest to find an important item that will help King Graham. Walk west
one screen, south one screen and then east one screen. Enter the cave to see
three witches. The left witch will slowly chase after Rosella, so let's try and
avoid her first of all. Walk to the bottom-right corner of the cave and wait
for the witch to walk past the bottom of the cauldron. Now walk north-west to
the top of the cauldron and the witch should not be able to get past. The other
two witches will be passing a glass eye between them so that they can watch
Rosella. Walk between the witches and GET EYE as they pass it to each other.
Quickly exit the cave before the other witch catches Rosella.

Walk back into the cave to see that all three witches are crouched at the back
of the cave. They plead with Rosella for their glass eye, and throw a scarab
toward her saying that it will protect her from the undead. GET SCARAB and then
GIVE EYE back to one of the witches. The witches are still dangerous, so exit
the cave before they have a chance to catch Rosella. Walk south three screens
to return to the waterfall. WEAR the CROWN and Rosella will again transform
into a frog to pass through the waterfall. Walk east into the cave and LIGHT
LANTERN to start walking through the dark cave.

Save in each new room of the cave, so that you can exit and return to the room
if the troll does appear. Walk south one screen, then walk down to the bottom
of the room and walk east two screens. A very small opening can be seen at the
right side of the cave, although be careful as there is a chasm in this area.
Enter the command to PUT BOARD OVER CHASM. When Rosella says that she is not
close enough, walk a small distance to the right and try again. Keep doing this
until Rosella finally puts the board down near the middle of the area. Walk
across the board and Rosella will pick it up on the other side. Walk north one
screen and then go through the opening to exit the cave.

Outside the cave, walk toward the edge of the swamp and JUMP onto the grass
platform. JUMP ten more times and Rosella will land on the final grass platform
before an island with a snake on it. PUT BOARD DOWN but don't cross over it
just yet. The snake on the island is currently protecting the magic fruit on
the tree, so we need to find some way of distracting it first of all. PLAY
FLUTE and the snake will become temporarily hypnotised. Walk across the board
to the island and walk around the snake to GET FRUIT. The snake will return to
normal after a while, so quickly walk back over the board.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.5.                         Finding Pandora's Box
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


After avoiding the snake, JUMP back across the grass platforms to return to the
entrance of the cave. Enter the cave and walk south one screen. PUT BOARD OVER
CHASM and walk across it. Continue west for two screens and once again remember
to save after entering each new area in case the troll appears. Walk north one
screen and go through the opening to return to the area behind the waterfall.
Walk into the pool of water and Rosella will return safely to the other side of
the waterfall. Walk north one screen and the night will begin. Zombies try to
catch Rosella in the graveyard at nighttime, though fortunately the scarab that
Rosella took from the three witches will protect her from them. Walk west one
screen and OPEN DOOR to enter the old house.

The house has a number of ghosts that have left items in the graveyard and need
Rosella to bring them back. The first ghost is a baby that has lost his rattle.
Walk west to the parlor and LOOK GIRL in the portrait to see that her eyes seem
to be looking at the left wall. Walk to the left wall and LOOK WALL to see a
small latch. FLIP LATCH and walk west through the doorway into the tower. GET
SHOVEL leaning against the wall. Walk east two screens and south one screen to
exit the house. Walk west one screen to the graveyard and approach the grave at
the top-left corner of the area. DIG in front of this grave to find a baby
rattle. Walk east one screen and OPEN DOOR to return to the house.

Walk upstairs and go through the left doorway into the master bedroom. Walk
west one screen to the nursery and GIVE RATTLE to the ghost. Walk east and then
south to see a new ghost walk through the right doorway on the ground floor.
Instead of following him, walk south to exit the house and then west to return
to the graveyard. Approach the grave at the bottom-left corner of the area and
DIG to find the bag of gold coins. Walk east one screen and OPEN DOOR to return
to the house. Wait until the ghost enters the room and then GIVE COINS to him.

The new ghost is crying upstairs because she has lost her locket. Walk south to
exit the house and then go east to another section of the graveyard. Approach
the grave at the left side of the cross and DIG to find a locket. Walk west and
OPEN DOOR to return to the house. Walk upstairs and go through the right
doorway to enter an old bedroom where the ghost of a woman is sitting in a
rocking chair. GIVE LOCKET to the ghost and she will disappear. Walk south
twice to exit the house and then walk west to return to the graveyard. DIG in
front of the left grave at the bottom-right corner of the area to find a medal.
Walk east one screen and OPEN DOOR to return to the house.

Walk west one screen to the parlor and GIVE MEDAL to the ghost. Walk east and
south to exit the house and then walk east to return to the graveyard. DIG in
front of the grave at the top of the area to find a toy horse. The shovel will
break after Rosella has used it for the fifth time, but she won't need to use
it again. Walk west one screen and OPEN DOOR to return to the house. Walk
upstairs and go through the right doorway to enter the bedroom. CLIMB LADDER to
the attic. GIVE TOY HORSE to the ghost on the chest. After the fifth ghost in
the house disappears, Rosella is free to explore the house.

OPEN CHEST. LOOK IN CHEST to find a set of sheet music. Climb down the ladder
and walk south to exit the room. Go downstairs and walk west two screens to
return to the tower. Climb up two screens, making sure to save frequently as
the top screen has very narrow steps. You may find it easier to use the page up
key when walking up the steps. When the steps curve around to face south, it
can seem confusing as the up arrow is actually used to make Rosella walk up
them. At the top of the steps, SIT down on the bench in front of the organ.
PLAY SHEET MUSIC to open a small drawer. GET KEY from the drawer.

STAND up and walk back down the narrow spiral steps to the bottom of the tower.
Use the end key when walking down the steps to reduce the chance of falling.
Walk east two screens and then south to exit the house. Walk east one screen
and UNLOCK DOOR of the crypt using the key from the organ. OPEN DOOR and enter
the crypt. Walk east to the edge of the platform and GET LADDER to lower it
down to the floor. CLIMB down the ladder and a mummy will exit the coffin to
try and catch Rosella. She will be safe as long as she has the scarab. Walk to
the bottom-right corner of the crypt to see Pandora's box. GET BOX.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.6.                         Finding the Talisman
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


CLIMB back up the ladder and go through the doorway to exit the crypt. Walk
south two screens and east one screen to return to Lolotte's castle. Lolotte
wants Rosella to marry her son, Edgar. The henchmen take all of Rosella's items
away and she is then taken to Edgar's room. After a while, Edgar will walk up
the steps outside the room to push a rose under the door. Walk toward the door
and GET ROSE. GET KEY from the rose. UNLOCK DOOR and then OPEN DOOR. Walk down
the stairs to exit the tower. Carefully walk down to the bottom of the spiral
steps and then go east one screen to the dining room.

Go through the top-right door to enter the kitchen. Walk to the right cabinet
and OPEN CABINET. GET INVENTORY. Walk west one screen and go through the
bottom-right door. Walk east one screen and then walk up the spiral steps to
the top of the tower. USE GOLD KEY ON DOOR. OPEN DOOR to enter Lolotte's room.
SHOOT LOLOTTE with one of Cupid's arrows to kill her. Edgar enters the room and
tells Rosella that she can now walk freely around the castle. Before exploring
any further, GET TALISMAN from the table at the left side of the room.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.7.                          Journey to Genesta
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Walk down the spiral steps to the middle of the tower and then go west to the
hall, where the henchmen no longer try to catch Rosella. OPEN DOOR. GET HEN.
GET BOX. Exit the storage room and walk east one screen. Walk down the spiral
steps to the bottom of the tower. Go west one screen and then walk south to
exit the castle. Enter the stable and OPEN GATE to free the unicorn. Exit the
stable. Walk south two screens to return to the bottom of the mountain path.
Walk north two screens and enter the crypt. CLIMB down the ladder. DROP BOX on
the floor. CLIMB up the ladder and go through the doorway to exit the crypt.

CLOSE DOOR. LOCK DOOR. Rosella kicks the key under the door, preventing anyone
else from entering the crypt. Walk west five screens, north one screen and west
three screens to return to the island. Walk west one screen, north one screen
and OPEN DOOR to enter Genesta's castle. Walk west one screen and up one screen
to enter Genesta's bedroom. Walk to the side of the bed and GIVE TALISMAN to
Genesta to complete the game. In the ending, Genesta congratulates Rosella for
saving the land of Tamir. Rosella returns to Daventry and gives the magic fruit
to Graham on his bed, who immediately recovers and tells Rosella to keep the
adventurer's hat as her adventures aren't over yet.
