Well, here's another solve by the man himself.  Thanks go to Neural Plexus for his little help.  
Anyway, this game was
excellent and was well worth the time.  The graphics are truly amazing and the sound track 
was pretty pleasant also.
What really amazed me about the game was the intro when they did the focusing from hand to 
head and then to the
window.  That was pretty cool.  Overall, smooth animation even on a 286 (very enjoyable).

Now, let's get started:


We start off as Brandon the grandson of... your grandfather.
Pick up the garnet (red jewel) on the table.
Pick up the note from the table.
Pick up the saw from under the table.
Click on the big pot (you get an apple).
Leave this place.


Two screens to the right you will find a pond of (salty) water.
Click on the pond and get a teardrop.
Proceed to the right.
A leaf should fall and will turn into a (green) peridot.
Pick up the peridot.

(On your way around this place, you will find an Amethyst. If you do   find it, pick it up also.  
It's a purple jewel.)

After you pick up the peridot, go up and then left.
Here is the Forest Altar.  Pick up a lavender rose here.
Go to the right.  (The Amethyst usually appears here.)

Let's proceed back.  Go left, left, down, left, left, left, left.
Here lies a half-dead willow tree.  Use the teardrop on the willow.
Merith comes a long at this moment and asks you if you want to play.
Merith has the marble so follow him to the right.
Follow Merith until he has disappeared.

Go to the south.  Go south again and then to the left.
There's Herman.  He tends this bridge, which is now broken.
Talk to Herman.
Give your saw to Herman.
Leave the cave to the right and go north and north again.
Go all the way to the left until you can no longer proceed that way.
Now go up and enter the church building.

Brynn enters the room.  Talk to Brynn.
Give Brynn the note.  She will decipher it for you.
Give Brynn the lavender rose.  You now have a silver rose.
Leave this place and go south.
Go all the way to the right and then up.

Merith should be here.  Just watch.
Pick up the marble when Merith is gone.
Go to your right.
Here is the forest altar.
Use the marble on the altar.
Use the silver rose on the altar.  You now have the amulet.

Now go left and all the way south and then left again.
You're back in the cave, and by this time, Herman should have fixed up the bridge.
Now you can cross the bridge safely.

Once across the bridge, proceed to your left.
Enter the hut.
Talk to Darm the wizard.  He will tell you to find a quill for him.
Leave the hut and go south.
This is a small forest and is a near quadilateral shape so it is not hard to find your way around.

During your exploration, you will find  certain gems and jewels.  
It would be convenient to put these in
front of the golden plate altar once your inventory is full.

Look for three items.  An acorn (on a tree), a walnut and a pinecone.
Once you have found these items, go to the screen (at the bottom of the area) 
where there is a hole in the ground.
Drop these three nuts into the hole.
A Pseudobushiahugiflora will appear and will give you the first stone to your amulet. 
 It allows you
to have the power of healing.
Now go north a few screens until you see a bird nest with a bird on it.
Click on the yellow stone on your amulet.
Pick up the quill.
Go back to the hut and give the quill to Darm.  In return, he will give  you a magical scroll.  
You can try
this scroll out if you wish.
Once you have the scroll, Darm will tell you about the birthstones. 
The  first birthstone you seek is at the
fountain in the river.
Go to the river and click at the bottom of it.  Voila, a SUNSTONE.
During your exploration around this forest, you should have found  quite a few gems and jewels.
(i.e. Onyx, Topaz, Opal)
Anyhow, the other three birthstones you need are in order: (SUNSTONE) GARNET, TOPAZ, and RUBY.

To get rubies, grab a few from the ruby tree.
Use the yellow stone on  your amulet after you've gotten your rubies.
Once you have all the right stones and have placed them in order, you will get a flute.

Now go to the bottom right screen of the forest.
Here is the entrance to the fiery dragon cave.
Let's go in.

Well, here's ol' Malcolm trying to stop you.
Once he throws one of his knives at you, throw it back at him.
Malcolm will chicken out but he shields the cave now.
Here's your chance to use your flute.

NOTE:  Before you enter the cave, make sure you have some empty slots in your pockets.  
You will no longer need the flute nor the note.
           Nor do you need any gems.   Drop the apple outside of the cave. So you should only have
		a scroll when you enter the cave.

Enter the cave.


The Labyrinth is pretty deep and dark. If you wish to explore this labyrinth on your own, you can
draw a grid  map for yourself.  It'd make it a lot easier.

Here I will just direct you through the labyrinth from the cave entrance where there is a pond of water:

down, left, left, left, up, up, up, right, up, up, left, left, left,

Okay.  Put all the rocks on the counterweight thingio.  The gate opens.
Let's get out of here.
Go to the (wishing) well.
Drop in the golden coin.  Et voila, you have a moonstone.
Let's go back into the cave, and into the Pantheon of Moonlight.

To make your life easier again, start at the gate and go:

right, up, right, down, down, right, up, up, right, up, right, right.

Here we are at the Pantheon of Moonlight again.
Use the moonstone in the altar.  It should fit nicely.
Now the two purple wisps will combine into one and combine with you.
You now have a purple stone in your amulet.
Eager to find out what the purple stone does?  Save it and see.
Click on the purple stone.  Your are now a ball of (purple) moonlight.


right, right, right, right, down, down, left, down, left, down, right,

Here we are.  You're at a river of fire.  You sh~~
Now I'm going to let your worry about your inventory.
When you run out of room, drop an item somewhere, but make sure you can
find it at your convenience.

Go to your right two screens.  You will be clobbered by a tree.

You will wake up in Zanthia's home.
After a brief conversation, she will tell you to fetch magic water.
Pick up the empty bottle.
Go left three screens.
Here you meet Malcolm.
Malcolm has taken a magic lamp (or whatever) from the fountain.  You have to get it back.
I think you go all the way down, one screen to the left, and a few  screens up.  You
should find a place on fire.  If you are not in the  right place, find it yourself.
Once you find this place, use your magical scroll once more.  This will  be the last
time you use this scroll so you can throw it away if you like.
Get the lamp and find your way back.
Use the lamp on the magical fountain and get some water.
Drink it.  You now have a blue stone in your amulet.
Get some more magic water.
Go three screens to your right to Zanthia.
Give Zanthia the magic water.
Another brief conversation with Zanthia and she'll tell you to gather some blueberries.
Go two screens to the left.
Here would be a great place to drop items which you might need later.
Such as the emeralds, gems, jewels.
Blueberries are:  extreme South, extreme Right, Up, right, up. Somewhere there. It shouldn't be too hard to find.
Get one blueberry, it's all you need.
Go back to Zanthia and she'll probably tell you to get some fresh blueberries.
Go get another blueberry.  Come back to Zanthia and she should be gone.
Put the blueberry in the pot.  The liquid should turn bluish.

|| Here are the potions which you want to make:               Amount: ||
|| RED) RUBY + (RED) EXOTIC FLOWERS = RED POTION               (2)    ||
|| (YELLOW) TOPAZ + (YELLOW) TULIP = YELLOW POTION             (1)    ||

Go get your sapphire, rubies, tulip, topaz, apple and rose back in forest 2.  You need the apple
and rose for later on in the game. Even though you've used the jewelry, they should reappear.

Make sure to click on the purple stone before you re-enter the cave.
Once in the cave.  Go all the way down and all the way to the left.
Get the items

To get the EXOTIC FLOWER go back to Zanthia's place and click on the carpet.
You've discovered a secret doorway.  Go in.


Well, the exotic flower, should be to the NORTH EAST.  (UP AND RIGHT).
The exotic flowers are on a beach where there are two golden unicorns at
the side of a chopper landing place.  Pick one up.

Go and mix your potions now.
Once you have a blue potion, a yellow potion, and 2 red potions.
Go through the secret doorway again.

From here, go:

 2 screens down

the right.  Click on the door.

Drink the purple potion.  You're inside.
The pipsqueak wants something good.  So why not a rotten apple?
Give the pipsqueak the apple.
Go outside and get the royal chalice.
Once you have the royal chalice, let's go to the chopper landing site.
(You know, the one with the two gold unicorn statues)

Once you are there, drink the orange potion.
