YOu have killed Smaug and found the treasure - a real thief!) NOTES: 1. All interactive commands are for guidance only. There is no guarantee that whoever you want to talk with is at the place at the time which the solution states. Otherwise you'll just have to go find him! There is no guarantee, either, that those persons will actually do what you ask them to. Hooray for intelligent NPCs! 2. If you come across Gollum, kill him right away. 3. Your capture in the cave and the trip across the river are not really necessary, but both things score you extra points. 4. If there's any wine in the barrel, try drinking it! 5. Since there are several score bugs in the game (mine being the extended disk version), like keeping getting points at Elrond's by asking him to read the map (!), I am not sure that this solution hits the 100% mark. It does take you all the way through, however. Jacob Gunness - 1/4-1990.
