Quest for the Time-Bird, The - Solution
SOLUTION FOR THE MARCH OF A THOUSAND GREENS
This is the domain of the Wizard-Prince BODIAS. As you will soon
discover, it's the "paradise" of the world of AKBAR. It is famed for
the beuty of tis countryside. The good people of this March live in
harmony with nature, especially the magnificent forest. Their ways are
peaceful and they will never attack our heroes under any circumstances.
A GUIDE FOR THE PLAYER:
Don't attack the gentle folk of Green March, otherwise they'll hide
from you for as lonng as you remain in their domain. You will, in that
case, only be able to meet the OLD ONES OF THE WOODS. Don't attack them
either; talk with them to find out about the various inhabitants of AKBAR.
Should the UNKNOWN KNIGHT or ROXANNA charm anyone of the opposite sex,
they will quit the Quest! The lure of blissful love in this green
paradise is irresistible. These two heroes can all too easily fall
under the amourous spell and become unavailable for the rest of the
BRAGON will also leave the group for a certain period, if he charms any
Ondines. In that event, the others will have to stay where they are and
await his return. If you leave without him, then BRAGON will be
abandoned in the THOUSAND GREENS and will be lost to the group for the
remainder of the Quest.
If you speak with the inhabitants, they will offer you rest or
refreshment. If you choose to rest, then your heroes will absent
themselves for a short while. Don't forget, though, that time moves on
even when your heroes take a break!
When you meet BODIAS, avoid attacking him. If you attack him, he will
die. And the forest, in perfect symbiosis with the Wizard-Prince, will
also perish. The March of a THOUSAND GREENS will burn and you'll meet
nobody at all!
ROXANNA mustn't charm BODIAS more than once, or he will believe she is
his daughter and escape with her, leaving the group without her

You will then find yourself in a picture where you can see a child.
Click on the foot of the tree to pick up a mushroom.
The UNKNOWN KNIGHT or ROXANNA should speak to the child. Otherwise the
child will be frightened and refuse to say anything of importance.
Should ROXANNA or the UNKNOWN KNIGHT speak to him, he will reply with a
multiple-choice question. You must choose the second option: "Very
well, what would you like?"
He will then say:"Thank you for the mushroom. Follow me".
There is only one exit.
After that, you must follow the child's instructions very carefully and
you will find BODIAS. When the child tells you to pass between the two
trees, take the little exit zone well to the left.
Once BODIAS is present, someone must speak to him. BODIAS should ask
three multiple-choice questions in a row. Choose, in order, the first

HINT ON THE SAND LIPS
In order to follow the advice we're about to give, you must first go to

the SAND LIPS.
You are advised to have both BODIAS and ROXANNA. You will arrive by
BALANT in the Chasm of Lights. You must click in the bottom left-hand
corner. Don't click anywhere else!
You will find yourself in a room in the palace of FAUL, Wizard-Prince
of the SAND LIPS. FAUL will be present along with two of his advisors.
Many actions are now available, but you should speak to him once. In
answer to his question, choose the first option, which is to spin a
gripping yarn. He will indicate his satisfaction. Click on the right-
hand door and you will be outside the city, on your way to the Temple
of Obivion. Click on the Temple, bottom-left, and your group will move
to the Temple entrance.
Go straight ahead.
You'll find yourself in a corridor with a staircase ahead and a stele
(a block of stone) to the right. Click left.
Now you're in a narrow corridor. Click at its far end.
You're in a corridor. Click right (above the stele, not far right).

Another corridor. Click on the far end, to the right, in the yellow
zone (WARNING, there are two passages near together).

call for her Furry and quit group.
BRAGON must now talk to himself. Choose the second answer to the
mutiple-choice question: "If only ROXANNA were here...".
You are once again outside with ROXANNA. Take the same path from the
beginning, to meet up with BRAGON. When ROXANNA and BRAGON are
together, click in the background of the picture. You will see a
funeral chamber, with a pyramid in the distance. Click on the pyramid.
Now you're standing before it. RUNES are engraved on its surface. You
also meet a character you probably already know.
Now BODIAS must be made to speak by one of your heroes. BODIAS will
decipher the RUNES. You will automatically quit this module, running as
fast as your legs will carry you!
