Re: What is Brog?

thanks! you can find more info about the mushroom people here: http://www.ifarchive.org/if-archive/games/competition2000/inform/rtzas/RTZASsol/Secrets.htm I think that in all the Zork games, RTZ was the game that they omitted the most scenes and places from, what wouldn't I give to have at least the...

Glitches?  Bugs?

Can someone mention glitches/bugs they have found in their Zork games? My 9 year old son was playing Inquisitor the other day and did something that made him get the snap dragon plant BEFORE he cut it, he had not even gotten into Dalboz room yet, I asked him if he remembered what he was doing when i...

Re: What is Brog?

LOL!!! so it is something in between troll and ogre...  I appreciate that, I am not much of a reader, I need to read more I guess... however, I must admit, I did read A LOT in order to pass Nemesis, I remember writing notes all of the time and even drawing the elements, and the little rectangular pi...

Re: Return To Zork variations...

Another funny fact.  When Boos gives you the keys he says "my keys, sure yeah, I am too drive to drunk... can you pick me up a six pack while you're out?" In the Mac he says "my keys, sure yeah, I am too drunk to drive! (very cheerfully)... can you pick me up a six pack while you're out?" As you wal...

Re: Your Return To Zork Score

All right, I'll be fair, since in 1994 when I got this book I was obsessed with that fact, sometimes I'd go to bed thinking, "geez, it must be something so complicated" but its actually very simple, and most people just go on and on playing the game and they wont experiment. Some walkthroughs on the...

What is Brog?

I think he looks like Shreck, and Shreck is an ogre, but there's no talk in Zork about ogres... my 9 year old son is here and he says "mommy, trolls are hairy, ogres have no hair, Brog is an ogre!"  LOL :)

*throws a rock at tree*

wrong game mate, if you are a zorkian you should know that zorkians throw rocks at vultures, and hard boiled grue eggs at stalagmites (oops sorry I forgot trolls are not zorkians LOL) perhaps you're refering to trolls?

Your Return To Zork Score

Please keep in mind that if you answer 225, you must specify what you did in the game to recover those (2) extra points.  As of the book named "RTZ: Adventurer's Guide [Unofficial, Unauthorized...]" by Steve Schwartz, it clearly states that no matter how many times the author tried to get 225 points...

Re: Return To Zork variations...

Forgot one little detail about the Fools Memorial in the DOS version.  As everyone knows the colorful balls the memorial juggles change colors but they don't go in circles.  In the Mac version the balls do go around in circles, so the color change was not needed.

Interesting.

Re: Return To Zork variations...

Hey, I have a question.  In the Mac version if you threaten Mrs Peepers, she will say "I havent been a teacher all these years without learning how to... [you know the rest]".  If you do it 3 times she will make you type "I will not be a bully" three times on the chalkboard, and then you can proceed...
