Q: I've eaten the truth apple, now what? A: Go across the street, then West. Talk to Ibrahim, the textile merchant. The textile merchant will reveal that he needs a veil he promised his wife.

The lamp merchant will give you a broom. Q: OK. who wants my broom? A: Go to the Inn (Caupona) and knock on the door. Give Achmed the broom. If you feel like it, spend the night there. When you leave the Inn, go East. Talk to the leprous beggar. Q: What do I give the beggar? A: Give the beggar a bag of charcoal. You may buy charcoal at the lamp merchant's (Lucernae). After you give the beggar the charcoal, go back to Mohammed's weapons shop. You will see a crying girl. Notice that her birds have escaped. Grain will help Ione retrieve her birds. Q: Where can I find grain? A: Ali, the grain merchant (Horreum) will gladly sell you grain. After you buy a bag of grain return to the crying girl (Ione) by Mohammed's and scatter the grain on the ground next to the cage. Q: Where should I go after completing all the tasks in the bazaar? A: Go back to the Seeress. Talk to her and she will give you the Strength apple. Do NOT eat it yet! The Seeress will tell you to go to Fatima's. Q: Which house is Fatima's? A: Fatima's door is marked by the star and crescent. Q: What should I do at Fatima's? A: Say no to all of her seductions. Ask her about the Grail, Test, Galahad, Catacombs and the Hierophant. Give her the purse and enter the door that opens to take the test. Q: How can I pass the Test of Symbols? A: To pass the test, you must have the symbols that Al-Sirat gave you when you asked him about goddesses and the information found on pages 9 and 10 of your Liber Ex Doctrina. When you have the symbols, put the correct symbol in the correct square. Fatima will tell you if you passed the test. Q: Where is the Hierophant? Where are the catacombs? A: The Hierophant is the old beggar who wanted charcoal. Talk to him and ask him to open the catacombs. If you have passed the Test of Symbols, he will give you the elixir. Q: What should I do in the catacombs? A: You should use your lodestone to find your way around. Look at the murals. You should locate a child's mummy with a medallion and a sarcophagus that opens. Search the catacombs until you find Galahad. Q: What do I do when I find the child's mummy? A: Stand close to the right of the child's mummy (not too close). Use your sword to get the medallion. Q: What do I do when I find the sarcophagus? A: Read the inscription on the lid of the sarcophagus, go up to the open end of the sarcophagus. If you have the medallion you can get the Golden apple, if not... well you can always restore. Q: I have found Galahad, what should I do? A: Give Galahad the elixir that the Hierophant gave you to save his life. Q: I keep getting bitten by a rat when I try to rescue Galahad! A: There is nothing you can do to avoid being bitten by the rat when you enter this chamber. From now on, your time is limited so do not delay. Give Galahad the elixir and leave this room. Find the statue of Aphrodite. Q: I've found the statue of Aphrodite. What should I do? A: Put the golden apple into the palm of her hand. You can get the golden apple from the sarcophagus. Q: I can't answer Aphrodite's questions. A: You can find the answers to her questions on page 10 and 11 of your Liber Ex Doctrina. Q: How do I get out of the catacombs? A: After you have saved Galahad, go to the statue of Aphrodite and put a golden apple into her palm. Answer all of her questions correctly and she will give you the directions on how to get out of the catacombs. Listen carefully and make a note of the directions she gives you. When the secret doors open, use the lodestone to determine which door to take. The lodestone will always point North. Take the stairs out of the catacombs after looking at the dead warrior's skull. Q: What should I do in the Temple? A: Walk all around the Temple so that you have seen each part of it. When the Saracen appears and challenges you to battle, eat the Strength apple. Eat it before you put on the helmet. This is also a good place to Save your game. Put on the helmet the Saracen offers you. You are then locked in battle to the death. For instructions on how to fight the Saracen, Read page 21-23 of your Liber Ex Doctrina. If you have difficulty defeating the Saracen, adjust the arcade mode to an easier setting. Q: I keep dying of poison! A: If you die of poison you must restore to the catacombs and try to accomplish your tasks after being bitten by the rat more quickly. Q: What do I do once I defeat the Saracen? A: Use the dove that Aphrodite gave you. Follow the dove until Aphrodite appears. Listen carefully to her words. Ask Merlin about the Spiral. Facing the spiral on the inside of the Temple (not from the stairs), move to the left. Count the places where each pillar once stood until you come to the remains of the sixth pillar. Push the pillar. Q: Where is the Grail? A: Beneath a broken pillar in the Temple. Q: A thief has stolen the Grail! What should I do? A: There is nothing you can do to prevent the thief from stealing the Grail. Chase the thief down the stairs and into the alley. Once you have trapped him in the alley, you may either kill the thief of show mercy by picking up the Grail.
