862.Command someone else to do this, too.
863.If only it were bigger. See (771).
864.Only works when you know every spell. Then see (874).
865.The landlady of the Inn is famous for "Old Mrs Wallops Original
Formula Orcs Blood Tonic" which is, alas, not to found in this game. It
is said to have a unique flavour, but no survivor has been willing or
able to disclose the details.
866.Very tasty! Give to the Dragon, so you can sneak past.
867.You need his Lassoo. To knock him down, see (250).
868.A human player, see (368). To avoid them, see (16).
869.Clean it to learn (732). Having problems cleaning? See (862).
870.Wear to keep warm.
871.The idea is to get a nice, simple effect which promises a lot of
potential, hence the almost-empty trellis, and that will look really
good for exactly a month. See (893).
872.In the area where you start.
873.Let her steal something from you. Then move away. See (861)
874.Cast it at yourself to earn promotion and the right to recruit

893.Then the bedding plants stop flowering, the trees shrivel and
the roses get terminal greenfly. But it's no longer your problem.

905.Say hello to Grok. See (770).
906.The half-Coin looks like a half-Moon and confuses it.

918.In part 1, only Denzyl will obey your orders. For the second
part, see (929,'.
919.You are Grindleguts the orc, as described in Peter McBrides'

929.Creatures must be subdued (956) and then recruited (225), before
they will obey your orders; though 'beings' created by magic will obey
automatically, see (333) and (335). You need the abilities of some of
the following creatures to finish the game: (324), (337), (380), (404),
(425) and (437).
930.A good weapon, but probably not worth the trouble of keeping.
931.Examine its Inscription to learn a spell, see (750).
932.Once through the Joust, see (632), you need to find where things

cross the Viaduct, see (560).

940.Not in this game.
941.Drop the Sack for it to hide inside. Then see (949).

948.Wear some things to earth the current, see (28) and (30).
949.Listen to what it's saying, see (723). Then recruit it; you'll
need its help later, see (6).
950.One of the main puzzles of Knight Orc is something you should
NOT do: i.e make a map. As you'll realise if you try mapping, only the
named locations have puzzles - see (4) for details -and it's a waste of
time to map the whole game. The interior areas (of which the Mountain is
the largest) are small enough to "map" in your head. Finally, please
note that future Level 9 games will not need detailed mapping, either.
951.This is metal and trails on the ground. See (964).
952.The exit from 'Paradise'. You can't enter, except when dead.

954.The 'real' appearance of game scenery. Wear the Visor to see
it's more conventional appearance. See (8).

in the game, learn and use the Shield and Cure spells.
956.Subduing a creature involves catching it, see (404); getting
past its defences, see (324) and (437); or proving your worth. see
(425). Denzyl, of course, doesn't need subduing.
957.Wear this to be completely enclosed in metal. See (964).
958.To open it, you need authorization. See (158)
959.Is this a hundred foot long yet? If not, see (693). If so, it's
long enough to span the Viaduct. See (972).
960.To catch it, see (914).
961.In the Scabbard. To remove it from there, see (614).
962.Beyond the Viaduct. See (654).
963.Has been lost, and slid away inside a small place. See (181).
964.With (28) and (30) together, you are completely protected by earthed metal. See (82).

966.Outwit the Knight, Orc-fashion. See (922).
967.Defeat the mad Monk indirectly. See (246).
968.Give a silver treasure to the Troll, as payment for crossing her
Bridge. To subsequently outwit the Troll and gain entrance to her Lair,
969.From here, you can see all the important places in part 1.
970.Once you're a Magician, see (780), anyway. See also (929). Its
main purpose is to solve the very last puzzle, see (997).
971.You need to get past the metal Door. See (958).
972.The idea is to throw it through the Ping (226). If you are

what's hidden in the hole.
975.Learn all the spells (690), recruit all the useful creatures
(929) and get everyone to the Exit. See (985).
976.He won't go outdoors without protection. See (245). Get him to
dispose of bothersome Humans, and then take his smoke to (247).
977.Deflect the Humans' attacks with (777). Then see (88).
978.The Line stops artificial creatures leaving, until it is deactivated (992).
979.Tie the Rope to the Spear and throw this.
980.Take everything and keep it.
981.Prove a tactile equivalent for walls. See (8)
982.The Vampire attacks unless you've got the (116). Groan.. But see
(685) for game background. Lure another creature inside, to be told
983.Open the Door to reach the Troll's Lair. See (968).
984.How should I know?
985.Get (324) to the Sensor to trigger it, deactivate the red Line
(992) and go to the Foyer. Then see (997).
986.See entries for the individual objects, creatures and rooms you
find here. See also (545).
987.Outside the Orc Lair, where you want to be. See (962).
988.A smoke detector. To trigger it, consider bringing the (324).

992.Command the Troll to open the Hatch, look inside it and put the
Mouse inside to chew the wires.
993.The original coin-op machines were excellent.
994.All humanoids in this game are wearing Visors, but this is the
only one that we are concerned with. When worn, it alters the appearance
of objects to correspond to the magical scenario of the game. When
removed, you see 'reality'. See (1009).
995.Needed for recruiting creatures. See (11).
996.Xenophobes who hate Orcs. Keep clear.'
997.Command the Troll to put the Rainbird
in the Kiosk, so it can peck the button there.
998.Carry it to open a Door, see (83). To get it where you need it, see (855).

1000.Attach to the Rope. See (959).
1001.Remove your Visor in the Forest (492).
1002.The way out of the game: your destination. See (985).

1005.See entries for the Grate and Bedrooms.
1006.Where the Valkyrie takes you - remove the Visor.
1007.An obstacle, unless you fly.
1009.To avoid you accidentally reading the game background, it has
been encyphered. To read it, simply replace each letter by the following
one: thus "dwznokd" means "example". If you do read this section, please
don't tell new players about it.

Spoiler Space for this...
Knight Orc takes place in a full-sized adventure game staffed by robots.
So you are not only an orc, but a robot orc. Robots and customers alike
wear full-face visors, onto which are projected images of the magical
landscape and the accident at the end of part 2 loosens your one.
Thereafter, raising the visor shows you "reality" while wearing it lets
you see what is going on in the game. It's not much fun being a robot
orc- because all the odds are stacked in favour of the human customers-
so your aim is to escape into the world outside. Now play on!!
