I’m pretty far into this long game and having fun with it, though have hit a tough patch and the in-game hint system seems to have petered out. It has to do with a question of intelligence:
So I’ve got the whole map unlocked and solved a whole bunch of puzzles, but I can’t figure out how to get smarter than the dragon (I have two other outstanding quests, to help Priscilla recover her memory and to help the “war moron”, but the in-game hints suggest that it’s too early to solve those). From the cues I’ve picked up from trying a bunch of stuff, I think I need to use something to find something that will make me smarter, but can’t figure out what that would be – nothing in the museum or library seems to fit the bill, I can’t find anyone to borrow glasses from, eating fish doesn’t seem to be an option, there’s nothing in the wizard’s castle like an intelligence potion I can grab… I also can’t dress up as a librarian or a graduate to look smarter, and I already dressed up as Poirot/Parrot so that’s out. Hitting the dragon on the head and/or drugging him to make him stupider also doesn’t appear to be an option. Any nudges to get me on the right track would be greatly appreciated!
