Need help with Carnival of Regrets

(Brian Rushton) #1

After finishing All Visitors Welcome, I started playing Carnival of Regrets.

There are two cases where I know what to do but commands aren’t working:

[spoiler]I have the flask of varnish, which says I need to disguise its flavor, and the milksop, which says I need to add something to it.

I’ve tried PUT VARNISH IN MILKSOP, PUT MILKSOP IN VARNISH, POURT FLASK IN MILKSOP, MIX FLASK AND MILKSOP, OPEN FLASK,
ADD VARNISH TO MILKSOP, SPIKE MILKSOP, but none of it works.[/spoiler]

The second case is the strata:

I can click ‘DIG STRATA’, and it says ‘WITH WHAT’. I say “WITH SHOVEL” or WITH JAW and it doesn’t understand. I have the mastodon jaw. DIG STRATA WITH SHOVEL also doesn’t work.

Does anyone know how to resolve these issues?

Don’t know if you’ve figured it out yet, but I got a bit further than you did in this back in spring, and I checked my save file from back then. The two commands you’re looking for are

use varnish with milksop (after guessing a few times, I apparently checked the help and tried the most sensible command listed there)

and

dig with jaw (had a lot of trouble with this one)

Thanks! This is very helpful. It unlocked a ton more areas, so it should take me a while.
