Discworld Strategy Guide

Act I

Get your pouch out of the wardrobe. After a visit to the Arch chancellor, you have to fetch the dragon-lair compendium. Wake up the luggage with the broom from the closet. Give the banana found inside the luggage to the librarian. Now we are off to show the Arch chancellor the book. The five ingredients of a dragon-locator must be found:

Staff:
Exchange the broom with the magical staff from Windle Poons. Wait until he reaches over to fetch some food, and leaves the staff unguarded.

Imp:
Talk to the apprentice wizard outside to learn how to open the gate. Take the frog. Go to the Livery Stable and take some corn out of the sack. Go to the Alley and visit the alchemist. Walk around the jumping floor tile. Use the corn on the flask and you can get the imp out of the camera. However, it is too fast at the moment. Go to the market square, and take a tomato. Throw the tomato at the tax collector. Take another tomato to find a worm. Get the string from the Toymaker, tie the worm to the string, and use it at the hole containing the Imp.

Dragon Breath:
Enter the Palace. Talk to the guards to bypass them. Once inside, get the mirror from the Fool's room. Place the mirror in Rincewind's inventory, and not in the luggage. Return to the Alley, step on the jumping tile, and climb up to the tower. Hang the mirror on the tip of the flagpole and use it to disturb the dragon. Kick the ladder down on your way back to the Alley.

Magic Coil:
Return to the Square and talk to the street urchin to learn how to pick pockets. Go to the barber and look at the hair roller in the woman's hair. Talk to her about it. Talk with the barber and pick his pocket as he thinks about the milkmaid.

Metal Container
Visit the psychiatrist twice to get the butterfly net from the wall. Place the butterfly net in the inventory, not the luggage. Go to the rear of the University and use the ladder to reach the window. Take the pancake with the butterfly net. Return to the Kitchen and take the frying pan

Give the five items to the Arch chancellor, then use the detector to find the hidden dragon's lair. It is located somewhere in the lower-left corner of the city.


Act II

The next task is to reveal the secret brotherhood, and to take a golden trinket from each member. With all the gold of the kingdom in our pockets, return to the Library. Talk with the sleazy man about the golden banana in his ear. He will sell the banana for the gold. Give the banana to the librarian to enter the L-space.

Travel to about twelve hours in the past to witness a thief stealing the dragon summoning book. Quickly leave the University as the thief did to find the secret hide-out.

Go to the Park, and place the frog in the mouth of the drunken Rincewind. The butterfly may now be caught with the net. Use the butterfly on the lamp on the street-corner where the monk usually stands. Bring the pot along.

Returning to the present, take the black robe on the clothesline near the toilet. Go in the Broken Drum and order something to drink. Take the tankard. Behind the barman is a bottle with counterwise wine. Talk with the barman about the bottle. Take the glass.

Travel to the past again. Immediately go to the secret Hide-out. Turn the left drainpipe in the direction of the door and wait until the thief arrives. Use the glass to listen on the right drainpipe to hear the secret password. Disguise yourself with the robe and join the ceremony.

The identities of the members of the brotherhood will be revealed. The next task is to get their golden items:

Mason:
A gate pass is needed. Go to the Broken Drum in the present time and talk with the scared man. Visit the Inn and take the sheet from the bed. Travel to the past and return to the Inn. Use the sheet to disguise yourself as a ghost and repeat the events that the scared man stated. Note that he did not reveal everything in his story. Return to the present and talk to the scared man again. Return to the past and repeat the events completely. Take the gate pass. Return to the present time and show the pass to the gate guards. Walk to the Edge of World. Look at the coconuts and shake the tree. Use the butterfly net to get the coconut. Stop at the mountain pass when returning to the city.. Take the egg and the feather. Go to the Barn and take the screwdriver. Use it to poke a hole in the coconut. Return to the Market Square again and talk with the street urchin. He will tell you the secret handshake if you prove you are a man. Return to the psychiatrist. You will be allowed to go upstairs after a short wait. Take the inkblot pictures and use them to get past the palace guards. Talk with the peasant inside the Palace. You can now enter the shades. Return to the past, stop at the kitchen and take the corn flour. While in the past go to the toilet and read the graffiti on the inner side of the door. Go to the shades and find the House of Negotiable Affection. Talk to Big Sally and give her the egg, the flour, and the coconut. Return to the present and give the bloomers to the street urchin. The urchin will reveal the secret handshake. You now have a new skill and a bra. Visit the mason in the shades. Use the new skill on him and to get his golden trowel.

Thief:
Use the bra with the ladder to get to the sleeping thief in the hovel. The bra will allow the ladder to be dropped silently on the hovel. If you try to get the key from the thief, he will turn away. Use the feather to get the golden key. Remember to take the ladder.

Dunnyman:
Get a donut from Dibbler and give it to the Dunnyman. Visit the milkmaid again and take her note to the barber. Give the barber the note and use his apparatus on the Dunnyman to get his gold tooth.

Fishmonger:
Return to the past. Enter the Broken Drum and start a fight. This may be done by looking at the picture behind the little man, then turn his glass around when he is not looking. After the troll joins the fight, use the ladder on the shingle outside the bar and get the drumstick. Return to the present, and use the drumstick to ring the gong in the dinning-hall. Take the prunes that are outside the University. Walk to Nanny Ogg's house in the Dark Woods. Once there, fill the pot with the custard from the cauldron. Go to the fishmonger. Tie the octopus with the string. Pour the custard in the toilet. Place the octopus in the toilet. Place the prunes in the fishmonger's caviar to send him to the toilet. Take his golden belt.

Once inside, use the garbage can on the Fool. Use the bubble bath on his bathtub to get his cap with the golden bell.

Chimney sweep:
Get the hogfather doll from the Toymaker. Take the fireworks and gunpowder keg from the crate at the city-gate. Take the matches from the Broken Drum.

Use the string on the powder keg as a fuse. Light the fuse with the matches from outside the house, in the drainpipe. Take the golden brush

Give all six golden items to the dragon. Talk to the dragon and return to the Market Square. Buy the carpet from Nanny. When she asks for a kiss, steal her custard book. Travel back to the past and get the dragon-summoning book before the thief steals it. Exchange the cover of the dragon book with the cover of the custard book. Place the fake dragon book back in the empty spot in the library. Allow the thief to steal the fake book.


Act III

The next task is to find items that make a hero.

The Old Timers suggest that heroes need a posing pouch. The Amazon Warrior states that a mustache and a magic sword are needed. The Wizards suggest a magic talisman.

Selecting the paper bag will reveal the leeches. Use the bag or the leeches to knock out the palace guards. Enter the palace and find the dungeons. Use the worm on the mouse hole. Remove the rat's disguise to get another imp. Put this imp in the camera. Go to the fishmonger and get the octopus picture. Go to the house of Nanny Ogg, and talk about the truth potion that is behind her. Eat some of the custard tart and take the potion when she waits for a kiss. Follow her wool to find a sheep.

Act IV

Get the key from the tied-up Lady Ramkin and visit her estate. Unlock the dragon cage and enter it. When you step in the molten pile, do not let Rincewind turn around. Force him to move forward.

Throw the tart with the love custard at the dragon.


Note: For v2.0 of Discworld, once you have Mambo, he must be filled with coal from two of the following three places: the forge in the Dwarven mine, the brazier in the dungeon, or the cauldron in Nanny Ogg's house. The lit firecracker may then be used.
