´╗┐THE STAFF OF ZARANOL
 

This is an interesting game, though searching for the right verb is sometimes frustrating.
 

Some general hints:
 

Reading the book is necessary in certain rooms.
Different messages appear if LAN is absent or present.
You can avoid the room with the altar. If you find yourself there, REMEMBER LAN (CALL LAN 
doesn't work) DRAW CIRCLE will get you out. There is a hint given about that though it's
more 
obscure than most.
Avoid going back to your room.
You can avoid the torture room east of the room with the bat.
There are only 5 objects you can carry, excluding those that are worn.
Some you should not drop (the cap, the mirror), some you cannot drop (the food), some you 
should only drop in certain places (the lamp). 
I am unsure if you need to wear all the things that are worn in the following walkthru, but they 
worked for me.
Don't wear the crown. 
There are some red herrings, but they are good ones.
You need the staff to kill the guard and bat.
