GNOME ADVENTURE WALKTHROUGH
-----
By PJ-1978, with additional input from, and many thanks to, Lurkio and Fuzzel

Notes on this walkthrough:
* When run on original BBC Micro hardware, this game can occasionally have glitches due to memory
conflicts. The BBC B+ in particular can experience problems when running the game.

* Additionally, there is a buggy version of this game on-line. At several points of the game,
notably the blue stone path location, and around the the Union H.Q., the bug causes the rooms to
cycle in an infinite loops. Ensure you are playing the fixed version of the game, uploaded by Lurkio
to bbcmicro.co.uk, else the game will be impossible to complete.

* There is an occasional glitch at one stage of the game where you are required to disguise yourself
as a gnome by wearing items in a correct order; Occasionally the game will not allow you to do so
even when entering the correct sequence. This bug seems to emerge when you pick up the items first.
To avoid it, simply Wear the items, there is no need to Take them first.

* This walkthrough attempts a fairly streamlined walkthrough, including taking / storing / dropping
items. Some instances where you can drop items when you don't require them may be changed at
your own discretion.

* To play this game through via BeebEm, simply copy the text in caps below, removing any lower case
