TIME ZONE (Sierra)
------------------

THANKS TO: SPLIT INFINITY BBS

MADE PRESENTABLE BY:  THE MERCENARY
***************************************

Wow, this is a big sucker!  Hats off to Ken and Roberta Williams.  It seemed  
like it took forever just to write the tutorial for this massive adventure... 
It must have been an eternity writing  the code to program it.  One can believe 
that it took the year they claim.  But the effort put in by those pioneers of 
the graphic  adventure certainly paid off, and I doubt another adventure of this 
scope and caliber will be seen for many years to come.

Well, enough of the editorializing...on with the tutorial.

First of all, there are a number of  time 'zones' that are dead ends... red 
herrings to frustrate your solving of the adventure.  They are as follows:

all time periods in Antarctica (you  freeze your buns off in all of them!)
Australia  1400 AD
Africa  1700 AD
Africa  2082 AD
South America  2082 AD
Alaska  50 BC
South America  1700 AD
South America  1400 AD
South America  50 BC
North America  1000 AD 

In each of these zones, you inevitably get killed or end up finding nothing of 
value to aid in your final objective on Neburon.

Also, I have not included a trip to  Australia 50 BC, where you find a rhea egg 
which, with a shovel, you can dig up and take.  Using the hat pin you find in 
Asia 1700 AD, you can  poke a hole in the egg and use it to carry water (which 
is found in  numerous zones) to drink when you get thirsty.  This happens in 
only a  couple of time zones, most importantly in Africa 1400 AD.  However, I 
have  found that by following the moves I describe, you can get back to the  
machine before dying of thirst and therefore you do not need to go to get the 
egg and the water.

As usual, everything between commas represents each seperate input and 
everything in parentheses is a seperate comment not to be inputted into the 
game.  Also, I have preceded each zone with its title.  These titles are 
enclosed in >brackets< and should  not be inputted into the game.
Also, most of the time when you input  'look', it is only there to pass some 
time in order for something to happen. Don't expect to find something new 
whenever you input 'look'.

This is a massive adventure, so I warn you to save the game often!!  I suggest 
that you save it after each zone you  solve.  While I have taken pains to assure 
that this tutorial is accurate, I have an early version of the game and newer 
versions may have changed  things slightly.  I may have also missed a typo or 
two, so please let the sysop know if you have run into a discrepancy in the 
directions given... I will try to update any faults in this tutorial.

Of course, follow all instructions on  disk switching when going from zone to 
zone....

Here goes!...
