The WalkThrough
This adventure is HUGELY random. Normally, a walk through takes me an hour to put together, but this one took almost three days. The major problem is that when the postman rings, when night falls, when you get tired, etc. are all not predictable. My advice is to save game often (and with different filenames) and just keep bouncing back and forth instead of waiting … as waiting may make too much time pass.
