Preface

The game contains contextual hints, you can access them by typing hint. Using the hints will probably be more satisfying than using the walkthrough.

Note also that both the hints and the walkthrough will guide you to a winning ending but not necessarily the best possible ending.

To navigate the bayou note that the first letter(s) of the plants are compass directions. You need to follow these directions 5 times to get to the mambo's hut. (If this isn't clear you can use the hint command which will tell you which direction to go in.)

Note that to get past the kraken you'll need to have either working cannons (which we started the race with but may have lost in the mean time), rum (which you can loot from the Spanish galleon), improved sails (which we should still have), a magical item (mysterious eh?), or know the sirens' beautiful song (which you can pick up just by listening).
