Brandon's Forest

General Hints and Suggestions:
As with most quest-type games, you should always click on someone or something until you get the same response; this will make sure that you haven't missed some meaningful dialogue or a needed hint.
Save. Always save before doing anything or using anything which might be irreversible. This always gives you the ability to experiment with items, sometimes with quite unexpected and interesting results.

Just for fun, after saving, try doing something that's obviously wrong, or give something to someone, just to see what happens. My favorites are crossing the bridge before it is repaired, getting bitten by the ruby tree snake, or crossing the lava river.

The game is basically linear; you must solve each puzzle in sequence before the next is presented. Also, there are some puzzles that cannot be 'solved' until you have completed something else.

Some items in the game are randomly placed, and vary from game to game. Therefore, even though this walkthrough may tell you to find a certain item, it may not be possible to indicate exactly where it will be found. In this case, it will be necessary to wander around to find what you need. This is particularly true of the gems needed in the first part of the game. There are a total of 12 stones (Diamond, Peridot, Garnet, Ruby, Sapphire, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Opal, Pearl, Topaz, Onyx, Sunstone), which may or may not be needed to complete the Birthstone Quest. You will actually need three of them to complete the quest, but the exact gems needed changes with each game. You will also need some of these gems to make potions.

OK, enough chit-chat....let's get to the game!

The opening sequence explains Malcolm's escape, and shows his careless disregard for nature. He then visits Kallak in the Treehouse, and turns him to stone. You control the character of Brandon, Kallak's grandson, and must find a way to repair the damage that Malcolm has done to Kyrandia and the Kyragem.
