After you visit Greater Borphee for the quest The Baron and his Boy, where do you go next? I pressed the link for the Encyclopedia of Frobozzica, but it brought me to this place where it said 404 Not Found, so I don't know where to go, because if where you're supposed to go won't let you go there, what are you suppossed to do? I'm completely stuck, so any replies would be great. If you can help, I would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks a lot, awesomest2.0

Lord knows why, but head to Flathead Mountains next. I am missing something but for the life of me I cannot figure out why it is related to Encyclopedia Frobozzica, but got there by trial and error.

The rest of the location hints you'll receive in this quest are much more straightforward!

Have fun.

Well, the link was supposed to take you to an out-of-game site which hosted the contents of the encyclopedia. I think the encyclopedia was included in one of the Zork games and some folks have since posted the contents up to the net. If you google the name of the encyclopedia, you can find other links that work and the entry for the Retreat tells you that it was in the Flathead Mountains. It seems the developers were lazy and decided to rely on a source not under their control and when that source went away, didn't correct the link.

I wasted a lot of AP on that step of the quest as well. But in a way, it was for the best as one of the steps in the quest requires you to go to a level 23 area and I was 22 at the time. So the exp gained before I thought to google the encyclopedia helped.

Here's a hint: the letters in that phrase stand for other letters. It's a cryptogram, so to speak..i.e. - a = x, etc. However, I'll put two spoilers here in case you get frustrated. Read the first one, and if that doesn't help, go with the second. That one should do it for you.

Hint #1:
 
Hint #2:

Thanks Selaroc! It's the Ruins of Pheebor, yet I ran out of Action Points exploring it. I'll have to wait till tomorrow. Hey, I also saw Spoiler under Others when writing a post, so that would be an easy way of making a spoiler for anyone who wants to know the cool trick.

Not to spoil the next quest... But on a different toon than Swith I did the lvl25 quest and only received half of the reward. I've still yet to figure out why/how this is. Following threat pertains: http://forums.joltonline.com/showthread.php?610204-Quick-Questions-About-Potions

Swith for several of the quests you need to go back to the base where you picked the quest up. That, or the AP bonus will tick over at the next general 'reboot' or whatever when everyone's APs are refreshed.

Is that what you were wondering? I hope this helps. I can't remember what happened with Slevyas with this quest but seeing as how I didn't even know there was an AP bonus as well as the shirt, well I am pretty clueless as usual.

I got both after going back to the origin of the quest. Make sure your quest log goes from "Quest Active" back to "Quest Inactive". I got the AP immediately after completing the quest..so not sure :/

Hi, everyone, it's me again feeling noobish as usual. If anyone is still watching this topic, now I need help with the level 30 quest. I've searched everywhere and leveled two times since I started the quest, and I still need the first location! Anyone who knows, please reply.

Ugh the lvl30 quest, A Wizard and his Coco. I wasted a couple days of AP the first time I did this one. Smile

The general rule of thumb for this quest, and others, is to always goto the base after each step and always check your mailbox even if there isn't a new message notification.

But this first step doesn't really make any sense... Period.

Clue 1
Spoiler:
 

Research spot -- http://www.thezorklibrary.com/history/00-encyclopedia.html

Clue 2
Spoiler:
 

Clue 3
Spoiler:
 

WTF Solution
Spoiler:
 

The rest of the clues are much better. This first step really took about 90AP to get right the first time after much encyclopedia reading. Several of those 90 were used in places for zero exp.

Wow, thanks a lot. And now I know where the encyclopedia is because I had trouble finding it, as in the earlier posts. Now I'm trying to find out where the hotbugs are. I read about it and it says ''Hotbugs at DM's Lair'', and I don't know what DM stands for, but I'll keep searching everywhere anyways. Thanks for the help, though.

Yeah, I've done so much now that I'm on the 10th part and probably the last location-searching part in the quest. But I couldn't have done it without my action point- giving potion I bought and my level 3 Gent sidekick(You may know that it gives a bonus to giving quest messages, and on another note I renamed my sidekick ''Mr. Old Guy'' just for fun,) so thanks for everything.

Totally, and now I'm done with the quest and got that 300,000 zorkmid reward, bought a really good two-handed weapon, donated one of my pretty good weapons and traded in the other for another 200,000 zorkmids, so I came out doing good. Thanks for all the help, Swith.
