	This is the hint file for Bliss: An Interactive Harrowing.
It should get you through all the hard spots, but there is a 
walkthrough included at the end of this file, in case you really
get stuck.

What do I do in the cell?:

  * Did you ever see jail life depicted in cheesy old movies?

  * If you wanted to talk to your guard you would bang the bars
  with your tin cup.

  * HIT the DOOR WITH the CUP.


What do I do with the jailer?:

  * You can talk to him, he's real friendly.

  * Other than fine conversation, however, he's not much use.

  * You need to trick him into opening the door to your cell.

  * Also, take note of the knife he occasionally picks his teeth with.


Allright, allright!  How do I get out of the cell?:

  * If you call the jailer, and then hide under your bed, he'll
  think you disappeared.

  * Unfortunately, he finds you a few turns after he walks in.

  * You need to incapacitate him before he finds you.

  * Try LOOKing UNDER the BLANKET.

  * See those scaly legs?  PULL the LEGS.

  * You should note that this doesn't work unless the blanket is
  on the bed you're hiding under.


How do I get past the orc in the Entrance Hall?:

  * You'll need a weapon to get rid of him.

  * Your jailer used to pick his teeth with a nasty looking knife...

  * SEARCH the BODY.

  * Then, KILL the ORC WITH the KNIFE.


Argh!  More guards!  How do I get past them?

  * You could kill them with your knife, but even if you kill one,
  the other is sure to get you...

  * You need to separate them.  Notice the two statues?

  * They're about to fall apart.  You could break one easily.

  * Unfortunately, the instant you make that noise, an orc comes
  running and finishes you off.

  * You need to smash it from a distance, which means you need
  to throw something at it.

  * Too bad everything you have is too light, if only you could
  make something heavier...

  * The dirt in the flower beds are extremely loose.  If you
  put some dirt in the cup, it should be heavy enough to suffice.

  * DIG IN the BED, then PUT the DIRT IN the CUP, then THROW the CUP
  AT the STATUE.

  * One orc should go investigate the noise, and the other should
  return to dozing.

  * Just KILL the dozing ORC with your KNIFE and get out of there.


How do I cross the strip of flattened grass?

  * You can't.


How do I get upstairs in the store?:

  * You could just kill the shopkeeper with your knife.

  * That would be mean, however.  Also, It would get you no points.

  * You could just as easily distract the shopkeeper.

  * PUSH his DISPLAY, and then go upstairs while he's cleaning it up.


How do I get past the imp and the bear?:

  * The imp won't let you past while he's alive.

  * The bear won't let you kill the imp.

  * Solution: Kill the bear

  * Of course, the bear could maul you in seconds in close combat.

  * You need to kill it from a distance.

  * Get on the roof of the store and throw something heavy at
  the bear.  A knife, for instance.  (THROW the KNIFE at the BEAR.)

  * The imp is less than nothing in combat, so killing him should
  be easy without the bear to protect him.

  * KILL the IMP WITH the KNIFE


How do I open the cave door?

  * You need a crowbar to pry it open.

  * If you tried to go upstairs in the store enough times, the
  shopkeeper would pull a crowbar out from behind the counter
  and threaten you with it.

  * Just LOOK BEHIND the COUNTER when the shopkeeper isn't around.

  * Alternately, you could just KILL the KEEPER WITH the KNIFE while
  he's holding the crowbar.


How do I throttle my dad?:

  * If you just wait patiently, you'll do it.

  * If your impatient, just KILL your FATHER.


How do I get out of my room?:

  * All you really want to do is escape from reality.

  * Look at the book you find on your desk.

  * You're big into fantasy and drawing.

  * Try DRAWing the DRAGON ON the PAD, while holding the pencil.
  Drawing Margoth works too.

  * You could, alternately, escape from your room.

  * You need some help to shimmy down your wall if you're leaving
  through the window.

  * First, OPEN the WINDOW, the TIE the SHEET TO the DESK and go
  north.  Then just go wherever.


I'm stuck in a police car!:

  * Just sit and wait, you've completed the game.
