Welcome to the Discworld II No Spoilers Walkthrough!
The point of this game is to use your head. However, it makes it really hard for you
to do that. Firstly, you can't even see half the items you're supposed to pick up.
Secondly, the hints are very obscure and hidden in a load of rubbish. Third, you
can't even see whether or not it's possible to walk to a certain place all that well.
So here are my tips to help you do it yourself without resorting to the Spoiler
TIP NO.1. SUPERTIP. When you're stuck (which will be about 90% of the time), and you
don't know what you're supposed to do with half of the seemingly useless items you've
accumulated, just pick it up and use it on another item in your inventory, or try
looking at it or Using it. You'll get some of the clearest messages in the game.
TIP NO. 2. When Rincewind says that something might be important later on, he's
usually trying to be funny. When he says that something's a hint, IT IS. When he says
that you're on the right track, or that it's a good idea, he's right.
TIP NO. 3. It might be easier to remember hints the game throws out if you leave the
subtitles on. This does ruin a few nice one-liners, but hey, you can't have
Intro Screen: X selects/enters, Triangle cancels.
During Animation: X cancels.
During Speech: X cancels segment, O skips to next piece of text. (A segment is the
whole speech for a single character; a piece of text is defined by the subtitles. In
other words, pressing O makes the next subtitle appear and skips the current one.)
(For the following keys, I set "Action" to O and "Examine" to Triangle.)
On Regular Screen: Square walks to the cursor position if possible. O picks up or
interacts with an item. Triangle gives a description of the item. Select brings up
the menu screen (menu controls are the same as on the intro screen; Select closes the
menu). Start pauses the game. L1 (or pressing Square on the Luggage) brings up the
Luggage inventory screen. R1 (or pressing Square on Rincewind) brings up Rincewind's
When Cursor Is An Item: Pressing O uses the item with whatever the cursor's on.
Everything else is the same.
When Cursor Is A Hand: Pressing O fades the screen out and in to the next
destination. Pressing Square walks to the edge of the screen and THEN fades out to
the next destination. Pressing Triangle tells you where the hand is pointing to.
On Inventory Screen: Pressing Square on an item picks it up; pressing it again puts
it back. Pressing Circle Uses or touches the item. Pressing Triangle gives a
description of the item. Pressing X closes the screen.
LIST 1. ITEMS AND PLACES.
Since it's so hard to tell just where all the items are and which ones are just
background, here's a rundown of all the necessary items in the game and their
locations. How and when you use them is up to you! These are only the NECESSARY
items, not ones that give you hints on how to proceed. Keep in mind that you may have
to use an item twice. Also keep in mind that you may NOT have to use an item twice.
Also remember: You MUST look at everything. And just because I say "Nothing" doesn't
mean you don't have to go there and look at things and talk to people! ("Walk off"
means the cursor turns to a hand. Items which are not there at the start of the game
are marked with a *.)

LIST 2: HINTS
Most people in DW2 are just there for laughs, so it's tough to weed out the people
who are just talking nonsense, and the people who are also talking nonsense, but
giving you hints as well. You should write down EVERYTHING these important people
say. Here is a list of the important people in the game ONLY as regards hints. (This
does NOT mean that they are important to the story! People who are important to the
story often do not give you hints! You'll still have to talk to everyone to find out
how to advance the game.)
ACT I: Imp, Mrs. Cake, Mad Drongo, Chuckie And The Jester, Beekeeper, Dibbler,
ACT II: Dead Collector, Mortician, Troll (in Main Set), Skazz, Uri Djeller, Makeup
Girl, Granny Weatherwax.
ACT III: No one, really.
ACT IV: Uri Djeller.
EPILOGUE: No one, really.
LIST 3: FAQ
Only use this if you're totally stuck! I'm STILL not just giving away answers!

items" listed above. Listen to everything all the "important people" have to say.
I'll wait. You back?
Q: Where is...
A: One more thing. Sometimes you'll be doing things from the end down (looking at
your goal and working up to it) and sometimes it'll be easier to do it from the
ground up (just putting things together and hoping something will come out of it.)
Just because you don't see any dribbly candles around doesn't mean you're on the
wrong track. Try everything you can think of first.
Q: Fine! Now, how do I get those damn mallets away?

A: You'll need a lure, and something to incapacitate it.
