Peasant’s Quest

(Sniff) Brings back memories. Sometimes I miss my 286… many an hour was spent playing Kings Quest 6 on that thing. Of course it was all I could play, my 20 MB hardrive couldn’t hold much else!

Peasant’s Quest

UPDATE: I’ve posted a complete walk-through — it’s ALL SPOILERS, so open at your own risk. If you follow it precisely you should have 150/150 points (I did).

    Peasant’s Quest is hilarious.

    I too have fond memories of playing King’s Quest 6, but (and I don’t mean to brag here) I played it on a 386. Somehow, my hard drive wasn’t any bigger, though.

    Mmmmmm. Pixels.

  • jon Says:

    I don’t think KQ6 ran on those machines. I had a 486 w/80MB HD. KQ1-4 were definately 386 and before.

  • Nick Says:

    Oh it ran — not super well, but well enough to be playable. I had a 286 11Mhz (12Mhz with Turbo!). It had 640k RAM + 384k Shadow RAM.

    Keep in mind this was the floppy disk version- no music, no voice, just graphics and bleeps from my PC speaker…

  • dave Says:

    Does anybody remember the pack-in promo card for a song about “A Girl in the Window” or something like that? There was a promo piece in there urging people to call in to their local radio station and request the song. I think there was some version of it during the game. But I had the crappy 386 with the crappy sound, so I’m pretty sure that on my system it sounded something like “beep beep beeeeep beep”.

    Btw, I loved KQ6, but always thought that as a whole, the Monkey Island series was better. Anyone else agree?

  • Nick Says:

    Ah yes — the ‘song.’ I never did get to hear it. I lived in a small town so even had I called they wouldn’t have known what I was talking about.

    I never played the Money Island games.

    How about Space Quest? I never did finish SQ5…

  • James Says:

    Just came across this blog when searching for stuff on “Peasant’s Quest” (which, in case you all weren’t aware, has been released! http://www.homestarrunner.com/disk4of12.html), and I noticed your thoughts re: KQ6. The song was called “Girl in the Tower,” and for those of you (un?)fortunate enough to not hear it, you can get an MP3 of it from the man who wrote it at this page:
    http://www.queststudios.com/quest/collection.html
    Yeah for schmaltzy video game music. 🙂

    I never ran KQ6 on a 286, but I remember KQ5 ran just fine. That was the DUAL-floppy version – both 3.5″ and 5.25″ disks!

  • Phlegatu Says:

    The Monkey Island games, or the first two anyway, were indeed better than most of Sierra’s adventure games of the time. I started out with King’s Quest, Space Quest, etc, and loved them, but they had some serious problems that Sierra never really addressed properly. Remember getting far into a game only to find that a bubblegum wrapper hidden under a random bush in scene 1 is necessary to get further, yet there’s no way to backtrack to get it? Or getting killed a thousand different ways just for exploring, experimenting, or not clicking on the exact right spot? The worst offender for these was probably LSL2 – I’d have to say Sierra’s worst game and probably one of the worst games of the genre ever made. Didn’t help that it wasn’t that funny either. Anyway the LucasArts games seemed to be made by people who actually played them and understood what was fair and what wasn’t, so pretty much all the puzzles made sense even if they were difficult, and you were never caught in an impossible situation where the game could not be finished. There was even a gag in Monkey Island where you get “killed” by falling off a collapsing cliff and a Sierra-style game over screen comes up (your character returns shortly and explains that he in fact survived his fall and is ok).

    Course now the MI games suck and LucasArts probably won’t make any more adventure games, period. I guess the same goes for Sierra, except for this new 3D LSL game.

    By the way has anyone played Kings Quest 7 and up and are they any good? Also has anyone finished Peasant’s Quest? I smote the Kerrek and got the soda bottle and now I have no idea what to do about the naked man or anything for that matter.

  • qat Says:

    How did you get a soda bottle?

  • crazeman Says:

    I “technically” beat the game, which means I finished, but I was 9 points short of full completion. CAUTION: SPOILER!!!!!!!! Well, at the end: it turns out Trogdor is unbeatable and you get burninated. You are remembered for generations to come, and a statue is placed outside of your burninated cottage in your likeness.

  • qat Says:

    Details, man! I’m stuck with the naked man behind the tree, the fisherman sitting in the lake, and the burnt tree with a lamp. I’ve done something on every other part of the map.

  • neveryoumind Says:

    tell me how to get the riches and i’ll tell you what to do with fisherman, (i dont know what to do with naked man)

    you get chicken feed in the cottage with the widow and kid, then you throw this feed into the lake and the old man uses it as bait and gets fish and goes back to inn which he runs, but he also says you dont look like a peasant and until i get the robe i cant stay at the inn or open the pantry

    so how to kill the Jhonka and/or get the riches? this is after killing of the kerreck with the arrows from the archers and the part of fence poor gary knocks down (i assuming i get the horse grease for the fire from the woman in cottage?)

  • qat Says:

    To steal the riches, walk over the mud which has been made wet again by the rain (after smiting the Kerrek). Next, go to the screen with the hay, and JUMP IN HAY. With your disguise on, sneak down and grab the loot. When the Jhonka asks if you stole the gold, tell him NO.

  • qat Says:

    I know I need to get to the middle of the lake, but how the heck do you do it? You can’t throw the feed from the edge and there doesn’t seem to be a way in.

  • IanGowen Says:

    stand so you’re pretty much parallel with the fisherman’s boat, then say “throw feed”.

  • JimboGarciaValdez Says:

    I’m stinky, but I need a robe and fire. Help me, Obi-Wan Crazeman, you are our only hope…

  • emmavii Says:

    Come now! I’ve done the boat/feed thing, I don’t have anything to give mendelev and his brother, I’ve frightened gary, can’t get past kerrek, don’t know what to do with the naked man in the tree, HELP ME. please!

  • warp2063 Says:

    To get the soda bottle, you have to throw the baby in the lake that’s on the right side of the screen. To get the baby, you have to give the riches to the lady.

  • warp2063 Says:

    And if anyone cares, there is a map that you can pick up. LOOK at your burninated hut. There’s an unburnt scrap of paper that you can pick up. Just type MAP to use it. Anyway, I’m stuck on the naked man too. I have arrow(used but got a new one), baby, kerrek belt, chicken feed(used), SuperTime FunBow TM, monster maskus, pebbles(used), pills, riches(used), soda, super trinket(used) and shirt. Oh, and the pebbles that you pick up by the lake go in the well bucket, if anyone is wondering.

  • FeatherPen Says:

    How do I smite the Kerrek?

  • warp2063 Says:

    Just type shoot kerrek. However, you need the bow and an arrow to do that. You can get the mask from the well as I just typed above. You use the mask to scare the horse. Go through the hole he makes, say haldo, take an arrow, and go to the archery range. Give them the trinket from the bushes around the lady’s house, and they’ll let you play until you win, and they’ll give you the bow. Then, just find the Kerrek, type SHOOT KERREK (quickly, before he gets you), and that should be it.

  • warp2063 Says:

    MAKE SURE to take Kerrek’s belt. And the rain will turn the dried mud puddle wet.

  • warp2063 Says:

    MAKE SURE to take Kerrek’s belt. And the rain will turn the dried mud puddle wet.

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    When I try to throw the baby in the right half lake it says You already fed the fish. When I try the otherside it says to go in the middle because its deeper but no matter where I try it dosnt work. How do I get a robe and what do I do with the naked man. I assume they are related because the innkeeper hinted at it. I also assume once I get the robe the fire will become apparent, probobly involving the candle. Thanks for your help.

  • warp2063 Says:

    Up higher it says you have to throw the bait in at a point roughly the same height as the boat? Well, go to that same height on the other side of the lake and throw in the baby. I’m still stuck on the naked man though.

  • warp2063 Says:

    Wait… candle? Do you mean the lantern?

  • conorvansmack Says:

    how do you use the mask. I’ve tried “wear mask”, “put on mask”, and “use mask” but they don’t work. “Scare horse” hasn’t worked either.

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    ok got the soda throw the baby by the top little pointy deep blue part of the lake.
    anyone past the naked man?

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    ya just guessin on the lantern/candle

  • warp2063 Says:

    Did you try wear mask on the screen with the horse? Do you have the mask yet? When it’s on, walk up to the horse with it.
    Anyway, I just solved the naked man thing… I think. I said Talk Tree. It mentioned naked ned. When the guy appeared, I said “talk Naked Ned”. He told me never to speak of this.

  • conorvansmack Says:

    Aha! I had it at one point, but that was probably before I got pounded by the kerrek.

    Thanks!

  • warp2063 Says:

    No problem, guys! If anyone can help me get any further on this Naked Ned thing, that’d be great!

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    Ok archers are creeped out by ned and innkeeper wonders about neds robes buts thats all. Jhonka thinks I am naked ned?

  • warp2063 Says:

    How did you tell them about naked ned?

  • Dubya Says:

    You already fed the fish lets get moving how do i throw the baby

  • warp2063 Says:

    I already said above how to throw the baby.
    Up higher it says you have to throw the bait in at a point roughly the same height as the boat? Well, go to that same height on the other side of the lake and throw in the baby. I’m still stuck on the naked man though.

  • FeatherPen Says:

    It’s called a “maskus” Type “Use Maskus”

  • Nick Ciske Says:

    Who thought to throw the baby in the lake? Is there a hint in the game or are some people just that twisted?

  • warp2063 Says:

    Please, read the above comments before asking questions. At this point, I’ve listed almost every single thing you have to do up to the point I’m stuck at – 64 points.

  • dubya Says:

    ses it in the preview

  • warp2063 Says:

    When I watched the preview for the game, the character says throw baby. That’s how I thought of it.

  • dubya Says:

    how do i get the robe no one sed how

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    type ask about naked ned to the people

  • warp2063 Says:

    The only people who have gotten past that point have neglected to tell everyone else how. I’m stuck there too. Help solve the puzzles!

  • dubya Says:

    which tree is it?

  • Jimmy T-Bag Says:

    Ok im a nub but how do you get the trinket from outta the bushes?

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    alright baby gets meatball sub from well

  • warp2063 Says:

    The guard at the foot of the mountain says that he used to live in west peasantry- my guess is the locked house

  • warp2063 Says:

    to get the trinket out of the bushes, talk to the lady in the house with open door, talk man. then walk up to a bush, check bush, get berries. you’ll have to check all the bushes. the last one has the trinket

  • dubya Says:

    no one has told which tree it is

  • Kenny Says:

    the four bushes around the house with the woman

  • dubya Says:

    k naked ned disapeared what do i do

  • warp2063 Says:

    still working on that… when I got the sub, it said I almost had a combo meal, minus the chips…. did ned dissapear permanently or does he show up again if you look there again?

  • peasant Says:

    Go to Naked Ned’s cottage, “use stone” to reveal a hole in the cottage, and “use baby” to get the door open.

  • warp2063 Says:

    use what stone?

  • dubya Says:

    what do i type while hes there no one will help me

  • warp2063 Says:

    while who is there? be more specific? and Nick, help us some please

  • dubya Says:

    thnx got robe

  • warp2063 Says:

    I’m still not getting into this house… how do I get the robe? I typed get stone.. but still nothing

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    type get stone then use baby
    now my guess is i go sleep in inn and i wake up and its dark like in preview and lantern is lit…just guessin ill fill you guys in

  • Kenny Says:

    Won with a 149/150. Still didn’t have one item. No idea what I’m missing.

  • Kenny Says:

    Oh, the item I’m missing is the item before the shirt. It comes up with the hit return for description thing, but no description available.

  • dubya Says:

    how do i fight trogdor?

  • dubya Says:

    how do i wake trogdor

  • conorvansmack Says:

    yeah, 149/150 for me too. I’m not sure what I’m missing.

    To fight trogdor, try throwing/using items.

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    i am missing the same item but i only have 134 points and heep getting burninated. what did you do kenny?

  • josh Says:

    type “pull stone”

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    oops late post sry

  • warp2063 Says:

    I only got 139/150. Where did I go wrong? I have every item except the one….

  • dubya Says:

    how do i fight trogdor?>

  • warp2063 Says:

    throw sword

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    ok “beat” the game if you can call it that. only had 141 points though.

  • warp2063 Says:

    still fun and cool ending, but I don’t know why I’m missing those last 11 points

  • warp2063 Says:

    did you feed the guys or answer the questions? does that make a difference in score?

  • Jack Hare Says:

    My best score so far has been 134/150 after reaching the end…there’s two spaces still left in inventory, I’m guessing one of them is a bag of chips and someone mentioned having pills? Anyone know how to get either of these?
    Incidentally, you get one point for closing the drawer again after getting the robe.

  • warp2063 Says:

    the drawer is good info… to get the pills, give the baby to the man in the inn

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    were you supposed to use the shirt for anything?

  • warp2063 Says:

    I haven’t found a use for it

  • heather Says:

    im guessing youre supposed to give the shirt to naked ned but i cant figure out how!

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    did all those things mentioned still missing 9 points

  • warp2063 Says:

    i doubt it… I think the shirt is just there for your wearing pleasure

  • iserperson Says:

    how do you scare the horse with the mask

  • warp2063 Says:

    read the column, it’s all been said above

  • heather Says:

    i doubt ts just there for your wearng pleasure…why else would it be listed there? nobody else has figured out what to do about naked ned… im on a mission to give him the shirt dammit! lol

  • iserperson Says:

    it didn’t work

  • Kenny Says:

    Talk to trogdor after you throw the sword to get another 20 points

  • iserperson Says:

    how do you scare the horse

  • warp2063 Says:

    It’s called a “maskus” Type “Use Maskus”

  • iserperson Says:

    i tyried that

  • Immortal Rabbit Says:

    ooo sweet 151!

  • warp2063 Says:

    you’ve gotta read the whole column. virtually everything that CAN be done has been done and said here

  • iserperson Says:

    i tried that

  • heather Says:

    “use mask” to scare the horse

  • iserperson Says:

    tried it

  • Mandy Says:

    how do I get the mask? i threw the pebbles down, but when I bring the bucket up, its empty. I don’t know what to do.

  • heather Says:

    so did i and it worked 😛

  • warp2063 Says:

    if you are wearing the mask by the horse, just walk up to it

  • warp2063 Says:

    if you are wearing the mask by the horse, just walk up to it

  • Kenny Says:

    I got four bullseyes. I’m wondering if you get an extra point for the fifth, but they won’t let me play any more.

  • heather Says:

    you type Put stones in bucket

  • iserperson Says:

    how do you put on the mask

  • warp2063 Says:

    stand by the horse, type wear maskus. It should run off. stand to the RIGHT of the horse. for those of you who can’t figure it out, everything in this game seems to work by standing directly to the right of the target. only a few things (like the bushes) work in front

  • iserperson Says:

    tried it

  • Nick Ciske Says:

    I’ve posted a complete walk-through here:

    http://www.nickciske.com/fun/pqwt/

  • Jack Hare Says:

    Well, the score comes out the same whether you answer the trivia questions or give the sandwich etc. to the Keepers — 149/150. Still missing 1 point and 1 inventory item: whatever goes between the TrogSword and the Shirt…

  • heather Says:

    152/150! haha

  • iserperson Says:

    thanks for the walkthrough

  • warp2063 Says:

    wow… what a way to spend my day! Props to whoever made this game! I liked it a lot! And it was fun solving the puzzles with all of you guys too! Thanks everyone!

  • iserperson Says:

    you forgot to write get the pebbles in the bucket

  • iserperson Says:

    i mean to say where to get the pebbles in the walkthrough

  • warp2063 Says:

    no he didn’t, it’s up higher in the guide

  • Jack Hare Says:

    Keen…now the only question remaining is how Heather got the bonus points. 😀

  • notbeinguseful Says:

    How’d you get 151 immortal? I finally got 150/150 after cheating and reading here with you chumps.

    Some tidbits you may miss or are too lazy to scroll up and read.
    Baby:
    -in bucket at well
    -throw into lake(not the fisher side!)
    -innkeeper
    -ned’s cottage (of course)
    Being nice: close ned’s drawer after getting robe.
    Extra arrow (I forget if this gets you points, but you can do it, and it lauds you for trying)
    Talking to Trogdor! (reward is hilarious simulated internal speaker speech)

  • Buckeroo Says:

    151? And here I was pleased because I got 150/150. I should have known the Chaps would include a little extra something. And I’m not referring to closing the drawer, I did that. But I also still had an empty slot in the inventory between the shirt and the Trogsword.

  • Kico Says:

    Woot 151! I used to love spacequest and kingsquest. Played them all back in the day. I was just a bitty baby then, getting thrown into ponds and the like everyday. Homestar rocks.

  • jhanon Says:

    the highest score I could get was 152/150 because I hit all five arrows in the target game. You get a point for each bullseye. Also, don’t forget to go back and get another arrow for an additional point.

  • Straker Says:

    number of bullseyes you hit is irrelevant, and no, you don’t get another point for getting another arrow 🙁

  • softserve Says:

    Ways to die:

    1. Kerrek bashes you
    2. Archer shoots you
    3. Jhonka kills you
    4. Horse kicks you
    5. You leave baby in well
    6. Boulder crushes you
    7. Type in ‘die’
    8. Trogdor burninates you

    Has anyone found others??

  • Dark_Void Says:

    OK
    It seems there WAS a glitch that allowed you to get an extra 2 points for collecting a 2nd arrow (FROM THE TREE, NOT FROM KERREK) but this glitch has been fixed. Although you can still take the arrow it says something like “You take another arrow IN SEARCH OF BONUS POINTS” but you get NO points. Also scoring 5/5 on the arrow game makes no difference at all. So currently I think the best you can get is 150/150

  • Dark_Void Says:

    P.S. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was secrets involving nakid ned, the bird that flies by while climbing the mountain and the waterfall. But I also wouldn’t be surprised if there isn’t.

  • prefrosh Says:

    Nick Ciske and all those who contributed to the walk through, BRAVO!! You guys all rock! I was having the hardest time getting those damn arrows near the bullseye so thank you. I never had so much fun playing a video game!

    -jen

  • GoNINzo Says:

    BTW, the sub is what you get from putting the baby in the well, and you give it to the first guy instead of answering the question.

  • crazeman Says:

    What the crap! when i posted my spoiler there were like 2 posts from people who played the game. now there are like 90 that came out since yesterday when i posted last. Good game response. Instant classic. Also, i tried to give the robe and the shirt to ned. Doesn’t work. There appears to be something involving Ned and a string bikini, as hinted by the jhonka. Who posted something calling me “Obi-wan Crazeman”? I found that funny. If you’re looking for tips, warp2063 is the best bet! HALO24EVR!!!!!

  • oman24 Says:

    I beat the game at 152 of 150 points but i still didn’t get every item i was missing the one in between the shirt and the trog sword

  • Jay Says:

    138 out of 150. That was SO awesome. The baby thing was frustrating though. It kept telling me I needed to go to the MIDDLE of the lake. I assumed that meant I needed the fisherman’s boat.

    Still, a small quibble. Great game!

  • crazeman Says:

    helloooo…? anybody out there? Naked Ned??? what does he do??? Bye

  • Stratocaster Says:

    This is a really awesome game!

    Someone mentioned something about how did you know to throw the baby in the lake, and a lot of people got it off the trailer but I didn’t even know there was a trailer. So I am really twisted to throw the baby in the lake (because on the help screen before the game starts it says you can throw items), yep…

    You can also do so much in this game by typing things in like “what the f***” gives you a reply and “look at trees” gives you one, its crazy!

    I always get 149/150, one item (between the trogsword and shirt).. any ideas on what to do?

  • Sara Says:

    149/150. Close enough.

  • smoovez Says:

    I found a glitch in the game.
    Allows you to walk where you shouldn’t 🙂

    go to the extra screen where the archer is.
    walk outside the fence and north (a little bit of a pain to do).
    You will be magically transported inside(or is it outside) the lady’s house. outside meaning… it’s the inside view of the house but you can walk around behind the house.

    well it’s too hard to explain, but it’s there

  • skoolbus Says:

    I got 151 and I didn’t even talk to Naked Ned. I did close the drawer after I stole the robe. I can’t think of anything else I did to get the extra point.

  • crazeman Says:

    Man! It gives you a lot of crap for being mean to the baby, like: “okay, Father of the year”,”you throw the baby in the lake, somehow thinking that it is a good idea”, “Aw Jeez Man! At least give him a fighting chance!”, etc. I find it hilarious. New way to die: it calls it the boulder crushing you, but a bird can knock you off the cliff. Also, check out http://www.campchaos.com I have nothing to do with Camp Chaos, I just find their cartoons funny. And if you don’t, don’t give me crap about it!

  • Ryan Says:

    Well, I got 152, but still haven’t figured out ned yet. So I did some internet research on Naked Ned. There was an insurance case (called naked ned) about this guy who hurt his back while doing some naked gardening. And there is a toy called naked ned. He is this rubber dude with suction cup hands and he’s only wearing boxers. And he’s going bald just like the ned in the game. Well, maybe this will help someone figure it out

  • Hufejuice Says:

    Ned is the owner of the robe, if you haven’t figured it out. If you look at the robe in the inventory, it has the initials N.N sewn on it. My assumption is he is just there for comedic reasons, since you can finish at over 100% and still do nothing with him, i still dont know why you have the shirt in the inventory… that still bugs me.

  • Ry-Ry Pauly Says:

    I beat the game, and my own meat. 150/150. Great game. I love Trogdor a lot.

  • crazeman Says:

    Nobody’s posted in a while, huh?

  • Rooney304 Says:

    I suck at the archery
