Quest for Glory 2: Trial by Fire

Here's a trick for the classic game, Quest for Glory 2: Trial by Fire by Sierra On-Line. This trick enables you to get all the money you desire. You'll lose all the money near the end of the game, but spend all you want until then. All you do is visit the Dervish at the desert oasis. Get some of his beard off the tree. Return to Shapier and go to the Magic Shop. Sell the Beard to the shop keeper for money. You can repeat this as many times as you want, without getting more beard.
THIEF
TIP: when creating a thief, use the bonus points on Throwing, Stealth, and Lock Picking. You learn swimming from another source.

Click the gate where the 2 guards are and you enter the Hall of Kings. Cross the floor to be greeted by Logos and Rakeesh. When Logos is done talking, talk to him and scroll all choices to choose each one so you don’t miss anything, particularly the one to agree to enter the Rites of Rulership.

Also talk to Rakeesh on all topics. Finally, exit the Hall. Go screen right past the arena to a sunning rock and click on Rakeesh. He gives you a Magic Grapnel.
